Check yourself......

Sunday, October 21, 2012

It has been 6 weeks since i started my first Biggest Loser Challenge and it it time to check myself.


Is my original Plan still working.....or do i have to go to Plan B?

Am i still on track with my original goals?


.... or am i slacking?



Let's see:

Tracking?
I had planned to track every bite....and i am right on target with that emoticon ...well...let's say....i have been darn near perfect these past 6 weeks emoticon Thanks to an 'App' (there is an app for that!!) called 'MyFitness Pal" ...and 'Thanks' to my friend Annie emoticon for introducing me to that awesome 'App' I apologize to Spark...but honestly this App is fantastic.....it has so many more food choices in their Data bank already which eliminates the pain to add it yourself....

Tracking? emoticon



Exercise more.......and find new challenging workouts
I said i would add an additional 15min to my workouts.....am i on target?
Yes i am ....i have added an average of 30min to my daily workouts emoticon emoticon

I joined the 'Y' a couple of weeks ago....Thanks to my son..... emoticon he kept telling me over and over...'Mom those little 30min workouts.....and leisurely walks you are taking through the neighbor hood (leisurely....my foot!!! I was sweating.....and my heart was beating....wasn't it??!! emoticon) ....are not working.....you need to push yourself....you need to sweat...you need to 'Up' your workouts.....blah...Blah..blah
!

I got tired of hearing it.....and finally did something and joined the 'Y". I had planned to join the 'Bootcamp class' but it doesn't work for me timewise......
But i have done 3 Zumba classes.....and got on the Spinning Bike....I ran instead of walking on the treadmill for several minutes....then back to walking....then back to running emoticon I have been on the 'glider elliptical machine.....and i am doing plenty of ST.

Exercise plan emoticon



Eating healthy?

I do eat very healthy.....until it comes to sweets.... emoticon
I was going through a horrible phase for a good 3 weeks.....eating cookies every day......the emoticon monster inside of me took over.....and i finally had to make a decision.....

I am now 5 days 'cookie free' emoticon

But "Eating healthy' does not get a emoticon i have to work on this in a major way...i struggle too much with being tempted to eat 'sweets' on a daily basis.

As for the rest of my goals...."Staying dedicated....preparing my food at home'....staying determined'?
They are all getting a big fat emoticon
Yes i am bragging.....and i know it emoticon but i can honestly say that the Biggest Loser Challenge has been working for me......i may still not lose as much as i would love to...but i have always been a slow loser....but i do know one thing...it may take me longer then the average person to get to the Finish line...but i do know that i will get there!
