BOA - Week 11 Monday

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

I woke up this morning feeling like someone drove a truck over my head. Add to that a swollen throat and a runny nose and I think I'm safe in saying that I have a (not so lovely) head cold. As long as it stays in my head, I'm good. I can deal.

Last week, I accomplished MOST of my goals. I did bootcamp 1 out of 3 days.
I ran three times and I walked once.
I consumed approximately 15,612 calories in seven days
I exercised and burned 3,222.
I helped a friend move on Saturday and managed to burn 1,050
My BMR is 1332 so that's a natural burn of 9,324.
15,612 - 2,172 - 9,324 - 1050 = 3,066
I did NOT create a deficit of 3500 calories so I probably did not lose any weight. I didn't weigh myself today because I wasn't feeling well and I usually don't when I'm sick.

I have to make sure I get enough rest to get over this ASAP.

My plan for this week is:
Bootcamp 2-3 times.
Run 4 times
Walk 1 time
Count calories and stay within range 5/7 days
Drink 2L of water daily
Eat 6-7 servings of fruit and vegetables daily
At least 7 hours of sleep every night

On that note, I'd better get to bed.

  


BOA - Week 10 Saturday

Sunday, November 30, 2008

Monday - Bootcamp - DONE
Tuesday - 5km walk - DONE 53 minutes (9:30/km)
Wednesday - Bootcamp - DONE, 4 km run - Done & 3 km run - DONE
Thursday - NOTHING :~)
Friday - Bootcamp - NOT DONE, Walking - 1 hour (no distance, garmin died)

Calories consumed Friday: 2116
Fruit: 1
Vegetables: 1
Calories burned: unknown, I walked for over an hour but my garmin was dead

Calories consumed Friday: 2600+
Fruit: 0
Vegetables: 0.5
Calories burned: unknown, helped a friend move for 3 hours so that has to count for something, right?

I really feel ashamed of myself for the past two days. I've definitely NOT been leading by example. I'll do better tomorrow. I'm starting with a 10km run.

    Never feel ashamed P. Move on. Helping someone move is a free day (in my opinion). There are so many things going on in that, that it is hard to eat properly on one of those days. And there are huge calorie burns to moving -- especially if there are stairs involved.

Have a great 10 K today!

    Way to go! 2000 calories is not tooo shabby!!! Especially since it's only Wednesday (and there's still Thursday, Friday and Saturday to get more calories burned in, WOOT!)

You will do great this week!

How do your friends and/or family members help motivate you to lose weight?

Thursday, November 27, 2008

I was motivated to lose weight because, at 180+ pounds, I could not keep up with two toddlers. At the time, my friends and family did NOT support me at all. In fact, most of my efforts were remarked about negatively . When I broke free from that family, that all changed. I met someone who loved me as I was but encouraged me to undertake anything that would make me happier and healthier.
Nowadays, I have surrounded myself with new friends and new family members. (read: new inlaws) Things are better now. My immediate family is following (mostly) my healthier lifestyle. They all eat better, two of them have taken an interest in running.... THAT encourages me to do better/more.
I'm motivated now because I discovered a passion for fitness and for helping others reach their goals.
