Goals: July 19-25, 2012
  • Consume no more than 1500 calories each day
  • Do some form of exercise 5 days out of the week
  • Complete 30 Day Shred Level 1 on 6 days out of the next 7, or as many times as is physically possible, whichever appropriate
  • Weigh in at 228 by the end of the week

For reference: near the end of June, I made a goal to hit 225 lbs by July 26th, in time for my vacation with my fiance and his family.

I knew that it was entirely possible that I wouldn’t achieve that goal, but I intended to try my hardest and fight for it while still keeping my health and fitness priority number one. I’ve already had two (relatively short) plateaus over the last month — one, where I stayed at 233 for a full week, and two (currently still going), where I’ve remained steady at 230 for going on a week and a half.

Considering the fact that I’ve lost almost 10 pounds over the last two months and 4 pounds over the last four weeks alone, I feel pretty okay with this. Sometimes I get really frustrated (it’s like being SO CLOSE to an achievement in a videogame, except then you can’t get the achievement because NOBODY KNOWS WHY, THE GAME IS BUGGED) but I know that since weight loss isn’t my only goal, it’s not going to do me any good at all to let it get to me.

Speaking of goals, I’ve recently taken a cue from Nerd Fitness (have you read this blog? you should probably read this blog) and figured out what my (physical) Level 50 looks like. I’m honestly pretty excited about it (and nervous? and aghast? and incredulous? and pretty sure I will never, ever succeed?) but I think it can wait until sometime when I’m not half asleep and covered in sweat from my work out.

Goals: July 9-15, 2012

therestisalldrag:

  • Consume no more than 1500 calories each day
  • Do some form of exercise at least 5/7 days
  • Go to the gym and complete a 30+ minute circuit three times or more
  • Add two more sets of lat pull-downs by the end of the week
  • Up each set of sit-ups to 8 reps
  • Weigh in at 227 by the end of the week

This may be a bit more complicated than I’d like it to be — I’ve been going to the gym under my parents’ family membership, but they’re likely switching to a different gym with a different kind of membership schema. I guess I’ll just have to see how it goes?

So far I’m about on track to get to 225 before I leave for vacation on the 26th. I have to keep reminding myself this!!

I’ve been away from Tumblr for a couple of days, so I’m coming in late on the weekly goal check-in. Aaaah sorry~ of course the only person I should really be apologizing to is myself. It’s okay, self! You’re busy, I understand! We’ll do better next time!

This week I’ve done pretty well, but my progress hasn’t exactly been… quantifiable?

  • Consumed 1500 calories or less ALMOST every single day — two bbqs and a movie night threw me off.
  • Did some form of exercise 5/7 days
  • Didn’t get to the gym at all, but I started up on JM 30 Day Shred.
  • Aaaaand so that means I didn’t do any more lat pull-downs…
  • … or increase my number of sit ups on the bench.
  • Also my weight has been holding steady at 230 since the beginning of this last week.

So. Ahem. Not exactly doing well, quantifiably speaking. However, I’ve been getting a B+ or better for my nutrition on CalorieCount every day. I’m learning new things about how I eat, what I need, and how I can get what I need, satisfy what I want, and still stay at a healthy caloric deficit. I’ve done the 30 Day Shred 4 times now and my endurance progress is kind of blowing me away — I went from seriously almost fainting out to ending strong. I’ll be sticking with Level 1 through next Wednesday, definitely.

I took a walk today, 20 minutes for a mile loop around the creek. I came home and did 20 minutes of zumba. I haven’t eaten much today but it honestly hasn’t been a very hollow day. I overdid it a bit over the weekend so I’m thinking I may still have some calories or something stored up? I don’t know how it works, I just wasn’t very hungry and one of my rules is that I only eat when I’m hungry.

My fiance and I are going on vacation with his dad, grandmother, aunt, uncle, and young cousin at the end of July — just about exactly four weeks from now. I’ve been doing well enough, but I’m going to take this and run with it. A concrete deadline to meet some goals!

I’ve been doing quite well at working out three times a week and keeping my caloric intake under 1700 calories a day, so I’m going to up the ante a bit.

  1. Work out for more than 30 minutes three times a week, work out for any amount of time at least five times a week
  2. Keep my caloric intake under 1500 calories at least five days of the week
  3. Take 2 green tea capsules in the morning and 2 after lunch, to improve my metabolism
  4. Paleo meals for dinner at least five nights a week
I have calendar events set for a weekly weigh in on Friday mornings, and a progress photo every Saturday. My weight goal is to lose 8 pounds by the time we board the plane, but that is a goal to work toward rather than a measure of Pass/Fail success. My true measure of success will be that I stuck closely to my plan and that I show improvement in my exercise regimen as well as my progress photos.

Dinner will be baked salmon and steamed broccoli. Ohhh salmon. I love you.

OH MY GODDDD

The last… week and a half? or so have been terrible, fitness-wise. I’ve barely had a chance to go on my usual lunch walk, let alone work out much afterward. I was promoted, which is great, but there’s so much more responsibility and stress!!

I have been able to eat well though, thank goodness. Keeping so busy is helping me stay off boredom-eating.

Needless to say I completely blew my February goal of working out 6 days a week. LOL. Oh well, I just have to make a new goal for March!! :)

March, though, is going to be a little tricky… in the last week of March I’ll be leaving for a two week business trip in India, and won’t have as much control over what I eat. At home it’s a simple matter of stocking up on fruit, almonds, and yogurt, but on the business trip I’ll mostly be subjected to the whims of whatever’s in the Indian office’s cafeteria. (It’s a good thing I like curry!)

So, in March:

First Three Weeks (03/01-03/21)

  • Complete some form of exercise routine 2-3 times during the week
  • Focus on cardio and legs/core during the week — walking, jumping jacks, wall-sits, lunges, body weight squats, planks
  • Complete a more vigorous exercise routine one or more times over each weekend
  • Focus on strength and upper body/core on weekends — push ups, bicep curls, rows, lat pull-downs, planks, crunches, russian twists

Last Week of March, First Week of April (03/22-04/09)

  • While on the business trip, take every opportunity to walk, jog, take the stairs etc
  • Try to get in a quick tabata/tabata-esque work out (or at least some push ups) every evening in the hotel room, when possible
  • Explore and try new things!

When I get back, I have a few plans for my progressive goals — but one thing at a time, right? :)
