Week 28 In Review and Stepping Stones Week 29

    Pinned Image

     It’s been an interesting week. I have continued my weight training and finished my 5 weeks scheduled with my trainer. I found out my trainer is moving to a new city soon and have decided to get in another month of sessions with him before he goes. After that, with his guidance and recommendations I plan to go it alone but continue to be in the gym. I am planning to start a 4 day a week training schedule soon in an effort to expedite my progress. I have continued my jogging and am very proud to announce that I completed my first uphill/downhill outside solid mile without walking yesterday. Woo Hoo! I didn’t take a stop watch, very focused simply on completing the entire mile without being frightened off by the traffic or the steep incline. However, based on the time on my microwave when I left and returned it was just about 15 minutes for the 1.1 mile trek. On the treadmill I am now doing my 3.1 miles at a 4 mile an hour pace. I put in 11 miles this week and am happy to say that the scales are moving again. There was no weight loss reported on Weigh In Wednesday but I am over two pounds down since and am proud to announce that I have officially lost 80 pounds to date! Again, Woo Hoo!  The plan for week 29 has been slightly tweaked. I will continue to jog and do my weight training. They will be central. Other exercise will simply be added as it meets my desire. I will have as a loose goal to burn 500 calories each exercise day and I will continue to stick closely to my 1400 calorie a day intake goals. I have stopped taking the metabolism boosting multivitamin and am taking vitamin B twice a day, morning and noon. I take D every morning with my  prescription high dose once a week. I am still taking the Raspberry Ketone twice a day. I am trying to eat more high fiber foods and am still avoiding white flour and limiting sugar. My goal fiber intake is 35 grams. I am still losely planning menus but am trying to listen to my bodies cues. If I crave fruit, or protein, or grain then maybe that is what  my body is needing. So far I seem to be less hungry, more satisfied and have an easier time sticking to my calorie goals this way and the weight is coming off better.  Wish me success in Week 29 and much success to you!!!
