Week1 Day3

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

I think this is officially the longest i have ever stuck with a diet. I am so proud of myself. Even though i went over my calorie intake a little. But i'm having my time of the month and needed chocolate. But even so i didn't go over to bad and i'm hoping to make up for it Thursday and Friday. On one hand I'm excited cause i get to see my dad Thursday and my sister Friday. But on the other hand I'm afraid they won't have anything there i can eat. I know there eating habits and it scares me a little.

Anyway I'm hoping to make up for the extra calories because i would like to go to the state park with my dad on Thursday and climb up 303 steps to the top of a mountain. Its so worth the climb. And on Friday I'm hoping to convince my sister to talk the 4 1/2 mile walk on the foundation trail with me. That should make up for those chocolate calories lol.

I did really good with my work out and my boyfriend and little girl came with me on my walk. So it was a great way to spend time with my family and get a work out in. I can tell I'm getting stronger cause, I did 7 different strength training exercises with 3 sets of 15 reps. Where before I could barely do 2 sets. Plus I can almost do all 15 reps at once without having to stop and rest halfway. Especially those bent knees chair press things. Where you hang off the end of a chair and do a backward push up type thing lol. I use to have to stop and rest for a few seconds, every 5 reps. Now on all 3 sets I did the 15 without a rest. It was an amazing feeling.

Anyone else watch biggest loser? I love that show. It gives me so much inspiration and motivation to just keep pushing. I see all the hard work these people put in and how great they look near the end of the seasons and I know that if they can do it, so can I. I'm just glad I don't want to lose as much as they do in a week. I'm hoping my skin won't be as saggy at the end, but i don't know if maybe that is just inevitable because I have stretched it out so far from gaining all this weight.

Well I think that ends my thoughts and doing for the day. Oh and if anyone wants to be spark friends I am always looking for more people to support and encourage me and visa versa. So stop by my page and add me and I'll do that same for you. Have a great night everyone and see you all tomorrow.

    That is great that you are sticking with this. It helps because with spark, it doesn't even seem like a diet. Hey,a girl has to have her chocolate during that time! I think most girls would agree. :P :)

    Personally, I don't watch The Biggest Loser b/c I feel like it promotes a very unrealistic way to lose weight. Losing weight is amount making small changes over time and about being consistent which isn't what the show promotes. I also don't like trainers like Jillian Michaels. I know she is pushing the contestants but if someone was drilling me like that, I would be angry, not motivated. That is just me though. If it inspires you, that is great and you should always stick with what motivates YOU. :D

    As for the saggy skin, I hear that strength training helps prevent it or at least lessens the severity. I have no idea if that is true or not. I worry about the same thing! I guess we should just focus on getting the lbs off for now. :)
