I wore a bikini on vacation!

I'm back from 2 weeks of vacation!   We've been home a week and a half now.  We spent one week in Disney for me DD's national jump rope competition and then took a cruise to Nassau and Freeport,  Bahamas!  Competition was awesome!  Her team did outstanding!  This was my first time judging at the national level and it was fun! 

My weight fluctuated up a bit, in the 2 weeks leading up to vacation.  I was 145.8 when we got home and I've took 4 pounds off in a matter of days.  I'm hoping…

Happy Summer, back to tracking and working out :-)

I've been off school for a whole month now and it has been glorious. I started back on my eating templates June 12 and have lost a few lb's since then! Looking forward to more pounds off and to reaching my goals in a healthy way. School starts up in a month or so and I am looking forward to some big changes next year, I'm going from full time to part time which should free up enough time for me to have dedicated gym time and self care time. For the last three years, I have been so busy with…

Weekly Update 6/10

Weight - last week up 0.8 pounds. This week down 0.2 pounds



Exercise - Running & doing resistance training. Seriously I have this down.



Food - Ugh. Going to be doing the 21 Day Elimination Diet.

I had my first appointment with my functional medicine Dr. yesterday. Tests are being run to check if my hormones are wonky or not. She thinks I may have Lyme and due to GI issues a possible parasite. I am to do the elimination… Continue

139.8

I have made it into the 130's just barely!  I'm so glad I'm continuing my progress.  I have a vacation coming up in a month and I'm motivated to get my butt into a bathing suit!

Weekly Update - 5/20

I went to a free talk that was given at a new functional medicine office. I really could relate to what she was speaking on so I booked an… Continue

So close to the 130's :)

I weighed in at 140.8 today!  I'm not complaining, I promise, but I am losing at a faster rate lately than what I had been and I haven't changed anything.  I wish I knew why, so that I can keep up the trend!  Have a great week!

Doin okay

I'm doing alright exercise wise. I swam on Monday it was a little slow but I did it. Tuesday I ended up going out with friends so I didn't run. However I made up for it tonight by running and swimming both. I ran a 13 minute mile on the treadmill which wasn't too bad and then I swam a half mile in 29 minutes which was good.

Food wise I'm not doing as well. Its easier for me to exercise than it is for me to eat right because I like food and I like crappy food if I'm being…

Today

No progress food or exercise wise today. I really just had a free for all. Not really a good thing but I didn't have plans to do anything either so I'm not disappointed. I did go clothes shopping today and found some shirts that made me feel pretty good so I'll take that. It's really difficult for me to find clothing that I love myself in that this is always a good thing and a big hurdle for me when I do find clothes that I love. tomorrow I'll be swimming. I usually go about a half mile. I'm…

Trying again...

Lets give this a go again. I don't know what it is about this blog but it never feels quite right. So I start then I stop and forget about it for a while and then I try again to give it a go because I need something, help, support? I dunno what. So here I am again. I haven't really exercised much since the Triathlon except the last week. I started swimming 3 days a week and running 3 days a week. I've been lazy I gained like 15 lbs and I'm the heaviest I've ever been. It's not horribly bad,…

Spring is in the air

Good morning!  I'm happy to report that I've lost 15.3 pounds since July with a few months in the fall of maintenance before I got back into weight loss mode!  I'm really itching to get into the 130's.  I have to start walking.  I've been thinking about it and just not doing it.  My wardrobe has expanded because clothes that were put aside that didn't fit me this time last year, fits me now :)  Some are actually a little loose!  YOOHOO! 

I have continued to make a couple new…

6 weeks in

Well it's 6 weeks in and this is where I usually fall off the wagon train.  But this time, I'm strapped in and hanging on.

The last two weeks have been slow going.  down .4 and then .8.  I'd love to see some whole numbers.  But I know its all me and the choices I was making.  Trying to get on board completely this week.  Overall, I'm down a solid 8#s since getting on program.  Wish it was more, but at least I am loosing so I will keep my chin up.

I'm not looking for perfection,…

I lost a pound this week!

It's encouraging to see a whole pound lost, after loosing small amounts for so long.  I'm still doing what I have been doing all along.  I'm tracking my calories and macros in MFP, weighing my food on my kitchen scale, prepping lunches ahead of time for work and planning/prepping dinners ahead of time.  On Fridays we usually work through lunch and then I'm starving by the time I get home.  I have been bringing snacks with me that I can eat at my desk or in the car. Yesterday I had to go to…
