Memorial Day Weekend Blog....
Sunday, May 27, 2012
Okay...so it's Sunday right now. Long holiday weekends really make it hard to avoid bad food!!
Last week was a little rough because I haven't been on SparkPeople at all. Our computer wouldn't work suddenly so we had to take it in the the apple store in Tampa to get doctored up. They were re-doing their backroom so it delayed things because they didn't have the space to work on all the computers they had. It was so strange not having our computer all week because we would be sitting around the apartment thinking, "Oh, I'm gonna look this or that up...oh wait, I can't." LOL. My husband has an iphone, but I really wasn't into sparking on it because the app is very basic, and I need a lot of room to do what I'm gonna do, haha.
Needless to say....without my computer/sparkpeople...I REALLY slacked. I still ate decent, but I didn't log calories or anything so I don't know which days I stayed under and which days I went over. I didn't keep up with the "Spring Into Shape Bootcamp" since I couldn't access the videos. I didn't do my walks either...I mostly focused on getting schoolwork done and did a lot of evening sleeping. Lame, I know. I should of at least done my walks...but I just slacked I guess. I didn't even do my weigh-in for Sunday May 20th because I FELT fat and didn't want to know the truth because I thought, "well, I can't post it on sparkpeople anyways." Today is Sunday and I forgot to weigh myself before breakfast and beginning my 78oz of water-a-day regime. I'm going to go weigh myself now anyways....I'm sure it won't be less than before, especially with my breakfast and some water in me already. It's going on 1pm. Be right back...
157.8...bummer!!!! But, it's ok!! We'll keep on' keepin' on....like the chase commercial...lol, I like that song. It's like the theme to my life now.
My upcoming endeavor is the Jillian Micahel's 30 Day Shred I've decided. I tried the video about two years ago and only did it for a few days. I know! I slack and become so demotivated....I never finish anything it seems, but I REALLY want to!!! I suppose I don't get forceful enough with myself :( I did the video about 4 days ago for the first time in a loooong time. Yep, it about killed me. I didn't keep up completely, but GOSH was I ssssooooorrrreeee for the next few days! It killed me to sit down or walk down the stairs, Today is the first day I feel like I might be able to tackle it again without injuring myself and hopefully I'll feel more strength just from doing it for the first time a few days ago.
Wish me strength!!! I'm discontinuing the Spring into Shape Boot camp to continue the Jillian Michaels video now. I guess I get bored easy. :(
Also...stayed tuned for a possible upcoming "birthday countdown." I might copy our fellow sparker KIMMAS82 (I love her blogs!!) and do a count down towards my next birthday (in November). I need to think about what a reasonable goal would be for then and what I want to do for my birthday. Well, let me be honest...I want to go to PFChangs with friends/family, then to the casino in a sexy black dress and heels and waste at least 200$ on the slot machines. LOL! But, I'll let you know what's up.
