what a difference a day makes.

Monday, January 21, 2013

weighed in this morning at 158.
but, whatever.

i got up and we went to the gym. i did 36 minutes on the treadmill. got incline up to 100% and stayed there almost 6 minutes. not bad.
we cut the workout short cos the fiance got texted and had to go.
he dropped me off at home, and i did c25k week three day one.
then i walked for an hour.

i also did 25 exercises for an ab workout, 10 reps.
25 leg exercises, 10 reps.
and 25 exercises with the 25lb kettlebell for 10 reps, and 10 exercises for 10 reps with the fitstik.
not much, but its something!

today i am thankfully back low carb.
i feel so much better. so much clearer.
although, not 100% yet.
i am ending at 1170 calories, 25 grams carbs.

yesterday i felt like a slug. like i couldnt even move without it being a chore.
like i had a 20lb spare tire strapped to my upper abdomen.
this morning, i felt much the same. but as the day has progressed, that bloated, terrible feeling is gone. and i feel more like myself.

i had stupid zucchini again for dinner. although i think im beginning to like it more than i have been. at least i dont want to throw up now at the thought of it like i did when i first began eating it.

i am putting it on my to do list to look up two things:
running daily
and focusing more on strength training vs. cardio.

    That's the "honest" post from yesterday. It's proof that you need to eat specific foods so it works right. Now it's a matter of being able to do it more consistently without driving yourself crazy.

    On strength training vs cardio: I agree. It's pretty easy for us to overtrain the lower body, especially when we're doing so much walking. My poor adductor... :-( ;-)

    On zucchini: it might get better, just try a little more. I'm trying to work out a happy medium for having occasional animal meat in my diet, not to have it often, but to have some every now & then. I don't miss it. I see the appeal, for the most part, to be vegetarian. Thanks for the insights on that topic over the years. :-D
