Thank you for all the comments on my last post. I really do appreciate everyone’s comment and opinion. This is America. Say what you want whether you disagree or agree. I love to hear it all.
My whole no fried food challenge is going great. I haven’t had any fried food. August 15th is when I can buy those running shoes I want. Actually, my challenge is going so great that I gave myself a second one.
No sweets, excluding Starbucks’ coffee because I can’t resist. I can, but come on now. Starbucks is the world’s greatest… I don’t even know what to call it. It’s amazing.
So, August 1st was the start of my ‘no sweets’ challenge and so far I’m passing. Once I make it to August 21st, I plan on buying myself a purse and probably some more running clothes. I buy too much as it is so this is how I limit myself.
Besides, I feel better not eating all that crap. I really do. I have more energy and I don’t feel so loaded down. I need energy because…
Wednesday morning I woke up at 4:45 AM to work out.
I wake up to give myself fifteen minutes to get ready just to walk a few feet to the gym. It takes me longer than that because I’m so disoriented. I brush my teeth, wash my face, take my vitamins, pee, get dress, pee, and then leave. I don’t know why it takes me forever.
My workout included something similar to this:
I didn’t do the same numbers or in that order. I didn’t even do that cardio. I did do something along the lines of:
- Bicep Curls 12 x 3
- Tricep Kickbacks 12 x 3
Then ab work and then I would move on to some leg work with 12 reps x 3.
Abs and then arm work.
It took me over an hour and I did about twenty something minutes of cardio.
After all that, I got ready for work.
Breakfast is scarfed down. I had some Puffins cereal with Greek yogurt and a spoonful of peanut butter.
A second breakfast is consumed of a croissant and peanut butter.
I go, go, go and eat salads all day with protein on the side or I pick up something from the food court. I was starving today so I went to Taco Bell for beans. Good protein, eh?
I’m off at 4:30 ish . I was exhausted so I read all your blogs then decide to go on a 30 minute run outside. Despite it being cloudy and dusk, I still had to stop and take breaks. The humidity is that bad. I’m not joking. It was a good run. I love running outside. I miss it a lot. Wahhhh. Go cry about it, Christy.
Anyway, I did want to give a play by play of my day, but it’s not that exciting. I work out, work, eat, work out more, and sleep. Sleep is the best part of my day (besides working out).
Well, that does it. Sleep time for me so I can wake up again for spin class. By the way, check out Katie’s post of the awesomeness I sent her.
I’m She’s beast.
