I have lost my mojo and really need to get it back. I have not exercised in 3 days and I have eaten like crap. The worst part is I have no desire to exercise or eat healthy. I am craving all crappy food. I have only 2 weeks till my vacation and I am not going to fit into my clothes I wanted to. At this rate I won't even fit in the clothes I am wearing now.
I totally screwed my self for weigh in. Friday night I went to a Jack N Will & drank way to many glasses of wine. When I got home I was so hungry I ate not one but 2 bowls of pasta with butter and lots of salt. Needles to say on Saturday morning I did not have a good weigh in. I gained 2.4 pounds. I am so upset with myself for ruining all my hard work for the week with one bad decision. I have accepted my fault and moved on. I will not let it get me down, and no more alcohol till my vacation!.
I am still going strong. I am going on day 3 of exercise (which I will do after work) and I have not eaten past 8:30 since Sunday. Not eating after 8:30 is kind of hard because we eat dinner between 7:30-8:00 most nights, so I did not get to have my evening snack last night. I guess that is a good thing, not that my snacks are all that bad it is usually a ice cream pop or Jell-O something that is 2-3 points. Yesterday for exercise I did a new video that I bought off eBay. It is Jari Love extremely ripped. It was a good workout I sure sweated a lot. The video was about 40 minutes with abs. (you can choose between 2 30 minute workouts or 1 hour long, I started with the first 30 minute one). I then did the treadmill for 25 minutes. Today I will go to the gym after work.
How can it be Monday already. The weekends just fly by. I made my first week goal of working out 6 days. I think taking a set day off, in my case Sunday helps me. I know I have to work out every other day if I take Sunday off. Other times if I just say I will work out 6 days a week then everyday I am like should I take today off? This week my goal will be to exercise 6 days and to not eat anything after 8:30 pm.
I so did not want to get up and come to work this morning, but I did. I am happy to say my eating/exercising has been right on the last 3 days. Yesterday I went to the gym and did weights (I am already sore) and the elliptical for 30 minutes. I then went home & took Ben (my dog) for a walk. I told my husband I am not cooking much red meat for the next month. We are going to have chicken and pork. He was not happy at first but he got over it. I am really trying to eat more healthy filling foods. I already stopped buying the 100 calorie packs, so for snacks we have fruit, almonds or fiber one bars. I also made some sugar free Jell-O this week, it is really good and only 10 calories per serving.
I have heard of having an anchor to help with motivation. I am now sporting a bracelet that will be my anchor. I am expecting the bracelet to remind me of my goals & what I want to achieve. So far it has been working (but I have only had it on for 1/2 an hour). Yesterday I went for a walk at lunch, went to the gym for 50 minutes on the elliptical, did some abs then went for a walk last night. My eating yesterday was right on. I even had 2 extra points so I had a glass of skim milk. Tonight I am either going to do weights or a spinning class.
It started out with 4 months to lose about 20 pounds before my vacation. Well it is now only a month away and I think I lost 1-2 pounds. Not the way I wanted it to go, but it is my own fault. Yesterday started my month of being strict. I am not going to make or accept any excuses. I will exercise 6 days a week and I will stick to my points. I really want to be able to fit into the clothes that fit me 2 years ago. I need to fit into them or I will not have enough clothes to bring with me on vacation. I am still debating on buying PX90. I think it will be good but I really only want it for the weight lifting parts. I think I am good with the cardio I do now so I am not sure it is worth it. I did order a weight DVD off eBay the other day it is by Jari Love. I hope it is good.
Friday after work I decided to dust the cobwebs off my bike & give it a ride. I went to a bike trail I have never tried before. It was so hilly, I was ready to give up after 10 minutes, but I did not I did the whole trail which was 9.75 miles. It took me about 1 hour 15 minutes ( with a stop at a fruit/veg stand). I ended up burning a little over 600 calories. I was very happy I stuck to it & gave the hills a licking. I am defiantly going to try to start blogging more often. I think it keeps me in check.
First off let me say I am sorry I have not been posting as often as I would like to. I have gotten so busy at work I have actually had to work overtime. I do not like to work the 40 hours I have to never mind more but hay the work is not going to do it self.
I have been doing good with the exercise but not so hot with the food. I really have to get on the food wagon & stick to it. I went to Weight Watchers on Wednesday and was down 2 pounds. (ya me) However since then I have not stuck to my points. Saturday I got my but kicked at the gym, usually class is 2 hours but he went over by 15 minutes. I burnt over 1200 calories then I went home & mowed the lawn. (trying to burn some of the 12,000 calories I probably at on Friday). My membership for the personal training classes ran out on Saturday so I am on my own. I am going to see how it goes on my own for awhile. If I am not doing well I will re join. It is just so expensive. I am thinking of getting PX90, anyone have it or tried it? Give me your opinions.
I had a good weigh in last night, lost 2 pounds. I was happy with that seeing we went camping and I did not get in as much exercise as I would have liked to. Now I just have to get through all the 4Th of July parties this weekend.
I have been on Weight Watchers for almost 3 years. I started off great I lost 60 pounds. Now I find myself slacking & losing then gaining the same 20 pounds over & over. I have had a weight problem all my life. I am going to lose the last 50 pounds this time. I will not stop till it is dropped.
