Awe man, now I REALLY need to drop some lbs

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Ok, now I HAVE to get this weight off and tones up by august. I was “window” shopping on EBay and saw this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress and bid on it. It said it was $480, dress so I bid on it not thinking that I would win since I was not bidding that much. Well, I won it. It is super sexy and where I am at now, not even sure if it would even fit and I am sure it would not look the best if it did and would look even better with 30 lbs lost. Looks like I need to up the strength and really work hard on the eating more. Also need to get a pair of spanx and a bra that would work for it cause the girls need support.

I have 86 days and 2 vacations in there too.

This morning had a great arm workout and that's all I am planning on doing today but man, I feel like it is not enough. I feel like I NEED to do more cardio to burn more calories but this is what I have been doing for years and it has just not worked for me so I am going to resist and just do some light lawn work tonight. Tomorrow I will be doing a bike ride with DD and DH.

Also did a great 15 mile bike ride last night with the new seat. I think I could use one a little wider but I like the cut out that is in this one. I was not totally hurting this time but the sit bones were a little sore, but that's to be expected. I thought my HR would be a bit lower but it still was higher then I wanted but I did not want to go slower. Oh I wish I could get this figured out.

Have a great day everyone

    Glad to hear your saddle's better. Give it some time. I rode 53 miles last Saturday. Sunday, when I sat on my seat...ouch! It went numb and I was fine. lol

    Gorgeous dress! I had the perfect formula for my body before and I am really working at getting back there. Keep my calorie burn between 350-500 and intake to maintain no more than a 350 deficit. I won't be able to do that every day due to long runs and races, but I will do my best to be "moderate"!! You're going to find what works for you. Keep mixing it up two weeks at a time to find the right combination.

    Look at the back on that dress! Or....lack of back. emoticon That is a great color. You are going to look great in it!

I love a great arm workout when I work so hard I feel like I can't pick up a pen at work. What a great feeling!

    Long time ago, you said you need to decrease cardio, can I ask why? In my own personal experience and my education from my studies, I learned one has to up the cardio to create a deficient of calories to lose weight. Just curious...

    That dress is amazing! I'm sure you will rock it! Just keep picturing it in your head on vacation, cuz I know those out-of-the-norm times can be so hard to stay the course.
