Busy Tuesday……. Bring it.

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!  🙂

More bang for your buck: biceps, hamstrings, quads, core and calves!

How are you keeping active today?

Fit Tip:  You should take in 18 grams of protein 20 minutes before a strength training workout to boost your caloric burn.  source:  Michigan State University ( so proceed at your own risk- Go BLUE!)  😉
