I say this a lot, but …

May 2nd, 2016

This time I mean it. I’m it to win it because I made a bet and I must win. I’ve pre-determined tomorrow’s food and workouts and I’m ready for day 1.

I took a weight and it was bad (175) and I took a tummy measure and it was worse (43). I do not fit into any of my clothes and I can’t breath and my back is killing me. 

I may as well do the 30 day challenge plan and do a plank in the am and pm and 10 squats every time I use the loo.

Let’s do this! I’m following the 21 day fix workouts and the 17 day diet menu plan. If I can’t lose 25 pounds in 7 months I suck worse than I thought. 

Quitting smoking is on my horizon also. My plan is to wake up May 13th and not smoke. I’ll be going on a trip that will make smoking difficult so I think it’s a good date. 

And, speaking of trip, I am taking my workouts with me!  How’s that for a 1st?  I won’t have weights (most likely) but I can at least workout weightless…or better yet, maybe I’ll go buy some resistance bands since all the workouts have that option. Food will be an issue, but I will try to make good choices. 

I’m also going to try journaling and see if that makes a difference. Daily posts here and each night pre-plan the next day’s food and exercise. I wish getting fit wasn’t so much hard work. 


4 days

April 18th, 2016

Is how long I made it this time on plan.  Yep, starting over.  I will probably regret it, but I ordered Thrive.  We will see how it goes.  I tried it before for 3 days after getting samples from a neighbor.  

I will let you know.  I see lots of websites reviewing the MLM scheme, but what I really want to know is do the products work.  I don’t want to be a “promoter,” I want to have more energy and decreased appetite.  (I won’t mind though if you order using my referral link, because, hey discounts are cool).


30 day challenge

April 10th, 2016

I’m making another go at a 30 day challenge. This gives me a month to lose my short-term goal of 15 pounds. I think it’s doable if I stick to the work outs, eat reasonably, and stay away from alcohol. I am combining it with a 1200/500 calorie day on/off diet and 21 Day Fix workouts. I found a daily planner and have mapped out the food and workouts for the month, along with my 30 day Spring Cleaning Challenge.

I’ll take measurements tonight.


Why…

April 4th, 2016

can’t I be one of those people who gets into a fitness routine and kills it?  No, I have to be the kind of person who does okay for 5 days, so so for another 3-4 and then goes crazy the wrong way. 

There’s got to be a better way. And not surgery, because I can’t afford that. 


Used to be….

March 21st, 2016

I’m looking at my hands, my face, my legs, and my feet and, well really, my whole body, and I’m thinking WTF happened.  My throat hurts.  Really.  Like, in the I think I have toungue and/or throat cancer sort of way.  My hair is brittle.  My hands are crippled and wrinkley looking.  

Something is wrong.  I think I may need professional help.  I’m going to check out holistic health farms. 

I used to be pretty, healthy, and had the hands and legs of a model.  This current me is no me.
