February's victories (ok, early march, but still)

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Okay...so this is late, but better late than never, right? Right...

Ok...umm..oh yea...victories

So scale victories?...umm, not so much..well, I'm about the same I guess...I weighed in yesterday at 201...but I have weighed my lowest this month at 198.8....score! I also got my body fat down to 39% but it's back up at 41%.... But that's just about what I've been at...so no more or less is better than a gain..I also lost an inch around my hips...well, if I measured right...

Clothes victories? You betcha! Last year, I wore my dress pants between 3 pairs of pants, black, khaki, and gray....I put away the gray pants over the summer because they were just too big...I still wear the black pants, they have extra elastic in the waist that still makes them hold on me, but they are definitely big on me...and. My khaki pants I wore religiously last year, I used them towards the beginning of the year. I tried them on yesterday,they are huge! They don't even touch me and they look horribly proportioned with a belt on.....so currently, I wear my new brown dress pants and my semi loose black pants...but I am alternating them with skirts that I fit a little better in as well

Exercise victories? Better believe it! Okay..so today, I made it through a whole body combat class without being in dire need of deodorant after the first two minutes...umm, major score! I can also do some more of the ab exercises and I'm not totally dying until 45 minutes as opposed to the being tired after the warm up...and I no longer give the fat on the sides of my tummy bruises from all the punching, and that, is totally worth it...

Pain tolerance? Eek, decreasing....ok, I can totally tell I'm working out...everything squeaks, cracks, pops, and is painful...as a side note, I can totally take the pain...except for my knees...they just kill me....I can't believe how amazing I feel after aqua zumba, honestly, I think I could run a marathon....until the next morning..then they hurt again...but it isn't a constant pain, it's only when I bend my knees in the squatting motion (so picking something up, etc) or kneeling on the ground....I am definitely going to ask my nutritionist if there is something that could help me with my knees...it's the Only thing that really hurts on me...

Popularity? Rising! I'm a movie star! Ok, not really, but my body combat teacher had to submit a video of her instructing and I am totally on it, not really willingly, but she needed people to come and I can't pass up body combat!

Non related victory....I changed my face wash from proactive (pricey) to a more natural oil method and don't fully hate the results...I'm getting the same or slightly less number of breakouts, without the harsh chemicals, which I really like........with the proactive, I used to get this weird dry area below my right (yup, just right) eye...it looked slightly umm, bad...and then when I put lotion on it, it looked like somebody punched me....someone talked to me about leaving an abusive relationship at the restaurant....yea, it looked bad.....so i will take my new method and try my darnedest to remember to stay with it....

Hmmm...what other issues have resolved themselves? Goodness, I don't know...

Things I need to work on for march....

I need to start running...only 12 weeks...eek!
I need to start lifting...
I need to start using my exercise ball I bought....
I need a gym bag....I found the cutest most adorable bag, but it is 70 dollars...but for some reason, I just can't get it out of my head...yea, I know...need to move on, the will be a cuter bag, I just gotta keep looking...and find it soon...
I need to stop stressing...serious built up tension for nothing...
I need to get serious on nutrition...I know I'm not losing weight because I've been consuming too much sugar in the form of pancakes and syrup, but umm, how do resist if you grew up working at a pancake house your whole life and are currently working there?
I need to get back to sleeping..I'm exhausted early but get wide awake when I go to bed...that has to stop...

I need a lot of things...but I'll keep plugging away on it

Okay, I have no idea what else is remotely important to say...so umm, this is all I got...have a great night!

    You've had a lot of victories - so happy for you! Good luck on your training, you will rock the half marathons, I can tell. You have so much energy and wonderful spirit! On the calories, have you tried tracking yet? It is the only thing that keeps me honest with myself. But I feel you working in a restaurant! Our family had one for awhile too and my kids grew up in it. Mmmm love good food and I definitely put on some pounds! No longer though, it is gone now but the pounds keep coming and going! Enjoy your week!
