One Week In...

and down 5lbs.. 220 this morning.. whoot. (just one whoot, don't want to get too carried away!)

I think I am going to give Atikins a shot. Have never tried it, gotta try all the "diets" out there ya know! I'll still track calories on spark people, as I think I could very easily go overboard just eating meat and butter, lol!

I'll keep ya posted.. I know you'll be on the edge of your seats...

So weighed in today, 225. Not proud or happy about it, but it is what it is. I've gained 17lbs since early September. I could give you lots of excuses, but bottom line. I gained because I ate. ALOT. EVERYTHING.

What we need to focus on now is getting back on track, and finding a way to make it a life style and something I can do long term. I can't be "on" and "off" it's not healthy and not productive.

Today is a new day...

*this post was made on Dec 28th, but won't post from my laptop, so just getting around to posting now from my desktop.. I'm down to 220-221 this morning...*

Track... where's the Track?

'cause I gotta get back on it! Between Thanksgiving (2 huge meals) and then girls trip to the States and eating out alot, and enjoying yummy yummy Mexican food, I"m sure I've gained like 10lbs. I don't even want to get on the scale for 2 weeks, just get the weight down first. But who are we kidding. I'll probably get on it Tuesday morning.

Anyways I am feeling pretty full/disgusting/gluttonist (word?) pretty much disgusting so I know i'm ready to get back to a much healthier lifestyle. This will include clean eating, exercising and a positive attitude!

I have a goal of about 15-25lbs I'd like to lose by March 2011 (because i'm going to Hawaii!!!)

FINALLY hit the 60lbs lost mark. Those dang 2lbs have been hanging around for a month (read I have not lost anything in a month). So I am now 208, which means soo close to being in "one-der-land" (as copied from one of my fav. weight loss bloggers) and 13lbs from my 'wedding weight'. I plan to get my body fat tested next time I go home (read; get to the big city). Last time I was at 28% so curious what I'm at now, I still have lots of "fat on me" lol.

Time to Check In

So the summer is winding down, and I guess i've been slacking on the posting! Glad to say that I have not let up on my fitness/health goals. I've had a few week moments but I embarrassed them and took them as a well deserved break.

I'm at 210 right now, and have been for 2 weeks. I reeeeeally want to break the 210, 208 would bring me to 60lbs lost, and then of course to break the 200's!!! Which really is only 10 (11) lbs away.. I"m hoping to reach this by Canadian thanksgiving (Oct 11th).

I've been hitting the gym 4-6X a week, alternating between lower and upper body weight routines and cardio, alternating between HITT and long slow runs. I'm starting to see some definition in my arms, but it's very slight, still lots of fat there. I'm going to get hubby to do picks on sat. I haven't done in a long time... and I know it's important, I just to get around to doing it!

Some NSV (non-scale victories) i've had this summer:
  • I have to do my ipod band up tighter these days
  • jeans I bought a month ago (size 16) which were very snug, now go on with ease
  • I shop in regular size stores now
  • I have a HUGE piles of clothes I need to drop off to charity
  • I didn't have to wiggle in to the plastic outside chairs at my MIL's this summer (it was a tight fit last summer)
  • my 'travel' wedding band (had to stop wearing my regular set in Jan) is now getting loose, soon I won't have any rings to wear :( will get them all sized when i'm at goal)
  • I'm almost 100lbs lighter than my husband (who's 6'8" 305lbs) we've been as close as 30lbs apart before
