Almost Starting All Over

Sunday, April 11, 2010

This morning I stepped on the scales and was disappointed to see what I knew was happening. I'm putting weight back on. It's not mysterious how this is happening. I've been snacking on Tostitos while cooking dinner, having a cocktail or two during the week before dinner, and, oh yes, finishing off the coconut cream pie from Easter. Of the 8 lbs. I lost, 6 of them are back, and I can definitely feel and see each and every one of them.

It's time to get back to tracking my food and eating consciously. To make sure I'm accountable, I'm sharing this week's goals:

April 12-18

Calories: average 1500 per day
Plan my meals at least 1 day in advance.

Monday: 45-55 minutes of running
Breakfast: cereal and milk, 1/2 banana, oj
Snack: pear
Lunch: cottage cheese, celery w/cr. cheese & olives
Snack: Hummus and green peppers
Dinner: Hamburger, Sandwich Thin, Beets
Dessert: Yogurt with Strawberries

Tuesday: 45 minutes of yoga; 45 minutes of running (running club)
Wednesday: 45 minutes of yoga; P90X
Thursday: 45 minutes of yoga; 45-55 minutes of running
Friday: 90 minutes of yoga
Saturday: 60 minutes running
Sunday: P90X; 30 minutes of yoga

    You are training hard for a marathon and it is common to put on weight. Don't be too hard on yourself, just try to eat healthy fuel and don't stress your body too much in these last crucial weeks. Suzy

    I was sick for 6 days and I'm just getting back on track. I got up this morning and did the BL Boot Camp - it felt SOOOOO good! I didn't gain any weight back - probably because I wasn't eating much - LOL but I know that my fitness level has suffered. It sounds like you are taking control and getting back on track - I think that is what we all need to do each and every day - make a plan and stick to it! You can do anything you set your mind to - I know that you believe in yourself and that you know you can do anything! Hang in there!

    Yeah, life is like that, two steps forward and one back. You've got your eyes back forward and your ready to go.

    Planning on tracking everything and staying under 1500.
    I've gained back almost all of the 18 lb I lost last year.
