Another fun challenge, join me!

Thursday, August 11, 2011

In an effort to get my waistline, BMI, etc in line for getting a discount on my health insurance, I am adding a little fun challenge into my life. Its a crunch challenge/ accountability. I am planning on 1000 per day with one day off Sept 24th before my triathlon. The goal is 1000, but I know to be realistic and that there may be days I don't make that number but I'm darn sure going to try. Think about it in a 10 hour day that's only 100 per hour. Yes I do enjoy the insanity of my physical challenges to myself. My challenge is running from today until Nov. 1. I encourage others to join me making your own goals, for example I have a friend that is starting at 250 and going to work her way up. It's only a few minutes of your day, challenge yourself to do it!

    I find it challenging when the spark site for strength training gives me 5 different crunches of 2 sets of 12-15!

Wow! You've set a HIGH bar! Will up my efforts!

Stay well and good luck on your race!

50 day Challenge, Date Night, and Apostle Islands

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

The one thing I am missing in my 50 day challenge, I am still struggling to get strength training in, so I plan on starting up another round of p90x, I will officially start it on the 19th of August because I will be leaving on vacation Saturday the 13th until the 19th. However I do plan to do some of the workouts before I leave.
My date night with the boyfriend was great and proved that you can have a healthy date night as well. We went out for Indian food which is a fairly healthy selection and we followed that up with a nice evening hike. We had wanted to go to a museum but it ended up being closed, so the hike was a great substitute, plus we got to get really close to a deer (12ft away) We just enjoyed staring at each other (the deer and us, and I suppose Mike and I emoticon).
And finally it is almost time for another vacation, we are going to Apostle Island National Lakeshore in Wisconsin. We will be kayaking from island to island and then camping and hiking, it is going to be a great vacation and a fit one too! Hoping it will be like last vacation where I came back fitter and lighter than when I left!

Sunday, August 07, 2011

Not gonna lie it was not so good, I could not stop eating today... emoticon. Chalk this day up to wish it didn't happen.
There were some good things, water, workout meds, but I really was an eating machine today...(well yesterday, I'm a little late getting the blog up but since its after Midnight I am starting with a clean slate and ready to correct the mistakes of yesterday, ie step away from the fork!! emoticon

Days 2-4 of 50 day challenge.

Friday, August 05, 2011

Day 2: The good: water, fitness, medications,
The so-so: nutrtion and sleep. Too many carbs, and not enough sleep. I do see a pattern here for sure, when I don't get much sleep my carbs are not in control.

Day3: The good: sleep, water, medications, nutrition
The bad: Workout was rather weak, but it was just one of those unavoidable circumstance days. emoticon

Day 4: The good: Sleep, water, medications, nutrition
The excellent: Workout 18 mile bike ride and a decent pace and since its a work night, time to get stepping 12000 will be no problem with a fit day like this! emoticon


Day 1 of 50

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Sleepwise today was not good and it has affected the fitness for the day. I did manage a short run but it was not the 60 minutes that I am hoping for. Sleep was terrible due to circumstances beyond my control, they were tearing down abandoned flood properties in my neighborhood. Nutrition has been mostly balanced a little heavier on the carbs than I would like something to keep an eye on. I'm well on my way to getting in my 12000 steps at work, which as soon as I finish this blog I will be getting back on those. Medications were taken on time and properly (ie on an empty stomach, for some and full on the others). Water I have 64oz in for the day and since I haven't done heavy activity or sweating, I will just continue to sip throughout the night. I have hit the blog for the day so today was a moderate success only to get better emoticon.

Starting stats yuck hate posting these but they are way better than when I first started my weight loss journey, it just highlighted my need to do STand tighten up nutrition, because I could be a lot better toned.
Weight 249.4
Waist 38
Thigh 31
Hip 46
Bicep 15.5
Calf 18
Chest 45.5
I didn't take photos today but will get on those soon a comparison will be nice its much more telling than any measurement in my opinion.
