Barely eaten the past two days yet I’ve put on weight. So discouraging. Trying to look at the big picture here and not sweat the small stuff. Blahhhh!

I have noticed that the days I eat less, I lose less (or gain). What an anomaly.

SW: 240
CW: 173.5

Totally dropped a bunch of weight overnight. Really needed that motivation booster! 3.5 more pounds and I’ll have lost 70 total. That’s insane. I have come so far and it’s days like today where I feel I can do anything if I set my mind to it.

I forgot to post yesterday and haven’t done my work out yet today so I will post yesterday’s work out:

150 crunches
50 push ups
20 tricep dips
20 squats
2 minute plank

SW: 240
CW: 175.2

Finally this period bloat fell off, and then some! I have to be honest, I haven’t worked out much these past 5 days. All you girls who push through the “period blues” inspire me. My cramps and lethargy get so bad it’s hard to peel myself off the sofa, where I lay in the fetal position with a movie. It might also have something to do with my hypothyroid, but I’m sick of hypo being an excuse. I did manage to do about 10 to 20 minutes of cardio every other day but that’s still pretty sad. I did get back on track today as I’m finally cramp free!

Exercise so far:
30 push ups
30 squats
90 crunches
60 leg lifts
10 chair dips (those are hard!)

I know I can do better than this. I felt weak from not doing anything for 5 days. I’m going to do more of each tonight and see if I can at least double these numbers.

"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I though maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him. As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either. He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight. Some inspiring things he said;"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love""I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates""People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it.""Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”

This is beautiful.

I cried.

Weighed in at 177.1 today, and started my period as expected. Hopefully this bloating goes down soon.

How do people manage to work out on their periods? I feel like I’ve been hit by a garbage truck.

A message from jelenasloveslays
Hello my name is Sierra and I want to say good job on the weight loss I am trying as well.

Thank you! We can do this! :)

Starting weight: 240
Today’s weigh in: 177.9

Exercise so far today:
42 min run
100 crunches
50 push ups
50 pelvic lifts
20 squats
10 lunges

I think I’m going to start my period soon. My weight keeps bouncing up and down even though I’ve been working really hard. I’m pretty bloated. I definitely need to eat extra veggies tonight!

I decided to go easy on my legs today because they’re still recovering from my last work out, I was barely able to walk after that one and I don’t want to see that happen again. I beat some of my records today though! Progress.

Just ran for over 40 minutes! I haven’t been able to go more than 40 before. I see progress every day, whether it’s in my size or my abilities. I’m sweating like a crazy person! Now onto resistance :)

Roasted Brussels Sprouts - This is just a basic recipe, but there is a reason — it’s just plain good. These pint-sized cabbages take on a nutty flavor when roasted. It’s the difference between a boiled or baked potato.

I love these! Made them last week. Absolutely delicious. My fiancé and I like to put hot sauce on them.
