Day 2! I'm still here! Consistency is my issue, so one day at a time, one step at a time, just keep going... This is how I have to think all the time, every day. Today, Chris and I walked to the store to turn in our redbox movies... really just to exercise because we passed several red boxes on the way. It was nice and cool out which made it more enjoyable than the walks we took during the summer. They were brutal. It was easy going because it was mostly downhill, but you know what that means... coming home kind of kicked my butt (up a steep hill), but I was a trooper. Chris asked me if I wanted to take a short cut toward the end and I refused. I actually look forward to the feeling of pride when I complete a workout. The worst part is that I live on the 3rd floor, and we were entering from the back of the building, which means we started at the garden level... 5 flights of stairs. That sucks after walking mostly uphill for an hour. Anyway, it's done and I'm happy.
So far, I've have my frosted mini spooners and coffee. Time to start my day and be productive.
A little note about yesterday, my first day back... I think I did okay except for the 3 Apple Ales I had lol (oops) but that almost never happens. They were delicious but that won't become a habit.

I hope everyone has a great day. I want to read all the journals and news, but no time now. Hopefully when things slow down for me, I can check in with everyone.:)

Hi everyone. My last entry was in June, 2013. I guess I can say that I pretty much quit. I was in a good place, and then I wasn't anymore, and my lifestyle went back to what made me fat in the first place. I went to the doctor yesterday, and I had to step on the scale. I couldn't even look away. He sits at his desk and I have to tell him the number. 240. (he said subtract 10, but I'm subtracting 5 bc my clothes were not heavy) Wow! My last weigh in here was in May 2013, 215, so close to 200, my first big milestone. Now look what I've done.

Today will be day one of getting real and starting over. Just so happens that Aunt Flow decided to pay me a visit this morning, and I have cramps from hell. Chris (the sig other), has this... Just do it attitude "If you really want it, you'll do it" "Other women have the same responsibilities and they do it" "You just have to say Fuck it and make it happen". So, everything that comes out of my mouth sounds like a pathetic excuse. He is currently sitting here in his workout clothes and gym shoes pretending he's not waiting for me to get off my fat ass and get ready for the gym. I will. I will go to the gym this morning, cramps, bad attitude and all.

I will write more about what's going on at another time, but let's just say that my main challenge is trying to fit everything into my day. I feel like nothing gets done unless I do it. That's probably not true, but it's how I feel. I usually try to get an early start, like grocery shopping at 7am, something in the crockpot or at least thaw out some meat by 9am, all my errands, phone calls, cleaning, laundry, appointments for me and my daughter (we have plenty). And I'm on meds that don't always leave me feeling well. So, yes I have excuses. I have to find strength that I don't even know exists and make it happen.

Here we go again. I have been trying to get to a healthy weight since I had my daughter who just turned 17. I will be 40 in March. I DO NOT want to be fat at 40. I don't even know if I still have buddies on this site. I certainly hope so, because I need support.

I'm still struggling to get back into the swing of things. I feel like I'm failing miserably. I've lost focus. When Chris was gone, I used that time to really focus on myself. Now, it's like I have switched gears. I'm not sure exactly what it is. Chris and I are doing well for the most part. We are active. That hasn't changed. The problem is my diet. I've just been giving into my cravings, and Chris is not good at telling me no, so he goes out and gets whatever I ask for. Not good! I have not been recording my food at all. Well, Chris is back to work now which is good, because when he's gone, I feel a little stricter with my food choices. I hope I don't sound like I'm blaming him. I'm not. There's just something different when we are together. I'm just so relaxed when he's around. It's almost like I'm always on vacation mode, where you just do whatever feels good at the time. Since he's back on base today, I'm using this time to focus and get back on track. I went to my first Pilates class today. It was sooo hard. I felt so weak compared to everyone else. The instructor gave options for how to do certain moves... level 1, 2, and 3. I always had to do level 1, and it was still hard for me. I just felt so pathetic. I felt like I've made no real progress since I've been at this the last 4 months. I'll be taking 5 classes a week. Mondays and Thursday, I'll be taking a "Bodyworks and Abs" class. It's a dumbbell workout that also includes spurts of cardio. At the end, we do Ab work, which I'm terrible at. I have no core strength at all. I've taken the class twice, and I always quit at the end during the Ab portion. I just can't do the exercises at all. I took a zumba class yesterday which was good. I'll also be taking a spin class on Friday. I hope I can keep up. So, now I will record my food for the first time in a long time. :)

29 May 2013

Good morning. I haven't been on Fat Secret at all lately. My main focus has been to spend time with Chris since he just returned home. Yes, I'm off track, but I'm slowly easing back to reality. We've been on kind of vacation mode, just going out and having a good time, enjoying each other's company. Next week he goes back to work, which means I need to get back to my life which includes eating right, logging my meals, cooking, cleaning, ect. As for working out, that hasn't really stopped. I signed up at LA Fitness and got two really great workouts in. I had a free session with a personal trainer, and the next day Chris and I did some weight lifting, and then I took a class called Body Works and Abs. It was so hard. I made it through most of the class, but I just couldn't keep up with the ab workout, so I quit a little early. I'll just keep going, and I'm sure I'll do a little better each time. Well now I'm sick, and I'm pissed about it. I don't want anything interfering in what I'm trying to do right now. I'm going to the doctor today, and hopefully I'll be better very soon. One great thing that happened was that when I went to the gym on Sunday to workout with the personal trainer, he said he wanted to do an assessment, which included weighing me. I have not been strict on my diet this month at all, and I've been avoiding the scale. Chris and I had gone out for a steak dinner the night before. I told the trainer that I had gotten down to 216, but I'm sure I've gained weight because of the way I've been eating. He asked how much I think I weigh. I said probably about 220-222. Well, to my surprise, I weighed in at 216! Wow lol. The next morning I weighed myself at home, and I was down to 215. Weighed 217 yesterday though, so like I said, back to reality. Have a great day people. I hope it's sunny where you are. It's a beautiful day here in Georgia :)
