This morning I learned something new. Don’t wait around for people.
Yes. Yes. You’ve told me this before. and of course I never listen until I learn for myself.
Well I woke up around 6:30 this morning a little later then normal but I was in and out of sleep for like 45 minutes. anyway I knew that I was going to the gym at 8:30am today so i was waiting for my workout buddy to wake up and figured we could eat a light healthy breakfast with all of the new awesome healthy groceries we got and get ready for the gym. She took forever to get up and I realized I could have done a good I would say 30 minute workout before I headed to the gym.
Anyway tomorrow is another day and another day for improvement
treadmill 30 minutes
eliptical machine 30 minutes
100 leg lifts
25 sit ups
Feeling pretty good today with my subway sandwich lunch with a side of red/pink grapefruit.
I really wish my gym looked like this lol
Today I FINALLY made it back to the gym after like a month. lol but I did it
30 min treadmill
30 min elliptical machine
omg was i sweaty. but i felt good. i thought i was going to be in more pain, but i wasn’t :) and I’m feeling so ready for weigh in wednesday with all the new groceries i bought today cause they’re all healthy.
oh that reminds me i gotta boil some eggs. lol
So I went here today and in order to get here you have to walk down a slope and in order to get back to your car you have to walk back up. there was another place we visited and it was closer to the water and much prettier but also took a lot more effort to get to. i felt like i was on a real hike lol i wish we had places like this near where i lived so i could walk around there often it looks so pretty.
eating habits..not so great today but i did buy a whole bunch of fruits and vegetables and healthy foods at the store to eat during the rest of the week.
exercise was hiking for a good i would say hour between all the going up and going down and trying not to slip on the rocks lol
So I did my walking earlier when I cleaned and sweated and then I also did 80 leg raises and I’ll probably do some more later. I’ll keep adding if i do anything else. sundays are slow.
80 leg raises
100 left leg raises (with 2 lbs. ankle weights)
100 right leg raises (with 2 lbs. ankle weights)
100 right arm curls (with 7 lbs. weight)
100 left arm curls (with 7 lbs. weights)
and 100 half stomach curls…? I’m not sure what they were but they worked my abs and arms with that 5 lb weight ball.
*end of edit*
although my exercises didn’t quite make it up to par today, my eating was very well taken care of.
special k with fat free milk
whole wheat tortilla
laughing cow cheese
oven baked chicken
warhead freezer pop
cinnamon graham cracker
quakes rice snacks
i had a few slip ups but honestly nothing and was dramatic because the amount of cake i had was nothing near a whole piece
So as soon as I said it was nice outside, the heat picked up and it began to get a little warm. Instead of going out in the heat and making my sun burn worse, I decided to do some house work and keep moving. I turned on my pedometer on my phone and started doing things the long way. Everytime I folded a shirt i walked across the room to put it away to get my steps up higher. I’m actually tired from all the cleaning i’ve done today and I think tonight I’ll do a few reps of my morning workout. I’ve been doing things the longer way so my room is taking a while to get clean but my pedometer is up in count. I know this isn’t “real” exercise but it’s definitely more then what i was doing before lol but on a better note, i’ve eaten pretty well today compared to others.
I kinda want to go for a walk outside because the day looks so nice. I don’t really want to go by myself though…I’m not too fond of stray dogs and this area right outside my neighborhood. I’ll let you know what happens..
I had the intentions to workout yesterday, but I was still so full and then I wound up eating some more :( By not working out yesterday that means I have no more rest days this month lol Its only the tenth and all my rest days are gone -.- but I’m not going to dwell on my day of lost exercise I’ll just do better today :)
I completely slacked off today cause I had so much stuff to do. Baptism, baptism pictures, birthday brunch, cake, entertaining, another birthday party, and then dinner. I’m hoping my food goes down fast enough to work out within the next hour before I take a nap til tomorrow. I’ll update you in an hour lol i guess ill find time in a bit. but at least the baptism went pretty well.
