unconditional

When I run on the elliptical in the morning I like to watch something to keep my mind off running.  😉  It is hard to find new things all the time, but I recently chose the movie Unconditional.  I really like it!  I love that one of the main characters is based on the life of a real life person.  This man changed the lives of so many kids.  I love kids!  So when a person puts his/her comforts on the line to change the lives of our future…well, it is a winning story for me and I highly recommend that you watch it!

Speaking of the elliptical…kind of…I was so good eating healthy since the summer and even through Christmas and New Years, but I got burned out of eating healthy and took a brief hiatus.  Amazing how all that progress can go away so quickly.  😦  Therefore… I am back to healthy starting today.  I had a healthy breakfast and a great run on the elliptical this morning.  I feel good and am actually ready to get back into the healthy routine.  As yummy as being unhealthy can be, my body really doesn’t feel good when I am unhealthy.  So I am ready to feel good again.  🙂

Matthew 6:25-27

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

 

 

Day 10

After 10 days I realize I need help!  I have no problem working out.  I have a problem controlling my food intake.  I used to be quite disciplined and am failing greatly!  Due to the working out, the damage is slow going, but it is still damage.  I do okay and than have one tiny slip up that leads to a landslide of disastrous dietary choices.

I decided that it is mostly mental.  If I followed my plans that I constantly write out for myself I would be the weight I want to be right now.  So I decided I need to whip my mind into shape along with my body.  I am going to assume with my mistakes in eating that I am now at a BMI of 20.8.  Surprisingly the internet says that 20.85 is the perfect BMI for women, which I wish was true, but then why would the menfolk drool over the tv/moviestars with BMIs of 18 or less.  (Yes, they are all beautiful despite their weight, but I digress).  I will not reveal my weight, just my BMI.

I am not going to weigh myself again until August 7th (2 weeks from today)

My goal is to be at a BMI of 20.3 on August 7th

My goal is to be at a BMI of 20.0 on August 21st

My goal is to be at a BMI of 19.6 on September 4th

My goal is to be at a BMI of 19.1 on September 18th

I believe these are doable and healthy goals.

To get a jumpstart for the next 3 days…Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I will be eating only 1200 calories.  Healthy, but difficult.

After that I am going to strive to stick to a modified P90X diet of 1300-1500 calories a day.

When I reach my goal of 19.6 BMI I am going to reward myself with some sort of ice cream or milkshake treat.  🙂

When I reach my goal of 19.1 BMI I am going to reward myself with an Onion Blossom from Chili’s.

Now I have kicked the accountability up a notch because I have dates and standards to live up to.

Workout today was light…arm and shoulder weight lifting regime.

And I did do the yoga and Linda yesterday.  🙂
