June here I come!

Well we are halfway through another year. Now is not the time for me to look back and wonder if I could have done things differently; it is time to move forward.

I have realized that I need to take baby steps with my health goals. So for June, I want am going to drink at least 60oz of water a day and work out at least 4 times a week for 45 minutes.

'Mobility' - oh please, how hard can it be?

Mobility class. The only problem is I can't move.

I can barely walk. Take that back. I can barely move. Take that back. I CAN'T move. At all.

This week I've been committed to getting my ass to go and work out as much as possible - bike riding, gym, whatever. It really helps with the stress and exhaustion from work, end of the year, etc. So, the gym changed up all their cardio classes and the names of all the classes. I've not been going to them because they usually aren't that…

Bread is cooling.

And the kids are watching Yo Gabba Gabba! so I have a few minutes to spend on BTL.  Yay :)

I baked two loaves of bread today so I can freeze one.  My husband has stopped eating the one we used to buy at the store, he says mine makes e/thing taste better.  He's sweet but he's finishing off my bread faster than I can eat it.  I also feel a lot better after eating more grains, I've been going over my food journal and I can really see the difference since I started eating more…

Enough is enough!

I have so many excuses as to why my weight is almost back up to where it was when I started on this in the world did I gain almost all of the 50 pounds I lost back??  Nursing school on top of working, life and kids doesn't help much with my eating and exercises but that's no excuse.  I am a huge stress eater and nursing school is stressful to say the least!  I'm sitting here beating myself up after scarfing down a Carl's Jr burger and fries for lunch........ENOUGH!  I know…

thinking of using compression socks...any thoughts?

So I had a massage yesterday and I had a great run!! Unfortunately I cannot have a massage every week so I am thinking of getting a pair of compression socks for running. The issue is my calves tightening up. Has anyone used them? I also got my partner to go into the treadmill factory and find out how to adjust our treadmill. When they set it up they put the zero incline position at a slight incline and I am finding it is causing my calves to tighten up quickly. Hopefully with that…

I'm tired happy to report that the Big 7 has been crossed off my training calendar.  I woke up and wondered why I'd set my alarm so early, then I remembered.  Then I wanted to ignore it and came up with about 100 excuses.  Then I remembered I'd have to share that with you all so I got up, got dressed, and left.  Man, not early enough.  I finished around 9:20 and it was HOT and starting to get even more humid.  My feet are sore, my legs…

Late Night Early Morning

I was up arguing with the ex until the wee hours of the morning and then had to get up super early to drop my son off at graduation rehearsal (YAY!).  Needless to say I'm just not feeling today.  At all.  I'm exhausted and emotionally drained.  So much so that my body hurts.  Ugh.  WHEN is this going to get easier as promised?

Because I was up and out of the house so early I didn't have a chance to work out at home so after I dropped my son off I decided to walk the path near…

Vacation Check-In

I've been a crazy running fool these past two days.  I didn't think I could do it; actually told myself I couldn't.  And yet, yesterday, I got out and ran a mile.  And today?  Did it again, and for a personal best (according to my Nike+)!!  It all goes to show that half of the problem lies in your head.

I'm having fun visiting.  We went to the water park yesterday and, minus a little sunburn on my shoulders, we had a blast.  My nieces (9 and 7) are a lot of fun.  Today we're…

new goals - new motivation - new try

actually new try sounds weird. someone of you said in her post that basically trying doesn't work. and I agree. as she said you do it or you don't. I didn't do it. nope. I shamefully admit.

and I'm not gonna say that I will try once more. No I AM GONNA DO IT!

I started about 6 weeks ago. I lost about 2kgs I think. I will know for sure tomorrow as I will do my weigh in.

It's not a lot losing 2kgs. I'm sad about it, I'm ashamed and frustrated. But once again it was my…

One last thing.

Tomorrow's my big 7 and I'm not afraid, just realizing the time has come to really put myself on the line.  It hadn't happened since that time I signed up for my first race thinking it was a 5K when I found out it was really a 5 miler a week before... well, I ran it and since then didn't look back.  I have a feeling tomorrow will be the same.  It's exciting to think tomorrow will make me dig in and pull out all the stress that I haven't been able to shake off.  No worry can hang around in…

More positive post ..

So today I worked out to kickboxing, then my cousin went for a walk with me! I am sooooo happy! She has been dealing with weight for a LONGGGG time. She has finally decided to do something about it and I am so proud of her! It makes me feel great knowing she is wanting to change for the better, and it makes me feel even more awesome knowing I am partly the reason. We walked 3 miles she got a horrible blister because of her low cut socks :( awww. I am just happy I am influencing people in my…

Horror at the Amusement Park

I was on vacation in Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge, TN through Memorial Day weekend. While we all enjoyed the trip and an opportunity to get away from home for a few days, the big finale was on Saturday when we went to Dollywood.

For anyone unfamiliar, Dollywood is an amusement park with several coasters, water rides, and other…

You don't need to eat it just because it's there.........

I think making myself blog every day and write everything I eat has really helped lately. As many of you know, I recently bought a scale and am using it kind of regularly. I had this whole graph thing set up on the wall and I was going to weigh every day but the graphing was starting to look like an irregular EKG so now I just step on every few days or so. It hasn't changed much - fluctuates between 181 and 185. I thought I would care more and part of me wants to get down to 175 before I…

What's going on, BTL?! I miss keeping up with all of yall. I just haven't had anything exciting to post recently about my weight. I think I may have lost another 5 pounds or so, cause I've gotten a lot more comments recently, but I'm also really tan and feel like I may just be tricking people into thinking I'm thinner. Haha, there's a diet trick ladies! 

Since last summer was the root of all evil done to my waistline, I set a few rules for myself for this summer. 1. Calorie counting…

Husband's day off and goals for June

My husband is off and that usually means we go out to eat.  He wants to spend time with me and I want to spend time with him but the kids are there so it's just a mess.  LOL.  It's not fun to be in a restaurant trying to have a date with two little monkeys throwing rice and beans around.  I told him I wanted to skip the dinner and that maybe we could have dessert later on tonight instead.  There's this ice cream place we really like but it's a long drive away.  It's a nice ride, the kids…

Reminder - It's ok to feel

I have this habit of trying to stop myself from feeling.  I remember the first day I consciously pushed down my feelings.  I look back on that day and it makes me sad.  Especially when I look at my own son and imagine him in a world where he would have to do that.  Nobody should have to live that way…

So annoyed

Sorry I have been missing in action lately. I am really irked with the way my weight loss has stopped. I have been watching my intake still working out but it isnt coming off. I was thinking maybe I need to change up my workouts, but honestly I dont want to. I like what I am doing. IDK maybe I need some laxatives. I just feel blah and stuck. I had a frigging GREAT Week last week! I mean come on I hit that goal of 199 then lost another 2 on top of that. Now I am sitting at 200. What in the…
