End of May 2014 Check in

Sunday, June 01, 2014

Its been a good and hard month, I've had to fight myself when I feel lazy about working out, I have to fight myself and not think of Magnums new chocolate infinity ice cream, but I'm getting into a routine and improving everyday, and the numbers are improving. My muscle mass has increased to 20.3% and my body fat is down emoticon emoticon Weighed in last Wednesday at 312, and this afternoon a little higher for a mini BLC.
So far I have a set routine of going to the gym at least 4 times a week, I take walks on the weekend, jump on my trampoline, or go to Zumba. I'm working on having a set time each weekend when I say to myself "Girl go workout" and I just go.
The nutrition still needs a lot of work, I've been planning and packing meals, but there are meal times/days when I just want something else and I venture off the plan. My new goal will be to come up with ways of dealing with these situations. My mom says to focus and take 10 deep breath as if I'm in a Yoga class and if I still want to go off the plan then... Jamie (Spark Friend) does something similar, she holds off 10 minutes or so and if she still wants it, she has it in moderation, and 90% of the time the urge passes. Also, I've been drinking a big cup of water, to fight off the urges. What do you guys do? Need suggestions people!!!!
You know when you're on a challenge and you start running out of steam, well works been crazy, and the 12 week BLC just got me to rev my engines with the amazing race weekend challenge, love it emoticon. I have had some weird meals and soda this weekend, putting a stop to that one right now. I've been more active than I usually am on this weekend since I'm helping my neighbor move, not a good influence on my nutrition though.
I'm also doing a quick 4 week BL mini challenge, I bet 16 dollars on Dietbet, and Lord knows I want to cash in. Focus focus focus!!!!
Last but not least, my goal for the end of June is 301!!!!! I know for a fact that if I focus, and give it 100% I can surpass this. Eat healthy whole meals, track it all, and exercise, repeat!!!!!

    I agree (and need to do the same) about not having trigger foods in the house. When we did Paleo for a week before hubby went to vegas for work we had no sweet stuff in the house and I was snacking on grated cheese, I ate way less of it and less calories than having biscuits in the house and lost weight because of it. I also keep a glass of water in the fridge and then I still get the "open the fridge and browse" feeling but I drink water then walk away. 301 what a great goal! I love the idea of diet bet, I was thinking about doing that but just with myself or hubby, like put $20 a fortnight away and if I havent lost 20kg by December then I don't get it back to spend at the Katy Perry concert... hmmm I thought about that as I typed it and that sounds great. Thanks for the idea creating.

    My only suggestion for fighting cravings is to not have your trigger foods in the house. If they're not there, there's less chance you'll actually go out to get what you're craving. Or at least, that's the way it is for me. I don't live never any stores and would actually have to drive to one if my craving was that intense and that's never happened in my experience.

    Good luck.
