Plugging Along...

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Well I only got in 30 minutes of exercise today which , gain isn't bad but it isnt as much as I need to be doing. Tomorrow I'll get to it earlier in the day so I have more time, today I didn't even make it down to the elliptical until 8:30pm! I'm looking forward to weighing next Weds, I really need to start seeing some results to keep my motivation going! I'm forcing myself to exervise no matter what though, it's too hard to start it back up again once you stop....so my plan is to not stop this time! Day 8 of my streak, not too bad!

Going in the right direction

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Well, today was my weigh in day and I lost 2.5 lbs. I know I should be happy with that number and I guess I mostly am but I was just hoping for a bigger loss. I guess though if I take into account that it is the week of my period and the fact that my calories were all on high end of my limits most days then the number makes sense. Oh well, it is what it is and atleast it's going down and not up!

My goals for this new week are to keep better track of my calories and keep them down on the lower end of my range. I'm also going to incorporate 3 days of weight training in addition to my 60 minutes of cardio each day.

    You just wait until that time of the month is over and I bet you'll drop down another 3-5 pounds! No matter how good you eat and exercise, you retain water during your period!

You're doing great, keep it up! Kudos to you,

Exercise Streak - Day 4

Saturday, April 25, 2009

Okay so it's day 4 of my exercise streak nad the weekends are normally where my streaks end...lol so I'm pretty proud that I made myself get on that elliptical today and just do it! I am a little disspointed that I only made enough time to do 30 minutes today instead of the 60 that I have done the last 3 days but I'm not going to beat myself up over it too much, 30 minutes is still pretty good and it's definitely better than nothing!

    Congratulations on your streaking!!!! 17 more days and it should be a 'habit' -- isn't it 21 days they say make a habit??? I think that might be true of some things - not so sure about exercise!!! Especially for ME!!!
Keep it up - your motivating to all of us!!

Day 3 of my streak

Friday, April 24, 2009

Woke up this morning feeling hopeful and actually pretty positive! Today will be day 3 of my exercise streak, the last two days I have done 60 minutes on the elliptical which is amazing because it's usually a struggle just to make it through 30 minutes. I never really understand how or why my motivation comes back, all I know that it is back and I need to find a way to build on it and keep it around for a while this time. Florida is coming soon, only 15 weeks left and I have accepted that I will not be at my ultimate goal weight by then so I've made a new goal to just be below 200 by Aug. 1st - is that realistic? I hope so, I know that if I keep up with my exercise 15 weeks is long enough to completely change my mind set and thus hopefully make a few changes to my body so I don't feel like a big blob on this vacation that I'm looking SO forward to! I can do it!!! I just have to remember that every day will not be perfect and little changes in the end make a big difference!

    It's a constant struggle - isn't it? I have to talk to myself every day to keep the motivation going. You're doing a great job. I think you can get to Onederland in 15 weeks. I have only managed to lose 10 pounds since November.

Good luck girlie....keep up that streak!!!

DAY 1

Sunday, July 13, 2008

Yikes....So when I woke up this morning I still felt the same level of resolve that I felt last night when I blogged....that's huge for me. I had a healthy breakfast and I'm typing it in this morning. It's a beautiful, sunny day today and I feel like maybe I could accomplish anything. :)

    are you still back? I was looking at your spark page and seeing that you've had a hard time sticking to spark. I was just curious. ;)
