just updating and accounting.

I would have done really well today if it werent for all the FAT I ate today. Man I love cheese. Creamy Colby...mmmm. lol. Then we went out to eat for dinner. I logged it all.

Spark says I did not go over number wise, just bad choices.

I did work out for an hour this morning, then worked outside some, will post fall decor later. I got in over 16,000 steps today according to my fitbit tracker.

All next week I plan to get in 1 whole hour of VERY active exercise. For some reason my bike is not considered VERY active, I guess cause it cant gauge resistance. So that means 1 hour on the treadmill. I have been getting faster at my walking, and even tiny bits of jogging thrown in. It's just that 30 mins seems like forever! Now Im gonna do 60. shew!

This coming week is the fair so I have to get all this done in the mornings mostly. I wont get to go to the fair until maybe Wednesday, but I will get to go 3 or 4 days/nights when I am not working AND I will have my grand daughter all week. YAY!

Am still hovering above the 299 mark, cant say that I will hit it this week *crossing fingers*.

Have a great week !

-3 pounds!

Friday, September 19, 2014

Morning's weigh in 301. I cant believe it. I was at 304 yesterday just hoping for a 1 pound loss to count as a maintain for the week, since last Friday I was 303.

2 pounds away from Twosville, although I am tired and did not sleep very well I am excited too! All that bad girl party food weight and water is gone!

If it were not for the beep beep beep of someone backing into a driveway across the street I would still be asleep dreaming of going to the bathroom, lol. I was at someone's house and had to go, and the toilet seat was all fluffy and ruffly and when ya sat on it it bounced up and down, CRAZY! I have crazy dreams.

I have today off from work, I see laundry in my future. Bout it folks!

Have a great weekend!

1 pound to go and all my bad girl party weight will be gone *whew*!

I have logged into Spark for 82 days in a row. Pretty darn good if I do say so myself.

Last night while walking on the treadmill I tried small (and I mean SMALL) bouts of jogging. Enough to get my heart really pumping and my lungs REALLY working to the point that I remembered that feeling in Gym class in high school. Remember? When your lungs feel cold yet on fire at the same time and the feeling comes up your throat? Yeah not pleasant, yet satisfying. Im still clearing my throat. lol. Yeah well Im gonna think of my gym teacher today when I do it again. I hated that man. lol Maybe I should think of something more pleasant like root canal.

Well I have to get with it. Working later today and into the evening so that will help with the munchies I hope. Im having that crabby, want to eat everything in site week before that you know what.

Drink that water!

    Congratulations Sandy , you are really working hard ! Yes, I do remember how it felt in gym class , when we had to run around the block in the morning in gym shorts; we thought we would freeze LOL. Didn't like my gym teacher either by the way :) She was just a little too perfect. I've also got that munchie thingy in the evening ...but I've packed so many veggies in the fridge that if I look in there all I see for every square inch are nothing but cukes, peppers , apples etc..... I have alot of herbal (decaf) tea during the day; which I call my soup. It helps. My fave one is green dragon pearl tea.

Have a great day Sandy I enjoyed your blog !!

regaining my lead

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Is it really considered a weakness in a fat person to want to eat the same kinds of foods that everyone else eats? Isn't it our right to want to share in the celebration and the party and the FOOD without resorting to eating celery sticks while everyone else has cake? Why does eating a peice of cake make ME gain 4 pounds? Its UNFAIR I scream (internally where no one can hear me and call the looney wagon).

Do you know what else is unfair? Water weight. I know IN MY HEAD that the numbers don't add up vs the work I put in. So why does it discourage and drag me down? Just when it looked like I was going to make a goal. *disgusted sigh*

I know I sound like a whiner, but realistically don't we all sound that way at times? It's unfair, it's not my fault, it's life, it's the situation I am in, it's my spouse, it's my kids, it's my hormones, it's my love life, it's birthday parties and Christmas, it's's any number of things.

So even though I am whining I DO have my tennis shoes on, I do have my bottle of water and my scrumptious fiber one bar and I plan to sweat my butt off today exercising and doing housework. My mind has already taken inventory of what I have in the house for lunch that is healthy. The left over party food is gone.

Just me, today, and then the next, then the one after that...

    I agree!.....sometimes it seems like it's just not fair...other people can eat foods like cake, pizza and I guess their metabolism is just different than mine. Don't get discouraged! You did the right thing and just "dug in" and kept working toward your goal. Keep on track and keep the faith and you will be victorious!!! emoticon emoticon

Bad bad girl.

I haven't been very good the last couple of days. Thursday I did not hit my 10,000 steps :( Last night we went to pizza hut. :( :( I haven't blogged since TUESDAY!

Scale is up, I am down. lol. I'll come out of it. Im sitting here in my nightgown and sweat shorts and tennis shoes, what a vision! Getting psyched up to get on my bike, then my treadmill, then I HAVE to do kettles today since I skipped those on Thursday and Friday too. My stomach is protesting the pizza hut like crazy this morning. It's like UGGGH, what did you do to me?

We have a birthday party to go to tonight, so that wont be good either. Chalk it up to Life happens!

At this point I really don't know if I will hit 299 in 9 days, since after last night I have about 6 pounds to go I know the pizza hut/water weight will gradually leave because I know the numbers game my body is playing with me. Still, I have only been losing about 3 pounds a week...we'll see. If I dont, at least I know I HAVE been losing and will eventually get there.

    Your comment that you have a party to go to so you know that won't be good - COULD be great if you take control of the opportunity. Try packing something to take with you so that you don't give into temptation of something not so great! Sounds like everyone will stare or make it uncomfortable? Well, you'd be surprised at the amount of people who just don't care. Do it for you!! :) Best of Luck!

    Sometimes it's hard, really hard, to stay focused on your goal. From Monday to Monday last week I gained seven (7) pounds; one (1) of those days I ate 3500 calories (the calories in one pound of fat). All the other days, in theory anyway, I ate less calories than I expended. How could I gain weight? And that much weight! Bottom line is that it doesn't matter. I'm beginning to be aware of how I feel when I over eat and/or eat things that my body really does not like. That's a major victory!! Pizza not something I love and desire to eat endlessly? Maybe, 'cause now it doesn't feel as great as it once did and it doesn't make me feel good. Huh, I didn't even think that was possible! Most of the calories that one (1) day--pizza!!
