So I just figured out that I’ve already lost 18% of my starting body weight! My goal is to lose about 44% total. 18%!! That’s huge!
no one ever lets me give them a piggyback ride
they’re just like “i might break you”
no you foolish mortal
i have the strength of a thousand horses
please, place yourself upon my back
Jordan lets me give him piggy back rides and also carry him like a baby. Even though he weighs like 215 pounds. And guess what, I can. So shut up 130 pound teammate, I CAN TAKE IT.
Haha this! I carried my 230 lb guy friend around piggyback. And I’m 5’2”! Imma beast!
A little while ago I mentioned that I miss dancing. I told myself that if I lost 50 pounds and felt confident enough then I would start classes again.
I’m am ecstatic to say that I rejoined dance classes today and it felt incredible.
This is awesome
This is SO great!! This makes me happy!
This has been a roller coaster of a shark week, I tell ya. I was exhausted Tuesday, varied between happy and depressed yesterday, and today I’m turned on, for no apparent reason. Holy cow.
So I’ve been out of commission for about two weeks, I got a bad cold, which didn’t let up for about a week and a half, then I housesat this past Memorial Day weekend for 3 houses, which was ridiculously insane. And shark week just started. Woot.
But starting tomorrow, I’m back to tracking my food. And starting Monday, I’m back to working out and tracking. I’m going to try to work out a few times this week, but I’m pretty exhausted and I have plans I can’t move.
I realized I definitely wasn’t eating enough, my intake(according to livestrong) was around 900-1000 a day. NOT enough. I’d read a lot about how our bodies need more than that just to be healthy, but I trusted livestrong and thought that because my job is so sedentary, it was all right. NOT SO! I’m 100% positive it’s why I got sick, and also why it held on for so long. While I was sick, I had like NO appetite, but I tried to eat really well, and as much as I could. Lots of soup and juice and stuff. I’ll be starting tracking again with my net at 1250 cals. Also, I’m going to change up my workout routine so it’s not so intense. I was doing 1-2 hours of zumba/cardio and random strength training 4+ times a week, and along with not getting enough calories, it sapped my strength. I need more method to my madness! :)
I got on the scale this morning out of curiosity and it said 190 lbs. Obviously it’s not going to be accurate with shark week and all, so I’m not worried one bit. Plus, I just bought some size 14 jeans and they fit just great still, and I feel smaller, not bigger, so we’ll see. I’m still hoping to get to my next GW by the end of August, but we’ll see.
My workout plan will now be:
Monday - Arms/Core/Short Cardio
Tuesday - 2 mile run(C25K)
Wednesday - Legs/Core/Short Cardio
Thursday - 2 mile run(C25K)
Friday - Misc. (AKA if something is not sore, make it sore lol) or 2 mile run(C25K)
Saturday - 2 mile run(C25K) if not done Friday, or Zumba/Hike/Etc.
Sunday - Rest
If I stay consistant with this, I feel like it will be better for my body. I had no consistant plan for strength training before, and I wanna build more muscle. Also, I wanna be able to run longer, better, faster, etc. and running is such a great overall workout, and with the great summer weather I’ll WANT to be outside.
HERE WE GO!!!
Aww thank you!! Sometimes I can’t believe that I’ve come as far as I have! :) Thank you for the encouragement!
I was totally going to do Zumba tonight. So I ate like I was going to do Zumba tonight. (An extra 792 calories.) Then an emergency came up, and I missed the class.
The emergency was important. But I still hate that I missed the class. And thereby went over my calories by about 66%.
On the plus side, I did pick up more protein today. A bunch of steaks, a ton of seafood, and beef jerky.
I hate when this happens! :( I’ve had this happen a few times, and it’s always so frustrating. Mostly I hate that anything gets in the way of a good workout!
