Good day

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I'm still going strong today. I'm sticking to the meal plan. I had to switch a couple of meals around in terms of times and I skipped one snack because I was talking on the phone and forgot! I wasn't hungry anyway. I lost weight today (I forgot already how much). It was enough to make me feel good! I'm very proud of myself getting in all the water I am supposed to be drinking. It is 4:00 pm and I have had 80 oz of water already.

Then there is exercise. None yet. I'm struggling with the motivation to do it. Plus I've been out doing other things and enjoying myself. I hate to pull myself away to come home and exercise. My goal is to start doing it first thing in the morning before I leave the house for anything. I really am going to get there.

Yesterday vs Today

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

I followed the Shred diet great! Even following it, I feel that I am getting too many carbs. But it is low fat and I'm getting enough protein so I guess that is where the other cals have to come from.

I did not do any exercise like I should have. But I did do about an hour of housework where I was very active.

Today I'm doing ok. I haven't eaten everything necessary yet but that is ok. They say at least eat some of it. I think I missed one snack, no big deal. I wasn't hungry anyway. My new fave lunch? Honey roasted turkey breast slices, thin slice swiss cheese, tomato slice, and a tsp of mayo. Yummm! I wish I could eat that everyday for lunch! But this diet forces you to vary your meals.

I'll be honest. I probably won't get to working out today. I have to get rid of the negative attitude. I'm going out for a while. Maybe I'll feel guilty enough to work out when I get home? Not guilty from eating or drinking, guilty for lack of exercise.

Restarting

Monday, June 17, 2013

I didn't make it very far last time. It began with a day being unprepared with food. So I said F--K it. Today is W1D1 of Shred again. So far so good.

New Journey

Thursday, June 06, 2013

Today is W1D4 of Shred. I'm finding it hard to eat my meals at the right times. Since today is my last day of work for the summer I think that I can set alarms to remind me to eat. I did the first day Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred yesterday. Wow was it rough. I am out of shape. I am so sore I could barely walk last night and today. I'm resting today because I will be out all day celebrating my last day of work! I will have my 3 light beers for the week tonight with lots of water to flush it out!

New Journey

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

My new journey started June 3, 2013. I need to lose 50 lbs (in a perfect world) but am happy with 40. I am using the Shred Revolutionary Diet by Dr. Ian Smith. I have completed W1D1 and D2. Due to lack of preparation I didn't exactly eat when I was supposed to but I did eat most of the foods and nothing off plan. I finally exercised for 45 mins. I was supposed to do 30 mins on Monday but didn't (laziness). I can say I have never drank so much water in my life! So that is definitely a positive.

I do have a problem with depression and take meds for it. I started Lexapro 10mg and gained 12 lbs in 5 weeks. I am now cutting back (after being upped to 20mg). The doctor suggested I add green tea extract for help in fat burning and losing weight. It's working a bit.

    Congrats on starting your journey. I am 1 day ahead of you on Shred and I'm loving it. Sounds like you'll do great and be proud of the exercise you food do, remember as long as you're doing something you're lapping everyone on the couch. emoticon
