I did it! I lost almost a whole pound this week. .8 to be exact. I am very proud of myself. Can't wait to see how next week goes but I'm going day by day. Speaking of day by day.....today was trick or treat here and I did eat a few to many. I also didn't drink enough water and I didn't work out other then all the walking during trick or treat hours and up and down the stairs for the first hour of trick or treat while giving candy out.
No worried tho tomorrow I will be back on track. I'm in it to win it. I want to get myself back. I'm on my way that is for sure!! I have a much better attitude now. I can't explain it. I just love it really do!!
I have been doing much better with my tracking and my water was at the highest intake yesterday. I'm in it to win my life back. I want to feel pretty again. I want to live life. So far today is a WIN!!
I just read Do you wanna blog from REDMANCHRONIC and I want to Thank him for writing it. YES I wanna!! I wanna get back to my happy self. I wanna workout. I wanna love me again.
I restarted my journaling and tracking of my water, workouts and food on 10/9 and today is Day 15 of doing all. I have to be honest it is harder then I realized it would be. Outta the 15 days I have completely tracked 6 days and halfed a couple and skipped a few completely. Today is day 3 in a row I am proud to say I have tracked. Not great on the water haven't hit 8 yet but working on it still. I have tracked my food. Not in range but working on it too. 2 nice walks in 2 days as well.
I can do this and I will because I WANNA!!!
One day at a time, one meal at a time! Everyday is a new day to make it better then yesterday!!
It is so hard for me to track my food. I don't know why. I did great one week and last week nothing. Last week was a wirl wind too. Every day is a new day to make it better so today I updated this week and tracked today and updated my journal for next week. Everything is ready for me to fill in now. Hoping this will make it easier. I also have my water ready too. One backup ready to chill and the other is almost done. When I drink that I'll refill it with my grape water to chill and drink my orange water. I will do this.
Since I didn't put into my weight loss this week I didn't lose anything in fact I gained a pound. I get what I put into it. So what needs to change? ME!!
Today I have started tracking again. I made my water jug to drink for the day. Made my 8 squares to color for each glass I drink. Updated my journal for the day. Already got a smiley face sticker today. Did 2 small popsugar videos this morning. Had a nice little lunch and now getting ready for the day. When I get my 10,000 steps today I get a star sticker. I didn't get a sticker the last 2 days for steps or my water all colored in. I will though never giving up. Today will be better then yesterday. Already is and by the end of the day it will have rocked!! I got this!!
I am so tired of the up and down to my scale. I lose then I gain to lose it all over again. So tired of it that I bought myself a new journal to track my weight loss, food (bigy), water, exercise and steps.
My journal is really a weekly planner and instead of writing in the weekly part what I have to do each day of the week I track my water by coloring in a square I drew for each 8 oz I drink, track my B, L, S and D then plug it in here. All even my chips and mini cherry pies (I know don't judge). At the end of the day I track my steps for the day. My goal is to hit 10,000 each day. If I do then I get a star sticker near it. Track my workout with a box to check off or color (hasn't happened yet) with a min section next to it too. I also get a smiley face sticker when I work out. I want to get a special one when I do it all but I don't have it yet. I am ordering scale stickers I will look for the special great job sticker too.
Yesterday was my first day and I am proud of myself. I drank 5 glasses of water and tracked my food all day and was at 1338 for the day. Didn't workout and my steps were below average but today is a new day and I'm starting again today.
I can do this and I will!! No more excuses. You gain because you didn't put into it. You get what you put into it so do it. OWN YOUR JOURNEY!!
So I have been planning our meals for a couple weeks now. The grocery bill is much better when I do this. I write the finished menu on the chalk board for everyone to see and then when I cook that dinner then I take it off. I need to get this weeks menu done soon so I can execute. It has helped me stay on track with eating for sure. Not more junk then I need for the lunches for the week so I won't eat most of them. Also I have been drinking more water. When I walk into the kitchen (ALOT I have noticed too) I grabbed my water jug instead of food. Now I just need to get to tracking my foods and water to see really how well or bad I'm doing.
