Weight Loss Goals
SW: 235.4 CW: 215.2 GW: 130-135
Mini weight loss goal:
ULTIMATE weight loss goal:
My Weight Chart:
Argh! Ticker factory is being retarded, I was updating my chart/ticker by putting in only the POBLC w/l dates but it's wiggin' out so ignore it for now, hopefully it'll let me edit past data here soon.
I'm proud of you lady, I think you've rocked it. I don't have the willpower to eliminate *anything* from my diet, let alone my yummy carbs.
Can't wait for us to have the "new me" for both of us. What do you think about having a mini goal, where if we both reach our mini goal, we go hit the mall for a new outfit or two? I'll come there or you come here, whichever. I'm sure by the time I hit my goal I'll have a tax return where I can squander a couple bucks.
:woohoo: congrats Julia!!!
Woohoo WTG on the 1lb!!!!
Chart is looking GREAT!
:woohoo: You're doing great!!! I agree with Nadine, it's hard to give up all the yummy stuff. *sigh*
Thanks you guys
Nadine ~ Hay darling! Thanks hun I think that would be A LOT of fun!! I want to be under 200, like around 180 & then I'm going to allow myself a mini shopping spree lol I'd say I'll be there around June, HOPEFULLY.
So I'm not feeling so hot latley, I'm not sick or anything but emotionally I keep yo-yo'ing ~ I did this the last time I tried to get under 200, I was ALMOST there & then gave up, it's like there's something emotionally holding me back but I can't seem to tap into what it is, and I'm feeling frustrated with that.
Yesterday I ate horribly, didn't plan at all, and as a result I'm back up 2lbs Today I took two small bites of the boys pizza ~ dang that stuff is good too, it's a BBQ chicken style pizza ~ I'm annoyed with dh for bringing it home, he is normally SO good about what he brings to the house b/c he knows I struggle with not eating it if it's something I like. *sigh* At least I didn't snarf down an entire slice or two, but still! Instead I took my butt downstairs & started typing here lol When the boys are done eating the rest is going into the garbage.
I keep bouncing back n' forth on whether I should phase 1 it again ~ in reading on the sbd website (not the official one) it says that the only time you should go back is if your craving things again, well I"m not sure if I'm actually craving or just being weak!? What's the difference? I'm not sure so maybe I will do phase 1 for a wk, I felt SO good after I did it the first time & had so much willpower b/c the cravings just weren't there, or they were so weak it didn't matter.
((((HUGS)))) I'm sorry you're having such a rough time.
Let me ask you something, when you start feeling hungry do you start thinking "oh man, a big fat greasy cheeseburger sounds good!" Or do you just want that big fat greasy cheeseburger because one of your kids has it and its right in front of you? The first one, to me, is what a craving is. Wanting that specific food to fill your hunger. Having a weak moment on the other hand is when you have the food in front of you and you take some because its there.
Lets do phase 1 for a week together, starting tomorrow. I could use it to ward off my recent chocolate cravings. It certainly won't hurt. What do you think?
Your so sweet
That's a good question, I'm not going out of my way to eat junk (for the most part) it's because it's right there, looks good, smells good & everyone else is eating it! lol So I take a bite, tastes good so I take another & so on .. blah So your right maybe it's not a craving nessisarily ~ still maybe I'll do phase 1 but argh I just bought a bunch of phase 2 foods! I'll phase 1 it from Lunch onwards, but am really enjoying my carb/sugar control yogurt by Dannon with some Organic whole grain cereal from Natures Path ~ so does that sound like a deal? LOL
I really do feel like I'm sinking right now & I hate that, I need to pull myself out of this! I wonder if I'm emotional because I've been pulling up a lot of memories from Seamus' birth & those early ppd days ~ I've been taking pictures of all my hypnobabies stuff so that I can sell it on ebay, I'll be putting the money into a savings account for if and when we have another ~ it's strange to think that something like this would be so emotional! I also had a bit of an OCD/Panic/Anxiety flare up last night when I was up nursing Seamus, around 3:30am or so, so my emotions/hormones are bouncing right now & I really hope that they even out here soon. I need to up my O3's.
