25 April 2017

Copied and pasted from, um.. yesterday.. because well.. I'm about a focused as a cat chasing a laser pointer.

This weekend was one of the more challenging ones since I started my journey of healthy eating, exercising, and attempting to not teach the tiny humans to curse like truck drivers. I failed miserably on all fronts thanks to a giant package of glazed donuts, having only 5-6 hours a night of sleep finally catch up to me, a deep stressful conversation with my husband, and tiny humans that refused to take naps and wanted instead to go inside or outside every 4 minutes and 26 seconds. Inside, outside, inside, outside, snack, inside, drink, outside, go , go, go. I suppose that counts as some exercise but it also had me cursing like a truck driver the 109th time.

I am proud to say… The donut was just ok, the tiny bear cookies my kids keep raving about are absolutely disgusting, the ice cream was ok but not worth it, and today I am back on track. I’m eating more than I should but I’m eating all the approved things that I can eat and still be ok. I’m tracking. I will workout. I will succeed and beat this mountain with tiny baby steps in the right direction. I will not let sugar, stress, or tiny humans distract me from my main goal of being healthy.

Today my facebook account was also kind enough to remind me that 4 years from today I was on a different weightloss journey where I managed to get down to 140 lbs. I did it once. I will do it again. I will beat the 190’s and every level that comes after that. I will be healthy. I will feel comfortable in my own skin. I will be strong like moose.

Nothing puts a skip in your step like new heels, a drop on the scale, and Victoria Secret. Unfortunately I also seem to be suffering from short term memory loss because I forgot what the weight loss was... 196ish??? Somewhere in there. It was a drop though so I put on new heels I got yesterday and something pretty from Victoria Secret. I think from now on every weight loss should be celebrated the same way because heaven knows I don't feel sexy most of the time.. ok ever. I never ever feel sexy. I just don't. It's hard to feel sexy with one kid wrapped around your leg and cow poop on your forehead. For some reason heels, a kid wrapped around your leg, and new pretty things that do amazing things can make you feel kinda sexy even if there is cow poop on your forehead.

I'm grateful because I needed a feel sexy moment today. Now I know.. I'm married so this probably doesn't make much sense. I had lunch with a friend today that happens to be a guy and the conversation came to a point when I realized this man was not and would never be attracted to me. Yeah I know I'm married so I shouldn't care. Which.. quite frankly is crap. Just because you're married doesn't mean you're invisible. It would be nice and kinda flattering to know what someone other than your partner would want you if there was a zombie apocalypse and everyone else was walking around rotting. It kinda stung. I know it shouldn't but it did. I know people have all sorts of different preferences but.. well.. Ouch.

It doesn't help that I posted a weighin yesterday on my blog and decided to start taking weekly pictures to show progress that isn't just on the scale. My ego is currently curled up in the corner sucking its thumb. That being said.. I've lost over 15 lbs from my heaviest. I'm making slow and steady progress. Maybe.. just maybe.. someday I will turn the head of someone who wasn't yoked to me in a ceremony in the back yard. Yes we were yoked... don't ask. The pastor was hilarious and we said whatever you want. We basically asked for it.

The Elliptical vs. Treadmill fight is currently underway on the farm. I won't lie.. the elliptical is my baby. It has been my faithful baby for almost 10 years. This may be why it wheezes and makes unladylike noises now. Seriously.. I love her but if company is over I think twice about what people may think is going on behind the bedroom door. This is the whole reason for the current fight that is taking place. Do I upgrade the old girl with a new elliptical or do I make the switch to the treadmill?

I decided on my birthday that I wasn't doing the whole my life's bucket list. Instead I'm doing a yearly bucket list with only a couple items. One of those items is a 5K. I did a little running yesterday with the boys in a hay field and I don't even think I'm a shape. I could be flubber which really doesn't resemble any shape but flubber. Since I workout for a half hour on the elliptical at least 5 days a week.. I'm questioning it's ability to whip my butt into shape. At the same time.. I noticed I feel like a 50 lbs sack of feed when I attempt to jog. I'm not positive but I think I clomped.

Supposedly you burn more calories on the elliptical.... It's nicer on the joints. It has that whole peppy bounce thing going on. GAHHHHHH Someone just tell me what to buy.

Well... I did the yoga and I loved the yoga. The class was made up of all sorts of people. Every size, every age, and everyone was super nice. My view of the entry level class...

LOTS of breathing, putting your body in strange positions that make you realize you have muscles and can't move in ways you thought you could, silent counting.. that I kept losing track of, lots of giggling because no one could keep count or keep track of the order of the breathing/moving, and super doper relaxing. I had the worst day of work and was in a totally craptastic mood. The friend I was supposed to go with cancelled at the last minute because they SUCK. Despite all that. I LOVED it and signed up for a 6 week course. That's my report.

Also this weekend was Easter which I have renamed "Pantsless sugar high day that leaves adults drinking heavily and not having pants that fit the next day." Seriously.. 3 lbs??? I somehow gained 3 lbs. I ate and logged and came in around 2500 calories. I'm hoping by Wednesday the weight is back down. Because otherwise.. I'm officially giving up easter and hunting down that sugar addicted bunny.
