First Boot Camp

Friday, June 14, 2013

So with the challenge going on at work, a coworker of ours decided to hold a boot camp sessions for free! Yesterday was the first, and boy am I out of shape! I have no upper body strength whatsoever. All this cardio I'm doing has really diminished my muscles! I felt weak, and so out of breath, but I'm not the only one...everyone is that way. There were only 6 of us and most of the guys couldn't even keep up! And it wasn't even a full workout, he went easy on us! I'm going to incorporate more strength training this week. What a motivator and wake up call this was for sure!

On another note, I joined a gym. I live in the boonies and have to drive an hour to work, where the gym is. Needless to say, I have yet to work out in the gym, but I have visited twice. Gonna take that leap and actually work out on Tuesday (I hope).

The Advocare products are working too! I feel energized, and my sense of well being is at a 10! I hopped on the scale, and I saw a 7 pound weight loss. WOW, in only a week? Now, that could be water weight but...dang! I haven't seen that number in a loooong time. I'm revved up.

    emoticon The great thing about strength training is after a few weeks you can see progress because most people can lift more by then. And I am sure if you keep up with boot camp your emoticon numbers will continue to go down! emoticon

IT seems as if Im always starting something new...

Sunday, June 09, 2013

And I never complete it! The couch 2 5k went down the drain...Just too humid outside to even think about running after work! Also, I'm in a funk with all of this it seems. I haven't been losing or gaining. Everything just seems slow. Today I started the 24 day challenge with Advocare products. I need something to help kick start this 5000.00 challenge. My hairdresser did it and lost 23 pounds. But she is a WARRIOR! She is doing the Total Body Performance, lost 30 pounds in 2 months, then did the challenge and lost an additional 23. I'm not that dedicated. Boot camp would be awesome, but I don't have anything local to me. I commute 2 hours a day so to drive where she goes is out of the question. (sounds like excuses...)

Day 1 of the challenge and I'm feeling a little hungry, and I have had a headache...hoping it goes away!

Also...I need friends on here! Please add me, I don't have much encouragement when times get tough...

$5000 Challenge

Thursday, June 06, 2013

We have a challenge at work. I really feel the goal is not healthy and unrealistic. To lose 25% of weight for 5000.00. That would put me at 135. Its not only getting there, but also maintaining. And also the time frame is 3 months. So about 40 pounds to lose. Ugh...I might as well skip it, but at least I can try! So even if I lose say half of that, it would be a major mile stone for me...

    Yes - you can try :) and even though 40 lbs is a big ask (and possibly too rapid a weight loss to keep it off permanently), you personally have everything to gain by taking part and losing some of those 40lbs :)

My ultimate goal weight is 135 lbs too . I am currently 184 lbs. a month ago i was 200.4 lbs (!!!!). I amesting really well and to be honest whilst i really do want to lose weight and get fitter, just the eating well is making me feel so much better about myself and i feel more positive and empowered.

So even if you dont officially take up the 50lbs challenge, DO set yourself you own target and work towards it. You are doing it for YOU and YOU are worth it :) emoticon

started my couch to 5k today

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Now I really don't understand why I can exercise and not lose any weight. But whatever...I'm in for the long hall and doing this for my health. So I started couch to 5k today and I'm going to do my best to achieve this goal. To run a mile would be fantastic. A 5k would be a miracle!
What's really keeping me motivated is my bodymedia arm band. I'm working on the lower spectrum with a total of 2500 calorie burn a day. I think it's working as far as making sure I make my steps but as far as the weight loss I think I need a food change. I dunno. I'm just going to keep on keeping matter what =)


Ok...Im going to whine right now

Horrible, horrible day, and its not over! I over ate... don't feel like exercising and feel like I will never get out of this weight range. Yes, I lost the extra weight I put on, but now I am at the weight that I have been at FOREVER! PLUS ITS THAT TIME OF THE MONTH! Ugh.
