Well it’s been a week and we’ll get to it… I lost six pounds since last week for a total of 23.5 pounds. 4 full weeks down. Not bad and I am very happy. I am walking anywhere from 2 – almost 4 miles every day. I am hitting my Nike Fuel goal of 2500 every day. Some days are harder than others but I hit that goal and work towards it all day long. I am getting pretty comfortable with the walking. It seems to be working. I was going to add weights and what not after a month but maybe next week.
I find myself working really hard at this. I get frustrated. I hate going into Wawa’s and store. I WANT CHOCOLATE! I want salty potato chips.
I didn’t even do a cheat day this week because there just wasn’t anything I wanted and it really wasn’t worth it in the end. But it’s been lots and lots of chicken. A very small side and that’s it for dinner. Lots and lots of protein… natural peanut butter and eggs.
So I don’t really have much to report other than that. I walk. Watch every little thing I put into my mouth and I work. Next day repeat.
I turn 43 on Saturday!
Well today makes 21 days on my new journey and it’s been a hell of a week. I know after this week that I can do this… I had some things happen on Friday that set me off a little but I didn’t turn to emotional eating. I just stuck through it. I walked and walked and walked. I did over three miles on Sunday. I have no idea when the last time I walked that far was. But I did it.
So before I get too deep into things here. Let me tell you that I lost over 6 pounds this week and am now at 17.5 total pounds in. I mean come on, there are only 82.5 more to go. LOL. But I am going to get there. I mean it just shows me that I am going to have weeks like I did last week where I only lost 1/2 a pound and while my body adjusts, that I just have to stay on the good path. I am only 33 pounds from a new tattoo.
I got up tho morning and guess what I did? Yes, you guessed it. I walked. I did over 2 miles.
Now I walked Friday and I didn’t walk as much because of my show at the casino and little by little I crushed my goal. Saturday I had a wedding to play and DID NOT walk. It took me awhile but I made the goal somewhere in the second set. I find myself moving more and more when I know I have to on stage so it helps too.
Sunday, I was in pain. My arthritis in my feet was killing me. So in the early afternoon, I decided that It was time to walk and that I just had to suck it up. And then i had my best walk yet. I also went to Target to get a Magic Bullet to make my smoothies. I broke the knock off one I bought so it was time to pay the piper.
So this week is heading in the right direction. I am facing my demons one at a time and though it sucks sometimes I know I’ll have a much better summer both personally and on stage if I can keep it up. And I will keep it up. Can’t stop won’t stop.
I crushed today.
I feel good.
I am blessed.
I walked over 15 miles last week and I’m not really sure what happened today when I got on the scale.I can tell you that my heart fell from my chest in my lap. I know that I am not eating enough, but I definitely thought that after walking almost 15 miles last week if not more that I lost more weight. But when all was said and done, I lost half a pound as of today. That is 11 1/2 pounds total. Two weeks. Not bad for most people. I thought I could do better.
So now what? I know I have to eat more. It’s very hard for me to eat super healthy and get to the calories that I need to get without drinking them. I will see what the nutritionist says on Wednesday after my metabolism test. It is very hard not to feel deflated. But what can I do except keep moving forward. I’ve been saying it out loud as much as possible. For all those around me to see. And it’s time that I follow my own lead.
I worked a lot today and still didn’t get a good lunch. I need to eat more during the day and less at night.
I hit my goal. I worked it tonight no matter what. That’s how you take a shitty day and turn it the hel around.
Tomorrow is another day!
I am sorry that I didn’t blog yesterday. So I’ll wrap up the weekend for anyone who might be reading today.
I know I am not eating enough. I am under my calories every day, especially after I exercise. We’ll see what the nutritionist says on Wednesday. I am not starving. It is what it is.
So Saturday I woke up, forced myself out of bed and hit my walk for 2.8 miles. I could not believe that I got out of bed at 7:45am when I didn’t have to and went and did my walking. It was a little slower than usual but I got it over with. I had a photo shoot to take care of and then some thrifting and looking for studio props… I was tired…. And of course I had a show with the band so needless to say I woke up this morning totally in pain. My feet were on fire. And if you follow me on twitter. I am sure you heard me complain. I had two drinks. But no soda, junk food, candy. Nothing. I can’t believe tomorrow it will be 14 days even without chips or crap.
Today was an all day shoot at the studio. I wasn’t hungry when I woke up for some reason. But I forced down some cereal. Steak and potatoes for dinner. Measured out and logged. It was good.
I am nervous about weighing in tomorrow. I know that my body has to be catching up to things now but I hope I at least lost 5 pounds. That will keep me motivated. That will keep me pushing forward. Well either way I have to push forward.
So we will see tomorrow morning.
