Not Too Shabby

Monday, February 02, 2009

Well, I definitely indulged at the Super Bowl party at the neighbor's. Despite the overage, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I would definitely giggle if I lost more on this week's weigh in from it! I am not as hungry I guess it can all balance out, right?


Challenging evening; Change will do you good

Sunday, February 01, 2009

On the cusp of the TOM, I was ravenous yesterday evening. It was not thirst. I had consumed 60 oz of water yesterday. Major munchies attack! I calmed myself, focused, did some lookups on calorie counts, and made my choices. I made a hot apple for myself (chop apple, sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and splenda packet, and microwave for 5 minutes). After that...I was still hungry. Even after 20 minutes. Yesterday was the first day of me doing 40 minutes on the elliptical. I had wiggle room. But I didn't want to wake up with regret the next day. I decided to pop a bag of kettle corn. Afterwards, I decided that going to bed and settling in for the night would be the best thing for me. I did not wake up ravenous, and was so glad the munchies were over! I really shouldn't be tough on myself. I didn't max out on calories yesterday, even with the munchies.

Today was the second day of change. Upping my time to 40 minutes. I definitely think it was the best change since I started on my weight loss. It's amazing that, when I first started...I could only go 5 minutes. And now I am up to 40 minutes! Wee hoo! emoticon


34 pushing 40

Saturday, January 31, 2009

I decided that today was the day I would up my minutes on the elliptical. After reading an article (or quiz...I think), I was concerned that I wasn't staying on long enough to get my 20 minutes of accelerated heartrate time in. I don't usually get to the 120s or 130s until I have been on at least 10-15 minutes. I'm going to stick to this minimum now and maybe it will show scale changes too! :)

Weird thing though...once I got to 33 minutes...I suddenly felt like I was shrinking. My body must have been thinking 'uncle, uncle!' I even felt a little sweaty...not that it indicates anything...but hey! I'll take it!


Stuck stuck stuck

That's me. I'm floating between 10-11 lbs down. The monthly visitor is due soon...I sure hope it is because of her. I know that I am getting enough of what I should because I am journaling daily. I'm on the cusp of feeling that I need to extend my workout to 1 hour, but I am getting my heartrate up and working out daily. SP does not require as many days of exercise. I'd prefer to make exercise a daily thing so it is habit. emoticon


Pushing Water

Thursday, January 29, 2009

The last couple days I have exerted a lot of energy outdoors, and forgot how easily it is to become dehydrated! I am going to push the water heavily today, in the hopes that I will repair my body. I have been away from the elliptical for a day and I feel blah!
