I will be hones I had a landslide yesterday of bad things happening... Chocolates at work, potato chips, beers.... ugh. Now today I'm trying to figure out what was the worst. <BR> Chocolates - 5 mini at work <BR> Chips - 3 servings <BR> Beers - 4 pounders <BR> Stir fry dinner. (maybe to salty???) <BR> <BR> Out of that I'm trying to figure out what is making my hands hurt like a 90 year old wom... Fri, 3 Feb 2017 10:17:22 EST Be warned... I'm judging. Food Report... Yes I know it's a dieting website but the dinner I made last night was amazing and worth every calorie look it up. Dinner was Mongolian Beef with some egg drop soup. Family LOVED it. They actually said when we open a restaurant that will be on the menu. <BR> <BR> Go to recipes and search Mongolian Beef. WHOA! it's the really really dark one with the pretty green onions on top. Funny thing is that is EXACTLY how mine looked! <BR> <BR> Exercise report.. Commence Judging... Wed, 25 Jan 2017 09:58:20 EST I'm full.... Ahh, light bulb! Just a little note to recognize a positive..... <BR> Dinner last night was amazing! Cheese burger pie. - Now it doesn't sound to healthy but hey if you only have a little piece of the pie your good to go right? <BR> <BR> So when making my cheese burger pie I thought I needed 2 pies because dang if I make casserole they eat the whole pan. So I thought 1 little 9" meat pie is not going to be enough. So I made 2. In the meat pie I chopped up crimini mushrooms to add a little something healt... Tue, 24 Jan 2017 10:01:49 EST Happy Monday Great news! <BR> I did pretty well this weekend. Okay the scale does not say that I did but I know I did! <BR> Positives: <BR> I worked out. <BR> I only had 3 beers <BR> I waited all day for the yummy yummy dinner I have been wanting for 2 months on Saturday. <BR> I said no to dessert twice <BR> <BR> Negatives: <BR> I ate a yummy yummy dinner out Saturday night (lasagna and pizza) <BR> Last nights dinner is sitting in my gut like a rock. (Steak and scallops and brussel sprouts) <BR> <BR... Mon, 23 Jan 2017 09:16:53 EST Wednesday WOW, eating healthy seems like it takes for EVER to cook. What the heck. I know it's doesn't but it just seems like it. <BR> <BR> Last night was a meal of Cauliflower Alfredo sauce on pasta, chicken sausage, and coated baked zucchini. I thought everything was good but I think it might have been salty because I feel a bit puffy today. The kiddo did not like the zucchini, the husband was not super fond of the pasta... BUT low and behold everyone liked the bread sticks. LOL <BR> <BR> So ve... Wed, 18 Jan 2017 09:55:13 EST Cholesteral at age 9??? Morning Lynn! <BR> Well this weekend was a success believe it or not. I hopped on the scale and I was down 1 LB from last week. Now considering there was a Seahawks game, beer and snacks in my life I was pretty excited. Kiddo and I went to Seattle for dinner but ran out of time so ended up at Subway and that was a great choice. Then I went out to lunch where the food is HUGE and glorious, you know what I'm talking about the greasy spoon in your life where the plate shows up and it's bigger... Tue, 17 Jan 2017 10:19:56 EST Me, Myself, and... My Kiddo! Alrighty then! <BR> Lets break it down and see how it's going. <BR> <BR> Weight - I'm up.... huh, I'm up up and away <BR> Attitude - Very good, up beat and relaxed <BR> Food - Healthier - slowly making better choices <BR> Workouts - 4-5 times a week. Not exercising as hard as in the past but I'm defiantly building and starting to crave the sweat. <BR> <BR> So my kiddo had her Wellness check yesterday and of course her BMI is to high. Just like her mother! Ugh I feel terrible doing this t... Wed, 11 Jan 2017 10:35:12 EST Check the plan I was just getting a text from my friends and I was thinking MAN I'm tired!! So I get up at the crack of dawn... Actually the sun is nowhere near rising when I normally get up since I'm up at 3:25am. If you seen yesterdays schedule for the week I did the right thing, I got my workout in, I got shopping in, made dinner for my family before I went out shopping with my sister... got home late, the power went out in the middle of the night and woke me up... Then I laid there with open eyes unti... Tue, 20 Dec 2016 10:53:24 EST Fat and sassy!?!?! Fat and sassy... That's my feeling today. <BR> <BR> Actually I worked out this weekend, AND during the week but it feels like all I did