Rainy Friday

Today is rainy and cold which is totally the norm for a N.S spring so we didn't walk today, but from Monday to thursday this week I walked 24 KM's!! not too shabby eh??

The Doctor wanted to see me after my blood work, and sure enough my thyroid is low and the meds are adjusted, so I am really hoping that this is the cause of my non-existent weight loss lately, fingers crossed.

Mentally I am doing fairly well, I still have my days, but who doesn't? I am trying to simplify and de clutter, but is a big job, so I'm taking it slow. The basement is crazy!! it's a mixture of empty boxes, and boxes that we have been putting off sorting through, but my goal is to have this ALL done by fall. I say fall because with the baby I can only do a little at a time so I don't want to rush through and end up in a mess again. It really doesn't matter how long it takes, as long as it gets done.

This weekend is pretty much a write off because Joey's sister and her BF are staying here, so we probably won't get much done. I'm not too keen about routine disruptions but I gotta roll with it I guess ;)

Happy friday everyone

Tired Tuesday

I am up way too early! My munchkin is teething or growing or something and has decided that 6am is her wake up time. Now she's napping all cosy in her swing, and I'm awake drinking coffee....c'est la vie :)

I am totally maintaining my weight, and totally frusterated, but I am still exercising every day. I am coming up with a new calorie plan, and trying to find some new ideas for lunches, involving beans and lentils.

Today we have playgroup, and I have yoga tonight, so I'm not sure if I'll be walking 5 or 7 km's. It depends on how much time we have before playgroup, and how my back/body are feeling. I have been quite sore lately so losing weight is the best thing that I can do.

Long weekend

Finally, a long weekend where we have nothing that we have to do. We are going to just do things that we want to do.

For Joey's birthday every year we usually do something different, that involves getting out and having fun. Since this year we are plus 1, I had to come up with something we all could do, so we went to the Salt Mars trail, in eastern passage. It was a really nice walk that took us through salt marshes and the woods in some areas, and the day was perfect, overcast, no rain and not much wind. We had a picnic lunch a little over half way through, and all in all it was a great day!! We walked 13 kms!!!! and even though it took almost 4 hours, we stopped a lot and enjoyed the views. other than some chafe, I am feeling great!! and proud that I did the whole thing!!!

I am currently reading Jillian Michaels "Master Your Metabolism" and so far so good. I am hoping it will help me lose a little weight.

Anyway, off to shower and get into my jammies.....pure heaven!

Good, bad and ugly

Not much has changed with me, but I will post some quick updates

The Good
  • I am still walking at least 5k as often as I can
  • I joined a beginner yoga class that goes for 8 weeks, and I love it!
  • Most of the time I feel great
  • I am feeling a lot happier and optomistic lately

The Bad

  • I have still not lost ANY weight
  • I feel really discouraged about the lack of weight loss
  • I hate going shopping and seeing how limited the clothes selection is for someone my size
  • I hate the fact that I need to buy some new summer clothes that I don't like and are overpriced because they are plus

The Ugly

  • The cheeseburger, onion rings and blizzard that I ate yesterday while having a poor me moment.

I just can't get a handle on this eating thing. I plan to look up healthy recipes, and make a fitness/calorie plan but I don't do it. It is my goal for this week to finish this and follow it!! Wish me luck!

I have lost my momentum!! As hard as I tried to stay positive, I am mad and disappointed that I am not losing ANY weight!!! I am exercising 5 days per week, which includes some 5k and 7k walks with the stroller, and work out videos, but still nothing. And when I measured myself, there was very little change there too. Something has to change, I just need to figure out what. I really need to make a plan and try to change things up a bit.

I am going to try limiting processed and convenient foods, as well as trying to add strength training to the mix.
I am also going to seriously limit my computer time so that I can get more things done around the house. I really need to de clutter my house and my mind.

I feel change coming, and it's going to be big!!
