No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Honestly it was an okay week nothing fantastic. It's been crazy busy at work and I have literally been running my but off.
Weight- Down 4.5 lb
Food- I did okay this week but it could have definitely been better and knowing that I should be making better choices makes me feel guilty after I make a poor choice. I also need to be better about documenting in mfp.
Exercise- I was able to get a 1.5 mile walk in today and want to start some gardening and possibly get a bike…Continue
So last week I posted about the frustrations of the scale so this morning I stepped on to the scale that I have been using for over a year and it said I was one weight which I really questioned so I stepped on my husbands withings smart scale and it was like a 6 lb difference. So I have decided to just continue with the withings scale as that seems to be more accurate than the one that I was using.
As for the rest of the week eating okay exercise only if you count running around and…Continue
So I stepped on the scale on Sunday it said I was up like 7 lbs and then stepped on it again this morning and it was down 4 lbs from Sunday. It's so frustrating being so attached to that thing and so dependent on what its going to say! Last week I ate poorly and exercised to little and Mother Nature is not helping matters. Like Erica said bring on spring!!
Honestly it was an okay week nothing fantastic. I think it would have been better had we not gotten 4 inches of snow and kept the 60 degree temps! Oh well at least there's only 2 weeks left until daylight savings.
Weight- Down 0.6 lb
Food- I did okay this week but it could have definitely been better however I also realize it could have also been worse.
Exercise- Was same as with the food it could've been better but could've been worse.
Mood- Tired and honestly I…Continue
Things have been going well this week. Enjoying a relaxing weekend off. Back around Christmas time I set a short term goal that I wanted to lose 8 lbs by my birthday and I'll be honest I really didn't think that it would happen and now my birthday is in 10 days and I am less than 2 lbs away from that goal and it feels amazing. The 40-50 degree weather we've been having here in Northwest Iowa(in February) doesn't hurt either ;)
I hope that everyone is having a great…Continue
So its been a while and a lot has happened since I was last here. We took a couple trips last year which one included me climbing to the top of a MOUNTAIN!!!! Also got married in October. My weight loss has been going better as of late. My best friend and I are working on it together. Although that proves its own…Continue
So there is a 5K in a nearby town on June 10th. I have decided to start training myself for it. I haven't ran since I was in high school.
Yesterday was the first day of training and afterwards I didn't feel to bad other than the fact that my lungs were on fire! Today I don't hurt as much as I thought I would but my hips are definitely feeling it.
I have heard that you need at least 8 weeks to train for a 5K when your just starting out. I have 6... Am I crazy to…Continue
So I haven't been on here in like 7 months but now I'm back:)
A lot has changed since I last posted anything. I am now engaged we are getting married in October. This is motivating me and stressing me out all at the same time. I am motivated because I want to be healthier and mostly because of ALL those pictures! However it is also stressing me out because I realize how hard it is and and how far I have to go yet. I have been doing Profile by Sanford since December and…Continue
Where to begin... This last week has been interesting. I read a book called The Night Shift Diet and thought I'd like to try that but before I even got started I realized that I wasn't going to be able to go low carb. So I nixed that idea but the writer still had some very good points like document everything food, exercise, water, mood, and how much sleep you got. I started out this journey by documenting but it quickly stopped and it was only what I ate and what exercising I did. So I've…Continue
Moving in the right direction with a .4 loss.
Activity-Between my sleeping schedule being completely out of whack(I HATE OVERNIGHTS) and mother nature thinking this last week would be a good week to let the clouds open up.. getting out and walking was practically non-existent gotta love the Midwest weather.
Food-Mostly good choices.
Water- I started off good but quickly realized that drinking 166 oz. everyday was completely ridiculous so I decided…Continue
Last week was kind of a blah week and this week hasn't started off the greatest. I made okay okay choices and between work sleep and the weather I didn't really get out and walk anywhere near as much as I would have liked but I still had a 0.4 loss and as we all know a loss is still a loss. I hope y'all have a good rest of your week.
So I would definitely say that this week was a success.
Food- I made mostly good choices with the help of myfitnesspal I started calorie counting again it had been about 10 months since I had used the app and after seeing it pop up in various posts I thought I should start using it again. It's only been a few days but it seems to be going well.
Exercise- I did extremely well this week and was able to log 10.5 miles on runkeeper! That is definitely a personal best and I am…Continue
Well this last weekend we went out of town to visit my family. I made some not so great choices and according to the scale I've gained 6.1 lbs this week and I really just don't understand because while I made those not so great choices they also weren't THAT bad either accompanied with still getting workouts and a walk in I am really frustrated with this but I also know that I cannot let this get me down like…Continue
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.
