I turned my day around!

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

So I set my alarm to go off at 5:30 am this morning so I could take my Tuesday 6 mile walk. I didnt get up because I have had a sore throat for the last couple days and I was afraid the cold air would make it worse. (excuse? maybe) so when I woke up two hours later I was upset with myself and decided to figure out how to work the 6 miles into my day. I take my niece to dance on tuesdays ...she is there for and 1.5 hours so I decided that when I dropped her off I would leave my car in the parking lot and walk away from it for 45 min then turn around and walk back. Then I took her home and took another 40 min walk .... came home mapped it out and emoticon I got my 6 miles for the day! emoticon By the time I got home it was afternoon so breakfast if long gone ....I decided I ate enough crap last night right before bed and moved onto lunch...it is logged ....I'm feeling pretty good right now.....Unfortunately In 5 minute it could be a whole new story....I'm trying to figure out what would be good for dinner but, only bad food ideas are popping in my head. emoticon

    You can do it!! Just chose to eat healthy, even though it is so tempting not to!! I'm having a southwest salad for dinner. With black beans, avocado, and pea guacamole dressing!! Just for a little dinner inspiration!!

    Good job turning it around. Try the chicken breast stuffed with provolone and asparagus recipe. Yum!

I hate to admit it!

Well it looks like I'm not ready for maintenance right now ... not counting calories is made my food choices OUT OF CONTROL emoticon so it looks like I'm going to have to count calories through the summer ....I'm thinking if I walk 60 miles a month I should be able to eat 1500-1600 calories and still lose 1 pound a week.....so we will try that and see what happens emoticon

p.s. Fruityful.....I need you!!!

  I haven't been tracking for over a year. I know I need to because I have not lost a pound since I stopped. I just wish there was a way you could type all your food in at once and it would give you your total. Instead of putting in each food in one at a time. I know this is an excuse but with working 60 plus hours a week it is tough taking the time to putting my food into a tracker. Thanks for sharing and sorry to vent. Just been another long week. emoticon

    Yes, counting calories and fitness seems to go hand and hand. Itís amazing to find out how many calories are in my favorite meals. I understand now why I didnít lose weight. My calorie in-take was off the scale. Good Luck!

    I am here...but not counting. I am not making good food choices. I am letting stress get to me. I know I will feel better if I just get back on track, but I'm letting outside influences stress me out to where I can't focus on it right now. If you start tracking, then I will start tracking. I promise!

    I agree....good plan! So check this out. I had every intention of getting up early and walking this morning, but I hit the off button on my alarm and went back to sleep for another 1.5 hours. It was lovely, but no exercise. I too am getting up early to walk for an hour. Aren't you 1 hour ahead of me? I need to get up at 5am. We should call each other if it's only a 1 hr. time difference!

Maintaining so far...

Sunday, April 22, 2012

It's been 2 weeks and here is my progress:

So far I have not been able to work in my 2-3 days of Cardio ...I know I went from 7 days a week to I dont have time for 2 or 3 Really? So this week I have scheduled a Tuesday & Thursday workout ...I will get those done.

I also haven't been eating well during the week so that eating crap and having drinks on the weekend are ok ....but, I'm still eating crap and having drinks on the weekend! So this week I have set a goal to eat well breakfast and Lunch Mon-Saturday and only eat crap and drink Saturday evening and Sunday lunch...

Anyways .....so far I have been going back and forth from 188.8-192.0 ..I think that's pretty good...as long as I stay under 192.0 that's maintaining right?

The next work contest I believe is going to be starting a little earlier than I was wanting .. August instead of September / October...but, when ever it does I plan to be participating....I am planning a cruise to the Virgin Islands / Bahama's next May 2013 and I would like to be to my goal of 129 lbs by then.
