Well that sucked

Here we are at Monday again. It just keeps coming around, doesn't it?
I went to the gym this morning. I did 20 minutes on the bike, the weight machines (I increased all the weights by 5-10 lbs), and 12 minutes on the elliptical thingy (the ones I like were taken so I had to use one of the others which claimed I burned fewer calories but I was sweating harder so I'm not sure I believe it).

This was breakfast. The Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Cereal looks suspiciously like cat food. It tastes a little better than I imagine cat food must taste. I will finish the box but I'm not sure I will buy it again. At only 120 calories for the 3/4 cup serving I guess I can't complain. Also some turkey because I am trying to have protein with eat meal. Breakfast (w/milk on cereal) came in just over 200 calories.
Lunch will likely be a salad. Dinner is too far off to think about quite yet.
The weekend was a wash out exercise wise. I didn't make it to the gym. I did take a walk with my kiddos on Saturday. Sunday I did a little gardening.
Monday. I said Monday would be weigh-in day - Mondays already suck anyway, right? Well, today's weigh in was ugly - +3. I don't know how - I'm eating less and moving more than I was just 2 weeks ago. But while it is discouraging, it reminds me why I don't own a scale. I can't let a number derail my efforts. I know I am retaining some water (being a girl sucks sometimes) and I also know that if I stick with this, I will be healthier. So, onward.

  1. I like the blog title! I read your old posts from 2009 regarding the 30 Day Shred and I sympathize! I just started Level II. I only do it once a week, but I also do pure strength training twice a week. Once a week is not too bad. I'm thinking of adding a second day. I really like getting in a quick but hard workout. There is no way I would want to do the 30 Day Shred every day. I am a firm believer in having adequate rest days. Good luck with your fitness goals.
