My mission is to exercise 5-6 days a week and eat mostly whole foods. Processed foods are just making me crave more sugar. It is going to be hard this weekend as we are going on a road trip to MI. My Niece & Nephew (twins) are making there first communion on Saturday. I am sure there will be a lot of temptations but I am going to stick to my guns. My husband is on board so I do have his support which helps a bunch.
Yesterday was not so good. I did not end up exercising or tracking my food. I am not proud of myself for not even lasting a week. I have already tracked my breakfast/lunch for today. The good thing is I did not go days without tracking I got right back to it. I still have not been able to take my picture. I can not find my camera and the camera on my phone does not take a full body picture when I am holding it. I will find the camera this weekend and take a picture. I am also planning on making a progress poster. I am going to put pictures of my progress, inspiration pictures and sayings.
Last week I started exercising again, this week I am starting Weight Watchers again.I am doing the online plan.My Husband is also doing which is nice and will help with sticking to it.I like the new WW points plus plan because it helps you get in more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and proteins.I ended up exercising 5 days last week and this week is starting off good also.I went to the gym this morning and did the elliptical for 45 minutes.I will take that picture tonight I promise.On a side note I got a new car over the weekend.A 2011 Nissan Sentra with all the bells and whistles.Sun roof, navigation, blue tooth and XM radio.I love it.
Morning, I finally went back to the gym yesterday. I had anxiety about going back, will I be able to do it, will people look at me and think wow she gained weight. I don’t know what I was so worried about, I was able to do 45 minutes on the elliptical and I did not see anyone staring at me. I tend to over think things and let it get in the way of what I am going after. Well no more. I exercised for 3 days already this week that is the same amount I exercised all month this past month. I am fully committed to this lifestyle change. I am sick and tired of being overweight and tired all the time. I promise I will post a picture I just have to take one. I did weight myself yesterday 244.5 not good, not good at all.
I finally got back on the treadmill this morning. Only got in 35 minutes but it is better then nothing. I was looking at my calendar this morning and I only exercised 3 times this month. That is horrible; I should be exercising 4-5 times a week not 3 times a month. I have a couple things motivating me to lose this weight. We are going to Alaska in August and going on a helicopter/dog sledding excursion. The weight limit to not have to buy a second seat is 250. I am about 245 (will weigh myself tonight) and I want to be way below the weight limit. I also have a doctor’s appointment at the end of June and I want to lose weight by then also.
I have been away for quit sometime and I have missed you all. I have fallen so far off the wagon the good thing is I am ready to pick myself up. Yesterday was not a good day who am I kidding this year has not been good. I gave up sweets for Lent and yesterday I think I ate more sweets then I would have if I had been eating them all along. I feel like total crap today. I am so disappointed in myself. I have not been able to stick to healthy eating and I have not exercised regularly since September. I think my first fall came last March with the passing of my mom. I have just been in a funk since then. I am ready to put all my disappointment behind me and get back on track. I really need to make a lifestyle change. I am going to get back to exercising and eating healthy. Tonight I will take a picture and post as my new starting point. I found in the past blogging really helped me to stay on track so I will be writing more regularly now.
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.
