Whew, what a week of workouts. I was on the workout TRAIN last week. It’s helpful that I had four days off so I was able to focus on it more, but still! Here is what I did last week in the gym.
Workin’ on my fitness
Wednesday: About an hour of random leg workouts (kettlebell, deadlifts, leg press, stair master, etc.)
Thursday: 25-minutes of arms/shoulders; 50-minute cardio kickboxing class (HOLY CRAP)
Friday: 1-hour spin class
Saturday: 1-hour walk down the trail (gym was closed for the holiday)
Sunday: Legs! Deadlifts, kettlebell stuff, leg press and I even tried out the squat rack – thankful for an empty gym
Monday: Rest day aka The Bachelorette was on and I didn’t want to miss it. (:
Tuesday: Apparently another rest day, unless you count crying while watching the Backstreet Boys movie on Netflix a “workout”
All the foods
Food went “pretty” well this past week – better than most weeks. Since I’m on the 10-Day Cleanse from AdvoCare, (which P.S. I’m LOVING – done on Thursday – let me know if you want any info!) I had to be good. Now, I won’t lie. I “cheated” twice – Friday night I had a sangria and two sushi rolls and Saturday I had three sangrias. You’re not supposed to have those things on the cleanse and I do think it messed with me a teeny bit, but it was the fourth of July … I was on a patio … I CAN’T HELP IT!
For the most part, my meals have looked like this – lottttts of freshly made pico (and Chipotle or Quest bars when I’m tired of ground turkey).
I will say I paid DEARLY for those sangrias (and a pepsi) on Saturday, though. I’m guessing it was the bubbles, but my stomach bloated up like a balloon and it hurt SO BAD. I haven’t had that issue in a really long time because I’ve cut out most dairy and soy in my diet (which is normally what affects me) so now I’m guessing the bubbles don’t help either – especially when I wasn’t drinking much water.
I’m probably going to regret putting this on the internets, but few people believe me when I say I bloat that much. In fact, I made my friend Saige touch my stomach once when that happened because I wanted SOMEONE to understand that my body hates me. Thankfully when I woke up the next morning, the bloating had gone away and my stomach was no longer stabbing me with knives.
Let’s be real, now. I’m so sick of ground turkey and chicken and it’s not even funny. I need to start experimenting a bit more with cooking. Maybe cooking one “fun” meal a week to start out with. I don’t want to cook ALL new meals, because 1) I’m poor and don’t have money for groceries and 2) I’m busy (read: lazy) and don’t have time. I’m thinking I’m going to start with the recipe that Megan sent me the other day – thanks, girl!
Starting weight: 137.2 (mind you, it jumped up to 138.6 last Tuesday when I weighed in for the challenge, so it’s throwing me off – that’s why I should only weigh myself once a week)
Current weight: 135.2 as of today – will weigh myself again on Friday to see how the challenge went
Goal weight: 125
