#Mamavation Monday - Shouldn't I Be Skinny By Now?


#Mamavation Monday - Shouldn't I Be Skinny By Now?

The quick answer is NO. Why? The other day I was looking back three years ago at my bank statements looking for the name of a cleaning company. What I saw blew my mind! Several charges right in row, fast food place, another fast food place, another, another and another. WT? Were we really eating out that much? Yes. Bank statements have no reason to lie. If I ate like that in 2007 and stopped at the end of 2009 then I still have a long way to go. There never seems to be a quick fix or if there is it comes back to haunt you any way. I'm going for weight loss but really life changes for me and my family. It's like having to relearn everything all over again. In gym class I was not the one that wanted run laps just for fun. lol - I will now just because I can.

Have you caught Heavy on A&E? What about the show I Use To Be Fat on MTV? Personally I watch to see if I can learn something and I do. I take away something, a lesson learned, a new food or training tip. What blows me away about The Biggest Loser and I Use To Be Fat is the amount of hours in one day that they work out. My max workout has been 2 hours back to back. Could that be why I'm not losing the weight that I think I should.

Pizza Hut - 1 visit
Texas Roadhouse - 1 visit - made good choices from the menu this time. I really thought about it.

Scale Reading -180 and that is a 1 pound gain. I weighed myself daily just to track and research. Sunday I didn't hit the gym. I also slacked a little over dinner. That combination resulted in a gain this week. At least I think it did.

Stress Level - The Mr. is still gone. My son had issues at school and home all week. It was not good.

The UP side -I tried something different this week by taking reformer pilates. It was an eye opening experience. No matter how strong I think that I am there are always some muscles that still need to be worked! I'm still hanging in there with the 30 Day Shred.

A bit of inspiration for you ladies!
Remember - YOU are a role model.

BLOGGING CARNIVAL: This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by Fiber Plus. By answering the questions below I’m entering a blogging carnival sponsored by Fiber Plus and will be receiving a free sample in return.

Question: How are you getting more fiber in your diet this New Year?
I'm trying to eat tons of apples daily. My crossfit trainer Shaun McCrary was telling me how eats many of them daily. It seemed simple enough and there is such a wide variety of flavors! I'm starting to research more foods with high fiber content. I think this blogging carnival showed up just in the nick of time for me.
