Skipping Zumba - W10.D4

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

I took today off work. I could NOT get out of bed...honestly. I was so ill. I'm pretty darn sure it was the nasty Mexican place. I got chicken fajitas, so I was a good girl...but still. Something in my stomach did not like me...and I'm blaming the fajitas. So I called off work. :/

But then...the day actually turned out wonderful. Our Satellite is back up after weeks of no TV. Then Hubs and I went down to the little store down the road and found they put in a slushie machine. Don't worry, I didn't get one...but I did take a sip of Hubby's. I got the boys each one. Then we took them to the carnival where Hubs and I walked around for about an hour. Then grocery shopping for some much needed supplies. Checked in on the garden and found a huge zucchini, which I immediately cut up half of and put into dinner. (Ground chicken ON SUPER SALE!, onion, garlic, zucchini, tomato, some great Olive Oil from Australia and some whole wheat bowtie pasta. YUM!

So while I did miss Zumba, and I didn't really officially work out (YET!), I got to spend a wonderful afternoon/evening with my boys...which I haven't really gotten to do except here and there on the weekends. Also got a call from work telling us that the Governor gave us all Friday off for Senator Byrd's public funeral. Because I work 4-10s, I don't normally work on Fridays anyways...so my work decided the 4-10ers had to put in 32 hours like everyone else and then could be off. Since I got those 2 hours of overtime in on Sunday, I don't even have to go to work tomorrow. That means I had today off, and I don't have to go to work again until Tuesday! (We get Monday off already for 4th of July holiday.) These are the only bonuses to working a state job.

I'll try to get some strength training in tonight. I don't know that I can do much more. I feel better but I felt so out of it all day.

Another NSV? We went to Wendy's tonight. I got a chicken sandwich planning to eat that for dinner and nothing else. (I had the calories to spare so it was fine.) But then we got the chicken sandwich and they had added cheese and bacon. Instead of just eating it I turned it down and came home and made a fresh dinner. I'm so proud of myself for that!
FFIC Day 6 (Tuesday)

* Workout/Fitness Minutes - 3 (30m circuit training, 20m Yoga)
* Calorie Counts - 3 YAY!
* Strength Train - 12

* Beauty Reminder - 3

Yesterday I realized I have the most amazing shoulders right now! I showed Hubs today and he said, "Wow! Yeah! Those are HUGE!" (But I knew from the way he said it that he meant it in the good way. *lol*) Also realized that my pants no longer fit. About 10 more pounds and they will literally fall down over my hips! *lol* I have a picture from way before...when I was much bigger...when they fit perfectly...maybe even a tiny bit tight. And then I took a pic yesterday....SUCH a difference!

* Brain Challenge - 2 (for an AB Brainstorm challenge...these are hard for me...)

* Read - 5 (finished it today! *lol*)

* Stretch and Breathe - 0 NOPE! *sigh*

EDIT: 2 bonus points for trying a new exercise, food, or soul-enriching activity, as long as you report on it! (Share the love, baby!)

I did my own circuit training yesterday. I made up my own routine in my office with the dance channel on Pandora. SO much fun!!

I also tried pull-ups from a seated position. It's ....interesting...but I could feel it was working. I used the corner of my desk and did a sort of pull-up/crunch.


(Didn't do quite as well today...but that's alright. I had a GREAT last day of June!)
