I will keep my membership for now - if anything it helps me stay focused lol <BR> <BR> But I'm wondering if moving from a "gym" frame of mind to a "fitness is everywhere" frame of mind is something for me. Would it be easier and more "do-able" for me if I was able to go out to the garage or hit the pavement? <BR> <BR> My concern is timing. I would have mornings or evenings. I can't get up in the morning or the baby will wake up. Evenings I am s... Tue, 23 Jul 2013 19:41:11 EST Progress must be made!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5429488 I'm back after a week hiatus. Whew....my mantra for today - progress, not perfection. I love it. I could obsess over my poor week, or I could just move on. I am doing the latter. <BR> <BR> SO, this week I am going to bite the bullet and accept nobody is going to watch the baby while I go to the gym so I can listen to music. No music. Big fat Buuuuuuh. Ah me. The sacrifices we make for our little ones :). The bright side is I will focus on my form. <BR> <BR> And - I will recognize n... Mon, 22 Jul 2013 14:30:10 EST This week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5423336 Boy this last week was patchy. Only two runs, two burpee challenge days, missed meal logging, and overall unhealthier food choices. Four nights of approximately 3 hrs a night will do that I guess. <BR> <BR> I'm using sleeping aids right now. I resolve to get back on track this week. My weight is fluctuating in the low 180's, but I am losing inches. <BR> <BR> Tue, 16 Jul 2013 18:51:44 EST Back from San Diego - how I did.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5414697 Not good, but not horrible lol <BR> <BR> I didn't stick to the plan, track my food, or exercise....however, I didn't binge, wasn't excessively eating sugar, and I didn't stress. I learned some lessons but I'm not beating myself up either. <BR> <BR> I came home and weighed myself - up about two lbs. Not bad! <BR> <BR> We came home yesterday and I didn't track my food, didnt exercise. I worked out today and will do my best with tracking my food tonight. I feel that not stressing is a... Mon, 8 Jul 2013 18:55:17 EST Working myself up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5408845 Today I can confidently say I will stay on track in San Diego. I will have a light breakfast of egg and toast (300 cals), fruits for snacks (100), fish tacos for lunch (600), and I will keep dinner under 600 cals, including a cocktail. Do-able! Also, I will need to fit in two runs, so there's that. Our rental has a gym, and I can do burpees anywhere, so no excuses there. <BR> <BR> Oh man - a Beard Papas is opening up at our local mall. Right near the kids playground. I LOVE cream puffs... Tue, 2 Jul 2013 18:07:40 EST Feeling celebratory, buuuuut http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5407548 So, I'm super happy and proud that I've lost over 15 lbs - well, 17 because I'm counting :) in a few weeks that number CAN be 20 lbs lost....but I've got this vacation coming up. Lord knows I love to eat on vacation. But I want to come back slim even more. When I'm 175 I will be the lowest I've weighed in eight years!!! Since I got married!!! Surely THAT is motivation to watch my portions, right? Right. If I shove my face I will push myself back several weeks. If I keep my healthy ha... Mon, 1 Jul 2013 14:30:10 EST San Diego, the scale... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5404872 I'm still pretty nervous about San Diego. I've always lost control on vacations. I'm trying to think of what I can do to stay in check. I can eat light all week for an extra splurge meal. We are renting a house, so we plan to eat breakfast and dinner there...we ARE on vacation, so we want to hit up San Diego's best fish taco places for lunch....I guess I should count on each taco being 200 calories? Proly 300 if battered and fried. I can load up on watermelon and pineapple for early mor... Fri, 28 Jun 2013 19:01:22 EST Scratching my head.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5403883 Ok - so I'm following Sparks food and excersize....and I'm not where I should be on my tracker timeline....I'm meeting my nutrition....I just started working out last week....should I change my goal? It's pretty disheartening to see that I should be ten lbs lighter by now :P. <BR> <BR> My weight went back down, but went up again. Water retention? New workout intensity? Gotta hang in there..... <BR> <BR> OH and vacation to San Diego next weekend....boy, that's gonna be hard.....what if ... Thu, 27 Jun 2013 19:38:29 EST Weight down again buuuuut.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5399230 Hooray for weight going back down!!! BOO for eating like crap :p I have stuck to my high calorie range going over by a little yesterday, but MAN have I been eating like crap. Too much sugar again, and eating out so much since Thursday....this morning the scale was the lowest it's been since my lowest back in 2010 from 5k training pre-baby....I was 180 then, and am 183 today...but still...I was fitter from running.... <BR> <BR> I was so de-motivated that not only have I been eating junk bu... Sun, 23 Jun 2013 14:52:13 EST Irritated, but I know I gotta calm the frack down.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5395463 So, I'm irritated lol <BR> <BR> I was too tired to do my first at-home full body strength training. I'm too shy and feel too stupid to use the gym to lift weights. I'm just going to have to make a decision - if I'm not motivated enough to to my work at home, I will have to get over myself and get some help for the gym. Buh. <BR> <BR> Next, I ran the day before but had some small splurges within my calorie range. I don't know which it was, but I'm up a little over a pound today. I know ... Wed, 19 Jun 2013 17:46:28 EST Made it to the gym, YAY! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5392827 Well, my son and I made it to the gym today, YAY!!! I started my 5k training as planned....I feel super good and totally motivated! Next I will sign up for a race for end of September so I stay on track....after that I have a really simple goal....I want to be fit enough to run three miles in the morning and swim for an hour in the evenings. Random, I know, but that is what I want to be able to do daily. Anyway, hooray for gym time! My son is still super-needy...the onsite daycare was pag... Tue, 18 Jun 2013 02:03:30 EST June goal came and went.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5388141 So, my June goal came and went. I'm not upset about it. I've had so many stressors - too many inlaws visiting and living with us. Holidays - always holidays. <BR> <BR> My son and I just got back from visiting our family in CO. I ate a ton of sweets as usual - again, I eat treats with my dad. My dad and food are a common thing here. I binged twice, which is better than the whole trip like before. I usually come back to CA at least five lbs heavier - I'm back to my lowest weight of 18... Thu, 13 Jun 2013 14:56:02 EST New Year, new ways http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5186832 This is my first blog. I'm excited about it, even though I'm blogging with my tail between my legs. I had a six pound weight loss in December (yay me!). However, I stopped tracking my calories and binged for days, telling myself that I shouldn't "waste" food we made for the holidays. <BR> <BR> In my house growing up, food was a big deal. Between my sister, my two step brothers, and our half brother, money was tight. Dad worked very hard to provide, and his big thing was to always have... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 19:32:35 EST
