Better Day

Today has been a really good day. As soon as I got up this morning I went jogging. I jogged around four times. The first time I made it around almost all the way, the other 3 I went around half way and walked half way. Then I hit up Costco with my mom and then I was supposed to go visit my best friend. But I got a call for the Witch-In-law Jonathon has bronchitis and was at the hospital, so she need a babysitter for Manning. So Battery and I ended up going to pick him up and watched for a couple hours it was a lot of fun. We took for a long walk almost an hour through the trails by our house. He seemed to really enjoy it, I don't think he he has ever been taken anywhere like that. Then we got home and my dad took over babysitting so we could make the movie since already bought tickets. Sex and The City was awesome I really enjoyed it, I laughed, I credit, it was great. Battery only enjoyed it for the first hour I think and then got restless, but it was so sweet of him to go with me. We just grabbed some pizza for dinner and are relaxing right now. But boy am I wipped out my legs are killing me, so I think it will be an early night for me but all in all a great day.

On the mend

I am feeling a lot better today. I had a nice quiet evening at home last night with DH and I really needed. I went over to see my Grandma last night too and she is looking really good. I think the pills have really helped her, it also made me feel a better too. As for my sister in law I have no wish to see her right now so I am just steering clear of her. I skipped weigh in this morning and I know I shouldn't but right now I just need to concentrate on getting myself feeling better right now. I am still eating healthy and going to try and excerise as much as possible. But I am just taking this break over the weekend not worrying about tracking or weight loss. I think I really need it at this point. My plan for this weekend is just to spend time with Battery and he is taking me to see Sex and The City movie tomorrow. I am really looking forward to it.

Not to hot

I had a bit of a melt down in the car this morning and started crying when I was dropping Battery off at work. I have been working so hard to keep it together but I am so worried about my grandma. Also my dad has a heart condition so I am worried about him too. Eating and excerise wise has been pretty bad this week too. I know I need to get back into it because it will help me because punishing my body isn't going to make any better. My sister in law is the C word, I never use that word but for her its true. Last night my parents were out with them and my mom said to her and my brother did you hear about your grandma, that only 20% of her lungs are left. Well apparntley my sister in law looked like she just won the lottery. I am sure she would be happy if my grandma died because she wants to get her hands on her money. She is really sick and twisted. I am going to end there before I get upset again since I am at work. Everyone have a great day.

Last night didn't go as planned, I had a crappy day at work and then when we got home Battery and I got into an argument. So I ended up skipping out on my run, instead I just went for a walk around the block a couple times, so I did get moving just not as much as planned. Eating wise I had a few snacks after dinner, not great but I stayed within my points plus I had 5 flex points left over. Tonight Battery has a dentist appointment so I am going to drop him off, go for a run and then come back and pick him up.
We have been doing a lot of planning for our Trip to Hawaii, Battery has his heart set on doing the Road to Hana. I am not really too crazy about it since the road is supposed to be really bad with step drop offs, but since its the one thing he really wants to do we are going to do it. Since I am the driver I told him we are going to leave early and just take it slow. We will probably it within the first couple days of being there, since it will be easier to get up since our bodies will still be on Vancouver time. Other than that I want to go snorkeling for sure and go to a Luau, maybe go on a dinner cruise we will see.

Catch Up

I know I haven't updated my blog lately but there has been some family stuff going on. My grandma was sent to see a lung specialist yesterday as she hasn't been doing too good. Anyways after the test were run it was determined that she only has 20% lung capactiy left. I found out when I was work at yesterday and I was really upset. When I got home I found out that she doesn't need to go on Oxgen which is really good, but will need to take 6 differnt pills a day to help the problem. My grandma is turning 94 this year and I know I should be really grateful she is still alive but I would also like to keep her around for a few more years. I am feeling a bit better today but still a bit upset about it.

Weight watchers wise I am still plugging away, Battery and I went jogging on Sunday I was able to make it 3/4ths the way around the track this time. So I was really happy with that. Eating wise I am doing my best eating my points, drinking lots of water trying for 4 liters a day now. I have really gotten into green tea its actually pretty good. Last night I did some weights, crunches, squats and lunges. I stepped on the scale this morning I was up another pound. Its like when the weight goes up on the scale so does my image of myself. I feel like a fat pig today. Battery has suggested I only weigh myself once a week I am sure he is right. So I am not going to step on the scale again until Friday. If I go up anymore than I am not really sure what is next.

Feeling Good

Thanks for listening to my whining this week. I am feeling really good right now. I am not worrying about the number on the scale. I am working on excerisng and eating healthy and seeing how my clothes fit. I am sure it will all even out soon. Today is Tanya day it was supposed to be last saturday but it got cancelled because of the car. Anyways we are going to the Zoo and then out for Thai food for dinner. I can't wait! I hope everyone has a great day!