was eat and drink beer all weekend! Ick, I feel just GROSS this morning but sometimes gross is good because it reals us back in to where and what we should be doing. <BR> <BR> This week's plan: <BR> Today - Cardio after work, then to the mall to do some shopping. I may be going out with my sister tonight to go shopping and dinner. If so..... Maybe I can ... Mon, 19 Dec 2016 08:59:56 EST Weekend planning. Sticking to it... here comes the weekend. ugh. Weekends are hard! <BR> Christmas party on Saturday, Football on Sunday, Out with the ladies on Friday. <BR> <BR> Okay so my plan.... <BR> Drink extra water... Do some cardio... and hope for the best! <BR> <BR> This week - I've tracked my food and worked out all week! So far so good! Week 1 almost complete. <BR> I just have to remember I don't get "free cheat days" because I go way over what a normal human should and so I have to keep c... Fri, 9 Dec 2016 08:44:22 EST Here's what I'm doing for December Made it through the weekend. I guess I should have weighted myself last week but I waited for this week. No change. Yikes this is going to be harder than I thought. <BR> <BR> Great news I hit the gym again yesterday. I know for my big old body the main thing I have to do is exercise. I will start feeling the rush from exercise and that will be it... I will be hooked! I just have to make sure I go. <BR> I set up a couple goals for December: <BR> Workout 4 times a week. <BR> ... Tue, 6 Dec 2016 10:07:54 EST Small choices Morning! <BR> Going into today I know I do not get to work out unless I go very late this evening and well, I'm up at 3:30am so I'm not sure that's going to work, But no problem I have my workout planned for tomorrow. <BR> <BR> Let's recap the tight pants incident yesterday.... Hmmm yep tight I felt terrible but now today my pants are still tight. But I feel better because I made smart choices on my food. Well I should say as smart as I could for the day. I think I really did cut some ... Fri, 2 Dec 2016 08:32:26 EST December 1 - New Years! Okay so my pants are tight before the holidays. THAT cant' be good. <BR> So I got on the scale and it's official...l. +30 pounds in the past year. <BR> <BR> Working working working at work, then taking care of my mom has not done me well. So I am taking today as December 1 - New years day for me. <BR> <BR> I have actually been really trying to watch my intake this week and man it's hard these days. The more tired I am the more I snack and do mindless eating. I know what I'm doing ... Thu, 1 Dec 2016 08:41:43 EST This week..... coming and going..... Nutrition is my struggle - workout is getting better! <BR> <BR> Goal - <BR> 20lbs off by September 15 <BR> <BR> This coming weeks plan - <BR> 1. Eat 3 healthy dinners <BR> 2. Pre Plan for lunches and dinners. <BR> 3. Either sleep or workout during my "trigger time" <BR> <BR> Fails for the past couple of days- <BR> 1. 2 -3 DC a couple of the days. <BR> 2. A couple of beers the other night. <BR> 3. Ate CRAPPY food. <BR> 4. Didn't log it. <BR> <BR> Successes for the past couple of days- ... Sat, 9 Jul 2016 10:55:21 EST Independence Day..... Alrightie then..... I liked yesterdays entry. It put it out there in my brain so when I had the cup of chex mix I thought.... "This is against the plan". <BR> <BR> Today - 4th of July = Independence Day. Independence as a nation but also for me as a person. As I worked out I thought about the day and what it means. I thought this works for me too. I can work to break free of the things that are bringing me down. I can feel more empowered if I just let myself, accept a new beginning. ... Mon, 4 Jul 2016 10:04:17 EST Fails turned to Successes I wrote the plan of attack yesterday. THEN made chex mix. WTF was I thinking? Well it's all good I got it out of my system.... <BR> <BR> Yesterday's fails - <BR> I ordered a DC while out to lunch <BR> I at a bunch of chex mix <BR> I did not drink water <BR> I drank a beer WITH my diet coke at lunch <BR> <BR> Yesterdays Successes - <BR> Lunch was my only DC for the day. <BR> I ate the chex mix in small serving bowl size.... and only 3 bowls for the day. <BR> Water.... well that was a poor... Sun, 3 Jul 2016 10:04:54 EST It's like going home When you feel lost do you find yourself back here? I do...... It's like a safe zone, or it's like going home. <BR> <BR> Here I am with my famous 15-20 on so now I'm taking it off