The Rededication

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

I know I've written many blogs about being back and on track- then I fall off. Well this time I really mean it. Those blogs before, were more or less me trying to convince myself that i'm back. But now I firmly believe that i am. I'm counting calories and working out as before. It's been months since i've been this dedicated and I'm only on day three. I call this "hell week" that first week when you get back to being serious about weight loss. Oh's pain. After working out two nights in a row I feel like i've been hit by a truck! Ugh! It makes it hard to get back to the gym, but i know i'll get through this as i always have. I will be better for it. I can't wait to meet my goal weight!

Matt and I have talked so much about our future together- I don't want to feel uncomfortable about my body during all of that. I don't want to feel fat and ugly on my wedding day, and i certainly don't want to buy a wedding dress that fits. That's probably my biggest goal of all. An engagement is around the corner for us, and i don't have anymore time to fall off the horse. I need to get my butt in gear and finish this thing. :)

We decided that if either of us screws up and eats something bad...we have to do 100 situps and 30 pushups. We are going to hold each other to it. So..there's another motivation. I am also going to be eating more calories this time around- because 1100 just isn't healthy. Now i'm going to stay between 1300-1400. I just burn too many calories at the gym to eat so little. That was really burning me out. Who knows..maybe it caused my stomach issues.

Either way I am back, and Matt has started working hard to lose weight, and before we know it...we will be the people we always wanted to be. Healthy...Happy and Ready for the next steps in our relationship ;) - and in life! :)

    Hey Sara, sorry I haven't been around. Things got rough and I gave up but now I'm back and ready for round two as well. I'm so happy to see that you are getting yourself back on track, I know that you will do well. You've done it in the past and I know that you'll do it again. =)

Reading this blog really motivates me to want to do well too! I'm starting my "hell week" tomorrow. I've got an hour session with my personal trainer in the morning and I'm sure that she's going to kick my butt. It just kinda sucks right now though because all I can really focus on is strength training. I broke my little toe in two places last week, actually on my birthday, so cardio is pretty much out of the question right now. Anyways.....

You're the first spark friend I had when I started on here and I wanted to add you back again, hope you don't mind. Let's keep each other focused and get to our goal! We can do this!!

    You got this!!! Maybe this is some weird "magical" week, because we both feel different this time. You have to keep trying, even if you have failed in the passed, because if you never try, you're NEVER going to change. You will be a beautiful bride, and with hard work and the dedication to being healthy, you can do it. I'm proud of you for getting back on the wagon. I have gotten on and off SO many times, I can't even count. But who cares?! We are TRYING! You've lost 90 lbs before, you sure as heck can lose the rest. Don't give up, and if you ever need a friend to talk to, I'm here. We will spark on together and stay active on the site. WOOHOOO!

    Sounds like you have a lot of great things to look forward too! I definitely think that 1100 calories is way too low. I ususually end up somewhere between 1300-1450. I think you will find that eating in that range will help you feel better working out and not be hungry all the time!
