I’m back!!!

It’s been a while since i’ve posted anything.  I fell off the wagon for a bit due to wrist surgery.  I’m finally cleared to start running and working out.  I feel so much better now that i’m able to be active again.

I’ve got a few short term goals that I’m going to post to keep me motivated:

1. Lose 10-15 pounds in the next 12 weeks.
2. Run a couple of 5k races and complete the dirty girl mud run in September
3. My #1 goal that I have put last because I can’t guarantee this will happen but I would like to do a fitness photoshoot and have my son Owen in some of the poses as my little fitness assistant.

Starting this week i’m really going to focus on keeping track of my macronutrients along with what i’m eating and what time i’m eating along with any physical activity i’m doing.

My macronutrient guidelines are as follows:

Calories = 1800

Carbs = 247g

Protein =112g


Below is what I had Monday, May 14, 2012

I worked out at 8:45, below is my workout schedule


Bent Over Dumbbell Row

Lat Pulldown

Alternate Dumbbell Curl

Did 2 sets of 10-12 reps and a third set until failure.  My wrist was giving me a bit of pain so I really couldn’t push as hard as I wanted too.

I then did the following interval schedule on a bike:

½ cucumber with sea salt

I had about 3 bottles of water today.  I need to work on consuming more water throughout the day.

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

9:40 a.m small banana (I forgot my shredded wheat so unfortunatley, it wasn’t much of a breakfast)

10:30 a.m 1 cup strawberries

12:30 p.m. 2.5 oz steak
Tomato basil wrap with mixed greens
2 tbsp feta cheese

2:45 p.m   ½ Darryl Bar
6 all dressed bread sticks
2 tbsp hummus

5:00 p.m. running for 20 minutes. (I tried running for 90 seconds and walking for 60 seconds and kept alternating. I didn’t last long this way and i’m not sure if it was because it was so hot out or because I had my son in the stroller.  I may have to alternate at 60 seconds each time.

6:00 p.m. Protein Shake
1/2 cup stir fry veggies ( I did not like these so I doubt I even ate 1/2 cup).

10:30 p.m. Yes, late I know.  I got an amazing recipe from a friend for protein balls (recipe to be provided) and I can’t believe how amazing these things are.  My husband even loves them.  However, at this time at night I was only able to eat 1 of the and it took alot of determination to not eat another.  I also had half a cucumber with a bit of sea salt.

It’s been a good week so far, although really busy.  I will report back soon 🙂
