So, this past Saturday, I was a workout FOOL! I had made plans with my friend Anissa to run at 8 am, and I got up to do that...met her and we actually ended up walking. We tried to run at the end, but my Couch25K app was goofing up. So, we ran a little, but not much. That was about an hour. When I got home, I decided to finish up the C25K. I did that, and thought I hadn't had enough, so I put in a Turbo Kick video and did that for an hour. Crazy! I really had to push myself through the Turbo Kick. It was good to test my limits, though! All in all, I worked out for nearly 3 hours!!! Surprisingly enough, I actually felt like going to the pool afterward! My sister-in-law and her kids took off and were at the pool for a few hours. I swam a little...it was nice. I hadn't been in the water ALLL summer! It was great! I think I'm going again this weekend!
Anywho - with all that extra activity, I earned lots of bonus food points. In fact, I earned about 20! I ate them all!! Ridiculous! My nephew kept talking about wanting to go to Coldstone...and even though I LOVE ice cream, I was like, "Oh man." We did go - and I ended getting the "like it" size and ate it with out questioning too much. When I got home later and figured out what I'd eaten.......I'd consumed 13 points with that little cup of ice cream. I mean, hey....it was chocolate & peanut butter ice creams with Reese cups in it....and it was great. Now, I'm not sure it was worth it. I mean, on one hand, I'm thinking that I technically earned these points - and I'm allowed to eat them. You don't HAVE to, though! What if I hadn't? How much MORE weight would I have lost??? *sigh* Also - I totally could've ordered sorbet at Coldstone instead of ice cream. How fun is that, though???? Blah. Oh well, I had fun........and I'm moving on from it. It's a learning process.........or re-learning for me....haha.
I do have that GREAT sore feeling though....I woke up yesterday and my hips hurt! It wasn't a bad hurt, though...it was that good one....like, "I worked out hard..." results kind of pain. I'm excited about pushing forward and accomplishing this goal! :) I think I may have more extreme exercise Saturdays! I liked it! :) I want to achieve it as fast as I can - but I also want to do it in a healthy way! I'm already reaping the benefits. I feel better, I've noticed that I'm walking faster, and I'm sleeping better!!! Good stuff! I can already see little teeny changes in my appearance. That makes ya keep pressing on!
Bring on the skinny girl! :)
