This Weeks Happenings Vol. 1

Friday, September 28, 2012 0 comments
This week was a little crazy in the middle. Monday was a relaxing day at home cleaning up a little. Tuesday was about the same as Monday. Wednesday was crazy. I spent most of the day trying to get ready to go to Jacksonville for the night. We had to go for Ryker to have another sleep study done.

The Beginning

This is the beginning of a journey that I have started probably a million times. I am going to stick to this journey this time. I am on a weight loss journey. I have been working on losing some extra weight that I have been carrying since my adult life. I was eating a keto diet but I found that I miss my fruits too much, so I am reading Bob Harper's The Skinny Rules, to try and find a balance to get my health back on track for life. I am not doing a diet. I am changing my lifestyle, creating new habits and increasing my daily activity. This is a journey I want to share with you and I hope you will encourage me and find some motivation in yourself to start getting healthy, unless you are already healthy of course.


Weigh In-Sept. 16

Monday, September 17, 2012 0 comments
Last Week's Weight: 198 lbs
This Week: 197.5 lbs

Weight lost: .5 lbs

Half a pound in two weeks is not great, but I didn't gain any weight. I was struggling this week to stick with my Atkins lifestyle. I found that I truly miss eating fruit, oatmeal, and rice. I want to be able to eat the foods that I enjoy and lose weight at the same time. I have purchased Bob Harper's The Skinny Rules book to help me out a little. I am slowly working to get all of my eating habits turned around. I will be cleaning out my fridge and freezer pretty soon so that I can have all the good snacks that I need to help me lose the weight.

At this weigh in my friend Nate came by to help with some at home strength training tips. At first he answered some questions concerning food but then we got down to the fun stuff. He had us warm-up and really got our blood flowing. He went through a bunch of different exercises slowly and carefully to show us exactly how to do it. He also made sure we were doing it all correctly too. He gave us some tips to add some extra weight training while we work on our cardio too. It was great to have someone come to explain these things to us. I hope we can get him to come again and maybe do a yoga session with us.

You need to get back to eating a low carb diet. Stop worrying about what your husband will think of what you are shoveling in your mouth. Let his mouth drop when you get skinny and wear sexy clothes. Forget about what your family thinks of how you order, who cares what they think. You need to do this for you. Your son can eat the same stuff as you too, just add some of his yogurt snacks and pudding. You started this weight loss journey with so much fire under your arse. 
You need to get the fire back, burn that flame so hard. Show all those bitches how it is done.

Today was a good day. You didn’t do good eating but you did get outside and get some physical activity in. You had a lot of fun seeing your old friend and watching her yell at her cheerleaders. You even ran after your son who thoroughly enjoyed himself out on the field with all them girls.  You should do that more often. Possibly get your mother-in-law to watch the kiddo while you go to the track and train with the cheerleaders. Or you could just run circles around them girls while they cheer, condition, and stunt. Think about it. You had a lot of fun today, it is going to help you get closer to the end goal of a healthy life.

You are completely deviating from your diet plan right now. You need to get back on it. You need to lose the weight so that you can be happy and healthy. Don’t you want your friends to be in shock when they see you in 4 years at your 10 year reunion? YES? Then get back to your low carb diet. Get back to eating the way you know works best for your body.  Take out everything in the house that is not for your diet. Put away the things your husband and child cannot live without. Make sure you have a good selection of snacks and veggies. Make sure you get veggies. You know you feel like such a drag when you eat only protein. Come on. You got this.

I want you to know that you are struggling to get back onto keto right now. Things are just hard for you to decide to eat keto. I am going to work hard to prove it to you that I can do this. I can lose the weight and be happy with my body. My arms are improving already from the LiveFit workouts that you started last week.
