Day 3 Power 90 (no Marathon training today)

Thursday, January 13, 2011

SO I did in fact make up for my missed strength training from yesterday. I was not feeling the strength training. I think it was because I was using the band thing instead of free weights. and It takes a second to get it situated. and I'm not really a fan of push ups but I know with this I will get batter at them.

I was then planning on doing my Power 90 cardio in the evening but decided to just knock it out while I was there. that way would not get behind on my days. So the cardio one went fine. I didn't do everything. My knee wasn't feeling the jumping jacks because in the strength training I had to do some lunges.

But tomorrow I get another swing at the strength training. and I will get in my marathon training as well. I didn't skip it yesterday. I just decided that if I have 20miles to do this week and I do 4miles for 5 yeas I might was well split up the two days off from running.

Day 2 Power 90 & Marathon

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

The run, objective: 4miles. So this time I went for walk a 1/4mil, jog a 1/4mil. back and forth. Day 2 was a lot harder. I wanted to quite, and push it off until tomorrow or another day because I have a week to complete 20miles. But I didn't I did the whole four miles.

Power 90: not so much.
I put it off and ran out of time. my roomie came home and I don't want to do it in front of her. I will try to get in day two in the morning and day three in the evening

    Thank you so much. It's discouraging when you don't accomplish what you set out to do. But there is tomorrow. I will just have to be more dedicated

Day 1 Power 90 & Marathon

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

This was the first day for me to start training on the marathon. I did actually get up first thing this am and go to the GYM. I did 4miles. 2 walking @ 3.5 and 2jogging @ 4.5. It isn't as fast I've been before but I will get there again.

Power 90. It got me sweating but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be but I am excited about tomorrow because it is strength training.

    Power 90 was my first BB workout ever. I didn't think the moves were that difficult, but it got me sweating too. Good luck and have fun with it :)

Okay so it's terrible to do so but I am going to say it and mean it "This year will be different." This year I will stick to my plan and I will do what needs to be done for both my health and my life in general.

I will track the food I eat because that's when you really know what you are eating and the effect it will have on your body. Ignorance is bliss. Usually, if I eat something I shouldn't eat I don't track my food for that day. I WILL NOT PRETEND TO BE IGNORANT ANY MORE. I will at least have the common decency to acknowledge what I am doing to my body. And if you can't be honest with yourself what do you have?

So I didn't do the best today I did track my food but I didn't get a work out in. But Rome wasn;'t built in a day. I will do better tomorrow

My life does not rotate around my weight. It has a great impact on my life, but it is not who I am. I procastinate with everything. I act as though I am always busy, and sometimes I am. The time I do have time though. I waste it. sitting in front of the TV, or the computer. I am not as knowledgeable at work as I need to be. SO I NEED TO READ AND STUDY MORE. Just because I don't get everything or memorize everything I read first time through is not an excuse. I am honestly not trying my hardest so I have no room to complain.

I know what needs to be done. I think everyone does for their own situation its just about putting into play.

    I couldn't agree with you more. We all know what we have to do, but most of the times we manage to get ourselves out of doing it.

I also waste all of my time on the computer when I could be doing a lot of other things.

Let's make 2011 the year we're completely honest with ourselves and do the best that we can!!!

Good luck :)

So I have been away for far too long. The truth? I'm an emotional eater, and an excuse maker.
I was doing great, then I put myself in the position of mother of three to my sisters three children. Going from single with all the time in the world to mother of three was really hard. Really Hard. I stopped doing what needed to be done. It was hard so I ate. It was easy to make excuses so I did.

I'm single and in the military, so decisions were made and the kids went to the grandparents who had the best environment and support system for the kids. It was hard to get them and harder yet still to be without them. I know its best but it breaks my heart, so how do you think I deal with that?

So now I am in Hawaii, a paradise. I don't know anyone here. I miss my family and friends and I am so far away. through all of this I have gained about 30lbs. Not good, Especially since I am in the military.

I am not fat because of food. I am fat because I can't seem to deal with problems, with my own emotions. How do you fix that? I can work out and eat right and lose weight. But food is not the problem. I am. I need to find a better way to deal with my issues.
