Changes Made Are Making An Improvement

Monday, April 15, 2013

March 31 st is when I said to myself "Linda you need ot make some changes if you really want ot win this battle you have gotten a little to comfortable and stuck inside the same ole box to long"

I was eating the same lunch foods daily high sodium lunch meats snacking to much on donut Fridays at work etc was lazy about my strength training Well in all honesty I thought if i just concentrated on my cardio weight would come off that did NOT happen.

So March 31st was my day to get back on track it was a sunday good time to start a fresh. I found a beginner runner strength training routine here at SP I am using that twice a week cardio 3 to 4 times a week. Eating high protein lower sodium (no matter what I do there are days I'm high) High fiber foods first week of doing so I dropped 4.5 pounds 2 week I dropped 6/10 of a pound Knew I wouldn't see that high number on the 2nd week 3rd week well good ole TOM came for a visit but glad he's early as I was really due on Saturday which is my first 5K. So as of today I am up 1.5 pounds emoticon. Drinking more water and flavored water.

I was really hoping ot make my 5% challenge goal weight I was only 1.9 pounds away either way I'm happy with my progress. Last weigh in is Saturday

I still have BLC team Amethyst which goes to the end of May . I will be returning ot 5% Challenge with team Casual Travelers then I am hoping for a spot on BLC22 I'm ready to get back into the race.

    Congrats on making the right changes! How exciting about your 5k! I just completed my second "official" 5k last week. Did the Firefly night run/walk with a fellow SparkPhoenix member. We had a great time. Both of us did intervals of run/walk.

    emoticon Linda!! Love your never give up challenging spirits!! You are so encouraging to me. And you are doing well. I completely agree with hi fiber foods and protein to boost your diet. And as we already know by our heart for must doing strength training. Glad you've find something to work with on SP.
