Won't make my fitness goals this week.

Friday, December 12, 2008

I've been sick all week and I quickly realized the exercising was not very smart. So my mind is screaming because I hate getting out of the great groove I was in.
However...I'm also celebrating a bit too...because I am learning some balance. Yes I'm sick and can' exercise, but I will be well again and I can pick right up again. All is not lost. This is a lifestyle and there will be set backs. Like they say one step back but two steps ahead.

This is actually quite huge for me in the past I'd get discouraged and give up. Now I think I'm in wait mode. Just waiting to be able to exercise again, and being healthy and taking care of me, by not exercising at this time.

    I am in the same position ... my weight loss has been steady and I have been building up a really good routine! The problem is that the past 2 weeks have not been great in terms of getting to exercise. I had what they think is a gallbladder attack on Sunday and have been sick this week and unable to do any working out. The good news is that I am still sticking to the nutritional part of my plan and on most days have been coming in on the low side of my calories (where i should be if I am not working out). I have a feeling that there wont be any loss this week .. but I am okay with that. We are building healthy habits and there will be times when the world doesn't co-operate with us! I am just going to get back to the gym next week. I hope you are feeling better soon .. I just wanted to let you know you weren't alone!!!

And we'll be danzin...danzin!

Thursday, December 04, 2008

Well first I have to do this...

Whoooooooooooo hoooooooooooooo stubborn scale gave up another 2 pounds so I'm down to 186 if I leaned a certain way and held my breath and crossed my eyes, toes and fingers I could make it almost say 185 but in the end I gave up and accepted the truth it was 2 pounds not 3 pounds. lol

I'm not sure I can meet my goal of 2500 calories burned this week its been a
very hectic week and I even thought of lowering my goal I hate to see my streaks go down and I have to get groceries tomorrow and decorate for christmas as well as work the dreaded day shifts. Have I ever told you guys how much I hate mornings! : )

Today I went swimming and then I had to help my daughter with one of the community dance recitals. I was there for 6 hours. trying to round up the jazz kids, the lyrical kids, the hip hop kids, etc....and help them understand what they needed to do for the finale as it was there first time in that venue.
It was a challenge indeed and poor Kailee I thought she was going to have a melt down, but she held it together and I'm so proud of her...lol good thing it was her and not me or they would definitly have been bringing in the men in the nice white coats to take me to the funny farm.
In the end everything went well not perfect but well. The kids are so cute and the parents are just excited to see them in their costumes and on stage. It was really funny though. The tweens were all having a crush on Jason, Kailee's boyfriend who was amazing with the kids. Some of the fathers came in and they are a tough bunch of lumberjacks and Jason was helping the little three year olds remember how they were supposed to skip. That was toooo funny. He's a good sport for sure. I did the music and short of starting the first number with the wrong song I was brilliant lol.

Anyway it was fun...but I'm so glad it's over. hahaha

not much could faze me today though...cuz i'm down 2 pounds whooo hoooo.
love you guys...we can do this...one step at at a time.

My scale is stubborn as any mule.

Friday, November 07, 2008

Scale dropped the 4 pounds of fluid its been holding the last couple of days. So I'm back at my 190. Happy about that but disappointed not to see a loss this week.
I was really hoping to be in the 180's before now. Anyway on the positive side
i've lost 3.5 inches off my waist and looking at myself in the mirror I can see
positive changes in my body. My husband even teased me and called me skinny the other day saying he could definitly see a difference around my stomach area. So thats something...and I have exercised every day the last couple of weeks and i'm seeing some real gains in my cardio. So its good.

    Heather, I am so happy you are using other indicators in addition to the scales. Be proud of your accomplishments. 3.5 inches from your waistline is awesome!

I think I might faint....

Sunday, October 26, 2008


One of those witches on the fit in the britches team must have really figured out how to cast a spell on my scale...because...OMG...I still can't believe it...its down again today...2 more pounds and get this....TOM is here!!!!
I can't believe it its dropped altogether 7 pounds this week. so I think my upswing when it went up to 197 must have been fluid, but even so that means in real pounds I lost 4 real deal pounds.

Whoooooooooooooooooo hoooooooooo I'm doing ariel stunts on my flying broom. tee heeeeee.
I can put 3 more pumpkins down for the witches team this friday all ready. hurrah!
