Well I've been saying for along time I need to lose 10-15lbs, well since I started saying that it's crept up too 15-20lbs. I started running in Nov. I fell and messed the ankle up and that seemed to take my motivation with it, today is 3 months since that happened and last night I did 30 min of HIIT, more like LIIT, but I did it and that's what matters to me.
My diet, well I'm kinda of a picky eater so it's strange, but I know what i need to eat and am going to make a good effort to eat right, and avoid drinking, not totally but some.
I plan to start a weight training next week after I get a week of running worked into my scheldule, then I will work training in.
So out of the starting gate I go not full blast, but I'm going.
I'm not sure about weight training just yet, I was suppose to start this week, but here it is thursday and nothing at all this week. I ran last mon & tue. Tuesday night my Dad died, (not all that unexpected he had cancer and looked bad christmas) I went to Dallas and did all the things you are expected to do, including staying up way past my bedtime. So for now I'm blaming my lack of excercising and being tired on the fact that I am tired.
I plan to take it kinda easy this weekend and get back on track Monday, Im going to focus on that for now. Just running and doing something with the few free weights I have and the bowflex.
Ok I'm back I'm motivated. I am working out regularly and learning to like egg whites and chicken breast again. Monday is walking day, tuesday hiit day, wed. will be jumping day (rope, jacks, kids toys) thursday biking day. Friday bud light day. Sat & Sun mowing days ( this is a decent little work out, tractor doesn't have power steering and weed eating takes hrs)
Now I just need to work in my weight training. Maybe 3 days a week so
we'll do it on Mon. Wed. & Fri.
Lawn & Pasture could be the husbands job but I like to do it, plus the kids can't get near me when I'm on the lawn mower, tractor or weed eating.
I'm in West Texas east of San Angelo
Getting back into it is the hardest part, I know what to do and can probably rattle off, calorie's, protein, carb to most anything w/o even thinking about it. But I have had a hard time getting motivated then I stood on the scale what a wake up call that was I slacked off way to long.
Ok I had a pretty good day,
7:30 1 egg white 2oz meat
12:00 3 oz ground beef
3:00 3oz chicken breast (was left overs from monday)
7:00 Chicken kabob (mix of breast & thigh)
Walked 5.5 miles approx. 4 miles per hr. did jump rope several times (I'm not very coordinated apparently)
Ordered some caffeine and couldn't find any ephedrine maybe they took it off the market, I have a couplke bottles left anyway and ordered some satiety hoodia from here so hopefully they will come in soon.
7:30 1 egg white 2 oz lean beef
9:30 8oz protein (was hungry)
10:30 1 egg white 2 oz lean beef
12:30 chicken kabob
I don't eat anything that is green, the only vegetables I eat are beans, potatoes and occasionally sweet corn the only fruits I will eat is an apple occasionally. I have no idea why, just have never likes them drove my folks nuts. I do cook them for my girls and they both like veggies & fruit.
Not intentionally leaving out carbs, just don't eat alot of them and most of the ones I like are not the good type.
Thanks for checking on me though.
you'd have no way of knowing about my picky eating
When I know I'm way low on carbs ( get irritable and manage to piss off the husband) I make spaghetti. Then just watch how much I consume, But since I'm just getting started again I don't want to drift to much outside the lines till I know I'm in full control of my eating, if not here comes the pizza.
