South Beach Diet – Phase 1 – Day 4

I worked out at the gym yesterday yay! I did circuit training first then I went to the elliptical for 45 mins. Got tired pretty quickly because I did a level 10 on the elliptical instead of 7 or 8. Today I think I’ll do the strength training and then go to the elliptical for 30 mins. I’m trying to spend less time on the cardio and more time doing something else. Then maybe one day a week I’ll concentrate on cardio. I woke up today being 142 flat! OMG!! I finally made it. I’m happy to be closer to being under 140. I think I’ll celebrate when I get to that point. I don’t know yet.

South Beach Diet – Day 3

I didn’t go to the gym yesterday because Sharri’s monthly started and I didn’t want her to workout if she was in pain. I’m going to work hard today though because she has the car and gets out later than me so I’ll walk to the gym. It’s not far. I think I’ll start off with the circuit today and then do cardio. I’m still losing weight even though I didn’t workout hard for the last two days so I’m happy about that! The diet is working.

South Beach Diet – Day 2

Yesterday I was so tired, I couldn’t workout as much as I wanted to so I decided to just do the elliptical for 45 minutes. Today I’ll do more. I found out that Target has a good salad that I could eat without extra stuff in it. Harvest Chicken Salad. It was good. It had chicken breast, sliced Almonds, and Cranberries. Of course I couldn’t eat the cranberries because I’m suppose to not eat fruit on Phase 1. I should’ve done some home exercises too but like I said I was tired. The fact that my computer wasn’t working at all didn’t help either so I could work on any projects. 😦 Sucks. Anyway, I hope today will be better and also the rest of the week.

10lb pass!

Hello everyone. I’m happy to announce that I’m pass my 10lb mark. 12lbs down woot! What I’m eating for lunch is really helping. I went to Walgreens one day and found these lunchables called GoPicnic. They are fantastic but for what they cost, I can probably buy the materials and create my own. So my GF and I went to Wholefoods and Target to get the ingredients and I’m enjoy every minute of it. Now I can’t wait for lunch! I eat the trailmix for a morning snack and have the rest for lunch. Not only that, but I’ve been following a workout regiment for the gym. Sharri, my GF, has gotten a trainer that has given her a list of workouts to do, now we do them at the gym and I love the results. We do 1 hour of cardio though before we start. The workout regiment is mostly for strength training. I can’t do the pull ups yet without assistants from the machine but I’m hoping I can do it without the assistants one day. I’m hoping before the Florida SuperCon, I’ll be 135-130lbs. I’ll keep going and try to be Sharri’s rock because she needs to motivation to keep going.
