I worked out a lot today. First I did a Step Class, and I sweated a lot. I also managed to keep up with the choreography too, I really like this class for the cardio that I get out of it.
Then I had an hour and a half before Body Pump, so I read more of The Thrive Diet. I'm enjoying it a lot, and learning a bunch too. I also had a banana inbetween classes, and a lot of water.
I went up in weights for a few things in Body Pump. I upped the warmup weight to 10 lbs each side, instead of 7.5. Squats are the same, so is chest,and back. Triceps are up to 20 lbs, and everything else is the same. I feel good, and I know that because of Body Pump I am getting stronger.

!0:00am organic coffee & a vegan cinnamon bun at Dandelion Tea

I need to get back on track, this week I've been packing, and I have had no time to prepare any food in the kitchen. I am so sick of eating badly, all I want is a nice big salad. It is so nice that I actually crave food that is good for me instead of junk food. It's going to take some getting used to living with my brother and his 2 daughters, they are not vegan. I'll just have to have my own cupboard and part of the fridge for my food, I intend to start the Thrive Diet, or at least add a ton of foods from it.

5:00pm half a Clif builders bar
7:45pm vegan steak strips, brown rice, and italian beans

I was at my brothers all afternoon, and there was nothing to eat. I finished my Clif bar before I worked out so I would have something in me. It seems we will be moving into the 3 bedroom on Wednesday so I'm hoping that I will be able to concentrate more on what I eat once we've moved. Besides more salads, vegetables, and fruit I would also like to add quinoa, flax, and maybe some lentils to my diet. I guess this means I will have to be in the kitchen more, it'll definitely be worth it though since I'll be eating better.

I had a great workout today, well almost every time I workout it's great. Anyway I did Muscle Toning, and we did some cardio on the track which included deep lunges touching the ground, squats,skipping,and high knees jogging. With the weights we started with light. I used 6 pound weights and we did a lot of shoulders, and some triceps, then medium were 8 and we did more shoulders, rows, some chest, and biceps, squats, and my heavy weights were 12 pounds, and we did more shoulder raises, lateral raises, bicep curls, chest, rows, and tricep extensions. I think that about covers it for the class. Then I ran with the lady that does the running group, and did 3 miles. She says I am getting better, and I guess she knows what she's talking about as she's been running for 20 years.

It was a lot of fun to do kickboxing again. I've only missed 2 weeks of doing it 1 day a week, but I felt it in the class today. Although I do a lot of strength traing and cardio workouts kickboxing is a bit different. My arms are a lot stronger due to Body Pump, and same for my legs, but my kicks and punches tired me out quite a lot today. I am still a little sore from my workout on Tuesday, I think it's from the squats that we did outside on the track, I guess I'm going deeper than I used too. Anyway I can feel that I am progressing which is my overall goal so that's good. Today I am still moving stuff to the new place, but hopefully will take a break to go back to the gym, and do latin cardio. I wonder how my legs will feel tomorrow. I was going to run tonight, but I plan on perhaps doing a free weights workout tomorrow,(not legs) and will probably just run tomorrow instead.
I took a break from moving stuff and went to latin cardio. I sort of wish I hadn't because they filmed the class, this is like the 3rd time they've filmed this class, and I'm always in the front and I can't dance very well so it can be embarassing. Oh well I think the majority of the class have 2 left feet too, so I wasn't the only one that made a fool of themselves!

I am going to move my computer later today, and I don't know when I'll get the internet hooked up, I hope it'll be Monday at the latest, but I don''t know. So I probably won't be posting again unitl next week. Maybe I'll write everything down so I don''t forget. Later!

It's been a crazy weekend. Every day I moved lots of furniture, but I still managed to get to the gym and do some weight training. I didn't have any internet access over the weekend, but they hooked us up today. I'm glad I didn't have to wait any longer. Like I said it was very hectic these past few days, so I was in no way concentrating on what I was eating. I didn''t eat junk, but I didn''t eat frequently, and it wasn't always the best choice. When I move again I am hiring someone!