I will get this. This journey is for sure hard and I'm making it harder. Need to stop doing that. I need to keep making myself feel better about myself and my choices and I notice I like myself more when I am exercising and eating better. Why do I sabotage it? Here's to a new week. I can do this!!
Had a wonderful time on vacation visiting family this month. Then got home and had a 1st birthday party for my granddaughter. So it has been busy busy since we got home from vacation. I am happy to say I only gained 2# while on vacation and lost .4# this week. I didn't do much but clean. I didn't get any workouts but one small walk. Lots of laundry though (up two flights of stairs and down all day). Let's see what all I can accomplish today and this week.
Things to get done this week: Drink more water Move more - workout atleast 5 days a week and take a walk every day.
So I haven't been online for a while. I'm not gone just went on vacation. I don't post from my phone. It is easier on the computer plus I was on vacation and yesterday we my little grandaby's 1st birthday!! She had a good time I think anyway she didn't cry so that was a good thing.
While on vacation I only worked out 1 day. I didn't get my 10,000 steps but on one day. I had a wonderful time with my brother and family I hadn't seen for a year and my niece and nephew I hadn't seen for even longer. I ate what I wanted but tried to keep it down to one plate but I did drink some wine that week. LOL Again on vacation and was having a great time. I only gained 2# so said the scale but I don't know. My scale doesn't like me. It could've been worse so I will take the 2# and start again.
School starts Tuesday 8/21. When hubby gets a few pays from day shift I am going to join planet fitness and go after I drop him off at school so I can be home by 1030am to watch Melony.It is only $10/month and I can cancel anytime I am told.
Going to see about getting a workout in and then shower. Don't judge me I am being lazy. Grandbaby is now down for a nap so it is sweat time then shower. I don't like to shower then get a workout.
Got in a walk already and 2 Jessica Smith workouts today. Dinner will be fish but that is about all I figured out as of yet. It is the TOM now and all I want is junk food. I have tried so hard but I did cave ate 5 small chocolate chip cookies a pinch of potato chips and a couple handfuls of pitted cherries. I feel like I sabatoge my hard work every day. I feel so much better about myself now that I'm working out regularly. In fact I feel a bit pretty again. I normally just feel old and unatractive. But now that I've gotten 2 weeks of working out in and better food choices I am starting to feel pretty. I even went and bought a dress for me. I don't normally buy anything for me. Heck my clothes I am wearing now are ages old. My shirts are from Girl Scouts and I haven't been a leader now for 6 yrs and my shorts I wear well some are my SD old ones from when she was in school (she is 22) and I can't even remember when I bought the jean shorts I wear. I am pathetic. Well I am done being blah. I want to feel pretty again and I am working towards that now.
I was hoping for more of a weight loss this week. I shouldn't be upset but I am. Getting back at it though. Not giving in or up. I got in a 15 min and a 25 min Jessica Smith workout in today. Working the church festival today and tomorrow so I will be eating dinner there both days. Going to try to keep my food low for now so I can eat a bit there and won't hurt to much. Drinking water today too. Already tracked my food so far now getting my water jug ready for the rest of the day.
I was so hoping for a weight loss this week. Instead I gained 2#. I worked out every day atleast 20 min a day, walked atleast 3 nights, and drank more water each day. So it looks like I need to track my food now too. I just don't know how to log my dinners. Guess I'll see how it goes today. One day at a time.
I did a Cathe Freiedrich step workout today and I LOVED it. I can't believe I ever stopped. I forgot how much I loved working out to these dvd's. I plan to do session 2 tomorrow since I only did session 1 today. Small is better then nothing and it was kicking my butt. So tomorrow is session 2 and then Friday going to try both. I also made a juicy juice bottle into my water bottle. I will be getting another soon but for now 1 bottle a day. So where I go it will go too. I don't care for plain water unless it is ice cold or usually after mowing the yard so I added a cranberry lemonade singles to go flavor to the 64 oz of spring water.
