mars2kids's Journal, 23 August 2013

I looked at my workout calendar last night for Turbo Fire and I have a little more than a week left and my rest days are different, and I tweaked it so today is a rest day instead of Sunday. I have made this 3 month workout almost 5 months, so I need to get better about keeping up with my workouts. I've come up with a calendar for the next 3 months, mixing all my workout DVD's, so we'll see how that goes. I just have to get better about getting those workouts done in the morning.

I didn't do too bad with my eating yesterday. I stayed under my RDI, but I need to get more protein in and less carbs, because a lot of my carbs are junk. So, I'm going to make that my goal for next week. Today is the retirement coffee and dinner for a person at work, so I know I'll have a piece of cake (if I'm not too busy) and I have no idea what the dinner is, but I'm expecting to have a high calorie day. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. I did poorly all week with my eating so I'm going to make myself record everything this weekend, good or bad.

Have a great weekend!!

Mars - if you don't mind me asking, how does a typical workout morning for you? When do you get up, how long do you workout, how much time do you give yourself to get you and kids ready, etc.... Sorry for all the questions. Maybe if I understand how someone else does it, it will help me.

I will get up at 4:45 to 5, and start my workout by 5:15 at the latest and usually workout for about an hour more or less. So, after I'm done working out and showered, usually by about 6:30 to 6:40, then I make sure the kids are up. Luckily my kids are old enough to dress themselves and get their own breakfast, so all I have to do is feed myself and make sure I have everything ready for lunch and snacks at work, and make sure the kids have everything packed for school. I'm usually getting myself ready (hair, make-up, etc.) by around 7, then we're out the door by 7:35 to 7:40 to get them to school. I don't know if this helps, but that is my typical morning routine when I do my workout.

Thanks Mars - that does help me.

It helps me too - I'm in the habit of waking up early - I'm just not as motivated to work out since the first day this week I did... I almost passed out at work at 2 pm. I headed straight for the vending machine and ate chocolate while surfing the web to discover that's the worse thing a person can do to fix the "afternoon slump." I am going to try again this next week and I love your idea of writing a calendar of workouts and cycling your dvds - it's a great idea. I could possibly do the same and put the disc in the night before to save time. Thank you for the inspiration!

I'm glad that helps! Also, for my afternoon crashes where I just want to eat something, I bring carrots and/or greek yogurt. That seems to help me with the munchies and gives me a little boost in the afternoon. Just having those snacks already packed has helped me not to run for the chocolate. :)
