I have only worked out 5 days out of the last 15. I'm going to put that behind.
There's 16 days left in October. There's 21 days left until I have to take my fitness test. From here on out, I must do something everyday. Whether it be a workout video, intervals, push ups, sit ups, etc... I WILL DO SOMETHING EVERYDAY!!!! It doesn't necessarily have to be a full hard core workout but I need to do something EVERDAY!!!! Tonight is push ups and sit ups!! I WILL DO THIS!!!!
I've been doing A LOT better on my eating. I still have my moments of weakness and I give in to sweets. I know I'm allowed to eat it but I need to remember to not eat it all in one serving. PORTION CONTROL on sweets!!
My military fitness test is in less than 4 weeks and I am nowhere close to being prepared. I need to keep up with my fitness and eating habits so I don't have to stress about this every time it comes around. It would seriously makes things so much more easier so there's no reason why I shouldn't make the change.
I'll be the BIG 2-5 in Feb 2012!! I want to feel great and look great when I hit this age. I don't want my weight to be stressing me out. I have to take care of my body and have it at it's best so I can be prepared for when it's time to have more kiddos ;]
April 28, 2012, I will be graduating from nursing school!! I don't want to be hiding under my gown because I feel fat. I want to be able to look at my pictures and say, "Damn! I look good!!" And I feel that since I'm becoming a nurse to take care of people that I need to take care of myself too.
I already have 3 weddings to attend next summer. Who wouldn't want to look HOTT at a wedding?! I want to actually feel comfortable in a sexy dress! I don't want to wear black since it makes me look slimming. I want to wear a bright, fun color but feel fabulous in it!!
One of the three weddings will be in St. Johns, Virgin Islands. I don't want to feel huge in my bathing suit. Now, I know I won't be in a two piece but I want to feel great in my one piece. I want to be able to wear cute sundresses on the beach and not feel self conscious around others.
Overall, I need to change to a healthy lifestyle to better myself. This will help in so many ways. I WILL DO THIS!!!!
"If you miss a turn, what does your GPS say? Does it tell you to give up on getting there or that you're lazy? Does it beat you up over it? NO. It tells you to turn around as soon as possible. And losing weight and following a weight loss plan are the same-- if you veer off track, don't keep going that way, don't beat yourself up over it, etc. Just get back on track."
It's time to get back on track for GOOD!! I can only blame myself for getting off track and staying off track. I need to stop being so wishy washy with my workouts and eating. I need to stay consistent. Consistency is key and that will show results. I need to be patient. Just because I don't see results after a week doesn't mean I need to give up and beat myself up over it. Weight loss doesn't happen over night. It takes time and I need to friggin realize that. I need to remember why I want to lose this weight and get toned and live a healthy lifestyle. So here's to starting over again. I WILL DO THIS!!
1. STOP MAKING EXCUSES!!
2. Start C25k
3. Rotate 30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, and 6 week 6 pack throughout the week.
4. WATER!! WATER!! WATER!!
5. Only eat out 1-2x a week
6. Look up a new recipe every week
7. Eat in moderation and track food
8. Lose 1/2 - 1 lb weekly
9. DO NOT BEAT MYSELF UP IF I DONT SEE RESULTS RIGHT AWAY!! JUST KEEP GOING!!
So, I've noticed that lately when I do my workouts I wait until the end of the day to do them all. THIS IS BAD!!!! I have come to realize that I need to spread them out because by the end of the day I don't want to do them all and I'm not doing them with full force like I should be. I have so much free time during the days that I don't work so there should be no excuse why I can't do some kind or workout every few hours. As of right now I'm doing Couch to 5k. I restarted at Week 3 instead of 4. I'm also doing The 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge. And today I started Jillian Michaels 6 Week 6 Pack and OMG!!! I'm pretty sure I'll be hurting in the morning!!
And then eating...I know what I'm supposed to do but I have yet to take charge in it... grrrrrrrrr!!!!
It's already July!!!! I have 8 weeks until school starts back up and then the extra free time will be GONE!! The scale still hasn't been moving for me BUT I am definitely a better runner than I was when I first started C25k and I'm not buldging out of my summer clothes. So more positives than negatives! I've been sick since the last week of June so I haven't been working out hardcore. I was at least going on walks with my daughter and the puppy.
So here's the plan for July:
Restart at Wk4 of C25k since the sickness interefered - ASH WILL DO THIS!!
Restart the 28 Day Bootcamp Challenge. Idk why I stopped after a week?? Also, make up an at home strength training program. If anyone has any they'd like to share please let me know!! - ASH WILL DO THIS!!
Measure & weigh all foods! This is my biggest STRUGGLE!! I'm pretty sure if I got this under control I'd actually see the scale move. - ASH WILL DO THIS!!
Try and not get discouraged if the scale isn't moving. I would love for the scale to go down but I'd really like to be more tone than anything. I'd rather be 160 lbs and tone than 145 lbs and flabby. Of course it'd be great to be 145 lbs AND tone lol - ASH WILL DO THIS!!
Thanks to all my Sparkies that have been sticking with me! Yall are great and hope everyone has a GREAT July!!!!
