Forward Moving

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

So I am (almost) caught up on grading. I plan to go to Starbucks early tomorrow and finish up. That makes life a little more bearable. Now all the parents emailing and calling about their son or daughter's missing work has begun, so that adds another dimension to the stress, but I just try to treat each situation with integrity and patience.

I haven't been training hard enough. I mean, I went on hikes the past two days and today, I went on a short walk and lifted...one of the kids at the daycare that I work as he attacked me full force over and over again. Nonetheless, if I want to be ready for the Spartan race, I need to seriously up my ante. I need to be doing burpees, squats, some interval training, running more... I need to find that push.

Today was a bit difficult to get on track. Although I didn't eat trigger foods (besides diet coke), I ate more than my calories for the day, ate way too much cheese specifically, and went a bit over carbs. I am easing my way back into eating according to plan, but I need to have a sense of urgency about it.

I want to be 150 by April/May, which means that I need to lose 50 pounds in six months. That means I need to start steadily losing two pounds a week, and that is hard to maintain without some serious vigilance.

I will return to IF tomorrow and stick to 1500 calories per day and exercise more intensely (and try to exercise 500 calories off).

    Good luck! That is ambitious. I do not have a specific weight goal,having never been thin... no idea what will look good. So I just keep on with the cardio and starting lifting heavy weights. emoticon
