Fit Check 4/3/18

Standard

Well this week was a hectic week…between the kids, my job, and life in general…I did not get much done this week. But I did get some exercising done. Not as much as I would have liked to but I did. Unfortunately, my gazelle broke and I have to go back to my original exercises from way back when. Might be a good thing…it might actually kick start my body to start burning again. I guess we will have to see.

Fit Challenge Week 22

Standard

Hi all!! It’s been a great week!! I have been doing all my usual things exercising and actually eating the way I am supposed to and it shows. I have lost 2 pounds!! I know it might be a bit of a small victory considering I already was here a month ago but I made it back and now all I need to do is go further. It will happen I know 🙂

On to another subject…I am actually influencing my hubby too!!! Last week he actually go up and started exercising with me. It was great!! We has a lot of fun together doing it. Not only am I going to start feeling better but my hubby is going to be there with me. It’s an amazing feeling to see him there trying to stay healthy with me.

One other thing I know I promised you I would show you my new workout tops this week once I put them on. So here is the one I wore this week

Fit Challenge Week 21…things that make you go hmmm…

Standard

Well with a busy week that I have been having, I slipped up. I went back to my old staple bread not because I didn’t have anything but just because it was easier. I have to break this habit. If I can break this habit I will be in a better place. I know what I have to do but I just have to remind myself everyday what I have to do. I also did eat more than I should as well. It is so easy to fall back into old ways.  I did gain  a couple of pounds back but to be honest I really do not know if it is that or due to swelling. I have been drinking plenty of water(96 ounces a day)and I have been exercising (between my Gazelle and Yoga)The weight gain could be due to that but I am not going to hold my breath. I am not going to beat myself up about it but I am going to really concentrate on the bread eating and portioning my food out each meal. If I can get that under control I will be able to get it all there.

On the flip side, I went out to buy some new exercise clothes because the ones I had have started to wear out. So I went to our favorite store in the world (sarcasm) and they had some Danskin tops on sale (always love a great sale). I bought me two tanks and one t-shirt…all under $10!! The thing that is better than that…I was able to get them in a MEDIUM!!!! 😀  It looks like I am doing something right despite of my slips this week. I’ll post pics next week once I start wearing them.

Getting back on the wagon

Standard

OK might not be the best time to say I am getting back on the wagon and continuing my journey to fitness considering we are going on a vacation next week. :O  But you know what….I have to put myself back on the right path sometime because there will always be something that comes up. Whether it be a trip, a get together, a night out, hanging out with the kids…etc. There will always be something no matter what you do. How you deal with it the day after is what matters. Does that mean after you have your fun that you are supposed to feel guilty afterwards and then go to extremes to say that you are making up for what you did? No! What it means is that you acknowledge the fact you made some not so wise choices and move on. It means you know that what you did was not good for you and that not necessarily won’t do it again but will be more attuned to what you are doing and might not do it exactly the same way.

So here we are starting almost at the beginning again. I have lost weight but no where near as much as I would like to. I will do it…here’s my stats to start all over again.

Fit Challenge week 1:

Height: 5′ 7″

Age: 38

Weight : 181.5

My bust: 38 in

My waist: 32 in

My Hips: 38 in

 

Along with the final goal above I am going to hold myself a little more accountable. I am going to set myself smaller goals during this time. This is to help me keep focused not only on the larger goal but to help me stay on track. This is where my Monthly check in will happen:

Goal weight by July 28, 2016:  176

 

As I said above, I am going on vacation next week…I might not be able to post my weekly check in but I will definitely be keeping up with everything. My next post will be in 2 weeks. Maybe I’ll have something good to show 🙂
