Days 1 and 2

Friday, April 18, 2014

Lol so yesterday was the first day of my 45 day challenge and I'm already slacking on blogging. But I did eat clean and get a workout in. I was super busy trying to get things together for my move comingup. I spent the morning submitting forms to the bank, packing, and playing with my son. Then I got a short nap and worked out before going to work 7pm to 7am. I work again at 7pm tonight too. So after work I'm going straight to the gym. I'm gonna do 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training abs. Then I'll be trying to sleep a little and dealing with more moving stuff. Ugh I'll be so glad when this is over!

I think I'm ready for another challenge!

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

I want to go 45 days of clean eating and working out. If I start tomorrow, it will end May 31st.
45 days will be the longest streak I've ever done without one slip up and I'm a little bit nervous. Easter is right around the corner.. and so is Easter dinner and Easter candy. I bought my son a ton of cool toys for his Easter basket, and just a few pieces of candy. So I'm not worried about that tempting me, but I know my mom is also putting a basket together for him. Knowing my mom, I can guarantee it will be full of candy. And I'm sure it will be the good stuff lol. I'm just going to have to say no to the junk. Chocolate is my weakness, but I'm going to put it up in the cupboard out of sight. I'm also going to be the main of honor in my cousin's wedding which will take place during this 45 days. So I'm just going to have to be extra careful about making good choices. It's gonna be tough with the bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, and the actual wedding food. I'm going to have to make smart choices and be prepared. Oh, and we're moving in the next 2 weeks. LOL. Maybe I didn't pick the best time to start another challenge, but life happens. I can't let it get in the way of my goals. If I can make it through this 45 days, I'll know nothing can stop me. I'm ready to make a promise to myself and KEEP IT! I'm going to try to write a short little blog every day, or at least every other to keep me accountable and on track. I've got this!


April 1st

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

I feel like this year is flying! I haven't been getting very far with my weight loss goals for the year yet, but the scale is trending downward. So I'll take it. The year started off really rough for me but lately I've been back to my old routines of working out and eating right. And the weather is warming up which makes me SOOO HAPPY! I love being outside. It's actually supposed to be in the 50s and 60s here all week, so I've planned my workouts to be outside pretty much of the week. Here's what I've got going on:

Today: Run 2 miles, walk 2 miles.
Abs/back: 30 minutes
Fun walk this evening with a friend- 3 miles

Wednesday: Running the stairs at the McKinley Monument-30 minutes
Walk: 30 minutes
ST arms/shoulders: 30 minutes

Thursday: Run: 2 miles
Sprint intervals: 1 mile
ST legs/glutes: 30 minutes

Friday: Gym- Elliptical: 30 minutes
Abs/back: 30 minutes

Saturday: Walk outside: 60 minutes
ST arms/shoulders: 30 minuts

Sunday: Run: 2.5miles
Walk: 2.5 miles
Glutes: 30 minutes

I'm gonna work on my meal plans for the week later today. No matter what, I'll for sure be tracking and staying within my calorie range. I feel like the old me is totally back. I'm ready to go hard again, NO EXCUSES!

Ugh I slipped up! Starting over...

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Ok so last night I slipped up. I hate to even admit to that but it is what it is. I was feeling super exhausted, and didn't want to cook. My husband suggested pizza and I went with it. Then I felt super depressed and we ate doughnuts too. I don't know why I do that. I know eating this way is no good. It makes me feel sluggish and depressed. But I still did it. All I can do now is move on from it. I'm so sick of feeling like a failure. I keep self sabotaging and I just want to be done with it. Enough is enough. I'm starting over with my count of days that I'm eating clean. I'm tired of making excuses and I'm tired of feeling like a failure. So here we go again. Day 1. I'm planning on going to the gym twice today. Once very soon when I'm done with this blog, and then again at 130pm to meet a friend. I'm going to try to undo some of the damage.

    You were doing so well! It's really okay that you had some pizza and a donut. It was ONE meal out of the last 18 (?) days! You probably wouldn't have given the pizza a second thought 20 days ago, right? It's way too much to ask yourself to be perfect.

In any case, it might help to have some homemade meals in the freezer, like soup or stuffed peppers or something. Then just heat and serve - no prep and cooking required, and no guilt afterward :)

Enjoy your workout but don't beat yourself up over last night! Just drink lots of water to help flush out the sodium!
