CHRELIWEI's SparkPeople Blog CHRELIWEI's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Ugh stressful day at work and ate... Like a pig! Why do these days get me and make me eat like CRAZY. I don't even want to tell you what I ate, but I feel so ugh. I had a stressful, busy, annoying day at work with patients yelling at me and saying some smart comments and I hate it! So, what did I do, ATE. I'm stuffed right now, with pastries and milk and fast food and I hate myself. I can choose not to get in my car and drive to the drivethru and walk inside rainbow and pick up these horrible donuts but, I DID. And I have stoppe... Mon, 5 Nov 2012 17:26:30 EST November is off to a good start! The scale moved DOWN! Woo. I'm down a few more pounds, five pounds (!) since my last weigh in. I'm motivated. I'm at it, and I'm ready for November. I think I'll do good. Last night I walked for 50 minutes at the gym and did some weights. Pretty sore today, but worth it. Here's to a great November! :) Thu, 1 Nov 2012 09:30:25 EST 5k motivation So I walked my first (intentional and timed) 5k, 3.1 miles on the treadmill last Wednesday. I clocked in at 59:25. Eh. Did some running mixed in there. I want to get it down, obviously. I want to be able to run more also. I attempted another 5k yesterday, but I got halfway and was burned out. I am just coming off of being horribly sick since last Thursday and I'm still not better. I probably should ease into it a little better. I did a half 5k yesterday, 28:35 on the treadmill and tonight out... Thu, 25 Oct 2012 22:28:30 EST A new start Last week was soooooo soo soo so stressful! It was work. We started using this new computer system and it's such a nightmare learning everything and going thru getting patient's registered and this and that, doing so much more than we were used to. I didn't do ANY walking at all during the week, I ate really badly, even getting fast food when I didn't even want to eat it. It tasted like cardboard, but I still ate it! Like three or four times last week. UGH! I didn't exericse. I stayed at home... Mon, 1 Oct 2012 09:18:24 EST 101 days to go... Until I leave for Africa! I'm determined. I had some set backs this weekend which was not working out and not eating how I wanted to. But, that's life. I thought about it yesterday, while chowing down on Burger King for lunch and KFC for dinner... that I wasn't going to let this be it again. I've done it time and time again where I start a program and then fall back into bad eating habits, and I give up. NOT THIS TIME! I realized, everyone has set backs, I do for sure. And I pretty much alway... Tue, 18 Sep 2012 15:56:46 EST The elliptical I remember in high school and past high school I was able to do the elliptical machine for 30 minutes, 45 and up to an hour at a time. I got on the elliptical for the first time in a while about two weeks ago. I was struggling. I made it up to twenty minutes, almost dying of a heart attack by then. (Not seriously, but that's what it seemed like lol) I mean, that's good. But it's just what I used to be able to do versus what I can do now seems like it's horrible! <BR> <BR> So, my goal is to w... Thu, 13 Sep 2012 12:21:32 EST Down 4 pounds! I lost four pounds in the last two weeks. Happy because I've been floating around these same ten pounds for like, ever. I was always upset when I was constantly staying the same. But I know why. I wasn't working hard. I would say I was and then I would do everything halfway. I would say I was going to eat better and exercise, and I would for a few days and then give into whatever craving I wanted at the moment. So, for the past week, I've really been doing it. I haven't been perfect, but I've... Mon, 10 Sep 2012 12:37:55 EST I'm going to AFRICA!! Tickets are being purchased this week! I've really turned up the fitness in the past month or so. I really want to have a big loss before we go at the end of December. I was to look good, after all I'm meeting my husband's mom, dad, etc. and friends for the first time in person (!) but most of all I'm afraid of being embarrassed by not being able to fit into seats on the airplane and wherever else. I'm going with my husband and a few of his cousins... all super skinny, can eat whatever and al... Wed, 5 Sep 2012 22:43:41 EST
