Bootcamp

Saturday, May 02, 2009

tomorrow I will start a new Bootcamp. My first goal is to actually do the videos each day. the second goal is to accomplish the special task set forth for the day. The third and maybe the hardest, I am going to start running. Of course, I won't be running very far at first, but I will run and walk until I can run as far as I want. For years I watched my children practice and run for soccer. I have seen them lose weight/tone up quickly with running. If I can just go down one pants size, in a month, I will be pleased. I am tracking my food, water, and exercise again. I just need to be consistent and constant.

Am I back???

Monday, April 27, 2009

Hmmm.... I want to be back, or do I???? Yes, yes, I do! I have increased my water intake again, but I am having trouble exercising. Is it because I am out of the habit?? I'm afraid I won't have the stamina necessary?? I'm afraid I won't be able to breath???? Having pneumonia HAS made me a bit more scared of breathing hard. Is it because it was so difficult to breath for a while there, is that what is holding me back??? I need to just get over it and start again. I need to track my food. I need a kick in the pants!! I need to motivate myself to do this again!

i'm back

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

ok, ok, I have been gone a long time. I pretty much lost all of Feb and 1/2 of March to being sick, just one thing after another.. now, I am back and I am going to start taking care of myself again. I am going to start exercising, tracking food again, and increasing my water intake. I will not make my goal by my birthday this year, but it is easy enough to readjust goals. The weight is just a number, I want to become a healthier person and that will start with exercise. I have to go for a walk so I will see you all later!!

crunches

Thursday, January 15, 2009

the day before yesterday, I looked at the crunch/abs video from Coach Nicole, and thought, Nope, I won't ever be able to do that, no way will I get thru even half of that... But yesterday I tried. And yesterday I surprised myself. I stopped once, and not because I couldn't do the crunches, but because a muscle in my back tightened up. I stretched it and finished! It wasn't even as hard as I thought it would be... I am still struggling with carbs. Carrots just don't cut it when I really want a piece of toast, or crackers, or a cookie, or something else like that... My wonderful husband packs my lunch for me every day. I have asked him to only pack 1/2 sandwich and lots of veggies/fruit. He also gives me a yogurt every day. I love not knowing exactly what will be in my lunch every day. On one of my teams someone suggested using humus as sandwich spread. I told DH about it, and I bought some. He kind of turned his nose up, but he has been putting it on my sandwich, and its really good! The funny thing, now he's having it on his sandwich now too! I'm also getting him to eat more veggies at dinner. small changes....

    First of all, props to you for getting your husband to eat more veggies! I need some pointers - my DH eats a strictly meat and potatoes diet and gags on any veggie anyone tries to sneak in.

I'm so glad you discovered hummus! I refused to touch the stuff for a long time too but when I finally tried it, I was hooked.

Re: carb cravings, have you tried Ezekiel bread? When I get cravings for carbs and/or sweets, one toasted slice of the cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread fills the void. Not only does it have just 80 calories, but it leaves me feeling satisfied.

P.S. emoticon on the ab workout!!!

    It's amazing how things can rub of onto other people. My husband has just discovered the benefits of water.

The Beginning of Boot Camp

Sunday, January 04, 2009

today is the first day of boot camp. I have completed the video, and will be starting my strength training after I am done with this. It was a great work out! I am worried about getting the 30 minutes of cardio in the rest of the week. I just have to tell myself I have to do it! I really really want to shed the 5 lbs I have regained over the holiday, plus I want to lose at LEAST 20 more!! I think I can, I think I can....

I'm not feeling my normal positive, "terminally perky" self lately. IDK maybe it's Aunt Flo's visit coming, but I almost feel down right negative about many many things! I feel like this is never going to happen (the weight loss). I've always know my husband was a home body, but man, I just wish he would get the wanderlust and want to go someplace, anyplace!!! My parents just got back from a cruise, and I look at their pictures, and want to go so bad, and realize I never will unless I go alone, and what fun is that???? Grrrr. We don't even go to movies. I wander around the house, do a craft project, make something for someone, go on the computer, visit SP, play games. Boring!!! emoticon

    Actually, a cruise IS a great alternative for a homebody! Instead of staying in a hotel and going out to make the most of your vacation, there is zero guilt in staying in your room and watching movies while dining on room service when you're on a cruise. Or you could do what we did, which is go to the buffet only for meals (in our pajamas!) and then go straight back to the room to enjoy the food coma to follow. It's truly relaxing (and addicting) with next to nil in pressure.