Well I finally got my car back, it cost $500. Wasn't too happy about it but at least I have my car back. I have been doing weights, crunches, squats & lunges all week. I stepped on the scale this morning and I am up 2lbs. I am so frustrated right now, I was planning on being back at 170 by the end of the month but I guess that isn't going to happen. I think it might be from the weight lifiting but still I am really not happy about it. It likes I am never going to lose this weight. Its all because I quit smoking, even though I am smoking a couple a day again.
I am looking into booking our trip to Maui. It looks like you can't smoke really anywhere in Maui, so I guess I will have no choice but to quit smoking when we are there. I have looked and can't find any hotels with even smoking areas. But maybe it will be a good way to get my bum in gear and quit once and for all.

I know I haven't posted in a few days but I haven't been feeling that great emotionally lately. Its seems like everything I touch I break, I came into work yesterday and my computer was broken too. Today I can't log into our system, I am starting to take it all personally. Eating wise wasn't great over the weekend, we went out drinking Saturday night at the pub I went over my flex points by 9. I wasn't too happy about it but at least I tracked it. Excerise wise also not great, I skipped my run on sunday because I was way too hungover to go. Monday and yesterday I just did some weights, squats, lunges and crunches. Today I find out about my car and how much its going to cost. It will either be 350 for the starter or up to $1500 for the starter and the fly wheel. I am keeping my fingers crosee that its only the starter. It is I will be able to book our trip to Hawaii today, if not there goes any vacation at all this year. I am just so much on edge right now and I am feeling so stressed out. I am really hoping it turns out well.

Not turning out as I planned

I came out of work yesterday and my car wouldn't start. I had a bit of a meltdown at work with tears, I am pretty embrassed about it. Anyways I called BCAA they showed up about an hour and half later. They were able to getop the car going, its the starter. Anyways I took it to Canadian Tire and they were going to charge me $600 to change the starter. I was like holy crap, then I talked to my sister in law and she told me to bring to her shop. They can change it on Tuesday and said I could use her car until then. But then when I was there she was trying to sell me a new car. But I don't want a new car, I worked so hard to pay for my card and its finally paid off. So I think we are just going to wait a bit and see what happens.

Weigh In

I stepped on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh in and my weight was the same. I have excerise more this week so I think that might be it. I really wish I had taken my measurments before to see if I had lost inches. My jeans are feeling really baggy in the waist so that might be it. I am just going to keep eating well and excerising and hopefully I will see a loss this week. Battery is talking me to the Zoo tomorrow and I am really looking forward to it since the weather is so great. I hope everyone has a great long weekend.

Bring on the Sun

Since it stopped raining yesterday after work I went for a walk/jog, doing the usual half and half but I went around 5 times this time. Hopefully I will be able to work up to going around a full time soon. I then went home and did my 100 crunches. My shoulders are a bit sore from them so I think I might be doing them wrong. Tonight I am going to do my strength training and crunches. Canela thanks for the suggestion, I have never measured myself maybe I will tonight and then I can go from there. I have always been so focused on the scale I don't think of much else. I hope the sun comes out soon, I painted my toenails last night and am wearing pretty sandals with the skirt today. I am so sick of winter clothes hopefully spring is here for good. Well tomorrow is my weigh in so hopefully I will be reporting some good results.

Still Moving

I did the 15 mintue kickboxing dvd last night and 100 crunches. I am feeling really good today, but stepped on the scale and it says I am up 3lbs from last week WTF. I work my ass off and its just not coming off. I am really getting frustrated at this point, I don't know what to do. I am thinking of not using my flex at all this weekend to see if it helps. Once I am at goal again I know I will need my flex points so I don't want my body to get used not having the flex I am just not sure what to do. Tonight since its still raining the plan is to do 20 mintue Biggest Loser cardio max, some hand weights for my arms and 100 crunches. Hopefully my weight will be back down for weigh in on friday.

Tuesday, May 13, 2008


I found a 50 mintue stregth training excerise on weight, I did it last night but it only took me 25 mintues. Maybe I just workout faster than some people I don't know. The plan for today was to go jogging after work but its rianing here, if it doesn't stop I am going to do 20 mintue kickboxing instead. Then hopeful tomorrow the weather will be better and I can go jogging. I am still a bit concerned that my Aps aren't very high each week, but I am working out 4 times a week. Maybe I should up it to 5 times a week and it will be better. I just can't even imagine getting 28 Aps a week that is quite a lot. I can usually fit in a 20-30 mintue workout, but anything more that that doesn't really work. I find if the workouts are around 30 mintues I can get myself motivated to go. Any suggestions?

