I actually have a plan this week, and I think I will do well!  I mapped out walking routes around my house and around work so I can do a 30 min walk at lunch and about 45-60 min walk at home.  I went to the grocery store at lunch today so I’d have healthy options this week.

I had a 50/50 spring mix/spinach salad with tuna (canned in water), green olives, and a little bit of ranch for lunch.

I have apples and banana’s for snacks.  And I bought a case of water and cereal and skim milk for breakfast.

So, I WILL have a successful week this week!

(sidenote: I work on the second floor, so I go up and down the stairs every day, sometimes multiple times a day.  A goal of mine is to not be out of breath after going up 1 flight of stairs Embarassed)

How is everyone else doing?

Uhho it’s snowing/raining and cold out and the excuses are already surfacing….motivation To hit the gym please!!!!

What kind of cereal do you guys find fills you up and keeps you full till lunch? I never seean to find any that keep me full – but might be because I don’t use milk…

I usually have Kix or Cheerios, but I also try to have a banana or something to go along with it.  And I also use milk in my cereal, skim milk.  I am fortunate (I think) to have grown up drinking skim so it doesn’t bother me.  Fiance drinks whole milk, and it completely fills me up if I drink his!

I just had a pink lady apple, oh my gosh so good!  I’ve never had that kind before, now I know to look for them πŸ™‚

Well I went to Dallas for a wedding this weekend.  Honestly I thought I did good (especially since we walked 5 miles on Saturday and I danced my butt off on the dance floor at the wedding Saturday) but still I was up to 145.5 yesterday morning!  Ick!  I am back to 144lbs today and hoping to see 142 by this weekend!  Fingers crossed.

I am doing the 17 day diet, phase 2.  So on my no carb days all I can do workout wise is about 20 mins of incline walking, however on my carb days (today) I am doing the couch to 5k.  Hoping for success this week! πŸ™‚

I have a trip to Florida on Feb 3rd…I’d love to weigh 138 by then! πŸ™‚

So how is everyone doing so far today?  I had a banana for breakfast and then had a sandwich on whole wheat with 28 pretzel sticks (yes I counted them out) for lunch.  So about 475 calories so far today.  Also, had about 60 ounces of water so far – my goal each day is over 100.  So I need to get to drinking πŸ™‚

I went for my afternoon walk on my lunch break – about 4 miles in a hour – so not bad and planning to go to a boot camp class tonight.

Hiiiiiiii!

I bought this awesome whole grain mix (oats, wheat, rye, barley) from Trader Joes and made it for breakfast with almonds and craisins.  Super good.

I lost another 2lbs!  I’m thrilled… haven’t seen this number for about 4 years.

I am doing good so far.  Last night I had 1 fajita (homemade) and refried beans and worked out for 45 minutes.

This morning I had a banana, then a bowl of cheerios w/ skim milk + coffee w/ FF creamer. 

I went on a 30 min walk at lunch, need to map out where I went I don’t know how far it was.  But I got a blister half way through so the second half of my walk was really slow πŸ™  But I made it.  Then I had a salad with tuna and water for lunch.

Don’t know whats going on for dinner, but I plan on doing another 45 min work out tonight.

if you want to mix up your workout today try this…

high knees

hitler kicks (that’s what my trainer calls them…kick your legs up in the air, keep your legs straight).

squat jumps

(30 seconds each, no rest in between each exercise. 60 second break between each set)

then…

10 burpies

one set of stairs

15 pushups

20 lunges on each leg (with weight if you want)

(repeat 4 times)

 

This will get your heart rate up and help with strangth training at the same time!

@KristenGotMarried: That is AWESOME!!! Keep up the good work!

@futureMrsCPT: Not sure if you had a smartphone but you can use mapmyrun (even for walks) and it will tell you how far you went next time! I’m not sure how accurate the calorie count is on the app is but from what I can tell the distance is just about always right.

@Mrs.SplatterPaint: I feel like you just stole my boot camp instructors work out for this evening πŸ™‚ Do you do a boot camp or a class? Or where do you have a trainer at?

@Lindsey2005: I have taken classes in the past but right now I am just working with a trainer. He owns his own business and actually comes to our house to train us…it’s pretty awesome. Those two circuits are ones that he has had us do recently.
