Gotta love the feeling skinny days March 18, 2010

Filed under: *Good Days* — debi @ 9:38 am

So as posted above I have to call today a “feeling” skinny day. Everyday now when I wear something I can just feel it in my clothes. the baggy spot in the front where my big belly would hang out on my shirts, don’t get me wrong its still there but it’s going away. I love it. I think this is the first time that i can FEEL a difference. Yesterday I was outside smoking with my husband and I saw my reflection and I just couldn’t help but look and say wow I can’t believe how much weight I have lost. granted it’s only 34 lbs but still!! And tomorrow is weigh in day so hopefully i’m below the 196.6 .. eeeehhh i’m excited

I have been doing very very well with my eating, which I am surprised. It has been difficult but I’ve been kickin ass and takin names, with the gym , eating, everything! I think my body and mind is starting to like the idea of weight loss, liking the gym , etc. and loving the way I feel. I feel more confident. I always wear jackets, hoodies, etc. everything to cover myself up and today.. I decided to NOT wear a jacket and I cannot tell you how many people noticed. “oh debra wow your not wearing a jacket, wow your not wearing a hoody”.. it’s because of the buldge!! lol I know I have a lot of work to do but I feel so great. I love how my clothes aren’t fitting my pants feel so loose and baggy , my shirts aren’t buldging in the font. God I could go on forever about how good this feels.
Also this might not be a very nice thing but hey it’s my blog so I’m going to say what I want. I do have to admit that I am excited to pass my sister’s weight.. she was very overweight .. about 273 a year ago and I talked her into getting a gym membership with me and she is the one who lost all the weight. She is down to 180 and looks great and I’m so proud of her. My whole family compliments her and gives her kudos which she deserves. But now it’s my turn.. they focused everything on her and now .. It’s MY turn. I am almost there and I can’t wait to shove it in her face! lol jk jk jk I am super proud of her but also it’s like since everything with her noone has even thought about me or my weight loss effort and I want my turn to be acknowledged. just once.

Anywho today is going great. Had a great work out this morning, my whole grain toast. chicken for lunch and my oh so lovely tuna salad. for dinner and making extra for lunch tomorrow to bring to work. I sat down with my husband last night and explained to him that I noticed that I do much better when I plan EVERYTHING ahead of time. So that part is already set! And he was super supportive as usual. But yes the planning helps me so much, like yesterday for example. I was giving my daughter some doritos and I was about to put one in my mouth, totally mindlessly, and stopped myself.. and asked “Is this apart of the plan”.. I was sooooo proud of myself. I have never done that!!! ever.. I feel like this time is for good. this time I CAN do it .

Have a good day everyone and I will post tomorrow and hopefully i’m down a pound or two.

 

~Happy Green Day~ March 17, 2010

Filed under: *Good Days* — debi @ 6:43 am

Well last night was really good. I went home and my husband noticed that I didn’t go to the gym (I felt like a little kid in trouble) and talked me into playing The Biggest Loser Wii workout. So I felt guilty and I spent all that money on it and last time I did really enjoy it so I decided to do it again since I did miss the gym. I was still way sore from the other day of doing it so I tried the full body work out and it was hard but not too bad. I was sweating and I felt good afterwards and I love the cool downs after the work out because it’s like 8 minutes of yoga moves and stuff and it just totally makes me feel relaxed and like all that work was worth it!! And my hubby is so supportive and loving he made some chicken and mushrooms with asaparagus for me!! and the not so healthy stuff for him! But he has a GREAT build so he doesn’t need to loose or gain. He’s purrrrrrfect ;) … at least for me

This morning I had a slice of whole grain toast with butter spray, vanilla chi tea.
Lunch will be the tuna salad with whole grain noodles that I made yesterday!
and dinner is leftovers from last night so chicken and asparagus !!

A friend of mine the other day asked if I eat anything other than chicken… NO I don’t. lol . I love chicken, I love it with everything and it’s good for me sooo kiss my butt! lol I do however try to spice it up every now and then, so if it’s not chicken I get salmon and always have a lot of fun finding a healthy new recipe to try!

