A fun night

I had a great night last night but felt like a complete wuss at the gym.

I got a mile run in at 5.0 mph before taking me back down to a 4.3 mph walk. I just couldnt do it. With doing the mostly veggie/fruit diet, I just didnt have the stamina.

But I got 2.25 miles in before zumba.

Zumba was great as usual and I am starting to really look forward to my certification next weekend.

In total, I burned 1010 calories at the gym.

Then we went to Aubrees for dinner. I did really good and had a greek salad with the feta and dressing on the side. It came with two breadsticks that I ate, and I had 3 feta bread sticks. I also had 2 Octoberfest beers. I know, I know. I said I would have wine but beer just sounded SO good.

Fast forward to today and there was no weight gain. Still at 176.0.

Ok so today I am having a smoothie. Lunch will be fruits and veggies with my apple/peanut butter combo.

Tonight I am going to my aunts house and will be bringing a salad for dinner. I think the plan is for them to pick up some chinese too. I am REALLY picky with my chinese so I dont know that that will be too much of a challenge for me to avoid. Bread is THE killer for me.

We shall see how it goes. Really I am happy with how well I have done so far even though I went off a bit yesterday. I plan on continuing next week but will stop the diet Friday to bulk up on carbs that day- much the way a runner bulks up on carbs before a race. I want to make sure I have enough energy for Zumba ALL DAY on Saturday.

Have a great day everyone!

Tip of the Day: 


  1. Carbs are my downfall, as well. I can eat bagels everyday, along with pizza and chocolate!

  2. Hi again!

    Thanks so much for all your comments this week lovely! I've been so bad with keeping in touch and supporting everyone. :(

    Hope you got on ok tonight....chinese is my downfall. xx
