Drinking Water = Binging??

So, I thought I should explain the water leading to binging comment I made.

When I drink a lot of water, I feel full (like stuffed full). When I feel that kind of full, it used to be (and sometimes still is) because I had gone off plan. Which usually lead me to the whole "well, I've blown it now so I should keep eating" stage. Well, it turns out that I get those same urges even when I'm only full of water. Obviously I need to get past it, but until I do, I have to be careful to drink water, but not too much.

I'm already dressed for the gym so I can drop daughter at bus and then go right to the treadmill. It will be nice to have it out of the way.

I am so sore from my work out yesterday. Can I share it with you guys? Go get a pen and write it down. You will never again have an excuse to not work your muscles!!

Warm up by stepping in place.

Do 6 sets of the following: 30 seconds of squats, 30 seconds rest
Do 2 to 3 minutes of running in place (or marching if your knees hurt)
Do 6 sets of the following: 30 seconds push ups, 30 seconds rest
Do 2 to 3 minutes of running in place (or marching if your knees hurt)
Do 6 sets of the following: 30 seconds alternating lunges, 30 seconds rest
Do 2 to 3 minutes of running in place (or marching if your knees hurt)
Do 6 sets of the following: 30 seconds sit ups, 30 seconds rest
Do 2 to 3 minutes of running in place (or marching if your knees hurt)
Do 6 sets of the following: 30 seconds sumo squats, 30 seconds rest
Do 2 to 3 minutes of running in place (or marching if your knees hurt)
Do 4 sets of the following: 30 seconds front plank on elbows, 30 seconds rest
Do 2 sets of the following: 30 seconds side plank (one on each side), 30 seconds rest

Running in place can also be bum kicks, mountain climbers, ski hop, running stairs, anything that gets your heart up a bit.

Let me tell you - I am sore everywhere today. And no equipment required!!

Have a healthy day bloggers!

  1. That's interesting. I am the exact opposite. I have noticed when I don't get enough water in I over eat. Somewhere in my mind water = healthy eating.

  2. Being dressed for the gym before you leave the house is the best. My gym bag is constantly in my car with running shoes and cross-trainers in tow.

  3. Is that the order you do them in? Ie) Do 6 sets of one thing before moving to the next thing?

    That episode where the Biggest Loser people went to the Grand Canyon could have benefited from a little routine like that.
