Day 136

Posted by iwanttodothat on January 13, 2010


9:30 Woke up, took meds, drank water, stretched.

10:45 Breakfast. 1 banana, 1c roasted red pepper and tomato soup (Pacific foods soups are incredibly delicious and worth the price!)


1:00 Lunch. Chick-fil-A Southwest Chargrilled Salad, no dressing. Coke Zero. (TIP: Do not use any regular dressing. Read the labels! At Chick-fil-A, the clear winners in the condiment category are the Buffalo Sauce and Light Italian dressing. You can practically dump these on your food with no ill caloric effects. The Buffalo Sauce tastes good on salad!)

3:00 Snack. 1/2c fat-free cottage cheese, 1/2c frozen blueberries.

5:30 Dinner. Rotisserie chicken breast (no skin), 2c steamed broccoli. For my family, I’m adding roast red potatoes to this meal.

9:00 Snack. Some sort of recovery protein beverage for post-workout.

I am also packing an apple in my purse, just in case I have to eat something while I’m out. An apple isn’t going to do any damage.

I’m planning to get in my cardio tonight on my way home from rehearsal. It’s not ideal, but it won’t be taking away from family time. I also need to start figuring out how to run on the treadmill. This is something I’m not particularly excited about.

Day 81

Posted by iwanttodothat on November 19, 2009


7:15 Woke up, took meds, stretched, got ready for personal training.

8:00 Personal training. New personal best on 1-mile run/walk… 16:24!!! I smashed my last time by a full minute! Was subjected to cruel and unusual punishment for the remaining 40 minutes.

9:00 Breakfast. Smoothie by Maggie.

11:15 Snack. 1/2c fat-free cottage cheese, 1/2c frozen blueberries.

1:30 Lunch. Chick-fil-A. Grilled chicken and fruit salad.

4:30 Snack. 2 stalks celery, 2 wedges Laughing Cow Light Swiss cheese.

6:30 Snack. 1 Yoplait Light yogurt.

7:00 Exercise. Fencing. I had my first official fencing lesson tonight. I was so excited that I had to lie down at 5:30-6:00 to get myself under control. I got to the rec center and was given a glove and a foil. Coach Terry got her hands on me and gave me the 411. I learned what to practice for the next week and half until we meet again after Thanksgiving week. For my own note taking purposes, I will list it here.

  • “En garde” position. Feet at a 90 degree angle, shoulder-width apart, in an “L” shape, knees bent, back straight, shoulders relaxed, R elbow about 1 hand-length from torso, foil grip tucked into wrist, thumb at 12 o’clock, blade tip aimed at opponent’s eyes, L arm bent in a right angle, hand relaxed, low center of gravity.
  • Advance. Short steps, knees bent, pick feet up, R foot heel first, move L foot forward quickly, head shouldn’t “bob”… smooth movement.
  • Retreat. Short steps, knees bent, pick feet up, ┬ásame principles as Advance, but in reverse.
  • Lunge. Extend blade arm, use back leg to push body forward, L hand should drop backward to help with balance.
  • Recovery from lunge. Return to “en garde” position with blade extended, then bring it back.
  • Basic drill. Start “en garde”, 1-extend, 2-lunge, 3-recover, 4-retract blade. I know there is some other name for 3 and 4, but I can’t think of it right now.
  • Point drills. Find a point and hit the target with tip of blade ┬áby extension.
  • “6” position is defending my right side
  • “4” position is defending my left side

I think that’s probably enough to keep me busy for about six months! The maestro gave me a foil and glove to borrow until next time! Woohoo!

10:00 Dinner. 4oz salmon, 4c mixed baby greens, 1c broccoli, o&v.

7:00 Woke up, took meds, stretched, got ready for training.

8:00 Personal training with Maggie. Ran nearly half of the time of my cardio walk, but am still not cutting time like I should be. It’s frustrating me! The rest of the hour was focused on triceps and legwork. I won’t be able to move tomorrow.

5:00 Exercise. Walk/run for 30+ minutes. Lots of running in there, and it was 80+ degrees. Bleh. The kids were with me on their bikes. One is ready for BMX tracks (the 10 year old) and the 5-year old is trying to keep up and get over training wheels. Needless to say, I outwalked/outran the two of them the whole time. In fact, I would get so far ahead, then run back to encourage the little one. I put him on the road instead of the sidewalk and I could actually run next to him, and we were at the same pace! Yes! I’m doing physical activities with my kids… outside! We’re having fun together doing things!!! This is one of my goals: Family exercise/sports!!! Awesome!

6:15 Snack. 1 EAS Myoplex banana cream shake.

9:30 Snack. 1c plain nonfat yogurt, 1/2c blueberries.



Snack, Day 59



I was so dang tired that after choir practice, I just skipped dinner right to my late snack. I wasn’t hungry and I need to sleep a lot tonight. Aunt Flo is here, too. Yay. Did I mention that I have a weigh-in tomorrow morning and training? Double yay.
