19 days

Posted: June 28, 2011 in Misc

Well,…

I was going strong. I joined the gym. Went Monday through Thursday. I swam all those days, did stair steppers and weights and then came home and did JM. Then on Friday(day 19) I went out of town and decided since I would be walking a tremendous amount, I would not bring JM with me. I took yesterday off because I was exhausted. But I plan to start my journey again.

I did have results from my 19 days. I lost 2 inches from my bust. 2 inches from my belly, 1.5 inches from my butt, 1/2 inch from my arms and 1/2 inch from my thighs. I am also down 3.8 pounds. Not too bad for not being on a food diet.

I think in order to lose some more though, I am going to have to be on some sort of diet, even if its just weight watchers. I have been eating considerably less since I began. I am simply not as hungry as I used to be. Must be all the activity. I am going to figure out my next step in this journey. Will I start again from day 1, will I try something totally different?.. I honestly do not know at this given moment, but I will ponder it.

One Week Makes One Strong

Posted: June 12, 2011 in Misc

Today I completed my 7th day of the shred. so I am 7/30 into it.

I “walk” monday through friday at a 3.5 incline and 3.5 speed. I will tell those of you out there who are thinking, that is easy, nothing to it… You would be surprised. I actually burn SO much more and get a way better work out doing that then I did when I was running. I work more muscules and my heartrate is just going so much more. I am going to stick with this for a little while longer and see how it goes.

I plan on starting a new endeavor tomorrow. I am not exactly sure if I am going to officially do it yet, but if I do, I think it would not hurt. I am planning on joining the gym and swimming a bit and using a few machines I do not have at home. It would normally be a waste of money for me but the gym is running a special, so for $20 a month I think I can handle that. Tomorrow I also plan on starting two a days. Morning workout and evening workout. This I am not so sure about. I really value my sleep and I need to work on going to bed earlier so that this wont present a problem. I guess I will see how I feel when 6am rolls around.

I also decided I was not going to weigh myself or measure myself until the end of the 30 day challenge. No in between check ins. I dont want to get bummed if I dont see results written on the paper and I dont wanna get cocky if I do. I want to take it one day at a time. I have been feeling great about the fact that I have started to make this change.

That will do it for my weekly check in. Check back with you all next week!

Total Defeat

Posted: June 6, 2011 in Uncategorized

I like to think of myself as a strong person.Physically and mentally, so its hard to admit when I have been defeated.

Weight gain is no fun and I am on that bandwagon right now. I no longer feel like hiding under my clothes and numerous layers. I was suposed to start my 30 day challenge of running for 3 miles monday thru friday on June 1st, and guess what. It didnt happen. I got an hour promotion to full time and have been exhausted every day.

Today I told myself enough was enough. So although a few days late, my 30 day challenge has began. I am making a few adjustments however. I am doing the 3o  day shred and am going to pair it with cardio. I dont care if I walk jog or run, the important thing is getting my heartrate up.

So here goes. Day 1/30 done.

Now if I could only change my eating habits over night.

Wish me luck.!.I will check back in a few days.

Starting June 1st I am going to challenge myself to run 3 miles monday thru friday. I am hoping to complete this and lose some weight or shape up. I don’t want to make excuses. No matter how long it takes me to run it, how slow I go, how sore or tired I am, I am going to complete it. Thats 66 miles in the month of June. So join me as I count down the miles. Starting Wednesday June 1st.

2day

Posted: April 12, 2011 in Misc

I didnt get to blog yesterday because my computer is not working. I am trying to troubleshoot the problems(s). That does not mean things are going bad. I had a good orientation yesterday and a great first day of work. I am really excited to go back tomorrow! There is so much opportunity for me. I am excited to learn the program and help out where needed. I feel really good about this and my future at the company. I sure hope that it lasts longer than its supposed to!

It’s A Beautiful Day!

Posted: April 10, 2011 in Misc, Positive

Sunday, what a beautiful day. It is 70 outside. My windows are open and I am Spring cleaning my bedroom. Clean sheets, clean clothing, a little rearranging and some pitching of junk and old stuff.

The breeze feels great!

Tomorrow is orientation. I am a little nervous but I am ready!

Its amazing how nice weather makes you feel so happy! This is going to do wonders for my already new and improved attitude towards life!

HAVE AN AMAZING AFTERNOON!

 

Thought this would be silly. I was so hungry last night and I craved a lot of stuff but didnt know what I wanted. I just was thinking of all the things that are supposed to be eaten in portion and moderation that I could polish off in a day.

I will add to the list throughout the day.

1)Bottles of juice (applejuice, orange,grapefruit, fruit punch,cranberry…)

2)Jars of applesauce

3)containers of yogurt

4)Ben and jerry ice creams

5)candy bars/bags of candy

6)bags of chips and salsa

7)pizza

8)cherry cheesecakes

9)frosted sugar cookies from bakery

 

What is on your list of things you can eat!!!

I will add to mine when I think of more!

I mean I am just being honest. I dont think I would regularly be able to eat these things every day. But on the occassion it could happen. Yuummmm this list makes me hungry!

I am going shopping today for a new work outfit!

Have a great Saturday!
