Lack of… well everything

Yeah I have Monday and Tuesday off from this lovely job of mine! Monday I am running errands and hope to clean the house. Tuesday I hope to hit the gym either for a couple hours or at least twice. Might see if I can drop in on my trainer’s class at noon. I wish I didn’t have to work then I could go to her class everyday. Oh well I can’t have everything.

I stepped on the scale Saturday and I think I fainted. I am back to where I started Jan1. I again am wasting time. Should I be shocked by this?!? Nope not one bit. I either exercise well or eat well but never both. So I have 2 apps for my iTouch now. One is Sparkpeople the other is called losing it. Why two you ask? Well Spark you have to have WiFi to use it but Lose It you don’t. So if I am at a place where I don’t have WiFi I can still look up calories. So I have no excuses right? Log food period!

I kinda feel I am letting my Mamavation Sistah’s down by, what it feels like, sitting here and doing nothing about my weight. I love giving support and can’t for the life of me figure out why I can’t support myself.  I hope my light bulb goes off one day before I hit 400lbs.

I hope all my Sistah’s have a fantastic week.

What I accomplished this week”

  • Drank water. I slacked at the end of the week but I did get my goal of 70oz per day on average.
  • Went to the gym.. while I only made it twice I did do lots of walking shopping.

Goal for next week:

  • Stay within my calories

That is right I only have one goal. I mean this shouldn’t be brain surgery in the slightest. I am allotted xxxx calories I should be able to count what I eat and stay within them. I seem to have lost that concept. While I will still strive for the gym this week, my main focus has to be food. That is 85% of losing weight. I mean who works out hard for an hour to go eat McDonald’s on the way home. (yes  I have done that before)

I feel like I am letting my Mamavation Sista’s down by just sitting here and doing nothing. I love to support everyone  but why in the world can’t I support myself? I hope one day I figure that out before I am 400lbs.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week.

  1. The only one you are letting down is yourself. Don’t feel pressured on our behalf. What is going on with your diet and that calorie range? Diet is a larger portion of your results than exercise. Are you planning for enough calories or enough of the right things? Plan, plan, plan and be very strict with yourself during your two days off to see how that works. Good luck!

  2. Thanks Kia.. Yeah planning is not something I am good at. I am going to focus this week on staying within those calories. I beleive I get 1700 per day which should be more than enough. I need to stop eating out. Not only do I save money I save calories.

  3. I’m going to co~sign what Kia said, this is about you. We are here to offer you support and help you to meet your goals. Don’t think that you are letting us down when you stumble, we all fall down. Just remember to brush yourself off and start all over again. We will always be here for you.

  4. I am a lot like you. I like to beat myself up over things. Luckily, the sistahood is showing me this does no good but bring me further down. I do not want to do this, I want to be a positive, healthy person. With the great support system we have here in the sistahood I know we can do this! Baby steps! We can do this together!

  5. I was just talking to one of my close friends who seems to have the same problem…She even said to me that she realizes that you have to have the diet and exercise together to be successful. Easier said than done…just read my post. I was the same way this week. Dont feel like you let anyone down…that is why we are all here to show support. It is hard when you know you dont want to eat that, or you need to get up and get moving…your head is telling you to do that…but for some reason we do the opposite. Just keep trying and dont give up!!!

  6. The ONLY way you’ll ever let us down is if you quit. And I KNOW you’re not going to do that! You’ve got it right- focus on one goal at a time. Give yourself 21 days to make that a habit, then add another goal.

    You CAN DO THIS, Karla!! Believing in you!

  7. Karla, I believe in you! I agree with Heather – pick one goal, focus, get it under your belt, make it your reality and move onto the next goals. Baby steps will get you there! Stay focused on your end game and purpose. Whenever you stumble remind yourself WHY your goal is important to you. And we’ll remind you that you’re important to us! Have a GREAT week!

  8. Why does it have to be so hard? But you’re right… it takes diet AND exercise. Sounds like you’re wanting to get things on track this week and I’ve got your back! Good luck!

  9. I have the same problems hence why I’ve been a yo-yo dieter for years and have tried everything under the sun. However, that just means we aren’t quitters as at least we try. If fail and try again, we can say we tried. I always get sheepish telling my family I’m on mission to lose weight since it’s the 778th time but one of these times, it will kick in. I’m hoping since joining the Sistahood, it will keep me inspired.

    Happy Mamavation Monday!

  10. I know what you mean when you said that you can support all of us but can’t support yourself. Im the exact same way. ((hugs)) We can do this for ourselves b/c we ARE worth it.

  11. This is what I think. I used to do that all the time. I would exercise and then eat too much. Like I would sabotage my own work or something. I think what would work for you is a plan. Like join Weight Watchers and weigh in every week.

    Also, sit down and think long and hard about why you are doing this. If it’s for you, it might not be something you can focus on all the time. If it’s about your kids and family, it might be easier to get motivation for throughout the day. When I lost all that weight I was constantly thinking about the kids.
