SAMMY_P9008's SparkPeople Blog SAMMY_P9008's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Game On So I have been doing pretty good. I know it hasn't bee that long but we all have to start somewhere and for me its not about starting its about not stopping. So far I haven't. I have been keeping a journal of what I eat throughout the day so that I can track it on here which sometimes I do the next day, but at least it is getting done. I am also keeping up with my exercises and have been doing more than what I originally thought I would do each work out. I get started with "Okay, I am going t... Fri, 25 Jan 2013 15:35:33 EST **Smack** Should of had a V-8 So I have been keeping up with what I have been eating and posting it on here for the past three days and it really is a wake up call. I cannot believe that for everyday I have tracked my food on here I have went over my calories, carbs, and fat by double of what my highest daily goal should be. I really couldn't believe what I was seeing when I was done with everything. It was sad to see and it made me realize that I really do need to make some changes in my life in order to lose weight. The... Wed, 16 Jan 2013 15:12:32 EST Back In The Saddle So here I am almost 23 years old and 100 pounds overweight with a one and a half year old son. I feel like I have wasted so much time being fat when I could of lost the weight and be in great shape, like I should be. There are people who are much older than me who are in way better shape, which is kind of sad for me to think about. I know this happens to a lot of people but I still feel like I shouldn't be like this. It's kind of pathetic to think about myself being like this. I want to make ... Mon, 14 Jan 2013 16:41:05 EST Busy Little Bee So, as I said in my previous blog entry, I recently started school about three weeks ago and have been super busy. About that same time, I also began recieving more hours at work and with my little one, I have very little time for exercise, which is really starting to bother me. I fit into a pair of jeans that I could not even try to button just a month ago, but I still see the fat that is in those jeans and I regret not being able to exercise to try and lose it. I am a little less than two m... Sat, 5 Nov 2011 20:31:14 EST And Again... It's been a few days since I have worked out and I started again last night.I have been super busy because I started school a few days ago and was still trying to get the schedule down, and became to busy to exercise and keep up with my nutrition. Now, I am ready to start it up again and anxious to see the results I get with the new exercise I am trying out. <BR> <BR> Good luck! Thu, 27 Oct 2011 17:16:03 EST Back in the Saddle So for the past week or so I had to make an emergency move to another apartment, which means I was more worried about moving and getting our new apartment together than keeping up with the exercise. But, I found my sports bra and am ready to kickbox! I have been feeling a little down because it doesn't seem like I'm making any progress but I hope that doesn't stop me from doing what I want to do with my body and life. <BR> <BR> Keep it up everyone!!! Thu, 22 Sep 2011 20:18:02 EST Oh No! :( So I haven't worked out in the last few days which is really making me anxious. It is also kind of getting me down but I have been a little busy and tired. Today I am gettng back on track for sure and hopefully at least get a few pounds off for Sunday, which is my weekly weigh in. Fri, 2 Sep 2011 09:25:17 EST Back in Black So I haven't been on here in a while and with good reason. I just recently had a baby boy that I am so proud of. What I am not proud of is the weight that I gained while being pregnant and thereafter. I am back on sparkpeople to hopefully lose that weight that I gained and a lot extra and get down to a reasonable non-obese weight. I am going to work as hard as I can and hopefully not give in to all of the food that is set in front of me at work so that I can get slim for summer and be an even... Sun, 28 Aug 2011 17:33:34 EST la di da So, I keep talking about getting back on the wagon and whatnot and I still havent really done it yet, although I did lose another 13 pounds which I am extremely excited about. I thought about just trying to exercise everyday and track that and not really worry to much about the food since it is quite inconvenient to do. But I am going to try and watch what I eat and all that. So, I am going to try and start working out tomorrow, and I have really cut down on coke which is a big plus. I am qui... Thu, 16 Sep 2010 13:46:53 EST Off of Pause So, I am finally back on and trying to lose weight again. I followed the tips and motivations a few friends left from weeks ago and feel I am losing weight, even though feeling and actually doing it are two different things. My boyfriend and I have finally moved into our own apartment with internet, which means I am able to track my food and exercise, and I am actually able to work out again. I