12 days!

I know, it's been twelve days since my last blog. I feel terrible for not keeping everyone up to date. I wouldn't be a very good reporter, huh? LOL

So here's the skinny... I have been having trouble with my diet (meals). With school starting and being busy at work, my hours are all jumbled. And I haven't been going to the groceries regularly. Overall, I'm not eating like I used to before the 5k training, but I'm also not eating as responsibly as I should. The only thing I can do is pick up where I left off. I have been keeping very busy, though.

So I'm still active, walking, and working out. Matter of fact, this morning Manuel and I walked out first three-mile walk. It took us approximately 1 hour and 5 mins. I feel like that's too long, but I'm happy that we did it! BECAUSE, my first 5k is this weekend! Here's the plan for the week...

Monday - walked 3 miles
Tuesday - evening gym workout
Wednesday - morning walk 3 miles
Thursday - evening gym workout
Friday - rest
Saturday - 5k...7 a.m. !!!

I'll try to write more tonight after class. Have a great day!

What wagon?

Hello reader(s)! It's been several days since my last post. Sorry! I was half-hanging off the wagon. I was eating things I should not have been eating, i.e. Chinese food. But I'm still walking and working out. There are no excuses, but I did start back to school this week and work has been busy. So I suppose it was just stress eating. Either way, I'm still dedicated to my goal. I'm back on the wagon and tonight I'll resume my postings.

Hope everyone is having a good day!

Raw Fish?

Yes, I know! I haven't blogged in a few days. I'm terrible. The last couple days of the week were "normal". I'll give you a run down of Saturday.

8:25am - walked two miles in neighborhood

9:40am - gym workout

At the gym I did my usual workout with about the same weights and reps. I did add some weight to the lower back 100lbs. I didn't feel like I was getting anything out of it. So I added some weight, then it felt like I was really using the machine correctly. I also added a new exercise to the workout. The machine for pectorals...if you sit on it opposite, it works the rear deltoids. That one was tough. But I did 3 sets, 10 reps, 24lbs. My muscles are talking to me this morning. I guess that means I had a good workout?

10:50am - steak and eggs with papas rancheras and refried beans (I was hungry!)

2:45pm - baked chicken breast and fruit salad from Bill Millers

7:45pm - Thai Lao Orchid...I tried some different types of sushi (and cooked sushi?)...they were all good...and I had a bowl of their clear noodle soup with chicken...yummy!

Today my goal is to achieve some organization and REST. I start school tomorrow, and unfortunately my Mondays will be LONG! So if I can, I'll have a lazy Sunday. We'll see.

I do, however, miss ice cream. I had a milk shake over the weekend...but I've been thinking about having more ever since. It hasn't gotten to the point where NEED it...or to where I've gone to the store to get it. Too tired to go to store. LOL

Good night!

Friday? It's finally here!

Hello! I finally made it through the end of the week. My walking and workouts have been off this week due to lack of sleep and school. Sheesh! But tomorrow, we're starting bright and early for a walk and maybe the gym. Here's the low down for today...

9:30am - protein shake
1:15pm - poorboy, half bun, lean meat, fruit salad
7:45pm - grilled chicken salad, about a tbsp of ranch dressing, two crackers

So here's the thing. I don't have a real scale. But we do have Wii Fit. On the 10th, this past Sunday, I weighed 256. Today I weigh 254. I supposed if I use my Wii Fit to keep my stats, that would be consistent. Otherwise, maybe over the weekend, I'll buy a scale.

I'll check in with you all again tomorrow! Have a great night! Now that's school's over, I feel re-energized! Yea!
