Me vs. The FitBit

You know you may have overdone it with the FitBit when your four year old says that she needs to get more steps! LOL.  I can definitely say she's paying attention. And I love the fact that she's picking up on some of my healthier habits. I've had it for about a year and it's kind of bit hit or miss.  I'm either super attentive about it and my steps or meh! There's not much in between.

Last week I told a friend that I wasn't joining any more challenges, because I was tired of being a loser.  Which may be one of the saddest things that I've said ever in the history of saying things.  I'd just decided that hitting goal wasn't possible for me.  That, of course, was a bunch of bs.  The only thing I had to do to be competitive was get off my behind.  That really shouldn't be that hard.  It is though.  Especially with a super sedentary job and the longest commute on Earth.  I got on my own nerves with my whining and got off my ass.  For the first time in forever, I hit goal.  Not just once, but all five days of the challenge.  I wasn't competing against anyone but me.  Me vs. my 10,000 step goal. I felt more energetic than I had it a long time.

I did this five whole times!!!!

Unfortunately, despite my efforts, the scale is stuck.  My body is good and health at 233.  It likes it here.  This is probably because I've spent a lot of time at this weight.  In fact, when I became pregnant with Ladybug I was this weight.  Although my body is happy here, my mind is not.  So I need to buckle down and get even more focused.  Plateaus suck but they don't last forever.  I'm going to add weights into my workouts.  And I'll become more vigilant with my carbs.  I generally don't think about vegetables when counting carbs and that needs to change.  My next goal is 215, but I'll never get there if I don't get the hell away from the 230s.

I only work two days this week.  Given that I find it so much easier to "do right" when I'm at work this week may end up being pretty interesting.

20 For 20

In the two months since my last post (oops) a few things have changed. I lost the extra med weight and am focused as hell Monday through Friday. During the week I'm a carb hating dietary BEAST. But then weekends happen and I lose my damn mind. So I gain a few pounds of bloat and foolishness then lose them during the week and repeat. And repeat and... For the past couple months. Which is a hot mess. The hottest of messes. 

I decided this past weekend that I was going to get my life together ! No more weekend foolishness. I was going to focus on just the next 20 pounds. I was going to do 20 for 20. What does that mean? No idea. I made it up and didn't bother to explain it to myself. 

Twenty pounds in 20 days isn't safe or realistic. Instead, for 20 days I'm going to focus on one thing per day. Does that make sense? Heck if I know, I'm making it up as I go along. 

Day 1 - Water 

Water is vitally important to any diet. And especially important for those who have massive amount of carb bloat and would like their pants not to hurt. Triple that importance for those who have given away all their fat pants.  My goal was 64 ounces for the day, so far I'm beating that by 20 or so. 

I know I can do this if I just stay focused.

About Me

I'm a 30-something wife, mom and pet parent. I've been blogging since 2004, at first solely on a blog for my friends and family. I love to write about everything. I can't say that A Bacon Flavored Life is about any one thing. If it occurs to me, it'll get posted. I write about life, love, infertility and a lot of "random".
