That Didn't Go as Planned

Remember how I was Crushing It on friday? Well, the weekend didn't go as planned--but it's not as bad as it sounds. I did great on Saturday. My family went to the Children's Museum and I knew they planned on eating there. I packed my own lunch to help me stay on track (while they ate things like cheeseburgers with pulled pork on top, fries, pizza, and chips) On Saturday night I went to bed not feeling great and then on Sunday that horrible stomach bug my little girl had hit me full force. I…

I don't want to do it but....

I have tried to not have to calorie count since I just got so burnt out with it. My approach has been to just eat healthier but cut back on how much. It has helped me lose some, but I have been maintaining too long. It is time to get to goal & after reading some other successful losers, I realize I have to count. Ugh! This time I am not going to go too crazy with it like I did before. March is almost here and I want to start seeing losses. I am also going to use a running training schedule.… Continue

Crushing It

I'm in the zone this week. After two weeks of big celebrations (where I was able to basically maintain) I was ready to buckle down and get it done this week. So far, so good. The weekends are the hardest for me--so I'm here to hold myself accountable and say that up until this point I have been right on track with food choices. I have tracked everything, stayed within my points, and made good choices. Sweets are my weakness and I had fallen into the habit of having something every night…

after 6 weeks

Well, I weighed in this morning and I was down a total of 7 pounds after 6 weeks.  I know many people don't think that is much but for me it is something to celebrate.  I have a very hard time losing weight after the big 50 birthday and running a ton seems to make me hold onto weight.  I do have a 1/2 marathon this summer I need to train for but in the end I think I am going to start doing more of the HIT training that I am reading so much about.

High intensity training, some aerobic…

Two weeks

 Yes its been two weeks since Ive had a true workout. Talk about a horrible feeling writing that down. That scale fucked my mind all up last time I got on it, because I was putting so much work into all of it the food and the workouts and nothing changed. My jeans are still tight too, NOTHING changed! So what did I do, lol.. what I always do! Ate whatever I wanted and didnt do SHIT. Kept telling myself tomorrow is the day... wtf. Thats such a shit attitude to have and I KNOW IT.

Not me, although, I gladly would have taken the sickness instead of my daughter. Poor, sweet girl had her first major illness. She caught a stomach bug that started Saturday night and by Monday morning I was really worried about her. She slept until 9am when I had to wake her to take my son to school and then she fell asleep on the 2 minute drive there. She could barely hold her head up and couldn't keep her eyes open. Anytime I gave her anything, she would completely empty the contents of…

1st Outdoor Run

Reading other posts of everyone getting outdoors I decided I wanted to get out too. There is still snow on the ground but the roads have finally cleared to the pavement so I decided I wanted to run outside. It hit 40 today. I went to the running trail at the park. The parking lot was full of snow. I figured they must not plow it this time of year. The path I was going to run was closed but there was still the loop. Part of it was icy that did require me to walk but I ran the loop 3 times &… Continue

Reeling It In...

For accountability purposes, I wanted to provide an update of my weekend.

Movement: - Completed my 5 mile walk with my friend.  Intended another today to keep loose but that didn't happen.  Got so focused on the "spring" cleaning that I let the day get away from me.

"Spring" Cleaning/Purging:  I got a really good start on getting our home in order.  I completed our whole first…

Nothing boost my mood like SUNSHINE and WARMTH in February. I grew up in Texas, but have lived in Ohio for the past 8 years. It's been an adjustment. I don't even mind the cold that much, but winter just lasts sooooooooooooo long and is soooooooooooo gray. Days like today are what keep me sane. It was in the 70s and sunny. We had no choice but to spend the day outside.…

Weight - Down 0.8 pounds ( could be due to having trots yesterday)

Exercise - I ran 4+miles (3) days last week. This was a goal I set last week.

Food - too bad my training here is not like my running.

Mood - Overlooked at work, feeling like a loser.

Goals for this week:

2. Eat 3 meals a day. Eat less at each.

3. Start a 10k training plan to… Continue

Accountability in the Raw

I feel like I lied last week and I apologize to each of you and mostly I need to apologize to myself.  I didn't get my shit together like I wanted.  I allowed circumstances and life take over my better judgement.  I have gotten lazy in taking care of me.  I was unintentional with my eating - well maybe I was intentional --- intentionally being rebellious.  The last time I got out and ran was a good two weeks ago and I feel like an absolute slug.  We had beautiful…

Bodypump or Bust

Last week wasn't what I would have hoped it would be, but that's okay. And this week isn't looking too promising either. Mainly, I'm not getting runs in, and food is still an untackled challenge. 

One good thing is that I have stuck to my twice a week bodypump (strength training) class, and I am extra proud of the fact that I didn't let a time conflict stop me. The class I attend is Tuesdays and Fridays at 6:30. On Tuesday, I had an evening meeting, so I was looking at not…

As expected, I was up a little bit at weigh in last night. 0.8 pounds to be exact. And you know what? It was worth it. I went out to dinner at a place that I very rarely go. I could have chosen something else--but in the grand scheme of life, I want to be able to have things that I love. We only go there on special occasions a couple times a year. I ate slowly, enjoyed every bite, and stopped when I was full (giving the rest to my husband). He stopped for a milkshake on the way home and I…

Im so excited.. and nervous.. and IDK!…

So yeah Ive been struggling hardcore this weekend and this week so far. I got on the scale last Thursday only to see that I hadnt lost a lb even though I was putting so much work into the program!  Im intelligent and strong minded.. I KNOW that scale is a stupidass way to judge my loss... but my JEANS and even comfy pants fit me snuggly to the point of being uncomfortable. So ... nothing is changing Im seeing NO Results even though Im killing myself working out 2 hours a…

Struggling again:(

I need some major motivation:( I was down 39 lbs and finally feeling better about myself and now lost that mindset and going backwards. I have gained at least 7  if not 10 back and cant get my shit together. 

I always get to the almost 200 lbs and lose it. I have no reason. My husband has had 2 months break off of chemo and life is going good. I do Piyo twice a week, volleyball once a week. I know it's all in what I eat but plan to do better and by noon I mess it up.

Why does…
