Today’s workout: 30 Day Shred, Level 1 w/ mostly 5 lb weights and modified pushups (had to jump back down to 3 lb weights on the second set of squat presses).
Arms are already feeling the increase in weights – which surprises me. The 3 pound weights almost felt like nothing – well, not nothing – but definitely like I could do more.
Other than the arm soreness, I feel amazing this morning – physically and mentally. I am in the best of moods – feeling like what I am doing IS making a difference, and that I can sustain this. It’s not so bad waking up early and working out – and it’s not bad portioning and tracking my food.
Yesterday’s food: Points allowed: 22; Activity Points earned: 4; Points used: 25.5; No weeklies used! Weeklies left: 22.5.
I stayed within my points on Valentine’s Day! My husband always cooks for us on Valentine’s – Shrimp Creole – which takes hours to make. We didn’t eat until late, and once again, I was hungry when I got home from work. At least this time, it wasn’t that fierce hungry. Had a little snack to tide me over – probably not the healthiest. I need to go to fruits and veggies in times like those.
Tonight, we are going out to dinner with some friends, and since I get off work at noon, I plan on getting in a few more Activity Points to mitigate whatever I eat tonight. I will control myself, but since I have no idea where we’re going, I just want to be prepared.
