I keep forgetting to come out here and blog, so while I'm waiting on my husband to stop playing minecraft so we can go do some shopping, I thought I'd post a little update.
It has been about 3 weeks now since round 3 of this journey began. I hit a point where I thought I wasn't going to lose a pound but after going to the bathroom finally, the scale is moving in the right direction! :)
I weighed in this morning at 190 even! That means, 10 pounds closer towards finding that sexy inner skinny girl burried inside.
I have found the motivation and the determination and the desire inside me to lose this weight. It took me a while to find that skinny girl voice but now she's stronger than ever! I'm ready to do this! I have done great logging in all of my food on myfitness pal and working out around 4-5 times a week (if not more).
I got me a heart rate monitor yesterday and love it! I was so excited to go put it on and go for a walk. I took my little 3 year old in the stroller today for a walk and watched my heart rate go up and up. :) We went for about 30 minutes (could have gone longer but it was kinda hot and I was out of water). I got home and my monitor said I burned 316 calories in 30 minutes. I put it into my fitness pal and it said I had only burned 167 calories... so I like my heart rate monitor, more accurate for me.
I got my heart rate up to 169 at the max and averaged at 151. I'd say that's pretty darn good.
I have been doing insanity almost every day after school unless I had something to do... I did skip out on a doctor's appointment because I really wanted to work out and was sad to miss it! CRAZY!? probably, but it felt so good to sweat and push myself.
I can't wait to work out on Monday and see how many calories I really burn doing that crazy workout. If I burned 316 calories just walking for 30 minutes, imagine how many I'm burning doing 45 minutes of pure hell... err cardio! :)
We went out to eat last night and I was so hungry but right when my yummy burger got there I cut it in half and only ate half of it, no fries, and part of my salad. I was stuffed! I did have a skinny raspberry lemonade (80 calories). When I plugged it into my fitness pal I was glad I only ate half because that darn burger was over 1000 calories and 59 grams of fat! So I only had 500 for half. :)
I am ready for the Easter candy to be gone from the house but am glad that it's in very small portioned sizes because I tend to get hungry at night and that's the first thing that pops into my mouth and at night it's hard for me to get that fat girl to shut up!
I'm working towards getting back in shape and healthy enough to be able to do a 5K maybe this summer sometime. Gotta keep on working out and losing that weight! :)
I look forward to having more energy and being able to move more without getting out of breath so I can enjoy the summer with my children.
Well my 3 year old just came up to me and asked me to play with her... so I guess I'd better do that before she throws a fit and who can resist those big puppy eyes!
Until we meet again... (Go drink some water and go for a walk. Get healthy and motivate someone else to do the same!)
