here we go

Ok really I need to stop being so hard on myself. I was doing so good. No soda, no mochas, no fast food and lately I have let it all go to crap. I need to stop all that self destruction and get to working out. Figure if I do good all month I will be able to justify buying an Elliptical for the house and use that instead of going to the gym or using a video. I need to come up with a daily plan and get it done. I am going to do this. I need to do this. I am so tired of weighing this much.

Food this week

So I haven't been the best. I am working on stopping when I am full. I think the biggest hurdle for me right now is getting cardio into my routine. I will get there. At some point I will just figure out when to do it and stop relying on other people to tell me to do it.

Food Friday

Had a starbucks tai chi latte and a low fat turkey bacon breakfast sandwich. I have no idea how many calories that is. I need to figure something out for dinner. No idea about that yet. So far I am just staying even :(. I need to add more cardio to my routine I think.

Food for Tuesday

Ok so I have been enjoying my mocha's but only one.
I had half a sandwich for lunch a couple chips and a few bits of pasta salad.
I wasn't overly hungry today for some reason.
Dinner was baked bbq chicken, mac and cheese and green beans. I did small portions and stopped when I felt full. I am really working on eating smaller portions and not over eating.
So far so good. I have been doing some kind of working out each night so we shall see where it gets me.

Food for Saturday

So I am terrible about eating breakfast. I should change that habit while I am at it.
I had a chicken cesaer wrap for lunch but it was probably 1000 calories LOL. I had a small portion of pasta salad and a hot dog for dinner. I also need to up my water intake. I have been super tired today. Gosh I just sound like a mess. So the food was a little off today. I will get there one day at a time.


So I worked out last night. Didn't do a lot it was 10pm but I did do something and that is better than nothing. Got a new toning work out from my fitness magazine that I am trying for a couple weeks. We are on our way.

Food for today

So I had a slimfast for breakfast.
Ramen for lunch. Was at about 600 or less calories.
Then took the kids to the movies for the first time and had a soda, candy and popcorn. Fell off the wagon but I am getting right back on the horse and working out tonight. I will work out in the morning before I head out to run errands.

Chris and me

So Chris is going to be working out with me wohoo. We are going to start doing weights and possibly an elliptical work out 6 days a week. So three weights and three elliptical. If we can find one we like for a price we can afford. We might have to wait a little bit on it if they are super expensive but we have videos and such for the interim. Should be good for both of us to do this together. Going to check the exchange for prices and such.

meals for Thursday

Skipped breakfast my bad :0
Had half a quesadea for lunch and a few bits of Chris's nachos.
Dinner undecided still.

So if I can burn 2 pounds per week by adjusting my diet and exercise I should be able to reach my goal of 130 pounds by my sister's birthday this year. So by September 17, 2009 or when Jeremy turns 3 I will be close to or at 130 pounds. If I can keep going I should reach 120 by November 1, 2009. These are the goal dates I am setting for myself for the long term. The goal for the remainder of this week is still to cut the coffee, sugar and soda from my diet. Caffeine headaches.... BRING EM ON! I have a calorie counter I am going to keep track of my food. I am going to post each day my food for the day and my calories so I can keep better track of what is going in. Each Monday I will set a new goal for that week. The weight goal is 2 pounds a week max. Here goes maybe smaller goals will be good. Rewards at the end of the week? Not sure but I will think of something.

Ticker update

Fell off again

God I fail. I can't stick to this working out thing at all. I do want to lose the weight but how do I keep myself going? How do I not quit on myself?
So as of today June 2, 2009 I am trying to turn a new leaf. No more coffee, soda or candy. That is the goal for this week. If I meet that goal then next Monday I will set a new one. I will just set a new goal each week and try that. That way I am not looking at the whole big picture getting overwhelmed and frustrated and quitting. No more coffee, soda or sugar. Say it with me people! Ok ready GO!!

two weeks

So I was doing great with working out. Then I got sick and missed a couple days and this week is a week off from my class and I am still sick. I am at 161 but hey I will just keep at it.

Doing good, kinda

So I worked out Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday this week. That is really good for me. I sadly am up 2 pounds. Not sure how that happens but must be my crappy eating habits. So that is the goal for next week is to work on getting my eating habits under control and stop eating such greasy bad for me food. And the white mochas don't help either I am sure.

