Breakfast: (eaten in car)
*Can of V8
*Arnold’s Sandwich Thin with 2 tbsp peanut butter
Snack: (eaten in the car on the way home from temping to the gym)
*2 Nature Valley Honey n Oats packets (so 4 bars all together…I was hungry!!!)
*salad: spinach, cucumbers, shredded carrots, green pepper, 1 chopped string cheese, ½ a can of tuna, 3 tbsp tzatziki sauce as dressing
As I mentioned on my twitter so I wouldn’t forget, my weigh in this morning was
So, it’s still a loss, yay, but nowhere near what I thought it would be, given my exercise and eating during the week. Hmm. I’m not really too hung up about it, because it’s a new week and my body and things will level themselves out. Maybe I had too much salt and not enough water and that made things crazygonuts.
I went to the gym today too. 35 minutes on the treadmill:
5:10 jogging (@5.0!!! I did it finally, 5 all the way through! On a 1.0 incline)
I can’t remember the exact numbers after this, I walked at 3.0 for a little while, then bumped it up along with the incline until I hit 20 minutes. I know for three minutes I was doing an incline of 7.5 at 3.5mph and it was killing me – it almost felt harder than the jogging! I also, in a fit of craziness, ran for 40-50 seconds (I didn’t see exactly when I started, so I’m guessing) on 6.0! Just to see what it felt like. It definitely got the ol’ legs moving!
So all in all, a good day. Made some money, ate well, and did some moves. I was a little bummed this morning with the numbers, but, ya know, it happens. And sometimes the numbers aren’t directly proportional to the work you put in – the body can be a crazy thing. And that’s okay! The important part, I think, is that I keep going! And I did today!
PS – Can I just say, using tzatziki sauce is the best idea I’ve ever had? Seriously, it is so damn delicious. I had always thought of it as a dip prior to now. But it’s got a great taste, and at 25 calories for 1 tbsp, it’s hard to beat. 25/tbsp for the amazing taste you get is phenomenal, especially considering that fat-free or light ranch dressing tastes like feet.
