Losing It: Not just our Sanity - Week 5



I tried the whole commando thing. Not horrible, maybe not even worse than the Great Panty Debacle of 2010 but not a solution either. It just let to my pants becoming a little too personal with me. Ahem.

I did also grab Fiber One products and things are moving a bit better. Unfortunately this week was busy to the point where I kept beating myself up for over scheduling it so badly. And of course being so busy and beating myself up led to a fallback of some old habits. I did the unthinkable - I ate fast food not once but TWICE this week. The scale reflected my poor eating this week as I was up a half a pound.

On the positive side I met with the personal trainer and he designed a workout to fit around my limitations but that would still start to move me forward. I also learned that I was pushing myself too hard on the treadmill. My target heart rate is about 10bpm lower than I thought. So I can get an hour long walk in at my target range without limping after.

Now I am off to the gym!

You're taking control! (That's what my EA Sport Active shouts out when I'm doing a good job) Way to go! I so need a personal trainer. Oh wait, I have one, his name is Samuel and he's turning one next week. ; )

A personal trainer...nice!! Wonder if (s)he will be anything like the trainers on The Biggest Loser! Those two are TOUGH!! Have fun!

I've recently learned about the target heart rate thing. I always thought the more sweat and gasping for air the better! But, that's not the case!
This coming week is a whole new one! good luck and give yourself a break. Don't be too hard on yourself.

Good job!

I had to go back and read Week 4. Absolutely hilarious! Isn't it funny how a simple thing like underwear can derail our good intentions? You busted through -- good work. Soon you won't even need the plus size fairy for anything.

I can't wait to hear how it goes with the personal trainer! I would love to have someone to kick my butt! :)

I eat a Fiber One granola bar - or some other high-fiber food - every day. Or ELSE. (Ifyouknowwhatimean!)