again. I long for the days when I felt FIT like rock hard fit! That was about 3 years ago. <BR> <BR> My body is not cooperating with my fitness goals because this hurts or that hurts and I just can't get past the fatigue. I know if I push myself I can do it so once again here I am. <BR> <BR> Here it goes: ... Sat, 2 Jul 2016 11:08:45 EST Life happens Okay so what makes us over eat? <BR> Stress, being tired, nerves, happy occasions <BR> <BR> What has been happening to me... eat ... eat eat eat.... workout... eat eat eat <BR> Okay So... <BR> <BR> STRESS: <BR> I bought my mom's house about 15 years ago and it came with her in it. Yes not ideal but hey you can't kick your parents out now can you? Things have gone fine for years but OMG this year has been hard. She hurt her back, really it comes out that she's broke her hip. ... Mon, 9 May 2016 10:15:09 EST Ground Zero Ground Zero.... That's what it feels like every time I start a new cardio set. <BR> <BR> Okay I'll be honest and I haven't put a lot of effort into working out the past couple months. I made it through my last challenge 15 pounds down! So awesome! This was done by watching my food. <BR> <BR> Okay now that I'm probably up 10 pounds from actually eating and not working out to hard. LOL I went to the gym yesterday and did 30 minutes of cardio. WOW was that a long 30 minutes. Then I w... Mon, 25 Apr 2016 09:33:10 EST Team Challenge.... Oh god! Okay I was at workout class tonight. The trainer i'm working with wants to start a new "challenge" to get us motivated. I told her the last challenge was to confusing and I didn't like it so I'm a no go. BUT then she agreed with me. HA HA So she said she might craft one that is a TEAM challenge! Oh my god can you imagine? A team challenge where I don't really know the ladies that well but I would be a part of their demise or success at a challenge. UGH! This would stressful and probab... Fri, 12 Feb 2016 23:01:15 EST A little ditty.... If there is one thing I think about every morning it's "I should workout" Then I think "I should go back to blogging on Spark people" I feel so good when I do! So here's a nice little reminder that when I write I succeed. <BR> <BR> I have a nasty cold right now but yet I've worked out every day by doing as little something! YeA! I have even counted my calories and I'm HIGH! No wonder I look this way. Okay so my goal has changed I am trying to get my calories under 2000 again. I think ... Fri, 15 Jan 2016 10:11:29 EST When panic sets in. Weight gain and weight loss is a constant battle in any of our lives. We lose some then gain some then we panic and then we lose it again then gain a little back and the cycle continues. I have always said I can lose but I'm terrible at maintenance. <BR> <BR> I'm in the have "gained" portion of my cycle and going back to the losing half. But ugh, I hate to admit it even when I'm at my light weight I'm at something's heavy weight. Get what I'm saying? If you don't get it this will clue y... Sat, 1 Aug 2015 12:57:24 EST What.... At least I drank my water. Hidey Ho, <BR> Well it's been a while but it's all good it doesn't mean I'm not checking in. <BR> <BR> I've been honestly logging my food this week. YIKES... Not pretty. No wonder I just cant seem to maintain. Soooooo I'm hovering at just about 2000 calories a day. My goal is to get it under 2000 a day. I know it doesn't sound like it would be hard but it can be. <BR> <BR> When I first started my journey I was at almost 3000 a day. Then I thought no way on this earth I would ever get ... Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:43:05 EST I won the challenge!!! I won first prize in a body challenge! I did it!!! <BR> <BR> Okay I had something to prove here and I did. I had to prove to myself that I could lose weight and get fit on my own and I did. So, here is the nitty gritty so I can remember it years from now... <BR> <BR> I joined a Total Body Challenge with my old trainer. She posted my weight, that got me mad, so I busted my butt to win and prove that I don't ever have to have that weight on a board again. That is when I started working ... Thu, 11 Jun 2015 16:17:20 EST Not a good idea or is it? Okay, I guess I can't keep up with good nutrition so I'm just going to work out enough to maintain where I'm at. After tonight's stuffed burgers who can blame me? I was talking to the family and said I need to start a