Rough week.

I’ve been having a rough week. I knew at last week’s weigh in that it would be up a little. I wasn’t wearing my usual weigh in clothes and since I had been sick I wasn’t doing my usual best.

This week has been about the same. I haven’t been tracking religiously, we’ve been really busy and every time I’ve gone to the gym this week it’s been very difficult. I haven’t been able to keep up with the pace I’ve been doing. I’m assuming this is from not exercising the week before because I was sick.

So I think I’m up another pound. I’m hoping to track everything today and go to the gym this evening and go to my meeting tomorrow morning for a fresh start. Though, I really feel like I could use a nap.

In other news, I made some more spinach fruit smoothies but didn’t have yogurt, so I didn’t think it would matter much but my husband, who has had one so far said, yes, it matters. It was too thick and not sweet at all. So, I froze the ones I made and will pick up some yogurt tonight and when they thaw i’ll blend in some yogurt and hopefully that helps.

I’m hoping to have a good weekend and hoping I can sleep in on Sunday. I feel really tired today!

Life & Me, Losing Weight, Motivation, weight watchers

Things are finally dying down

We’ve had a lot of things to do within the past 2 months. February and March was jam packed with weekend trips, EJ’s birthday and more!

We’re finally at the point where we don’t have anything planned until May 26th, our friend’s wedding reception in Louisville. Then after that, nothing until my bridal shower on July 15th.

All of this means it’s been weeks since I’ve been to weight watchers as well. Not to mention, I haven’t been tracking.

So, today, I plan to try and start tracking. I know my week might be a little off but I need to jump back on the tracks!

I’ve had a banana so far and have a pack of oatmeal too.
Lunch I have some rice with onions, green peppers and smoked turkey sausage.
Snacks I have a yoplait light yogurt with granola, WW string cheese, strawberries and blackberries and pretzels if I want something else.

5 months until my wedding! I have until July to lose weight and then stay close to that weight because I’m taking my dress in for alterations in July. 🙂

In any case, wish me luck to get back on track! I’m going to need some support!

Oh yea, here’s one of our engagement photos 🙂 I can link you to more if you would like.

Exercise, Motivation

Busy weeks.

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve weighed myself again with all the chaos we have going on right now.

I’m going to try my best to remember to weigh myself tomorrow morning. I also want to try and wake up at a better time than I have been lately. I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately.

Eating good has been kind of difficult lately. We’re broke at the moment with all the stuff we have going on and so therefore I’m not always eating the best stuff possible for me.

I walked a lot this weekend and danced a lot at the concerts we went to so that’s good. I walked for 30 mins last night and then quit because I was so friggin tired. My allergies are terrible right now. So much for only having fall allergies.

I plan to exercise every night this week though and we’ll see what I weigh tomorrow morning.

I believe we’re having pork chops, couscous and veggies for dinner. I’m determined to watch my portion size tonight. Wish me luck.

On Plan

Slowly getting back on track!

I’ve been getting back on track. Eating pretty good and exercising more.

I need to find a different meeting to attend for the next few weeks. I have so much going on each Saturday for the next month or so that it’s necessary. I really enjoy the meetings and like the conversation and etc that goes on. So, I might attend one during the week after work for now.

Life is so busy and the weather is so nice I don’t want to be inside blogging lately. I apologize but have no fear I’m still trying hard every day! I’d love to reach my goal of 199 by March 31st! Let’s see how it goes! That’s like 6 pounds I believe! Maybe 7.


My Health, On Plan

Finally got to weigh in….

And…I gained 3.4 pounds. Really not that bad. I can totally lose that again!

I tracked yesterday and partly on Saturday and Sunday. I plan to track the rest of the week as well.
I exercised for half an hour yesterday and hopefully an hour tonight.

All in all I feel pretty good the past couple days. I’m sure the 70 degree weather helps a lot. I am going to go and pick up a bathing suit today to ensure I have a cute and comfortable one for our weddingmoon in Mexico!

That’s all I have to report today. I do have a follow up DR appt on Friday so here’s to hoping my blood pressure has come down.

On Plan

No weigh in for awhile. Need strength!

We didn’t have internet this past weekend forgive me for lack of an update!

We did go to Columbus for the evening though to visit some of our friends and the fiance had to DJ. So, I did not get to my usual Saturday morning WW meeting. I ate ok this weekend. Could’ve been better, could’ve been worse.

I weighed myself yesterday morning and still at 205.  That’s up 3 pounds from my last WW weigh in. It’s not bad, I know but it still sucks. I need to get to the grocery store to buy us some decent food! We don’t have much at home right now.

I also wanted an egg mcmuffin today and gave in to that. I need to walk on my lunch for sure and this evening.

We’re going to Buffalo, NY this weekend where I’m from and all of my family still is. EJ has to DJ there on Saturday so I get to see my family on Friday and Sunday for sure. I’m very excited to see my sister and her new puppy and home!

BUT I’m VERY nervous for eating. I feel like it’s near impossible to eat healthy there. I’m trying to make a plan so I don’t go overboard and either stay where I’m at OR hopefully lose a pound or 2 this week.

