Motivating

I just looked back at old posts...and the month of April seems to have been my best month. I was on track with points/weighing food/measuring portions/writing it all down... and that is when I saw the most results and was the closest to my goal... That just made me realize that I can do this :) I am back to feeling motivated!! (Probably until I get out to dinner tonight! Haha) But being dead serious, when you take the WW plan seriously and don't lie to yourself about what you ate or how much of something you ate, you will see results... I am excited to get back on track..... for the 900000th time! hahaha You can do it too!!

Hi there :)

I figured that I'd do a mid-week check in.... my week isn't going as bad as I thought but not that good either. It is my Birthday week, so that is my excuse. I have dinner out tonight, tomorrow night and Friday night.... Can't wait :)

WW Week 2

So week 2 went well with everyone at work!! I am proud of the girls!! I personally had a pretty good week. I lost 2.2 pounds and also was able to do some push-ups, sit-ups and squats throughout the week. My weekend didn't start off so well, but I did pretty good Mon-Thurs. I made it a point to drink my water everyday and try to leave myself around 12 points for dinner. Next week the goal will be NOT to use all of my bonus points and then some by Day 2! LOL
But anyway....here's to a new week!!

Phewie....

Okay, I'm feeling much better today, I did my push-ups (holy hell), sit-ups and squats last night and I had a pretty good day of eating AND most importantly my grey pants fit me!! That was exiting, they were snug last week and today they fit! That was so exciting to me :) Just wanted to share!

Size-izzle...

Okay so as I've been shifting weight and changing sizes up and down and round and round...I think that I have discovered how they figure out women's sizes in pants....

170's - size 12
160's - size 10
150's - size 8
140's - size 6
130's - size 4
120's - size 2
110's - size 0

I also have figured out how can you can be in between sizes.... if you are over the halfway mark in one of the weights...you will notice you're pants will become a bit snug... LOL you might need to move up a size to be cozy again...however that size will probably be a little big...
for example right now I am 147 and my 6's are not really cutting it the way that they used to, I probably should buy some 8's! But instead I will wear my one pair of 6's that fit and just keep on trucking...hahahha

Fired Up....

Ugh...I can't seem to drop a pound or even feel lighter...I'm getting frustrated and my pants still feel snug!!!! Hopefully someday I will lose maybe an ounce or something....just something!!
Anyway, my abs are super sore from doing push-ups... I am not at all good at the "boy" push-ups so I have to use everything I got in my ab area to keep me up and in "good form". I have no clue how I'm going to bust them out tonight! I guess you just do it! :)
Anyway, thanks for letting me vent.... I keep telling myself 2 months and I should be able to drop around 10 pounds... Fingers Crossed

Week 1

Oh yeah and today I start week one's "training" of push-up's, sit-ups and squats. I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes!

oooooooooppppssss!

Okay, so weekend number one was not so good...but that's okay I'm all out of bonus and then some "air" points as I like to call them...but I'm feeling okay about things. I made good choices when I was out, but I was still over my points... so not so bad, but definetely not so good either! I am going to have to try to stick to my daily points everyday....which means making it to dinner with at least 12 points left... That seems to be my hardest part of the day....

Sit-ups, Squats and Push-ups...Oh My!

Okay so I keep seeing a post on http://www.ronisweigh.com/ that talks about a challenge of push-ups, sit-ups and squats. Here is the challenge. I'm going to try it out!! I challenge you too as well!!! There is no excuse not to be able to do this.... you do not need a gym, weights, nice weather, that much time, to be home, etc, etc, etc :)