:bighug: I'm sorry you're going through a rough patch right now Maybe when you feed the kids you should go to another room? Is that possible? Kinda an "out of sight-outta mind" type thing? Or have your snack or meal ready first and eat that so that you're not hungry? I know you're strong enough to get through this. Don't let yourself get down because it's hard right now. You will overcome this and then be even stronger!!
Well my day has just been brightened! My sister who is 29wks pg came to visit today, it's her day off work & she had an appointment with Danielle, our midwife ~ it was fun to see her & get caught up ~ she mentioned to me that Danielle had said to give Seamus birthday hugs & kisses (I love how she always remembers details like that), and mentioned how great I looked when she last saw me, that she could tell I'd lost al ot of weight & so on, it really made me smile b/c at that point I'd only lost 15lbs! lol wwahooo
Anyhow ~ today is shapping up to be much better, & I'm slowly pulling myself out of this rutt that I'm in.
Tracy ~ oh! I just saw your post, we must've been posting at the same time
Thanks hun, I normally don't have much of a struggle when it comes to fixing the kids food but man these last few days have been a bear! You'd think af was around the corner, not ovulation LOL Anyhow ~ onward & upward, right!? lol
I don't know, Julia. I find during my cycle (when I am getting ready to ovulate) I have cravings!
Ooh so glad to hear your day is perking up!
Maybe that's it then, I don't remember being like this around ovulation but in all honesty I never paid attention! lol
:bighug: Smack your DH for bringing in naughty food and punishing you. :biglaugh:
Seriously, it's ok. We all slip up. Heck, I'm awful at sticking to a diet, so I just eat less and work out harder. It's just something that works for me. KWIM?? We aren't all made from the same mold, so what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another. Like Tracy suggestted, maybe try eating before the kids (I know, that's hard) or maybe even just waiting until after they're done before you eat, but maybe go into another room. :bighug: We're all here for you, to help eachother get through all the rough spots. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!
Thanks so much Becci! I don't know why I'm so emotional lately, I'm going to chalk it up to having Seamus turn one & me ovulating, that sounds good :biglaugh:
I think I'm going to try and get in a protien shake or something, as I'm making the kids lunches ~ will do this for the next week & then hopefully things will calm down for me again. It's tuff though, to always be making someone something to eat and 99.9% of the time you can't eat the same stuff! lol
I'm hoping to get out of this plateau here soon too, for some reason they really wear me down! I need to get stronger when it comes to this.
Thanks again for all of your support ~ you guys are seriously the best, I KNOW I would not be able to get through things like this if it weren't for this journal & your support. :bighug:
Before I forget ~
120oz of water
no exercise ~ dh had to work late
ate horribly lol
120oz of water
no exercise AGAIN, I was SO looking forward to it too, dh working late
Chimmy I have to kinda laugh, you're doing stage 1 lunches but phase 2 dinners, and I'm the opposite. I usually have SBD wraps for lunch, but just meat and veggies with dinner. I also have my daily protein bar, which I must admit would be very hard for me to give up!
Thats so great that you got to see your sister, AND that she complimented you! Glad it brightened up your day
You'll get out of this plateau (((HUS))) Just keep working at it! We're here to cheer you on!
lol somedays I'm all over the place, I'm in this "My day starts out really well & ends really crappy" phase, I'm determined to break that today!
Stepped on the scale again, I'm still at 215.2 ~ it DID say 214.6 for a split second & I got all excited, so now I'm annoyed & am determined to see 214 for good LOL So that's my modivation today.
I found a breakfast that I love, it's that Dannon yogurt with the Natures Path Cereal, there are 3 different kinds that are good & carb friend. Gotta figure out snacks, lunch & dinner tonight so that I can get back on track ~ might take the boys to the zoo today too, so I need to plan for that.
Today WILL be a good day!
Today WILL be a good day Julia!!
