I had a little piece of apple pie today. My best friend K. who works with me too had her birthday last Saturday and she had brought apple pie to celebrate that. It was delicious and I watched my other food today so I still stayed within my 29 points.
Tonight I have to go to the birthday of another friend of mine. She’s one of my oldest friend. I’ve known her ever since I moved her 16 years ago. But I won’t eat anything at the birthday and I also will pass on the wine tonight. I’m right on track and I want to keep it that way.
Tomorrow is my day off. I work 36 hours a week which means I have one Thursday every two weeks off. After I clean my house and do my grocery shopping I want to go for a run. The weather is perfect these days, it’s cold but clear with sunshine in the afternoons, so I look forward to my run tomorrow.
Yesterday I had planned to do the Shred but my legs were so sore of Monday’s training that I skipped. Today it’s not much better. So I decided to change my strength program in the gym. The program I follow now is too much orientated on legs in my opinion and it takes me about 1 hour and 20 minutes to finish it which is too long for me after working all day. I like workouts in the gym which take about 1 hour.
My upper body needs to be toned more most of the fat is centred on my stomach and upper arms. So I switched programs and will start a program focussed on the upper body which exists of 6 different work-outs, each have to be done twice which totals it to 12 workouts.
Further I will try to finish the 100 push up challenge: http://hundredpushups.com/ and I will try to do abdominal exercises twice week. I’ll do these after regular workouts. But I have to see how this goes because my life is already busy now.
This means in a week:
Running 2 times
Upper body weight training 2 times
Pilates 1 time
100 push up challenge 3 times a week for 10 minutes
Abdominal exercise 2 times a week for 15 minutes
What do you think? Too ambitious or not? Good decision to switch weight training or do you think I have to keep training my legs also?
What’s for dinner:
Yesterday some pork meat, potatoes and broccoli.
Today it was “hachee” beef with onions and apple, mashed potatoes and red cabbage.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
Research report: Large dishes, bowls, and serving utensils skew your idea of what’s a normal serving and prompt you to eat more – as much as 57 percent more when it comes to large ice cream bowls and scoops and 53 percent more with jumbo bowls of Chex Mix.
Nutrition shocker: The Hershey bar weighed .6 ounces in 1900, its first year on the market. Now the standard bar weighs 1.6 ounces and other sizes weigh 2.6, 4, 7 and 8 ounces.
Enjoyed a piece of apple pie but still stayed within daily WW points.
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.
