I woke up this morning and wiggled out of bed to go get my breakfast and coffee before Roo took notice that I was missing. Luckily, she's a heavy sleeper because I don't wiggle so quietly anymore. Got it all done and settled before she popped her eyes open tho'. Score one for Mommy! I didn't even know she was awake until I turned and saw this:
Yesterday, I set myself some goals for February. So far, I'm on track.. sort of.
*More days within calorie range - DONE
*More gym time - IT WAS A RUN DAY
*More days with at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies. - FELL SHORT WITH 3
*More days with at least 8 glasses of water - DONE
Today was marginally better.
*More days within calorie range. - OVER BY 510 (this has been edited)
*More gym time. - BODYPUMP CLASS (1 HOUR)
*More days with at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies. - DONE
*More days with at least 8 glasses of water. - DONE
I feel pretty good about things so far.
Tomorrow, I'm getting up and going to a class I haven't tried yet at my club: NewBody. ( I hope I don't fall on my head) Then I have to drop Hughy off at doggy daycare, go for a visit at my old work, hit Walmart for a few things and pick up my mother so that she can visit with the kids before we go to the farm for Grandpa's birthday (#85). We're coming back Saturday evening but boy-oh it seems like I have to pack a lot of stuff. I blame Roo
Hopefully, I can stay connected while I'm gone. I want to get a "perfect attendance" trophy for February. I blew my chances of getting one in January at the last minute.. GRR.
*EDITED* after I posted Logan called for me to pick him up at the basketball game he'd gone to. Everyone decided they wanted Blizzards. Since I squandered all my willpower at Costco this morning... I had a mini Oreo Cheesequake. SO not worth the 380 calories.
Running - 13 activities - 65.72 kms (7:54:51)
Walking - 3 activities - 10.44 kms (2:11:28)
Gym time - 7 classes - 6:15:00 BodyPump x 4, Baby Bootcamp x 1, Awesome Abs x 2
Total workout time: 16:36:19
I tracked my food 26/31 days and earned two gold stars for staying within my range.
I lost 2.5 pounds.
Things to improve for February -
*More days within calorie range.
*More gym time.
*More days with at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies. I'm at 68% since 11/01 (when I reset my spark to stage 2)
*More days with at least 8 glasses of water. I'm at 67% (since 11/01)
I can do this!!
Here's one of my favourite pictures of Roo from January:
I did good all day but I just caved and ate a serving of chocolate covered pretzels. They were so delicious.
I went for my blood tests this morning. Thirteen tests = four vials of blood and a container of something that would be called TMI. Hopefully I will have the results next week. I have to tell you, though, an enforced "no eating breakfast" SUCKS! I was pretty growly by the time I was actually allowed to eat.
The nutritional balance looked like this today:
And my goals:
No baked goods
No foods that I cannot track
My only exercise was a few ST moves. And running up and down the stairs. Tomorrow, I hope to take Roo and the dog for a walk. We all need the fresh air.
OH! my baby's 3 months old today :)
LOL - Are you kidding me?! Ok, it's not horrible, it's actually funny.
Today looked like this:
I met all my nutrient goals except for going 4 calories over my range and I was a little low on calcium.
I'm officially fasting for my blood tests in the morning. This sucks. I love having my breakfast about an hour after I'm up and I'm already missing it. I'll have to make one to take with because the plan is to head to the gym after my appointment. I hope. I may just end up coming home and doing the mountain of laundry that's accumulated. And then go to the gym in the evening.
Paul's in California until Friday. Roo and I are on our own. I kinda wish she was older so that we could go do mani/pedis. GOTTA get her passport.
