S.O.S....Looking for that girl that was 144 lbs back in December...

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

K, so I'm angry...started out this morning as depressed, but now I'm just flipping mad. This blog is a bit of a rant. But I plan to work out the anger and get into a fix it mode...just bare with me please.

I weighed myself this morning...and guess what the scale said...157. WHAT!?!?!?!?!?! That's heavier than I was in the fall when I started trying to lose weight. I mean really? Who does that? O wait, me...my lazy a$$ does.

I started out depressed this morning...o so depressed, and got a chicken biscuit at the convenient store this morning, but then I started thinking and DING, those biscuits got me up to 157 lbs...so, now I'm mad...so very mad. I did this to myself. I sat around this summer gaining weight instead of losing an ounce. I did nothing to help myself and now I have three weeks until I meet my students and I'm fatter than ever.

So, goal from now until Sunday morning, get down to 153....4 lbs! Yes...I know. BUt here is the thing, I am pretty sure a pound or two of it is water weight bc I ate a lot of buttery popcorn last night...and a turkey burger at like 9 last night. (Got home late, but REALLY Amanda, a burger at 9 at night? Go slap some freaking lard on your a$$ instead)

So, I'm freaking out here a little bit...but here is my challenge...FIND the girl that wants to lose weight. Get over food and how good it tastes....love the HEALTHY stuff.

Rules from now until school starts:
~Eat 1200-1500 calories a day.
~Drink only water, milk, tea, and coffee. (No alcohol until I get under 150 again)
~Work out EVERY day (3 days ST and cardio, and 4 days all cardio.)
~Check in every day to note how I'm doing...and post differential in calories. Gotta be at least 1,000 each day to lose 2 lbs a week. I'm only doing this for 3 weeks, so I can def do it!

I start this TODAY. I coached this morning for 3 hours. Rode my bike for 45 minutes before that. Now I'm about to head to the gym for some running, elliptical, and bicycle time. I plan to not leave until I have burned 600 calories. =)

Food so far..
Bfast was that blasted chicken biscuit (500 calories...yes, that much for a not great biscuit)
Lunch - veggie stir fry (150 cals)
Post w/o snack - Spinach protein smoothie (150 cals)
Dinner - Taco salad 251 cals and strawberries 50 cals.

Have a good day, thanks for baring with me frustrations at the beginning.

    I'm sorry you're feeling so upset and that you've gained. I'm back from my mini vacation now, so let's be accountabilibuddies again! I need someone to hold me to my goals and I'll do the same for you. You can be at 149 in 3 weeks!
