Back at it...

Friday, March 25, 2011

So a month has passed since my last blog and since then I have gained back 10 lbs! BOO!!! emoticon

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!! emoticon emoticon

Monday I went to the gym!! emoticon
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!! emoticon

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!!!

    You're back at it now and that's what is important. Don't let yourself get discouraged by your actions over the last month. If you can't go back and redo it, then why stress about it. The stress is only going to hinder your weight loss even more. Now that you're back on track, just remember what you're working toward. If you get off a little, reach out to your SparkFriends. We are here for support if you need us!!! Good luck!

    I'm glad to hear you're back at it!! Congrats on a great week!! That's so awesome that you walked home!! Sending you ***motivation vibes!!*** Keep with it. You WILL reach your goal weight. Just maybe not by your deadline. Don't let that get you down. I've wavered in my motivation & there's no way I'll reach my goal by my deadline but I'm not gonna let that stop me from seeing how close I can get. Even if it takes me longer - so what. I've got the rest of my life, right?

    Just remember - bumps in the road make us better drivers!!! (Hey, not bad ~ I just made that up. lol!!)
