Life changes

It's been 2 weeks. I know, I know!

Things were going great. Losing weight, tracking food, keeping track! I headed to Pittsburgh last weekend (Friday April 20th) and my goal was to just enjoy myself with the new friends I would make. They had scheduled a Trolly Tour of Pittsburgh and a Cardinal's Baseball game. The training was for the Air & Waste Management Association, a volunteer organization that I am part of here in St. Louis.

Things didn't turn out the way planned. To keep this short, to the point, because it's a weight loss blog... Jason's mom passed away Saturday afternoon. It was very sudden. She'd been kinda ill during the week and either she had kidney failure or she was so dehydrated it led to kidney failure. The kidney failure raised her potassium level which wound up stopping her heart. She wasn't able to recover from that.

It's been a rough couple days -- and well, diet wise, just awful. Running around today and yesterday - no clue even how to get back on track. Today I had McDonald's breakfast, a Hershey bar, Jimmy Johns unwhich, half a butter braid, and large pickle. And I'm sure I'll eat something else yet.

I plan to work tomorrow and Thursday, and will most likely take off Friday and Monday. I had to cancel my personal training this week, and as exhausted as I am right now, it was the right decision. I am going to try and eat well tomorrow. I'm not sure what is even in my fridge to eat.

.....and....the WW wagon slowed down and picked me up

I needed a kick in the ass.

It happened.

I'll be honest, there was not on particular item that made me want to change. Just some little things ramping up at once. Wednesday was some sort of sugary dessert that I ate too much of and had a nasty upset stomach. Eating dirty makes me feel like crap. In general, I feel like crap. I know everything I am supposed to do. I have every single tool at my disposal.

So yesterday I signed up for online WeightWatchers. And I'm going to stick to it. I know the program works, as long as I follow it!.

So here we go!

P.S. 80 days until the wedding!

Motivate Me!

I don't even remember what I've done in the past 10 days. Just super busy with wedding stuff. With less than 100 days left, I'm in the prime "GET IT PLANNED" steps.

We mailed out wedding invitations, we've already started to get back RSVPs!! It makes it super real. We even got a gift! That was really excited. I'm sorry, gifts are exciting. :) But in truth, I'm just really excited to get married to this man! We have similar likes and goals and both want to start a family.

I haven't done a good job on the diet or exercise this week. The puppy cuts into some of the time. But she doesn't cut into all my time, so I need to try harder. A lot harder. I wanted to start Insanity over a month ago and never did. I have lots of DVDs, I even borrow Wii Dance and it's amazing!! I just need to DO IT.

So while I wasted away tonight (I did run laps around the couch with the puppy), tomorrow will not be a waste. I am headed to the gym to lift, my goal is to lift 3 times a week. And I'm going to knock out cardio tomorrow and at on Monday. Tuesday I see Dave. And on Tuesday I will set new goals. If I don't post Tuesday, yell at me!! MOTIVATE ME!
