Periods SUCK! Period.

Hello all! Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, I was enjoying my Labor Day. I hope everyone had a great weekend, as did I! We took the babies to the park yesterday to swim, they were so cute! They had a lot of fun, so did we. The park I go jogging at also has a doggie park for them to swim. It was the first time we went, and we are def going back!

I decided to post once a week because I am so busy and I really don’t have time. I was on my period last week 😦 I read that the week before and during your menstrual you retain more water so the weight doesn’t come off, you actually gain! So that explains my no loss that one week.  Well I did not work out Wednesday because I was feeling miserable from Ms. menstrual 😦 But I am happy to report I did great though! Here are my results from last week.

This is my result from the park! Hubby went with me and I actually jogged for a whole mile!! My knees are paying for it though. 8-31-12

We went during the hottest time! You can see how I cut across the last lap lol. 9-2-12

My bunny friend from the trail LOL. 9-2-12

Well as you can see I’ve been busy! I feel so great though, actually feel less lazy 🙂 I took more time off this last week but I think I made up for it from Thursday and Friday’s results. I am going to see a nutritionist on Saturday. I feel like I am not eating right, even though I think I’m eating healthy. This should boost my weight loss too.. ok gotta go! Be sure to check out my weekly weigh-in tab!

Next Monday I am doing a Nikki in the FLESH post for y’all to see my inches lost. Ok, g’night!

WOWZA!

I’m gettin it!

Ok , so now I know! I have to increase the heart rate setting in order to burn more calories!! So, here are my results. Pretty awesome huh? Just imagine climbing a 125 story building stairs… that’s what I just did!!

I have to report on my overall wellbeing. I feel great. I have been weaning myself off of coffee and it feels good. I drink so much water and sweat so much in the gym. Before, when I used to work out, I used to not drink water all the time.. like, I’d go for months on just tea and sodas. I couldn’t break a sweat in the gym. But now I do and I love it! Just sweating out all those toxins.

I made turkey spaghetti tonight with tomato spinach sauce :p came out so good! I made the sauce homemade and idk if there has ever been a thing like it…. but I love it! I like to invent stuff lol… I used basil and oregano leaves (just a dash). I’ll add it to my recipes later. Well I have to go, I am going to do some browsing online for some cute stuff to inspire me.

Alrighty then!

This is just by increasing the speed to 3.1 from 3.0! If 10ft = 1 story and I climbed 968ft/ 10, then I climbed 96.8 stories in an hour 🙂

Thought I’d post the photo first! I did pretty well today! Increased the speed by .1 and I burned 50 more calories and climbed about 200 more feet!! Yes I am excited lol 😛 As I said yesterday the incline adjusts to keep your heart rate at what you entered. My target heart rate is 153 to start off with. As days go on I will increase my heart rate so the incline will rise and I will burn even MORE calories. My goal is 1000 cal/per hr! It is doable. If you don’t sweat and feel hungry towards the end… you’re not doing it right.

So I made baked chicken and spinach with  chopped up boiled eggs… soo good! I use garlic salt and lemon pepper to season my spinach. It’s canned spinach, Popeye brand. Cooking healthy takes less prep time than cooking fattening. Really! Well excluding frozen food you nuke in the microwave. I try to stay away from heating things in the microwave.

I didn’t do Insanity tonight.. we are going to let my mother-in-law use it (it’s hers anyway) so I can cut down some fat. Like I said earlier, they are very advanced moves and my legs and stomach get in the way! The trainer on there says to keep good form, and I can’t. So I am going to keep walking all month to cut off some fat inches first! By that time she will be through with her first month.

“You’ve heard it a thousand times, “muscles weights more than fat“. It’s the go-to thing to say to someone when they’ve been working really hard, but the scale hasn’t moved. So let’s look at this a bit more realistically. One pound of fat weights exactly the same as one pound of muscle. Whoa, did I blow your mind? The real difference is the volume. One pound of muscle is visibly SMALLER than the same weight in fat. Not to mention, it’s smoother and more compact compared to the jiggling mass of fat. Which would you prefer hanging off your rear end? Muscle works harder FOR you than fat does. One pound of muscle will burn 50 calories a day, versus fat which only burns 4 calories a day. So the more fat you have, the more YOU have to work to burn calories.
So why bring all these super interesting facts to my blog? Well for one thing – the scale doesn’t measure ANYTHING! You’re biggest indicator of health is how your clothes fit and changes in your strength.” – re-blogged from http://jiggleymommy.blogspot.com/2011/04/pound.html

I did the photo merge on paint with the text 🙂 Pretty interesting huh? This should motivate y’all to keep going, even if you hit a plateau for the week! This image of fat vs muscle will forever be burned into my head.

Ok, I need to get to bed earlier tonight. I’m getting up early to workout since we have to go to his aunts wedding tomorrow around 11am.

Goodnight 🙂

Mornin’ want a kolache?

So this morning at work I get here and need a coffee, I forgot to take my vitamines so I’m feeling tired. I’m not sore today 🙂 A co-worker of mine bought me a kolache… sounds evil huh? Well since I didn’t eat enough calories yesterday, I will have this kolache (sausage, cheese, jalapeno) this morning so it’s burned off by the end of the day! Your body burns calories all day without you realizing it. I’m going to walk on the treadmill today, the heat is too much for me! Especially since I am not used to being outside. Houston, TX weather is bad and gets super hot!

Today I plan on taking breaks and walking the stairs at work. I brought a bag of Honey Nut Cheerios to snack on for fiber. Lunch will be a sandwich again, with my carrots. I don’t mind eating the same thing for a week. So next week will have to be gourmet salad for lunch! This weekend I am going to prep dinner for next week. I’ll just do Mon-Wed dinner so we can just heat it and go! I hate grocery shopping so I will conjure something up with what we have. But I do need to buy ground turkey for burgers and spaghetti.

If you need something simple for dinner, get some ground turkey and you can make regular things you used to. Buy whole wheat buns for burgers, and whole wheat spaghetti noodles and viola! you have yourself a healthy meal without trying too hard! I would get regular tomato sauce and season it, or they sell light ones. To be on an effective diet, watch the sugar grams and calories. My old trainer told me nothing over 2 to 3g’s of sugar. Sodium is tricky, but if you buy low sodium they usually up the sugar grams for taste.

I’m going to post a photo of the jeans I have that I’d love to wear again 🙂

Ok have a great day!

This will be me soon!
