Day 134

Posted by iwanttodothat on January 11, 2010

Okay, so readers like the food journal and the pictures. I will be back on track with that tomorrow, I swear!

Today, I got a seriously late start. I started cleaning out my closet, and so far, I have 2 bags of clothes that are going to Goodwill. I’m not even close to being done, either. After the clothes, I’m going through the yarn. There is a lot of it! Maybe I will finally knit myself a sweater next winter because it will be a much smaller project!!! LOL!

I didn’t calibrate my Nike+ today, but I did map out a 3-mile course on Google Maps that will be a nice change from my current route.

Today’s food so far:

2 fat-free Yoplait yogurts
1 clementine
1 Special K bar
2 slices whole wheat bread with mustard and 4oz chicken breast

The rest of the day’s plans:

Snack: 2 scoops EAS protein powder

Dinner: 2 scoops EAS protein powder (I know. Don’t feel like eating after fencing tonight. Better than nothing.)


Tonight, I have fencing, and I’m having a hard time getting pumped about going. I am still a beginner, and it’s just soooo difficult at my weight (at ANY weight, really, but especially at nearly 300 lbs). I missed last week due to a rehearsal one night, and being at Disney on the other night. So, I’m starting off the new year by missing a week of fencing. This is a recurring psychological theme in my life that I have to get over. Just because I miss 1-2 times, it is not the end of the world! In the music world (I’m a trained professional musician), you are trained to NOT miss anything. I’ve been in so many musical situations where if you are late, you’re fired, if you miss, you’re fired. Any infraction, and you’re fired or kicked out. I need to remember that fencing is for fun! A hobby! I go when I go, and enjoy it. It’s not a gig!

With all that in mind, I think I can do it!

Day 133

Posted by iwanttodothat on January 10, 2010

It’s really flippin’ cold in Tampa today. I went to the YMCA for a Salsa dance class (please stop laughing now.) There was a substitute teacher, so I don’t think it was exactly what it usually is. There was a mix of salsa, zumba, belly dancing, and stretching. I definitely got in my cardio for the day. Just to make sure, I hopped on the elliptical after class for 10 minutes to work my legs.

I’m on track with my calories today, but not the greatest eating plan.  I’m drinking tons of water, too. Tuesday is a weigh-in, and in order to make my 10 pound/month goal, I need to see some progress.

Tomorrow, I’m planning to finally calibrate my Nike+ system after I outline some distances on Google Maps tonight. I need a change up in my route, because, frankly, I’m sick of doing the same old lap. I also need to make some serious plans regarding swimming and biking, now that I’m signed up for 2 mini-triathlons this Spring. What was I thinking? How am I going to work this in to my current training plan?

I also need to figure out a better way to blog my food diary. First, does anyone care about all of that? I know that when I do detailed recording of my food, I lose weight, so there’s my answer, I guess.

So far today, and I’m being brutally honest here, I’ve eaten:

1 KIND sesame & peanut bar
1 KIND almond & apricot yogurt bar
1 banana
1 slice sourdough 5-grain bread
3 pieces of cheese ravioli
1 Mix1 key lime protein shake

I’m planning to eat:

1 baked potato
1c homemade chili (no beans)
6oz fatfree Yoplait yogurt

Not great, not terrible.
