NEWS FLASH: This just in fitness and weight loss take time and effort

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

I posted a comment on a thread about my success with p90x, some of the comments were well if I worked out 90minutes a day 6 days a week I would see results too. And well it says I can achieve my goals in 90 days why multiple rounds. I had that moment of DUH! Do people really think that fitness magically happens, that weight loss of extreme amounts happens in 90 days. I have 132 pounds overall that I am trying to lose 45+ is gone from round one (and a lot of hardwork and effort in the diet and exercise department). But if I had gone in thinking I was going to lose 132 lbs in just 90 days and get a perfect 6 pack I would have been really disappointed. Following the 1-2 lbs per week thing it would take 66 weeks to lose all of it. 45lbs should take 22.5 weeks I lost that much in 13weeks. People just need to wake up and realize there is no magic cure for losing weight and getting 6pack abs it is going to take time and effort. Another thing I bet the people making these comments can find 90 minutes a day to watch TV or dink around on the internet why not 90 minutes a day for your health?

    I had someone ask how long it took me to lose 50 lbs and when I said about a year she said "Oh,. That would be too long for me. I need to lose weight faster then that to be happy" What???? How crazy is that???? We all would want to lose it faster, but as you said weight loss and fitness take time to achieve. There is no quick fix to the problem. WTG you are doing great!

    Hear, Hear! You go girl! As much as we wish it would happen overnight, the reality of it is so much different. We all just need to keep plugging away and things will eventually work out the way we want them to.
I really wish they would just take off all those weight loss commercials. They are bombarding the TV with a bunch of nonsense. The sad part is that so many people fall for these "quick fixes" .
emoticon on your weight loss so far and I know you will make the rest happen also.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. I need to realize that too. As one of my friends say losing weight is a marathon not a sprint. You are wonderful and congrats on losing 45+ pounds.

    Taking care of your self is hard work but few things in life are more worth it. Being realistic about what you are doing is a giant step in the right direction and you have a fantastic attitude and losing 45 lbs is HUGE you should be proud and you will get to the end of your journey. Enjoy everything you have worked so hard for you have earned it. emoticon

Time to increase my intensity.

Monday, February 01, 2010

I am working out a lot but now I need to add some more intensity to my workouts. Had a couple good workouts today. Felt bad that I have to go back to work my little doggies made sure that I felt bad about it by sitting on the couch and pouting while I got ready for work. Can't wait until the weather improves and we can be outside more together. Had a fabulous moment today where I ran into the ex and enjoyed watching his jaw drop, he hasn't seen me in awhile, I was like ha ha take that buddy! It was nice to feel strong and confident in front of him, it was a nice little "you so didn't deserve me" moment!

Vacation success and pizza cravings.

Friday, January 29, 2010

Thursday was fabulous did basically nothing except workout. Normally my first day off work would be like that so today Friday which is my normal day off work I got a lot of stuff done, got the trimwork for my house and the air diffusers(yay no more gaping holes in the floor), dropped off my receipts at Jumpstart hopefully that will about pay off my SBA loan! Got a paper shredder and finally sorted through all the paper junk around the house (I'm a receipt pack rat which is good for the whole FEMA SBA Jumpstart thing but not for keeping an orderly house) I am going to tackle the upstairs tomorrow I have a lot of clothes to sort through again (yay getting smaller!) Got a ton of general house cleaning done that gets neglected when I am feeling lazy (which in winter is all the time). Finally got a jog in and getting ready to crash out on the couch for a little bit while watching a movie.

One bad thing I am craving pizza like none other I am going to make one over the weekend (the whole soy cheese thing because of the dairy allergy) but it is causing extreme food cravings because I have not satisfied the pizza monster. I have been keeping it healthy but find myself aimlessly wandering to the kitchen all to frequently. Think I won't be able to wait til Sunday for the pizza or I will end up gaining 10lbs in 4 days.

    I gave in and made an awesome veggie and soy cheese pizza on whole wheat crust yes all from scratch! But far healthier than any pizza you could order.

    Ugh. There must be something in the air. My friend and I both (seperately) were craving pizza today. Will probably end up making my own with a high fiber wrap and bake it.

  Y'know you can eliminate the cheese all together. If you have really tasty sauce and toppings it can be really good and you can have twice as many pieces as you could cheese pizza.

Today is Vacation Day

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Still have to work but I am so using this day like I planned to. Working nights I usually waste my first day off so I took today going into my long weekend off, so that I could waste today and get stuff done on Friday instead when normally I would waste Friday. I did get a few things done but I am just enjoying relaxing, playing on the computer, eventually getting to my working out. Its the best vacation day a day just for me!

Half marathon training and P90X

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

The combo of the 2 is great, I have a lot of stamina from doing the p90x workouts and a solid strength base I have found that I am able to jog quite a bit already without running a bunch prior. Today I tested my cardio base I biked for an hour and jogged for 55 minutes as soon as I got off the bike (today would have been Xstretch day) I couldn't believe how comfortable I was doing it. I am well on my way to the half marathon and I know that continuing the p90x will only further my progress. I am going to have to find the right balance of nutrition once again though because I will be training that much harder. I am excited I start mini vacation tomorrow which means I'm doing a lot of stuff that needs to get done around the house before it is spring and too nice for me to care about doing it.
