2014 is right around the corner and I PROMISE I am going to be a much better blogger.
Hopefully 2014 will be the year I (finally) get pregnant but until then I plan on losing weight and all the stuff everyone else says they want to do for the new year.
I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday. I promise to post more about that, too!
I’m not going to lie to you. I’m hungry. REALLY hungry. Maybe doing IP isn’t going to work so much for me. I knew it wasn’t going to be a diet I could stick to forever. But, I’m starving right now. It’s great that I’ve lost 7.2 pounds in 9 days, but seriously? I could eat my own hand right now.
I’m thinking I need some Weight Watchers back in my life. And the lack of exercise doesn’t help me much either.
A couple of months ago after we moved into the house, I canceled my gym membership. I was doing alright with my workouts at home and stuff, but I miss the gym. And sometimes a girl just doesn’t want to use the treadmill. The Arc Trainer would be nice. So, I’m thinking of rejoining. They are having a special right now. And maybe actually take another spin class.
The husband is leaving for New Orleans on Monday. I decided not to go with him this time around. With the house and all, I just didn’t want to go away for a week yet. My Mom is here (she’s downstairs in the in-law apartment) but she isn’t all that mobile these days and I worry about her, too. So, I’m going to stay home while he goes. He’ll be gone for almost 6 days. It’s a bummer, but it’s his job. I’ll miss him like crazy though. I had hoped to be pregnant, but I’m not dwelling on that right now.
I’m looking forward to the weekend. No big plans, just cleaning up the house and running a few errands. I’d like to get some pumpkins for the front porch to go with my Mums.
How was your Thursday?
So last week (or around that time) Brooke (of Brooke: Not On A Diet) posted that she was starting up a challenge about getting back to basics. Basics of tracking and weight loss and all that. She had a facebook group and so I joined.
And for the first time in probably FOREVER I tracked everything I ate. I counted all my points and didn’t go over once. I worked out 3 times and didn’t even cheat. That alone was a big deal for me. I had hoped to lose a decent amount, but it was 0.8 pounds. Of course at first I got mad. I was really angry.
But I thought about it and realized it didn’t really matter. The fact was that I didn’t even WANT to cheat. I was sick and tired of eating junk food. I was sick and tired of, in fact, feeling sick and tired. So it was 0.8 pounds. Great. That’s a start. I’m going to continue and move on and maybe next week it will be a bigger loss.
Friday nights and Sunday nights have been really tough for me. But I made it through them. Last night I didn’t even WANT to eat pizza or ice cream. I actually got Arctic Zero at Whole Foods and that was amazing. No, it wasn’t Ben and Jerry’s but I didn’t need that. I would rather have something that is 150 calories over something that is 1200 calories. And I didn’t have to worry about it the next day.
Plus? I think TOM is around the corner. She’s always a bitch.
Wednesday I went and did this:
I would like to thank Bradley for helping. He was so interested in what I was doing.
So yes, I went and signed back up for Weight Watchers. I’ve been struggling so very hard lately. I can’t even begin to tell you WHY I have been. It scares me. I told myself I would NEVER let my weight get so out of control and I did.
I’m trying. That is all I really CAN do at this point. I sometimes feel like such a fraud because I lost all that weight and started to gain it back again. But, I know I’m human and I’m not perfect and it happens. Right?
Saturday I was heading to the gym and after I was going to go to work for a little overtime and the trunk of my car smacked me in the head.
It left a nice little egg on my head. Hurt pretty bad, too.
Oh and some good news. Finally approved for a mortgage!! Now the house hunting will really begin.
