Beach-Ready Plan May 2009 Shape Magazine D4, W1

Today is just cardio.

I am so sore - how sore you ask - so sore that the only part of my body that ISN'T are my ears.  I'm not kidding.  I actually had trouble hitting the snooze button this morning on the alarm!!

Obviously, this meant that I wasn't chomping at the bit to get to the elliptical up at the Club.  I never made it up there till after 11 this morning!  And even then, the whole drive to the club (the entire 8 minutes) I just kept repeating - I don't want to do this, I don't want to do this.  You know what got my feet on that machine?  The thought of having to report here that I didn't!!

After the elliptical interval program, I hopped on the treadmill and did a mystery hill program for 30 minutes (it was kinda fun - it didn't show the profile on the screen - just a great big question mark!).  I typically walk the dog for 5k, but he is at doggy daycare getting his hair done!  Thought I would do some treadmill time to make up for missing that.

Once I was done all of that, and all stretched out (which totally killed by the by) I treated myself to lunch at the Club.  I had the garden salad with the grilled chicken breast on it.  Man, it is so friggen good!!  

I was reading blogs yesterday and I came across one that counted around 70 calories for an activity point on WW.  I've always used 50, but I figured best to be cautious, so I recalculated my activity points for the week.

To that end, this is where I'm sitting food wise:

Monday 22 pts target, 20 Flex, 5AP earned
Tuesday 22 pts target, 1 Flex, 2AP earned
Wednesday 22 pts target, 13.5 Flex, 3AP earned

Monday & Wednesday evenings I was alone for more than I usually am.  You can totally see this in my flex pt consumption.

Not much else on the agenda for today.  Belly dance tonight, which is scaring the hell out of me because it hurts to breath.  Grey's tonight.  If they don't kill Izzy soon I will have a stroke.  I'm thinking they will cure her, but her memory will be gone and then we will have a whole season next year of her being even more annoying.  ARGH!!!!

Have a healthy day bloggers!

    It's very inspiring to read about all the workouts and cardio you are doing! I am curious, though - what is a triceps pushup?

  2. I use 100 points as an AP, I figured WW does it that way so even if you eat them all, you are only eating 1/2 the calories you burn.

  3. That's why I love this blogging. Accountability!!

    I played around with the WW points/calories and found that some foods are approx. 50 calories with 1 point and others are 70-100 calories with 1 point. It all depends on how much fiber is in the food.