Going to the zoo sounds like a great idea! Fun and it would be exercise too :razz:
Well, we went to the Zoo & had A TON of fun, the weather was perfect, not too cold not too hot & almost all of the animals were out & active, the boys had a blast & it was nice to get out, my two sisters came along as well. I packed a lunch for everyone so that I could control was I was eating, and so that the boys wouldn't get over hungry ~ I was also able to get in 80oz of water during the 4hrs that we were there :thumbsup:
We might head back up there tomorrow morning, they have a 10:30 training session with the big cats I think it would be a lot of fun to watch!
Well, gotta figure out what to do for dinner & go pick up dh so I'd better head. He'll also be home at the normal time tonight, so I can head to the gym ~ I'm so excited about that!!
It sounds like a perfect day! YAY!!
ITA, that sounds like a great day!!
It really has been a good day
I got in an AWSOME workout tonight too ~ 63 minutes hard cardio, and 30 minutes weights ~ my arms are going to be sore I just know it lol
63 min cardio - lots of steep incline & fast pace
30 min weights - upper body
Ate really well :thumbsup:
I felt a change in my body this evening as well, I think I'm going to be out of this plateau it feels like I'm starting to lose again, the next few days will tell.
I was worried that I would see spotting again when I got home tonight, but didn't ~ yay! I've only spotted once this cycle so far, that makes me SO happy!
That sounds like such an awesome day Chimmy! WTG! Keep this up and I bet you're out of your plateau in no time!
Now you have me wanting to go to the Zoo, lol.
That is an awesome workout! wow!! I'm so glad you're feeing good! I bet that weight starts dropping in no time. It's odd how that works but building muscle does seem to slow the fat burning process down. I bet you're feeling leaner even when the scale isn't showing a loss, huh? :razz:
Well I was right, I'm down a lb this morning weighed in at 214.2 ~ was SO hoping to see 213 but I am happy with the loss, hopefully by Monday or Tuesday I will see that number.
Yes, I am feeling a lot leaner so chances are I probably am losing fat but I'm also gaining muscle so it evens out, which means my scale doesn't show a loss for awhile ~ I've been through this before, don't know why I can't see it that way when I'm in the midst of it lol
Tomorrow is Seamus' big birthday party, I'm nervous lol I'm off to the bakery this afternoon to put in a custom order for his cakes (one small one for him, a big one for everyone), and then to Costco to get the fixings for our BBQ ~ thankfully I can eat the hamburgers, but oohh chips, cake, ice cream, rootbeer ~ I'll survive though!
Awesome news Chims!!
Ooh have fun tomorrow!!!!
How exciting about his bbq. You'll do fine.
Thanks you guys I think the bbq is going to be a lot of fun, and eating wise it will go well!
So, I'm thinking my body needs a change, or perhaps my brain does. I'm feeling board & stuck with where I am right now, and I'm constantly teetering on the edge of wanting to give in, or just stuff my face with food I shouldn't ~ I've had a few old familiar (although NOT welcomed) thoughts latley & those thoughts make me feel unsettled & nervous, so before I slip back into a place I don't want to be I need to figure out what my body is trying to tell me, so I can answer it in a healthy way.
In thinking about this, I thought that maybe I could go onto WW'ers for a week ~ that way I can for the most part eat what I'd like but still stay within a healthy calorie range so that I lose weight ~ it might also be the change I need in order to keep going, and then go back to sbd. I get bored easily it's just how and who I am so perhaps if I mix things up a bit I wont struggle so much.
I've also noticed that my body adjusts to certain things after awhile & in doing so the weight loss slows down, when I was on ww'res a few yrs back after about 3 months I had to start changing the number of points I ate, or else I wouldn't lose ~ as an example, I'd have to eat really low points (less calories) one day, then high points (more calories) and then medium points & after I bounced arond for awhile I'd start to lose again, so I think this is what my body is doing right now with the sbd, I have foods I like to eat so I stick with them, in the begining this allowed my body to lose weight, but now that it's used to it it's not doing that anymore, or at least at a more difficult rate. I could probably change the foods I eat but I'm honestly now really sure what I'd change to, perhaps I need to spend some more tim thinking about this.
