NRoLL Workout B, Day 2

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

I got up and got my workout in bright and early this morning!

I also have my food planned out for the day:

I am still a bit sore from Monday's workout but it is great to be back at it after a week of rest. Next rest week, I will stay active, I cant' just take a total week off again. I will keep it light, but still do something be it yoga or light cardio.

I have been in kind of a funky mood lately and am having a hard time locking it in with my food. That is why I planned out my day -- takes the guess work out of the "what am I going to eat today?" syndrome. I am not using the SP nutrition tracker, but rather just relying on my Fitbook. I have about four weeks left in this book and will get another one when I use this one up. I have yet to find another book I like as well as the Fitbook. Most want calorie tracking and I guess I am just not into that. Tracking calories is just making me crazy. I hate it.

Home on a snow day with the kids. A foot of snow -- because that is how we roll in Springtime! emoticon Secretly, I love it. Great moisture and it is so pretty!

Looking forward to a great day! Happy Wednesday!!

    I like your fitbook... I use a little notebook just to track how much weight I am doing with certain exercises. No snow in SC lol

    Spring has arrived where I am, and it's hard for me to sit still. I should take a rest, but it's so nice and I want to be outside! So I've decided my 'rest day' will be light activity and not sedentary. As long as I'm not feeling wiped out, I think it should be fine.

I track my food, but I don't pay attention to the calories. Once again, my weight loss and body changes have nothing to do with how many calories I eat or how many I burn. Our bodies are way too complicated and we still have more to learn.

    I looked at the fitbook and at the time I didn't like it too much. I may have another look at it though down the road. I have a hard time with my nutrition too, and pre-planning would go a long way to solving that problem but I struggle with that too. Breakfast, lunch and snack are easy - but I really don't know in the morning what I will want (or have time) to cook for supper.

    I was jotting down what I was eating in a notebook when I first went bastardized paleo, and it was helpful. I didn't plan ahead, but I could look back over the day and see what I was eating, and why. It was helpful... now I don't track what I eat, but I stick fairly well to my bastardized paleo eating plan, and it works so far. I should probably be a bit more vigilant again.

Great job on the work out!

I don't like tracking calories either, or weighing. That's one of the reasons I switched to a paleo eating plan and of course it makes me feel so much more energetic no more feeling that I need a afternoon nap. I have never tried using a fitbook, looks like a great idea, I think I will try one and see how it goes.
