Glad that binge didn’t derail me.

CW: 126.4 lbs

Yesterday, I kept myself very busy and close to my meal plan to offset the really bad eating I did Wednesday night. I was attacked by the binge monster and sadly I lost. I kept eating very clean yesterday and got a lot of both formal exercise and informal exercise.

Week breakdown of workouts

Monday: pilates, 6.2 mile run, CardioX

Tuesday: pilates, 4.8 mile run, P90X Plyometrics,

Wednesday: Power walked 4 miles,Β Yoga, Ab Ripper X

Thursday: 6.2 mile run, cleaned house for 2 hours

Today I’m not going to run to rest my legs but I do plan on doing some form of exercise πŸ™‚

I really need to NOT see 126.x and the only way I can do that is if I stay true to goals!


Feels like forever?

Inching my way out of 126 and not giving up until I do! I know my body is capable of it. I just need to keep going.

For exercise yesterday, I started off with 20 minutes of pilates then I went for a 4.8 mile run. In the late afternoon, I tackled plyometricsX which kicked my butt and I loved it. At night, I did some weighted hula hooping while I watched TV.

Today is going to be lighter on the knees so I don’t hurt them but I do want to go for a shorter jog!

Hope you guys are all doing well and check out my public blog πŸ™‚ Let me know if you want a link!

New month, new goals…revisited

CW: 126.8 lbs

Slightly up today but I know I’ll see a downward trend soon since I did see 126.2 at one point last week. My body seems to fighting me tooth and nail and doesn’t want to get below 126 but I won’t get discouraged

Didn’t make my April goal of getting below 125 but I have every intention of being firmly in the low 120s before I head to Asia mid-June.

I’ve been pushing myself on the exercise front but I think eating can be a bit more vigilant so I’ll be working on that.

I’m feeling slightly blue today for a variety of reasons and hopefully I feel better soon.

Have a wonderful month everyone.

Hanging in there :)

CW: 126.6 lbs

Monday: Pilates, Yoga, Ran 5.6 miles

Tuesday: Pilates, Ran 6.2 miles

Wednesday: Pilates, CardioX, Yoga, Cleaned house

Thursday: Pilates, Ran 6.2 miles

Friday: Pilates, Ran 4.8 miles, Cleaned the house

I’ve also done weighted hula hooping every night this week while watching TV. All and all, I’ve been pushing myself in the exercise front. Food wise I’m happy to be eating smart portion sizes and no crazy cravings.

I’m normally good about not cravings things because I don’t let myself get super hungry with very scheduled eating. It’s the days leading up to Β TOM that I exhibit less control. Thankfully, that’s not anytime soon πŸ™‚

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Pushing myself!

CW: 126.2 lbs!

I can’t wait to see below 126 because it would be a huge milestone to get passed 125 which is my April gowl.

Monday: I ran 5.8 miles

Tuesday: I ran 6.2 miles

Today, my thighs are feeling slightly sore so I’m going to do other forms of exercise. Namely, pilates, yoga, vacuuming/mopping the floor and maybe CardioX in the afternoon or some Just Dance 3 on the kinect.

Hopefully, the weather cooperates and lets me run tomorrow πŸ™‚

Someone asked me how to build up to running long distance and I’ve never considered myself a long distance runner. Is 6 miles long distance?

CW: 127.2

A bit up from Sunday but after eating out Sunday afternoon at a buffet and running close to 6 miles yesterday, I figure it’s a combination of sodium and water retention. Even though I did eat at a buffet at Disney World, I made sure to only indulge in what I really wanted to eat. I also skipped dinner and had a light breakfast. Yesterday was on plan including a long run to burn off the extra carb reserves I always feel I have after I eat a lot of dessert (my weakness)

Today, I’m continuing pushing myself to run. I’m aiming for more than 6 miles today. I’m totally enjoying the cooler weather where I’m living!

Have a wonderful day everyone.

CW: 126.2 lbs

SW: 191.2 lbs

Highest Weight: 210-220 lbs

I’m finally seeing the results I want on the scale. I will push past the 126 and get lower because I’ve only seen ONCE 125.8 (which is practically 126). I will push past my comfort zone and not sabotage my efforts.

On my public blog, I finally bought a .com domain (for the year) for it. Let me know if anyone wants a link to it. I’ll be happy to share it with you guys.

well it’s working!

CW: 126.8 lbs (-1 lb from yesterday)

It’s finally getting to my comfortable range but I can’t let myself get complacent. I briefly saw 125.8 early April before seeing my weight fluctuate between 127-132 for a few weeks.

A few things that worked for me this week

Weighing myself daily

Not reaching for seconds at dinner

Brushing my teeth after dinner

Drinking hot chai tea after lunch to settle my stomach

Putting on form fitting clothes around the house

Keeping myself busy and productive

I can work with that

CW: 127.8 lbs

Finally down after seeing some highs of 131-132 for a few days last week. TOM arrived Easter Night so I was fighting the binge monster all week especially with the holidays and having jury duty throwing off my normal schedule.

I’ve tackling overeating the last few days. I was pleased with my exercise and food intake Monday and Tuesday. I need to re-focus on taking it day by day and really giving it my all instead of half-assing it.

I don’t know if it’s self-sabotage of me not thinking I can get below 126 but It seems every time I get around 126, I throw in the towel and waver between 5 pounds above that for a while. I need to believe in myself and push through this. It is worth it to be the best I can be.

Exercise Monday consisted of pilates in the morning, CardioX, vacuuming the house, mopping the house and an hour of yard work, and weighted hula hooping at night.

Exercise Tuesday consisted of pilates in the morning followed by yoga for 30 minutes. In the afternoon I tackled PlyometricsX determined to shed water weight and push myself. I also got a mile walk in. I finished off the night with more weighted hula hooping.

I’m not sure what I want to do today but I do know I like seeing the scale move down!

Happy Hump Day everyone πŸ™‚

Sore but loving it!

Same weigh-in as yesterday but I am sore in some parts of the body. TOM is still not here and I forget the exact date it was last time it came (Just an estimate) so it’s sometime this week. I hope I’m not late because I love the fact that I’m regular.

Food journaling has really helped rein in my cravings behavior. The fact I have to physically write it down makes me think about each bite a lot more. Another thing that has helped is keeping myself busy. Let me know just say my house is incredibly clean recently.

I hope you all have a nice holiday weekend! We’re decorating eggs today.
