I'm cautiously optimistic today that I'm back on track. I've been very careful with my eating this week and I've gone back to working out at home (as well as at the gym at work) for at least 40-45 mins. That night workout is adding just enough burned calories each day to add up to over 500 burned for the day. That seems to be the magic number. The scale was 2 pounds lighter this morning. I know I said yesterday that I didn't expect to see any loss right away so I was pleasantly surprised (OK...I was ECSTATIC!) to see that drop. I don't know what my weigh in tomorrow will show but I hope for a no gain weigh in.
I was right at 1400 calories for the day yesterday. Mid range for me. I even had some ice cream. Then at about 8 PM I started my workout. I was almost done when I had to pause the game and tuck hubby into bed. I still ended up with 45 mins of cardio and some yoga. I did some punching, some ab work, some dance, and the yoga. I'll admit that even though I hit the treadmill or the elliptical everyday at work I'm still struggling with the stuff at home. Lunges, squats, jumping, pushups, etc. I still get out of breath. And I know I'm not doing some of them right...but I'm fat...so it's hard to do a correct roll up on the floor etc. I'll just have to keep at it.
Tonight I'll do the workout at about 8:30 (after The Big Bang Theory). I've been using weights hand weights for anything that I do with my arms. I did think I'd be sorer then I am, but maybe that's a good thing.
I talked to my daughter this morning...it seems my 12 yr old grandson has a GIRL FRIEND! Her name is Giselle and she's in his class at school. I feel so OLD now! Anyway...my half grandson is coming with them when they come to visit in March. Tucker is like a yr older then Caleb. Tucker, Caleb, and Malia share a dad (my SIL Nick). so I think of Tucker as another grandson. He's a great kid (we met him last yr). We're excited to have them all come down. Well...OK...maybe I'm a TAD more excited then hubby! But he's excite too.
Hubby may have the weekend off! But that is a two edge sword...if he has it off that means less spending money for Hawaii. I told him I can sell of my company stock so we have enough (is there such a thing as "enough" spending money when going on a trip for two weeks?) to spend. But he wants to see if we can get by without me doing that. I don't mind doing that. It's only about $3000 or so. And we have to sell all of it. Just some of it.
OK...I'm done here today! Tomorrow is TGIF!!! So see you all on the flip side!
