The Incredible Shrinking Krista

Sunday, March 27, 2011


After nearly a month of working out 4-6 times per week and am still stuck at a weightloss of 7 pounds for the year.  I am really getting to a point of frustration, but I WILL NOT allow it to make me quit my journey to health.  I am going to keep on this journey regardless of how long it takes me to reach my goal!  All that being said, I am taking a break today.  My birthday was a month ago and we are having my birthday dinner today at my mom's house.  Swiss steak, Mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, and lemon cupcakes with lemon icing.  As I continue on this journey, the reality is that there will be times when I don't follow this new eating style, like on my birthday, so I don't feel guilty for doing it.  I will definitely eat less than I normally would, and will be at the gym tomorrow to work off anything I eat.  I'm also going to be changing up my workout routine.  So--here's what my new workout routine is going to look like. 

I will be up daily at 5:30 to workout.  If I am taking a class at the gym that evening, I will be walking on the treadmill, but if I am not going to be taking a class that evening, I will be doing one of the large number of workout DVD's, like Tae-Bo, Biggest Loser, etc. 

Back on the new eating habits tomorrow....Working out every day except Sunday from here on out.  The other part is that I will be ordering a Bodybugg, or a similar piece of technology to help me track my calories burned on a daily basis. 



  1. Krista - I just found your blog, and I have to say, I think you and I make quite a dominating pair! It's a shame we didn't get to meet on the ranch, we would've been the team to beat! :) You are totally inspiring - even to someone who is herself in a weightloss program!
    I wanted to tell you about the bodybugg - I have mine, and I have been wearing it for 3 days now. I have lost 3 1/2 pounds already! It's AMAZING. It makes you so aware of all of your habits! I would highly suggest you get one - especially with your recent frustration! It may pull you out of it! :)
    Know that I'm with you in this! Let me know if you need anything! We're in this together, girl!

  2. Thanks, Erin...I really do appreciate it. My trainer just squelched my day off by telling me that he expects me to be doing 7-8 hours of cardio/week....So, I really need to step it up!

  3. I've been thinking about getting a bodybug at some point. I think it would be eye-opening!
