265 minutes of TurboFire this weekend! Trying to keep ahead of the calorie intake.

Monday, May 28, 2012

Whew!! I am so glad this weekend is over! Four days of graduation food!

I am NOT good at controlling my intake of food at parties, so instead of fighting it, I pushed my body to burn extra each day before I started eating.

Friday - Finished Supreme 90 round 2 by doing Cardio Challenge and then a 15 minute TurboFire HIIT workout. Graduation picnic with lots of taffy apple salad (apples good, snickers bad).

Saturday - TurboFire 25 minute HIIT; 45 min Cardio, 20 min Core. Graduation breakfast with Blueberry and chocolate pancakes (not mixed, two different kinds).

That evening my daughter graduated from High School!!! She had issues throughout school, but her final report card was straight A's!!!! She has found her direction and the motivation she needs to get there. (going on to the medical assistant program at our local technical school)

Sunday - Turbofire 25 min HIIT; 55 min Cardio. Two Graduation parties. (One for Cocoa-Jumbo's daughter - strawberry filled cake - YUM!) I would have attended more, but one was for my psuedo Daughter that lived with us last year, so I stayed at her party the whole time. They had taco bar and I made sure that I had plenty of salsa and lettuce with my beef, minimizing the cheese and not having any chips. Plenty of desserts though too.

Today - Turbofire 25 min HIIT; 45 min Cardio; 10 min stretch (figured I needed the stretch after the pounding I have given my body - I hate stretch). Only one party today, but it was for my best friend's son and she is living in Arizona, so haven't seen her in forever and spent the entire afternoon there. Beef and Cheesy potatoes (plus more yummy desserts!).

I ate way too much this weekend, but I am hoping the scale will still be friendly on Wed when I weigh in.

Tomorrow I am force to take a rest day as I have a 7 am meeting at work, but my body definitely needs it anyway!

How do you manage when you know you will be overindulging?

    Good on you.....sounds like a graduation week extravaganza!

    Sometimes all you can do is plan like you have....workout more, be selective at the buffet counter (ie Taco Bar), and sometimes just say, "to hell with it, I can only be SO good!"

    Congrats on your daughter's breakthrough!

    I have the same problem. I call it the "See Food Diet".

    I try to minimize grazing by finding a group of interesting people to talk to. The more I talk, the less I eat.

    I usually balance it out over the next 5 days or so. My overindulgences tend to be when I had my day planned and then my daughter wants to go out to eat, which comes up spontaneously after I've had all but dinner for the day (and my usually meals are small). If I go over 1000, I just up my workouts to get another 50-75 a day and eat one less snack which is usually 150 a day.

    Oh, and emoticon to your daughter and the other grads!

    I too like to maximize the cardio / exercise when I know I will be indulging. I also try to minimize the damage by asking myself whether the treat/meal is "worth the calories". This has me stopping myself when it's not a favorite - I have been able to pass up desserts & junk food by stopping & asking myself this first.

    How do you like the TurboFire? I have some of the Turbo Jam dvds that I like doing - I have seen the Turbo Fire in the stores and wondered if it was worth buying, if it's much different? Just wondering what your opinion was.... Thanks!
