Well Gang

Well I know it has been a while since i Have bogged or even updated my weight.
The reasoning for this is because I think I have been lied to.  I have always used my wii so it can keep exact track of my weight loss and it will tell me if I have lost or gained all the way to the point.  Well I go to get on it and it said I lost over 30 pounds in a week.  I did not believe it of course then I got back on and it said I gained 70 pounds in a week.  Finally a third time and it said I had lost like 50 pounds.  So my wii is not working the greatest so I have had nothing to weigh myself with. To be honest I am not even sure if the starting weight was correct or the weekly rates were correct. I know that the one weight I was out of town and used someone else's  machine was most likely accurate but not everything else.

Then lets move over to the exercising. I have failed.  R u ready for my (excuse)  it has been well into the high 100s in temperature.  I have no central A/C so I only have window units that are ancient so they suck through a lot of electricity and do not blow very well. (ha ha)  Once they get turned off my house goes almost immediately to outside temp.  That's not a good thing and then it will take all day to get back to livable.  In my living room I have my wii and my exercise stuff hooked to that and when I play the wii/xbox anything while running the A/C it pops a breaker.  Then I must start all over like I Have not completed the tasks at all.  So, I have not been working out for two weeks now. I am horrible and feel like crap.  I noticed that I do not have as much energy as I used to I no longer crave working out.  I would really hate to get my wii working properly now to see that i have probably gained everything back plus some.

Eating I am still doing good there.  I no longer stick to a specific amount of calories however I DO make sure the stuff I eat is not loaded with calories and sodium.,  I am still eating more turkey rather than beef, So, I have not completely failed on the eating just the exercising.  Which is just as bad.

So, hopefully here soon I can get back on track and get this damn heat out of here so I can get back on my wii.

Well hugs to all

Another Weigh In

Well gang tonight's going to be really short because I am exhausted.  I weighed in this morning and I think my scale thing is not liking me at all.  I first got on and it said I gained like ten pounds.  I waited a few minutes and then it said the current weight.  I at first got real confused.  Remember last week I weighed in at my mothers house on her Wii.  It said I had lost 4 pounds.  I did not get a chance to weigh in on my personal Wii.  SO this week when I weighed in it said I lost 4.2 pounds.  I thought it meant I gained .2 pounds. I was so upset and hating myself. I tried to think it was because of lovely mother nature ya no but then I said that it had to be because of this past weekend and me not giving the exercising a 100 percent like I have been.  Then after speaking with my husband telling him about how and what it said and how I felt he said umm honey you did not gain you actually lost the .2 pounds so that made ma a little happier.

My workout this weekend was a different kind of one.  We went to Bush Gardens on Saturday night I did the satirs of death and we speed walked throughout the park.  Sunday we went to Water Country during the day and Bush Gardens again at night and did a lot of speed walking again.  SO that was pretty much my type of workout this weekend. 

I start back to work on Monday doing summer school.  So I will be able to get more movement and then workout when I get home so I should be back on track again.  Until Summer school is out and I go back to my mothers house again..LOL  My kids love going there because they get all the junk food possible.  I hate going there because she orders take out and has a lot of junk food there...LOL

Well I am off to shower and sleep!!

Night everyone

Wednesday July 7, 2010

Hey gang sorry its been so long.  Summer time is a never ending stress ball. 

I did weigh in on Saturday July 3, 2010 (from my mothers) and it said I had lost 4 pounds.  So that now makes a total of 22 pounds I have lost in 4 weeks.  That is great.  I have noticed a change in my stomach and thighs but I would really like to see a change in my hips and face.  I guess that will come with time. 

I think I did really well for the holiday eating.  Then traveling I think I did pretty good there for eating.  I know on the way to my mother's I had a horrible breakfast I ate a 4 inch scrambled egg with steak sub.  It had onions, peppers and pepper on it.  Then for lunch I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich and took off the bread and only ate the chicken.  Dinner now that was horrible I ate 1 piece of Pizza Hut pizza.  So that traveling day seemed well for me.  Then came the next day no breakfast lunch was a left over pizza and dinner was a hot dog (no bun) and some mac and cheese.  Finally July 4th.  I again had no breakfast except a whey protein drink, lunch (don't think I had any).  I had one beer, one homemade strawberry daiquiri then dinner was 3 fired chicken wings, pasta salad, some pepperoni dip with a quarter slice of some kinda bread, and a piece of chicken breast.  Then at about 11/midnight I ate 4 more chicken wings so that was not the greatest but it was still good since there was SO much unhealthy stuff there.  My mother made some really thick chocolate fudge brownies with marshmallow and nut toppings I did have a small piece of that and my kids were trying to force some pumpkin no bake oatmeal cookies but I had one cookie in three settings so that was wonderful!!

I am very proud of my weight loss now I just am concerned on when the other shoe is going to drop and I am going to gain it all back with one craving. 

During the weekend I was gone I still got in some workouts.  I did my Go Active 2 times and I played Volleyball in the pool.  Then there was the constant up and down a hilly yard. 

I think that is it for now.  I will try to start blogging at least every other day BUT if I do not I will always put my weight in on Sundays!

Have a great week!

