The start of the Push phase for ChaLEAN Extreme

So this is the start of week 5 of ChaLean Extreme. I’m a little off schedule since I was sick last week and took it easy on cardio. I was supposed to start Push last night, but instead I went to go see Bon Jovi at the HP Pavillion in San Jose.

The show itself was kind of mellow for a Bon Jovi show – but I still had a great time. I even wore my BodyBugg too! (Am wondering how many calories it will say I burned yesterday).

I’m still at only a 3 pound loss. I really need to up my cardio and limit my calories. (Though not doing too much cardio last week was probably part of the reason why I didn’t lose a pound) The Shakeology has been a huge factor in the 3 pound weight loss so far. Before I would leave the house in the morning without eating breakfast, now I can’t leave the house without having a shake. My favorite is the chocolate Shakeology.  I just love blending that with peanut butter and banana. (Sometimes I use water to limit calories, or I use 2% milk) It’s so damn good – like a regular milk shake but good for you!

Last night at the concert the thought that I was supposed to have started the Push phase kept running through my head. A little obsessive huh? A few months ago that would have never happened. But its like CLARITY just happened. All of a sudden, I know what I want! I found different workouts that I really enjoy and working out is actually fun for me! It’s not something that I dread and rush through it, just to get it done and over with. I enjoy it – its fun for me.

My goal, like I said in a prior post is to lose 15 pounds. That’s all – it may not sound like much to you, but I’m really short. I don’t like having to hide my mid-section. That’s where all the weight goes. Ugh… Buying clothes can sometime suck. Everything always looks cute on the mannequin or the hanger (or a friend), and then I put it on… And all the fat rolls show. Yuck, I hate that. So my goal is to finally lose the muffin-top of a mid-section. Are you with me? Anyone, anyone?

Bad start…

So much for trying to be healthy today.  I broke all the rules. For breakfast I had a venti skinny vanilla latte – that’s it.  I got so busy at work that I forgot to eat breakfast.

By the time lunch came around, I was starving! What did I get?  I hit a french bistro and ordered a croque monsier and french onion soup!  To top it off, there was cake at work, so I had a slice!!  I’m sure I hit the equivalent of 3 days worth of calories in one sitting.

As of now, I feel like a bloated beached whale.  I totally regret eating all that food, but I can’t change the past.  I know that tonight I will have to seriously workout to burn some calories. Wish I could my elliptical machine in front of my TV, then I could workout while watching TV.   But really, I just need to focus and get my lazy ass on to the elliptical machine.  Or do one of the many workout DVDs I have.  It’s gonna be a late night…
