So, Im up 5 pounds...YUCK!
Well, I was up 5 pounds yesterday. Now Im only up 3.5. So, Im ok with that. water weight doesnt scare me...much.
I fell into the Christmas-eat-all-that-you-want mentality about 2 weeks ago. And just got out of it yesterday. I weighed myself here and there throughout the 2 weeks but, honestly, didnt care what the scale said. AND I worked out ONCE in 2 weeks!!!!! How scary is that??!!??
So, I pretty much ate what I wanted, relaxed on my days off work, and was a big lazy Christmas spirit-filled lump!! haha But, I enjoyed it :) at least til I got on the scale yesterday morning...
SO, Im back at it!!! 3.5 pounds to get off to be back at the weight my ticker actually says Im at haha 15.5 pounds to go til goal. I didnt make it to 150 by Christmas. I could have if I hadnt started eating everything a week and a half BEFORE Christmas but who wants to dwell on the past? right?
My ultimate goal has always been to hit 140 by my 25th birthday on March 2, 2010 and I have a teeny bit over 2 months to make it!! NO PROBLEM!!!!! Im actually hoping to surpass it :) So, back to my plan of eating 1300 calories a day 6 days a week, 1600 calories on my "cheat day", and burning 1600 calories a week thru exercise :) It was working for me before, so why change it?
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!!

So, Ive been telling myself I need something "new" for my cardio and kept telling myself as much as I LOATHE running I need to just do it! It will be good for me and I want a runner's body! Well, yesterday I got on the treadmill next to my bestie (ASHLEYEH22) and I ran with her. Not as long as she did, but I did it. I walk/jogged for 21 minutes, actually jogging for 5 to 7 minutes straight :)
Today, I ran on that treadmill like Ive been doing it for weeks! haha Partly because I actually enjoyed it a lil (shhh! dont tell anyone!) and partly because I didnt wanna look like a wimp in front of the one other person in the tiny little gym with me haha I ran at 4.8 for the first of it and felt I needed to kick it up a notch! so BAM!! (a little Emeril quoting) I was running full force! And by the time I looked at the time I had ran for 12 minutes! :) and at a pretty high speed for me...not sure how fast, I never really looked.
Even tho I havent been running as my source of cardio through these past (almost) 6 months of my new lifestyle, I could feel how much easier it was than the last time I ran, which was a few months ago. Just losing a little more weight and getting more endurance through the Turbo Jam dvds has helped alot :) So, I feel pretty darn good and I think Ill try to keep it up :)
On another note, I have not lost any weight since Nov 1st :( Just keep gaining and losing the same 2 or 3 pounds. But I have lost inches which hadnt happened in quite a while it seemed like :) so, even tho the scale hasnt moved I do feel like I look a little thinner because Im finally starting to lose in my belly pooch, hips, and thighs!!! woo hoo!! Im not too optimistic about reaching my short-term goal of hitting 150 by Christmas since theres only 3 weeks left and 6 pounds to lose (I was back at 156 this morning hehe). But, theres always a possibility!! Im not gonna lose all hope! Just gotta get my rump into gear!!

Ive been trying to keep myself occupied, considering Ive only done 4 xrays in 9 hours...so, since Ive been on SP this ENTIRE time I figured Id do some calculations and figure out my new calorie deficits and my goals.
My BMR at this moment in time is 1832 according to SP
SP says my minumum calories per day should be 1260, so Ive decided to set myself at 1300 a day.
But, I had to calculate in my "cheat meal" that I have on Sundays. (new goal is to not let myself have "cheat days" just a "cheat meal" and Im determined not to go over 1600 calories on Sundays)
AND I want to shoot for burning around 1600 calories per week with cardio and ST.
So, my calculations go as follows:
BMR = 1832
Calories in=1300 (6 days per week)
Calories in=1600 (1 day per week)
Calories out=1600 (per week)
Grand total= 5024 calorie deficit
Multiply that by 4 weeks (1 month) and I should lose about 5.5 pounds per month
Of course I know this is only gonna happen if I stick to this exact plan and hope that the planets align with me and TOM doesnt screw anything up and I dont give into a craving for anything after Ive eaten my calories for the day, AND I dont eat everything in sight at the holidays, and so on and so on....
But Im gonna write this all out and hang it somewhere I will see it everyday so that I will have a reminder of what "should" be done. And if all goes as plan, Ill reach goal by my 25th birthday on March 2, 2010 :) And if I don't...eh whatever...I have a lifetime to do this! But at least this way I have some goals set to keep myself on track :)
New goals for the rest of my journey :
~DRINK MY WATER!! this is my biggest problem of all...hate water
~Only drink one diet soda a day...hopefully itll help me drink my water
~Eat slower...big problem for me
Feeling better now that it's typed out

So, here I am at work and BORED!!!! Time for a new blog :)
I have 16 pounds left til goal!!! woo hoo!! well, that was BEFORE this last weekend and BEFORE I had gained a little with the Sunday eat fest haha. But I hope to be back at 156.4 by Sunday morning. I WILL not have a "cheat" Sunday this week!! If I dont stop those cheat days I will never get to goal. But then there's the holidays coming up. Ugh...
Ive slacked on working out this week. I skipped workout Tues and Thur nights
:( But, I WILL workout tonight after my 12 hour shift of BOREDOM and Ill do a last chance workout tomorrow. Gotta get back to 156.4!!
So, as you may have seen I chopped my hair :) The pics I have posted actually are not the latest pics. Ive never cut my hair this short before. When I went and got it cut on Wed I asked for an angled bob. Well, the girl that cuts my hair didnt exactly do what I asked. And she kinda made me a little crooked haha So, a friend from work fixed it for me last night. Cut it a little shorter and angled it a little more. Ill probably go shorter in the back next time because it's not quite angled enough for me. Ill post newer pics later.
Im loving my new hair tho. I figured the new me needed a new look :) And it shows off my clavicles :) hehe
Thinking about maybe giving running another try here and there. I feel like a need to shake it up a bit to get some more weight off. I updated my goals again on SP and it's brought me back down to 1260 cals minimum :( I kinda liked having the 1320 cals haha oh well, gotta do whatcha gotta do! But Im such a stickler for only eating the bare minimum. I get my mind set on the number and freak out if Im over by like 20 cals...I know I have a range for a reason but my mind doesnt work that way. Ill even eat up to 100 cals less so that I dont go over with one food...but then I have my cheat days so I guess Im balancing out...Balancing, not losing. There's the problem.
Anyway, Im loving my size 11 jeans :) I went to Old Navy over the weekend and fit into their 10s. Of course, we all know they run a little bigger but it's still nice to think Im so close to single digit sizes!!! Junior sizes!! :) Thats my goal when it comes to clothes. I hope to fit into at least a size 9 jean. Its funny, cuz I know I want to lose 16 more pounds, but Im not sure how my body is gonna conform with the loss. I carry my weight in my belly pooch and my hips and thighs, so I dont know what size I will be at 140. Itll be exciting to find out.
Is that enough rambling?? I wasted about an hour coming up with stuff to write about haha 9 hours to go! Have a great weekend SP friends!!
