waiting for the WI results…

Filed Under Four Months to Go | 3,826 Comments

so i figured that either the scale at home is off or the one at the gym is off, so last week i did an average of the two…i haven’t gone to the gym since saturday, so i haven’t been able to get the median just yet. i am thinking i will make the conscious effort to go tonight after work, even if i dont have the time to jump in the pool for 30 minutes. this week is going to be tough, week before spring break and naturally all the classes have midterms and are just very demanding right now. :sighs: well chicks i gotta get back into some studying for a quiz tomorrow, will update later tonight hopefully. thanks for checking in all! xoxo

nervous…

I’m a bit nervous for WI tomorrow only because I want to hit my mini goal so bad, since I’m already behind a week from the time I was sick. πŸ™ But I’m going to take it with my head high since there was nothing i could have done with being sick and exercising…also i don’t know why but i’ve had a hole in my foot the past few days and its been driving me nuts. it’s been extremely hard to hold myself back from gorging on things i dont need. but the last two nights i couldn’t help myself πŸ™ i went and ate a medium size bowl of honey bunches of oats with clusters. :sighs: i mean better than a bowl of ice cream, but still, definately not needed. it’s because the hubby’s not here because of work so i can’t sleep well and instead stay up late, and get bored…self-control, self-control…i haven’t had this problem in a long time, so i dont know where its coming from, but i’m not liking it. the next time i get the urge to indulge i’m going to shove water down my throat and force myself to go to sleep.
Can someone tell me how to change and create a blog roll? i noticed most ppl have it setup now and i’m dying to play with mine. πŸ™‚ hope you all are having an awesome weekend surrounded by family and friends! xoxo

Happy HUMP day!

yay half way through this rough week…my last class got canceled today which was nice, gave me more time with the hubby and some catch up on the exercise routine to make up for last week’s lag. πŸ™‚ Sorry Tiny2b and other chicks for not keeping up with that challenge! i was completely looking forward to it, but having been sick not sure what the heck happened…
So today we were able to get in the pool and only got 700 yds done, but was happy with that because for some reason the new goggles were leaking and my right eye began getting irritated. πŸ™ but i made up for the lost yardage in running tonight with my sister and the dogs(which was a nice surprise). Pleasantly surprised to know that i’m getting closer to that ultimate goal by having dropped just a lb while sick, but that was expected since there was no direct exercise involved. Now WI was at 185…
I still got some hmwk I gotta get done before going to bed tonight so I should be off doing that right now, but completely feel like I’ve neglected in updating this. :sighs: so little time these days.
I am very excited for Saturday, we’re having a 5k walk/run and i got my aunt and my mom involved, so it’ll be a nice speed walk with some minimal mingling. i figure if anything i’ll take it was some nice chick to chick talk. πŸ™‚
hope you all had a great week so far…only half way there!

tomorrow is the day

hi chicks! gosh it’s been a rough week…a paper and test and being sick is no fun through it πŸ™ so as you can imagine i haven’t had any workouts this week. particularly because i wanted to be sure to be healed completely, don’t want this cold lingering around any longer than it has to. but i’m glad to report that i feel exceptionally better today. i had boogers still today, but definately significantly less. πŸ™‚ i figure most of you gals are mommy’s, so “boogers” dont gross you out πŸ˜‰ i told the hubby tonight (before he left for work) that i think tomorrow i’ll be up for some intro back into the workout scene, so very excited to ease my way back into the routine. πŸ™‚ glad to report too that the hubby is lookin good! veerrrry excited, i know he’s been tryin’ real hard, so i’m glad that we’re doing this together. πŸ™‚ well chicks it’s almost midnight here and gotta wake up early to go to court for a ticket…running off to bed now. hope everyone had an TOTALLY TERRIFIC THURSDAY! yay weekend just around the corner!

Bitter sweet

I am totally excited for having hit the minigoal last week! thanks to all the inspirational blogs and comments from this site, as well as the support system from the hubby. It was definately a loooong week, and I’m afraid this week will be even longer, since I caught something over the weekend. I’m almost positive I know where the culprit came from (SCHOOL!), last thursday a lady came to share a table with me here in the library and she was coughing up a lung. i only stayed about 5 minutes before a cubie opened up and i moved. i downed some vitamin C on my way home that night, but i think the lack of sleep and all the change in foods made my immune system up for grabs. I’ve been battling this cold all weekend, trying not to let it get the best of me, and when i woke up this morning it decided to take full charge. its not too cold here in Long Beach, but I brought my scarf and my thick sweater, ppl kind of look at me funny because i’m so bundled, but i just dont feel very well so i dont care. haha. i’m done for the day with classes, but am so behind on homework that i’m trying to tough it out.
well dont want to go on and on about the personal life….a good friend of mine and i may be taking a pilates course tomorrow, if they’ll let us add in…so that’ll be fun and a change of scenery, hopefully i can do it even if my nose is stuffy tomorrow. i’m also hoping that i feel better by Wednesday so that I can start easing back into either the pool or some other cardio. really want to keep pushing for that goal…3 lbs this week…ready…goooooooo!

