Desiree's There and Back Again Journal - Comments welcome!

** Post 46 has an updated entry and my I'm baaaaaack to WISH Journaling**

Ok so I find myself here yet again. And each time I come back, I swear the number that I want to get to keeps slipping further and further back. Of course, I have no one to blame but myself (well myself and Cold Stone Creamery too).

Here's the brutal truth. I am almost 32 years old and I weigh 207 as of this morning. Not my all time highest weight but only 4 pounds from it. Which in itself still is pretty darn bad. My plan is to get to the gym at least 5 times per week, watch what I eat and cut back on fatty foods and to cut out the sodas all together. This has worked pretty well for me before. I may try to implement something not unlike Weight Watchers this go around also.

Oh and of course, to Journal again and join as many challenges (AND FINISH THEM!) to set me on the right path.

Now to the game plan for today. I am going to the Y after work for the first time in at least 4 months. I had 1/2 of a pop tart for breakfast and will eat a Progresso Heathly Veggie soup for lunch. Tonight I'm hoping to make a tuna salad or casserole so I can have leftovers.

Here I go.....again!

Thanks Tracy! I hope you are doing well!

Well I did fairly good until I got to the gym. All the Elliptical machines were taken so I had to go walk outside. I only managed one lap due to the intense heat (95º) and the fact that my lower back and my calves started hurting. Boy I tell you what, when you slack up it's so easy to fall out of shape. Uggh.

And to make matters worse, I didn't follow through with my supper plan. Instead I ate 4 small slices of pizza with ice cream for dessert. Now somewhere in my brain I managed to justify it by saying that I needed to get rid of it so it won't tempt me.

Today is off to a better start though. I ate one packet of Oatmeal and am planning a Lean Cuisine for lunch. Will try to decide later as to what to eat for dinner tonight. Maybe I'll try the Tuna casserole that I didn't get to yesterday.

Nothing gets you back on the dieting caravan faster than cleaning out your closets and dressers! Man, I have so many items of clothes that I can't wear!! ARGH!

I did pretty good this weekend. Only managed to exercise once though, but it was a doozy. A little over one full hour of cardio and my legs were jello. I'm still feeling it a bit today, but it's not as bad. I'm planning to hit the gym tonight after work and do the full workout which consists of 35 min. of Cardio and my weight training.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I feel you there, except I never made it to an hour. Something like 6 mins on the couch to 5k thing. Good job on doing a full hour! I wish I had your stamina.

Oh trust me.... I felt it a couple days after though! Phew! Well, my gym-goings haven't been the best this week. But I hope to remedy that starting today. I'm down a full 2 pounds in two weeks time. I guess I should be happy that it's a loss!

Well just wanted to check in briefly. I hope to write more once I finish getting dressed and head to work. I hope you all are doing well. Thanks for the well wishes everyone!

Can I sneak back in and have no one notice me?

Well I bought an Elliptical machine yesterday hoping that will help me get and stay motivated. I think my biggest problem right now is time. I have somehow got to find a way to make the time and make it a priority. So back on the wagon again as of today.

My game plan for today:
B- 1 package of Oatmeal
L- Spaghetti
S- Wheat thins
D- Grilled Chicken or Pork with veggies

At least 80 oz of water and I would like to do at least 40 minutes on the Elliptical.

Oh yea... I got on the scale this morning and said Hello to my all time high weight again. Yep, the one that I vowed to never see again! 211. God I hate that number.

Ok, off to go see if I can join in some challenges now. Those always keep me motivated.

Sneak right on in, no one will notice!

You made a major step by purchasing an Elliptical Machine. May I ask how much you paid for it? I am looking into getting one myself, but I am still on the fence with it - so let me know how it goes, could you?

Sounds like you have a great day planned as far as the menu is concerned. Remember making time is the hardest part about any fitness plan; however, the results will be worth it in the long run.

Have a great day.

No, I don't mind at all! I bought a cheap one from Wal-mart. Before I plunk down alot of money, I wanted to make sure I would use this one. And then later on, I"ll make a decision to upgrade. The one I got was a Weslo 610 and I paid about $150.00 for it. It was kind of a pain to put together, but thankfully, that's what husbands are for!

I tried it for a few minutes last night and it is relatively quiet. So far so good! I will give it a good workout when I get home though. I guess the real test will be then!

Thanks for the well wishes and the support!

Me vs. Devil machine

Ok so the Elliptical at the house is alot harder to do than the Elliptical at the gym! I can usually do 30 minutes semi-easily at the Y. I barely made 10 minutes total yesterday! And that was breaking it down into 2 minutes at a time and having the feeling go out of my legs! I swear I think I put the resistance on the easiest level! Ack! Ok well, at least I know I need to seriously work on that although my legs feel a bit wobbley this morning.

Game plan today:
100 oz of water
I will try to figure a way to get at least 30 minutes total on the Elliptical (aka Devil machine)
B- 2 Hard Boiled Eggs
L- Sausage link with a side of carrots and small serving of pasta
D- Not sure yet... It may be Chicken, Rice and Cheese casserole so we can eat the leftovers.

Hey Des,

I haven't been on here much lately, but I looked to see if you were still around and I am glad to see you are!

Later,

Dax