I may also venture out into the big gender neutral weights area, that place intimidates me though lots of georgeous women & men with great bodies, might ask my brother to come along too. Tthere are more machines there than in the women's area, oh which reminds me I'd like to look up the machines they have there online, their camstar I think & in th eladies room their lady camstar machines. Anyhow ~ I'd like to mix up what I do with the weights, add some new exercises but not sure what to do. I am also really wanting to work my abs but argh that stupid book STILL isn't here, it's been almost a month *grumbles* In two weeks I'll be ordering the DVD & waist band I think ~ I can really see my body shrinking when looking in the mirrors, EXCEPT for my stomach, at least not at a rate that's making me feel satisfied.
Onto other things ~ I've eaten quite well today, short of waking up from a nap with the boys & eating a huge handful of tortilla chips with salsa, doesn't sound unhealthy but the chips have a lot of carbs, it probably could of been worse eh? lol
Well, I think I've purged my brain enough ~ waiting for Garrett to get home from scouts so I can finish running my errands. And to those reading ~ if your still with me kuddos to you LOL I'm sure none of that was very interesting to read.
I was able to get to the gym early tonight, which was really nice! I stopped off at the bakery to put in a custom order for Seamus' party tomorrow, I can't wait to see how he decorates the cake for me, it'll be ready by noon!
I'm SO sore today too lol My arms & legs are very heavy feeling, but I like that and was what I was working twoards last night while at the gym, I enjoy feeling sore b/c it tells me my muscles were worked hard, which is great!
So, todays stats:
35 min cardio ~ I challenged myself tonight & went to an even higher incline & speed for as long as I could, then I lowered a bit & increased my speed some more so that I would continue to sweat hard. It was great!
20 min weights ~ was feeling pretty tired so I just did my curcuit once but I increased the amount I was lifting on some of them ~ I worked my lower body, glues/hams/tfl/& so on.
Ate pretty good today too, am cooking dinner for the kids & dh, am making taco salads with the taco bowls ~ I'm full so not feeling tempted, dh is even eating some yummy nacho's but I have no cravings to eat any which is a nice feeling. We'll be watching Eragon once dinner is ready am looking forward to that.
OH and I bought some sugar free Reece's Pieces, there is still quite a bit of fat & calories to it but I figured for a once in awhile treat it would be nice to have on hand, I had 3 tonight & it seems to of done the sweet tooth trick :thumbsup:
Hoping to see a loss tomorrow, even just a few oz would make me happy.
You sound very upbeat and postitive about everything. I'm glad that you're finding what works for you :razz: It sounds like you had a great workout! Doesn't it feel great to sweat?! That always makes me feel like I worked hard!
So happy you're feeling good about your food choices and that you weren't craving anything you didn't feel you should eat. You are gaining strength with each day Julia!
I haven't seen the sugar free Reese's but they sound yummy! I'll have to remember those if I crave chocolate!
Yay for being down yesterday! I'm sure you'll do great at the party today
I think changing things up a bit could be very good for you! I've found that both WW's and SBD work if you follow them, so I don't think you would really be doing any damage by switching to WW's for a week. One suggestion though would be that if you find your cravings return, to go back on phase 1 when you come back to SBD (although that would probably return you to being bored with food again, so maybe not?)
Sounds like a very good day yesterday! And there are much worse things to eat than chips and salsa And wtg on not craving things!
I'm going to look for those sugar free reeses pieces, I love reeses pieces
I just want to cry this morning, I got on the scale & I'm up again. Seriously, I couldn't even talk to dh about it b/c I'd tear up ~ I'm so upset!
I think I will come back later to reply with the hopes that I'll be in a better mood.
Don't forget our bodies flucutate daily (if not hourly) Chims.
Oh Chimmy (((((HUGS))))) everyone has their days sweetie, try to remember that.
I hope you are feeling better about it later.
oohh this entry is going to be long! LOL I have so much to say!
I wanted to respond to your replies before my poor me melt down, you both were so sweet & said some great things
Tracy ~ It DOES feel good to sweat, I love it lol And it's so good for your body too! The sugar free Reese's are super yummy, deffinatley worth a try Kind of expensive but I figured their a special treat not bought often, so I can justify the cost lol Their about $3+ for 10.
