First gain...

Sunday, April 01, 2012

So compared to last sunday I gained 0.4 lbs this week. However, I am being positive. 1st... I am still 4 lbs ahead of schedule. In order to be 160 by my Aug vacation I had to lose 2 lbs a week. My goal weight for today was to be 198 and I am 194. I also know that I was not able to exercise like I wanted to this week. I worked out Monday evening and then did the treadmill before work on Tues. Since tues the side of my foot has been in a lot of pain. It feels like I am walking on the outside of my foot instead of stepping straight down on my foot. I got a pedicure Thurs and yesterday I got a massage at my favorite spa. My foot felt better during the pedicure and massage. This morning it isn't hurting too bad so I think I'm going to try to do the gym again. However, I feel like not being able to do the gym impacted my weight loss this week. I also made plans with a coworker to start walking on the track before school. I am very excited to start that up after spring break. I can also say with confidence that I did not eat poorly.

Calories this week...
Sunday- 1269
Monday- 1504
Tues- 1547
Wed- 1225
Thurs- 1344
Fri- 1041
Sat (yesterday)- 1191

Even on Monday when I went to my parents house for a BBQ I still stuck to water and ate appropriately. I am also excited to say that my bf signed up for SP and is looking to lose some weight. I bought the Spark book for a few of my friends. I also bought the FitBit last night! I LOOOOOVE IT! I love the graph showing how long it took me to fall asleep, how many times I woke up during the night, my sleep efficiency, etc. It tracks the number of steps you take, the number of stairs you climb, the percentage of the day you were fairly active, moderately active, and very active, etc. I am very excited about tracking my steps again and starting to challenge my old records from 2008/2009. I have to leave to get ready for tutoring, but I am not going to let this very slight gain this week damper my spirits. My pants are still loose, I am still getting compliments, I like my pictures better, and I am still happy.

My new favorite quote from the spark book....

"You don't drown by falling in the water, only by staying there."

I just got this thing. Its too cool! Measures steps taken, distance traveled, stairs climbed and calories burned Via the 3D motion sensor and altimeter. Also measures how long and well you sleep. Shows how many times u woke up. Auto sends the data to the website for u. It was on one of the ads shown on SP... excited to try it out. Http://m.bestbuy.com/m/e/product/detail.js

    Ya, it's the FitBit. LOVE IT! I love the graph that shows you how many times you woke up last night and your sleep efficiency. It shows you how long it took you to fall asleep and everything. I used to use a pedometer and was excited to log my steps, but now I have so much more info for my spreadsheets!

    I just got a Fitbit. It sounds similar to what you have. I haven't followed your link so I'm not aure what you're is called but so far I like my Fitbit. Isn't technology amazing!? I enjoy the numbers. Makes me feel like I am making progress even when the scale doesn't!

  This looks like exactly what I was looking for! I was using another one - Jawbone Up but it still had too many glitches for it to work well. I would be curious to know how well this one works for you. Keep us posted!

Spread the spark to my school...

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

So I started a "no soda challenge" in my school. I have many students and co-workers who have already joined the challenge (I am up to 16 people and I sent out the idea less than an hour ago). We are going to do prize drawings at the end of the year for people who can stick with it. Let's go!

    After the 3 classes I teach and emailing the staff at my school I have 50 ppl signed up! I see another 3 classes of different kids tomorrow.

Alicia- Tonic looks like it's up there in sugar. I'd say it is probably pretty darn close to soda. People were asking me today what about adult "teacher" beverages in the "no soda challenge." My thoughts are that if you aren't completely ready to do water 100% all day every day then to make a goal for the number of adult beverages per month and then stick to that as part of your challenge. If you decide the quota ahead of time then you are still in control and are still challenging yourself.

Brit and water and milk were our daily drink,having said that I must say that I enjoy a
G&T as a summer drink. Is tonic classified as a soda.?

new goal update

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

So I officially worked out before school this morning! I woke up at 5, was out of the house by 5:25, was at the gym at 5:40, did the treadmill for 35 mins, was done the treadmill at 6:20, left the gym at 6:30, and was at my school at 7:00. It felt great! Now that I know it doesn't take an hour to get to school from my gym then I can work out a little longer. Super excited:)

It is also my 50th day of being soda free (and by soda I mean any kind of beverage that isn't water)

new goal

Sunday, March 25, 2012

I have decided that I want to be a morning worker outer lol. I want to get up before school and work out in the morning. I am determined that at least one day this week I will get up at 5, leave the house at 530, work out from 545-615, leave the gym at 630, and be to work at 730. I want to eventually make that a daily routine and possibly bump the time up so i can work out longer. I used to get up at 430 and be at school by6 when i first started teaching, so whats stopping me from working out early? This week: at least one day... future goal: everyday. Ready to accomplish my goals:)
