I’m starting to see some big changes in myself, and it is so exciting.. My clothes are getting so loose, and my body is starting to change.. 280.5 this morning.. I think this weekend will be when I get into the 270’s.

Had a great workout with Van today.. we did “Jackie’s Evil Twin”

50 thrusters,

30 modified pullups

750 row

After that, I walked on the treadmill @ 3.2 for 70 minutes and went to happy hour yoga later in the evening.. I burned approximately 899 calories today. It was a pretty good day!


Great workout today

10 minutes on the treadmill, 45 minute spin class, and the WOD:

Somebody that I used to know..

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough

Ridiculous people..

I can’t believe how ridiculous and immature people can be. Especially people ‘well advanced’ in their years. I also can’t believe how people would want others to fail, even as far as something like taking care of their health or losing weight. I’ve been upset or mad and wanted to cuss someone out, but I really hope the best for everyone around me. Though there has been times I felt like I ‘hated’ someone, I really don’t hate anyone..

Now, I have to be very careful about my time. I decided I won’t take any more lunch time, so that I’m not lied about at work. I just can’t believe it would come down to that.

I was SO happy this morning when I saw 281.5! 17.5 pounds lost since Jan 1. I feel fantastic. I’m so proud of how I’ve been able to not overeat or stress eat or eat out of boredom.

Tuesday, I went to a 90 minute yoga. It was amazing. I was able to “turn my dog” on my left side. Very exciting stuff! My calorie total was 1473.

Tonight, I went to spinning. I’m ending tonight’s calories at 1664.

Relaxing Weekend..

So I did hit 284 briefly.. but am up a pound to 285. Last Thursday, I did water aerobics, and on Friday, Sara and I met in the early morning  a workout with Van. We did our first Fran and Christine..  My times were Fran 5:45 and Christine: 13:39 (mostly step ups instead of straight box jumps.

Saturday and Sunday, I was very lazy. I was sick last week, and over the weekend, and I just was crampy and not feeling great. I didn’t have too much energy either, so I really took it easy.

I was so excited for today.. which was totally ruined.. I was very excited to start my swim class for triathlons today.. but it was ruined. My coworker was mad that I had left to go to the gym (????) and went to my supervisor to tell on me. She lied and told her I was gone for over 2.5 hours, but I wasn’t gone that long. So basically, I was told that we only really have 30 minutes for lunch. This puts a huge crimp in my workout plans. I normally go to the gym twice a week at lunch to get a spin class in or some extra cardio. So because of this.. I guess I can’t really work out at lunch.

What I think I WILL do is bring my stuff and at least jog or walk at lunch for 25 minutes. I’m bound and determined. I will NOT let someone make this so I can’t get my calorie burn in. I’ve got to try to get some exercise in in the morning too, but that is very difficult, because I have to feed the dogs/get Alex ready for the day. I will not let this ruin me or my plans or my hard work. I WILL SUCCEED.

January results

My final tally for January is……. 14.5 pounds down! 284.5.

I was SO happy and excited this morning. This 30 day challenge has just been awesome. I’ve been discovering so much about myself and my eating habits.. I can slowly see my relationship with food changing. Isn’t of just having a “fuckitall” attitude, and I’ll just start tomorrow, every single piece of food I put in my mouth, I’m thinking about it.

I really think that by cutting the sugar, my brain is able to actually THINK about things before I just stuff it into my mouth.. That is exactly how I’d react in the past.. It was like, Oh, there are cupcakes at the front desk, and all I would think about were those cupcakes sitting at the front desk. I’d feel compelled to just have one. Sometimes, I’d sit here and think, if I just wait 30 minutes they will be gone.. or think about how dirty some people are.. and sometimes that would help, but usually, I’d just have one because I “wanted it so bad”, and there is always tomorrow!

I am so thankful for the 30 day whole 9 group.. Its so encouraging to have all these people who are like minded and doing the same healthy activities and healthy eating..

Anyway, I am trying to remember to post my daily activity/weight and calorie intake, but I keep forgetting!
