Week 3 - Motivational Monday!

Since my last post I have come to realize the motivation that I was lacking will just have to come back full force. It's time to GO BIG..or go home! Im GOING BIG! I took the first step today to get my motivation back and made it to the gym this morning by 7am! Go me! I am also heading back for another round at the gym today after the littles leave.

So as you may (or may not) notice, I did weigh in today..almost forgot! So I weighed in after breakfast this morning and about 3 hours later then normal. (shame! shame!) So I'm not sure how accurate this weigh in will be but it is a  -.4lbs so I'm happy with it either way. I am determined to do more then a .something next Monday!

The plan of attack for this week is:

Monday - Gym (7a) & (430p)
Tuesday - gym (7a)
Wednesday - Gym (430p)
Thursday - Gym (7a) & (430p)
Friday - Gym (430p)
Saturday - Gym
Sunday - Rest Day

Motivation...Where are you?

I am losing motivation. I'm losing the drive I had to get to the gym. I'm still eating semi good but there are days where I feel like I can't get full or even content enough after a meal.

I hate feeling like this. It makes me feel HORRIBLE. I just hope that motivation will come back to me SOON!!!

Week One: Done.

Yes, that's a 2.9 lb gain. Why? I would like to thank AF for being here with a vengeance. I am so bloated and it sucks. With the way that AF is; there is NO way I can get to the gym until she is gone. Let's hope that this month she doesn't want to stay long! :(

I hate this!

Day 1: Over and Out!

How did you do today on the first day of the Get Fit Coast to Coast Challenge?

Here's what my day looked like:
Breakfast -
1c multigrain cheerios
1/2c strawberries

Morning Snack-
Mozzarella Cheese Stick
Low fat S'mores granola bar

Lunch -
1 1/4c Asian Salad
1oz Veggie Straws

Dinner - 
1 1/4c Asian Salad
Peanut Butter and Tortilla roll up

Total Calories: 1204

I also made it to the gym today, even though it wasn't a planned gym day. BONUS! I did a 30 min cardio session. 15 mins on the treadmill fluctuation between 3.5 and 4.0mph and 15 mins on the elliptical. According to MFP if I would eat like today everyday I would lose 15 lbs in 5 weeks. Lets see how accurate it is!

Good Luck Everyone! Here's to tomorrow!!

Check in

So far so good. Only 5 days into April and I am heading in the right direction. I have made it to the gym 2 days so far. (my goal is 16 days total) and the challenge starts Monday, which I am ECSTATIC for! Dont forget it check it out..hurry and sign up! Get Fit Coast to Coast

I actually made it to the gym THIS morning by 730am! I was so proud of myself. I think its going to become a routine for me on days that the littles come later. I know I won't be able to make it on the days they are early because getting to the gym by 6am and then chasing a 17 month old around and a 3 year old around all day long isn't going to be a good combination for my patience that day! LOL I know that may sound like I'm setting myself up for failure already but its just being realistic. The littles  need my patience to be at 110%!
