Still keeping on

I've been writing out my food logs just haven't had a chance to put them up here... Doing great with eating- I still have over 20 flex points left and it's Thursday (I get new points on Saturday!) and discovered a dance work out (dance off the inches calorie blast I believe) that RJ and I do together it's a lot of fun (her version just involves spinning in circles, jumping a lot and yelling :0). That on top of the shred every day I can't believe how much stronger my body is getting! It's exciting. I'm in the market to get a double jogging stroller (used) so I can start running as soon as it's a bit warmer- gotta get ready for the 6k!

Week 5 Recap!

I can't say how excited I am about how much I feel my body changing!!! I feel so much stronger. When I started the 30day shred I felt like I was going to die in level 1 cardio segments...The jumping jacks were killers. I've only been doing it not quite a month and I'm now at level 3 with 3lb weights and the cardio is nothing (well okay not nothing I still feel like I'm going to die the last 30 seconds but it's level THREE!)

so recap!

Week one:
waist: 36.5"
Hips: 47.5
Thighs: 26.5
Bust 47.5
Arms: 13
Weight: 195

3.5 weeks in:
waist 36.5"
Hips: 44"
Bust 43"
arms 13

Week five:
waist: 36"
hips: 43
bust: 42 (oh and I wear the same bra for every measurement to keep it accurate)
thighs: 25.5!!!!
arms: 12.5 !!!
weight: 190

Progress! That's another loss of 3.5inches! brings the total to 5lbs and 12.5inches lost!!
My clothing definitely fits differently, I can't fit in my pre-preggo pants yet (I gained a LOT of weight with dd2) but my fat pants are getting good and loose and I'm almost down to my pre-preggo fat pants :0D It is so encouraging to see some results!

I wonder if I'm really going to just start losing and losing now that I've hit my stride...After my first daughter I didn't really lose much untill she was 5 or 6months old it was like my body held on to every thing...Dd2 is now 5.5mos old and maybe I'm about to start shedding. Here's hoping!

UGH my body is NOT bouncing back from this bug I just can't seem to digest any thing that well specifically onions and garlic both give me awful heartburn and lead to nausea and vomitting. :0( I haven't had a stomach bug since I got my gall bladder out- maybe that's the problem??? Either way we'll say dinner was 4p and my total for the day is above...

Week Four RECAP

Well I caught my daughters stomach bug. I was soo soo soo sick. I haven't been that sick with a stomach bug since I was a kid. The good news is I'm down to 191-192. Some of that was real weight loss I think.

So I have no idea what my point intake was but Wednesday afternoon when I got sick I had just finished doing level 1 and 2 of Cardio Max (well it was an hour or two later)- that did NOT help. All the lactic (sp?) acid from my work out build up big time getting dehydrated= PAIN.
Anyway back to tracking...Going to do my best to hit my goal for the day I have been doing bad at that this week, yes being sick is a good excuse but my milk supply has been taking such a huge hit (some thing I've never dealt with before! I've always had way way way oversupply but AJ sleeps much better than RJ ever did...And I think it's making it a bit harder on my body) I am pretty sure fertility is returning (haven't had pp AF yet). I am having some signs of ovulation and my milk supply seemed to dip a bit earlier in the week, it was starting to recover when I got sick and I seriously couldn't keep any fluid in me for about 16 hours. On top of that barely being able to eat now...Well I'd really like to see my milk supply going up soon. Baby is nursing like crrrazy-doing her part but I need to do mine. Lots of oatmealy things this weekend!

So end of week FOUR:
weight: 192 - 3lbs down- but considering I started before the Holdays that's great!
inches lost: 9inches from all over body.

subtotal 35points (I made it!)

Signing up for a 5k!

So I've been at this almost a month now...Weight loss? Still 1lb. But considering the holidays and how much I ate I think that sure beats the 5lbs I almost always GAIN during the holidays. I think I'll really start to see it shed in the coming weeks.

And I'm excited to say I'm going to sign up for a 5k run for mid July!! I'm quite excited to get more details about the race (it was just announced). It's to raise money for The Ben Yorgey Foundation. My Mom and Ben's Mom are bestfriends and I saw a lot of Ben over the years. I am so excited about what this foundation is going to do. I know the last couple years of Ben's life were full of challenges and a lot of frustration. He was thrown from the security of the program he was in at school for over 18years into the world with no where to go. He wanted to contribute but due to his special needs his family was left with a big financial burden and not a lot of resources available. This foundation will do so much good to local young adults graduating highschool...I'm so excited to be a part of it!

So that will give me a big kick in the behind- I need to be able to run a 5k by mid-July. I'm hoping just by working out daily and really shedding the weight and getting in good cardiovascular shape I'll be able to handle this with out too much "training" :0) We got my 2 year old daughter a trampoline for her birthday so I've been rebounding for 20-30 mintes in the morning and afternoon just for fun- burns some extra calories and I can "run" in place...When the ice melts and the days get longer I think I'll start jogging the 2 mile loop in the evenigns (CHILD FREE that will be LOVELY) also runnign on the elipticle should help as well. I'm really excited to do a race- I've never done even a 3k yet!

Today: I woke up starving at 4:30 am and had to eat some thing- so I had 2 breakfasts...really messes with my food intake

Here we go...

Happy New Year. My cold is pretty much gone and I have enough energy to dive back in...I think.

I ate OK over the Holiday- we stayed home and didn't really party (besides my 2 year olds birthday cake ;0)... I think I did OK over the holidays all things considered. Thankfully all the cookies, candy and other treats are out of the house and I stocked the pantry with lots of beans and healthy (or at least lower calorie/fat) snacks...And the fridge with fruits and veggies! So now to officially dive in and eat well.

I got a new DVD work out it's a Biggest Loser work out called Cardio Max. I have collected SO many work out DVDs since I started working out on a daily basis 5 years ago. It is sick. :0/ But as I look over all those DVDs I realize I've outgrown many of them (maybe time to ebay them?) they are also LONG work outs and don't pack enough of a punch for the short time I have to exercise every day. THe Biggest Loser (Jillian Michaels etc.) work outs kick my butt. I sweat like crazy, I can barely make it through some of the reps. I did the level one work out of the Cardio Max this morning, oiye am I out of shape. Or maybe my cold still has me a little wiped out?
Anyway, the work out is great- I don't like some aspects in the level one Bob isn't working out he's walking around encouraging - but he's ignoring some very blatant posture and positioning issues in some of the participants...The one woman was pushing herself so hard- which is great-but her form was awful and I (in my oh so professional opinion) feel like he should have challenged her on her form. Either way it's going to be amazing to see how far I come as I do this every day...I plan on doing cardio max 4 days a week for 30 minutes ON TOP of a daily dose of 30 Day Shred. 30 day shred is the main thing the cardio max is just extra. I may take to some random runs on the elipticle but I need some thing every day that will really pack a punch. I am not going to push it the shred is my main thing since it's 20 minutes and I can almost alway ssqueeze that in- amd with that I head off to do it!
