Ok … so, before I get into my goals here … I gotta ask. WHAT IS UP? Why aren’t any of you talking with me?? Do I smell bad? Did I say something offensive??? I mean seriously I am starting to get a complex.
I lost weight when I thought I was gonna gain–THAT WAS EXCITING–in case you missed that point. I’m just sayin’ is all! Nobody Celebrated with me!?!?! I lost weight while lifting. That was a Major Accomplishment.
Why is losing a 1/2 a pound exciting? I am so glad you asked–I thought you were gonna make me push my life on you or something even more vapid. A.n.y.w.a.y. … Lifting weights usually equals weight GAIN for me. I sometimes remain in a stalled position that usually goes up from a fixed point, but NEVER DOWN. So this chick is happy, and where are is all the celebration?? HUH? I wanna know? I am all broken up over here that everyone iggied my massive accomplishment. (Winking over here)
This leads into my goals. What were they last week?
- To lift 2x’s–Made that–made some new personal bests too. 😀
- To take Pilates Reformer 2x’s–I did it–limping but I did it.
- Run/Jog 3x’s–I did this but no new gains were made really.
- Journal–well I did 4 out of 7 days–kinda stunk on that one.
- Eat Clean and on plan–I did this 4 out of 7 days–kinda BIG time stunk on this one.
I have the same plan for this week, and I will let you know on Tuesday if I made good progress or not. I lifted heavier weights on some of my machines this week, which makes the 1/2 pound loss even more fun. I plan to try some free weights later in this week, so the weights and body parts I work on will be different and hopefully good for creating muscle confusion.
I am about to start making a plan for the Martindale Triathelon–anyone out there who could offer good suggestions on where to find good info on training for a 7 mile run, a 16.5 mile ride, and a 5.5 kayaking race would be appreciated. I may not be able to do the whole thing by myself, but I really want to.
A Note: Journaling–I must speak about this–when one forgets to journal, one loses track of what goes into one’s mouth, and this makes it nigh-unto-impossible to lose weight.
How do you know if you ate too little or if you ate too much? You don’t, and trying to remember that is almost impossible; not accurately anyway. Calories can add up fast and get your life competely off focus. Even if you are training hard, you want to make sure that you consume the MOST nutrient dense foods you possibly can for the best health and recovery from all your attempts to stretch your body to its limits. The idea is to play hard, eat well, and enjoy life–not to get sick or make my body weaker. Journaling is the way to keep myself focused on my goals and not emotional whims. It is hard to tell yourself just one more brick of chocolate won’t hurt when you record the info with the calories in whatever journal you use. I use loseit.com.
Well, that is gonna be all for now on the goals …. Come on now guys. STOP iggyin’ me! Don’t make be beg — Show me some love! Talk to me … Ya hear ….S
