Weight Loss: Ever punish yourself?

Thursday night, I punished myself.  I worked out hard before bed after all day long procrastinating.  Not going to happen.  I want this change.  My motivation is going to kick the crud out of this unhealthy body if it's the last thing I do!  Looking to even joining up with a friend's fitness group this Saturday!  She mentioned there's going to be a nutritionist and a personal trainer.  I've been hearing her talk about the group for about 2 months now.  I think it's time I stop dragging my feet.  It's support, more motivation and accountability.

Weight:  ERROR  lbs  Today (That's right.  Error.  No matter what I do or where I put it, the scale seems to have kicked the bucket)

Measurements:  14.25" neck, 37.5" waist, 45.5" hips


Highest weigh-in to date:  243.5 lbs on 3/11/2008 (The day I went in to labor with Aiden)

Weight goal:  134 lbs (Last seen in High School when I was running and watching what I ate)


  • Blogilates!  I've moved myself up to some of her regular videos.  I really have loved the burn from each one so far but here's just a few I've been doing in case you want to join in with me!  POP Pilates: Labor Day WorkoutAbs All Night Challenge and POP Pilates: Saddlebag Shaver  OH!  And the arm challenge...done that one a bunch and all I can say is OW!!!
  • I also watched her joint video with Davey Wavey Fitness.  He talked about a 80/20 food rule.  80% of the time eat the healthy foods and 20% of the time indulge a little.  You need a balance in order to make it work.  Finally!  Someone talking my language!  I need that little bit every now and then.  It keeps me going on changing this from a diet to a lifestyle change.
  • Too much on her plate's Step 4: inner critic & Step 5: support.  I think I have been doing pretty well with this.  I actually defeated my inner critic to force myself into a late night workout.  That bossy voice was trying to tell me that it was too late and I missed my chance.  No!  I call the rules!
