What I learned in one day

Friday, November 02, 2012

I decided to log some of my food yesterday. Here's what I learned - dang, some foods just aren't that great! My usual breakfast was way too big. I thought I was having a "light" breakfast. Turns out it was 500 calories! True, the nutritional value was pretty freeking amazing, but my idea of what makes a meal light or heavy is all off.

I decided to walk to the grocery store to get lunch. Go figure, it wasn't comfortable to do all that walking. My back muscles cramped up, and my back cracked when I finally sat down. That's not a good feeling all around.

Tonight I'm going to see about cooking dinner instead of going out. I'm also going to make it a point to get in the gym this weekend. If I can do 15-20 minutes of cardio and something to strengthen my lower back muscles, I will call it success. I have no delusions of running for 10 minutes on the treadmill when a 10 minute walk is uncomfortable, but I just need to get back in the habit of being in a gym.

This link is to Leslie Sansone's 2 mile walk on youtube. It is a great workout and you can do it in the comfort of your own living room. Try it, it is fun, easy and a whole body workout.

    It's amazing how quick our bodies revert back to their old selves. Stick with it and you'll be back out there running in no time.

    Baby steps over time and perseverance is what it takes!
I remember my favorite breakfast in college. Over 1200 calories! 0.o How they justified a scoop of eggs as 200 calories I'll never know!
