I finally broke 200 lbs! The last weigh in said 193!! That's 22 lbs in 12 weeks. Feeling very excited about all this hard work. Watching what I eat really matters. How hard I work out matters. Its all coming together!!

This past Monday I got a call from the trainer... He's moving back home to the bay area. 😥  I can financially do one more month with the trainer and he tells me he's moving. I was a huge mix of emotions. I started the training cuz he sounded (and looks) like he knows what he's talking about. I was gonna just hop on the machines and hope for the best. He showed me a couple other things and I was hooked on fitness. I even did some at home & my sister's house. I kinda felt like he was giving up on me. And then I went through the cycle of not wanting to continue this journey anymore. Just call it done and just maintain the weight.
I ate a donut. I had 4 pieces of pizza. I had 2 pieces of fried chicken. I ate a slice of chocolate cake. I had two cups of soda.... I went crazy!

The gym gave me a different trainer (who is just as hot as the last...if not more 😉). I decided to give him a try. It was good. I sweat my ass off, but it wasn't the same. I unfortunately woke up with this annoying cough and sore throat so I didn't work out today. Nor did I step on the scale to see how much I have gained in my downward cycle of a week.

I'm scheduled for monday, so I hope I'm feeling better by then. Good thing there aren't any plans this weekend. In going to rest up. I'm going to keep this wt loss thing! I started this journey for me. To be healthy for me. There are going to be bumps in the road to success, losing a good trainer may be one of those bumps. Doesn't mean I need to give up on myself. I've come off my high horse and am going to keep pushing.

Tomorrow will be 5 weeks at the gym. I'm nervous for the weight part. Some people have started to notice but i don't.  And i know i could be much more strict when it comes to eating. If i cut out the pasta and hamburgers it would be much easier to drop weight. If i also go to the gym everyday instead of 2-3xs a week it would be much easier to drop weight.  I know what I'm doing wrong...or sabotaging my goals, but i also feel that having these things once in a while won't kill me! Pizza and fast food, on the other hand, will completely ruin my goal.

I heard a quote the other day from Jackie Robinson "it's not hard to be good... it's hard to be good everyday" and although he's talking about talent and baseball, i take it as eating right and working out. It means so much to so many different things.

I have one more month with the trainer.  I've learned a few things,  but I'm still at that point where i don't push myself hard enough.  Up on the treadmill i can push it out...but floor exercises are different.  Once the pain comes i wanna give up. And if I'm on my own I'll stop. With the trainer there to hold me accountable i push further.
I'm hoping this next month i can learn how to push through the pain on my own. Or at least feel the passion for wanting to push further.

I guess if i really think about it, i guess i could say i eat the more carb foods after I've done an awesome workout. Therefore not really feeling the results. If i can learn how to say no and buckle down on nutrition,  then I'm sure the results will be greater. Therefore giving me the drive to push harder...

Challenge created: 3-4 lbs a week or minute planks. I know the trainer will not push me to lose 4 lbs in a week, however, maybe i can tell him to push planks. ...oohhh burpees!  Add to the burpee reps!  That'll motivate me.

I finally started running again.  2 mins on and 2mins off for 20minutes.  And that was after doing incline for 20minutes!  It felt so good to run again.  Think i may have to take the dog out this Saturday

Challenge accepted

And exceeded.  Not only did i lose the pound the trainer challenged... i lost 4 pounds!! Eating better and pushing myself to go to the gym have paid off.  Now if i can keep the same mentality for the rest of the year...

I quit!

It's about that time. It's been 14 years and 10 years that the weight started to go up. 

Things should be fairly easy come may 1st. My expectation is to be at goal wt by new years.  V said that's a long time from now... but i know if i do it right, I can be goal wt forever.

I have been challenged by the trainer... he's for a week and i gotta work out on my own :(  he said if i don't lose a pound then my planks are pushed up to a full minute.

So what have i been doing?  Practicing my planks!  I finally got a full 30seconds even after working out my legs.

Eating right is the easy part. Ok.  No its not,  but just to lose ONE pound it is easy to do with just eating right. And the weekends are the hardest time to eat right.
At work,  i can only eat what i bring. And is easy to bring good stuff. It also helps when the bank account is running low.

This morning scale said I'm down... but i still have 4days before the actual weigh in.

Day 98

Finally joined a gym! And got myself a cute personal trainer!  Modivation is the fact that I've paid money... not going isn't an option.

12 days later and I've lost 5 lbs!! My goal for this month is to lose 5lbs and I'm on my way to beating this goal. 

I've been so busy with working out and logging my foods and working and sleeping that i forget to blog. But now that things are looking in the right direction, I'm proud to brag!
