Been kicking butt and feeling good!

Friday, July 18, 2014

This past week I have been killing it with eating and exercise. I've been working out on my treadmill, slow and steady so that I don't get burnt out. I took yesterday off to rest because I was seriously worn out and took a nap as soon as I got home. Today instead of just my 30 minute goal I did 2 30 minute stints on the treadmill. I've burnt 1556 calories since Monday, and I haven't gone over my calories once. Usually I'm around 1100 by the end of the day.

I haven't gotten a lot of water in today but I plan on chugging some here in a little while because I am THIRSTY. Just wanted to fill you in on my awesome week. Fingers crossed that I keep it up and I hope I see my hard work pay off on the scale. If it doesn't, then oh well, it's probably water or something because I've been doing AWESOME!!

See ya later!!

And I'm back!!! (again, lol)

Sunday, July 13, 2014

I have a mission. I want to try to lose 10 pounds a month. Except this month is halfway through, so I'll settle for 5 pounds for July. I've been working on getting my eating under control, and this coming week I'm going to fit in exercise.

I have scheduled my exercise every day this week. Monday and Wednesday I work a little longer but my kids should be napping when I get home so I can fit in a 30 minute walk on the treadmill after my husband leaves for work (about 5 minutes after I get home). Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays I get off earlier and have a few hours before my husband has to leave for work. The plan those days is to go to a nearby park to walk around to spice up my surroundings while burning a sweat. If the weather doesn't permit that or I don't feel like it, then I will go home and exercise instead. Saturdays I get off early and my husband doesn't work so that's a day where I have a lot of free time, although I usually going grocery shopping right after work.

That's the plan. Eat smart, start cardio. I am 234 pounds, with barely any exercise at the moment. I gotta start slower so I don't burn out. I have an appt with my new general practitioner on the 24th. I'll make sure she gives me a thumbs up for my journey and see if there's any other problems that I don't know that are going on in my body.

Today I was conscious with my eating. I am in control. I'm at 1226 cals, 30 net carbs, 77g fat, and 66g protein. I'm aiming for low carbs but not killing myself to stay low, it's just what happened today. I'm on the low end for protein, high end for fat, and about 400 calories shy of the bottom of my caloric range. Gives me a little wiggle room for a small snack before hitting the hay tonight.


Here we go again... at least I'm not giving up completely

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Well here's another go. We bought a treadmill and I got a fitbit. I'm hoping to try to find some sort of walking program to get into but until then I'm going to try to find the motivation to at least walk a little bit.

The stress keeps getting to me from just going to work and being cooped up in the house with my son. And the stress makes it hard to find the motivation. Usually I just want to hide under a blanket. I'm hoping to find opportunities to get out of the house so I don't lose my mind. (In the middle of this blog my son decided to pour bubble solution onto the carpet so I had to clean that up. kind of a perfect example of why i just want to hide instead of workout).

I also started my online courses again. Just 14 months away from my BA in Early Childhood Education, but it seems like it's going to take forever. That is also something I have to do during the day besides wrangle a 3 year old, housework, and attempt to get exercise in. Hopefully I find a balance soon.

I need to find something that works. I'm getting to the end of my rope with failure.


I think my body actually wants me to stay fat

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

So I had ups and downs for the past month. Thankfully I'm only 1.6 pounds up since then. Well I had a plan to join the fitness program through my dad's insurance that'll allow me access to a crazy amount of gyms around the area for just $25/month. I was going to sign up Monday. Well Sunday evening I started feeling sick. Then I woke up Monday with fever and a bad sinus infection. Tuesday morning it wasn't any better, so I called off work and went to the dr and am now on antibiotics. So needless to say, I didn't sign up for the program just yet. I didn't want to sign up and then not be able to use it for a week because of being sick. So I'm waiting for all of this to clear up.

It seems like every time I have a plan something happens. Either my will power sucks with eating (happens constantly) I start a Couch to 5k program and get a blister right where my shoe hits the back of my foot that takes a week and a half to heal (happened at least twice). Or I get sick and, due to difficulty breathing, can't do much of my normal daily duties, let alone exercise. (happened at least 5 times). It just seems ridiculous. Oh well. Hoping this sinusitis clears up quick. As long as I keep getting back up after all these trip ups, there's still hope.

Did good on day 1

Friday, March 14, 2014

So I did great with eating today. Final calories at 1169. I wasn't going to workout because I was feeling tired but I decided to do a little anyway. I did just 20 minutes of the tennis Kinect game which burnt 138 calories. It's better than nothing.

I'm not going to be going to bed early tonight. I just really can't wait to see my husband tonight. I'm going to work on the early bedtime this coming week.

Proud of myself for sticking with day 1. Only a few thousand more to go lol.
