Great Workout

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

Went to the gym after school today...one day done, 184 to go... :)

I was thinking about taking it easy at the gym because - poor me - I actually had to get up when the alarm went off and be at work all day. But I decided I'd just see what machine was available (I arrived at the gym around 5:45...their busy time)... and let that determine whether I did an easy elliptical workout or a tough treadmill workout. Well, a treadmill was available, thankfully!

I ended up running 5.87 miles in an hour, yay me! That was 2 minutes of walking warmup, then went up to 7 mph and then slowly lowered as my heart rate went up. Toward the end I was all the way down to 5.1-5.4 mph, but that's OK. For the very last minute I increased to 7 mph again, because I've learned that in a race you're supposed to sprint at the very end. Then I walked for 5 minutes so by the end I'd gone over 6 miles and burned over 700 calories. Then I did a great stretch and even think I did a real pushup (though my form may have been questionable). I was sweating a LOT, which kinda felt good, and my armpits are both chafed, which did NOT feel good.

(Yay - as I write, David Ortiz gets a home run for the Sox against the Evil Empire!)

I thought about continuing until I'd done 6.4 miles/10K, but didn't feel like it...maybe sometime. But I am really glad I used the treadmill instead of the elliptical today. It's a better workout for me. I'm going to keep this up, no matter how busy school gets!!!! It's too great not to!

    that sounds like an amazing workout! I wish I could get up the courage to try and tackle the treadmill. I think I would last for about a minute.

Oh, and by the way, GO SOX!!!!! :)

Back to School

Monday, August 27, 2007

Tomorrow is Day 1.

Rules:
*Get lots of sleep!
*Gym bag in car in morning, go directly to the gym after work.
*Plan and prep all food for the following day, bring all or most along to work.
*Start with a cup of coffee, then spread out eating through day along with water, tea, and gum.

Jess said he'd do the Hub on Wheels with me! (www.hubonwheels.org) Big bike ride all over Boston to raise money for Boston public schools. I can't believe he's going for it. Yay!

  


Another Sunday, Another Day for a Weightloss Checkin

Sunday, August 26, 2007

137.8 last Sunday, 136.4 today. (After my last blog I went back to bed and just weighed myself again. It kinda breaks my rule from a few entries ago about one weigh-in per morning though.)

That is 1.4 lb down in one week. Granted I didn't eat 1,500 calories every day this week because I had a life. But it's really good!

Yesterday right before the wedding Jess and I went to TJMaxx so he could buy something to wear to the wedding, heehee. I was already all ready to go in my Ann Taylor Loft size 4 dress. But as I was standing by the dressing room waiting for him (almost typed "weighting" - ha!) I found this $10 juniors size small red and black dress. Tried it on, bought it, wore it out to a bar last night. Felt pretty hot. ;)

Clarification - I Don't Run Marathons ??

Sunday, August 26, 2007

Two people now have left messages on my page congratulating me for the marathons I'm running. I haven't ever even considered running a marathon. 5K I've done; 10K I'm considering. A marathon is 4 times longer than a 10K and I think a 10K is wicked long.

Didn't gain or lose an ounce after yesterday's wedding and night out drinking. 137.4 again. Yay.
