After complaining yesterday about the crappy weather here it warmed up today and was beautiful. Sunny and +23. It’s probably the nicest day we’ve had so far this year and it doesn’t seem to stop. Tomorrow it suppose to be +28 and on Thursday +24. Tough to complain about that.
Also, remember I said I only had today and a 1/2 day next week and then I was done for the year. Again, not true. I finished my day of teaching today but now I have a full day Friday but off on Monday. Looking forward to be on summer vacation at the end of the week.
Finally, yesterday when I mentioned that I had been rocking the gym lately. That part is very true but what else is true is that my eating has been horrible lately. I’ve only been cooking at home 2-3 times a week and food lately has consisted of eating at restaurants with friends, fast food, Thai, Chinese and Subway (I know not that bad but not good for my bank account either). This has been going on for the past 3-4 weeks and I really need to kick these habits.
Even with this crappy eating I’ve been able to lose about 7 lbs over the past 3 weeks or so from all the trips to the gym. Can you imagine how it would go if I could clean up my eating?
My plan is pretty simple. Start cooking at home. When I cook at home I’m much more likely to eat better and healthier. I really enjoy cooking but I’ve just been so busy lately I haven’t made it a priority and that needs to change. I’ll try to start blogging more meals and hopefully that will help to keep me on track.
Right now my gym routine has looked like this:
- Monday – weights in the morning, run on the track with the husband in the evening.
- Tuesday – cardio in the morning
- Wednesday – weights in the morning, run on the track with the husband in the evening
- Thursday – cardio in the morning
- Friday – cardio (usually running intervals on the treadmill) and weights
- Saturday – run or swim or rest day depending on other plans
- Sunday – hour of tennis with the husband in the morning
I also started back at yoga last week. So far I went Thursday and Friday last week and today. I also plan on going tomorrow and Thursday. Once teaching is done this week my plan is to go either Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday or Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’ll have to see once I get into a routine.
I’m really happy to be back at yoga but I forgot how hard it is and how much work it actually is.
Don’t get me wrong – I love it but my body is paying for not doing it for the last 8 months. As I sit here typing this post my legs are reeling from my class a couple of hours ago.
