Learning how to juggle life can be difficult.

Friday, October 18, 2013

Balance is hard, but I'll get there eventually.

    Couldn't play your video. However, it DOES get easier. Eventually, you'll just have less to juggle, and be happy for it. Good luck, Glenn

In Order to Rise, Sometimes We Must Fall

Monday, October 07, 2013

This past weekend my husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary! We went away for the weekend. Which put me up +3.4lbs this morning from my weigh in on Friday morning. I know I did not gain over 3lbs, it's mostly water weight gain. I did NOT watch ANYTHING I shoved in my face from Friday afternoon on. Well, I watched it go in, but I didn't document it, and I didn't care about the repercussions. I just wanted to enjoy myself.

I'm not worried. I know in a couple days it will come back off. It'll probably help my little plateau I have going on. I hadn't moved much in the scale in the 4 days prior to the weekend. So it might be the SHAKING up my body needs to get it's little butt in burning gear again.

I think sometimes falling off the wagon can help us in the long run. To see how well you can bounce back after a fall. To show how well our minds and bodies can recover.

I'll bounce back! I know I will. It's not going to be like when I got married last year. I never came back once I went on my honeymoon. My normal routine started this morning. I'm a routine girl. I generally have the same thing for breakfast, I do the same thing every morning Mon-Fri, it just varies a little depending on whether or not I have the kids or not. But that doesn't change up my routine very much.

This morning I got up and went right back into my routine. Because that's how I know I will LOSE the weight. Because it's what has been working for me up until this point.

Remember don't let a slip up take you down. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT! Fight to get back on the horse. Fight to get back to your routine. RISE!

ROCK IT! Rock it today, tomorrow, and always!

    Yeah I visited my husband in Chicago this weekend and I was careful what I ate except yesterday downtown I ate Five Guys Cheeseburger and a small amount of fries. I had two diet root beers. My clothes are fitting looser and I had a great amount of exercise, but every meal was OUT. I am sure I am bloated and whatnot from long days of travel, horrible sleep, and etc.

    get back to that routine. Fact is a woman just can't eat what a man does. He can sit and stuff his face with anything and everything and not gain. A woman can't do that. emoticon emoticon

    Yeah 10 pounds wasn't so great for me either.. but by 20 pounds that's when I noticed a difference in my body and that my clothes fit looser. Just keep on going and you'll see it :-)

    Even if you don't notice the change in your body, by photo or sizes do you feel a difference during your physical activity levels? I am trying to guage my success by if I can walk that mile and finish without have to take as many rests as when I first started. Was I able to keep pace for the whole duration of the activity. Sometimes success doesn't come in visible gains, but in physiological changes where our bodies become more readily able for physical activity. emoticon emoticon

There's a chance I can reach my new goal!

Sunday, September 29, 2013

If I can stay on track for the next two weeks, I believe I CAN achieve my goal of my weight the day I got married last year. I weighed 184. I remember I was so happy! I had made a goal to be under 190 by October 12th and I decided to change it to being at my wedding weight since I was doing so well, then I had my doubts that I would make it because of the odd and rough 5 days I had, where I was doing what I was supposed to, and the scale kept climbing. As of this morning I am 188.6. I'm ecstatic with that! So if I can stay on top of things, and keep doing what I'm doing, I think 4.6lbs in 2 weeks is possible. If I don't hit it, I WILL NOT beat myself up over it, I will continue to push and work and watch the scale go down.

Yesterday, I decided to break out my Ease into 5 K app. I think I did great. I went close to 3 miles in a half hour with my walk/run intervals. I am PROUD. I'm PROUD that I wanted to do it. Running isn't my favorite thing, it hurts my joints. Being heavy and having all that weight impact your joints is painful, but I pushed through it, and I didn't stop or give up, I finished STRONG.

I was going to do Day 2 today, but it was raining all day, so I cleaned house instead. Now I think I'm going to go and lift some weights, I feel like working my arms.

I hope EVERYONE continues to ROCK IT! I am so proud of everyone's accomplishments!!! You are all so inspiring!
