Day 34 of 120 – Totally Messed Up

Well it is Day 34 of 120 Days of Les Mills Pump. Tomorrow is the final day of Te Were – phase 1 then onto Panoni – phase 2.

lmp day 34

Today we took the kids along some extra kids to the pumpkin farm. Everyone had a great time. It was a wonderful day to share with our family and friends! I do have a confession to make while we were there I ate like total CRAP! I had a doughnut, some fries and a soda. Yikes. Honestly packing something healthy did not even come to mind. It was dumb to assume that there would be a healthy option at a pumpkin farm. To top if off when we got home I had a slice of pizza. Granted I only went approximately 200 calories over my daily set amount. But I did it by having a little junk and not enough good stuff. The only healthy thing about today was my breakfast and I had a bunch of water.

Once we got home and all of the kids that do not belong to me went home it was fairly late. Not to far after Mr. Baby’s bedtime routine needed to get started and then Emma decided to go sleep over somewhere so I had to pack her up. Once she left I was pooped. DH wanted to rent a movie and veg out so he ran put to pick up a flick and i went and got my pjs on. Then it was time to join the real world again and tell myself that I ate like crap and did not workout. A couple hours of walking around while baby-wearing doesn’t count as an actual workout. So Immediately I went downstairs and did my daily workout. In my pjs mind you. Had to do it and right at that moment because if i sat down it would not happen. So here I am after 45 minutes of Pump and Shred. Sore and tired as hell. But I did it. May of been reluctantly but  it still counts. It was not done half assed either.

Now it is time to veg out and watch our movie. Hope you all had a wonderful Saturday!!

Days 32 and 33 of 120

87 Days to go!!

87 Days to go!!

Yesterday was day 32 of 120 Days of Les Mills Pump. The good old stitched up hand was throbbing so I swapped yesterday with today. Day 33 was a rest day so I figured why not. So yesterday was deemed a rest day. spent the day at a doctor’s office (always fun), had lunch with a good friend, babysat, cooked dinner and all that fun stuff. And you can’t forget that it was Thursday and Vampire Diaries was on!

Today’s workout was Hard Core Abs and Flow. Got a few of the Plank to Push Ups in then had to drop down to a regular plank. Not that I couldn’t do them but it was hurting the good old hand. This knuckle thing is ridiculous. You never notice how much you need to use it until it is stitched up. I swear the thing looks like an evil smile face. During flow I didn’t get all the moves in for the same reason. My best was put into it and that is what matters.

Had a houseful of kids this evening, it was a lot of fun! Mr Baby stayed up past his baby bedtime relishing in all the fun and excitement. Hoping this means he sleeps good for me tonight! He even took a minute of his time to pinch where my stitches are and rip one of them a bit. OUCH!!

Food wise I have been pretty good at staying clean. Things that are not taste fake now so it is easier to not give into temptation. It will only keep getting easier!

Now it is time to finish watching Silver Bullet and try to get 475 more calories in for the day. Kind of behind!

So Here’s the Plan

 

As I confessed in yesterday’s post I didn’t exactly have the healthiest weekend and have a pesky numb leg. So workouts were skipped and pizza was eaten and copious amounts of wine were consumed. Eating has been back on track but I still have not worked out. My leg is more tingly today so I am hoping it is back to normal by the end of the day.

So with everything mentioned above skipping out on actually finishing 120 days of Les Mills Pump is not something that I want to do. So skipping back to when I had the junk food and started missing workouts is the right thing to do. So back to Day 25 for this chick. Getting rehydrated is number one on the list. There was definitely more wine than water consumed over the weekend, my body is not happy about it. I feel drier than the Sahara Desert! Food is back on track so there are no worries there and later on a workout will be attempted. If my balance and stance is still off due to the numb leg then I will stop and start Day 25 again. This is the longest the Fibromyalgia has left my leg numb. I think it may be time to make an appointment and get checked out. My creaky knee is worse so that needs to be looked at too as well as the fact that it is the time of year that I should start taking meds for my Raynaud’s Syndrome.

So I am off to eat a healthy lunch, drink more water and call the doctor’s office.

