UNDER 200 !!!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Today I reached a milestone. A BIG one. The evil doctor's office scale conceded and I am UNDER 200 lbs! I haven't been able to start with a 1-- for years! Well, I mean... my drivers license starts with a 1... but that's a whole other story.

Anyway, I did it. 198.4 per the doctor scale. I (duh) took off my shoes, but I was still wearing clothes. This is really a big deal because over the past few months, it has been VERY difficult to eat right and exercise. First, I hit a plateau and then I quit tracking my food and the scale started to creep upwards. I was TERRIFIED. I was up to 208 (from 202) and I knew I had to get back on the bandwagon and fast.

I'm not going to make it to 100 lbs lost before I turn 30. The reality of that hit a few months ago - right around the time I gave up for a while. I just... I don't know, I don't have a good excuse or explanation for falling off track. I just did.

For the past month or so, I have worked really hard. I dropped 5 lbs quickly and the next 5 came off slowly. I feel like I'm back in control and back in my routine.

I've got another 24 pounds to lose before I reach 100. I won't make it in the 75 days that I have left before my birthday, but I'm going to try to bang out as much as possible by the end of the year.

Things I would like to build:
- Abs
- Cardio/Stamina
- Thighs

How will I do it?
- Abs
- 15 minutes of Abs 3 days a week
- Cardio
- Add 2 days of Indoor Cardio per week (Tennis is ending)
- Thighs
- Lunges, Squats 3 days a week

Things I've done well to get under 200:
- Arm Strength
- Between TRX class and Yoga, my upper body is in great shape
- Scheduling Exercise Time
- I set up my schedule and I stick to it.
- Diet
- Planning meals and making smart portion choices

I don't know that this is all that inspiring, but I feel like the more focused I stay on the "How," the more likely I will be to execute this strategy.

Keep pushing, friends!

    OMG emoticon That is super fantastic! You can totally hit your goal in 75 days, but don't beat yourself up if don't. The most important thing is that your DOING IT! Congrats on getting to ONEderland!

I'm not sure exactly what you do but varying your routine may help. I am a huge fan of Turbo Jam and anything kickbox...super fun and major calorie busters!
