The struggle is still real...

I am still struggling on the weight loss, but I am on the right path!

I found some great new tennis shoes by Brooks and found a wonderful insert as well to help with my plantar fasciitis. I wore them for the 2 hours they recommend yesterday and my foot did not HURT at all. It was wonderful. I can't wait to be able to walk more in them and get a moving to help with the weight loss.

I will not give up... it is just not falling off like I have had it do in the past with other diets!!! Of course they weren't the best of diets then to do....

Just chugging along...

I decided at the beginning of the month that on the 20th I would start slim fast. It is a shake in the morning and one for lunch and a decent dinner. You can have 2 snacks in between around 100 calories. Week one has gone and observations from it: I AM STARVING after the shake. I have adjusted it a little. I will do the shake in the morning and then an hour later I will have a waffle by itself and then lunch and a snack shortly after. I have 24 days of slim fast on hand and it will not go to waste. I will keep it going and adjust as I see the need and hopefully things start feeling better!

Its one day at a time and I won't give up and I will keep going, but something has to give. I am not expecting it to be easy at all, I just need it to be manageable while I go...

I have been having a really hard time getting motivated to get back into the rhythm of some program. I have tried weight watchers and I am just not sticking with it. I have decided that for the ease of things I am going to try slim fast. I tried it once before but I stopped it after a few days. I am going to do the drinks/shakes in the morning and for lunch and then have a good meal in the evening trying to stay under 500 calories.

I am also going to add walking or bike riding to my work out routines starting on the 20th. My daughter will be home and we can do that once we get home...

It is the hardest thing I have ever done, but I need to lose weight for so many reasons health wise and it can help with so many issues I am having.

I am going to give it a good month or so to see if it will be the program I need to stick with and then go from there. Sometime has to give here.

Wish me luck!

I am slacking on this lately...

I have gained 10 lbs back of the 21 that I have lost so I am in a struggle of getting my mind back into the weight loss journey. I will get there... just a lot going on with being a coordinator of a group that I am in called MOPS. That ends for me June 9th. After that I feel like the craziness will pass and I can focus more on me and getting where I need to be.

I did however take a 6.16 mile bike ride on Sunday. It was fun. It did make my husband and I realize that we need new bikes for the kids. They have both out grown their bikes that we got last year. How crazy is that. I mean I get it, but wow.

So, right now I am just in crazy mode of being overwhelmed... bare with me... the workouts will be shortly and the process will also continue to go down in lbs.

Weigh in

Today I did not weigh in. My mom is here on vacation and we have gone out to eat more than normal.  I will get back on track starting Tuesday.

I have plans to get more exercise and get moving more. It will just take time to get in a routine.

How are you doing?

Stuck in a RUT!

Well it has happened.

I am officially stuck in a RUT! I know I am stuck there and I know I need to get out and get over whatever is going on. It is surely hard when you get stuck! 

My mom is coming on Sunday and she will be here until the 14th. I am off for 6 days and I am so looking forward to these days off with her. I don't know what we will do. We might just sit at home and relax and do NOTHING! Which I am excited about as well... But, I know that I need to get my butt up and get it moving! The weight loss is not going to fall off by itself... it needs my help to get it gone! I am going to enjoy these days with my momma and then when she leaves I know I need to get moving. 

My plan is to do 3 days cardio during the week and the other 2 days work out my arms/legs/abs/stomach with weights/bands/crunches, etc. I am going to print up as much material as I need to get workouts put together for me and then will hit it hard. I know that I will be exhausted the first few weeks, but I also know I can DO this thing called weight loss and I am going to reach my goals~~~

How are you all doing with your journey? Whether it be weight loss, working out, just life in general?

Weigh day...

Today I did not weigh in. I went to dinner last night and I know that I had more than I normally eat... even though I chose a meal that was 5 points lower than the original dinner I was going to eat... I still had a few extra fries... So, I am going to wait until Sunday to weigh in.

... will check in then!
