Eating well, not exercising at all

Kristin Gleis
Mar 23, 2010

 

This past week, the kids were on spring break from school. I worked a lot and I went to Michigan for a long weekend to go gambling with the family. Workouts this week, well, didn't happen. My plan was to be at the gym three days this past week, but working and spending time with the kids outweighed my desire to exercise.
I did very well with eating while in Michigan. I didn't eat any desserts or crab legs with the melted butter. I was happy with my salad and prime rib.

I didn't over indulge in Captain Morgan's and Diet Vernors either. The major difference I notice is how I really think about what I'm going to eat or drink before it touches my mouth.

When I think about how many calories is in a regular soda, I also think about how long I would be on the bike or the treadmill to burn those calories off. I'd rather drink water and save those "bad" calories for something worth my while. Drinking a 20-ounce soda is not worth it.

My plan for this week is to be at the gym at least five days. My weight is slowly coming off and I know that it is due to the fact that I have not been exercising like I should.
I know what the problem is, and I am the only person who is able to fix it.

 

With that being said, I'm going to try my hardest to be at Weigh of Life five days this week and I will be in those jeans on May 18.

Four weeks to go, I can do this. I just need to deal with the daily curve balls thrown at me and learn to manage my time a little better.

Tired of BS

You know Kristin, I've been reading your blogs now since you've started and frankly I'm tired of your lack of will and motivation.  All I ever seem to hear from you are Excuses.  Your not being a very good role model if your able to talk yourself out of putting in hard work each week.  Its just so very depressing that your not giving it your all.  You are spoiling an awesome opportunity.

Tired of BS .... I am terribly sorry that you feel all you hear from my blog are excuses. If you do not feel like I am a role model to you or others, than "Frankly" I really do not care if you read my blog. I do not need the negative engery you are sending my way.  If you would like to come watch my children for me on the days when I am unable to find a sitter so I can go workout, please come over and be my guest.  Also if you would like to work 8 of the 16 hour shifts I'm pulling at work and give me half the money to pay my bill, again please I would love someone to help me out a bit more so I can forget about "Life" and go workout. Its not that easy for me, and that is not an excuse. Its the truth.

Like I have said since I have started this challege, I am a real person, so if you can since my attitude and "bitchyness" coming out in this, it is and if you know me, really know me, than you would know how nasty my attitude can be at times. I am losing weight for myself. I am not losing weight to please you or anyone else. I have not read any positive comments from you when I stated I had lost 27lbs, so why now do you decided to come out of the wood work and let me know how depressing I am to you.

You know I support you 100% in this roller coaster of a ride of losing weight. I am so PROUD of you and you should be proud of yourself as well!!  (for all the weight you have lost already and the weight that you continue to lose).

Keep your eye on the prize............The prize being YOU in a smaller size!!

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!

LOVE,  Aunt Sheri

WOW, I had no idea that Kristen Gleis was the only person in Sandusky with so called "kids" that has a job and bills.  My mistake!  Again its just another excuse.  Nice to know that your willing to leave "your" kids with any stranger off the internet so you can attempt to work out.  I think it's sad that you mention I never commented on you losing 27lbs., didn't know you needed someone to hold your hand and give you a gold star everytime you don't load up on carbs or binge drink like your photos on myspace show.  Maybe you should cut out all the trips and instead hit the gym since your unhappy with your not-so-rapid weight loss.

Why does everyone feed off of drama. If u are not here to support Kristin go on about ur business. Didn't ur mother tell u if you don't have anything nice to say don't say any thing at all!? How about a little engouragment? She had the courage to put her self out there and is doing more for her health than most of us. I'm so proud of u KG. Shake em off and keep ur head up and know that the people who matter.. The ones that care about u and your success are behind u. Love u!

First of all BS..ER, My name is spelled KRISTIN, so next time you want to try and  put me down, Spell my name right. Secondly, what the hell does "SO CALLED KIDS" mean? I adpoted my crack addicted father's three children, so I guess you could be right when you say "SO CALLED", but you tell me at the age of 23 years old, would you have taken on the responsablity of someone else children?  Not alot of people would have, than again I'm not like most people. I think I stated before that I am a very outspoken female that can have a very nasty attitude. If you know me, or hell for that matter if you even THINK you know me, you know damn well that I can be a heartless witch. With that being said, Why don't you step up your game and let me know who you are. I would really like to know the person who is so dissapointed in me and my weight loss so far.  BTW, I am happy with my weight loss at this point in the challenge, Again for the second time ... I'M LOSING WEIGHT FOR MYSELF, NOT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE. So screw your gold star, give me a chocolate chip cookie and Captain Morgan's. I can be a smartass also.

You must have alot of time on your hands if you are checking out my Myspace page also, either that or you are a stalker. I will again tell you, if you do not like what I write or if you do not like what you see, than don't return to my blog. I could care less if you read my blog.

hello

Wow Girl, You don't need that. Your positive, so let all that negativity baby mama drama go. Hahah, Your strong and.. LOVEYOUUUU.
