June 27th

Today I had a long day at work and I was exhausted when I got home. I didn't snack today at work and I have only had water to drink; I am at approx. 64oz so far and I have a glass sitting next to me. The past couple days I have lacked motivation to work out.I didn't go to the gym today because I didn't have anyone to watch Lilian, so I did a little TaeBo and some Jillian Michaels.. when I say some I mean everything but the jumping stuff, just so I don't piss off the people down stairs.
I am at 1,140 Calories for the day so I am back on track with my eating. I created my workout plan for July and my Caloric intake plan. Hopefully I will be seeing some results soon. Tomorrow I will weigh in and take pictures of myself in the mirror to compare with the pictures I took a few weeks ago.

Because of all my screw ups this week I am not taking my sunday day off tomorrow.. I haven't earned it.

Mine and Kyle's work schedules really clash this next week and I wont be able to go to the gym until wednesday so I will continue with Jillian Michaels 30 day shred and do some strength exercises that I can do at home with Lilian.

I think that is all for now.

June 26th

So I have been doing this for one week. I will officially weigh myself sunday morning before breakfast after my morning bathroom break. I missed yesterdays work out because we went to a baseball game, I picked a seat at the top of the bleachers so we would have to climb though.. everyone hated me. My caloric intake yesterday was 1327 calories, by far the highest this week. Until tonight.... 1440 calories today. I snacked at work and Kyle and I went out to eat, we had some Teppan Yaki and it was amazing. I will just have to double my work outs this weekend to one hour a day to make up for it.

June 24

Hi guys!! Today was a busy busy day for me today. We woke up early and headed out to the splash pad. We played for almost 2 hours before it got too icky out. We met with my Mommy Group and we celebrated friendships and made fruit salad. Kyle even went, we tag teamed it with Lilian because it takes 2 of us to keep up with her now. I went home put her down for a nap and crashed for 30 minutes. I then went to the gym for 30 minutes only. I road for 5 miles and ran home changed clothes and went to lunch with Samantha. We walked around the mall and went to Michaels. I have been scrapbooking since I got home.

So for today 5 miles on the bike in 30 minutes. No pictures the camera was home, but here is a cute one of Lily at the splash pad.

Re-adjusting goals

My short term goal is changing from 10 lbs on July 24th
to 16 lbs by July 24th

as for now my other goals are still remaining the same.

June 23

So today I worked 5 hours, came home and relaxed a little bit, then I went to my dads to let him play with Lilian for 45 minutes while I headed out to the gym. I rode for 35 minutes and did a WHOPPING 11.83 MILES. it was intense and I was soaked with sweat when I was done. Andie you're right it does feel good to sweat when you're working out. I also weighed myself today. I started out on June 2nd at 235lbs, when I started this blog I was 232. Today 227lbs. I am updating my ticker as I write this. I am starting to feel good and I am getting into a routine which is what I needed.

Today I did good.
I ate 1300 Calories.
Went to the gym and did 3/4 mile on the treadmill at a very fast paced speed... for me anyway. It was a good warm up. I then did 7 miles on the bike in 35 minutes.

Tomorrow I work and then I will be having dinner with my dad. I will go to the gym before dinner.

Oh yeah I am sore from Jillian Michaels last night.. she kicked my butt

Your estimated BMR is: 1,817 calories/day*

My total caloric intake was 979. With my mini workout at the gym today and 20 minute Jillian Michaels workout.. thanks to Youtube I burned approximately 426 Calories today on top of my BMR. woo hoo it feels good.

June 21st 2009 (edited to add photos)

So yesterday was a total bust. Kyle and I went to the movies.. We movie hopped and ended up seeing 3.. yes count them 3 movies. Up in 3d, the hangover and the proposal. I did good. I drank only water, however I did eat some popcorn and sour patch watermelons. No exercise.

Today I had a bagel and coffee for breakfast for the day I am at 318 calories.

I will go to the gym this evening, my workout goals will be: 2 miles on treadmill and 5 miles on stationary bike. 100 crunches (10 sets of 10)

I will eat 1,000 calories today.

My mini goal for the week will be to cut out all soda. I purchased crystal light packets for my water.

Tuesday I will be picking up my bike from my dads house and my scale, until then I have no weigh in



I went to the gym today I only worked out for 30 minutes because some guy came in and was just sitting on the weight machine staring at me while I road the bike. I finished my 30 minutes on the bike and left. His name was Sky and I am sure he had some sort of mental disability he just wanted someone to talk to but it still freaked me out. There was a reason why I was listening to the iPod.

Here are my work out photos.
