So traveling.....again

I've been in Houston for almost 2 weeks and will continue on to Monterrey, Mex. for another week. I am madly going to spin classes, because I have again lost control of my food intake. I try to be careful and order lower calorie options, but still I can feel the salt, I can feel it in my shoes.

The other day I tried to go and buy some shoes, I couldn't slide them over my tamale size feet. Even the ones that looked like nurse shoes....UGHHHHHH no wide no double wide, nothing slid over my feet.

SO great. I am still going to spin class almost everyday while I am here. I was going to continue tri training while here, but the pools just looked nasty, I figured why risk getting in, I'll do spin class and on the weekends the ellyptical.

So still not budging on the scale, but! I was able to order clothes online, and slide them right on, yay, me!!!!

Triathlon? Me?

Ok, so I have decided to work my butt off, if nothing else it makes me feel better. I am now working out 6-7 days a week. My gym added a triathlon training class, Mondays and Wednesdays, 1 1/2 hours...it kicks my butt. Bike-Swim-Run. Well. Uh...run, I can't so I walk, I still to heavy to run, and am scared to mess up my knees.

So here's the schedule for the week:
Mon - Tri class and then kickboxing
Tue - Core/Body Pump
Wed - meet with trainer for 1hr and Tri class
Thur - bodypump
Fri - Spin
Sat and Sun 60 minutes of elliptical training!

But here's the deal, I still have lost almost no weight, I've lost a grand total of 2lbs in the last month and a half? I get stressed about the scale, even though I know that my size is going down, so yeah building muscle and muscle weighs more than fat, and bla bla bla....but it is discouraging to lose no pounds. I am watching my diet and keeping myself under 2000 cals. So what gives, I know eventually it will come off. But for now....keep working out...

Plus I have a cool new pair of spin shoes....as I say....Fake it till you make it!

Wow!!! It's July...

So after all my wondering and trying to figure out my body, I have decided to drop all programs and go with the old standard, calories in calories out. I downloaded software to track from www.calorieking.com and am tracking my food intake and workout calories.

I am overweight, I know, and all I can do to fight it is watch what I eat and move more. My grandfather always said that the best diet in the world was eat less, move more. So I have decided to move more, and in a big way.

I joined a triathlon class at the gym, I train swim/bike/run in addition to my regular workout class schedule, spinning 2x week, kickboxing 1x week, and body pump 2-3x week, I have also hired a personal trainer and meet once a week to torture my body.

I feel myself shrinking, tomorrow I'll step on the scale and see where I am on the poundage.....

I will be more diligent in writting here, it gets things off my brain and helps me talk through the weekly grunt!
