LHA Week 7 WI

So today's WI goes like this:


Sigh, it was less than last week but since I didn't report last week I am showing a gain of 1.8 lbs. On the exercise front it goes as follows: 90 mins gymnastics practice; 60 mins swim lessons; 30 mins wii; 30 min walk at work. Total of 210 mins. Thank you kids and the activities I signed you up for! =) Since they are parent and me I have to particpate too. ;) The following weeks are going to be much better. I just looked back at my starting weight and it's exactly what I weighed in this week! I think this is a sign. A sign I can start over and go go go!! And I will.

Christine has started a side challenge for the next 4 weeks called the 7-11 challenge. We are to think of four goals for the next four weeks. Here are my four goals:

1. Journal my food NO MATTER WHAT every day!
2. Write out a positive affirmation every morning
3. Start incorporting veggies & fruits into dinner (SO hard for me to remember)
4. Drink only 1 soda a day

I think those are perfectly doable goals for the next 4 weeks. Wish me luck!!!

LHA Challenge Update

I know tomorrow is Week Seven WI. What happened to my Week 6 WI you ask? I chose to forgo it. I did horrible. I hate that I'm back in the 170s. I did no form of exercise (which I need to update my exercise totals) and I just all around basically SUCKED. I am so sorry fellow team members that I only got around your blogs the first week. Now we are onto new teams and I hope to be a better bloggy friend because frankly. I've been a horrible bloggy friend. No excuses. I'm also changing my WI date back to Monday (so I already have my WI for this week). That Wednesday WI was just killing me. If I have a Monday WI I just start over better on Mondays and I need to be good on the weekend so I can have a good WI come Monday. =) So watch out. I may have sucked the first 7 weeks but I'm going to try and kick it into gear the next 9 weeks (right? I think it's a 16 week challenge LOL!). So LET'S GET IT ON!!

Time to Start AGAIN

I am really really really tired of being fat. And you would think, that if I'm tired of being fat, that I would do something about it. Well hopefully the time has come. My clothes are getting tight again. :( I can barely fit into my shorts or jeans and I REFUSE to buy anything more. I need to do something to help me. I'm hoping over the course of the next few days to iron out what I need to do in order to get this weight OFF.  It's not going to help that I am going to be EXTREMELY busy over the summer with swim lessons, tball, and gymnastics for the kids (WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!) but that should also help to minimize the extra eating I've been doing at night too. It is also FORCING me to plan. We have to plan what we are going to eat or we will not get to eat. So, I have figured out that if I lose 2 lbs a week I can actually make my goal by the twins 3rd birthday. Is that going to be hard? Yes. Can it be done? ABSOLUTELY! So here are my goals:

August 2nd - 160
September 6th - 150
October 11th - 140
November 15th - 130

How can I accomplish these goals? These are the main things I need to do EVERYDAY. Now I know Christine at ExquisiteChristine does a point type thing everyday. I think I'm going to try it. I need to try something right?? For what it's worth I'll probably be hitting up a lot of blogs to see what is working for some people and trying those out myself. ;) So what do I have to do?

2. Stay around 1400 calories
3. Drink 64 ozs of water
4. Exercise for 20 mins

So that is what I have to do. Here is going to be how I'm grading myself.

Journal: 3 pts

1000-1200: 3 pts
1201-1400: 2 pts
1401-1600: 1 pt

64 ozs+: 1 pts
80 ozs+: 2 pts
100 ozs+: 3 pts

20 mins: 1 pt
40 mins: 2 pts
60+ mins: 3 pts

The most points I can get a day is 12. I will shoot to get around 50 pts a week. I'll keep you updated HERE. I am also planning on starting P90X again on Monday. I'm not going to be getting a lot of sleep since I have to do it in the morning but if I want to get this done, it's a sacrafice I have to make. I ordered the P90X drink supplement so I'm planning on having that for breakfast in the mornings. =) Hopefully that will stop my current practice of getting a donut at the snack bar each morning. Ugh. I really need to stop that.

Well, I think I've done all that I can for today. I'm going to keep this better updated. That's the ONLY way for me to get this weight off. No excuses. No butts. No nothing. As Nike says, Just Do It!

Can you tell . . .

that I fell off the P90X wagon?? I could not wake up on Friday. Well I could but the kids were up at night and I was just tired so I said screw it. So that led to no workout on Saturday or Sunday either. Then I figured I can't do anything Thurs - Sun this week so I'll start fresh again on Monday with p90X. Why not. I really do like the DVDs. It was fun and gave me a great workout!!! I can't wait to start again. It just KILLS me I have to wake up at 4am to do it. If it was 5am, it would be a better pill to swallow. But in 2004 I was dedicated and went to the gym every morning for MONTHS at 4:30am (waking up at 4am so I could get there when they opened). I can do it again. Granted, I didn't have kids waking me up then but I'll just learn to deal! (And go to bed by 9pm every night!).

Day Three of P90X

I woke up again this morning. Go me! I didn't go to bed until 11 pm last night because dh and I were watching The Hurt Locker but I still managed to get up at 4am and I didn't feel tired. (probably helped neither one of the girls woke me up last night!). Today was Shoulders & Arms. I only have 3 lb dumbbells at home but that was all I needed to start out with. For triceps and butterfly exercises that was PLENTY. I do need heavier weights for the biceps but I'm undecided what to do. Do I just buy some dumbbells here and there when I need them or do I just suck it up and buy the resistance bands instead? Any ideas, suggestions??

The diet is going eh. I did horrible yesterday since I was at training and home all day. =( Oh well. I'm trying to make today better! Although again, I started with a dang donut. Ugh. I have GOT to kill this sweet tooth. Still feeling sore today. It feels good though! I know I'm working out my muscles and it feels GREAT. I'm going to have to modify the workout days here. There is no way I can do Yoga on a workday. It's a 90 min DVD and I don't have that much time in the morning unless I want to wake up at 3:30 instead. I'll save that for Saturday. So instead of doing Yoga tomorrow I guess I will do Kenpo X. I'm going to try to make this fit into MY schedule. If I don't, it won't work and I'll quit and I am NOT QUITTING! K. =) I also know when I go to my parents next weekend I will have to skip Thursday - Sunday. No big deal. I'm going to try and go for some walks/runs while there and then I'll pick back up when I get home. I am NOT QUITTING. I am going to make this work with MY schedule so that I can and will succeed!!!

LHA Weigh In

Weighed in today and I have a maintain. Considering this past weekend was Memorial Day with lots and lots of food I'll take it!!!

Day 2 of P90X was great too! I am sore and it feels WONDERFUL! Do I like getting up at 4am. No. Do I LOVE that I get it all over with first thing in the morning. YES!!! I will continue to do it until I die from exhaustion. LOL! I was in bed at 7:30 last night. Slept until 4 am and I was STILL tired today. Ugh. I know i'll get use to it but geez. It may take me a little while.

Day One of P90X

I so did NOT want to wake up this morning but I forced myself to. After thinking about it last week, I knew I was starting P90x today. But the question was when do I do it? Morning, Evening? If I wait until the evening, I won't be starting it until like 9pm because the darn kids don't want to go to bed, argue, etc etc. So if I don't want to be interuppted I have to do it in the morning. No matter when I do it, dh will be watching me since i have to do it in the living room right now so take that out of the equation. So morning it was. Set my alarm for 3:50am so I could stay in bed for like 5 minutes but then I got my butt out of bed and turned the DVD on and sweated my butt off!! Felt so good!! I can see myself being pushed and really liking this! Yeah!!!
