Am I Crazy?

So there is a 5K in a nearby town on June 10th. I have decided to start training myself for it. I haven't ran since I was in high school.

Yesterday was the first day of training and afterwards I didn't feel to bad other than the fact that my lungs were on fire! Today I don't hurt as much as I thought I would but my hips are definitely feeling it.

I have heard that you need at least 8 weeks to train for a 5K when your just starting out. I have 6... Am I crazy to…

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!

You guys, I did it! 13.5 months after my daughter was born I am FINALLY officially back at my lowest adult weight. That makes me down a total of 68 pounds from my highest weight--41 of which I put back on during pregnancy and have now taken off again. In fact I have made it to goal 3 separate times with Weight Watchers--65 pounds before I met my husband, 68 pounds after my first baby, and 41 after my 2nd. That's a lot of pounds. I hope to never have to lose that amount again. Now comes the…

Feeling desperate!

I cannot seem to get back in the groove. The last thing I was excited about was using the app Lark to keep me mindful of my eating habits; that didn't last. I haven't weighed myself in awhile because I am afraid. My exercise has gone way down, and my eating, I'm not even paying attention. I've started eating sugar daily. It's like all my old habits found me and are settling in for the long haul. 

I don't know how I'm going to get back on track, but, at least I want to check in…

Exercise - One outdoor run, the other 3 on the treadmill. One upper body resistance workout.

Back in the Swing

I am please to say that after a fairly emotional and hectic week last week, that I have pulled myself together and I'm back in a good routine.  Between loosing my sweet dog and also being involved in an audit from the state at work - I was emotionally spent.  So glad its a new week.

Food wise, I've done really well - I know its just Wednesday --- but I feel good about my choices and my intake to what is burned.

Sunday afternoon, I got my first run in - in two weeks.  I was able…

10 days down

So I'm nearing the end of the tenth day and I'm down ten pounds! I feel great, my clothes are fitting better (some even too loose) and my new eating habits are becoming more of a habit. What's more motivating than real results?? So far so good! :)

My weekly update

A pound off I think this week which is good all things considered. Bought some expensive scales which turned out to be crap and can never decide on a reading...when it does it's a stone heavier -or lighter within 5 minutes of stepping on! I'm sticking with my mechanical scale for now.I can't describe the hideous feeling of the scale suddenly saying a stone heavier then a stone lighter..it's like someone really screwing with you!

The experiment with Konjac root goes on.…

Weekly Update - 4/23,

Weight - Down 1.6 pounds. I admit I love seeing me make progress!

Exercise - 4 runs & 1 bike ride in this week. Love running outside again.

Food - Not perfect, but I am making better choices most of the time.

Mood - Even with my loss & things going better, my depression & overall mood is down. An office environment can be extremely toxic. It is harder to cope there than in the kitchen.

You're not going to believe it

...but I am sick--AGAIN! Our family has always been relatively healthy, but these past two months have done me in. First we had the stomach bug (the kids and myself), then the flu (the kids and myself), then my daughter had a random fever virus, and now I have strep throat! I felt totally fine when I woke up yesterday and by evening I was miserable. Sore throat, tender glands, white patches on my throat--I knew exactly what it was. I went to the clinic first thing this morning and sure…

Got By

Got by last night without a gain from my abandon ship night.

Thanks for all the love ladies.  We are better today.  Sad yes ... but I don't think there are any tears left in my head.

The scale is my compass

I have always struggled with scale. It is so very powerful in determining my self worth. On my way to work today I realized the scale is simply a tool. A compass. It tells me where I am & where I need to go. I think I just need to keep reminding myself of this. I have been going in the right direction lately. I am getting closer to my destination. The journey is not easy. I beat myself up pretty hard a lot. I just want to be healthy. I want to get there already. Patience has not been my… Continue

Abandon'd Ship

Well, its been a sucky day my friends.  Today we said goodbye to one of our pets.  He's not just a pet, we was a total member of our family.  Yes, I'm a crazy animal lover.  He was our first Chihuahua.  I've always had large dogs; but he stole our hearts from the word go and now we own three (well, two now - plus a big dog and a cat who adopted us back in September).  This guy, this guy - He was special and I've never owned another dog like him and I doubt I ever will.  I've never been so…

The beginning of the end (of my unhealthy lifestyle)

Hello!

I've read posts on this blog for a few weeks now and the support you all provide each other is really motivating. I'm starting a new program, The 40 Day Reset. I've yo-yoed between this program and that program all my life and they all do the same thing, you lose weight but then when you end the program abruptly all the weight creeps back. This is what intrigued me about this program is that you have the initial 40 days that your "dieting" but then you have a coach to help you…

My Loves

One of the best things I did before having each kid was book newborn, 6 month and 1 year pictures. Otherwise it just gets crazy town, before you know it that time has passed, I forgot to book them and I just say "forget about it" I distinctly remember with my son that I was excited when picture time came around because I was losing weight, but I was not 100% happy because I was still pretty far from goal at his first birthday. This time I didn't even stress about it (well, except for the…

Good weather, good exercise

Yesterday the weather was perfect so we decided to go for a run. Not sure how far we would go, we ended up doing 6 miles. Today hit 80, a temp not seen since last year & to give my feet a break, out came the bikes. After work I hit the bike trail & got in my first ride of the season. Did 15 miles. It felt great. Tomorrow the weather will be much cooler. 60 I think. As long as it doesn't rain, I plan on getting in a run. Exercise is so good for my mental health. I do suffer from anxiety… Continue

Im still alive..

Okay... Last week I completely lost my drive and determination. You know what it had to do with?? The SCALE and my husband being the fucking douchebag that he strives to be!  I didnt share this on my MFP because idk I dont feel comfortable chatting about it but the reason why I lost my motivation is this...

  Remember how ELATED I was that I hit 169??? It happened to be on the spring scale that I had before my digital... the digital was giving me wrong numbers like 177 id get off and…

My weekly update

5lb weight loss this week which i can't quite believe. All I did was try not to starve, try not to eat too much and eat clean. I say 'All I did...' but these things are tough for me as I naturally self sabotage. Progress is met with countering measures.(based in fear, I think) So I'll be very pleased if I can continue my 'All I did's...' this week and into the next.

No BInge Week

This week wasn't as focused as last week but at least I didn't binge.  I haven't weigh this morning, but I think I managed to maintain --- it was a busy busy week. #2 son had three tennis matches this week that kept us on the road - so no time to cook and no time to get a run or a walk in.  I did go on two 3 mile walks with my friend, but didn't get to run.

Last Sunday of course, was wine tasting day with my oldest child and some of his college mates.  Turns out the boys backed out…
