The workout is done

Friday, January 25, 2013

Tonight consisted of the Biggest Loser walk 1 and 3. I began walk 1 but kept getting interrupted. I stopped having completed 1/4 of it, and came back to it later in the evening, beginning from the beginning. I was tired by then, but just knew I had to do it, or tomorrow I might not do it. Walk 3 is more of jogging and jumping jacks and sprints in place. I didnt want to make a lot of noise, so I actually completed it with my shoes off. I still worked up a good sweat. I think I will sleep quite well this evening.

Feeling proud

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I am feeling pretty darn good-tired but good. I have been consistent with my workout program for almost two weeks. I would feel myself sinking down on the comfy chair in front of the tv after work, and know I had a short work out waiting for me, got up to get it done. Tonight I did walk #4 of the Biggest Loser power walk Dvd, then I added 10 minutes of high burn cardio from the Biggest loser 2 workout.Short workouts, but the last one had me really sweating. Thanks trainer Kim. I am actually looking forward to even tomorrow nights schedule which involves running and sprints. woooooooohooooooooo. I haven't stepped on a scale yet, but I can feel a difference. Maybe it is in my mind at the moment,but that is enough to keep me motivated and moving forward.

Moving Forward

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Two days of commitment! I started yesterday. I actually surprised myself (not really) with how out of shape I am. I bought some new fitness DVD's. With the new year, everything to do with fitness can be found on sale in stores. I bought some Biggest Loser DVD's. I would like some of the Sparkpeople items, but I don't believe they ship to Canada, so I am getting back into taking advantage of the website. Time working out wasn't long to start-a 16 minute indoor power walk yesterday, and a 21 minutes one today. But I felt it. I am motivated after it. In fact, as soon as I log off here, I think I may hop on my upright bike or my recumbant and pedal for a bit. I have decided I am going to slowly work my way back into the gym-I mean I pay for it. Anxiety is a big issue with me-and crowds, so my plan is to start this Friday after work-it will have died down some as the week progressed. I am moving forward, back on the right path which I have chosen. Yay me!!!

Yesterday is History

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Yesterday not a good day. I started with my sit-ups in bed before the work day began which was good. It was crazy at work, so I decided to skip the gym. I went home, ate a healthy vegetarian lasagne, then blew it. I ate 3 (Though they were small) but still, 3 peanut butter ice cream sandwhiches(peanut butter ice cream between two peanut butter cookies)-which makes 6 cookies. I will say I did at least ride my recumbant for 20 minutes, but still am unhappy with my work-out and eating day. But now, yesterday is over, and today is new-so I am going to give it my all today. Luckily there are no more ice cream sandwhiches in the house, and now that I know my downfall with them (this was the first time I bought them to try), I will NOT be buying them again. I have no willpower around certain foods, so I need to avoid them until I am able to enjoy just one. Have a good day.

    I don't have junk food in the house as a general rule. It isn't healthy for me, therefore it isn't healthy for my kids or anyone else for that matter. I have a lot of healthy snacks, fruits & veggies though so if a snack attack will all be healthy and good for me! lol My son (soon to be 20) complains all the time about no junk food in the house, so he now goes out and buys his own. Considering he is a bean pole it doesn't bother him! He has learned to not bring it in the house though...the trash can likes to eat junk food! emoticon

One thing that I always force myself to do when I've had a hard or bad day at work (which is often) is to do a work out. It really does help you feel better and it is harder for me to indulge after working out so hard.

    I am just like you. There are some foods I just cannot have in the house because they seem to keep calling me until I cave in. Now I know my tigers and I work hard to avoid certain things.

    emoticonJust the fact that you posted this 'mea culpa' helps you! Progress,, not perfection. I have no will power when goodies are around. Even cooking healthy spark meals tempts me to eat more than I should. emoticonChris

getting it done

Thursday, May 03, 2012

I didn't go to Zumba last night, but I did ride my recumbant bike at home for 35 minutes. This morning I did over 100 sit-up/crunches before I left my bed. After work it will be gym day.
