Weekly Update 5/25/15

So I would definitely say that this week was a success.

Food- I made mostly good choices with the help of myfitnesspal I started calorie counting again it had been about 10 months since I had used the app and after seeing it pop up in various posts I thought I should start using it again. It's only been a few days but it seems to be going well.

Exercise- I did extremely well this week and was able to log 10.5 miles on runkeeper! That is definitely a personal best and I am…

Getting back into the swing of things

I'm at a point where I'm going to start to find a new normal. I had my last day of work on the 20th and will continue to stay home until the baby is born and then become a stay at home mom after that. I'm very much looking forward to the opportunity, but know it will come with it's own set of struggles! 



Today I have been pretty healthy! I had some plain greek yogurt with strawberries/blueberries, then a spinach salad with 2 eggs, carrots, and dressing for lunch. I added a peanut…

On Vacation

I haven't been writing blog posts or commenting because I've been on vacation, woohoo!!  Our kids were coming in from out of town so my husband and I rented a 5 br / 4 bath house near Disney World.  It has a pool and jacuzzi so we have been spending a lot of time, enjoying the screened-in area out back!

Amazingly, I have stayed on plan for my food, totally within my carb limits!  It helps to have my son here with me and he is doing low-carb too, so I have been treating him to…

I've missed this!! A year later and I'm back...and expecting! :)

I came to Blog to Lose a long time ago. And before that I was a part of Weight Circles, which, from what I remember is what shifted over to this site in the first place! 



Anyway! It took me so many Google searches to remember the name of this site, and I am so happy to be back. It says I only have 7 old blog posts, but that's because I got married and changed my name/profile in 2013, so the hundreds of others I had under my maiden name aren't represented. 



I stopped using…

Last Week's Reflection

Body Image: Pretty good! Don't remember many "beating myself up" moments. When I lift weights I really start to feel better just because.

Fitness: Worked out 4/7 days + one SERIOUS gardening day. Like, seriously sweating, abs aching hard work hacking at grass sections to make a garden. Also, I started using a heart rate monitor when I workout. I love it…

Weekly Update 5/24

Weight - Up 0.6 pounds. Down 9.6 pounds since Day 1



Body Image - Getting a bit negative since the weight loss has been zilch for the past month. I really did want to be farther along in my weight loss.



Exercise - I completed my 1st 5k. I ran the entire way, which was my goal. I plan to keep training for my next 5k and bike ride.



Food - This really needs to be my focus. I make good choices but I know I have been eating too much & snacking or indulging far too… Continue

I did it!

Today was my first 5k. It was a small race, which I think helped me not be so nervous. It was also called a fun run. It was a 5k walk or run & a half marathon. I am so incredibly happy with myself. I ran the entire race. My time was 33:12. I now understand how every runner here gets addicted. I already want to do another one! It really helped give me the boost to try harder with my diet. I want to lose weight.

Why Do I Want This? <--and what is THIS?

Guys. I had a light bulb moment last weekend. I haven't really defined why I'm after this or what the hell "this" even is. Worse yet, when I started to I was really sad by the first thing I wrote down...

  • I want to look like a million bucks the next time I see my old co-workers and mentors (B., Br., Chr.) or any even remote acquaintances I might run into from my old job. 

Ok. What?!? Really? That was the FIRST thing you…

Movement

Exercise has always been the easier part of the healthy lifestyle for me to get motivated by. Although I still have alot of slippage from my goals, I enjoy exercise and reset much more quickly than when I slip from my food goals. 

Last weekend, I participated in my 5th Bay to Breakers race in a row. The B2B is a 12k race, which is 7.6 miles and includes a classic San Francisco hill- the gravity defying kind! Here I am at the start of the race with my mom- this is her third…

NSV

Since I have been so disappointed in the scale readings lately I decided to take some measurements to see if there has been any change. The last time I did that was 3 months ago. Well my thighs are 1/2 inch smaller than they were. Even though I have not lost weight in the last 3 weeks, I did have a loss. Tomorrow is my weigh in day. I have had some bad food moments, but I am going to get on it anyway. My first 5k is tomorrow too & I am so nervous but I will finish it even if I am walking it… Continue

Has it really been two weeks?!

Well since my goal is to post once per week, I guess I only missed one. But two weeks feels like a long time! 

Lots to report. My motivation is coming back, but I did have a few setbacks. Fortunately, they were time/illness setbacks rather than "I just don't feel like it" setbacks. 

I'm excited about this new app (new to me) for tracking what I eat. I found calorie tracking to be helpful to me my first time around with weight loss; it made me SO aware of what I…

Its a pretty large salad with a chicken breast that has been coated in your favorite sauce.  I got the Asian Zing nomnom!!! It was so great I…

Brutally Honest

I took a brutally honest look back at my food tracker over the past couple of weeks. Admittedly, my view of "good" choices is a little bit skewed because I have been pregnant and/or maintaining my weight for almost 2 years now. There was plenty of wiggle room for indulgences under those circumstances. I found myself saying "yes" or "why not" to a lot of the things I used to say "no" to. I found myself ordering burger and fries when we picked up instead of the regular grilled chicken and…

Surprise.

I knew it was coming.  I have been down this road enough times to know the twists and turns.  It totally should not be a surprise to me.  It shouldn't frustrate me so much!  But it does.

I'm stalled.  

For the first 15 days, I didn't weigh myself, and so the big payoff was a 7-lb loss, that was a nice chunk to find out about.  Then ever since, I've been weighing in almost every day - and almost every day I saw progress.  Love that!  Then the last time I saw a loss on the scales…

Weekly Review

Okay so the scale went down this week(1.6lbs). Which is great. However with losing 16 lbs I feel like I should be seeing some sort of results and I'm not. If anything I feel like I look bigger than before. I'm just so frustrated with this.
