Two weeks and going strong

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

I dont know about anyone else out there...but I would always workout and eat healthy and it would last right around a week and a half....
Then my motivation would start to sizzle.

FINALLY! I make it to week two and I am still going strong. I had to run errands before work this morning and I was starving! Instead of stopping for an egg mcmuffin at the 3, yes 3, mcdonalds on my way to work, I said NO. I honestly wanted to, but was able to stop myself.
I have been working out like crazy for me. I have done at least 40 minutes 6 out of 7 days every week.

So here I am, on week 3 now. I have lost about 5 pounds and I am really feeling great. As sucky as this tracking and working out is, I think if I just keep it up for a good 6 months, I can wean myself off of the tracking (not the working out).

My husband is still training for the half marathon---and doing great! He is on 4 miles right now on the weekends...and it will only increase from there.

If anyone is reading this, feel free to post, I would love to have more people to motivate each other together.

That 2 week mark was a big deal for me as well! You're on the right track. Good luck!

Day 4

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Day 4 has begun....I am doing really well with 1200-1400 calories. I also have been doing two a days for exercise--about 25 min in the morning and 30-60 at night. So tired but worth it right? off to work!

  


Motivating

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

Well....I am not sure if anyone will ever read this, but I think it will be fun to blog about weight loss. For some reason I do so much better when I obsess about it..and I wonder if anyone else is like that. I have to go onto SP throughout the day for little motivating ideas, I have to write every calorie down and how much I lose while working out....
I figure if I immerse myself in this lifestyle-as annoying it may be for my husband to hear about it every 5 minutes-then it will come naturally.

I am on day 3 and doing really well so far. I have a deficit of just under 3500 calories, so if I can keep this up it would be approx 2 lbs a week! Thats better than I thought...I just have to get over the soreness first.

Good luck to anyone out there that comes across this. We can do this and I would love anyone to join up as a friend or buddy to keep each other on track!
