Hey peeps, hope everyone is well. I lifted 7910 pounds today. Still not logging, but trying to make good choices.

Claire: Good for you getting back on the wagon! Heh, home improvements may end but ya never stop going to Lowe's :)  

Lifting is going well. Really sore after this first week. I committed to do 6 cardio workouts in July and I've only done one, so less than two weeks to get those in! John's booked us a trip in November with his parents to Grand Cayman to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, so a little over three months to drop at least 10 pounds. It should be totally achievable, but not if I don't get back to making better choices and logging.

Soraya: just because I know I have not been eating right. I looked today, though. I was ready to see the damage. That salad does sound delish! You're really focused and that's great.

Workout B is on my schedule for today, in fact it's the only meeting on my calendar! That means I should be able to get a ton of work stuff done. Plans for the weekend: Saturday we're picking up John's parents from the airport. Sunday we're picking up a friend at the airport and going to dinner, then he'll stay with us overnight. That's about it.

Soraya: crossing fingers for August rather than September, hon. 

I can't believe how sore I am still. I hope I'm recovered enough tomorrow to do it all again, workout B. This week seems to be going by pretty quickly, so that's cool.

Soraya: I dig scale, and it links up with CC so I don't have to log my weight here! Technology is so amazing :) You know you can focus and drop this weight, but it might be so much easier after you see the doctor. You won't know till you go!

Claire: Oooohhhh, 170 over. Gotcha. Meh, that's nothin', like you said. I don't know when I'll look at the scale :) Too bad your walk was rained out. Yes! We're totally excited to see your before/afters. I hear ya about tackling the smaller job first. Gives you a little confidence going into the bigger one. 

I did my first Phase 2 workout A yesterday, only 5190 pounds because I changed to some harder exercises plus it's a 2-4 sets of 10 scheme instead of Phase 1's 2 sets of 15. Since it was new yesterday I only did 2 sets but I'll start working up to 4. Yoga later.

Claire: Good job on your calories (I'm sure you meant 1700) and water. What paint color did you pick?

I just stare out the window when I weigh :) We have that fitbit Aria scale that links to our wifi and logs my weight on my fitbit account. So when I'm ready, I can go see what it was. I did the same thing today HA! We were at the tattoo place 5½ hours, actually tattooing for about 4. I missed yoga yesterday because of a meeting, but still planning NROL today! I haven't been logging. I don't know why. It's really the thing that works.

Soraya: just a data point, just a moment in time. Go to the doctor. I think even if the fibroids aren't directly causing weight gain, the stress load off your body when you get them removed will be freeing in so many ways. ♥

Claire: Cool, dinner and a cocktail sounds like a lovely break during your walk ;) YAY for paint color! I'll do yoga today, wash my hair tonight and start NROLforLife Phase 2 tomorrow!! I'm excited about it. Good job counting calories. 

Here's John's tattoo. He'll go back in a couple weeks to fill in the color of the octopus. He was a smidge freaked out about how big it was, but since his parents are ok with it he's better now :)

Soraya: one slice of free pizza is not inherently bad. I hope you enjoyed it! Good luck with the weigh-in this weekend. No matter what, focus on the positive. It's just a number and nothing else. A data point. I haven't been focusing much on water, but do get 6 glasses most days, so 48oz. More when I work out. 

Starting back up next week with NROL. I blew off today because I got my hair colored last night and I don't want red sweat dripping all over me in public. I'll wash it Sun or Mon which will diminish the red sweat a bit. Oddly it never seem to go away entirely.

Taking hubs to get a new octopus tattoo over his old one tonight. This is his early birthday present.

Soraya: next time your post just disappears, click the back button. I can't remember why I did this one time, but my whole post came right back! Hey, that makes me happy that you're feeling confident and happy enough to get back out there. Have fun!

I've got a hair appointment after work and I know I'll be feeling starved by the time I get home. I'm mentally running through the fridge and pantry trying to figure out what I can make fast that won't be really awful :)

Here's one, but you're not going to like it. Don't be one of those people who ask for advise then don't take it. You really do need to eat more...

eta: and you don't need to lose weight ♥

Lol, I'm always open for advice!  I just thought it was high. But I'm 14, so what do I know!

 

And I'm not looking to lose weight, but cut FAT and gain the weight back in muscle.  This is solely based on the fact that there are ID camps and national events that I will be attending, and I need to gain the muscle so I have an advantage over other goalkeepers!

I'll check out the calculator now.  Thanks!

:) I must be jaded from some other posts on this site. Sorry for making assumptions!

Great goals! eichhorn08 talks about a building then a cutting phase, but at 14 I personally think it's all building/growing/developing into an adult body, both shape and height. Your coach should be able to help you or at least direct you to some good, personalized advise for your situation.

It's not high. You still got organ, brain and bone development goin' on and that takes energy! I'm trying to find the calculator that I've seen recommended, but I'm slow.

Hi. 1400 calories is utterly insufficient for an active growing teenager. Hopefully someone will be along shortly with the teen calorie requirements calculator for you.

Claire: I hope you can recover quickly from this exhaustion!

I missed yoga 'cause of a meeting, but went later and got on the treadmill for 3 miles (1 jog/run, 1 progressive inclines to 10, 1 walk/jog). So one cardio for July down, 5 more to go!

Soraya, are you still loving the job? It's sounding a little stressful :( I hope you got a good night's sleep. It's so important. YES 150's!! We can do it!

I went over calories yesterday, mostly because of some leftover lemon-yummy dessert but also wine. Now thankfully both of those things are gone. Yoga later.
