Week 2 Day 5 (28 days to go)

Weigh in :  262.0

So my weight is ever so slowly going down.  almost 9 lbs down in 10 days.  I can't really be upset with that, but I am beating myself up because I have not been perfect!  I am realizing this is my biggest area that needs to be fixed.  I do not have to be perfect. Perfect is boring anyway!  I was boxing last night - sparring for the second time since the Christmas break, and I am getting pretty darn good.  I'm not perfect but I am getting better every day..... same goes for my weight loss. I am getting better every day. Finding ways to stretch out my calories to make up three decent meals.

Today is another day - I'm gonna go for it.

Week 2 Day 3 (30 to go)

Today's weigh in 263.2  (weight loss to date 7.6)

Feeling good about this.  Last nights workout was brutal, but I have not really felt hungry.  Hopefully I am back on track.  Going to make this week count.... I feel as though even if I only lost 7.6 lbs each week for the next 3quarters I will still lose 30 lbs for the month.  I KNOW I can do better than that. 

I am going to make an appointment to go and see my weight loss counsellor this week  I think it will help to allow me to let go of last week and make a plan for this week.

On a lighter side...

I was watching road racing yesterday. It was a huge race taking place in Italy and while not particulary a huge fan of cycling, I was interested in the riders endurance. They are basically riding for 6 hours up a mountain. I believe it was the Italian Dolomites (which I fondly remember from a trip to Europe years ago). I found it interesting the way the fans interacted with the riders, basically running along side them and cheering them on. Many wore helmets or clown wigs in various coulours and at some points on the road, the crowds were so big I was amazed that the riders could get through. Anyway, a friend of mine called and we were chatting and I was watching the t.v., but not fully paying attention, you know what I mean. And then it happened. At first I wasn't sure what I was seeing, if it was an old clip or what, but it soon became apparent that it was happening before my eyes, and I have watched the clip a thousand times, and crack up every single time.
(NOTE: it was nice to see the winner, in a very exciting time trial to end the race, was a Canandian, and it was the first time a Canadian had ever won this race - woo hoo)
OK, here is the video - enjoy

Week 2, Day 2 (31 to go-make em count)

Weight 266.4

Ok, so my weight is going the wrong way.  I am about ready to give up, and it has nothing to do with the program. I'm not hungry..... this morning I'm thinking  "what the fuck is wrong with me".

Going to try and reel it back in today. Although at this point I'm not even sure the diet will work because I was eating "normal" for the last 3 or 4 days.  I have started the day with a good solid breakfast and lunch and dinner is planned out.... Time to try and execute the plan. 

This week I am going to try and incorporate some more exercise.  Last week I boxed Monday and Friday.  This week my goal is Boxing Monday, Wednesday, Friday. and some other light cardio (even walking) on Tuesday and Thursday.

Evening Update:  it's now 9:49 p.m  I am totally on target with calories with 517 used.  I have drank about 2.5 quarts of water, taken the detox, thyroid and Hgl, and I just came home from the gym after doing 15 minutes of cardio on the elliptical machine followed by 60 minutes of intense boxing workout, which included  30 minutes of one on one sparring and 30 minutes of intense bag work... I was so close to puking at the end, I just collapsed on the ground trying to catch my breath.... I easily burned 1000 calories tonight

I am feeling satisfied that I was successful today..... I AM A SUCESS...... I got this!

Weight : 265.3

Not a great start to the program. This week has to be better!

Phase II Day 6(34 to go)

Weigh in this morning 265.3

Disaster last night. Ate carbs :(

Today, no matter what, I will have a sucessful day!

Thursday, January 8, 2015

Phase II, Day 5 (35 to go)

Weight 233.4 (gain)

Need to reel it back in.  up 2lbs this morning. yesterday was a on plan from morning until about 7:30 when I got home after a stress filled day.  Ate dinner and then 3 or 4 tbs of peanut butter! 

NEED to have a good day today.  Did not get to work out last night. Since evening seems to be the problem, will make sure to go out tonight,  to the gym, not to G's place.

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Phase II, Day 4 (36 to go)

weight: 261.4

Bad day all around.  Relationship stress, work stress

Ended up with 3 rounds of the absolute worst diarrhea I've had in a very long time.  Not sure if it's from the stress, or from my IBS acting up because of the change of diet, or the detoxing pills and veggie greens I am taking as part of this program.  Or if I'm just getting rid of all of the fat laden foods that I ate for the two days prior to starting Phase II.  Hopefully I will be better today, both my digestive track and my eating.  Will try to flush all the bad eating out of my system with lots of water today, but I have knocked myself out of ketosis (if I was in ketosis, I hadn't checked yet).

