Week two

Going into week two I have been more determined than ever.   I have stuck with my eating plan and done the workouts.   I did have a couple of days where my emotions have gotten the best of me but I think that is pretty normal since I am not dealing with my feelings through eating.  I have instead, talked it out, went for a run or distracted myself when all I wanted to do is eat.   I have been posting on Twitter or  Instragram as well, to show my progress and get my feelings out it has been a big help.    

Week Two Weigh in:  245.6 (-2.2) for a total of -10.4 loss

Weekly Workout 

Thursday- 30 mins Run (burned 449 calories)
Monday- 60 mins, Body Pump (burned 417 calories)
Tuesday- 40 mins, Run (burned 383 calories) 


How is your week going??  

I also wanted to Thank everyone who reads and comments on my blog.  It means so much to me.  I could not be on this journey without you guys.

Week one

As I have said in my last posted "I WILL"   So here are the stats for the week.

Week One- 247.8 (-8.2) I am super happy with the results.  I know when we start over and are fully committed the first week is usually pretty impressive.  I know some of this weight is water weight but you know what? It got me out of the 250's and I NEVER want to go back there again!  

I wish I could bottle the motivation and determination I have right now.  I know I will need it  in the weeks to come.  I haven't had too many craving  I have been trying to keep myself busy with housecleaning, organizing, anything that keeps my hands out of the cookie jar!  lol

I recently switched gyms.  I was not happy with the hours or the classes .  Thanks to Kijiji I was able to switch my contract :)  I couldn't wait another two months.   I did this last Wednesday and I have gone three times already.    Needless to say,  it was the right decision.

Weekly Workouts
Wednesday- 28 mins, Run
Sunday- 27 mins, Walk
Monday- 50 mins, Arc Trainer
Tuesday- 60 mins., Body Vibe Class + 10 mins, Elliptical

I opened a Twitter account for my blog as well.  Look me up " trainingmyfat" I am much better at updating about my daily life.    

Anyone on MyFitnessPal?   You have to love Social Media!  I know their can be a lot of negative but if you approach it the right way it can be pretty great.

Enjoy your week!

I Will

I am sick of my bras and pants getting tighter and tighter.  I am sick of making excuses for the way I have been eating and the minimal exercise I have been doing.   I need to get my shit together and take this weight off.   I know it will not be easy but I am ready.  I have all the tools I need with my fitness pal, gym membership, workout videos,  reading weightloss blog, training for a half marathon.  I can do this!  I am worth it.     

I will go to the gym 5 times a week
I will make healthy eating choices
I will weight myself every Wednesday and post it on here
I will take my measurements

and track it every month 
I will talk about my feelings when I am upset or go for a walk 
I will log my weekly workouts 
I will set small weight loss goals
I will follow through on this promise because enough is enough!  

I just weighed myself and I am 256.  As disappoint as I am to see that number.  I will not let it defeat me.  This will be my starting number and first goal is to lose 10 pounds.  

I am taking the blinders off and I am going to give this 100 percent!    

I will!

Sleep

If you have read my blog or know me personally sleep has never been my friend.   And lately it has gotten worst. I feel exhausted all the time especially in the last month.   Over the years I have taken numerous blood tests, gone to a sleep clinics, a chiropractor, naturopath,  acupuncture, tried different diets, read books to improve my sleep quality and nothing has worked.  I am 34 and I feel like I should have way more energy then I do.   I have been having this problem since I was around 12 years old.  One thing I need to start doing is going to bed and waking up at the same time.  But this can be challenging since I work shift work.  But thankfully I work a lot more night shifts then morning.  I am going to really try to focus on this.  But I think it's time to go back to my doctors and discuss other test options?    Some thing is not right and it needs to be fixed stat!   I also believe if I am get this under control it will help with my weightloss.  

I want to start blogging more.   And I am going to bring back my weekly workout updates and weight in.  I also will start giving myself monthly challenges again.  

How is your sleep quality?   Do you wake up and go to bed at the same time?  Even on weekends?
