I’m considering this a start over. I fell off the wagon and got ran over. So here is day one. Again.
I’m really disappointed in myself. I was getting to the point where running 2 miles was getting easy for me. If I went out right now, a mile would be tough.
My gym went out of business, it’s been cold out, I’ve been busy with school and work, and even if I’m not at school or work, I’m exhausted. But those are all excuses.
This time is going to be slightly different. I was focusing on running. I love running, in a love-hate kind of way. However, I want to join the YMCA. If, for some reason, you don’t know what that is, it’s like a gym/pool/sport center. There are a lot of activities to do there. From the website, I will have access to:
So here is what my new plan is going to be.
I was weighing in once a month so that I didn’t become obsessed with the scale, but I will be starting to weigh in every Monday morning, starting today.
My official first weigh in: 202.0 lbs
So then I’m switching it up and staying active throughout the week. Let me know what you think of this… it sounds grand to me.
Anyone else a SUPER big supporter of shaycarl/shaytards? I am, have been for a while, and this makes me even more. Seriously, watch it! Fitblrs/Runners/ and People who want to lose weight. He lost over 100lbs, ran 2 marathons and ran 1 half marathon.
Goal: Jog 3 miles on the treadmill by the end of September.
Goal: Get into the 180’s by the October 1st weigh in
Goal: Workout 5 times a week
I actually started college and got a job so these goals might be a little harder to reach. One step at a time!
I also initiated my new “diet”. It is a 2% raw diet. That’s sarcastic, but it’s really loose usage of “raw”. Fruits, vegetables, wheat bread, chicken and turkey (not lunch meat, the ones I have to cook myself ha), brown rice, whole wheat pasta, nuts, water, 100% pure juice - Naked Juice, Skim milk, some cereal (Cheerios, life…the better choices of cereal) CHEATS: cheese (little amounts), sauces/condiments.
As you can see, it really can’t be counted as “raw”. I will be allowing myself one free day, Saturday, because that’s the day I’m with my dad or out with friends. This isn’t a day to go crazy, but allow myself any dinner I’d like and probably a dessert.
Ahh I fell off the wagon for about 2 weeks this month. It’s the summer and It was my birthday (Cake :(. Not to mention, I got a car, so I’ve been doing a whole lot of crap. I’ve been eating junk and not working out. I feel as big as when I started. Two days ago, I jogged .5 miles. I felt horrible and I accidently brought the bad head phones that shock my ears! Today, however, I jogged a little over a mile. I’m going to get up to 1.5 miles again this week and then 2 miles next week. I dropped my phone on the treadmill today, and then almost fell off when I tried picking it up… haha I’m sure it was quite the sight. Anyway, I’m still here, and I’m still dedicated as of now!
So I have been working out. Trying to keep with my schedule, but it’s been SOOOO hot where I live, like 95 degrees +, so it’s hard to jog outside. I’ve been trying to make it to the gym, but I don’t drive yet, so I have to find rides. Luckily I can drive in 12 days! WOOO. WORK OUT ALL OF THE TIME! Here’s my calendar to keep track of everything, the circles are completed work outs. Top is June, bottom is July!
I’m not going to be posting everyday like I was.
I will be getting on here and reblogging things and I will post when something significant happens.
I’m sad to say that I have fallen off of the health kick for this past month. HOWEVER, It is all beginning now again. I am going to start waking up and jogging every morning. I would like to run my own 5ks twice a month because I think it will help me work up since I’ve only been jogging about the same lengths recently. I need to push myself a little harder. I also want to start biking, that would be fun. I’m trying to save my joints a little. And, I want to attend some classes at my gym. Healthy eating! I’m going to try to make an all HEALTHY recipe book full of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack recipes/ideas. I will try them first, and if I like them I will throw them in a sheet protector and then into a binder. So, if you have any good healthy recipes, send them my way!
197.2 lbs. YAY I lost .2
I’m not even mad, I probably worked out 13 days this month and I ate tons of ice cream since it’s coming of summer.
I’m back on track baby!
Jogged a mile today in 11:40 which is faster than normal for me. Time to get serious again. I am going to Seattle on Monday to see my uncle who is big into health and I’m really excited. I think he and I are a lot alike. Yay for healthiness and getting back on track.
Saw a friend that I havent really seen in a year, and after talking about prom and whatnot, she said
"You are really skinny now…"
and I was like
"Oh really? I’ve been running!"
and that’s it. I don’t know why she said I was really skinny, because I am definitely still over weight, but it’s nice to know that people are noticing the difference!
O.o, wow, that pretty much did a sneak attack.
BUT, I just wanted to say that I’m running/walking my first 5k tomorrow! I’m going to try to jog at least 2 miles of it, and then maybe I will have to walk some, but I want to finish jogging. I have about a week until my next weigh in so… AND I was going to eat really healthy today so I’m light for the race, but I ate SO BAD today, so lets hope it doesnt effect me too bad.
This girl. Until June 1st. I really need to exercise and focus on my diet. The point of this is to cut out the fatty foods and eat way more fruits and vegetables. I NEED TO FOCUS. I need to stop with these endless splurges and what not. I’m going to gain all of my weight back. So here it goes, seriousness.
I never go to school dances or anything, I am not really that girly (on the outside :) at all so I never get nice dresses or anything. However, I do want to go to prom and I would have to get a beautiful dress and what not. But, prom is at the end of May, that’s almost 2 whole months. I could be down 20lbs by then! The dress won’t fit anymore, and If I wait to get them, they will all be sold out. What should I do?
Woo, yippeee. Oh well, these next 2 months will be brutal!
