Workouts and Food

It’s almost weigh-in day, and I’m nervous because of my food choices over the weekend.  I made better choices than I have in years past, but I still ate things that weren’t healthy so it won’t be a surprise if I don’t see a loss.

Since coming home I have eaten more vegetables and protein, and I have continued doing intense workouts that include cardio and strength training.  I feel like I’m in control of my workouts and my food now so I hope to see some positive losses in the weeks to come. I’d like to see the scale move down at least a tad, but I know that I need to be more focused on healthy food choices regardless.

I trained with Ron today, and I was exhausted when we finished.  I don’t typically nap, but I strongly considered it around 7 pm.  I laid on my sofa as I talked on the phone and fought drowsiness, but in the end I didn’t sleep.  Instead, I did a few things around the house, then headed up to the gym for workout #2.

After an exhausting and session with my trainer, I felt motivated to go again (by someone I know who has been doing two-a-days lately) so I did it too.  I did cardio circuits for 45 minutes tonight, and I can safely say that I burned over 1,000 calories again yesterday.

I’m exhausted, and I’m ready for a solid night of sleep.  What happens on the scale will happen, but I’m going to keep working hard and reminding myself that it’s easier to skip unhealthy foods than it is to work them off.  I have trained hard today and tracked everything I ate.  I’m going to focus on making food choices that enhance the work I’m doing in the gym and continue to stay in control.

What are you doing to be healthy today?

      It’s not the norm for me, but I’m always impressed when I hear that someone is doing it regularly. I should try to commit to doing it more often. It felt great!

    Love what you said about easier to skip unhealthy foods than it is to work them off. That is an awesome statement. And two work outs in one day–even more awesome..
    Thanks for a great post!!

      Haha…Now I’m curious how far I could stretch if I were pushing it a little. I didn’t consider that. Ha

    I know they generally say one should weight once a week, but if that is creating anxiety about the weigh in it is counterproductive. I weigh and take body fat measurements every day. It has become a habit. It also helps to keep me in line. I use a 7 day moving average to track my progress since daily measurements can be volatile.

      A seven day moving average sounds like it could be a great idea.

    Thanks for the post, love reading it.

    My family and I went for a walk and played at the park, chasing after an almost 2 year old while also trying to keep her from getting hit in the head with a baseball or bat or tball stand is pretty exhausting!
