Weigh In for 3.11.12

Boooooooo!!!  Not a good week.  Definitely fell off and I'm not too proud of it.  I hate this cycle.  I wish I would just commit and stick to it.  I know for a fact if I do the 3 things... Exercise, Watch my Calorie Intake and drink my water.  I will lose.  I know it works for a fact.  So why can't I keep to this?


Weigh-In:  209.0

I'm up 1.6 pounds.  I know what caused it.  I was way under calorie range every day except Saturday.  I'm talking about 1100 and below.  Some days under 1000.  The problem was, I didn't get in much exercise nor much water either.  I'm talking about days where I didn't drink water at all or maybe 3 cups in general.  I don't know why I struggled so much drinking my water the past week.  Even the week prior it was kind of hard.  Saturday I went wayyy over in calories and sodium.  Mainly because I made these Meatball Marinara sliders.  So good but so bad.  Add in that I think its caused me to be irregular again.  I can feel it in my pouch area. 

Another revelation, I really need to seriously leave the bread alone.  I get stuck every time now.  No matter how much I toast it.  I've known for a while but I just keep trying.  I don't know why either.  Its something in my head.  I hate fighting the head battle.  Breads are my weakness outside of sweets.  I've learned to stay away from french fries due to this but for whatever reason I still attempt to eat sandwiches.  I did this when I tried to eat a tuna fish sandwich last weekend.  I have to get myself in check.

As for exercising.... I only walked for 30 minutes the entire week.  Not good. 

So definitely pulling myself together and getting back in gear this week.  My job is starting a Zumba class two times a week.  Free class tonight to see if we like it.  I'm going to do it this evening.  And if I enjoy, I will purchase some additional classes.  At least do it once a week.  They have a deal, which is 6 classes for 25 dollars.  I'm thinking I can pay for it with my HSA account.  I brought my Polar HRM to see how many calories I burn tonight. 

That about wraps on the weight loss front.....

Weigh In for 3.4.12, Softball Fun

Hola everyone...

So lets talk about last week...

On the exercise front, I did pretty well.  Lots of walking at work.  I did 135 minutes of walking, goal was 120 minutes.  So I'm happy with that.  No time in with Jillian Michael's.  My legs were sore for about 3-4 days after last Sunday's workout with Jillian.  I'm talking about my entire leg, inner/outter... all over!  Lets just say I was walking funny.  Haha.  I planned on doing some workouts with Jillian but was pretty busy this past week.  I need to make sure to make time though. 

On the calorie intake, I stayed under.  Did go over a couple of days on sodium.  I got most water in but had two days where I didn't get all 72 ounces in.

So weigh-in for yesterday was -

Weigh-In:  207.4

So thats 0.4 pounds down from last week.  In total weight lost I'm at 35.6 pounds since the beginning of this whole thing.  I never really knew the big total.  Not bad, too bad its taken this long to get there.  LOL.  The ultimate goal is to hit Onederland soon!  I was hoping to be down 1.5 pounds from last week but its all good.  As long as the weight goes down, I don't care. 

I can say that I put on a pair of jeans I used to wear a few years ago... and a pair of work pants.  Both were pretty loose.  That means I'm close to changing pants size.  Whoop whoop!! 

We set up our computer at home but can't find the mouse.  So unable to do any uploads from there on photos.  Blah!

In other news... my daughter started softball last week.  She had two games, both games her team lost by 1 point.  This is her first time ever playing a sport or doing an activity in general.  She had a breakdown on her second practice because she didn't understand the game.  But since then has been doing much better.  I think she's starting to enjoy it more.  I'm happy to have her involved in something.  And if she likes it enough to do it again for another season, I may volunteer to help out the coach or something.  I can play some softball, I believe... haha.

Check out this cool photo of her... at her first game.

Oh and regarding BOOB's 2012, I am going... and think I have found my roommate.  So excited!  That about wraps things up.

Anywho... have a great day everyone!
