around and around we go where we will stop.....

So this week, well to say the least, I didn't do any exercise. So much for my goals. This week I have no excuse except for the "monthly visitor" who decided to torment me like no other. I will be back in touch with them I hope by the beginning of this next week. I am thinking of doing another hiking trip maybe doing all of Point Lobos this week. On Monday, I work the early shift and I am thinking of doing that afterwards. As long as it isn't raining. Maybe even do a two hour hike just to make up for the rest of this week. Plus I get off early tomorrow (Sunday) so I might do something then as well. A short run around a few blocks in the area?

I did deep clean this week. I did all the dishes and vacuumed almost everything. (I missed 2 curtains that really need it) I also hung pictures up. The place is looking more homey all the time. I am loving it. Now if I could just be one of those people that has the bedroom with everything in its place I might be more happy. I can never get my bedroom the way I want it. I am to much of the clutter bug. My favorite part was though that I did rinse the dishes and put them into the dishwasher this morning which is a big deal since I mostly let them collect till the dishwasher will be full and then put them all in. This looks much better if I do say so myself. 

On another note I am also thinking about buying lemon tree for my yard. As well as building a raised veggie bed. I hear that they are really great for veggies and you tend to grow them easier. Since I have the hardest time keeping anything alive that I plant I think this will really be helpful. What are you thoughts? Also it would add into my exercise since I will have to build it all up. :-) 

I hope that next week I will give you a few more GOOD updates. I did just lose .1 pounds. Yay me! It is after all better then gaining anything. And only 8lbs to go till under 200 so........I shall need to get to it.

Who says you can't be.....?

Wow I am having a really hard time writing this blog. I have started this one at least 3 times and I haven’t been happy with what I wrote so atlas I deleted it and deleted it and you get the point.  

 I wouldn’t say that I am in a funk when it comes to exercise. As I have been getting out and doing that.  I would say that I am having a hard time with the fact that I didn’t exercise enough to do a weight loss. So this is where my problem lies. I worked out hard last week. I went on a 5 mile, walk/jog/run, some of which was up and down hills. It worked me out good. I was sweating my butt off and it wasn’t even that warm out so you know that I pushed myself. Why then when I was SUPPOSE to do my Biggest Loser weigh-in did I look like I gained. I did it on the regular wiifit game as that is how I weight myself for the week. I was so pissed. Here I am working my butt off and why? Why is it not working? I know everyone has told me that ya ya ya muscle weights more then fat I get it. I am not using that as an excuse. Bob and Jillian never do, and the would kick my Ass if I did. So no, I don’t buy it for one second. I should have pushed harder, and I will be this week. No BSing myself into thinking I did enough, there is never to much exercise.

So on the agenda for this week. I have stepped up my Biggest loser workouts from beginner to the intermediate. I hope this will help with some of my slack. Secondly I have added in doing lunges at work. I lunge when no one is around to and from whatever I am doing. I feel that this really has helped out on my legs. I need to remember to keep my abs tighten when doing this and I think that will also help.

I am going to go to the farmers market and get some walking in. I also think I might pick up some calamari or a gyro sandwich not sure which, but I am sure that it will be all my points for the day.

to infinity and beyond....

Well even with not working out so much this week I did loose 1.8lbs. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.  I am going to push harder this week. Already did one workout this morning and I will be doing a little more thing evening after I get off work. I am again going to try for 40 minute workouts this week at least 4 times. One of those days (most likely on my day off) I do want to get out of the house and do a walk/jog/run for about an hour. That for sure should help. I have been doing a lot better on the diet. Because I have lost almost 8lbs weight watchers has lowered my points by one less. I guess that is a good thing. ;-)

okay so i am not the best at this whole diet thing.

Well  I haven’t written in a week. Mostly because for part of that week I was out of town NOT behaving on my diet. Yes I know what a shame that for 4 days I splurged. Now I have gained back one of the 5 pounds that I lost. I knew that might happen but it was all worth every tiny morsel of goodness that I had while I was away. I won’t go into the gory details of the meals as that would defeat the purpose of this blog.

I have been to say the least not well this week on my exercising as well. I have worked out twice. That is all? What am I thinking? It has been a hard re-adjustment week and I can’t figure out the reason why. I was only off the diet 4 days. I came back and when right back to weight watchers points. Plus I got my appetite back? Why did that have to happen? I was doing so well on not being as hungry and more satisfied. Blah on all of the above.  

I did have a dream last night that bob and jillian where there to help me with a challenge. I think that was my own way of saying that I need to work out more. I am thinking of different ways of working out at work so that I can get my heart rate up more often.

Anyway, I believe that is all that I have for you right now.

I hope everyone is having a great week.
