New Year, New Trials and Tribulations, Let’s GO!

Last year was ok until I hit that bad bump. But it is 2017, Happy New Year, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season, we did. I am excited, and I am back on my diet (way of life) lol. This is my 5th day. Saturday was my second weight in, so I will show both in a moment, but I will tell you, I did gain weight, that is a no brainer after my last post. So here we go (again)~! BUT I also lost weight, so Yay!

I began writing this, last week so I do have an additional weigh-in. I thought about titling my weight status like I did before, but since I won’t be doing one each week, I may just group a few. I really have so much going on, I have to organize my time better. It is so hard, though, I get sidetracked, and that throws me off.

I managed 40 minutes walking on the treadmill today lol, man I miss where I was before, I really screwed up, but I cannot keep kicking myself in the ass over it. I just have to tell myself, I will do better, I know better now.

I noticed I gained a little this last weigh in. I have a cheat day, which I will still keep for sanity reasons lol. But I need to make a habit of not over indulging, or this will defeat the purpose of what I am trying to achieve.

One weigh in left for the month, I will come back with that one, and after that, I will do an update either every 2 weeks or monthly, as I have so many other things I need to do.

Happy New Year, I hope you all succeed in what you would like to accomplish this year! until next time.

Live, Love & Laugh

Dieting and Me

Not on a dietSo it has been a while since I posted. I have been super busy with some of my other websites, but now that I have that in order *yay* I can start blogging normally. So the last I posted about was the biggest loser, I’m not going to get into that, instead I am going to briefly talk about my dieting, as the title suggests.

 

In January 2014, I decided to finally fulfill one of my New Years resolutions, I’m trying to do more than one but a big one that a lot of us have a hard time keeping up with is losing weight. So I dove right in. Found out what my calorie intake should be, it’s 1,660, and I have been doing wonderful. Being that the weather has been so cold, going out and walking was not an option, because I have a bad knee and I don’t want to risk walking and slipping and re-injuring my knee, because that will lead to hospital time and a big fat bill.

 

I had already been in the hospital this year, I don’t want to go again. So I am waiting for some wonderful warm weather to start so I can start my walking, even if it is just to the laundry facility here in the complex, it’s something, then go to the Post office and CVS. I think it’s a beginning. To date I have lost 32.5 lbs, I am very proud of that, because that is the most I ever lost in my life, being at the weight I am now, which I am too embarrassed to share at this moment heh It is a slow process, as you all know, losing is harder than gaining. I’m planning to perhaps get a treadmill for walking at home. Any suggestions? Nordictrack looks good. But we’ll see.

 

My eating habit is much better. I’ve been eating some prepared meals, mostly at lunch time. Everything I consume is charted, in my handy MyFitnessPal app, it’s a great app, I’m sure I have talked about it before. William usually will buy me the Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine etc, since I only have them for lunch, occasionally dinner they last. So when a sale comes around, you know we are buying. I know don’t use reg sugar, I use substitute sugar, I’m happy with Truvia and Stevia Organic, I drink fat free milk, I use fat free cheese, always looking for the lowest calorie items.

 

William is my #1 supporter on this, since he is here. He is incredible, and I thank the lord I found someone like that, none of my ex’s were like that, I tell you, HE IS THE ONE, for me anyway. I’m not ready to show photos of myself, again way too embarrased, but when I have felt that I see a difference, perhaps then I will. I have to say I do feel it. I use to walk up the stairs and get winded out before I reached the top, no longer happens, I am so happy. You have no idea. This is my journey, I thank you for coming along with me. You can see what I eat, I post photos on instagram, you can see that on the sidebar to the right. Follow if you like, and if you are a MyFitnessPal user, add me as a friend, or contact me here on this site, I’ll look for you.

 

Ok that is it for now, have a great day!
