Insulin & Sugar Busters

Monday, October 15, 2012

So I went to the Dr.'s yesterday & I found out that the cause of my weight is because I have an insulin problem. So now I'm on metformin & I've been put on the Sugar Buster's diet. That's going to be rough for me because I'm asian & we love our white rice. So it's time to learn to love chewy brown rice. But I'm down to 231.7 now, whooo!! I'm feeling good. I was a little disappointed to find out that I have to be on metformin but I'm happy to know what was wrong with me the whole time. I'm terrible at tracking what I eat but I'm going to try. I've been increasing my kettlebell exercises as well, I'm up to 50 wings at a time now, sometimes even 75. Overall, I love my progress. It's only going to be downhill from here, which is great. :P


Ring Kettlebell~

Monday, September 24, 2012

Wow I can't believe next month is Halloween. Time goes so quickly.

So I rejoined SP and so far I've been pretty consistent. I could do better in the nutrition department though. Will be needing to shop for fruit since I ate the only apple in the house yesterday. But yesterday morning was the first time I've gone for a walk in months. It was a good 20 minutes before my calves started stiffing up but it was nice. I've also been following some of Coach Nicole's fitness video, my favourite so far is the kick boxing ones.

I think what I'm excited for most is the kettlebell challenge. I did my first 4 sets of 25 reps on my 20lb kettlebell last night. I can definitely feel it working too! Will be trying to do a few sets before I head off for work this morning.

Will be wearing my Pokewalker today to see how many steps I manage to take at work. Will also be doing some of the ab workout while I'm at my computer desk.

Here's to working towards 50 lbs lighter! Huzzah!

    You can do it! :D
I know I was the same way at first. Just take it slow, because if you go too fast you might exert yourself too much and want to give up. If you need any food advice feel free to message me! ^-^ I've got some great health choices I created ever since my new diet started.
You really don't look like you are 230lbs. I can only imagine how you will look when you reach your goal! :D emoticon
