I weighed in at 147.8 this a.m. and I'm excited! Finally moving away from 150... again. lol!


Hope all is well with all you sparkpeople!

I took my lunch break today and did 53 mins of JUMP ROPE AND strength! yay! Clearly you can't jump rope the whole time but I REALLY REALLY got my heart rate going! So... yay! Avg heart rate 136 Highest 185. (though I am working on keeping my heart rate in the SAFE zone which is no more than 85 % the max. above that you affect your hearts safe workign capacity. :-D Burned almost 400 cals. But I was working hard today and didn't even have to leave my living room! So no excuses!

I renewed my spirit yesterday and am remaining confident, postive, optimistic, and driven. Back to studying for me and I am giving this my ALL and no matter how I feel ( if i feel behind, overwhelmed, discouraged, whatever) I AM capable of doing this. and I will.

I'm sending some motivation your way!!!! WHOOOO HOOOOOOOO! Whatever you want to be in life, it is NOT to late to start! Begin acting AS IF you are exactly who you want to BE!!!!!

BFLWeek8:Self-Discipline is a beautiful thing

Thursday, May 28, 2009

*** When your mind is made up you don't have to debate. You say NO, I don't want any cookies because you know it's not in your plan. Your mind is free to think about other things."
emoticon emoticon

When you hear self-discipline do you think of all negative thoughts, self-deprivation, denial, misery?

Well I guess that's how I felt at first too but I now realize that I NEED routine in my life.. .especially when everything is stressful. I love working out, I am doing better at eating right (I have been cooking a lot of healthy things like spicy chicken/potatoes, chicken stirfry from SCRATCH!), and studying 11/hrs per day or more.

The problem is that I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO OBSESS about weight loss, working out, arguments or any other useless mind-numbing things lol. I have decided that from now until things settle, I will set a calorie limit and stick to it. I will choose when I will workout and do my best to stick with it. And hopefully learn to live in the moment because I feel that sooo much time is wasted ruminating over " how much should I work out today, what am i goign to eat, will I go over my calories, should I eat those fries., etc" For now I need some discipline.
:-D so I can focus my mental power on PASSING and SURPASSING MY EXPECTATIONS ON THIS TEST!

oH BUT i DO HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS!!! I'm back to 148.4 this a.m. which puts me definitely under 150! YAY!

My plan ( Obviously at some point I will have to sacrifice some sleep to get going with this schedule. But the truth is if you don't start somewhere you will never start! :

Wake up and exercise at 5/6 a.m.
Eat breakfast 6:30 a.m.
Study 6:30-11 a.m.
Lunch 11
Study 12-4
Break 4-7
Practice Exams 7-10
Sleep by 10:30
Calories 1250-1600 ( I added 50 cals to the end b/c sometimes I'm more hungry. My brain is eating up that glucose! )
Exercise- Whatever I can do. usually I do a FAST 3.5 mile run and try to burn atleast 300 cals. usually I do more.
Drink- Water and lots of it. Tea and coffee w/ splenda when I need it
Diet- I have been cooking at home. Eating more fruits and veggies

I know this is strict but hey it is what it is. The National exam is very serious and in the past 5 days I have felt unfocused and I NEED to get focused and serious. I will keep up my exercise. I will do my best to eat right (and I have been doing better at not eating fast food) I figure if I make a plan and stick with it I will get the results.... even if I don't constantly obsess over it!

BYE! Back to studying!

BFL Challenge: Week 7/ Recovery

Friday, May 22, 2009

Yes, again I am injured during a challenge. but this time I was hit by a car while riding my bike(totally the driver's fault. I had the green light.) I was on the hood of her car. :( . My knee is hurting and my calf muscle is so tight from limping! But I am alive and THAT is a miracle in itself! God truly is amazing to me and I don't care who knows that I love Him! LOL emoticon

Ok so back to me... I had gotten down to 147.4 emoticon but since Monday (the day of the accident) I kinda got into a funk and gained some water weight back with the stress so I'm back at 150.4. but whatever, I have my health and I'm sure I'll be back on my way by next week because I'm watching my calories again! * I had been eating whatever I wanted Mon and Tues because I felt like I deserved it after surviving getting Hit by a car while riding a bicycle!

I'm still focused on reaching my goal and I have seen so many changes in my body that I am truly PROUD of having worked so hard whether I have gotten close to my weight goal or not. My clothes are looser, My bf keeps telling me that he can see abs! lol... I usually just smile but I CAN see the AB lines too!

Once my knee heals I'm going to get back to Taebo and Pilates but I am goign to take a break from running and biking because they will be too hard on my knee. Since I can't workout like I want I will MAKE SURE to control my diet. But I will have 1/2 a brownie sundae tonight.

**** I passed ALLLLLLL of my classes and am officially done with my SECOND year of medical school!!! YAY!!! GO MEE~!!! Now I have to study 11 hours a day for the next 34 days so my time will be COMPLETELY devoted to doing GREAT on the national exam and exercising/Losing weight!! But I'll be back full throttle June 28!!!! * and I'll probably check in briefly before then too!
