i love spin class and...

BOOT CAMP! i love it. i do it once a week and it's such an amazing workout. its 60 mins long and the guy who teaches it always switches up what we do. he's kind of a jerk...he does tend to yell some of the class but it's motivational somehow. you always feel like he's going to call you out any second. but i do love it. it went from being so painful and hard...to being manageable now. same goes for spin class. the first class i didn't think i would ever do it again but i stuck with it and i LOVE it.

i'm "down" to 139...so that is amazing....i packed on a little over 10 lbs this past year and i'm glad to see it gone....i wasn't happy even saying that number (149) outloud. i'm also down 5% body fat, which is great too :) i feel strong, which i like best.

here are the rest of my may workouts & part of june:
5.14 - 45 spin class
5.15 - 60 min body pump
5.16 - 60 min yoga
5.18 - 50 min elliptical, 10 min treadmill walk, 60 min step interval
5.19 - 60 min boot camp

riding the wave

hi everyone!

still happily in the zone. i had a first this week...i went to a cardio class by myself. and what a class it was. i did BOOT CAMP on tuesday. it was sooooo hard. it made spinning and every other "hard" class i've been doing seem like a piece of cupcake! omg, so hard every muscle in my body hurts (esp my butt & thighs). we did weights, sprints, a lot of ab work & squats. AHHH! it hurts so bad. did manage to get to the gym today but i just walked on the treadmill...it was not fun.

tomorrow i may join my sister for spin class at 5:30am. INSANE.

workouts since we last spoke...
5.5 - 65 min treadmill hills
5.6 - 65 min elliptical, 60 min zumba
5.7 - 70 min elliptical, 60 min body pump
5.11 - 65 min treadmill walk
5.12 - 70 min elliptical, 60 min boot camp, 16 min walk

rainy day won't get me down

hi everyone!

i had a great weekend, my mom & grandma came up to visit and we bought my wedding dress! it is absolutely gorgeous. it fit like a glove and was so flattering (thanks to built in bra/corset thing)...i would feel comfortable wearing it today! but i hope to lose another 15 lbs before then (i'm getting married at the beginning of november).

this past week i've lost 5 lbs!!!! i can't believe it, the past few weeks i've lost 1 pound here, 1 pound there, but 5! and the number has stuck around so that is great. it motivates me to keep going. i definitely think it has to do with adding a second workout to my day (zumba, spinning, body pump) last week:

4.27 - 35 min elliptical, 10 min treadmill walk
4.28 - 68 min elliptical, 20 min treadmill, 60 min zumba class
4.29 - 38 min treadmill hills, 65 min elliptical, arm weights, 55 min spinning
4.30 - 60 min body pump, 12 min elliptical
5.1 - 45 min spinning
5.3 - 50 min treadmill hills, 20 min elliptical
5.4 - 65 min elliptical

this past friday my sister and i woke up at 6am to go to a spinning class and it was awesome. what a great way to start the day. i don't know if i could do it every day but once or twice a week could definitely work.

i hit the elliptical for 65 mins today and i'm going to a 60 minute step class tonight with my sister. OH! did i mention i'm in a wedding this weekend? well i am and that is motivating me to kick it into high gear this week so it looks nice on me.

alright....off to the gym on this rainy monday! have a nice evening.

just wanted to check in...is anyone still out there??

still here...

hey ladies (and gentleman if there are any reading this)! i'm still here...wedding planning, my birthday, D's birthday, vday and our upcoming trip to europe have kept me busy and honestly i haven't really been in the blogging mood! maybe it's the cold, windy weather? i don't know.

BUT i am down 3 lbs from last monday, which is good. almost back to my comfort weight. i had a run in with the stomach flu last week but i've been doing well with low carb eating so i really think that's what it is. i'm not counting points but of course i do it in the back of my mind anyway. i haven't been getting in all my points during the work week. work has been beyond busy. my boss was fired and i've been stuck making up for his work, attending his meetings and just really not having time to munch like i used to. so i eat breakfast, lunch, i get home later than normal, eat a light dinner and that's it.

i got to the gym 3x last week and this week my goal is 3 or 4 times. i'm going to do yoga tonight (dvd). i hope everyone is doing well!! i miss blogging and i'm going to try to get back into it.

wedding planning is going well, we have a venue and picked a bakery. we're doing cupcakes instead of a cake. it's going to be so cute, i can't wait.

alright...off to do some yoga, miss you ladies!

the plan so far

so i bought jillian michael's book and i've been following her diet plan since monday. she has three seperate food lists for slow, balance & fast oxidizers (depending on a quiz you take). apparently i'm a slow oxidizer so i need a certain percentage of carbs, protein, fat at every meal.

the menu is very similar to phase 3 of south beach diet. limited breads and dairy, lots of lean protein, veggies, fruit, no soda, no alcohol, lots of water. i've done well so far, down 3 lbs so far, and feeling good. one thing i like is she tells you to track your calories with these foods, so i've been doing jillian michaels/weight watchers. i like it, it just feels like i'm making healthier choices. eating almonds, string cheese and strawberries as snacks instead of 100 calorie packs and carby things. i also have aunt flow in town this week...and it's been hard with sugar cravings but i've tried to enjoy the sugar free jello & sugar free fudgesicles. hasn't been easy but what is?

i did the wii fit monday & today and hit the gym today for 35 minutes on the elliptical. i watched oprah yesterday and she said you need to also work out at the speed where you can talk but you don't want to. i tried to do that today and realized i haven't been pushing myself nearly as hard as i can. not a surprise but something to think of.

well that's about it, hope everyones new years resolutions are going well! :)
