I was 122.6 this morning, which is under the 123 mark, whoo hoo! One of my new year’s resolutions was to walk everyday on my lunch break, which I have been doing so far! I read somewhere that in order to keep your body in fat burning mode it is important to keep it vertical and not sitting for long periods of time. So I am going to do this in addition to my usual workouts and hope that jump starts my weight loss more!
123.6 this morning. Slightly back on track. Just gotta get through one more NYE party with snacks and goodies and hopefully, after that, back on track FOR good! This morning I did a new kickboxing workout which was fun and got me sweating. My husband bought me like 5 new workout DVDs for Christmas so I am excited to try them all, hopefully it will help me bust through my plateau.
So far today: a protein shake with soy milk, flaxseed, and stevia. An orange and a piece of dark chocolate.
Going to try to do my best to wait a week to weigh in, starting tomorrow! Good luck to every1 else!
Okay so we started the process the middle of August and here it is December and we still have not started escrow!! It looks like at least another 2 months before we move. Also our appraiser said our house is actually 200 square feet smaller then previously noted. At least the brings down the cost. Banks are SOOOO slow, and it is getting frustrating waiting, but what else can ya do.
I didn’t get the job I wanted and waited for. However, the company now has my resume and says there is another position I might be interested in, we will see if they get back to me. Also I took a written exam for another job and I just got a letter stating I passed the test, but they are not going to consider me further in the process, what is that about?!? In the meantime, I will continue my search and not give up.
After too many Christmas parties and too much slacking I am up to 125 this morning. That is 3 pounds in like 2 weeks, I really just hope some of it is water weight. I don’t think I will have the opportunity to make better food choices this weekend or next, but I will try my best. Sigh.
I hate seeing how much money goes toward interest on my student loans! Right now I am trying to prioritize my whole life to try to pay off these dang loans. My husband donates about 400 dollars every month to charities, I really want to tell him to put more money toward my loans so that we can both be in a better position, do you think thats a fair thing to do? I really feel like I can’t start my life until this debt is significantly decreased. Right now it is about 60k.
so after a phone screening, a computer skills test, and an interview, the company said they would get back to me on Monday (2 days ago) is it safe to assume I just didn’t get the job? THey said it is between me and another person. They are really taking their time, I first applied back in the beginning of October!
So after months of going between 124 and 125 I am finally back down to 121.8 which is quite a big feat considering the holidays and my love of holiday treats. I happy to just be able to maintain through the next month or so. THen I will really get on track with weight loss goals. I find it is hard to post when I gain weight, but will try to do that more frequently!
121.6 this morning. Down .4 lbs from last friday. I have decided that I need to break my scale addiction. All week I was weighing myself and it was going up then today it went back down even lower than last weeks weight. I really takes me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. So from now on I will only weigh in every friday morning to chart progress. This will be hard to do but Im going to go hide my scale right now!
Also going to do cardio & yoga today!
so at the beginning of the year I owed 70k in all my debt. This is 4 student loans and a car loan. Now I am down to 64k. 3 student loans and a car loan. I still feel like it is a lot, but at least I am making progress in the right direction. Considering my husband and I also had to pay for our own wedding this year, I am hoping I can be more aggressive in the coming years and be rid of this debt once and for all so that I can move on!! I really like using mint.com because I see how much interest is adding everyday and it encourages me to make an extra payment if possible. HOpefully down to 62k by the end of the year.
SO the bank came back with a counter offer- 8k more than we originally offered. We looked at the house again yesterday and are trying to decide how much of a down payment we want to do ( 3.5% minimum or more?) because it only changes the mortgage payment slightly. We have heard some differing opinions as to what the best option is. We can’t do the full 20% to avoid PMI but could do 10%. I am going to look at an open house today and then Monday we will tell our realtor if we want to sign for the house! Then begins inspections and all of that.
122 today! In order to strive to lose the last 5-8 lbs I bought a new pair of running shoes ( it has been almost 5 years since I bought my last pair!) and downloaded some new itunes songs that will pump me up during my workout. I am also going to try to cook this new healthy chicken couscous recipe I saw in my fitness magazine. I am hoping this will renew my energy and help me bust through my usual plateau at this point. Here’s to staying motivated!
I am so tired of gaining and losing the same 5 pounds, it is really starting to wear me out. I think is it even worth it? What will actually make me change my habits for GOOD this time. But then I think well maybe if I wasn’t on top of it sometimes, I would just be going up instead of up and down. Anyway, after a month of being off track and traveling I am going to go back to “healthy eating” and my usual exercise and try this again. Plus October 1st is a good start date.. so here it goes again for the bazillionth time! Hoping it STICKS!
SO far today:
Oatmeal, flaxseed meal, organic apple, and soymilk. – 350 cals
Lunch: plain greek yogurt and almonds – 400 cals
Dinner: spinach, shrimp, roma tomato, cucumber, and feta cheese w/ olive oil and lemon. – 300 cals
so 121.2 today! I feel my stomach is more flat and not as bloated.I plan to do an intesne cardio session this evening since I won’t be able to workout tomorrow. 5-6 more pounds until I can finally check off this goal!
121.8 this morning! Yay it is so empowering to see that number on the scale again and it makes me want to stick to my healthy eating and exercise! I am so close to my goals, I CANNOT get side tracked this time.
Breakfast- protein and fiber shake w/ bluberries
lunch – south beach chicken and quinoa
snack- mixed nuts
dinner- ground beef with guacamole and steamed veggies.
argh! 124.6 this morning. I am going to start my pre-wedding diet again. This means no processed foods and mostly nuts, seeds, lean protein, and fruits and veggies. I am cutting out SUGAR again! Gosh all that work to lose 4 lbs and it is back so fast. My husband just doesn’t understand I can’t have junk food in the house. He brings home cookies and treats and then I eat them and he is just like ” well you must like it because you eat it.” It’s too tempting!! He leaves for two weeks on MOnday so I am hoping I can jump start my weight loss then. I will keep posting
It has been over 3 weeks and still we have heard nothing! Banks really like to sit on short sales. Anyone else have this experience?
I paid off my ACS loan! It was 1400 left and that only makes a dent in all my loans but it feels good to wipe out that one and not worry about it. So at the beginning of the year i was 69k in debt and now I am about 64k. Slow but making progress in the right direction!
wow so last time i wrote ( about two weeks ago) I was 120.8 and this morning I am 124. Vacations do not do my body good! I need to be home to stick to my plan. All that hard work for nothing it seems. Well time to start over again, I can’t just give up.
This morning 124.2
Ultimate goal- 116
I see this goal slipping farther and farther away. We finally have paid for everything for the wedding, but now we are looking to buy a house and we had to pay for a deposit and down payment etc… and then in the midst of all that my husband’s car breaks down and who knows how much that will cost to fix Why do cars always seem to do that when you are already overextended. I need to re focus on this goal…I have A LOT of student loan debt.