So I went to the gym this morning (finally got out of bed !!!) and did a hard workout. I sweat a lot more than usually and I just really really wanted to push myself and it worked. and also when I did the weights usually I do what’s comfortable but this time I really pushed myself and did the most I could do and was killin it!!! (In SUCH a good way) . So I left there feeling amazing and still sore from that work out and The Biggest Loser Game… oh btw I watched that episode last night and I’m loving this part of the game. When you can notice everyone’s weight loss. It’s my favorite part of the show. I however don’t like the unfairness of the teams boys and girls .. but it’s ok!! Sam is my favorite! Go team black

I’m feelin good all together and I just love it. And I also have to throw in that I am wearing my only green shirt.. and it’s kind of my “fat shirt” and it’s baggy in the front.. :) YAY!!!

Have a GREAT day ladies!

 

Back on the train!! March 11, 2010

Filed under: *Good Days* — debi @ 12:03 pm

It’s been awhile since I wrote in here and I have been doing horribly but now I am back on the train and ready to kick some butt!!!
I went off the diet train for about two weeks. My last blog mentioned about some of my issues with my husband and needless to say I made a huge dicision to seperate us and for awhile I just lost it. I covered my sadness, my loneliness, everything I was feeling with food. I was sad, I was alone, I was bored and I turned to food for comfort. I didn’t work out, I didn’t do anything for two weeks. I am soooooo grateful that I am back on and I didn’t gain any weight. I was so terrified to get on that scale but it was nothing what I was expecting and it just made me want to start back up again more.
Also with that said. I realized that I am such an emotional eater. Seeing myself during that time and how much I ate.. Made me sick. I was googling some good self help books to help with it and I found. Women, Food and god .. and so far it’s amazing. I suggest everyone read it. It helps you realize and acknowledge your feelings that are making you want to eat, etc. Anyways I am doing good and I hope to continue!!
My husband got a job and now he is back home and things finally feel like they are falling into place. I started going to the gym again this week. I got myself a massage yesterday to jump start it and make myself feel great and so I didn’t go to the gym today .. Usually my body feels like a noodle the day after so I gave myself a day to relax.. Today I ate
Breakfast - 2 slices of whole grain bread with butter spray
lunch- 1 chicken breast with 4 HUGE asparagus’ plus diet coke
Dinner — still undecided but I found a great recipe from Bobby Flay for Talapia’s ..

Thank you for everyone and their blogs.. it really does help!!

also I am having such a chocolate craving right now .. I realized it’s boredom.. but also it’s that time of the month so that doesn’t help either but all I keep thinking about is chocolate. anything sweet. chocolate chocolate chocolate. But after reading the book I am just allowing myself to feel this feeling. and I put my boredom to good use by reading the book or by writing this !! lol win win situation

 

Good Friday February 12, 2010

Filed under: *Good Days* — debi @ 8:10 am

Well I survived the pizza, cake and ice cream last night at Madison’s birthday party, what a relief!!! I am so surprised at myself but so proud. I think that was a huge test for me and I’m glad to say that I passed with flying colors. I finally feel like instead of a diet that I have actually incorperated it as a life style change and THAT part.. Feels amazing!!! I’ve never stuck to eating healthy, excersise, etc and it feels awesome. Go ME!!!
So Next week I decided at my gym I am going to take a kickboxing class to spice things up a little bit, or maybe even zumba. I have heard good things about both but right now with some crazy stuff that is going on in my life kickboxing just sounds so attractive and so me. !!!! I am excited to get out of my comfort zone and to do something different with excersise. I feel like I just need a change of pace.
So if you read my last post I was very excited that the scale read until 200 so I have made a decision to treat myself to a massage on Saturday. I don’t really have extra spending money or anything like that but when I got my tax return than I put some money aside for this purpose and it’s finally here!!! yay !!! It’s something that I have wanted and never had and I kept telling myself to get to that point and that will be my reward, my next reward when I reach 180 is a new tat. So it’s something to look forward too!
So tonight I am going to support my friend at her belly dancing thingy dingy, I don’t know what it’s really called but its her first time and I didn’t want to join because I’m just not into that but she really enjoys it and I am going for her tonight. I’m excited to get out of the house, away from food, etc. and have a good old girls night!
And since this is just for me to be chatty and talk about whatever the gosh darn I please lol, On a side personal note, I’m a little irritated at my husband, god knows I love that man with all my heart, he has just been out of a job for about 4 months and everything is a struggle right now and I am starting to resent him for it a little bit. I have always been the one to carry the weight and it’s just too hard. I gave him a choice and hopefully he fixes things before I have to impliment it. I sure hope so. We have two girls together and I’m trying to better my whole life for all of us and myself and I just ask for the same, I want us to be equals but sometimes it doesn’t feel that way with him and I.

Well good luck with everyone today!! lovers you all!
