talk myself out of it....but did I listen??? umm NO

makes up for the bad eating

the scale keeps climbing and I keep craving those bad bad foods that taste so good
whats been happening?
-started to get back on exercise bandwagon...then days go by like i've 'forgotten'
-pants are a bit tighter
-shirts a little bit snug
-little out of breath when I walk to the top of my hill
-arms are looking a bit flabbier then before
-scale is up 15pds.....
----what can I do...start eating proper and getting daily exercise
funny how its not rocket science....but its freekin hard

Monday, July 6, 2009
it all started with my bootcamp obsession and my revved up metabolism...i was hungry all the time and I would eat anything I wanted because I was working out 'so hard' and
'burning lots of calories.' over compensating for my workouts...
then I just got lazy and then I was just self-destructive.....scared of succes
makes me frusterated to have this bump in the road....
Just tried on some pants to keep warm since it was a cold and rainy day here today and they are TIGHT....reason to panic and get back on the wagon....
Another reason to get my but in gear is that I have volunteered to work at WW each wednesday of this month....
anyways i have hidden hubbies candy and had him through out a couple of my other temptation foods in the house-- should be on a clean eating path now...

I was confident I didn't want to hassle, the pain, the commitment, the responsibility, the diapers, the Stress, the cost or the burden
i was confident I didn't need the love, the reward and all those positive feelings that come along with them....
Now 'everyone' is doing it....I know like 30 people that have babies/are pregnant etc
I see the joy, the excitment, the pride, the happiness...
Am I going to miss out?
Can hubby and I handle kids? He can't even commit to walking the dog on a regular basis...what about a child.....???
Hmmmm. Is it peer pressure ? Or interest ?
But for now I will go to boot camp this morning and keep losing weight so if we do deceide we are taking that step I can be happy and healthy...

Should I. Run? Should I aquafit? Should I go to the gym? Should I sign up again??? Hmmmm each is good but what will hold My attention the best and give the best results
One thing i've noticed sbouky bootcamp is that I work out so hard I'm hungry alllllll the time which leads me to eat, and often they are bad choices...I,ve started packing snacks with me but its still leading me away from ww
Anyways gotta go

atleast I didn't cry..... wow- I've been looking on the internet and it sounds as though I could possibly be like some people when they start exercising strenuously to have a large gain....it may be getting towards TOM--- or it could be some bad eating? but 5 pds???
all I want to to is barf and exercise...bad I know but a little sad about the whole thing

Joined a bootcamp and have gotten motivated trying different things.... the camp is fun- lots of intervals and different stations- using muscles I havn't felt in a LONG TIME.... which is a super duper great thing :)
went 2 times on friday and may actually go again toniht!!- figure if I was on the biggest loser I'd be working out 8 hrs a day so 2 cant hurt if I can acutally fit it in :)
I bought a journal today- I've been thinking about starting to keep one- like a little book of motivation- wanted to put some pictures in it, excerpts from my facebook wall of all the comments I've been getting- quotes and sayings that would help keep me going- but I just sat down to start prepping the information for inside the book and I really wonder if I should or not....................... my thoughts were this should be a bit of a journal for me (if I can post more frequently) and how many times have I had bulletin boards or magazine clips around-- did they motivate me? did I even look at them or did it provide any guidance or inspiration??????
so not sure what to do- I think I'll do some laundry and then get back to crackin the journel and see what I think then :)
hope all is well out there in blog land

Basically its a sensor you attach to your shoe and a gadget you plug into your ipod that tracks the distance you've travelled, plays music and talks to you, measures calories burned and tells you your pace... a really great tool for motivation and tracking....I
once you have the sensor and the plug-in(not required for new iphones and ipod touches) the Nikeplus website is free were you can set goals, join chalenges etc...anycase- i have to say it is pretty much the coolest thing I've see in awhile (however I havn't got to experience the 'coolness' of the WII Fit)
anyways is anyone from here already on the nikeplus website? is so check out my 100km for 100pds to lose challenge :)

I resolve to ... re-learn how to play piano (after a 12 year hiatus) - tried once
I resolve to ... do more good deeds! --never did? I don' think
I resolve to ... spend more time/stay better connected with family & friends * in process
I resolve to ... not spend as much time on Facebook! *HOORAY
I resolve to ... update my Blog more frequently *did for a while then stopped
I resolve to ... not let work stress me out so much * in process
I resolve to ... be more active and healthy *HOORAY*
Goals for Healthy Living Challenge- 2008
Lose and maintain 75 pounds --not quite lost 40 from 295-255
Exercise 4 days a week -- 2-3
Exercise for min of 20 mins each time- increasing to 40mins by Dec. -- was 35-45 mins
Learn not to "romanticize" food. My husband often tells me its all I think about- landmark locations by resataurants, reminese about trips by the food we ate. etc *** NOT SURE HOW TO STOP- STILL A PROBLEM FOR ME
Celebrate the little things/enjoy the journey(started this already- set up a secondary blog for my Non-Scale Victories in life- you'll see the link off my main page) ***yes
Stick to my new years resolutions that impact my whole life- not just weight loss * not really
Hmm ok... new goals ??
Short Term: 3 days a week, 30+mins each time (even if its just a walk or 2hrs of curling)
- based on 3 days a week * 52 weeks that means I would like to exercise 156 times- new tracker for that (I'm behind by a week so I gotta speed up)
Daily: Follow Plan, Journel, Water
would like to finish up some of those things listed above.....
Looking forward to a weekend at home after all the travelling , doing some cleaning, reorganizing grocery shopping, curling etc...
Hope yours is a good one :)
Thursday, January 8, 2009
Hopefully this weekend I'm going to get sometime to do a year in review, pull up my old new years resolutions and evaluate how I did...
If anyone is still out there great....if not I hope to find you again :)
Make it a great day!
Links to the past
Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!
What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