I hope to buy us some oatmeal for breakfast. Grab some yogurt for snacks and some fruit for us. Maybe even some lean cuisine’s for our lunches or some tuna sandwiches or something simple yet healthy and easy. That way dinner’s aren’t too bad for the day.

The following weekend is EJ’s birthday but I should still be able to hit up weigh in that day. So I have until then to turn things around.

Wish me luck!

Lost the weekend weight!

I woke up and weighed myself as I usually do and the scale said 207  (my scale is 2 pounds more than the WW scale) SO, I’m back to my weight I was last Saturday!

WOO! I’m very excited. I didn’t work out as hard yesterday but I did walk for 30 minutes on my lunch and walked for about 40 minutes last night. The house was hectic so I couldn’t do what I usually do but, it was better than nothing.

I’m starting to get to the point where I feel guilty if I don’t exercise and that’s an amazing feeling in and of itself. That’s my non scale victory of the week and I feel awesome about it.

I ate pretty good yesterday. My dinner only put me 1 point over my daily and then I had a bowl of multi grain peanut butter cheerios and my exercise paid for those!

So, I feel pretty awesome and on track today. My meal plan for today:

Breakfast: I had a pack of weight control banana bread oatmeal and some fruit with 1tbsp of fruit dip.
Lunch: I have a lean cuisine pizza. I think it’s about 10 points.
Snack: I brought carrots, yogurt and string cheese and have the trusty stash of pretzels at my desk. So, depending on what I want I should be good!
Dinner: We’re having tuna sandwiches and EJ always makes them so good. He puts some onion, red pepper and seasons it so well. I love it. And we bought a corn and black bean side and we’ll have that with it too. I should have a decent day.

I plan to walk for 30 minutes on my lunch again and exercise this evening as well.

Anxiously waiting for my wedding coordinator to call me between 11 and 12!

I gained, already? UGH

So, when I’m feeling good I often forget to track and pay attention to my food. And, I was in a really good mood this weekend and yesterday. I weighed myself this morning (I have to, it helps me stay motivated to keep going to see when I’ve done bad!) and I gained some weight back after such a good loss last week.

Where did I go wrong? I know what I did wrong, it’s not a question.

I didn’t plan ahead all weekend and just ate.
Yesterday, I ate a little too much for dinner. BUT, I did exercise on lunch and at home.

I’ve done well so far today and plan on measuring and really tracking my dinner. I also plan to dig out my 3 month tracker and use it the rest of the week and try planning ahead more often.

I hope to at least get back to where I was for my WW meeting by this week’s meeting.

I’ll see how much I gained tomorrow morning for sure.

In wedding news, I created a wedding blog for us, so, if you’re curious you can swing on over there and check it out. This way I don’t overload my healthy me blog with wedding stuff. haha.

It’s a new day….right?

I just need to keep reminding myself that it’s a new day and that just because I had a bad/good weekend. (Bad for food, but ultimately I felt awesome.)

I did have a great week last week and lost 3 lbs! That was awesome, but I was in such a good mood this weekend that I didn’t plan ahead for my food and I ate pretty bad.

I did go to the grocery store last night and come out with a very nice and healthy haul. Lots of frozen veggies, fruit, multi grain cheerios, yogurt, ww string cheese and more. We did really good. I made myself a good lunch for today and tomorrow. Though next time I need to make a little less rice. But still 9 points for a lot of awesome steamed broccoli, carrots, pea pods, about 1 cup of rice and some orange sauce. It was very tasty!

This weekend was fun though. I met up with my good friend Joey for some lunch at Olive Garden. I had all my daily and weekly points so I wasn’t worried. After lunch she and I made a trip over to David’s Bridal and I tried on some wedding dresses and I think I found one I reallly like. It looks awesome on me and is very beachy!

I would like to go back this weekend and try it on again and spend a little more time in it. I was very in and out this weekend and I need to spend a little more time in it and make sure it’s comfortable and I really like it. I’m going to make sure my hair is curled real nice and wear the flower I plan to wear in my hair and put some make up on and try to get the full effect!

I can’t wait!

Anyways, we’re having pork roast for dinner and I’m not sure what else. I should find out though.

And I did walk for 35 minutes on my lunch break. It’s a new day, every day. No need to give up the rest of the week right? RIGHT!

A good loss this week!

I did it, after a few weeks of back and forth between 208 and 206 I broke it and today weighed in at 205.6.

A loss this week of 3.2
And a total loss of 16.2!

THIS IS AWESOME!!!! My 10% goal is 199.8. I AM SO CLOSE!

I want that 10% keychain!!!

In other news I went and picked out a wedding dress today. I felt really good in it, I’ll feel even better in it by the time September rolls around. 🙂

Now, I need to buy it. haha. Then I can start looking for jewelry to wear and sandals and some new spanx. Those are a must, and maybe a good bra.

I went to the olive garden with my good friend Joey this afternoon. I haven’t tracked yet but we did soup salad and breadsticks and shared some tiramisu. Thankfully I have all my weekly points to use. I’ll have to track later because I wanted to blog first! haha.

I wish I could show you all the dress but I don’t want to let the fiance see it!
