Up to 221.8lbs. AF is here and I did a grueling couple workouts (kettle bell!) and am crazy sore. The scale hates me. Starting the Primal 21-day Challenge today for the remainder of this challenge. Hope it helps!!!

I hear ya on being discouraged. If you look at the chart, you'll see I stay pretty much the same from week to week. And I have a LOT to lose but also have thyroid issues. I've been told however two things: Intermittent Fasting and/or Sprints can help. Try it! Mark's Daily Apple is a great source for info on those two things.

Hey there ladies!  Only 2 weeks left... This challenge is going fast..  I am so proud and inspired by y'all.  Eating better and exercising - doing this the right way to get healthy.  Keep on working toward those goals - it is so worth it to see the changes!  love.gif

147.0 today. i'm back with my low sodium turkey that i get fresh from the deli. over the weekend was my son's b'day party with hot dogs (i ate 1, that was enough) and lots of cake and ice cream. it was a miracle i didn't gain more. i do think that the hot dog is really bad. i always retain water from that...

It is amazing what salt does for water retention.  My little brother who is 21 years old moved in with DH and me so I have been cooking a bit more to feed him too.  Have to keep the focus on exercise and good eating without too much salt.

Eeeek. Only 2 weeks left? I didn't even lose 5 pounds. Boo hoo. I think it's time to go back to Weight Watchers. Or tracking somewhere. Or... I could just get pregnant. Then I won't worry so much about my weight will I? ROTFLMAO.gif

 

 

This has been fun tho... maybe I'll join a 5.0? If there is one... I'd be glad to handle the chart next time around. Congrats ladies and thanks for keeping me accountable for the last 6 weeks! Woo woo!

If y'all decide to do a 5.0, I will be sitting out... but I will join for a 6.0.... I'm only 0.8 lbs from my WW goal. :)  I have to maintain for 6 weeks... then I have an additional 16 - 18 lbs that I'd like to kiss goodbye to.

This has been really great incentive and motivation for me! Just what I've needed. I'm totally in for 5.0, if someone else is willing to be in charge. I am barely handling everything I have on my plate already. lol

Tillymonster - you are welcome to take over the chart next time - I have been doing it since version 2.0 and I could use a break from charting. :)

 

I need your motivational advice, ladies!!  I have been gaining and loosing the same 5 to 7 pounds for the last several months, and sitting at the same weight for the last 3 weeks.  It is driving me crazy!  I still have about 50 pounds to loose to get to my healthy weight and I am dealing with some serious burnout on this whole situation.  I REALLY want to be as close to my goal weight as possible by January because I will be having surgery and I want to reduce my anesthetic risk as much as possible by being in a healthy weight range.  So I don't want to just not worry about it for a while and come back at this later.  I have a husband who is VERY supportive, but works crazy hours (it has been 14+ hour shifts, rotating between days and nights this month, and will continue to change often - the military is consistantly inconsistant in their scheduling practices, and his division is undermaned).  I have a 3.5 year old doing homeschool-preschool, and a 20 month old, both home full time.  The budget has no room for extras like the gym or babysitters, so I wake up at 5:30 and work out in my garage (I have an treadmill and a stationary bike) and I try to get in a real road run for my long run days, as hubby's schedule allows.  I am eating a whole foods based diet, with good portion control.  I am still breastfeeding, and plan to continue until dd is 2.

 

Here is my current workout schedule: Mondays = bike 8 miles, Tuesday = run 3 miles, Wednesdays = bike 8 miles + free weights, Thursdays = run 3 miles, Friday = Off, Saturday = 4 miles, road run, Sunday = Free weights

 

I can't see fitting in more workouts at this stage of my life. I plan on homeschooling my kids through 8th grade so I will have kids in the equation for the next decade or so. How do you balence your health with your real life demands on your time?  How do you stay motivated when you are stuck?  How do you get you weight moving again?

 

I would love any insight you can provide!!!!

Oh mama! You have so much on your plate right now.  hug2.gif  my suggestion is multifaceted...

1. alternate days of cardio with days of weight training. You don't need huge weights either: high reps of lower weights can be very effective when done with high intensity.

2. if you aren't already, incorporate body weight exercises: push ups, tricep dips, bear walk, crab walk, duck walk, chin ups, plank.  They don't take long and you can involve your kids by making it a contest.  You can also do these at the park on picnic tables and playground equipment.

3. walk backward on your treadmill instead of forward - it creates muscle confusion and helps with increasing the calorie burn.

4. give yourself permission to have one day each week where you can have a true splurge - something that you wouldn't normally have.  I've found that when I get stuck with the loss, that sometimes a splurge kicks things back into gear - its like my body is freaking out over the tight control and needs to know that there is food available.

5. never hesitate to come here for support!  We get that this is hard. Sometimes the bounce sucks.  But we will listen and sometimes, that is enough.