Dawn ~ You bring up a good point, and one that has kept me from going back to WW'ers & that's that I think I will struggle even more with sugar cravings & my sugars bouncing (I'm hypoglycemic so I have to be careful) ~ so I think I will stay on the sbd, I think it's a good way to eat to be honest, what I'm going to do is just watch my calorie intake I think that's where I'm going wrong, too many calories. Thanks for helping me think that out, I really appreciate it ((hugs))
And yes do try the Reeses lol their nummy!
Thanks you guys ~ I know that it's a day to day thing, that you can weigh so much one minute & then have it be totally different the next, although the morning weigh in's do tend to be pretty accurate, but still I know you can flucuate & I also know I'm gaining a lot of muscle AND losing inches (will share more about that later), and yet none of that seems to matter in moments like that, ya know? I don't know maybe you don't & it's just how I react, but it just seems like everything goes down the drain sometimes even though that's not true at all ~ anyways, pitty party of one is over lol Today was SUCH a beautiful day ~
After I sucked it up & told myself today was the WRONG day to feel sorry for myself, I decided to go out and get the last of the errands run before Seamus' party ~ as I was out I thought I would stop off at the store to pick up a pair of jeans, but the deal I made myself was that I would ONLY buy a pair of Jeans if they were a size 16, I also thought that this would either depress me more, OR make me happy lol It was worth the risk I thought, so into the store I headed & much to my utter amazement AND excitment I FIT INTO THEM!!!! One pair I tried were even slightly loose! OH MY WORD ~ seriously, I truly thought they would be too tight or that I wouldn't be able to get them up over my hips, but both pairs that I tried fit, one was a loose 16, the other was a regular 16 that one was a bit tight but not too tight that they were uncomfy.
Yea, I did a jig right there in the changing room, and smiled a lot.
I also bought a shirt, the sz 16 fit me except for my boobs, argh lol So I went to an 18, my tummy needs to slim down a bit but the shirt looks nice. It also made me smile really big to think one more size down and I'm OUT of the "Plus Size" section, THAT will be a day to celebrate.
So, yea, it's obvious that I'm losing inches & gaining muscle I just wish I could get it into my head that sometimes the scale DOES NOT matter, how I feel, how my clothes are fitting, how I'm eating, THAT is what matters ~ I don't know what I need to do in order to have more faith in my body & in this process, I suppose it's all apart of healing myself & part of that is my thinking process.
Seamus' party went so well, so perfectly well! We had a wonderful turnout, ALL of my siblings came, two almost never come to family events so that ment SO much to me. The one who couldn't was my sister and she had to work, but she came right over later tonight ~ gave him a gift that was really cute & I fed her, we also had a really great talk & she invited me to be at the birth of my nephew, I am so excited about that & honored.
As far as eating, I did eat some things I shouldn''t but all of it was in moderation & I feel really good about it all. I threw away the cake once everyone had a piece, same with the ice cream. I'm sending the left over bags of chips (unopened ones) with dh to work, and all the soda that isn't diet, which is basically everything but the diet pepsie lol So short of some chips in a ziplock bag which I'll use for the kids lunches, & a few drinks for them everything is out of the house :thumbsup:
I made it to the gym too! It was 9:30 and they close at 10 on Saturdays so I raced over and figured I'd just get in a REALLY good 30 minute workout, and sure enough I did! When I got there I was in such a great mood & the theater was nearly empty so I thought "mmm I'm going to attempt to run" LOL ha ha! AND I DID! lol I ran almost half a mile, not all at once it was in spurts of .10 to .20 at a time but I did it and I got in almost 2 miles 30 minutes, at 25 minutes into the workout they shut off the movie & there was just me and two other guys in there, the one directly to my right gave me the creeps, he kept looking at me and I dunno my gut was warning me about something, so when the guy infront of me turned off his machine & left too, I figured I was creeped out for a
reason & it wasn't worth 30 seconds, which is all I had left so I went home. I felt good though, it was fun to run but boy did my boobs & butt jiggle omg I can't believe I admitted that :oops:
Got in 120oz of water too.
