Starting the comeback

Friday, November 08, 2013

Over the course of the last 365 days I have lost and found 30 pounds on my 5ft 4 frame. This time last year I hit the gym hard, ate very little was miserable but losing weight.

Then in April of this year I decided I needed a small break so I put myself on maintenance and boy did the pounds start itching to get back in.

In July I started training for a 1/2 marathon and I am proud to say I race that race two weeks ago in 2 hours and 43 minutes. But I did it at the expense of over training and injury.

You might wonder how one can gain weight while training for a 13.1 mile race. Well, let me tell you, I let my running become my excuse. "I ran 7 miles this morning, let's go out to Breakfast (and lunch and dinner)" and I did it repeatedly over and over again so that one year later, I am .4 pounds lighter than this day last year.

So here I am going to start my comeback. I got up and hit the gym this morning. Did a quick warmup on the elliptical then some squats with the kettle bell and some walking lunges. Coming back from an injury from the race so I am starting out slow. Then I did 35 minutes at 2.6mph and a 2% incline.

Just remember, every little bit counts.

Green Coffee Bean - 4 Weeks

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Ok, I have been using this supplement faithfully for the last 4 weeks and I am down a total of 7.6 pounds. I have maintained 1500 calories per day and walked a consistent 15,000 steps per day (with the exception of last week, I was in a conference all week).

My personal opinion of whether or not it works? Meh, I am super proud of my results but I don't know if that is because I have feel like I have been putting in a lot of effort to my weight loss (tracking what I eat and being active) or because of the supplement.

Overall: Doesn't hurt, but not impressed with the results.

  what brand of green coffee beans did you go with. There are so many out there and not sure which ones to choose. Dr Oz said be careful of ones that aren't pure

    my suggestion would be to do 4 weeks eating the same calories, walking the same, etc, but leave out the coffee beans.
that way, you get comparable results. if you lose as much or less you will know that they didnt play a big role...however, no matter what we eat or how we exercise, results will vary from time to time.
if you arent having any harmful side effects and you believe it is helping, then keep using it.

Green Coffee Bean - 2 Weeks

Saturday, November 03, 2012

I am down another 1.2 pounds this week for a total of 5.4 pounds. I'm not getting outstanding results, nothing like they are boasting in the advertisements. But I keep taking the supplement.

I have upped my calorie intake from 1200 cal a day to 1450 cal per day and I continue with my 10K+ steps per day.

In a "Biggest Loser" Challenge with one of my male co-workers and I want bragging rights.

Green Coffee Bean - 1 full week

Friday, October 26, 2012

Ok, I went back in my tracker and figured out how much I weighed the day I started the supplement and what I weigh this morning, one full week of taking the supplement 2x per day.

I am down a total of 4.2 pounds. Amazing right? I wrote yesterday that it was only 2#'s but I was looking at the wrong data. 4.2#'s in one week. I know, a lot. Unhealthy levels. But hear this...

I have been eating a minimum of 1200 calories per day, the lower end of my calorie range. I have been getting a minimum of 10,000 steps per day. Yes, more active than before and yes, less intake of calories than before. BUT IT's WORKING!!! and I am following my SP plan.

I am super excited about what next week may bring. I am not expecting another 4 pounds or anything, but to keep losing every day, even at a .2 loss, would be amazing. I am super pumped.

Green Coffee Bean - Day 7

Thursday, October 25, 2012

OK, I have been taking the Green Coffee Bean supplement for the last week and you know what? I am down 2#'s. I know a lot of people will say , "Two p0unds? What? That's really not all that much. Not for a weight loss supplement that is spouting 27# in four weeks" But you know what? 2#'s is monumental for me. I have been stuck at the same weight for months.

It could be that I am tracking EVERYTHING and making sure I stay in my calorie range. It could be that I am making a lot of effort to make sure that I am getting at least 10,000 steps per day. You know what? I DON'T CARE. Whatever it is, it is working and I am going to keep at it.
