ugh must get back on track. This is a good week to do so as I will be in town all week so it’s easier to avoid restaurant food except that we went out to eat twice this weekend. oops. But we had fun!
I did make a menu for the week so hopefully that will help. I’m also planning on 1 or 2 cleanse days this week.
Here’s the workout plan for the week:
- Mon – run 1/2 hour
- Tues – run 1/2 hour; strength 1/2 hour
- Wed – Kinect Your Shape
- Thurs – run 1/2 hour; yoga
- Fri – run 1/2 hour; strength
- Sat – none
- Sun – none
Without the focus of the couch to 5K or marathon training, I haven’t been as awesome with working out. I think I need to create a quarter marathon training plan so I have something more structured to work with. Otherwise I just tend to avoid. Ah good habits are hard to establish.
Oh I have been questionable at my goals the past couple of weeks, but I feel like I can make a difference this week and next before vacation. I am on the road this week so it’s all about careful planning and discipline. Starting with making some smart room service choices for this evening. I have tons of work to catch up on due to sitting on planes all day so I need to buckle down. Plus I need to build in time to get a quick workout in.
The one bonus for traveling this week is that really beautiful weather is expected this week in Jackson. Here’s a little view from my hotel room taken with my run retro camera app on my new phone. It’s probably my fave app ever!
Hope you enjoy your week!
It was a bad week for progress. Let’s just say you can’t drink as much beer as I did this week and expect to lose any weight. But rather than give up, I’ll just carry on! Hoping I can make it up this week while onsite. I have a plan. I have breakfast covered so no temptation to get fattening breakfast. Lunch will likely be veggie delites from subway. Dinner is the biggest issue, but I’m planning to be too busy for long sit down dinners so I should be able to do salads most nights. I’m planning to be too busy because I plan to do some extra exercising while onsite since I won’t be missing family time in the evening by doing so. Let’s hope this plan works out! I plan to repeat it next week while onsite. Then one week at home and then Eric and I are taking vacation so I’d hope to at least feel like I did a good job for a few weeks before that.
I will defeat you baby weight and then before baby weight!
I have been very excited to make this post because I finally finally hit one of my goals and lost 15 lbs. This took me considerably longer than I wanted, but I think that instead of beating myself up over that I’ll just celebrate 15 lbs gone!
I mentioned last week that I switched back to tracking my food from weight watchers. Well I am using the same account that I started with at some point last year. The weight tracking on that site is what made me realize um hello you are losing weight and every little bit you lose week by week adds up. You don’t need to lose 20 lbs all at once, but if you lost 1-2 pounds a week it really wouldn’t take very long to see that change. So all these little movements down really did add up to 15. So I will take those little movements downward in the scale.
Last week I did bring my lunch with me every day and only went to the cafeteria for one day. Hurray! I attribute that as a factor in reaching my 15 lbs last week.
This week I plan to repeat that same food goal. Bring my lunch to work. Only hit the cafeteria 1 day this week.
My exercise goal this week is just to exercise. I’ve been very bad with exercising lately so my goal this week is just to do something exercise related for a half hour every day. I just have to move purposefully for a half hour daily. Shouldn’t be that hard!
Overall weight goal is to hit 20 lbs lost! woohoo!
Well, in my two weeks away, I managed not only to not gain weight but I also lost some weight. Yay! But then I was very naughty with eating this weekend, but I have until Friday before I weigh in so there’s time to recoup the damage.
This week my plan is to bring lunch to work with me. I am allowing one day of not so I’ll see when friends are free to go to the cafeteria.
I didn’t work out at all last week due to work crazyness, lazyness and a terrible cold/allergy combo thingy that kept me from breating through my nose. Nothing is sexier than when you have to breathe through your mouth and workout. No one wants to be next to that person in the workout room. 🙂 This week I get to workout in the comfort of my own home so I can be as unattractive as necessary. Probably going to take advantage of having my kinect and do my personal training workout on there for the week. Otherwise probably try to get in a day or two of running. I have the quarter marathon in May, but for the moment I’m not focused on training for that I’m more focused on getting in good habits.
In other weight loss related items I did start tracking online with Weight Watchers. I don’t like the meetings it’s too much stress if I didn’t lose any weight and then in my own weird way I start to rebel against them and stop trying, but I think if I do it online and on my own I’ll be better. So far it has really helped with being onsite especially. That’s really the hardest because we go out to eat ALL THE TIME! Mainly because there is no other choice.
Well, last week while traveling not only did I manage not to gain any weight or even just maintain, I actually lost weight. I was pretty excited. My goal this week is to see if i can repeat that on this trip. I will be further south, which equals more fried food, but I’ll see what I can do. I switched to tracking my food to weight watchers online. It’s just easier than the other programs I’ve tried using. The real key is to actually use it consistently. So far so good.
Goals this week include tracking food intake every day, stay within points, exercise half hour a day, and to make the best choice possible when going out to eat.
I will not claim to have a very healthy lifestyle, but I am making slow changes towards being healthier.
Without even really thinking about it I stopped drinking my usual 4-5 Pepsi Maxes a day last week. I realized that I wasn’t really enjoying it so I just stopped. I have replaced a bit with coffee since I do have an intense caffeine addiction, but I’m slowly moving away from needing so much caffeine.
I also finally bought a happy light. Winter in Wisconsin really gets me down. I’ve spent alot of time with my light so far and it’s making me feel way better. It really does help energize me. So if you have the SAD I recommend a happy light. 🙂
