Accountability buddy/Diet coach?

Monday, August 13, 2012

Hy guys,

I'm looking for an accountability buddy for the next 6 weeks (or longer ). I'm doing the beck diet solution and we are supposed to have someone to check in with. I am super busy most days so I won't be writing constantly or bother you with every food decision :) LOL. I think it's just supposed to be someone whom I feel accountable to and of course, I would return the favor.

Just putting it out there. Hope someone is interested! :-D

I'm 5'1 Ultimate goal 120, Acceptable MID-range goal = 140. I'd like to lose ~ 8 lbs a month Until December 2012

    I am looking for exactly the same thing. I would love an accountability buddy who will check in every day with me.

I would like to track 2 goals:

- Did I exercise at least 30 min today?
- Did I eat 1600-1800 calories with a good balance of fat/carbs/protein?

If not, why not?
What are possible solutions to my reason(s)?
How can I do better tomorrow?

That's it. Anyone interested?

    YAY! Thanks Ladies! Fair warning today is not going to be the most superb day! I am eating fried fish, mac and cheese, and string beans/cabbage. And I'm loving it. But I will try to stay within my caloric goals! +/- workout!

    Nope you don't have to be doing the diet OR dieting at all! :-) Just have to be open to me seeing " MAN, I ate the whole kitchen today!!!" Or, "What do you think I could have done differently today, I only ate 1000 cals" emoticon which is QUITE unlikely! LOL

I'm going to try to keep my goals on the FOREFRONT of my mind which potentially could be difficult because I am so busy!

    Thank you so much! I hope so too. If not, I can do it on my own but it's a necessary part of the program so I have to at least give it an honest try!!

My FAVORITEST Saturday so far! Pics!

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Yes I know Favoritest is not a word.

But... Guess what guys!!!?!?!

I bought my treadmill today! I got a T10.0 Livestrong Treadmill. It has an ipod player with speakers, goes up to 12 mph and 12% incline and a fan and other cool gizmos. I can even get preplanned workouts online and stuff! haha I'm super excited!



It took maybe 1.5 hours to build. My first workout on it burned 700+ calories and I am so glad I bought this treadmill!


You guys, get ready for some amazing calorie burn! I don't even have to go all the way to the gym anymore. I'll still go for my dance class, weights, and maybe Zumba.

Oh and I made the most amazing Taco Salad yesterday and today! YUM!

    I suspect the time to build it also burned some calories, though I don't know how they would be classified on the tracker!

Happy Birthday to MEEEEEE: 27th year of Bombshell!

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Yesterday was my birthday 7/23/12. I'm a LIONESS (LEO), can't you tell?? I will upload some pictures later, but it was a fabulous day. I had to work the (entire) 24 hours before my birthday but decided to skip a much needed nap and make the most of the day. I had a delicious brunch prepared by my neighbors because they knew I had to work all night... HOW AMAZING WAS THAT? Then picked up my pup from the doggy hotel- he was happy to see me! I took a quick hour nap then headed to a baseball game. After the game we got a delicious dinner and I ate it ALL because I was starving and hadn't eaten since brunch! They even gave me a FREE brownie sundae (my favorite dessert... and I don't even really like sweets) and I shared it with my friend. Over all, this was an amazing birthday even though I was exhausted, had to change my plans at the last minute, and didn't go out of town.

Today I was surprised with an edible bouquet AT WORK! How sweet!! :-) I only ate ONE chocolate covered strawberry and left the rest in the fridge to enjoy tomorrow. I'm gonna spread this celebration out! :-)

I was exhausted at 7 pm so I decided to lay down and go to sleep. Then, I figured it was too early. So I pulled out a book I wanted to finish and guess what, I read for 3 hours and FINISHED the book. I read the last hour on the spin bike so I got a WORKOUT (630+ cals) and finished my book. Double bomb.com for that! :-D LOL

And now, I am going to takea bath and drink some tea before bed. I am feeling amazing and starting my 27th year off with a bang. I finally see my beauty and worth and it's an amazing feeling to be able to celebrate yourself. Thank God he took the time to make me! :-)

Here's to a healthy happy year and reaching my fitness/nutrition goals!

Later,
Gonabfit

A Gym Surprise

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Well... I went to the gym today around 4:30 with a goal to get a quick run in and maybe lift weights. Instead I decided to hit the weight room first and THEN do my cardio. I went into the weight room and noticed it had changed. My favorite machine (the captains chair) had been upgraded and now it's too wide for my arms to really hold me up without hurting my shoulder... but I pressed through.

Then a guy walked up to me and started asking me questions, like what are your goals, etc? Turns out he was a personal trainer at the gym and showed me a routine for FREE!!! And he said he'd help me out with free sessions whenever I go to the gym if he's around. He flirted but I was happy to have the new routine AND someone pushing me. AND there was no pressure (which is GREAT because I am a pretty shy person and hate being pressured to do stuff) :)

He didn't ask for my number and didn't make me feel uncomfortable... he did hint to being willing to take me to dinner and wash my car LOL but either way I'm SOOOO happy I got a free PT session. Burned 600 cals and got a good strength workout~


Go me! God is sending me early birthday gifts through the universe! Wonder what other amazing things are headed my way!?
