EPC 3 - Day 16 [8/17/11]

Thursday, August 18, 2011

I am starting to get back into the swing of things and motivated. I went grocery shopping last night and bought mostly fresh fruit, vegetables, almond milk, eggs, etc. Healthy food that needs to be prepared and cooked or eaten raw. No more lazy for this girl!

**Nutrition: 1569 calories. Pretty good, and I did track everything except for maybe a tsp of nutella I licked off a spoon.

**Fitness: Week 3 started! 1 out of 3 runs complete. 1 out of 4 JM workouts done!

**Motivation: After grocery shopping I pushed myself to do a RiPPED workout. I am glad I did, it felt good and I knocked one out for the week!

On a POSITIVE note: One of my friends asked me to be on their Tough Mudder team in November. I'm not sure I am ready for an event this challenging, but it means alot (to my self esteem) that people think I could do it!

I am GRATEFUL for: Avocados being 2 for $2.

EPC 3 - Day 14 & 15 [8/15, 8/16]

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

So I am a little behind, what else is new. I tried writing my Day 14 blog yesterday 3 times!! And for whatever reason Internet Explorer kept shutting down on me (I am on the boys’ computer). So I got so fed up I gave up! Lately (this past weekend) I had started to feel so lazy and unmotivated. I suppose everyone goes through those spurts once in a while…or maybe just me! HA. I didn’t meet my fitness goal and only got two runs in. I mean eating/tracking wise, I am still doing well. I hardly ever “cheat” and when I do I always include it the best I can. Any suggestions for me, Sparkies?


Day 14 – Monday

**Nutrition: 1614. Did well eating wise, it was my big cleaning day so I took meal breaks here and there.

**Fitness: Week 2 – 2 out of 3 runs complete. 0 out of 4 Jillian Michaels workouts complete. [NO BUENO! I could not motivate myself to exercise today..or lately for that matter, I need to get better at this, STAT!]

**Motivation: I did sooo well today. I have needed to clean my room now for months…and even used it as my motivation/organization goal for the first round of EPC. Ha! I finally got around to it….I cleaned off my dresser and organized my shoes. Now I just need to figure out which clothes to keep and what to give away.

On a POSITIVE note: I heard that Jillian Michaels is coming out with a new DVD on September 6th called “Killer Buns and Thighs”…I need to get that!

I am GRATEFUL for: a rainy day. Without which I most likely wouldn’t have cleaned!

Day 15 – Tuesday

**Nutrition: 1804 calories. Damn those Rice Crispy treats! I wasted most of my calories on them because they were homemade and at the kids that I watch’s house. They didn’t have much else to eat and I usually bring my lunch but I haven’t been to a grocery in a week. Therefore, I was hungry and they were present. I know, I should’ve had better will power. But it isn’t that bad!

**Fitness: Week 3 – Ran 4.4 miles today (at a decent pace of 5.6)..nice. So 1 out of 3 runs complete.

**Motivation: Nothing today. Maybe laundry tomorrow?

On a POSITIVE note: I exercised today, and really pushed myself. I didn’t “phone it in”.

I am GRATEFUL for: good friends. :)

    Wow 4.4 miles, awesome! I can't wait for Jillian's new video! This is the first I've heard of it! THat's great that you finally started cleaning your room. That must feel so good. As for getting motivated, get your butt to the grocery store! Get lots of great healthy food. Then get a new video and get obsessed with your muscles like I am, lol. 2 and a half weeks of No More Trouble Zones and I am getting jacked! I wish we went to the same gym because there is this 12 week program on that fitwhit posted about that looks awesome that I would love to do by Jamie Eston, but I would want to do it with a partner.

Well this blog is for the past 2 days....Saturday was somewhat productive and today (with all the rain) was ehh.

**Fitness: week 2 = 2 out of 3 runs complete.....No Jillian workouts done.

**Motivation: Blahh. Failed again.

On a POSITIVE note: Got some color today, despite the cloudiness!

I am GRATEFUL for: being able to hang with 3 guys friends! (No girl drama!)

--Day 13 Sunday

**Nutrition: 1462 calories. And tracked everything (the best I could!)

**Motivation: Gave my bf back his 3 sweaters, that lessened up my pile :P

On a POSITIVE note: I took my little niece out to do something fun (it rained all day here nonstop!) We went to Chuck E Cheese and out for pizza.
I am GRATEFUL for: perseverance. I WILL find a job, no matter what! Grr. ;/

EPC 3 - Day 11 [8/12/11]

Saturday, August 13, 2011

Yikes! It was another unproductive day. I cant drink like I am in college anymore, because then it takes me a whole another day to nurse the hangover. BLAHH! So needless to say, eating helped me cope (or soothed the tummy ache I had alllll day) so breakfast and lunch were normal --but high in the calories range --but healthy anyway. Once dinner rolled around, my friend and her son were over and my mom was going to order pizza but my genius idea was go to the buffet. (I was craving it..bad, so bad) However, I didn't eat soo bad. (Sushi, crab rangoons, shrimp, clams, chicken, and 2 cookies) I wasnt stuffed, stuffed when I left. Then Mike called and we went running.


**Nutrition: This was the last day of my calorie spree -- IDK what I was thinking, I will blame the hangover! Prob not in my range and tracked everything but dinner.

**Fitness: week 2 = 2 out of 3 runs complete.....No Jillian workouts done.

**Motivation: Blahh. Failed again.

On a POSITIVE note: As much as my stomache hurt, I still ran 3.37 mi last night, it was nice and cool out.

I am GRATEFUL for: second tries. Being able to wake up and start a fresh, new day!

    I love what you said about what you are grateful for. I have been soo stressed out lately with poor choices that I have made (my accident, speeding ticket, money control). It has really been getting me down. But you are so right. I can't change the past, only the future. I will deal with my consequences and become a better me! I just hope when I go to court for my ticket I can get my points dropped!

EPC 3 - Day 10 [8/11/11]

Friday, August 12, 2011

Well last night the concert/tailgating was awesome!!! but today I am totally out of commission....boooo! I drank wwwaaaaayyyy too much and then we went to the diner afterwards and I got a tuna melt....(I had to, it has been YEARS since I've had one and they make them the best there!) So I had plans to run/do Jillian early today but it doesnt look like that is here goes....


**Nutrition: Probably did not stay within my range...due to beer, pretzels, sun chips and my delicious tuna melt I devoured at 1 am. Therefore, I failed at tracking for the day. Booo!

**Fitness: week 2 = 1 out of 3 runs complete.....No Jillian workouts done. ---Will do tomorrow, no time today.

**Motivation: No time for cleaning today, need to get to this soon. I think I just dont even know where to start?!?

On a POSITIVE note: The kids behaved for me today, better than usual, so I treated them to ice cream ;)

I am GRATEFUL for: getting a call back from the Superintendent's office....things may just be looking up soooon =)

I included a picture from the my skinny jeans of course ;)

Me and my running partner/best friend Mike

    I had to leave a message, I will try back on Monday. He was out for this past week but said he will meet me to go over my resume, etc. His wife used to request me as her sub through Kelly Services, I am hoping this goes well and he may want to use me to fill one of the two positions that are still open. I'm nervoussss!
