I did not realize how small my screen shot of my food diary was until I posted. I am sure you all used a magnifying glass though, because it’s just that important to see what I ate yesterday! I was under a few calories, but I am sure the handful of Pizza Supreme Dorito’s I ate ( not that good) made up for it. Matt and I have to try every new flavor of Dorito’s that comes out. It’s like a law or something. Yesterday went pretty well I think. It was a normal day of activity for me so I think my calorie intake and burn was adequate. Today might be a different story. I have about 9 miles planned to run later this evening. I am nervous. I have not done a tempo workout OFF of the treadmill this year. This will be my first attempt. I need to mentally prepare for it now and also get a great playlist ready! I know I can do it, I just worry about my breathing-which will only make it worse ( anxiety and stress is a HUGE trigger for the breathing flare ups– so lame). I also have my first race this weekend!! I can’t believe I have not been talking about it. Oh wait, I do know. It’s a 5k and I am not too fond of those anymore. (The whole breathing crap), but I will just go out and run and have fun. Ha.
I am also teaching 2 classes before I run. Depending on what I decode to instruct, I might not be too involved with these classes today. My first class will be getting their BIA’s ( Bioelectical Impedance Analysis– in a nutshell it is a body fat % test) done. There are over 20 of them so it might take up a fair amount of time. If there is enough time left we will do a bit of kick boxing, but it’s hard to predict how much time we will have.
My next class will be Cardio Sculpt. I change it up every week and last week was a lot of cardio, so this week might be more strength training with some cardio bursts involved. The strength training segments will get the heart rates up as well. I know we will incorporate some squat presses and lunges with biceps curls to get the most bang for our buck to burn lots of calories. I have a pretty busy day ahead of me and we are out of toilet paper. How does that even happen….. Off to the store! 🙂
How are you keeping active today?
