Well blogging is just not my strong suit

Well I really suck at keeping this updated. I'm sure all one of you that read this are disappointed but have no fear. I have a new entry. As far as my weight loss goes, I am at 210 lbs. about 7 down from my last post. I still work out and am even fitting into some old clothes. What really sucks about this run at losing weight is that I seem to be losing a lot of weight in my legs and not dropping it as quickly on my upper body this time. I wanna lose my gut more than my butt. both are big but one of them I have a better view of. It's really hard to keep up with all this and have a life. What with all the new social networking of Twitter and my new search for a house to buy I have been quite busy.

I'm still at it...

So, it's been a really long time since I posted on here. I'm still very much working on my weight loss goals. I am currently 217... still. My surgery has taken longer to heal than I expected. I have been able to do cardio but at certain times had to take a week here and there off because so healing issues. I should be able to start lifting next week and with that hopefully some more weight loss and some pictures will follow along with it. 185 here I come

new goal

I just read an article about weight loss and it said the 5-8 lbs a month is the healthiest goal. So with that in mind my goal for this month is 8lbs. Even with Valentine's day and my birthday in there. This one might be a little tough. Oh and I have to have surgery on March 9th to remove a cyst which will put me out of commission for a week. Guess I better bust my booty right on off.

A one month update.

Well it has been 4 weeks since I started my quest and I can say that I am 8 lbs down. Which is a great start. Unfortunately I did not make my goal of 10lbs this month. That sucks but I can only work harder this time. So now I'm at 219. I have pictures which I promised to post but I think I am going to hold off on posting pics until the two month. I want to do this because the pics aren't really that drastic. I can see some differences upon examination but it's not anything to post I think. My belly is smaller and my arms have trimmed down. My man boobs are little smaller which is always a great thing. Some old clothes are starting to fit again and I'm feeling good again. I can run a mile without feeling overly winded again which is a huge plus. I'm running a mile time of 8:34 which is pretty good for me. I know before I started this it was about 10:04 so that is much improved. I'm doing a fat burning lifting routine I found for the next four weeks to switch things up. It's 3 supersets of cardio lifting that is pretty hardcore. I like it so far but the squats on the trial run last week put me out of the gym for 4 days. So this is the first official week. It's hard because when you superset you don't rest in between exercises and the gym is so packed that it's hard to find a way around people during weekday workouts. It's really annoying and I want spring to come so the joggers and resolutioners fall off the wagon so I can have some space.

ohh diets are fun

So I said that I would line out my diet on here. I don't follow an exact plan on a daily basis because I have to have some variety. So most days start with a 3 egg whites 1 whole egg scramble with a piece of whole wheat toast or a packet of oatmeal to go and a banana (I will be switching the oatmeal to go to a more healthy oatmeal bar). My breakfasts vary a lot because I have trouble getting out of bed in time to cook eggs. My snack between lunch is normally either an oatmeal to go or some almonds or a banana if I didn't have one for breakfast. Snacks are tough because it's already a stretch for me to get my lunch together. Lunch is normally a chicken breast with steamed veggies or a tuna sandwich with veggies. Maybe I'll throw in a turkey burger in there once in a while. Afternoon snack varies greatly from almonds and cottage cheese to pretzels or oatmeal to go. I'll be honest I need to really prepare better snacks. Pre work out snack is normally some yogurt or a pb&j sandwich. I have no real pattern for dinner because I don't always prepare it. I'm a little more free with my dinners. The idea is 6 small meals a day. I also will throw in protein shakes where snacks are depending on the day. Anyway that's mostly my diet.. I welcome any advice.

So I weighed last night and I'm 4lbs down. I should be excited about this but I weighed last Monday and I was the same 4 down. I'm kinda confused because I actually worked harder this last week than the week before. It's funny how that works out. I did have a bad superbowl night. I ate a little too much shrimp boil and probably too much beer. I'm gonna keep working but it was just a bummer. So my weight is 223... well like 222.8 but I round up. I'm gonna continue to work hard and hopefully make my month goal of 10lbs. The good news is I'm almost half way there and I didn't gain anything.

So I did my first spin class this morning and loved it. It was intense and ridiculously hard but it was great to push myself harder than I ever have. The diet has been going well. I haven't been perfect but it's easier to keep on it if you give yourself some leeway here and there. I will be weighing myself on Monday and posting that weight. I know already that I have lost weight because I weigh myself on a weekly basis but I'm interested to see if I kept if up this week. That's all for now.
