Sticking to the plan

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

So far this week I have been sticking to the plan.


Boxing last night was great. I was a little late but just jumped right in. I went really hard and got a few comments about how powerful my punches were and how experienced I seemed. 6 months ago I had never been in a boxing class in my life, so its nice to get compliments!

Spinning tonight. I wasn't really feelin' it but I still put in a lot of effort. I didn't have the resistance as high as usual and I kinda plodded along but I was tired and smelly by the end of it so I still call it a win. Thats the nice thing about spinning, it is entirely your workout! If you need to turn down the resistance then you can, and no one has to know! I like that.

Tomorrow is boxing, then spinning again on Thursday!

I am thinking about starting an exercise streak. Even a 10 minute walk would count! I have noticed that if I take a day off it is soooo hard to get back into it again. Maybe have 5 'workout' days and 2 light days would work? I know rest is important, but I would make it active rest instead of just sitting my ass on the couch all day. Thoughts?

ETA: Just as a side note: I have been eating like I have worms today. Seriously. I snacked through the morning block (Crackers, my antibiotics make me sick to my stomach!), had morning tea, had lunch, afternoon tea, snack before workout, dinner, dessert. Just grazing all day long! I think I am close enough to my calories so I'm not worried, but man I ate a lot of food today!!

    Your muscles do need to rest and repair, I'm with Dara on the swimming. You can aqua jog rooly slowly, think of the stretching and relaxing benefits not the resistance work in the water. And a day off with maybe just a dawdly walk?

    I'm a grazer most days, too. It's not a bad thing if you make sure that you have good things to graze on-- it's weird how much fresh veg you can eat before reaching even 100 calories! It does feel like a ton of food when you're eating the right things!

    Sometimes I have days like that too. If it's not that time of the month then it's just your metabolism revving up because you have been working out so much! I think the 2 light days is a great idea, just go for a nice walk or maybe a swim, something really easy, possibly even yoga too if it's your thing.

Hopefully I can stick to this! I have already been shopping for my lunches and snacks for the week.

The sweat pooled in my ears

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I worked very hard at boxing today. Like, shockingly hard. I sweat so much it was running down my face and pooling in my ears while I was on the floor doing sit ups. My partner is in the Army, and boy can you tell. She kicked my butt!! I feel so tired, but very good and happy to be back into it. I need to remember how much I actually like exercise when I can't be bothered doing it.

Yeah, I said it. I like exercise. I KNOW.

In other news, my associate teacher is being less help than I would like. It is SO hard to plan when he doesn't have a long term plan and hasn't shared with me the children's test results so I have no idea where they are at or what they can do!!! I have planned the best I can for tomorrow, and am hoping the children haven't done letter writing in a while. It is all well and good to tell me that I can do what I like but if the kids have already done letter writing this year then my plan is pretty much redundant because they don't need to do it twice in one year. Good thing I am awesome and can pull lessons out of no where!!

Spinning tonight and then Friday night off working out.


I can't be bothered thinking of a good title...

I didn't go to the gym last night. I was wiped. I slept for a good 9 hours last night if that gives any indication of my sleepyness.

BUT I did go tonight! Spinning for a hour. While I was there I signed up and paid for Thursday nights class. I am motivated when there is $2 on the line! With those 2, and boxing tomorrow night and something on the weekend I think I am looking pretty good for the week.

Eating was good today. I did have some chocolate, but I tracked it and came in under 'budget' so thats OK. New lunch idea of corn thins with hummus. Yummy and filling :) We made fruit kebabs in class today so I got my fruit in :)

More good eating tomorrow, and boxing class. I am on a roll!

    Sometimes you need sleep more than you need to workout. Recovery is important too!

The week ahead

Sunday, September 18, 2011

This week is my first week of my LAST placement. That is both exciting and terrifying. The good thing about placement (for my eating and exercise) is the routine. I have breakfast before I leave, have a morning tea break, a lunch break and then something to eat once school finishes. I bring healthy options and I have to eat them because I can't leave the school grounds. I also go to the gym before I go home. The gym is between school and home. I have to drive past it. That makes it easier to just go.

So, I plan on having a good few weeks of working out and eating. I want to look good for Summer, my birthday and my graduation.

Here is the workout plan:

M - Boxing (after the shrink)
T - Spinning
W - Boxing
T - Spinning
S - TBC, maybe a walk/run

I wish the gym had more variety. A pump class, perhaps. Maybe I will put it in the suggestion box! I am also gonna ask for a tour of the weights and maybe get a couple of routines I can do after classes (just 15 minutes or so).

Wish me luck!
