Back to work

I must confess this past week has been awesome. I was able to reinvigorate my workouts. I made a new friend who I hope keeps me honest. I started to tackle my paperwork, although I am not quite finished. It was awesome to sleep in and spend my days with the babies. So I am ready for work and feeling really good.

I hope to continue on this path ...

I was talking with hubby and was telling him how I must accept the fact that this whole exercise thing is not a temporary thing. I need to accept the fact that I need to devote/spend at least 30 mins every day exercising. I would like to eventually increase that time but at my current weight and having 2 small kids makes it a bit difficult.

This whole process of being a whole, healthier me is going to take time. It is a marathon, Heck...more like a triathlon. I need to lose weight, eat healthier, and develop lifelong healthy habits. So i need to be more understanding, more consistent, more focused....

I want to do it right once and for all. I am worth it!

My goals for this week are to:
  • continue work on training for 5k
  • stairmaster for 15mins
  • balance my budget
  • log my food 7 of 7 days
  • stay within my calories 6 of 7 days
  • finish organizing paperwork
  • spend 10 mins every day reading
I have more than that on my mind and to do list but those things are the most important.


1 stupid pound

This is all I am down. 1 stupid pound. I have passed up sweets. Drinks...snacks, etc and that is it. Oh well. I also got my period full on this a.m. So I am praying that this is just period weight. My average calorie burn for the previous week was 2470 calories.

Upside- my body fat is down 2.28 lbs even though my actual weight is only down 1 pound.
Body fat 115.48
body fat 113.10

So I am not moved. I am on a path to being healthy. I will not short change myself any more.

Taking the babies to the zoo so I will get lotsa walking in. Pics to come.


Doin' it, doin' it, doin; it well

I am back on track and it feels awesome. I am counting calories and exercising. In addition, I am doing it with e help of my hubby and my daughter. I feels awesome. I began at 241 lbs. More than I ever weighed in my adult life. I didn't even weigh that much when I was 9 months pregnant.

My hubby was watching what he eats even though he doesnt really have a weight problem. But I felt pressure, but he wasn't pressuring me. It was like I finally just got tired of not liking what I saw in the mirror.

I am focused more now than ever. I am back on SparkPeople. My first full week, I am down a lil over 2 lbs. I want to get down to 150. Hubby says its too low, but I don't think so. I have been juggling what to make my weigh in day, but I think I am going with Friday. I get up at the same time and it keeps pressure on the during the week.

So what I need from everyone and anyone who can is support and pushing. I work better under pressure. It has been very easy to disappoint myself but I hate letting other people down.

My goals this week is to plan out my 5k plan and my Climb Atlanta plan. This is it. I am doing it once and for all. I deserve it. I want it.
