One Foot Infront of the Other

It’s been a while since I last posted. I’ve been trying to get my life together one step at a time between my life in general, health, my freelance business and a art gallery that I’m trying to open. But I think it’s finally lining up like I want it to.

First off I need to concentrate on my health. I want to loose my last 20 lbs and it’s getting harder and harder because I’m starting to get comfortable where I am and that’s not what I want. I’m still eating right, it’s the exercising that I need to get back into. To motivate me to keep going, I’ve been taking instagram pics of my food and my calorie count on sparkpeople. I lost my gym membership, not that I would want to go now since so many people are there for the new years.

My business right now is going good. I just need to organize it a little more and use reminders because I’ve been forgetting lately and that’s not good for business. I’m also trying to save up and fundraiser to get a new computer. My laptop went out on me and now I’m using my gf Macbook Air which is good but not good enough for what I need. I need space. The storage space is horrible. I had to buy a external hard drive to help.

Another thing I’m doing is that I’m trying to open a Art Gallery/Studio/Graphic Design business called Mysteries. We already bought the name and now we are trying to file as a non-profit as well as try to get the business plan done. We are doing this ourselves with no help business we wanted to do this alone. If you want to follow our progress, here’s the link to the blog, mysteriesart.blogspot.com

This year is the year of accomplishment and by the end I want to be comfortable in what I’m doing and no stressing. Please continue to support me as you guys have been doing lately, I really appreciate it.

The Result of the Fast

So I fasted yesterday and boy was it hard. Next time I do it, I’ll make sure I have something I can sip on all day at work. I drunk 2 cups of coffee in the morning and had to make a another pot to help me through the afternoon. It was 1 cup though. My co-workers was like “You sure are drinking a lot of coffee today”. I couldn’t tell them I was fasting because they would ask questions. Also I had 1 cup of water. I’m not a water drinker in the least. I know I should drink about 8 or 10 cups a day but to someone who has a hard time drinking water, that’s nearly impossible but I do try. So I weighed myself this morning and I went from 145 that morning to 143.8. Which is 1.2lb so I was close. I won’t be fasting again today though because I need food. LOL I’ll really have to prepare myself for the next fast but I’m happy that it worked.

Impossible Light Dinners

Lately, I told myself that I’ll have a protein shake for dinner to help keep the calories down and help my body regenerate after a good workout. So far, that has not happened.

Monday, Leftover Beef Pie

Tuesday, Leftover Beef Pie and Birthday Cake

Wednesday, Cheddar’s Restaurant, Grilled Chicken Alfredo.

Unfortunately, I gained 1.8 back but today I’m going to fast. I think it’ll let my body have a break and disgust the food. Because I won’t be eating that many calories today, I’ll do a low impact workout, such as, doing a level 5 on the elliptical instead of 8 like a usually do and no strength training. I hope I lose what I gained tomorrow and if I don’t, I’ll fast another day. I’ll just have to be stead fast and determine to lose the extra calories I took in.

24 Hour Fitness

I’ve decided that I’m done with Youfit and I want to go back to 24 hour fitness. I know it’s more expensive but it’s a better gym for me. Not only is it open for 24 Hours LOL but it has other benefits, like Pool, Jacuzzi, Classes, etc. Can’t wait. Next weekend I’m signing up. I’m so happy!

As for my weight, I’m bouncing up and down like a yo-yo at the weight that I don’t want to be 149-147. *sighs* I’m hoping that exercising at the gym will help. I’m one of those people who weight themselves everyday because I want to know my progress. It would kill me if I didn’t know. LOL.

I’m also watching what I eat and I’ll admit that sometimes I don’t make good choices. Yesterday I had panera bread that was 390 calories. Good right? But then I turned around and had Coldstones. Now I will admit I had their smallest sizes but my GF gave me some of hers as well and she had the biggest size “Gotta Have It”. LOL At least I’m not over 150 like I thought I would be over this weekend. YAY!

Now I’m trying to start off the week right again with what I eat. Here’s to my journey of 130 lbs. Wish me luck!
