The YMCA indoor pool is back up and going. And I've been to Cardio H2O three times so far this week. I'm so proud of me!!! If I can get in there tomorrow and Saturday I will have reached my goal of five times this week! I know I don't HAVE to go 5 times a week, but I'm trying to get it in my mind that I HAVE to do it 5 times a week. If I think I can get away with minimum, I'll do the minimum. So 5 days a week of cardio, I'm gonna get this weight off of me.
When I checked in on Tuesday I hadn't lost any weight, but I hadn't gained any either. So I guess that's a good thing! But its my fault because I didn't work out at all for two weeks! So I'm back to working out consistently. I've got to get in the groove again. I've started again! So proud of me!
I've got 28 more days to go. 28 days til VEGAS!!!!!!!!! woohoo!!!!! I can't wait! I am hoping and praying that I start dropping the pounds! I want to be below 300 by the time I get to Vegas. So I'm going to continue to work hard and reach that goal! 28 days to go!!!!
I'm on the road to my goal. One day at a time.
Oh, I did reward myself with picking the movie for movie night. Tomorrow I am planning to go get my mani/pedi. (If I have nothing else come up!) When I lose 50 lbs, my reward is going to be either a spa treatment or massage! I haven't decided which I want yet! Guess that's something I should start working on. My next short term goals...

Today I met with my "fitness coach" and completed the fitness assessment. To start she figured out my measurements, and my BMI and fat percentage. My BMI is 50.1 and my fat is 48.3 percent. I was like almost half of my weight is fat?!?!?!?! Next, I had to walk/run a mile as quick as I could, pushing myself to get my heart rate up. I did a mile in 18.5 minutes. Then she had me lifting weights. With my arms I was able to lift 100 lbs. And with my legs I was able to do 150 lbs.
For now she wants me to do 4 days of cardio at minimum. If I can fit it in 5 days a week, that would be better. She said I don't need to worry about the weight training because I am ok on that. She said that I need to get rid of this weight first and maybe later on down the road we can worry about weight training.
I have to work in MORE vegetables and fruit into my diet! Which I already knew that but seems to me that this eating healthy is going to get EXPENSIVE!!!!
I stopped by the nurse's office to get a check on my blood work.... My levels looked like this:
Glucose: My level: 99
Cholesterol: My level: 165
Range: less than 200
Triglyceride: My level: 138
Range: less than 150
HDL Cholesterol: My level: 40
Range: more than 60
Calc LDL Cholesterol: My level: 98
Range: less than 100
Non HDL Cholesterol: My level: 125
She said that overall I was good. But my "Good cholesterol" was low.
I am relieved to know that sugars and cholesterol are good. That means that for now I'm doing ok. I just have to get this weight off of me. I've kinda fell off this week. I haven't done anything since the pool closed. I miss going to the pool...
Anyway I had to work for one hour today. Then I took my resume to a business because they said I had to "personally hand" my resume to the Manager... Well guess what the manager wasnt' there when I went by there today. So I left my resume any way. Then I came home. And was home for maybe 10 minutes when I had to leave again for an interview with a totally different business. The interview lasted about an hour and 10 minutes! WOW right!? We talked about why she's hiring for a new person and all the drama that surround that previous employee. How hard is it to do your job when you are at work!? LOL I'm hoping and praying very hard that I get this job. I'd love to work full time again!!!! No benefits but the pay is pretty good! And if I start working full time, I'll have to go to the Y after work! Wow talk about some long and busy days! But nothing is going to stop me from losing this weight.
We have 43 days til Vegas!!! I'm determined to lose more weight before I get on that plane. I want to be able to buckle the seat belt without asking for an extension!!!! Think its possible??? Well, we shall see! Let the fun begin!!!!!!!!!!
