No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Tomorrow is my first official weigh in but before the big day I want to celebrate a NSV (non scale victory). I usually bomb on the weekends and this weekend has been awesome even with two meals out. This for me is a major victory and just proves it is possible to have a weekend binge free.
On Thursday night which is when my weekend starts the family wanted Buffalo Wild Wings and I of course went along for the ride but I did some research first and discovered they have a…Continue
haha...cute title eh? we are having an amazing time here in hawaii. i am just in awe of how beautiful it all is here....we have been swimming in lava heated pools and driving to some beautiful waterfalls and along some lovely coastlines. I haven't hiked as much as i'd like to...but it's a bit hard with such different aged kids and a hubby who loves the idea of hiking but not the actual hike. lol! hopefully today we'll head out and hike the crater in the middle of the island. i've read…Continue
I am so depressed. Scale shows the 0.8 loss from last week so I am at the same damn number I've been at all month. After killing myself with Insanity these last 40 days and trying so damn hard to make right healthy choices NOTHING?!! Makes me want to say the hell with this & eat whatever I want since eating less and giving up crap has amount to absolutely nothing. It is damn hard to not get discouraged. I just must be eating too damn much. I…Continue
I had a not so good yesterday. Too much food! I am moving on and today is a new day! That is all I have... short and sweet!
Okay, this is random, but I have to share. I bought a dress maybe three weeks ago that said L on the label. I assumed that meant "Large" and bought it without trying it on. I was in a hurry and with a friend, so I didn't bother. I got home that night, tried it on, but could barely get it over my butt. After working out a lot, I thought, Hmmm, I'll try it on again and see if it fits better. This time I got it on, but couldn't really zip it up. Frustrated, I checked the label again.…Continue
Ahhh, Homecoming. It makes me nostalgic. I remember my Senior year and being on the Homecoming Court. It was the first thing I did in high school that actually made my parents excited. Not the straight As, or taking all AP classes, or any of my band concerts, or being the lead in the play, or winning with my team in the firefighting competitions. But that was okay. :) As the teacher in charge of the Homecoming candidates and all of the itinerant festivities therein, I had a busy week…Continue
Today was so busy and fast there is no place to begin since it is all a blur right now. Well, not really, if it was a blur I'd be a lot more pleased that I couldn't remember or see it. lol We had College and Career Day at school - shortened schedule, hyper students, teaching hyper students and hosting one of the presenters in my room, etc. Madness. THEN, I stayed at work until 8 freaking pm to try and get caught up on my grading once and for all. It seems like I get just sort of ish caught…Continue
Oh my! It's been a long time since I have been here. Since quitting Weight Watchers I have been to Vegas, where I did fairly well at maintaining a little balance. Since I have been home it has become more difficult. I am certainly not making the right food choices, and a result have gained a few pounds. Plan to just keep plugging away. On line tonight looking for healthful recipies to make this week.Continue
In order for my to monitor my progress, I am going to start posting my weight. Of course, I will not live or die by the scale. My clothes are definitely looser since doing regular workouts. I just need to be accountable for the last quarter of the year. I weigh in on Sundays, for better or worse ;-)
Tonight my muscles are crying but I needed a tough workout. I made some good and some bad choices this week, but I am going to bed satisfied. Over all it has been a good week. I am kicking it with Insanity and as for diet, I would say I hit the 80% healthy eating. After weigh in tomorrow we'll see how much damage there has been. I've been doing some stress eating and for some reason I have truly been hungry. Maybe there are days when we…Continue
Every time I lay off sweets, I lose my sweets craving in less than two weeks. There is a distinct difference from the craving feeling I have when I allow sweets to be a daily experience, often more than once a day. During those periods, to tell myself know feels like a struggle. But sure enough after some abstinence- and this includes an allowance of a daily acceptable treat- to say no feels easy, like a no-brainer.
The only time my sweets desire flares up is when I am very,…Continue
There is nothing like bumping into the ex after losing 50 pounds since he has seen you, hair done, dressed super cute, and realizing that he has gained weight since the last time you have seen him. That just about sums up my night last night. Anyone? Anyone?
I actually had a Pampered Chef party to attend with my bestie so she took the night off from her boyfriend and I left the fiance at home with the kiddos and we headed out. The party went super quick so we decided to…Continue
So, I can't believe something as simple as a dress has created such great motivation for me! My sister is getting married in November and I need a dress to wear, simple right? I was shopping with my daughter and I saw a couple of dresses I like so we went to the dressing room. As I began to change my daugher noticed that I was very uncomfortable and she says,"Mom you're not fat, why do you always think that?" My 7 year old read my body language and it broke my heart. I don't want my…Continue
Well I'm not doing too much better. This has been a very stressful week. I finished my English paper but I had to put the algebra to the back burner in order to finish. I present in front of my English Lit class today, oh joy! Then I can focus on math. My test is Tuesday and that gives me very little time to catch up & prepare! I'm really stressed about the algebra. I currently have a 4.0 and algebra is the only class that might change that. I got and A in Pre-Algebra in the…Continue
So, currently not in the bast frame of mind. I'll make it short and sweet. Went to the hospital today, had a second mammogram and an ultrasound. The lump is curious, the Doctor tells me. It doesn't present as a typical malignant lump, but it's not a lymph node or calcification. It's solid. So, basically I have to go back on Wednesday and get a biopsy. Currently on my second glass of wine.
Other then that not a lot to report. Not so shockingly over calories…Continue
A good day. I kept calories in check and I had a good workout. I still have not warmed up to month 2, but I am giving it a chance. It is definitely working my muscles more. There are more push ups, planks, squats to help build muscle along with some drills that remind me of some kind of boot camp. Only 3 more weeks of this Insanity! Most of my food days have been good. Bob Greene's book said that we must do away with "bad" or "good" .…Continue
Okay so I realized today that I have lost 10lbs since the 17th of September...I started to really think about what I did in that time to lose that so fast. Here is what I have added to my diet...TUNA Ill eat a can of that with a dot of mustard and relish ...I used to eat tuna on toast or tuna with crackers but really it is just as satisfying just eating it plain(and less Calories!) I have been very strict with my intake No carbs, a lot of fruit, and yogurt. I have not had fast food in…Continue
Not much to report: super busy, feeling a little stressed out with Homecoming tomorrow, not sure where to start with all the work I have to do, but.....
I ran 2.75 miles today--34 minutes. I worked my butt off at school. Oh, and I dressed up today as the Double Rainbow for famous duo day. …Continue
Today was the first GREAT day I have had in a while in terms of my healthy lifestyle. My food was under control. I went to a Body Balance class and went on a hike with my doggie! It was just a nice day! Even had a 30 minute nap! (shhhh-don't tell anyone) :) I am feeling good and in control and want to repeat this day again tomorrow!!!
