Exercising before I even TOUCH my computer!!!

1exerciser1.jpgThat is what I am going to do from now on.  As soon as I get on my computer, I am in blogging mode (and it doesn’t help that I am just alittle addicted to blogging–just ask my hubby).  So this morning, I took a longing glance at my computer, then did some exercising.  It wasn’t much (due to the fact that I am REALLY out of shape and have a baby guunt–that is my tummy—or what used to be my tummy).  It was only stretching.  But I figured I should be able to move for the real exercising.  But it did take me 10 minutes to do the basic stretches and I was sweating and out of breath.  How sad…but I guess I have to start somewhere.  But I did it.  And I ate a healthy breakfast of banana, coffee, and fruit chips.  YUM!

Holiday Food Switcheroonie

39109c.jpgAlright ladies…if you are anything like me, I love me a good slice of cake and maybe some egg nog on the side.  MMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmm…eggnog. 

But-did you know-just 1 slice of gingerbread cake and 1 8oz. glass of eggnog is…are you ready….606 calories and 31 g. total fat….yea…i know…can you believe it.

But-did you also know-that if you did a switeroonie to 1 slice of angel food cake and 1 8 oz. glass of hot chocolate, it is….152 calories and 3 g. total fat….yea…i know…i can’t believe the difference either.

So now that I have that thought in your head, I bet you (as well as myself) will think twice before you reach for that Christmas cookie.

Tales From The Scales Progress Report

talesseptemberbannerlong.jpgSo here we are again.  This is my first check in.  I weighed myself and I weigh 305.  I guess that is a loss.  But my exercising fell by the waistside.  It is just so cold out.  That is my excuse….lousy excuse.  I have thought about my lack of exercise all week….everyday infact.  I really need to buckle down and just do it.  It is not like I have never exercised before.  And it isn’t like I am out there for very long…I can only do about 10-15 minutes until I feel like I am going to pass out.  But this weekend I think I am going to get the awesome exercise bike from my parents and put it in our living room….lets see what kind of excuse I can come up with then.  But go and support our other ladies in their weight loss struggles.  Good luck and I will see you in our elastic sized blogosphere.

Tales From The Scales–just joined

talesseptemberbannerlong.jpgSo this is my first Tales from the scales.  I will admit it…I am overweight.  Alot.  If you go by my fat percentage-I am morbidly obese.  If you go by the scale-I am 310…ouch.  How did that happen?

Well, when my hubby and I met, I was 185 and smokin.  Then I got pregnant and I used it as an excuse to eat all the time and stop exercising–which I did for an hour everyday.  I gained 60lb. with that pregnancy.  I slowly kept gaining.  Then I got pregnant.  I didn’t really gain alot of weight.  I was afraid of just getting too big.  Then I got pregnant again–with twins.  This time I had to gain weight or else (that is what the doctor said).  So now, that gets me to 310…again..ouch.

I don’t mind being overweight.  But I am embarrassed to go out in public with how big I am.  And my hubby knows I am embarrassed.  He says he doesn’t care how big I am but he also knows how much happier I was when I weighed less.  He wants me to be happy.  I want to be happy.  So I guess that is why I kind of started this blog and joined this challenge. 

And what am I going to do to get myself back on track…gee…I really don’t know.  Maybe:

  1. Eat less
  2. Measure what I eat
  3. Start a food diary
  4. Exercise everyday
  5. Get my parent’s kick butt exercise bike (they like to call it their clothes hanger), put it in our living room and go nuts on that sucker

Yea…maybe I could do those things first and go from there.  But in the meantime, I think I will go check out the other people who have accepted this challenge.  Why don’t you join me!
