Yesterday was not a good day>

I started work at 430am...didn't finish work until 830pm...then I went to help a friend until 1000pm.

Somebody tell me please how I can incorporate weight training days when I work long hours like this.

By the time I get home its late and I am tired.

I get in a quick 30 minutes walk...or when I take breaks at work I walk..but I get seem to think of any weight bearing exercises I can do except sit ups or push ups and then I do do them well.

Grrrr......

I seem to have eating down pretty good.

I have not lost any more weight...I have gained a pound.

Should I maybe be concentrating more on cardio to get rid of fat...then maybe incorporate weights later...

Help claudia :)

We;; good morning!

I have not managed weights in a few days now.

But I have manages a walk/run last night after work at around 930pm.

I am off to work now...I will manage another 40 minutes walk/run tonight after 930pm.

Some of the weight is coming off again...I figure I need to do cardio every day to get rid of this layer of fat...under some of the muscles I have.

My diet is really good now.

Breakfast oatmeal; with almond mile, cranberries or a banana and vega protein.

snack: i piece of toast with cucumber

lunch: a vegy sandwich

Snack: Banana

Dinner: Huge salad

Snack Vega protein

Morning.

I had a great breakfast of rolled oat, with a banana and vega powder.

I went out for my 10k run...I am tired but feel good.
I am trying to train for the Victoria Times Colonsit 10k run April 29th...and I need to get rid of 20 pounds of ugly fat otherwise it's goon take me 50 minutes to finish it.

I ran the 10k for 12 years...I think I stopped for at least 4 years..and I want to run it again. I have no idea why other than it became a challenge at work...someone said to me I couldn't do it....so plant based vegan power all the way.

I am still struggling get any weights done...I like them but by the time I get home I am tired :(

But I have now lost 4 pounds since I started this blog...and I feel better during the day...I just get good and tired in the evening.

Hello...

Well today is January 31st...

I have learned alot.

The thins I learned the most was how to eat properly.

Thank you Claudia.

I am still struggling with making weights three days a week.

But I have gotten out almost every day to walk/jog. I love it...it gives me energy lol!!

I still have a long ways to go...and I will continue writing in my journal as I go along.

april 29th is the 10k run which I have entered. so I am training or that...and trying to shed some of this body fat...which is being very stubborn.

I have taken pictures and will continue to do so...then when someone comes along to tell me how to up[load photos on my journal...I will do that!!

Did a small 5k walk.jog...will do a longer one tomorrow.

To date since January 1st I have lost 5 pounds...yipeee!! better slow than not at all.

What do you do for work? Are you stuck at a desk all day? We I was stuck at a desk some of my co-workers and I all bought yoga balls and swapped them for our chairs (if you work a corporate job you can probably even ask HR and they will probably buy one for you). They are good for posture aka strengthening muscles in your stomach, core, and back. You can bring in dumb bells and use them while sitting on your yoga ball at your desk too. Haha I got some funny looks from people but I got a little work out in so I didn't care.
Great Job keeping up with your fitness journal on here even though you have been so busy at work! I am definitely going to recommend that you qualify for the prize package. Oh and don't give up! Just because the challenge is done for the month doesn't mean keeping a fitness journal isn't still a great way to keep holding yourself accountable.

Hey Dylan

Thanbks so much for your imput greatly appreciated it.

Ohhhhhhh no I plan on keeping up my journal no this website...it has helped me a great deal.
Sometimes when I put things into words...and then read them I can see where I need help. I like that it makes me accountable to myself to.

I work as a ticket agent...so I really don't sit much during that 8 hour period. I see and talk to people all day log. The job is really entertaining but at times can be very stressful when line up's start to get very long. My hours vary at this job I sometimes start work at 430am-130pm...then I hop to my other job which does require just sitting and data entering into the computer. Ohhhh I try to fit things in.

I have discovered I want to train for the times colonist 10k this year...so I am concentrating on my walk/jog more. I still need to lose some weight. The run is April 29th..so I am determined to get rig of some of this fat hanging around. I have been training with weights and I love when I am done...but I am not consistent. I amy go three days a week for two weeks...then maybe only one day the next week.
I am seeing a great deal of difference in my arms..because they are the skinniest part of my body lol!!
I have good strength in my legs...because I am always walking or running everywhere....and I hike a lot.

No they wouldn't allow any balls at work...I am face to face with the public.
I do fidget alot...I love walking along the water...
I try to do some counter push ups when i get fidgety.

My problem is my love for carbs...lol
and being a night snacker..I love to snack at night...and I was always picking carbs:)
But the last few weeks I have not done that...so the weight is slowly creeping off.
Thanks for your pep talk
I really appreciate it...

I will still continue to journal every day

Bev

Good morning!

It is another beautiful day in sunny victoria.

Everyone is probably getting ready to sit in front of their TV's to watch the football game.

I am going out for a quick walk.jog...then off to work.

I may go for another walk.jog after work.

I think I am still eating to much food...and not exercising hard enough:)

i think I need to try more cardio...less carbs lol!!

I need to lose some of this weight that refuses to leave my body before April 29th...otherwise I am going to die running those 10k's lol.

I will have to listen to the football at work...hopefully people stay more at home today than travel...

Yiipppeeeeeee thanks Karen for letting me know!!

I am very excited about it!! Can't wait.

It has been a couple of days since I have been on here.

I have been working extra hours...but hanging in there.

So I have really been trying to train as much as I can for this 10k run April 29th.

getting excited. I have gotten rid of a few more pounds. I really need to slim down some so I can make it through the whole 10k lol!!

I am doing this run on a dare. A friend at work said I wouldn't be ale to run the whole thing...so a dare...is a dare...and I love to prove them wrong lol!

So I have been building up my kilometers

I walk/run one day maybe 3-4k then do a few weights the next day and go for a walk, next day walk/run maybe 6k...next day weights...next day 9-10k and one rest day...but I never really rest I usually go for a walk.

So that has been working out pretty good for me.

Still like my carbs at night...but I only have them if I really want it :(

Wow I can't believe it has been four days since I last logged on here.

I have been doing one short...about 5k...and one longer walk.run every second day.

The days in-between I have been lifting light weights...mostly upper body.

I do lunges and squats every second day also.

I am feeling good.

My nutrition is getting better.

I have a wee bit of almond butter in the evening or some cashews instead of carbs.

This seems to work better now...I am getting used to it.

Wow! It has been a couple of weeks since I last logged on here.

I have been away fro a couple of weeks though. Family stuff not always the most fun.

Even though I didn't get much of a chance to log on here...I was still doing some training for the times colonist 10k run.

It's getting a lot easier for me to run now...I am getting better and better each week. I feel stronger also.

I have shed some weight...another 4 pounds...yiipeee!!!!

I still do just light weights 3 times a week....but I do more cardio at this point.

My diet is good...I have been able to find one that helps me to lose some weight...and maintain a good balance.

I have a protein shake (Vega)..with banana or berries I also put a little oatmeal into the mix.

After my run another protein shake with just berries and wheatgrass

lunch I have a nice big salad with a little brown rice

snack some hummus with veg

dinner...depends on my mood.. but mostly a tofu stir fry with lots of veg

before bed snack..sometimes just a bit of peanut butter ...I don't feel like I am starving when I wake up in the morning!!!
