It is my baby's birthday!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Real quick, my son is far from a baby! In fact, he is actually 8 years old today. He will always be my baby. I can't believe what a strong man he is turning into and grow prouder of his emotional and physical development each and every day.

Today is a super quick blog, I am already drained from having to fast for 12 hours again to do another test. Which failed, now I have to try again on Friday. I am doing a cardio point test at my gym. Basically it is testing to see when I burn fat and when I burn carbs. I really need to focus on fat burn currently so we are trying to get that measured. Unfortunetly I am too....how to put this...well endowed...for the heart monitor to grab my heart rate.

I was funny watching to trainers try not to say that, then another trainer (who my buddy works with) walks by and is just like "These!" and points to his chest. It was hilarious. The other two guys were too scared to say anything. :) So we are going to try to change things and try again on Friday.

So goals for yesterday...
Did I make healthy food choices? Yes! Sadly I was still under on calories and 2 grams short of protein.
Was I physically active? Ouch yes! Ran 2 minutes on walked 1 minute off and did this for a total of 20 minutes with a 5 minute warm up and cool down. After that I stretched and cycled for about 20-30 minutes.
Did I feel/act motivated? Overly active! Talked to two of our trainers and one of the department class coordinators and they were pretty proud of me. :D
Did I stick to the program? Yes and then some

I hope everyone has a fantastic day! We are going to be spoiling our son and taking him out to dinner (where I will be eating a salad WHOOP WHOOP). The rest of the week is more testing and party planning. My sons party is Saturday and the Superbowl is Sunday!

Much love Sparkers!

    I hate boobs... well no, I love mine, but they just get in the way of everything! ESPECIALLY when you're larger or an "odd" size. Like me- a 32DD? Super hard to find cheap bras that work... so you have to pay a lot for the right size and it just gets frustrating.

    Happy birthday to your son, and good for you for having a good day yesterday!