food blog. LOL ha ha ha Now that is funny if you ask me. I'm a constant dieter that is going to start a food blog with yummy fat food. Nope just can't do it. I think I'll stick to this. <BR> <BR> So today I completed workout 145. Whew, my body is tired! I just need to ... Tue, 19 May 2015 22:10:44 EST Back in the saddle.... Really has it been this many months? Yes it really has but never fear.... I'm still at it. <BR> <BR> <BR> I'm still working out, I rocked my challenge and now I am trying to get my food back under control. I actually logged my food today. Hooray for me! It's about consistency and that is something I have only found in my exercise. <BR> <BR> My guess is I can get the food tapered back again and I'll be good to go. <BR> <BR> Next week I'm supposed to get my results from my 6 week chall... Wed, 13 May 2015 22:33:39 EST Saturday Morning Hustle Alright bring on the weekend. AH finally! <BR> <BR> So here it is Saturday Morning and I've worked out, drank my coffee, went to the tanning bed, cleaned myself up and now relaxing before I go clean something. <BR> What is this??? Motivation? I can't believe it. It feels pretty good but I could totally use a nap in about an hour. LOL <BR> <BR> I totally rocked my work week hustle challenge against my ladies. That was fun! The FB is a great tool so far. Who would have thought? well I s... Sat, 17 Jan 2015 14:57:30 EST FB - Week 2 - 70 miles? Alright so really I'm winding up my week 2 of FB. Whew, never knew I was so into exercise. I really am trying I would think the weight would just be melting off of me but it's not. LOL huh???? <BR> <BR> So I have walked 70+ miles since January 2nd. Super proud of that! <BR> I have taken off 7 lbs. Super proud of that! <BR> I then took off another 5 lbs... Super proud of that, then the next morning that showed up again. Not so proud of that. <BR> <BR> Leading the pack on the leader boar... Fri, 16 Jan 2015 12:50:45 EST FB - week 1 Fitbit is killing me! I am really really trying. Although it is only week 1 so how hard can it be right? Well let me tell you HARD! If I didn't go to the gym and beat myself up there working out I would have a really hard time making my 10,000 a day. <BR> <BR> To update the world on my first week back to life and reality... <BR> <BR> I have worked out for 8 days straight. WHEW, tired... <BR> <BR> I have been counting my calories for a week. I'm warn out because I have been eating les... Sat, 10 Jan 2015 11:03:11 EST FitBit Shame Club Craze Well onto the next craze! <BR> <BR> I ditched WW today and that felt great. What a relief to be honest with you. I just wasn't trying on that program. Dont they know there are calories in that fruit they want you to eat? Duh.... <BR> <BR> So my ladies and I were drinking for oh I don't know 6 hours, yes 6 hours we drank ourselves sober I think. But anyhow we decided we needed some motivation this year to get us back on track. With that came my idea for the FitBit. LOL I looked into... Sun, 4 Jan 2015 11:27:50 EST If you want it go and get it.... So today I am going to set a menu for next week. I have been off work for 14 days and I now have to set myself back up for work. <BR> <BR> I have been so happy and it has been such a nice time off I just don't know how I can face going back but I will. I can do it. There just needs to be a plan. <BR> <BR> The song "Come and Get it" - well I know it has nothing to do with weight loss and being fit but today that is how I interpreted the song. It made for an interesting solid workout. Its... Fri, 2 Jan 2015 10:11:28 EST Doing it for vanity, yes I know that's bad! Depression. this is the feeling I've had since Aug 30 when I broke up with my PT. Yep - Sad, worthless - lost - fat - worthless - fat - lost oh did I already mention those things? Hmm well I suppose you get the drift that I feel lost - fat and worthless these days. Well that needs to come to a stop. <BR> <BR> Not sure how I can get it to stop but it has to. <BR> <BR> about 2 years ago I was at my peek of perfection I could easily say. I looked good I felt good.... I considered myself g... Fri, 2 Jan 2015 01:35:21 EST Doing it for vanity, yes I know that's bad!

