It was a H
T day today, nearly 100 degrees with humidity (and 91 without)! I went to do my walk this morning but I could only get in 20 minutes instead of 30. I was starting to get a headache from the heat and figured I should quit while I was ahead. That was good planning, on my part - I still felt a little crummy for the rest of the day. I ended up with 1376 in calories for the day, and 400 calories burned in exercise (I just finished day 2 week 2 of ripped in 30). Tomorrow is my day off exercise-wise, I have no idea how it ended up being Wednesday but it works for me.
to the thread! We'd love to have you join us. It sounds like you're off to a great start - I sympathize with your struggle of breaking bad habits. Over the years I've become accustomed to buying something to eat/drink whenever I'm in the car. Lately I've been talking to myself the entire time I drive somewhere, going over the reasons why I can't stop somewhere. It's tough, but it does get easier! Just keep up the good work
Oy vey! I'm glad you were at least able to get SOME exercise in - I hope your step class tomorrow is awesome enough to make up for it!
I hope your allergy tests come back with some answers. It's definitely a bummer having a food allergy, but knowing is so much better than not knowing!
In case I can't make it to the boards tomorrow,
I had the same reaction when I did my calorie count - I didn't realize how much I burned while exercising, so seeing my daily calorie needs was like, WHOA! Glad to hear you're getting your game plan together.
Sorry to hear that you're feeling low today. I really admire you for getting out and taking care of errands despite how crummy you were feeling. I hope you have a great night and feel better in the morning!
on the drop back down!
How's the puppy?? I've had way too many scares with things like that, mostly with chocolate. I remember once when I was little, one of our yellow lab-mixes got into my halloween candy and ate roughly two POUNDS of chocolate. We were all SO stressed out and worried. It ended up that he was completely unaffected by it, which I still don't understand. But I'm hoping it turns out well for you, too...
mmmmmmmmmm grilled veggies! I love grilled red peppers, onion, green squash, and mushroom - you can't beat it.
Congrats on the pound!
Ripped in 30 is a Jillian Michaels dvd. It's royally whooping my behind, but it's just the kind of no-nonsense motivation that works best for me.
3 circuits consist of 3 minutes of strength, 2 of cardio, and one of abs. It's rough, but after finishing one of those workouts without dying, I really do feel like I've accomplished something big. I highly recommend it!
My mouth was watering reading about that spinach and goats cheese pizza - I make a homemade version of that, with garlic butter and caramelized red onion. I haven't made it in a while (soooo fatty), but reading your post makes me want to whip out the frying pan....
.....but then again maybe not!
Glad to hear you had a good day!
Hugs to anyone I missed, and keep up the good work! We're doing great!
