No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Ugh!!! Am getting nowhere fast. I won't even get on the scale because I'm don't want to know if I have crossed into the next decade. I have excuses galore, so many reasons why I "can't", "didn't", "couldn't", etc. None of them are valid (although they trick me into thinking they are, at the time!). The longer I procrastinate on getting started, the deeper I am digging myself into a hole, and the more I put my health at risk, the worse I feel, and so on, and so on......
So, I have to…Continue
My husband just left for work for the next five days and I am putting myself through a STRICT boot camp. I have already given up soda ~ which is truly the most difficult thing for me ~ but I have not been motivated to take the next step in my journey yet.
Today that changes. For the next five days I am eating a little something for breakfast, hitting the gym, and eating in. Those are some big changes for me... I never eat anything until late in the day, having the kids…Continue
My Y just added a new class and I'm loving it. It is half cardio spin (which I have never tried before) and half strength (tabata type) workout. The spin part is definitely something I am going to have to work on. It is a completely different kind of workout than I have ever done before. My quads are burning the whole time and I have a hard time when we have to stand for extended periods. The strength portion is a lot more what I am used to. We use resistance bands, agility ladder, and body…Continue

I have been thinking a lot about sacrifice. In order to accomplish this monumental feat (and all weight loss is a monumental feat) you have to be willing to accept some degree of sacrifice. Everyone's sacrifice is different. I think it used to be easier for me to sacrifice. My kids are older and demand more of my attention (I homeschool). My husband's job is more demanding and he is home less to help. So now I sacrifice my time, my sleep, my cleanliness of my home. (this one drives me…Continue
But it is so stinking HARD!!!
It's been about a month and I am down 15 pounds I have given up soda and it is been HARD but worth it. I really need to focus on the next step of this journey ~ whatever that may be. It feels great to have that weight off me, and I want to lose even more but I want to make sure that I do things the right way this time so I can make changes that will last me a lifetime.
Ever seen a picture of yourself and been surprised by what you see? Happened to me all the time at my highest weight. Don't get me wrong, I knew I was overweight and that I didn't like what I saw in the mirror--but it seemed like pictures were even worse. Seeing myself in pictures was one of the first motivators for me to let me know that I had to do something. For example, this picture taken after I had my son in 2012.…Continue
It would be fantastic if BTL had an app. I think thats why its to hard to blog. But blogging helps! I need to just suck it up and get it done! I still havent reached my goal. I am up and down emotionally and physically. I have been lazy this year. But I want to finish this year. I am on a running streak today is day 234 I already ran 1 mile this AM. Today I commit to myself to be better to do better. I have already lost 90lbs I CAN do the rest. I can be MY BEST. I don't know how many…Continue

Well I haven't been on here in a while. I have been so busy this summer that it's hard to make time for myself.
I've kept the weight off I lost perviously which is surprising but I think it's helped that I have been super active cause I know even though I'm a ww member the eating hasn't been the greatest. I am going to start going back to meetings this Saturday.
Also just purchased the 21 day fix. I haven't used containers for food yet mainly doing weight watcher until…Continue
Hopefully Ill stick to this now.. Im so tired of saying Im back on track when really i never stay on track. I cant even give a reason why Im not working out and lifting. Its gotta be some mental issue. Ive had a lot of things happen to me these past few months that I have fallen off.. AGAIN. My husband is an absolute alcoholic he is abusive when he is drunk and its taken a huge toll on me.. My friends that know me here might have read about this before, anyway he just got into a wreck while…Continue
