WTG Chimmy on throwing out the coke!
Sorry you're feeling frustrated today (((HUGS))) I know its hard to see but you're doing great! It took a long time to gain your weight I'm sure, you have to give it time to lose it too
I seriously need to find that Sugar addict book. When I have a bunch of sugar I feel bad and when I don't I end up with a huge headache and feel worse I've gotta find a way to get away from it!
Yea - sugar is seriously awful stuff. This wk has really shown me how drastically my body reacts to it too. It's a great book so far, very eye opening
And thanks - that's the stupid part, I KNOW I'm doing good, 2.6lbs is a great loss esp. when nursing but my emotions are wacked today lol
Speaking of which my cycle is going weird on me, I'm spotting today - I NEVER spot mid cycle, like honestly, never - well okay once in the past 3 years, and it was just a dot nothing like this. My chart basically looks dead this month compared to previous months - and when I checked my cervix it feels weird, emotionally I almost feel like af is going to come again. I hate my body - Seriously. it's so damn stupid.
So my guess is that's why I'm being all emtional, and silly about this weight loss thing.
Well. Now I'm full on bleeding - I just ended my period 8 days ago. I should be O'ing today not bleeding!
No wonder I've been having a hard time losing weight.
Well now I'm back to no spotting OR bleeding - seriously my body likes to mess with my head lol
I kind of slacked today, ate some pizza, had some dessert tonight but I'm ready for tomorrow.
Bring it on.
Oh Julia I'm sorry things are so frustrating. It sounds like your cycle is really giving you a run for your money Just take things one day at a time or even one hour if that's what works. This is a life-long process not a quick fix, ya know? You can do it. Just don't be so hard on yourself
Thanks Tracy ~ your wonderful. I was an emotional mess yesterday & the few days prior to that too lol Hormones can be so mean sometimes!!
This morning has been wonderful! Perhaps there's perks to bleeding mid cycle (not sure whether to roll my eye's here or laugh) I'm down a lb this morning and OUT OF THE 230'S!!!!!!!!!!!
I woke up this morning and felt great, I almost wonder if my body was going through a cleanse w/ all this water I'm drinking & exercising. Emotionally I feel more sound too and I looking back I can see I really was a big ball of mess these last few days - totally out of character for me at this point in my cycle, so I'm almost sure my body was flushing itself out.
Anyhow I worked out doing Leslie Sansones Walk and Kick - it's a mixture of walking and kick boxing and it was SO MUCH fun!! Kicked my butt that's for sure, but gosh it was fun I think I'm going to do it tomorrow.
I've also realised, in looking back and being more realistic instead of emotional lol That I have lost really well - I didn't actually start being serious about this weight loss thing until Tuesday or Wed. of last week I think - so not even a full week & I'm down 3.6lbs, so honestly that IS GOOD it's almost a full 4lbs!
Well I'd better get off my duff n' shower - we have playgroup today, I am so excited to get out of the house. It's also my sweet bears birthday today, I need to call him! I hate that he's out of town I miss him and his snuggles. Only 2.5 more days though and he's back home!! Hurrayy!
I'm so glad you're feeling better Hormones can be a biatch, huh? I have been very blue the past few days (I'm right at mid-cycle) Maybe you're onto something with the water/cleansing thing? That kick-boxing sounds so fun and like an awesome workout! You're right, you have done fabulously!!
I hope your dh is home before you know it. I'm a mess whenever my dh has to leave
Anyway, have a great day Julia!!
Glad you're feeling better Chimmy! (((HUGS))) Yay for being out of the 230's!
Tracy ~ thanks hun, your a sweetheart. I hope your not feeling so blue today! The kick-boxing working really is a lot of fun
I'm a total mess when dh is gone, w/ as much as he travels you'd think I'd be used to it lol OH well.
Thanks dawn hun!! It's so much fun to have you around, another April 06 mama!!
Well I'm still spotting - part of me is growing concerned & part of me is really upset by it all. I worry that something bad is going on & I'm afraid to see my m/w about it, but honestly I really probably should make an appt. at this point.
On a happier note I exercised today & am eating well. Had Indian tonight, my FAVORITE kind of food - yum yum.
My SBD book came & so far it's soo interesting! I am really looking forward to doing this with dh, I also feel like it'll make us healther. I have a lot of family members who had heart problems, both my fathers parents died in their 40's/50's from heart failure, how scarry is that! So I have a lot of work ahead of me to make sure I dn't follow down that same path, at least willingly!
I'm excited for my weigh in on Monday - even if it's only a pound, it's 1 pound closer to being UNDER 200 which is my next big goal - small goal is to get to 219.
My bear is home tomorrow morning!! I can't wait to see him & catch up on our week, it's crazy how much can go on in just 7 days lol I'm also SUPER excited to start the SBD with him, I think it's going to be a wonderful, positive & permanently changing experience for us - and it's really what we need.
I weighed in this morning, still under 230 so I believe it's a true loss - makes me SO HAPPY to see it!
Seamus let me sleep in this morning until 9, so I've not exercised yet - another 30 minutes & he's down though and then I think I'm going to do my 45 minute work out, and if I still have energy I'll do my 20 minute pilates - we'll see how long Seamus sleeps.
Then I have lots of errands to run today - busy busy!
Goals from now until Monday
Drink 120oz of water - I've been hitting 80-100 latley
Exercise everday except for Sunday
Drink 3 cups of RRLT
Try and finish reading the SBD book so dh can
Continue being good with what I eat
phew! Lots of goals - but ALL realistic and attainable
