Day 8 WI DAY :(

I gained. I did well during the week but on Sunday I ate terribly. And I only exercised 51 minutes all week. Accepting it and moving on.

New goals:

• Atleast 30 minutes 3Xs a week

• 3 water bottles a day

• Track daily food intake

I'm considering joining WW again. I think getting out of the house and attending a weekly meeting or 2 would help me meet new people. I'm having a hard time signing up for several reasons first and foremost I'm unemployed so money… Continue

Day 7

Good day today ran some errands with DBF passing on all the bad choices along the way which included a dunkachino, bagel with specialty cinnamon swirl cream cheese, donuts, pizza and fried chicken wings. I ate well and did some yard work!

Back to work. Back to consistency.

My summer was amazing and fun-filled. Who knew that a two-year old could add SO much fun to a summer?! This summer I: went with my whole family to Hawai'i (thanks Mom!), was in a wedding, hosted friends at my house, cloud-watched, went on mini trips, went to conferences, played in the park often, went…

I added strength training!

Today after being on the elliptical for 30 min I decided to add in strength training!  I've been thinking about it now that I'm in the groove of my cardio routine which consists of either a 2 mile walk outside or on the treadmill, or 30 minutes on the elliptical.  Today I took action & picked up my 8 lb weights & went to town! I'm so proud of myself & so excited that I didn't think about it for weeks on end before I actually did it!  I'm going to try to get in 3 strength sessions…

Three Day Difference

I've basically eaten like garbage in the three days I weighed in at 210 and let me tell you ~ I can feel a difference.  I woke up today and did a four mile workout with five pounds weights.  It was rough.  But I did it.  I could even feel that crappy food weighing me down and holding me back.  I have four days left to get this back on track before the next weigh in and I kind of really have to...

I have Saturday night plans and have a special outfit I need to fit into by…

foot injury & spin?

I tried spin today. Good music. Brian was not there.  My foot hurts but I can do it if I stay seated.  Standing up sends shooting pains through my foot, but at least its something I can do. The seat is as uncomfortable as ever :) I need to find things I can do until this injury heals. I am already putting on weight.  I only did 6 miles last week of various activity but this week so far I am up to 13 gotta keep it moving.

coffee in the evening...

makes for a long night being wide awake! I had a good day and night though. Got a lot done around the house today, floors done, dishes done (for 10 seconds until more dishes were made dirty), laundry washed dried and folded (putting it away is the last, hardest part..dunno why) and I grilled a bunch of chicken breasts I had marinating. I am trying to plan for the camping trip this weekend and went shopping for some healthi-er stuff- I got apples so I can have those for snacks instead of…

Florida Day 1

Sorry for being gone a few days everyone.  Honestly, I was running out of pain medicine for my broken arm and I was trying to conserve them so I'd have some on vacation, and I was hurting, grumpy, and tired so I just didn't get to posting.

Sunday was weigh in and official weigh in was 188.2.  Slowly but surely.  We got on the plane for FL at 7am this morning and we were here by 1pm.  I have two goals for my eating while here: no FRIED foods (esp. french fries--I am soooo over…

Here we go...again

So I'm getting back in the saddle again. Today i took my 4 yr old to camp and then took my 1 yr old on a walk. I pushed her up this insanely steep hill for the resistance and even stopped and did stairs a couple times, while she watched and giggled at mommy flapping up and down. 

I have the beginning of a migraine so I'm having my first diet coke of the day. I'm sore and full from a lovely dinner. My hubby and I are taking a cruise in a few months and I have a new goal of being 50 lbs…

Almond Milk

So I bought some Almond Milk to try.  Tasted great.


I am not allergic to almonds, in fact I put some in my asparagus side dish last night.  So why when I drank it did my tongue start to tingle?  And hours later now the tongue still feels weird, as if i ate too hot pizza.  My mom said I was crazy.  Turns out my friend had the same thing happen.


Anyone else?  Am I crazy?

PERHAPS There Was A Celebration Yesterday...

You know, in honor of reaching 210 pounds and all.  Makes perfect sense to eat as much junk food as possible, doesn't it?  To be honest, it wasn't a binge.  I was just in the mood for it and decided I was going to have it...  Although now I'm wondering if that goes along with the whole self sabotaging thing we've been talking about lately considering the backwards thinking of I hit my lowest weight so let me go out and eat too much junk food.  Hmmm.  I'll have to think about that for a…

3 weeks in and 6 lbs lighter!

Yesterday I jumped on the scale just to get a sneak peak & I was a whole pound lighter than I am today on my official WI day!  I lost 1.5 this week but if my WI was yesterday it would have been 2.5!  It annoys me & I was tempted to just write yesterday's weight down, but I have to be honest & go with what the scale says today.  I did well yesterday, I drank tons of water and made great choices at a picnic!  What would you record as your WI weight if you were me?  I peek at the…

Well family game night with my family happend yesterday and I was not as in control! I didn't stop and think and the 2 glasses of sangria weren't a good influence either lol it wasn't awful but way too much dessert! I'm not super upset about it so I'm just moving on and going to make it a better day today!

it's ok part II

the weekend is over and I'm ok.

I did ok. I think at least. except when it comes to drinkin water I could have done better over the weekend. during the week it's never a problem as I always have my waterbottle with me and refill it. but during the weekends I don't. I'll have to change that.

I have a head ache.

I'm tired.

I have to hand in my thesis tomorrow and I'm nowhere near the finish of it. A long night ahead of me.

I shouldn't be blogging right now.…

Sunday, 1500 cals, feeling relaxed

I had a good day today. I got a lot done around the house yesterday which I like to do before the busy Sunday church stuff begins. I run our baby nursery which can get pretty busy and I am usually exhausted by the time I get home around 1pm. I had 2 eggs and a slice of light swiss with coffee for breakfast, which held me over nicely. We went to a birthday party after and I had 1.5 slices of pizza and a small peice of cake. The cake was good or I would have thrown it away. The mom said she…

2 more days and what I ate today and pix.....

We leave on Tuesday and I can hardly wait. I'm ready. I'm in the mindset of getting back on track. I have to keep telling myself that all is not lost even though I'm feeling very defeated.  By defeated I mean I feel like I've thrown in the towel for this vacation. If you don't believe me or think I'm exaggerating just check out my list 'what I ate today' list that follows. So, that's that. It's done and I'm counting down the time until I get on the plane to go home. To be really honest, I'm…

Summer's almost over?!?!?!

Yes, in 2.5 weeks my #1 will be starting kindergarten. Where did the time go? Better yet, in my mind, I just started summer. Oh well...

My new goal for the next 100 days is to eat real food meaning food that contains less than 6 ingredients that I can pronounce. I did this about three months ago but then I got sick for about a week and the hubby introduced fast food again to the system and the addiction came back. So did the family sickness. We are now back on the wagon.…

I don't know how it happened, but my official weigh in was 210 pounds yesterday.  It actually brought tears to my eyes and I don't know if they were tears of happiness or tears of fear.  I took a lot of time to reflect on this before I posted (hence the post a day later than usual) and I decided that I am doing what I can when I can ~ I try to drink enough water every day, I try to exercise regularly and build up the intensity as my body is ready for it, and I have always struggled with the…
