Kinda Late but never Lost!

Saturday, March 30, 2013

I know I have been behind on my posts on the way I look but here I am. Catching up on week 8. It was kinda an eventful week. If it wasn't one thing it was another. Stress has been a HUGE factor for me this week. I mean I have had my nerves and stress control put to the test all week. Not in a good way either. I have even entered into over 100 giveaways to see if my luck would change and nope. Haven't won anything. I was about to just slip down into a major depressive state again. It had been that bad of a week. I have to give a special thanks to my SPA sisters for being their for me and helping me stay strong and keep my head up.

I have been trying to train a lot this past week for the Pretty Muddy Woman's Mud run. I have been super excited and counting the days till it happens. It looks awesomely fun.
With things putting my stress and body to the limit this week, my weight loss has kinda slowed down a bit but I am gonna try to boost it into over drive this next week. The awesome news is that in the 10 weeks I have been on this weight loss journey, I have lost 13 lbs :) Yeah I know If things would have been better in my eating and working out along with less stress, I would have lost more. This week I am going to try to fix that. Starting with drinking at least 125 oz of water a day, eating at least 50% of my food fresh fruits and veggies and NO SUGAR or PROCESSED FOODS! These are evil when it comes to me and my journey. All they cause is more fat on my mid-drift. The first week of April, I am taking on the no sugar challenge. Meaning for a full week, I will not eat processed foods or sugar. Focusing on the healthy eating and the better me.

I can't even begin to tell you how important it is to drink enough water. If you are trying to lose weight and you are not drinking enough water, you will end up losing weight and inches as slow as I have been. The best way to see the amount of water you are suppose to be drinking is actually a simple equation. Take your weight, divide by 2. That will equal the amount of water you need to drink. For example, if you weight 150, you will need to drink 75 oz of water a day. If you weigh 250, you will need to drink 125 oz of water a day. That is kinda my downfall. I drink between 86-135 oz a day. I am suppose to be drinking around 125oz minimum. Don't make the same mistake I make. Your body is 75% water. So it is a given you need water. Without it, your body holds on to everything to keep it hydrated. That is bad for anyone trying to lose weight.

Well here you go, My long over due week 8 picture :)
