Day 340- Fitness Victories and Weigh-in Dilemma!!

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Hey Spark-friends,

Well this morning I wanted to do both the missed video from Tuesday and today's video, oversleeping happened again however and so all that I did was the Focus T25 Rip't Circuit video which was on the calendar for today. Now this video is a good one, it goes in a circuit of cardio, upper body, lower body and abs and there are about 4 or 5 circuits. Is is a tough video? Yep, a little but not as tough as Total Body circuit from the Alpha phase!!

Anyway I kicked its butt!! I TOTALLY nailed it, 4-count push-ups, plank jumps into single leg burpees, high switch kicks and all!! This morning was my best effort at this video since starting the beta phase so emoticon I also did my 25 push-ups and kicked butt there as well!! emoticon I did 13 push-ups in the first set which is less than my best so far of 14 but hey I'm still happy and I finished all 25 in 2 minutes AGAIN!! emoticon

Now food wise I have even less calories left for the day than yesterday!! I only have 64-414 calories left for the day!! Luckily though I only have my protein goal to meet which is off by 15 grams so I only need a protein rich meal that can satisfy that deficit and stay within my calories. I haven't decided yet what I'm going to eat though.

In other news, I'm thinking of moving my weigh-ins to once a month or at least every two weeks. I'm thinking about doing this because for about the first 4 weeks I was scale free and those 4 weeks were emoticon I looked for motivation in looking slimmer, my clothes being looser, my workout efforts getting better!! But then I decided to start weighing and taking my measurements every week again because my Focus T25 calendar has a day scheduled for that with spaces to record the measurements and I've found that the past 3 weeks haven't been as fulfilling since I've started that. It's making me all focused on the numbers again and I don't think I like that! Numbers don't necessarily show your progress as much as what I mentioned above and then with numbers too it's like my goal is just to see them go down while before I was more focused on being fit and healthy. I love your thoughts on this because I haven't made up my mind yet. I do know however that

Anyway that's all for now. As always thanks for your time. emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad you didn't let the over sleeping stop you from killing it in area. Chal I'm glad you are aware what is working for you. Not everyone is the same in this journey and you gotta do what works for you. In the beginning weighing daily was awful because I let numbers control my emotions and define me. Now I can weigh daily and handle it like a science experiment. emoticon
