New Resolve

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

I just got back from I wonderfully relaxing week in the warm... Unfortunately it also came with a terrible reality check as a tried to sausage myself into summer clothes, avoided the beach since no one wants to see that in a bathing suit and saw pictures of myself and realized just how round Iíve become. I knew my weight had been creeping up slightly instead of going down like I wanted it to the past few months, but I guess I hadnít realized it was quite as horrible as it is.

So Iíve come home with new resolve to actually make changes this time, I just hope it lasts longer than the sunburn does...


Losing faith in math and the laws of science...

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I think Iím losing faith in the whole mathematical concept of calories in less than calories out = loss. I weighed myself today, and somehow Iím up 5lbs in 2 days!!!! How did this happen?? Iíve been so good over those days, exercised lots, packed my lunches, the only thing I ate that was bad was a pop last night, but considering how horrible Iíve been some weeks when I lose weight, it doesnít make sense. I think my body may be broken; can I trade it in for a new one that rewards my hard work?

Iím trying to focus on the good things, like the improvement I felt in my ab class yesterday, but that hard to do while sitting in clothes that have decided to feel tight again wondering what else I need to change...

    I know how you feel. I track my food, make good choices and exercise and only seem to lose ounces at a time. We need to keep at it though.

    When you find a place to turn in old, wrinkled, bagging, broken bodies ... please, please, let me know :) I have one that needs to be recycled.

I just started SP (yesterday) and have made a promise to myself that I will wait an entire week before I weigh myself.

Keep your fingers crossed for me and I will do the same for you.

So close...

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I almost made it my 21 days, but last night I caved and bought chips when I was at the grocery store. But thatís ok, today weíll just start with day 1c, and if need be thereís a few more letters of the alphabet... Overall I was actually impressed with how far I got and how little I actually missed eating the junk. I was less impressed with the zero pounds lost over the 2 weeks, but I guess an injured leg (aka no exercise for a few days) offset it? Either way I know itís for the best.

Picking myself back up...Literally...

Thursday, June 27, 2013

With all the chaos of exam time, Iíd grown rather lazy with my works outs. I kept going to at least a couple classes a week, but letís just say I wasnít giving it my all... So the last week or so Iíve been trying to pick up the pace again, getting back to my normal routine and trying to push past just comfortably going through the motions.

Well in todayís step class, where did that get? Flat on my butt! Iím going to blame the pool of sweat Iíd created underneath me, but I totally wiped-out mid class and had to deal with the teacher pausing the class and everyone staring at me as I picked myself back up. For a class where I already feel like a fat out-of-shape cow, this was not the most pleasant of experiences. I could feel all the thin young things judging me... (Yes, I know it was probably all in my head but..)

But I got back up, with nothing hurt by my pride and carried on, all be it a little tentatively. Now if only I could figure out how to stop fretting over it for the next 4-5 days...

    Be proud of yourself for getting back up and continuing. You made it to the class and made it through the class so that's what counts. Keep up the good work. Don't let the young things bother you. emoticon

    emoticon but emoticon (seriously!)
Good for you for getting back up and carrying on! It's hard not to think that everyone is judging you in those classes, but chances are they probably aren't. Everyone is there for the same purpose; to work out and to get into or keep in shape. Don't let your brain get in the way, because that's all it is. I would walk right back into that same class the next time it's offered (with an extra towel to catch my sweat) with my head held high and my sneakers laced tight :)

Well the bad news is I bought snack food in the grocery store yesterday, but the good news is it was crackers and cream cheese not the chips I really wanted to buy. And, I didnít eat everything in one night.
