Oct 14- Day 1

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Ugh, It kills me to type day 1.... AGAIN

After a 30 pound loss for the wedding, I am finding it so hard to get back on track and really find a true motivation. I do not have a motivation. I have gained 20 back of the 30 lost...

I am getting back to the gym to find that happy feeling of losing weight again. Even if it is .1 pound per week, I miss the scale going down. I miss the feeling of my clothes not being tight, I miss the feeling of "Wow, I see a difference in you" from my husband or friends. I miss the good moods I was in everyday and that I didn't let the little stresses get me down. I miss the happiness the working out gave me. And I miss the extra energy the workouts provide me...

Today is day one of the gym. I want to go three days a week... Four on the days hubby works weekends for one month. I will increase after that.

Goals. That is the key.

Goal one: Prove you can go to the gym three days the week of 10 / 13 / 14

    The important thing is you're starting over. It's better to be at day 1 then to continue down the road to bad habits.

It sounds like you have a great goal and you'll lose those 20 pounds that you have gained in no time.

    I am so with you, hun. At least you didn't gain it all back and then more! We have to look at the positives. The good news is that you know that you can lose the weight. You've done it before. Now is the time to find that motivation, which it looks like you have. Remember all of those feelings from when you lost the weight and how great you felt. Let's work towards feeling that again.

We can do this and I'm here for you every step of the way!!

    Don't think about it as starting completely over. You just have to get going again.. the good news is you know what you need to do. Right? You know what works for you.. after all you lost 30 pounds.

You're on the right track, you have a plan. With each workout it will become easier to do the next one. Start your streak today! It's time to think about what you need, schedule those workouts and don't cancel. If you made a date with your husband or friend, would you cancel? don't cancel on yourself.

Today is day one of the restart!

I lost 30 pounds before my wedding and in 8 weeks, gained 10 to 12 pounds back by eating everything and anything I wanted plus I didn't formally workout.

I was married a month and a half ago! I love my hubby and I am loving our new life though nothing changed but my last name... Which is a hell of a process to get legally changed.

I was promoted at work and I love the new job but I am 10 times busier than I ever was which is great but less time to hang out with all of you.

Today is day one of logging all food, eating right and working out again. My lifestyle has no more breaks, no more pauses... Just me doing the very best I can day after day! I am ready to be healthy and fit for me and for my family!

    Welcome back! I'm hoping you post pics of the wedding sometime.

I dread having to go through the process of the name change.

Great job getting back on track today. emoticon

I feel lost and alone.

I have been getting really sick after only 30 minutes at the gym of cardio or lifting. I tried cardio only and it was still happening, I tried lifting only and it still happened... I tried changing my snacks before and after and still happening. I get to the point where I am sick to my stomach and light headed... and it lasts for HOURS. I thought it was a good thing to prove I was pushing myself... I was making changes and my body would get used to it. I thought I needed to up my pre workout snack and it would even out but it didn't change.... I have hit the point now where I cannot workout for more than 10 minutes or I feel like this for days.

I called the doctor and he said he could not tell me what's wrong without doing blood work and he does not have any appointments before I leave in 8 days for Vegas and the honeymoon. I cannot get in to see him but I cannot workout wither... What am I to do? Where does this leave me?

I feel lost... I feel alone.

    I'm a little late to seeing this but I would definitely call the doctor once you get back! I would have said try another doctor before but I think it's too late now since that was a week ago.

How are you feeling now, any better? Did something happen or change that started causing it?

Lastly, I think your wedding is this weekend? Since you said you leave in 8 days and that was last week Friday. Have a wonderful wedding in Vegas and honeymoon!

    That is certainly a change to take notice of and I'm glad you're paying attention to it - I hope you'll find another doctor or clinic that may be able to see you before you travel just to be safe. It could be just stress or it could be something else, but take some rest. Sue is right that exercise is only a part of the healthy life style. Eating well and resting when you need to are big parts too.

I hope everything in these last days before the wedding and honeymoon go smoothly and happily for you emoticon

    Do you have an Immedicenter of a Medi-Quick or a CVS Minute Clinic or some other sort of walk in medical facility near you? GO TO IT. The first thing I thought of is your blood pressure, but it could be any number of things, and not to scare you, but some of them are life-threatening. This is important, and something you need to do before you fly. Please do this - many places are open on weekends.

    See another doctor? Maybe a sports medicine specialist? I don't know you, so please don't be offended...but could you be pregnant? Even if you saw a doctor right away the results of the blood test wouldn't come back until after you were gone. So just do what you can right now.
You'll get this figured out. Even if you have to wait until after your wedding. You can still eat well in the mean time. You can still watch your portions, make your own meals, try new recipes, eat your veggies, and decide not to sit on the couch and watch tv while eating empty calories. Exercise is only part of a healthy lifestyle.

Don't give up.

P.S. Hope you have a great honeymoon!

    Your health is first. If you feel sick while working out don't do it, or do it in short spouts, do not overwhelm yourself. Ten mins here and there might be better than just doing it all together. Keep eating right and wait until you see your doctor to do anything else. I hope you feel better and have fun on your trip!

So, I am looking forward to a lot of things coming up in my life...

--The wedding will be here before we know it...
--Work is getting more busy which we need and I love...
--I am more excited about Europe then I am my wedding (Shh...) I've never been out of the country besides on a cruise and I am looking forward to it.
--I am exicted to marry my best friend. I love him so much!
--I am excited to try new food and be with him for two weeks exploring some place he has never been. Almost all vacations we have taken, he has been there before.

I am most excited about maintaining my new lifestyle while over there. I will try new foods and not limit myself but I will portion food out and I will definitely get workouts in. I am looking forward to working out in a new places and being active!

    It's coming up so quickly! I'm excited for you.

My cousin just got back from his honeymoon to Europe they did a few days at a beach resort in Spain, then went on to Barcelona, Paris and then Italy. So not the same places that you're going but they loved it. They did so much walking that I think you'll be fine with getting workouts in or being active. Europe is the type of place where you walk and site see. I wouldn't worry about your weight too much while there. Enjoy the food but don't go overboard, ya know?

I hope you have a great time there!

This months seems to be a roller coaster ride for me...

Early in the week, I was in a mad dash of stress... Food sucked, working out sucks, life was getting me down and wedding planning was driving me nuts but now


I feel amazing. I worked out yesterday. I am getting stronger with the running and following the C25K program. My final dress fitting did not stress me like I thought it would. My food is on track and work is busy but not so busy I cannot manage it. I feel great!

I feel good. I feel like the running helps me get things into prospective and I cannot wait to go again tonight. I never thought I would be a runner and while I am at a snails pace, I am pushing myself and will call myself a runner.

Today I am 31 pounder lighter then I was one year ago... Slow and steady wins the race right?
