Imagine that! Oh and the last day of week four

Sunday, March 22, 2009

This morning I showed Richard my pre-Spark photo from my Sparkpage.... he said "who's that?". He honestly didn't recognize me. He's often told me how proud he is of me and it really does my heart and mind good. BUT. Today was different because he REALLY got to see how far I've come. It's so nice to be with someone who appreciates the work that I put into my fitness and health. emoticon

Last week's goals were:
Nutritional - stay within calories 5/7 days. - NOT DONE - achieved once
Drink at least 2L of water per day - NOT DONE - 6/7
Cardio - at least 30 minutes on 5 days - NOT DONE - 4/5
Strength - NOT DONE- 1/3
Stretch - remember to stretch after every workout - DONE
Blog - at least twice to keep yourself accountable - DONE
RELEASE ONE POUND - to be decided in the morning.

    That must have been such a nice feeling - having one of the person you care the most about saying out loud how incredible is what you have achieved so far! I'm really happy for you! Congrats!
I remember thinking the same thing when I saw an obvious 'old' picture of you on facebook - I couldn't believe how much you'd lost from your lower area! This is awesome. I really thought that people with 'larger' bottoms could work as hard as they could without ever getting rid of it. I guess you proved me wrong! Again, congrats!!!

5% Challenge - end of week three

Monday, March 16, 2009

Last weeks challenges didn't end so well for me.
Nutritional - stay within calories 5/7 days - NOT EVEN CLOSE
Cardio - 180 minutes - 243 MINUTES COMPLETED
Strength - 50 squats, 50 pushups, 50 crunches, 3 planks 3 days (This one's tough - you can substitute 3 good days of strength training if you prefer) - NONE DONE AT ALL
Stretch - remember to stretch after every workout - DONE
Blog - at least twice to keep yourself accountable - JEEZ LOUISE! I DIDN'T EVEN DO THIS ONE.

So I guess I have a lot of room for improvement this week. My challenges are:
Nutritional - stay within calories 5/7 days. Drink at least 2L of water per day.
Cardio - at least 30 minutes on 5 days
Strength - 50 squats, 50 pushups, 50 crunches, 3 planks (3 days) OR 3 strength workouts.
Stretch - remember to stretch after every workout
Blog - at least twice to keep yourself accountable
RELEASE ONE POUND

Dangit!! this week I HAVE to commit. My health deserves it.

  


5% Challenge - End of week two

Monday, March 09, 2009

Nutritional - include 5 servings of fruit and vegetables in your "diet" daily- DONE 6/7 DAYS
Cardio - at least 30 minutes on 5 days - 4/5 DONE
Strength - 50 squats, 50 pushups, 50 crunches, 3 planks 3 days - 1/3
Blog at least twice - DONE
"water" goal of 2L per day - 6/7 DONE
"staying within calories" at least 5/7 days - NOT DONE 0/7

Except for the fact that I didn't stay within my calories once last week, I am happy with how things turned out. There was only one day that I didn't drink all of my water and one day that I didn't eat all my fruits and veggies. I didn't do 5 x 30 minutes of cardio but I did do 2.5 hours total so that's pretty good.
I'm kind of looking foward to tomorrow's weigh in just to see if I will gain anymore weight. Gawd, I hope not.

  


Seriously

Calories for March 5: 1969/1770
Fruit/Veggies: 9 - 4/5
Water: 2L
Cardio/Strength: none - I'm not feeling well
Stretching: done (I stretched with my clients today)

I think I'm getting sick again. Or maybe it's just because of my pills/period that I feel so crappy.

  Hahah yes, I did have a hunch that you would read my blog :) Three cheers for showing a loss on the scale to you too! I agree, holding onto that loss is what i find hard, perhaps tomorrows class will help us with that.

Hope you aren't feeling sick today, thats no fun!

Oh yes, I almost forgot to say that I am very happy to report no reaction from running!! Woohoo!

Calories for March 4: 2155/1770
Fruit/Veggies: 4 - 2/2
Water: 3L
Cardio/Strength: 7.25 km (5 hills) run, 54:11
Stretching: done

I still have not got a handle on the eating thing. I think I'm going to need to talk to my friend Shelley about what I should be eating instead of what I have been eating. OR maybe I might just do the Spark menu for a few (8) weeks. See how that goes.
I've consumed 6,630 calories since Monday
I've burned 1,085 calories since Monday
That's a difference of 5,545
So my calories per day is 1,848. That's still 78 calories over EVERY single day.

Yup, it's time to go back to the Sparkpeople menu. Joy oh Bliss. I guess I'll go see what I'm goind to be eating tomorrow. I hope it's tasty.
(I should apply for the Last 10 Pounds Bootcamp)
