Yesterday was a great day. For a Monday. I sure am busy at the office right now. Good news/bad news there I guess. That's how it is this time of year. Hectic, busy, overbooked. And flu hasn't even arrived here yet. Usually it hits around here in January, just about the time kids return to school from the holidays.
I'm still rockin along with the SDDDY challenge. The water is fabulous. Really I am so used to it now that when I don't get it all in (like today, I'm behind.) I feel like crap. And I'm not peeing as much as I was at first so I guess my body is adjusting as expected.
Yesterday, I did well with my food. Really well I thought. I had Egg whites and a bagel thin for breakfast. For lunch I had low fat Progresso tomato basil soup. It's pretty yummy. Especially for 200 calories for the whole can! For dinner I had a huge salad, some broccoli and 2 small lobster ravioli. Total calories was 1251. I drank 128oz of water.
I didn't work out yesterday. My legs needed to rest from the 5K on Sunday. Instead of a workout, I practiced some on my TKD. I had thought I might workout at lunch, but ended up working through. Yeah. we're busy. Last night I crashed early. I was asleep before 10pm which hardly ever happens, but I guess I was still tired from the busy weekend.
Today was a great day, but super busy. The office was hopping. The phone won't stop ringing which is great, but annoying sometimes. At lunch I changed into my TKD stuff and rushed out to class. As usual the workout was hard. Really hard. We did a lot of practice today as I plan to test on Friday for my yellow belt test. I figure I burned at least 700 calories in that 1 hour. Yeah, my legs are sore now from all the kicking.
As a side note....I cannot believe how much I sweat. Good lord, I could float a small boat. I think maybe I'm drinking so much water it just oozes out my pores. I thought that the more I work out and the thinner I get that the sweat would decrease. Doesn't seem to be getting any better. The good news is my sweat doesn't stink. No seriously, it doesn't. I've asked. But I'm just drenched-hair, neck, chest. Pretty much everywhere. Which is OK except that sometimes people actually have to touch me during class and ewww...it's yucky.
Does anyone else have this problem?
Today I took along my fitness warrior towel I bought from Bobbie at Anonymous Fat Girl. It helped and I plan to never go to TKD without it again. She wants pictures of people with their gear so I'll get someone to take one sometime soon. And of course I'll have to show pics when I get my new belt.
Today I ate egg whites and bagel thin for breakfast. Since I had to rush home from TKD and shower and change into dress clothes for my business meeting tonight, I didn't have much time for lunch. I ate 2 string cheese, an apple, a banana and 6 crackers for lunch so I could eat it while driving back to the office for yet another meeting. Dinner tonight was 1cup of pasta with marinara and some broccoli. Total calories for today was 1255.
I didn't drink enough today. Oh not for the challenge. I beat that amount. But, I guess the exercise and all the sweating put me behind in the fluids. I've had nearly 64 oz this evening and haven't peed that much. The more I drink, the more I need. Can you be addicted to water? Is there a water addict anonymous I can join? I just can't figure out how much is too much. When will I find the right balance? I know it depends on your activity level, sodium intake and a whole bunch of other factors. I just know I drink so much that I can't believe I still feel thirsty. But, on the bright side, my body feels better, I'm not hungry and Allan can't give me shit for not following the rules.
Oh and here's an NSV for you. The other day I went to pick up the kids from their TKD class. I stood at the large window watching them finish class. Across the classroom the whole wall is covered with mirrors. I saw my reflection and thought, "who's that lady? " Then I kind of shook myself and realized it was me I saw. I looked so much smaller I didn't recognize me. I guess from that distance I could see my whole reflection and with the other people in the room I could get a perspective on what I look like compared to other people and I don't look that horribly big anymore. I'm still big mind you, but less. I guess I hadn't been able to see what others see. It was cool. Weird but cool.
And now I'm pooped again so off to bed. Good night all!
