Well, it's been a WHILE since I blogged. LOL. You can tell I am a dedicated, devoted, organized person, right? ;)
I fell off the workout/healhty eating wagon the end of fall/ start of winter and was quickly back up to 126-128 by my 30th birthday. The pictures from my birthday party were atrotious and I vowed to make the change for good. I started back at it on feb 1st and I am back down to 117. It's been slow, but I have gained much more muscle along the way this time.
I am converting to clean eating as well. I cut splenda out of my diet last week. *sigh*. I will say that my unsweetened coffee is better everyday. The green tea taste like frog ass, but I am drinking it anyway. ;)I am hoping the clean eating gives my the change I want. I always seem to have MUCH more energy when I stick to a truly nutritious diet. I was eating PRETTY clean at the end of my fall off last year and I felt amazing.
I have found that just in the past 2 weeks of eating clean ( I cut out the sweetner, sugar, and anything processed other than kashi cereal and whole wheat bread ) that I am able to push harder in my workouts. More bang for you buck is always great, right? ;)
I am getting tired of only eating 1200 calories a day though. Why do I have to be so short? I would gladly grow a few inches so I could add another snack to my day. LOL
Anyway..... I have started the 5k101 program. I start week 4 tomorrow. Last week was 3 min runs, 2 min walks. Tomorrow starts 4 min runs, 1 min walks. I think I will do fine. I am moslty taking it slow because I always seem to get knee problems when I just go it on my own.
Tomorrow I am going to start weekly pics, weigh ins and daily workout posts. It seems like the ones who REALLY make progress REALLY keep themselves accountabe.
