Wow, I'm really overwhelmed (in the good sense) by all the comments y'all leave for me here! Thank you so much. It means and helps a whole lot. Thank you.Today's exercise:
Stairclimber: 22 minutes. Set on the interval setting, so speed varied from 45-65 steps/minute, I believe. Avg. steps/minute=51. 68 floors. I realized today that I actually hate the stairclimber. It's no fun, it hurts my knees, and my toes are constantly getting squished between the steps. Ugh.
Elliptical (glider): 65 minutes. Started on resistance level 4 and increased it in increments of 4 every 10 minutes, then back down. 4, 8, 12, 16, 12, 8, 4 (last 5 min.). It was tough to get through it today! That was the longest and hardest I've pushed myself on that machine.
Treadmill: 35 minutes. Nice, fairly casual walk at incline level 1.0, 3.5 mph. Distance=2 miles.Food:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with blueberries and chia seeds. Also a Vega WFHO shake.
Lunch: Leftover kale/tempeh/bean salad from last night (had half before my workout and half after)
Dinner: Green curry tempeh with mushrooms and spinach, served over quinoa/brown rice blend.(I don't normally eat so much tempeh.)
I might as well 'fess up to the fact that my diet fell way short today. Actually, it wasn't bad all day... until I came home this evening. I got a little out of hand (and by "a little", I mean "a lot") with the snacking. Part of the problem was that I made my roommate and I dinner, but he came home late, and I was hungry. Rather than eating my dinner without him, I just started snacking. But, then I kept on snacking, and it really just got out of hand from there. I'm embarassed to admit that, but that's the truth, and I might as well be honest here. I went a little nuts (and by "a little", I mean...). Emotional eater, plus I just started my period (sorry to you men who may be reading this, but we're all adults here). and that makes always me a little crazy ("a little"?).
I'm so mad at myself! Grrr....
Looking ahead, I'm anxious to do Week 1, Run 2 of the C-2-5K program tomorrow. @Greenbride, I'm using the iPhone app, too! Love it!
