Losing Weight

Oh my goodness!
I have started on my weight loss journey again! I have found a walking partner and doing Zumba on Monday and Wednesday nights! I am beyond excited for what the future holds of us! I have made an account on My Fitness Pal. If you are on there don’t be afraid to add me and we can motivate each other all the way! I am so glad I got my car back, now I feel free again. 🙂

My Fav Workouts!

 


Start at 2:50 if you don’t want to listen to her talk lol

 


I couldn’t find a better one, but it is slower than this, but you get the drift

 

Maybe you can add one of these to your workout! Have Fun!

Encouragement/Motivation

As most of you know I am trying to get back on track with my weight loss. I was 167 lbs just a few months ago; however, I am back around 186 lbs. When things get emotionally hard I turn to eating instead of talking/praying/working out. I am an emotion eater and still learning how to not be.

With losing my Grandpa and having my other Pawpaw going through bladder cancer treatments, and now rehab from back surgery, my mind often stresses/worries about the people I love. I guess I will have to bite the bullet again and push forward.

Last year at this time, I was working in my flower beds, but this year I’m not doing so. I don’t want to sweat and dig up weeds if we will eventually move in a few months.

Another thing is we are trying for another baby, since October and well I fall short every month with another disappointment. I am continuing telling myself that everything is in God’s plan, but I am still human. I still fall back into the pit of stress/worry, but I am Okay. I know I am thankful and I will continue to pray. I want to lose this weight not only because it is the right thing to do, but because I know it will make me one hot momma and it will make myself healthier in the long run.

So, Day 1 – Losing Weight – P90x Here I Come

BTW – Another thing is my car has been in the shop for 2 weeks. We do have hubby’s truck to get us to and fro, but we are packed like sardines, lol

Things WILL get better! I can DO this!

** 20 mins of P90x

Raining on my Emotions

This weekend has been amazing! Not only did I get to spend some time with my Hubby but with my family, and his. Saturday, we watched football and root on our team, till it became 21-0 and we was winning, so we scooted outside to clean up trash, and other things so when the rain wouldn’t be washing everything off the porch, and out into the yard, even including about 10 or so flower pots. (Which I need to bring in one of the bigger ones to replant a flower for the inside). I also got to get a Vera Bradley purse for $5, oh yes, I did 🙂 haha! It is really cute too.

Monday, we were at my moms most of the day. It rained most of the day Sunday, all day Monday and we had a lot of Tornado Warnings for our area. (I always love watching the weather, it is like a thrill of mine. I love to see where the “rotation” is going. I don’t get worried, but I do get excited, weird much? I say. haha) Also, my mom made Turkey Chili! Can you say, YUM!?

I can say that I also figured out I gained 8 pounds this weekend. I told yall about me gaining the 5 pounds with the medicine I was on for my infections, but they gave me a new prescription, but that 5 pounds weight gain put me in a funk, and now I added 3 pounds to it 😮 I have decided P90x 2x a day and my elliptical before bed should helped with that 8 pound gain, right? 🙂

How was your holiday weekend?

Weight Loss Journey

Hello my friends, readers, and followers.

I am here to celebrate a milestone for me! I am so in shock and simply amazed, so I am sharing it with you all.
I have not went and bought clothes since last year. I was still wearing Junior Size 17 and L-XL shirts. I can now tell you I am in a size 12! SAY WHAT!? 12 – that’s right!! I am so excited! Can’t you tell??
I even wear some Medium size shirts and some Large shirts.

I guess that 30 pounds did come off around my body haha, not just in my brain like I thought at first, or wait… Yeah, don’t ask. lol

I will be modeling clothes soon!! I can’t wait. Thanks everyone! Yall are what keeps me going, so inspiring and encouraging.

Weight-loss Plan

When I first started my weight-loss journey people would often ask ‘what diet I was doing or starting’. So, here you go how I am loosing weight, my own style.

1. I watch what I eat. (not just it going into my mouth) I watch my calories. I eat Lean Cuisines/Smart Ones/grilled vegetables. I try to not take in more than 300 calories for lunch. Breakfast is a small bowl of cereal, or a banana. Snack is a sweet. Supper is something simple, but sometimes not, just depends.
I don’t like how people find a diet and think it will work for them. I wanted something I do myself, without getting rid of everything I love to it. I believe the biggest thing in loosing weight is self-control.

2. Eat sweets before 6pm, so that way your body has time to get the sugar out of your system. If you go to bed with sugar in your stomach than your body is resting, your body then stores the extra sugar as fat.
What!? I can have sweets?? OH YES! But don’t over do it.

3. Drink tea, flavored water, or diet sodas. I have really cut back on sodas, but sometimes I crave them. At least with a diet drink it is 0 calories and just drink it before 6pm (remember sugar). Also, if I get a 20 oz bottle, I will not drink the whole thing. Also, I can not drink plain water. I get sick to my stomach. So, you can packets to pour into your water. 0 grams of sugar, and only 5 calories per glass! Fruit Punch, Grape, Blackberry Grape, and the energy packs are my favorite! 🙂 Yummy to my tummy, haha!

4. Workout – elliptical/Wii/Outside
I try to workout for an hour on the Wii then 15-20 minutes at night on the elliptical. I also watch calories then try to burn half of the calories I take in that day. Example: If I take in 1000 Calories then I try to burn 500 calories. That would be 30 minutes on the elliptical. I know sometimes it is hard to track your calories as with being a SAHM I tend to forget to write down my calories. I use to use Sparkpeople but never really took the time to learn the website, but it does have a great way to watch your calories and keep track of exercise 🙂

So, now you know what I do. Nothing hard, nothing out of the ordinary, but you can do it too!

I do take a diet pill, but just so you know I lost between 5-8 pounds before I even went to the doctor to help me. When I first started my weight-loss I was 198 pounds. I had no energy, what so ever. That is the reason I reached out for help. Here I am 4 months or so later and 30 pounds lighter. I don’t take the diet pill everyday. I take it for 3 months, then off for 3 months.

People who start loosing weight buy a scale and stand on it religiously, well I don’t. I do not weight myself till I go to the Doctor for a check up on my weight loss. I don’t want to disappoint myself with looking at a scale if I gained 1 pound one day! I believe that you can weigh yourself maybe 1x a month, but your body will gain and loose weight. Don’t get discouraged if you gain a few pounds, just keep doing what you are doing. Your body is adjusting 🙂

Anyone could lose weight, all they have to do is figure out if it is really important to them. 🙂 I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday!!

July’s Weight Loss Update

It has been a month since I posted about my personal challenge of weight loss. I am currently off the diet pill and still working out when I can. I am still pushing myself to the limits as I see my goal before my eyes!

I went to the doctor for my weight loss check-up and I have lost another 5 pounds! – Hello, 167! That’s right! I would celebrate with some ice cream or brownies, but I have passed, but boy if it wasn’t tempting!

I also visited with my mom yesterday. Hubby had to go to class after the doctor’s appointment, so Jade and I spent the rest of the day with my mom. We went out to eat at a Mexican restaurant. Jade loves the chip and dip as much as I do. They even had a band playing right before it was time for us to leave. Jade even got up to dance, walked closer to see the band perform. However, we went back to the table to get our leftovers and the band followed us. Jade was okay with the little 4 man crew till they stepped closer to our booth. She was scared, and starting yelling, she pointed her finger to the door and said, “Go to TRUCK, Nana”, but the band backed a way a little bit and she seemed to be okay. It was a great time anyway. We left from the restaurant to go to my mom’s house. I helped with fixing her bark as the rain misplaced it in the cul-de-sac. Jade helped to by holding down the rocks in the neighbors flower bed.

Overall, yesterday was fun, but unfortunately all days have to come to an end.

How was your Wednesday?

Weight-Loss Update!

Most of my readers know I was going through a hard time in May. Dealing with just normal battles that gets thrown at you. I did manage to lose another 6lbs!!! OMG. I was so grateful to have lost weight. It was such a rough month for me. I have, however, have lost 19lbs since the beginning!!! Beginning of which was April. I am down to 172 🙂 I am soooo happy!! I will be taking my “diet-pill” through this month as well. Which I am thankful for! Also, I went to the doctor to tell him about my allergies. I haven’t been able to breathe, my throat is itchy, Im coughing like you got something caught in your throat, it is horrible… Well, I ask before I leave if I could have a shot. He told me No. I then begged him, he looked at me and said, nope, the shot will make you gain weight. Hmmmph! Well that solved that, so I did get some pills though, I am hoping it will help and I sure as heck dont need anything that will make me gain weight :/
On some more important news…

My Pawpaws Birthday was yesterday. I called him to wish him a happy birthday, least I thought so. I got told that they went in and had to “scoop” out a growth in his bladder, which is cancer, but we wont know which kind till next week. They don’t think it will be anything serious, but they will still send it off. It didn’t have roots or any attention to spread. So, I called Pawpaw today to tell him I did call, and glad to hear he is back home and doing well. He wasn’t in the hospital long, just a few hours, but anything can be worrisome. So that just added to my “month” of bad things happening. But of course I will pray that all this will end, maybe eventually I can even breath again.

Ohhhh, on a good note. I did work out in my “landscaping” today. It was nice to get outside and watch my work come to life. I just need to transplant some more “monkey grass” (thats what we call it here in the south). Till Tomorrow my friends.

May 29th Diet

Well, this month has been highs and lows 😦
My motivation keeps slacking every time I turn around. This month its been bladder infections off and on for 2 weeks, not going to the bathroom like I should, a crappy womanly flow and just blah! I have been busy with all my projects but my motivation has been lacking. I want to get things done, but don’t feel the energy to find it. (Sorry if some of you are at a TMI moment)

So, What I ate today…

Breakfast: 1 cup cereal 1/2 cup 2% milk
Lunch: Nodda
Snack: Nodda
Dinner: Double Cheeseburger meal (only ate the burger and around 10 fries) with a sweet tea (Water is always gross there).

Exercise: my eyes when I go to sleep

I have tooooooo find my motivation!!! It is one of those jvnjfnvjnjnvjndv moments. HA! Tomorrow, will be another day to try to get my feet off the ground!
