Weight Loss Wednesday


I know, I know...it's Thursday. For some reason, Wednesdays are hard for me to blog, as it's usually a busy day. I should really change the title.

I haven't update about my weight loss journey in awhile, because frankly, I've been quite depressed and frustrated about it. I'm not really gaining any weight (I fluctuate between a few pounds) but I'm not losing any more. I still have a long ways to go, so this is irritating. I'm not an unhealthy person, but my exercise routine has slowed way down. I was loving The Shred workout but I wasn't losing weight. I would still do it just for maintaining an exercise routine, but right now, getting up at 5:30 to work out just doesn't fly with my busy schedule...I'm too tired. So, I'll revisit this in 4 weeks when school is out. I would love to get out and run now that the weather is getting nicer...but I can't with kids. I have no equipment at home and can't afford a treadmill which is what i'd really love.

But these are just excuses. NO EXCUSES. I need to stop making excuses and remember what it felt like to look in the mirror that day in August. ICK. I won't go back to that, EVER.

Here's the good news:

Yesterday, I stopped at Victoria's Secret Outlet to look around and they were having an incredible sale....ALL their clothing $5 or less! This included ALL their VS Sportswear! I got a $64 zip up for $5!!! Yoga pants, t-shirts, I got WAY excited, cause I love their sports line. I added up the original prices....I got $250 worth of stuff for $43.00!!! Seriously, I was giddy. And it made me want to get out and exercise!!!

Wait, it gets better...

I was whining to the hubs last night about how much I miss my membership. He told me he was already wanting to add it back on (we get a discount through his work and it comes directly out of his check) for me, cause he knew how much I miss it. So, he did as an early Mother's Day gift to me!!! WOO HOO

It has totally given me another boost of motivation! I went grocery shopping, bought tons of healthy and yummy food for the week, and I can start back to the gym on Saturday! Can't wait to work up a great sweat!

I'll try to check back in next week....wish me luck!

Wow! I wish someone told me about that sale! I'm on the weight loss bandwagon as well. Good luck and keep us updated :)

You can do it!

Try garage sales for excersice equipment. My mom found a brand new row machine for $10 at one! I'm so jealous! Sometimes you can pick up the bands or weights for very cheap.

I am so jealous of your awesome bargain at VS...that is so awesome!

I am still on my journey to live a healthy lifestyle...I had to try a bunch of different things before I found ones that worked.
I am going to be trying px 90 soon to tone!

You sound happy and that is awesome! ;)

You don't need luck!! You are totally gonna rock it!

Also, maintaining weight loss, and continuing exercise are fabulous things you are doing for yourself. Way to go!

OMG!!! You lucky girl! I know it sucks about losing weight (and not) all we can do is love and support each other and we can get through it. You can do it.

I would like to preface this by saying that I have no clue who you saw in the mirror in August. :( You are beautiful, funny and charming. THE END.

PS. Was this at Great Lakes Crossing? Was there a ton of stuff? Maybe I need to go back.

PSS. I look forward to seeing you at the gym!~ :)

There's such a thing as VS outlet?!? Soooo need to find one!

And hang in there -- as long as the bumps in the road don't turn into potholes, you'll be re-motivated in no time.

Maybe you could find a treadmill on Craigs List?

I can totally relate to you with working out and having a "No Excuses" attitude! For so long I've been trying to convince myself that I don't have to time exercise, but in reality I'm just avoiding it. I also workout to the Shred, and I notice that when you add cardio on the off days it really makes a difference on the scale! Good luck on your journey! I'm really enjoying your blog!
