Hello and Happy First Day of Summer!!!
Today was a successful and accomplished day! I’m writing this between 2 baseball games so I’ll be quick!
Last weekend our family went camping for 2 days with my brother and his family. When I say camping I mean 40 minutes away up a beautiful canyon sleeping in tent trailers and having my brother and his wife cook for us! I love camping so much! (: I did contribute the SMORES which I have to admit I went a little overboard!! I really need to kick the habit of pigging out on the weekend. This is the funniest thing! One of my healthy challenge participants emailed me her weight loss success on her Garmin!! It’s FANTASTIC!!
Now take a look at mine!
What the heck is wrong with me!? That giant spike is 3 days! Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (: I have to say though I don’t believe it’s all REAL weight, whatever that means, because when I get home I lose about a pound a day for a few days! SOOOO my new goal for the rest of the year is… to only have 3 TREAT days a month! I have officially murdered my New Year’s Goals so now that I’m half way through the year I’m only going to work on this ONE goal! I think that was my problem, I had too many goals! What I really want to work on is recording EVERYTHING in MY FITNESS PAL. When I want to eat too much of everything, I don’t record it (: I don’t think I could handle seeing 5000 calories on one day! I have also been ULTRA diligent with my Jamie Eason weight workouts. Haven’t missed a day in 3 weeks except for last Saturday when we were hiking! And once again after a strict clean diet, weightlifting is where it’s at! I really need to cut out cardio next week because my stupid achilles pain flares up every time I do cardio! I sat down and mapped out my SUMMER WORKOUT SCHEDULE! This is like Christmas for me (: Some days I’m sure it won’t be this exactly.
MONDAY: Track weight workout/High Fitness
TUESDAY: Weights/High Fitness
THURSDAY: High Fitness/Weights
FRIDAY: Weights/High Fitness
On some of those non running days I will add 20-30 minutes of interval sprints on the treadmill. When I say weights, I work a different muscle group every day.
This is an example:
Saturday: Back/Rear Delts
O.K. Summer is much easier for me to workout since I don’t have to worry about my 6 year old. He has brothers and sisters galore to play with him. I thought of something so PROFOUND the other day. I discovered that when I start to crave something that is not very healthy to eat, it is because I AM HUNGRY!! Amazing! So!! What do I do? I stop what I’m doing a grab some food out of the fridge and eat yummy healthy food! After that I am fine and I forget about my cravings! So, EAT!! Just for fun, here is what I ate today from My Fitness Pal!
I only have one small body fat percentage point I want to lose! I’ll post the whole page of this body composition deal they do at the gym! It’s interesting and motivating!
Well, I need to be off! I’ll end with pics from the trip!! So FUN!! We especially LOVED the hike to Lake Mary and were surprised by all the snow!! Ha Ha!!
