Being sick is the pits

So I have been super sick this week. I think I will head to medical on Tuesday to see if its allergies or a super bad cold. Its waking me up at night and I feel like poo. I am going to start my new program Monday. Running on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and cross training on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Once we get the new dog I will probably walk on my off days with the dog including Sunday. But nothing too crazy :). So that is my goal we will see how it works out.

what I am working on right this moment

So after a rough week last week I am kicking it into gear tonight. I am going to push myself hard tonight when I do my work out. I have two more weeks of this work out for the program. I will probably do one more week to make up the days I missed. But I am still doing ok. I did work out four days last week and will get another four in this week. I hope to do all six next week. The hard part is how easily my routine can get out of sync when people show up or something unexpected happens. Perhaps I should learn a better way of coping than eating. And strive to work out regardless of who is visiting. I did work out the first day Chris was in the hospital but the second week I slacked off. And this week I let my monthly cycle get in the way. I just need to keep moving forward. Anything is better than nothing and I can't go back and have a do over. Three days a week will maintain they say. So anything more will burn extra. Now if I could just get my eating under control without feeling deprived I would be great.

Monday May 17th

Well as of either Monday or Tuesday this week I was down another pound. It was a rough week overall with family here, stress, and my birthday. But we made it through. I missed my workout on Thursday due to having a flu bug :(. And Friday I took off since it was the families last night in town. I went for a great run/walk this morning at 730am. It was great. I am really digging the running and can't wait to start making it a normal part of my routine. I have two more weeks of the slim in 6 and I am seeing results so I want to finish it out. I committed and dang it I am going to finish. But I think Saturday I am going to run no matter what :). I can see a difference in my body despite nothing huge on the scale. I feel better :).

Despite the rough day

Despite spending all day in the emergency room and the hospital and being totally drained I still worked out for 30min.  It was rough I am not going to lie but I am super glad I did it.  Hopefully Chris will be home from the hospital tomorrow.

Places I visit

www.wowy.com (beachbody website)
www.justmommies.com (the weightloss and fitness mommies section)

I will add others as I go along.

Food issues

OK I have food issues.  One week I am failing the workout because I am not eating enough.  So I stopped counting calories in an effort to not under eat.  So now I am either overeating or under eating but eating all the wrong crap.  I need to sit down, plan out some meals and snacks and figure this shit out.  Because this isn't working.  I couldn't even finish the workout.  I only 20 mins of the work out before I started getting dizzy and couldn't go on.  GRRRR so frustrating.  Ok well tomorrow is a new day and we can try again.

Getting to the good part

I realized today that I have reached that point where I don't have to force the work out.  I look forward to it.  I want to rush home and work out because I know A) I will feel great afterwards and B) I am improving and losing inches.
I am down another inch around my waist to 39.5 inches.  Ok not great :( but moving down from the 43 I was at when I started.
I wasn't hurting as much today as I was after my first run.  I just have to stick with it.  And I think the abs and stretching after helped.  I didn't feel I was missing out on my slim in 6.  I found a solution to my problem.

So tonight I was able to finish the whole video.  Tired afterwards but it was a good 47 min work out.  I did 2 sets of 12 girl push ups which is up from the one set of 5 I was doing when I started 2 1/2 weeks ago.  Even though I missed yesterday I improved so much today.  I did all the arm work outs which is new :).  And I did the end leg workouts the first two sets without a break.  The third set I reseted twice on each side but finished strong.  I did all the ab stuff without taking a break.  I really pushed it today.  My diet was good except the coffee I had this morning but I think I worked that off.  It was my breakfast after all.  All in all a good week so far.  It will be interesting to see if I lost any weight.  With all the improvements I might not.  Muscle is better anyway :).

Ah Dang!

So Monday I did my first run for my C25K program.  Then I did the Start It Up! video from slim in 6.  I think that was a bit of an overkill.  I was hurting that night and all the next day.  I did take Tuesday off, shame on me.  But I feel 100% today so maybe it was a good option.  I did not run today :(.  I am trying to decide if Monday was a product of to much over training or something else.  I am going with the over doing it theory at the moment.  I am super excited to run so I emailed my beachbody coach for some advice on how to work that into my routine.  Hopefully she will have some ideas.  Worst case senario I will start it again after my 6 weeks is up.  By then I should be in even better shape and be good to go.  So either way still doing good.  My eating has gotten a little out of control although I still think I am in the 1500-1800 range.  But 1300 was just to few and I was cranky and no energy.  I can do this without cutting so many calories.  Its about better choices.  Ok well enough ramble time to go work out.

So my abs are hurting a bit today and my thighs are feeling a bit sore.  Glad today is my day off.  I am making spaghetti tonight for dinner.  No garlic bread though :(.  That would have been yummy.  Tomorrow is the start of week three for my Slim in 6 and I am so excited.  I am down 2 inches in my waist and 1 inch in my hips.  If I don't flex I am actually down 1 inch on both arms.  I am moving down.  Body Fat is out of control but I think I will wait another two weeks to see how that goes.  I think it has gone down to.  Just not sure how much.  I think it might be 1% in a week.  I think that would be a good amount of movement.  June 5th is the last day of Slim in 6.  There are 36 workouts and I have done 12.  So only 24 more to go.  I can so do this.

Running Shoes

Here are the new running shoes.  They are cute and functional.  The best of both worlds.  Will need to get stuff to clean them, because I am sure they will get dirty fast.  But I am super excited to use them tomorrow.

Moving down

So I have lost about 2 inches around my waist and 1 inch around my hips. My weight didn't go down this week but it didn't go up so I am happy about that. I can now do 2 sets of 20 push ups in the girl (knees down) position and I am super stoked about that. I was only doing 5 when I started two weeks ago. I am up to doing an hour of the cardio/strength training. And I am seeing improvement all around. I am glad I have been pushing through it. Making it two weeks is a huge step for me. I am more determined now than I have ever been. Its a great feeling. And adding running will only keep me going when my six weeks are up. June 12th I get my new tattoo as my reward for finishing the next 6 weeks out. I can't wait. Its going to be amazing.


Monday will be the big day. I purchased my running shoes from Road Runner in Seattle. They were awesome and custom fit my inserts. So it feels a little funny but should make running not so painful. I am going to start out slow and build up. I need to set up my play list and off I will run :). Its going to be great and something that should be easy to stick with. You don't need a gym you can do it anywhere and most anytime. Although in the dark I would want reflective gear and probably a dog LOL. So I am also going to track my running on here.

Started slim in 6

I started slim in 6 last week April 26th. I have to say I feel great. I am only on the first video but if it is any indication I am going to love the other three. I love the stretching too. I did all 6 days go me and lost 2 pounds. I am going to try to post my weightloss widgett for your enjoyment :).
I am keeping a food log and have done very well at staying at or under my 1341 calories a day. Even with a couple trips out to eat. Portion sizes are getting smaller yeah. And I started the week doing 5 girl push ups and ended doing 10 girl push ups.

My next venture besides slim in 6...RUNNING.

I am going to do this.
