Starting Over

All this time has past and I thought I had myself under control!! Well I was foolin' myself, cause I'm not in control!! I let myself get outta control and that's not a good feelin' at all! But I'm back on track...finally!

I haven't weighed myself, but I started using the Nike+ Running app!! I have the Nike running sensor that I use in a pouch on my Asics. So far, I'm jogging 30 mins per session on the treadmill or outside. I'm averaging between 2.15-2.35 miles depending on if I'm outside or on the treadmill. I think I'm going to get a gym membership at a local sportsclub because they have an inside track. It's kinda difficult for me to breathe while outside when it's hot, so if I choose to go to the sportsclub, I can run on the indoor track...which will be awesome!!

However, starting on Sun. May 18, I'm gonna start back up with the South Beach Diet, or my version of a low carb diet. I know with my PCOS, it's more difficult for me to lose weight if I eat carbs...well, if I eat 'bad carbs' like white bread or white potatoes. So I'm going to get focused and definitely incorporate weight/strength training 3-4 days a week and jogging at least 5 days a week for 30mins at least. My goal with the running is to at least jog for 30 mins and if my legs and breathing can take it I'll keep going...but I ultimately wanna go for at least 3.2 miles each running session, so if I have to walk then run the rest of the time, I will. I'm going to get fit...I'm going to get strong...I'm gonna get my sexy back....!!

So here's what I'll be changing starting Sunday...

  1. Drink a liter of water EVERYDAY!
  2. Eat 3 meals and 2 snacks
  3. Log my calories on
  4. At least 1hr workout per day 6 days a week
  5. 4 days strength training...5 days jogging
  6. Vitamins daily
  7. NO MORE SCALE...I'll be measuring my loss by my clothing fit instead of the scale.
And I think that's all for now...oh yeah...I'm gonna start setting monthly goals at the beginning of each month...Then, if I meet my goals, I'll give myself a reward at the end of that month...the 30th or 31st. Woohoo!! I can do this
