Not what I was expecting = starting over

So a few weeks ago I decided to go back on Atkins which helped me lose 100 pds in the past along with giving me a ton of energy. I've been following it for 3 weeks. And I am torn. I have seen no loss on the scale but I have seen a change in my body as well as my energy. I have started doing tabata everyday which is great. I am sleeping great, my digestion is awesome however I am not seeing any scale loss. So I am reaching out for opinions do i continue to stick with it and throw scale out?…

i sometimes go back & read old blogs damn I have been struggling for way too long. It is so hard not to get discouraged. It seems I just can not find what works for me. I just do not want to go back to weighing, calculating & feeling deprived. I just have to find something to do. I don't want another month to go by without any progress. I only have 1 more day before weigh in & this week would not be a good week to see a gain. Ugh!

Tough Times Ahead

February is a fun, but TOUGH month around here. The celebrations begin tomorrow. We are going out for a much needed date night. It's been far too long. We are going to our very most favorite, family owned Italian restaurant. It is amazing. My game plan is to eat slow and stop when I'm satisfied (that's the hard part because it's so good!!) Then next week is my birthday. We didn't really have anything planned because we knew we were going out tomorrow. Then a friend called today and asked me…

Funny How...

 Its my break day  just checking in and saying hello!  Hope you girls are having an amazing week!  I think it strange how I get ignored by certain people on this site. I will publicly apologize for offending anyone if I have, Its like a slap in the face to publicly comment on a persons blog and get completely ignored all the while they are commenting on other blogs.  Yes I am talking about you. Isnt this a site where we are supposed to support each other and be friendly.... if that isnt what…

Check In

Its better for me to check in to say that "I suck this week" -- than to say nothing at all.  I don't want to get into the habit of becoming lackadaisical with this.  I want to be held accountable.  I want to become consistently intentional with my eating and with my weight loss efforts; and posting here is a part of that process.

What held me back this week.  Well - I held me back this week.  The temperatures have been a little colder than I like to get outside and run.  Although - I…

I finally decided to track my running. Hey, running on a treadmill isn't that interesting so you have to do something! So last night I messed up on the treadmill & lost the mileage. Don't ask! I was so angry. Damn touch screens. But tonight went better. I got in 5 miles. I have also begun to include some upper body work & ab work a few times a week. I am really looking forward to Spring. I want to run outside. It beats the treadmill for sure! Last year it was mostly running &… Continue

Good News!

I’m 15 pounds lighter! Of course, I’ve still a ways to go (much to my shame), but it’s not a bad start. 21 days of chicken, steak, ribs, eggs, bacon, and salad have paid pretty impressive dividends.  I miss the taste of fruit already, but I can hold out for a while, especially if I continue to see decent results. I…

Terrific Tuesday

  So its day 2 of the fast.. lol. I feel like this is just as normal as its ever been for me. So thats a good thing. I woke up and did my normal social media sites. Then I cleaned a bit and decided it was time! Went down into my gym, knowing that this is the BEST time for me to burn through fat I did a 60 minute Turbo, the longest and best one. She literally tells you when you are stretching after the workout that you just did the same amount of work as running over 7 miles. So…

Eat Up!

Well, it happened again. On the old Weight Watchers plan it took  me awhile to realize that I needed to EAT. I was not intentionally starving myself (or even really feeling hungry) but was just not eating enough to fuel my workouts and my body reacted by holding onto weight instead of dropping it. Long story short, I realized that if I would eat the points I earned for activity, I actually lost more weight. With the new rollout of the program, I have had to reevaluate how many points I use.…

Superquick post

Gonna post superquick rather than not post at all. I want to post once per week, Monday is good because I can report on the past week. 

February has started off good in terms of exercise- I think I exercised every day last week except Saturday. Wait, I did some neighborhood canvassing on Saturday, so I did walk alot, but it wasn't continuous. Still, the movement helped my heart, I'm sure.

I'm committed to my Bodypump class twice per week. I think my activity…

Beastette Monday!

 Well Today is my first official day of Intermittent fasting. Basically you just skip breakfast and workout before you eat. LOL ... Ive been reading all sorts of things about it on Pinterest and the interwebs. So this is just what I needed because I needed that boost to workout before evening anyway, since Ill be starving until after I workout .. that ought to be just enough motivation eh?!  Basically its saying this.. that without the food in your system your body will burn off a lot more…

Welll Today I woke up feeling fit and thin.. HA. Im like okay lets step on this scale. 179.8.... almost 180 fkn pounds. Im frustrated yes but Im not crying my eyes out like usual.  Im just gonna stop eating more calories because obviously that is not healthy for me and my weight loss.

Weekly Update - 2/6

Weight - Up 0.2 pounds. Fluctuating right? Got to leave this maintenance mode.

Exercise - I ran 6.03 miles on the treadmill last night. I might just try a 10k this summer.

Food - good choices 80/20.

Mood - Good & I was on cloud 9 when I was able to run 6 miles! I am kind sore today but it is okay. I am going to take it easy today. I have read that it is so important to have recovery days.

This morning I went to an "art crawl". There were so many… Continue

Happy Saturday! :D

  Good Morning Blog To Lose folk. I should not be up right now, been having horrible trouble staying asleep lately so I find myself going to bed at 2 0r 3 AM and waking up at 7.... then napping on and off all day... I do not like that! Naps do not energize me at ALL as a matter of fact they make me feel more tired and lazy than I did before the nap! Im hopin my schedule will fall into some normalish range soon! So yesterday was a big flop for me... I went down to the basement with every…

Overnight Oats

I finally tried overnight oats and I have been addicted. It takes 5 minutes to make up at night & I love it for breakfast. I do warm mine up a bit in the microwave. It simply fills me up! I have really stopped eating so much. There is like a zillion different recipes out there, but I have been stuck on my almond butter oat recipe. I plan to try more. I have been doing better with eating. I work toward eating wholesome. I have given up perfection. It just isn't working for me.

Rocky Balboa

Last night the hubs and I went to O'Charley's for a mid-week date night.  The youngest was working and the oldest ... well, he lives on his own in the city now.  (sad sad momma).

Anyway we get there and guess what?  Its Free Pie Night.  ..... OH SHIT!

I got my usual salad and glass of pino.  And well..... we got Pie.  My husband took his home and I'm like - If I'm cheating I'm doing it all at once and not prolonging it into another day.  I'll just have to get up tomorrow…

At Home Workout

I love the gym. I like the energy I feel in group classes. I like the way the instructors and classmates push me to do more than I would do on my own. I like the way there is a specific time I'm committed to getting my workout in. However, life happens. I'm in a stage of life that is hard to make it to the gym more than twice a week. Between preschool, naps, and wanting to see my husband, that just leaves little time to go. I'm a big believer in making time for yourself, but I'm also…

Still here

Wow, I can't believe my last post was Dec 7, pretty much two whole months ago. It seemed like I had checked in more recently to talk about using the Lark app. 

I kept meaning to update about how Lark is going, and I would save copies of the messages it sends me, meaning to do a post, but I never got around to it. Lark isn't really motivating me that much, even though I like interacting with it. I still eat whatever. I think I need to do MyFitnessPal. Nothing has ever made me…
