Again my apologies for my lack of posting on WWW. But I'm still suffering with IT band trouble and calf issues. My workouts for the last 2 weeks have been few and far between. Plus my eating healthy has suffered quite a bit with all that has been going on. But I am determined to get back on track. So here we go with the stats....
Starting Weight: 169 lbs.
Last Weigh In: 161 lbs. (Week 10)
Last Week's Weight: 160 lbs.
Current Weight: 159 lbs.
Goal Weight: 145 lbs.
Ideal Goal: 125 lbs
1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal.
My goal is to regain my healthy lifestyle. It's not so much about the weight. It's more about how I look and feel. I DO NOT want to be a skinny little woman. I want to be strong and healthy. I want to have an athletes body. I want arms that you would kill for. I've definitely got a long way to go. But I did notice in the past week that my arse is now smaller than my hips and thighs! This is huge for me since I carry the majority of my weight in my lower body. Now if I could just get the weight moving off my thighs and into my boobies! LOL!
2. Discuss what I am doing to Achieve these Goals.
I've been running. And running too much. These injuries that I've been getting are a direct result of me not focusing of other areas of my training. I absolutely need to increase my weight workouts. I need to increase the muscle in my glutes and calves. So here is my new schedule...
Activities and Goals for this Week
Eat a healthy salad 3x for lunch.
Eat 1 banana every day and 1 yogurt.
Run 3x this coming week. (minimum 5 kms each run)
Weight train 3x this week and stair master at the close of every workout.
Try to get into the pool for at least 1 swim.
3. Post a reasonably healthy recipe, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out, a photo update on my weight loss, or anything else I'd like to share.
I found a great app for my phone that helps a ton with my outdoor runs. It's mapmyrun. This is great because it gives you a breakdown of your speed, your distance. It also has a calorie counter but I don't find that as useful as MFP.
Now just a little pick me up for myself. And to share with you all how far I really have come. Even though it's slow going I do feel proud with my progress, as I know I am doing it the healthy way.
I considered myself pretty healthy before my pregnancy. Not at my ideal weight, but I was working really hard and I had lost 20 lbs before my last transfer. My starting weight prior to the cycle was 145. My weight at 6 weeks pregnant with twins was 155. Mind you I had been on massive amounts of hormones. And I ballooned with pregnancy and swelling so that 2 weeks before delivery I was 190...Meaning I was probably pretty close to 200 by the time I delivered. My weight at 1 month post partum was 174, and I seemed to stay there. Urrgghhh! So by being only 4 lbs away from where I was at 6 weeks pregnant means a whole lot to me.
