Weigh-ins

I have not blogged in a while. Not for any good reason, I just keep going on again off again. It is always the same old thing. But I have been doing my weigh-ins, so that is something. I know I will not reach my goal of losing 100 pounds in a year and I am ok with that. It is not that I have given up or that I am not going to try. I just know that that goal is no longer realistic. I have not set a new goal, just to do better. I still let myself have allowances and that is ok.
So, doing good for now :)

Today

One day at a time. I have been off for a while (some would say I have always been a little off...ha!) The other day someone said to me "You cannot expect results if you are not doing the work". So true! So I thought to myself, "I am always going to be this weight and I need to just be ok with it, because I am not doing anything to change that". But today I exercised. I really don't have an excuse for not exercising every day. I mean, I have an elliptical in my living room for crying out loud! It wasn't much but something is better than nothing.
1 mile -- 25 minutes -- 225 calories
And I am drinking a ton of water too. I have been having 2-3 juices a week and I really need to step that up too.
I guess that is all for now.

On Again

Getting back on the band wagon. Is that the right saying? Anyways, tomorrow morning I am getting up at 5 to exercise on my poor neglected eliptical. Olivia is finally sleeping through the night so I am getting a decent amount of sleep. Her wake-up time is still all over the place, but hopefully she will sleep in for me to at least exercise.
I went about 2 weeks without having a juice :( I figured out a way to make it easier. Normally, I have to take my computer in the kitchen, which is where my recipes are, go through the produce in my fridge and figure out what juice I can make. But now. One day a week I will get out all my produce and seperate it all out into recipes and put them all into ziplock bags. That way, each morning I just pull out a bag, I don't have to think about it! I think that I really need to do a juice fast or some kind of cleanse. I just don't think I have the will power though. I am going to step up the juicing though, to at least 2 a day, if not 3.
Wish me luck!

Hhmmm

I have been feeling lately like it is just really not going to happen for me. We have been eating out too much and I have not been exercising. But I still have a juice every few days and I have been walking a lot lately. I have seen a slight loss on the scale so that's good. I guess that is all for now. Sigh...

Great News! Right?

About a month ago I went to the doctor. You know how every weight loss commercial says "consult a physician before starting a new weight loss regiment", so I did. The doctor called with the results the other day. No high blood pressure, no high cholesterol, no elevated anything. So, I am healthy, despite being overweight. That is great, right? Except now that is one less thing that I have to motivate me to lose weight. On The Biggest Loser, all of the contestants see a doctor and have all these tests done. Most of them find out that they have all of these conditions or potential for getting these bad things. I might have written more but the kids are up now.
Ps. I have not posted my weigh-ins because it has been the same.

Ten Pounds Down...a million to go

I have lost 10 lbs since I got back from the States, just over a month. That is great! Right? I would be celebrating if I had been doing everything I could, if I felt like I actually earned that 10 lbs. I lost that 10 lbs with the little that I did. I am somewhat upset that I did not do better, I could have lost so much more. One day at a time, right?
So, I have been browsing the internet for healthy freezer meals. Most of the meals I came across last night had amounts of cheese that I thought were just too much. How can a recipe be healthy if it has that much cheese in it!?! I spent almost an hour seraching for healthy recipes that were not too completcated and did not have wierd ingredients that I have never even heard of. I got so frustrated! So for now I am going to just make those small adjustments. Last night's spaghetti was made with rice noodles. It was all mushy but the taste was ok.
I am still going through ups and downs, I think I ALWAYS will. But I think as long as I have more ups than downs I will be ok. I am just having such a hard time staying away from the crap food, and I am still not exercising as much as I need to be.

My New Best Friend

http://www.nordictrack.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product2_12401_10301_79609_-1_19053

This is my new best friend. It is a love/hate relationship right now. Yesterday I did 25 minutes and today I did 30 minutes. Both days I had appointments which did put a time constraint on my workouts (which I am secrectly grateful...lol) I am hoping to spend more time with my new best friend. I really thought that working out on the eliptical was going to motivate me to eat better. But what did I eat right before bed last night? Chocolate and milk! Ugh! Those Mother's Day chocolates! It will get better. I know that it will get easier to say no.
Well, like I said, I have another appointment to get to. One day at a time!
