Rainy day here. I had the most adventurous day! But first:
I was quite motivated this morning, so I went to the gym and did some light weights
Bicep curls- 8lbs- 3 sets of 10
Chest Press- 8lbs- 3 sets of 10
Chest Flys- 8lbs- 2 sets of 10
Triceps- 8lbs- 2 sets of 8
Should Press and lunges- 8lbs-3 sets of 8
Miltary Press and Squat (JILLIAN!!)- 8lbs- 2 sets of 10
V Raise and Squats..aka death...- 5lbs- 2 sets of 12
Then I did some leg presses, inner and outter thigh machine, quad lifts
And then 10 easy min on the reclined bike while I read O magazine...I don't even like it but it sucked me in.
Then, it was RIDICULOUSLY raining so I went back to the gym for a 3mile run on the treadmill. I HATE the treadmill. I DESPISE it. I think it is torturous. terrible. hard. boring.
Distance: 2.56miles (couldn't even do 3...hope pathetic)
Time: 25.02 min
However..I'm proud that I did it. I could have just gone home but instead I went to the gym.
Breakfast was PB&J/Trail Mix oats:
- 1/2c oatmeal, 1c water
- 2tsp natural pb
- 2tsp nat. jelly
- 2tbsp trail mix
- mix mix mix
No time for a mid morning snack..went to this new place called Designer Greens for lunch. They have one in O-town too. It was good...however...I was starving after I ate it. It just wasn't enough calories. I figure the chicken and avocado were really the only substantial items. I also know that I do best with a carb...like whole wheat bread or a wrap in addition to lunch.
So, I created me own salad with:
- egg whites (the girl looked at my like I was crazy when I asked her to ditch the yolk?!?..she couldn't figure out how to pop it out haha)
- Herb chicken (not that great)
- Avocado (this was really good)
- strawberries..2 measly ones!!
- Light Ranch..although all I did was dip my fork a few times.
Please take note of the beastial amount of dressing they give you.
So, since I was crazy hungry...an hour later I had a whole wheat bagel with a slice of gouda (which is naturally low in fat and cals! FYI!!!) and a slice of turkey. I intented to only eat 1/2 but I was soo hungry that I ate the other half with some spray butter.
There's a bagel hiding under there :)
Pre-Gym (again) snack
A monster apple and a few almonds. Too bad the apple gave me the worst indigestion. It was painful. Not cool.
- Baked Chicken
- 3/4c brown rice
- red pepper
- 1tsp olive oil
- 1.5tbsp sweet thai chili sauce
- Stir Frizzle
Dessert. Apparently I had a huge sweet tooth. However! I kept it in check and I am proud.
- 1/2c stonyfield Dark Chocolate Fro-Yo
- sprinkle dark choco chips
- all nat pb (probably 1tbsp...maybe less)
- 1 square dark choc
Can't wait for Veganism next week! Check out Ryan's Blog!
Last night, I spent a good amount of time google-ing Reggie Bush and Kim K. I have this odd obsession with "bad"/mysterious boys...ie. atheltes and such....falling for a girl. I think it's soo cute. Im jel. They are by far my fave couple. Weird?
Additionally...Shana and Travis Barker are off again. Really? Like just stop. No one cares.
So, as I said before, my clothes and body were feeling off lately. I am happy to report that just after 3 days...I feel better! I feel stronger and more fit! yay! I also feel more in control of my eating...not just mindlessly eating but really thinking about what I want and need. Like for today, I packed about 20 almonds and an apple...but I just didn't need all of them so I had a few.
I am going for a nice 8miler on Sunday to get ready for my 15k.
