It's all coming back to me now...
okay first things first.
really good with the calories today..
Ever since I instituted my 'no sugar in the coffee' rule..I use splenda
A.) I have been less hungry.
B.) I have saved a buttload of calories which I can now apply to food.
C.) I haven't missed it..and that is really key.
I wish I 'd done it sooner.
So I went to the gym..I think I've said before I should just live there...lol.
And I worked out..
Today was 1mile walk, 1mile jog, 1 mile walk, 1mile jog jog....
So I go in and start with the pushups...today I squeezed out 23.
That was good.
Then I did my situps..
now let me just say...a half hour before going to work out..I did NOT want to work out.
no compunction whatsoever..but when i get like this I say to myself.
'That is how olympic athletes do it, they do it...like breathing.'
It's not optional.
So I go.
I am in training.
So I did 60 situps of varying kinds.
AFter i completed my 23 pushups.
If I do my sit ups first, it makes the pushups harder.
Then I go and walk a mile and then jog a mile.
I jog to boys of summer by Don Henley.
For some reason it is the perfect pace for me.
Plus it reminds me of Tigers baseball and Detroit.
after my first 1/1 I go down and do upper body weights..
lat pulls (3x15 @ 60 lbs)...triceps...(3x15@55lbs) lower back extensions (3x15@ 55 lbs)
and flys (3x15 @ 55 lbs)
These were hard because of the pushups.
on my second 1/1 the run was hard because I was tired..but I pushed through..and as I got through my last lap I remembered something.
I remembered how we 'improved our push-up'
We would go to muscle failure.
So I decide to go down after my workout and do push-ups till I face plant into the matt.
I do 10 and face plant into the mat...
I do four more and face plant.
3 more...and this time I face plant into a little pile of drool.
which causes me to begin laughing uncontrollably.
2 more and then one final humiliating pushup while grunting and nearly peeing myself....
after which I couldn't lift my arms above my head for the next hour or so..
tomorrow is simply elliptical day so I will burn calories and rest my arms...but will still do the 120 situps.
In the mornings I seem to be weighing in at 145...and at night 145.5.
Which is awesome.
As for hunger...up till yesterday I was really hungry all.day.long.
But it's better now.
I had a 6 inch black forest ham sandwich from subway with sour cream and chive baked lays and a diet coke.
It was an awesome dinner and I ate it in under 10 minutes. lol.
I am sitting at 1470 for the day...YAY!
So, on track..
I will try to be more philosophical tomorrow.
