Just another update

Thursday, May 03, 2012

I haven't written much lately but I have been around reading blogs and articles, sort of in the background, but I am here!

This past month has been really good and with the start of the new month I am looking forward to another great 25 days. That is the number of days until my next weight in day and measurements. The last one was a bit hard to grasp but my buddy made me see that i was being way to hard on me, and I was. You see we try to workout together 3-4 days a week and when we don't workout together I still manage to fit in a walk. I can't remember the exact number of days I worked out last month but it was about 20 days. The workouts are usually 30-45 minutes and a few days when we did over an hour, so they were fast, sweet drenching, muscle burning, can't move for three days kind of workouts. We are trying everything from training for a 5k, to zumba, bbl, jackie warner, and watp fast pace. Yet, I was a bit disappointed when on our weight in day I had only lost two pounds. Yeah they are 2 lbs i no longer carry with me, but with all the hard work I guess I was expecting more. On measurement-wise I lost over all 6 inches.

With this information and not so much happy about the results I made a plan (the question is am I sticking with it!) I know I am working really hard with my workouts so it has to be my eating that's off. I am 15 lbs to being under 200, 15 lbs !!! I really want this and I know that if i take care of what i eat I can accomplish shedding those lbs. I refuse to drink diet pills and restrict myself on a diet that I know I won't last on, besides I like eating and I know I can eat right if I set my mind to it. So, my plan is to watch everything that i am eating, I mean everything! I usually do good with my breakfast and lunch and my day time snacks, it is when I get home that the real issue starts. For some reason I tend to not only eat dinner very late at night, but also snack like crazy! I know I am going over my calorie range and that really bumbs me out. :(

Enough about that! Don't want to ruin my day thinking constantly about it. Lets see this past month I was a bit more active. I am walking my neighbors dog on the weekends, we usually do a mile or a mile and a half. My neighbor sort of complained that the dog was to tired once when we did 2 miles. I felt sorry for the poor dog, I guess I was pushing him considering he is 3 yrs old and a bit chubby. I went to the Ifest last weekend, I had a blast, they were featuring Argentina. It is in downtown Houston and it's I think about 3-4 mile along a trail. They had concerts with very energetic music, they had food stands with typical food, art stands, shopping stands, etc . I ended up buying a few photos and a hammock. This weekend I want to try to go to a farmer's market. I say try because I really never know what I am doing until the day off.

Okay so nut much going on, I really hope this month I see more results, I know slowly but I know I am going to loose those 15 lbs!

    The main thing here, is, you are going out there and walking and moving around more and doing things for yourself. That is terrific!

    I'm sorry you were disappointed, but eventually, if you keep this up, your body will start kicking into a mode of losing. Keep it up and make sure you change things up and don't slack off.

    I'm glad that you're out and doing more and being with your friends.

    Have a good weekend.