Now that my kiddos are well I am getting back into the swing of working out again. I am tired of losing same darn pounds that I gain at the TOM week. I just let myself eat whatever it is I want that week. I need to bring it in and continue the same eating habits as the rest of the month. This month I am up and down with my workouts. I find them boring or to hard. Is there such a thing as to hard? Challenging yes hard not really if I think about it. I did alittle look see at a challenge I do and I went back to 2015 and I have been the same weight so I guess that is a good thing but I am DEFINATLY doing something wrong if I'm the same weight and I have been trying (must NOT have been trying as much as I thought). So I am here today again never to give up a little dissapointed in myself but when I look at the whole it is always my choices that will change or not change.
Today I am in it to change. Change the way I see myself. Even though I'm 150# or close I still see myself as scquishy. My 6yr old son likes that squishy but I do not. I am going to get back on track like before I even knew I was going to have my son.
Goals - to drink my water (need to get the bottles I found I liked), post my workouts, and track my food whether it is here on SP or in my journal book where I put my water intake, steps for the day and a smiley face sticker on each day I workout. I am going to put a smiley face sticker for every workout that I do each day now. Enough of this sabotage. Never giving up always moving forward. Every small victory is a step in the right direction.
Thank you HEALTHYHEARTZ. My kiddos are doing much better. She ended up with Roseola and then my 6 yr old son had the fever for a few days after hers broke but no rash that I had seen. Today they are both doing great. Have a great day!

This week has been pretty bad. My granddaughter had a high fever again so we brought her to the Dr office to check if she had another UTI and luckily it was not but was told it could be Roseola and that it would be a few days and she will have a rash and feel better. Last night we brought her to the statcare to have them re-check her ears and then also check her throat. She is slobbering way to much for where she is at in the sickness. They found she had thrush and sent a subscription to the pharmacy for her. Today she is going wonderful compared to the last few days. Now my son has a fever as well. I figure he cought the Roseola since he has been sick a lot this year. We will see. He went to bed late last night so is still sleeping. He should be rolling around soon though. Fingers crossed his fever is gone now too. I didn't get anything but cleaning, walking the floors with the little one and one walk outside this week for me. I don't know how I went down this week but I did and I'll take it. Time to get back on track and get moving again. I miss working out now go figure LOL
Need to grab a snack workout shower and see what I can do for me today.
I got a nice (NOT SO MUCH) of myself before getting in the shower the other day. Needless to say it wasn't what I wanted to see. I'm slowly getting myself back at it. My shoulder has been bothering me now since the Thursday before Memorial Day but yesterday was so bad I took ibuprofen before bed and I slept so much better. I took some this morning and need to wait now til about 3 for more. I am starting to feel my elbow throb again like it did yesterday. Taking it easy on the upper body today. I'm not going to stop but I will have to modify a bit on my left side. Water is a bit of an issue yet but I have a system up today to see how much I get. Here's to a better day!! Keep moving forward never stopping.
So as life happens I take it one day at a time. I will get to my goal weight again I know it. I just need to get myself back on track. I now am a home mommy and loving it. But with being a home mommy it is SO easy to go to the kitchen and eat anything anytime. It isn't like when I worked out of the house for 8 hrs and had my food with me. I can do this. I have bought new water jugs so I can drink more water. I have the Tupperware now for the snacks to be divvied up and workout plan. I have been cleaning upstairs almost all day yesterday. I got my son's bedroom done, bathroom done, son's toy room, the foyer upstairs and most of my bedroom. Today I will finish upstairs and tidy the main floor again. And then I feel the house is almost where I want it. I still want to reorganize the under the cupboards. But so far so good. I'm on my way to a better me with a better life. Enjoying my time with my granddaughter and my son this summer.
