Holy cow…what a rain delay!

So I have been working out all summer….honest, even though I have not been posting about it here.
I have lost about 10 pounds give or take, and feel a bit stronger. I have however been away from the gym for 14 days on vacation…..wow talk about to much!

To much salt
To much carbs
To much alcohol

I am bloat city right now, I can see it in my face and belly…..
I refuse to even get near the scale for at least 2 weeks, it would just bum me out. I know that I probably have minimal fat gain, mostly water so what good would stepping on doom do for me. Just gonna get back in the gym and sweat!

Today is weigh in day, and I am weighing in the same as last week…..149. It could be worse considering I have not really gotten much exercise since last wednesday.

I have been stressed, and not feeling or sleeping well. hopefully I can pull it all back together soon.

I did not lose any weight this week, but thats ok….I worked really hard anyway!

Did lots of cardio, and some weights too. I am feeling pretty good, and am just chugging along. Hope to pick back up on the blogging more soon!

Down 2 more pounds coming in at 149!

I hit the gym this morning and pushed out 45 minutes of cardio. Yesterday I did 35 minutes and then upper body strength, and man are my arms and chest sore!

I am feeling pretty good and am happy that I am finally losing some weight for my team, Go Team Coral!

 

Gym all to myself! July 6, 2009

I had the gym all to myself for most of my 45 minutes ARC trainer session….that  was great!

We had a great 4th of July weekend! We got together with friends on Friday to go to the Festa del Formaggio here in my little village. I ate pretty healthy, all but for the frico…..its a slab of delicious fried cheese, but hey its a delicacy here!!

I split one with the husband, so thats not too bad!
The next night we got together with some more friends for the 4th of July celebration at the base. We had a great time and enjoyed the fireworks.

Today I got my workout in, and am feeling pretty great about it. I took the week off for my cycle. It is so heavy and painful….it just makes almost everything unmanageable!

I am back at it this week!

 

Weigh in day! July 1, 2009

Down another pound woohoo, weighing in at 151!

I think this is pretty good considering all the eating I did this weekend, but I also have been putting in more cardio this week than I have in the past.
I did 45 on the arc trainer yesterday, and it felt great! We also have been continuing to eat better and integrate healthier choices into our diets.
So I am feeling pretty good about finally bringing in some numbers for me team. Go Team Coral!

 

A good weekend June 29, 2009

I had a pretty good weekend. Did some partying with friends and some exercising too!

Friday Odessa finally had her spay surgery, and it went well. She was bouncing all over the house by saturday afternoon like her belly had not just been sliced open 24 hours before (EEK).
I woke up on Saturday morning in the mood to exercise, so I went to the gym and pushed out 30 minutes of cardio to the beats of Michael Jackson on my ipod…..Felt great!
We had party plans that night with friends and had a great time. I did not eat too poorly and drank many mojitos. Which in my defense are on the list of Mens Health Healthiest cocktails to order!
We make them fresh too, with our own mint from my newly monkered mojito tree!
We had a great time, and got home super late.

We did not sleep in to much the next day, but it was raining so our hiking plans were again put on hold. It rains every weekend here 😦

My husband got me a cool new gift though…..a shiny new four burner gas grill with a side burner and rotisserie set up!
He knows how much I love my rotisserie chickens!

I told him it would be easier for me to cook up healthy meats if I had a grill to grill on! He is a charcoal griller 100% and we will still eat meat he grills, the old fashioned way. I on the other hand have no clue how to charcoal grill, and I am a little afraid of it…so I am happy with my click it on and grill it way of doing things! I’m getting a pink grilling apron:)

I went to the gym this morning and had a pretty good workout. I bumped my time up to 35 minutes of cardio and I honestly could have gone longer but I forgot my ipod 😦
Next time I am pushing for 40!!!

Hope everyone has a healthy happy week!
