i feel so weird when other people refer to me as “little”, “skinny”, or “tiny”. i don’t think that i am. i have lost 30+ lbs since fall of 2011, but that doesn’t really seem like such a great accomplishment to me. a lady i work with calls me “skinny minnie” all the time, since we both were on weight watchers around the same time and she is proud of my progress. and today, a random stranger i was cutting fabric for and i were talking about thrift shopping and she said something along the lines of “well, you’re tiny - so you can find a lot more things at those places!” uhhh. i wish i was tiny. i still have 10 lbs to go on my weight loss (christmas only set me back 5+ pounds… i thought it’d be more!) meh. whatever. i should take the compliments.
I just realized that I’m 10lbs away from my goal weight.
good thing I just bought a Jillian Michaels DVD to get my ass in gear.
well, tumblr decided to be an asshole last night and didn’t want to work, so i have to post yesterdays stuff today.
anywho, yesterday was day two of mine and Christiaan’s little 3 week workout extravaganza. i ran/walked 5 laps at the park, so i’m pretty happy about that.
i didn’t have time for breakfast, so i just ate a bigger lunch. i had a turkey sandwich with provolone cheese and lite miracle whip on wheat bread, two bananas, an orange, and a couple servings of sour cream and onion Pringles.
for dinner, i had chicken, asparagus, and brown rice. i had some rocky road ice cream for dessert.
later on, Christiaan talked me into working out together via skype. i’m actually really happy we did, because it’s just another way of doing things together even though we are so far away from each other. :)
look how cute we are. :)
well, this is going to be an interesting 3 weeks…
so, my boyfriend and I decided to get our butts in gear for the next 3 weeks and eat healthy and work out before my vacation to see him at the end of may. I decided that my tumblr would be a great place to post my progress so he and I can keep each other motivated. :)
starting weight: 157
day one: ran/walked a mile and a third (aka 4 laps at the park). I knew I was out of shape, but I’m not as bad as I thought I’d be. I’m going to try to walk less tomorrow and maybe just do a jog instead of a full on run. when I got home, I attempted some push ups and sit ups.. but I think I’d do better if I did those prior to running. tonight i did some crunches.. i didn’t want to do too much of anything because i don’t want to tire myself out early. better luck tomorrow!
for breakfast I had a couple bananas. I woke up late, so that’s all I really had time for. lunch time, heather and i went to wegmans and got $6 meals. i got grilled lemon pepper chicken breast with a side of couscous, spinach, and feta, and a side of butternut squash, spinach, and craisins. yum! oh, and a little pack of apple slices and peanut butter. i didn’t really have a dinner, but i did eat like 5 or so mini butterfingers candies at work. :( oh well, no ones perfect. i’ve also been drinking water like its my job, and i’ve noticed that helping a lot. yay me.
time for skype and bed. BYE.
weigh-in number twenty three.
down another pound and a half! :)
and what did i do to reward myself? i ate like shit today with chicken fingers and fries for dinner. it was so delicious and now i feel like a slob. the funny thing is, i was craving veggies all day. i just didn’t want to do any full-out grocery shopping, so i went with the easy option. am i regretting it? kind of yes, kind of no. i really did enjoy the barbecue-y goodness and the crinkle-cut fries… but if i could have just sucked it up and gone to Wegman’s for fruit and veggies and maybe some chicken, i could’ve made a fantastic dinner for one. oh well, thats what i’ll do this weekend. :)
today was a good day.
i usually hate drill weekends, but today wasn’t bad at all. i had to get measured and stuff and found out i lost 2 inches in my hips since last month. that is freaking awesome. :) i also made valentines with the girls during drill. so it was an over-all good weekend.
i’m just super excited that my hips are two whole inches smaller!! and my two favorite shows are back tonight!! Once Upon A Time and The Walking Dead. i’m so happy. :)
weigh-in number twenty two.
well, it has been a frustrating few weeks. i haven’t lost.. in fact, i gained 3 pounds during the time i haven’t been updating… that is, until this past week!
i have gotten so terrible at tracking. its not that i wouldn’t track my points, i’d just always go over. i made sure that this past week i was good. i didn’t want to go over, and i didn’t. and you know what that got me? four pound weight loss! (which really just equals out to one pound weight loss, but i’ll take it!)
my daily points even went down to 26 per day! woo! :)
Weight Watchers update.
for those of you who follow me because of my weight loss stuff - i’m kinda sorry. i’ve not been posting weigh-ins, because i’ve been maintaining the last few weeks and it frustrates me to keep posting the same thing. so, updates will continue once i start dropping again. (it might be happening soon now that i don’t eat cookies on a daily basis.. cough cough)
weigh-in number twenty one.
hi. sorry, i forgot to update on monday/tuesday.
wellllll, considering all the garbage i’ve been eating, thanks to the holidays, i haven’t lost anything. but i’m not complaining. :)
sorry for such a short post… i’ve got to get back to sewing! but i would love to mention WW’s new barcode scanning app. it is AWESOME. get it. now.
weigh-in number twenty.
i lost another pound! :D this is great.
Total WW Weight Loss: 16lbs
Total Weight Loss: 21lbs
weigh-in number nineteen.
guess what, tumblr?! i’m over my plateau! i’ve lost FOUR pounds since last weigh-in! i think it has something to do with my new lower number of daily points, but i’m not complaining. i re-weighed myself 6 times this morning to make sure i wasn’t seeing things. :) yay me!
Total WW Weight Loss: 15lbs
Total Weight Loss: 20lbs
i realized that i missed a weigh-in or few… so uh, we’ll just pretend i’m at 19. k? k. :)
weigh-in number eighteen.
so, i haven’t stuck to WW in the last week and a half. school is stressing me the fuck out. life is pissing me off. emo complaint. emo complaint. emo complaint.
i did weigh myself today, and there was no change. i need to get my shit together. i also need a boyfriend, but that is another issue for another time. wah.
on an uplifting note, a few ladies at work started WW because of my awesome progress. they are looking great. hopefully i wont let anyone down!
