New Weigh in day

It has been a while since I actually did a weigh in. This past 2 weeks I have been sick still. I think it is from trying this slim fast diet. Don’t think my stomach likes whatever is in those shakes. This morning I was down to 281.4 fully dressed!! So I am guessing a normal weigh in would be about 279. Yay!! I would feel better about this loss but I haven’t been to the gym or really eaten anything for a week unless my stomach tells me I HAVE to. Can’t wait for this yuck to go away and then I can get back to working out and eating healthy again. Food right now just makes me nauseous, even thinking about it. Sucks!! So if I don’t post again next week you will know why 😦

checking in!!

Sorry that I haven’t been around much lately. I have been trying to keep myself busy and have been!! This last week I worked 3 of my jobs and even had a snow day in there. I also decided that I need to change my weigh in day. I think I will start doing Sundays and I will start that next week. I know I haven’t really lost anything this past week because I have been eating crappy with being busy. I tried doing the slim fast diet but that didn’t go over very well because I would forget to eat the snacks (plus kinda broke at the moment) and then would be starving and want to eat a lot. So I am planning on trying again this week with making sure I snack since I won’t be as busy.

I got out with the family tonight and did a walk around the neighborhood. First time this year we have done that. It was really nice to do but my boys told me they were going to die when we got home, lol!! I didn’t think we went that far but it added up so that to me means I can skip the gym tonight since we did it outside together. Would you agree?

Weigh in day

This past week has not been very nice to me.  I have only worked out once in a week.  Trying to change my workout times from night to morning did not go well.  So this week I have only lost 0.4. As of tonight I am going back to working out at night instead of trying to get up early, I am just not a morning person.  I have been doing pretty good on not having coffee though.  I did drink some over the weekend but still stayed within my calories.  Oh well, here is top hoping next week I am down another 5 to make up for this week!!

weigh in

I am weighing in a day early because I don’t think I will remember in the morning. So my last weigh in was 291.6, and this mornings weigh in was 287.4. Really proud of my 4.2 lb loss!! So now I have passed my mini goal. I no longer have a mini goal. I have a major goal of 275. I have also started working out in the morning instead of at night because I find now that I have a hard time falling asleep. I did work out Monday morning but didn’t this morning. The only reason is because when my alarm started going off, my legs started cramping. I was not going to go try to work out with my legs cramping. So I filled my day with LOTS of water and hopefully I will get there again in the morning but we will see what this crappy weather has in store first. I am loving the fact that the 2 new pairs of size 22 pants that I bought, I now need a belt because they are getting baggy on my already!! Kinda hating that too because they cost enough money!! Well, I gotta go get the baby in the bath. Have a good night everyone!!

Getting back after a few days.

i finally got going again . It took a few days but I feel pretty good now today. last Week i took an extra day because my calves were Killing me. then i had my pampered Chef party. Saturday my husband and I had a date night . Sunday I finished redoing my bathroom. Paint , mirror, window covers. Was a workout in itself . Today I got a new phone. I am actually hand writing this post. l love it!! we will see how I am feeling in the morning after having 4 days Off and then doing 30 Mins on the elliptical .

Wednesday check-in

This mornings weigh in was 293.0. So a loss of 1.4 lbs!! I am happy with that because I have been eating crappy (girl scout cookies) but have been working out good. Last nights workout was awesome. I didn’t get the circuit in because my kids wanted to hang out with me before bed but I was dripping when I was done on the elliptical. I just finished dinner, so I am letting that settle a bit before I head over to the gym again. I have gone to the gym for 3 nights in a row (including tonight) and I am not sure if I will make it there tomorrow because of a conference call for work. I know I won’t make it there Friday night because I am having a Pampered Chef party and I will be drinking a couple glasses of wine. Anyways, time to spend some time with my kids.

Girl scout cookies….

Will be the death of me!! I have been slacking the last few days just because of being so busy in the evening. I have been eating lots of carbs too!! It is horribly good though!! So lately I have only been doing 25 mins on the elliptical and then one set of reps on the weight circuit. Tonight because of missing 4 days and eating crap for a few days, I bumped it up to 30 mins. OMG!! I was soaking when I was done!! I haven’t done that for a while, damp but not soaking!! It felt really good!! I am back at it. I will not quit!! I will change my body and make myself happy with myself again!!

One other big thing for me is shopping. I HATE it. Like with a passion. I would never think to go into stores like Vanity or Glik. They have such cute clothes but for a big girl like me, I could never wear it because they are tighter fitting and I have rolls. Well, on Valentine’s night, one of my closest friends invited us out to dinner with her and her husband. We met them at the mall. She wears all those cute clothes from places like that. I told her I think I might have lost enough weight to look for something. Guess what!?!? I bought 4 tank tops and 2 t-shirts from Vanity!! I still have to throw on my spanx to smooth out my rolls but I can fit into their clothes now!! It was a huge thing for me to be able to do that. I am very proud of the changes in my body!!

Well my little one is crying for me to bring her to bed. Have a great night everyone!!
