Why oh why do I do this

Friday, January 17, 2014

I haven't wrote a blog in 2 months and since then I have fell way off the wagon :( Winter has always been an issue with me. Stupid cold weather, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years have always thrown me for a loop! I tried but obviously I didn't try my hardest because I'm up almost 3 pounds and feel miserable! Bye Bye Onederland :( until we meet again!
Moving on....
In the beginning of December my wonderful Husband and I decided that it was time to make my dreams of being a stay at home mom/wife come true! So I am now at home 6 out of 7 days of the week. I still go in to our business on Fridays to do payroll and other paperwork. I have been enjoying every minute of being at home (even the cleaning part), but I know that this major change in my life has contributed to my weight gain! It has been about a month and a half since I stopped working every day and I am still trying my hardest to get back into a routine that works for me! I know I will get it sooner or later but I'm just frustrated that I let myself go back to my old ways again! This week I have started incorporating some of more new ways back into my schedule. I know it will take some time to really get back into it so I'm trying so hard to think positive!
On a good note I was asked to be a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding! So I have another reason to stick to my goals! Because I want to look smokin in that bridesmaids dress!!

So Sparkfriends here's to a fabulous 2014 of eating good and working my butt off (literally)!

    I think a lot of us are on that rain right now... I haven't gotten on the scale since September and I know it's NOT pretty. I've decided to weigh in tomorrow and face the music. We'll get it together and you WILL look smokin' hot in the dress ;)

Week 32: I did it! I did it! I did it!

Monday, November 11, 2013

HELLO ONEDERLAND!!! Oh how I've missed you! Saturday morning I got on my scale and to my surprise it said 199.0! I had to get off and get back on the scale a couple of times just to make sure my scale wasn't going crazy or I wasn't seeing things! lol I'll tell you what if I wasn't motivated before I sure am motivated now!! I know it's just a # on a scale but damn it feels good! I think I need to take some after pics to see if I can see any difference! I'm sure I will be able to!! If and when I do I will post them!
I do believe I'm going to start another goal...... I would like to loose 33 pounds by my 33rd birthday which is on June 23rd. That's exactly 1 pound per week until then!! That will put me at 166 which is about 35 lbs away from my goal!! I don't think that's too crazy of a goal! I know I can do it! I also think I'm going to step up my working out. Right now I walk 4 nights a week for about 2.5 miles at a time. I really need to get back into my 30 day shred so I can get some strength in. Maybe I will just start tonight!!
Till next time spark friends... Keep sparking and have a fabulous week!!! I know I will!

Week 30: It's been awhile

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

I haven't wrote a blog in 8 weeks! Yikes! I've been a bit busy so I really haven't had the time... but that's beside the point of this blog so here goes.......

I have made it to my 2nd goal of another 10 pounds gone FOREVER!! 20 pounds altogether!! WOOT WOOT!! Even though Spark People is still saying 19, I'm going to go ahead and take it!! lol
It has taken me 7 months to lose those 20 pounds but you know what I don't care! I had some ups and downs along the way and in August I really thought about just giving up but then I went back and reread the letter that I wrote to my husband about all the reasons why I needed and wanted to lose weight and also reread my goals, that's all I needed to get back on track!
I'm sure that if I eat better and worked out more than I do, I would lose even more but I'm happy with taking things slowly and everyday I'm getting better and better at this eating and working out thing!
So now comes the REALLY exciting part....... I AM .9 lbs away from being in "ONEDERLAND"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm hoping to get there by next week and if not, hopefully in the near future!! I have been in onederland several times in my life and never have I ever really appreciated it. I am now so excited and appreciative of the fact that I will be there soon and that I got to that point from hard work and determination, and not diet pills or crazy crash diets like I have done before!
The last time I was in the 100's I was taking phentermine and of course I lost a crazy amount of weight in a short period of time but as soon as I stopped taking them I gained all the weight back plus 10 pounds so I have promised myself that I will NEVER ever lose weight the easy way again!!
Now on to my NSV.... My family just recently went through all of our summer clothes and brought our winter clothes out of storage (no this is not my NSV lol). While going through my clothes I realized that I had several pairs of dress pants that no longer fit!! So I shipped them off to my sisters house so she can wear them until she can't fit into them any longer (she's losing weight as well). Then I started trying on winter clothes that I could NOT wear last year and guess what.... some of them fit!! There were a few items that were a little snug but I WILL fit into them comfortably by the end of winter! That is my new goal along with losing the next 10 pounds!!
On a side note.... I have said in one of my previous blogs that I wanted nothing more than to be a stay at home mom/wife and that dream is quite possibly going to happen at the beginning of this year!! I couldn't be happier!! I'm trying not to get my hopes up but it's hard not to think that everything you've ever wanted was falling into place!

Whew sorry for the rambling blog! I hope everyone has a fabulous week and keep sparking! I know I will! emoticon

Week 22: I think I've finally got it

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Since my last post I've kinda fell off the radar :( So as of Tuesday of this week I am back at it and feeling really great about losing the weight and getting healthy again!! Over the past few weeks I have gained a few pounds because I just really haven't cared. BUT this morning I got on the scale and after getting back into for a few days I am now only up 1 pound!! I am determined to do this!!
I'm not making excuses but the last few weeks have been ridiculously crazy and stressful!! I never thought of myself as an emotional eater but I guess I am! I hardly excerised and ate whatever I wanted and now I'm reflecting and thinking geez what am I crazy?? No probably not just a normal person that made some slip ups! I WILL NOT let these last few weeks become a habit again! I WILL stick to tracking my food and workouts and blogging and doing whatever I can to become the person I want to be!!
Thanks Sparkfriends!!!
Have a fabulous week!

    So glad you are back! You can totally do this girl! Take it from someone who didn't care for almost a whole year! Luckily I maintained and didn't put a ton back on, but good for you catching it after only a month.

Week 19: Sabotaging myself

Monday, August 19, 2013

I feel like I'm sabotaging myself!! I haven't been tracking my food like I was and I haven't got the work outs in that I was. The only good thing is, is that my weight has gone down 1.6 pounds this past week!!!! I don't know how or why but it has. I'm sure my body is in shock from eating all the crap and not working out as much. I have made a promise to myself that this time was the time for changing so I have a want to get back to being healthy again!! I have to look past the fact that for the last 2 weeks I have been sabotaging this effort and get back to it! I don't ever want to be 220 pounds again and if I keep this up I will be back there soon :( So I'm making a promise to myself, my family, and to all my sparkfriends that I am getting back on track NOW!!!
I just keep saying to myself I can do this I can do this I can do this! I hope my brain starts communicating to my hands and mouth that what I have been doing to not good for me and my weight loss journey!!!!
I hope everyone has a great week and keep sparking!!
