Workouts and such

Just had a great workout! I got in 3 miles in under 44 minutes! WOO for me!  I‘m ready to start running 3 x 1 its taken me awhile to get there I know….but we all have our own paces mine is slow and steady. I can do 30 seconds planks at night, NOT after a workout that just hurts!  I can bike 10 miles in 45 minutes with hills.  50 knee sit ups (I don’t know what they are called)  10 “real” pushups, 50 lunges in a day

I’m excited to say that my weights have increased 20 lbs at least per machine or barbell.  I know this may bulk me up but let’s just admit it I’m bulky and I like the fact that I can lift 50 lbs 18 times.

Still eating healthy and trying new healthy foods. I went two weeks without a hamburger or pizza or “bad” food, that is really good for me.  I normally eat some sort of sweet thing once a day, whether its  a yogurt, or a piece of brownie depends on the day but its normally pretty small.

I try not to think about my weight but when it won’t budge I know I need to do something.  And since I’ve been at 208 and the same if not higher measurements for two months now  I’m going to up the anty. So down to 1200/1400 calories a day for a week and see how I feel.  I normally eat between 1500-1800 so hopefully this will give my body the push it needs to get over the hump.  I’m also going to add an additional 20 minute cardio in the afternoon to see if that keeps my heart rate up some. Hopefully at the end of the week, I’ll be over the hump. I’m seriously going to be excited if I ever get under 200!

Hi, I'm a stay-at-home mom trying to find a healthier lifestyle that works for my family and me. It's not easy with two energetic toddlers, a hyper dog, a house that needs a lot of work, 12 cars (that's right I said 12) that all need work, a large home garden, lots of work/family travel and an Italian husband who likes to help everyone but himself, but we make it work. We need to make it work!

    Love your goals! I am on WW, so I count points for everything from wine to pizza. Life is too short without wine, pizza, oh, and bagels!

    So every Wednesday I have a jalapeno 8 point cheddar bagel for breakfast. I almost always have an 18 point pizza on Friday’s – and enjoy my glass of wine with dinner most nights. I’ve lost 10 pounds so far this year, and I don’t feel like I am depriving myself of anything. Before if I ate pizza I’d be like “well, I may as well eat like shit the rest of the weekend and get back “on” on Monday.”

    Hang in there! 😀