Today I got back to a somewhat normal routine. I walked to the gym after work and took muscle toning. The room that most of the classes are in is getting refinished so we were in part of the gymnasium. It smelled a bit weird, like chemicals, so we worked outside on the track. There were lots of squats,and running up and down the hill. We also did bicep curls, lateral raises, lunges, skipping around the track,rows,shoulder raises, cheerleaders (overhead presses with palms facing each other).Then we went back inside and worked chest,hamstrings,glutes, and abs. Then I ran for 3 miles. Of course when I was running a lady from the class honked her horn at me, so I waved, and tripped and fell. But I wasn''t hurt at all so I continued running. Aside fromall the bruises I received moving furniture, and boxes, now I have scraped knees too. I won't be able to wear shorts for a month because people will think I was thrown down a flight of stairs. It seems to me that this was an accident prone day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Monday: Oatmeal w/banana & coffee, burritos,vegan chocolate chip cookie, vegan turkey sandwich on pita bread w/spinach, carrots,
Tuesay: oatmeal, coffee, rest of my cashew chicken,banana,vegan sausages in whole wheat pita wrap w/lettuce, some canned fruit in natural juice

Workouts for past few days, besides the workout I got from moving these past 6 days
Saturday:Cardio Strength, I don't remember what I did, but I needed the break from everything else
Sunday:Step, and BodyPump
Monday:Missed the BodyPump class due to my soon to be ex sister- inlaw, she had to get her stuff from my brothers place, and it took way too long

Ok, my computer has been acting up, and it only took me 3 days to figure it out. I had to put the correct date, because after I hooked it up it said it was January 2007, and that's probably why I haven't been able to view my posts that were in December 2007! I am not a computer genius obviously lol.

Anyway I have been a bit off this week with my workouts, haven't had much energy. I think all the moving I did finally caught up to me. And maybe after I fell my body may have been telling me to rest a bit. Yester day I took a Body Pump class but like I said didn''t have much energy, and was a bit sore from tripping on Tuesday.I was mad at myself cause I had to stop a few times, when we were doing chest. I think the trainer knew something was off, of course all she had to do was look at my legs to see all my bruises. I had to wear shorts, because my workout pants ripped when I fell.

Today I got up early, had a cup of organic coffee, ok I had 2, and visited with my Mom for a bit. It seems now that we're all living together I see her less. Then I went to the gym, and did kickboxing.We didn't use wraps, or gloves, but it was a tough class. We used jump ropes, which I hate, did lots of pushups, including tricep pushups, did lots of punching, and kicking moves, and abs. I still wasn''t 100% but did ok. Then after work I walked to the gym,and read the Thrive book for 2 hours before I took Latin Cardio. I thought I might run, but my ankle is still a little sore. So tomorrow I will take a rest day, and hopefully by Saturday I will feel up to running again. I hate it when something comes up keeping me from my usual workouts, but I'm not going to "not" listen to what my body is telling me. And when I spoke to the running trainer she didn't think missing a week of running (last week) would set me back at all, since I still did a lot of other stuff. I just hope my time gets faster, I feel as slow as a turtle right now.

Friday was a rest day, and I felt a lot better today because of it. My workout got changed because I got to the gym after the class started. So I ended up working out by myself. I did chest, and back, it wasn't the most awesome workout, but it felt good.
warm up on the Precor for 10 minutes
Benchpress: 15 reps 15 pound db (flat bench)
bent over rows: 15 reps 15lb db
benchpress:12 reps 20lb db (flat bench)
bent over rows: 15 reps 15 lb db
bench press 12 reps 20 lb db (flat bench)
bent over rows 12 reps 15 lb db
chest flys palms out 12 reps 12lb db 3 sets
seated row: I think it was about 40 lbs 3 sets
deadlifts 20 lb db 12 reps 3 sets
chest flys with palms facing each other 12 reps 12 lb db
abs and stretching
I haven't been eating as well this week, and I think that may be the main reason I haven't been up to running. Whatever it takes I plan to run tomorrow before BodyPump!