Day 22 of 120 Days of Les Mills Pump Finished

lmp day 22
8 days until weigh in and 98 days until I am thorough Les Mills Pump and Les Mills Pump Ultimate Cross Training Deluxe. Wow, that is a mouthful to say! Once I am completed I think I am going to treat myself to Les Mills Combat. After looking into most things offered on Beachbody this one appeals to me most right now and is not as extreme as lets say Insanity. Lord knows that lots of people make it through Insanity and even harder stuff like Crossfit but being disabled I just don’t see those things in my future. Don’t take it as me saying the workouts are easy, they are quite a challenge and I am sure that Combat will be tougher than Pump and UCT. But more than likely easier to modify on my “bad” days. Plus I just really like Les Mills classes. I wish they were still offered in my area. My doctor already say no way to the Crossfit, and to other things so I follow the rules. Personally I am not a doctor so I just listen and follow the rules.

Today’s workout was Pump and Burn. Got threw it with no changes in the weight I was pushing today. I tried to up it for the Legs and Back Track but had to readjust down to my original weight. Maybe next week?? Or even next time?? We shall see!

Tomorrow is a rest day but a friend wants to come over and do something. So I am going to go really low impact. Maybe yoga and walking or low impact aerobics? Nothing crazy so I can recover a bit.

Well, dinner is just about done. Roast beef, roasted carrots & onions and brown rice / veggie pilaf. Yum!

 

Day 21 In the Bag

lmp day 21

I am sure you figured it out by the title that today was day 21. So there are 99 days left to go and 9 days until I weigh and measure in. Kind of feeling torn about that, I am excited to see how I have progressed but am a little scared that I haven’t. There should be no way that I have not made any progress. But weigh ins always give me a bit of anxiety. That is why I choose to do it monthly instead of weekly.

Today’s scheduled workout was Hard Core Abs along with a 45 minute walk. I still feel like I am struggling with form with those plank to push-up thingies but I am at least conscious of my mistakes so it will be easier to work my way to getting them down. As far as the 45 minute walk i choose to do something else. It seems I always choose to do something else. The thought of a 45 minute walk kind of bores me and seems unchallenging. The 45 minute walk was replaced with a 5 milk walk video. It is a combination of walking, jogging, aerobics and resistance band training. Even during the resistance bend miles you are still moving. I did the entire 5 miles plus warm up and cool down so it equaled out to 75 minutes of cardio. Whew! I am tired now! It was a fun video. It was the Leslie Sansone: Walk at Home – 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk. Quite an enjoyable workout! The 75 minutes goes shockingly fast.

As far as food intake that is still going pretty well. I went a little over calorie wise today due to too many nuts but it wasn’t junk food so no need to feel guilty or beat myself up. It was worth it. I wanted a brownie and ate those instead. Good trade-off I think 🙂

I’m Here to Bitch and Moan

I am typing this as the smell of freshly baked boxed brownies wafts through my house. It is making me really unhappy and unsupported. Normally I can handle temptation and rarely even feel like I diet, but right now I have been struggling with it and this is the last thing I need right now. I feel like crap is getting waved in my face and I am being teased. Oh I know, I sound dramatic as all get up. I know I do. Just can’t help it.

DH is sitting here eating burritos and baking up a box of brownies.. Really not fair!!!! I have to make myself some clean eating friendly dessert for me tomorrow. Either some quinoa trail mix balls or maybe I can grind up some quinoa and make it into brownies somehow. May have to experiment tomorrow.

I may still be 270 calories shy for the day after 3 meals and 2 snacks and calorie wise I could afford a brownie. With the way I have been feeling this week I know I would binge. And having one would defeat the purpose of eating clean.

So not happy right now. I want junk too! My brain says no but my hormones say…  CHOCOLATE!!!!!!!

 

p.s. DH I love you but you are a jerk

20 Down, 100 to Go

lmp day 20

Today was day 20 of Les Mills pump. Day 19 was a rest day so I didn’t workout. Today’s workout was Pump and Burn. all in all I was pleased with today’s workout. During the ab track I was able to double my weight. Hoping that next time I can double it for the legs and back track.

