I am finally back at 218. Now it is time to work on getting lower. My birthday is on Sunday (32 already!?) and my goal is to not gain over the weekend. I have been doing well, shakes for breakfast, omelettes for lunch and meat and veggies for dinner. My sweet tooth is still here, but I think that I am going to buy some Skinny Cow desserts to have at night when the sugar beast comes a knocking. At least then I would feel too guilty if I am eating a 100-200 calorie snack. I go back to work in less than two weeks and I would like to be 5 pounds down by Aug. 20. That would put me at 213.
I have Ultimate Frisbee again tonight, woo hoo! I have been getting my one hour of cardio a day in, but my heart is not into it. Maybe when I get back to work I will have a little more drive. They are having an Olympic competition at the gym for the month of August. Basically you need to do 8 workouts in each of the following categories: boxing, athletics, gymnastics, cycling, rowing and weightlifting. Each cardio box-esque class that you take counts are 1 boxing workout. For athletics, you have to do 30 minutes on a cardio machine. Zumba, pilates and yoga classes count as gymnastics, 30 minutes on a bike or spinning class, count as cycling. 15 minutes on the rowing machine will get you a rowing exercise. Lastly, 30 minutes of weight training will count as weightlifting. You can do more than one category in a day (ex. cycling and gymnastics), but you cannot do 2 of the same in one day (ex. if you do 1 hour on the treadmill, you will only get one ticket). I have been participating and I am having fun, it forces me to try classes that I usually would not. Feel free to do something similar, it really is fun.
What am I going to do when the Olympics are over? I am going to have so many hours of TV free...LOL
