Survived the weekend!

Monday, January 31, 2011

I didn't track over the weekend but I did keep in mind healthy eating. Jake and I shared a brownie at the museum instead of having a brownie each. I did cave and have a long john donut on sunday. But otherwise, I was fairly good.

Super Bowl is next Sunday. Ha! So dodged that bullet for now. Did lots of walking. Worked on organizing the house.

Weighed in this morning and I'm down almost 2 pounds. Yea!

    Sharing a treat is the way to go! Even at a restaurant.

It's Friday!

Friday, January 28, 2011

Yesterday I kept within my range calcium, protein and iron were good now I have to get fiber up there and I'll be set. Forgot that popcorn is fiber. Mmmm.

Today is Step and Pump class. Cardio and weights. I'm determined now.

I'm a little anxious about the weekend though. That's usually when I cave. My sister is having a Superbowl party on Sunday which means non healthy foods. Chips are my downfall. Maybe I'll take my knitting with me to keep my hands busy so I can't stuff myself. haha

I take Jake to his Learn to Skate hockey class tomorrow morning than we hop on light rail to Metro State College to hang posters for a concert coming up. Jake loves lightrail. Anything to do with trains really. Plus light rail goes through the train yard so bonus there.

The concert I'm advertising is for The Decemberists. I've never seen them or heard of them before the record company called me to work the show. But, I'm game to hear new music. Especially for free. ;P It is folk rock which I do like so it should be fun. They give me 2 free tickets so I can take a friend. Nice bonus.

Day 4

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Blew my calorie range yesterday. That chocolate chip cookie I added late last night wasn't worth it. Yuck. Oh well.

Tracking well today. Did my power yoga class. The teacher was in pretzel mode today. Both my coworker and I groaned when she had us go into frog. That definitely stretches your groin area but man. It hurts. Also did some splits poses where you balance your front leg straight out in front of you on your arms while in a lunge position. Ouch. Gave it a try anyway. I'm getting better at plow pose. Can actually touch my toes to the floor. Now I have to conquer dead man's pose which is bringing my knees next to my ears on the floor and touching my shins to the floor behind my head. Some day...

Day 3

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Stayed within my calorie range again. Need to work on getting calcium, protein, iron, and fiber up. Started taking a One a Day vitamin so that should help with the iron and calcium.

Today is my tough workout routine. I go to a class called Body Blitz which is weight lifting, abs, and some cardio. It kicks my butt every time I do it. As a coworker always says after that class, "Advil is your friend." haha But it is a good workout. The teacher is very concious of form too so if you're not doing it right, she let's you know.

Edit: Didn't make the class. Work got in the way. I'm going for a walk then going straight to the blood letting.

I also am scheduled to give blood today so need to drink plenty of water.

Busy day!

Back from blood donation. Unable to give blood due to low iron...hmmmm.

Day 2

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I got home last night and as soon as I opened the door, Jake yelled "Chick Fil A!!!" Yep. That's where we had dinner. The school was having a fundraiser there and during the school day the Chick Fil A cow came to visit his classroom. Great. I think I made fairly good choices though so although sodium was high I stayed within my calorie range for the day. Yay!

I'm about to head out to the gym. I keep procrastinating on the gym as I'm bored with my workout routine. Ah well. It must be done.
