January 2016 progress

Sunday, January 31, 2016      3 comments

Now that I have sat back and reviewed everything, I am making a progress. I figured out what calories range work for me to burn the fat. I ate below 1500 calories at the beginning of the month and that didn't make any difference. It c... Read more

We had a great day today! I spent my time off with two of my favorite people. Hubby and I swam laps. He was going further and further each time he swam. He was a runner. He'd rather not run now to prevent any injury to his back or knees. S... Read more

My husband says it might not be a bad idea for me to chuck the scales out of the window. He says I am obviously losing fat (I say fat, not weight, hence the scale gripe). Also, he says with the way I have been exercising, I will not see the chan... Read more

I went in thinking I was going to do the regular half mile. Then I felt like keeping on going. This is a mile of 1x20 kick drill and 1x54 crawl... Read more

Reminders to myself

1) I'm still in muscle building phase. It happens everytime I start a routine. Therefore..... 2) Don't pay attention to the scale. Pay attention to the measuring tape and how the clothes fit. 3) Eat at least the low range calories every day.... Read more

Correct measurement but...

The swimsuit arrived but it won't fit right. I have the correct measurements to match the size. My chest measurement match the swimsuit size but that's due to the width of my torso. I don't have the racks to fill the cups properly. Therefor... Read more

Now that the water weight is gone, I won't be seeing rapid changes on my scale. It's a game of trying to keep the water retention away for now. I need to watch my sodium intake level! I know keeping track of my nutrition intake religiously ... Read more

We were planning to do lap swim tonight but it turned out my husband had something going on early tomorrow morning. He stayed home to have an early night. It's the end of the year and taxes are coming up. I have started gathering every comp... Read more

Here we are. A year and a few months later. I fell of the wagon again. 2015 has been a difficult year, work wise. My time and energy were focused mostly on the new project at work, on top of taking care of the family. Not an excuse for sure, bec... Read more

I have exercised during 3 out 4 days of fasting. A 30 minutes bike ride and two half a mile swims. They weren't bad. I did these about an hour before break fast time so, I wasn't thirsty for long. My weight has continued to drop stea... Read more

Well, fasting month is here. I am looking forward to fasting. Other than religious reasons, it'll be great to get rid of toxic and whatnot from my body this month. With fasting, I'll probably won't be working out as hard as I had these past... Read more
