Day 4

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

I did do weight training yesterday, even though I really didn't want to. That means that today I can watch my hockey game guilt free. I even did pretty well on calories. I haven't been hitting my range, but I also haven't been hitting my exercise goals. I think it balances out.


Day 3

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Yesterday was mostly successful. I didn't quite stay away from all the treats at work. It was someone's 65th so there was a cake. I had a very small piece. And there were the two pieces of chocolate. Even so, I managed to stay within my calorie range and I ate the lunch I brought even though I really didn't want to. I didn't want to. I didn't get a chance for exercise.

Today is much the same except I want to get some weight training in. Tomorrow there's a hockey game on so I don't want to put off 'til tomorrow what I can do today.

    Woo-Hoo! Way to kick it in gear with weight training. I'm avoiding the most sweets I can to prepare for all the holiday meals coming up. lol I love hockey jerseys for hiding my gut and be sure to take it easy on the game beers. I always gotta watch how much I drink when the fights are on. :D

Day 2

Monday, November 21, 2011

According to my tracker I was way under calories yesterday. Of course, I was also under on exercise. I made the time but not the calories. I'm fine with both.

The calorie intake I don't want to do too often. I should have at least hit 1200 but by the end of the day I'd had everything I wanted and I wasn't feeling hungry. So I didn't go searching for something to eat. Eating when I'm not hungry is one of the things I'm trying to fix.

The exercise differential is also okay with me. I did weights yesterday too. I'm sure that burns something but it doesn't show up on the tracker. I'm trying to ease back into exercise and not hurt myself. I'll start pushing myself at some point. Just not yet.

Today's challenge is to stay away from treats. The Christmas season is approaching and people are dropping treats off for the staff where I work all the time. My exercise time is being taken up by chauffeur duties so I have to be careful to hit my calories goals today.


Day 1 (Again)

Sunday, November 20, 2011

I fell off the wagon hard. Usually when I've been gone for a while I just start over with a new name and pretend my failures didn't happen. Obviously that's not working. So I'm keep all my (lack of) progress up to this point and I'm starting over. I've started my Fast Break again and I'm looking at things fresh. So, with that in mind, my blog is starting over from Day 1.

I'm going to use this space for the positives. Not always, but I want to focus on my successes; not my failures.

    I know what you mean. I have been off the wagon for a while too. I started a new profile. I am going to try my best to stay on top of this. Good luck on your weight loss.

Day 116

Thursday, November 17, 2011

I feel short on both Tuesday and Wednesday. I didn't log and I know I went over on Tuesday. I may not have on Wednesday but I had Starbucks in the evening so that probably did it. Especially considering that I haven't started exercising again. Today, I have to at least track everything.

I think I want to try to find a yoga class. I've been noticing that my flexibility is really lacking lately. I have a couple of yoga DVDs but it's hard to get a chance with the TV to use them. Or extra time anyway.

I'm considering changing my workouts because with the boys in skating on Saturday we were running into conflict.

Sunday: weight training and Wii Fit
Monday: Wii Fit
Tuesday: weight training or rest
Wednesday: weight training or rest
Thursday: Wii Fit
Friday: weight training
Saturday: Tae Bo DVD

If I were to take a yoga class it would have to be early morning on Monday or Friday or Tuesday or Wednesday evening. I remember looking before and having a tough time finding one that suited me.

Maybe for Christmas I'll ask for one of the Kinect workout games - Biggest Loser or Shape and do that rather than the Wii. The Wii is fun but it's not that intense of a workout and I don't know if it was doing me any good.
