A little of this and a little of that

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

No specific theme for my entry. Just need an outlet so I am not giving in to my desire to gorge myself on unhealthy foods. Don't know why I am feeling this way, just craving anything and everything sweet and it's been so hot that I would love to feel the burn I get in my throat when I take a drink of high fructose carbonation. Been over three months since I've had a soda and haven't craved it much until now. Good thing I keep it out of the house.

I'm trying to get past a 10 pound mark. My body has such a hard time with them, every 10 pounds. Once I get past it, I lost weight quickly. But once it gets near that mark, the weight doesn't want to come off. It's frustrating. So close to losing 30 pounds and being under 200. But I don't think I'll get there this week. I know that is part of my problem with want to cheat/gorge/pig out/etc. I should start keeping track of the times when this happens. That way I'll know if it's hormonal even though I don't have a "that time of the month" or if it is mental like when I feel it's not working and I'll NEVER get past this 10 pound mark.

It's been a month since I've written but I've wanted to so many times. I just never made the time to do it. So many things that I think about and think that I want to write about it so that I remember them. Little accomplishments that make me feel good. But now that I've sat down, I don't remember them. I need to carry a little notebook with me so I can randomly jot things down.

I do remember how excited I was when my whole upper arm moved when I flexed my muscles. I do remember my son's words and he was squeezing my arm and I suddenly flexed. He was in the middle of a sentence when I did and he was like "HOLY COW". Now he's always trying to squeeze my arm.

I wish I would remember more of what I wanted to write about. Maybe if I did, when I feel like this, it will be easier to snap out of it. Tomorrow starts week 4 of our P90X/Insanity hybrid. Mainly Insanity for the week. Going to do that in the morning and load some concrete in the evening. My attitude will be better tomorrow. I have a plan and I'm sticking to it.

    I am dealing with the same issues. It's great to hear that I am not "crazy"! I am stuck at the same weight. I have lost/gained the same 4 pounds and they aren't budging. I have been really good about my water intake, my exercise and my food. Sometimes, chocolate is the only thing that will make my cravings stop. I do indulge at times and eat an entire candy bar only to beat myself up over it later.

    When I got home from the gym yesterday, I drank a glass (8oz) of chocolate milk. It did the trick! I was so happy that I didn't have the constant cravings and I am not craving chocolate today. I have also given up soda. It's almost been a year for me. I do occasionally drink light lemonade, but it's not carbonated.

    It's great that you are seeing progress in your body. It's great you have a plan too! You can do it!!

    Awesome! One thing I learned on this weeks extreme makeover weight was because our bodies get to used to exercising, we need to change to different ones after every 6th time to keep our body going ahead.

    emoticon I have days like that also.....I often think mine are related to a lack of sleep.
