100 Days of TaeBo!

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Today marks my 100th straight day of TaeBo Basic. That's really an accomplishment considering I was in the hospital yesterday. I had really bad stomach cramps after finishing my run on Thursday night. I hardly slept, and the cramps just got worse on Friday, so I had my husband take me to the emergency room. They don't know exactly what was causing them -- either a virus, or my calorie restriction along with not drinking enough water. I can definitely do better on the water end, and work on getting in enough healthy calories each day.

I was determined not to miss my 100th straight day of exercise today, but I was concerned that I wouldn't feel well enough to do it. Well, I felt great this morning, and I got through it just fine.

Today was my weigh in day at Weight Watchers as well. I was only down .2 lbs., becaue my weight spiked 3 lbs. on Monday. Not sure why. I spent the whole week trying to get it back down, which explains why my doctor told me I haven't been taking in enough calories.

I need to find a consistent plan that works for me. I've explored calorie counting, WW points counting, raw veganism, Paleo, intermittent fasting and some others. How I eat each week is really determined by what's going on in my life. This week, I haven't had much time to plan meals, so I'm a bit out of sorts. Looking forward to getting on a consistent schedule in the coming weeks.

This week, I'll be focused on upping my water intake, and being consistent with my meal plan.

Starting weight loss goal: 91.6 lbs.
Weight lost thus far: 21.6 lbs.
Lbs. 'til goal: 70 lbs.

    Hormones can cause spikes. I spike 2-4 lbs at ovulation--which is pretty much all water (my thirst goes way up then). It could also be some reaction to the running, or extra salt in some food, or a whole array of things that don't mean you suddenly gained fat.

    Wow, congrats about 100 days in a row of TaeBo! That's an incredible commitment. And I think that TaeBo is a really great way to exercise.

    I also hope that you feel better soon. I think your desire to not skip a day is fantastic, and I wish I could be as motivated, but of course, if you're hurting, then sometimes you have to cut yourself some slack. I really hope you feel better soon, and congrats again on your dedication to fitness.
