Didn't track everything, but didn't splurge as much as before. I did well yesterday only splurging at dinner (It might not've been that bad but I cooked something kinda freestyle and it had bacon and cheese in it -mac&cheese - and I didn't track it). I even gave away a cookie to my husband! WOW.
I also didn't run at all. :P My weekend was just SO PACKED. I should've realized it ahead of time so as to plan my LR better but... it just didn't happen. So now I had a wimpy week last week (only 16 miles instead of the closer to 30 I was looking for). But I decided instead of cramming in a LR today, I should just try to move ahead with this week's schedule and make it on point. I'm gonna be trying to run 7 tomorrow anyway, which is like a midlength run for me.

Not the full summary -
Yesterday, splurge. I tracked a lot of it but not everything. Mostly the splurging was because there was a bake sale at my hoop-a-thon and also at my concert and I indulged in both locations. I also had ice cream yesterday.
This morning, scale says 193. Yesterday, 193.
So I'm sticking in the same place for now, but honestly I didn't weighin when I started this and I bet it was higher due to previous splurging. So I will stay the course!
Today I have a long gig, but they're giving lunch and I asked for a salad w/ grilled chicken. go me! :)

Tcal - 1540
Carbs 224, Protein 48, Fat 50 (more fat, less carbs + protein)
Sugar - Hot Chocolate mix, sugar cookie+mini cookie
Water - I at least got to 64! I'm still not really tracking this well but I have a couple of water bottles that are at least 22oz and I drank more than 3 full bottles, so I'm doing ok...
2.5 miles w/ Roscoe, a few ST moves, but not my full ST routine as planned. Got to work on making hula hoops and had to get to a concert and I just didn't do it bottom line.
HOW I FELT:
CHANGES FOR TODAY:
I did NOT do abs yesterday, so I'll do that. I already missed my window for early morning LR, just tooooo tired. I needed the sleep. I have the Hoop-A-Thon soon, so I'll be doing that anyway. Then this afternoon if I go, I'll miss my only time w/ my DH because I have a concert again tonight. Tomorrow I have a gig playing for a graduation which takes all day. I may just need to do my LR on Monday or something. :P

Tcal - 1563
Carbs 253, Protein 56, Fat 42 (more carbs, less fat and protein than the day before)
Sugar - Hot Chocolate mix, piece of dark chocolate
Water - well I'm confident I had at least 50oz that I counted, so I'm hoping with the extra (because I did drink other water) I at least got to 64!
Ran 5.17 miles on my own and 1.35 w/ Roscoe, so about 6.5 miles run. That worked out really well - I felt like I was flying on the run by myself because there was no moseying to sniff things, and then I enjoyed the run with Roscoe even more. :) Looking at my splits, definitely faster than I have been running. All are better than or on the fast side of my Easy Pace Range.
I hooped for a couple of songs, too. I didn't mention this for Wednesday's sum up blog, but I had a rehearsal that day which was about 1.5hrs, and last night which was 2hrs. Both ensembles were brass groups which meant I was playing my trombone almost the entire time. I know playing a musical instrument is in the cardio tracker. I'm NOT tracking it, because I don't feel it gets my heart rate up or anything, but I'm hoping I am getting a bonus burn.
HOW I FELT:
Pretty good - SORE. Still sore today. The ST I did Wednesday was apparently very effective. Hungry sometimes. Last night I ALMOST CHOSE to go over range for an ice cream cone, but then I said - Dana, the rule was you could have it IF it is within range, and it's not, so NO ICE CREAM TONIGHT. And I was ok with that! :D I felt very proud of that decision.
192.5 - good good.
CHANGES FOR TODAY:
Do ST again so I don't slack off. I'll be making hoops today and finishing prep for the hoop-a-thon so that will get most attention, but I'll still go on a short run (probably all with Roscoe to get 2 birds with one stone), and do my ST! Including randomabs.com!

So I figured I probably would be doing these every morning, instead of at night before I go to bed?
Yesterday was a great day right up until I spilled burning hot noodle soup on my hands. I was crying, it was horrible. After I calmed down, it only hurt if I stopped putting ice on it... then it felt like fire right away. Um.. concerning. And I already saw a blister forming.
Well fast forward, and it was only hurting if I didn't have it in the air from the fan, then going to bed, it felt mostly ok - this morning? Some parts of it feel like a mild sunburn, and there is one blister that is particularly bad, but mostly it's not bad at all. And my right hand is just fine, it's only my left hand. I just want to be able to play trombone ok - I have a rehearsal tonight, concert Friday and Saturday night and a gig on Sunday.
But I stayed on track!
Also yesterday I got a bike!!!! WOOHOO!!!! It's like this one:
A Schwinn Mirada, likely from the mid 1980's - this picture is from their 1985 catalog and it looks almost exactly like this. By the 90's the Mirada looks a lot different- flat handlebar and other changes...
Also there are some terrifyingly horrible pictures of me from the race I did last weekend - BUT... I let the bad ones overwhelm me and there are actually some ok ones, too. Here are a couple of those:
I'm still going to remember the horrible ones, they are a great motivator for me to stay on TRACK!
Tcal - 1532
Carbs 205, Protein 78, Fat 53 (more protein, less carbs than the day before)
Sugar - Hot Chocolate mix, a soda flavor ice pop
Water ?!?!?oz (I still didn't start tracking this...)
Ran w/ my dog, Roscoe - 2.7+ miles, also did some weights - not at the gym, because I looked at the scheduled workout and realized I could do everything in it at home, and I was running out of time in my day. Did dumbbell Squats, angled pushups (not wall pushups, a more challenging angle, but off of the railing at the top of my stairs - so I could practice the full body position but still complete the reps), bent over dumbbell rows, also rear flys in that position, and the randomabs.com workout of the day.
My chest is sore today, my legs are feeling it a bit, too. I really concentrated on great form and w/ the dumbbells I was just able to make it through the reps. I'm planning to do TWO full body ST workouts a week plus a randomabs.com workout on another day. So 3 ST a week, but only 2 days full body.
HOW I FELT:
Great! Everything was manageable, I got a lot accomplished during the day as well (getting a bike, fixing the audio problem w/ the TV (our infrared sensor is down, so adjusting volume or channels you have to get up, so I routed the audio through the stereo so you only have to adjust when switching between inputs), music rehearsal, workouts)
193 - what I expected.
CHANGES FOR TODAY:
Track my water!!!! Go on a run by myself so I can log more miles! Clean the shower!
