My abs are KILLING me today from the Wii Fit yesterday! I guess it did what it should do - I have a feeling it was the hula-hooping game. My sides hurt the most, and that's probably a good thing! I'm going to do it again tomorrow, that's for sure.
It was ridiculously cold this morning (the news said it would get down to like 7 degrees), so Stacey & I planned to workout indoors on our own. Instead I bundled up and went for a run anyway. I was so proud of myself! It was damn cold, but I really layered up - I figured if our 5k in 2 weeks is a cold day, then I'd better get used to it! It was a bit slippery in areas, and kind of difficult to get through the areas where the snow wasn't shoveled, but I totally did it, and felt great afterward. *Self high five / self chest bump!
That was a big first for me (jogging when the weather isn't perfect), and I'm so glad I did it. Also, a sunrise over everything blanketed in snow? Beautiful!
Juice: Apple, 1/2 a lemon, 1/2 an orange, celery, 2 carrots, 1/4 a yam
1 egg over-easy with tomato, siryacha sauce, and 2 slices of polenta (about 1/3" thick)
Brown rice, black eyed peas, onions & green peppers (lightly sauteed), red pepper, arugula, tomatoes, 1/2 a can of organic vegetarian chili.
1/4 a cup of pecans.
2 beers (at Denver Beer Company)
1 small plate of Thanksgiving leftovers.
22 minute jog in the bitter cold!
Also, they say that you should use a picture of YOURSELF when you were in better shape / weighed less as a motivational tool. A while ago I got down to 138 pounds, and could wear anything I wanted to! You can see a picture of myself at that time here (in my first post on this blog).
Again, I was not as healthy as I could have been (I was eating ONLY meat & veggies - no carbs or fruit), and I was a smoker. But if I can get there once, I can do it again!
One small step at a time...
