Eat, Shrink & Smile.


Just another weblog

Update #10

Sorry I was MIA for a moment there.. I started a new job. I’m excited for a new job, because now I can finally have money. Its not the best hours.. So I’m still looking for something better, or something else to go along with it.

I’m not letting this job thing get in the way of my gym time! The day of my last post, I didn’t go to the gym, but I did do a hour of p90x with my boyfriend. It was kinda hard for me to keep up with the tape!

Today I did go to the gym!

  • 25 minutes HIIT on the elliptical
  • 35 minutes – 6 incline – 3.0/5.0 speeds – Treadmill

In total I did 4 miles! Bringing me to 10.5/2010. I’m not going to lie, I know I’m totally behind. Even though just 4 days into March I have made a few mistakes with my diet, I’m not allowing anymore. I’m going to be in control! Remember, I’m doing this journey for me! So control is important!

Question for any readers.. Do you prefer to workout in the morning, or in the evening?

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 # 2

30 Minutes Elliptical

20 Minutes Running

So, the gym was quick again today. I really want to spend more then “1 Hour” there, but I had to rush home to look after the puppy. Excuses eh! The elliptical is getting pretty good, I love that workout. According to the machine I had burned about 300 calories, and I didn’t look at the running, but phew. I can’t run for the life of me. Tomorrow I think I might make the majority of my workout on the treadmill. I want to be able to run!

I haven’t weighed myself in about a week.. I am waiting til tuesday to do that. I really hope I see something different.. Even though I’ve been eating not as well, I am doing exercise which wasn’t part of the picture last time.

PS – Canada VS USA game was just disappointing. I wish Canadians did better! Ugh.

Eat, Shrink & Smile.

Welcome to my little part on the web.. Its also my weightloss blog.

I need help keeping motivated, and what I need help with is eating, shrinking, and keeping smiling (Grammar? I dont care). And what the title is, its exactly what I want to do.

Currently I’m overweight.. I weighed in at the gym with 238.5! Gross! I don’t feel like a fat person.. I know thats stupid to say, but there is people who are happy to be fat. I don’t look at myself at fat, but the scale says otherwise!

I want to try and lose 10 pounds a month, I don’t know if thats really realistic, But I will try! I go and exercise at least for one hour a day (today was a rest day 😦 ) and have currently been doing this for a week or two?

I am truely doing this for appearance issues. I have crazy insecure.. I just want to ‘feel’ beautiful, and being skinny, or skinnier is really something I think I need to do that. Disagree? I don’t care, this is my journey.

Well, theres my short intro.. So lets get started. I hope to maybe meet a few friends while I do this.. and I hope i’m successful!
