How Low Can You Go


>> Tuesday, October 30, 2012

     I really do not know what I am doing.  I am so lost with my weight loss  weight.  I am trying to get the motivation that I once possessed and get back to some sort of normal but, it is not working.  I am trying to eat better and cut back on the crap.  I am going to the gym and trying to make an effort, but honestly my heart is not in it.
     I am going to be heading to hot yoga again for the 30 Day Challenge or the month of November.  I did it last year and it was really great.  I am hoping that this will give me some sort of motivation.


I Need A Life Make Over

>> Friday, October 26, 2012

     This have not been going to so well for me lately.  The apartment I moved into a few months ago is falling apart.  Thank God they are FINALLY doing something about that next week, but it is depressing to come home to a place that looks a certain way and there is nothing that you can do about it.  I recently found out that I have to have a minor surgery and I am really scared.  I told my mother and she just made things worse.  Weight loss is none existent because I have aforementioned things to worry about.   With all the drama on the blog, I am wondering is it time to just wrap it up or like so many people here in blogland are doing should I just take a break?  What to do...what to do....


A Step In The Right Direction

>> Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Monday, I had my weekly weigh in for the gym's Biggest Loser contest and I lost 1.4 pounds (0.61%).  I am happy with that.  I am going to aim to have the same loss next week.  I also played Ultimate Frisbee on Monday night instead of going to the gym.  It was a really great workout and I am going to be a sub for the team during the winter season.
     Besides that life is pretty boring.  Hope that all is well with you.  I apologize for the drama that has been happening around here.  I am touched that some of you said that you find me an inspiration, I never really thought of myself in that way *blushing*.
     On a side note, I am going to be in NYC in a few weeks and my mother and I are going to see a musical, any suggestions?  I have seen Chicago, Wicked, Billy Elliot and How to Succeed in Business With Even Trying.  But I would love to see one or two shows when I am there.  I LOVE musicals!  Please let me know what you have seen and loved (or hated).  Thanks!


Cross Country Running

>> Monday, October 22, 2012

This weekend I travelled with 5 of my students, 6 hours on the bus to the cross country provincials   They girls did really well.  All of them beat their previous times and I even had one student who placed 25th out of almost 100 girls.  I am so proud of them.

Tonight is the first weigh in for the Pre-Holiday Biggest Loser Challenge, I will let you know how it goes.


Let's Try This Again

>> Tuesday, October 16, 2012

    After losing a few followers after the last post, I have had time to think seriously about my next move.  I have never been good at taking constructive criticism.  Ever since I was young, that has been my weakness.  I do not like to be TOLD that I am doing something wrong, let alone told how to fix it.  As I have grown older I have realized that I do not know everything (shocking I know) and the only way to get better and improve myself is to listen to others and take their advice, especially when they know what they are talking about.  So I am slowing starting to get  back to my old ways eat better; more veggies, less carbs, more water, less cookies and getting back to the gym on a regular basis.
    The gym is having a Biggest Loser type contest that is coined as a way to loss some weight before the holidays. I have entered this 7 weeks to lose the most % body fat and I hope that I can make some strides, my goal would be to lose 10 pounds, which would be about 4% body fat.
     I tried Cardio Box last night and my upper body is feeling it this morning.

   Thank you for all your comments (good and not so good), I do appreciate everyone that reads.  I really do.

just wanted to say, i like reading your blog bc you are so committed to working out it's crazy. The races you run inspire me because it is a struggle for me to run a mile so clearly you must be fit. The thing is, you clearly don't eat well. You might feel like you do but even the once in a whiles you say "it's a celebration so i don't feel bad etc etc" is insight to that. Oh and also, the scale doesn't lie... i mean it's not the whole story but there's no way a person works out as long as you do for such an extended period of time and won't lose weight. Case in point. My friend is a bodypump, body step and body attack instructor. She teaches about 7-8 classes a week bc she is always subbing for people. CRAZY fit and strong...but she never looked it. she didn't look fat but she didn't look like someone you'd say worked out a lot. weighed about 190 (although coz of all the muscle she looked about 175 to me). Anyway, someone challenged her to follow a eating plan a nutritionist had on Just Because...

This comment was left for me the other day.  Not sure how I feel about it.  There is truth to it BUT, I once weighed 272 pounds and I now weigh 226.  I have still maintained a 46 pound loss.  I am not going to justify anything because many things said here are correct.  That is all for today.  


Just Because...

Hello Bloggers!
       Things are going a bit better in this corner of the world. I am recommitted to my life and I am taking the proverbial bull by the horns.  In the back of my mind I always have that under 200 goal in my head and I am hoping that one day I can reach it.  Yesterday, I went HARD at the gym; 35 minutes of cardio, 35 minutes of weights, then i went to Running Room and did a group run.  We were tackling hills and we ended up doing almost 6 km.
     As per usual road blacks stand in my way, after work today we are going for Indian and this weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving.  Pray for me.


My Body Just Won't Work

>> Wednesday, October 3, 2012

I am really disappointed in my body. When I eat well and go to the gym nothing happens, when I eat badly and stay away from the gym nothing happens.  WTF!  I don't get whey my body is holding onto the weight.  I am not giving up yet, but it is super discouraging.



>> Monday, October 1, 2012

I always feel like I am starting over, yet I refuse to give up.  I cannot believe that October is already here.  Where did September go?  I went for a run with the run club today and we did 5.5k , it is great to see the girls so happy about their distances.  I am really proud of them.

I sometimes feel like my body has given up on me. Whatever happened to the 10 pound loss months.  I feel like those days are long gone.  Just gotta keep truckin....

Over at All The Weigh it is Friend Makin Mondays and here are my responses.

 Uniquely You

1) Do you prefer to talk or text? I love talking.  But I like text because there are a few people that I may not talk to, but I will definitely text them.
2) How often do you make your bed? Once or twice a week (hangs head)
3) What sounds do you hear right now? Kids talking downstairs (I am in the staff room at work)
4) List three things that you always carry with you.  Cell phone, bank card, driver's licence 
5) What are your favorite TV shows? Law and Order SVU, Criminal Minds, Big Bang Theory and Amazing Race.
6) Is there a hobby that you’d like to devote more time to? If so, what is it? I wish I had more time to read.  I love books and in summer I can read one every few days.
7) What is your favorite drink?  Amaretto and Cranberry juice.
8) Share a couple of cool facts about your family. My parents come from Trinidad I am first generation Canadian.  My mother's name is Icis which is the Egyptian goddess of fertility.  My grandmother was looking for a name when she was pregnant and someone who worked on a ship had travelled to Egypt and heard the name.  Unfortunately, they didn't know how to spell it, it should be Isis.
9) List one thing that you will do for yourself today. Go to the gym and do some strength training.
