Day 31

Obviously it has been a few days since my last post. I apologize. Here is a recap of my week:

Day 29: Got up a little early and did the 20 minute "But & Balance" workout on the Body Rev Cardio Conditioning DVD. I think I did pretty good with my diet. Obviously I don't remember it that well. In the evening I did the 60 minute cardio workout, which kicked my butt. The only hiccup in that workout was that Emersyn did not want to go to bed and cried for a while until I broke off my workout and held her for about 10 minutes until she calmed down and I was able to put her down and not listen to her scream. I then picked up the workout where I left off and finished strong.

Day 30: One word sums up my day: SORE! The Body Rev workout really focused on the hamstrings and lower back with a lot of weight swings and lunges. I was sooooo sore and could barely walk. Getting only five hours of frequently interrupted sleep (thanks Anbo) didn't help my body build up what Bob had torn down the night before. And there was no way I could work out. I decided to try to get plenty of sleep in order to let my body recoup a bit. And I tried not to eat too bad.

And now for today. Back on the workout train: 60 minutes of Pure Burn Super Strength. It's actually 66 minutes. I hate when they do that.

Diet was decent: big bowl of cereal washed down with coffee for breakfast, no sugar added mocha ice blended from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for a pre-lunch snack (only 130 calories), a frozen meal for lunch chased by an apple, Dominos pizza (three medium slices of black olive, onion, and pineapple) and carrots for dinner, and a post-workout protein shake with a banana blended in for good measure.

Tomorrow will be the real test. I took the day off of work for my sister-in-law's wedding so I have the opportunity to sleep in, but I should work out in the morning since I won't get the chance later in the day. And then there's the wedding food...and cupcakes...

I'll let you know how poorly I end up doing.

Until tomorrow...

Day 28

I've decided to shake a few things up this week. First, my weigh ins will still be on Mondays but will be moved to the morning. That way I will have more consistency and won't have to worry if drinking too much water or working out on Monday will throw off my numbers.

Second, I will no longer do weekly photos. They have just been too discouraging for me because they don't show the results I constantly see in the mirror and it makes me doubt my progress. So now for the numbers:

192.7 pounds. 1.8 pounds lost.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention that I got my Bob Harper Body Rev Cardio Conditioning DVD in the mail today. I fast forwarded through the workout and know that I am in trouble.

Until tomorrow...

Day 27

Not much to report today. Didn't get up for a morning run because I was so exhausted and sore last night. I was still a bit worn out this morning so I didn't work out at all today.

Breakfast was a bowl of cereal. Lunch: a banana. We had dinner at my parents' house and I probably ate a bit too much cheese dip with chips and veggies before chicken, baked beans, salad, and a few olives. I had a small piece of cake to top it all off (we were celebrating my mom's birthday, after all) and am about to dine on some whole wheat bread and crunchy peanut butter. I don't think I went too far over my 1,500 calorie per day target.

Until tomorrow...
