PAWSE UP (Week 4)

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Ok last week was a good week for me, but was tired several days of the week. Had a 1.8 lbs weight loss and stuck to my game plan and goals. Had several little bumps to overcome, but overall a good week. This weeks PAWSE will be:

Plan/ Prepare
will continue planning meals out. will continue preparing meals on off days for rest of the week. Has helped tremendously with work and eating right. not as rushed, more time to workout. Started making a bowl of rice or quinoa to keep on hand. Then I can just throw some veggies in skillet for a few minutes add rice or quinoa and I have a very quick healthy lunch. Have got better at planning out workout on weekends.

Have been using both nutrition and fitness trackers. Pushing myself to try to get in an extra workout here and there. Have been watching deficient. First week was way off. This week was a lot closer. This week was the closet yet.

Last week was a good week for weight loss. My weight loss this week is where I want to be realisticly each week. Going to keep looking for something new just for the change up Know at some point I will have that plateau week, so doing my best to try to keep body confused. May throw some Zumba at it.

SET a non scale and Scale goal.
My non scale goal would be to continue eating healthy.
my scale goal is to loose 2 - 3 lbs this week. Realistically I need to be at 1 1/2 to 2.

catching those extra minutes whenever I can. This past week worked in some unplanned extra walking(Walk, Walk,Walk, Walk) with leslie Sansone.

    Congrats on the loss ! I agree that making meals is key - I do that prepare rice in a steamer to have on hand - makes easy stir fry or fried rice . I like easy as we schedules for workouts become more regimented . I was wondering in you use a protein powder ? Great job on the Tracking !! emoticon

    Sounds like a good plan. You have been doing a great job each week. I'm glad that you are being realistic on where you should be. Keeping your body guessing by doing a variety of workouts is a great way to keep things moving. emoticon

    You have a great plan. I have tried some Zumba on You tube and liked it. I am thinking of getting the new Zumba with the Rizer. Tayana is right, be sure with all your exercise you are eating enough. You don't want your body to think it is starving and stop releasing any weight at all. emoticon

    Awesome plan! I checked your trackers, man, you need to eat more! 1000cals = heart attack, seriously. If you exercise as much as you do and don't eat enough, your body starts to eat your muscles, and since a heart is a muscle too, you can seriously damage it. You can increase number calories and still lose a ton of weight and have more energy, if you follow simple rule of separating carbs and protein. Which means: if you eat rice, don't eat meat, and vise versa. You've been doing an awesome job eating a lot of veggies.

    Sorry, if I sound pushy. I know how addictive it could be to lose weight fast. It's so exciting, it's easy to forget that number one reason we're doing it for - is to be healthy!
    Keep and awesome job!
