Tracked EVERYTHING yesterday yes even my glass of moscato!

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Tracked EVERYTHING yesterday yes even my glass of moscato! and still managed to stay on the lower end of my recommended calorie intake! emoticon
At first I thought the tracking was a little time consuming but after a little while it became easier. I plan to track everyday this week and see how it goes. I'm feeling a little sore today but not too bad. I went to zumba yesterday and it was great as usual...zumba again tonight. I also did a ab dvd which I blame for my soreness this am and did the recumberent bike at the gym for 15 min while I waited for the zumba class to begin, while reading the hunger games!! My endurance has improved so much I can hardly believe it! emoticon
Do you ever feel like your body is craving a workout?? Well that's how I felt yesterday. I can't believe those words just came out of MY mouth but it's so true hopefully I can keep the momentum going LOL. emoticon It must be the weather I emoticon spring!

    emoticon Sounds like you had an awesome Monday!!! I agree that sometimes tracking is a pain, but you can't argue with the numbers when they're right in front of you - lol!! I wish I could say my body craved a workout . . . . but alas, not so much!! You're a great motivation -- keep at it.

    Yay! I'm so happy and excited for you! Tracking REALLY helps me a LOT. And pretty quickly I just got into a habit and now I track throughout the day without even thinking about it.

And yes, I totally crave workouts too sometimes - especially if I'm anxious or stressed or frustrated. But sometimes I just feel like doing something active! It's a pretty cool (though a bit shocking for me) feeling!!!

Sounds like a great day :) Hope the rest of the week is as great!

It has to happen THIS week!!! If it doesn't I may lose it!!

Sunday, March 25, 2012

As you may or may not know I have been really really really wanting to get out of the 140's for quite a while now...I has got to happen this week because I'm starting to feel frustrated. The day I gave birth to my son I weighed 140 lbs that was 6 yrs ago and have been packing on the lbs ever since so thats why this little milestone is huge for me....Next week my son will be on spring break so I know I will not have as much time at the gym. So this week I will give it 110% and hopefully it will happen!!

You have to see it in perspective too, the scale it's not as important as how you feel, and how you look, if you do it great, but if for some reason you don't do it this week, you'll do it "other" day.

"Try" that's the key work, try hard, but God will always have the last word.

I hope you get it done.

    My gym bag has sneakers, gym clothes, hair bands, iPod w/ earbuds and armband, sometimes my Kindle if I plan on getting on the elliptical, a fresh towel from home (don't like the gyms tiny ones), and toiletry items because I go on my lunch break and HAVE to shower and freshen up before coming back to work.
I am waiting to hit my next goal so that I can get a new gym bag because mine now is just an old backpack that I literally STUFF everything in....

    Hmm, when I used to go I'd always have socks (in case I was wearing sandals to work), shoes, deoderant, ponytail holders, lock (for locker), ipod, small towel, sports bra, t-shirt and workout pants, bottle of water or powerade zero or something I can't remember what it was called(room temperature is better than nothing - I ALWAYS had one in there), some sort of "bar" to eat on the drive home (it was a 35 minute drive and I was working out after work. I was hungry and ready for dinner so I needed some sort of backup!) I had a big gym bag and it wasn't even full LOL

The Girl Who Never Learned To Swim...:(

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Yup I'm the girl who never learned to swim, I want to swim so bad...When you walk into my gym the pool is the first thing you see and I always see people swimming so gracefully:( Makes me sad that I never learned...is it too late to learn?? I know swimming is a great way to burn calories which makes me want it even more LOL. One thing I know I can do is get my son into swimming lessons asap that way he will learn young. emoticon

    I wish you lived in Lowell, MA. There is a women there who teaches beginners swimming at the Y. She is amazing. She can get petrified toddlers to jump in the deep end. She can get adults to relax and trust that she won't let them sink the first time they try to float. She can get people to put their faces in the water. She is amazing. You should learn to swim. It's great exercise and it will be such a boost to your confidence.

    I was 25 and 260+ lbs when I took my first swim lesson.
I was at ease in water, but didn't know any swim technique and here I am now, 5 years later and I swim everyday!
A lot of public pools offer master swimming classes for every level. It's worth it, take my word for it!

    Don't be self conscious - there are people older than all of us that never learned to read but are doing it now. There will be many other people in the same situation. I can almost guarantee you won't be the first adult to come in and take swimming lessons. Most places have different age categories. Oh, and think of all the grandparents taking college classes with 18 year olds. It's your life. You only live once. If you want to do it, don't let anything stop you!!! If nothing else, look stuff up online (you can find detailed information about ANYTHING online it seems) and go practice the steps at some public pool or something later this year when the place isn't very busy.

    @ timeiichange, yikes that is scary! I don't think I ever had a scary expirence like that...or maybe I did and don't remember.

@fixed531, I actually thought about that but I think I would be too self conscious.

    Hi there. I know the feeling. I'm 28 and I also don't know how to swim. I enjoy being in the water but I have a fear once my feet don't touch the ground. When I was about 6 I was taken by a wave and almost drown and since then I have to feel the ground with my feet which is why I haven't learned. I haven't tried either. I say go for it...give it a shot!

Is it me or is Fitness EVERYWHERE???

Saturday, March 17, 2012

So as I was channel surfing this morning I noticed how many different infomercials for weight loss products there are!! Anything from Zumba, Brazil Butt, P90X,Jillian Micheals Revolution and many more I think it is great but how does one CHOOSE a program with so many options? Anyway that was just a random thought I had this morning I guess it doesn't really matter wich one you choose as long as you are doing something!
