I am back I think!!!

Well it has been almost 2 months since I last blogged.  Wow where has that time went???  Well I started college on August 22 and holy cow what was I thinking??  It will be worth it in the end but wow the time involved to get all the studying, assignments, papers and driving done is insane.  I honestly had forgotten about doing my blog and for that I am very sorry!!  It has been insane at our house between my school schedule, the girl's school schedule and then the oldest having volleyball and drama on top of school and the hubby working 2 jobs I usually don't know if I am coming or going.  School is going well so far I believe I have all A's but I know that is not really what you all read my blog for so here is the real update you all want:

When I last blogged I weighed 327 lbs and now I am currently down to 317.8 as of Monday.  So I am down 10 lbs for a total of 29 lbs lost since I started this journey in June.  Not bad but not great for 2 months of weight loss.  However my face book status currently reads:

Where has my will power and good attitude gone??  Will whoever has stolen it please return it???  I would really appreciate it and won't even ask questions if returned soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If anyone has seen either of these items could you please send them home or tell me where they are so I can get them back.  I have been really bad lately about logging food.  Also my only exercise lately is my water aerobics so I need to start logging again and get back to doing some type of exercise every day!!  Also since starting school my water consumption has gone down the drain.  I am constantly drinking pop while in the bad thinking all I really want is water.  I have even quit taking my phentermine!  Why you migh ask?  Well I honestly don't know!!!  I honestly don't know why I have been doing all the bad things I have been doing. 

So please help me to get back on track and get rid of this weight.  My goal was to be under 300 by November 12 but not sure if that can happen now?!?!?!  This makes me sad cuz I had been doing so good.  I hope all of you have been doing better at this weight loss thing and I am hoping that by returning to blogging I will get back on track!!!!!!!

Weigh in

Just wanted to report in this weeks weigh in.  I have lost 0.2 lbs and 3.75 inches this week!!!  Not a lot of weight but inches are good too so can't be disappointed.

IT has been crazy around here.  Trying to get ready for school and for me to start school as well.  Bought my books yesterday and all I can say is Oh S**T!!!  I hope I can do this!!  Not gonna be easy that is for sure!!  Another huge source of stress for me is my oldest starts Jr High this year and that means school sports, plays etc.  I am not ready for my Carebear to be that big!!!  She is looking forward to it though so that is a plus!!  My baby will have a nanny the 2 days a week I am in school.  He has never had a babysitter so not sure how that is going to go either. So many new things happening around my house in the next couple of weeks.  Hoping to not let my focus slide as I adjust to all of it!!

I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty proud of myself at that moment!!  I just finished 4 12 min miles walking with Leslie Sansone and fat buring walking video!!!  Goal for tomorrow is to be able to do the whole video which is 5 miles!!  If not tomorrow than Tuesday!!  I can do this and I will do this!!  Hoping my oldest will do the video with me tomorrow. 

Also in the last 7 days I have done 718 minutes of exercise and burned 5992 calories!!!  And that is without adding any everyday activities like cooking in.  Now just gonna keep it up and keep watching what I eat!!!!

Must be getting old or something

So for the first time in I don't know how long I have been all alone all weekend!!!  The kids are at Gramma & Grampa's and hubby is out of state working.  Been busy deep cleaning my house and doing ALL the laundry.  Well the last load is in the drier, the house is pretty much spotless and I am wondering what to do with myself tomorrow.  The weird part about all of this is normally I would be over at neighbors(they are having an adult birthday party) however I have no desire to be over there or around people.  Not sure why but would just rather not be there.  Maybe because I have worked hard or maybe because I am getting old.  On a positive note I have not sweated this much in like forever.  I have been dripping sweat the last 2 days as I clean my house so hoping I burned some calories and it will show on the scale on Thursday. 

Looking forward to everyone coming home tomorrow although I know by Monday night I will probably be frustrated with the kids but oh well the joys of being a mom, right??

Weekly weigh in and July totals

Just a quick update.  Today I weighed in at 327.2 which is down 3.4 lbs since last week.  And now for July totals.... I am down 7.8 lbs and 6.75 inches since July 1.  Not too bad but not great either.  I do believe it will be time to get new pants soon since all but 2.25 of those inches are off of my hips, waist, and thighs.  School starts this month for me and the kids so things are about to get crazy but I am going to keep losing!!!

Also am super excited that my water aerobics instructor has agreed to come in at 6 a.m. instead of 7 a.m. Mon Wed Fri for me and a couple of other ladies so that we can continue with our water aerobics.  This means I can keep doing my water aerobics and add daily walks to it!!

Wow it has been crazy!!!

It has been crazy busy at my house lately.  Had a garage sale yesterday and today so have been busy all week getting ready for it.  I considered it a huge success and anything leftover is being donated. 

The bad news is Thursday I posted a gain of almost 3 lbs.  Not sure why since I have continued to exercise and have stayed under my calories.  I am wondering if it is the new scale??  I guess we will see at next week weigh ins.  I was not happy with my self Thursday and I almost gave up but didn't and am happy to say that I didn't give up.  Usually that would have been enough for me to be frustrated and throw in the towel.

Sorry this is so short but I have to get my new goddaughter's book sewed together and packed so we can head to SD for her baptism tomorrow.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gotta get moving!!!

Wow I am exhausted!!  Had water aerobics this morning.  Came home spent time with the kids and sorted stuff for the garage sale this weekend.  This evening took the kids to the pool for 2 hrs.  Let me just tell you walking, running, jumping in the water with a 36 lb. toddler is hard work!!  I needed the extra work out I am sure but holy cow are my arms are tired.  To top if off if I wasn't swimming with my son I was swimming laps freestyle.  It feels good to have been so active tomorrow but I am ready for bed!!

So I had a moment of insanity yesterday and committed to a challenge.  I committed to being under 300 by August 31.  Umm yeah not sure about this.  That is almost 30 lbs in a month.  I am gonna push hard watch what I eat and work out more and hopefully Sept 1 I can report that I made it.  I don't care if it is 299.99 as long as that first # is a 2!!!  I can do this!!!
