2010 Recap, 2011 goals.

Saturday, December 11, 2010

Other than I am not going to make my weight goal, 2010 was very successful for me, while I still have my ups and downs, I have maintained a healthy lifestyle for the year, managed to lose a decent amount of weight, have gained a little back but am starting to shed it again. I set out to do a half marathon and then got a little crazy and decided to do a full marathon, I accomplished both goals, not bad for someone who just picked up with running again this year. I learned a lot training for the marathon, mostly about perserverance, committment, and what it really means to do something for you and you only. I mean it would have been really cool to say I ran some really great time at the marathon, but I didn't I finished and now for my next one I can set a time goal. The points in the marathon where I really wanted to give up were a true test of character, because I told myself while others may forgive me for stopping, I knew I would not forgive myself for it and that is how I am looking at my weight loss, I cannot give up if I feel I am having a set back, I need to push through even if it is not pretty.

My goals for 2011 are to finish losing weight, ideally 60-80lbs would put me where I feel my best, although I will still be considered clinically overweight. I am going to begin training for a triathlon, utilizing a coach, who may potentially end up being a love interest if I can get him to permanently move to Iowa from Utah. I will be doing some hiking and mountain climbing in Utah though:) I wanna continue to work on healthy eating habits, this is my one area of true downfall. I will also continue to do all of my Beachbody workouts (Insanity, P90x, and Turbofire). I already have a couple halfmarathons on deck, and am thinking I will be doing Des Moines marathon next October with a time goal of 5:30. I also look to continue to make spark friendships and support others in their goals.

P90x Day 1

Monday, December 06, 2010

I'm a little late getting to my blog so day 1 was actually on Sunday the 5th, I am doing p90x again this time with a little twist I am mixing in turbo fire and insanity on the cardio days except for the yoga days need to get back to doing the yoga. Today I have plyos on the schedule. I may do insanity plyos or I may do the p90x plyos depends on how I feel on Kenpo days it is kenpo or a turbo fire disc. Mostly I just need to get back to enjoying the workouts and focusing on weight loss. I realized some of my problem was that I had been so focused on the running I forgot about the losing weight and now I have that mental let down when I'm not running 10miles instead of realizing an hour of these workouts is great too and will help my running in the spring. I am doing my workouts for p90x a little out of order, I am starting with Legs to kick off each week, seems to set a good tone for the workout week.

    Great plan! It's all about whatever makes you happiest and switching up whatever is not working for you. Good luck on your P90x mix!

Almost there...

Friday, December 03, 2010

Today I had a break through, today was the first time in a long time that I was working out that I really enjoyed it an really wished I had the time to workout longer. I haven't felt like that in a long time it really gives me hope that I am finally going to push through this rut/slump/lack of motivation/ whatever. I am going to attempt a giant step today instead of a baby step...

    Congratuations! I love that, I've gone in streaks where I love working out and when it's gone it can be tough to recover. I find that trying to switch it up helps me, finding a new DVD or just bike riding, etc. It kind of gets you back into a groove again. Hopefully your streak keeps going strong!!

    Awesome job. What a great feeling. Keep up the great work and someone told me once that your workouts you should look forward to. Everyone needs a workout soul mate. Maybe you found yours.

Hopefully getting back in the swing of things.

Monday, November 29, 2010

I have had a fairly consistent week, and I am looking to continue it. The baby step approach seems to be working, it is helping me keep it low stress. Nutritionally I am doing better but I need a lot of improvement and it is mostly in the mental aspect of eating. I find that I am thinking too much about what I am going to eat next (and not in the good way) and not basing my eating off hunger or smart choices. Exercise has been a something is better than nothing, in an effort to make it seem more enjoyable, I know that I like to exercise but there has been that nagging voice in my head that wants me to be lazy and I have been fighting to win that battle, so something is better than nothing for now.

    Something is ALWAYS better than nothing in the exercise realm. I'm sort of in that place at the moment, too. We'll keep plugging away and find the joy again.

    We all have had those times, in fact, I just went through one of those and am slowly getting myself back on track... little by little - its the only way to go. Focus on you and being healthy and one choice at a time! you can do this!

    Continue on the path you are on & you will make progress. As already stated, it's one day at a time, one meal at a time, one exercise at a time. I find myself getting overwhelmed by the big picture, but if I focus on the little things, I find that I stay on track much better. You'll get there if you just keep plugging away. :)

  I go through the same things. Just one day at a time. When I feel like I will exercise tomorrow I am just to tired, I make myself remember the article I have read here on SP, even 10 minutes of exercise makes a difference. That to me is done by taking out the garbage, running the sweeper, loading up laundry, and the next thing I know some of my housework is done and I have almost 15 or 20 minutes in. You are doing a great job by doing it baby steps. Keep it up things will become easier.
