plugging along

Monday, March 16, 2015

On a whim last week, I joined Anytime Fitness for 18 months. It was only 38 a month. I have been wanting to use some gym equipment like the stationary bikes and elliptical. One thing I like about anytime fitness is that I can go anytime I want :) The university where I teach has a gym but it is always closed when I want to go. So I got mad at them, and changed. Hence the on the whim anytime fitness membership. I have been enjoying going. On days that I am not running I will be hitting the gym :)

I slept horrible last night but I was able to push myself to run this morning. I did W1D3 on C25K program. I was a bit slow this morning, but I did it. That is all that matters to me. My HRM only beeped at me once for my heart rate being too high.

I have lost 21 pounds since December. I feel like that is good progress. I would love to be down 100 around Christmas time. We will see what happens. I am beginning to see some changes but not a lot. The main change is the clothes are fitting a little looser and I can squeeze into a size smaller. Makes me happy :)

I also am doing a piyro group starting at the end of the month. Hopefully I can keep up with everything and still find time to prep for classes and do my normal job. But I want to get healthy and look good for the beach in December. So with beachbody, I also have a month or 24 servings of shakeology. It is okay. I did half a packet this morning and it tastes just fine. I did milk and a whole banana with a little bit of peanut butter. It is supposed to replace a meal. We will see about that. I spent a lot of time reading about it and a lot of what I read said that a full packet was very sweet. So I started with half packet and it is very sweet especially first thing in the morning.

I did go to the drs this week. She put me on 20 mg of a blood pressure medicine. Not really what I wanted, but that is the way it is right now. As soon as I can get it back down to the "healthy range" I will be coming off of the pills. She kept talking about my weight, and it was getting annoying. Cause I know that I need to lose weight. I am just having a hard to time trying to figure out why my blood pressure is so high this year and last year I was the same weight and my blood pressure was where it was supposed to be. As a keep plugging along, it should drop. That is my ultimate goal.

    Good luck in your journey. You seem to manage very well. On top of that, 21 lbs in about 10 weeks is very good. You must be very discipline with food and exercise.

    Keep us posted,
