FITOCRACY!

Friday, April 06, 2012

I'm obsessed! It's an online tool that you use to track your exercise, whether it be a cardio class such as Zumba, weightlifting and reps, or just plain cardio! You get achievements and level up with how many points you get! LOVE it. They even have an app for iPhones! Follow me there as I don't track my workouts on spark anymore - goldnglitter :)

  


SCALE issues part II - SO frustrating!

Monday, June 20, 2011

Well, I'm up another 2lbs. How interesting.. I now weigh 137. This makes 0 sense to me seeing as how the last time I ate a ton of food/binged was 5 days ago.. and before that it was 17 days ago (yes I've been keeping track). I've exercised consistently all throughout these times. I've only had 2 rest days this month so I'm confused as to why the scale is refusing to go down.. really wanting to throw it out the window

    Agree with Balancedmp - I plateaued because I wasn't eating ENOUGH calories - increased intake and... bingo! There are lots of calculators on the web that tell you how many cals you should be burning and they seem quite different to Spark.
You also need to consider that muscle is heavier than fat, so if you're converting fat to muscle, you may gain.

    Have you measured yourself? Meausrements and picture taking is more accurate. Are you eating enough to keep up with what you are burning? Just a thought or two

:( Feeling down.

Sunday, June 05, 2011

I weighed myself this morning since I haven't in a long long time, and I'm up 2lbs. I don't see how this could happen because the last time I binged or ate a lot of bad foods was over 10 days ago.. I'm hoping that it's just water weight, because I do tend to drink a lot of water throughout the day. Last night though, I cut myself off at around 8pm. I weighed myself around 830am.. so you think the water I retained would've went down. I've exercised consistently too so to see me up 2lbs on the scale is really discouraging. Ah well... just need some motivation

    That is true. It's still so disappointing though, I'm dying to get out of the 130s and get closer to my goal! Thank you for the kind words, good luck and I hope that one pound gain on the scale goes down soon!

    Thanks for your blog. I can relate. I have been eating right and working my butt off and I gained a pound. It has been hard, but I continue to remind myself that the scale is only one way to monitor my success. My jeans are fitting better. I can walk a little further every couple of days. I have more energy so I don't take naps like I used to. Well, you get the idea. Please don't beat yourself up over this. Even when you reach your goal, your weight will still fluctuate a couple pounds in either direction from time to time. Just keep up the hard work and soon you will be rewarded with better health. All the best to you. ~ Eden

June 2011 Fitness/Eating Plan.

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

May has FLOWN by for me. I'm sad that June has come so fast! Soon enough it'll be September and another year of university will be started up again (boo!)

My fitness plan for June 2011:
1. 8 minute abs video - every. dang. day. Unless I'm camping or out of town for a couple nights.. that's the only eligible excuse for this one!

2. Keep up with insanity dvds.

3. Weight training! Follow the Rachel Mac workouts.. 4 days on and 7 off


Eating wise..

1. Keep my protein intakes up

2. GET MORE FIBRE INTO DIET. This has been difficult since I like having a 40/40/20 ratio at the end of the day, yet my fibre intake usually only ends up around 25.. I need to get this up!

3. Limit. alcohol. intake (aka- don't drink two times in one weekend). This is so hard during the summer months when cold beer and wine looks 1000x better and everyone is having parties.

4. Treat myself once to an ice cream if I WANT one badly. I've found that I say "no" to things even when I really do want it.. and then, when I have a "binge" day I literally go out of my way to make or buy this thing. Therefore I need to start having things that I crave once in awhile!

  


Update!

Sunday, May 08, 2011

So.. these were my goals I set for myself for the first week of May :

1. DO. NOT. BINGE. Overeating has been my enemy lately, I've been going downhill for the past week and I'm ready to start FRESH. I am not weighing myself until the end of this month, and I am LIMITING my junk food/drink intake to ONE day a week if needed.

* I did okay with this one. I had a "free meal" as I like to call it, and had a few slices of pizza.. usually after I eat a bad meal I will start eating tons of bad foods and binge. However I didn't do that this time! I did have a luna bar afterwards because I was craving something sweet, but those aren't totally bad for you. So I'm proud of myself for that one.. and as far as drinking goes, I did end up drinking but it was only one night this week. Got to live it up a little since summer is here!

2. Complete the Summer Bootcamp challenge which starts May 1st.

* Completed week 1, now onto week 2 :)

3. CARDIO - AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!! STRENGTH TRAINING IN AM!!

*I've been trying to get cardio in on my off days of strength training. I really don't like doing cardio/strength in the same day since it's more beneficial for you to do it on seperate days.. but I have been getting in extra cardio with some HIIT videos!

4. 40/40/20 ratios as much as possible!

*Doing well with this!



Crazy inspiration.. she's changed soo much
