Weight loss update!

My official weight loss log in in is Friday. But, I had weighed myself on Monday morning and lost two pounds. That is probably due to water though and not actual pounds, but I’ll take what I can get. ^^;

I hit the gym Monday and due to having to do an online class on my phone wound up with thirty minutes on the treadmill. I had done twenty minutes on the elliptical. That means I had a total of fifty minutes of gym time on Monday. I was going to go again yesterday and just walk on the treadmill, but I was too tired and I decided to keep it to three days a week as planned. Because you can go through a burn out when you start up a new exercise habit. All though I want to keep Friday open for other stuff so I might also hit the gym tomorrow as well. We all know I’ll tell myself I’ll go Saturday early in the morning, but I never do because that habit got broken. This I need to rectify as soon as possible because I miss my early morning runs on Saturday. I want to get in my three workout days during the week and if I feel like another and getting up 6am for it on a Saturday then I should do it.

I want to lost twenty pounds before July 4th and I am going to stick to this goal. I am going on another trip vacation to L.A. with my boyfriend for a convention, and I heard the space is even bigger than the convention I just went to in Anaheim. I want to be in tip top shape for walking around and hopefully having lots of energy for it. I have been caffeine free for a long while now, because of a medication I take it’s not a good idea. This is going to be really exciting and I’ll try not to ingest any caffeine….but I make no promises. ^^;

 

A new organization tool…

I finally picked up a bullet journal to start my journey of organizing and keeping a record of my life. I’ve been wanting to try this type of journal for a long while, but I didn’t know exactly what it was or how to use it. I tried looking on the internet about tutorials and example, but they were confusing and alien to me. A class mate of mine has a bullet journal and she showed me how she uses it. Basically you put any freaking thing you want in it and each month or each week doesn’t have to have the same order of a schedule either. I think I am going to like this. You know instead of buying planners and journals that have set ways of what you should write and stuff. Everything can be into one and I don’t have to have so many paper books. I still will have paper journals because I love collecting journals (even if I don’t get to use them. I know I’m weird.) and I do use them, I just need to start writing down my thoughts everyday so that they can get used. So, hopefully this works out and I can make it all pretty and stuff. lolz ^^;;

It’s almost Halloween time…

Tomorrow is Halloween and I have the pleasure of doling out sugary treats among the masses to little humans dressed up as imaginary and fictitious characters. Hopefully I myself do not slip into a sugary coma myself because a diabetic coma would not be good. After Halloween I want to lose 11 pounds by November 18th and I think I can do that. I’m all gung ho about this because I need to fit into my old pair of jeans for a cosplay for a convention that weekend.

Anyway, the bigger plan for Halloween night is to also watch scary thrillers and Halloween themed movies while gorging on air popped popcorn drizzled in melted butter. I learned my lesson last year not to be pre-occupied by gaming because it was a hassle to keep getting up and down from my game cave to the front door. This wasn’t a physical challenge as it was more a hearing challenge. I couldn’t hear the door bell from my game cave. I want to dress up as something when I answer the door, but I figure I don’t want to because I am lazy. If I was going to a Halloween party then that is a different story.

I hope everyone’s Halloween night is fun and exciting. Make sure to make smart choices and be safe.

Lost three pounds!

I lost three pounds this past week because I walked three times around a park for a thing. I was in garb and sprayed myself a lot with anti-sun lotion spray and still managed to get burned. I was a crispy critter spliced with being cooked like eggs and bacon. I think my brain is still over done. I want bacon now…

I also learned that day that I bought one fairground food and it was the cinnamon and sugar covered almonds. I only had eight almonds and my sugar sky rocketed, but thanks to all that walking it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. But, now I have to give up my nuts at fair now…  TT__TT

I lost my track of thought.

…Bacon.

Th bacon calls to me. Oh yeah the sun tried to kill me, but I still have a pulse. My brain might have taken a hit though.

I’m seriously considering getting myself some bacon after work today. Because bacon is awesome and we should make a bacon based religion because that would be cool.

HUZZAH!

 

I’m so tired.

 

 

 

 

Buffets should be avoided

Bad news…I went to a buffet for dinner last night. The good news is that I did not have three or more plates full of food. I realized I can not eat like I could at a buffet like before. It was one plateful of food and I felt really full. I also had some diet coke because my medicine was making me sick to my stomach. But, once I was eating and sipping the diet coke it got better.

And today I feel like my body is in safe mode. I woke up this morning with cold sweats. I have done this before on occasion. I think the mountain hike yesterday afternoon was a bit much and not because of the walk, but because of the slight altitude change. That could have done something maybe?  I roughly enjoyed the hike more so because it was a paved trail, but going back was uphill and I wanted to get to the car faster so I over exerted myself by walking faster. I was not alone because I had a couple of friends with me so no worries. It was a mile mountain trail hike with stuff to read along the way telling you about the trail. It was amazingly quiet up there until other hikers were walking up the walkway.

All in all it was a nice day trip in the late afternoon. I start training at the gym again today after work. Wish me luck! 🙂

 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy of happiest drinking days! lolz

Although, I am not a drinker, but I still revel in the corn beef, potatoes, and cabbage. I am going over to my brother’s place because he’s cooking. I have not had these foods in a long time. In my family on my mother’s side we are a little Irish along with German, and mostly Italian. On my dad’s side is German, Irish, Austrian, and mostly English. So if you are a math wiz you can figure out how much Irish I am. ^_^;

I will start my new diet on Saturday if I can form a good plan by tomorrow. But, it might not happen until Monday because currently I am under the weather (nothing catching). It involves craving chocolate. These feelings too shall pass.

I hope everyone has a blessed day today and be safe and do not do anything too stupid. 🙂
