LilySlim Weight loss tickers

Ready to Roll

Thursday, June 7, 2012

I am feeling so much better at the moment, I feel like I am back to my old self and ready to continue on with my journey :) 

I have lost a tiny bit of weight bringing my total loss (as of this morning)  to 19.1 kg (42 lb).  My exercise has still been non-existent, but I have plans to change all of that as of today.  I am going to re-start the 30 Day Shred.  I know it's going to hurt, but I also know that's it is totally worth it.

bring it on!
I also have plans to start the 100 push-ups program and re-start the 200 squats program.  I figured that I could do both together considering one uses legs and the other arms - it just made sense to me.  My treadmill will be making a comeback as well.  I have missed my intervals, they always make me feel so good.  

I actually managed to run outside the other day.  It wasn't far at all, but it's a start.  Hubby and I had taken the kids to the park which is next to a football oval.   I did one lap (told you it wasn't far) of the oval with a child on either side of me holding my hands.  It wasn't the easiest way to run, but I was happy with the fact that it was outside.  I am even considering going back to the oval to run, I feel more comfortable running there than on the roads.

Alan and I went for a bike ride the other day and I only had 1 accident.....

Of course Alan dropped his bike and rushed to my side to help me up nearly fell off of his bike from laughing so hard. I wasn't hurt so we continued to ride for around 30 mins.  We stumbled upon a fantastic bike / running track that we will be sure to visit again.  It will also be a great place to take the kids riding.  The tracks are all cemented with painted lines - they are just like mini roads and it's all set in parkland with no roads in sight.  I can't believe we've never been there before!

I have officially cancelled my gym membership and I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  If feels so good to not have to worry about what time it is and whether or not I have time to get to the gym.  I can do the 30 Day Shred in the time it takes me to get to and from the gym.  The only thing I will miss is the weights and possibly the cross-trainer (purely for the calorie burn).  I am still considering joining the 24 hour gym in July, but I'll just wait and see how I feel then.

  1. WOOOHOOOOOOO well done on the loss - I can't tell you how happy I was to read this just now - good for you - great job !!!!

    Thanks for the 100 push-up and 200 squat links - am going to print them out at work tomorrow and see if I can incorporate them into my exercise. Plus I might add some sit-ups in there.

    Sorry to hear about your bike accident - I believe you have to have one stack before you can call yourself a rider !!!!! Glad to hear you are OK though.

    My most favourite exercise is RUNNING (just in case you weren't sure LOL !!!!) I base it on distance. I don't know if I could run on a treadmill - I did when I hired one after Al had his operation and I didn't want to leave him at home and go walking by myself - but I much prefer running outside (except when it is cold - but I go anyway !!!)

    Have the best Friday ever !
    Love, hugs and positive energy.

  2. So happy for you!!! Happy about it all - the loss, the plan, finding new places to exercise outside, etc. :)

    You know I was working out at the gym all of the time, but school is out tomorrow, so I'm going to be doing a DVD workout here at home daily. I will add running outside a couple times a week and possibly taking my kids to the gym a couple days a week so I can use the cardio equipment. It's on the military base and near a pool, so I said I'd take them to exercise before we swim. They are into it! They are 14, 14 and 11. :) I couldn't do this when they were younger.

    My favorite right now is running, but I enjoy a quick, hard Jillian workout too. (That's my summer plan..I'll be posting it in a week or so.)

    I've always based my workouts on time so far.

    Have a great one! :)

  3. hahahah laughed outloud at your hubbies reaction to the stack! So the same as what mine would have been - seriously though I'm glad you are ok!

    Answers to your questions:

    Do you workout from home, the gym, both or elsewhere? Work out at gym with classes and weights / outside with walking and running and netball.

    What is your favourite exercise to do?
    Love boxing.

    What do you base your workouts on?
    I feel for everybody in my gym classes cause they have to go until I have burnt 600 calories and I burn slow. very slow.
