So a month has passed since my last blog and since then I have gained back 10 lbs! BOO!!!
Cant cry about it too much tho. I know I wasn't making the best choices for my body. I wasnt getting the workouts in I needed. I was eating EVERYTHING around me. I was letting other peoples actions dictate my own and I now I need to change!!
I dont know where my drive went. It's like once I dipped below 200 all my determination went away and gaining the 10 lbs makes me feel kinda like a loser. Kinda. Anyways, I did make some attempts at starting new the next day. I went on a few walks/jogs, made it to the gym maybe 6-7 times but I must admit that half of those trips I went and half assed it. I just couldnt get the motivation to start and follow through with a whole workout. One day I remember I was doing crunches on the slanted bench at the gym, facing the mirror and all I could think "why did you do this? 10 pounds!! Really? You're never going to reach your goal now. 185 pounds by the middle of April? Girl, be real." And I just gave up. I was defeated. I hated that feeling.
Sunday was the last time I started anew. It wasn't much. I was waiting for the bus to come, checked the schedule and it said 25 minutes. I wondered how far down the hill I could get in those 25 mins that I would have just been standing and waiting. I ended up near a mile down the way before the bus even made it to me! I ended up walking the rest of the day home!!
Monday I went to the gym!!
I really wanted to get some cardio in. It felt like forever since I had had a good cardio session...it was very much needed.
Sprints 5 - 1 min on/1min off
5k on treadmill -- I can't remember exact time but was around 50 mins. Every 1/4 of a mile I would switch off running and walking. Running at 4.9-5.0, Walking at 3.4
Tuesday I went for a 2.57 mile hike. 75 mins
Thursday same hike 2.57 miles - 60 mins
I feel pretty good!!
My eating has been alright. I haven't been tracking but I want to be more consistent about it. I start off alright but get bored some time in. But I have been trying to be more aware of the portion sizes I've been taking and that plus no soda..water, water, water... I have lost 4 lbs!!!
