Latest Victories!!!

Hello World I am getting on!!! Well another week gone by and another weigh in, I lost another 3lbs and I am down to 208!! But I actually have even better news if you can believe it, I bought pants today at THE GAP, I know a regular store!!! I was so excited I kept trying on more and more pants, it was unbelievable. Then we went to the disney store and Adam saw this great little sundress for the cruise but it was "One size fits most" and lets be honest I have never been "most", but today I am. It fit!!!

I also had a major fitness victory this week!! I decided to try spin again , I hadn't been since my first week at the gym on Dec 2nd and I was ready to give it another go. I am not exagerating when I say I felt like a different person. I was able to keep up, turn the gears with the rest of the class and I really enjoyed it! I also ran on the treadmill this week at 5.7 my fastest pace ever!!! So today instead of congrtulating myself with food I headed to the New Balance store and bought the most amazing sneakers ever!!! Now nothing will stop me in my 5k!!!

For my diet and exercise plan I have been on a 1250 daily calorie intake with one day a week I allow myself up to 1400, I am working out 6 days a week 2 hours each time. This week I increased my cardio which Ron says will help melt away the pounds. I am feeling good and can't wait to try out my new shoes!!

That is all for now, love to all and be in good health!

Just registered for my first 5K!!!

Hey all, sorry it has been so long since my last update I did have a weigh in last Thursday and my last recorded weight was 212 and I was not very excited to have only 2.6 lbs down. I did go down from 41 to 39 in body fat but still 2.6 ugh! I thought for sure I was having that time of the month or something that could have explained it but no! I am trying to focus on the positives, it is a loss!!!!

We did have quite a bit if excitement last week when I was watching the season premier of The Biggest Loser. There is a contestant from Orlando who was eliminated last week and as I was watching the segment of him at home I see my personal trainer Ron Betta training him!! I was so excited!! On our last meeting ron has challenged me to be under 200lbs in 2 weeks. This has given me alot of frustration. First I crunched the numbers with my bodybug and figured I needed to drop 6lbs a week and in order to do that I would need a daily deficit of 3000 calories. Whew, that is no joke! He suggested I try to burn 1000 calories in an hour and the closest I have come is 959 in 90 minutes. I also have started experiencing quite a bit of pain when running in my shins. arrggh! I do have positives though, some things are getting easier and I went down a dress size!!!

I thought maybe I should focus my energy on a short term fitness goal..... so I registered for my first 5K! My goal is to run this!!!! I will post my fundraising page as soon as I get it up, the cause is sucicide prevention.

I have also discovered tubokick and hiphop hustle and I absolutely love them! I love how great the music is at motivating me to keep going!!!

Love to everyone and be in good health!
