No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Well, my due date is quickly approaching (March 17th) and it is official that by this time next week I will be holding my little girl in my arms. I have scheduled an induction for Monday if she doesn't decide to come on her own before then. My son was 9.5 lbs on his due date, so I'm not really comfortable going past my due date with this little one. They aren't really expecting her to be as big, but they also told me he would be close to 8 pounds and he definitely wasn't. My hope is that she…Continue
Wow it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted - sorry about that folks!
I couldn’t possibly recap every single thing so here is a quick summary of what’s been going on in the past few weeks:
I have been doing well with this! I have walked to work almost every single day and plan to for the rest of this week since it’s not freezing out anymore! This is very exciting. I have also been sticking to running on the weekends when I can and hopefully…
I am finally exercising again. It has been almost six months since I have exercised. Hard to believe it has been that long, but I realized some how I just have to make it a priority in my busy life. Yesterday, I went for a walk at lunch with a co-worker and than last night attended a PiYo class. It kicked my butt and I am so sore today, but it felt so good to attend a class again.
I went clothes shopping this weekend with my daughter and let me just tell you, shopping for a bigger…Continue
It's the first of March and I am heading into another chapter on my journey. I set myself a goal to plan and make nearly all of our meals for the week. My plan was to spend some time Sunday morning making a menu. Then, from that, I could make my shopping list and head to the store. Well, I was woken up Sunday and had…Continue
After the rainy day 5K last weekend, I will certainly say that it was a great jump start to following the desire of my heart. Its not been easy to get back on track with my running, but I am. Just completed my third day in a row and while it was hard, I do not regret one minute of it. I am committed to being able to run an entire 5K the whole way through. No stopping, no walking ... just run. I've had to put the C25K back to week 4, but that's ok. I will keep it there until it gets…Continue
Got everything done that I wanted to yesterday except the 90 minute bike ride! Yeah!
Last Week's Reflection
Body Image: Haven't thought much about it TW. Maybe a good sign?
Fitness: Got 3 workouts in. 70 minutes of biking. 30 minutes + 6.5 miles of running. Still avoiding the pool...
Food: Averaged 2,458. Yowzah. 2,018 if I back out…Continue
Sometimes its not just the food that we need to get under control, its the other areas of our lives that cause us to STRESS. Where there is stress, there is temptation to turn to food.
A few weeks ago, I signed my family up to take the Dave Ramsey class at my church. My intentions initially were to get my soon to be newlyweds (my son and his fiance) into the class so that they could have a better start on their lives together than I did. However, only my husband agreed to attend…Continue
On Thanksgiving Day of 2014, my Mother was admitted to the hospital with excruciating abdominal pain. She was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and a portion of her colon was removed. My Father stated that the doctor had gotten everything and they felt fairly confident that everything was taken care of. Upon visiting my Mother in the hospital, she admitted to me that she had never even had a colonoscopy and did not understand why this would happen to her. I asked if she would consider…Continue
Wanted to pop in to set goals just for the day and hold myself accountable. So far I've worked out twice this week, but I want to get two more workouts in so I want to...
Also want to...
Sometimes our biggest fears can be what motivates us. What is your biggest fear about being unhealthy and overweight?
For me its trying avoid the onset of Type 2 Diabetes. It runs in my family. My mother had it due to being overweight and the effects on her internal organs eventually caused her death. My father also had it as a generational thing that ran in his family. (he was by no means overweight). My brother was diagnosed when he was about 45 - he is also extremely…Continue
Up from last week .4 pound. Disappointed to say the least but it will motivate me to stick to it this week.
I really was feeling positive until I saw the scale. Even a .4 gain makes me feel like a failure
Hitting the 21 Day Fix every day!!
I did snack more this week at work. Those nibbles & tastes do add up to a weight gain for a super slow loser like…
I found this on Yahoo. I am going to try it. I have heard sleep can change things. Tell me what you think.
What eating plan are you guys following? I follow Weight Watchers. So any of you have some easy suggestions for meals? I am really having a hard time coming up with things to eat
Numbers. Tomorrow is weigh in day. I never look forward to that. But even if it isn't good, it will make me shape up. I have been having a few extra snacks this week as I was truly hungry. I would just like to see my numbers go double in the weight loss game. So far it is 8.2 pounds & my goal is to hit 10 pounds by April. I would love to see my pant size go from the current double digit to a single digit. Although I have lost…Continue
Still here. Still pregnant. I'm pretty much done. Done with the cold weather, done with pregnancy--ready to move on to something new. Haha. Not much longer on the pregnancy front and hopefully warming up soon too. I'm due in less than 2 weeks and may end up being induced before then because my son was so big.
As far as working out, unfortunately the Y I go to follows the school's lead for bad weather. If the school district closes, they cancel class. This has happened a lot this week.…Continue
So I have been a member of "Blog to Lose" for several years. I haven't been on for a couple of years, but I am in need of some serious support. I am going through a funk that I just can't shake and know that I need to before I spiral completely out of control. In July 2008, I had lost 70 lbs and reached my Weight Watcher lifetime goal. I have never felt so good in my life. I think I was the healthiest I had every been. Fast forward 6 years, holy cow I can't believe it has been that long, I…Continue
