Weekly Summary

I have been eating healthy this week (much better than last week). I’m still struggling with doing the BeFit in 90. I’m struggling with getting myself to do it as well as trying to complete it. I did take Peanut for a walk today and I hope to take her for more walks this week. We had a great time and we took food for Hubby’s uncle to eat. I’m getting much better than last week but I’m still finding it hard to stay motivated. But I’m trying 🙂

Weekly Summary

I am so happy I lost another 2 pounds. I didn’t think I would since this past week has been terrible for my workouts. As I said in my previous posts, I have been sick all week. I finally felt good enough yesterday to start doing it again. I missed working out so much during the week. I was happy to do it again. I look forward to continuing my BeFit in 90 this week.

I ate pretty well this week. I mainly ate oatmeal and homemade soup since I was sick. I did eat a few sugary snacks this week. More than I should have. I’ll try better this week to stay away from them.

I will be trying to use metric measurements as well as standard from now on. I might forget to do it sometimes but I’ll try 😀

Goals from previous week

Do the BeFit in 90 workout each day as instructed yes!
Add more cardio throughout the week yes!
Drink lots of water (even more since its hot) heck yes!

Total Weight Loss: 18.5 pounds

Weekly Summary

As I said in this post, I had a bad dietary week and it showed. I’m really disappointed but this will give me the kick in the butt I need to find ways to eat healthy without irritating my stomach. I admit I am frustrated but I am not giving up. I refuse to give up. It is not an option.

I have been looking at a few websites including helpforibs.com. One thing I have already started is eating more soluble fiber and more protein. Hopefully this will help as I continue to find the best way to eat healthy for me. Yes, for ME. What is great for one person is not always great for another. I just have to continue to try until I find what works for me. It might take me years to figure it out and that’s okay. As long as I continue to try my best every day and work towards being healthy, that’s all that matters.

Anyway, I did great with my workouts and adding extra cardio. I will continue working out. I love it. I love the feeling after a great workout 🙂

Weekly Summary

I normally don’t and won’t change my weekly goals. I did change them this week though. Sunday, I read a post about a Befit challenge. I asked the author of the post a few questions and looked it up. After viewing the videos and trying it out on Monday morning, I decided I am going to do it. Since it was only a day after making my goals and I knew I was going to try this program, I decided to change my goals to accommodate the program. I knew there was a very slim chance of making my weekly goals and this new program. Not to mention, I didn’t want to overdo it on the first week trying it.

The fitness program is called BeFit in 90 challenge. The basic concept behind the program is using a mixture of warm-up, strength training, cardio and cool-down workouts to get fit in 90 days. You always have to do a warm-up and cool-down (that I’ve noticed so far haha) and the cardio/strength training workouts change depending on the day. The workouts are difficult but manageable. The program gives you two rest days as well so your body can recover. I really enjoy doing it. I have problems with the one cardio workout as I explained in this post but otherwise, I like the burn I get from BeFit in 90.

Even though I have been doing this workout, I still managed to go on walks. I am just not walking quite as much. I walked 5.92 miles this week. It’s not too bad considering I’m doing cardio in my workouts. I have been drinking even more water to make up for the amount of water I have been sweating. I have also noticed these workouts have been making me super hungry afterwards (always a great sign it’s working). I have been making sure to eat healthy foods after I workout like grapefruit (yum!) to keep me feeling full and energized.

I will be keeping the same goals this week as last week until I get use to this new program. It takes a lot out of me. I do hope to walk more this week as long as the weather permits. Hope everyone has a great week. I’ll be posting when I can 🙂

Weekly Summary

The weather this week was really crappy. It rained most of the week so I couldn’t walk as much as I wanted to. I still managed to make it to my ten mile mark though! 🙂

  • Sunday- 3.78
  • Monday- 1.36
  • Tuesday- Rest day
  • Wednesday- 1.08
  • Thursday- 2.10
  • Friday- 1.51
  • Saturday- 2.43
  • Total miles= 12.26

I just LOVE doing Zumba! I will definitely be doing it more often. Unfortunately, I did another Zumba workout instead of the target area workout because I had so much fun doing it. Its no excuse though and I will try harder next week. Step aerobics is kicking my butt but I really enjoy doing it and it makes me sweat like nobody’s business! haha

I only measured my navel today and I lost TWO inches!!! Woohoo!!!!! This is great since I didn’t lose any weight this week (but at least I didn’t gain any). I believe I gained some muscle due to the added exercises I did this week. Seeing how many inches I lost at my navel makes me tempted to take all my measurements but I haven’t decided yet. I have even lost a pant size.

A friend told me she can tell my face has gotten thinner. The compliment really means a lot to me. It’s reassuring to have friends notice changes as well.
