A few days late

Wednesday weight 171.4 same as two weeks ago.  I am satisfied with no gains, as I've had a really bad last week and a half.  I am working through it and have a better couple days.  I also have had a really sore lower back, muscle spasms.  Luckily for me C is almost finished his a degree in occupational therapy/kinesiology and has been a huge help! So after a week of stretching and mobility exercise, I am feeling better.  So we will see what next Wednesday brings, so far I've been doing everything right this week.

Run Mama Run

One of my 4 running partners!  But possibly the cutest!  I've started running a couple times a week with LB, the 2 dogs and Ro.  We are using a couch to 5K app on my phone spent $2.99 and it's pretty awesome.  It is an 8 week running program which you run 3 times a week and it sets you up to be able to run a full 5 k at the end of it.  It so far has been well worth the $3 spent.  I love having/dragging the family along with me its extra motivation!

New Trainer

I was not happy when K left and I had to find a new trainer, upset and was planning on canceling my membership and eating the money that I had paid out for the training.  They convinced me to keep going until the end of August and trying out a new trainer. So I took a chance and BEST DECISION!  C is a great trainer and exactly who I needed.

C is a guy which is different already so we work out on the other side of the gym (instead of the women's only), he isn't as hard on my case about what I'm eating only that moderation and healthy.  K wanted me to stop eating fruit and anything with sugar, that was a bit to extreme for me.  I am sorry but a banana is okay, for me anyways, and it is all about moderation.

C pushes me more the K, way more.  For example when we do squats with K they were just squats and with C they are back squats with up to 75 pounds! Every exercise I have done with C has been way more extreme and harder.  We always go to my breaking point with every exercise, it is crazy, and I love it.  I feel stronger then I ever have in my life.

So we are 3 weeks in, and I am happy and motivated.

No weigh in Wednesday

I binged yesterday, not as bad as I used to,  but I still did.  I managed to get the rest of the day on track which is a big accomplishment for me and made a super yummy and healthy supper.  The normal events following a binge is getting so angry with myself, and choosing not to eat, end up starving and the over eating and the cycle continues for the rest of the day and maybe for a couple days.  So yesterday despite the failings of yesterday this is a positive accomplishment, and I decided not to weigh in and make myself feel bad.

I am feeling super overwhelmed as a mom, I have no idea what I am doing.  My little guy is growing so fast and I feel like I just can't keep up with him.  He is developing leap and bounds and everyday there is a "first" and I am really trying to make sure the house is safe and he is getting all his needs met.  Good grief I lost him, in the locked house. I couldn't find him anywhere and it turns out he was behind his bedroom door, but when he doesn't make any noise when you call and call and look in the room and don't see him,  you get panicky.  There are so many little things that happen like this on a daily basis, it makes it makes me feel overwhelmed and unprepared.

Weigh In Wednesday

171.2 just over a pound.  I am a little surprised that I actually lost a pound as my eating was way off track this weekend.  One thing I've noticed is I don't remember from one week to the next what my weight is!  This is amazing considering when I started this journey I was a bit obsessed with the number, this is progress I tell you!
