Hello! I’ve missed writing to you all. It’s been a hectic holiday and I’m a bit ashamed to say that I did not follow my diet and exercise program through Christmas and New Years. But it’s a new year and I’m ready to get back on track especially since my horrid eating habits have left me feeling tired and bloated and just GROSS! I know I felt terrible and kept eating, why do we do these things to ourselves.
Oh well, we can’t go back only forward so yesterday I started a 3 day shake cleanse. You drink 3 shakes, recommended is shakeology but I had Body By Vi shakes so I’m using those. I mix them with water not milk. You also drink two cups of green tea and for dinner a salad with lots of veggies, 4oz of protein and a little lite dressing. You can also have two pieces of fruit. While I did feel hungry yesterday today I feel better overall. So I’m going to stick with it for two more days. Although I may do a veggie soup for dinner or something hot because that was my problem yesterday I wanted to eat something warm.
So, now to be accountable for the damage I’ve done not exercising and eating any and everything I could get in my mouth.
Beginning Weight: 177
Last Weigh In: 162
Honestly, I thought this would be WAY worse, so I can’t be too disappointed. I am overall disappointed in myself, that I didn’t hold on to all the will power I’ve built up. I’m not sure why I gave in either. Maybe because everybody else was doing it, damn that peer pressure.
Well we had a nice Christmas but now time to get serious again I still have 20lbs to loose to meet my goal for the weight loss challenge, which ends on the 31st. Lindsey only has about 16, while I don’t think I’ll be able to loose all 20, I don’t want to not reach the goal by that much! I also challenged my sister to an exercise competition, who can workout on the most days before she gets here for vacation. I’m DEFINITELY going to WIN that one 😀
By the way yesterday I tried the Wii fit free fun and “ran” for ten minutes. Does anyone know how accurate the milage is? I know it’s a lot easier to run in place then to accutally go for a run but I did run in place for about 15minutes which I was kind of surprised I was able to do that. I have no cardio endurance to speak of, so while I know it’s not much I’m still happy with it. If anything it’s motivated me to try tomorrow to try to actually run outside. With a goal to run for 5minute intervals then walk two. Again let me know if that’s reasonable, I’m thinking if I can easily run in place for 15 minutes I should be able to run outside for 5?? I’ll find out and let you know 😉
Here are some of our holiday pictures, at least I was having a good time with my family while making all those BAD choices!
