6/10 Water great, rest day from workout. Went a little off cleanse today and boy did I feel it! It was my nephew's b-day party so I had some fajita meat, 2 flour tortillas, some shedded cheese, and sour cream. Just a little off plan but man my body wasn't happy! Dude, I was crampinghttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifLuckily we had to leave early, so no cake and ice creamhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley19.gifhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

Still under my maintenence level - 2453 cals total, but now I'm up 3 pounds, bloated and full of waterhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley19.gifToday I will be eating super clean! 100% raw today (Prtein shakes depending on how they are processed are raw food compliant) and that should rid my body of all the yukies from yesterday. Between that and a good pooping and I'll be good to go! I still don't think my body has release that meat from Sundayhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley11.gif

6/13 - Water great, workout excellent, eating 99% clean. Hubby brought me 2 small chocolates home from Lifeway Christian books stores and I figured hey, they have scriptures and no trans fats or other yukies....these are sanctified chocolateshttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifCals 1884. Was still at 171.5 today but at the tail end of my period. I should be back to normal by the end of the week.

I will be doing DOUBLE DUTY for the next few months so on Monday's, Wednesday's and Friday's I will do a high impact workout in the AM and a low impact workout in the PM. I will also be calculating my dailywater intake, something I had stopped doing and keep a close eye on portion control.
My why: To get a boost on my weight/inch loss so I can hit the 100#'s total lost mark and we are going to start planning our 2008 Jamaican vacation so this will help push me too.

What: This month I would like to work on getting more sleep throughout the week so I can wake up earlier and go for my morning walks. I am aiming for no less than 6 hours of sleep a night to start this week & I will add 1/2 an hour every week until I get to 8 hours of sleep a night. This in turn will help me wake up earlier so I can go for my morning walks & still have time to get ready for work and eat breakfast.
Why: Studies show that when you do not get enough sleep, your body, your workouts, and everything suffers!!!

As far as walking, I will help in getting my day started with a good calorie burn, exercise, & it will boost mydaily steps walked.

What: I would like to get back into a regular exercise program each day (I took about 10 days off recently due to my knee). I would also like to remain on the WW core system for the month if I can - the difference in my energy level & ability to feel satiated since starting core is amazing!






Why: because it makes me feel better than if I don't eat as well and don't exercise as much http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif I like having energy (makes up for my lack of sleep with my baby up 4 times every single night).

Fri 6/8 ~ 1 mile run on treadmill, great Core day.

Sat 6/9 ~ WW weigh in & overnight to NYC (I will post Sunday evening) - weigh in 123.6. LOTS of walking through NYC & Central Park anddancing at our event too (that was my exercise for the day). Eating - totally off plan because I was going all out on our weekend away.

Sun 6/10 ~ Eating - still off core, and a few pounds crept back on over the weekend, but that's okay as my goal weight is 125. I will stick to core for dinner and all of the rest of this week, so hopefully I won;t go over 125 at my next weigh in on Saturday.

Mon 6/11 ~ HAVING

Tues 6/12 ~ A

Wed 6/13 ~ BAD

Thurs 6/14 ~ WEEK http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gifhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gif Back on track again next week.

I also need to get back into a regular rotation. I had to take a few weeks off to get things situated and now I'm back in the game! Why? Because I feel lazy when I don't exercise! So after about 3 weeks, I'm back to Tj'ing. And after about 2 months, I'm back to double workouts! Took some time out of that one because I got burnt out

My what is to slowly increase the amount of excerises I can do even if it is walking a bit further or adding more stretches to my current routine and also increase my water consumption (I am really bad about that).
My why is because I am really enjoying how I feel and look, and want to be 180 lbs by the end of June (I am at 192 1/2 down from 234lbs since 1/30/07).

Friday 6/8/07... 1 mile walk, normal daily excersizes, 1 glass of water, did really good as far as eating went today too!

Saturday 6/9/07...1 glass of water, and ate well...No time for excersize

Sunday 6/10/07...Pocono Race! Well it ended up raining most of the time, but I did get a bottle of water in, ate GREAT, and walked I would say about 2 miles.

Monday 6/11/07....No walk today, and eating was good, 1 bottle of water, and in about 10 minutes I am going down to do my 50 reverse situps and the rest of my leg and arm stretches with resistance band : )

Tuesday 6/12/07... No walk today (stupid rain), eating very good, 1/2 bottle of water (kinda slipped a little back on the water), 50 reverse situps, leg and arm stetches with resistance band, added new stomach excercise to routine...did 10 reps on that.

Wednesday 6/13/07...Kinda a hard day for me today, had alot of back pain...so I did only maybe a 1/2 mile walk, 30 situps, and some simple leg stretches and arm stretches with no resistance band. Water not so good either only a 1/2 of a bottle. Praying tomorrow the back pain will be gone or at least more managable then today!

What: I'm trying to cut back on the carbs and increase the veggies/fruits. My hubby was raised vegetarian, so he's all about the pasta and bread lol.

Why: I rarely if ever eat fruits and vegetables. My daughter is 3 and will quickly be picking up on my eating habits, and if I am eating well, she will too.

Way to go everyone! Great goalshttp://forum.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif

I'm on week 2 of Double Duty and definitely needed it after the food I atethis weekendhttp://forum.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif My knee is still giving me problems so Kev has had me wrap it daily for the last 5 days or so. I don't want to overdo workouts but I don't want to stop either.
