It's quiet today, the kids are outside playing and hubby and I are just enjoying the quiet.
My day yesterday was good but I did have a lot of internal anxiety and I never could figure out exactly why. I craved eating sweets all morning and afternoon and I felt really out of control for awhile there.
I got up and had breakfast and then hubby and I headed to the gym in the morning. I didn't see anyone from the contest so I wasn't feeling to bad. I did my new leg routine and my cardio on the treadmill. My new leg routine is really short, only took me 45 mins where the other one took about 70 mins. So I'm going to try to add a few more exercises to it so it will be at least as long as the arm workout. It was a good workout though I could really feel it.
I'm struggling a little with the couch to 5k. I'm sure part of it is because I'm jog/walking after my weight training and I'm just tired. But that's how I do my cardio so I think I'm just going to spread it out over more weeks. I think I'm going to go back to 1 min jog/1.5 min walk for another week because I just can't hardly get through the 1.5 jog/2 min walk. You wouldn't think it was much difference but it actually is. Anyway, that's my plan for tomorrow's workout. After the gym we stopped to get the kids a little Valentine's candy and I found myself wanting to pick things I liked. I was really set on eating a bunch of chocolate and crap. I got as far as actually opening the bag of peanut clusters I had picked out when we got back to the van. I kept telling hubby I didn't understand why I was feeling this way. I talked it through and finally closed the bag and put it away.
We went to the grocery after that and I bought myself a bunch of fruit and did end up buying some skinny cow ice cream sandwiches. When I got to the car I opened the sandwiches and had one. Then I came home and had a nice kiwi and made the family some little mini pizzas with turkey pepperoni on whole wheat english muffins, they were yummy and really helped with my cravings. In the evening hubby and I went out. I told him I really just wanted to go to Bob Evan's so I could get something I like but not go crazy with calories. I know it's not the most romantic place for Valentine's Day I told him but he was fine with that lol. When we got there it was full of older people, guess that's where they go for dinner on Valentine's day too lol. But I really enjoyed my dinner of turkey sausage, egg beaters, fresh fruit and whole wheat toast.
After dinner we headed to the movies. We saw "He's Just Not That Into You", what a good movie. I really liked it, very much my type of movie. Hubby liked it too. It was just a good couples movie I thought with so many true points about relationships and how people handle things.
Then we came home and had a drink and .... well you don't need those details *wink wink* lol.
So though my calories were 2525 for the day I thought it was a success when it comes to food. But more important it was just an all around good day because I got in some exercise, made my kids happy, and spent some quality time with hubby.
Today I've been a slug so far lol. I'm working on talking myself into going for a walk. It's 44 degrees outside but it is sunny and pretty so I'm sure I can bundle up and feel good being outside. I'm working on talking myself into it right this minute, can you tell? lol
I have no other plans for myself today other than a little housework, making my protein bars and a nice pot of soup.