Sunday June 27, 2010

Well I weighed in today as well as took my measurements.  I had to do my weigh in not once but twice to make sure it was correct.  It said  I lost 10.6 pounds.  Yup you read it right 10.6 pounds in 6 days. I was so excited I thought  I was still dreaming. Then my measurements were okay my arms are bigger.  Getting a little chicken wing going on so that is going to make me crazy.  I feel bad because I was so excited when I noticed it that I told my friends Crazy and Jen.  Which made my girl Jen get a little discouraged.  I wish that I did not lose that much so she would not feel bad.  I know that we both struggle with this but apparently her meds are not kicking in for her yet.  So I want all to wish her a good luck and give her a huge hug.  I am really sorry hun but you are doing great as well.  Just think of how much extra running you are making Crazy do.  That in itself is satisfaction make that man 

But today was an abnormal day.  Got up did the normal breakfast thing with straightening up the house a little.  Then took my grandmother, sister, and my two girls all out to lunch at Applebees.  I think I did a good job ordering there too. We stayed gone from 140 until after 7pm.  Then came home and made the boys something to eat and the girls something light.  Then all of a sudden my computer game needed my full attention.  UGH the stress of gaming...

My food intake today was...
a piece of toast with peanut butter on it

Lunch was
Half of an AppleBees 550calorie Spicy Shrimp Lunch and a salad with a salad no croutons or onions and Italian dressing I dipped not poured on the salad (use less that way)

Dinner was
The other half of my lunch.

So all together I ate approx. 1000 calories today..

I did not work out cause it was supposed to be a rest day and my men were on the damn XBOX most the day.  (Cannot do Wii workout at the same time)  Thats okay  I will get it made up tomorrow!!!

Well good luck to all. 

Again = -10.6 for 6 days wooo hooo!!!

Saturday June 27, 2010


Well today started off as a same ole same old day.  But some how I got a burr up my rear and did three workouts today and guess what Crazy and Jen I ATE food today.  There really was not much going on just straightening things up exercising and KoC. 
We did watch Zombieland with the kids they really enjoyed that.  I really like sitting up in a dark living room with my family laying out everywhere watching a scary movie.  My youngest daughter is a real big Wuss so its fun teasing her.  As a matter of fact this movie was not really scary but she thought it was a little and she had to go pee after the movie was over and remember I said DARK she wanted her big sister to take her to the potty but she was scared and I said I had to go they both came running after me and I quickly shut the door which made it dark and the little one squealed it was funny cause all you hear is foot steps running to the kitchen. She was laughing cause mommy scared her. (9years old people not really little)

Well it is after midnight and I need to get to laying down I have a huge day tomorrow.  ITS WEIGH IN DAY!!

Well food intake for the day was.....


Yogurt and a 1/2 bowl of cereal

was a Michalean thingy that was chicken broccoli alfredo do hicky.

was left overs from Thursday The mexican casserole.

was some popcorn with the movie(home popped)

So lets see how much that eating like a pig affects my weigh in tomorrow.

Well NIGHT to all!!

Friday June 25, 2010

Well gang today was an okay day.  EXTREMELY hot but an okay day.  I did some normal chores around the house yipee for me..LOL Then I planned dinner a yummy lasagna.  I did an extra hard workout today as well.  I did my normal thirty minutes of the Go Active and then I did another 30 minutes of random exercises on the go active with my sister.  My arms feel like jello from all the dancing moves, hitting a baseball and shooting basketball.  Ugh what one will do for family.  But that was okay cause I burned over 300 calories. I have found that I am getting better in the running part of the exercises.  They have me run 2.67 laps at the beginning and at the end of my workouts.  So I get practice in running just for you crazy.

Food Intake today:

a small tomato sandwich

a cup of salad and 1 tbs of dressing


Lasgna (half of what I was given) and another small salad.

I am still scared cause on Sunday I weigh in again and this is the third week so its scaryyyyyyy.  I will also try to measure my body as well to see where I have lost some inches or hopefully feet at.

Well good night to all...

Thursday June 24, 2010

Hey gang today was a semi normal day.  I woke up had my coffee as breakfast. Played a little on my computer and then went out and did some more shopping.  Yesterday was grocery today was junk shopping and paying bills.  I went to get cigarettes, Walmart and got another resistance band and one of those big blue balls.(we all know how much I like, and a set of 2 pound hand help weights.  I will hope this helps me some with my workouts and toning.  After that we went to a thrift store and got some playtime summer clothes for the kids and then off to hair cuts for my youngest son.  His hair was REALLY long and bugging me so its all gone now yeah.  Finally, we went to the pet store and got some crickets for the bearded dragon and turtle as well as some more fish for the turtle. 
I made something new for dinner tonight it was a Mexican Casserole.  It was really good.  This was the first time I used ground turkey instead of beef.  Could not really tell the difference on the meat taste.  All my family liked it but my picky eater Kimberly.  It took her an hour to eat one scoop cause it had beans in it.OMG drama queen...LOL

Well lets see food intake today:
a 90 calorie bar thingy
Mexican Casserole and a Salad with 3tbs Ranch

My workout today made me feel really good
I did a 30 minute Yoga session b4 I left to go shopping
Then once I got home b4 dinner I did my big Wii helper it was another 33 minutes of hot sweaty painful exercise.

All in all I think today was a good day.  I need to eat a little more throughout the day but I did better with the yogurt and snack bar thing.

We will see what tomorrow brings!!
