Week 3- Day 4

Elliptical: 550 calories burned
Power walk & jog: 1 hr

So I got my walk in bright and early this morning before the sun came all the way out. It felt great outside. A nice breeze was blowing away the sweat ahh I loved it. I get in my zone when I have my music playing in my ears. I'm running further each day. I set a goal to make it to the bush that's a little far ahead of me and once I start going i won't allow myself to stop until I'm there. I don't speak out loud but my mouth is moving and I'm telling myself that I can do it. Once I reach that goal, I begin to walk again for a minute, then set another. I was very happy with my workout today. When I returned home I just couldn't bare to do the YogaX video. I stared at it for about 10 minutes before I decided no way. I do enjoy yoga but this is a different kind. Very hard, and way too boring and LONG. I just don't get it. I will have to find another yoga video to do in place of that one. Since I had so much energy I decided to do Plyometrics again. I do love that workout. When I began chronicling my journey I had no idea there were so many blogs out here with people doing the same. I am blown away everyday and have to pull myself away from blog reading to get some work done. I'm learning a ton of new things and recipes HOW I LOVE THOSE. This is my first time losing weight this way-naturally. I had always relied on weight loss pills so I need all of the info that I can acquire. I had a great day and hope everyone elses day was just as great or greater. =)

Breakfast: 1/2 cup protein smoothie, 1 banana nut vitatop
Lunch: 1 bowl of melons with a cherry on top (1 cup watermelon, 1 cup honey dew melon & 1 cup cantaloupe)
Dinner:  4 oz sirloin, 9 brussel sprouts, 1/2 cup quinoa, 1 triple chocolate chunk vitatop
Snacks: 1 pk 100 calorie Emerald almonds, 1/2 cup Ocean Spray 100% unsweetened cranberry juice

Found this pic taken 5 yrs ago. It was labeled 130 lbs. This is the size I am determined to get back to.


  1. You will get there. Keep doing what you do girl.

    I love getting up early and walking. I need to start doing that again. I live like 5 minutes from the beach and LOVE walking along the boardwalk. I'm pretty sure you inspired me to wake up tomorrow!


  2. I am impressed with all of your hard work. You encourage me to workout more. Day by day. You'll get to your goal. (That's what I keep telling myself too. : )


Thanks for stopping by!
