Jan 24 – Exercise Journal

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

This morning I did the FIRM’s Time Crunch Workout. I was looking forward to a total body, heavy weight workout, but unfortunately I didn’t like this one. Maybe I was expecting too much from it, but I didn’t finish the workout feeling very satisfied. I didn’t get my heart rate up like I wanted to and most of the upper body work seemed to center around the shoulders. I wanted to work the triceps and biceps. No lying chest work. No leg presses either. I spent 45 minutes on this workout and only burned 221 calories. Oh well. I plan to run tonight after work, so I have that to look forward to.

EVENING UPDATE: Checking back in this evening with 3 miles ran on the treadmill.  That gives me an additional 385 calories burned.  I previewed my workout for tomorrow while I ran.  I will just sum it by saying, “Owe!”

Jan 23 – Food Journal

So, my second work out of the day was a no show. I still had a great burn this morning, so I am not going to complain. My arms might next time I have a heavy weight workout with the upper body though, lol.

On to the food journal…

Whole Wheat Pancakes 5 pts
Sugar Free Pancake Syrup 0.5 pts
1 cup grapes 1 pt
Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella Stick 1 pt
6 inch Subway Turkey Sub with Cheese 5 pts
6 Potato Chips 1.5 pts
2 Pepperidge Farm Cookies 3 pts
Kashi Honey Almond Crunch Granola Bar 2 pts
1 cup cherries 1 pt
1 1/2 servings Easy Chicken Tetrazzini 8 pts
1 WW Giant Fudge Bar 1 pt
Hershey 100 Calorie Chocolate Covered Pretzels 2 pts
Whole Wheat Matzo Board with All Natural Jam 1.5 pts
1 cup cherries 1 pt
Provided I didn’t miss anything in copying my menu over that should be 34.5 pts. 4 of those points can be swapped for Activity Points, which still brings me over my 6.5 pts. :/ I didn’t feel like I ate that much food. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

Today my rotation called for Tracie Long Training: Better Burn Better Buns and The FIRM’s Jiggle Free Arms. I am checking in so far today with TLT:BBBB done. This was my first time doing this workout and I really enjoyed the challenge. I have finished every TLT workout so far looking forward to the next time I do it so that I can challenge myself even more. I burned 370 calories with this workout. I plan to do JFArms this evening after NCIS. I will check back in when it is done.

My weight loss has stalled and basically gone into reverse. To help keep myself going and keep myself honest with myself I am going to start posting Exercise and Food Journals in my blog. They are thusly categorized as Daily Journals – Exercise and Daily Journals – Food.

And it is called having my old webspace restored so that I can get my old blogs back. Yay! I was afraid it was going to cost a fortune, but it only looks like it is going to be about $25. I can totally live with that to have the 2 missing years of my life back. 😀
