well I am back again hopefully for good this time, I ended up taking a day off from the elliptical then another and another and so on... now it has been a good 2 months since I have worked out regular and I am still trying to get my rear in gear. I am just sooo tired!!! I have just recently took on a new position at work and it is kickin me in the rear... I wake up tired, go work tired and I go to bed tired and start all over again the next day and when I am tired I just can't get motivated to workout... and I KNOW if I just do a lil bit I would or might feel soo much better oh well out of here
Well I am still here fighting the fight a slow one at that! I am now down 5 lbs. woo hoo!
I know it is going to take awhile to lose this weight but for some reason I just thought the first 10-15 lbs would just about fall off!!!! The reason I say this is... I remember going to a weight watchers meeting a few years ago and it seemed like the weight just fell off all those women...as for me, it didn't fall off back then either, in fact it was a slower process I was only losing ounces.
I did start low carb yesterday and today I am having major anger issues, this may also be hormonal or the fact that I am TIRED who knows but I will see how this goes for awhile and when I have lost 20 lbs I may return to this way of eating again I just want to see how things go for me. One plus is I am eating WAY more veggies as in salads =) somehow I couldn't get the veggies in it was more fruit.
I just don't understand what is going on. I am eating right working out at least 30 mins a day more like an hour a day, and I am getting puffy, jiggly and my BELLY that I want to lose is getting BIGGER! And this week I gained 2 lbs back....I am thinking I might do low carb, just until I reach a lower weight and slowly introduce fruit and veggies back I don't know if anyone reads this but I will post in my groups to if you have any advice please comment
Today is a good day! off early from work woo hoo! this morning I had to drag myself out of bed and ended up only doing 16 min 127 calories food calories are still going well. I will be back in a few to log the mins and calories this afternoon.
Well no sleep again lastnight don't know what is going on but I am thinking it is workout related so I am going to try to cutting out the night workout and start in the AM I was going to do that today, but no sleep, no energy, no mood. Hopefully this will work cuz I am just a lil tired of being tired
Wow it has been a couple of hours and went back to see what the scale said because I just couldn't believe I was up 2 oz! and It said I was up another 1 lb and another 2 oz so either I had the wrong weight when I started this journey to a new me or my monthly hormones are in play here....I don't have a monthly anymore due to surgery so I don't know.. just going to keep on going and see what happens next week.
Well have been doing this new way of life now for a week. I have kept with in my calories an have worked out every day, today is weigh in day and I am up 2 oz! Hmmm rest of my b day cake is in the kitchen... Ha not even going to go in there for a lil bit. I need to re think this right now, it's not much BUT it's not down either. I need to up my water, totally cut out the fast food need to be prepared EVERYDAY or make a better choice like salad. Maybe workout a bit harder...That is all I can see since I have logged in everything I ate even the bad. I have also noticed that I normally don't eat this many calories, some days I had to MAKE myself eat more just to make it to the lower end.
Well took a day off from the machine yesterday back at it today
30 mins 312 calories 15 mins level1 slow 3.3 - 3.5 mph then 15 mins level 7 4.5-5 mph. feeling pretty good since I am just starting out it doesn't keep we awake at night as of yet good thing but I do have some work out anger when I workout 45 mins or longer.