OOHHH and another fun bit! Tonight after the kids were in bed DH ran to RCWilley to pay our bill, when he came home he asked for a hug & as I was hugging him he told me to reach into his back pocket lol I laughed, and then felt in wondering what he was up to, I felt this box with a plastic covering, not sure what it was I pulled it around & looked at it ~ it was a pink Ipod!! LOL I totally squeeled & laughed & kissed him, he's been wanting to get me one, his only regret he said was that he didn't get it engraved (I bought him a video Ipod last year for Christmas, and had a msg engraved) I told him nevermind that, this was such a sweet gift and it's PINK PINK PINK ha ha I love pink.
OH and even more good news, my Lose you Mummy Tummy arrived yesterday!!! I've already started reading it & am SO excited about this!!! :woohoo:
So, needless to say, today has been a good day & my little Seamie blue had a fantastic party. I will share pictures once I can get on the puter (am on the laptop) as dh is on it right now playing a game.
I'm happy to hear you made it to the gym after such a long day. Sounds like it was a great day though. WTG to DH for the pink iPod. :woohoo: How very sweet of him. Congrats on the smaller size. That's one of the best ways to reinforce that you are losing!!! The scale may fool us, but clothes they tell it how it is. :bighug: Enjoy your book.
Oh what a wondeful day!!! That is awesome about the jeans Ooh I bet you were sooo excited!!! Now if that's not the best way to see the results of your hard work I don't know what is!! (Forget the scale!!! Jeans that fit!!! Smaller jeans that fit!!!!)
That is so sweet of your dh!!! What a guy!
I'm amazed you got to the gym after such a long and busy day, go you!! Yeah, good thing you listened to your heart about that creepy guy!!
That is so awesome about the jeans Chimmy! I think that was just what you needed.
That is so sweet of your DH to get you a pink IPOD as well. It is so much easier to workout while you're listening to music.
Can't wait for pics of the little king's Party!
Hi you guys!
I am loving my pink ipod lol am excited to use it tonight, I've put a bunch of songs on it and bought a few from itunes.
Everytime I put my new jeans on it makes me smile, but somedays I wonder how they even fit b/c it feels like I'm not getting any smaller lol DH is always commenting & saying sweet things to me, but sometimes I think he does it just to be sweet LOL Of course I'm not complaining, he's wonderful.
lol tracy, I was suprised I got there too but I had so much energy! No idea where it came from
I am hoping to share some pictures here soon, but my camera broke! :crybaby: It dropped while I was at the zoo, and my other digital wont load pictures onto my computer, there's something wrong with the software. So I may have to wait awhile.
Today was good, until lunch ~ I took the boys out as a treat b/c they helped me this morning while I was at a training class for a group I'm starting with HS'ing, I didn't get myself anything but I ate some of their fries and ice cream :doh:
I'm REALLY trying not to get into a slump again, but also frustrated with myself b/c I feel like I just can't figure out how to get out of this funk.
I took my measurments this morning, I need to add them up & then will share how much I've lost.
Wow, quite a roller coaster there, Chims. Yay for the ipod! Boo for the broken camera. I'm sympathizing with you over here about the WL slump. I can't believe how long it took me to break through my little 3-4 pound range. It happens, though, so you just have to look at other things to make you feel good. What are all your NSVs? (Non Scale Victories)
Here are a few of mine: I had to take in my pants yesterday so they weren't so baggy. I have more energy and can run farther than I ever thought possible. Every time my mom sees me (which isn't as often as it used to be) she remarks on how good I'm looking and how proud she is of me. And here's one TMI NSV ... Sex with my husband is easier, more comfortable, and we can get into a lot more positions now that I'm smaller and stronger than I used to be.
So find some things about you that make you happy and focus on those until that scale starts to budge. We won't let those stupid numbers win this game!
Everytime I put my new jeans on it makes me smile
I'm so happy for you hon! I know you've had some emotional ups and downs but you are getting thinner! You are getting stronger! It sounds like you're being too hard on yourself I agree with Brandy... find your victories and don't let the scale numbers mess with you. By working out regularly you are increasing your strength, your muscle mass and you metabolism too! Sometimes the scale can be our friend and other times it's just the opposite. I wonder if it would be helpful to you to ditch the scale for awhile? It's so easy to get focused on it, kwim?
