Finally feeling a bit better! Not as sickly, but somewhat stuffy. But hey, I’ll take it. Had a first today… Indian Cuisine. Not a fan, but at least I tried it once. Moving on up in the world haha! On a side note, having some extra drama and stress in my life is driving me batty but it’s keeping me motivated. Like a fire was lit under my ass and I’ve been a a movin’!
Body Update: Feeling some sharp pain today, more nerve pain like my sciatic nerve because it’s shooting down my leg, same old. However, after Yoga, it definitely got stretched out really good and hoping to wake up tomorrow with it feeling a lot better?! Positive Polly, eh?
Today was definitely one of the best workouts I’ve had in a while. I did really well in the Centergy Yoga/Pilates class at Fitworks and then I ran!!! Had immense pain in my whole leg during and right after stopping running. It was horrible. I just turned my iPod up louder blasting to GirlTalk and made the most of it. I ran 2.73 miles between a 1-3 incline for 28 minutes and walked a few minutes as a cool down. Didn’t stop once! But that’s because I was on a treadmill. Who knew?! I just focused on my iPod and the Food Network and ESPN shows on the TVs in front of me.. Got me through it easily and went by pretty quickly. Once I got home I iced my groin, outside of my hip, and leg for an hour, ice on and off.
According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 2,904 calories and consumed 795 for the day. Breakfast was decent; applesauce, milk, bananas, strawberries, and orange juice. Lunch was a first… Indian cuisine. Not a fan, but hey, I tried it at least. Didn’t end up eating dinner because I didn’t like what was in the fridge and really didn’t have an appetite. Snacked on some candy again.. guilty.
Feeling like crap still. Could not stay awake or motivated at work = Not Good. At All. Only highlight of my day was going to lunch, which I ate LIKE A BOSS! and swimming! And damnit I’m still out there like a champ regardless of feeling like crud. Went to lunch downstairs at Bar Louie which can be tempting to those cravings in the back of my head, however I got a blackened tilapia po’ boy sandwich with a side of black beans and rice. Only at the blackened fish and lettuce/tomato off the sandwich, left the rice, and ate the black beans. Really proud of myself for that. After work, went up to the pool to renew my certifications and stayed and swam for as long as I could (definitely out of shape and hard to breathe being sick).
Body Update: Feeling sharp pain today, more nerve pain like my sciatic nerve because it’s shooting down my leg now.. awesome blossom.
I swam for 15 minutes doing full laps in the pool, alternating freestyle and breaststroke. So out of breathe and felt like I was sinking when I got tired from my huge tree trunks of leg muscle mass… Also, I loved my recovery/catching my breath slowing down the pace instead of just stopping completely when I did freestyle.
According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 2,607 calories and consumed 1,209 for the day. Breakfast was delicious! I heard trying brown sugar was healthier than white sugar so I had Oatmeal with some brown sugar, an english muffin, and some orange juice. I had a snack of two baby KitKats. Whoops. Lunch was blackened Tilapia and black beans. Dinner was barely over an ounce of lean burger, broccoli, meunster cheese, and half a bun. Had a handful (which I counted each cracker) of Cheez-Its. Today was full of processed foods/snacks towards the end of the day. Gotta watch those cravings when I’m sick I guess.
