day 218. Reflecting and learning and insights

I can't remember if I mentioned that I am reading the book 10 lessons learned from a former fat girl. I really like it so far. I've only read the first chapter, but part of it asks you to reflect on your earliest memories, God, past behaviors, and other things. It really was good and the purpose is to help you get to figure out why we are overweight. I got a journal, wrote my thoughts and have had some insights, and also wrote some plans for improving my life in many areas. I really like that, and feel this is the right book for me at the right time!

day 219. Really blew it

WOW, did I waste my day and eat WAYYYYYY too much. I found myself nervous for some unknown bizarre reason. I really don't have a good reason for it, no idea why. BUT wow did I eat. What was weird though... was the more that I ate, the hungrier I got, I couldn't "fill up". Clearly I wasn't really hungry. Some other kind of hunger going on... I guess just like the books say, that we are feeding something else, some other problem, not our bodies. so now I feel icky, yucky, stuffed, weirdly unsatisfied and still anxious. UGHHHH, can I start this day over?

day 220. Biggest Loser info

DH's work is doing a biggest loser competion. I won it the very first year they did it and then didn't do anything the next 2 years. (signed up but didn't make it work).

This year you have to do it in teams of 2, so my poor DH got ropped into doing it with me!

got the information today and my competitive trait is up and running. Need to win!

so, now of course I am wrestling with how much to exercise now, the points start on Monday. I am NOT going to blow it and eat all this week. But boy is it hard to exercise knowing that the pounds lost now don't count toward the competion.

I WOULD LOVE to be on the actual biggest loser. I would love the competition of it. I would hate the fact of having to vote people out though. That doesn't sound like fun at all.

day 221-232 time just flies by!

I've actually been doing pretty good. I know it's been a while and I have to admit I feel bad about that. I have made some GREAT choices! First off, we started the Biggest loser competition through DH's work. He's lost 3 pounds and I've lost 5#!!!! He has been working so hard that it is motivating me. I am so proud of us. We've exercised every day. We are both logging our food journals and supporting each other. it has been AWESOME!!!! I am going to make a more concerted effort to also log here daily, I miss it and miss all of you!

day 233. Who knew the treadmill and I would become friends?

I had a tendency to HATE the treadmill! I much prefer walking outside. however winter here isn't fun, so the treadmill might become my new friend. Went to the gym with DH tonight. I wanted to shake up the routine a bit so I don't do the same thing every time, today I spent 1 hour on the treadmill! I did inclines, varied my speed and sweated ALOT! Felt pretty good. I am sure my legs will be tired tomorrow, but I feel like I really got a good work out in. Who knew the treadmill and I would become friends?

day 234. great workout

WOW, I am beat! However I am happy too, I worked out 1 hour on the eliptical and then did some weights and also had a strenght test done for the BL competition. I did OK on the push ups and curl ups. We also had to lift 50% of our body weight in a lat pull down and leg extension. I couldn't even move those last 2. there was no way considering how much I weigh right now. Maybe I'll be better in 12 weeks. We also have a challenge of no soda for 1 week. That is surprisingly really hard for me. But I'll do it!

day 235. Hmmm, would you do it?

My trainer just sent an email to me about an opportunity to try out for a reality weight loss show. Would you do it? I wish I had the courage to do it, I wonder... What is special about me? Why would they pick me. then I wonder... OMG what if they do pick me... do I want all my info out there??? The SCALE, the personal info out there, Do I really want that? It is a 1 in a million chance that I would be selected... And I don't know if I can even get off of work.

So.... would you?

day 237. Comfort foods... kept in my calorie budget!!!!

It's been very stressful in my life with a variety of things going on, and tonight I came home from work exhausted. I just wanted some "comfort foods". and the good news... is that I did, but was smart about it and kept in my calorie budget!!!

Yesterday we went shopping and bought bagels for the kids, they smelled so good, and I love me some carbs! So today I opted to have the bagel for dinner with NO cream cheese! left over fruit I had cut up for lunch and some potato chips. I know it is not a "stellar meal" with lots of veggies, protein, dairy, etc. But I am very proud that I made it work. Instead of eating a bagel yesterday mindlesly, I fit it into a meal. Instead of destressing and hitting McDonalds, I came home instead.

I feel very happy with these changes!
