Seriously?  One of my favorite Bloggers had a lot to say about it, and I LOVE her for it:

She said it better than I could.

Ugh.

And seriously, I love the show Mike & Molly.  It’s funny, cute, and seems more real than any other sitcom on TV.

Take that, Marie Claire.

A fresh start (again)

Filed under: Uncategorized — curliegirlie @ 1:18 pm

so, I’ve been pretty unfocused lately.  I think a lot of it stems from the fact that I haven’t had a day off in a long time…I think October 10th was my last one. Stress, headaches, work, all of these things have given me a reason not to focus on myself, and basically give up on my plan. 

Well, I’m putting  a stop to it.  I’m giving myself a giant kick in the ass, which is exactly what I need right now.  I did a lot of social things last week, and while I do not regret ANY of it, it did put things into perspective for me.  Jules had her birthday party on friday (happy belated!)  and Lisa and I stopped by for a little bit.  I was really really proud of the way I handled myself. I had 3/4 of a beer, and that’s it.  No sangria, no cupcakes, no candy corn, no apples and caramel.   All of it looked delicious and awesome, but I successfully avoided it. 

I’ve discovered that this journey is about little milestones.  Getting through my day resisting big temptations, and finding time to ENJOY exercise.  That’s right, enjoy it.  Not just do it because I have to, but to want to do it.  This is key for me.  If I am enjoying myself during an activity, I am more likeyl to repreat that activity!  So, I did some wii Fit activities last night and again this morning.  My favorite thing is “rhythm boxing” in the aerobics section. 

So, I’m feeling kinda of amped right now.  I am feeling a little bit more confident about my progress, and sticking with my goals.  The biggest hurdle/temptation for me has been lunchtime.  At work, I just NEED to escape during my break, and there are a lot of fast food places and restaurants around here.  As long as I have  a specific task in mind (like yesterday, I went to target to buy the Sugarland CD) I can be ok with it.

That’s it for now, have  a great week!

That’s my total loss so far.  Yay!

I bought new pants at target on tuesday, because I ws tired of hiking them up all day.  They fit really well (for now), which is totally exciting!

Some cool things I’ve noticed:

  • I can wear some of my old jeans, from YEARS ago, that I couldn’t bear to toss out
  • I can wear some shirts that I hung onto, after they stopped fitting.
  • my shoes all feel a little loose
  • I can walk a lot longer without feeling tired

The past few weeks have been a little rough on my diet plan.  I’ve “cheated” a lot, which has slowed down my progress.  I found the program so easy in the beginning, to stick with, but as time goes on and on, I am finding that temptation is kicking my ass.  and that is not cool.  I need to re-up my motivation and commitment, so that I am not wasting a bunch of time and money!  Any suggestions on that? 

Work is stressful as always, we are just SO busy.  a lot of days I don’t even take my break for lunch!  we are between busy seasons right now, but it sure doesn’t feel like it.  I can only imagine what november/december will bring.  Yaaaaaaaay Stress!

That’s it for now, ciao!
