6-Week Challenge

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

The hectic commitment of two businesses and doctoral studies provided limited time to workout. Over eighteen months, I did not workout. I adhered to a strict diet, but I was unable to maintain my weight of 135 pounds without strength training and cardiovascular workouts. Today, I revamped my schedule to allow for workouts and batch cooking. Join me as I peel off the unwanted weight. When I begin any weight loss journey, I am not obsessive about the scale. I weight myself weekly, but use my clothing and the mirror as a guide. Join me on this 6-Week Challenge as I will complete 4-minutes of cardio and 45-60 minutes of strength training 5-6 days per week. My food consumption is 1300-1500 daily.
Good luck on you journey.

    This is my birthday weekend, so I took my out to lunch and indulged in fried calamari and a cannoli. I also put in double workouts: fasted cardio and evening strength training. According to the mirror, the body is shrinking. I will weigh-in next week. emoticon

I am back...

Friday, August 08, 2014

Over the past few years, I was non-participatory as it relates to communicating via SP. After battling to lose 100 pounds, I was the victor. Over the past three years, I put on 15 pounds due to losing focus on working out and a clean diet. I am on a mission to lose 15 pounds and maintain a healthy lifestyle (AGAIN). Using SP makes me accountable. This week consisted of the following activities:
- 2 mile fast walk- M, W,F
- strength training- Su, T, Th

I am kicking it up a notched and increasing to 4 days of cardio this week (2 day intervals and 2 days steay-state).

Happy Snacks during my Happy Thanksgiving...

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

This is the time most of us indulge. My plan is to indulge with Happy Snacks. My family will be visiting and I plan to make all the dressings of a Goodman's Thanksgiving Feast (i.e. fried shrimp, bbq ribs, pork sausage, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato pies, german chocolate cake, rice and peas, beef patties, kales and turnips, etc.). No, we do not want a big baked turkey. On the other hand, I will make myself Happy Snacks (i.e. huge romaine salad with cucumber, green beans, kales and turnips, toasted Ezekial Bread with homemade peanut butter and bananas, grilled chicken breast, grilled shrimp, pistachios, and baked sweet potatoes with Fage yogurt). What are you cooking??? Do you plan to indulge????


Made My Goal..

Monday, August 08, 2011

Saturday morning I approached the scale knowing I hit my goal weight, 130.8 (hoorrayyy!!). I finally made it. It feels great!!!! I must continue to push. My birthday is 10 days away. The big 4-3 is right around the corner. My new goal is 125. I hope to be down to 128 pounds by my birthday because I intend to eat 1 piece of cake, enjoy a small calamari, have a little peanut butter and enjoy my cheat meal on August 19th. Yes, I am enjoying some sweets, but I deserve it. After this indulgence, I will immediately get back on my journey (August20) and have an hour of intense cardio on Saturday (August 21st) morning.

The flat stomach was created by eating clean, strength training and cardio.

If you are on your journey, stay true to yourself. You know will make your goals too...

Did NOT Make My Goal, but...

Friday, July 29, 2011

This month my goal was to reach 130 pounds. Unfortunately, I am 131.4. I did not reach my goal, but I am proud of myself because I am still pushing. I have been on a journey to keep my weight below 140 since 2005. Yes, it is a long time. I do not want to revisit 225 pounds. At 225 pounds, it was sedentary, tired, out of shape and ashamed of how much weight I gained over three years. Although some women carry their weight in all the right places, I did not!!! I had wide hips, a flat tush and a flabby stomach. At 131.4, I feel better about what I represent on the outside. Weight loss has been the hardest journey I have ever encountered. Those who are having difficulty, keep pushing!!! It is easier to surround yourself with people who live a healthy lifestyle, then those who just talk about it...

I will keep pushing... You should too!!!!
