There’s only 8 weeks until the triathlon I signed up for and 11 weeks until the Boot Camp Challenge that I have to enter due to being on the committee.
Soooo, I decided I better start acting like I have a couple physical challenges coming up!
Sunday was good with both food and exercise. I ran/jogged/walked 2 miles. This needs to be a run for 3 miles by the time I get to the triathlon….
Monday I did pushups – knee style: 20, 15, 15, 12, 11. In between the pushup sets, I did superman during three of the rest periods for 30 seconds each and then added elbow plank two times for 30 seconds. The plank was really hard. I need to be able to do it since I will be in a similar position when I do the “boy” style pushups.
Before jumping into the shower after doing my pushups, I was feeling light, so I took the scale out of its hiding place and stepped on it. Only .4 pounds lighter than Friday. I was actually bummed (after being in a good mood about my mini workout just minutes earlier) so this was a big mistake. I actually felt fatter after seeing that my weight had not changed much. Now, the logical side of my brain knows that weight is very relative at times and affected by a whole host of factors. But, my emotional side won out and I could not shake the “fatter” feeling.
The good news is that I did not let it sabotage the entire day and later, when my arms were getting a little sore, I still felt good about doing the pushups-superman-plank routine in the morning.
As for food, Sunday I ate the following:
Strawberry yogurt protein drink:
1/2 Grapefruit sprinkled with Xylitol:
Plate of Tuna salad and broccoli salad – forgot to take picture.
Walnuts with afternoon coffee:
Snack waiting for dinner, and before cooking more stuff to have during the week – ditto from the Saturday night – olive feta mix.
Chicken Curry made up by Hubby B – it was really good (though looks similar to dog barf here). I’ll have to figure it out and post it because it was really good!
Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt protein drink.
Mid-morning snack was a scoop of tuna salad and a scoop of broccoli crunch salad left over from Saturday:
Lunch was taco meat on shredded romaine lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, with salsa and sour cream- forgot to take picture.
Snack of cashews with my coffee:
Snack 2 was an Atkins Bar – a really good coconut granola type with a chocolate bottom:
Dinner was left-over chicken marsala from Saturday night:
Snack while on the computer – celery stick with cream cheese and 1/2 grapefruit. I had the munchies.
Oh yeah – I almost forgot – I had a Modelo Especial Monday night and probably Sunday as well – I just can’t remember…..
