I decided to try getting back to my Turbo Fire workouts yesterday, despite not being 100% sure if my foot was ready. Thankfully, the next workout on the schedule was the Low HIIT 20. "HIIT" stands for high-intensity interval training. It was low... Read more
How the wedding went
The wedding on Saturday was beautiful, and we are so happy for my husband's friend! It wasn't hard to eat healthy at the reception. It was Mediterranean food. And the wedding cake was strawberry shortcake! No wonder the bride was so thin (a heal... Read more
Going to a wedding tomorrow
Today I did pretty good overall, though I did go over my calorie range goal a bit more than I would have liked, because I was just too hungry. At least I went over my goal with healthy food.
This is going to take some getting used to. I'm ... Read more
I did it!
At this point, I am celebrating every small victory. Yesterday I accomplished my goal of going to the park for one hour, AND, stayed within my calorie range! It wasn't easy. My plan was to stay between 1500-1600 cals, but I went a bit over that.... Read more
Not a failure!
Here I am, starting once again. I could easily say that I'm a failure at losing weight, and I HAVE said that to myself many times. But it really isn't true. Failing at something that you COULD succeed at if you simply follow the rules is only T... Read more
Journal: Try, try again
Days 4 & 5 of the Inferno Plan went up in flames, so to speak, but not because I didn't want to stick to it. Life happened, and I had no choice but to go off the plan. But I felt so good after only 3 days on the plan that I can't WAIT to start o... Read more
Journal: Day 1 & 2 of 5-Day Inferno Plan
In my Turbo Fire workout kit that I ordered awhile back, a 5-Day Inferno Plan was included. At that time, I ignored it when I saw daily calories: around 1200. I had tried 1200-calorie plans before, only to wind up being so hungry that I wanted t... Read more
MAJOR wake-up call~couldn't pull myself up!
I have struggled. A lot. Been close to my goal weight, only to have an injury, then a recovery, then another injury. Disappointment got the better of me and well... here I am, pounds back on and out of shape again.
Today was a good example ... Read more
Time to simplify again with my "Roll-over" plan
I've been struggling to keep track of my calories lately, especially with "life" happenings.
So today, I'm going back to a plan that worked for me awhile back when I did it.
What I do is divide my total calories for the day into cert... Read more
Be reckless, take risks, go fast.
Simply put, yet so profound. "Be reckless, take risks, go fast." That was the answer given by a professional snowboarder today on TV who had just won a race, when asked how he did it.
Normally I wouldn't agree with being reckless, but I don... Read more
Conquered the big bridge!
Last night was pizza at Pizza Hut, as you may know if you read my last Blog entry. I decided on the Pepperoni & Mushroom Personal Size Pizza (6"), which was 570 cals. Not great, but not too bad, either. I ordered the Veggie personal size pizza f... Read more
1/2 lb loss this week. Could have done better, but I'll take it. Earlier in the week, I had shown a 2.5 loss already, but I didn't stay consistent with tracking my cals, so....
At least I still lost "something." And at least I've... Read more
Not giving up!
I'm back... again! It's been an up and down battle over the past few months, and now I'm back on the up side. I figure if I just don't give up, eventually I'll reach my goal!
I'm now about 27 pounds away from my goal weight. I'm 5'8" and cu... Read more
My Thanksgiving Surprise
It's been awhile since I've posted. Before I talk about Thanksgiving, here's quick update: I decided to become a health & fitness coach, even though I'm not at my goal weight yet. I figured it would give me accountability, more knowledge about h... Read more
So the fierce hunger I had Monday subsided, thankfully, and I'm doing better. I had a talk with a good friend of mine yesterday and she really inspired me. In so many words, she reminded me not to allow negative self-defeating talk, and to start... Read more
