Weight Loss Update.

Its been a while....again! It's not that I am not writing, it's just that I have been posting my stuff to Tumblr. I shall quit that and post here.

Last time I went to the Dr. I weighed in at 286lbs. Not to shabby but not where I wanted to be. The reason of my slowed weight loss has been the lack of me going to the gym. I just can't find the time anymore with my new hours. I do get some walk time on my treadmill but its not the same when you swim 20 laps.

I will find the time, I have to find the time!

Just an Update

I am ok. Still dealing with this weight loss. I know I am eating right. I know I am losing weight but I still get desperate. I know I didn't gain this weight in 3 months so I am not going to lose it just as fast. My clothes tell me I am losing it so I'll go with that.

Life? Well, work is stagnant. Not work, work, but my feeling about it. I feel like it's time to move on. I have applied for other positions within my Department but in different Office. I'll see how that goes. The office I am at is great. It takes me 30 minutes to get there instead of the 1.5 hours it took me before. I just can't believe how crazy I was to drive the freaking 96 miles to work. To think I contemplated putting in for a promotion there again. I must be desperate!

School? Yes, I am planning on going back to school. I want to enter ITT and get my bachelor's degree in ITS and an associate in Web design. I really need to learn that shit or I am going to be left way behind in the electronic race of ours. My job will pay for part of my school so I am looking forward to studying again. I'll have to see how I can accomplish this financially.

Weight Loss Update

Well, the day has come and passed. I was weighed in on the 13th of January. How did I do? Not good. I only lost 1 lbs over all and that 1lbs was from fat. Most people would say it is a good amount to lose as long as you lose. But I don't feel that way.

I have been working my ass off getting up at 4 a.m. in order to get to the gym. I was doing some lifting but mainly I was getting my cardio by swimming. I kept up with the swimming as best as I knew/know how. As an example, I started swimming 500 meters per day and I am up to 1000 meters. Boy was I disappointed with my loss.

My nutritionist says that Christmas and New Year's food could be the cause of my not so significant weight loss. Even though I told her that I didn't eat that much food, which I honestly didn't, she said that the scale says otherwise. I will go with what she said and live with it. I have now been eating right and I increased my cardio. ( I did taste some of the non read meat foods but it was the tip of the spoon tasting.)

For my daily cardio workout I am doing 30 minutes on the elliptical machine and 30-45 minutes in the pool. For my food consumption I haven't changed a thing. I am still not eating white flours, no red meat and haven't had caffeine since October.

Is this just a diet? Nope, I want to consider this as a life style change. The greatest thing about my lifestyle change is that my daughter started to eat the same way. I can see the weight loss as well! She says she feels better and is eating things like salmon, tuna steaks, grilled or baked chicken and other healthy things.

You too can lose the wait if you put your mind and soul to it!

First off, I want to let you know that I have switched from a Palm Treo to a Windows Mobile Treo. I love WinMob! I can't believe how powerful the OS is. I can do many things with my WinMob Treo.

What is fring? It is a free application that allows me to skype while using my data plan and not my minutes. With fring you can also setup your IM from Messenger, Gtalk and ICQ. So not only can you call you skype contacts via your data plan, you can IM with your friends as well.

Another thing you can do with fring is twitter. Yes, you can get tweets to your Treo, or any other WinMob deivce. I think that twitter is a little annoying on fring so I don't have it going. Well, if you wanna give this app a try you can click here for fring.
