Just moved everything over here from blogger, so that I have everything in one place.
So the last post I did was in June? Well, I found out in AUGUST that I had contracted pneumonia shortly after that post. Needless to say, I quit doing the low-carb and the exercise because I was feeling so bad. I had lost about 15 pounds.
I’ve gained it all back, sad to say. But I did quit smoking around the same time that I found out that I had pneumonia. I’m ready to try exercising again. I’m doing the Power 90 program again, but this time I am modifying the schedule so that I don’t get burnt out again. I will continue to modify the schedule as I see fit until I get into good enough shape to do it how Mr. Horton intended it to be done. I am also back on the low carb. This time, I am going to allow myself to make mistakes. I actually did cheat yesterday, a little bit, but its okay. It will happen. I’m not perfect, and I’m not going to set myself up for failure by counting every carby substance that makes its way through my mouth a failure. At the same time, I am going to watch my carbs and my portion sizes. But I figure a sweet treat every now and then will probably be good for me, since that is the one thing that I crave the most, and the one thing that gets me every time. I don’t want to fail, because I have three very specific goals in mind.
The first one is, obviously, to lose weight. I am 100 pounds over my recommended weight right now, and that needs to change for SO many reasons. Anyone who has read any of this blog knows that my boyfriend is diabetic. I think my grandma died of diabetes too, but I’m not sure about that. So I think it runs in my family, and I know it runs in my boyfriend’s family. It is something that I worry about, and I have educated myself pretty well on it. The low carb diet will help in a myriad of ways when it comes to my health.
The next two goals are fitness based. I would like to be able to run a 5K marathon, and I would like to be able to enroll in and participate in a Krav Maga class. If anyone has seen a Krav Maga class, you know that it is extremely challenging and requires a lot of strength and endurance. I definitely have a long way to go before I can handle that class, but I want to get there, and I’m going to try hard.
So I started working out again on the 7th. I worked out on the 7th, 8th, and 9th. By the 10th, I was exhausted and had to take a day off. That is why I am modifying the schedule, because it is obvious to me that I can’t handle the schedule as it stands. But I am going to do what I can and get through it.
