Trekking along

I'm going to try posting at least once per week! 

I walked twice last week, and meant to do the same, was actually excited to do the same this week. But life got in the way and I didn't plan around it sufficiently. I had three evening events this week, and my allotted walk time is after work. I should have made the most of the two evenings I had free, but I didn't. Fail to plan is a plan to fail. 

I did, however, get up in the morning TWICE and go for a short…

I'm drowning in this software roll out ladies....and the rolls around my waist that the stress is bringing on.  It is ridiculous!

I got 9 schools up and running now.  And have finally put together a very aggressive plan to get the other 25 completed by June 3rd.   School ends on June 9th.

On the bright side ... while my eating for lack of better words ... SUCKS.  I have been putting down some miles this week after working very long hours.  I was suppose to run/walk with my…

Monster May... BEAST TIME

    I fell off the face of BTL for a bit, sorry ladies stress in life and guilt kept me away.. I was doing so well up until the last week of April then I just started bingeing and not working out for like 5 days straight... right before May 1st... what is WRONG with me???!  Anywayyyyy I stepped up to the plate and took it like a big girl on May 1st... 172 lbs. That is not under 165 let me just let that be noted. -_- I was so pissed at myself. I mean I cant blame anyone else I know the steps…

6 days later

So, my husband and I started this health regiment program to become more healthy. He is 6' and 185 lbs and I am 5.5' and 135 lbs. I would like to be my dream weight of 120 by August which is when our reception is scheduled.
So far it's been a week of super conscious eating and calorie counting as well as working out, and I have gone up to 140 lbs. Extremely disappointing! My husband lost 3lbs.

I Don't Got This...

I am feeling very out of control these days.  As you all know, there are a lot of different dynamics in my life and they are all quite dis-regulated at this time.  (ONE of those dynamics is my health/weight ~ but that's just the tip of the ice burg.)


In the past I have felt like I could pull myself together enough to deal with all that was going on but lately I am feeling like I just can't get out of my own way to accomplish anything.

Been away for so long . . . . but need to find someplace for me.

My health is not at its best, and now I am needing to have my gallbladder out. Haven't scheduled surgery yet but maybe at the end of the month or beginning of next month.

I also have been looking to have WLS the gastric sleeve. I've completed the 6 months of group/classes, psych evaluation, and the labs, but I have yet to loss the 30 (now 46) pounds required. It's just that I have had a lot of stress and chaotic…

Lost Cause

Am I ever going to lose this weight???

I woke up to rain & thought today was going to be wet all day & I would have to do my work out in the basement. Well I got lucky. The sun came out & I was able to get in my bike ride after work. It did end up raining tonight, but not until I got home. I have been keeping the food in check. I still struggle. I love carbs. I really do not miss bread, but I love crackers, pretzels & those yummy protein bars. Each day I just make the best effort I can to eat the most wholesome food… Continue

Here we go again!!

Ok so I started full steam ahead and I swear I am caught in this cycle now where I can make it four days now before I start to fall apart. So after the last few days of complete give up and pity partying. Here I am again. Trying to get some traction. It's so amazing to me how slippery this whole process is in the beginning. I am just going to dust the cookie crumbs off and keep going on my goal. Feels good to just write this out actually it's like releasing some of the guilt and shame about it.… Continue

Weekly update 5/5/15

Happy Cinco de Mayo. Still looking for that motivation but still lost 1.7 lbs so that's encouraging. I feel like if I could find the motivation to workout more then I could really make progress.

Week in Review--Wrong Direction

Well, the scale moved in the wrong direction this week. Up 0.4 pounds. I know, not much...but it is frustrating to see it moving the wrong direction when you are trying hard with your food choices and starting back at the gym after 6 weeks off. It just feels like it shouldn't happen that way. Looking back at this past week, I honestly couldn't tell you why the scale is up. I made good choices and i moved more. Sure, it wasn't a perfect week, but it never is. With with the amount I…

Positive Focus

It was quite the week and now the weekend is almost over.

Really proud of how the software roll out went.  Got seven school cafeterias up and running on the new Point o Sale almost seamlessly.  I learned a lot - most importantly - do not EVER EVER roll out to an elementary school on ice cream day.  HaHa.  We got two high schools, one middle school and four elementary up and running.  Now I just need to schedule and plan the other 28.  My goal is to get it done by June 9th.  This way I…

Last Two Week's Reflection

Body Image: Pretty good. It's amazing what clothes that fit will you do to your self image. Glad I did that. I hate my arms a lot lately, but I'm SO excited to start lifting again! It's the first thing I let go in a weekly workout plan when I'm training for a major race. No more major races in sight for me so back to lifting I go!

Fitness: Completed…

3rd Half Ironman Done!

I finished my 3rd half ironman triathlon last Sunday!

  • Location: Galveston, TX.
  • Weather: Beautiful...a little muggy and rainy but manageable. 
  • Morning Of: I got my period. That sucked and had me in a negative head space to start the race. 
  • The Swim: my first non-wetsuit legal swim. Strike #2 that freaked me out, but I got through just fine! First salt water swim too. SO, so salty! I had…

Weekly Review 5-3

Weight - zero loss. Down 10 since day 1

Mood - tired, this cold is killing me. I can not wait for it to break. I was down since my weight loss isn't.

Food - when I am sick, i don't make the best choices. I still ate a leafy green each day, but I got a bad sugar craving & ate some not so healthy things.

Exercise - did my 5k training 3 days this week & rode my bike 2 times. One day it rained so I did my cardio fix DVD.

The weight loss is… Continue

It's Not Just About Weight

When I started back in Oct 2011 my main goal was to be healthier.  Of course I knew that being obese (sheesh!) was bad for my health and so was not moving and so was not eating the right foods.   I decided to focus first on choosing healthy foods most of the time. I knew what that was and gradually made the changes.  Started moving every day.

I really think it was the mind shift away from going on a diet to lose x pounds that made the key difference this time.

Just saw…

Getting started

My starting weight was 348.2. That was about a month ago. I am currently at 329.3. My goal is 150. I see the scale. It says I'm losing weight but yet I don't feel like I have. I struggle everyday to get out and be active which I feel partially has to do with working overnights. My boyfriend helps but I just wish I had the motivation all the time.

Weight Loss Journey: Goodbye April

I have been a little lax on my blogging this week.  Nothing too exciting is happening.  I am just working more and going to the gym every week day.  I have been working on the Annual All High School Car Show that is May 9th.  Me, Roger and about 5 other people put it on.  It's a lot of…

I feel a reawakening of that healthy lifestyle urge coming on. Slowly! But surely. 

I took my first walk home after a THREE YEAR break- whoa, I really fell off the cliff on that one! I walked 25 minutes. I didn't have it in me to do the whole 50 minute walk, so I caught the bus to a half way point and walked the rest. I just wanted to break the ice. 

Today I brought my change of clothes and headphones- neither of which I had on me on Monday, and am prepared to…
