No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I'm eating on plan, ending the day under my calorie goal or just slightly over but not to the point of maintanence. I jogged 7 miles yesterday. I'm now sleeping again. I'm not stressed. I'm happy. Today I danced with some other teachers in front of the whole school at the assembly in the faculty skit. The kids LOVED it!! I've been wanting to take part in the skits since I started there but I could never leave my kids in case they had a behavior problem. Today though the skit was a…Continue
Ok, I know you must be tired of reading the same thing, but I promise this'll be the last time I post it. I've finally set my half marathon schedule! I combined it with the training program for a 10K (first race postpartum, December 3rd) and will be ready to run my halfie on January 29th. There, it's set, no more.
I had a pretty active day, vacuumed, stretched, cleaned, sorted, walked. I went to the gym to walk for 20 minutes right before my hubby left to work, it was an…Continue

Lunch - JC Chicken Carbonara - skipped salad today
Snack - skipped...ugh was busy cooking
Dinner - cooked...
One of the things I am most proud of on this journey has been my consistency. This journey to loose the last 5-10 (may end up being 15) pounds has not been fast, rather it has been slow and steady. There have been a few ups and a few downs, but they have not been the roller coaster of loss and gain that I experienced in the past. In the end—consistency—has been one of the most important skills to master.
I have also learned along this long weight loss journey (3+ years) that there…Continue
why cant i stop eating, I have come so far now i am just messing it up. hate hate hate it.
I was shooting for a good day and today was pretty good. Did my Power 90 Sweat DVD and kept calories under control. I still have another 8 weeks until Thanksgiving and I hope I can reach my goal of dropping a few before the holidays come. Tomorrow I do my weekly weigh in and hope to see a loss. I hate how much the scale controls me, but I need to use it to keep things in check. I am keeping with my eating something every 2-3 hours during the day so I don't over indulge and so far so good.…Continue
Ooooh I'm so happy that it's Friday. TGIF!!! Got on the scales again today. 162.7. Same as yesterday, but I had a feeling I would be. Today I got up this morning and did P90X legs and back with Ab Ripper X. So tough, but LOVVVED it. I am feeling reallllly good lately. I am STILL going to lose more though. I would LOVE to get down to about 150 or even 145! Me and this other teacher are walking together and kind of helping each other out.
Tomorrow I have a tourney (only three more after…Continue
Well--weighing at the doctor's office was such a "treat". I was sitting in the waiting room and after a while, the nurse came to the door and called my name. I followed her to the scale. I got on it and turned my back away from it because I didn't want to see. (I knew that the amounts would be more due to the food and liquid in my stomach and that I was fully clothed) and so the nurse asked me to move back a little thinking it was throwing the scale off a bit--and so I moved. Then she…Continue
Another weekly weigh in. It wasn't the best week, it wasn't the worst week. I ate more than I should have on Sunday. I cut back on my food on Monday and Tuesday to make up for it. Didn't really exercise after Saturday's 10 mile run. Burnt out maybe?
Ended up down 2, I believe. The scale has been acting wonkly lately. But, I believe it's 2 pounds this week. That would mean I'm (finally) less than when I went on vacation in August. It would be lowest I've been in over a…
Whenever I tell someone I'm training for my first half marathon, I get that "Really? You think you'll finish it?" look. I am 100% sure I'll cross that line, I don't care if I'm dragging one of my legs or carrying it over my shoulder, I'll finish it. But every time someone gives me that face, it's like a little rock hits my face.
My sales professor (one of my favorite teachers ever) used to say that there's an inverse relationship between fear…Continue
I did another late workout last night, even though I was sleepy, but I seriously have this new inner strength and I'm happy with myself. Today is day 6 I have already worked out and I went on another walk. My eating will be a challenge this weekend, b/c I'm have a birthday party for my son, but I think I will fill up on water before so I don't overindulge. I had a great moment last night. My man went to the store and was getting stuff for the party and he got ice cream and wanted to know if…Continue
I have been drafting this in my head all morning. I walked out of my doctor’s office in tears and needing to process everything that had just happened.
After a few pleasantries, he flat out told me he’s worried about me. I’m no longer in a position to say I “want” to lose weight, I NEED to lose it. After looking through my records, I’m 20lbs heavier since my previous heaviest weight, and 70lbs heavier than my lowest on record with him. My blood pressure is so high I can’t even be…Continue
I hate the feeling of starting over AGAIN. Every rejoin at WW, Jenny Craig, Medifast or whatever my latest fad diet is starts with so much motivation and determination that quickly fades.
I have lost large amounts of weight three times before and eventually fall off the wagon and do the gain back plus some. Any plan really works if you stick with it. I just HAVE to stick with it this time.
The one positive I tell myself this time is it is not beginning…Continue
i am doing quite great these days
the only bad thing - i ate some cheese and curbs
cause there isnt much vegies and fruits at my house, so i have to eat something
but still, i think im starting to let myself something too much : )
i should tighten up my belt a little more
I just threw away the frozen remains of my chocolate birthday cake. I froze the cake so I wouldn't eat huge pieces the day after my birthday. But really...what I did was ensure that I would have cake for a long time. And I have eaten cake every day since my birthday last Friday.
Evidently turning 35 grants no more wisdom than turning 5 did for me 30 years ago. I thought I was on a path towards maybe getting gradually better....but instead I once again (for the millionth friggin…Continue
Well, I certainly turned the day around yesterday, in large part to everyone's helpful comments. My stomach stopped hurting about half-way through the day. I ate healthy, starting with eggs for breakfast, which kept me more full longer. When hubby got home, I told him my plans to watch a mindless favorite tv show (Jersey Shore) and work out while watching. Then I made sure to do it!
Today I will be more busy since son is home from daycare, so less tempted to sit around and…Continue
I am so ready to get into October. September was not a good month for me and I plan on turning it all around in the new month. I did look at the scale and saw 231.6 this morning. I'm a little over four pounds heavier than I was at the beginning of the month, and actually in a weird way I was fairly pleased to see that number. I seriously thought I had done way more damage than that. However seeing that is enough to shake me into my old ways of healthier thinking.
I don't know where I got the idea that my HM training would take so long. It's not 4 months, 12 weeks equals THREE months. Dummy. I swear, I'm glad I rarely leave the house unaccompanied, I'd get lost. So, anyway, that's good news! I get to ease into it (I'm so happy!!) and get to train for the 10K in December without worrying so much. *siggghhhh*
So, the actual training starts on *checking schedule* Monday, November 7th!!! That should be plenty of time. I'm…Continue
Yesterday I made my commitment that I wanted it hard enough and I was going to work for it. Today I followed through and I was on track.
I did weigh in after saying I was going to keep my scale put away, but I did it half dressed and after my shower with wet hair. So it wasn't accurate. I tried hard not to weigh in, but I just felt like I had to.
I went for a 7 mile jog with some walk breaks. There were very strong winds. I felt like I was being blown around on the…Continue
There are no other words to describe the utter exhaustion and dread of getting out of bed in the morning to go to work! The exhaustion is from working so much and the dread is just from no sleep. I feel like everything I'm doing at work is 100% half-ass. Now I'm just wondering how exactly that works - 100% 50%-ass. I really don't mind it once I'm there but when you're not sleeping enough it's just the get-out-of-bed-and-just-do-it mentality that is tough. Tomorrow will be super long. I'm…Continue
