Boy it felt good

to be back at the gym today!! It was actually busy today for a Saturday mid morning workout. I was there for almost an hour and did 35 mins on the treadmill at a 3.7mph pace and 10 mins fluctuating between 2.5 and 3.0mph. I also did 10 m ins for strength training.

I can't wait to get back tomorrow morning again!

This week sucks!

Thanks to AF! I refuse to weigh in this week and I have been having a HARD time staying out of the kitchen. I've been trying to fill my cravings with healthy foods (ie. fruits and veggies) but nothing sounds as good or would taste as good as a KING SIZE candy bar right now!! BUT kudos to me, I have not succumb to that craving yet and I do not plan on it. I am totally slacked off with the gym this week b/c I feel like total ass. My thoughts on this is, its one week. I am still watching what I eat and not gorging myself during meals. I can make it up next week.

This is my life, not a diet. I can do this! Its one day at a time....

2 months ago

I started the transformation to a new me. It started as a weight loss journey but shortly after starting, I realized that it's not a weight loss journey; its a lifestyle change! I welcomed these changes with portion control, staying under my calorie intake and also making the gym part of my daily routine.

Side note: I have NEVER been one to go to the gym!

I made it my goal everyday to really watch when I put into my body. I don't want to be the skinniest girl in the world. I want to be healthy. I want to feel good in and out of my clothes. I also make it a point to log into My Fitness Pal (MFP) to track my food everyday. It makes me accountable for what I'm putting into my body and how many calories I have to go so I can make healthy choices during the day.

This journey will not always be easy, as I have come to find out, but as long as I keep telling myself that this journey is a lifestyle change and its a slow and steady one, I think KNOW I can do it!

With that said, because today was a very exciting weigh in! I am officially 13lbs down!!

Not budging..

All week the scale has not moved AT ALL!

I really hope that by Friday its moved at least a little b/c Friday is my 2 month anniversary of this new lifestyle that I am embracing.

I've been really busy trying to get ready for DH to come home and I know its not an excuse but when the littles don't leave until 430 (or later) the gym hasn't been in my daily plans. I believe that's why the scale has stayed the same. 

I am making a point to go twice on Thursday (or at least for double the amount, if I only get there once) and Saturday and Sunday are a definite go. Its just frustrating to myself b/c I know I can do better but I haven't seen DH in a month and there are things around the house I want done before he gets home. gah! I should have taken this week off!!!

How are you doing?
