Well, I forgot to weigh myself at the gym last Friday, so I have no “weight update”. What I do have is an “I ate well all week and I worked out really hard on Tuesday could hardly walk for the next two, rocked it at the gym on Friday then ate like crap all weekend” update.
The week went great. I ate well, drank lots of water, less coffee. Took a new class on Tuesday that totally kicked my butt in the best way possible. It was a good kind of hurt that I experienced for the nest 2 days, not the “I feel like I just gave birth” kind of hurt that the spin class had me feeling. But, after that, I seriously could hardly walk, so the new plan is to to my own work out on Monday, Power class on Tuesday, then cardio and Centergy class on Friday.
I thought I was eating pretty well through the weekend until I logged into myfitnesspal on Saturday night to log my calories for the day and I about fainted when I saw just how many calories made up the Oriental Chicken Salad from Applebee’s. Ho-ly crap people, having that many calories in a SALAD should be illegal…and I only ate half of it. (I shared the other half with the lovely Miss Julia) I’m not kidding, my eyes bugged out of my head when I typed in “.5” of the 1 salad serving and it came back that I had consumed 635 calories. Six-hundred-and-thrty-five. On a half of a salad. That means if I would have eaten the entire thing, that would have been the only thing I could have eaten all day.
Add that to the fact that Rylee and I had an ice cream treat after our hot dog and french fry dinner (for the win…not) and you’ve got a recipe for holy-crap-I need to do some yoga and run around the house for 15 minutes to burn some of this crap off. And yes, that’s what I did. I ran laps in my living room…Ry thought it was hilarious. Oh, and now that I think of it, when I was at my brother’s competition on Saturday I walked up and down the stairs like 6 times because Ry had to “go potty”…only she was kidding. That should count for something, right?
At least Sunday it was nice enough outside that we spent nearly the entire afternoon exploring and digging and chasing. I drank lots of water. Then I ended the weekend with a healthy dinner of roasted chicken, a small portion of mashed red potatoes and lite Ceasar salad. Oh yea…and another bowl of ice cream. FAIL.
So yea…here’s to a new week!
