I'm up 3.6 lbs!!! Pipes are still clogged even after taking many different measures. I'm hoping that's the only reason for the gain.
Tuesday I worked out for an hour and got more than 17,000 steps on my pedometer and stayed within calorie range, same for Wednesday. Yesterday I was on the treadmill for 70minutes and still ate in my calorie range, the lower end.
With my program being spot on I'm sure the gain has to be from other bodily sources!
So I'll keep on keeping on, doing what I've been doing and hope when the scale decides to budge that it will not only lose these extra 3.6 lbs but a bit more as a reward for my hard work for the past three days.

Two days ago was my official weekly weigh-in day. After weighing in on Tuesday I was thrilled with my loss and saw that I was .6 pounds away from losing a total of 25lbs.
Of course I wanted to see that .6 off sooner rather than later. Tuesday and Wednesday I walked on the treadmill for an hour! I've been watching my food closely and have gotten more water than planned in. Today's scale didn't show a loss of that .6 lbs but a GAIN of a pound. I know the reason, my pipes are clogged!!! So today I'll be increasing my fiber and making sure I get enough water.
Tomorrow WILL be the day that I can claim a 25lb loss. Watch out scale, and take note body, I'm in charge and THIS will happen!
5K Your Way - Walking
Assignment: 30 min
Goal: 30 min, 1.5 miles
I didn't go into this morning's workout with any intense plan, I just wanted to get it crossed of my "To Do" list. Woke up at 5:30, quietly tip-toed out to the garage, and got on the treadmill. I was tired and my body didn't want to do it. I planned on keeping it at a pace of 3mph but quickly decided to up it just a tad so did 26 min at 3.2mph.
Since I am trying to push my body a bit right now to make sure I get some weight off I'll be doing 30 more minutes of exercise sometime today. Tomorrow I'll take it easy because Saturday will be my official 5K for my program! Once I get that done I'll be working on cutting down my time. I don't know if I'm ready to jog yet, I'm afraid I still have too much weight than what my body will want to support in a jog.

Today was weigh in day and I get to wave to 5.6lbs!!! That makes a total loss of 19.4 pounds in 5 weeks! Just .6 away from 20!!!!!!!
Normally I would be content with a 2lb loss, or pretty much any. As long as I lose something each month I know by the end of the year I'll be healthier and more fit!
BUT...until May 12th I want to lose AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE while eating healthy, within calorie range and exercising! May 12th is the day I board an airplane to go visit my brother and his family. I'm nervous, I'm afraid I'm going to be stuck between two people and overflow on both of them. I can't reserve seats ahead of time so I am praying for an aisle seat or even a window.
I'm also worried about the seatbelt, I really don't want to ask for a seatbelt extension. I guess if I had to choose between the two I'd ask for the seatbelt extension if I could have an aisle seat. For some reason I've got stuck in my mind that if I can just get below 300lbs I'll be able to fit, or at least feel more comfortable about myself and in-turn about the flight.
Anyway, for now I'm focusing on the POSITIVE...I weigh 305.6!!!!!
Happy Tuesday Everyone!
P.S. I went on a 45 min walk yesterday...YAY...so my total workout time was 90min for yesterday. I also took the time to READ. I haven't really read in the past 5 weeks, it's too connected with my bad behavior. In the past sugary junk food was always a part of my leisure reading time. Not last night. AHHhhh, it felt so good to relax with something I love! I absolutely LOVE reading!
I woke up at 5:30 this morning and walked on the treadmill for 30min!!!

Assignment: 40 min
Goal: 2.5 miles in 45 min
I have to admit, I hit the OFF button on my alarm when it went off at 5:30. My second alarm was set for 6:30 to wake my husband up and that's when I got out of bed too. Darn ME!!! So I had to wait until I got 5 of my kids off to school, saw my husband out the door and then waited for my 18-year-old to wake up so she could watch my youngest. Thankfully she gladly did it and I was able to hit the treadmill at 9:30.
I was watching episode 3 from this Season of Biggest Loser. They always have some motivational phrases! I'm glad they did because today was TOUGH I don't know if it was because of my long walk on Saturday or what (I took a rest day yesterday). I kept thinking about the numbers, how many more minutes, oh no I have to go faster to get my mileage in. Then Brett said what I used for the rest of my workout, "Don't think, just do!" From that point on I just focused on breathing correctly and keeping my feet moving.
Incline kept at 2.0, speed was at 3.2 and 3.3. I didn't quite meet my goal of 2.5 miles in the 45 minutes but I did do 2.43!
Another thing that caught my attention during that episode was Dr. H's visit with the different teams. He told Sara (pink team) that she was 58% body fat, the highest on the show! He told her if she wants to get healthy and stay healthy she had to commit to 90minutes of exercise six days a week. I remember a couple of years ago another contestant, after her season, said for her to keep her weight off she has to workout 90min to 2hrs 6 days a week. I agree with this. For me exercise is key. I could eat an apple and gain weight.
I'm going to steer my thought process towards how I can incorporate 90 min. in a day and what different types I can do so I don't get burned out or put too much stress on any one body area.
Weigh-in is tomorrow! I took a little peak today and unless I gain it's going to be a GOOD one!!!
Happy Monday and let's have a MARVELOUS May!
