Don't Get You Hopes Up

I don't even know where to start. This weekend was a bit of a disappointment for me. I went to WW on Saturday and i only lost .2 lbs, .2 lbs what the hell is that. I was expecting more then that. So needless to say i was disappointed with myself, but that is my own fault.

Normaly i don't weigh myself at home i just wait till i go to WW well last week i decide that i should step on the scale at home it said that i was down to 198. I was so excited yet an other 2 lbs gone and then i get to WW on Saturday and my excitment was crush when i realized that it is only .2 lbs.

So i am still at the 200 mark. I can't tell you how much that sucks. Now the old me would have gone out and eaten everything in site to feel better but i didn't. I did catch myself snacking more then usual but i didn't go crazy with the eating either. In fact i have not gone to Chipotle this whole week and i heart Chipotle in fact i eat there once a week. Umm talking about Chipotle is making me hungry i think i am going to have to go there for lunch.

Anyways back to what i was saying oh yeah that i was disappointed with the whole .2 lbs lost but then i got myself back together and was able to see that a lost is still a lost even if it is only .2 lbs if i keep losing .2 lbs soon that will add up and slow weight lost is the best kind of weight lost because you keep the weight off longer.

I was thinking about adding some more information about myself on here. My orginal intentions for this blog was for it to be a weight lost blog but as time has progressed and seeing that now i have readers i thought that it would only be fair to share some of my personal life as well. Also i was thinking about sharing this with La Sucias. Desiree, Caro and Reese what do you think? Also i am trying to post a pic of myself on here so that you can see what i look like. Once i figure out to post pictures i will. Does anyone know how to post pic's on here?

A gift

One of my co-works gave me a really cool girft yesterday. The name of the thing escapes me right now but it is one of those things that counts how many steps you take. I thought that was so nice of her to do that. Well yesterday i took 6,473 steps. You are suppose to take 10,000 steps a day. So i need to add some extra steps to my day.

Saturday was a weird day for me. I started the morning out right and then i ended up crying half of the night. Here is the back story on that. Saturday was my cousin Anais 15th birthday party. I had this nice dress that i wanted to wear. I went out on Saturday picking up some last minute things like shoes and a bra to go with the dress.

Well the time came for me to get ready and guess what i must have grabbed the wrong bra because when i went to try it on it did not fit me. So i thought i will wear the dress without it. Umm no can't do that it looked horrable. I caught a glimps of my self in the mirror and the tears just started coming and would not stop.

At that time i felt like someone out there must hate me because everytime i try to get ready for a party i always end up crying because either what i want to wear does not fit me or looks really, really bad. In the end i had to wear pants and a shirt. When i got to the party already in a bad mood i felt even worse when i realized i was the only one in pants everyone else was wearing dress or skirts. I cursed my weight for this because if i was skinny i could have worn what i really wanted to wear instead of what i was wearing.

Now that the day has passed i realized that while some of it might be about my weight alot of my emotional breakdown on Saturday had to do with the fact that i was tired and fustruated about other things. In other news this week for my workout i have decide to do nothing but Pilates, Push-ups and Sit-ups all week long. I feel like i need to do a toning week.

Hey have you guys tried Burger Kings fire-grilled salads? OMG they are so yummy. I tried one on Sunday and i must say they are very good. I know that fast-food salads can be dangerious because they can actually be more fatting then a burger but i make sure to use very little dressing and eat most if not all of the green stuff. You guys have to try these salads they are so yummy. In fact i think that they are going to replace my past addtiction to Chipotle :)

A diet that really works

Hey chica's I thougt a post this cute little email that i received.

1) You walka pasta da bakery.
2) You walka pasta da candy store.
3) You walka pasta da ice cream shop.
4) You walka pasta da table and fridge.

For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health.
It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

A good quote

Well this morning i was able to do some push-ups and sit-ups but that was it but something is better then nothing. I am still eating like crazy but it does not bother me as much now because i feel like i have it more under control now. I found this quote on an other WW members web page and i just love it so i am going to share with you guys. Here it is:

"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."
Earl Nightingale

I don't know what is wrong with me lately i have been in an eating mood. It takes all the will power i have not to eat everything i see. I hope that this passes soon.

That Kicked My Ass

Well i made it through my first week of my workout plan and damn do i feel good. I have been doing the Cardio Salsa and Pilates for some time now so those are not as hard on me. The push-ups and sit-up were also pretty easy but the jump roping well that kicked my ass. I had plan to do 30 min of jump roping but 5 min into it i was out of breath and felt like someone kicked me in the stomach. So i am going to have to work my way up on that. I kinda stuck to my menu actually i was pretty close to it. Well this is going to be a short one because i have to go to Weight Watchers today i don't know where i will be this week so we will see.

Karla's 2 Week Workout Plan

So after yesterdays depressing post i decide that it was time to make a change. Yes i know that i have said this before but i think something finally click because last night i wrote out a schedule and menu for the next two weeks. I have never done that before. So here it is my workout plan.

Feb 7: Rest
Feb 8: Cardio Salsa/ Pilates
Feb 9: Rest
Feb 10: Jump Rope/ Sit ups/ Push Ups
Feb 11: Rest
Feb 12: Cardio Salsa/ Pilates
Feb 13: Rest
Feb 14: Jump Rope/Sit ups/ Push ups
Feb 15: Rest
Feb 16: Cardio Salsa/ Pilates
Feb 17: Rest

Marshmallow Man

That is what i feel like the Marshmallow Man.

I did not get to go to WW on Saturday because i had class. I still have to work out. I suck at working out.

I went to Old Navy on Sunday i wanted to buy a new black top. Well while i was there i noticed that there were alot of cute things on sale. So i picked a few things up and went to try them on and man did that suck.

Nothing fit me and what did fit me looked like crap on me. I wanted to sit on down on the fitting room floor and cry. I hated what i saw and how i felt. I felt like crap. The only thing that did fit me was a velvet track (suite which i bought in black.) I hate going shopping because of that reason. I hate it, hate it. They never have anything cute in my size and when they do it doesn't fit or looks really bad on me. Everytime this happens i feel like crying and i end up feeling like crap for a few days afterwards.

You would think that having days like these would inspire me to lose the weight would be the motivation i need to change but they are not. I don't know what is wrong with me.

So i had today and tomorrow off. Woot! So today i went to Target and they still did not have the jump rope that i was looking for so i went to a local sport shop and there it was. So finally i have my jump rope. I can't wait to start using it.

So yesterday I had the WORSE migraine and I had to go home sick from work. I went home and I went to sleep. I woke up and it was 5 in the afternoon so I ate some soup and then I went back to bed. I woke up this morning feeling better even my cold is better.

Today I am going to go back to Target and see if they have a jump rope any jump rope will do. I need to get rid of my belly if I do that I will be happy. I love my big butt and thick thighs, I don't want to lose those but I would like to have a flat belly.

I am disappointed in myself this weekend my cousin Raquel came by and she looks great she has lost a lot of weight. My mom said "did you see Raquel?" and I said "yes she looks good" and then she made an other comment which I can't remember now but I do remember that it made me mad and I turned on Raquel I said " Yeah well she is taking weight lost pills and who know what that is doing to her body." Right after the words came out of my mouth I felt disappointed in myself. The fact that I turned on her like that ay what is wrong with me?
