I decided to sort of document what I’ve done in terms of workouts and meals (well, dinners) each week to prove to myself that I actually haven’t turned into the world’s biggest sloth.
Monday – Lunchtime gym workout. I did a Kayla Itsines arms & abs workout. There were a lot of burpees. Actually, maybe I did this at home in the morning? I can’t remember anymore. All I know is that I wrote down arms & abs (burpees). For dinner, Jason made a vegetarian chili with soy crumbles. Even though I will eat ground turkey or chicken now, sometimes I get a little meated out and want something that’s not [real] meat.
Tuesday – Lunchtime run. I’ve been doing the Couch to 10K program. I did Week 4, Day 3, which sounds like I’m actually following through with something, but really I start over on Week 4, Day 1 all the freakin’ time. Dinner was leftover chili.
Wednesday – More Kayla Itsines at lunch. This workout was abs and cardio. The cardio was stuff like…burpees. So many burpees. And snap jumps. Which are kind of the same thing as burpees. This workout felt easier than Monday’s though. I forgot a towel and couldn’t shower afterward. Sorry, co-workers. Dinner was kind of a cluster because it was supposed to be enchilada rice, but when I picked up Alexander from daycare, I found out that he decided to skip his nap. A 19 month old cannot function properly without a nap. Hell, I can barely function properly without one. He was a fussy mess when we got home and refused to eat much of anything because he was too busy screaming, so I ate some of his mac and cheese and some salad. And then later I ate an ice cream sandwich and half a Clif bar that’s been in the cabinet for 6 months. Umm yeah.
Thursday – I actually got up early to run. I recently changed my work hours from 9-6 to 8:30-5:30 so running in the morning now means that I have to get up an extra half hour earlier than I was having to get up before. I hate it, but it does make me feel sort of badass after. I did C210K, Week 5, Day 1 which was basically 5 minute run, 3 minute walk intervals. Dinner was the enchilada rice which I tried to make healthier by adding less cheese and no olives. No olives really because I only had whole olives and didn’t feel like cutting them, but it does cut down on the calories too.
