Hi folks! I know, I know. You are wondering “Who is this strange beast that has come up suddenly on my reading list?” Yes, I realize. I have been sporadic and gone for long periods of time, but I miss you guys. Sincerely. I am hoping you will take me back as I search to get re-motivated and tell you all about my wonderful weight loss (that has been neither wonderful or loss lately… more emphasis on the weight). During my vacation to Disneyland and getting the flu right afterwards, I managed to gain 10 pounds.
Pounds. 5 weeks of work gone in 2 weeks. But, I did not get depressed my friends. No. I did not. I got motivated. I got a FitBit! I started going to the gym regularly and I made some freaking goals. My weight is currently at 188 after a week and a half of getting back on track and going to the gym 3 times a week and horseback riding 2 to 3 times a week. My Fitbit definitely helps keep me motivated and aware of my activity throughout the day. Even if I do not have a big work out, I still manage to go on walks because I want my step count to go up!
School has been busy, but I have actually been thriving in it. My grades are fairly stable, and I am looking at ending the semester with a pretty nice GPA. Also on the horizon, I am planning on having my very first show season with my horse. Hopefully everything goes well there, and it is good motivation to keep me active and working towards strengthening the bond between woman and horse. Or something like that.
For weight loss, my goal is to lose 1.5 – 2 pounds a week by Friday.
For the gym, I want to get my work out time to 50 minutes. And run 3 miles on the treadmill.
I want to stay within my calorie goal and also detox from refined sugars starting today.
What are your plans for the week? Lets keep each other motivated!
I also plan on blogging more — so prepare yourself! The crazy may possibly be back.
