it has been a few days since i blogged but i am still hangin strong.
i had an awesome elliptical workout. i put it on "variety" setting. wow!! some of those inclines were killers! 30 min and i was really sweating. i wanted to do my jogging but my legs just would not go that fast. so instead, i put it on an incline of 5.5 and walked at 3.5 for 30 min. not a lot, but hey, i have found out thru sparkpeople that i dont have to kill myself to work out. all i have to do is move.
i feel so great today. i am off frid , sat and sund. no major plans and that makes me feel even better.
i had a really yummy smoothie after my workout,. i like to record them in blogs that way i dont forget how i made them. plus, if anyone wants to try them, they are here/

1/2 scoop choc protein powder
1 tsp red fat peanut butter

i started off today by doing debbie severs slim in six i just thought i would change it up and see if i liked it better than jillian michaels 30 day shred. she has 3 separate workouts, depending on your progress. start it up, ramp it up, burn it up. i thought i would try the burn it up to see if i could hande it. well let me tell you, it is rough. 60 min on really hard excercise to make you sweat. i made it thru 20 min of different types of lunges. i had to stop after that. they call it burn it up for a reason.
so i guess that will be my goal. i def like it better than jillian michaels. not sure why. she is more soft spoken, but tough. next time, i will do ramp it up, which is a 40 min workout.
had oatmeal made it a mug for breakfast. blueberries was my fruit for breakfast. lunch is gonna be shrimp and broccolli. dinner is whole wheat pasta, shrimp, and caulfiflower.
i am still fighting the nightime eating problem. last night i had a fat free pudding and was wanting that to be all. i was soooo hungry tho. i ended up having 1 tbs of peanut butter on an arnolds sandwich thin. tonight is another night i guess i will try something else tonight
now gonna take my walk and head to work.
here is to a great day!!!
Todays yummy smoothie
4 oz plain greek yogurt
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 scoop maximum protein powder- vanila
Spash of milk
keep sparking spark friends/.

i got up and of course, after my horrbile eating this weekend, the scale was up 2 lbs. that is 7000 extra calories tho.. i dont think i consumed that many so i will wait tilll friday and weigh in and hope that some of those extra pounds come off.
i struggled to gym. was just gonna walk on treadmill but decided after i got there that that was just too boring. i may as well challenge myself and continue with my running progam. so i did 2 min walking and 9 min jogging at 4.0 i dd this 3 times and discovered when i was done that i had went 2.25 miles and burned 225 calores. wow!! who would have thought. i mean come on, 4.0 is not fast but that is what i like about this program. they dont concentrate on, cmon you can do a 5k in 30 min. they say even if you have to jog at the speed you walk, at least you are jogging and the speed will come with time. kool!!!
after that i even did some weight lifting and i can really feel it now. 3 excercises for legs/ hips and 3 excercises for shoulders. 1 for stomache. what a very good workout. it seems like when you least want to excercise, if you push yourself, those turn out to be the best sessions/
i made a delicious smoothie when i got home. i want to write it down, not just for my benefit but for everyone else that wants to try it/
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
3/4-1 cup strawberries( mine were fresh, slightly frozen from fridge)
little flaxseed( about 1 tsp)
capful of vanilla
splenda to taste
i blended it and let it sit for about 10 min to thicken and it is really good.
now it is time for work.
i have to have discipline. my hardest time is when i got home at 11 pm. this time, i am coming home and gonna eat something healthy and then stop. i will never get to my goal by binging at night.

did really bad this weekend at eating. i had some aha moments which i am gonna use to help motivate me. my son lost 10 lbs, which i am happy about . my husband said to him, your mom is always trying to lose weight. my son said to him, well the difference is that i succeeded . mom never does. how very true this statement is. i am weak and always giving in to junk food.
the other event was when we went for coffee today. i got 2 donuts. my husband got none. he said, lisa you are a lady. you shouldnt be eating 2 donuts. that sound kind of bad that he said that. but i really think that i may be gaining weight and he is trying to tell me in a nice way. he has said similar things lately also. like telling me to get a grip and control myself more. i
i really have to get a grip. i am gonna do the sweet tooth challenge again. i did pretty well when i did it the first time. i am gonna be better this time. more aware. blog more. read posts and comment more.
this time i am in it to win it~~~
