What now?

Now I know it is possible for me to lose weight. I started at the beginning of the year and I'm down 42 pounds. It has been a very long process. While I'm excited about the weight I've lost, I still have at least 58 more pounds to go and now I have the pressure of "keeping up" with the weight loss since people are now noticing that I'm getting smaller. I've added going to group workout classes (yoga and zumba) but my eating habits are far from perfect. I'm just wondering, what now? I don't…

66 Days until the New Year - Day One

ETA - I typed this up on 10/26 - but haven't been able to publish it :(

Hello Friends far and wide. It has been almost a month exactly since I last posted; first news first, all came out well with my tests and biopsy. I swear the entire 4 weeks could be wiped from my memory and I would not mind at all. This last month has been crazy, stressful, but ultimately has concluded in my favor. :-)

While undergoing all the stress with my health (again, all OK), my mom also had a…

Oh Sandy........what have you done to my city. smh Its a mess Thankful that Im okay, however my thoughts and prayers are with others who have lost.

I thought on Saturday that I was preparing myself by buying all those veggies, thinking I'm going to be prepared for this storm and I have no choice but to eat right. For the most part that is what happened. Although I kept thinking i wish i had something sweet to nibble on to calm me down. I was able to get out yesterday and go to the… Continue

Getting motivated and it's working!

The view had a big weight loss/obesity special... did anyone else see it?  It was really interesting and it did remind me of how many good habits I'd let fall by the wayside, especially with managing carbs.  By the same token I had made a plan the day before that really was sound and one of the things on there was not drinking any calories.  Once my baby is on solids I'll tackle my diet a bit more strictly.

Today was another good day and I am feeling more energetic.  It may all be…

Day 1 at the conference

I had to wake up at 2am for a 5am flight this morning. So, when I arrived here I was wiped out but I had a couple of espressos and then decided it was best to hit the gym early rather than later. I was glad I did.

In short, I started out fine eating but it got worse as the day went on. Like it's so bad it's CAPITAL WORSE. LOL

I had a salad at lunch but ended up ordering room service later because I was too exhausted to go out. Room service is a recipe for disastrous eating since…

Whew! I thought it was Monday

For a minute there I thought it was Monday. But am really grateful its is Tuesday. I did pop in Power 90 Sculpt. It felt good. It is a good solid workout. Something to do that isn't Insanity, but does deliver a good work out just the same. I don't know about anyone else, but I can not wait for the election to be over. My phone does nothing but ring and it is always some "party" wanting to discuss it. After the stupid, costly recall election…

Manic Monday

Today was a whirlwind of a day. I started my first period class and then had a sub come in so that I could go and get my work visa renewed. Lots of time sitting in traffic and standing at immigration. They took out all of the chairs because they thought they could serve people faster. W.T.F. So, we stood. A LOT. We were there over 3 hours. I didn't bring my breakfast because for once I believed the people who are responsible for the paperwork. Ha. Silly me. Then it was non-stop when I got…

New DVD's

I did the Denise Austin DVD. I will not be doing it again. I did Biggest Loser Boot Camp yesterday and liked it a bit more. Tomorrow I just might do Power 90 Sculpt. I need to get in some resistance training. I had a good day at work. NO CRAP SNACKS!! The new cube is working out well for that. It is much quieter so it makes me more conscious of eating as I can hear my jaws chomping ( I have a bit of the TJM) I had 2 good day in a row with…

Vegan week - Days 2 & 3

Vegan week is going well! I'm almost halfway and feeling great too :)

I'm also surprised that I haven't been snacking, nor really feeling hungry in between meals, and I have no idea why. I don't believe I'm eating larger amounts of food than usual, so maybe my body was feeling in need of a detox? Anyway, this is my food journal of the last two days:

Oct 28th (Day 2)

B- Coffee with rice and soy milk, müsli

Stressed Mom! I need to vent.

I am ready to explode. I have been so stressed out the past 6 weeks that my days are starting to run together and my health is going to H*ll in a hurry. I have a 14 yr old whom I love dearly but she has been really pushing me to see how far she can and I am at my breaking point. I have to say it all started by her telling her sister that she wanted to die after her and I had an argument over a boy. I took this serious and she has been to the dr. is seeing a councelor and we have even…

Where the H*ll Did October Go?

 Anyone? Jiminy Christmas! And THAT is but a few weeks away!  Sorry to have been so negligent in my blogging duties, but it has been one thing, right after another! Even at work! I would have a lovely, detailed submission for you guys and be pulled away, only to come back to someone having logged me off!  And this slowpoke here at home is no help! (And apparently, keyboard clacking wakes the baby! Too bad! He can wait a minute! lol~ seriously, he's fine. Grouchy and teething and if he would…

Weigh In Day

I am starting today off with honesty.  I honestly did not want to weigh in; I am all to aware of my neglect of myself this last week.  I chose to indulge in whatever I wanted without working out.  I got up this morning and thought I can stay on this track and just continue like always or I can be honest with myself and make a change.  I choose honesty!  I am ready to make this change for a healthier me even if I stay the same or lose weight at .5 lbs per week.  I am going to be keeping a…

I feel a plan coming together!

So Baby is at 11 weeks tomorrow.  I am starting to change my mind from being super mom to super fit/super hot mom.  I am hoping to start really focussing on myself now that baby is starting to have more spaced out feeds...

I've got to get others out of my head and get myself together.  This week I want to:

1.  plan a good food menu the whole family will be able to eat with me for November

2.  go for a walk/excercise on the days the older kids are at preschool

3. …

Gorgeous Sunday

This will have to be fast since I put off work pretty much all weekend (no regrets!).

I must really be sleep deprived still because I slept through the 4am parade! Some of you may remember that crazy parade that passed by our house last year at this time. So loud and obnoxious! Well, I slept right through it this year! Unbelievable!

We went bike riding most of the day. The route was the long one they do once a month that is 32km (~20 miles) long. It was tough since there were 6…
