Ok, so I don't have any specific goals although losing 20 lbs (I am 5'7" and 160lbs, was about 154 before I started weight training about 3xweek, not sure if that is coincidence or muscle
) seems like a good goal, as does feeling strong. I have never quite lost my baby weight, though I feel healthier and am more comfortable with my body than I ever was before I had kids. I will also keep my food log here because normally I write it down, but sometimes it is faster to type than to write. Thanks for reading and any and all comments/suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.
Candy's chickpea flour "omelette" (OMG so delicious!! Thank you Candy!) w/ bell peppers, spinach, garlic, and tofu.
green smoothie- 2 pears, kale, mint, water + ice= 1 quart of deliciousness.
Japanese food- brown rice, seasoned seaweed, edamame
afternoon- bell peppers w/ edamame hummus
post workout- protein shake (almond milk, hemp protein, raw cacao, ice)WORKOUT: total- 1 hour
15 minutes treadmill
15 minutes of a cardio machine that I can't remember the name of- but LOVED, tried for the first time tonight and I am totally hooked... a cross(?) anyone know?? Kind of like eliptical but not really... got me sweating, that's for sure!
3(sets)X20(reps) of each of the following, at various weights (none above 75lbs):
seated leg curls
Today was a good day, the only thing I would say is that I ate a little too much... I probably could have done without dinner as I was still full from my green smoothie and snacking on hummus. Great workout, I went to the gym for yoga but the instructor didn't show (boo for flaky gym instructors!), but I am kind of glad because I really liked that new cardio machine I tried. It's always fun to try new things and find out you really like something, right??
