I have not fallen off the wagon

Sorry for the silence fellow bloggers and readers.  I have been knee deep in paper writing and family drama.  That leaves little time for blogging so I will try and catch up.

Family drama—Well seems my partner has decided that we should no longer be together.  This has upped my gym time.  Poor Treadmill has had my name all over it.  Which caused a 3.5 inch drop off my body this week.  I really need to get on the scale.  Maybe Wednesday.

So here are the numbers

-.5 inchs off my neck sense Jan 1

-2 inches off my Chest (that could have stayed LOL)

-1.25 inches off my abs

-6.5 off my hips

-1.5 off my thighs

gained 1 inch on my biceps :0)

So all together I have lost 11.75 inches..that is with a few weeks of up and downs!

Those are inches I will never see again on my body.

Hope you all have a great day!  Ill be back with you after midterms!

The Scale

I haven’t been on one going two weeks due to a few things….one I don’t have one at home and two my doc said if the inches are coming off don’t worry so much about the scale.  So I have been putting it off.  Maybe next week I will get on the scale at the gym.  However a friend of mine posted this picture and I wanted to share it with you all.

If I had a scale I would be writing this on it today!

Be true to you !

Till Next Time….

 

31 Days In

After 31 days I am eating better and feeling better health wise but I feel a bit unsettled.  I am still losing inches and I am very thankful for that.  If I didn’t tell you all I am down another inch.   Happy noises go here!  Still only the 4 pounds and I guess I should be thankful for that.  I know what the problem is.  I am not drinking enough water, changing that.  I got a water bottle :0)  If I have it with me I will drink it.  That and I eat to many carbohydrates.  I know this about me.  One change at a time.

I have had a great month.  I am feeling good and looking thinner.  I have a few new projects in the works.  I got my taxes done today.  usually this is a big event that takes place the day before they are due.  So thankful that is over and I got my financial aid paperwork done today as well.  that is the way to end January.  On a positive note!

I am ready for February.  One day at a time.  One step and one breathe……that’s how I am gonna roll!

Till Next Time……

Doing with-out then….

As we all know in our culture we celebrate everything with Food.  Promotion…..food…..graduation….food…Birthday….food.  Well my sister had a Bday this week and we as a family celebrated it yesterday.  Now I have spent 22 days trying to eat better and stay away from sweets for the most part.  I do love my Skinny Cows but why on Gods green earth did I think I could share a cupcake with my partner….BAD IDEA!  Now I want more.  I knew better but I let her talk me into just a bite.  Now I want another.  The good news is there are no more and I don’t have it in the house so I am saved there but I can’t stop thinking about it.

I know that I can have a treat now and then but I now know that cupcakes are more of my weakness then I thought.  Don’t worry my will power is strong but I will have to so not even smell them if they are passed my way…lol

All in all it was a good weekend.  I’ll post measurements later I just needed to vent on the cupcakes!

Till Next Time

Week Three

It has been an interesting three weeks.  First off let me just say that this is going better than I could have expected.  This week was a test.  There ware cookies everywhere at work and I only tried a bite of one. (talk about temptation) I pretty much stayed under calories all week. Most likely not today but I am allowing myself a day of what ever within reason.

But anyway to the point this weeks results are in:

4 pound weight lose in 3 weeks

-9.5 inches off my body this year already as well!

Hope you all are sticking with it!  This is our year!  We can and will do this.

This next time….

Finally 1 Pound

As the title of my blog states I finally lost a pound after 19 days.  I know the doctor said if I am feeling better and things are moving around then it is good…but we (women that is) know that the scale is our nemesis.  I am thankful that the pound is gone and is never allowed to return :0)

It has been a crappy week….truck issues, that caused money issues, that caused not being able to go the gym issues…but I am not letting that stop me.  Lucky for me the gym is already paid for and I can go up there and walk off my frustrations.  Felt good this morning to turn up the tunes and just walk.  So I will call this a win day and make it continue there my work day this afternoon.

I am making this dream a reality….

SUPRISE

Just a quick update….

I live in Ohio and it is just now starting to get cold and up until today I was not able to button my jacket.  I usually just threw it on because the wind here has been cold but today without thinking I buttoned my coat and WAAAALAAAA I could button it!  I started doing the happy dance and realized I was in the middle of the library.  YEAH ME.  May not be a big deal for you bit let me just say it made my day!

Just wanted to share!

New Toy

So I decided I was going to start using a pedometer.  It arrived today

It is set and ready to use.  I am going to challenge myself every day to walk farther.  I think this will keep me moving.  That and I will see just how far it is from my car to my first class.

Look out shoes I am going to be putting you to the test!

Doc update

Today I had to go to the doc and get my BP med refills.  Went better than expected.  My BP was great 104/74.  The best it has been in 3 months.  This being said the meds are working.  I talked to her about this life change and how I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing or not being that I hadn’t lost any weight in 2 weeks.  She asked me a very interesting question.  She asked if I felt better.  I told her yes.  She said is it easier to work out…again my answer was yes…..she said where is the problem.  Keep doing what you are doing and then you can adjust if you stop seeing results.  So I will keep controlling my portions, eat more veggies, drink more water, and keep going to the gym.  Not that I was going to stop I was just looking for another way to lose the weight.

SO tomorrow I will get up have some breakfast and then head to the gym.

Till Next Time….

Another day

I am looking at the 1200 calories that I have been trying to stay under and I am wondering if my body is thinking I am starving it.  For 2 weeks I have been under except for 1 day.   I have lost no weight.  I am a bit discouraged I wont lie but I am looking into eating more veggies and fruit and drinking more water.  I am at least eating better which has to be better for me anyway.  I am talking to the doctor on Monday about anything she may have to say but I know I am doing the right thing for me.  I do feel better.  I am loosing inches all though the scale says no weight lose.  I just need to see it move.  It is what we use to see progress, the scale that is.

My boss is doing weight watchers.  I would possible do that if it didn’t cost so much.  But it does help that there isn’t all the junk around work.

I am not discouraged although it does sound that way.  I just needed to vent.  I am in it to win it!  This is my year and I am going to lose the weight and I am going to get healthy!  I AM!