Amazing….

So I feel accomplished and my muscles are screaming at me that they haven’t felt this way since last summer. Thanks to the hubby kickin my butt at the gym. Worked on bis, tris and abs (just a lil bit) also ran about .75 of a mile nonstop (lol which was a goal and now an accomplishment) baby steps…baby steps. Goal for tomorrow is to hit the gym and track hard for WI on Sunday afternoon…eeks! Hopefully I hit that minigoal of mine…I’d be ultra satisfied, considering the hard time I’m having adjusting to time mangagement with exercise, school, work and my personal “down time.” Got a sweet shift for tomorrow…10a-2p yay! πŸ™‚ and then got to run to Target for some personal hygiene stuff. Then off to workin out with the hubby. After that hopefully give myself about an hour or two of just veggin’ out and then hit the books hard since I have that big paper due Wednesday. :sighs: oh the fun never stops. πŸ™‚ but at least I have a game plan AND i have a support team behind me. lucky i am…i know πŸ˜‰ hope all you chicks had a awesome and glorious friday finishing off an awesome week filled with goals that were ACCOMPLISHED…what an amazing feeling it is. Happy weekend!

First week officially done…

and it wasn’t too bad, considering I had my last midterm and a paper due. We did our extensive workouts throughout the weekend, had great food choices all week, only downfall, found it hard to squeeze in the hour or so of workout time between work and school… :/ but I guess we can’t be choosy. My concern was getting enough rest to ensure not getting sick, since it seems like everyone at school and work are sick with some type of virus. Just want to stay healthy so that when I do have downtime I can take advantage of it. The hubby and I agreed not to weigh ourselves constantly, infact we were going back and forth in when to really weigh in…I think we settled on a follow up this Sunday…dum dum duuuuum. πŸ™‚ Its THAT time of month, so I’m hoping when I jump on the scale I won’t scare myself away…I’m giving myself an extra lb for water weight, although I heard it could account for much more…we’ll see. πŸ™‚

We also made an adjustment for our goal. So we have some personal reasons why we’re pushing this even faster and harder, with new eating habits and avid, healthy exercise, we’re going to aim for a 30 lb knock down….so here’s the new goal:

Wish me luck….Hope everyone had a managable week!

P.S. I read some of you guys talking about Dude’s posts, I only read her first sentence and already agree, she should definately be kicked out, this isn’t a place to vent about your personal sex life or rant about how unproductive you are as a person. Let’s try to motivate each other or search for some kind encouragement that can be reciprocated shall we? Jeez louise…

woohoo..it feels so good :)

Tired of being lazy

Filed Under Four Months to Go | 6,789 Comments

Hi chicks!Β  Gosh it’s been FOREVER since I’ve been by.Β I truly don’t have any real excuse considering I got my first test scores back and clearly it doesn’t show that I’ve been cramming for all of my classes.Β So I guess all I really have to attribute my absense to is laziness.Β The first step to getting it right is admitting where your faults are right?Β 

Β 

So the hubby and I made a deal that I have until June 1st to drop 15 pounds and then hopefully, from then until December 31st I have to drop another 15 lbs. The difficult part?Β Getting back into my routine. I completely know off hand that I’m not going to have the strength nor the time to really get into my crazy swim workouts, but I sure can start getting STARTED..if that makes any sense. I just got off of work about an hour ago, I have some errands to run with the hubby going to relax with him till he has to go to work (He works graveyard) then going to go to the gym as soon as he leaves, around 10:30p. I’m trying not to think about how physcially tired I am right now, and want to remind myself of the summer that’s coming around the corner and how bad I want to be able to go to the beach with friends without feeling like I can’t even wear a tight shirt because it’ll shun ppl off. So here’s to another attempt and hopefully a new mindset.

Thanks to Delitagain for checkin up on me periodically, you’re probably one of the main reasons why I’ve bounced back. Thanks again your support means so much! πŸ™‚

:raises water bottle:Β  here’s to another goal and some results. cheers chicks!
