Week 3

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Today was my weigh in day. I lost 2lbs last week. I was hoping for 3 but I had a huge loss the previous week so I'm assuming my body is balancing it all out. Anyways a loss is a loss and I'm excited. I was crazy busy last week so didn't get to blog much, but it went well. Took my son to boo at the zoo, and he's been trick or treating. I'm happy to say I've been avoiding the candy. I actually left his Halloween candy at my moms. He can have it as a treat when he goes there. He's 2 so he doesn't mind lol. And it keeps it out of my face. This week I am going to try to blog a little more. I'm sticking with the 2.5 miles for another day or 2. I want to take another minute or so off my time. Probably mid week I'll start doing 2.75. Then next week it's on to 3 miles. I've decided that for winter I'll probably stick to running 3 miles and not trying to go further. I don't wanna be outside any longer than I have to freezing my butt. I hate treadmill running though. So my goal is going to be just doing the 3 miles all winter long and getting faster at it. Then in spring I'll start increasing my distance again. I want to do a 10k next year. I also want to do an obstacle run or two next year. I'm bummed that I wasted so much of this year making no progress at all. But it is what it is. All I can do is move forward now. I know it seems a little crazy to be starting a serious diet when the holidays are coming around, however I can not stand to be fat another minute. Lol. Holidays or not holidays, I'm doing this. I'm ready to reach my goal weight and stay there.

    It sounds like you have a great plan in place. Keep up the great work!

I don't know if you have a gym membership or are able to get to a mall or public gym at like a high school, but it may be good to go running or even walking at one of these places on the really cold days.

Week 2, Day1

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Well my first day of week 2 is going great. I went on a run today. I ran 2.5 miles again, and took a minute off my previous time! I also did 30 minutes of strength training on my lower body. I'm going to be sore tomorrow, so my workout for tomorrow will just be an easy walk. I'm gonna go 3mph for 60 minutes. Then later I'll get some added walking in because I'm taking my little man to Boo at the Zoo. Should be fun. I've been sticking to my healthy diet as well. It's only been a week and I can already tell a huge difference in the way I feel. I have so much more energy. My goal this week is to lose at least 2lbs, but hopefully 3. We'll see how it goes!

Week 1 Results!

Thursday, October 23, 2014

My first week of being back on track went great. I weighed in and was actually 3lbs less than my goal weight for the week! I'm so excited. I stayed in my calorie range every single day and ate super clean. I've also been been exercising like crazy. I'm up to running 2.5miles at a time. This week my goal is to run the same distance, but just in a faster time. I plan to run every other day, then do other forms of cardio in between. I'm also going to do strength training 5-6 days this week. I feel so good to be back on track. I'm ready to get back to where I was, and go even further!

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