Fitness boot camp part 2

So the fitness boot camp this morning was great. All the ladies seemed real nice and one lady said even on a budget that was something she was keeping. I was a little late because I got lost but I think it will go better next time. I got 15-20 min in and it felt great and I was jazzed the rest of the day. I hope to keep it up. Going to do cardio on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at home. I guess we shall see how it goes. I hope I can get through my plateau at 150 with this program.

Fitness boot camp

Ok so going to be starting a fitness boot camp for women. It looks crazy hard but I think that it is time to buckle down and kick my own fat ass into gear. I am never going to lose 30lbs with what I have been doing so time for something a little more extreme. I will go to the fitness boot camps Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings. No shower tomorrow LOL. I will come home and shower. Wish me luck (even though no one reads this)! Then to my first appointment and and grocery shopping. Should be an eventful day :). Oh and my weight is holding steady at 157, go go pounds.

Fell off the wagon

I fail at losing weight. If I could just sit at home and get fat I probably would. I just am not that good at making time to work out. Course life is a bit crazy and I also have to be careful still not to overdue it. But I am holding steady at 157-156 so at least I am not going up. Just need to get to the downward movement again.

Monday's are always rough and today was no exception. Didn't manage to work out but baby steps I will get there. I did manage to take the hydroxycut and drink a slimfast shake for lunch. I did miss breakfast but I wasn't that hungry anyway. No idea how I am sitting for weight. I will check it on Wednesday. Hopefully tomorrow will be better for working out. I did eat half of a chicken club from McDonalds and some fries. Oh well 500 calories for dinner never killed anyone. And I didn't eat it all. And I didn't eat the kids stuff so that is a good start. Normally I just eat it all down :). Ok well just keep on keeping on and I will get there. Slow and steady is the way to keep it off.

Sunday, March 15, 2009


So I got some hydroxycut at the exchange the other day. Just figured what the heck I could try it out. So far it seems to be helping. I took Sunday (today) off of it to see if it was helping with my appetite and it is. It is keeping me from being hungry all the time and over eating. It doesn't make it so I don't ever eat. So now that I understand what it is doing here goes. Tomorrow morning I will take two instead of one and then one in the afternoon. I don't want it to keep me up. It is also helping me to take my prenatals more LOL isn't that funny. So there it is. 27 more pounds to go and then shopping. Chris is going to try the hydroxycut too because he is just eating so much. I think we just need that little push. I am going to be working out this week but only for 15min because the doctor said not to do anything to strenuous quiet yet. And every little bit helps :).

Saturday, March 14, 2009


I am down to 157 as of today Saturday March 14th. Wohoo for me. It could just be due to finishing of being baby pounds but hey I will take what I can get. Go Go me!

Day 1....

So this morning I was so not feeling like working out, I just wanted to curl up on the couch and go back to sleep. But I really need to get my butt going and start working off these pounds. They aren't going to magically go away. I picked up some Hydroxycut Max for women yesterday and I took one of those this morning. Hence the reason today is day one. I have had two glasses of water so far and need to go get some more. I did a weight check this morning to see where I am starting and I am at 160 so I have lost 1 pound hehe. Go go me! I did 15 min cardio work out this morning, I am starting slow and working my way up. I am going to post each day what I did for work out and what I am eating so I can keep track. I also have a program on my phone I am going to use to track calories and working out. I am going to work for 2000 calories a day and aim for a goal of 1500 calories a day. I am not sure yet so gotta start somewhere. Well here goes, I can do this and when I do, THEN I can ask Chris to try again for another baby, and be a much healthier prego mamma. So that is my motivation. No 130 no baby, and I can teach the kids that working out is healthy and good for us and not try to let them know that society said we should be skinny. Everyone should be healthy and I am not healthy at 160.

Starting again

Well now that we are not expecting I can get back on the weightloss band wagon. So I am at 160 and I want to get to 130. It is an ongoing battle for me. I just lack the lose weight motivation but I know it will help me get through everything that is going on right now. So here we go. I got a new workout game for the Wii fit and it looks like it will be great. I am going to do that Monday through Friday with Chris in the evenings. I may try to go for a brisk walk on the weekends. If I feel up for it I might try to work out in the mornings for 15 min just to get me going. I hope it helps me sleep better too. So on to reaching goals. Now if I could get the food thing under control I would be doing 100% better. My new game even tracks my measurements which is kinda cool. Chris and I both want to lose 30 pounds. I will keep everyone updated.... Wait no one reads this but me LOL.
