Using BodySpace at the Gym

Yesterday at the gym, I used Body Space as I was working out. It was easy. I was following one of the programs on the app but I found out that some of the exercises I couldn’t do because someone was using the machines. Also when I completed the day, it showed all the exercises in the plan and not just the exercises I did. So I decided not to go with a plan. I will just concentrated on one body part and go down the list of exercises to do and add them like that. 😀 But other than that, using BodySpace is really helpful! I can see what exercises to do and how to do it because they have videos. I love it. I was going today but Star wasn’t able to go to the gym and leave the bag like we planned. But we’ll try to go again tomorrow morning. I will concentrate on my abs and the next time I go, I will do the legs. Below is the list of exercises I did yesterday and food that I ate.

Yesterday I didn’t go to the park because of had to take care of a hair product label that needed to be created and it rained as soon as 5 o’clock hit. It’s sunny today so we’ll see if I can go skating today. Sharri says I’ve been doing good on the scale so yay for that.

  • Nutri-Grain Strawberry Harvest Bar
  • Horizon Vanilla Milk
  • Nutri-Grain Strawberry Greek Yogurt
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Kashi Roasted Almond Crunch Bar

Dinner for last night, I started to eat it before I knew it so I wasn’t able to take a picture of it but I’ll post up a Chicken and Dumpling picture that’s similar. ****takes time to look up the picture**** Ok so I tried to look up a picture and everything was soup. We didn’t have soup. We had 1 boneless skinless chicken breast and 4 small dumplings with some spinach.

Keep Going

It certainly does not happen over night. Not giving up is the key to success.  954604_612152655464022_1271774247_n.jpg 480×640 pixels

This week’s weigh-in

According to the app I’m using, Sparkpeople, I should be 137 right now. I don’t take what they say seriously because I’m a woman and my body fluctuate constantly. Especially on my time of the month, which was last week. It totally messed up my count. Sharri said that I was a 136.5 before it started.

I did the flat belly exercise this week and it wasn’t bad at all. I’m happy that it separates the sets for the crunches and leg raises. I can’t do the jumping jacks so I still have to come up with a alternative. We went to a park close to the house and I skated while sharri ran. We went for 3 miles before we stopped because sharri is training for a 5k she wants to do.

I’m happily keep up with my lunchboxes. They might be for little kids but they are a great way of take food with you in small portions. I love having snacks through the day and not feel hungry until I get home.

Today’s lunchbox
Horizon Vanilla Milk • Fage Total 2% Greek Yogurt • Nutri-Grain Harvest Bar • Orville Mini Bag Popcorn • Kashi Almond Granola Bar

I’m going to the park again tonight to skate. We might do 3 miles again, I don’t know. I don’t know what we are having for dinner, I will update this post tonight.

My gallery page is linked with my Instagram page. I’m not able to blog everyday like I want to but I’m constantly posting pictures of how I’m doing on my path to weight loss as well as personal pictures I would love to share with everyone.

No Problems

Today went pretty smoothly. There was no stress at work and I was almost able to get all the projects done. Except for the 3 prayer cards that came at the end. Ugh. Well anyway, fit wise like always, it great. I ate my snacks throughout the day.

Skirt Steak Dinner

No fitness today but I will be going to the park tomorrow. I will follow the fitness trail and post pictures of some of the exercises I will do.

Feeling Good

https://i1.wp.com/distilleryimage8.ak.instagram.com/9d595ec688e911e3a7201273a5a26904_8.jpg

It’s getting hard trying to find the right title for my blog post since I’m not following any plans or programs lol. These are the numbers I received yesterday. I didn’t workout because of how low those numbers are. Some people would say that I’m doing myself an injustice for not eating so much some days. I say, if I feel good and it feels like my body is getting enough and not complaining then I must be doing something right. I’ve been taking vitamins everyday at night. I take multi-vitamins, fish oil and iron. The multi-vitamins are gummy because I hate taking horse pills, yuck.

Here’s my lunch box setup;

Lunch box setup

  • Fage Cherry Pomegranate Greek Yogurt
  • Welch’s Fruit Snack
  • Baby Carrots
  • Good To Go Bars
  • Luna Bar

I’ll try to keep it at five items for the lunch box to keep it consistent. I’ll need to go to the store soon to buy more snacks because it’s starting to look like a package lunch and I don’t want it to.

For dinner I had;

  • Snow Crab Legs (no butter)
  • Broccoli Slaw

I wanted to take a picture of it but didn’t because we ate it as soon as it hit the plate because we were so hungry lol but I looked up a picture online and that’s about what we had. Sharri didn’t like the broccoli slaw all that much but I loved it.

A Smooth Day

https://i2.wp.com/distilleryimage1.ak.instagram.com/9ccb29a087ca11e3919b0e37ec96a7f5_8.jpg

Today wasn’t a bad day. I put my lunch box together with;

  • South Beach To Go Bar
  • Baby Carrots
  • Chobani Apple Cinnamon Greek Yogurt (yum)
  • Nutri-Grain Strawberry Greek Yogurt Bar
  • Welch’s Fruit Snack
  • A Muffalette Slider

https://i0.wp.com/distilleryimage11.ak.instagram.com/f4ff7aba875011e3951512fb297ee7d7_8.jpg

I was able to eat throughout the day and not be hungry by the end of my work day.  After I got off, I went to a park I wanted to check out for a while. It’s called Pompano Community Park. It has a fitness trail a little over a mile and I will visit there two days out of the week.

For dinner I went to Panera Bread because I wanted to something calorie concious after working out. I shared the meal with Sharri. my gf and then went home to rest.

https://i1.wp.com/distilleryimage4.ak.instagram.com/7f74b79c87b911e392c8123c34e343ec_8.jpg

I’m still stepping on the scale but I will step on it backwards so I won’t see the numbers until Monday because every Monday I will log in my weight. I will step on it to make myself not feel anxious about not doing it.

Title?

I’m normally a protein eater. I don’t eat much carbs. My body likes to hold on to it. Still planning to get that elliptical so I can use it at home instead of the gym. Don’t worry, that’s not all I’m planning on doing. I’m going to do more home videos, when I have the time. I have very little right now and that’s why I’m being really careful of what I eat. *saying that as I finish off a break pudding lmao* Weekends are my enemy because I have a booth at a farmer’s market and I have nothing healthy to eat here. 😦 At least it’s easy to lose what I gained though. I just want to keep losing and to not start yo-yoing afterwards 😦

T.C. – Day 20

Day Twenty– Favorite diet?

Now let’s see. I’ve tried the reboot diet, nothing but juice, special k diet, Flat Belly Diet and many others. I think my favorite diet is the one that gives me information about about my body type and life style and how I should eat because of it. So my favorite diet one that I create for myself. I would take bits of info from a diet, lets say Farmer/Hunter diet by Dr. Oz, I use it to watch what I eat and how I should exercise. I’m a Hunter from the info that I got and it says that people like that don’t like eating breakfast in the morning, which is true for me, I can totally skip breakfast any day of the week and not feel bad about it, and should eat mostly protein and less carbs. I love meat. LOL Anyway, I also count my calories and exercise on a website called Livestrong. I absolutely love that website. It emails you info about dieting and exercise as well. You place in how you lifestyle is, like I’m mostly in a office so it tells me what calories I should eat in that environment and not exercise, for those days that I don’t.
