My Thoughts and Motivation

getting healthy the right way

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!

Wow!
I really, really did not want to step on the scale today….I just felt heavy and I knew it would not be good. Well I stepped on and what do you know I lost 3 pounds! I am so excited, finally a drop! 152!
I worked out yesterday but for the most part I just really watched what I ate this week and this past weekend. I picked lighter options and really had some self control when I was surrounded with things to over eat.

I finally get to pull some numbers for my team, Go Team Coral~

 

Great workout today! June 4, 2009

Shred #5!

It went pretty well….
I think I can feel myself getting stronger in my push up. They are still pretty ridiculously bad, but maybe a little better. I also still cannot get all the way through that series of lunges and bicep curls. I probably miss 4 on each leg, but hopefully I will gain some strength soon.

I did not work out yesterday..I know real bad huh. My monthly annoyance reared her ugly head yesterday and I have hard, hard times, especially the first day. I spent the day crampy tired, and running errands…lovely.

More of me wandering aimlessly through building of Italians and never where to go and how to ask! Hopefully my DD will be all signed up for the mensa (italian lunch program) when she starts asilo (italian school) in the fall. I handed the paperwork to someone and they looked at it and walked away…I guess thats good and all they need from me?!?

Even though I am still cycling (and not in an exercise way) pretty hard, I got a good workout it. I am feeling a bit watered down, I just hate the way puffy fingers feel!

Today I have to go get the oil changed in the nox and doing a little grocery shopping!

Have a great day challenge ladies!!
Go Team CORAL!!!

 

Shrinking Days of Summer! June 3, 2009

My teamates and I (GO TEAM CORAL) have 7 weeks to shrink into our skinny jeans…or well skinnier jeans!

The contest running at the sisterhood of the shrinking jeans starts today and runs to july 22. Man I better behave during this BBQ season!
My starting weight stat today is 155.

I am up a pound…but in my defense my monthly annoyance showed up today, so that might have a little to do with it!
I am looking forward to this challenge with my lovely teammates!
