Working Out

Last night’s workout was awesome. I started with 30 minutes elliptical, then did 15 minutes stationary bike, followed up by 30 minutes on the cross-trainer. It went well, considering I hadn’t blackened the door of the gym in weeks.

Today, I will be doing the wellness walk at work (if they’re doing it ~ kids are out on school break until labor day), then will do some strength training at home.

6 Inches!

Good morning and Happy Monday! Today’s the day ~ I’m heading back to the gym. Game plan is 30 min elliptical, 30 min crosstrainer, and 15 min bike. We’ll see how I do.

I did go off-plan a few times last week. First was the fair on Wednesday; Second was my best friend’s son’s rehearsal dinner (I’m his honorary auntie); and Third, of course, was best friend’s son’s wedding. Fair food consisted of a corn dog, Indian Taco, a few sips of lemonade, 1/2 of a funnel cake, and a few bites of a teriyaki rice bowl; Rehearsal dinner was pulled pork, coleslaw, beans, frog-eye salad, and cake; Wedding was S&S Meatballs, smoked cocktail weenies, pinwheels, cocktail sandwiches, punch, and chocolate wedding cake ~ then after the wedding a group of us went out for cosmos and white wedding cake.

So yesterday, I went right back on plan and I intend to stay that way, one day at a time.

Took my measurements again last night. The results are as follows:

Chest: 40″
Hips: 41.5″
Belly Button: 41″
Waist: 36.5″
R Arm: 12.5″
R Thigh: 22.5″
R Calf: 14.5″
L Arm: 12.5″
L Thigh: 22.5″
L Calf 15.2″

Which means, I’ve lost a grand total of 6 inches so far!! Go me!

Food Coma

Well, I wasn’t as good at the fair last night as I had planned on being. I wasn’t completely horrible, but I didn’t just have my corndog I allowed for. I had a few sips of my mom’s lemonade, an Indian taco, 1/2 of a funnel cake, a bite of a fried snickers (curiosity got the best of me), and a bite of a fried oreo (verdict is fried snickers are better). Oh wait. And a few bites of Baby J’s terriyaki rice bowl.

Today I’m in a food coma. Oh, and I forgot to take my meds with me to the fair so I didn’t take them until after 11pm last night. So, am feeling very sleepy.

Plan for today:
P1 (WW 24)
B: Broccoli & Cheddar Eggs (4 pts)
S: Red peppers (0 pt)
L: Salad w/ Pico de Galo, 4 oz chicken breast, 1 T caesar dressing, 1 T lf lime vinaigrette (8 pts)
S: English Cucumber (1 pt) (also have 14 cashews on reserve in case I’m really hungry ~ 4 pts)
D: ???
S: 2 SF Lifesaver popsicles ~ (1 pt)
E: 60 min Zumba (-4 pt)
