Hey all, I know it has been a few days. While I am at work, I don’t have very much time and space to workout or anything (okay, I lie. I just don’t have the motivation to workout…) so basically, what I am saying, is that I didn’t workout or have any big news while I was at work.
Anyway, I wanted to share some great news! I am back down to 235 pounds! I started this last month at 254… So, I’ve lost a grand total of 19 pounds! And before you are all like, “That’s not healthy!” I just want to say that 10 pounds of that was water weight (:
Anyway, I am super duper excited (:
That’s my big news for today!
So, I was going to review my experience with oil pulling, but I feel that my sister summed it right up!
Good afternoon all! I am happy to say that once again I am back at it! I’ve been slowly getting back into working out over the past month, but today was the first day in awhile that my motivation gland was working properly! I got up at 7:30 and did an oil pull ( something I will review in a bit and share my sisters post as well). Then it was off to the gym for a spin class.
Now, my gym offers a free spin class (and many other classes) along with my monthly membership! Why I haven’t taken any of them up before now… I… I am embarrassed to join classes because I feel that people judge me. Anywho, I did it! And IT WAS HELL! I loved it, but of course I was the most unfit person there. However, seeing as though I burned 912 calories in an hour, I think I will definitely make it a routine!
I wear a polar FT4 heart rate monitor (something I will also review in a later post) and it kept me going!
So, I just wanted to throw out an update and let you know that this is the real deal! (:
This is my sister in arms! She will be joining the army! Please help support her journey (:
Like I stated in the earlier post, a lot of things have happened since I started this blog. I have been gone for almost a year and a half exactly.
Since early last year, I fell off the bandwagon or working out and eating healthy. I got depressed about my weight an how long it was taking to come off- I gave up. I started working on changing my major an going to school I become a nurse. However, before I started that… I became a Certified Nursing Assistant! I went to school in LA for a few months and came home. After completing my certification, it took a while to find a job, but I landed a great one and started working on college classes. I had decided that nursing was the way to go in the beginning of this year and just finished my first semester (after changing my major) just a week ago! I could only maintain two courses because I work as a live-in CNA in the next town over. So, I cannot to courses on campus. Anyway, I realized after this semester that I still have 12 courses to go, just to finish my pre-nursing courses… So, two classes a semester, for only two semesters a year (because my college cut out online courses for summer)… Would take three years. Then I would have to apply for a four-year college and hope to get into the nursing program- and then do the 3+ years to get my bachelors degree… It would take 6+ years to reach my goal.
As of right now, I go from home to work and back again. That is all my life is… And I am so tired of the monotony. I want to do something great with my life. Save lives, make something of myself, maintain a healthy body, and get an education all in one shot!
So, I realized that I have to reach my first goal- lose weight and join the military! I want to finish this and be something more than I am now! So, once again, I’m back! And I hope you will join and support me on my journey (:
So many things have happened since I stared this blog… Unfortunately I had to tart my Air Force journey all over again. There was a lot of weight gain and loss and it had to get into a career. Making money and going to school become my life for the past year and a half ( I don’t even know how long it has been). Anyway, so much has happened and I have found myself come full circle. Although I wanted to become a nurse an go to school, it is taking (and will take) a long time for me to reach that goal. Life is boring and uneventful. So, here I am back at the starting point! I want to get right back into the grind and get into the Air Force. This is it, the last try- and I will get there this time!
The only thing that is different, is that I am 2 pounds heavier than where I left off. I gained back 20 pound over the last yeah and some-odd months, and I have taken most of that off again! So, starting weight:
I’m sure I lost most of my followers, but I’m back lovelies and ready to get.shit.done!
A quick update: I just ran two miles in 25 minutes 12 seconds!
I know many of you haven’t seen my post about running a mile and a half… But my mile and a half was down to 21 minutes 14 seconds (a few months ago).
I ran an extra 1/2 mile in 4 minutes!
Can you believe it? Me either. (:
Anywho, I have more to tell, but for now I need to shower….and sleep! (:
But I have to keep this shit up (:
Hey all, I know it’s been awhile, but things are going pretty well on my end! I have finally gotten the chance to do my juice fast!
I’ve only been fasting for two days and I’ve lost four pounds! I don’t think I am going to continue though, I want to make sure to get enough nutrients in my system. So, I’ll be adding food in slowly to maintain the 4 pounds!
Everyone says its a bad idea to fast because once you start eating, you gain everything back quickly, but I think it’s been a great way to cleanse my body.
As of right now, I weight 235!!! I have lost a total of 41 pounds! I am extremely excited (:
I still have about 85 pounds to lose to reach my goal weight of 150. (:
Slowly….like a turtle, I will get there! (:
Anyway, I just wanted to throw you a quick update! Hope everyone is doing well!
Write again soon!
This, my awesome people, is a good day (:
Below are the photos from my 20 minute – that’s right – 20 minute workout. And it was a simple, yet powerful, workout that anyone can do at home.
It all started this morning; I was watching Air Force youtube videos, reading Air Force blogs, and thinking of my future!
Then, I stumbled onto a Crossfit video… I was reading about it and all the different WODs they have (Workout Of the Day) and then I watched a few videos of women doing these WODs and thought, “What the hell, I want to do that…and look like her, and her, and her.”
So I found a workout called Cindy (beginner):
As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes-
5 pull-ups ( I did TRX median rows)
10 push-ups (I did inclined because I can’t do that many on the ground)
15 squats (TRX assisted)
* the whole goal is to beat your number of rounds the next time you do the Cindy again!
I was able to do almost 10 rounds in 20 minutes (: I’m proud and my workout was scaled down to fit me…for now! Ill get better (:
Anyway, like I said, anyone can do this workout in their home…there are no excuses!
Hey everyone, I know it has even a few days since you’ve heard from me but I do have good news.
In the last five days I have lost another 3 pounds!
This puts me down to 239. I have lost a grand total of 37 pounds altogether!
Pretty sweet, right?
Although I said I would be doing a juice fast last week, I never did get around to going all juice… I had meat and eggs and juice. But I still would like to get into a juice fast, at least for a couple days! I just wish veggies weren’t so expensive(: well, I wish bacon wasn’t so expensive also…. I guess we can’t always get what we want.
So, I have some veggies left and I’m going to try to start my juice fast today…for at least for 2 or 3 days. I bet I could lose a few more pounds by this weekend!
Other than that, I’ve been neglecting my workouts… However, I just moved out of my house which took the last 3 days and it kept me lifting heavy stuff and moving all day long!
But, I do have to get back to Billy and Tony (Billy Blanks Ultimate Bootcamp & P90X with Tony Horton)
Hahaha anyway, I am super happy to still be dropping pounds, I just wish I could lose a little faster (:
We shall see how the rest of this week goes. Keep you updated (:
