New ‘Workouts’ Section, 9.5 miles, Shooting Range Fail and Wine Night!

Um… have I told you lately how AWESOME you are?! Thanks SO MUCH for the great feedback, advice and overall support in my last post. I have SO many good ideas now! I copied/pasted your comments and am working on an action plan (you know – that’s how I do fo sho!) On another note, my weight was back down to 118 today. WTF? Whatevs – I still need to make changes and, thanks to you, I have some great ideas of where to start!

K – backing up – Tuesday was pretty blah. I felt crabby, didn’t want to be in the office, super “snacky” – ew. During lunch I walked 3.5 miles (burned 260 miles), but after work I was like no mas and headed straight home. Just watched some TV, had pizza worked on next week’s meal plans and developed some new workouts for this week! (back/biceps workout and Legs workout).

Back and Bicep workout for HOME (if you have dumbbells/ball)

Leg Workout for HOME (if you have ball)

Pizza... veggie pizza.... YUM!

Speaking of (workouts, not pizza) – check the top navigation! I reorganized and added a Workouts section! I’ll post all of my workouts there for those of you who have said you’re using them/printing them/etc. – fun! I ended Tuesday high… I think it was self-pity eating. Sad! I ended up at 1,847 calories, 234 carbs, 40 fat grams and 89 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. Too much candy… again. Moving on!

Yesterday was a great day! I got lots of work done, walked 4 miles during lunch, worked some more, then did another 2 miles. I believe someone asked in a previous post (sorry for not answering sooner!) – I do walk with co-workers! Usually I walk with my co-workers Stacy or Sue (or both!). Sometimes that pesky job thing gets in the way and I have to walk alone (cue Green Day), but usually I can avoid walking solo – except on Wednesdays when they work from home. Anywho! Sue came over and we walked 2 miles together, then we were off to meet Stacy at the shooting range. Yes, you read that right. Sue got a gun for her birthday and invited me and Stacy to an indoor shooting range. I was SO excited! But leave it to Atlanta traffic to hold us up causing us to miss the last shooting slot, so we did what anyone would do when when gun shooting is off the menu, went wine drinking! We headed to Smyrna West Village to McCray’s Tavern and had wine. Too much wine. But that’s okay – GREAT conversation – nice to chill with co-workers/friends who REALLY know what you go through 40 hours a week ya know? I got home and watched Modern Family with Austin and Reuben then passed out, ending the day at 1,795 calories, 174 carbs, 50 fat grams and 102 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. I burned 418 calories (6 miles at 4 mph) so not too bad, right?!

Today is pretty chill. Just worked, finished the meal plan/watched TV during lunch, and now i'm contemplating doing the back/biceps workout and some abs. We'll see! No walking today though - need a break. Especially since I have 4 down for tomorrow and some on Saturday! What are you guys doing this weekend? We're heading to Birmingham to see Austin's parents, shop with his mom, go to his youngest brother's high school football game - all of that good stuff! I'm mucho excited. Reuben will be staying in ATL with his mimzy - I think they're TOTALLY obsessed with each other! (in a good way of course - love it!) We're so lucky to have my mom!

K - i'm out... by the way, before I leave tomorrow my department as a team building. Viking Olympics from 12:30 - 4 p.m., followed by drinks. Hmmm. This isn't going to be bode well for me pre-car drive! eek!

Candy is a weakness for me too, even now! But like you, I just watch it and keep working out.

Great workouts by the way.

I know you will have a great visit to Birmingham.

I think I would chose wine over shopping range any day. :-)

Your veggie pizza looks good!

Erica said...

I think its fabulous that you walk with your coworkers. Must be fun to get some good chatting time in ;)Hooray for the wine ;)

Ive always wanted to try shooting. Will you try to make it back there sometime?
Its a bit difficult to go to a range in Australia. You have to have a licence, plus belong to a gun club and jump through a lot of hoops before you can!

Thanks for the comment! Looks like you had an awesome workout! I like how you track your miles walked... I'm going to copy that! Where do you get your strength exercises online?

Pam said...

Now I am craving veggie pizza.

Mica said...

Yay, veggie pizza! We were totally on the same wavelength this week.

Yay vacation for you and for Reuben!

Just catching up with you! When I was in CA, I went to Old Navy on the hunt for those cute dresses you bought, and I couldn't find them! :( Bummer. Anyway, I am so inspired by your walking habit. I really, really need to get into it.

Sorry you didn't get to go to the shooting range! However, drinking wine is always a good time:)