Honestly I'm somewhat devastated. I feel as though I have broke up or lost a very very good friend. <BR> <BR> I feel a sense of loss that makes me want to cry. <BR> I feel a sense of fear. <BR> I feel a sense of relief. <BR> <BR> The Loss is that of a friend. I think I was co-dependent on her. I used her as my counselor sometimes more than a trainer. <BR> <BR> The Fear is I'm so af... Sat, 30 Aug 2014 10:04:24 EST Was I that bad? Okay on the quick side.... <BR> A few things on my mind today.... <BR> <BR> Over the weekend I had lots of pictures take of me. I HATED how I looked in everyone of them! I looked chubby and not good. That has motivated me to do something. Something is better than nothing. <BR> <BR> Next... a few weeks back a fella told me I was HOT. LOL I have never in my whole life been told this before. Note even from my husband. So, anyhow he was flirting up a storm to the point I was flustered, m... Wed, 27 Aug 2014 23:19:30 EST Random.... babble..... Re-Grouping Hard work and consistency is easier said than done. <BR> <BR> Right now I am consistently eating bad, not working out, and working overtime at my job. I see nothing good in those 3 scenarios. <BR> <BR> Let's think.... talk....type random thoughts just as they come out. (this may not make sense to anyone but me....) <BR> <BR> What can I do to pull myself out of this year and a half downward spiral???? Let's take the moment of time I need to take for myself and make a list..... <BR> 1. s... Thu, 21 Aug 2014 20:39:42 EST Alkaline Water Not The Cure! <BR> This week has been draining. Emotionally, physically and mentally. I mean whew work wiped me out. Early long days, light workouts. But its done and now I can enjoy the weekend and my family. <BR> <BR> My blood pressure has been high all week. Here's what happened... <BR> I was drinking my Alkaline Kangan Water. (PH 9.5 for those smarty pants that get this stuff). Anyhow I was drinking it faithfully about a full 2 quarts + a day. Drinking my water that is supposed to be super hea... Sat, 19 Apr 2014 11:28:39 EST Easier said that done? Well being on task is so much easier than done! I am doing better however. I am tracking my food even when it's not the healthiest choices. I'm drinking my special Kagan water that my PT wants me to drink. I'm exercising (not yesterday though because I had a massage teee he he) <BR> <BR> The weight, has not dropped at all! I'm actually up from last Thursday. Hey no worries though... Ask me if I'm discouraged? NOPE! I feel healthier and my jeans are fitting better and the sun is out s... Thu, 10 Apr 2014 09:13:38 EST Down time is over Down time is done.... Oh my I hate to say it I just loved having time to myself. I miss my kid-o but darn I loved time to myself! I'm prepping because my kid is going to come home and there is going to be so much love one won't be able handle it! <BR> <BR> I'm working pretty well on keeping on task. I'm going to make a huge effort because I am so stiff from yesterdays workout that I can hardly breathe. Whew! Why goof that kind of physical fitness up with bad food. Tue, 8 Apr 2014 16:30:21 EST Down time Everyday and every weekend I beg and plead for time to myself. <BR> <BR> Well I have it! I am so enjoying not having a schedule. Not answering to anyone,not having any noise around the house, having it quiet and being a lone for a bit is really great. I'm going to focus on drinking some water, doing some laundry and taking care of me for 2 more days. Then my kid-o will be home and life will return to normal. <BR> <BR> My husband is about the sweetest man that has walked the face of the ... Sun, 6 Apr 2014 12:24:01 EST Positive Saturday Right on track.... <BR> Thats where I'm at right this minute! Yeee Haw, <BR> <BR> I chose rest over workout yesterday to too keep the piece with everyone in my house. I took my rest, we went out and I ate a LOT of food not healthy but I ate it and loved every bite. Today I will eat better. <BR> <BR> I am also drinking my magic water the PT gave me. Lets see what this does. My husband is dead set on going someplace now.... ACK Does he not get it that we are exhausted and don't want ... Sat, 29 Mar 2014 14:48:03 EST Buzzed... Let's start by asking a question... <BR> <BR> Have you ever worked out so hard that you don't think you can go one more step but then all of a sudden get a high and it seems like you can breath easier and you just keep going with it? After the extreme fatigue you just smile and think to your "yea Baby! That's what I'm talking about". <BR> <BR> Ah, that hard of a work out is exactly what I've been doing for the past 4 