What's been going on lately

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Hmm well I have been neglecting SP lately. I haven't been on too much or logging my food and fitness. Well since the last time I blogged not a whole lot has happened I guess. I haven't weighed myself because I refuse to rely on the scale anymore it's more discouraging than helpful to me at the moment. I went shopping with my husband last weekend and I picked up 2 pairs of size 20 jeans from Old Navy. I tried them on they fit so so. The back of the jeans were sticking out so I asked my husband to grab me a pair of 18's and in the back of my mind I was like"There not going to fit but sure lets try em". Well I put them on no problem. Granted they have the stretchy material in them too they fit perfect. I can't remember the last time I bought a size 18 jeans. When I put them on at first there a little snug but by mid day there too big and I'm pulling them up. Sorta drives me nuts but its okay. That made my weekend. I have been only going to the gym 2-3 times a week now. And weekends are still my bad days for eating. But I'm now getting to the point where I'm getting pissed at myself because it's ONLY my fault. Not my in laws fault and not my husband's fault, ONLY MINE. I have been choosing better things than I was before but still not perfect. I need to get back to going to the gym at least 3 days of cardio & strength training. My husband and I had an agreement before I started that once I hit 160lbs we'd start trying for a baby no matter what. No matter what else was going on that was our starting date. It was my decision he just agreed to stick to it. He loves me how I am it's my choice to wait until then however I'm getting really inpatient and want that baby now! It seems like everyone and their brothers are pregnant or just had a baby and I just don't want to wait anymore. I've always had that want/need to be a mom. But like my husband agreed to do he's making me stick to my word and wait until I'm 160lbs to start. Originally the agreement was I'd go off birth control at 160lbs and start but we've decided I'd go off that now(it's been 2 months now) and just use other methods of BC. So now since my husband won't budge on the issue because I made him promise LOL (could kick myself right about now) I've lit a fire under my butt to get this weight off a little faster. I don't want to lose weight too drastically obviously but just a little faster than it has been going. Next weekend we're going back to Michigan to visit our families and have an early Thanksgiving dinner for my family since we're coming back home the day before Thanksgiving. And in December I'm flying up Dec.23-25 to spend Christmas Eve with my family. I'm surprising them all no one knows I'm coming except my best friend whose picking me up at the airport. So that's whats been going on with me lately. I'm oober excited to surprise them for Christmas. It would of been my first christmas away and it really bothered me and the plane tickets were cheap so my husband said go ahead and I'm flying home Christmas morning to spend the day with my husband so we're still together for Christmas. Right now I'm just trying to get things back on track and keep my momentum going forward. It's like I start and I'm going good then I fizzle I need to get something or someone to keep me going. To hold me accountable for going to the gym and so on but I guess that's my self. I even bought 3 little onesies to keep me going to motivate me to keep trucking along so someday soon I can fill those onesies with a little one I know it might sound crazy but it's me I can be crazy at times I guess. I know I jump around a lot from different things so I'm sorry I have that tendency

    Woo hoo on buying smaller jeans! I agree that sometimes using other indicators besides the scale is more helpful! I couldn't ever be one of the people I see on here who weigh in every day because it would drive me nuts!

    I used to want to wait until I hit a certain weight before trying to get pregnant, but I always thought that'd happen easily (or easier, anyway) and before I was 30. Yeah, life had different plans for me. But I think that's a good goal.
