Killer workout stats and a Puzzle!

The Hump Day Blog Hop

Weekly check in

I know I should be writing more posts BUT life is a chaos lately, and it is what it is.

 I cannot beat myself up for things I do not do, instead I want to focus on what I do right.

My workouts have been killer this past week in terms of Cardio and some times I am also able to get in one more workout in the morning,

and I say sometime because it really depends how  sore I am from the workout of the night before PLUS I do not want to overdo.

I know I made a goal to exercise twice but then on second thoughts , the real question I asked myself was if I would be able to continue that workout after I am done being at goal and the answer is NO

So, then I may as well be good with one killer 45-60 minutes workout a day!

Here are my stats for the week on FITBIT


My workouts have been great my calorie burn has been great too,

Weigh for this week

Last weeks weigh in- 166.4 lbs
This weeks weigh in-166.8 lbs
Gain of -0.4 lbs

Insert-sad/ puzzled face

I am not sure if I should feel puzzled or frustrated or angry!

I have been tracking diligently on MFP and mostly been below my calorie intake, I am really not sure what's going on with my body here! UGGH

I am also thinking if I should join Weight Watchers back, especially since I am sitting at this weight forever now.




I do see a whole lot of difference in my arms and legs (tummy is another story-lol) but I need to get into the 150 lbs faster than this guys!

Uggh-Any suggestions?

Weigh In Wednesday

Am I failing or being delusional!

The Hump Day Blog Hop


As you know I have made some Goals and was doing great until Friday.

I know I sound like a broken record here but I really was until the Saturday night Dance event hit

It is called Dandiya (DAHNDEEYA) which is played with two sticks and you dance to Music it was really great fun.

I went there all dressed up and my partner was my older son! (Wow I have a grown up kid now)



Photo courtesy my son! Lol


Anyhow food wise things went spiraling down that night on wards!

But

I have had this happen to me where one thing leads to another and it goes downhill, and honestly I have come too far to gain all my weight back, I am liking this weight, SURE

I want to loose more, but I surely don't want to get back to where I started.

So I called for help-yesterday-to the amazing girls in the Challenge group on "Stay away from the Tricks and Treat"

Although to be honest my first instinct was to HIDE as I always do but there was a voice inside of me saying, that , that would only harm me and no one else.

They encouraged me to start doing the right thing -right away, and I rocked my workouts yesterday!


I did 10 minutes on Step Mill


35minutes on the the Treadmill

And also managed to do "No more Trouble Zone-Jillian Michael" at home!

Wohoo yay me!

I repeated  "No more Trouble Zone-Jillian Michael" this morning


This morning (as usual after a 3 days gaps) I was expecting a gain----

BUT
But
but





TADAA~~~~~~!

Last weeks weigh in-167.2
Today's weight- 166.4
Loss of -0.8lbs

Not a whole lot, but it isn't a gain so I am beyond happy!!

That's it for now, thank you for supporting me every


Weigh In Wednesday XOXO, Sheetal

Some Random Thoughts, and October Goals!

I start a Diet bet today and I submitted my official weigh in yesterday so I am counting that to be my Wednesday weigh in.

The word was  "HOOP" -

 Last weeks weigh in was 170.2 lbs
This weeks weigh in is 167.2
That is 3 lbs less



So it is good , and I should be happy right?
BUT

since I was in this place before, and I have gone right till 164 lbs before and then gone up again, I am not going to let it affect me except to keep doing this.

On a very random note,

I like instant coffee- and the other day I made BRU instant (Indian brand probably) YUMMY!



Another Random tangent---Fall is here,yikes!!!

Since we live in a Townhouse,

with less room and storage every year I have to move clothes around the season, so summer clothes

went in and Fall /Winter clothes come out.

When trying my Jeans today none fit me-look at this one.





This one used to fit last year just fine! YAY

All my hard work is paying off! Yippee!

I am thinking of making some goals BUT I have reputation of making goals and never following through.

I feel I JINX it , I still want to make goals to stay aware

October Goals

  1. Exercise twice daily
  2. Eat a light dinner
  3. Lift weights once a day
  4. Follow Simple Start
  5. Get under 160 lbs (uff--I am done being in the 160lbs,feels like I've been here forever!!)

More later!

Linking with Ash and the girls!
