I really love this challenge! My ivory falcon pals have taught me so much about spark people, sticking with the program, eating, and the importance of excercise. Even small bouts of exce

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/

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.
