Sucky Weigh In day..

Friday, May 18, 2012

So, I was kinda expecting it to not be great.. Not because I havent made an effort, but because the last time I actually put my weight in here, was followed by a couple of horrible weeks in which I was too ashamed to put the weight I had gained, then this was followed by a denial week in which I didnt weigh in at all, until finally by mid week this week, I decided to get serious and active.. so today, when I weighed in after the morning workout, I had 4 pounds more than the last time I put my weight in the website.. which was to be expected after the weeks that followed.. I could be discouraged, but I decided I wasnt going to be, and the first thing I did towards that end was to put the weight in the tracker instead of being in denial of what is really going on.. I think it helps.

Other than that I am just going to keep getting better and look forward to next week. Theres nowhere to go but up! (or down.. in this case :P)

Happy friday everyone!

xoxo
Katy

    That's not too bad given what you've described leading up to it. The best part is that it's only a few weeks, so turning it around a few weeks will have you right back on track.

10 minute jump start video!

Friday, May 18, 2012

I tried this and omg!

I was feeling so good yesterday after finishing my short 10 minute workout video without stopping or reducing intensity that today I tried to switch it up a bit and came up with this one, even though I saw the jump bit.. lol well it got me! I didnt stop but I did had to reduce intensity a couple of times.. so now I will probably be obsessed with it until I can make it..

Has anyone else tried this video?? Care to share your experience??

I am packing my lunch today again, I think this is all looking very promising for me and getting better by the day.. I am really looking forward to this new life!

I wish everyone a great friday, full of smiles and positive things to get this weekend started right!!

xoxo
Katy

    I haven't tried the video, but glad you found something that you enjoy doing. There are so many different ways to get in some fitness minutes.

You're doing great, fitness minute wise and packing your lunch. Eating healthier and saving some money too, bonus!

I haven't done the videos, but those 10-minutes are excellent because it's usually easy to find at least 10 minutes in a day. One that is challenging you is pretty awesome; you'll feel that much more accomplished when you do it with ease!

Thursday seems fun!

Thursday, May 17, 2012

I went to bed around 11-ish last night, so today I woke up pretty early, around 5:30am, so I stayed in bed a bit more and then got up, feeling great, found a different 10 minute workout video and went for it.. it went well, I feel I worked better than yesterday and it didnt seem so difficult to just get up and do it.

With the daily exercise challenge I am also trying to implement some other changes, today I packed my lunch to work, I am not ready yet to do it every day but I think it will be good to do it little by little since it will definitely be healthier food (I love cooking), and also will save me money, which I need! I am feeling great so far, but I am a bit nervous cause tomorrow is when I weigh in, I havent done that in about two weeks and I know last week was not good, so maybe I wont have any changes even though I have been working harder. I shall see..

Anyways, hope everyone is feeling good, smiling lots and having a great day!

xoxo
Katy

First fitness!!

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

So I joined the challenge to do 10 minutes of exercise at least five days a week for four weeks. I started looking for videos in here that I could start with, I found Coach Nicole´s 10 minutes kickboxing workout video. I know 10 minutes is not much, but as I finished doing it, I realized how unfit I currently am, I was so tired and out of breath I couldnt believe it. Seeing as fortunately I am a very positive person, this just encourages me to do more every day until I feel the difference. But I still feel quite surprised about it.

I guess living in denial is pretty easy, specially when it has been going on for a long time, but I think I am changing my mentality this time, and I truly believe a small step is better than no step at all, so hopefully, with a little bit of patience and of course a little help of my friends (old ones and new ones I will make here), it will all just go great!!

I hope everyone is having a great wednesday!

xoxo
Katy

    10 minutes is a great start! I know from years of doing nothing all day, you have to start somewhere. Sometimes starting smaller is better because at times I get carried away and jump into routines, and the difficult part hits me later. I have injured myself multiple times from starting off too fast so I'd say 10 minutes is a nice building block.

    I came back home and gave that 10 minutes video another go.. I am happy to report that it went much better!! Not sure why but I was not super out of breath or feeling like I was about to pass out.. which is awesome!!

Just had to share that!

Hope everyone is doing great!

    Thank you!!! I am feeling quite encouraged, I am not sure if it is because of the warm welcoming or because of it being my first week, but I sure want to remain this way!

I hope you are both having a great day!

    Congrats on finishing the video! And don't think for a second that 10 mins of that video isn't much. I looked it up on the spark fitness (I don't know if you knew or not, but just in case, if you click on add cardio and go to other exercises, they have all those kinds of videos listed) and just to give you a idea of how much that is, I would have burned 210 calories from that 10 min video, while walking for 30 mins at a 20 mins a mile would have only burned 196 calories. Of course your calorie count will be different since you are a different weight and height and all that, but still! What you just did is working your body more then walking for 30 mins! Way to go! emoticon

I love how positive you are about this. And you are right, it's baby steps that will get you there. Personally I think it's alot better then running full speed, if you do that you would get burned out and less likely to keep with your goals. Keep taking those baby steps and you'll get there before you know it.

Welcome, Glad your here!
