once again...

Well, here I am, again...miserable.  Fatter than I have ever been.  I am at the point of not being able to do things well/comfortable.  Like....sitting here, I feel like I am beginning to slowly suffocate.  Just got out of the tub.  If I gain much more, I wont fit.  I am already squeezed in as tight as I can be, just about...can barely reach all areas of my legs to shave...so I hadn't in awhile....In my profile picture..I weighed about 211...gained that, t

Workout Bloopers

Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 9:07 PM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings
After reading that during the progesterone phase of my 'cycle', I would need to push myself to do more exercise regardless the mental resistance...I proved my tenacity!   My husband and I stole away for a couple of hours to go to the y.  He likes to swim.  I usually do my workout, and join him in the pool area to sit in the hot tub, then go.  Well as I was getting ready, I took off my flip-flops and began to dig for the socks I knew I had packed.  I brought my shoes...

Reason for Everything

Saturday, April 10, 2010 at 11:07 AM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings
I think that everyone ought to read the Natural Health Magazine, May/April 2010 issue article Sync With Your Cycle.  It has made so much sense to me.  I have known like probably alot of women my age, that around my monthly there exists different phases. I used to think there was PMS, period, and nothing.  But I realize more and more, especially the more consistent I keep my behavior and eating patterns, that there are definitely days I can count on being tired, energized, "fr...

The WEIGHT is coming off!!

Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 1:18 PM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings

Wow, after all this focus, hard work, watching it on our Galinburg trip over the weekend, my scale went up today.  I got on 3 times and got 3 different weights, so probably the scale is not working, but if it is, I don't get it.  I am at peace with it, but it is frustrating. By at peace I mean, I know I am eating well.  I am not going hungry.  I am making good choices and staying active.  I am getting compliments about my hair, the glow I have, and how nice I look.&nb

For a couple of days, I have been getting a message....Joyce Meyer said, "If you will do what you can do, God will do what you cannot do."  An article in the Fitness magazine I took to today's YMCA trip (GO ME!!)  had our olympic skier, can't remember her name, but it quoted her saying something like 'I know if I do the work, results will follow'.  Thanks, God!  I get it!!

Workin' on it!

Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 3:30 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Starting a commitment to myself for this workout.  I do 30 minutes on recumbent bike, 30 minutes on elliptical, ab workout, stretching, and sometimes arm strength training.  Takes about 2 1/2 hours.  I am lovin' it.  I play certain songs to get me to a higher exertion level. I really am getting into the music, too.  It makes it fun to kinda move to the music on the elliptical, though I am sure I make some onlookers laugh.  It also makes time go faster.  I once ...

(Stressed out today.  Having a meltdown.  Am  hopeful, last meltdown resulted in 12 pound loss--A YEAR AGO.) 

I am so mad at everything food.  It's always about the food, eating it, preparing it, serving it, cleaning up after it, shopping for it, not having it, having it, church suppers, family get togethers, girl scout meetings, school parties...AAAHHHHH! Always the food.

When am I going to ever make it about me?  I see it.  I w...

Going Forward

Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at 10:31 AM filed under Weight Loss postings
Well, today is my birthday.  Happy birthday to me.  I am hoping to give myself a good workout today, and the opportunity to make it a step further on this journey.  I love the way that I can feel my abs after working out when I go to practice and sing.  It gives me more control over my air, therefore my vocals are better, edgier, more precise.  I thought about how losing weight will make me feel better about how I look when I perform, and my overall confidence on stage, ...

No More Lost Time

Okay, so my week started out wierd.  If the church hadn't sent all those pies home with us, I wouldn't have had a problem.....right?!?!  So the church DID send home many wonderful pieces of pie home with us, it was all downhill after the luncheon.  A blessing, but nevertheless a test--one I failed at miserably.  And, so for two days, I kept eating some pie here, some there, and I have no idea how many calories I consumed....suffice to say, I earned my way back to my starting ...

Love the Food Tracker!

Friday, November 13, 2009 at 1:28 PM filed under Diet & Nutrition postings
It is so great to use the food tracker.  I know I want to hit about 400 calories each for 3 meals and 1 snack.  Even though I went ahead and had the pb cookies (habit) I can just skip the afternoon snack, and still be ok.  Maybe a sloppy plan, but a plan.  It makes such a difference to be able to log what I consume and have this wonderful tool to tell me calorie, fat, protein, carb, and any other kind of count I'd want to know.
