Been a minute

Friday, May 15, 2009

When I taken this picture I was inching to the 300 pound mark. And then I made it to 300...wasn't happy about it, but I didn't do anything either under too much stress. So 4 months went by and I am almost 320. I said this has to stop. So I decided to take a step into losing weight. Being the only one in my house to do this is hard because nobody wants to accomodate for you. So I have to do it myself. So as I am learning to eat right, trying to chose the right foods when we are out and about which is extremely hard and being asked by the kids 15,000 times why are you getting that when they know I am trying to lose weight. Sometimes I give into temptation. Last week was the perfect example, I ate crappy food all week. Anywhere from Steak-N-Shake, to Diary Queen....blizzards ya'll. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Blizzard and Reese Blizzards. So before that I lost 5 pounds and I was down a total of 8.6 pounds and this past week I gained 4 pounds back. Which was shocked it was that less because I didn't eat anything healthy all week. So now, I have to fight even more. Because last week I didn't workout. So now I have to fighter hard not just the eating but the working out too. The new week started Wednesday, I went to workout last night. I did a low light cardio....bike for 15 minutes, I did random hills at an incline of 8 burning 100 calories, I was trying the elliptical but I only survived for 2 minutes, so I got on the treadmill, and decided to myself that I am going to jog.....I jogged for 7 minutes at 2.5 or 2.6 mph and I was excited that I was able to do that. Because I am still in the 300's and my knees are horrible and I could of blown out my knees but I did it that slow for the simple fact that I was thinking about my knees. Now do I want to jog again, yes I do. I am going to do it tonight. I'm excited because I ordered the Cardio Blast DVD because I need variety. So on top of the cardio that I am going to be doing, I am going to be doing those workouts as well. My goal is to get out of the 300 pound range by the end of May, which means....I need to buckle down on my eating and working out more than 30 minutes. I am not going to log the extra into sparkpeople because I am not ready to add more calories into my diet yet until I go grocery shopping.

    Hey Lady, we've all been there, I've been there, but guess what? You are already ahead of the game! You have realized you have got to stop tripping and get a hold of yourself and go in the right direction. I know how it is with being the only one in your family that is being the healthy one. I told my gf and boys what i was doing and things were going to be different as far as cooking and eating out, I asked them to respect me and to try new things and if they didn't like what i cooked then they could eat cereal! LOL! well boys being boys, they want more than cereal so they gave in to what (mom) wants to eat and they have found out that cooking in the kitchen can be fun, they help prepare the meals and try out new spices. now, this didn't happen over night but with them knowing that I wasn't going to give up and when they seen I had more energy to do more with them outside, they came around. You hang in there, sweetie! It's all going to come together! Make a plan, write it down, that way you can hold urself accountable. emoticon emoticon

    Blizzards are one of the many reasons I am glad I am vegan. lol I can't eat them unless I make them myself, and if I am going to spend time in the kitchen, I figure it should be spent making healthy food, so it works out safely. hehe

    It's awesome that you can jog! I have never been able to do it, even as a kid, so to me it is quite an accomplishment!
