Day 6 (Saturday)

New Year's Eve!!  I can't believe 2011 is coming to an end.  Many wonderful things happened this year the best of which was the birth of our third child.

Today I did not work out.  I was going to ride my bike but just didn't make time for it.  I did get a lot of errands run which was good and the ingredients for the protein bars I am going to make tomorrow.  I will let you know how that goes haha.  Eating went really well today.

Day 5 (Friday)

So today, Saturday and Sunday are "rest" days according to my program.  However :) being that I love riding my bike and swimming I am taking the opportunity to get some time on the bike and in the pool.
I was off early today so I went for an hour to swim laps.  Managed to do 40 laps which is 2000 yards.  That is about 1.14 miles :).  I am so proud of myself and it felt great.
Eating went good today.  Or at least is getting better.  I did have 4 pieces of the delite pizza but I burned those calories just swimming :).
Tomorrow I am going to try to get a bike ride in outside but might have to settle for the trainer and two or three episodes of Naruto, haha.

Day 4

Shoulders/Abs was a good workout.  Man my muscles are sore :).
Ate fairly well.  Egg whites for breakfast, cream of wheat.  A luna bar and carrots for a snack.  Half a tuna sandwich for lunch and home made chicken pot pie for dinner.  My water was low today.  Need to keep that up.  All in all a great final strength workout for the week.

Day 3

Did legs today.  I think in some ways I could have done more but while I was there it felt like I was working really hard.  So I really don't know.  It was a good day and I did my workout.  I did good at breakfast and dinner but lunch was kind of a mess.  The turkey was dry :(.  I will just keep chugging along and get this figured out eventually.  Scale at home says 181.4 and the scale at work says 178.5.  I think I like the one at work better :).

Day 2

Did back and biceps today at lunch, empty weight room so I was done in about 45 min.  I did ride my bike for 25 mins.
My food was way off because my salad went bad and I didn't get my carb for breakfast.  I am very proud of myself though.  While at Fred Meyer for my oldest to get an eye exam i was so hungry.  I bought a Luna bar instead of junk.  Then going out to dinner was so tempting, ugh I was so hungry.  But i came home, baked some chicken and roasted some asparagus.  I am so proud of myself.

Day 1

Today was day 1 of the livefit.  I know I keep bouncing around but I think I found a good one this time.  I did Chest and tri's today.  Just a 5 min bike cardio to get warmed up.  It for sure helped my mood :).  I was all cranky when I started.  Tomorrow is back and bi's :).  At really good.  Had eggs, spinach and mushrooms for breakfast.  Had salad with chicken for lunch, a protein shake after the workout, and flank steak with broccoli and salad for dinner.  All in all a good day.  I just have to remember the junk food isn't worth it!

Saturday and Sunday

Well Sunday being Christmas and Saturday being Christmas eve I took the two days off.  Tomorrow (Monday) I start the livefit program from bodybuilding.com.  I am excited and nervous if it will work for me.  I opened a pinterest account and am loving the inspiration that I have found so far.  I will post an inspiration quote at the end of my workouts to help remind me to stick to it.

2011 The last fat year of my life, that is a fact and a promise :).

Dec 23 Friday

So today had two donuts, a luna bar, some left over chinese, olive garden salad, and some iced tea.  Yep not the best eating but it could have been worse :).

Swam 26 laps (1300 yards) for a total of 45 mins.
Did Biceps, triceps, chest press, shoulder press, abs, rear delts today.  Same as Monday.

Feeling pretty good with my work out.  Nice since Wednesday really threw me out of whack.

Wednesday Dec 21

Ok so today was probably the worst day in recent weeks :(.
Ate out for all three meals and the work out at the navy base sucked.  They didn't have all the machines we needed so we ended up coming home.  And right now when I could be on my bike I am working :(.  Soooo tomorrow I need to hit it hard.  Today is a wash, on to tomorrow....

New progress picture

December 16, 2011!

Making progress

The scale is moving down.  Down to 182.3 this week.  I feel that I look different too.  We are going to take progress pictures this weekend.  I will post them when I get them uploaded.  I will do measurements and pictures.  Next Monday I am starting on a new weightlifting routine to hopefully give me a little extra ompf.  I got it from bodybuilding.com.  Those women are amazing.  I am hopeful that I can see some great results without supplementing with whey protein.  But I might have to as I get closer to the double century.  I hope to sit down with Chris and come up with a great game plan for the next month.  New Year coming with a new me.  Can't wait to see where I am at this time next year.  It should be amazing.

Thinking I am going to try crossfit for two weeks. I have heard good things and I can try it free at work. The plan right now is to crossfit M, W, F and run T, Th, Sat during lunch/work. Then swim Tuesday and Thursday. Bike on Monday, Wednesday and either Friday or Saturday depending on when I can get a long ride in. I have a plan B if crossfit isn't for me.
Light bulb moment:
I don't want to feel this way anymore. I want to be a healthy, happy mom and wife!!
I need to change me now!
When sad just get up and go work out. No excuses!

November 28-Dec 2

So here is a much overdue update.  Working out is going good.  Swam twice this week.  Tuesday for 25-30 mins did 18 laps, Thursday for 30 mins did only 12 laps.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I walked on the treadmill in my vibram five fingers.  Loved them.  Even tried a little jogging/running.  Friday I rode my bike outside with Chris for 1 hour 20 mins did about 12 miles give or take.  Maybe 12.5 my phone died at some point LOL.  According to my last update on facebook through my mapmyride app we had done 12.43 miles so I am guessing total was 12.5.  Hope to get some strength training in this weekend.  Maybe another swim and for sure a walk.  I am working hard for every pound lost.  Speaking of which.  I am down to 186 woot :).  Only 21 pounds to go for my Coast Guard max allowable and 56 for my big goal.  I hope to get to 130.  Eating is going great.  When I do eat something that is in the no no zone I have stopped beating myself up.  I just enjoy it and move on.  I eat as well as I can and don't worry about the rest.  Lost .5 inches around my waist in all three areas.  Feeling good.
