Long time... not post... new pant size

So it has been a long time since I have posted. I have been lazy and along with not eating right I haven't posted. I have been going to class (but missed some as well) but I felt like I haven't really been doing as well as I should be. We have had family in town visiting and I finally had some alcohol. I can say that I don't really miss the alcohol and I could easily get stop the drinking and not ever miss it. I have eaten horribly (at least to me). I have had a ton of foods I haven't had in a long long time. My scale showed the results of my poor eating habits. I need to turn it around and get back on the wagon and keep moving forward.
The good thing I went shopping this weekend and have went from a size 20 to a size 16!  I haven't been in a 16 in a very very long time! I am excited to know that soon I won't be able to shop at lane bryant and will be able to pick up my stuff at any store I want. So here is what has been going on and why I have been MIA. I will be back to blogging, eating right and going to boot-camp!

It doesn't pay to not eat right

So after 6 weeks of the BIRK bootcamp I was able to let the diet wagon stop for a little bit. Now I didn't go off the rails or anything BUT I did get a little lazy on the eating right. Well the scale showed it (not much BUT it did go in the wrong direction) and today my at my CORE class I felt it. My stomach hurt and I was sluggish (more than normal). I will say that I will get back to the healthy eating again and not let myself feel this way again.
This has to be a lifestyle change more than a "right now" change. I will stay the course for myself and my family.
I also need to really keep on running.... If I want to keep my current time for this summer I must continue to run at least once a week...
Good to be back at class and kicking ass!

New run time!

So today was our last run of the session. It was a cold and dark morning. We started our run and I really tried and tried to run with little to no walking. I managed to do that. I finished my run time in 10:42! Yes!! I can't believe it!! Tomorrow is weigh-in and measurements. I am hoping to be at my personal goal... To do that I need to lose 2 pounds by tomorrow. Think I can do it?

13 Pounds! Hell week day 2

This weekend I watched what I ate but still had some food I wouldn't normally eat and my weight didn't go up (Thankfully) but it didn't go down either. I was at least happy I hadn't done to much damage with the chips and salsa I had.
This is the last week of the 6 week class I started back on Jan 2. The have called this week HELL week. Monday's workout wasn't to bad. Today's workout... kicked my ass! It was a very challenging one at that. The hour went by really fast but I know tomorrow I am gonna be sore. Heck, I am already sore. So anyway I got on the scale this morning and was so surprised at the number! I have lost 13 pounds!! I never in my life thought I could ever EVER do that. I want to be 205 by Thursday which is our last measurement and weigh-in day. If you remember my scale and their scale are not friends BUT I will keep whatever MY scale says since it's the one I use. I am excited to see how many more inches I have lost since the last weigh-in. We also have our last run of the session tomorrow... yes running again and this time in the dark! and maybe even snow. Well I am going to do it no matter what because I want to finish strong.
I am glad my birthday is Saturday because I have NO pants that will stay up on any longer. I have to wear capris (IN THE WINTER). I have 2 pants that are more summerish that I can wear and that is it. No jeans and my shirts are way to baggy as well. So Thankfully I will be shopping a little this weekend before I am forced to just wear my workout stuff 24/7.

Weekends are the hardest

I don't know what it is about weekends but I tend to be more careless about what I eat. Don't get me wrong I don't go crazy and have whatever I feel like (not that I don't want to). After grocery shopping yesterday we went and had a doughnut. Sweet sweet awesome doughnut. It was awesome! I haven't had something that sweet in at least 6 weeks! I did notice that the doughnut was much sweeter than I remember. Perhaps it's my lack of sweets lately. So to combat my doughnut I went on a mile run. I walked less than I have in the bast and my time improved. It went from 16:41 to 15:23 to 15:10! Eating healthy is hard when all you want is bad stuff. I vow to not cut out all of our yummy food I now just have to find different ways of cooking it. I made shredded chicken red chile enchiladas they were so yummy. I used ancient grains tortillas which is basically quinoa and some other grains I have never heard of. For one tortilla it was 100 calories filled it was prob around 250 but it wasn't fried and I used very little cheese and fat free sour cream. So there you go proof that you can still have some kick ass food just made a little differently.
This is my last week of BRIK boot-camp and then starts the core boot-camp. Basically the only difference I can tell is that during BRIK they want you to detox and eat clean and the core is exercise and not so much the nutrition aspect. Not to say we can just eat what we want.
I have tried to take the BRIK nutrition aspect of the program and fit it to my family. When a diet cause so much stress in my opinion it is not worth it. So we have fit a new diet plant to fit our lives. It must be working because Josh has lost 12 pounds I have lost 11 and Alexa has not complained with the change of diet and foods. We have lot's to learn and everyday is a challenge for me. I want to lose about 4-5 more pounds by my birthday on the 11th so this week I am going to commit to 2 shakes a day and no very little carbs.
Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement. It has made me want to push myself harder and farther.

Lesson learned

So after 30 days of eating healthier than we ever have we decided to eat out and not at a very healthy place. We went shopping in January and managed to eat everything we bought. Our cabinets were bare our fridge was bare so we went out to eat and then grocery shopping. So we went to eat at Round Table pizza because I really really wanted to have some damn pizza made by someone else other than me! So I had a salad before hand and then came the glorious pipping hot pepperoni pizza. I had at least 3 pieces...! It was so good. Perhaps it's because I haven't had restaurant pizza in over a month. So cut to grocery shopping I didn't feel over full I felt satisfied... it did feel a little "heavy". Josh mentions to me "no wonder we have been eating healthy my stomach is really hurting". I still felt fine. Cut to 4:20 am when my alarm goes off I get up to get ready for yoga day at boot-camp. My first stop is always the bathroom (TMI) and that is where I learned a lesson... after 30 days of eating healthy, pizza was not a good choice! My stomach hurt so bad and well other things were going on. I felt if I went to class I may not like the outcome. So after 15 minutes in the bathroom. I crawl back into bed and go back to sleep. I feel better now but boy lesson learned! I know we need to learn how to go out to eat and eat right. Does this mean the end of eating pizza out? maybe instead of 3 pieces I should only have 1...
I am back on track today... have a shake and ready to do some yoga on my own today because I am REALLY sore!
