Fit Challenge Week 25

Standard

It’s the time again to do the weekly post. I am not going to say how happy I am but I have to show this pic:    img_20161207_045058  This is to show all the progress I have made and how I know I am making progress even though my weight is not coming down like I want it to. These jeans are a pair I have not been able to put on since last year (2015).  It was probably around the fall of last year.They are a size 12. They are true to size….not big fit.  I could no longer wear them. I put them on yesterday and was ecstatic. This is why I keep on doing what I am because I know I am changing and becoming healthier everyday. By doing what I am doing, I know the weight will come off. I just have to keep doing what I am doing.

Fit Challenge – Week 24 and Monthly Check In

Standard

Another week has past and my monthly goal is here once again….hate to disappoint myself but the weight has not changed. As much as I’d like to see that number go down I am not going to beat myself up about it. The reason is I know my body is changing. I see it in my clothes when I put them on. Some fit better, some are getting too big 😀   I know I have toned my hips as well…as previously stated I lost an inch!! So on the whole, my weekly and my monthly check in may not be where I would like to be as far as pounds go but I will take any positive progress and keep moving because I know it will change. I will get there. My body and my mind know everything is changing. I just got to keep doing.

I am going to break 170 next month…12/30/2016 – 168 pounds

Fit Challenge Week 21…things that make you go hmmm…

Standard

Well with a busy week that I have been having, I slipped up. I went back to my old staple bread not because I didn’t have anything but just because it was easier. I have to break this habit. If I can break this habit I will be in a better place. I know what I have to do but I just have to remind myself everyday what I have to do. I also did eat more than I should as well. It is so easy to fall back into old ways.  I did gain  a couple of pounds back but to be honest I really do not know if it is that or due to swelling. I have been drinking plenty of water(96 ounces a day)and I have been exercising (between my Gazelle and Yoga)The weight gain could be due to that but I am not going to hold my breath. I am not going to beat myself up about it but I am going to really concentrate on the bread eating and portioning my food out each meal. If I can get that under control I will be able to get it all there.

On the flip side, I went out to buy some new exercise clothes because the ones I had have started to wear out. So I went to our favorite store in the world (sarcasm) and they had some Danskin tops on sale (always love a great sale). I bought me two tanks and one t-shirt…all under $10!! The thing that is better than that…I was able to get them in a MEDIUM!!!! 😀  It looks like I am doing something right despite of my slips this week. I’ll post pics next week once I start wearing them.

New Start…Have to do this!!!

Standard

As I have said in may posts in the last year, I am trying to get down to my ideal weight. Reality says my ideal weight is like 140 pounds. Where that is a possibility for me to do, it’s not exactly where I would feel comfortable…at least at this moment. That’s why I have set my goal at 150. That being said I have not reached the goal I wanted to. I could make every excuse in the book and I could say it’s because it’s genetic…etc. But I don’t believe that…not really. I know it was me being lazy and eating things I should not. I know it’s because I did not do the exercising I should have done. I know if I just keep my head straight I can do it. So starting today, I am resetting my goal timeframe. I am going to start again with a new year and possibilities. I realize this sounds like I am quitting but I am not. Let me say that again…I AM NOT QUITTING.

SO with everything I have just said I am posting my goals once again that I am setting for myself here:

  1. get weight down from 180 pounds to 150 pounds by June 16, 2017
  2. will make a full progress post every 4 months
  3. set monthly attainable goals
  4. post weekly to keep track
  5. eat better (limit junk food, no bread)
  6. drink more water
  7. exercise once every day (yoga, walking, strength exercises)

I know everyone here says well you are already, so you say, doing this. I know and I know that I have not been on track like I should. That is me and I will make this happen. I have to…that’s all I can say. Now I just have to keep reminding myself.
