A GOOD Problem to have!!!!

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

I have a problem! I BIG but WONDERFUL problem! I use to hear that and cringe at the person who said it and would think.... I would LOVE to have that problem!!! Well it is my turn! I do finally have that problem! I know why they "complained". I love losing some of me! I love the changes in my body. Last Thursday I bought 2 pairs of jeans for work. I grabbed 2 different sizes and figured that I would just try the small ones to see how close I was. To my shock and surprise they FIT PERFECTLY!!!!!! I came home and put them on and showed hubby! I was beyond excited!!! Then came Monday.............. I took them out of the dryer and hung up the one pair and put the other pair on. I was a bit upset. I thought that I could make it work but then when I got to work and got my keys and such...... my pants kept trying to slide down off my hips!!!!!! I was constantly trying to pull them up! Now I am worried about the whole woman issue! Any men reading this probably don't know what I am talking about unless you have a wife/girlfriend that goes through this! But for you ladies.... You know what I am talking about. I am afraid that they will be a bit snug when I get near there. So what do I do? Do I exchange them? Do I keep them and pray that I can keep them up until after??? I know it is a good problem to have. I am eating well and constantly moving for 8 hours a day at work. This is ALL I been doing. I think that my muscle mass that I built up over the past month, when I wasn't losing any weight, has created what I needed to lose the weight. I was praying that the scale would move and the clothes would start feeling lose and I could get into my smaller clothes. I have clothes that I never got rid of because I wanted back in them!!! LOL But unfortunately, none of them are work appropriate for work! Not that they are skimpy or anything but I have to wear certain colors and they are not the colors that I really bought much of! LOL I prefer black and blue jeans over tan! LOL Anyway, I just wanted to post about what has been going on!! Good luck to you all and wishing you all the best!!!!

    I am so having the same issue with clothes right now. I'm down to ONE pair of work pants that fit properly, and even they're starting to bag out. I complain about it, but in reality, it's a GOOD thing. Not so much for my wallet, but.

Congratulations. :)

Work can do that to you!

Sunday, July 28, 2013

That's what I said! Work can do that to you! I work in sales. I am on my feet for 8 hours a day. There is bending, walking, reaching, lifting.......! I am tired when I come home! But then I look at the pants I wore the day I went for my orientation!!! They are hanging on my bathroom door! Why??? Because they don't fit! I have been wearing my capris that I had and they are starting to get loose! Now, I have only lost 11 pounds since I started coming on Sparks BUT I have lost a total of 15 pounds since I started with my new lifestyle. Yes, it's been a few months. Don't get me wrong, I am loving this but you haven't seen me! I have legs!!! While the weight doesn't look like a big change, I have muscles in my legs! They are more defined. The thighs are starting to come back too. I know that muscle weighs more than fat. This is probably why I haven't seen much change of the scale. It's been 3 weeks at work. I will be there a month, later this week. I just wish my stomach would change!! I don't like it!!! But I have to be patient! I have to keep working and remember that ANYTHING WORTH DOING, IS WORTH DOING WELL!!!!!

    Keep it up. Some people take a little longer to lose than others. What matters is the scale is going in the right direction and all those changes in your body that you are seeing! emoticon emoticon

Been a couple days!!!

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I can't believe I haven't blogged in a couple days... Well, today is Wednesday and my last day was Saturday!!! I actually can believe it but this is usually what gets me in trouble!! Anyway, Sunday was my rest day... except for my 1 mile express walking workout! I got that done!! But then on Monday and Tuesday (I hate being a woman!!) I hurt so bad I couldn't hardly move! I tried but it wasn't going to happen! Tuesday was better BUT I did have orientation from work, so I didn't do my morning workouts, cardio and toning! Today I got back on it! I did over 20 minutes of the cardio and toning. Tonight, I will be doing walking before Church. Tomorrow will probably only be walking as I will have a full workout just working at work. Not use to being on my feet all day and will have to be doing a lot of bending and stretching and walking. But I got this!!!

Sunday, I BLEW my calories away and went over. I miss judged what I ate and went over! :(.... Monday I fought to get enough calories in because of my worry about making the mistake I did on Monday!!! Yesterday, I did pretty good despite being at work and not having an actual lunch. They gave us fresh veggies, banana bread, and soft peanut butter cookies. We also got a bottle of water. It worked!! I ate some snap peas and I admit a slice of banana bread and 1 cookie. Then I did the killer! I had a medium strawberry shake from McDonalds.... I shouldn't have but I managed to NOT go over my limit! I only had 49 calories left before it but still didn't go over!

Tomorrow I am going to wear my pedometer to work to see how much walking I end up doing during the day. Should be interesting. Wish me luck... and you all have a happy and safe 4th, for those in the states!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


Day 3 of My Exciting but Slow Transformation!

Sunday, June 30, 2013

It's been only 3 days? That makes me nervous because I usually lose track within the first week!!! I don't want to give this up! I did a cardio and a toning workout this morning. Then tonight I did a walking workout. My legs are a little sore but I still feel good. Just wish my foot (feet) wouldn't cramp. This morning, during my cardio, both feet cramped so bad it was hard to keep going. I did my best but had to slow down and only do about half the pace of everything. The only advantage is that I am close enough to a beginner that I could still feel the raise in my heartbeat.

I know I haven't told anyone about this yet, but I have a huge reason I need to do this. I cry each time I think how stupid I have been for not working on it sooner!!! I had open heart surgery when I was 6. It is good and strong and heeled up well, but I am still worried. My Dad has heart problems and had repeated surgeries. My Mom had a triple bypass. I don't want to go down that road but afraid it is to late!!! So I need to move it now!!! Try and save as much of myself that I can!

I am proud of how much I have done the past couple days. Hoping that I can keep up the good work!!! Good luck to you wall!

    My hubbies doctor gave him this advice. He told him to put a glass bottle in the freezer. Take it out and row the bottom of each foot over the bottle. Do this before and after exercise. Then massage your feet.

Day 2: My Journey Continues!

Friday, June 28, 2013

Today I am tired!!! This morning I did 2 workouts. One cardio and one toning. Then this evening I did a mile walk workout. I can literally feel my body improving. Even just a couple days, I can keep up better each time. I am planning on doing a walk, whether indoors or out (prefer outdoors), each day even if I do a workout. Tonight, I went out to play with my baby boy goats. Tomorrow, I will go play with my girls. Trying to fight the couch potato in me!!!

I am so proud of what I have done the past 2 days! I am feeling better about myself, a little at a time! I can't wait until I actually SEE the difference! I will love it when I don't hate my arms in tank tops! Then next my legs!! I know things will progress pretty equally but want to see results. My legs feel a little wobbly tonight but I do feel great despite it!!! The muscles feel tight after it all and that I am HAPPY about! For me, there is something about going and taking a nice cool shower in the summer after a workout!!!! My other goal is to keep posting daily, unless for some reason I am not able to post due to not being at a computer! Good luck to all of you!!!!
