July 15th Sunday Semi-Fun Day



Last day of the weekend. Bittersweet. Had a good night last night, spent some time with one of my closest friends and getting up this morning was not the easiest. I didn’t go out and drink or anything, but I think my body is just a bit beat down. I went to bed thinking that I would wake up nice and early and get a good Yoga/Centergy and Spinning class in but I didn’t budge when that alarm went off… Well, I did move but I justified to myself, in my sleep that I didn’t need to go. I thought that all I had to do was head to the pool and do an hour or more of water jogging since that’s the way to lose the fat?


So, off to the pool I went. Nice and early, ready to workout and then work away. Well, the pool ended up being a huge clusterf*ck. The supervisor let the pool party in too early and demanded that I clock in and go up in chair. Seriously pissed me off and put me in the worst mood ever. I guess I’m becoming a bit of a workout diva.

After the shift from hell was finished, I was still steaming and headed down to my other grandparents house. It’s a good 45 minute drive from where I work and the traffic on a Sunday you’d think wouldn’t be too bad or treacherous, but I was already ticked off and everything was just making my mood worse. Ugh!

Made it to his house in one piece. They had cooked a delicious dinner! It was much easier to control my portions and pick what I was eating. I had a good salad, small cup of fruit, some of the baked chicken dish with green beans, corn, carrots, pasta, and these cheddar biscuit things did me in! Yikes! However, it was National Ice Cream day apparently, so my tiny bit of strawberry ice cream and some whipped cream was justifiable, eh?





Aside from being at the pool and not water jogging or swimming or anything of the sort, I figured the only way to get out of my shitty mood was to go and run. So I did, and it was a mile marker kind of run. I ran for 50 minutes straight without stopping! That’s a pretty effin’ big deal people!

50 minutes. Non-stop. Get It GURL!







 It says I mapped it on Monday, but that’s because I wait until I get to work in the morning to ‘Map My Run‘.


According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 3,105 calories and consumed 1,195 for the day. Started off the day kind of eating like garbage. Had a bowl of Apple Jacks cereal with milk, and some whole wheat toast with jelly. Then soon after since I didn’t get up early, I had some leftover Alfredo Pasta. At the pool I had a piece of celery with peanut butter, a tomato, half a corn on the cob, and a tangerine. Dinner at my Grandpa’s house was fresh blueberries, strawberries, and pineapple. Salad with cucumber, spinach, mixed greens, feta, a little bit of dressing, red pepper, and then dinner was baked chicken with kind of a cream of chicken feel, green beans, corn, carrots, a pasta side dish that wasn’t very good but I had some, and then those cheddar biscuits from hell!! SO good! Then some strawberry ice cream with a bit of whipped cream.

I know I went over budget with my calories and the portions had to be off and still some bits I forgot to add to my log before I posted.
