Gym Day 2
Sorry for the blurry pick. I was moving and am not sure what the gym’s policy is on taking photos, so was in a hurry.
I was tired today and a bit sore from yesterday’s workout. Today I had planned to take a Yoga class and a weight training class. However my back hurt bad. Instead I opted for cardio.
I got on the treadmill and had it in my mind I would walk at a good steady pace on a 2 incline for 10 minutes. My legs got tired at 5 minutes and I was thinking the elliptical sounded much better. However, at 10 minutes I really got into a good pace and even opted to run on and off. I stayed on for 30 minutes and went over 2 miles. It is a good first start.
Then I was going to go swim in the pool, but when I got out there they had swim lessons. I sat in the hot tub for at least a half an hour, it felt so good. Later I drank a lot of water to replenish.
I am not doing the best workouts of my life, but it is a start. I am trying to ease into it gently as I know I am good at pushing myself once I get a good routine going.
Tomorrow I am going to do the Yoga. I really want to try and do Yoga at least twice a week.
Accountability: Not doing so well with tracking food on Sparkspeople. The idea is great and they make it so easy. I have an app on my phone and if I ate mostly the same thing every day I could sort it by groups.
Breakfast I ate coffee and a peanut butter and honey sandwich (don’t judge.)
Lunch: homemade hummus w/ whole grain crackers and a plum.
Dinner: Taco Salad: Turkey meat, multiple types of lettuce (including arugula,) salsa, cheese (small pinch,) refried beans, green onions, and radishes…..Oh, and a side dish of green beans and leeks sauteed in olive oil.
Looking at it all, I think I am okay calorie wise, but am just too tired to plug it all in….tired from the gym. I want to think in a month this will get easier, but I will be going to school and there will be no easy.
Really, it is easier to track foods if you eat processed foods and can say, “I ate 3 cookies.” When you cook most dinners from scratch it is hard to then go back and write it all down (or enter it in.) Maybe this is lazy.
