Staying motivated....

is one of the hardest things I have had to do. I am afraid that if I skip one day I won't get back at it. So I am kind of thinking that even if it's only 20 minutes I need to make sure I keep moving!

So far it's working well! Today was a better day swimming. I was able to swim hard and I didn't feel exhausted like I did last week. My HRM is picky. Sometimes it works great in the pool and other times it doesn't. Today it did well! I know I burned more than this because the HRM was giving me fits when I first got into the water. But it worked well for most of the time. So my 30 minute swim results were 182 calories burned.
Today was also a run day. I started week 2 day 1 today. 90 seconds of jogging with 2 minutes of walking. Let me tell you, this is really hard!! I did it tho. There were times when I felt like I was just walking fast but my heart rate was up. And I definitely got my sweat on! I did the 31 minutes of the C25K and followed it up with 10 minutes on the elliptical. 391 calories burned!!
So 573 calories for today! Was a good day!
Today's numbers were good:
Calories: 1073.83
Fat: 29.29
Sugar: 15.54
Protein: 54.82
My protein was a little low. I will work on this.
Tomorrow I am getting another fill. It will be my 4th. Currently I have about 6.25 cc's in my 10 cc band. We will see how much they give me tomorrow. I think I am close to the green zone. Almost. I am still able to eat about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of food at once.
I am going to talk to them about my hair loss too. The doctor said with 60 - 80 grams of protein a day I should not experience hair loss, but I think they lied. Typically I get right around 80 grams a day. I have been a little low the last week or so. Hopefully between the vitamins and the protein my hair will be OK. I know its only temporary and I am trying not to let it get to me. This too shall pass!
In other news, I have graduated from morbid obesity to just plain ole' obese! That's progress! Can't wait to graduate to overweight! :) Categories and stereotypes drive me nuts!
Tomorrow is Hump Day! We are that much closer to Friday! I love that! And it's a 3 day weekend!
Have a great day everyone!


  1. Wow! Great workout! Good luck with the fill!

  2. Woo hoo! Keep up that motivation!

    Keep in mind the hair loss isn't only just from protein alone. There can be lots of other reasons (but definitely make sure you're getting your protein in!)

  3. Woo hoo! Great work. And you reminded me that I haven't checked my BMI category since I started losing weight. I should check that and see if my 36 pounds has gotten me anywhere!

  4. C25K is hard, but you are rocking it out!!

    Congrats on moving down the ole BMI chart!!

    Your hair loss could be lots of things. It could be your shampoo.

  5. Damn, you are killing it on the workouts!!!!

  6. Good job with the workouts! Keep at it!

  7. you are doing so great at getting your sweat on. keep up the awesome job
