Good weather, good exercise

Yesterday the weather was perfect so we decided to go for a run. Not sure how far we would go, we ended up doing 6 miles. Today hit 80, a temp not seen since last year & to give my feet a break, out came the bikes. After work I hit the bike trail & got in my first ride of the season. Did 15 miles. It felt great. Tomorrow the weather will be much cooler. 60 I think. As long as it doesn't rain, I plan on getting in a run. Exercise is so good for my mental health. I do suffer from anxiety… Continue

Im still alive..

Okay... Last week I completely lost my drive and determination. You know what it had to do with?? The SCALE and my husband being the fucking douchebag that he strives to be!  I didnt share this on my MFP because idk I dont feel comfortable chatting about it but the reason why I lost my motivation is this...

  Remember how ELATED I was that I hit 169??? It happened to be on the spring scale that I had before my digital... the digital was giving me wrong numbers like 177 id get off and…

My weekly update

5lb weight loss this week which i can't quite believe. All I did was try not to starve, try not to eat too much and eat clean. I say 'All I did...' but these things are tough for me as I naturally self sabotage. Progress is met with countering measures.(based in fear, I think) So I'll be very pleased if I can continue my 'All I did's...' this week and into the next.

No BInge Week

This week wasn't as focused as last week but at least I didn't binge.  I haven't weigh this morning, but I think I managed to maintain --- it was a busy busy week. #2 son had three tennis matches this week that kept us on the road - so no time to cook and no time to get a run or a walk in.  I did go on two 3 mile walks with my friend, but didn't get to run.

Last Sunday of course, was wine tasting day with my oldest child and some of his college mates.  Turns out the boys backed out…

Weekly Update 4/16

Weight - Down 0.4 pounds. Hey it's a loss. Every loss counts!

Exercise - I ran 19 miles this week. 2 runs were outside! It is finally warming up.

Food - 80/20. Still need to knock off the just one handful snacks. Damn salty snacks!

Mood - A few anxiety days with a taste do depression, but working on being more mindful. Must quiet that judgmental girl. You know the one. Tells you you're not worthy. You can't do this.

Here is to a better week. Got to… Continue

I'm Back!

Well, it was a very brief stay below my pre-pregnancy weight (one day, in fact) before I left for my vacation at an all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic where I gained a whopping 6.8 pounds while I was there. Haha. Honestly, I'm not worried about it. I know that not all of that was a "true gain" and I know what to do to get the weight off and it will come back off eventually. Not to mention that it's not every day that you get to eat and drink all you want at an…

I have been working on a weekly speed run. It is done on my treadmill. It totals out to 4+ miles. It warms up then, it is 2 minutes at 7.0 speed then drops to 4.5 speed for one minute & it goes on like that for the entire run. It is done at various inclines ranging from 0% to 3 % grade. Until tonight, I have had to either stop the mill for a few minutes & resume or drop the speed. Well today was the first time I made it through the entire run! It is so true that sense of accomplishment… Continue

Away awhile let me explain

So, on the diet bandwagon a team mate and I decided to stop drinking for April to wrap up our diet challenge.  This has been two fold for me.  I think forgetting about the alcohol calories is a great thing. Also, after drinking I tend to loosen up and invade the kitchen looking for snacky things to munch on with my beverage.  

In the end I didn't realize how many times I was reaching for a glass of alcoholic beverage so I have also looked at abstinence in a different way.  While out…

Disciplined Week

I am pleased with myself this past week as I found control and discipline and managed to rid myself of 3 of the 5#s that I have been playing with for the past two or three months.  So that is a start in the right direction.

My food was focused ... I had one day (Fri) where I had too many carbs but over all it was even a good day.  I've just been trying to have a grain either at breakfast or lunch ... not all three meals which is what happened.  But in all it was nothing to cry over…

Brain Dump ---

I am so glad tomorrow's Friday. It has been a long week. I have not had the best food week this week. I am really nervous for weekly weigh in this week. I have a feeling it's a gain. I have gone over my calories the last few days. Becoming hungry can kill the strongest desire to stay on track. At least I got in a 5 mile run. I thought the extra workout may help balance the the extra calories.

I'm feeling really sad again like I did all day. Felt momentarily better after seeing Thomas. He says I am to concentrate on being healthy and creating my life to bring that about. I am to start by writing down what my ideal healthy lifestyle looks like .He says he is not interested in whether I lose weight or not. Interesting what je said about the Wise Mind being a combo of logical mind and emotional mind. I had thought I was just aiming to be in logical mind. Maybe this mistake speaks to…

Gigantic bras and knickers!

I'm so done struggling into giant bras and knickers. They look like the horses outside could wear them. Must do something. Taking my photo and facing up to what I look like was a major step forward but yek!  I have looked slim and good before so not impossible but I'm struggling with moods and not eating to feel better and struggling with exercise because of my weight on my knee and hip! All in all a yuk day but my eating has been calm and measured. Off to therapist this evening to discuss…

I did it!

Omg girls I hit my goal. 169 today. Just a week late! Haha. I figured out that my digital scale was broke today! Got on the spring scale that I had for a spare 169! I took a pic to show you but I can figure out how to post it from my phone!

What Day is It?

Its hump day!!!!  And it was a good one.

Another good food day; and I stayed on task.  Got water in - but I should have done better.  All foods are logged and got in a 2.4 mile run.

After work my youngest had a tennis match.  His singles didn't go so well and afterwards he was a butt to me ... honestly in that moment I was over the Momma Thing.  My feelings were so hurt and I'm tired of the snotty teen stuff.  So I came home and went for my run and then did some stuff around…

Made it thru Tuesday!

The Tar Heels lost last night in an very exciting game.  I heard it was great.....I went to bed at the half.

I've made it through Tuesday and day #2.  Completely on track and motivated.

Food has been spot on.  Everything is logged.  I actually even forgot to eat my afternoon snack today.  I'll save it for tomorrow and I pushed more water today.

Went for a walk today with my friend who had knee surgery we did 2.5 miles today.  During our walk I asked her to hold me…

Crushed it Today

I think I crushed Monday ladies.  Well -- crushed it for me anyway.

I did really good with my nourishment and I pushed myself into running after work.  It was a gorgeous day - reached 72 with a great breeze.  One thing I realized that as the weather gets warmer I need to make sure that I push my water before the run; and I prefer the colder weather to run in.  I put down 2.33 miles.  I was quite slow today.  But I really think that had a lot to do with lack of water and the warmer…

Happy Monday ladies

Beginning of a new week, beginning of a new month! Eating has been great so far today. Hopefully I'll be able to stick to low calories and massive workouts all week. I'm ready to get into the 60's! I was up on Sunday, 175. Idk I'm not gonna get all bent outta shape I need to learn and know that the scale fluctuates....instead of my always fluctuating between 178 180 now I'm fluctuating between 173 175 guess that means I'm losing that's what counts sometimes those pounds drop and never come… Continue
