Rest Day

Last night was a great workout.

I ran 4 miles (tempo up and down and walking at the end), then did 100 crunches then zumba. By the end of the class I was really wiped and Tee asked me if I was feeling alright. I was feeling fine just exhausted but when I looked in the mirror I looked really pale and not flushed like I would normally look after zumba. So for the last two songs I really dialed it back not wanting to pass out. During our shuffle that we always do before cool down, I stepped out of the room to use the restroom. Frankly I get really tired of doing the shuffles every class. I would much rather do a normal zumba song. I went in and peed then came back in at the end of the shuffle for the cool down. I ended up burning 1176 calories.

When I got home I went upstairs and showered. Aaron was in the basement working out. When he came out I was working on my nails and he went to Meijer to get a gift for his boss for tonight. Then he asked if I wanted to watch the new Batman movie on Demand. Sure! So I ended up having a piece of string cheese, some pretzels, clean chips with sunflower oil, some popcorn popped in coconut oil (just the last bit of what Aaron had popped the night before, maybe an 1/8 of a cup) and some semi sweet chocolate chips for a sort of trail mix.

I ended up falling asleep during Batman. The third movie just could not hold my interest. That and I had just worked my butt off. I ended up waking up to see the final bit of the movie with the big fight scene. That part was good. All in all, I rate it one thumb up and one thumb down. Aaron gives it a thumbs up but said it is way too long. I will probably end up buying it so we have all three but the Dark Knight is by far my favorite with the Joker.

This morning I woke up status quo at 170.0. This makes me happy after eating popcorn last night. Usually popcorn makes me bloat.

I am very, very, very sore today. So I am going to take a rest day. I will probably do some core ab work but my poor muscles need a break.

Tomorrow I am meeting Maggie, who I got my zumba instructor with, so we can practice our zumba routines. That will be a couple hours of hard work.

Today I am going to need to apply my Discipline with my food. Especially because I am not working out today.

I think I already went over my plan for my food. Now it is just a matter of sticking with it.


I think I can, I think I can....
