Healthy Train Tuesday: Two Week Catch-Up!

Healthy Train Tuesday

You'll notice that this isn't the usual template. I am trying to change things up a bit. Different questions are good. Breaks up the routine. Also, I didn't want to give two weeks worth on some answers because well it's boring. I'm not totally sure what the different questions should be, so if you have suggestions, lay them on me!

Past Two Weeks Loss: .8 pounds
Total Loss: 71.5 pounds

Starting Weight: 239 pounds
Current Weight: 167.5 pounds

Pounds to goal weight: 17.5 pounds

What I noticed was different about my body:
While I was in Phoenix, I allowed myself to have whatever I wanted. I decided to get it out of my system. I think part of the internal struggle with food is that sometimes we get so focused on what we shouldn't have that it becomes all consuming. So the entire time I was on vacation, I ate what I wanted. My stomach did not like it at all. In fact for the two days after I got back, I spent a good portion of it in the bathroom.

This week, I haven't wanted anything bad.

In other news, I really need to work on my arms. I don't want to do Crossfit. I know some people love it, but I don't think it's gonna be for me. That being said, I need to find something for my arms and tummy. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. 

Personal Goal for this week:
  • Hit four runs and cross train three times. 
  • Allow myself to go 3-4 points above my daily points a day.
  • Be productive every day.
Favorite Quote for this week:

"Let us run with perseverance, the race marked out before us." - Hebrews 12:1

What I’m looking forward to: Change. I can feel it coming. I'm not sure where, but I feel it in my bones.

Happy Tuesday!

bodybuilding.com is a great resource for finding workouts for specific areas. This is my current favorite shoulder workout

I think hands down the best thing for all around muscle tone, including arms, is BodyPump. It's a one hour, all over muscle class. It's hardcore, works every major muscle group, and it fun! You do have to make sure you have proper form before you join the class - they can help with that some in the class, but since it's a group, you won't get the same one on one focus as you would with a trainer. It will definitely change your body!

Sometimes I cheat on my diet too. And then I spend so much time in the bathroom that I wish I wouldn't have.

I agree with the other commenter about Body Pump. I think you'd LOVE it.
