october is 1/2 way through...

Thursday, October 18, 2007

and i haven't completed any of my personal goals. oh well! that's life. hopefully i will at least get hayds baby clothes sorted and put into the crawl space before next weekends toddler Halloween party.

i have been hitting the gym really hard this month so far doing a ton of cardio and mtc like circuits i have been creating on my own. although i am working out hard i have been super hungry this week and have made a few poor food choices.

last week the weather was great. i think there is one day of partial sun in the 14 day forecast! welcome to a vancouver winter.

i am addicted to tim horton's bagels and tea. seriously need to stop for physical and financial reasons. those darn bagels (even though i get whole wheat ones) are loaded with sodium along with the sodium loaded cream cheese.

i need to eat more veggies so i don't rely on bread for my carb intake. that is my goal for the rest of this week.

    Could you eat half a bagel and bring fresh fruit or vegetables (thinking slices of tomato -- which is actually a fruit, but I'm thinking vegetable here -- or green peppers or cucumbers to go along with it? I would bring a slice of low fat part-skim mozzarella cheese instead of cream cheese. Or fat free cottage cheese? Or a hard boiled egg? And then save the other half of the bagel for lunch? This does not solve the financial reasons for not eating at Horton's, of course.

October Goals

Saturday, October 06, 2007

This month although I will watch what I eat and still exercise I plan on focusing on some other areas of my life.

In October I WILL:
1) Put away Hayden's baby clothes (he is almost 2)
2) Continue to eat better to feel better
3) Make time for myself (other than the gym)
4) Get help with our debt


mtc complete!

Thursday, October 04, 2007

so i have completed mtc!!! yeah me! wish it was a day i didn't feel all bloated and gross though. however, i did take my pics and measurements.

to me i don't see a massive difference in the pics but i can sure feel a difference.

my abs are stronger (to touch)
my shoulders are more defined
my posture has improved a ton
i can do 20 full push ups now
i am eating less processed stuff and bloat less
craving processed foods even less
less headaches
i feel fit and firm

here are my measurements (before in brackets):

weight 138 lbs (142 lbs)
bust 35 (36.5)
chest 29 (30)
waist 28 (30)
hips 37 (38)
right leg 22 (23??)
left leg 22 (same)
right arm 11 (11.5)
left arm 11 (11.5)
body fat 23% (28+%)

now i have to figure out what is next? not sure if i want to repeat mtc after a couple of weeks off or find another workout plan. although i missed my spinning classes i really enjoyed circuit training.

I had never heard of this program. I'm going to have to check it out. I'm always looking for something new to shake things up!

sore back

Tuesday, October 02, 2007

so my back or upper right butt has been really tight since saturday. i felt fine doing my work out yesterday but it is feeling super stiff this morning so i decided to take the day off. hoping i can get 3 more mtc work outs in before i do my final weigh in at the end of the week.

i should add that i lost a pound last week and weigh 138.5 now!

so i think i am going to head off to the toddler gym with hayden. he is so darn cute in his halloween pic i had to post a pic!
