LilySlim - Weight loss

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Hi Everyone! Suggestions needed. Sorry I've been gone so long.

Hello there! Yes It's been 2 months and 2 weeks (roughly) since my last post. And I can definitely tell how far off track I have wandered.

But.... Happy Holidays!! and


The last 2 months have been bad weight wise. I have gained 12 lbs since July. And I have not really worked out since before thanksgiving.

I blame no one and no excuses for my behavior. All I know is I have to get it under control before I end up back at 275.

I don't have a lot to share. Here are a few pictures.
We had some Halloween fun and watched some scary movies!

Dressed up and decorated!
Went to basketball games
 
Decorated for Christmas....
Painted....

Sat by the fire....


Looked at the lights...
 Baked Holiday goodies!
 
 Prepared Christmas Dinner...
 

Learned important things...
 
 
 Remembered 2013... 
 
 
That is the last 2 months in review.
 
This mornings weight... 219.4. Up 11 lbs. since July.
 
I am struggling getting into a routine with work. Finding time to workout has proven to be challenging. I was working out in the morning but we have been busy at the garage so I am needed there earlier.
 
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to manage my time better? My thoughts are to join a gym and workout in the afternoon. I think I can leave for a couple of hours to do this.
 
I am also looking into a gym membership. My choices are 24H fitness or Bally's. What do you prefer? and why? Bally' is a cheaper membership. 24H fitness has the whole 24 hour thing.
 
I will not be defeated! I will not give up. I will overcome this setback and prevail!
 
And no! I am not going to make a New Year's resolution I will not keep!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Down 3.2 lbs!! SWEET!!!
 
Whew! Glad all this working out is starting to pay off again!
 
How totally cute is O-Ryan?!?! I call this one "Little Red Ryan Hood"!
 
Let's not forget Frost! She loves cuddling under the covers!
 
Been rocking the workouts!! M-W-F Zumba, EA Active, & walking the pup! Tues & Thursday elliptical and treadmill. 1 hour a day, over 500 calories daily. Saturday and Sunday rest. Occasionally gets a little off schedule but really trying for 5 days minimum! Feeling good too!
Been cooking more and more at home too! Went and got a crockpot with a timer! So much better to have dinner ready when I get home! Keeps me from eating at 8 PM!



I saw this in the store the other day! I didn't buy it, but its a 2lb peanut butter cup!!!! OMG Would be heaven! Until I thought about all the calories afterwards, so I left it on the shelf, in the store!
I have had a couple of these! I love popcorn!! And it's even better like this!
Latest painting! Tomorrow I paint some more!
Funny for the day!
The conversation with my Mother went better than expected. She didn't expect me to say anything about how disappointing I am to her, But I stayed strong and brave and told her about it anyway. I am proud of myself for getting out of my comfort zone and telling her how I feel!! :) YAY ME!!
 
I have to say, I love these google awesome motion photos it automatically puts together with 5 pictures or more. SHHHH don't tell her I posted this ;)
And of course.....
Some inspiration for the day!
Feels good to be back!! Thanks for bearing with me everyone!! I truly mean that! :)
 
New addiction?!?! Thai Iced tea!! SO YUMMY!!!
 
AHHH and that, my friends, brings me to the end of my post for today! Have a fabulous weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by!
