Feeling Stronger

Thursday, September 18, 2014

It's been a while since I felt stronger. I am on a new plan where I watch my macros (carbs, Fat, and protein). We weigh our food and measure everything and track it. We also do compound strength training 3 days a week. I gotta say, I feel pretty good after just one full week. I am down 2.5 pounds.

Weight routine:
Monday, Wed, Friday - Barbell Squats, Deadlifts, Overhead shoulder press, and Barbell Bench press.

I havent been able to increase my weights just yet but we are easing into it.

Minumum of 10 minutes of Activity

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

So I started a challenge on my Husky Lovers team page for us to do a minumum of 10 minutes of activity each day. Inspiration from TheSparkGuy's blog entry. I think he was on to something. The further in a streak you get the more likely you are to keep going so you dont ruin your track record.

I hope that this challenge will help keep me motivated and inspire my team to keep at it.

Proud Friend

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I just wanted to dedicate this short blog to a friend of mine, whom I am very proud of. She has stuck with her eating and has now added a workout routine. I know she will hit her goal soon and I am so very happy for her.

Now I am not a very competitve person but she makes me look bad. HA maybe her healthy habits will rub off on me again. :)

Small steps

Thursday, July 17, 2014

HA literally. I went for a 2 mile walk yesterday. It was slow but it was something active. YAY ME. :) Tonight may be tough to get some exercise in but I will do my best. There is always an excitement when you start something new. The trick is to keep going in the middle. That is where I need my spark team to come in and be the encouragement I need to keep going. emoticon

Back at it.

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Well I have lost 30 pounds and proceeded to gain it all back. So time to get back at it and try to get back to something consistant. That is something my life has not been in a long time now. I think that has a lot to do with my time away from Sparkpeople, my horses, etc. I'm feeling frustrated but I know I can turn it around.
