I need a Seatbelt for my Wagon...

I’m sure a lot of people fall off the wagon…and I’m sure that most of us get right back on…

That was my day yesterday…Wednesday’s have always been a reward day…It’s weigh in day for my BLC group on Sparkpeople…so I have always taken it as a day to boost my carbs for a meal or 2 in the morning. Sometimes a few chips or something if that’s what I’m craving…It’s a day that helps me stay strong for the rest of the week…

Woke up…weighed in…down .2

Story of how…

RAA - Wednesday, October 30th - Speed Eating (Again)

Reflect, Assess, Adjust

Where did I do some good or make some progress today?

My friend and I walked to our staff meeting which is in another building about a mile away from our location.  This really boosted my Fitbit step count. My water intake was up today too.  Yay!

Where did I let myself or others…

I hurt in places I didn't know I could hurt. Haha. Hamstrings, glutes, abs, chest, shoulders, back. Yowza. That must have been an intense workout yesterday. Honestly, it didn't feel THAT hard while I was doing it, but I am definitely feeling it today. I have so much respect for my trainer that I have been working with for almost a year now. He is constantly changing things up--keeping things interesting and keeping our bodies guessing. He does a great job pushing us to do more, while…

I seriously

Want to start writing out what I eat daily, in a notebook, and every week posting how I'm doing, what I'm eating and then maybe you guys can show me what I am doing wrong.

I think my main problems are 1.eating late at night when I don't get a chance to eat dinner at work (which is a lot) and 2. midnight eating, random boredom snacking, or depression eating.

If I can find something that can replace eating when I am depressed or bored that would work too. Maybe even buying mints…

WIW 10.30.13

I am down 3.2 lbs this week!  I knew I felt lighter, and I knew last weeks weigh-in had water weight, but wow!  Measurements are still wacky, mostly the same, but almost an inch less in my hips, which is the largest number and where I carry a lot of my adipose. (Sounds so much better than fat) I finally feel like my body is on board with the concept of it is time to lose weight now!  I have almost always started my weight loss endeavors in the spring.  It is the time of year I am most…

Daily motivation

There is a really hot man who is really nice who runs 6 miles on the same path as me on many of the same days. I used to always run on this path. I often switch it up these days and go all over town but it makes me happy to return there and see his smiling face and say hello. When I first got back into running after I had my last child 60% of the reason I got up at 4am 3X per week  to run by 5am was to see that man. I have no idea what his name is but he was my motivation. He always…

Today I hit a milestone! 30 pounds GONE!

I was up a week ago, then I was up even more this Monday when I checked in but, now I'm pretty certain it was just water weight from tom.  Today I was prepared to see a similar up number.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that I have reached a milestone, a goal that at one point seemed so far away!  I've lost 30 pounds and I'm 132 today!  I'm merely 3 pounds away from the 120's!  No worries ladies I'm only 5' 2.5" and hoping to find a comfy spot in the 120's.  

I struggled again over…

I Thought About Disappearing

For years I have blogged here off and on.  At times I have had great success in my weight loss journey and I blogged all the time about how wonderful I was doing.  At times I have had great struggles in my weight loss journey and I disappear because I feel like no one here needs to hear how unsuccessful I am.  That's kind of where I am today.  I know I am struggling.  I know a lot of my struggles are related to my health and medication but some of the weight gain is also related to…

RAA - Tuesday, October 29th - Actually Feeling Hungry

Reflect, Assess, Adjust

Where did I do some good or make some progress today?

Yesterday morning I was full of energy.  My energy level dropped significantly later in the morning.  I was so sleepy.  I kept on target with activity, tracking and calories.

Where did I let myself or others down?

Awesome Sauce - Pour It On Your Day!

Awesome is one of my favorite words.  When I am feeling particularly giddy, I may spell it out as a cheer with clapping and everything.  I am going to keep a bottle around, in my thoughts, and pour it on any day that I think needs a "flavor boost" of awesomeness.  

Use that song Pour Some Sugar On Me.....Pour Some Awesome Sauce On Me.  Works for me!  And much healthier, lol.  Have an awesome day!…

Reflect, Assess, Adjust

Where did I do some good or make some progress today?

The "mostly power foods" plan is working.  Down 3 pounds at WW today.  Woo Hoo! Still on track with activity.  I added assisted squats as an alternative to the knee lifts to keep things interesting.  I want to get home early enough tomorrow to ride my bike.  …

Weekly Check-In

It's Monday night--that means Weight Watchers night for me. I love that this is a standing event in my house and that my husband is always willing to come home from work and keep up with the little guy so I can go. It's not even an question anymore. It is just what happens on Monday nights. I've decided that I need to continue to weigh in every week even though technically I just have to weigh in once a month. I know with the holidays quickly approaching that it would be all too tempting to…

Painful Knees

I was doing so well for several years and then the ugliness of my knees started up.  I have arthritis in both of my knees and it's knock me on my tush.  I won't say I was active, but I did go to the gym and was always out shopping for one thing or another, so I was moving.

I've had surgery on one knee, scraping of arthritis and I swore I wouldn't do it again.  I had an awful time healing and then my other knee decided to flare up.  So now, between both my knees I've pretty…

I survived 39.1 Miles

I cried when I crossed the finish line!

Sorry I haven't blogged sooner.  But the Internet connection for the hotel was $16.95 a day and I decided to hold off.  I would have posted last night, but I was exhausted and stiff and just passed out.

The Avon Walk - What an amazing experience.  I am still in…

Weekend Reflections 10.28.13

It was a successful weekend. The ACS walk went well, there were a lot of people there, and it was a new route this year. It took us an hour and 21 min to get from the starting area and walk the 5k. I am not sure exactly how long it took for us to actually get to the starting line – at least 15 minutes I would guess, so I think it took us just over an hour to do the 5k. This walk brings out lots of families and some pets and I developed a blister on the bottom of my ‘ring’ toe so we were a…

So this past weekend I found myself deep inside the candy bowl.  Yes, DEEP inside the Halloween candy bowl.  I stepped on the scale this morning and was up almost 3 pounds.  This sucks ass, and I have no one to blame but myself.  I have gone WEEKS with halloween candy in our fridge and not once touched it.  I take my daughter to two halloween events and stuff my face.  Ugh...  

It is a new day and I am hopping back on...

Today Feels Good

I promised myself that when I began this journey again I was going to be completely honest about my weight and the reasons behind my eating.  I know that some of the problem is that my asthma is uncontrolled right now.  That means I am very sedentary and the steroids I am on are contributing to my weight gain.  But eating out three times a day is not helping.  And that's a fact!  I have found myself turning to take out to eat away my emotions.  To the point that my body physically hurts.  I…

On track with activity and calories for the day and for the week.  I did some cooking and prep for next week so I can remain on target.

Week 10 Day 3 and 4.

Hey Hey Hey!

I had a good and very busy rest of the week! 

I didn't go to boot camp Wednesday - needed a a day off - Wednesdays seem to be the longest day for me at work.  Just exhausted.  Anywho - I went to planet fitness Thursday before boot camp and even though it took me 28 minutes to run - I ran the full 2 miles!!! Then I went to boot camp after wards - holy crap we did a lot of arms. 

Friday I had CPR after work - that is a workout in itself - holy cow! …
