Sweatin' It

The bulletin board is up!  I'm in love.  I want to sit and stare at it all day. 

It's hanging on the wall in our spare bedroom.  No matter what angle I took the picture at, I got a glare from the mirror. Just pretend it's not there.

And my pretty bulletin board up close.  Some inspirational quotes.  My workout calendar.  I write down my workout everyday.  And my weigh in.  Ug, the weigh in.  It's getting better and I am feeling better.  I've been working my butt off.

Yesterday I may have overdone it a tiny bit though.  I had a DJ Tanner moment this morning.  You know that episode where DJ decides she's fat and tries to lose weight super fast.  She eats nothing but like a popsicle and then collapses when she's exercising.  I didn't collapse.  Nothing nearly that dramatic.  However, apparently I didn't have enough calories for how much I worked out yesterday and I woke up super dizzy.  Meaning now I'm home laying on the couch.  Eating and healthy and working out only slightly less vigorously while watching Magic Mike. 

And I bought new weights.  I started 30 Day Shred again and um, my five pound weights are kicking my butt.  I can't get through a whole set without wanting to cry.  I may have given up halfway through the video and grabbed two vegetable cans.  Yup, total wimp.  Hopefully the three pound weights will be better.

So, aside from using My Fitness Pal, I'm also using this cute little notebook to track everything in.  It definitely helps me stay accountable, it's a lot harder to eat crap when you actually have to write it down.  I'm also trying to drink a gallon of water a day.  That pretty much means I pee all the time.  Like an embarrassing amount.  But, I totally feel fuller.  And I do feel a lot better when I'm just drinking straight water.  Well, today it's with frozen raspberries in it.  Yum!  A little extra flavor and no added calories or artificial sweeteners.

Fitness notebook!

So, what do you guys do to stay on track with  being healthy?  Other than locking up the Twinkies.  And now the exercise bike is calling my name.

  1. I just love your bulletin board. I can't believe how great this turned out! It sounds like you are doing really good with your diet. Just don't go all DJ Tanner...I remember that episode!
