A little venting never hurt anyone.

Friday, January 20, 2012

It has been a weird week. I am just going to vent:

I went from counting out my baby carrots (last week) and hitting the gym HARD to zero this week. How does that happen?? I mean, I did have a stomach ache so I wasn¡¦t able to work out, and ate very bland aka carb city because I wasn¡¦t sure if it was a virus. Lately, I feel like I can¡¦t catch a break! Ahh! And now I woke up to my mom being sick with a stomach flu ¡V I want to scream! I hate winter and I hate getting sick. Blah. I hope I don¡¦t pick up whatever she has. But chances are, I will. ƒ¼ I hope this weird stomach ache (it may be nerves) goes away soon so I can go back to the gym. I haven¡¦t ran in¡K.I don¡¦t know how long. (No bueno, that is my momentum!) I did well last week eating/fitness wise that when I weighed in I lost 7 lbs to pick me back in the 150s. 157 to be exact. Although, I am not weighing in this week (cause I just don¡¦t feel like I have made any progress from this yucky feeling all week). I will weigh in on Monday, hoping to have lost something. Anything. I just want to stay in the 150s for now. Until spring hits, which I KNOW will motivate me to shred this fat off. And my ultimate goal for this year is to do a mud run, probably Warrior Dash. I am not sure I could handle Tough Mudder just yet. Thinking about it gets me excited¡KYAY! =)

Side note.

On Monday, I went to get my oil changed/tires rotated at the dealership. While I was waiting for it, one of the managers came over to me while keeping my niece amused playing in the display cars (He probably wasn¡¦t happy, oh well.). They are always extra-friendly, in hopes you will buy your next car from them and I jokingly said ¡§Oh I already bought a car from you¡K¡¨ and he was like ¡§that¡¦s right¡¨. He shook my hand, looking at me strange and was like, ¡§you look different. Is it your hair? Was it always blonde¡K?¡¨ And in the back of my mind I was like ¡§Ughhh no, I lost 50 pounds¡¨ but instead I was like ¡§nope, I¡¦m the same¡¨. Because part of me doesn¡¦t want to be remembered as that fat girl I once was. I bought my car in August 2010 so it has been quite a while since he has seen me. It was just a good feeling to know that even almost complete strangers notice. ƒº

Ok back to reality.

I think I cheered myself up just by writing this blog.

I AM going to start back at the gym on Monday, fierce as ever.

I AM going to go grocery shopping for fresh veggies, fruits, and strictly healthy food this weekend.

I AM going to start packing my daily healthy salads for lunch.

I AM going to drink at least 10 cups of water per day.

I AM going to weigh in next week.

I AM going to lose at least a pound next week.

Sometimes I just need to put my thoughts on paper. Or a computer screen, I guess.

Happy Friday Sparkies! ļ

    you blog, we support....basic "rules" of Spark friends!
50lbs is a lot of weight to have lost so don't be shy about it. most people cannot really judge how much you weigh unless they are weighing people every day (like nurses).
Glad you have a plan for next week and we will cheer loudly for that pound that has left your body....not lost in case you go looking!
best wishes, Sandra

    Put it down in writing and for everyone to see ... best way to stay on track! Accountability is a powerful weapon! And I highly, highly, highly recommend a mud run ... I did the Warrior Dash in Aug (NC) and it was AWESOME. I'm planning on doing it again this year, but hoping to squeeze in the Spartan Sprint and (hopefully) the Tough Mudder ... but as you said, the TM is pretty darn hard. haha And let's not forget my goal to hit my first marathon this year (the furthest I've gone is 7.5 miles, so I have a ways to go).

Keep writing - and don't beat yourself up for small setbacks. Pick yourself up and get back at it. You can do it!

    Hope your tummy ache goes away soon!! It's hard to eat right not to mention exercise when your tummy feels yucky!!

Good luck finding your motivation again. Winter seems to just bring us all down and sometimes it's impossible to push through.
