So this week I only worked out TWICE. Oh my goodness. I had every excuse in the book not to workout this week. I’m not even going to go there. Just need to start fresh tomorrow. So here goes, this is all I did.
*Personal training (boxing & upper body)
Time: 1 hr
This was my last personal training session. Glad to be done at that gym but going to miss the sessions.
Time: 1 hr
Sunday- Day Off
Edited to add:
Miles left to go for April: 35.74 (you’ll see this is the same as last week)
I have a lot of miles to catch up on. Hmmm wonder how this will play out!
Boy that is pathetic! Tomorrow the plan is to hit the ground running and get to the new gym if it doesn’t snow. Seriously snow in April? On hubby’s birthday? In a new car with no 4wd? I’m a mess!
Weighed in earlier this week and the scale read 263-265. Boy I need to get back in the game. I thought it was about 10 lbs less because that’s what I weighed in at the gym. Guess I might need a new scale! Might try the one at the gym to see where it’s at. Didn’t get measurements yet but I will. So you know I don’t like to focus on the scale numbers but I would like to see myself 90 lbs less by next April.
Next up is the food situation. My food choices lately have been up and down. I want to just eat healthy but boy am I hooked on chocolate, onion rings and ice cream. BOO! Need to get all that under control because I really want to feel GREAT every day. Guess it’s time to start keeping a food journal again?
Hoping for a very active and positive week!
My goal is to workout at least 5 days. Depending on the weather, I would like to be at the gym 3x this week (Pilates, boxing, spin, weights) and workout at home the other two.
Do you keep a food journal? If so, what exactly do you keep track of? Do tell!
(TRy this one more time)
I wish I could keep a food journal. I get bored writing every little morsel down and since I’m the only one who looks at it, who cares.
Right now my eating is out of control with chocolate… need to STOP…
As for exercise, need to get back in the loop, especially since I have a 10K in a month’s time.
Totally agree about getting bored writing it down BUT I think that will help me stay on top of why I’m not losing and why I’m gaining. I doubt I’ll write every little thing like mints, etc. I’ll start with meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner plus snacks.
Please come back and let us know how your 10k goes.

Sorry was in the middle of a comment, clicked something – lost it.
I was reading your post and it made me think I should go back to using a food journal, it’s worked for me in the past but you’re right it’s so boring!
It has helped me to view food choices like a credit card bill – I’m not allowed to ‘spend food calories’ unless or until I deposit a ‘fitness factor’ BEFORE I ‘cash in’ the calorie check.
Even so, I know I will probably find it hard to write it all down but then I realized “there has to be an app for that.” It seems there are a few, but looks like Calorie Counter from Fat Secret – Android Market might be a good one as it has a food diary, fitness diary it will also track your weight goals and even has a bar code scanner for nutritional labels, all right there on your phone. I’m sure there are similar apps for iPhone users too. I’m thinking this may work well for me as my phone is always on and always on me, so I’m going to give it whirl.
Thanks Angie, for inspiring me to get back to keeping a food journal!
Deb, love the credit card food analogy. That is perfect! Thank you for the Fat Secret Calorie Counter app suggestion. There is one for iPhone so I’ll take a peek. So many apps, I don’t know what to choose.

I don’t keep a food journal. I think it would take all the fun out of a healthy lifestyle. To be honest, I eat healthy generally, but don’t sweat it when I veer from the usual healthy routine.
About missing a frew workouts, I wouldn’t sweat it. It happens. The fact you made it twice is good. Your momentum will continue. It’s skipping for a month that is dangerous because it’s hard to get back into that momentum of regularly working out.
