Holy Moving Scale, Batman!
I could barely believe my eyes. Yesterday, I weighed in 1 lb lighter than the day before. Today, I was again surprised...another .8 lbs down. 1.8 lbs down in 48 hours? Yahoo! I'll take it!
The interval training is really working! I have ha... Read more
Interval Training Fixed My Plateau Issue!
After two days of interval training on the elliptical, the scale moved! Hallelujah! Also, if you can see my caloric intake for this week...it varied by day...but was still in the allowable range. I did some reading about plateaus, and both of t... Read more
How I lost my first 11 lbs.
Today is about appreciating my achievement. I would rather stay positive and not give up. The scale will move slowly, and I have to accept that. I have some people saying 'give your body a day or two of rest'...but I feel that I would come up wi... Read more
Two days this week, I have not worked out. I am not worried about the other days. But I am still feeling very stuck. I feel like there is something that I should be doing to move the numbers on the scale. I did start February right by measuring ... Read more
Taking some advice from a coworker
She told me that she recently read in Prevention magazine that the key to weight loss is shocking your body during the workout. So let's say you go 2.3 on the treadmill. Up it to 5.0 so you are running and do this for 30 sec-1 minute. Do this in... Read more
Not Too Shabby
Well, I definitely indulged at the Super Bowl party at the neighbor's. Despite the overage, it wasn't as bad as I thought. I would definitely giggle if I lost more on this week's weigh in from it! I am not as hungry today...so I guess it can all... Read more
Challenging evening; Change will do you good
On the cusp of the TOM, I was ravenous yesterday evening. It was not thirst. I had consumed 60 oz of water yesterday. Major munchies attack! I calmed myself, focused, did some lookups on calorie counts, and made my choices. I made a hot apple fo... Read more
34 pushing 40
I decided that today was the day I would up my minutes on the elliptical. After reading an article (or quiz...I think), I was concerned that I wasn't staying on long enough to get my 20 minutes of accelerated heartrate time in. I don't usually g... Read more
Stuck stuck stuck
That's me. I'm floating between 10-11 lbs down. The monthly visitor is due soon...I sure hope it is because of her. I know that I am getting enough of what I should because I am journaling daily. I'm on the cusp of feeling that I need to extend ... Read more
The last couple days I have exerted a lot of energy outdoors, and forgot how easily it is to become dehydrated! I am going to push the water heavily today, in the hopes that I will repair my body. I have been away from the elliptical for a day a... Read more
The Beauty of Winter Weather
Yesterday, I had a chance to shovel some snow. I decided to get in a cardio workout too because I was worried about getting enough calories burned for the day. Today, I decided to be a good samaritan and shovel more for my neighbors, so I am goi... Read more
I did very well for breakfast and lunch, and got all my water. I went to a home party (Tastefully Simple) and tried to determine what I consumed. Hard because I tried less than a tsp of everything, and ate it off of peppers (instead of bread). I... Read more
Note to Self!
Do not consume a reasonable breakfast, then TaeBo, and then no eating until 5pm!!! I was so sleepy from lack of calories! I took my kiddos to the movies and knew everything but the bottled water was off limits. A chicken breast has never tasted ... Read more
