Today I wrestled with going to the gym in the morning and then going back again in the afternoon for my Zumba class. I wanted to do some strength training this morning but decided to get the groceries I needed instead. I figured I could do my strength training before or after Zumba.
My busy day went well. I had lunch out with a friend I haven't seen in years. We ate at Daphne's. I'd never been there before, they have excellent salads.
Later in the day, I finish up my Zumba class and I see hubby called. I call him back and he says we have company coming over and then we are going out to dinner with his crew from work.
SERIOUSLY! Doesn't he know I have plans!
So much for getting in my strength training after Zumba.
That also means hubby isn't going to the gym tonight.
I'm so glad I haven't been waiting for him to go to they gym!
On a side note....
I agree with this food pyramid! Please check out the article that goes with it. I haven't read it all but in my YEARS of experience with trying to lose weight, the first thing that went out the door was the bread products. I have always taken issue with the traditional food pyramid. We are teaching our kids the wrong way to eat from the very beginning! But I digress....
Dinner was at the Golden corral. I think I've got that place down to a science now. BIG fresh salad and a small piece of steak and 4-5 chocolate covered strawberries with water. Then I watch everyone else go back for 3rds and 4ths before they hit the desserts. They all complain about eating too much and roll on out when they are done
I am satisfied when I'm done. I'm not over full and I feel good about my meal!
During today's zumba class I was feeling run down, kind of tired. Not sure why. I got nauseous for a second. Maybe I was pushing too hard? I don't think I was. I took a sip of water and was fine. Maybe I was just thirsty? Maybe I've been pushing too hard? I don't know.
I'm not as sore as I wanted to be today. Am I working out hard enough? I don't want to over do it. I do think I should feel more than I do. But then maybe the cardio after strength training is really helping out there. I had a trainer once tell me that cardio before and after can help lessen pain...I've been practicing that so maybe that's why.
