DAY 20 - Weigh In for Week Three

Monday, January 24, 2011

So technically, I've weighed in 2 days early this week but I wanted to align my weigh-in day with everyone elses. Plus, my first goal date is to weigh 208 and be out of the obese category by 31st which is also a week from today so it just made sense!

And I've lost half a pound which is actually a small triumph after my week! But no more indulgences (Well until next weekend when I have a work thing planned, lol). But after that...no more! Luckily, next months goal is just to get back into one-derland so I'll have 4 weeks to lose 9lbs which is only 2.25lbs a week and hopefully pretty achievable!

I am more than back on the wagon and now being super-strict for a few days to make up for Saturday!! One day I'll learn lol!

I hope everyone had an awesome weigh-in today!!

    I wonder why people like weighing-in on Mondays. 1/2 a pound in under a week is fantastic!

DAY 19 - Indulging, TOM and getting back on the wagon!

Sunday, January 23, 2011

So my night out last night got majorly messy! After a landslide of cocktails and a greasy pizza, I woke up feeling awful and guilty as hell. My rock-solid mentality about this diet has taken a severe beating!! Eeeeek!

What's done is done. I can't dwell on it. I have to pick myself up and dust myself off and start over. And that's exactly what I did this morning.

And then along came TOM...thanks mother nature!
I'm so bloated and I want to cram my face with deep-fried oreos lol! You weren't gonna make this any easier for me were you?!

Getting back on the wagon is the hardest part but I'm there! I really don't wanna weigh in tomorrow but maybe a gain would do me better and teach me a lesson for next time!!

Anyways, off for now sparkies!

Over and out!

    TOM came to see me last night and I weighed in this morning down 1.4lbs... who knows you hard work might just pay off despite TOM!!! As for the binging, now that you have it out of your system, lesson learned... right? LOL There will be other days!

DAY 18 - Being Naughty!!

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Quick blog to keep up my goal of blogging daily!

After a longgggg day at work I've had my arm twisted into going out tonight. I've knew the whole day I was going to cave eventually and unfortunately I can't stomach any alcohol except Malibu and Lemonade and I'm sure Malibu is full of sugar! But I haven't been out in agesss and I think I need to let loose so I'm officially taking the night off!

Based on my goals, I only need to drop 2lbs a week the next two weeks to meet them and I've been losing double that on average so I think I may just get away with it...will just have to work double as hard from tomorrow!

Anyways, keeping this short and sweet!

See y'all 2moz for my daily check in!!

    I don't know if you've tried it, but I always drink Captain Morgan and Diet Coke! To me it tastes like vanilla flavored Diet Coke and then you only have to count the calories for the rum.

    A small indulgence shouldn't blow your progress. I work on being back on track as soon as possible.

DAY 17 - Extending Your Networks!

Friday, January 21, 2011

Ola el Sparkies!

Today I am blogging early because I'm on a late shift at work. I've woken up with sore calves after a good gym workout yesterday so I'm going to give the cardio a rest today and instead to some intense housework with the music at full volume!

I have to admit, although I had a good workout yesterday, I still am in no way a fitness fanatic. I don't know why but I just can't seem to enjoy working out although I know it needs to be done. Anyway, I've been trying to find more fun ways of getting the workouts in and I really wanted to join Zumba. I kind of rely on my friend Zoe to work out with. She too is in the 'Obese Category' and although her motivation levels usually aren't as high as mine, I can usually twist her arm into doing some fitness with me. I asked her to come to Zumba and she said it's not really her kind of thing so I resigned myself to just not going. And then I thought...'NO!' I am going to Zumba. And so I called a few workmates and was surprised to find that they'd be happy to come. And there it is...all booked for Sunday evening, my first Zumba class. I am so psyched!

I called my mother who is also on a diet. And although she doesn't wanna join Zumba, she said we can take a drive up to the mountains (About 20 miles north) and get some great hill-walking and power-walking in so I'm pretty psyched for that too! Yee ha!

I need to get some new workout tracks. I said before, I had to get XL mens because I'm so dam tall, those are the only ones that fit my legs but I wore them to the gym yesterday and they were so baggy that I felt like a giant marshmallow! Eeeeek!

Diet is going awesome. As I said I'm trying to incorperate new foods all the time so I don't get bored and yesterday I tried Weight watchers pizza which was pretty awesome. The frozen ones are a bit MING but I bought this one from the fresh pizza section and it was spicy chicken flavour...yum! It had about 450 cal and was still quite big so I was totally full after eating it. Excellent, think I'll stock up on those!

I downloaded Flirty Girl Fitness after seeing it on a Sparkfriends page and it looked really good. I gave it a try today but if I'm honest, I felt like a bit of a loser doing it, I don't know why. Maybe when I'm a bit skinnier, I'll give it another go.

So anyway, moral of the story. Extend your networks! Don't be held back at the first hurdle!

That'll all for now folks! Chin up soldiers! You can do this!!

    I love it... I am constantly looking for something new to mix things up! This way your body doesn't get board and plateau!!! Hope you love ZUMBA.

DAY 16 - First Gym Workout Done!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Heyyy Sparkies!


Today I had my very first gym workout! I've been doing fitness at home but have felt restricted on Cardio so I finally got my friend to come with me. We spent most of the time on the elliptical and treadmill then done some strength machines. I AM BEAT!!
We also walked there and back which is about 1.5miles each way. And then, I went to the supermarket with her to do a 'healthy' shop (I'm trying to keep her on board!)
So right now, I'm soooo burnt out that I can't muster the energy to do my housework lol.
Must have been a great workout!!

Anyways, just 4lbs to shift and I am officially out of the 'Obese' category!! So excited for that. Was real hungry last night again. Been trying not to eat anything after 6pm because I'm less likely to burn it off but I always get hungry at 8/9pm and it's a hunger that no amount of fruit will fill lol. So I switched onto The Biggest Loser instead and got some tough love from Jillian haha. We have the American one and the British one running at the moment. Not sure if the American one is slightly behind than in the U.S. I think it's episode 3 we're getting now.
But I LOVE it. Love all diet shows in fact!

Decided I'm going to change my weigh in day to Monday instead of Wednesday. Just to coincide with everyone elses. So when I weigh in this week, it will only be for the past 5 days so it's okay if it's not a great one lol!

Anyhow, blogging quickly today. Really should get some housework done before the BF gets home from work.

Buh Bye sparkies!!

    How Awesome! I like working out at the gym I just feel as though I don't have the money or time to do it. A few things I have learned though and might help you:

Don't be afraid to go by yourself, everyone is there for the same reason you are, to get in shape!

If you are by yourself bring an I-pod or MP3 player and listen to some awesom upbeat music to workout to, you can do this even if someone goes with you.

And check out the classes they have, I liked to go to the Zumba dance class. You burn tons of calories and it is super fun!
