Urban rebounder

Just bought this.... very excited about it!!

click here!!!!

Oh CRAP.....

I gained a pound.... How the hell am I going to get thru this??? I have to figure this out..

do I want to be on BP meds? No

do I want to weight this much? No

I was suppose to have been at 16 lbs lost and I'm only 1/2 way there. I have got to step it up, stay on track and find a way to continue.

Why don't I think I'm important?

Why do I put food as more important than me?

You were thinner once... why can't you just go back to that?

Work out
Listen to Bob
Eat your food

I am so NOT going
in the right direction.

I gained a .06 lbs.

It's hard staying on plan, when we don't have our menus planned out. I still have to cook for everyone, so if they don't know what to eat.. everything gets behind, then I get over hungry and it's never good, but I know it's a excuse. I'm just so tired of it... but apparently not enough to stay on track.

Monday Blues

PhotobucketSo today was weigh in day... It's TOM and I had a little gain..... not bad considering all the water and stuff you retain during the month!!!

It was .2 lbs. My mom gained 1.6 lbs. We just keep trudging along... It's hard to change your life and move forward. I h
ope you all had a nice Mothers day. Photobucket We just went out for a early dinner at a inexpensive place. I ate good, I didn't overeat nor did I have anything bad!!!

My mom gave me $50 dollars.. I'm going to go buy a new workout video!!!


It combines cardio and strength training. I can kill 2 birds with one stone and workout less time. I just need a little kick start!!!Photobucket

I went back to work today. It wasn't too bad. I've got to go now.. I'm getting up as soon as James leaves, which is 3:30 AM!


thanks D!!

Walk and Pictures

I just got back from our walk. We went and took the dog also. It was a nice walk. I'm a little anxious going and walking. James and Stephanie were with me, so it was good.

I also ate on plan today!! I hope that this will keep me on track. We plan on walking to our nearby track and walk it tomorrow. We couldn't today, cause we had the dog. But I plan on walking at least 2 times around the track.

We are suppose to walk 10,000 steps.. that is close to 5 miles. I was doing 2 miles on the treadmill, so I figure I'll be able to do more at the tra
ck as I slowly jump/walk back into working out.

I also tried to figure out how to inspire or encourage myself.... I think I found a way... I went searching for some pictures of me when I was thinner...

1990 in my kitchen

I had to go to 1990!!

here are some old pics that I hope to use to inspire me to continue to stay on plan and focused.

Thanks D!!!

Weigh in and the Carnival

Well, I gained .4 lbs. This will stop today!!! It's too early in the game to be playing these games. I promise myself that I will not go off my diet this week. On a great note... my mom lost 2.4 lbs!!! Way to go mom!!!

My mom has lost a total of 9.4 lbs and I've lost 6.3.. A little friendly competition will inspire me to do well this week!!

We went to our local church's carnival yesterday. I thought I would share some photos, from my phone.

The monkey cages.. that I refuse to go on with James.. He makes those things SPIN!!!!!
James and Christopher waiting to get on!! He had fun with his dad!

and the whipper...

My wonderful hubby won me this!! In case you don't know what this stuffed animal is he is from Kung Fu Panda. He is sooooo cute!!! I was very excited when my hubby won this for me!! You know, it is the little things!!

I haven't seen it yet... of course I went to look for it and one of my kids must have it in their rooms... they are teenagers... I won't go look in their room... EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW... anyway Stephanie won 2 items at the games..

We had a nice time.. It was a beautiful
Sunny day here in Southern California. My kind of weather!! It makes me happy.

Today, I have to vacuum my house and then when James gets home, we are going to work out! Have a nice day!
