Counting is funny

I keep these "day 1" blog pieces. Which are just very funny... because there is rarely anything beyond 4-5 days. But it's a process. I am trying to do 40-1.5hrs of working out 5 days per week. And just trying to eat healthily... fewer binges, more real food, and few desserts-- but I am going to purchase some much needed pumpkin ice cream to keep my sanity :)

Today has been a random mix of food. Lunch was a salad, snack of dried fruit, hard boiled egg and 100 calorie pack of honey grahams... hmmm. Too much perhaps :)

BACK, maybe for real.

Ok. Do you ever have those days when you see some pictures and you realize you just HAVE NOT been on your game and it actually shows? That's what happened to me today. It's time to get back on the healthy wagon. My face is very puffy and the LITTLE changes will help a ton! I am excited to start this trek. I'm also probably going to do the Triathlon anyway... we shall see how it goes. It will be just for fun!

Here we go. LOW sugar, lower carb, lower volume. Salad, veggies, beans and fruit. Starting a new. Losing 10 pounds by Thanksgiving. Let's do it! That is about 12 weeks away. 1 pound per week beginning at 125 lbs for 9/16.

Boo tri, hooray recovery!

So, it turns out the triathlon is probably not going to happen after all. After running about 3 times last week, my hip is back to an unstable state-- helping me to fall off my bike in fact! Blerg. So it's back to a different kind of workout setup that will include cycling, the Shred, swimming, treadmilling, stair climbing and running twice a week at most. Boo hiss silly hip. But I do need the recovery.

So, food! September is a month of GOALS! I am very excited. Here they are:
1. Shred- 6 out of 7 days per week, still keeping the cardio up!
2. 1 dessert per day-- pudding, chocolate chips, whatever but ONLY 1.
3. GRE words- 20 minutes EVERY day! (can be combined with cardio!!)
4. Clean my apartment! This will take some time, but 1 room thoroughly cleaned per week!
5. Track food!

These are exciting goals for me. I also would like to make it a goal to NOT binge for the month. We will see how that goes. I am going to aim for 1300 calories/day.

So far- diet coke. But I'm going to the store to bring Rice Krispies. Milk and bananas into the office for a month of breakfasts.
