Monday, 5/15 Leg Workout

After not visiting the gym in a long time, I finally made the trek there last night and did a leg workout. I’ll admit, it was not the best leg workout and I have plenty of excuses for why. But I will instead just focus on doing better next time. Legs: 10 minute warm up…

I Did It!

I worked out again! It was only 20 minutes on the elliptical at work, but I did it. Hoooraw! My work is so nice in that they provide a gym, a nice locker room and showers. I needed that shower because I was a sweaty gross mess and I also had not washed my hair…

Back to Life. Back to Reality.

After a week long eating vacation, it’s time to get back to it. This declared eating vacation officially ended last Sunday. I did a terrible job of prepping food so barely ate on Monday (which was more by choice – after stuffing my face all week, I really wasn’t hungry). And then I did low…

Monday 4/24 Weigh In

I’ve made progress! This morning I stepped on the scale and it said 153.8  lbs. That’s 7.2 lbs from my start weight. I’m well on my way! I’ve noticed that I’m unintentionally doing an intermittent fasting sort of diet. It’s not on purpose, I just eat my breakfast and however many meals I can during…

Sunday – Back Workout

On Saturday, I took my baby for a 2 mile walk after I finished at work. I didn’t follow the carb cycling at all as I said. Sunday, I went to the gym in the morning and did a back workout and did some interval running for 20 minutes. Here’s the back workout I did:…

Thursday and Friday

Thursday is not really worth mentioning. Friday was muuuch better. Except for the diet, I didn’t plan for it very well, so therefore I failed. I didn’t have a breakfast prepped so I had a spinach egg white wrap at Starbucks. I also didn’t have the sirloin for the later meal so that didn’t happen….

Wednesday – Another Day of Nothing

Wednesday – I did not workout. I ate my first three meals and then late at night I ate some chicken. My phone broke, I was tired and blah blah blah. Therefore, I went to bed and did not feel bad that I didn’t work out. Bad news, it is now Thursday and I’m still…

Tuesday 4/18 – High Carb Day

Today I got through meals 1-4 of Carb Cycling Day 2, eating broccoli for meal 4. I did zero working out but I did pay my taxes. Booooo.

Monday – High Carb Day

This is the official start day of my diet. High carbs, day 1. I think I’ll try to weigh myself every Monday morning right after I wake up to measure progress. This morning, my weight was at 159.6 lbs, so I’m down about two pounds. Progress! I ate my breakfast once I got to work…
