42:03 Baby!!!

Monday, October 06, 2008

So, I did another 5k yesterday and I came in at 42:03! I was so stoked! Also, the course had a TON of hills. I am sore today, but that's okay. I really believe that my bootcamp class is helping me. I am much stronger than I have been in many years and what a wonderful thing that is. Now, if I can just get my eating back on track, I would be stellar!

Need to get more sleep and more control. Need to get the Halloween candy OUT of my house! It will be gone by tomorrow. And, no...I am not going to eat anymore of it!

Have a great day! Another 5k on Sunday. I hope the course is a little more flat!

Making Progress!

Monday, September 29, 2008

WI went well yesterday. I am now at 198! Woohoo! I also went to the Race for the Cure but missed the 5k start. So, I did the 1 mile and was able to run (well, jog) 90% of it! I am stoked. Bootcamp has been helping quite a bit and our instructor makes us keep a log of all of our calories so I have to submit them on paper. That has been a strange experience. That is something that WW never really made us do. Today my instructor came and talked to me about stress eating while we were running. I'm sure other people overheard. Initially, I was a little embarassed, but thought...she is doing this because she wants me to be healthier and knows that's what I want to. It was not meant to be negative. I also thought, well if other people know, then they know. It's not like I can exactly hide my weight. I am okay with that which was surprising when I was thinking about it on the way home!

K - I need to get ready and head out to my client appointment. Have a great morning everyone!

I made it! For the first time in about two years, I am under 200 pounds! So excited...can you tell?

I also started Bootcamp yesterday and am so sore. I can't sit on the toilet without a little pain. TMI, but you know! We have to exercise 30-45 minutes on our off days and she wants seven days of exercise every week! Wow!

So here is my schedule now:

Monday: Bootcamp (60 min) and Zumba (60 min)

Tuesday: Body Sculpt (60 min) and Walk Treadmill for Cardio (20-30 min)

Wednesday: Bootcamp (60 min) and Zumba (60 min)

Thursday: Ball Pilates (60 min)

Friday: Bootcamp (60 min)

Saturday: Walk at the Beach (45 min)

Sunday: Walk at the Beach (45 min)

I don't know if I can keep it up, but I will try! I wonder if I will so a gain this week because of so much exercise. I know that can play a major part in the day.

Today is the first day of Biggest Loser too! Excited! K, I need to get to work!

    Hurray Shelle!

Zumba - I started in a class this month and love it! I wear my heart rate monitor and am burning about 560 calories in an hour class!

Maybe this week!!!

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

So...I weighed myself this morning. Yes, I have a bad habit of weighing myself each morning. I think it is because I feel more in control when I do. Anyhow, the scale read 199!!! I am so excited! I am a little worried though. In the past when I have hit some kind of milestone, I tend to unconsciously sabotage myself. I am aware of it now, but I am a little worried. I think I will make it this week, I just need to focus and maintain my positive decisions.

For the last three weigh in's, I have been at 200.6 which is very frustrating. The thing I changed this week to try to budge the scale is increase my water intake. I found a water calculator online and it said that I should be drinking 3.4 liters of water a day. I was only getting 6-8 glasses. It was a major increase for me and I can see it is paying off. Who would have thought that water, not calories in or calories out (exercise) can change the scale so dramatically!

I am stoked!

Plateau Frustrations

Monday, September 08, 2008

I weighed in yesterday and I am officially at a plateau. I was exactly the same to the tenth of a pound! Very frustrating. I weighed myself this morning and lost a pound!

I am going to stick with it this week and try to not eat any of my WPA's. I have also started tracking my calories in Sparkpeople again. My goal will be to stay within my points, but also make sure my calories don't go over 1500. I think that there is something that I am missing somewhere that is keeping me at this weight. Maybe it is just an adjustment because I am on the brink of 25#'s. Also, TOM plays a hand for 2 weeks out of the month for me.

Also, I have upped my water intake to three liters for the last two days and I think that is making a difference. I will just have to take it in stride. Next week I will make 1derland. If I don't, I am going to keep aiming for it. That is my immediate goal!
