Still here

Monday, February 13, 2012

I am still here and hanging in there. To actually have dedicated the time and effort to continuously log in and track is an accomplishment in itself. Now I just need to be consistent in tracking on Fri, Sat & Sun when I am not at work. For me it's easier to track at work. At home I get sidetracked or forget about what exactly I put in my mouth.

On another note, I have started the 30 day shred. I did it Sat & Sun. I am not doing it today. I hurt too much and I don't want to push it to the point where I really hurt something and then can't work out at all. I had started doing it before that stomach bug got a hold of me and I was doing good. I put on a pair of jeans today and they are not as tight as they were, so that is progress! I think I will measure this Friday when I weigh myself.


Not my idea of fun

The stomach flu is definately not my choice for losing weight. I will do anything under the sun to puke. It is my one biggest fear. On Friday it hit me. I laid in bed(besides running back and forth to the bathroom) from the time the kids got home from school until Sunday morning. Yesterday was the first day I have actually been hungry. I was just bummed that my spark streaks were blown. Oh well, time to build those percentages back up. I did not exercise yesterday. I didn't think my body was up to it yet. Today at lunch I did two laps around the block and plan to do some regular exercise tonight. I saw some weight loss last weigh in, so let's see some more!


Hanging in there

Monday, January 16, 2012

I am still in the fast break stage, but I am feeling more confident and being consistant. I hope to move to stage 2 this coming up weekend. I didn't want to move to early before I was consistant in my goals. I felt it was best to focus on those first so I can build from here. I changed one of my goals from not drinking soda to drinking 8 glasses of water a day. To me that was more realistic. I usually don't have a diet soda until I have drunk 8 glasses. Usually I don't even finish my glass of soda. So to me that is an improvement over the 3-5 cans of soda a day. Now I just need to focus on what I consume at meals.


Feeling Better

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

I am back. Took a little break there. I was too tired and sick to worry about my goals. When I couldn't take it any longer I went to urgent care. I have a sinus infection but I also had something going on in my chest. So I am now on three presciptions. I was really down about having to break my streaks but I'll just re-start my streaks today. I want to get two weeks of my streaks behind me before I move onto Stage 2.

This whole journey is just downright frustrating. It's so hard. I guess if it was so easy I wouldn't be in this position. I felt like uck yesterday and knew I was getting a cold, so what do I do I go to Wendys and get a Baconator with small fries and a diet coke. Time to suck it up and move on. Today is a bright new day even though I am now full blown sick and I am not sure if I will get in my 10 minutes today or not.

    This is my first week, but I lost 60 pounds with Sparkpeople a few years ago, and kept it off until I had some serious health issues and regained. In the beginning it was really tough. I didn't know how I would make it through. I cried. I didn't know how any human being could maintain this kind of diet. I felt like I would never be able to enjoy food again. But it slowly got easier and easier. The more consistent I was with my diet, the more I craved the things that were good for me. It got to the point where it made me sick to eat greasy foods. And if I gave myself a "free meal" I could only finish half of what I used to be able to eat. So please hang in there. Just keep looking forward. Do your best every day. Take it meal by meal. You can do this!
