Artsguru's Journal, 30 May 2012

Still working at it. Working out five days a week. Mondays is Nike Fit Club with Claudine at 24 hour fitness, Tuesday is training with Anda, and a spin class every so often (like today); Wed. is spin with an occasional workout before, following Anda; Thursday is Body Pump at 24 Hr. fitness with Claudine, when I force myself to go, since Wed. night is a late night with bowling (about twice a month); Friday might be bootcamp with Mark at 24Hr, tennis or a run. The last two months, I've also worked out a couple of times at Park La Brea with an outdoor group train with Anda and the girls.

Started feeling a little overwhelmed with all of the money I've spent with training; but had a good talk with Anda today and I feel I'm close to my goal of lossing the last 20 lbs and shedding 10% bodyfat. What I need to start doing is eating more calories to sustain my weight workouts, eat more often; can't forget the protein shakes or high protein snacks and most importantly, need to reduce alcohol and my sweet treats, even if they are Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches with only 150 calories. More protein with my veggies and salads and longer workouts with intense bursts of energy.

I'm giving myself June and July to "shred", high intensity workouts, and lots of cross training (I've started swimming again). I'm going to do another triathelon in October, and need to find another race to do this summer.

In retrospect, even though it's been three years, I know that I'm on the right track, I've made the comittment to the lifestyle change.
174.0 lb Lost so far: 14.0 lb.    Still to go: 10.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

You are making great strides, and remember if it was easy...everyone would have it. Sometimes I have to stop myself from beating myself up. Sometimes, a diet sounds easier, just get it over with. But then.....what? Go back? I refuse! This is a lifetime journey, and like life the one thing that can be guaranteed is it NEVER stays the same. All you can do is stick to your guns and push through, there are many obstacles that awaits.....FINISH STRONG!!
