A Day Late...

A day late but not a dollar short. I saw these on Facebook yesterday and had to share them.

Ok as for yesterday.

I went to the gym and jumped on the treadmill and set that bad boy to 6.7mph. I ran that for 4 songs and then checked my distance and bumped up my speed to 7.0. Then I bumped it up to 8.1 for about a minute and then back down to 6.5 mph. I ended up running 2 miles in 17:36. So I did way better then Tuesday when I did 2 miles in 18:11.

Then I walked a mile at 4.5 mph and 4.5 incline.

After that was time with Eric. He was still with a client so I started with some light shoulder work. Once he was done, we went over and I did upright rows. Then we did a torture thing with two Bosu balls. You put them ball to ball.and hang onto the top flat surface, do a push up and as you push up you bring the ball up off the bottom one, set it back down and then go back down and do another push up. OMG! Stability, chest, everything. We repeated that circuit for a total of 3 times.

Then we did tricep dips using two benches and the spiderman crawl across the floor. Repeat that circuit for a total of 3 times.

Then we did chest presses. And then plank on the stability ball. And as my arms were held on the ball in a forearm plank Eric kicked at my ball. LOL. That is very hard. At first I started laughing when he was doing it and almost fell off the ball. Then I got used to it and really had to concentrate on it.

My arms got a rockin workout!! They are sore, my shoulders are sore, my chest is sore. Mission accomplished!

Calories burned: 629 calories in 1:04

Then in the evening I went back to the gym and walked. I listened to my body after my run this morning and my legs just wouldnt do it. So I did 3 miles at a 4.5mph pace with a 4.5 incline. It still got my heart rate up. After that was RPM. Eric comes back for classes next Tuesday so Nina was subbing again. With Nina, I picked the pace back up again and got a GREAT leg workout. Take it nice and easy is something I did NOT do in class.

My food for the day was spot on. I ended up having the apple and peanut butter after lunch and then before I went to the gym I had a hard boiled egg. Once I got home from the gym I had roast beef, a cheese stick, a clementine (I picked them up on the way home from the gym), some pretzels, hummus, and a scallion. I was starving.

Aaron was asleep on the couch when I got home from the gym and went right to bed when I stepped in the door and he woke up. Poor guy has a scratchy throat and a cough. Sounds like he swallowed knives. And he is tired from all the traveling. Hopefully he gets better quickly!

Onto today.

This morning I weighed in at 155.5!! I just looked at the number in shock. I wasnt expecting it! Oh holy crap! Awesome and only 1.5 lbs from goal again.

I found out last night that Xavier doesnt have school today and Monday. Presidents Day. UGH. So I will be doing an On Demand workout in the morning. Not sure what yet. Maybe a personal training one. Or a long kickboxing one.

Then tonight is running and ZUMBA!!

Food: Today is Friday which means NO MEAT!!
Breakfast: coffee, hard boiled egg, english muffin with PB
Lunch: tuna, celery, scallions, hummus
Snack: apple and PB
Dinner: cheese stick and clementine

Aaron got me flowers and James Bond Skyfall yesterday for Valentines. I told him not to get me anything but he knows that I lust after Daniel Craig and frankly Skyfall was the best James Bond movie yet. So tonight as we watch it, I might have some popcorn (popped with coconut oil) but I usually bloat afterwards so I will have to think about it being so close to goal now. Also I did buy a bottle of wine so I might have a glass of that. It was a rough year for us but you take the vows "for richer, for poorer, sickness and health, good times and bad" for a reason right? I thought it was really nice that he made note of that in the card.

Saturday will be an early morning. Landry and I are headed north at 8am. I am finally getting my hair cut and colored! Can I get a holla!! I will take pictures. I have to watch my niece in the morning while my sister has their taxes done and then she is watching Landry while I get my hair done. That night I will be running on the treadmill after Landry goes to bed. I will also be on my own for food because I am staying at my parents house and they have a convention to go to. That is actually a good thing for me. Keeps me from eating badly. And I am thinking about bringing my bikini with me to hang up in their kitchen. I have a bad habit of binging at their house.

I also need to pick paint colors for my parents house. The house hasnt been painted since they built it about 15 years ago. Its time. And it is time to add some color. It isnt white but it is a cream with a pinch of pink. We need COLOR!! I cant wait!!

Ok that is about it for me. I take it from the crickets chirping about the Beach Body thing that no one is interested on here. No problem. I would hate to not ask, ya know!

Have a great weekend! I will talk to you all on Monday about my weekend.

Tip of the Day:


  1. Congratulations on being SO close to goal. That is such exciting news. You are amazing with your workouts. I need to learn from you when it comes to strength training. Amazing!
