Halfway Through Week 1!

Monday, October 20, 2014

So I am a little over half way through my first week of being back on track. I snuck in a weigh in and I'm already at my goal for the week. So as long as I eat right the next few days and continue working out, I think I will pass my goal! That's exciting. I feel like I am totally back on track. I have been working out every day, and eating super healthy. Today I went grocery shopping. I loaded up on tons of healthy stuff, then spent about an hour washing and cutting up fruits and veggies for the week. I also cooked some grilled chicken breasts in advance for my meals the next 2 days. I'm working two 12 hour night shifts back to back, so it's nice to be prepared. Today I ran 2.25 miles and walked 2.75miles for a total of 5 miles. I'm happy with that. Tomorrow the plan is to walk on the treadmill at the gym at 15% incline for 30 minutes, then come home and do a core strength training dvd for 35 mins. This DVD is killer. I'll definitely be feeling it the next day. It's so nice to be sore again! Tuesday I am going to run 2.5 miles. Then do strength training on my legs and glutes. I want to work up to running a 5k by November 15th, so I am really going to have to push myself in my runs to increase my distance. As of now, it seems very doable. I'm excited! emoticon


No Excuses, No Explanations, No Regrets! Restarting My Journey.

Thursday, October 16, 2014

I saw that line in a quote yesterday while I was browsing Facebook, and it really inspired me. I've been absent from Sparkpeople for quite a while. I also haven't been trying very hard to lose weight, and therefore, haven't been successful. There are tons of explanations and excuses that I could make, and I have plenty of regrets, but I've decided I'm not going to dwell on the past and what I should/shouldn't have done. I am ready to restart my journey, and I plan to live by that line. I am done making excuses. I want to eat well, exercise, and live my best life possible, so I have no regrets. Yesterday I went running. I only made it 2 miles, but that's the farthest I've gone in probably 5-6 months. After running I walked another 2 miles. I'm excited to get back into running regularly and see what I can do. I want to lose the rest of this weight once and for all!

I'll be heading to sleep soon, but when I wake up in the morning I'm planning on going to the gym. I'm going to do 30 walking at a 15% incline and 30 minutes strength training upper body. emoticon


Small Update

Monday, December 16, 2013

The fast few days have been good. My husband and I have been eating super healthy and sticking to our workout plan. We went on a run/walk for 5 and a half miles today outside. I'm guessing we burned some extra calories just trying to trudge through the snow. It was freezing but it felt good to be out in nature.

The plan for tomorrow is to do 30 minutes strength training abs/back and 45 minutes of hard cardio. I'm gonna run a mile as fast as possible on the treadmill and then do some sprint intervals. I'm ready to get my sweat on. My meal plan is gonna include some left over grilled chicken and fajita vegetables that I'll put on a salad instead of tortillas. I have some fresh black berries for snack and I bought some veggies to cut up for snack as well. Tomorrow is going to be a good day and one day closer to my goals!

So I'm a little late posting my update for he 12th, but day 1 was a success. I did 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill at 15% incline and then 30 minutes of strength training on my legs and glutes. I followed my meal plan and stayed in my calorie range. I had tons of fruits and veggies along with some lean protein and good carbs and I feel better already. I already have my meal plan and workout plan made out for today too. I'm happy to be back on track. No more excuses.


I Need to Get Back on Track

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

So the past month has been rough on me. I have been going through a ton of personal stress, which I don't want to get into. I'm hoping it's all resolved now. I haven't been working out and eating the way that I want to and I haven't lost a single pound in the past 4 weeks. Ugh! At least I haven't gained but I was really hoping to be in Onederland by the end of this year. That isn't going to happen no matter how hard I try. emoticon

I'll get there, just not in the time line that I wanted.

My husband and I have made a pledge to eat 100% clean and healthy every day until Christmas Eve. That night we will splurge a little while we celebrate with my side of the family. We are both working Christmas day so things will be back to business as usual and we will be eating totally clean until New Years Eve. After that we will re-evaluate our goals and our progress. I still want to lose, my hubby wants to gain muscle.

I am going to try to write at least a little mini blog daily to keep myself accountable. I need to detox and get all of this excess sugar and junk out of my body. Tomorrow will start as day one. I'm ready to get back on track!!

    Hey girl. Sorry to hear that you have had a rough month. It happens to the best of us! The great news is that you have stayed committed to getting fit. Look at no weight gain during a rough time as an early Christmas gift and take a giant step forward. You've got this! :)
