BrandyRelaxing's Journal, 20 June 2011

This week, I'm going to try to see if I can work to get my weight loss back to 2 pounds per week.

So here's the things I'm going to work to change:

1. While staying within my 1,900 calorie max, increase my protein to more than 100g per day with real food. Ideally 120g, but we'll see.

2. Exercise 5 times per week
a. 3 times - Slouch to 5K (Thanks Kat!)
b. 2 times - 20 minutes on the elliptical
c. 3 times - free weights combined with one of the types of cardio

So we'll see how it goes!

Well I did try the "slouch to 5K" last night... and it wasn't as easy as I thought... The 3.0 speed on my treadmill can't be the same one as the elliptical, because I can easily go 3.6-3.8 on the elliptical, but on the treadmill (right now anyways) walking was about 3.0 or 2.9 - and jogging - well it was only around 4.2 - I'm not sure that's the right speed,but we'll see. I think it's miles per hour, but I haven't checked the manual yet.

It's a lot of little goals - and just more about being consistent and planned with my exercise, rather than haphazard and fitting it in when I can. I've started a little schedule in excel showing what I will do each day (or if it's a rest day) so I can work to plan my life around that!

Very true that elliptical speed is not the same as treadmill speed. And when I first started, my jogs were right around 4.0 mph so it was definitely slow. I didn't worry about speed at all until I actually began training for a 5k, & that was MONTHS after I started. I am a total Excel nerd so using that to keep a schedule will definitely help motivate you. Make sure you track your distance for each session too!

I had tracked my speed and time, but you're right, I forgot my distance - which was only 1.91 miles. I guess that is a key factor to watch, if you can up the distance in the same 40 minutes, then it's showing improvement!

The protein should help your energy and being more full while you increase working out. Good for you. It is not east if you don"t eat right. Good calories as as important as exercise.
