It is pretty exciting, I love it I do want to be careful though, I'm always paranoid I'm going to lose my milk but I'm eating well, drinking well, taking my supplements including extra calcium and I'm not being extreme so I really should be okay - I think it's just my body really responding to the no sugar/pasta/bread stuff.
I worked out at the gym again, 60-65 minutes I'm not sure exactly but deffinatley an hour ~ the stupid machines there make you cool down after 45 minutes, the last time I was there I was able to just keep going but this one shut down and locked up so I had to go to another machine and do another 15+ minutes lol Oh well. I think my legs are going to fall off and die though, and my hips .. oohh I'm sore.
I've also given in to one thing during phase one, I love my protien shake and since I think it's safe for even this phase I'm drinking it after my workouts, well I HATE the taste without some frozen strawberries, so I'm adding 2 to 3 - not many so I don't think this sorta cheating will really affect my weight loss. But ya know, I had to "confess" my one cheat
Mama to 7 curious, wild & wonderful little ones ♥
Wow you're doing great!!! WTG on your treadmill time I wouldn't even worry about the shakes. With the exercise you're getting it's going to be fine!!
Awww bad girl Chimmy having strawberries! (Just kidding, lol) Considering how much you are working out I don't think it will matter. WTG on the treadmill time!
lol Dawn - I really was bad today!
I tried to post this earlier, but it wouldn't go through - not sure if it was PO or my laptop and my desktop has a trojan virus that were trying to get off. Anyhow - will update later but here's my earlier entry.
Yea, I figured it wasn't really a bad cheat lol And thanks guys, it feels SO good and I love that I can watch movies while working out
I need to start adding some upper body exercises, but I have to do it in the light! LOL There's something nice about working out in the dark ha ha
Anyhow - just finished giving my sister a massage, she's 25wks pg and it's so cute to see her growing belly - I just love pg mama's there's a wonderful air about them.
I need to go through my cookbooks to see what I'm doing for Valentines dinner. I have the makings for a London Broil so maybe I'll do that, with some oven roasted veggies & a side salad to start - that sounds good. And then Jello or a sugar free ice cream treat as a treat for us - the boys will have some chocolate hearts from us and a little present.
I'll probably have to go the gym late tonight, since I'd like to be home for dinner & have Seamus down to bed - so 8 to 9 most likely. That's okay though it'll make for a good sleep!
I also weighed in this morning - I love being able to weigh in once a day, if I lose it modivates me, if I gain it modviates me and if I stay the same it still modviates me lol so it works! Anyhow I'm down .2oz
So dh got me something beautiful for Valentines day, in place of chocolate lol bless his heart. I want to take a picture and share, but my desktop computer has a virus so I can't make the picture smaller, my laptop only has paint - so hopefully tomorrow I can share it with you!!!
I also exercised for 90 minutes today, the reason I decided to was because I'd been slightly naughty and wanted to work off the extra calories lol It felt GREAT to do - and while I'm sore I'm not as sore as I was last night and I only did 60 minutes. I think it's just my body adjusting though.
So I was really excited when I got home, feeling good and accomplished but now I'm worried and I hate that, I'm bleeding again, mid-cycle & I don't want to go to my midwife, one reason is vein I KNOW it is but the other is because I'm affraid it's going to be something bad Either way, I think it's time I make that phone call, so tomorrow I will.
Other than that today's been awsome, GREAT workout, a bit of cheating but hay it's v-day! and a beatiful present from my sweetie - what more could I ask for
Great workout, Julia! I'm sorry about the mid-cycle stuff. That must be so worrisome. Hopefully it's nothing but you should go in just to be sure
I'm glad you had a great Valentine's Day!
Great job working working out! Can't wait to see a pic of your gift
Sorry about the midcycle thing. Give your midwife a call! I think knowing the truth is almost always better than that crazy worst case scenarios we come up with in our heads.
Were still working on our computer. I would really like to kick whomever made this silly virus - why do ppl do such mean things. I will hopefully get a picture up tomorrow
I didn't call my midwife today, I know I know. Maybe tomorrow. I really am thinking it's either a prog. or cyst thing, or maybe it really is just my body reacting to the exercise and change in diet.
I only worked out 30 minutes today. Note to self: Don't wear thin ankle socks lol My poor ankles and toes are all blistered. I really wanted to do an hour but I knew if I did I wouldn't be able to workout tmorrow, beecause my feet would be blistered and torn up. I worked hard for that half hour though, so I got in as good a workout as possible & I feel good.
Speaking of working out, I have a few goals:
[*]I would like to learn more about separated ab muscles, mine were really seperated after carrying the twins and I need to put them back together & strengthen them.
[*]Once I understand seperated ab muscle better, I'm going to find some good workouts to help them.
[*]Figure out how to use the machines at the gym, and come up with some circuit workouts for my upper and lower body.
[*]I would really like to get to the point where I can walk at 4.0 mph w/out having to hold onto the sides lol And then eventually run.
I know, lots of goals - not something I expect to get done in a short amount of time, but build up to them. My stomach is probably my worst body spot and the one area that I'd REALLY like to work, and get flat again.
