Weighed in at the gym yesterday (Saturday April 30th) and in the last 2 weeks I have lost 6 lbs. I forgot to check in last week and hopefully I’ll remember to do it every week now. I am not stressing over the pounds but I do have a goal to be at my goal weight by April 2012. Currently I weigh 259 and my goal weight is 175 so I have 84 lbs that I am looking to lose. I’ll be using the scale at the gym so that it stays consistent. The reason I’m posting this is for accountability. I really need the push to get back on track in a major way! That’s all!
My new Polar watch came last weekend so I was able to use it all week. I’m excited to have a heart rate monitor back. I know I work much harder when I wear one. I got the woman’s FT60 and it’s a beautiful watch. When I saw the watch online it looked like it had pink swirls and I’m just not into pink but I was happy to see that it’s a peach color instead. The Polar flow link makes it so easy to upload all my workouts to polarpersonaltrainer.com. This weeks workouts were really good. Not great but I feel happy about all I accomplished.

Tuesday- Sick day
*Turbo Jam Cardio Party Mix 2 (DVD workout)
Time: 45 min.
So I was wondering the last few days why in the world my calorie burn was so low. We figured out that I had an incorrect setting on my new Polar HR monitor so I should be good to go.
*Walk Away the Pounds Big Burn (DVD workout)
Time: 31 min.
Calories burned: 486
*Turbo Jam 20 Minute Workout (DVD)
Time: 20 min.
Calories burned: 291
Really didn’t feel like working out today but knew that I needed to at least do something so I picked this workout. Glad I did it. All of a sudden though my right foot felt like it expanded 10x and hurt so bad but I kept on doing what I could. After a while it felt fine. I think I need new shoes. Still wearing my running shoes that I had for the half marathon. Bad me!
Calories burned: 1159
The calorie burn will probably be lower next week, setting was a bit off on my Polar but not by much I don’t think. We’ll see. Still it was anywhere between 850-1000. Not bad!
I did not accomplish all the April goals I set for myself. Hopefully May will be better.
My healthy living goals for May:
Exercise 5 days a week!
Do weights/strength 3x week (at home and/or gym)
Do not eat after 9 PM (except for on late gym nights)
What are your May goals?
