Back to meetings

The good news is I went back to Weight Watchers meetings last night. The leader is a riot. I think I will like going to her meetings. The bad news is I gained five pounds since my last weight in which I think was two weeks ago. I deserve every one of the five pounds. I ate like crap for 2 weeks & did not exercise much at all.

Yesterday went well I stuck to my points and hit the treadmill for 45 minutes. I was so glad I got up yesterday morning & did the treadmill because let me tell you I would not have done it last night. Tonight I have my personal training class we are doing upper body again. We did upper body on Tuesday & my shoulders and back still hurt, but it is a good hurt. Tomorrow is my husbands birthday so I am taking the day off, it is really nice to only work 3 days this week. I think we are going to hit the casino , he wants to eat lunch there so I have to watch what I order. I think chicken will be a good choice.

4:45am that is the time I dragged my big ol but out of bed this morning to do 45 minutes on the treadmill. I said I would do it & I did. I ended up get up 15 minutes later then I wanted to thanks to that dang snooze button. In the past I might have just said I can not get in the time I want so I will skip, but not today I did it. I think it will get easier to get up in time.

So I am going back to Weight Watchers meetings tonight after work. They have the at work program here at work but you can not use the monthly pass & I like to buy the monthly pass because it includes e-tools which I love so I have to go to meetings after work. I would prefer going on Saturday mornings but with the personal training class I can not get there. I also went back to my personal training class yesterday after a weeks vacation. (I was only on vacation from exercise). It felt great to get back.

I am making a commitment for 2 months. My plan is to commitment fully to exercising at least 5 days a week & eating right for 2 months. I think if I can stick to it for 2 months It will become like second nature and I will want to continue after the 2 months. That is my plan & I am sticking to it. I will start going back to Weight Watchers meetings this week. I will not go over my points (the daily & extra weekly). I will get an exercise plan in place and I will stick to it. Today has gone well & so far no cravings. I am really tired today but that will not keep me away from the gym. I wish I could go in the morning but with having to be at work at 7am and the Personal training class being 6-7 there is no way I can make it. I can do the treadmill in the mornings on Wednesday & Friday. I think I might try that is week.

Goals this week:

1) Stay within my allotted points
2) Go to the gym 3 days
3) Do the treadmill 2 days

Something's got to give

As you can probably guess by my disappearance for about a week I am not doing so well sticking to the program. Something has got to give. I just can not get in the groove. It is like I have given up. I can not stop eating & I have no desire to exercise. I have been so busy this week getting ready for our Memorial Day picnic, I spent all day ( from 8am till 7pm) staining the deck & I have so much more to do.

I am making a commitment to get back on track on Tuesday. I am going to re join the Weight Watchers meetings & get back in the exercise grove. I just do not stay on track with out going to the meetings. I have a hard enough time when I go I don’t need any more excuses. I am so disappointed in my self but still can not seem to get with it.

I am happy to say I can see my collarbones. Now most people would not get excited to see collarbones, however mine have been in hiding for so long I am just so happy to get a glimpse. I am also starting to feel my hip bones, only when laying on my side but hay at least I can feel them. It shows a sign of improvement.

I have been back on the exercise and eating right wagon since Wednesday. I plan on sticking with it. No excuses I just have to do it.

In a Funk

I am in a funk. I was so motivated last Wednesday then it hit the fan. I have been horrible with my eating since Wednesday night. I did manage to go to the gym on Saturday for the 2 hour training class but I did not have the ump. Sunday I woke up & felt the urge to do the treadmill. I jogged for a little over 3 miles & did a total of 4 miles however my eating has been so off. Today at work we are having a pot luck & I am sure I will not do good again today. I can just feel it. I am hoping the season finale of Biggest Loser will motivate me to get back on track & stay on track. I have the personal training class tonight & I will go & try to get with the program. I don't know why I eat so bad, it does not make me feel any better. It makes me feel worse. I usually get a stomach ach, feel tired & don't want to do anything. So why do I do it? I truly believe it is all mental. I just need to get my mind in the game.

Wednesday weigh in

I was up .6 at weigh in today. I am not stressing over it because my eating was not on point this week. I don't think I tracked at all. I did not go over board but I did not track. Back to tracking today.

I love to watch the Biggest Loser, It is so inspiring to me. Last night the challenge was to run a marathon. I knew Tara, Helen & Mike would do it but I really did not think Ron would be able to do it. Well he sure surprised me he finished it. I was thinking of trying a half marathon in October and kept going back & forth , should I shouldn’t I? The other day I was like who am I kidding I can not even run 3 miles & I am thinking of doing a half marathon so I had decide to give it up. That is until last night. Ron inspired me, if he can do a marathon with all his health problems & aches I can do a half. I am going to do it! Even if I can not run the whole thing I will finish.

Is the weekend over already??

Why do the weekends fly by so fast and the week days go by so slow. Let me rephrase that, the work hours during the week day go by so slow. It seems like it was just Friday & here it is Monday already.

Friday night I went to a spinning class, it rocked I don't think I have ever sweated so much in my life and I burnt over 600 calories. Friday night my husband and I went to Chili's for dinner,we were so hungry we ordered chips & salsa. That was a big mistake, I probably at 600 calories in the chips alone. Saturday in my personal training class remembering the chips is what kept me pushing along. Every time I wanted to quit I remembered the chips I needed to work off. It really kept me going, not that I would recommend eating so many chips. We ran for 1.25 miles on Saturday after an hour of doing weights, I thought I would die the last .25 miles but I pushed through. Then we did another 45 minutes of circuit training. It felt great. Yesterday I did not get any exercise in, I spent the day cleaning. I usually take Mondays as my day of rest but I will count yesterday as my day of rest instead & hit the treadmill after work.

Friday after work I decide to go shopping, I thought I have worked hard & lost some weight, I will go buy some new clothes. Well I could not find anything & the things I did find looked horrible. I really need to stay focused so I can buy some new spring/summer clothes that will look good. Or better yet fit into some of the stuff I already have that is a bit to small. I have about 4 pairs of pants that are a bit to snug that I would love to fit into by June 1st. That is my new mini goal. I have been doing great with the exercise I just need to do great with the food.
