Back to 157! :\

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

So TOM came thru and blew me up to 158.4 lbs and I lost them last week.

Started a new challenge on the "Lose 1 lb or 1 inch" team which requires me to weigh in on Thursdays. Of course I'm keeping my Saturday WI as official because it has been for the last 5 years!!!

Yep, as of Sunday, March 4, I've been sparking for exactly 5 years.


I spent my 5th sparkiversary in the gym doing the Fit Tests. I'm posting the first and recent Fit Tests that I've done. I chose to do the Insanity Fit Test.

I'm still doing my Strong Lifts 5x5 and here are my workouts for the 4th and today emoticon

You see I'm still holding down the 185. I'll post my video later. But I did 185 again because I'm not moving up 10 lbs until I can just pick up the 185 lbs without huffing and puffing! I'm also sticking to 60 on the overhead presses. That stuff is hard. It's getting better with each time I do them. Still working on it though.

This is what I did, today. I'm sticking to 90 lbs on both the bench press and barbell rows because it's a struggle and I don't just want to go up and fail. I want to get stronger.

Thanks for stopping by. I know you all will meet the goals you've set for yourselves this week!!!!

Kels deadlift 2/24 @ 175 lbs

Sunday, February 26, 2012

So I'm putting myself out there.... getting it off the ground was the hardest thing. I'm not sure about 185, that's what I have to do on Tuesday.

Here's my 5x5 stats for Friday:

It's a new week... feeling a little weak, but we were up late last night. Planning on just one meal today and working out and making the next three weeks count.

LW: 157
CW: 158.4
GW: 156.8 by 3/3

TOM has faithfully arrived 1-2 days before or ON my weigh in day! It's put a damper on my WI days, but I try to look at it on the positive side, at least I didn't gain 5 lbs... which I have in the past!

Thanks for taking time to stop by.

I know we will meet our goals for this week. Let's just take it one day at a time!

Lost 2.4 lbs AGAIN!

Monday, February 20, 2012

Well, so last week I didn't blog at all (shame on me) it was a busy week.

I only lost .4 lb. I wasn't discouraged... just a bit disappointed... but then I remembered that I prayed to God that I would gain, or stay the same. I guess He answered that prayer accordingly... then I had to laugh. I loss is always better than a gain or a maintain, no matter how small.

This past week, I made a few adjustments, even tho I wasn't feeling my workouts because of my dying HRM battery... and I came down 2.4 lbs. Thus, fully establishing my presence in the 150s.

However, TOM is coming to town with scheduled arrival of Wednesday 2/22. I hope this is so. I hate a weekend arrival! I'm feeling the hormonal cravings and just NO MOTIVATION to do anything right. So I'm fighting the natural man, that FLESH, that self destructing being... by overcoming my feeling with simply trying to do the right thing. Blew it today... but thankfully, there is tomorrow.

So here are my stats:

SW: 169.4
LW: 159.4
CW: 157.0
GW: 155.5 if TOM doesn't mess me up!!!

Goals for the remainder of the week:
1. Get sleep
2. Switch from evening to morning workouts
3. Stay within the 1320 - 1670 calorie range (ideal is under 1600)

Hope you all have a great week.

Down 2.4 lbs this week!

Sunday, February 05, 2012

I was able to shed the 1.2 gain and an additional 1.2. That's fine by me!!!!

So here are my current stats and goals:

LW: 162.2
CW: 159.8
GW for 2/11: 158.3

LM: w = 31.5, h = 44.5
CM: w = 30.9, h = 43.13

I'm going to go with the SP cal calculator... it says to max at 1620 cals and I think I'm going to aim for that. I was feeling pretty tired this week in the gym.

Still working on Sleep.

Water probably needs to go above 12 glasses, but if I can hit 12 a day, that will be great!

Last month, my goal was to lose 6 lbs. I lost 7.2 lbs last month.
Now, it's February and my goal, once again is to lose 6 lbs and I've already put down as 2.4 lbs. We'll see what the calorie adjustments do to help me shed 1.5 lbs by my next WI.

Stay tuned and stay focused!
