I Still Hurt

Yes, my muscles are still sore from my 5 AM workout that was on MONDAY morning. I told one of the trainers there was a nice place for him and he just smiled back and asked where. I even got a little snarky with him when we were doing an exercise too. That is so not me. I was just hurting from my waist down. I will probably be hurting from the waist up because we did arms today. Oh joy.

I did pretty well eating yesterday. My only slip up was the second serving (or 2) of Doritos I had last night when I should have just gone to bed.

Oh and my but and thighs hurt so bad I thought I was going to throw up at work yesterday. Pleasant I know ;)

I Didn't Say it Was Going to be Easy...

or that I was going to be perfect either about this whole getting back on track thing.

My workout yesterday was really hard, it wasn't just in my head. I was pretty sore all afternoon (I am usually not sore until the next day). I feel even more sore today.

Last night Mexican food was my downfall. I ate TOO many chips, taco, burrito, and some rice and beans. No alcohol! It could have been worse. We lost our football game, but it was a great showing by our team.

I went to bed late last night. When the alarm went off at 4:30 I did not want to get up. I seriously considered skipping the gym. I finally got out of bed around 4:45 and was at the gym just after 5. I hopped on my beloved arctrainer and read New Moon. I am almost done :) Then I got on the treadmill for about 40 minutes and upped my speed to 3.5 mph. I had slipped into a habit of a leisurely walk at 3.0 mph and I know I can do better than that. Stretched for a good 20 minutes.

I have got my lunch in the fridge at work and I am going to make something healthy for dinner.

Have a great Tuesday!

The Details

I weighed this morning... 213.

Wow. I knew it would be above 200, but I assumed it would be in the 205-210 range.

I have got my work cut out for me.

By the way, my workout this morning was crazy hard. I wonder if it was actually harder, or if my mind just thought it was harder because I weighed before working out??

So I am going to start journal my points again and write down how much I exercise.

This week like all weeks is going to be challenging. Here are the activities I have this week:

Monday: Flag Football Doubleheader with happy hour prior to the games (we have to play 2 games tonight) at a Mexican restaurant.

Tuesday: No activities! Yeah!...strike that, I just remembered I am meeting a guy for a drink.

Wednesday: Lunch with an old co-worker at Olive Garden (not my choice, I think the last time I went there was when I was a freshman in college which was almost 8 years ago). Dinner with a friend who is moving to Seattle in a month. I am slightly jealous. It is restaurant week here in Nashville and I am at eating at one of my favorite places in town, Jackson's. They have specials this week. I am not quite sure what I will be getting, but I know it will be good.

Thursday: Lunch with my little sister. I am bringing my lunch, because the state of school lunches is pretty pitiful. I am speaking at a grad school panel in the evening and there will be appetizers. But I don't need to eat any because I will be going out on a date at a TBD location after.

Friday: Plans TBD

Saturday: Plans TBD

Happy Monday!

Getting Back on Track

Slightly nervous about my weigh tomorrow considering it has almost been a month since I last weighed.

Somehow I don't think the 1.5 bottles of wine I drank on Friday, 3 beers, and 2 jager shots are helping my cause here. Also, the pizza, oatmeal cookies bars, and chips weren't the best choices after all. I tried to justify it by saying I don't normally drink that much and then I remembered Louisville where I drank A LOT and that was just about a month ago.

I did go to the gym yesterday (I thought I was going to die). Today however, the gym wasn't so bad. I also had flag football practice this afternoon. I hate the fact that this one guy assumes that since I am tall I am going to be good. So what, maybe I can catch the ball. But this is one sport I don't really know much about. Plus, I want it to be fun and the last thing I need is pressure.

Maybe my mom was right when she told me I just needed to stop drinking and I would probably lose all the weight I wanted to. But seriously, what's the fun in that?