Eating clean has been going really well. Having a terrible hard week as far as temptation goes. Not even thinking I walked by a pack of cookies this morning, grabbed one and took a bite. Immediately realized what I had done and threw the cookie out without taking another bite. a slip up yes, but I remedies the problem with a quick trip to the trash can. I am thinking I really need to make a batch of clean cookies!

 

Starting From Scratch

Managing time, events, a newborn, a seven-year old, nursing, and constant migraines as well as fybro flares has been quite a challenge.  It took almost 5 months but it seems as though things are back on track. I wish I was one of those moms that get back to it and life goes back to normal in a month or two after baby. Let’s just say I am far from that. Yay for being a cripple, HAHA!

We have went back to clean eating. Eased into it this time instead of going all out and replaced things bit by bit until it started to become routine. For far too long we ate take-out, went out, had delivery or frozen foods. Now I just have to once again teach myself how to eat often once again. I have little to no appetite until dinnertime is around the corner. Working on that. I’ll get there soon enough. Baby steps I suppose.

My basement is FINALLY fully functional as of this past week. I have lights, power (not enough outlets but hey, I can make do), new carpet and my workout area set back up.  I did get quite the shock trying to hook things up with very little lighting down there. My eyelid twitched for a day but no harm was done.  As far as using the basement, I have been.

As of this past week I started working out daily again.  Just some cardio, yoga and toning stuff. Nothing major or really that challenging. I am certainly in TERRIBLE shape! No flexibility, most of my strength is gone my stamina is shot. But starting from scratch is nothing new to me. I did it before so it wouldn’t be impossible to do it once again.

In October I am doing the Run Scream Run 5k in Ypsi. I am cutting it close. Running has not been part of my life since last summer. I have tried to run but even getting to a jog is killing my calves. Not sure if it is the fybro or being overweight, a combination of both or something entirely different. I ordered some compression sleeves and when they get here we will see how things feel. If that doesn’t help back to the doctors. Doctors love people like me, people like me get them RICH! The plan is to run or at least jog as mush of the 5k as possible and if I can’t do it for the entire 5k I will power-walk to the finish.

Today was a free day after a week of workouts. Sunday never feels like the beginning of the week, Mondays do. So as of tomorrow I will be starting Les Mills Pump at day one. The plan is to log my workouts here on WP daily. I do not plan to post on rest days. I did not weigh or measure as of yet. But I will get to that soon.

Weigh in..

I lost my glasses so I could not post yesterday, due to me being blind as a bat. So I am going to quickly post them today. I am definitely in a plateau. No changes so far this past three weeks really so I think I am going to knock 200 calories of my daily 1700 and replace more of the calories with lean protein and see how things add up next week.

So here are my stats. Absolutely no change this week. But it is better than gaining so it could be worse!

  • Chest: 31.5 inches (-0 inches)
  • R Arm: 12 inches (-0 inches)
  • L  Arm: 12 inches (-0 inches)
  • Waist: 32 inches (-0 inches)
  • Hips: 41 inches (-0 inches)
  • R Thigh: 23.5 inches (-0 inches)
  • L Thigh: 23.5 inches (-0 inches)
  • Weight: 166 pounds (-0 pound)
  • Pant Size: 12
  • BMI: 29.4% (-0 %)

Back on the Wagon

That is where I am, after a good portion of this week leaving me feeling guilty (and fat) I am digging out my sneakers and hopping back on the fitness train. All my meals were to par and today’s workout I made sure I pushed hard. I plan on hitting it once more to make up for not working out yesterday. The entire day and night I spent at a friends Bachelorette party, so I didn’t make time. Tisk, Tisk. Anyhow, no more of that. The house is coming back together, school and sports are ending so I am looking forward to upping my workouts and getting ready for The Color Run. My tulle came yesterday so I can start with the tutu’s and I am starting C25K over (well, in the middle) so I can do my best for the race. Even if I can’t run the entire 3.1 I plan on running as much of it if I can. But am hoping I can run it.

Now, I must be off to put together a book shelf, get the kid ready for bed and do some Les Mills Pump Revolution. See you tomorrow after my morning activities are finished!
