Today for the second time in a row I did a Pop Pilates video as soon as I woke up. This time I did the arms and shoulders one, because I don't know if I could handle the ab one two days in a row. It was harder to start this morning, probably because I had a lazy sleep in morning instead of waking up to an alarm. The workout went pretty good, even though I had to do the pushups on my knees. But eventually I'll be able to do them normally.
For breakfast I had a fried egg and slice of kraft cheese on an english muffin with a banana. Egg and cheese on an english muffin is my favorite breakfast sandwich ever.
Lunch was a piece of smoked salmon. Probably not the greatest decision, but it was tasty and had lots of protein.
Before work I had a clementine and a fiberplus bar. I worked 5-9 and I sometimes go out to eat with that client, so planning foods on those days can be tricky. We didn't get food today though, so that was alright.
After work I went back to the gym after a 6 day hiatus and tried to continue with the c25k plan. It was dumb, and didn't go well. I was on Week 5, Workout 2, which is run 8 minutes, walk minutes, repeat. I managed the first 8 minutes, but when I tried the next running section I only made it four minutes in and had to quit. I felt awful. Couldn't catch my breath, kind of nauseous. I ended up walking the rest of the 5k. At first I was really upset and mad at myself and wanted to just get off the treadmill and go home. Then I remembered that crap happens, and one botched workout isn't going to kill me. I'm just going to try again tomorrow.
So after the gym I came home and had a late, late dinner of turkey pasta bake and newton's blueberry maple cookies. Very tasty, and I finished out the day at 1201.
Three days of good calorie counts.
