Bring on the Sweat!

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I know i'm losing weight when I see the sweat dripping off of me! I've mentioned it before, I have this fetish that after i get a great sweat going I will often take a picture of myself. I just love seeingme sweat - i don't know wht, but i do.

NOW - i only like sweating when i'm actually working out. NOT just because it's hot outside or i just walked a flight of stairs. Then i hate sweating.

Here are pics of me after my 6 mile walk yesterday:

Anyways...I just wanted to document the pics.

A Mix of Thoughts...

Monday, March 26, 2012

Including today I have 6 more days to complete my march goals. I still have 2.5 miles to walk, 427 minutes to complete, 725 squats to do, 600 arm curls remaining, 375 chest presses to complete and 525 punches to knock out. I KNOW i will complete me goals. And by most people's standards I've completed a tremendous amount of work through out March. I'm quite proud of myself. Not only for completing my goals but because i didn't give up. I had a few bad eating days, but for the most of it i was pretty darn good.

I was with some friends this past weekend and i over heard some conversations that I was not necessarily a part of. Some of the guys were talking about athletic girls and that's what they are attracted to. well...

I looked it up and being athletic means being physically active and strong. SO by definition I AM athletic.

BUT what these guys really should be saying is that they want someone that is visually athletic. If you put me against most of the girls in my circle i can probably walk further, last longer, lift more, participate in more sports and activities, etc. then they could. BUT I am the biggest women in the group as well. But they don't look at me as athletic. The reality of it is that it is their problem. I've earned my scars throughout these years and i've worked damn hard these last few months. I can move this 283lb body a lot better than some women at 135lbs. Why? Because i'm an athlete!

    You are STRONG, girl! Hang in there! ONe day those girls will look at you with envy and ask how you did it.. and one day those guys will be LUSTING after you. Til then it's our secret how much you rock and how strong you are.. but you are killing it and are really awesome! I'm amazed and inspired by how much exercise you are doing! I am doing what I can and I'm getting stronger day by day, too. :)

    I love how you didn't let the comments that the guys were making get you down! All of my female friends are smaller than I am, and with the exception of one of them, while I'm still working on my endurance and such, I work a lot harder and can probably go longer than my other friends because while they're smaller, they don't do anything athletic or exercise related. At least you know that once you do reach your overall goal you'll not only be athletic in the literal sense, but you'll be able to kick some butt with your "visual atheticism" :) You're doing an awesome job!!! Keep it up!

BMI Update

Friday, March 23, 2012

Only so that I can keep a better track record...

Startig BMI: 56.5
March 23, 2012 BMI: 50.4

I'm still Obese...

Once I reach 167lbs i'll be considered JUST over-weight (that's a long way to go before i'mjust over-weight)

Who Is This Person?!...a Binging Story

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I don't know WHY i did it! It's not like I didn't THINK about it BEFORE I did it. But something just snapped and I went for it. WHY????!!! Then i really BINGED...not once ...not twice...but THREE times!

The voices inside of my head are arguing. The one voice is saying, "I knew she'd do it!" While the other voice says, "She won't do it. I know her. She just won't." But the thing is...I DID do it...and now...what do i do NOW?!

I love this question...a year from now what would i have wished I had done today? Would I have just done what i just did? Or would i have walked away?

A part of me...I guess and one of the voices that live in my head...thinks it's ok with my binging today. Binging is doing something in eating. So i binged today, so what? The other voice inside of my head is just shaking, yes i can picture the shaking headed voice, and repeatedly asking, I can't believe she just DID that...

Do you want to know what I binged on...

Since binging is the act of doing something in excess then i binged on signing up for some 5k's!!!!!!!!!

So that voice inside of my head...the one that was agreeing with me and egging me on to do it...that's the voice that appeared back in January - the encouraging - you can do anything - voice! take that you self-doubting, can't believe that i signed up for multiple 5K's voice!

I've only ever completed 1 5K. AND the person tricked me and then left me there to do it on my own. It was horrible! I was well over 300lbs and I came in dead last and after the awards ceremony ended. I cried it was so embarrassing. But i know I can do it this time. I just KNOW it!

So my goal, as the first of the 5K's is April 14th, is to complete that thing in under 60 minutes.

I can walk fast on the treadmill, but let's see what the pavement tells me. I'll start walking outside to see where i currently stand and go from there...

How many did I sign up for in 2012? 5 so far...4 Race for the Cures and one Jingle Bell Dash in December. They haven't opened a Halloween or Thanksgiving one yet. BUT i plan on signing up for those two once they are up and running!

I'm sure you will do great. You are already an athlete with your killer workouts.
