It seems like I am making sooo many posts and I know they are probably getting old... lol. BUT I worked out 2 hours in the gym last night and I NEVER asked myself... "Tired Yet?"
I am continuing my a.m. workouts even when I woke up late I did 15 mins of taebo and was proud! I worked hard for those 15 mins! And then after I watched the biggest loser, I went to the gym and did SO Much stuff lol. It was challenging but fun. I jumped from machine to machine, not really, but I did treadmill, arctrainer, my own spin class- :-D-, maybe spent 15-20 mins on each but worked up a good sweat. I lifted weights and danced in the dance studio-in public, yes!- and got my BF to hold my legs while I did 12 pull ups! I also Bench pressed 65 pounds! lol... I'm VERY proud of that too!
Oh and I did tire runs- thanks TrainerT! Hmm... I have to take it easy on my knee because I have a bout of tendonitis- self-diagnosed...
My summary this week is I am STILL Working hard! I am adding fruits and veggies to my diet. I am not going to focus on the 1200-1500 limit so much BUT I am watching my calories. I guess I mean that if I eat a lot of fruits and veggies and happen to go over my calorie limit... I still feel like I will be able to lose weight. Basically I am experimenting, because I fear my body is seriously afraid of starvation mode and unwilling to give up the pounds. I have to do something... so maybe a little extra water fruits and veggies and maybe even a few more calories considering how much I work out will help me get beyond and below150. * In the past I only lost weight once I increased my calories. I was working out 2 hours a day and not seeing any weight loss- sound familiar?- then I finally decided to eat 1800 cals or something like that and the weight started melting. I was also eating every 3 hours. Not saying it will happen again, just saying... something's gotta give! *
And sidenote, I am going to focus more energy in school. I don't want to obsess over my weight. I am going to do what I need to do and workout as much as possible but there IS more to life than weight loss! Med school takes up a lot of energy and I need to spend more time studying for my test NEXT FRIDAY! AHHH! :-D
3 hour diet for next 4 weeks
Wish me luck on this cruise body ! ~4 weeks left.
Talk to ya next week!
