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!

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!

I have been eating good foods and watching how much I eat, but I still have not dropped on the scale.
I am not too concerned however, because I took the week off to recoup my leg which has improved. I am going to hit the workouts again and hopefully not re-injure it.

I am also retaining so much water! I hate it, I watch my sodium and drink at least 3-4 liters of water a day and I cannot seem to flush it all out. I think it has to do with the heat. I just am very sensitive and bloat for the smallest reasons. I know if I was not retaining I would have seen a drop this week, b/c I am pretty swollen today.

So anyway, my noneventful weigh in post!

 

Weigh in! June 10, 2009

Today is the weigh in for the sisterhood and I have not budged…..bummer!

I am not too stressed about it, b/c other people have noticed a difference and I got a few comments this week. I think I can even see a small difference. I also know my body and how it reacts to weights, I put on muscle faster than I lose fat. At some point tho, the weight will just suddenly start dropping off. I just hope it will drop during this challenge so I can pull in some big numbers for the team…Go Team Coral!

My leg in improving slightly, no workout yesterday, but I did walk around the block a couple times. No workout today but I ate very moderately. I have a busy day tomorrow so I am skipping the shred and will throw in a walk for sure. I figure I will give my leg one more day and then ease back into the shredding and hope for the best…..

hopefully the scale will budge a little next week….or a lot!

 

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!
