Day 7 aka tomorrow we weigh

•September 20, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Ok so I am weighing myself tomorrow and I would like to lose 50 lbs by then. lol Just Kidding but I would like to lose something. I believe I have been good (with the exception of one day) with my eating. Today was no exception. I am moody however and it is not helping my interactions with people. Although that might be bc of my womens time. Anywho its a great day to window shop and not waste any money.

Goodnight Day 7 tomorrow we work. (groans and sighs)

Day 6 aka I need to get rid of my what if I drop 6 sizes clothing

•September 19, 2010 • Leave a Comment

So today wasn’t a bad day at all wasn’t starving or craving crazy stuff thanks to ww. But I am looking around at my closet and the bin that are stacked up to the ceiling with my what if clothes and I think I need to do some purging. The problem is I really think I can get to a size 8 and not have it be uncomfortable. A size ten for sure. Now if I can get rid of my size 16 clothing (bc I dropped weight not bc I went up) then I would do so in a heartbeat. So I make a guarantee to the internet universe. If I not under 210 by the end of September than I will get rid of it. That is definitely manageable only 7 pounds in less than 3 weeks. Ok maybe 201, that way I will keep it under a safe 2 pounds a week. Sidenote I make 32 next month and I am not the sleek fit woman I planned on being at that age. While that is a setback it isn’t going to make me lose focus. I want a fit lifestyle and its a daily change towards lifetime goals.

Goodnight Size 8 and 10 (I have some really cute clothes)

Sidenote: I swear before I lost all the weight I used to look in stores thinking if I were that size I could wear this. Then I got that size and all the clothing sucked in the windows. Just always thought that was funny.

Day 5 aka wow I ate a lot yesterday

•September 18, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Ok so I spent today updating my list with stuff I forgot I ate. Still wasn’t horrible but wasn’t great either. I realize how easy it is to just snack and forget what you ate and then say I don’t know why I am gaining weight I hardly eat anything. Today wasn’t a bad day I snacked healthy when I didn’t have time to fix something (although I had the “I am hungry wait fried chicken can be healthy right?” thoughts). I signed up for swim classes so I am excited and now that my hair is short I don’t have to worry about anything but my form. I am super excited. I have also been looking up introductory ┬ásteps to triathlons online. So I will be starting that Monday.

I know these blog are short I thought about going into other things in my life (and believe me there are plenty) but this is just for my triathlon goal which includes weight loss. I figure it will pick up the more I get involved in the workouts.

Day 5 done.

Day 4

•September 17, 2010 • Leave a Comment

So today was a good and bad day. First the bad…. I ate a lot of junk food today and I felt physically bloated and horrible. Now that I have confessed here is the good I wrote down everything I ate in ww and it wasn’t as bad as I thought. I normally do write down the foolishness I do. I just start over the next day like it never happened like the guilty little secret. I owned up to it and turns out it wasn’t even worth time in jail for it. However tomorrow I will be at the gym to try to make up for it. ┬áHave a great night day 4.

p.s. I am close to getting a coach. cross fingers.

Day 3

•September 16, 2010 • Leave a Comment

So I am really happy today. I got up and worked out. Ok at first I got up at 12:47am thinking I was late working out. lol But I got back up at 6:00am and actually worked out. I am proud of me if no one else is. I also have been following ww and today I wasn’t really hungry but I made sure I ate so I wouldn’t be starving the next day. That is weird for me I never had too much to eat on a diet of sorts. Day 3 is done.

Day 2 aka “Someone just take the money”

•September 15, 2010 • Leave a Comment

So today was a ok eating day. I am on the road a lot and it is hard not to dive into junk food. But let me complain for a moment. I am trying to find a swim coach and apparently that is hard as hell. I am calling all over this city and not getting anything back. I am like I will pay I just really want to get started with the swimming. Obviously this is my moment of learning patience. It is 8pm (almost). My plan is to be in bed by 9 and up by 5pm. Cross your fingers that I will do it.

Goodnight day 2

Day 1

•September 14, 2010 • Leave a Comment

So I had surgery and have been sick for the past few months. Now I am still sick (kind of) but I have to get up and work out. I made three goals:

1. to lose weight

2. to get fit

3. to prepare for my first triathlon (aka I have to get in swim shape)

This blog is real short but I have been busy tonight. So in short I have food at my hotel and enough workout clothes for two weeks. Possible problems: I am in meetings away from office which causes me to eat lunch out. So will monitor that.

I joined WW too so will let you know. Day 2 starts in 32 minutes gotta go to bed goodnight.

ok maybe you dont want to hear this

So yesterday was stressful to me bc of my eating. I kept eating chocolate non-stop. I was like this weight is never going to come off. In addition I lost it on someone and almost lost it on this lady at the grocery store for trying to rearrange my stuff on the belt for maximum benefit. Now while I need my personal space I am not out and out mean to people esp the elderly. I realize now that my woman’s time is coming and now everything makes sense. I am relieved but this doesn’t change that I need to get control of my cravings.

A new Day still means that I have a lot of work to do.

So in my mind I planned that as soon as I move to my new place that has a great gym in them and a workout room in my bedroom then the pounds will just melt off starting now. Well that is not the case. What is the case is that I am learning that I need order in my life to be able to start working out. This means that all the boxes that are packed need to be placed in it right place. It also means that I need to plan my meals to take in consideration realistic stuff like my sweet tooth at least until I ween myself off of it. It also means that I need to make time to workout and sleep. I have a lot of work to do if I am trying to change my lifestyle. I don’t expect everything to change over night but it would be great if it did. I wish that diet pills were an option for me but I do care about what I put into my body despite what I look like.

I did my weekly measurement and let me say they will never make a song off my measurements. My weight is 218.8, there I documented how big I am. It is scary the thought that I don’t have control over what others seem to do with ease. I am not an emotional eater I just like eating junk food but to for change to occur sometime you have to fake it until you make it. One big change I will make is to make sure I have enough vegetables and fruit that chocolate isn’t an option. Lets see if it works.

Meal Planning

So I have started my blog and I just know this will be a piece of cake. Then I try to plan meals for the week, which isn’t as hard in theory, however I need to take into consideration that it is a lot harder than it looks. I want chocolate but I don’t need it so what is the compremise. I think its supposed to be something called moderation but I never met that person. I will do it and let you know how it works for me.
