Set Back...

So I went to the doctor today and was told I have a golf ball size cyst and am not supposed to go to the gym. I am still going to go and just ride the bike. I don't want to get out of the habit of going!

As for the cyst I have been referred to another doctor. I think they are going to take it out.

As for the weight loss. I gained this last week. I am coming in at 182. I have not been as active in the gym and have been eating off my diet. I know what I did and can correct it going forward.

I know no one is perfect and people have set backs all the time. I am just going to stay positive and work through mine....not quit.

Here we go.....again....sigh

Ok so yet again I am going to lose weight. I have been at it ,this time, since the end of February. I am happy to report that I am down 7 pounds!

I am eating better and working out. Yes I have joined a gym and even got a personal trainer! It is going great and I love JP, said trainer. I will update this blog at least once a week on my weigh in day, Thursday.

How are the rest of you guys doing?!

Ok here we go...again.

I have been challenged by Jennifer, Tiffany, and Liz to do the following with them and I accepted the challenge!

1. Lose 20 lbs by Christmas... (first Mini Goal: Lose 5 lbs by Labor Day)

2. Log 350 miles on the bike by the end of the year. (first Mini Goal: 60 miles by Labor Day)

3. Be able to run a 5K by the end of the year. (first Mini Goal: be able to run 1 mile without getting winded... by Labor Day)

I can tell you now that the running is going to be very hard for me but I am going to attempt it!

I weighed in today and am at 183. That puts me down 11 pounds since I started this blog! I have not been exercising much and have not lost a lot but I am at least keeping it off!

Ok so today was a bad day. But I need to get better about blogging and I need to be held accountable so here it is.

Breakfast (guessing here)
hash browns=250
breakfast burrito=300


Amy's frozen lunch=330

Peanut Butter crunchy bar=90 (gave blood and had to eat something before they would let me leave.)

Dinner (guessing here too)

Apparently I looked bad after giving blood and they told me to eat a big dinner so I used up the spaghetti stuff.

Total for the day 1980

I am hoping that my dinner count is very high but it is done. Tomorrow is another day...

Liquid Intake
20 ounces Diet Dr Pepper
50 ounces Decaf Tea (counts as water)

Fallen into a rut..

I have fallen into a rut. I have not been in the gym for 3 weeks! I have been so worn out that I just didn't have the energy. But I went to the doctor and they ran blood work. They are helping me in getting all my stuff back in order. :) So I did make it to the gym tonight for about 10 minutes, it is a start. I plan on going tomorrow for a full workout.

As for food...Last week was a bad week. I gained a pound but that is ok. I am getting back on track starting tomorrow. I say that because I have not kept track of my food today.