 

Balance between fitness and all the other demands on my time is not simple... just remember that fitness is part of your real life. I schedule my exercise in (sounds like you do too!) otherwise it doesn't happen.  My motivation has changed over the last 8 months... I've gone through wanting to be able to run a specific distance, to be able to do chin ups, to do a triathlon, to looking better in a swimsuit than my sister (who's voice, BTW, is the nasty voice at the back of my head telling me that I'm a failure) who has never had weight issues, to having a freaking awesome back (see pictures below!), to being able to shop in any store I wanted to, to being able to chase my kids on the playground equipment and not get stuck in the tubes, to improving my odds at getting a job I want, and last but definitely not least... my workouts are my anger management and therapy tool.  i am a much happier person (wife, mother, teacher, friend, human) when I get my daily exercise in.  I can take my frustrations out on the bike, the treadmill, the battle ropes, the kettlebell, and just blow it all away.  I see my exercise as a means to make life better for not just me but also the people around me that matter most. (and believe me, I've got my own crazy list of challenges right now)

 

This was taken in early May...

 

 This was taken about a week ago.

 

I started this journey in January, with a simple premise... be nice to myself.  I'm down about 70 lbs since then. I still have bad days, but they are tempered by the knowledge that I've made it this far. Sometimes it pays to look back and see how far you've come and remember that if you've made it this far, you can do the rest of it too. 

 

Sorry for the novel.  But I hope it helps you.  Blessings on you mama as you make the journey to a healthier, happier you.

I would love to keep on this challenging each other.  It has been good for me even with a little bit at a time that I lose.  Tilly, if you would be willing to handle the chart, I am cool with that.  Sounds like barefootmama is ready for a little break.

 

On the exercise front, barefootmama, your scheduling into your day is key.  Is there maybe another local mama or two that you could trade watching kids so the other one could have some time to do exercise or whatever with a free hour ? On the food front, you may want to mix up what you eat with a little bit more fat every now and then to make sure you body doesn't think you are just going into starvation mode.

 

I really like dmitrizmom's idea of "if you aren't already, incorporate body weight exercises: push ups, tricep dips, bear walk, crab walk, duck walk, chin ups, plank.  They don't take long and you can involve your kids by making it a contest.  You can also do these at the park on picnic tables and playground equipment."  I think I need to incorporate this into my plan as well.

You look great mama!  Kudos on your progress!

I did my last running event for the summer...  a half marathon!  Kids/hubby and my mom were there and my 4 year old ran across the finish line with me!  joy.gif

That was great!  Now I'm excited about switching up my workouts a little!

Have a great week everyone!

Dmitrizmom - Thanks for your advice and encouragement!!  I will work on encorporating some of the moves you suggested with the kids - they will think that is fun :) I am with you on scheduling workouts and prioritizing them.  That is the only way to make it happen, and I think that is one of the few things I am doing right these days.  I have been very consistent with accomplishing my workouts since april (the workouts themselves have changed over time).  I think increasing my strenght training by adding in some extra moves throughout the day would be helpful.

 

I did my 5K yesterday and it was really great to be around other runners.  I really want to improve my time next time around (I did it in 35 min and I would like to get to a 30 min of less 5K), so I have been looking at ways to improve speed and excersizes that help with improving running speed/efficiency.

 

I think a lot my my issue of late has been mental/attitude related.  I was really excited about what I was doing when I could see little bits of progress here and there, but now I am seeing no progress and it leaves me asking myself what is the point of working so hard  . . . Intellectually I do know that I am healthier for my hard work even if I am still fat, and I know that it is worthwhile and that I even ENJOY running.  But the emotional side of me is tired and needs to be recharged - I need a attitude/enthusiasm reboot.  Maybe that sounds odd, but that is where I am at the moment.

 

BTW - your back looks AMAZING!!!!!!!

I am definitely interested if there is a 5.0.  I haven't been very active posting, but just knowing I need to check in each week has kept me squeezing in the exercise into my busy schedule and keeping me in check when I want to stress eat.  I've been bouncing around at my first goal weight, getting down and then gaining two pounds, so I would really like to maintain and start heading to my second goal. 

 

Barefootmama: Congrats on the 5K!  You are doing great!

 

tnh2007: Congrats on the half marathon!!

 

Dmitrizmom: wow!

136.4 again!  Not losing but not gaining either, glad for that. Definitely thought I would have gained this week so I'm actually pretty happy to see the same numbers again.thumb.gif

165.

 

I think I'm ready to start really exercising again.  My abs are still a wreck from pregnancy, so I'll just be doing light work on them, but I'm ready to start running.  DH is also suddenly onboard with calorie counting and Couch to 5k, so I think we'll be working together and keeping each other motivated.  Yay!