days. Whoa, I'm feeling it today the fatigue has set in but I think I'm... Fri, 28 Mar 2014 10:10:42 EST Called Out.... How embarassing Well, I've survived my huge emotional breakdown yesterday. <BR> <BR> Oh yea, after having an awful day at work I went on to do my workout. It was one of the most meaningful workouts I've had in years. Meaningful not in the ways of exercise but emotionally. It's something when I'm talking & working out then BOOM I breakdown and start crying. All I could think was toughen up... get your self together.... Knock it off! It was brief but it was full blown depressed tears. I got them out and... Tue, 25 Feb 2014 15:28:17 EST Wavering - I'm here aren't I? <BR> As things spiral out of control on a personal level I continue to struggle to lose/keep weight off but damn it I'm here, I've worked out..... Do I really "got this?" ugh.... <BR> <BR> It's Saturday and I'm probably bitter like I normally am on Saturday mornings. LOL This too shall pass...... <BR> <BR> Being bitter and knowing it is part of the real battle right? <BR> <BR> There that's all my positives and silver lining for the day. Sat, 22 Feb 2014 09:39:18 EST Oopsie Oopsie, that's really all I can say. I have to do some back tracking food tracking... I've taken leave from my senses this week. But it's Saturday and I'm all pumped up for the new up coming week. I have my cook books out and my husband back! <BR> <BR> It's funny he has no idea how much I really like having him around even though it's not like he's a mover and a shaker when it comes to home chores but just having him around is so nice. <BR> <BR> So where I failed this week.... <BR> Hig... Sat, 8 Feb 2014 10:36:10 EST Monday Montra..... I must I must I must <BR> <BR> I got this. (I hope) <BR> <BR> Getting ready to log my food for the day but I'm not sure that I've stayed in my calorie count but I am highly positive I am satisfied and happy. <BR> <BR> I am going to talk myself into this if nothing else. <BR> <BR> I'm writing, I'm tracking, writing, trying.... trying trying I got this. <BR> <BR> No OT today, healthy hearty dinner. What more could I really ask for right? <BR> Tomorrow morning my first goal of the day wil... Mon, 27 Jan 2014 21:43:59 EST Pattern... break the pattern Pattern... work... eat... work... eat... grumpy pants... work... work.... grumpy pants.... eat... miserable! <BR> <BR> Okay that was last week. I worked 14.5 hours of overtime which is huge for me since I have a labor intensive job at times. This week is going to go a little something like this... "oh, 8 hrs done and I've taken break and lunch, time to go!" <BR> <BR> Today is Sunday and looking back to last Saturday I had resentment. I had the same resentment this Saturday that I had las... Sun, 26 Jan 2014 15:15:03 EST Seahawk Sunday!!!! Sunday - The first day of the week for me! I have decided if I start my week on Sunday I start and end my week with a day off! Nice huh? <BR> <BR> Right side of the bed, that's where I woke up today. Oh man it feels good too! I woke feeling refreshed and happy. I had 4 hours to myself last night and I'll tell you I felt a little weird about it! I felt a little lost but I recovered just fine. <BR> <BR> I woke up at the 5am alarm and hit the gym. I hit the gym and I hit it hard! Whe... Sun, 19 Jan 2014 10:34:13 EST Built up resentment Saturday - Huh.... I think I'm agitated this morning. I am in no way shape or form in the best mood possible. Let me vent it out so I can move on with a happy pleasant day. <BR> <BR> 1. I woke up at 4 and thought I should head to the gym, ended up going back to sleep and waking up a little later than I should. <BR> <BR> 2. Got a late start at the gym. But did strenght training and 10 min of cardio. I got a text saying "I had to go." That means my work out had to be cut short because o... Sat, 18 Jan 2014 13:27:16 EST Guess what I bought Big sigh of reliefe. The work week is all done! Bring on the weekend! <BR> <BR> Before I give you a typical rant and rave for the day I have BIG news!!! Are you ready? <BR> <BR> I bought a scale. Not a food scale but a person scale! Can you believe I've never had a scale at home through my whole journey? I think it's finally time so I broke down and bought one. I got a really nice one at Costco that was on sale for $14. Well I suppose it's not that nice because it had the right weigh... Sat, 18 Jan 2014 01:01:40 EST
