Accountability - Bouncing Apple Blossoms

Friday, April 19, 2013

Sadly I have not reached my goals and I am posting this to hold myself accountable. I do track everything I eat and I am making sure I eat as healthy as I can, there are days where I have eaten fast food but I make sure I log them in my nutrition trackers.

Here is my problem the first 3 weeks I made sure I reached all the fitness challenges and I was going to the gym faithfully. Then I broke my tooth and this toothache is horrible emoticon and then I been getting headaches so I decided to skip the gym. I been walking more and doing little exercises here and there at home but I haven't been to the gym. I was going to go today but my face is swollen and I really need to get this tooth pulled.

In the past I had an "all or nothing" attitude about the gym but yes I missed some workouts here and there but I learned I can not have that attitude. Yes I missed some workouts but that doesn't mean I should quit completely. A lot of people have not finished this challenge and I know a lot of people who say they need to lose weight and do nothing about it. I am trying my hardest to change my life style and become smaller and healthier.

I am still suck at 201 pounds some days it goes up others it stays the same. Am I upset about it? Yes. Am I making excuses? No. I know what it is I need to do and I am making progress toward fixing it.

I have not been getting enough sleep, this quarter at school is crazy! I am trying to drink more water emoticon but honestly I can barely get 8 glasses but at least I get 2 (a small bottle). I have been making sure to reach my personal challenge of not eating red meat and since I cut out beef my choices at fast food are limited and I like that.

This challenge is almost over and I plan on kicking it in full force the remaining weeks. To my teammates sorry I do not get all the points but I am trying we all are making progress and that makes me happy!

    make sure you get enough sleep... I have been exercising 5 hours a week mostly swimming... watching my calories and still only losing one pound a month or maybe 2... then nothing for a while then 4 pounds this last week or 2... not sure what I did but finally after no progress something is happening... have gone from 189 to 160 so I guess all I can say is don't give up emoticon

    are you seeing any positives in your body, like clothes fitting looser

until you get your tooth fixed working out is going to be hard for you. Also stress makes the body hold on to weight and if you are having that many issues with school, until you realize the weight is going to stay with you