I'm glad you're loving your pink Ipod but I'm so sorry about your camera
Roller coaster is a good way to put it lol Wow, you know I never thought of looking at my NSV's other than how my clothes are fitting, that is a really positive way to look at things!!
I love your's lol that's awsome! Okay so I need to think about what my NSV's are ~ right now fitting into a smaller size of jeans is a biggie, feeling more confident when I'm around others, feeling accomplished by making it to the gym consistently for so long AND working out so well.
Okay ~ I'm going to make this a habit! lol It's a lot more fun than being down in the slumps & a slave to the scale.
Tracy ~ Thanks hun This entire thing really has been soo emotional for me, I know part if it is my fight against my BDD but each day I learn something new about myself & better ways to get past the negativity, and I really do have you guys to thank ~ you put up with me & then help me see the better side of things, that is priceless imo.
I think I do need to ditch the scale, I've been thinking of having dh take my weight while I'm not looking, and have him PM cherie for me w/out me knowing what it is, and doing this until the end of the challenge. Might be kind of fun too lol
35 min cardio
20 min weights - upper body
So, I got to the gym tonight, but seriously, it took EVERY OUNCE of me to get through my workout, my body is SO fatigued ~ Seamus hasn't slept much for weeks now, so I think my body is feeling run down & there's a storm coming, my body gets weird with storms lol. Even still I got through 35 minutes of cardio, lots of high incline & speed for awhlie, did my weights and now I'm slummin' it here & glad I'm NOT there lol
Once I'm done here I'm looking forward to crawling into bed & reading more of my Mummy Tummy book, it is really interesting!
NSV is a great way to look at things. We do get too wrapped up in a number sometimes. :bighug: It sounds like your body needs some extra rest. Make sure you let it get what it needs. I was really feeling worn down by last weekend, so I slept in 2 1/2 and 3 hours over the weekend. It made a world of difference. :bighug: Keep up the great work!
I think NSV's are awesome! Definately keep looking at those Chimmy! That could be interesting Chimmy to have DH take your weight for you, I think it may be a very good idea
I agree with Becci, let your body get some extra rest. You've built up a great amount of endurance, taking a short break to build up your energy won't hurt.
Yay on your tummy book! I'm so glad its finally here
Hi you guys Well Seamus slept REALLY well last night, yay!! So I'm feeling pretty rested & hopefully tonights workout will go well.
Mary ~ no worries! Several of us are there with you right now
Kathy ~ Oh yay! :yahooL 218.6 is fantastic!
Mine latley is caffine, I have a ton of Diet Pepsi in the fridge, argh! I am going to put it away for awhile I think.
I stepped on the scale this morning, it said 212.6 ha! I totally laughed, but then I stepped on it again (shouldn't of tempted fate lol) and it said 213 and then flipped to 214.2 stupid scale, SO I am waiting until 10 to do my official weigh in lol I can handle 214.2 BUT it'll mean I'm still in this plateau, oh well.
I also woke up to a water heater that is flooding my basement, nice eh? I'm not too stressed over it, if we do need to buy a new one it'll just mean we can't put in our backyard this year, it could be worse!
:razz: I'm glad you got a lot of good rest!
I'm glad you got your Tummy book! Let us know how you like it!
Bummer about your water heater
So far I am really liking the MT book, it's great! Yea it is a bit of a bummer about the silly water heater, but thankfully we'll have the means to buy a new one if we need to, we'll just have to wait another yr to put in our backyard. Could certainly be worse!
I weighed in for the POBLC challenge, 214.2 suprise suprise lol I just can't get past those 2oz to hit 213 ~ hopefully this week!!! Oh I hope I hope!
Glad you finally feel rested!
I think we need to take a big stick and beat both the scale and the water heater. May not do any good but you'll feel better! LOL
Sorry about still being stuck in the plateau... one of my co-workers on the SBD is stuck too. I hope you both can move on soon!
LOL I think that's a great plan!!! Now, to find a stick .....
I've been reading on that SBD site I go to where ppl get stuck for wks and wks, and then suddenly drop a ton *shrugs* guess we'll see!
