5/4/14 - I ran yesterday AND today plus I did a kettlebell workout!

Monday, May 05, 2014

Weekends are all about family time and we were so busy having fun yesterday, I barely had the time to log my nutrition and exercise!

I walked/ran along the 4-mile beach BEFORE I went grocery shopping yesterday morning. It felt AWESOME: the wind was whipping in my face so fierce it ripped the moisture from my eyes and I just couldn't concentrate on anything other than the music blarring in my ears. :) I walked and ran a little stint for a little over an hour and burned 501 calories!

Today, I had breakfast with the kids (french toast, scrambled eggs & sausage), forgot to have a snack, had lunch out with Emily (shrimp capellini at Tomatina) and then, had home-made TexMex potato soup for dinner with corn chips.

While my husband put the kids to bed, I did my new Jillian Michael's DVD which is a Kettlebell Shred-It DVD and IT WAS AWESOME! So much more fun that her famous 30-Day Shred. Interesting and much more focused on weight-training than all the boring cardio. :) I loved it! I wore my Polar HR monitor and burned 230 in those 24 minutes. I had so much pent up frustration that I decided to follow that with a walk/run around my neighborhood. I just needed to blast my favorite tunes and tune out everything that was on my mind. I burned another 410 calories, probably because I ran a great deal of it.

My shins hurt so bad today...

My heart and head feel so good!
