New Recipe, Interval Training and Steps

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

I tried a new recipe tonight and LOVED it! It was a SP recipe called Super Tofu Stir Fry. We used chicken instead of tofu because I wasn't sure I could go that different yet but after realizing how much I enjoyed it, I'm ready to try the tofu next time.

I did another hour using advanced intervals on the stationary bike. I look forward to it as much as I think that there is no way i can do it again! I think I look forward to getting it done but I feel great afterward. Today I hit 13 miles in my hour.

I also did an hour of steps on the Wii Fit. Someone once mentioned that you can buy something to raise your board a bit higher for steps. I need to look into that.

Tomorrow is ST again. Hopefully I can get my 2 hours of cardio and the full session of ST.



First Full Day of ST!!

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Today was my first full day of ST. I started it a couple of weeks ago but was never able to complete a full session. Today, I did a full session and I feel it!!
I also did intervals on the bike again and was ot sure if I would make it!
So now I'm extremely worn out but I also feel really good about what I got done. Tonight I'll play on the Wii Fit some and do a few easy steps just to try to keep up with my 2 hours of daily cardio.
I'm afraid that ST kicked my butt though. I may not be able to do anything else today. I remember reading somewhere to save your ST for last, after you've finished all of your cardio but I figured I had a better chance of actually getting it done while the kids were napping.

    Great Job! emoticon

Hey, sometimes we have to just do it when the time is available! lol

I love the feeling of "normal soreness!"

Let's me know I had a good work-out!

Keep it up! emoticon

    That is GREAT work! Congrats! ST can also be a big benefit, and also gets your heart rate going - if you are unable to do your cardio, then that is fine. You still got a Workout in! Great work!

Salads and Seaweed

Monday, October 17, 2011

I was so excited to finally get back to my salads today. I pulled everything out of the fridge but could not find my rasberry dressing! I forgot to buy more at the store. My sweet DH picked some up for me this afternoon so I'll be back to salad lunches tomorrow. Yay! emoticon

I also ordered the Nori and bamboo roller so I can try to make my own sushi rolls at home. I don't know how well it will work but I can't wait to try it!

I did 2 hours of cardio. Tomorrow is ST and cardio!

Some Exercise, Some Food, & DS FINALLY went in the Potty!!!

Sunday, October 16, 2011

Our normal schedule was interrupted today and I just could not eat what I had planned for lunch, so I got a little off track but it was not too bad. I had a turkey sandwich and Doritos instead of my normal spinach salad. I spent some more time in our back yard, moving rocks to try to clear out an area for the kids swing set. The kids went down for their nap kind of late but I was able to get in an hour of steps on the Wii while we watched football.

We boiled and seperated 10lbs of chicken today and I made a King Ranch Chicken for dinner that we'll also eat tomorrow. (I pureed some some spinach and added it to the mix. It made the casserole the ugliest color but luckily did not affect the taste and it didn't stop the kids from eating it.) I set aside 3 cups of chicken and some chicken stock for another casserole in the next couple of weeks. With the rest of the meat and chicken stock, I made a HUGE pot of chicken soup. My oldest DD loves soup. We'll end up freezing this one to use later this month so I can make sure we eat all of our fresh frutis and veggies this week.

On a totally different note my youngest FINALLY went poop in the potty!!! I cannot tell you how long we've waited for this moment. He has been peeing in the potty for a year. One whole year!! But he refused to do the other and would bring us a diaper when it was time. Ugh! We tried everything we read and everything that was suggested but we just had to wait until HE was ready.



Grocery Shopping Day

Saturday, October 15, 2011

I didn't get any official exercise in today but I spent 2 hours at the grocery store. I planned our meals for the next 2 weeks, using quite a few SP recipes that I haven't tried yet. I love trying new recipes! I haven't been able to purchase the SP cookbook but I'm hoping to get it next month. This is going to be my exercise rest day and I think I put it to good use by getting all of the healthy grocerys for the next 2 weeks! :)
