Starting to see results

Saturday, March 22, 2014

I put on a pair of jeans, and wore a t-shirt that i havn't worn in a long time. I felt good to be wearing them. Today I bought a new pair of shoes, sketchers with memory foam, and went for my 5 k -- 48:30 -- fastest yet!! And NO shin splints! I think thats the most I ran since I first started but had to stop cuz of the splints. Now if I could just follow my JC 100% I will be doing good!!

    When you see the results and feel the results, that is motivation! Allow it to drive you this week. Keep up the great work!

Self Sabbotage

Saturday, March 08, 2014

So after a week of workin my ass off, and following my JC menu, I had broke 2 goals (last friday). I was so excited as anyone could tell. Then I sunk, way down. Right from Saturday afternoon, to Friday. It was a mess. I knew what I was doing was wrong as was gunna end up kickin me in the ass come Friday morning when I stepped on the scale. So why was I doing it? Why was I continuing to eat? I wish I knew!! Do I not feel that I am worthy of success?? Cuz I am! Do I need to fail to get back the motivation to keep going? Is losing 12 lbs and beating a weight loss goal 10 days early not enough motivation? I thought it was. That 3 lbs I lost 2 wks ago came back last week and mocked me through the numbers on the scale. I want this week, and every week from here on out, to be different. I WANT to lose the weight! I WANT to succeed! I WANT to fit into my clothes again! I WANT to feel good about myself! I WANT to break goal after goal after goal! So how do I stop from sabotaging myself the next time I have a good week??

    First, don't let a slip up define you because it doesn't! Slip ups like that happens and the quicker you pick yourself up and get back on track the better!.

What I have used to keep motivated is a list of whys. I come up with as many reasons as I possibly can think of and I put it on the list, and I do mean everything. Then I make sure I hang that list where I can easily see it several times a day. If you can, hang it on the fridge door.

When the whys are many the hows become a lot easier!

Second if you are tracking food daily, on a day you slip up on, keep tracking! That way you can easily see that you had a bad day and you can make the necessary corrections.

Of course, if you have an exercise or diet buddy, that is a great way too, because then you can motivate each other.

Tomorrow is Sunday. Make it a great week! emoticon

Fridays are for Celebrating!

Saturday, March 01, 2014

Yesterday was weigh day, both at home and at JC. After the disappointment last week i KNEW I was going to meet my first goal of 10 lb loss this week. What I didn't know was just how much came off! Not only did I lose my first 10 lb but I also met AND BEAT my birthday weight goal by 1 lb, 9 days early!! Needless to say I was pretty happy yesterday morning. Later in the afternoon, I had my weigh in with JC and she decided to take my measurements. I really didn't think anything of it, but I have lost 13 inches over all!! I have lost a foot of myself from my body! I was excited!! I couldn't even tell I had shrunk that much. emoticon My next goal is only 11 lb away,,, that will be my half way point. I am trying to decide between 2 rewards. My rewards are based on my "to do" list that I made at the beginning of the year. I decided that instead of just doing them i would use some as rewards. I am so happy, and so grateful to JC for helping with my weigh loss, and I cant wait to meet my next goal! 7 weeks (or less) to mid-way point! emoticon

I also just want to thank everyone who encourages me and lifts me up when I need it. By commenting on my page, or on a blog, whether it's a response to something, or a sporadic word I really do appreciate it. Some days you have no idea just how much I needed to hear it, or just to know that someone is on my side, and knows how I'm feeling. I try to visit blogs and pages, but dont always have the time, and I do all my tracking on my phone, I'm not usually actually at my laptop. I just want you all to know I do appreciate you and one of my new mini goals is to visit and comment more often. emoticon emoticon

    Whoo hoo you're doing it!!! Now you can just keep building on your successes! Keep up your good habits and get rid of a couple bad ones emoticon I am so happy for you! I don't weigh in till next Thursday because I'm out of town, but I've been working the program like I know I should with my own food and exercise. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for your encouragement too!! emoticon Kathy

    You are correct, YOU can do it!
Sometimes a bad weigh in one week leads to a great one the next week if you don't let it discourage you and you stick to your plan.

Not giving up!

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Today was such a beautiful day I thought i would go out to walk. I changed my Nike app to Km instead of miles, hit start, and walked. My playlist was awesome and the walk was great! I didnt measure out the route first, I just walked and when I got home, I was 5.03Km and I did it in 54:13, AND burned almost 600 calories!! It was such a great walk! I just love walking outside much more then inside.

Yesterday I did some strength work on my x-box kinect. Decided twice a week was going to be for strength and 3 cardio, which will either be my treadclimber, a walk outside or a work out video. Of course, if its nice out, i'll be walking outside, trying to beat my time from the previous walk. Wont be able to do anything tomorrow though, I have a work thing and wont be home till about 9.

I am so glad that I havnt let this funk ive been in get in the way of my lifestyle changes. I still ate my JC meals (although i have cheated a bit which showed as a no loss last week), and Ive still been working out. I guess thats a big step for me, since I usually let my funks get in the way and end up quitting.

I did a mid-week weigh in, just for curiosity, and I am down almost 3 lbs since Friday so that is encouraging. Hopefully it'll stay off for my Friday weigh in. Last week should have been my first 10 lbs but i was off. I KNOW i'll get it this week, and maybe a little more. My first goal (the 10 lbs) reward was to finally get my hair cut. It hasnt been done in over a year and really needed it, so I decided to make it a reward. Next goal is my half way point, not sure what that reward is going to be though. Have 15 more lbs to go so I have time to think about it. Maybe I'll treat myself to a manicure?? We'll see. I'm just really glad that I have stuck to everything this long, and am still plugging away at it!

    That is an awesome attitude! You are right, it is a huge step to not give up altogether with one disappointment while you're working towards your goals. You are lucky your weather is better, I wish ours was! The wind outside today is so strong and the wind chill below zero, blah!! I'm betting you will hit that 10 pounds down, let me know! I don't go for a weigh in today because I'm going to Denver to help my sister. Kind of nervous because I will be off the program, and will have to really watch it closely. She's super healthy, so that helps! Have a great day and congrats again on your good attitude. emoticon Kathy

Short, sweet, and very to the point. You have been doing great!

Lost my streak,,,

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Well, I almost made it a full month of logging in, or at least spinning the wheel. I think it was Sunday where I forgot cuz I apparently didnt log anything all day. I was actually looking forward to seeing a month long streak... a day short. emoticon

Last week I only got a work out in once, and that was Monday. Between appointments and errands, I just didnt have time. Ok, so i probably did, but wasnt up to it at 7:00 in the evening when Im in bed by 9:00 (I am up at 5:00 AM). Sunday was a messed up day, as I decided to have a couple (or more) beverages while I did my housework, and ended up having cookies.... ugh!!!

This past week I have been getting more work outs in. Its been getting nice again so I've been walking outside. Feels good to get out again. Had s'mores at work today too (we made them with the kids). I at least stopped myself after 3. Craved more, mainly the chocolate, but stopped myself.

Tomorrow is the end of this week and weigh in day. Not sure I'll be too happy but then I'm not to surprised, after the past week and a half. Hopefully I'll get back on track and be as into it as I was in the beginning.
