PAWSE UP ( Week 12 )

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

OK, last week went really well. WI at 169.8 Ready to kick it up a notch this week and finish BLC off Strong. RRROOAAAARRR!!! This weeks PAWSE will be:

Plan/ Prepare
will continue planning meals out. will continue preparing meals on off days for rest of the week. Has helped tremendously with work and eating right. not as rushed, more time to workout. They have posted overtime for this Sat like last week. Got my first shift job so once I get on it will help with sleep.

ACT
Have been using both nutrition and fitness trackers. Pushing myself to try to get in an extra workout here and there. Have been watching deficient. First week was way off. This week was a lot closer. Have really came a long way with trackers. This weeks deficit was in the 10,400, which is right in line for the most part with my 2.6 lb loss

WRITE
Have got my exercise bike and have used it several times. Really like it and it is as quiet as they claimed it was. Still need to get another kettle bell. Bought my bike this week. rode it a little outside lastnight. Still doing my best to try to keep body confused.

SET a non scale and Scale goal.
My non scale goal would be to continue eating healthy.
my scale goal is to loose 2 - 3 lbs this week. Realistically I need to be at 1 1/2 to 2.

Execute
catching those extra minutes whenever I can. This past week worked in some unplanned extra walking(Walk, Walk,Walk, Walk) with Leslie Sansone. and some Hip Hop Abs and some bicycling.Hope this week goes a little better as things turn to normal again. Getting a lot more sleep now. Have adjusted to days very well now. We are in our last 2 weeks of BLC. So now it is time to finish Off this challenge strong. Will try to push a little harder and finish above my goal at 169.
That was my last weeks goal. Hit that this week. This is our last week and I want to have my best week yet. Last week had 1097 minutes with a 2.6 lb loss. Will be hard to top that, but I shall try.

To be honest, while I've seen the acronym PAWSE I never knew what it stood for. I'm really glad you spelled it out for me. Taking advantage of that format may make it easier for me to get back into the swing of things, especially once I can start doing my rehab.

PAWSE UP ( Week 11 )

Thursday, March 27, 2014

OK, last week went better then I figured it would, down 1.2 lbs. Feeling a whole lot better, but still have a cough. Ready to kick it up a notch this week RRROOAAAARRR!!! This weeks PAWSE will be:

Plan/ Prepare
will continue planning meals out. will continue preparing meals on off days for rest of the week. Has helped tremendously with work and eating right. not as rushed, more time to workout.

ACT
Have been using both nutrition and fitness trackers. Pushing myself to try to get in an extra workout here and there. Have been watching deficient. First week was way off. This week was a lot closer. Have really came a long way with trackers. This weeks deficit was in the 8900 range, but I know not real accurate considering I was sick part of it.

WRITE
Have got my exercise bike and have used it several times. Really like it and it is as quiet as they claimed it was. Still to get another kettle bell, but the tightwad in me is fighting with the common sense me. The 25lb bell is cheaper than the 20 lb bell. So can I go from a 15 to a 25 with out to much trouble. No one local has the 25 lb bell so I can't go try it. I think I will try a 25 lb dumbbell and see how that feels. Still doing my best to try to keep body confused.

PAWSE UP ( Week 10)

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

OK, last week went better then I figured it would, down 1.2 lbs. Have been sick since Sunday. Can't seem to shake it. Really cutting into my workout time. RRROOAAAARRR!!! This weeks PAWSE will be:

Have really came a long way with trackers. This weeks deficit was in the 11,065. Way out of line for what I lost.

WRITE
Need to shake this cold so I can get back to some good workouts. Got my exercise bike the other day and still haven't used it. Need to get another kettle bell. Still doing my best to try to keep body confused.

Hope this week goes a little better as things turn to normal again. Getting a lot more sleep now. Have adjusted to days just need to get rid of this cold!

PAWSE UP ( week 9 )

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

OK, last week was not a real good week. not sure what all effected it but was not good. Ending up down .4 pounds but all week was a struggle. Plus changed shifts so was trying to change sleep schedule as well. RRROOAAAARRR!!! This weeks PAWSE will be:

Plan/ Prepare
will continue planning meals out. will continue preparing meals on off days for rest of the week. Has helped tremendously with work and eating right. not as rushed, more time to workout.

Have really came a long way with trackers. This weeks deficit was in the 11,065. Way out of line for what I lost.

WRITE
Last weekwas a struggle. Everytime I got on scale I showed a gain. Know I had a big loss the week before and changed my work/sleep schedule. Going to keep looking for something new just for the change up. Got My Hip Hop Abs videos and started them. Loved them and felt them. Have added a kettle bell workout and have ordered exercise bike.doing my best to try to keep body confused.

SET a non scale and Scale goal.

    Any time the sleep schedule changes, it's tough. Nice job on the weight loss despite the struggle!

    You've been posting some huge losses week after week, so it makes sense that once or twice (and especially during a week where you're completely changing your sleep cycle) the scale is going to under-report.
I think you still had a good week, even though the scale didn't put up the numbers. Your body still got stronger and tighter this week for sure.