In the end I am happy with my progress, I am gonna let yesterday's binge slide and try and find other ways to cope today.   I am boxing tonight so I shouldn't have a problem, since I won't have any food around me tonight. 

Of Note today:

Phase II Day 3 (37 to go)

Definitely feeling tired this morning, my headache has not completely subsided but feels a little better today.  Currently cooking some ground been. Don't think I can do fish again today.  Thinking ground beef with spinach leaves. 

Starting to re-think the boxing during the 500 calorie phase... I feel like it really wiped me out.  Will try Wednesday and Friday and see if I feel the same and will make a decision on whether to switch to weights for the next month.

Phase II - Day 2 (38 to go)

 Weight : 265.6

Totally was not expecting a 5lb drop on the first day, but hey, I'm not complaining.  Still have the remnants of a headache, which I will chalk up to detoxing.  Did not sleep fantastic last night, and woke up 3x to pee.  I'm told that the 4 quarts of water will help flush the toxins out of my system. 

Today I ended the day taking in 534 calories, but I worked out tonight - 60 minutes of boxing.... pretty high cardio (because I have been  off for the last two weeks) I would think my 1 hour session burned approx. 600 - 700 calories. 

I have been right on with my drops, and pills and today I drank 4 quarts of water (1 big cup of Green tea is included in that figure).  It will be interesting to see if the workout and the going slightly over my calories will impact my weight tomorrow. I took a look tonight and it is exactly the same as what it was this morning.  It generally drops a  bit overnight. These changes are exciting. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.

Phase II, Day 1 of 40 - Here we go

This mornings weight - 270.8

Woke up with a headache, possibly because of the rain outside, possibly because of the crap I have been eating for two days.... off to the grocery store to pick up the food that I need for this week.

Had a black coffee this morning and 1 scoop of the Dynamic greens (chocolate flavour) which wasn't bad at all......  took my thyroid pill and my detox pill, and one 1/2 dropper of Hcg.  

Woot woot, here we go, official "before" pics.  they are actually not as bad as my original "before" pics(ok trying to find a positive in a very hard negative situation).  I will try and post updated pics weekly and hopefully there will be a big difference. 

Today, day 1 has been a pretty good one... I made one slip up and had coconut milk.  It was a mistake, and I dumped the rest of the carton down the drain.

P1,D2 - Fat Load

Fat loading is messing with my head today, something weird about being on a diet and eating as much fat as you possibly can, but I will go with the flow even though I feel sick.  I set my cell phone alarm for every waking hour to take my HCG drops and took my detox pills.  This is just the beginning.  I feel fine, there are no apparent changes after the first day.  My plan for today is to do a light workout at the gym, clean out all of the unhealthy things from my kitchen(I don't want sugar and pop and that type of stuff in the house) and do a grocery shop and start to prep my food for the coming week. My scale still shows me at 270 this morning, and actually dipped slightly into the 260, but settled at 270. I expected to be up a bit. 

Going to post some before pictures today, so I can see my progress as I go along.

Back at it

Well it's January 1, so I guess that's what drew me back to this page.  Last year started off full of promise, I got down to 230lbs ad was looking and feel great.  Then I injured my back, finally broke up with my guy of 5 years, went through a health scare, and went through a particularly stressful year at work and.... yada, yada yada.

Bottom line - I'm back.  healthy but heavy, but back, and ready to recommit.

A few goals for this year:

- To be at goal weight  (160 lbs)
- To be ready to fight (and best case scenario, have a boxing match completed)
- To feel confident enough in myself to be in a long term relationship (overcome trust and self confidence issues)
- Be eating clean
- compete in at least 1 triathlon  
- compete in at least 1 powerlifting competition  
- overcome flexibility issues 

I will add to this list by the end of this year...

Will do my initial weigh in tomorrow morning (just bought a new scale today).  I will be starting the NutrihCG diet plan on Saturday and will be posting about how I feel and the changes to my weight/body/energy etc.  

Phew, i am excited to get started.  Gonna make this an amazing year.  Will finish with a New Year quote I posted on facebook today:

    “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
    Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.
    So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze..., don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
    Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.
    Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
    ― Neil Gaiman
