So I went to sleep after doing 30mins of pilates last night & watching General Hospital & Burn Notice. I was in a good sleep, when the power went out. We had to call ComEd & they told us that there was an outage but power would be restored about 2am. This was 12:10am & I was so on edge...... Finally power was restored & hubby turned on the tv, are you kidding me!! I couldn't go back to sleep. I woke up feeling fuzzy & incomplete but I did do a little quick study in Isaiah. Then watched Joyce Meyer. Then I just laid in bed for a minute, then I went got some water & then did Cathe's Boot Camp DVD. Talking about feeling the burn & sweating. I was still sweating after a shower & getting dressed. I felt good but then as the day progress, the tired feeling crept back on me. . .So I feel scattered & all over the place.
So I tonight I am going to do a few runs, my QFC (frog squats) & 30minutes of pilates. Then its time to rest & get dinner for the boys.
Tomorrow will get up early to throw some things out the basement & clean a little. I HATE & dread cleaning! I wish I could hire someone at least once or twice a month to do it for me. Me & my son could do minor cleaning in between. I can dream, right? lol
So I rose early this morning to watch Joyce Meyer & she rocked! I was encouraged & still am, thank you Lord! I got up & turned on my VCR/DVD & pushed PLAY! Cathe's Kick Punch & Crunch is in there & got 30mins & let me tell you I was sweating my behind off! Take a quick look: www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbtpbWN4irE
I turned off the air & just had a fan blowing to get a sweat filled workout & I did indeed! After doing Cathe, I turned it off & turned on Namaste Yoga which they were doing the extended leg sequence. Now couldn't find that one on youtube but I found another one, take a quick preview: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHDqURcJc4g
I did have my Alphabits with 1%milk, dannon light & fit strawberry banana yogurt (picked it up by mistake but not bad) for breakfast.
I had fruit salad for a mid morning snack & a cup of grapes.
For lunch I had half a Chicago Italian Beef dipped with hot peppers. YUMMY!
For dinner I will have the sandwich I brought with broccoli.
No biggie but trying to have my cake & eat it too. The turkey sandwich is not quite like this one but its healthy. lol
Tonight its Cathe's Imax 2 on FitTv & I am walking trying to stretch out the morning workout so my body will be available for the evening workout: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruonYDXOb8M
I pray you give your body a few minutes to a healthier heart & lifestyle!
First of all, let me say Happy Monday! Since it is almost over for us. lol
Next, still waters run deep. . . .
I love water & drinking it replenishes me & makes feel healthier. Well this weekend because my hubby bought so many cartons of lemonade because they were on sale. I had to take my brita pitcher out & I set it on top of the frig.
My husband loves to go in & out of the frig getting juice or just checking to see if anything changed since the last time he opened it. LOL I tell him time & time again don't do it while he is on the phone or preoccupied cause he doesn't pay attention. Well guess what? He opened the frig too quick & BAM! He broke my brita pitcher!
I was so sad that the anger started to swell inside of me & I felt so sentimental about that pitcher. My husband was sorry & after I got my words out, it was over. So back to the bottle.
Thank you guys for listening! I can be so dramatic at times, I know but I had to get it out. Anyhoo, its rather warm & humid today so I am drinking my bottled water & eating healthy. Getting my walking done now. Next its side lunges, then abs & push pull with weights. I need to get some kickboxing done but it depends on how my energy levels maintain during my workout.
God bless & what do you do for workouts when its just too hot!
So I don't believe anyone would get their 3-5 fruits & veggies if they looked like this:
How can we get more fruits & veggies? Well we can start with fruit with our breakfast, snack. We could have veggies as snacks and with our dinner. We don't have to have just 1 during the meal, we could double up & fill up faster. How bout that? Sounds like we're being creative with our fruits & veggies..
Today, its yoga with weights 60minutes, Tae Bo 30minutes, QFC & 30minutes of walking DVD. What you are you guys doing to get more fruits & veggies?
I had a fairly decent day today. I didn't get my morning workout in but I did take walk breaks. I had Alphabits for breakfast & light & fit dannon yogurt. Drank 6 cups of water & had soup & salad for lunch. Dig that!
It was quite this fancy. Just plain salad & Campbell's Healthy Choice Vegetable Soup but still, its a start. I actually felt quite full afterwards & now its 5pm & mommy is ready for some chicken & broccoli. You know it can only hold for so long. I found out that I really don't appreciate tomato based soups. YUK! Now I like tomatoes but having it for soup oh no!!
Random babble: I tried to hook my co-worker up with Spark but she just doesn't feel she can handle all the tools. I think I'm a pretty good teacher? She just wants to log calories. She doesn't need to watch her weight but I think she obsessed. lol
Tonight my workout will be with Gilad Total Body Sculpt & Cathe's Step Blast. I'm up for it, I think? I will let you guys know later. lol
What did you have for lunch today?
God bless, stay cool, hydrated, eat & think healthy!
