I am being so bad. =(

And it's showing. Ugh. This is going to be a short blog. I need to gather my thoughts and put it all down, I just don't have time right now. But I need to make time. Anyway, weigh in this morning:


Ugh. That is UP 1.6. Ugh. Ugh Ugh! And this weekend is Memorial Day. We are going camping. I'm usually ok when we go camping. I'm usually so busy running after the kids that I don't gain weight. But I know I'm bringing snacks, my friends are bringing snacks and there will be a LOT of munching going on. I am going to work out though while I am there. There is no reason why I can't go for a good walk around the campground. No excuses! And starting June 1st, I am reading to bring it. I will be starting my p90x videos finally. I'm debating on doing the nurition part too. I haven't had a chance to read the books but plan to this weekend. Wish me luck!

Weighing In - Wednesday

It's so weird for me to be weighing in on Wednesdays. For so long, I have weighed in on Monday's. That's how it's been. Probably for  5 years now! Wow! Such a departure. LOL! So I almost forget to WI. LOL! But I did remember and I wasn't too dissapointed. Drum roll:


That would be a loss of 1.4. And again. I wasn't stellar this week. You'd think that would draw me into wanting to be stellar and eating healthier. But um, no. I had a donut for breakfast again. UGH! I really need to get AWAY from that. I think I will start walking to the 1st floor from now. That way I CAN NOT go by the snack bar. I cannot buy a donut. Work? I hope so.

I did 177 minutes of exercise last week. Should have and could have been much better but I'm working on it! I actually got out and ran yesterday! Go me! I did 4/1 run/walk intervals for 30 mins. Ended up doing about 3 miles in 45 mins. Not too bad since that included 10 mins of my cool down and warm up walking. =) I'll take it. And I'm getting out there and running again tonight. ;) Now to just start eating healthier. :sigh:

So why not be a good girl and get back in the groove of things? Sounds good to me! I'm ready to kick butt. I'm ready to lose this weight. And I'm tired of being tired. Well, I may be tired at first but it'll help me in the long run. And my dh was so awesome and text me today that I AM working out tonight. ;) Woo hoo!! That means I won't have to feel guilty for leaving even if the kids are still up. =) Well, I'll still feel guilty but hey. I'm going to go exercise!

Found out yesterday that my SIL is doing P90X. Has been for about 9 weeks now. Hmm. I'll have to catch up with her now. LOL! But I want to run too so I'll just have to switch off and on. She says she hasn't lost any weight but has lost inches so not bad I guess.

I'm also going to be doing the stairs at work every morning. Here's a picture:

Pretty bad picture but I think you get the idea. There are 105 stairs to walk up. Eek. But I feel it in my legs. =) I'm also taking a picture of everything I eat and posting at Tweet What You Eat. It's pretty cool so far and I'm hoping that if I have to post it for the world to see, it'll make me think twice about eating it. Probably not but it can't hurt right?? =D

I'm ready to start rocking and rolling. My pants are getting too tight and I sure do not want to go shopping. It's coming up on Summer time and I want to look decent. I don't want to look like a cow. I want to be able to play with my kids outside and not say mommy's tired let me rest. I want my son to start running with me. And I want the twins to also when they get older. I just need to keep these things in mind when I want to go off track. I am going to hold myself accountable. I am going to make it!!

Wednesday WI

Well today was my first WI for the LHA challenge. I guess I didn't do so bad. =) I WI'd at 169.2 lbs. That is a 2 lb loss. Yeah! And I didn't even do that much. Think of what I could do if i really really tried!!! So I have LOTS I can work on over the next 15 weeks. But the first week wasn't too bad. I didn't do that great with the exercise this week. I did not exercise last night. I just felt lazy. UGH! Oh well. I just need to figure out how to fit it all in.

It's Monday

And we are halfway through the LHA Week one challenge. =) How am I doing? Ok. I've gotten exercise in every day except for Saturday. And that's ok. Is it as much as i was hoping? No. But it's a start. I also went out and partied quite a bit this weekend so I'm sure I'll be paying for it. Although I was a little sick afterwards and couldn't eat so maybe that was a good thing? LOL! ;) Anyway, I'm finally ready. I'm really finally ready to do this.

Oh My God! It is not pretty. How did I let myself get to this point again? Ugh. Here is the sad sad truth:

Beginning Weight: 171.2

My Long Hot Active Summer Challenge

Woo Hoo! It starts tomorrow!! Am I ready for it? Not really LOL! I have been slacking off so bad! Bad Heather. But I need something to jumpstart me back into a healthy lifestyle again and why can't it be exercise right?? So here is a recap of my goals for the challenge.

1. Work out 6 out of 7 days a week. (So a total of 96 days. This does not have to be each week but I can't miss more than 16 days).

2. Have a total of 6,000 minutes of exercise. (That is roughly 54 mins of exercise PER day).
Stay tuned as I keep track of everything. And I switched my WI days to Wednesday to coincide with the LHA challenge. I figured I needed something different to get me back into the groove so why not. =) So follow me for the next 16 weeks and let's see my progress and how I do. =)
Tomorrow - Picture of WI and full body shot!!
By the way, it's not too late. Go over there and sign up NOW!!! Join me!!!!
