So I haven’t worked out yet this week. Technically didn’t work out this weekend either, but I went to the renaissance fair on Sunday and also volunteered at the Barr Trail Mountain race that morning so I feel like that counts as being active.
Renaissance Fair was awesome, it was a date, and I loved it. But yeah so I definitely need to workout tonight!
That’s all. Also, I am starting to kinda like swimming!
Oh, and an aside, I weighed in today at 167.8. I think that’s lower than I’ve been in a long time. I’m eating enough I think, I feel like I eat so much, but I think just eating better being vegan is helping. Because I’m not gorging all the time. Plus this has been soooooo gradual. Which is fine. I’m not eating vegan for weight loss but if it happens that’s cool.
I’ve been less than awesome at training since last week. I worked out on Monday and Tuesday, then did the mountain on Friday but that’s it.
No outdoors stuff though this week with the fire going. Most of the trails are closed.
But I’ve also decided to be more weight loss focused for the time being. WIll still run, but I want to lose some more pounds before I get any more serious. My running times since I’ve started again have been much slower than usual, and I think it’s at least partially from the weight I’ve gained.
If I can at least get back to where I was at the end of summer last year I’d be happy.
I was on this website that helps you calculate what weight you want to lose and what day it could happen by if you lose it safely, and if I start now, by August I could be back where I was.
Weighed in at 157.6 today. At least it’s still down from where I was starting June 11th.
It SAYS that if I were to lose 2 pounds per week all the way through August that I could get to 139. Which has been one of my goals since forever. I doubt that will happen, but to get to the lower half of the 140s would be nice. So if anyone wants to join me that would be cool. Not gonna make it a “challenge” or anything because I tend to drop off on those, but still a goal.
And in honor of that and my vacation ending, I’m setting up some goals.
Stay on track with homework
Do at least an hour of school related work a day.
Gonna start New Rules of Lifting for Women again.
Run at least 3x a week, and try to follow the training plan as close as possible because my running needs to catch up to where my training is supposed to be.
At least one run a week has to be on a difficult-ish trail.
I want to try the 100 pushups thing. Not go through the entire program, but I want to get 20 real pushups in a row again.
It might be a lot, but maybe 0 to 1650 again? Now that we have the outdoor pool going it might be more fun.
Finally, weight loss. It’d be nice to lose some pounds/inches. I weighed in today. Post vacation weight: 159 lbs. Not as much as I thought I had gained, but crap that makes like 15 pounds gained over just a few months.
Social life goals:
No more alcohol for the rest of June. At least. I don’t foresee that to be a problem because I won’t be having much of a life for quite awhile.
And..that’s pretty much it.
Since ShortMom and a lot of other people are doing it, perhaps this might be good for me.
4n4 Challenge: 4% Loss Ending on 6/18
Starting weight of today, May 21: 154 lbs
4% goal: ~6.2 lbs
Also I guess this would mark Day 1 of Summer of Scales.
This should be nice to give me something to look forward to.
I woke up early and hit the gym!
Went to spinning class for the first time in well over a year! So hard. I was dying the whole time. It was hill day, and we ended up doing like 6 or 7 climbs.
After that, I hit the weights, did the first day of Jillian Michaels’ Making the Cut exercise program (AGAIN), it was hard. I normally don’t do weights after cardio, but since I showed up late to spinning and I didn’t want to be super tired for my first day of spinning anyway, I did it after.
I was hoping to go to Zumba tonight because my favorite instructor was teaching, but I’ve been having car trouble and I finally got a guy to look at t it and he was fixing it.
Who would have thought having to replace your power steering fluid every ten miles was bad (well, I did but didn’t do anything about it)?
Also, since it’s Monday I will mark this as official day 1 of working out again and trying to do what I can to look good for Miami, I weighed in today at a horrid 154.6. Also hadn’t seen that in over a year.
