Just in case I needed further proof about how important your food intake is.....
This morning I woke up feeling SKINNY. I have been following my fitness plan with both weights and running, playing with the Wii Fit. Of course I feel skinny. I can tell my posture has improved. I think I stand up straighter when I'm following a balanced plan just because I'm proud.
I forgot (yes, actually forgot) to weigh yesterday, so off I toodled first thing this morning, down two level to the scale. Up 2.7. F*ck. F*ck. F*ck. I peruse my handy dandy fitbook. Hmmm, when husband asked if I wanted a beer and clam, I said yes....I then got the munchies.....when I was coming home from the gym after my LSD run I was feeling peckish and so I purchased chips...you get the idea. I wrote down everything I ate. And, oh, what a week I had. The high I got from all the exercise made me think I needed more junk food.
80% diet, 20% exercise. I know this. And yet, I seem to need to reinforce it ONE MORE TIME!!!!!
So, my positive that I am taking from this week is that I did, in fact, stick to my exercise plan. I followed a well balanced fitness plan to the letter. My heart is healthier this week than it was last week. As I mentioned, my posture is already better.
This week I also learned the importance of filling myself with quality foods. Not all points are equal. Journalling is only useful if you go back and look to see where you went wrong. Another lesson learned. Phew! I'm tired from all this learning!! ;-)
I went to the Club right away this a.m. after dropping daughter at the bus. Good time to go for sure. No one was there yet. Most of the other stay at homers seem to come after 9:00. Anyhooo, I had to do a 6.5k run this morning, which went really well (in that I felt good while doing it). Sadly, a really old guy walking on a treadmill 3 or 4 down fell. OMG! I felt so bad for him. He went right off the end and really scrapped up his knees. He is like two years younger than God and wears a head gear hearing aid and he is up there every day working out. He even does weights - it's kinda cute. Anyhow, I felt awful. He had lots of help getting up right away. I'm sure he was embarrassed.
I also worked on my trouble spots today. It was hard to get through the second set - just because I was tired from the run. But I got it done.
Not much on the agenda today. Get some housework done. Puppy is at doggy daycare so it will be easier to vacuum.
Have a healthy day bloggers!
