Saturday July 21st & Sunday July 22nd Daily
When in doubt, work it out.
Still taking it one day at a time for now. Woke up semi-early today and had this really bad craving for biscuits and sausage/gravy. So I went to the store after having looked up ‘healthy’ alternatives and found that by using whole grain/whole wheat rolls as well as turkey sausage the calories per serving can be cut in half! However, I didn’t exactly get the right kind of turkey sausage and the dish didn’t turn out quite like I had expected it to, but A for effort… Until next time.
Then, I decided to go on a surprise trip with my guy to Main Street Cupcakes and Sweet Melissa’s. We indulged (a little too much) in some sweet tooth cupcakes and I do regret it because it pushed me way over my cals for the day.
He got an Ice Cream Cupcake and a Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcake (yuck! lol) I got a Chocolate Lava and Red Velvet Cupcake.
After all of that settled down I went to lifeguard and I managed water jog and tread water which was a nice active recovery workout.
Then after work I headed out to dinner with my family for a birthday celebration, we went to an Italian restaurant. And I was torn between getting spaghetti and meatballs (which I should have) but instead I got stuffed manicotti… and it was kind of disappointing. That and the fact that I ate like 3 pieces of bread and had a field day with the carbs.. Oops. However, I did manage to pass up the dessert (ice cream) since I had overloaded this morning with cupcakes, sausage, biscuits, the whole nine.
Today was a very busy day.
I headed down to my grandpa’s house, worked on my car, changed the oil before heading back to school, and rotated the tires.
Met up with the boy, got some Chipotle and Starbucks. Chipotle was delicious, left the sour cream on the side so I didn’t over indulge and then got a light/nonfat frapp from Starbucks.
After that I went out on a run in the midday heat. Which was a little rough, but I survived. Then I headed to lifeguard at the pool for a good part of the day. I ended up swimming laps for a longer amount of time than I expected… I was shooting for an hour but that was unrealistic after having just run and I got to work too late.
Got home and cooked semi-healthy food, but I snacked on some food that I didn’t record and could have probably avoided.
Today’s workout was great! I enjoy the weekends to dedicate time to just working out. I walked the dog and worked at the pool (lifeguarding) for the day so that totaled up to around 60 minutes/1 hour of time. I water jogged for 11 minutes and then tread water for 15 minutes. Great active recovery, and burned a decent amount of cals.
Today’s workout was phenomenal. So proud of the butt kicking I did. I did a 45 minute run in the middle of the day (hot hot hot!) which isn’t my norm. I usually run at night or when the sun’s about to go down, so this was a bit of a struggle, at least I thought it would be since my asthma still kicks in when the humidity is intense. Surprisingly though, I managed to run the same route and it was only 4 minutes longer this time around, having done it in the middle of the day/in the heat.
Then at the pool, I swam laps for 30 minutes. Walked a ton! Since I was lifeguarding and taking care of the dog still. (Not to mention, working on my car, lifting the tires, crawling around under it, etc.)
According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 2,823 calories and consumed 1,741 for the day.
Lean Italian Turkey Sausage, Half of a whole wheat bun (instead of biscuits), Clementine, and two cupcakes (Woof!)
Baby carrots, little bit of light ranch/reduced fat, half of a cucumber, some tomatoes, clementine, and tuna with a bit of mayo
Went out to eat with the family. Had stuffed manicotti, too many slices of Italian bread, a meatball, and a side salad.
According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 3,463 calories and consumed 1,228 for the day.
Starbucks light/nonfat Java Chip Frappachino, Chipotle – burrito bowl, brown rice, black beans, steak, lettuce, mild salsa, light cheese, and sour cream on the side.
Whole wheat thin spaghetti with cooked mushrooms and spinach, lunchmeat – turkey, banana, tomatoes, peas, and a clementine.
