One step closer to Ironwoman

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Today I am going to end up only 60 calories over 1500. I am working on doing 2-3 days of being right around 1500 and then 1 day of being closer to 1800. When I was really focusing hardcore on weight loss this worked really well for me and helped me not feel deprived. The nice thing about today's calorie count is it even allowed for an indulgence. I am making a super conscious effort going into winter so that I don't lose the hardwork I have been doing all summer, I don't want to be totally psycho about it either, just conscious. I have a very supportive boyfriend who is on board with my training and health efforts and of course all my terrific sparkfriends who are always supportive!

    Awesome job and if it worked before it will work again! I'm glad you are so balanced about it and not stressing out over it. you worked so hard for where you are at and I agree by allowing this alottment you will in no way mess it up. Think about how much food you can eat that is healthy when you are consuming 1500-1800 calories of it! Great job today girl

For those of you who feel your running lacks grace

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Some days go more like the top picture, for me most are like the bottom, but what matters is that I go out and do it no matter how pretty I look

Test Run

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Tomorrow I am going to do a test run to see if I have kept myself in good enough shape to do a half marathon in at least a reasonably decent time. While I feel I am in shape enough to complete one, I would feel a bit discourage if I couldn't come with in a minute or 2 of my PR. I gotta see where I am at with my running, either way I need to get focused on good quality runs again.


Today starts the new me!

Today I start tracking toward my weight goal no more excuses why I am not at my weight goal moving forward. I will be tracking, probably won't make it online until Sunday though since I will be enjoying the wilderness so unless the campground has wi-fi you will hear from me on Sunday. Don't worry I will be active and I will be keeping in line with my new plan!

This is my plan to get to a more desirable Half Iron triathlon weight.
-Log all food in one form or another, I have access to spark on my phone, ipod, computer, and if all else fails pen and paper work.

-30-60 minutes of exercise per day. This should be easy I do this for the most part currently, but winter likes to make me lazy

-Clean eating- I mostly eat healthy but I need to kick some vices like sugar and salty snacks like chips (love chips and salsa)

-Limit alcohol to 1 drink, I do enjoy a drink with dinner and I'm okay with that.

-Fitness: Run 3x/wk, bike 3x/wk, ST 2x/wk(or more), Misc cardio 2x/wk (with ST), Swim 1x/wk (to maintain for tri, 2 if able too). I will be starting more triathlon specific workouts in January but this will keep a good base. 1000 Abs 4x/wk was doing every day but that gets a bit taxing.

Looking at hitting 180 by May 1st if I really buckle down it should be no problem.

    Agree, winter can be so tough on the fitness schedule. You will rock it, though and hit that goal!!
