October Report

October and I went round and round the same three #s.  I wish I could say that I did really well this month, but the truth is I didn't.  Its so true when ppl say when you work your program, your program will work for you.  My tracking was not consistent, I didn't menu plan like I had been and I wasn't intentional.  Well I was intentional --- intentionally disobedient.  LOL

To find the silver lining - there is a bright side.  I…

Wheat

Wheat. I must admit I am in love with it. I did not realize just how much and how it controls me.  I am suspecting that it could have something to do with my 3 year plateau so I am cutting it out.  I also cut out the 1/2&1/2 in my coffee the same day. (yesterday)  

I was doing great all day till I found 2 home made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies in the freezer. Went over calorie goal by about 300 calories which is not terrible.  I can do better. I had a bad feeling about this. The…

T Equals Minus Ten Weeks And Counting

Another two weeks have passed with me putting in little (NO) effort to addressing this weight.  I think about it all the time every day but I just never put anything in place to help my cause.  I am feeling overwhelmed.  I think I am going to focus on trying to lose 25 pounds by the end of the year.  That is realistic. That is  achievable.  That will make a difference.

Running Raggedy

I haven't posted in awhile, but I have been around here and there, reading and commenting on others' posts. Just trying to stay in, or near, the game instead of falling way off as I have before. 

Right now I have no goals and have not made progress, but I am exercising. Some days I manage to eat well, but I have not yet attained consistency.Same old story. 

One good thing I've done is try to eliminate thinking about what to eat, which is when I get into trouble.…

I completed #2

I completed my 2nd 5k Sunday. I beat my time by almost 5 minutes! It was tough. The route had a big hill at the end & I was so close to walking part of it, but I just did not give in. When I crossed the finish line, I really thought my time was not as good as the race I did the end of May but when they posted the times, I was so surprised. I guess all those runs did since the first race paid off. My time? 27 minutes 24 seconds or 8:50/M. This really boosted my morale & I really needed… Continue

When you Work, It works

Funny thing. When you put in work (whatever "program" you decide to follow), it works. Since having the baby (7 months ago! Where does the time go? Isn't she just precious?) ...

I have just been floating. Neither here, nor there. This week I committed to…

Feeding pain

I think I am finally starting to realize that part of the problem is I am unhappy in my marriage. The question is always when to try harder and when to walk away.  I think without the stress of my husband maybe this weight would be gone. Maybe the fat is just hiding my unhappiness. Our kids are young and I homeschool so I probably cant divorce right now. But I wish I could. If I could master homeschooling as a single parent I would divorce right now today. I feel like I am going to be…

Making Me Time

I have been getting my walks in at least 5 days a week. With 3 kids it's hard some days. I live in the country and its so dark early now. When my kids go to bed around 8 or 9 that's when I drive in to town and walk 3-5 miles. Sometimes I don't get home til 10 depending on when I go but if I want my me time I want to do it so I'm not taking time away from them.

This week I was down 1.4 so now to a total loss of 35 lbs. my big goal is to be under 200 by new year!!

Got to get back on Track!

I have lost my motivation. I am managing to run every day at least one mile but not to track my food or exercise or do any other exercise or get up early or get my house even to 80% clean. WTF is wrong with me? Is this what happens when your rearing 40 you fall apart?

On the flip side I have lost 5lbs???

I need to find a way to fit it all in again. I need to find my way again. I feel lost and I feel lazy. 

Today is day 290 of my running streak.…

Renewed Motivation/Inspiration

I've just been blah. You probably know that from my lack of posting. Not doing bad, just not really getting anywhere. I feel like it is just so much harder this time. Yet, I can't honestly say that I'm trying hard, just whining that it is hard. Haha. The receptionist for my Weight Watchers meeting just came back this week from maternity leave. She looks amazing! She had her baby 3 months ago and I honestly think she looks better than she did before she was pregnant. At first I was a little…

working hard!!

I continue to suprise myself. I have lost this same 30 lbs, I think this is my 4th time. I truly hope it's staying off forever this time. Mid week I was stressing some cause after my period scale was not moving. So I was determined to get it off.

walked 3-5 miles 4 days this week, Piyo once and 15 flights of stairs on friday. weekends I don't do as much but walked 2 miles saturday and 3 mile color run today.  and Thursday and Friday super stricted with my eating. Happy to say I worked…

Bump in the Road

I've been doing really well for several weeks....and then I hit a bump in my road and fell off plan for a couple of days.  I caved in to temptations.  I could kick myself.  Need to pull myself together today and get back to my focus.  I've made too much progress in the last 6 weeks to go backwards now.

This morning I am committed to making a conscience effort to not let the past two days ruin everything.  I will not give up, I will not give in.  I will not throw the baby out with the…

Weekly Update

Exercise this week!

Just finished my 4th workout of the week! Proud of that.
I read an article today on women's health and it talked about how you need to do the right kind of exercise for your goal. That struck me as something I need to purposefully do. If you want to lose weight you need to do 30 minutes of a body weight circuit 3 times a week. I've got to think about my workout schedule and purposefully plan the right kind of exercise.

12 Weeks Away

That is right my friends.  The end of this year is 12 weeks away.  My new journal also covers a 12 week period.  Coincidence?  I think not!  New goal number one...  Journal something (anything) every day.  I am not going to commit to writing down everything I eat or everything I feel because we all know how that goes.  Basically, I will do good for a week or two, miss a few days in a row, and throw away my journal.  That isn't helpful.  But I know I can commit to writing something each day…

Thoughts on Carbs???

Do u really watch your Carb in take and how much do u eat when losing. I'm wanting to try to see if it will improve weightloss. I'm doing good but think need to tweak things to get results I want.
I don't really eat potatoes but I do like toast and sandwiches, tortillas. Those are my down falls.
Or do I try gluten free breads???
