Weigh in Wednesday

Weigh in Wednesday with the Ladies!

 Weigh In Wednesday

This mornings weigh in....

243-Which I am totally happy with. I made about 50% healthy choices this week and exercised, I just need to up that percentage of healthy choices. 

I woke up nice and early (530am!) and did a mile run on the treadmill and some arm weights.



I really need to figure out a weightlifting routine. I just don't know what to do and don't really have someone to go with me/can't afford a trainer.  I found decent routines online, especially this Simply Shredded but I just worry doing it by myself.  I have no fear of the weight room or looking new, I just have it in my head I need a spotter or something? I think it is just my way of avoiding it.

 So far in December I have gotten 2 workouts in and I am at 90 minutes of my 1350 goal :)

How's your Wednesday? Don't forget to enter the giveaway from Monday!

Weigh in Wednesday!

Back for Weigh in Wednesday with my favorites :) 
Weigh In Wednesday 

I had a decent week exercise wise.  I am trying to get 75 miles in by the end of the month for a challenge & still plugging away at my 1350 minute goal but I am not sure that will happen this month.  Tracking my food and staying at my goal is always a struggle but I am working on it, I only hit it twice this week but its a start :) Follow me on My Fitness Pal:Healthysew!

 I was happy with the 1.6 pounds lost this week.  

This is my Carrot app. It makes me laugh because it will yell at you when you gain weight and has a 7 minute workout option.  I like it and it helps motivate me. 
I am excited for Thanksgiving tomorrow to spend time with family.  I am planning on doing the #wiwturkeyday5k Thanksgiving 5k hosted by Ash, Heather & Erin :) so I will get a good workout in the morning and hope to have all the food I want in moderation.

Whats your plan for Thanksgiving?

Um. Hi :)

Soooo I haven't posted in well over a year.  I kept putting it off basically because of fear and not wanting to face the facts. Then I remembered the purpose of blogging is to document my journey, nothing else.

A lot of things has happened in the last year in my life, yet some things are totally the same.

I graduated college with my Bachelors degree :)


I tore two tendons in my ankle and severely bruised the bone :(


I turned 28 :)

And I havent lost any real weight.

I weighed in Wednesday at 242 pounds.  I'm not putting a sad face though, because I am proud of my journey.

This year I ran a mile without stopping,


 I survive Insanity classes without quitting on a  regular basis, and I can do a 4 minute wall sit.

Life is full of ups and downs and without those I would get bored and complacent.

One of my favorite bloggers, Elle Noel posted about the Piles on the Miles Challenge by Monica at Run Eat Repeat.  Basically you pledge a goal, it can be miles, minutes, times a week, whatever you want to do.

 

I pledged to get 1350  minutes of exercise in the month of November. Join me!

I'm ready to get back to blogging and have a great November.

If anyone is still reading, what are your goals for November?

Happy Monday

Time for another weekend shenanigans! As always go check out Sami and everyone's weekend shenanigans!

Sami's Shenanigans

Friday was usual work day. Ready for alcohol nice and early, so of course I had to send a snap chat. After work I went to the Y with a friend and did some weights and then attempted to run outside, but it was way too hot for me. Not sure how you guys do it! Then Friday night some friends came over and we did some drinking and watched Anchorman. Good night!


Saturday was lots of napping! Then later I went to BW3 with my brother and got a massive amount of food, i shared of course. Then we saw R.I.P.D. it didn't get great reviews but I thought it was good. Love Ryan Reynolds.


Sunday was out for breakfast! Then some grocery shopping. More naps and then an awesome run! I did my fastest miles so far 16.09. Still crazy slow but big improvement for me and that's all that matters! Then lunch prep for the week: quinoa, avocado, tomato & chicken. Hopefully its yummy!


All in all I had a great weekend, here's to a good week!

How was your weekend?

Monday Update

Time for another Weekend Update with Sami !


Sami's Shenanigans

I had an excellent weekend filled with family and fun times, of course zero exercise and the scale showed that..

But lets go back to Thursday.. I did not really have fun plans for the actual 4th since we had family stuff planned for the weekend. But I did get in a 5k wog as virtual stars & strips 5k. It wasn't a great run for me, I felt super drowsy and sick the whole time, but I got it done!


Friday I weighed in for my challenge... at 238.4!! Which was awesome and definitely the result of my hard work last week.

Did my nails Friday night all festive for the 4th

This is pretty intricate for me so I was psyched.
 
Saturday was the family party, spent most of the time drinking and having fun with family I don't get to see too often. Of course I only got a couple of pictures.
 
 



Sunday was spent cleaning and trying to get water in. I weighed in this morning and it was 244!! Hopefully that falls off quickly with lots of water and exercise this week. I cant let 2 days ruin my great week!

Happy Monday! How was your weekend?

Heather, Ash, Bailey, & Amy. They are so supportive and encouraging!

Same old thing with me, I have been working out sporadically and eating tends to follow. I do really well like Sunday-Wednesday but unfortunately my bad eating and lack of exercise over shadows that.

Still involved with the Bikini Body Mom challenge and I have another Fighting the Fluff challenge.

Darci has #60inSixty starts Friday, goal is to get 60 miles in before Labor Day. I have never set a specific mileage goal so I cant wait to get started.
