Day 4 - #plankaday  ONE MINUTE MARK REACHED!!

Fit and Fabulous Friday!

So I couldn't make it to the gym today. Whatever I did yesterday really messed up my ankle. It hurts! But I did start the #plankaday challenge. Anyone want to join??? Make sure you're following me on! Today was day 2 and I'm not doing to bad, IMO.

Day 1: 
Not to bad for a beginning start to a plank. I tried REALLY hard to push for a whole minute but I just couldn't do it. And it didn't help that the dog was trying so hard to get underneath just to lick my face. LOL (Gotta love furbabies) 


Day 2:

Added 1.8 seconds today. It's a slow and steady increase!! :) 

So how is everyone doing so far this week? Ready for the weekend? Just remember to even though its the weekend, its not a time to take "time off". I won't lie; weekends are the hardest for me but I make sure I'm conscious of what I'm doing on the weekends. Any big plans? This weekend is going to be really hard for me though because we are starting to get into county fairs and festival times. I'm going to make sure that I have healthy snacks in my purse to avoid the greasy, fried "bad for you stuff". 

Have a good weekend!! Something to remember this weekend!!

Weigh in Wednesday and mini challenge

Today was the first time that I've stepped on a scale in 68 days. I knew and was fully prepared for a HUGE gain. To much surprise it was only a 9.9 lb which averages about a 0.14 lbs a day. I don't think that's too bad considering it's been 68 days. Now I know what where I need to start and what needs to be done to get back to were I was. Within the last 68 days I have watched what I've ate during the day but I've also enduldged in ice cream and had some grownup beverages and with the enduldges I knew there would be a gain. I'm actually not that upset about this gain because it could have been a lot more of a gain... Which is really what I expected.

Pic will be added later since I'm on my tablet now.

I made it to the gym today. A little later than I wanted but I made it and I did 4 miles in 22 minutes on the stationary bike. Not a bad time for just getting back into the swing of things. Tomorrow its time to hit a weights in the morning.

Here is a mini challenge for you. Are you ready?
Eat a piece of fruit with every meal. Most people don't think about having fruit with meals except breakfast.. try it today with breakfast, lunch, and dinner! If your really wanting a challenge have a piece with your snacks too. Good luck and don't forget to check in to tell me how your doing with the challenge!

Tone it Up Tuesday!

So today's schedule was to hit up the weights at the gym. Last minute there was a schedule change and so today was used as my rest day instead of Friday. No worries. Just a slight bump in this week's schedule.

Tomorrow it's back to hitting the gym for some cardio.

How is everyone doing with goals so far this week??

Motivational Monday

Got to the gym this morning by 610! Go me! It felt amazing getting back into the gym and working out. Go big or go home was my motto today. I jumped right back into the swing of things with 30 mins on the elliptical. Just making it back to the gym has given me so much energy today. I forgot how good it feels during the day and how productive I am after getting to the gym in the morning. 

Today's good eats include: 
Breakfast - protein bar
Lunch - ham wrap and cauliflower
Dinner - homemade chicken fried rice
Snack - celery and pb spread and plum
With my beverage of choice only being water today.

I won't do my first official weigh in until Wednesday. I used to weigh in everyday but the fluctuation of the scale was more frustrating that helpful for myself. When do you weigh in? Daily? Weekly? When it crosses your mind?

Tomorrow is weight training at the gym! What is your personal goal for this week?
My Goal: Stick with the schedule and remember it didn't come on over won't come off over night!

Good Luck this week!!

Word Press Anyone?

Thinking of making a wordpress blog too. Anyone have any experience with it?

Hello World!

Wow! It's been FOREVER!

I can't say I fell off the wagon totally. I have been so busy with life that being at the gym and updating this blog has become almost non-existent. I feel horrible! I have come to realize that I need to start back. I felt so much better during the day when I was blogging and working out in the morning. I am still watching what I'm eating and also my calorie intake. I can't say I haven't had cheat meals/days but I feel that they are okay as long as you don't take it overboard. If you give up EVERYTHING you will never succeed. (in my opinion!!!!)  

So jumping back on the wagon and going full speed ahead. I can't change what has been done but I can only look towards the future. I want to be able to give myself a healthy lifestyle change forever..not just when it's convenient.

I have recently applied to become a FitFluential Ambassador in hopes that I can be motivation for someone else who is just starting out in a new lifestyle change of their own. I want to be able to show others through my blog, twitter and pinterest how this isn't a diet it's a lifestyle. So keep your fingers crossed that I am accepted!!! XX

How is everyone else doing?? Let me know and I'll be back in a few to comment on your updates! :)
