Check-in + health maintenance

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

My goals for this week are: [Copied from yesterday's blog]
1. To eat between 1300-1650 Calories per day [If I eat more, I have to workout more to make sure I have a deficit for the day]
2. To exercise 30 mins per day until Thursday and take my jump rope with me to Miami... I leave on Thursday :)
3. Eat most meals from home and watch SODIUM intake.
4. Skip bread and unnecessary starches after 5/6 pm


----------------
Tuesday
1. Ate 1700 calories. Burned ~200 in a morning wokrout.
2. Worked out in the morning :)
3. Watched my sodium intake and was VERY close to my goal and WAAAAAY lower than a usual day for me. 2600 mg Sodium [Goal was 2500 according to diet program]
4. No unnecessary bread or starches since 5:45 :-D

WOOOOOHOOOOOO I'm SO proud of me. I really hope my hard work pays off and I ACTUALLY START LOSING WEIGHT!

I just finished my night snack: Turkey (2 oz) + cheese (80 cals) roll-up. + 1 cup of grapes.
grapes are counted as fruit (but I know they have sugar in them) But I'm still proud!
------------

Health Maintenance= Went to the doctor today and am going to get my hormones checked. I've had some issues with getting the weight off and just want to make sure I'm not having hormonal issues. PCOS runs in my family and I want to be proactive. I'm working hard and I want results.

Focusing on my diet to see BIG results! :-D

Squeezing in + Pics!

Monday, October 01, 2012

I went to a beach conference this weekend... Well Thursday-Sunday. I am proud to say that I made time to squeeze in a run while I was down there and did some strength exercises.



I also ate 1/2 of my entrees and skipped dessert most times. I am considering the weekend a success. The only criticism I have is that I think I am eating too much sodium. My weight fluctuates a good deal and I am on anti-hypertensives and I think that cutting back on sodium will help my weight AND my blood pressure.

I have been doing pretty good keeping a calorie deficit most days. :)

burning UP!

My goals for this week are:
1. To eat between 1300-1650 Calories per day [If I eat more, I have to workout more to make sure I have a deficit for the day]

3. Eat most meals from home and watch SODIUM intake.
4. Skip bread and unnecessary starches after 5/6 pm

Today I ate over my calorie goals but burned 670 calories so my deficit for the day was 400 calories! So I am happy with that.
I worked out for 90 mins
I made dinner and breakfast at home
I had a turkey burger with bun around 6 pm... :) But nothing since. So I'm pleased with my progress today. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You won't have to worry too much about your sodium if you do two things (in my opinion) - quit eating out, or eating processed foods - very high in sodium and drink plenty of water, about 4 liters - it flushes the salt.

Setting Goals: 3 month window

Sunday, September 16, 2012

The air is crisp. The green leaves on a tree in my backyard have started to turn red... and that means, summer is gone. Autumn is here. 2012 has gone by pretty quickly in my mind. Maybe it's because residency keeps me busy. Either way, if you have any goals you'd like to reach before 2013 hits... the time to get serious is NOW.

I took some time this weekend to recuperate. I decided to be a bit introspective and write down what was important to me. I try to do this regularly because it is so easy to let the busy-ness of life consume you and you look up and 5 months have passed and you have not accomplished what you set out to accomplish. And, it doesn't really matter how passionate you were about it. You have to MAKE and KEEP it a priority.

Have you taken the time re-examine your goals and make them plain? Have you tried to realistically decide what you could accomplish in the remaining 3.5 months of 2012?

---------------------
I've made personal, business, and fitness goals for the next 3 months. I made about 2 for each category and some overlap. :)

Here's to the rest of the year!!! I don't want to bring in 2013 conquering the SAME giants I tried to battle in 2012.

Now, LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Saturday

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Well, I was SOOO very sick this week. I could barely swallow and felt horrible most days. I haven't been that sick in a while. Even missed 2 days of work. Luckily I got another antibiotic and am starting to feel a little better! I walked on an incline on my treadmill on Thursday and that was great. Rested friday because I had no energy and was on backup call. This morning I did some yoga and that felt amazing!

So I'm taking it pretty easy and focusing on eating healthy foods within my limit and I'll increase the cardio when I can. I need to let my body heal... this has been a rough week.

Hope you all had a GREAT week. I'm gonna do my best to enjoy this beautiful weekend!
ETA: I got on the treadmill at 10 and walked for an hour. I walked not jogged but used an incline. I sat around most of the day and just wanted to be active. So I did. I feel great.

and now, bed time. Night yall!

The secret?

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

HMM.... so is this the secret?

Maybe this was the secret ALL ALONG. Do it whether you feel like doing it or not. I was watching the #DNC and decided that I could watch Bill Clinton JUST as well from my spin bike. Thanks to the DNC and my spin bike I burned 550 unexpected calories!

Just like that!

GO ME!
-------

OH, and I stayed within my calories again today! :-) I'm on a role. GOing to focus more on my eating than workouts (because I know I love those and will get them in most days just for how they make me feel. I think the battle will be in my food choices.)

    Oh, I do love Bill. emoticonVery intelligent man.
They are trying to make Obama out to be such a failed President yet I read this list the other day how the Republicans in the Congress have blocked every issue he has wanted to pass and how they have done it to get re-elected but it has hurt the American people so much these last 4 years. What a bunch of miserable people.
