Girl, Look at that Body...I WORK OUT...

Thursday, January 05, 2012

emoticon I started Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 the day before yesterday. It's a lot like 30 Day Shred but it has its differences so hopefully I don't get bored with it. And if I do, I guess I'll just suck it up and keep doing it cause I know I'll lose inches and that's what needs to be done.

emoticon I started C25K yesterday and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. After running outside this summer I'm really hating running on the treadmill. Gotta do what you gotta do though cause I don't think I'll be running in the teen degree weather here in Ohio lol.

emoticon I also found these daily workout things on Pinterest. Like yesterday was do 30 mins cardio, 25 left leg lunges, 25 right leg lunges, 30 pelvic thrusts, & 30 min deep breathing. They're different everyday of the week. Thought I'd give it a try and see how I like it :]

emoticon I've been looking up more recipes and trying to watch my portions. Now I need to actually make all the recipes I've looked up and bookmarked lol

emoticon I start my last sesmeter of Nursing school on Monday!! It felt like it's been forever but at the same time it feels like it's come so fast. I am so excited and can't wait to be a Nurse (although I feel like I still don't know a lot lol). I'm very ready to have more free time and spend more time with my family :]


Military Fitness Test - 16 days :/
25th BIRTHDAY - 5 weeks
1st Wedding - 22 weeks
2nd Wedding (St. John's, Virgin Islands) - 25 weeks
3rd Wedding - don't know the actual date yet but they were leaning towards Sept...

emoticon Losing a pound a week is not too much to ask for since I only have 20 lbs to lose. And if I do lose a pound a week then I'll be at my goal weight by the time the 1st wedding comes around :]

    Looks like alot of great things to come for you in 2012. Congrats on your nursing, my sister will graduate in August. Such a great careet and kudos to you, I know I couldn't do it, it takes special people to be a nurse. way to go.

FYI - you burn more calories outside running when the temperature is 50 degrees or less. Just remind yourself of that when it's cold outside. Yeah for more calories burned. emoticon

    Great stuff here! Also, from personal experience, don't get discouraged if the pound/week doesn't happen. When losing a smaller number sometimes it takes longer, but then you'll likely see "jumps" in increments. Like, you might not see much change for a few weeks and then all of a sudden you lose 3-4 pounds. That happens to me. Just stay focused and it WILL come off. :)

So many great dates to look forward to - and great milestones for reaching your fitness goals. Have fun!!

    Wow girl! Way to go! I'm proud of you for getting back on the exercise train. I need to do the same! I have been using the eliptical but only burning 200 calories per day. I need to burn more than that! I think your goal of 1 pound per week is very attainable and I know you are strong enough to do it! Just keep thinking about all of those plans for 2012!

December is HERE!!

Friday, December 02, 2011

I have two more weeks left in this semester...THANK GOD!! This semester has really taken a toll on me and I'm ready for an actual break from school. No more studying for hours, no more waking up at the butt crack of dawn, no more crying, and no more stressing over my grade!! I'm going to enjoy my break.
I plan on enjoying my break but my plan is to get more exercise in and plan my meals. I've been focusing so much on school that I rarely focus on planning ahead with this stuff and I know that's helped me out in the past. I think the extra free time will help me out a lot.
Every since I started the BLC I've slowly lost weight. It's not as much as I would like but to at least see numbers go down makes me happy. I'm so proud of all the other ladies and all you other sparkies. WE CAN DO THIS!!!!

Mind Over Matter

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Well, November is here!! New month, new start right?? Well, I wish I could say that I am going do this and that I will succeed. This semester of nursing school has completely exhausted me mentally and physically. Any spare time I have I want to sleep. My mind set is totally not in "healthy life style mode". It's in "pass this semester of nursing school mode". My stress level is is wayyyyy up there. I feel like I'm neglecting my daughter and boyfriend because all of my spare time is spent studying or sleeping. It sucks right now but I know itll all be worth it in the end. Sorry, for being a Debbie Downer.
My plan this month is to take it one day at a time. I will watch what I put in my mouth. I need to stop going through the drive thrus and out to eat so much. I will try to get my heart pumping as much as I can throughout the week. My boyfriend bought the Move for PS3 and he bought Zumba for me so there's no excuse because I have it at my own house. I definitely need to stop being a procrastinator with my school work cause this increases my stress level majorly!! I need to remember why I want to do this. I need to get my mind in the right place...

Hope everyone has a successful November!!

    Awww, emoticon, I know how hard this can be. Just keep your focus on the outcome. Keep your eye on the prize. You are doing the best you can right now so be proud of that. No, getting down on yourself. Right now, you need to be good to yourself. Good luck!

    Being in school is really hard and to top it off you have a child. Try not to be so hard on yourself. You will get back to the plan when things are more settled!
