Quick check in. Yesterday I got in a 35minute step workout. This morning I did some upper body weights ( back, biceps and core) then after work I tried out a new cardio workout that I got over the weekend. Its actually a Ninento wii game called Golds Gym cardio workout. Its mostly boxing....and I really enjoyed it! Here is a link to it on you tube if you want to check it out.

My eating today was good. Ham and eggs on a whole wheat english muffin for breakfast. A big salad and a lean hamburger on whole wheat bread and a banana for lunch. Some natural peanut butter with crackers for a snack then supper was some baked chicken with some green beans. I may get in some popcorn later....

Tomorrow will be a rest day.

Got the Weight Gain Blahs...

...this morning. My weight gain since taking zoloft has skyrocketed to 26 lbs :(

I have an appointment with my mental doc on Thursday morning and I'm going to ask him what he thinks about me lowering my dose. My mental health is great, I've never felt better in my life....but as I've said in the past, this weight gain is getting ridiculous. And I think lowering my dose may help with the weight gain as I feel I'm taking to much, there are days when I feel as if the world could come to an end I would still be like 'whatever' and just go with it.

 We'll see what he says.

Last week my workouts were great! I got in  four and plan on getting in another today. So that's five since last Monday....and my eating was good could have been better at night but I did make an effort to not eat at work and eat a little 'cleaner' through out the day. This week I plan on trying even harder.

Yesterday we did some much needed shopping...took the kids to the mall and out to eat. We stopped by  best buy and I picked up some loop bands for some of Cathe's workouts. I got that little excited feeling when I saw them - the feeling I use to get when buying new fitness toys- so that gives me hope on the journey.

I also bought the movie Dirty Dancing ( since my last copy mysteriously disappeared ) as a kind of 'none scale victory' reward.

There is one thing for sure guys...I will NEVER give up on my weight loss journey :)

August check-in

Morning, Are you having a good day? I hope you can say 'yes I am' cause I'm always having a good day when I'm not at work....
