I’m not going to say I fell off the wagon this week, but I did kind of.
My cheat day Saturday found me eating ice cream with peanut butter and Reeses mixed in. Other than toast for breakfast that was the only thing I ate that isn’t allowed during the week. For some reason I wasn’t craving anything I’m not allowed to eat (no bread, no potatoes, no rice, no pasta, no fruit- NO. NO. NO.). Go figure, right?
Sunday I broke in my new xc skis and made it about 45 minutes. That’s a great workout people. I’m not gonna lie. I also really enjoyed it. And was sore the next day. On my excursion I was accompanied by the dogs and even my cat, Sookie! She’s crazy folks! Zach said there was no way I’d make it 20 minutes. Guess I proved him wrong.
Monday I made it about 10 minutes skiing. It was SO cold that day. And I was sore from the day before so I skipped my UFC workout on the kinect. I slacked, I know.
Tuesday I didn’t eat well. I had Cheerios for breakfast. I had to get to town and well, to be honest, cold cereal is way faster than cooking myself eggs. And it requires less clean-up too. Lunch was a Caprese salad with steak, and supper was, also, steak. Again, I skipped out on my workout.
Wednesday I did a major ab workout thanks to the UFC trainer. Seriously people, they like to punish your core.
Yesterday it was legs and even though I did multiple sets of side lunges, side lunges with a hold, lunges with a twist, squats and squats with a hold, I’m not sore this morning. I think my legs are starting to come back to me!
Today is upper body.
Beginning weight 1/6- 144.6
Weight on 1/18- 142.2
On an unrelated, (or is it?), I do believe I’ll be going to get my thyroid tested very soon (lucky for me there’s a doctor in the family!). I’ve hit the magic number 35 when they want you start getting tested, and frankly I’m experiencing both hypo and hyper thyroid symptoms. This past week my hair and skin have suddenly become oily – despite never in my life having had oily hair or skin, and up until this past week my hair could only be described as brittle and, dry (also not my normal hair). It has certainly been tangling more easily and has been coming out in chunks occasionally. The 25 lbs I put on really only occurred since last June, despite my running, losing a few lbs, going on a clean diet for 8 weeks, gaining some back, losing it again. I’ve been suffering from hyperhydrosis for the past year too. TMI? Sorry! I swear I sound like an unhealthy, old woman! And, maybe this is too much to confess, but I figure I should be honest about where I am, especially if it will help someone else.