So I'm not exactly where I want to be today I am where I am. My little man decided to give his sickness to me. He's feeling better each day I get worse. LOL It's ok though he was miserable. I am glad he's feeling better. As for me.....I feel awful. I am not really eating and what I do eat isn't great for me. I am afraid to check the scale to see if I'm still on track. I'm hoping to maintain this week and pick it back up next week. I feel like someone is sitting on me now so I really don't want to push myself to far to fast. But at the same time I am ready to get moving now. Happens this way often.
It is now March 2018. I haven't really done much to lose weight the past couple of months until recently. I joined the Official 'Eat Up, Slim Down' Challenge group this week and am trying to get back on track. I even went and bought a new weekly planner to journal my food and workouts and my every day life and keep it all together in one book. I have tracked 3 of the 4 days so far. I found my old book and took my weight loss tracker and taped it in the new one. After getting it together I realized I lost 9# since I started that journal. It isn't much but it is 9# I don't have to lose now. I'll take it. Today I didn't do much of anything. My hubby is on midnights this week yet so I took my kids and we went out for a bit. Dropped one off at work and took 2 to my friends to hang out for a few hours. Sat most of the time while we were there too. Tomorrow will be better. I have been so busy most days that on my day off I usually just clean up the house. ALL DAY LONG!! So today I just didn't feel like it so I didn't.
I have my lunch ready for tomorrow. I am going to get up alittle earlier to make some cream of wheat for breakfast and grab workout clothes. I am going to try a workout at work while on my lunch break since it is suppose to be cold all week again. As long as no one is there I will be able to work out. I don't like to workout when ppl watch unless I go to the gym which I don't have membership to. So I just use the Dr. PT room and his equipment. Office Mgr took the wifi though so now I have to use my data. We will see how it goes.
Time to get the monster boy to bed. I let him up an extra 30 min while I typed my journal here.
So it is now 2018. My banana had her baby and they are living with us now. I have been slowly getting my ducks back in order. Our household has been invaded by the flu and fevers so far the past month and half. I am finally starting to feel better. I wish I wasn't so stuffy now though. I'll take it over blowing my nose every 15 seconds though.
So January is about 1/2 over now. I have finally updated my SP page and I cleaned out my emails. I have some goals to work on too. Tomorrow is my day off so I am going to get some breakfasts ready for the week so I can grab and go. I don't get up in time to eat and I am the first person in at work. So while I start up the office I can put the breakfast in the microwave and eat it before everyone shows up. I also need to get a lunch casserole or something ready for the week because I don't pack my lunch the night before and it will save so much time when I am running late every morning LOL. I don't sleep well so I don't get up earlier then I already do. Going to try melatonin Tuesday since Wednesday is my next day off. I don't know how it will effect me so I want to make sure I am off the next day when I try it. I have been drinking 5 glasses of water at work lately but then I don't drink the remaining when I get home. hmmmm
Here's to a great week. I will see what I can get done tomorrow to help me stay on track for a great week.
So I have been on this journey for some time. I really finally got into it when I found myself pregnant with my now 5 yr old. I have been up and down now since having him and seems like forever that I'm bouncing from 155-153 lbs all the time.
I keep saying the same thing over and over. Tomorrow I will start. Then I don't follow through. Tomorrow I will work out and then find myself sitting on the sofa. Tomorrow I will journal and keep track and again not do it. Tomorrow I will wake up early and sleep in past time when I need to get ready for work instead. I am tired of all these tomorrow comments.
My small step to get back on track is that I have been walking at my lunch break every day but today I had to go home to get things straightened financially. I need to add a walk on my days off (Wednesday and Sunday and after work on Saturdays). I had started to track my food, water, steps but quickly stopped.
My banana will be having a baby soon and I am trying to get things ready for her and the baby and I find myself pushing things off that I want for me. The baby shower is now over and I need to get back to me. I felt better about myself and my life when I worked out. Why do I continue to push it off? Seems like I am inevitably sabotaging myself. This journal is my new start to the healthier me.
