Update #7

I almost didn’t get up and go to the gym today. I got there pretty late.. at 12pm. Compared to other days when I’m there first thing in the morning! But, I have been staying up way later. 😦

Elliptical Intervals – 35 minutes

BRISK walking @ speed 4 – 10 minutes

I had meant to walk longer, and work my way up to a jog but didn’t.  Over all I did another 3.5 miles. So that makes total 6.5/2010. Lets just say we still have a long way to go!

I’m still doing the fruit thing.. My grandma is worried I’m ‘starving’ myself, but I really don’t see it that way. From about when I wake up to 5pm (When we have dinner), I get my fruit.veg intake. Today I had an apple, banana, raspberries, and peaches. I basically just eat as much fruit as I want, and it is 100% a better intake then what I had been snacking on before (Chips. High Calorie Sandwichs. TREATS.) For dinner I had prime rib, a small potato, and a large carrot.

Afterwards I was CRAVING that DQ Blizzard. You know, a small blizzard is anywhere from 500-1000 calories. Thats seriously ONE WHOLE workout just to rid of the blizzard.

I ended up getting this guy which is 290 calories a bar. For now I’ll take it… Its better then the extra 450 calories DQ would have awarded me.

Update #4

30 minutes HIIT on the treadmill. Ran nearly 2miles!

Before anyone says anything about my weak workouts, remember I’m 238 pounds. I walked + ran nearly 2 miles (like 1.82), carrying my 238 pounds. It was hard, but it also felt really good. I wasn’t able to keep going after my last sprint.. so I hope soon I can go longer.

I think I might do the C25K.

Weight Loss Update..

I have lost 2 pounds. To tell you the truth, I’m kinda disappointed. I have been doing the gym thing for a good 2 weeks, and from going to 0 physical activity to a lot I was really hoping to lose more. I think I will blame my eating habits this week for that, which makes me more determined for next week. My family leaves today, so no excuses now.
