I have not done well this week. Oh well. I am going to relax and enjoy the holidays. I will focus on my goals again with a new competition this January.

Today I have made a commitment to restart my working out and trying to make healthier food choices. I have kinda been eating terrible the past week. Way too many kind neighbors with yummy Christmas treats, too many Christmas parties with delicious goodies and too many yummy snacks at work. I have given in and now it is hard to eat my celery and carrots! Today I passed up the homemade cookies brought to us last night. I had to let my kids and husband eat them all so I wouldn't be tempted. This time of the year is so hard!

This week has gone by so fast and I only made it to the gym 2 times. Oh well. I guess I will just do what I can.

Well, I don't like the numbers that are on my scale right now. I did pretty good on Thanksgiving, but I had trouble with the left overs! I had 2 pieces of pie yesterday! Oh well, I am getting back on track today. I went to the gym this morning and ran extra to try and make up for this weekend.

Hello, I haven't had time to exercise at all this past week. I am excited for Thanksgiving and am going to try hard to stay in control of my eating. Holidays are so hard.

This week has been another rough one! I am in process of switching jobs and the training for my new one is very stressful! I didn't get time to exercise very much last week but I think (for the most part) I stayed on track with trying to make healthy food choices. Usually during stressful times I would eat, eat, eat to feel better. Then I would end up getting more stressed out because I was pigging out. So I am thankful for my balance eating habits that I have been learning the past 14 months.

This week is going to be a challenge to exercise. I have to work a lot more than usual and If I do exercise it will have to be in the evenings (which is nearly impossible when my 4 kids are bugging me.) I have tried working out from home but my 2 year old is always "helping" me. We will see how it goes.

I totally forgot about the weigh-in. I remembered in the middle of the night on Saturday, so I got up got ready for work on Sunday (5am) without thinking about in again until I was walking out the door. My weight this month is fully clothed and I had already eaten/drank water. So 165 is really 160ish. This is awesome for me. I am not really even trying to diet (I was a little obsessed before). I am just making healthier choices and the weigh is still coming off. YEAH.

Halloween time! I love it. I must have to say I did splurge and have a delicious Pumpkin frosted sugar cookie (but only one instead of my normal 2 or ...5.) I have been going strong exercising but I can say I am only down about 4 or 5 lbs this month. I guess I have lost my focus on losing weight I am just more focused on toning up my body now.

This has been a weird week. Everyone keeps freaking out that I am still trying to lose weight and I must say I am starting to doubt myself. My friends and family keep telling me that I should not lose anymore weight. Has anyone else had this experience? It is kind of a downer to my spirit. My mom and husband are both worried that I am going to become a bean-pole and lose my curves. I still would like to lose 10-20 more pounds but I am not getting support from those dear to me. I don't know if I should continue this journey or just be happy where I am flucuating between 162-167 lbs.

HI, I am bloggin! Yah I didn't space it this time. My husband is out of the country so I am alone with my 4 kids! Trying to exercise is a joke. I was able to do a 20min Pilates video today with my 2 and 4 year old both helping! Hopefully I keep going strong with my weight loss.

Oh I am so terrible at blogging! I have done well this week with the weight loss, I lost 4 lbs so far. I worked over 40 hours this past Fri, Sat, Sunday and didn't even think about the fact that I did not blog. Oh Well! I guess the most important thing to me is that I have the motivation to lose the weigh from this competition, to me it is not about the money (even though it would have been nice.)

I have been working out with my husband at the gym, my mother-in-law was visiting us so she could watch the kids. She has now left and we can no longer go workout together, one of us has to stay home to watch the boys. I am not getting a good work-out anymore! I didn't realize it but having my husband with me actually pushed me to work out harder.

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

I did really terrible this weekend! We went to Lagoon yesterday and I gave in to the french fries and fry sauce! I have gotten back on track today. I even worked out at the gym for a good 1 1/2 hours.

Hi, I am so excited to start this weight loss competition! I need the motivation and accountability to exercise and eat right. I think this competition is just the thing to help me to eat and exercise the way I need to for weight loss.
