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! :)

Staying Strong

Saturday, November 02, 2013

So I've been super busy lately but I've been doing awesome with my workouts. Not so much with my eating. Too much candy and too much junk. I've maintained my weight loss and even dropped a pound in the past week but for the amount I'm working out, it's a shame I haven't lost more. I need to get back to my clean eating plan and stop with all the junk. I just have a terrible problem with stress eating. Ugh. I'm a work in progress.

I've planned out all of my workouts for the next 2 weeks and I'm super excited about that. This week here are my plans:

Sunday- Run 3.75 miles, then walk 3.75 miles.
Monday- 90 minutes full body strength training
Tuesday- 60 minutes high intensity interval training including sprints and intense intervals on the elliptical
Wednesday- 60 minutes easy walk for recovery
Thursday- 90 minutes full body strength training
Friday- Run 3.75 miles then walk 3.75 miles
Saturday- 30 minutes sprint intervals, 30 minutes walking at 15%incline 3.5mph

I'm going to do my best to eat totally clean and cut out all the junk. I'm ready to see the scale go down!

    a lot of times stress eating can be worse when we don't play. Look at that nice workout plan you made. could you possibly do that for a meal plan for the week? If you fail to plan, plan to fail. Also, if you can pre make some cut up fruits or veggies in the fridge this might be helpful for you to munch on when you're stressed.

What will help you the most is finding the root of your stress, and fixing it.

Loving Running!

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

I've been focusing on getting my run on and I'm loving it! I did another 3.5 miles nonstop and took 2 and a half minutes off my first time. While I'm running I don't actually always love it, but I love the way I feel after. So accomplished. 2014 is gonna be an awesome year. I'm doing a 10k nonstop no matter what. Can't wait.

I've been doing really well all week eating healthy too. I can't wait for my weigh in at the end of the week. I'm hoping to see a good loss. We'll see!
