Wonderful weather

Saturday, April 18, 2009

I had such an uplifting day today. I was late for my skate, and they made us get off the rink at the right time, so I was 9 minutes down on my cardio plan already. Then, I knew that I was walking with a friend/relative this afternoon, so I didn't stress about it. The walk we took was at a local nature reserve with beautiful trees, bridges, water, wildlife(squirrels, birds, chipmunks). The sky was so blue! I felt totally revived after our walk, and this evening, decided to get the kids out of the house and enjoy it with them too. So, we went to a close park and flew the kite my oldest got for his 5th birthday(he will be 9 soon). I was so glad we went, they kids enjoyed it sooooooo much, and I felt totally rejuvenated again afterwards. I spent about 3 hours after they went to bed doing financial crunching, and had a very constructive chat with my hubby, so I had a very productive day! Oh! I also managed to get my strength training in early today, which left me a free evening to crunch numbers!

Boing, Boing, Boing.....

Here I am, bouncing like a rubber ball again. I went a little hogwild on leftovers the last couple of days, and I have gained back 2 pounds, but, I am not set back as far as I thought I was, and I have decided that I am going to bump up my exercise to 1 hour daily again. Since I went to 30 minute sessions a few days a week, is when I have been really struggling. Burning those couple hundred extra calories really gives me some much needed breathing room with my intake, and I need to get past that 168 on the scale to get things really moving again. I had just about given up yesterday, I was telling myself, I like my body right here, I am very happy with how I look, so what if I am still overweight! Then, I decided that I want more than that! I want to be a healthy weight and live longer. So, I am done with leftovers, gonna avoid those cookies, and make today a great day! I just can't believe how hard this journey is, not that I expected it to be easy or anything. I guess the newest thing I have learned from SP is that I can keep working at it, and never give up!

    Talk about staying power, you are it, for over a year you have challenged yourself and realized goals, don't stop now because a few leftovers beckoned, they will be gone and then what? You have so much determination, don't give up on yourself, I won't let you!!! It is so worth it! YOU are worth it and yes you do look great right now (not that you looked bad before) but what will 160 look like!!!

    Banish the leftovers! LOL But great job on all that extra exercise. That is completely key. That's right - today is another day. You can do it! Being under 170 is totally worth it.

  It's nice to know that I am not the only one out there that is struggling. I feel like I keep bouncing back and forth on the scale depending on what's going on in my life. I would like to just find a schedule to stick to but then that would be boring....LOL. I wish you luck and if you figure out a way to quit "bouncing" let me know.

I had a fantastic week this past week. I stuck within my calorie range for the most part and got in just the right amount of exercise without overdoing it. I went way overboard in my food at dinner yesterday though! I logged it after everyone had gone home, and I ate almost 2000 calories at our Easter dinner last night! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH! Now, in days gone by, that would have been nothing for me, but I'll tell ya, I was so full! I just couldn't believe how many calories it was! So, when I realized how overboard I went, I got on my stationary bike for 1 hour to burn off some extra calories. I only gained .2 pounds from yesterday to today, and for the week total I am down 4.6 pounds! That gets me almost back down to my lowest weight so far, and keeps me away from the 170's! I am never going back, I told my buddy, and she is holding me to it!

Happy Hoppy Easter!

Sunday, April 12, 2009

Happy Easter everyone! Don't overindulge today! I am trying very hard to resist the chocolate treats, and save a bit of space for our potluck dinner today, because I want to be able to have a sweet dessert. Hope everyone has a great day!

Finally! The weather cooperated and I got out on my rollerblades! 30 minutes burned over 250 calories! I am tired, but it sure felt great!

    Wow - that's great! I've had limited experience rollerblading. Let's just say that I can't really stop and I don't navigate sidewalk cracks very well..... emoticon
