Death by chocolate

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

I accidentally ate 12 chocolate covered macadamia nuts today. They were in the break room and I was reading and not paying attention and well, the rest is history. 690 calories! Needless to say, I am not within my calorie range today. That sucks.
I'm really bummed out tonight. I can't explain why but I'm in a definite funk and I can't seem to shake it. I should've worked out tonight but I didn't. Maybe it would have lifted my mood. At the very least, it would have erased some of the guilt brought on by the over-eating. *sigh* Maybe a good night's sleep will help.

    Just pick yourself back up, and work off those extra calories today!
I cannot believe how many calories are in 12 of those little things!! My goodness, I know to never indulge on those now, lol!!

Have a great day!

    You know I heard a story about how a little girl accidentally stuck candy up her nose. At least you accidentally put it in your mouth and not up your nose.

Another dollar in my piggy bank

Sunday, February 24, 2008

Doesn't sound like much but it means a lot more. For every day that I stay within my calories, I've been putting a dollar in the pig. Since the 4th of February, there have only been 3 days where he hasn't gotten fed. For someone that had been constantly going over, I think I'm doing rather well.

Today was another good day. I did an hour of cardio and an hour of strength training. I ate really well and I drank a LOT of water. In the morning, I'm getting up and going for a run. I'm really looking forward to it. Wednesday's run felt fantastic (even though we did hills) so I'm hoping for a repeat in Sunday's run. Fingers crossed.

My abs are sore. I hope no one does anymore crunch challenges over the weekend. My tummy needs time to repair.

An "in the meantime" challenge and more

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

I woke up in an unexplainable good mood this morning. Maybe it was a good night sleep or maybe it was the knowledge that I was going for a massage tonight but whatever it was, it felt REALLY good. It was a difficult day at work so I didn't leave quite as cheery as I had been but .... I picked Hughy up at daycare, stopped for gas, went for my massage and THEN went to see Mary to have my nails done. Mental note: next time bring dinner. By the time I got home at 9:30, I was STARVING.

We had some good challenges made in the "in the meantime" thread today:
~ 20 mins cardio
~ 100 crunches (any style)
~ stay within your calorie range
~ get your 5-10 servings of fruits/vegs
~ drink at LEAST 8 glasses (4 oz each) of water AND
~ write a blog entry

I did 50 regular crunches, 25 oblique crunches (each side) and 25 reverse crunches. I ate 2045 calories, which is only 5 over. I had 10 servings of fruits and vegetables (4 F, 6 V). I drank FOURTEEN glasses of water. And then, I did 20-ish minutes (might have been a couple more). Oh and I wrote all about everything in here :~)
All in all, I'd say this was a damn awesome day.

Waking up at 6 a.m. on a Sunday morning never really makes me happy but waking up to -26 on a day when I'm supposed to run a half marathon well...... it kind of stunk. On the other hand, knowing that my HM group was meeting me down at Eau Claire for our "graduation" run, THAT was pretty exciting. 21 of the participants ran. That's AWESOME! I have to admit, it's one of those bittersweet moments. I'm going to miss the people that I've been running with for the last four months but I'm really looking forward to meeting the next group, too. Hopefully, the graduates will have come to love running enough that they'll be out for Run Club.

Today I'm at home sick. Not at all race related. Glen's cold has now become my cold. My head hurts, my throat hurts... pretty much everything hurts LOL. I'm drinking Neo Citran and hoping for the best for tomorrow. Until then, it's plenty of water, fruits, veggies, and rest.
Here's to Tuesday!!
