I Started Skipping Again!

I have not blogged about my weight for  a while because I just couldn't do it. I couldn't put up a number that would disappoint all those who look up to me. I've been on this journey for more than three years and been only able to lose and keep off 33 lbs. To some of you that's a lot but to me, it's not enough.

These past few weeks we have been experiencing a lot of power cuts in the country due to certain reasons I don't even want to get into. That has sort of put a stop to my morning jogs since I can't be sure of my safety. So, after not working out for almost two weeks it hit me " Why the hell am I not jumping rope?" That's what helped me lose those 33 lbs anyways. So, I resumed my skipping yesterday. Did 1000 jumps in the morning and another 1000 in the evening. :-)

This morning I did another 1200 jumps and I'm hoping to top it up with another 1200 in the evening. All that's left to do is to watch the things I put into my mouth. That has always been the damn problem. lol!

Weigh In No.6, Clean Eating Challenge....

I feel so ashamed that I gained another pound this week. It's my fault. I ate too much junk and even with exercise, diet still accounts for 80%. Dammit! Why did I eat that pie? Was the Chinese takeout really necessary? I won't beat myself up about this. It's a new week and I just got back from my walk/jog. I plan on challenging myself to a clean eating week. And to make it even more interesting, I'm going to give myself a reward for each day that I am able to eat clean. Will give you the details on that later. So this week's rules are as follows:

  • No diet soda
  • No processed juice
  • No pastries, pies, white bread
  • No fried plantain chips
These are my major vices. If I can conquer these I can do anything! Wish me luck folks..... I need it!

Weigh In No. 5, January Recap.....

January has been a great month. I exercised on 26 out of 31 days. Yayy! I also ate more vegetables than ever. I realized that my love for jogging has increased. There's no stopping me now. Even if the weight loss process is a slow one for me, I will persevere to the end.

Previous Weigh In: 207.5 lbs
Today's Weigh In: 207.9 lbs
Gain: 0.4 lbs

Am I surprised? No. Am I upset? No. I'm not surprised because the previous week was very stressful and I think I overdid the carbs a little bit. I'm glad that I did not gain a pound. That would have pissed me off. Lol! Not to worry though. Next week would be better. Besides, I have lost 5lbs in the month of January. That's an achievement for me. Here's to another 5lbs in February.

February, here we come!!!!!

Have a great week folks.
