How Low Can You Go

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

>> Wednesday, March 4, 2015

   I don't know what came over me these last few days, I just didn't care anymore. As a result this weeks weigh in was 4.4 pounds more than last week. How does that even happen??? Oh well there is no use crying over spilt milk. I just have to pick myself up and continue from where I was. I went back to the gym today and I am really trying to get these 4 liters of water in. Next week is one month and although I was dreaming of a 10 pound, I will settle for 5.

700 Post!

>> Friday, February 27, 2015

   Post number 700! Thank you reading. Today is a detox day. Went to a game night last night and had a few too many drinks and snacks. That is ok, because I still gotta live right? So today, first thing I did was hit the gym and sauna. I am drinking 4 L of water and juicing for the day. Juicing trying to purge my system. I made a yummy juice yesterday: 


1 beet
3 carrots
3 stalks of celery
1 inch of ginger 

Refreshing and it gave me a little boost of energy.

Have a great weekend!

Short And Sweet

>> Wednesday, February 25, 2015


     This came up on Instagram while I washing in my bed after work taking a little rest.  I quickly reposted it and forced myself to go to the gym.   I did 30 minutes of cardio and a little bit of weights, I am so exhausted today that I am actually surprised that I got out of the bed at all, a half assed workout is better than none at all right?

Down

>> Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Today was my weekly weigh in and I down 0.8. Since I had a wicked weigh in last week I am down 3.8 pounds. I am on my 2 pound per week schedule. 

   I am going to get back on the juicing train this week. My old juicer died (rip) so I am going to buy a new one tomorrow. I am going to try and juice for one week and see how that goes. My absolute favorite juice is pineapple, lemon and ginger. Yummmmmmm! 

Here I am at the gym about to kill some dead lifts. I love working legs. Have a great week!

Not Giving Up

>> Monday, February 23, 2015

   I have been in a foul mood lately, I don't know why. I am tired and don't really want to talk to anyone. Although I would love to lie in my bed and rest, I got up and went to the gym.


   Legs are starting I look a bit slimmer but that midsection, oh lort. Glad for those breasts to balance me out. Maybe I need to look into a waist trainer...

Back at It (Again)

>> Sunday, February 22, 2015

  What is that saying? Fall down seven times, get up eight? Well I am back at it again. My old scale was fluctuating so much that I decided to buy a new one and I was right, the old scale was 10 pounds off! Yikes!


I am back on a serious regime, working out an hour a day during the week and more on the weekends (I don't have time for more than that). Plus, I tend to stick with it more if I know that I only have to be at the gym for a short amount if time. 

My short term goal is to drop 25 pounds (10% of my weight) and my long term goal is to drop 40 pounds by August. Trying to get back to 212, what I weighed on my 30th birthday. It is not impossible but it is going to take time and determination. I am drinking more water, but I can still do better. I am eating more fish and less crap. 

Last week was week 1 and I dropped 3 pounds. I am aiming for 1 pound this week, so that I can stay on a 2 pound per week loss. I also read that one should drink half their weight in oz of water. That translates to me drinking 4 liters of water a day. I can say that I drink 2 L so I am going to try and drink more.

Wish me luck.  I will try and update a little more often. 

Take care.

Tracking Myself

>> Wednesday, June 25, 2014

     Yesterday's workout went well. One hour cardio; 30 minutes treadmill on an incline and 30 minutes elliptical. Then I did 1 hour weights, I tackled every body part, I am a little sore today but not too bad.

     After the gym I went to the pool for a bit, came home and made a carrot soup.

    Today I constructed this little chart:

     If I do my workout I get a red music note, consume 3 liters of water a green one and eat healthy ( fruits, veg, protein, no more than two servings of starches and one small sweet a day) I get an orange note.
    This only goes up to July 12 because I leave for Greece on the 11th.

    Don't ask what the reward will be( or if there will even be one). I haven't figured that out yet. 

     Thanks for reading!
