Week4 of cdcc

So this week has been very productive, I have been drinking 10 glasses of water everyday. I have been working out for a total of a hour each day, i weight myself this morning and because I didn't have a proper weighin last week, guess what... I'm 170. So I lost 8 lbs in 2 weeks. I am sooo happy with myself, I guess I will buy those shoes for my reward.. I'll put pictures up when I put them on. My average calorie intake this week has been 1210 , but after working out it was 1436. I guess I am doing something right. Thanks everyone for the support. I really do appreciate it. I also hope everyone else is successful:)

Oh I bought my new Christmas dress as you can see since the other one was out of stock..;)

my new workout plan:)

i have started a new workout regime every night after i eat dinner, i ride my stationary bike for 20-25 minutes at 21 mph, i then do 20 minutes of yoga and finish with 5 minutes of stomach crunches; while during the day i walk for 25 minutes with my weights and i try to consume 1200 calories a day but after my workouts yesterday and eating healthy i had 1290 calories left..i had to redo the math and made sure i didn't skip any foods and drinks. the good thing is i didn't but now i know i can consume a little more without beinging and overdoing on my diet. i wanted to lose at least 3 lbs this week and i have been avoiding the scale until i am open to any ideas on what i can do to consume less and still burn a fair amount of calories.
i have to buy more fruit because while i was in the hospital with my son my daughter had a

Week 3 of cdcc

Unfortunately this week hasn't been good, my son was put in the PICU for his asthma, he came home last night but has to be monitored and given nebs every 4 hours, the only type of workout I was able to do was pace his bed and hold him. I was forced to eat so I only ate 1000 calories this week. I know this isn't healthy at all but my son was more important at the time. I don't know my weight as of right now so I'm going to say I'm still 178. I will improve on my calorie intack this week and get back on tract, I promise. Sorry this post is not as positive as my other ones but my mind is else where.

Week 2 summary of cdcc

So I didn't get to exercise 3 days a week for a hour but I managed to do at least a half an hour for 30 minutes. I almost went over my calorie intake by 200 calories wanting a doughnut; but I chose a fruit cup and some water instead and it left me 25 calories shy..I weighed myself I havent Lost any weight just a few that's kinda disappointing; I'm still 178 but since last week I'm 178.3.. I have started walking more and adding a occasional jog in. Since the weather has been acting like a little nut my asthma won't allow me to do to much; I'm not going to let that hinder me at all. My crutch is my health and in order to overcome it i have to improve it.I am still trying to consume 8-10 glasses of water, 2 days this week I only did 4-5 cups.I guess some water is better than none.I have started doing crunches and push ups to work on my belly; not to mention my ZUMBA:)..I even have the kiddies joining in.I'm kinda upset the dress I was gonna get this weekend is sold I may have to find another.My goal for this upcing week is to lose 2 pounds,more will be better but less isn't a option.*perfect imperfections *

cdcc day 4

today has been really inventive i taught myself how to workout in the office using the supplies laying around..with that being said i did 15 pull ups with a cane propped up through a door,i used the step stool as a prop for push ups and step aerobics while holding 2 full containers of bleach.since my daughter came to work with me today i played a game of tag running around the office for 15 minutes. So with that being said i think i did my 30 minutes of workouts today hopefully i can do 20 minutes of zumba since i did not get it completed last night. i was thinking maybe we all can do a group workout session..its just a idea so let me know what you think.;)

a little discouraged

So when i initially started my weight loss i was 187 now I'm 180, i did get down to 178 but cheated a few days which put me back to 180. I am more determined than ever to lose not only baby weight but to get back down to a healthy state of mind. i do not want to lose no more than 50 pounds, i requested to join a weight loss blog group but since I'm new to blogging i am pretty sure i wont get accepted, i have to stay optimistic about that though.I know i can do this weight loss challenge on my own it will be better with the support of others but maybe I'm meant to do it alone.I would love to lose 50 pounds in 14 weeks but if not i  want to lose it all before my birthday next year. I will be a happier me,i will be able to say I'm 25 and 50 pounds lighter:).i have cut out all sweets, i am thinking about becoming a vegetarian again. i was way more healthy then and what i lacked in protein wise i would take vitamins for;i had less problems with my asthma and vision when i was smaller in weight. they say life is about choices and it time for me to make mine and get back on the right track,after i was given a second chance of life i need to make the best of it.And that is what i will do.I WILL LOSE THIS WEIGHT, I WILL DO LOSE IT BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY,I WILL BE A BETTER ROLE MODEL NOT ONLY TO OTHERS BUT MY CHILDREN, SHOWING THEM THAT YOU CAN EAT RIGHT AND STILL BE HAPPY WITH YOURSELF!!!

Weight loss

Trying to lose weight on my own is harder than it looks, I have people from both sides saying," you don't need to lose weight.your a black girl and they ae suppose to be thick." but the truth is I am really unhPpy with myself, well with how much weight I have gained I used to be 115 before I had my children, and now I'm pushing 180 for someone who isn't use to being a size 15-16 its really bothersome.I try to workout but with 2 small children it's hard to find time. I'm at the point where I need to make myself happy.I am officially going to lose 45lbs and be happy with myself so I will be able to keep up with my children and make myself feel better emotionally.I have started eating no more than 1300 calories a day, doing 20 minutes of zumba,drinking more than 8 glasses of water a day.I want to be down to a size 11-12 by christmas and be a size 8 by my birthday next year. I have to be my own coach and my children are my motivation:)....I CAN DO THIS AND I WILL SUCCEED!
