I tried out the elliptical trainer today and I have to say absolutely loved it. I think I may make that a major portion of my cardio next time. It burns a ton of calories and it is a bit easier on the joints than walking and/or running the track. I'm still proud of myself for staying on this program this long and feeling good about it.

I'm trying so hard not to weigh myself everyday. I think my weight loss is beginning to slow down so I don't want to discourage myself. Like I said before I'm going to weigh and measure myself on monday mornings only and this time I'm going to stick to it.


Wow! Who would've ever thought?

I'm really beginning to love to exercise. I'm seeing the incredible benefits of it already. I'm trying to do cardio about 4-5 times a week, but I'm still having a little trouble getting strength training in the mix. But at this point I guess all that matters is that I'm actually moving. Instead of literally sitting around wishing the weight would fall off, I'm actually doing something about it.

I'm so proud of myself. I thought that I would never stick to this in the beginning, and now I cannot see how I could ever quit this. I feel like becoming a healthy weight is not as far away or as unattainable as it had it had once felt. I know I i just keep up what I'm doing I will be able to achieve my goals sooner than I think.


15 down, a lot more to go!

I went to the gym today and walk for a half hour and attempted using the rowing machine. I absolutely loved the rowing machine. I don't really like the way my arms look right now, so i think the constant motion of the rowing machine will help me tone them up a bit.

Oh and today I hit the 15 pound mark, so I'm going to find one of those images that everyone has and post it proudly!


Celebrating the small Victories

Sunday, July 15, 2007

I've been celebrating my small victories in my diet. Such as when I turn down a soda. I think to myself "I know that I would have never have done that before I started SP." I feel like I'm really beginning to have an impact on my health in an extremely positive way. I know for a fact that my sugar intake is much lower due to no longer drinking soda and I feel so much better about myself for it. Even if this was the only thing I had ever achieved off of SP, it would be be worth it. I've told a few close friends about my weight loss and my goal to rid my life of soda completely and all have been extremely supportive I was really surprised about how much support I've been receiving. At first I didn't really want to tell anyone but SP has been so beneficial for me I feel like I have to tell them.

I think this health plan has just really clicked with me. I don't feel like any food is off limits (including pop) For the most part I just choose better foods to waste my calories on. I just feel like soda has been my major source of thirst quenching since I can remember. It feels so good to no longer depend on it and feel as though I'm ruining my body with every gulp.

Switching subjects....I'm only .5 lbs away from officially losing 15 lbs!!!!!!!!! Monday mornings are my official weigh in days (though I weighed myself the other day because I couldn't wait) so hopefully I'll meet my goal tomorrow. I'm really excited.

I walked over 15,000 steps today. I'm sure I owe it all to work since I'm a waitress and it was insanely busy tonight.

Oh and I didn't do my strength training like I was supposed today. Instead I went out to lunch and then I had to go to work. So I may do my workout tomorrow but I'm going to Toledo in the afternoon and I'm not sure if I'll be able to fit it in before I leave.

I went over my calorie range for the second day in a row but they are still under 2000. So I'm just going to work harder tomorrow to eat more healthy. According to my pedometer I worked off over 900 calories so I'm not too worried about it.
