No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Ive been soooo sleepy since Thanksgiving. I know about the turkey myths...or not myths.. whatever. I've came to the conclusion that its really not the turkey.. its the overdose of CARBS. They just stick in you and wont move. It makes me feel all full and sleepy. Yesterday I freakin slept for FOUR hours in the afternoon! lol I managed to wake up and do my Turbofire. Did the 60 minute session. I was going to lift ...ended up passin out before that happened. Sigh.
I worked out to…Continue
We made it back safe and sound. Back to the quiet, calm house with our family of three. A far cry from the 9-12 people we have been with for the past week. We had such a great trip, but it was hectic. I think I did more dishes, laundry, and cooking in that one week than I typically do in a month. I'm so glad I was able to be there while my Rockstar sister had her 4th baby. He's precious.…Continue
I feel like whenever I am doing well I sabotage myself. From thanksgiving on I ate like an idiot. Yesterday I had pie for breakfast and fast food twice. I normally try to avoid fast food like the plague because its my weakness. I normally pack a snack and all that but I feel like since thanksgiving I just feel out of control, fell off the wagon. I have a 10 mile run to do today. I will do it but I don't want to. I hope this all does not show up to punish me too horribly on the scale I really…Continue
I hope everyone here was good on Tgiving!!!! :)
Scott has already played that song once and I'm sure it will be played at least 5 times today! So I'm ready for today. I'm feeling pretty good about my self control! I just had my daily power breakfast (which I eat everyday) oats, oat bran, berries flax & cinnamon, and 4 egg whites plus 1 whole egg. I'm gonna workout with the parade on. My daughter Olivia's friends from her jump rope team will be preforming in Macy's parade today between 10:45-11 :) LMK if you see them, they are…Continue
Today's the big day. But it's not what you might think. Today is BABY day in our family. My sister was scheduled to head into the hospital at 5am to be induced with her 4th child. The whole family is in town and just waiting for updates throughout the day. This means we are having our big thanksgiving meal tomorrow. Better in my book because we head back home on Saturday, so less time to be munching on all the leftovers. I hope everyone has a great day and enjoys all the many things are…Continue
AngieY mentioned only doing one plate of food. I'm up for that and actually won't have a choice in the matter. Since most of my family has either passed on or live too far away and we are not traveling until Christmas; my husband and I decided that we are going to our second annual dinner at Cracker Barrel. Our oldest will be having dinner with his fiancé's family so ... I'm not cooking for three people.
Last year we followed our dinner up with some mid-night "Red Neck Shopping"…Continue
Well Turkey day is almost upon us! Im not really going to worry about what Im eating. Im not going to count calories. I am going to keep it down to one plate one trip. No desserts. One bite of pumpkin pie will be all I need. That way I dont feel like I missed out and I dont have the shame of eating a 600 calorie piece of pie! ;) Im also going to skip the rolls. Carbs are not my friend and Im already going to be going sort of overboard with the carbs. I know Ill have potatoes with the…Continue
This winter cold has zapped my energy and stamina after 2 weeks of sickness with no end in sight I returned to working out and I feel so WEAK. I hate it but time to get back into the swing of things also my motivation is dropping the longer I don't work out. The good news is I have still been losing even with not working out.
It's been a long, long time since I've posted anything here. I feel like I have good reasons for doing this. They are reasons I'd rather not get into here but know that I think of all of you (especially the ones who I know really well) from time to time and hope that your weight loss journey is going well. I want to come on and support but my life has been a bit out of whack lately.
On the food and fitness front, I was trucking along and doing well up until about a month ago. Not…Continue
I did lose this week, back down 2 lbs, which is where I was three weeks ago, but it is a loss this time instead of a gain and I will take it!! I am surprised it was two pounds since I did have a huge Thanksgiving dinner party on Saturday and leftovers on Sunday. I was able to fit in 5 workouts last week, so I know that helped a lot, as well as being conscientious with my food choices with all the other meals. I am not near as worried about the actual day of Thanksgiving at my Mom’s house, I…Continue
We all know exercise is important for our overall health and well-being. I aim to move every day and achieve that goal most days as long as I'm feeling well. With the holidays coming and the opportunities to overeat facing me, I'm more determined than ever to make sure I get in my daily dose of exercise. There is a good article in today's NYTs about just this and a recent study showed: ?Of more pressing interest, though, is the study’s practical message that “if you are facing a period of…Continue
Today was WI I'm down a 1/2 lb! I don't feel like I deserve that half lb. this week! I noticed that some of the math on my page wrong! So I used my calculator and fixed all the errors. I'm better of by 1 lb :)
I expressed last week how I was wavering and struggling to determine if it was because I was becoming less "obsessed" and more balanced with losing weight and getting into shape, or if I was using it as an excuse for beginning to…Continue
Just a quick post... I stepped on the scale yesterday at gym and finally reached my 2nd weight loss goal! I am so happy and it just gives me encouragement that what I'm doing is still working. Even though I have my little cheats every week, all the fitness and healthy eating the rest of the time is slowly adding up bit by bit. I now have one final goal to reach, and with the festive season coming up I have more motivation than ever to stick to my guns!
I also just want to say…Continue
Hey BTLers! I hope everyone is doing great and keepin up with their workout goals! I sort of fell off the planet this past month. I had to get a job for a lil bit. Sigh long story. Anyway. It totally SUCKED getting that job because it took time away from being able to focus on my workouts and diet. I adjusted ...right before I quit. Hahaha Go figure. Anyway... I dont need that job anymore and Im happy I dont have to work it now! I jumped up 12 lbs during the months of Oct/Nov. Got on the…Continue
Long but satisfying day! Morning started at 6am with a great stretch class. Breakfast was a delicious chicken egg scramble with toast and a pat of butter - just 291 calories!
We then departed on our fans for the 1st hike of the week. One hour out and then…Continue
So far, so good on my trip home. Granted, it's only been a couple days and half of the kids still had school today, but so far I'd call it a success. Haha. Foodwise has been interesting. My brother in law has been cooking and he is not known for his "light" meals. I'm talking about potato soup with heavy cream and 2 sticks of butter. Wowza. Thankfully, my mom does WW too, so she has been making some lighter options, so at least there are choices. Still hard to resist the yummy, fat-filled…Continue
Today was mostly travel and settling in. Once I checked in, I had a bit of time to unpack and then I headed over for my body assessment. Weight and inches came in around where I thought they would given how slack I’ve been the past few months (read more)
I don't know if anyone out there is doing CrossFit but I read an interesting article the other day about it. "CrossFit's Dirty Little Secret" and I guess this is also a general workout safety tip and information we should all know about Rhabdomyolysis. Directly from the article,
"Rhabdomyolysis, apart from being a subtly pleasant and melodic sounding word, is an uncool, serious and potentially fatal condition resulting from the catastrophic…
