baack! after a long ass weekend!

I would love to say I did great on my Weight Watcher's weigh in.
but nope.
I'm up a pound and a half!

can I tell ya how frustruating this is?
I did everything I was supposed to.. all week..
I even ate perfectly on Thxgiving..
I ran a 10k for craps sakes!
oh yeah..
 I ran a 10k! In 1:07..
not too bad for a fat chick, eh?

but I don't know what else to do.
the hubs says.. "maybe since you've lost so much, so fast.. it is just taking longer now".
he's kinda smart like that sometimes.

this week.
I'm desperate.
I'm going to have a protein shake for breakfast.. with a piece of fruit.
A protein shake for lunch with a small salad.
and a good dinner.
some good healthy snacks too.

I really want to blame the new meds.. but they are supposed to help LOSE weight.. not gain it.

I need to get back into my weight training program.. (another suggestion from the hubster)

yoga twice a week isn't enough for me.
jogging four to five times a week isn't enough for me.

I need to be diligent and persistant with this.
I need to figure out why I can't lose this last 20ish pounds.. or hell.. even five would make me happy!

k.. here's a really crappy pic of me n my yoga teacher.. isn't she darling?
try not to get dizzy looking at it.
I may try to get another.. but that may be a while.. it was kinda weird asking the first time :)

I am so excited for Yoga tonight. It is truly my "me" time.
I enjoy it to no end. I can't even describe how I feel when I am hitting the poses. Sweating. Meditating. Stretching.
When I first started, I could barely do any of the poses..
now.. I am not a pro.. but getting there.
I can do almost all these ^
I think I'll ask my cute lil teacher for a pic tonight so I can show you how cute she is!

another one bites the dust

down a pound!
an entire pound..
not half.. not 3/4

an ENTIRE pound..

is it pathetic that I'm so excited to have lost a pound?
it's finally going in the right direction!

I also got my fruit n veggie basket.. lemme tell ya people!
I about died when I saw all the goodies I got this time..
the usual veggies n entire laundry basket full.
I got some squash or zucchini.. I'm not sure which.. and I have no clue what to do with it lol..

I opted for an extra "hostess pack" and it was amazing!
on top of the usual.. I got fresh herbs.. rosemary, thyme and sage.. it smells sooooo good!
ten pounds of potatoes.. five pounds of red potatoes..
fresh green beans
pineapple (two)

but seriously..

this is worth a few bucks and waking up early on a Saturday!
I am now well on my way to making healthy, yummy meals for myself and my family!
here's to a great week and happy Thanksgiving!

only half a pound..
but down is down!

I jogged last night. had to get my training in for Thanksgiving..
so me n the little one.. ok. she's not so little anymore.
hit the streets..
she had her light up scooter and I had my runnin shoes.
I jogged to the rec center and back.
only pausing for a couple quick drink breaks and a few light stops..
I mapquested..
it was 3.75 miles
each way!
so.. 7.5 miles
in the 45 degree weather.
it was amazing!
my legs are tight n sore today.
but I rocked it!

I'm going with my little loss.
I'm expecting it will take a bit to adjust to my meds..
I am going to eat healthy and really watch my intake of what I NEED as opposed to what I WANT

Have a great week!

Oh.. I also found out my goal weight is actually a bit higher than I thought.
that doesn't seem so far away now!
17 pounds to be exact!

getting back on track


I went to the rec center last night to do something.. whatever my coughing butt would allow..
and allllll the frekin machines were FULL!
it was sooo busy last night..
maybe everyone is getting a start on the Holiday workouts to prevent the gains?

so I hit the track
it is 1/9th of a mile...
I jogged 9 times

took a drink.. checked my timer

I hit it again
mile 3 was 30.45!
I totally rocked it!!
had to stop for a cough attack and a drink

kept going
made it to mile 5.. that was 45 times around the track!! 50.15!!!

then I had to stop.
had to catch my breath.

but I felt goooood people! seriously good!
I just jogged 5 miles!
ok. not nonstop.
but I still did it!

I had a visit with my new dr yesterday too..
she is darling!
she has the cutest lil accent. I had to ask her where she was from.
Her family is from Ireland. She grew up in Zimbabwe. Talk about awesome!
she pretty much confirmed the PCOS diagnosis. She asked if I wanted to ask my ob about it.. I said I felt more comfortable with her.. since she has all my info from forever...
she started me on Metformin and Spironolactone.
also.. cut my blood pressure meds in half!

so.. lets see if this helps me lose the belly fat and get back on the right track.
cuz between me and you.. I am tired of shaving my facial hair like a man!
eek.. I said that out loud huh?
now you know my secret.

Have a great day!

Staying the same

in spite of being sick.. ugh!
I hardly got any workouts in last week..
it's really hard to run when you can't breathe..

but I stayed the same.
I'm ok with that

I made sure I packed lots of good food today.
carrots, greek yogurt, cottage cheese.. fruit... mmmmm

we had the chance to get some tickets to "party" with the Cullens! squeeee!!!
it was 6 a.m. and freeeeezing!
but we got the tickets!!

 my hubby loves me!
so this week.. I still can't breathe..
but I am going to do a 10k on Thanksgiving, so have to train for that!
I am going to focus on getting my eating back under control..
no more "well.. I ran three miles, so I can have that cookie"

day one

I have officially decided,, yet again.. that I am rebooting my ww's plan..
I have been mushy about needing to "start fresh"
I know.. but this time I am serious..

how many times have I said that?
too many to count.
this time it will stick.

I want so bad to be done by the end of the year.
done with losing weight
done with being jealous of all those who can lose and do it so easily
done with kicking myself for staying the same or even gaining every week
done with not loving myself enough to be a big girl and get my mind in it once and for all!

I'm taking my materials out tonight and actually reading them
and actually applying it
every day
all day
no more excuses and letting myself off the hook

I have 25ish pounds to go and goddess knows I am going to do it!

I will be tracking and planning and posting it all here

so get ready to be bombarded with me :)
