Not so dissapointed anymore

Thursday, September 09, 2010

So, this last month I have gained almost 2.5lbs emoticon

I know I have been eating more than I used to, but still under the "normal", I used to consume 1300-1500 calories a day, and I've increased them to 1600-1700. Plus, I've continued working out, I tried Jillian Michael's 30day shred, and started the couch to 5k program. My stress level has significantly decreased and I still drink at least 10 cups of water a day.

I just cannot explain what's happening, and I get scared that I will start gaining everything back. This past weekend we went to Mexico, and I was so dissapointed that I ate without tracking, I'm pretty sure I had more calories than what I needed.

Well, today was a big day in the C25k program, for the first time, I was supposed to run (jog) for 20 consecutive minutes. I had been so scared of this day, afraid that I wouldn't be able to do it and I would end up giving up. I don't think I had ever in my life jogged for that long, but I DID it, and I am extremely happy, excited, motivated, and ready to continue fighting.

This morning, I ordered a new DVD, "get ripped 1,000" I hope this will help me lose or at least mantain my weight, and I will continue training so that on September 26 I will be able to run my first 5k.

    Congrats on your run. I have not ran yet for 20 minutes. Still a little scared myself. I bike like a maniac but try to keep the weight off my feet. I spent to much time in a cast in February to redo more damage. I myself have been exercising like crazy for the past two weeks and have not really seen much loss. I have been flucuating my calories range, changing my workouts, etc. I guess it is just going to take time.
