Fatty fatty 2x4

I've put on a lot of weight. Great. This is not awesome. So instead of waiting until Jan. 1st I am getting started today. This morning I had steel cut oatmeal with a few raspberries and a little bit of honey for some sweetness. Now I am going to change into my workout clothes and get busy. Treadmill, Wii fit, and the Biggest Loser.

I also am going to join a gym. I need some help guiding me on how to get my body conditioned to run a marathon. Plus I like all the aerobics classes they offer. June is coming up quick. I mean my little Alexander is almost 6 months old. This is all for him.

I also have given some thought to once I get inshape maybe looking into becoming a personal trainer. What better motivation to keep in shape. I couldn't be all fat and get people in shape y'know? Later on today I am going to clean out our pantry. No more bad foods for us! As always....

Onwards and upwards.

Hello. I don't know what's going on with my body. First I had to stop because out of nowhere my kidneys were acting up. Then my toe got infected (ew.) Now my back is all jacked up.

It saddens me. Not because I haven't been able to exercise to lose weight. It's bothering me that it's November and I have a marathon to run in 7 months. Now I realize that that still is plenty of time. I just had hoped that I would be further a long by now.

Sigh. I have my goal and I will complete. I am thinking of running a 5K around April to see how my progress is going.

My new routine is going to be at least 20 miles a week. That I can do. That's like 2.8 miles a day. I can do that. Plus my Wii fit and Biggest Loser. Look out! Meg is back and ready for action. Well as soon as my back stops aching.

Excuse me while I rant

Dear Body,

*clears throat* *deep breath*

WHY THE FRICK AM I BARELY LOSING ANY WEIGHT?! I am exercising more then I have like ever. For what?! Nothing!!!! You are not nice! I am trying to help you out and make you look good but NOOOOO! You want to fight me. I'm sorry but keep this up and we will no longer be friends. I'm over you.



P.S Onwards and upwards.

So I've been so bad eating so much junk food. I can't seem to kick this fat girl eating habits. It's so darn frustrating! I want so badly to be thin again, yet I keep self sabotaging (sp? Is that even a word?) myself. It's my's what I do.

It doesn't do any good to beat myself up. It's going to take sometime but I can do it!!! I realize that I did just have a baby and I am not rich nor famous so I can't have a personal trainer helping me melt off the weight. It's just me. Plus it took like six years to balloon up to this weight.

More motivation though. I found pictures of me when I was thin. Dang I was a hottie yo! Holla! I'm going to put those pictures of myself on my treadmill to keep me going.

Time for this chubby girl to get some sleep. Not getting proper sleep also contributes to the porkiness. Nite nite.

I'm beat

I was a bad fat girl yesterday. I made chicken broccoli with bow tie pasta and alfredo sauce. Plus I didn't exercise. Oh well.

Today I have done a half hour of Yoga and then half an hour of Belly dancing. I'm not done yet though! I am going to get on the treadmill while I watch GH.

We still have leftovers of the pasta but I'm going to fill up on salad and only have a cup of pasta. Not too bad.

I'm loving fit tv. It's cheaper then joining a gym or buying DVD's! Plus I don't have to worry about day care.

With the exception of when I was younger and going out dancing at clubs every weekend, I don't think I've ever worked out this much. I'm actually pretty proud of myself! Well it's treadmill time.

Onwards and upwards.

Back in the saddle again...

So I have been noticeably absent for a month. I would like to say that even though I've been bad at writing I've been good with my diet and exercise. That would be a lie though.

No I've been indulging in chinese food and have had some drinks.

However today is another day. I'm back to eating healthier and exercising. I only did 20 mins today but that's better then nothing. Like for lunch I had a tuna sandwich on wheat with lots of green lettuce. Dinner will be meat loaf and carrots, broccoli, and salad.

So here I go again. As always...

Onwards and upwards.

Day three

Wahoo!!!! I feel fan-freaking-tastic!!!! I just ran on the treadmill for 43 mins and burned a total of 255 calories. SparkPeople had me scheduled for 30 mins and 226 calories. I just felt so good I kept going until I felt I had had enough. Then I did all my strength training and then stretched. I tell ya there is nothing better then stretching after a long workout. Phew!

Now for a light lunch and then I'm off to the Post Office. Somethings working though. I don't know if it's the healthy eating I've been doing for the past month or so or the working out but I have that "runners high."

I'm all pumped! WAHOO!!!!!!!!

Day two

Eh. I'm lazy today. I'm not going to give in. I am going to do my exercises right after I finish posting.

I am so sore. Lord it's like some serious punishment when you try to get into shape. It's as if your body is saying "This is what you get for not taking care of me. This is for everytime you ate a Big Mac when I wanted steamed veggies. This is for you drinking all that beer instead of water. Yarr!" At least I believe that is what my body would say to me. So my muscles are really sore but I am not going to let that stop me. I can watch an episode of "Coupling" while I walk on the treadmill.

Off to exercise. If I'm still tired afterwards I can take a nap. Assuming Turtle allows me to.

End of day one...

Well it's the end of day one. I ate more calories then I was supposed too, but I am not going to beat myself up. I did more cardio then I was supposed to because I walked to rehearsal on top of walking on the treadmill.

Something strange is happening to me. I enjoy exercise. I have never uttered that in a sentence before. Okay that's not true. I have said things like "People who enjoy exercise are nuts!" I'm becoming one of them. Maybe it's all the granola I've been eating. I'm even contemplating going on a hike. Except I don't have anyone to go with. Plus I don't really do the whole nature thing.

Alright well time for this skinny girl to be to drag herself to bed and watch "Mad Men."

Onwards and Upwards,

True Day One...

So today I have decided is the true day one of my quest in leading a healthy lifestyle. I had my usual "Megg McMuffin" (egg beaters, multi-grain English muffin, slice of cheese & two strips of turkey bacon) and my coffee. For a grand total of 580 calories.

I'm not too worried as I also did my exercises. I walked on the treadmill for half an hour and did 6 different strength exercises. This workout was made a lot easier by having the Netflix queue instantly. I watched two episodes of Coupling.

Lunch will be chicken slices on a bed of spring mix with some ranch dressing. Dinner will probably be tilapia and steamed veggies. Two snacks which will be yogurt with granola (yum) and in the evening air popped popcorn. Also I will have a 100 calorie Klondike Bar for dessert.

Hey this is a lot better then what I normally eat.

Onwards and Upwards,

So I started entering in what I've eaten into Whoa! What a shock to the system that was yesterday! I had like double the amount of calories I was supposed to. Yikes! So now that I see it I'm going to try harder to be better about what I eat. More fruit more veggies.

I need to get a scale. I'm off to the store to buy our food. Then I must come home and excercise!!! I must I must I must!!!!

The first entry...

So I am on a quest like many others to lose this weight. So help me I will be thin again!!!! Currently I am around 190 lbs. My goal is drop about 60 lbs. I think 130 would be a good weight for me.

I have joined and am loving the excercise plan even though I haven't done it. The one thing I don't like is how the meal plan is only for one person. I have to feed two. Plus I love the SoBe (South Beach) meals.

My plan is to try and journal my excercise and diet on a daily basis. We shall see how that goes.

My meals for today have been terrible. A latte and blueberry muffin from Hyperion for breakfast, fish tacos from Soup & Taco for lunch and my left over Singapore Rice Noodles from Fortune Gourmet. Eh...I'm supporting local shops at least!

I will however get on the treadmill after dinner to make up for the bad eating I did. Monday I start back up.

I need to get a really nice pair of running shoes. Plus I need to get serious about my marathon training. So here I go!!!!
