Calorie average 1725 too high

Moving... Like a turtle

I have to get my issues under wraps. I do not like feeling like I not where I want to be. I am better than I was and that is reassuring. Sometimes there is so much going on in my life that food seems like one more thing to worry about.

I have to change my mindset. I also have been torn by my lack of progress on the scale. But since this is not a scale issue.


I can and will deal with this.

Family Fitness

We attempted another park with very limited success. I used my same random method and it did not work out great. We did walk however and that is the most important part. The babies were bummed because their was no playground.

Check out my pics....





Another lil video blip for your enjoyment.



I will talk about this week when I have had time to process it.

Realizations and Modifications

Well another crappy weigh in. Guess who is to blame..? My spouse...? No. My kids....? No. My schedule...? No. My job...? No. 

It was me. I ate the food. I logged the less than stellar work outs. I have to results or lack there of on my person.
 All i can do is make changes and do better next week.  So I am examining the things I did and where I want to improve.

Here are my failures or things I have to improve on 1st and foremost.

----> Eating out.
----> Workout intensity.
----> Calorie intake too high.

So I will work on these this week and make my numbers way more better than the week before.

This week was not a total failure. Far from it... I did 45 minutes of exercise, on my own, on Saturday. I waked and practice for my CLIMB. I logged a total of 15 laps up and down at the local high school football stadium.  I warmed up with a lap around the track. Then I sis my "stair work". The 1st 10 laps I would go up , then down , then across ( like for a recovery), then on lap #2 I would go up and down, then across twice, and then on lap#3 I would go up and down then across 3 times... and I did that for for the 1st 10 laps. Then laps 11-15 where just up and down with a little, but much needed breather in between. I cooled down with another lap around the track.

The bleachers of pain.

About 5 laps in....

Week 7 Summary

Week of Feb 12th to Feb. 18th... 2012
Starting weight 219.6#

Daily Comments
Sunday-Lazy day with the family. Felt great to relax around the house. I did manage to get some laundry done and ironed for the week ahead. I have also been  taking time every day to stay caught up with my school work.
Monday-- I do not like MOndays. I just miss the kids a whole bunch. It was cold today and not fun. But I did get my work out in.
Tuesday-- Happy Valentine’s Day. Ran late to work but work was good. Homecooked meal by me. ALso got my Zumba in for 25 minutes.
Wednesday-- Work was fine. I have been sleeping better and getting to bed by 11pm and making sure I get a solid 6 hours sleep and it is awesome.
Thursday--Ate out and what a waste of calories. Kids were driving me nuts. I am looking forward to being off for 4 days.
Friday--Day ran away from me. Took Maya to Health4Life Clinic. She has gained weight which is not a surprise, but we did get to finally meet the psychologist and now she is going to start working with her to get her coping skills up. Then hubby worked on my car. Then we got his kids for the 1st time in 6 months.  Also went to Wal-mart and git groceries
Saturday--Great day. Walked .5miles. Practiced for my climb. Got lots school work done.

Torn Between 2 Websites


I have been using My Fitness Pal for awhile. I used to use SparkPeople. It stopped using SP because I was more focused on my points than my weight loss. But with me deciding to exercise every day of my 40th year... I realized that wanted to know my minutes as well. MFP just does not have as much resources as SP. So I may check in on MFp but slowly migrate back to SP. I am not sure, but we shall see where I will take it form here.

I am not doing great in the eating department and I just got my cycle so I am not fun to be around.

I am scatter brained and will figured this out this weekend.
What are your thoughts...../

Week 6 in Review Wk #7 Goals


February 6th to February 11th, 2012

Daily Comments
Monday--Did Zumba 2 on the Wii. I like it a bunch. Its hard and fun. It makes me feel outta shape but I need it. I need to more more. I am trying to also stay ahead on my school work. I am 
Tuesday-- Long day at work. Cooked dinner. Had online class session from 7-9pm thus my lackluster workout. I have to find balance and more time but I am doing the best that I can.
Wednesday--Another long day at work and for the 1st time in a long time. I felt my hunger ad it couldn't seem to be satisfied. I know I ate too much. I have to get to the bottom. Maybe its also the TOM because I also woke up especially moody. SO I will have to walk a lot longer on the treadmill and may even have to also do some Zumba. I am fighting getting lazy.
Thursday--I had a blur of a day. My daughter got interview by Sanjay Gupta on CNN. Then she had a basketball game. It was so cool being in CNN.

Friday--Long day at work. Glad daughter is done with basketball. I am really worn out from running around. I want some peace and quiet in my day to day grind. I hate that burnt out feeling.

Saturday--OMG it was cold as heck on our 5k. The temp at the race was like 30 degrees. We had the babies in the jogging stroller and poor junior complained about being cold the entire time even toughie thought we had them bundled up tight. Our time was slower than our time last month. That was very upsetting, especially because overall hubby and I felt like the walk/run itself felt much better than the 1st one last month. maybe it was the rain/sleet or the weather or the stupid Georgia hills. I am not sure oh well.. we did the best that we could.
