Streak Update

Friday, January 11, 2008

I'm still going strong on my streak. I'm on Day 8 of the exercise streak and day 5 of the food streak. Last night I actually had to find things to eat to get up to my calories. I ended up having a glass of ff milk. I figured that was a good healthy choice.

Yesterday I think my body decidded it was exhausted from 7 days straight of working out hard. I went to the gym and was going to do my couch 2 5k program, ended up only doing 15 minutes of it and then went to the weights. I also only did 15 minutes of that and was yawning the whole way through. I felt really weak as well when I was doing the weights. I have been trying to lift heavy - so everything was making my muscles shake.
I started to think that I was probably exhausted so I stopped. I at least did get 30 minutes in. Today I'm going to just take the dogs for a walk. I figure I'm getting my cardio, but it's light and easy and not too taxing on my body and then I'll see how I feel tomorrow and see if I can hit the weights and cardio hard again. It's all about listening to how my body is feeling.

I also did jump on the scale at the gym and it said I was 218 - now I can't wait to get on my scale on Monday and see where I'm at. The gym scale is usually higher than mine, so I'm kind of excited to see. I also did measure my waist, hips and abs this morning and I'm down 1.5 in in the waist and .5 on the hips and abs. That's always a plus. :)

So, the streak is going well. I don't feel too deprived with making healthy choices instead of junk. I'm eating enough that I'm full, today I had a tall skinny carmel latte from starbucks - that was my treat for being so good this week.

Next Thursday will be my "day off" of healthy eating, I'm wondering how that will really work. I will still most likely take my lunch to work unless I have lunch out with someone, and I'm sure dinner will be healthy for the most part, so it's not like I will totally splurge, maybe we will have taco's or tostada's or something like that. Not a huge splurge but it sounds good, or maybe we will go out for chinese or something yummy. As long as I eat small portions I think it will be fine.
