Trying to regroup and get back before I gain anymore wt!!!!

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Its been a month since I blogged about anything and one of my goals was to do this 3-4 times a week even if it was just a few words. So tonight is my first blog of the week. Its 1130pm and I need to go to bed cause I have to be up at 5:30am for a long day tomorrow. First 12.5hrs at work then an hour mandatory meeting after work then to the gym for much needed cardio!
I have fallen down a little and am pulling myself back hopefully! I didn't log food for 5 days and I track all meals and cals. I have eaten out more than ever this past few days and who really knows what my cals have been. My exercise has been mim. 2 50 min days of strength training but no cardio, A couple days I honestly felt so exhausted I could hardly do anything. I had thoughts of is this worth all the extra time and energy?
I have made good progress since I got really started Jan 27th its been slow but I also have been fighting the Big M (menopause) I don't even want to say it! Sorry if any men are reading but..... I wont get in to it don't worry LOL. I just feel UGH!!!!!!!!! I also finally started a new job and that's pretty stressful in it self I guess.
I just feel like I am letting my self down. I have been told that I except to much from myself and I need to stop this and be realistic about things.( My dtr) I do try to push myself and sometimes it is disappointing not to be able to do what you think you can. So I am looking at my goals and plan again!!! I am doing several challenges at this time maybe that will help to keep me in line again. I did get a trainer to help me with strength training, balance and flexibility which I do not have any of these. I have to work hard cause it is not cheap and I want my moneys worth!!!! I think after a week with her I need to see if we can step it up cause I am not achy any more. I will see her on thursday am so I will let you know if I survived the workout or not!! LOL
So I have vented a little and felt sorry for me enough. I actually am blessed I can do this and have the time to get healthy. I need to get of the POT and MOVE again, I did track my food today for the first time in 5 days!!! So thanks for listening to me carry on some. I guess I needed it...

Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!! Smile and Be Happy!!

    Nice to see that you got your mojo back. Please do not beat yourself up over falling off the wagon, we all do it at one time or another. I like that you have made some changes and have a clear plan in mind to achieve your goals in the best manner suited to your needs. Hang in there & remember that I am here for you if you need me. Just remember all that you have accomplished and look towards the future, not at the past when a few mistakes were made. You can rise above this and come out on top fit and healthy. emoticon emoticon

    Mom...you are amazing and can accomplish anything you want. You do tend to expect results that only a superhero can achieve and I hate seeing you disappointed in yourself.

    You have made amazing progress and I am so proud of you. The journey might be slower and longer than you expect but remember its a journey that will last forever because we will never be plus size again!!!

    I love you and remember each day how much you inspire me to work harder and be a better person!
