First Week in May Workout Routine

Okay, so Monday I did not get up and go to the gym, but I DID come home and put in the SHAPE DVD I work out to. After a week and a half being sick, I did not do very well, pooping out less than halfway through the cardio sections, but I did manage to at least keep moving (slightly) for the whole 30 minutes. Ended with a stitch in my side and feeling dehydrated, so drank water and did all right for the night. Weight: 169.

Tuesday: Yay, back in the gym. Weight circuit, then ellipsis. Felt good. Don't remember what I ate, nothing extravagant. Good day.

Wednesday: Another day in the gym. OMG, sore. Ate like a pig for Cinco de Mayo (tamales, beans, cheese crisps, and OMG again, crema superior, which is Mexican sour cream that makes the regular stuff look (and taste) kinda like slightly thickened skim milk. Then had a sugar-coated pan dulce with strawberry stuff in the center). Weight: 170.

Thursday: Still a little sore; slept in, did not go to the gym. Came home and did a FULL 30-minute workout with the DVD, including all the cardio sections, pretty perfectly, then went out and ran the dog around a while. Not bad eating-wise, one leftover tamale (still more crema superior, though), but did have ice cream for dessert.

Friday: Am up for the gym. Expect to do at least 40 minutes on the ellipsis, may come home and do the DVD, depending on how quickly I get here. Weight: 172.


My thanks to virtual workout buddy framefolly, who got me working again!

I've been trying too. Did really good on Sunday and Monday and Tuesday then Whammo! Got a migraine on Wednesday. Probably back at it tomorrow.

It's Staff Appreciation week as well as Fat Friday. I'm arming myself with homemade oatmeal and my own (small) lunch. Go team.

I stopped to get myself a good, heavy whole-grain bread so I can have toast at work (we have a full kitchen in our building, lucky for me), and plan to make a good bean dish this weekend -- fiber and fullness! *crossed fingers!*

good for you getting going again. that's more than I've done (though whatever we did in PT yesterday has left me very sore today)

I wouldn't worry too much over a pound or two fluctuation. Between female hormones and scale variance..

Oh, I know; I just like to keep an eye on it; at least now I'm fluxing only up to 170-172 or so instead of 178-180. But I will rest the weekend and let my muscles recover!

that's a better number to flux b etween. I got on my scale today and it gave me three different numbers in a row but they all agreed I lost another five pound and i have no idea how. i've b een eating like a pig lately

Just after my Florida vacation and Thanksgiving, I was inexplicably down to 158. I'd done nothing at all special during that time (except be sick), I continued to do nothing special through the holidays, and came out where I am now at the top of January (166-172).

I would love to have 158-160 as my flux for a while...

yeah I can't say as I blame you. this is the least I've weighed since my body went haywire 15 years ago

Remember that muscle weighs more than fat! :-)

That's why I'm wearing a size 8 now instead of the 14 I USED to wear at this weight! :-)

Did my 15 minutes of super!wimpy Wii today. Broke into a sweat, too, even though the most strenuous thing I did was to flap my arms to simulate a chicken (I'll show you next time you come -- it must be seen to be believed!)

Haven't lost any weight -- think I gained some. Must be that bag of delicious evil cheesy puffs.

Tomorrow I go to a yoga class with a friend -- another cop out of a work out. But it will make me feel less guilty for dinner ;)

Don't worry, yoga is a GREAT workout! Even slow movements use lots and lots of good muscle!

Am so full of Indian food, cannot move! Perhaps next week I can try and behave myself...
