Day # I'm tired of counting!


I woke up at 2:47 last night and was still tossing and turning at 4:30 when my husbands alarm went off.

ugh, sigh

The first thing I wanted to do is make me a bowl of sugary cereal... but I didn't. I've got some egg beaters in there and I plan on eating a breakfast sandwich before work.

I did make me some coffee and headed to facebook. There is so much negative things on FB in general but  I was pleasantly surprised to see this post. Its about bullying and this time it happened to a news anchor.

Her response lifted my spirits. No, I haven't been bullied lately but in school I was bullied a lot due to my weight. I eventually got over it and remember little now but its very damaging to a young girl. If you get a chance watch the video.

So, anyways. I have been doing very good lately. Been eating good and working out like I used too. For the month of January I haven gotten in 5 workouts a week. It feels good to get back in the swing of things.  Eating is going well too. Im logging my food and staying very close to my calorie count. I'm not a huge veggie eater so eating salads and stir fry help a lot with that. I know it takes time to start losing and it will take time for me to see some results...and I try to keep that in mind when I don't see any. Like this morning I woke up in a 'blah' mood. I headed straight for sugary cereal...and I know I don't have the calories for that and its a huge step to tell yourself that when your 'in the moment'. So my willpower is getting stronger.

Today I have to work 9:30-5. I like working in the Deli, I mean its ok...its a job ( and its better than the bakery) and im happy with my pay but I do plan on still looking for something better. I really want to work in a doctors office or a warehouse...anywhere away from food. LOL

Well, I planned on getting in a workout before work today but it looks like thats not going to happen. I will try again after work...if I don't workout today then I will just have to settle for a 4 day week.

Day #10 1/24/14 update


Its cold here in Georgia, I've got my fuzzy socks & pj's on this morning :D

I will be working out shortly, I have to work this morning 9:30-4 and I'm pretty sure I won't feel like working out after work. Still not sure what I will do? Thinking about doing some more cardio since the scale isn't budging. I know weight lifting is important to losing weight but its hard to lift weights when I know it will stall the scale.


My eating is going good. I had a high calorie day on Wednesday. We ate Chickfila for lunch ( I had a chicken sandwich and a fruit cup) and for supper hubby made some country fried steak and gravy, mac-n-cheese and mashed potatoes. I had a small pc of steak, about a 1/2 cup of each of the sides. I did however enjoy two servings of Kemps frozen yogurt. OMG...SO GOOD.

Yesterday was back on track with a lower calorie day 1440 and a 45 min step aerobics workout. I did Cathe's Step Moves on 6" step. yeahya :) I know 1440 is a very low # for me calorie wise. Today won't be quite as low..around 1700 :)

So far im really proud of myself for not giving into cravings and doing my workouts. The next few weeks I should start seeing some loose pants or some lower #'s on the scale. for that workout :)

ETA - Its now 9am and my workout is done. I did Cathe's Power hour minus core work...I will do core tomorrow. My lunch is packed for work - have a great day :)

Day # 8 ....still going.....

Good Morning,

I was a party animal last night and stayed up past my normal bedtime @ 9:30..I didn't go to sleep until midnight! I'm feeling it this morning through...kinda sleepy. We stayed up watching 'Captain Phillips' with Tom Hanks. Pretty good movie...I love Tom Hanks, he's such a good actor.

So, as the title says its day #8 and it feels like its day #108- teehee. This is the third week of 5-day-a-week exercise. Feeling really good about that. Unfortunately the scale isn't budging AT ALL. I really just want to take a sledge hammer to the damn thing. Its so discouraging to do everything right and not see any results on the scale. GAH! hubby says my butt is lifting up and I seem to be more firm everywhere. LOL..only he would notice that. haha

oh well, I will keep on trucking ...

I'm off today and so is my DH, we're headed off to the mall to look around. J.C. Penny's is having a sale on jeans for the kids. Gonna see what we can get into. We also plan on eating lunch there and I plan on getting a chicken sandwich and Chickfila ( been craving one) with a large unsweet tea. YUM.


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....
