good vibes


Thursday, June 13, 2013

Almost ten days since my last blog post.... Here's an update!
I have gone to the gym 6 times since June 4. We (my workout buddy and I) have been kicking major ass. Yesterday we walked to the gym (about a 20 min walk each way) did about an hour of strength training ( emoticon feel the burn) and then did an hour of kick boxing emoticon and walked back. You know when you are so sore and tired from your workout that you don't even try to find the comfy spot in bed, you just pass out in some weird position? Yeah, that's when you know you've had a good workout!
Food... I have actually been pretty good with food lately. Not 100% of course, but I've been eating a nice, healthy balanced diet with the occassional fast food meals. I've been tracking most of the time and drinking lots of water. I'm not up to 8 glasses a day EVERY day but most days I think i make it. Mostly I forget to pay attention so I lose track of how many I've had. On gym days I'm sure I make it because I usually drink about 3 or 4 bottles of water just there.
Today I am in a ridiculously good mood. Why? No idea. Other than I feel good about myself. Really good about myself, for the first time in months. I am starting to get on top of things again.
And the big new... wait for it.... I am dating. Yes, I know. Its kind of a shock to me too. And I don't know if I like it. Ha ha. I never realized how much work dating is. Mostly because I never really tried to date before. But that is a separate topic for another blog.
Anyway, the whole of it is that things are going well. I feel good, I feel motivated. I'm working on making heatlhy lifestyle changes that I can maintain long-term. I'm not beating myself up or feeling guilty when I am not perfect. I am just trying to enjoy the whole process.
Oh and one last thing. I'm not weighing myself. I know, it is a good measure of progress. But it isn't the only measure or even the most accurate measure. For me, it just ends up being discouraging because I never lose as much as I think I should have. So my plan is not to weigh in until my clothes are so ridiculously big that I can't hold my pants up even with a belt anymore. And maybe not even then. I don't need a scale to tell me I've lost weight. I can feel it.

    WTG! Enjoy celebrating what you've accomplished and will continue to strive towards.

As for the water, see if you can find a reuseable water bottle and measure how many cups of water it holds. Some will hold 4 cups of water; it's easier to know if you've filled the bottle twice in a day than to try to remember how many times you filled a glass that holds 1 or 2 cups. Another option is to flavor your water with pieces of fruit, using the same fruits in a certain order. So if you have a 4 cup water bottle and put in a slice of lemon in the morning and a diced strawberry in the afternoon, just by the flavor you'll know what refill you're on. There are many ways to keep track, though. You could put 8 rubber bands on your left wrist and each time you refill you move rubber bands to your right hand. You could have 8 pennies near your desk or near the sink and each time you refill you move them from one pile to another. Try several different methods and see what works for you.

  this girl is on fireeeeee!!! that's all I kept thinking and singing in my head while I read your blog! =D You are on the right track and it's awesome that you have your workout buddy. Keep up this great mood, attitude, and motivation! lol dating is time consuming...just work it into your schedule if you like it ;-) I think not weighing yourself is awesome for people like us that get discouraged once you step on the scale and see nothing when you're busting your booty and doing good. Keeping rocking it girl =)
