Kicking my own butt~

Today I weighed in and stayed the same again this week. I have to get my act together. I can feel myself slipping. I don't know what is wrong with me.

The past two weeks I haven't eaten in the first couple of hours after waking. I just get ready for work and once there have a coffee. Its something I know is wrong and somehow I just do it.

I know I haven't been eating right because for me I need to eat every couple of hours to boost my metabolism but I just don't have the motivation or something.

I want to feel good trying to find my wedding dress so for the next 24 days I have to really kick it into overdrive and make good decisions.

I vow right here and now to do my best to eat every few hours, stock the house with lots of healthy food and eat breakfast :)

This past week has been a blur and then the weekend sorta sucked. We went to Cole's parents place on Thursday for his fathers birthday. It was a little normal, haha. Got home later than usual and had to make stuff for Cole's bosses party at work. Hardly got any sleep.

I didn't weigh myself because I slept through my alarm and was running late. Friday I eat flex points with my friend from work so I have forgone my weigh in til next Friday.

Friday night we went in for overtime and I had an upset tummy all night. Must be a touch of the stomach flu or something.

I lazed around all day on Saturday and on Sunday I made the rest of my place cards for the wedding. So far we have 13 people booked at the resort for the wedding. Not too bad. Many more are saying maybe.

We go on vacation in three weeks and are going to the black Friday sales and to get my wedding dress, so excited!!!

Staying the same-this week :)

I weighed in and stayed the same this week. I wasn't surprised. This week was weird.

I only got to two classes because I was having a tooth/ear ache thing on Wednesday and Thursday I had my appointment with my credit counsellor.

This week is so different because Cole finally got on a day shift with me. He had a really hard time Monday/Tuesday but I think he's finally getting into the swing of things and he's gonna be pumped to get off work early today and then have until Monday morning.

Have to catch up on my other blogs now that I'm getting used to Cole being around-haha.

I was so frightened to weigh myself today. I did everything right. I did four aerobic classes, walked on my breaks at work, ate my correct points, etc. Bam..... I lost 2.5 pds. I'm totally stoked. My hard work paid off. Though it wasn't really that hard. I'm loving the classes so much that I look forward to them and do anything not to miss them. That is, apparently, the key for me.

I need to exercise to drop good numbers but I need to enjoy my exercise to stick to it. Thank God I joined the gym!

We are both going in for overtime tonight and we are working on Thanksgiving too to get the holiday pay. Its hard working so much but will be totally worth it to buy lots of new clothes on black Friday. Can't wait.

I'm just so happy to have lost that weight you don't even know. I told Cole yesterday if I didn't lose this week that I was going to donate my body to science so they could research how someone can do everything right and still not lose-haha.

Have a great weekend~

Woo hoo~

Just a quick post to let you all know I'm feeling better.

I also wanted to let you know about a few things I just started noticing about my weight loss:

  • I am now able to fit into some of my old clothing that was always too small before
  • I lost almost an inch around my ankle-noticed this with my ankle bracelet
  • Am now able to go in another loop on my bra

How exciting is that???

Seeing red~

Yesterday was a really bad day. I got home from work and Mom called to say my brother and family will not be going to the wedding.

The reason is that my niece has allergies to peanuts and stuff. I'm just super disappointed and really a little pissed.

Of course I totally understand the allergy thing but all along it was can't wait to go and we'll have to see what they do about allergies, etc.

So we finally book the day before yesterday and now they can't go. Maybe if they had told me beforehand I would have changed my mind.

Also my mother and husband have all these medical bills and stuff and are now moving back to Canada but they will now be even farther away from me than before.

For the last year or so we had it all worked out that Mom & I would pick out my dress in New Hampshire. So now she is moving to Canada this month. Since we have known, about two months, we (me and Cole) have been rearranging plans.

We figured that Cole would drive the 8 hours to pick her up, drive back the 8 hours the next day or so later we would drive to New Hampshire and stay 4 nights-with us paying for everything.

So now Mom says I don't know if I will be able to go since we will have just moved. You wanted me to help pick out your wedding dress is that it? Like it was the first time hearing it.

I'm seeing red right now. We should have just eloped. So I guess I will pick out my dress by myself and walk myself down the aisle-nice.

Well yesterday instead of just getting mad and eating-I went to my step aerobics and worked out my aggression-something I wouldn't have done in the past and then I came home, had supper, and went to sleep~

Planning done~

Well people here we are into another week. Its crazy how fast the time is going.

Cole & I have finally finalized our wedding plans and picked a resort. Its the Bavaro Princess All Suites Spa & Casino in Punta Cana.

We are beyond excited and we are finally feeling a bunch of the stress leaving us. I was feeling stress because people wanted to know where, when, etc.

Then we make this decision and everyone is saying omg I can't believe we have to decide now and need to make a deposit, etc. People (our families) are just crazy its really hard to take. We told them over a year ago to save and now some of them haven't.

But either way we are going to have an awesome time-can't wait.

I haven't let my weight gain discourage me and I did my Body Combat yesterday and today is Body Step-so love it~

I gained 3 pounds. I didn't know what my body would do after the detox but I had no idea it would do this.

I take comfort in the fact that I feel so good. I'm on my period too so maybe that is in the weight gain too.

I'm continuing with the working out and will see where it leads. Do you think I should eat any activity points? I don't but am wondering if I should.
