Good morning! Thursday is my morning to sleep in. Woohoo to sleeping until 5:30am! :) I do plan on walking this afternoon and after supper though, nothing crazy!
So, yesterday I weighed in. It was bad, like really bad, like I’ve gained 13# in a year bad. Anyway, I came up with a new idea. I think I burnt out on counting points with WW. So I decided to count calories for a bit. I went online and found out about how much I should eat to lose 1# a week. The average was around 1700 calories. Yesterday I clocked in at 1790 which is great compared to how I have been eating. I have most of my food mapped out for today too and it looks like I should stay on track fairly easily.
Here’s a list of all the yummy food I enjoyed yesterday for those calories.
- Jello with fruit and applesauce (40)
- oatmeal with a bunch of things mixed in (325)
- cappuccino (50) 1 c. grapes (115) jello (20)
- sunflower seeds (twice – 80 cal. each time)
- veggies (40) 10 calorie soda
- salad (40) dressing (50) tilapia (100) butternut squash (30)
- smoothie with mix, banana, strawberries and dark chocolate (235)
- cappuccino (50)
- wrap with turkey and laughing cow cheese (175)
- celebration bar (80)
- jello (20)
- popcorn with 1 t. olive oil (150)
- apple (80)
- Should total 1790 calories. I did crossfit in the morning and a 40 minute walk in the afternoon
Overall, I’m very happy with my day of food. The day before, the food list would have been twice as long!
Enjoy your Friday Eve!
This week’s weigh-in will be baaaaddddd, I call it the three strikes against me. #1 SORE legs and butt (water retention) #2 BAAAADDDD eating (water retention from carbs) #3 TOM is here, enough said.
Instead of dwelling on how bad it’s going to be I’m going to focus on how much I enjoyed the gym this morning. It’s such a wonderful group of people that I get to work out with each day. It makes me proud to accomplish the workouts each day.
A) Strict Pull-ups, 10min AMRAP
If you can get body weight pull-ups, increase your reps from last week or add weight. If you are using a band(s) for assistance then increase the difficulty. Remember, the goal is to finish the month being stronger with your pull-ups!
With a Partner:…
Row: Max distance in 8 min, switching every 250M
Rest 4 min
Burpees: Max in 8 min, switching every 10-15
Rest 4 min
Run: Max distance in 8 min, done in alternating 200M runs
Notes: This will be an “I go, you go” WOD so only one person will be working at a time.
My partner today was Jess B. We rowed 1500 meters, did 120 burpees and ran 2200 meters. Not too shabby!
On tap for today….
- shopping before Weight Watchers
- Working and weighing in at WW
- work library 5-8:30
Tomorrow morning is my day of rest and I plan on doing that workout on Saturday morning.
Enjoy your day!
Happy Tuesday! I decided to try every other Tuesday morning at the gym. The girls did just fine on their own getting ready for school, as I knew they would. The bad part was I only saw them for 10 minutes before they left for the day.
A) Press, 2×4@70%, 2×4@75%, 1×4@80%, 2:30 clock
B) Cleans from high hang, 3×3@80%, 2 min clock
C) C&J, 5×1 heavier than last week (last week was 85%) 1:30 clock
3 rounds for max reps
1 min ME HSPU
1 min box jumps (set down)
1 min ME row (calories)
Notes: this is basically 9 min at max effort. Cycle through in order but you can start in any station. Transition quickly!
Today’s workout was good. I felt good with all my lifts today and completed 140 reps on the final workout. I didn’t have time to stretch after since I wanted to head home. I’m going downstairs soon to watch the last episode of Hell’s Kitchen and exercise, I’ll do some stretching and rolling out then.
Enjoy the day!
