Today I weigh 167.4 pounds

By June 29th I should be down to 147.4

Day One…

AGAIN!!

I am so tired of starting over! But its my own fault. I let myself quit.  Life happens, things get busy, I am now going to school full time on top of working full time and being a full time mum. But.  I HAVE to make tome for me to get back in shape and healthy!

I am going to do it!

I am going to put it all there right now!!

I weigh 170 pounds!! *Insert CRYING Emjoi!*

According to different BMI calculators:

BMI Description
<18.5 Underweight
18.5 – 24.9 Normal
25 – 29.9 Overweight
>30 Obese

Your Body-Mass Index (BMI) is

32.12

BMI = 32.12 kg/m2   (Obese Class I)
normal BMI range: 18.5 – 25 kg/m2
normal weight range for the height: 97.9 – 132.3 lbs

 

To be considered normal I would need to weigh between 100 and 130 pounds.

My goal is to get to 120 Maybe 115.

 

I have actually been moving more since i got my new position.  But not enough apparently!

 

*I plan to cut bad carbs- breads, pasta, rice, potatoes, things like that.

*I also plan to start the apple cider vinegar cleanse ( one tablespoon of Bratts apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water before each meal.)

*Starting T25 tonight

*starting Piyo AND T25 tomorrow (T45 in the morning and Piyo at night)

When I get home I will take a Before Picture. *insert cry Emoji!* and in 25 days I will take an after.

 

I want to hear from you! Who needs motivation and wants to start today with me?!

 

 

Back to it…

I mean I never fell off of working out.. But the diet started yesterday!

SO my boyfriend and I kicked off the 21 day fix. Worst part in that we haven’t taken our before pictures yet.. I NEED TO MAKE SURE I DO THAT!

 

Yesterdays meals:

Breakfast:

Greek lowfat yogurt- 1 red

Blueberries- 1 purple

flax- 1 orange

 

Lunch:

Turkey- 1 red

2 whole wheat wraps- 1 yellow

 

Snack:

sliced cucumbers- 1 green

1 hard boiled egg (with yolk)- 1 red

 

Dinner=

 

Buffalo chicken wrap from d’angelos- not sure the things for this… but I had stuff. The only thing I don’t think was on the list was the buffalo sauce.

 

I didn’t end up working out either.. Just wasn’t feeling it.

 

Put my meal in the app I have- “Lose it” I didn’t even get 1200 calories.. NOT GOOD!!!

 

Today I brought the same thing except an extra egg and an extra cup of veggies (One red and One green)

 

So my goals for the next 21 days:

  • drink all my water (at least 85 ounces)

  • Follow the 21 day fix plan

  • workout 5 times a week

  • 10,000 daily

  • not obsess about the number on the scale

What are your goals? Leave them in a comment!!

Week 2- Arm Day- Day one

I realized I never took a Before picture. So I made sure to take one today.

I only have one arm day technically last week. So not much of a change.

IMG_7650

FitBit Charge HR is on the left arm and my tattoo for my daughter is on the right arm. I have a small one on my left wrist as well.  I feel stronger in my right arm, which makes sense since I am right hand dominant.

I did 3 reps of 10-12 on 30-40 pounds on the machines.  Some were harder, as I got closer to the end, and I didn’t do 3 reps.  I will have to push threw three reps next time.

 

Week One- Thursday

Was supposed to be arm day.  We did cardio for 15 minutes then I met with a trainer to go threw the machines.  Discuss goals and such.

 

Now I have a greater understanding of the machines and my favorite upper body and core machines were the ones I was most intimidated by!
Have you been to the gym and found yourself so overwhelmed? So many machines!!! Where do I start, how do I start, am I doing right?
Well to be honest, if there is a trainer included in your membership utilize it! If its not included and you don’t want to pay for one google it.
I knew from doing my own research I was going to alternate days- upper  and lower.  Every day is cardio and core (Back and Abs).

 

Knowing what you want to achieve ahead of time is your best bet.  I want to lose fat and tone up so I knew I had to do cardio for 30-45 minutes then strength train.

If you are trying to get big, you are going to want to do 5-10 minutes of a cardio to get the blood pumping and then do the strength training.   You don’t want to go straight to strength training. Your muscles are like a rubber band when they are cold they will snap and cause severe damage.  Make sure you warm them up with a little bit of cardio.

 

Enjoy your weekend all!
