The holidays caught up to me and jumped me!

Saturday, January 03, 2009

I so didn't want to write of my defeat by the holidays. I looked forward to a triumphant they couldn't get me blog. Alas its not to be. I stepped on the scale today and was up 3 pounds. I'm feeling bad about that...but the holidays were fun. I'm going to spend this week detoxing from all the delicious but horribly bad junk and sweet that has me craving constantly. Company is all gone as of today and I'm looking forward to gettig back into the groove. I'm in a distance challenge witht he New team and my goal is to walk, run, or swim 63 miles in January. I'm in a weight loss challenge with the Divine Divas at Fit, Fabulous and Forty and I'm hoping to drop 8 pounds this month.

Time to sit down and do some planning to make all this happen.

Waving to you,

Whooooooo HOOOOO yippie yahooooeeeeeeee!

I'm smilin my face right off!!! Having been sick the last couple of weeks I didn't get much exercise in and far too many times I blew it with my eating. Today I thought I have got to exercise sick or not. Then I thought I better look at the scale...
I was holding my breath and frantically in my mind saying don't be up, don't be up, don't be up. It never even occurred to me the scale which is so contrary for me...would go down.

But whooooooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooo it dropped 4 pounds. I couldn't stop smiling if my life depended on it. What a welcome, and unexpected christmas gift.

I'm really seeing the changes in my body and getting lots of remarks from other people so I'm feeling really good about what I'm doing.

Have a great christmas everyone.
big hugs

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 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 step at at a time.
