Pitiful Ally Day...errrrr!!!

It's Monday afternoon and I have had one of those "suck it" days....where everything you think can go wrong retrospect. 

Ever since my weigh in on Friday I have slowly gained weight...yes I know in reality that I really didn't gain the weight since I haven't eaten that many calories...except for maybe today and I have gotten to the gym to workout...two pretty damn good workouts in my opinion. 

But my feelings today have been pretty sucky. I have felt like crap how I feel after taking a nap in the middle of the day, with a slight headache feeling. Might have been from getting up at 545 with the dog to take him out and then laying back down on the couch to "sleep" for another hour. So I thought that maybe getting to the gym and going for a run would be a way to help rid some of the crappy feeling. Yeah...well that didn't workout as plan. My knees were hurting a bit and my legs felt so heavy, like they were full of lead so I only got in about 20 or minutes and most of that was walking. But hey, I haven't had a day off in 2-3 weeks. That would have been good if I haven't been eating all day, craving everything you can think of. Good think I'm broke or there would be a great possibility of me buying the stuff. I'm talking about chocolate, cupcakes, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, cheese fries from Outback....all the "bad" things. So instead I have eaten all the "bad" things that we have in the house...tortilla chips with rotel/velvetta cheese dip, BBQ potato chips, and oreos. Plus I have fallen asleep on the couch a few times which brings back that crappy feeling...UGH! 

On top of this I have a whole list of why my life sucks. Here's just a few:
1. Broke as hell
2. No friends to spend the holiday weekend with
3. Not leaving the house, other than for the gym
4. Wanting to sleep the day away
5. My eyes are giving trouble and I'm having a hard time seeing right (more reason for a headache)

I mean the list can go on and on and on. Yes, I know its a pitiful Ally list, but hey everyone has one once in awhile. I don't expect anyone to change anything on this list but me. And I'm grateful for my therapy session tomorrow. Plus we get back on a normal schedule with the kids back at school and Ty back at work. I do have a meeting Thursday afternoon that I'm really looking forward to since it: 1. gets me out of the house and 2. lets me be around other women to talk to. 

After tonight's dinner I'm going to put this day behind me as far as my eating goes and get back to where I can "control" what and when I eat....I think some of it came out of boredom...ugh the worst kind of eating. Plus I will be back at the gym, I think my body appreciates the day off today, lol. And I have my therapy so I get out of the house a little more than just the gym. I just need to keep looking at the positives when the negatives pop up. 

So, yeah...I feel a bit better now that I got this all out and for the rest of the week I'm going to concentrate on building more muscle in my gym workouts and dropping more fat, maybe with some weight loss thrown in. And also enjoy the small things in life that are there!

That Ugly Fat Girl?

So I was taking a look at my past blogs the other day and I came across the blog I wrote back in April that showed my weight loss journey in pictures. And all I can say is OMG! That starting picture is so freaking horrendous. I can't believe that I actually thought I looked pretty weighing that much. I can't believe that my husband actually found me attractive then. And I can honestly say that I was not one of the pretty fat girls...I was just plain fat and ugly. Its funny what lies one's self will tell them to help them feel good about themselves. I look at myself then and then I look at myself now and can't even comprehend that they are the same person. I feel like I'm a completely different person now. I AM a completely different person now. 

But every once in a while I still look at myself I still see a fat, overweight, ugly person. Like today, I know I had just rocked it on the treadmill doing sprint intervals (definitely going to add that to my workout plan mo…

2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...almost a year in fact...

I have struggled so much with my weight over the last couple of years. I went from about 145 lbs up to 200 lbs. I'm back down in the 190's but so upset since I was so happy when I was in the 140s. I need to tighten my belt, for lack of better words, and get back to watching my diet and really and truly get back to counting calories since I know that works for me. 

What really is heart breaking for me is going up in size in clothing. I went from wearing a size 8 to a 14, now back down to 12. I hate buying new clothes when I ones I love just sitting in my closet now being worn.

The good thing this all is that I truly never gave up working out. I might have not been doing it at the intensity that I was in the past but that has change about 5 months ago. Five months ago I found CrossFit and fell in love. I have found through this program that it is very humbling and empowering. I have done more things that I have n…