Great Day

I had a really good day today, I went out with my best girlfriend. She took me out for lunch and then we went shopping. I bought the new Jennifer Lopez perfume it smells so good. Tonight we had to drive out to the border to return Battery's usa vistor visa and then we hit up Walmart. I found Sex and the City on dvd for $17.99 each season. He bought me the last 3 seasons to finish off my collection. I am going to watch them tonight and have some Jello and rice cakes. The best thing ever I still have 15 flex points left for Brunch tomorrow. I have usually gone throught them all by now. So I am really happy with myself.

Weigh In

I know its a day early but tomorrow is going to be crazy and I wasn't sure if I would be able to get online to log my weight or not. Also I know HTabby is leaving on her trip today and I know she has been dying to know how I did this week. So without further ado, I am down 1.2, I am back to 172.8, I am so happy. I think I can totally make my goal of being down to 170 by the end of May. My plan for this weekend is to stay on plan and not use all my flex in one day as usual I am going to try to only use half of my flex this weekend and see how I do.

I just wanted to thank everyone for helping me out when I was getting down and being my cheering squad espiscally(sp) HTabby you are awesome!

I went for my walk/jog after work today, I went around the track 4 times, walking half way then
jogging half way. I am happy that I went for it and I felt great afterwards, but I am kind of frustrated that I can't make it all the way around yet. I know I need to build up slowly it only my second time out lately. Now that the weather is better I am trying to keep it up, I was to go jogging/walking 2-3 times a week and do weights/crunches/squats two times a week. I am feeling really good this week with eating well and the excerise. Hopefully I will see a nice loss this week, but if its not a big one I won't be too disapponited since I had a bad eating wise weekend. I am feeling really excited about excerise and weight watchers lately it hasn't happened in a long time.

Day 3

Well I did end up going out for dinner last night, I had a blackened chicken burger with salad for 11 points. It was really good I would get it again next time I go. I didn't get a chance to get any excerise last night with going out for dinner last night. Tonight I am working an extra half an hour so I won't be home to 5:00pm, I usually get home at 4:30pm but I hope the weather stays the same and I am going to go for a jog/walk again. I am feeling good from getting this excerise again. I took a look at the scale this morning and I am up a pound from last week, I have been working hard this week so hopefully I see a loss or stay the same at least. I ate a lot of junk last weekend so it might be from that. I am drinking lots of water today so hopefully that will help a bit. Well here is my menu for today.

B-Banana & Oatmeal
L-Sandwich, apple, fruit snacks
S-Plum and Bananan

I am not sure Battery will be home first so whatever he cooks.

Tuesday, May 6, 2008

Good Day

I woke up this morning and it was a beautiful day so I decided to head out for walk/jog. I went around the track 4 times, walking half the way and then jogging half. It feels good to actually get some excerise for once. My plan for this week is to get some excerise each day, tuesday night we are going out for dinner with some people from my work, but I know where we are going and I have planned out my dinner, so I can plan my day accordingly. It feels great to be back in control again. Battery and I had a nice relaxing day today, after my run I came home and got back into bed with him stayed there for most of the day. We haven't done that in forever so it was nice to do, then in the afternoon my brother dropped by with the twins. It was great to see them because it had been a few weeks. They are crawling like crazy now its soo cool. I didn't do that great eating wise but I had some flex left and I only went over my points by a couple so I am feeling really good. I am still super tired today I am not really sure what is wrong with me, it might be because tom is on its way. I am going to get to bed early and have a good sleep. Thats all for me now, I'll be back tomorrow.

Busy Day

Today was crazy busy, I didn't have time for excerise, but I am still feeling run down so I will get back on it tomorrow. Eating wise wasn't too great but I had all my flex and my daily points left so I think I did good. This morning Battery and I took my grandparents grocerry shopping and to Walmart. At Walmart we were looking for a pool for the twins for there birthday, I can't believe they are almost one already. Anyways they didn't have it at that location so we kind of gave up on it. Then we headed back out again to see IronMan it was really good I really enjoyed and we picked up Pizza for dinner. After dinner I started calling Walmarts in the area to find the pool. I finally found one at a location about 30 mintues from here, but they wouldn't hold it overnight so we headed out to get it at 9pm. Now we are finally home and I am getting a chance to relax, we rented Mario Kart for the Wii, it was good but I still like the one on gamecube better. Well I am off to bed now, looks like I gave everyone a blow by blow of my day I hope I didn't bore everyone too much. I hope everyone has an enjoyable rest of the weekend. I will post more tomorrow.

Weigh In

I am down 1.2 from last week when I was back up to 175. So I am just going to keep working at it and keep losing every week. My goal is to be down 13lbs by the end of August. So far I am working my way there. I went to the dentist last night for my filling and my mouth was really frozen. Then because I was starving when the freezing wore off at 7, I had a poutine for dinner. Not the best choice but I journalled it and moved on. My goal for today is to eat well, drink 3 liters of water. I am still feeling a bit run down but not as bad as early in the week, I am mostly just tired now. I think by the end of the weekend I should be back to normal.
