Week 3****

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Ok I'm really tired today, yesterday was the first double w/o day. I finally started 1/2 marathon training. I felt good during the run but I have some family obligations that prevented me from doing the p90x3 workout until 11:00. I am so pooped today and I still have to do my w/o, thankfully it's yoga lol.

My weigh in didn't go as expected, I went up 1.6 so I'm switching gears this week and attempting to track my food and get the ratios in spark recommends. I will likely take it up 2-300 calories on days I have a double workout though just so I don't send my body into starvation mode.

Otherwise, I'm feeling good and hopeful. I have't been on the scale since Monday and I don't want to weigh in again until Monday. I haven't missed any madatory workouts with the program yet and I really want to finish this and have at least a 25 pd loss from when I started. I'm gonna just keep trucking and doing what I need to do. I know I'm going to see results. It's only week 3 and I can already do 1 real push up when I couldn't even do one at the start. And I'm rocking out 15 knee pushups before my arms give out lol. So there has been progress, just not on the scale. At the end of week 4 I will take my pictures again to track my progress visually from round 1 to round 2.

Lastly, I want to end on a positive note. I've ben watching the winter olympics and I've seen some amazing things happen. I want my weight loss journey to result in someone speaking about me in those terms, that I've done amazing things. The way to get to amazing is by working hard.

    emoticon girl. You know that this journey isn't just about the scale and I am still working on the day when I can do a real push up too. I hurt my knee a few months ago and its hard to even do knee push ups so I am really working on being to do them on my toes. emoticon You got this!

Week 2 of workouts

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

I've been doing pretty well with the workouts. I have not missed any, unfortunately today I have to do my workout in the afternoon instead of in the morning. I'm trying to get overtime at work so I have to show up at 6:30am and usually it's not a bother but this morning I had to prepare my own food (my husband usually helps with this so I can get my workout in but today he wasn't being helpful) and I didn't have time to do the workout and get in to work on time. So afternoon workout it is! At least today is my free day and I don't have to take my kids to dance class so I'm gonna suck it up and get it done as soon as I get home. I was also supposed to start run training yesterday but my husband had to work late which meant I had to wrangle the kids alone until 8pm and I didn't have the energy to do it at the end of the night.

I feel like the start of this week has been wrought with issues and excuses but I have to applaud myself for still doing what I need to do to succeed. I'm annoyed at the extra stressors I have but I'm encouraged by my will to push through. Last week was my first week at a loss weight wise so I know if I stick with the workouts and tracknig my food I'll see the results I want. The amount of food I'm supposed to consume is a bit of a struggle for me but I am reminding myself that flexibility is ok and throughout this program there will be things I need to tweak.

This path of weightloss is about finding my easy and reaching my fitness nd weight goals and little annoyances and obstacles will not deter me. next Wednesday will be a day of celebration b/c I intend to find a way to do away with the annoyances and get my issues under control. Here's to another successful week and to finding a good balance. emoticon

    Glad to hear the scale is going in the right direction. I feel your pain on the issues that try to deter our progress. Being a single mom with 4 kids is not all rainbows and unicorns, lol, unless they are drawn on the walls! emoticon emoticon

2/5 accountability post

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Hey all, I'm 3 days into P90x3 and I'm proud of myself. I've been mostly following their meal plan with some modifications(their plan calls for me to eat 3,000 calories, I have not been able to stomach that with the healthy foods b/c they're so filling. )I'm sure I've eaten 3,000 in pizza and pancakes and sugary treats prro to doing the plan but I am avoiding processed foods and getting more protein. I have done all 3 workouts in the morning and I'm starting the galloway running program next week. I want to get a full week of P90x3 in before I add anything else to my schedule. All in all I must say I am proud of myself. I decided to approach this challenge with the mentality that failure is not an option and so far I'm succeceding. So pat on the back to me. Next Wednesday I'll be 1.5 wks in. I can't wait to see what my progress is on the exercises at that point. emoticon

1/29 sticking with this blog

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

I'm blogging out of shear accountability for myself. Just to update i have not started the p90x3 challenge yet b/c I'm preparing to have all of the items I need to begin. I will do my fit test tomorrow and start the program fresh on 2/3. I'm excited to start and excited to have some results. I am still rnning but I must say I havent been as motivated and I'm tired of running on the treadmill. I think being able to run outside once we are out of the negative temps will be a good motivator.
