Action Hero Workout



You've got goals and they aren't going to be reached with chocolate, soda and chips.

So now you know how my weekend went. I did do my 6 miles on Sunday and mostly running. Go me!!

Today Charlotte announced that the new experiment is
the action hero workout. Since I passes along the link I could hardly pass up the opportunity to participate. Tried one rep of each circuit tonight just to get a feel for it. Hard workout. But i have a few concerns about a couple of the exercises. Could definitely feel my knees twinging up. Going to take those exercises easily until I see how it goes.

Decided on a new goal today. I have a work outfit that I would love to wear comfortably this summer but the skirt is definitely not comfortable. I can zip it but it sits way higher than it should. If I get on the ball and figure out how to post a photo I'll take a before pic a la Glam

Clean Saturday

homemade bran muffin
fruit (from a can but packed in water)
egg with whole wheat toast
apple with peanut butter
chicken casserole with tostitos sprinkled on top

then there was the incident with the min caramel filled cofee cakes at the grocery store. DD has gymnastics in the morning and we stopped to get groceries on the way home. I was starving and got pulled in. EEEEP!!! The tostitos weren't the cleanest but they were the multi grain ones and dinner filled me enough that I didn't need an evening snack.

Workout was just walking. I had a twinging back muscle that was quite painful when running so I just walked 45 minutes.

Weigh in day

Down 2.2 pounds!!!!!! Gotta say I was kind of surprised by this given that I was PMSing this week and ate a lot of salty stuff (and sweet stuff). Plus I didn't do my workout last night. DD threw a major tantrum yesterday morning to the effect that we couldn't get her out the door. So DH stayed home with her and went in to work immediately when I got home. I was wiped by the time she went to bed.

Foodwise today: Don't even ask. A complete wash.

My challenge for the weekend is to eat as clean as possible. I feel so much better when I do but struggle to remember that when being stared down by a chocolate bar or KFC.

Not the best, not the worst

That is how my day was. I'm lacking sticktoitiveness. Think I need some extra motivation. Gonna start posting my daily eating plans in the hopes that the thought of having to write it out here for all to see will keep me from eating a jumbo caramilk bar at 10 am.