am working on my finals right now which is really stressing me out because I have t... Sun, 15 Aug 2010 12:10:23 EST *Sigh* So I have been unable to both track my nutrition or workout. Some things happened in my personal life that caused me to change locations again. I got a job at Subway, which is good because I get free 6 in subs while I am working and I work everyday so I eat a little healthy everyday, but doing that and going to school takes up my whole day. When I wake up I get ready for work and go to the library to work on some homework. Then I go to work and don't get off until 11 pm or later, which leaves... Wed, 30 Jun 2010 14:32:14 EST "Vacation" So, it has been a little while since I have been on here to write a blog. My boyfriend and I have come 7 hours to visit his family and friends, and it has been hard on my diet. Its not that I am eating more, but the things I am eating I know aren't very good for me, and I have not been able to enter them into my nutrition tracker. Also, I usually workout with the SparkPeople videos that are available on the website and since we are staying at his mothers house which does not have internet, it... Thu, 10 Jun 2010 15:03:55 EST Confusion in South Texas So yesterday was my weekly weigh in which the scale said I lost another 3 pounds which brings my total for these two weeks to 7 pounds!!!!! I am so excited and I can really see the changes that are happening to my body, and so can everyone else. I am really glad that I found this program site and signed on to do it, and that I am actually doing it. <BR> I am wondering though. Well, I am the type of person that has to do it in small portions because if I have a goal to complete that is going ... Thu, 3 Jun 2010 21:56:36 EST Problemo So today I got a message after tracking my fitness saying that I was burning to many calories for how many I eat, which is a good thing because I am burning all of those calories, but eating all day and eating enough calories to not feel sick when I do exercise. I am doing the 30 minutes a day that I am supposed to be doing but that 30 minutes is burning about twice as many calories a day that I am supposed to be, just by doing 3 10 minutes spark people videos throughout the day. I really fee... Fri, 28 May 2010 01:44:34 EST My First Time Today was the end of my first week all together so of course I did my weigh in. I love 4, that's right, FOUR pounds over the first week I have been doing this program!!! I was soooo excited to see that. Well not at first because I thought I had only lost one because I was thinking that I had started at 231. I later realized that when I went to the doctor last Monday which was 2 days before I started SP, the nurse had told me that I weighed 234. I was so excited when I realized that I really d... Wed, 26 May 2010 23:10:36 EST Undereating!!! So today was awesome! <BR> I was actually under my calorie count, and then I had a snack with my boyfriend to get in the zone, plus I was a little hungry. <BR> So yesterday, I went a little over my limit, but only by a little, which I did after I wrote my blog. And, also after I wrote my blog, I realized that I did exercise. <BR> Hello!!! Dancing!! <BR> And I sure did a lot of it, and burned a lot of calories on the way. I was really excited to realize that I had actually done some exercis... Mon, 24 May 2010 02:05:17 EST Wonderful Wedding Day Hey everyone. <BR> <BR> So I am very proud of myself today. Today was my aunts wedding and I am Mexican, which means food food food, and sweets. Not to mention chocolate cake. Well guess what. I am still in my calorie range!!!! I am so excited that I was able to control myself and not over do it on the cake, or go back for more mashed potatos like I wanted to. Plus, I am still drinking all of my water for the day, and instead of getting a coke at the wedding bar, I got water. I am so proud.... Sun, 23 May 2010 01:15:16 EST Today's Color is Purple So here I am, day 3, and guess what everybody...I STAYED IN MY NUTRITION RANGES!!!!! I feel so good about that. I didn't think that I would accomplish that for a little while more but here I am, within my range, and patting myself on the back for it. And I only ate three meals today. I drank all of my water, and tried some new work out videos that were on the website, which did by the way get me sweating. I was so amazed that just 10 minutes of doing a work out video got me sweating, not to m... Fri, 21 May 2010 23:07:11 EST Being Lazy Makes Me Crazy So, this is my first time writing a blog on here and I am feeling pretty good about it. <BR> <BR> Ok so I just started yesterday night but I did post all of the stuff that I had eaten yesterday and it was, of course, way past what my calorie count should be. Today was the same. It is kind of discouraging and a let down when I try to eat a little bit smaller portions and see that it is just not doing the trick. I know that it also matters what I eat but sometimes I just can't control that, s... Thu, 20 May 2010 23:39:15 EST
