Opted Out

Yesterday was a good day. I still have a lot of balls up in the air but I think that they will work themselves out hopefully by months end.

And I also think I mentioned that I thought we might be eating at McDonalds for lunch.

We didnt. (Whew). We ended up eating at a coney island and I had a grilled chicken salad in an edible bowl (I just had a few small pieces of it) with a hard boiled egg, tomatoes, black olives. No cheese or anything. And some balsamic vinegar dressing in which I hardly drizzled anything. It was awesome. I didnt even eat all the chicken. I maybe ate 1/4-1/2 of the breast from it. I ate all the salad though.

I ended up opting for a rest day last night. I was exhausted and sore from the weekend still. My inner legs were starting to ache from the machine work I did the night before and well honestly, I just didnt feel like it and Eric's voice kept running thru my head about a rest day. So I took it.

I ended up eating some clean chips and really super hot salsa, a piece of string cheese and a clementine for dinner while Aaron and I caught up on The Following.

Today I am up to 159.0. Doesnt surprise me because of the sea salt on the chips, sodium from the black olives and not exercising. Frankly I am ok with it and have sort of given up on a "goal weight". I know my body will be going thru a BUNCH of changes once I start working with Eric 3x a week so I know that the 150's is not the end all, be all number. And really? I am just happy to BE in the 150's.

Today I will be fully back on track with my eating. Here is what I have planned:
Breakfast: String cheese, english muffin with PB, hard boiled egg
Lunch: celery with hummus, clementine, some roast beef
Dinner: string cheese and clementine and I may or may not bring a Larabar with me. Havent decided yet.

Tonight is the gym. I plan on running to stretch my legs out on the treadmill for about 45 minutes. I am going to keep trying to bump up my MPH's every time I run so tonight will be 6.2 mph. We will see how long I can do that for. Remember that I have a goal of running at 6.5 mph for at least 10 minutes. I would love to be able to run an entire 5k distance at that speed. Eventually I will get there.

Then it is upper body and core focusing on triceps and chest. Oh yeah! So in the works will be tricep extensions, chest presses, and all sorts of things. Not quire sure what torture I will dig up for my core. I really like the wood choppers so maybe I will do those again...

Next week Aaron leaves for a business trip so I will not be able to go to the gym until MAYBE Thursday night, for sure Friday. So because I wont be making it to the gym, I will be doing P90X at home in its place. Monday will be the legs, Tuesday night will be elliptical, Wednesday will be the arms dvd, Thursday will be the gym OR elliptical and kenpo, then Friday will be back to the gym. It is nice to have that safety net of having some dvd's at home. Or instead I may do Jillian instead of P90X...not sure yet. I think it will be good for the body to mix it up a week as well. I know in P90X they have you take it easier a week for the muscle confusion so this may be just what my body needs.

So thats about all my news for the day. I am going to take a nice relaxing day until the gym tonight. I really need some new gym clothes because my yoga pants are literally falling off when I run SO once I drop Xavier off at school, I will come home, shower, then pack up Landry to run to Kohls. They are having some deals and sales on athletic apparel. Then it will be time for Landry's lunch and nap. WOO HOO!!

Have a great day everyone!
