So yesterday I had a great and busy day. For food I had Egg white on english muffin with turkey sausage for breakfast, 260 calories, with my coffee. At lunch I had 1 cup of beef stew, home made and tasty! I had some celery and cucumber slices on the side. Lunch was 332 calories. Dinner was a turkey sandwich on the run and then I had a snack later which I'll explain in a minute. My total calories were over by 100 cals yesterday.
Here's why: So yesterday I went to Tae Kwon Do class at noon. It was quite a workout! We did all the usual stuff plus extra since the test was to be the next day. I happily got my invitation to test for my orange belt. Knowing that I had to test today, I arranged with my husband to watch kids so I could attend an extra class to be sure I knew the material. That's right peoples I did TWO classes in ONE day. This means that I did a total of 150 crunches, 40 push ups and a WHOLE lot of other cardio and work. I burned over 1600 calories. So needless to say when I got home from class I was pooped and hungry. I ate a banana and some peanut butter with crackers. That's what shoved me over the 100 cal.
Fluid wise I drank a TON yesterday, but I woke up WAY dry, so not enough. I had 176 oz of water, 16oz coffee, 12oz diet dp. It just amazes me how much better you feel when you drink the water like you should.
So.......on to today. WHAT a busy one! Woke up early and did some work and got busy with the morning. Breakfast was egg white sandwich on wheat toast. I mixed salsa and canadian bacon into them this time before cooking it and it was really good. Like a quicko omelet. My son thought it was way awesome. That with my coffee and breakfast was 220 calories. At lunch I had to run home and switch cars with husband so he could pick up kids from school. I had a turkey sandwich on wheat and a banana. Lunch was 363 calories.
Work was CRAZY. Flu is definitely here, bad. Lots of sickness out there people. Beware. Cover your cough and WASH wash wash your hands! Rushed home and changed clothes for the TKD belt test. It is amazing how incredibly nervous you can get for these things. I had planned time at lunch to practice, but work did not allow that. Luckily I got home in time to review the few things I wanted to. But, time was short so I ate another sandwich. Luckily I had reduced cal bread. Dinner was 229 calories. I planned a snack for after the test. My total calories were 1110. I drank 1.5 gallons of water alone today and I'm not done. I'll need a little more before bed.
My mistake was not eating a little more before the test because I came home and I was shaky. Had a total nose dive on the blood sugar I suppose, which isn't a problem for me usually. I ate some grapes and an apple and I feel better now.
So the test went well. I got my orange belt!
|Me Trying to break a REALLY thick board.|
My only regret is I didn't manage to break the board. It isn't a requirement, but I really wanted to do it. Not everyone did so I wasn't alone. Of course they gave me this HUGE board. That's OK. I'll get another chance when I get my green belt because I'm not giving up and I'm not quitting. This is WAY too much fun and such a great work out!
So the plan for the weekend includes a trip to San Antonio for a wedding. My husband and I are driving there and back, just staying tomorrow night. This would worry me except that I don't know these people, they are friends of my husband so no one wants to look like a pig in front of strangers, Ha ha. I'll tank up on water before and eat a snack. I plan to walk in the morning and we'll do walking there. I see a loss coming on the scale, at least I hope so I do NOT want to screw it up.
Good night all I am POOPED! Have a great weekend!
