I DID IT! I DID IT!
I actually got up early and made it to the gym this morning. However, I was a little late getting there (6:20 am) than I planned, but still made it to work on time! LOL
I did 27 minutes on the E-Beast with cross ramp on level 1 and then up to level 8 half way thru. I wanted to do 30 minutes, but I was already cutting into my weight lifting time. In the weight room, I focused on my arms today. I did most of the arm machines for 3 sets of 10 reps, with the last rep being around 12-15 just to push it. I think the only one I didn't do is the shoulder press (the one you lift/push up). I only did 2 sets on the bicep machine and 1 set on the "butterfly" chest machine. Overall, considering I didn't get all the machines in, I feel pretty good. My workout totalled about 55 minutes.
Oh yeah, I also did the ab weight machine.
Wanda - I'm going to try to do this again tomorrow, but lift on the leg machines and include the lower back in the mix. Next week, it's your turn to jump in! If I can make this happen, I know you can do it!
Lisa - Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I was happy to see the 154, but I need to make it stick until Monday! hehe As you can see, I'm going to start weight lifting a little here and there. I'm not trying to bulk up and be huge, but I wonder if the muscle will hinder my "weight"? I think if I keep it at a toning level, I'll still be able to hit around 145 (which I would be happy at!) Anyway, hope you have a great week as well. And, congrats on your -1 lb!
I made it to the grocery store last night. Spent and arm and a leg. But, now our fridge is stocked and I have fresh veggies et all! I should've eaten before we left, but I thought it would be a "quick trip". The long story short is that we didn't get home and eat dinner until after 9 pm. I wasn't really hungry that late at night, but needed to feed DS. So, I made what was planned: pasta and turkey meatballs. I ended up eating probably 1.5 - 2 C of pasta, just as much sauce and 1 serving of turkey meatballs. I didn't eat any other veggies, as I was too lazy and they didn't really sound good.
Oh, and since I should hold myself accountable, I had one of those blueberry cake donuts from DH before we headed off to the grocery store... It was waxy and sugary, but for some reason, I've decided I like sugary easily available foods lately. Just the one thing is enough to give me the fix I need. However, I think I'm over it and just need to tell myself "no".
