Eating out and the real food pyramid.

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Today I wrestled with going to the gym in the morning and then going back again in the afternoon for my Zumba class. I wanted to do some strength training this morning but decided to get the groceries I needed instead. I figured I could do my strength training before or after Zumba.

My busy day went well. I had lunch out with a friend I haven't seen in years. We ate at Daphne's. I'd never been there before, they have excellent salads. emoticon

Later in the day, I finish up my Zumba class and I see hubby called. I call him back and he says we have company coming over and then we are going out to dinner with his crew from work. emoticon emoticon

SERIOUSLY! Doesn't he know I have plans! emoticon


So much for getting in my strength training after Zumba. emoticon

That also means hubby isn't going to the gym tonight. emoticon

I'm so glad I haven't been waiting for him to go to they gym! emoticon

On a side note....



I agree with this food pyramid! Please check out the article that goes with it. I haven't read it all but in my YEARS of experience with trying to lose weight, the first thing that went out the door was the bread products. I have always taken issue with the traditional food pyramid. We are teaching our kids the wrong way to eat from the very beginning! But I digress....

Dinner was at the Golden corral. I think I've got that place down to a science now. BIG fresh salad and a small piece of steak and 4-5 chocolate covered strawberries with water. Then I watch everyone else go back for 3rds and 4ths before they hit the desserts. They all complain about eating too much and roll on out when they are done emoticon

emoticonI am satisfied when I'm done. I'm not over full and I feel good about my meal! emoticon

During today's zumba class I was feeling run down, kind of tired. Not sure why. I got nauseous for a second. Maybe I was pushing too hard? I don't think I was. I took a sip of water and was fine. Maybe I was just thirsty? Maybe I've been pushing too hard? I don't know.

I'm not as sore as I wanted to be today. Am I working out hard enough? I don't want to over do it. I do think I should feel more than I do. But then maybe the cardio after strength training is really helping out there. I had a trainer once tell me that cardio before and after can help lessen pain...I've been practicing that so maybe that's why.

    I've also heard that cardio after ST will help with the soreness by flushing out the lactifc acid.
