Moving right along

Thursday, March 10, 2011

I did good today.. I almost made the decision to go out and grab something to eat for lunch but I stopped myself and grabbed some leftover chicken I made in a crockpot yesterday, a tomato, some spinach and threw it all in a pan.. at the last minute threw in some mandarin oranges from the kids fruit cups..I tell ya what. I am NO Chef but that was darn delicious.

Oh yeah worked out last night HARD I was sweating like a crazy woman. My trainer had me increase my reps and do cardio a bit longer. I was pooped had a hard time staying asleep last night because of the soreness in my legs.


Sunday chill

Blah Day outside its raining, but my lawn needs it so I'm not complaining too much.. Today was my day of rest however I was a bit suprised to see the scale go down this morning. It made me feel really great about my progress.

I had a lunch meeting with a friend of mine earlier in the week and he told me that had signed up for a 5K . I am interested in it, but I am taking baby steps. I laughed and told him I barely made that first run on the Couch to 5K iphone app..lol the longest 1 minute run of my life. I thought I was gonna dieeee lol. Well he said, you need to have the right kind of gear, ex. shoes really make a difference. Big dummy that I am I have been wearing the Sketchers Shape-Ups when I exercise. I knew that it was time to get better shoes especially when I lift weights. Btw..Shape ups suck when you are doing squats. So I took his advice and went to my local "Run for you Life" store and Wow! they test your balance, how you walk and run. It was awesome. I was fitted for a brand new pair of running shoes. OMG!!! what a difference. The next day I felt like a gazelle on that treadmill.. ha ha a chunky gazelle but still I was getting it. I breezed through my Week 2 run and can't wait for more.

By the way the clerk at the store told me to throw away the shape-ups they are garbage the problem is they stretch out your calf muscle too much. After feeling the difference I'm kinda inclined to agree with her. .


Back in the Game

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

HI all I have been away from the Spark/Blog/Exercise thing for a while and I finally hit the wall. I cannot comfortably fit into my clothes anymore and that was really making me feel terrible about myself. Lol I found myself breathing hard just having a short walk across one of the local campuses for an event. So last week I joined a gym. It was one that I looked at doing a freeby week in December. I was really impressed because I could actually bring my kids in and they had tons of stuff for them to do beside being on a treadmill with me. It took me about a month of hard thinking to decide and I just took the plunge.
I am very impressed the trainers at the gym actually take your measurements and test your ability and make up a fitness plan for you. All included in the membership. So I'm suppose to lift weights 3 times a week also work in 30 min cardio and fun zumba on Saturdays. I feel fantastic. I have a lot more energy after 1 week. So I decided to play on my iphone and found a Couch to 5K and tried the first run today.. Ahhh I just about killed myself.. OMG my calf muscles were screaming bloody murder and that was on the first minute of running. I have a lot of hard work ahead of me, but I am going to push forward.

I am kinda stoked, I have been eating really well this past week with hardly any mishaps except for today. The kids wanted Pizza... and you know what I had only one slice and felt ill afterwards. Its like my body was mad at me. emoticon lol but thats ok I, I have a nice date with my treadmill tonight, so I will make it up. Can't wait to see what the scale says tomorrow. It will be my first weigh in after a week of getting really serious about my journey.

    I eat pizza occassionally but I really don't like it anymore like I used to. There's one left in the freezer that I bought from the Schwan's man several months ago. When I cook one, I can get three meals out of it. I used to be able to eat at least a half of one but no more. I'd rather have a salad. Changing your eating habits really works.

Day 1

Monday, September 13, 2010

I'm proud of myself even though it wasn't really much but I got on the treadmill today..lol My biggest problem was just to get myself moving. I thought about joining a fitness club, but scratched that idea. I spent the last couple of years paying for a gym membership and would show up maybe twice a month or so. I have a perfectly fine treadmill at home so I decided to go for it. I popped in some black eye peas and had a blast. I do have the p90x but I want to give myself a week or so just doing cardio before I get back on that beast.
