Busy social calendar = bad diet days

I have been so bad with blogging but I’ll give you a quick update of what you missed:
(not of just food, but everything)

Thursday I did averagely well on my diet. I did have a piece of Aubrey’s birthday cake and some Nutter Butters (again) but I did dance the night away as Sassy Ann’s with Katie, Aaron and Brett, so I know I burnt that crap off. There is no way I burn less than 200 calories an hour shakin my wanie fanie (funky song funky song)

Friday I worked late (well like 6:45) and then met up with Taylor at the park. I ate healthy all day except for TAYLOR MADE ME go to McDonalds with him and I somehow ended up with fries… ahhhhhhhhhh! I know! I don’t even like fries!!! But we did walk all the way there and back from Worlds Fair so that burns a lot of calories right? And we laughed a whole lot so that burns even more. He is on this I refuse to drive my car thing so we were walking everywhere. (Good for us) I am excited though because I just got my bike back from the church and Jaime Ketchen, Ben Fair and Taylor Brown all said we could go riding.

Deep thought side noted: While we were at McDonalds Taylor and I talked about my meanness (I fussed at Kat and felt bad so I asked him if I was a bia and doomed for life…)
He said I wasn’t a bia.
Naturally you are quicker to anger with the people you are the closest to. And you aren’t afraid to show it.
He gave me some really good advice to think about. He said that part of that is just how I am, but a way to work on my attitude and behavior, is when things really peeve me off, I almost need to take myself out of the situation and be like this is making ME mad, but what does the actual situation look like? Is it a big deal? Why am I so upset? Am I being selfish by only thinking about how I feel? I need to remember that I tend to over react and take that into consideration. Instead of automatically reacting to a situation, I need to respond in a way that takes my feelings and the others into account.

Saturday was really bad…. I’m not gonna lie… I had a fantastic omelet at the tailgate though. We all got there at like 9 (make it 10 for me because I walked from BFE) and Eric make omelets from scratch! Personalized! Anything we wanted in them! mmmm so good. And we had cantaloupe, grapes, cinnamon rolls, sausage, hash brows, biscuits, and much more! Now I didn’t eat all that I was just braggin on Monafo’s tailgate. Everyone was there and it was so great. Even Jesse was in town (my best friend Kat’s boyfriend) so it was overall a perfect day. Channing, Sara, Brett, Kat, Jesse, Matt, VInce, Rebecca, Jen, Corey, Megan. Who could ask for anything more? :)

Very impressive. Pictures to come. I didn’t have my camera but everybody else took plenty.
And we made a pyrimid.



Diet Day 1

Thanks but no thanks to the AWESOME apple crisp Sara fed us at small group tonight (: I didn’t stick to my diet… It was so freaking good though! Actually I had already broken it because I ate a NutterButter with Drew. It was only day one and I worked out so hard this morning, right?
Oohhh justification.

I did eat less than I was supposed to though because I have not gone to the grocery yet… but for the first day, I did pretty good. And I bought this protein for my best friend but he doesn’t work out these days and since it was about 50 bucks, I figure I shouldn’t let it go to waste, so I had that (I almost spelled that waist haha, and if I don’t work out enough that’s exactly where it is going to go!!) I hear protein for girls is dangerous.

Oh yea! I didn’t tell you guys what Harith’s diet was yet…

Meal One4 egg whites 1 yoke
2 pieces whole wheat toast or
Oatmeal with splenda or
100% whole wheat cereal with skim milk

Meal Twoprotein shake and fruit or
low carb yogurt

Meal Threegrilled fish or chicken
sweet potato or baked potato or brown rice
steamed vegetables

Meal Fourdeli turkey 2 pieces low carb whole wheat bread or
tuna & canned red kidney beans with salsa

Meal Fivegrilled fish or chicken with steamed vegetables
and salad with fat free dressing

Special thanks to Alice for her healthy snack she always brings to small group. I love you girls. Each and every one of you is an answered prayer.
Kat told me Harith was really excited to train me and that I did a really good job today. That really makes you happy. Harith may be a old perv, but it’s still some how rewarding to get his compliments and approval.

I need to remember the point is also for me to be HEALTHIER, not just eat less. Today was overall a good day eating wise.  Emotionally a little rough, but i need to remember food does nothing for me, neither does man. God is my only source of stregth and true unfailing satisfaction.

Day 1 Fitness Regimen

My Gym

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

I started back with Harith (my person trainer) today at 180 Fitness and am about to die. Well, I am better now but when I was exercising I was about to die. I have not been that worn out in a looOong time. We will say today was my first workout since I haven’t been in about a month. I play soccer but have had the last few weeks off so I am fairly out of shape.

When we started working out Harith said, “I see you haven’t been working out with weights since I saw you last..” My mouth dropped wide open.He said, “No, no, you look good, I can just tell you haven’t been using weights.”…ouch.So no more of that. I am back in it! Soccer is starting again and my schedule is pretty consistent.

Here is what I did this morning….

-10 minutes warm up on EFX

– lay face up on bench, straighten and lift legs off bench and keep abs contracted while doing 15 chest presses (12 lbs)

– run one lap

-15 each lat pulls on bench (15 lbs)

-run two laps

-15 each bicep curls (10 lbs)

-run three laps

-100 bicycle crunches

-THIS WAS AWFUL: get on a dead (unplugged) treadmill, grab handlebars and force mat to move as you start to run. The resistance is incredible! and it was so hard! My heart rate was sky high! Run for 30 seconds.

This was the circuit I did three times!

I was dead. No lie. Wish I had someone to carry me out.

i took this picture to show how sweaty i was even AFTER the drive home. It didn’t really turn up but there is a drop coming off my nose if you look close enough! And a vein protruding from my forhead.

...Tired and sweaty...

...Tired and sweaty...

He took my measurements too… I’ll try to get those sometime so I can keep up with that. He also gave me a diet and insists I stick to it. I will try to stick to it for at least two weeks (that is the next time he measures me and I weigh in). When I have more time I may put it up here in case any of you ladies are interested.

I don’t plan on too many people seeing this so I will just throw my weigh and measurements out there for personal use. You can stop reading now b/c the rest is just numbers! Wish me luck!

At 180 I weighed 147
At home this morning post workout I weighed 140.4 with BMI of 25.8

Surely I didn’t lose 7lbs haha I am sure there is a drastic difference on the scale.
