I haven't been feeling like myself. I got mad at this journey because I'm not seeing the progress I want to see. My neck injury from the "almost" car accident is still acting up two months later. I twisted my ankle the other day, not severly but enough to limit my ability to do high impact exercise. I indulged in a self pity binge fest for two days. I have my vacation coming up in two weeks, this of course includes too much eating and drinking but also lots of extra activity (walking, boating, frisbee, swimming etc) in addition to my regular exercise program.
My thoughts are all over the place. Where I my head is at right now is too not really push hard for the next two weeks, no more binging but not start any new more intense plans with a vacation coming up. I'm certainly not giving up but it seems silly to start a new plan when I know i'm going to be out of my element for a week after barely getting started. Also with my exercise being somewhat limited thats a big downer. maybe that's just an excuse?
8-1-11 that is the date on which I will have exercised for one year without missing a day doing a minimum of ten minutes although almost always more (provided nothing crazy happens in the next month or so). My boyfriend wants to reward me with something small, I was thinking about asking for the book "new rules of lifting for women" after an SP friend recomended it.
However I"m thinking I might want to purchase it before then. Then I can read it while on vacation and perhaps implement the program when I get back from vaca?
Also after vaca i'm thinking about cutting some calories, perhaps aiming for 1400-1500 per day? see if that gets the scale moving. Also thinking about finding a way to increase my protein without increasing my calories by much per the suggestion of some of my awesome SP friends.
I know i'm pretty healthy, i work out daily, eat pretty well, get my fruits, veggies, lean proteins and whole grains but i'm still 22 pounds away from hitting a "healthy" BMI.

The UV Project- Week 3- 6/14- 6/20
Take care of YOU!!
You work, go to school, take care of kids, relationships, friends, fit in workouts, etc.. but how often do you take time out for yourself? This week- focus on "you" time, and do some thing for yourself that YOU love to do.
I spent all day on sunday having fun and relaxing with my family and my boyfriend. I went out in the paddle boat twice, I sat in the sun and read a magazine, I played frisbee, I took a walk and just generally enjoyed myself!
Fruits and Veggies:
This week, try making a new meal using only fruits and veggies! Take a picture or post a recipe and share with the rest of us!
ok well I didn't quite do that but I did increase my fruit and veggie intake. Fruit with breakfast, fruit or a veggie with my lunch and the same with dinner. I also included fruits and veggies with my nighttime snack two days.
Burn baby, BURN! Rack of those fitness minutes by pushing cardio to the max. Get that heart rate pumping. Report back next week with minutes dedicated to cardio!
gotcha! My workouts this week were:
Monday: Turbo Jam 20 minute express workout
Tuesday: 30 Day Shred Levels One and Two 54 minutes
Wednesday: TurboFire 45 EZ 44 minutes
Thursday:Elliptical 30 minutes
Friday: Turbo Jam Punch Kick and Jam 48 minutes
Saturday: Turbo Fire 30 Minutes
Sunday: recovery day Walk at the lake 38 minutes (also lots of fun active time but I don't count that hehe)
Cardio Minutes 166
ST 54 minutes with Jillian..
In addition to your regular ST routine- this week you gotta really work that core. Stream a new video, grab a fitness magazine and kill it!
Well normally I would have done my ST tuesday, thursday, saturday but my neck has been bothering me. I don't know if it has to do with last months injury or not but I don't want to push it. Anyway I did levels one and two of 30 day shred so I did quite a few ab exercises on tuesday!! Next week will be better I hope!
I'm getting a little frustrated with everything. My neck hurts, I've been mediocre with my eating but killer with my workouts. I have hardly lost any weight since January. I've lost a bit of inches here and there and a few pounds. I'm just not really making progress. I know my eating isn't always perfect but even when it is on track I'm not losing much so it feels like a waste. Maybe SP is telling me to eat more than I should or something. I have it set to lose a pound a week. I usually burn about 2700-3200 per week through exercise and I eat about 1600 cals a day when i'm on track. I'm just annoyed. Sometimes I feel like this is as good as i'm gonna get! I feel good I'm active, I eat right most of the time, I feel attractive (usually) but i'm still overweight and there is still a good amount of "flub" i'm trying to get off of me!

Choose a part of your beach body that you want to work on the most and work it like never before! (arms, abs, legs, butt) How many squats, crunches, pushups can you do? Choose an exercise that works for you that will make you really sore!
I chose to really work my total body.. I rocked my ST this week! especially friday, doing two levels of 30 day shred is killer!!
Get outside and play! Run around, hula hoop, play frisbee, etc- do some thing that makes you feel young, sexy and fun!
I hung out on the deck all day for my sisters grad party.. if that counts!!
Try a new recipe and post a picture in the team area!

Its day one of my TOM so i felt pretty crappy.
I indulged in a little too much junk, went over range just a little. Wasn't too worried about it, my main goal right now is tracking everything and not binging. I'm not focused on being perfectly in range all the time anymore.
After dinner it was workout time as always. Debating what I felt like doing today. I picked up Jillian Michaels Banish Fat Boost metabolism. I've had it for quite a long time and only ever completed it once and was literally praying for oxygen by the end.
I put it in and off I went. Of course I took water breaks as needed and stopped to catch my breath three or four times. BUT I DID IT!! of course it was totally hard BUT I didn't feel like I was going to die!!!
I think this is an accomplishment at any time of the month but day one of my period and I did it because I felt like it?
yeah i feel like a rockstar today
