I’ve been so terrible lately. Still having trouble getting back on track. Though I think I’m doing better than I was 2 weeks ago.
I’ll try to remember to weigh myself in the morning and see where I stand. I really wish I had the extra money to continue with weight watchers. It truly helps me lose weight, why can’t I do it on my own??? I’m going to try really hard though. I just need to keep myself from eating too much, and from eating bad things. I am going to try something a friend of mine does. Every day of the week except Saturday she behaves. But Saturday is cheat day. I’m going to try this. Starting today. I kept track of everything I’ve eaten and I exercised.
I’m hoping this will be helpful and will keep me motivated.
I’ve been slacking on my blogging and my diet!
But, I’m back! Some awesome things have happened since I last wrote. My 30th birthday was April 17th. It was pretty uneventful until the weekend!
Friday the 19th when we got home from work there was a happy birthday banner hanging on the wall in our dining room. I remember asking EJ “What is that!?” I walked into the dining room and then from my right where our kitchen is jump out my Mom and sister, Sheryl!!! I yelled “WHAT! WHAT IS THIS! OMG!” and then I started to cry as I hugged them both. Continue reading
SO…I weighed myself this morning and drumroll please…210.7! To remind you, when I went to the DR last month (2/19) I weighed 221! That’s a whopping 11 pounds off in one month!
I’m feeling pretty awesome lately! Between trying really hard to eat well and exercising at least 4 times a week, I feel great. I even have days where I can’t wait to go to the gym! But, working out has never been a problem for me. Continue reading
I met with a trainer on Wednesday at my gym. I now have a set workout schedule to adhere to 3 days a week.
I have a lot on my mind so I made a list! Enjoy
Who strains their abdominal muscle wall? This girl apparently. Let me back track…..
I went to the DR this week and got my test results today. I was disappointed in myself when I got them.
I’ve got some work to do….
||35 – 160
|Optimal testing for triglycerides should be performed following a 12 to 14 hour fast.
||0 – 130
||1.9 – 4.2
||1.0 – 4.0
So, I need to lower my triglycerides and bad cholesterol and raise my good cholesterol. I was really upset when I got the results. I literally sat and cried at my desk for a good half hour. My friend Lauren talked to me and helped me calm down.
After work I went and joined a gym, Planet Fitness. I’m going to be successful! I am going to go to the gym every day and I’m going to make a change. I can do this. I have 2 months before I need to go get lab work done again. 2 months to make a change for the better healthier life I want.
It’s nearly Valentine’s day. Growing up my family made Valentine’s day for me and my sisters feel pretty awesome, especially my Uncle Denny. I’ll never forget the giant pieces of chocolate we’d always get from him. We’re his Valentine’s and always will be I suppose. Which reminds me! I need to go buy some Valentine’s day cards!
In reality though, Valentine’s day shouldn’t be the only day you show your love to your loved ones. Continue reading
I was watching the news morning and there was a story about a very pretty woman, a Green Bay Packers cheerleader, who was called very hurtful names on a facebook page. She is very pretty but all these people were commenting things like “how ugly.” I just thought to myself, seriously?
I can’t help but think to myself when I hear things like that, “if they think she’s ugly, I could only imagine what people would/do say about me behind my back.”
I’m NO stranger to bullying. I was bullied most of my life in fact. Continue reading
My weekend has come to an end. I always find myself prolonging Sunday night by staying up as late I can haha. I feel as though I made some progress this weekend though. I met with a local photographer about being an intern to gain some experience. She seemed to like me too, so, let’s hope she does want to have me around!
I did the usual house related items; clean, shop and laundry. I slept and relaxed too. A successful weekend if I do say so myself!
I didn’t exercise though so tomorrow that is a must. I’m hoping that tomorrow will be a good day for me. I want to stay as motivated as I feel right now.
In other news we put up, I should say EJ put up, our focal piece for our bedroom wall. I’ll upload a picture tomorrow!
An uneventful post but it was a good weekend. Plus, the walking dead is back!
