Great day!

Sunday, November 06, 2011

I had a crummy weekend as far as eating and exercise goes..so today I woke up and decided to make it right. So this morning, I slept in and then had a nice oatmeal Bfast with blueberries and a glass of milk...then I went to the gym for my makeshift ten mile run since my shin splint is so bad. I ran 3.5 miles on treadmill, then another 6.5 on the elliptical...I was pooped. I had one of those Gu energy things to get thru that workout, an I spent 10 min hanging out in the sauna relaxing after that. Got home, had a protein drink and a turkey sandwich. Now hubby and I are about to go have a Red Lobster dinner and go to a movie. Going to be a great day and I feel good about what choices I have made today.

Goal for this week is to keep my eating in check each day, track my food each day, and get a good workout in every day but Friday. (Rest day) I wanna see a lb loss by the end of this week. I'm getting angry at myself for the lack of weight loss. I know it's my own fault..I just don't get it...how can I be eating 3000 calories a day? That's what it would take for me to keep maintaining this weight and I KNOW I'm not eating that much. Maybe around 2000, but 3000? I burn 600 minimum calories at every workout during the week and I have a normal calorie burn of 2000 calories according to my HRM when I don't exercise. DUMB!

Going to figure it out tho and see what's going on this week.

    Weight loss is always so tricky! How's the water drinking going? Thats something I've been trying to increase in hopes I flush more out of my system. Do what you can on those workouts, I think switching to the elliptical is a great idea! Keep up the hard work!!!

    Your running routine sounds super relaxing (after the fact!). Make sure you stretch those shins splints! You have had great progress so far with our sports bra challenge, maybe you just hit a little plateau. It happens. Just keep doing your thing!

    I had a bad weekend eating. It's back to clean today. As long as I eat 80% clean it's a pretty good day.

    Maybe you're building up a lot of muscle from all the running? Try taking some photos and compare them to before you became a runner, maybe you'll see less fat and more definition!

    I want turkey now..... quality lunch meat is one of the only foods I can't find here, and that's the one meat I'd actually buy, haha. Koreans are crazy about their Spam though. It weirds me out, what's meat in a can made of?! Lol.
