Home gym

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

I've started thinking about a home gym. I will keep my membership for now - if anything it helps me stay focused lol

But I'm wondering if moving from a "gym" frame of mind to a "fitness is everywhere" frame of mind is something for me. Would it be easier and more "do-able" for me if I was able to go out to the garage or hit the pavement?

My concern is timing. I would have mornings or evenings. I can't get up in the morning or the baby will wake up. Evenings I am so tired. What could I do to be less tired? The baby goes down around 8, I'm out of the room at 9-ish. Dinner is usually ready then. I sit on the couch and eat, watch tv, and go to sleep by 11-11:30.

What if I eat a salad before the baby goes down, like 7? What if I save my dinner for a big lunch the next day? Something to try.

    I have a stationary exercise bike that's in our second bedroom that's used as a den, and I love working out at home, whenever I feel like doing it. It's comfortable to be, but then I do not have a baby as you do, so I'm not help there. But maybe having things at home to use would be easier because if the baby isn't taking up your time, and you have some time you could get it done, without leaving the house, and still keep up with baby (: Good luck!!!

Progress must be made!!!

Monday, July 22, 2013

I'm back after a week hiatus. Whew....my mantra for today - progress, not perfection. I love it. I could obsess over my poor week, or I could just move on. I am doing the latter.

SO, this week I am going to bite the bullet and accept nobody is going to watch the baby while I go to the gym so I can listen to music. No music. Big fat Buuuuuuh. Ah me. The sacrifices we make for our little ones :). The bright side is I will focus on my form.

And - I will recognize now that while I didn't keep track of calories on spark last week I mentally kept track every day, going over 300 calories two days. No binging.

This week I am über motivated to continue!!! Yay!!!!

This week

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Boy this last week was patchy. Only two runs, two burpee challenge days, missed meal logging, and overall unhealthier food choices. Four nights of approximately 3 hrs a night will do that I guess.

I'm using sleeping aids right now. I resolve to get back on track this week. My weight is fluctuating in the low 180's, but I am losing inches.


Back from San Diego - how I did....

Monday, July 08, 2013

Not good, but not horrible lol

I didn't stick to the plan, track my food, or exercise....however, I didn't binge, wasn't excessively eating sugar, and I didn't stress. I learned some lessons but I'm not beating myself up either.

I came home and weighed myself - up about two lbs. Not bad!

We came home yesterday and I didn't track my food, didnt exercise. I worked out today and will do my best with tracking my food tonight. I feel that not stressing is allowing myself to enjoy my new habits, which is making it my preferred, enjoyed lifestyle....which feels weird, but good.

Back to "real life" tomorrow - which is good! I love my life :))) this week I am looking forward to trying out some simple healthy recipes - green smoothies and no-bake energy bites! I'll be trying kale and chia seeds for the first time, which is cool.


Working myself up!

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Today I can confidently say I will stay on track in San Diego. I will have a light breakfast of egg and toast (300 cals), fruits for snacks (100), fish tacos for lunch (600), and I will keep dinner under 600 cals, including a cocktail. Do-able! Also, I will need to fit in two runs, so there's that. Our rental has a gym, and I can do burpees anywhere, so no excuses there.

Oh man - a Beard Papas is opening up at our local mall. Right near the kids playground. I LOVE cream puffs. Dang it!!! I read they are 220 cals....not horrific for a treat....but man.
