Finally did it!

I'm below 160 for the first time in years.  It's a great thing.  Although slowed way down due to lack of motivation but who doesn't have that problem from time to time.  I'm just thrilled that I am making good choices and not gaining weight like crazy.  Still losing in fact.  So much going on around here and not much time to journal or blog.  I hope that after my two weeks of drill life can find a rhythm but I doubt that.  I'm constantly searching for a balance and rhythm without much luck.

not gaining, not losing

The 21 day fix really did mess me up and I lost some motivation.  I am trying to get back to it.  I won't let my weightloss be derailed this easy.  However I am down with a fever tonight so no workout...
If I can get a workout in tomorrow, Friday and Saturday I will be happy with that.  I will reach my goals.  I'm thankful I haven't started putting weight back on.

So the 21 day fix was not for me.  I have returned the box an videos.  I was in so much pain I couldn't move.  I can't be on a program that makes me that sore.  So I took a few days to recover.  I was under the weather yesterday but I'm fully planning to run today.  I'm looking forward to getting moving.  I really didn't like taking all that time off but needed it to get better.  I can feel my depression worsening and I am sure it's connected to the lack of working out the last 5 days or so.  I dislike that I am this bad, and the weather isn't helping me either.  I'm glad I sent the videos back and am looking forward to getting back on track.

Day 2 of 21 day fix. Week 6?

Honestly I'm not sure what week I'm in.  But it's habit at this point for sure.  If I don't workout I miss it.  I started working out in the mornings with the 21 day fix so I could still run... but as yesterday proved I don't have the eating or strength to run and do the 21 day fix :(.  So I guess I'm on a small break and will start again in 19 days :).  I've gotten my calories up a little bit but not great.  I've been on such a bad roller coaster I'm struggling to rein it in.  My weight seems stuck, and my waist measurements seem stuck... but my pants and belt suggest otherwise.  So I'm thinking I'm losing weight or inches and I'm just not finding it.  At least I'm going to keep moving, and keep losing.  This is for the long term not a quick fix.

Going strong

Going to start the 21 day fix on Monday.  I ran on the treadmill for week 2 of the train like a mother training plan.  So I walked 4 mins and ran 2 mins on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Still debating on what to do tonight.  I'm supposed to run but running two days in a row is difficult for my shins.  I'm still moving down in the weight area and my clothes keep getting looser.  Today is a break from all food restrictions and I'm just enjoying movies and treats with my kids.  I am finding that I don't actually want most of the junk I got for them though.  A few cheetos puffs and a few mini milky ways.  I did indulge in pizza and soda :).  Balance right.  I also struggled to get my 10,000 steps on Tuesday and Thursday but I still lost a pound this week.  I'm glad I'm staying on track this time which is good and feeling great.

New treadmill

Got to do my first run/walk on my new treadmill tonight.  It was awesome and I'm so thrilled to be back to it again.  I really missed running.  I also did the one mile walk away the pounds with the kids.  We are signing up for the Hamilton 5k on June 4th.  I'm super excited about that challenge as well.  My 21 day fix kit shipped... So really I'm going to be in great shape to get in shape.  I need to come up with a meal plan for next week so I can get my grocery shopping done this weekend.  I'm so confident that I will reach my goals this time it's scary.  I picked this picture today because I feel like this is the phase I've come to.  It's an addiction now and I want to keep getting more results.

First goal achieved

I reached my first goal of making weight (165) by May 14th for my Coast Guard stuff.  I'm super proud of myself.  I really feel like I've turned a corner.  I have confidence that I am going to reach my bigger goals this time.  I'm going to get healthy and fit.  I am excited, energetic, and ready.  My pants are getting looser.  I ran on the treadmill at the hotel this weekend.  It's a first for actually getting my workout in during a drill weekend.  I'm proud of myself for doing it.  Normally I beg off and just skip it.  But it's great to be moving.  It's been 4 weeks and I feel better and am still moving.  Which is great.  My next goal is to be at 155 by my two weeks which is June 27th.
