Hey Ya’ll!

So today didn’t really go much better in regards to eating. I had to be to work early this morning and I missed breakfast, leaving me famished, which then led to me eating out of the vending machine. Here’s what I ate:

Breakfast: None

Mid-Morning Snack: Ruffles Cheddar Chips (small bag)

Lunch: Chicken Finger Sub (bad choices!!!!)

Mid-Afternoon Snack: None

Dinner: Protein Shake

My work outs went pretty good, so that made up for some of my bad eating today. Here’s What I did:

Back & Biceps:                      Sets                                           Reps

Wide-Grip Pull-Up                 3/3                                   12,10,8/12,10,8

(I did this on the pull down machine since I currently cannot do a single pull-up)

Reverse-Grip Pulldown        3/3                                    12,10,8/12,10,8

Seated Cable Row               3/3                                    12,10,8/12,10,8

Prone Dumbell Row             0/3                                    0,0,0/12,10,8

Barbell Curl                         3/3                                         15/15

Preacher Hammer Curl        3/3                                         15/15


Treadmill HIIT: 20 Minutes

Walk 3.5 MPH 1 Minute

Run 8.0 MPH 1 Minute

Averaged 3.4 MPH for walk and 7.0 MPH for Run

So that was the second day. I really need to get my diet under control. I know that if I actually eat six times a day, I won’t want to eat so much bad food.

Here’s some FITspo to keep us motivated:

Hey guys!

So today was the first day of my effort to live a happier, healthier life. Here’s how it went:

I slept most of the day, although I’m not sure why, so I got a very late start. I bought all the healthy food I could, spending about $70, but I got a lot of food.

I didn’t really follow an eating plan, since I got that late start, so I ended up only having a protein shake, and then some Mac & Cheese with a chicken breast.

My work out went alright, but it was an eye-opener regarding just how out of shape I’ve gotten. I did the following today (This is the work out I will be doing each Monday):

                                            Sets                 Reps
Prone Hamstring Curl:         0/4                    0/12

Tuck-Ups W/ball                 3/3                    15/15

Dumbell Sumo Squats        0/3                     0/15

Leg Extension Machine      3/3                    12/12

Unilateral Leg Press          3/3                     12/12

Curtsy Squat:                    3/3                     12/12

Standing Calf Raises        2/3                      15/15

Seated Calf Raises           0/0                      15/15


3.5 mph for 35 mins, increasing incline from 0% up to 10%, 1% for every 3 mins.

I also took my measurements and before pics, which are as follows:

Weight: 145.8 lbs

Arms: Right: 11 inches     Left: 11 inches

Chest: 39.5 inches

Waist: 32 inches

Hips: 40.5 inches

Thighs: Right: 21.5 inches    Left: 21 inches (yes, apparently my thighs are uneven haha!)

Here are my before pictures:

Hey everyone!

So I made my shopping list based on the book I mentioned in my last post. I am going to go shopping bright and early tomorrow morning so that I can start the plan. Looking at the list, I have a feeling it’s going to cost a lot more than I anticipated, but I guess you will have that when you are eating more than once or twice a day, and it’s not McDonald’s. 

I’m feeling pretty excited about the whole thing right now. I saw myself in the mirror this morning and thought, “My God, have I really let myself go to this point?” I had been doing well back in October and I am really disappointed that I let myself gain all the weight I lost back.

I will be posting my food log and work out log tomorrow, along with some before pics so you can see what I am working with. I find it always motivates me when I can see someone’s before picture and watch them transform, so I think it will be beneficial to have one.

Anyway, here is some FITspo to hold us all over until tomorrow when the real fun begins!

So today was day three (it’s still Thursday despite the time on here, which I can’t figure out how to fix ol). No weight loss yet. 😦 Here’s my work out entry for today:

“I felt very groggy and sore when I woke up today. I didn’t much feel like working out, so I had to pace around my house until I was a little more motivated.

The ‘Shoulder & Arms’ DVD was not as bad as I had thought it was going to be.  I felt really motivated through the whole work out, although I only used a 4 lbs. weight. I hope to eventually get to a 10 lbs. weight.

The ‘Ab Ripper X’ DVD was BRUTAL! It was short, but there were no breaks at all and the exercises were very challenging. I struggled through most of it, which I was surprised by, because my abs used to be my strongest part. I look forward to the day when I can get through the whole DVD.

I am having my protein drink. However, I need to be more careful with my diet. I’m overeating and it’s all junk, so I’m only hurting myself.

Tomorrow is ‘Yoga X’, so it should be a good strength training day!”

So that’s my entry. I had pasta for dinner tonight, which isn’t great, but I’m trying really hard not to snack right now. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up. I work tomorrow, so I’ll be distracted! 😀

Here’s some Abs themed thinspo/fitspo to get you (and me) motivated for tomorrow’s work out, because I know I’ll be sore (especially in the abs)!!!!!!!!!!! I’m thinking Before/After thinspo/fitspo tomorrow!!!

Good luck and see you tomorrow!!!

Ok, so this is technically my second post today, but it is day 2. I just finished my work out and now I’m enjoying my whey protein shake that I hope won’t make me fatter lol. Here’s how today went:

“Today went awesome! I’m so proud of myself! I worked really hard through the video! I only paused it twice, and one time was so that I could get a chair for the exercise. I felt great the whole exercise and I am soo motivated right now!

I am drinking my protein drink so that my body can recover.

This morning I was a lttle sore, which I wasn’t expecting after yesterday’s fiasco. It was actually motivating to feel soreness in my arms, abs, and legs because I felt like I had accomplished something!

I’m looking forward to tomorrow. The work out will be ‘Shoulders and Arms’ and ‘Ab Ripper X’. I think it will be challenging, especially because I really struggle with upper body, but ya gotta work hard to get results!”

*It’s in quotes because it’s from my work out log*

So that’s how today went. Here’s some work out thinspo/fitspo to keep me (and you) motivated!!!

See you tomorrow!
