I remember the fallen
My thoughts go out to all troops who have sacrificed so much for all of us. I miss my own soldier boy! I can't wait for him to get home so we can make babies!! LOL.
I have been looking forward to reading June goals from everyone allllll day. I haven't seen the first blog on it yet. I supposed everyone else is actually away from their computers today. Go figure. LOL
No parties for me. I'm getting my hair did and then coming back to the house to relax, so when some of yous get to writing your blogs, let me know. I love reading them. kthanx.
As for me
Weight lost: Is hard to tell. I got sick and my weight shot down to 224 on the 30th of April and then shot back up to 229 on the 1st of May. It took two weeks to see 224 again. I was 221 today so I lost weight! Victoriously!
My lowest weight of the month was 219.4. That was on my 12 hour day when I didn't get much to eat so......
I saw a glimpse of my goal weight for the month so I know it's achieveable. I just have to go down a point soon. Rats!
I gained back up this weekend from emotional eating. It seems I may not have the tourist job afterall. The CEO was ready to train me on the tours but the COO acts like he doesn't like me much. He asked me for my resume after I recieved a job offer from the CEO. So I dunno what to think. It had me stressed and upset. I feel that I could handle it and was psyched for it and now it's all up in the air. I sent him my resume and haven't heard a word yet. If I don't hear something by the end of the week I'm calling back demanding a logical explanation.
The other issue:
I am not sure exactly how low I'm going to actually get my calories. My friend MRSCARLY has also talked about this. We have the same exact stomach issues. She is having issues consuming less than 1500 and so am I. We both are hungry if we go below.
Alot of healthy folks can manage by snacking on yogurt, fruit, raw veggies, cottage cheese, or double fiber bread but I can't tolerate that stuff alone. It makes me gassy and bloated due to my stomach condition. I actually do better when I consume higher fats, alot of meat. I can't tolerate milk or soy and almond milk has no protein content. I may have to face the reality that I may never see a body fat % of 25% or below.
At this point I may declare than I will never eat below 1500 because I don't want to go hungry and even if I did, I would feel like I was on a diet. It would never last for me. So basically I willl just have to see how far this goes for me.
I have scaled the tracker down to a goal weight. My goal weight for my wedding which is 180. It's not skinny for my height, it's overweight. But I'd be a much happier bride at 180 than I would 220. I have 41 pounds to go!
My goal weight to kick of summer for the month of June is 215!! I love the thought of seeing 215 again! It's so exciting!
My strategy and main goal for this month is: Exercise!!!
I gotta do it. No excuses. I want to get two AP's per day (Activity Points)
That means I need to devote 25 minutes of moderate exercise, so I'm headed back to the base gym and hopping on an elliptical.
My goal is @ least 25 mins for 16/30 days this month
My second goal is one hour for 4/30 days this month
This means I'm basically shooting for exercise for 20/30 days for the month of June.
June Goal - 215
Medium goal - 199 by my 30th B-day - 9/22/2010
Long-term goal - 180.
Keeping the Spark going!
