I am using my Wii Fit plus loving the entertaining exercise much better than stairing at the room when I am on the treadmill.. One of the things I did today... I did a lot of leaning, bending and swaying and arm flapping while I tried to land my seagull self on to a pillar post in the ocean...
my arms are tired
Here are my goals...some long term & some short term:
Cut back on my diet coke & drink more water. Been doing good this week.
Lose 25 pounds before my 40th birthday. Got two years...
Lose 10 pounds before end of February for a new dress for my cousin's confirmation.
Complete 5k this spring
Doing the Couch to 5k program to achieve above goal
Cutting out a lot of carbs but trying to get healthy as well
Lots of goals, but I think I can do it. DH lost 65 pounds in a year so he thinks with exercise & eating better, I can achieve the 25 pounds much faster. First time he has been that optimistic. lol
Did not exercise today since after running errands this morning my hip was sore...I did eat well though..I ate less Choclate chip cookies(a lot less) and resisted..snacking on chips today...so far so good...
I did not exercise yesterday because I was still down or weak from being out of commission on Wed. Feeling better today & hoping to get on the treadmill sometime today. Was a little sluggish with getting all of my water in yesterday, but I only had one diet coke & I think my head is paying for it.
Also afraid I am not getting enough calories, but lets see how today goes. No carbs yesterday, except for my allowable low sugar fruits. I have never been a fan of yogurt but I so enjoyed my vanilla lite & fit yogurt last night.
Welcome to the new allergies Dawn! It is hard that is for sure!
That is my hard time, finding the time to exercise. I hate getting all messed up after showering, then to take another shower to run kids places. I know....would I like some cheese with that wine (which I would snatch out of your hand so quick!).
I want a great big sandwich with bread or after the news of the loss of DH's friend, I so wanted a great big hamburger from Red Robin. But I have held off & might have lost 6 pounds in a week.
I didn't get all my water in yesterday & I am noticing the headaches that I get if I don't. Funny how a little life changes will make you notice stuff like that. Today, I am going to hit the treadmill for sure. No extra kids & carpool until almost 3:00, so no excuses!
Way to go Dawn I really need to get on the ball I guess I could be losing weight because I cant remeber eating anything much lately to much running around...but not in sneakers in a car ut I need to and as soon asa everything slows down and I get some free time I would be glad to keep track of my exercise here...
I'm getting ready to go down stairs for day five. Wow...my weeks past quickly. I wish I was a stress starver instead of a stress eater!! But...maybe the exercise is helping with my stress too! I just weighed myself,e ven though I didn'tw ait for a full week! I'm keeping track of my food intake.
I'm going to a book club tonight> i'm thinking about NOT bringing a dish to pass. That way I would feel doubly bad for eating and not bringing! hahaha. Whatever it takes, right?
what ever it takes Dawn..I am so busy right now I forget to eat and at the end of the day I drink alot becasue I havent drank anything either. so now I carry a waterbottle where ever I go ... I did get a good meal tonight at my meating but it was just soup and salad...It wasnt a ton of food but it was very good...and a piece of cake for dessert...
I have been going up and down a lo tof stairs and walking around sotres and other stuff so I think I am getting a lot of exercise..but stress is their also so I am taking my Vit C alot because I read the article about Vit C warding off the belly fat you get from stress...which is definately where all my belly fat came from so I have been diligent with my C so my immune system is strong and the belly stress stays gone..hoping that it can help reverse it a bit too...wouldnt that be wonderful
Keep up the good work and when this is hospice stuff is all finished and over I will do my Wii fit almost everyday also. I promise!
okay, just weighed in for the week...down 2.8 pounds from last week! I'm sure part of it is just where I am at in my cycle. But...of course, not eating junk all day long helps! I'm well on my way to reaching my goal!
