A Binge, July Goals, and Wondering How Ill Work Out While Camping...

Monday, July 01, 2013

I will admit it. I will take full ownership of my actions last night. So I did it. I ate a whole pizza. By myself. I'm okay with it! It was a conscious binge, and I ate the pizza for lunch and dinner. I went with thin crust. I didn't get extra cheese. I got pineapple and Canadian bacon in lieu of the stuffed crust meatza pizza I tend to lean towards. So what? It happens!! ...and could have been a ton worse!

That leads me to July. I might slip up in July and that's ok, I'm human. Here are my goals:

Weight loss: 1-2 lbs per week, averaging 4-8 lbs over the month
Fitness: 500 Minutes
NSV: Eat 5 servings of freggies 5 times a week (always been a struggle)

That last one is most important.

I have a lot going on in the next couple of weeks. First up, 4th of July extended weekend. Food control and alcohol control will be key. I won't be able to Zumba. I don't know how I'm going to work out. Bear and wolves are around where I'm at and I'm not sure anyone in my family will be up for a walk. I will try. I will try my hardest.

I can do this. Suggestions for camp workouts appreciated.

    When I camp with my parents, I don't let myself sit down for too long. Even if I get up and just stand around, I figure it's better than sitting like a lump on a picnic table and sometimes standing around makes me want to go for little walks.
    I need to be more forgiving of myself for my recent pizza eating. Thank you!

    A picnic table is a great way to do tricep dips, planks, step ups, etc!!

    You can do it. Do small space exercises. Hell you could even jog in place or jog in circles around the tent/cabin.

    And I'm jelly, I want to camp.

    PIZZA HAPPENS! emoticon

    I'm sure you will do fine with exercise on your camping trip. If you have a jump rope and a resistance band or tube, there's a whole gym right there! Take an MP3 player or blast the radio in the car and bust out some funky dance moves. Put on your pack and do "laps" of walking lunges around the outside of your tent. Initiate a game of frisbee or catch (make it harder and challenge your core by trying to balance on one leg.)

    Oh, yeah, and burpees.

    Congrats on making healthier choices when ordering your pizza! There are days when I struggle because pizza is like my favorite thing..only I wouldn't order a healthier pizza like has to have all the yummy pepperoni on it! I do like Papa Murphy's Delite Pizzas though and one slice is under 200 cals :)

    Your goals look awesome!! All completely realistic and being positive is super important! If we let ourselves get down it will not be as easy to get back up! You have a great outlook on this!

    As far as camp workouts...I'm not sure how big your camp space is or if it's a tent or cabin or if your in the middle of the woods or in a campground BUT..some ideas I came up with were abs and push ups..yes not as much cardio as your prolly used to but you can do them almost anywhere and it will at least be something! Jumping jacks work too to get your heart rate going. Small things that might not seem like working out might help to get you through the weekend. :)

    P.S. I rented Zumba for my Kinect..OMG that stuff is HARD! I had to stop and switch over to dance central because I could not get the moves down even in the tutorial! I did DC for about an hour though and it was SO FUN! :)

    Have fun camping and Happy 4th of July!

    July's goals look great and I know you'll do great with them! I'm not sure what you mean by "camp workouts" exactly but on days that I am unable to go to a gym or a class I go to youtube - LOL! There is a channel on there called "FitnessBlender" and they have AWESOME workouts you can do anywhere, they also have a website fitnessblender(dot)com.

    Keep that beautiful spirit up hun! xoxo

    You have such a great plan in place and knowing some of the obstacles that July is going to bring and being prepared for that is going to help you so much!! I also love your weight loss goal of 4-8 pounds. So realistic and awesome. I used to get annoyed when I was "only" losing 6 pounds a month and now that I've been stuck and have to fight tooth and nail for every pound, 6 pounds a month sounds like heaven.

    You are awesome, keep up the great work! emoticon
