Sorry I didn't post yesterday, but here's my workout for Sunday!

1pm: Step class 55 minutes
3pm: new Body Pump release with three very enthusiastic instructors leading the class
The class was packed about 40 people, but I was still able to have my usual extra weights. Not too sore today, but I'm kind of dreading how I'll feel tomorrow! :D

Yesterday I had a banana smoothie in the morning, then before my workout I had an apple, and in-between workouts I had a fruit bar by Barbara's. Then ended up at the mall, and ate at the food court, an indian place called Spice, had chana masala, which is basically chick peas, and rice in a small amount of tomato sauce. later on I had a bowl of peanut butter cereal by Barbara's and soy milk.

No luck on the apartment hunt, and no time to spare either!

Monday I went to a 45 minute Spin class, led by the insane head coach of the Central Florida Triathlete Club which supposedly is the most structured Tri club in the Nation. When you get a workout from Hector you will understand why I completely agree with what he says. He is very disciplined when it comes to exercise, and expects the same from each athlete, or average person dumn enough to take his spin class and think they can get away with not putting every last ounce of themselves into the workout. So it is understandable that after 45 minutes of his Spin class I felt like throwing up, but no I didn't. My shirt was completely soaked through, and I looked like I'd been working out for hours.

Here is my post with yesterdays workout. I want to get credit for posting about different workouts, so tha'ts why they aren't in the same post.

Tuesday- Step workout 55 minutes long- 530-630pm

The day did not end the way I wanted, and I was not a happy camper!
Here's what happened. I thought I had a ride home from the gym, but that fell through, so in order to get back to the house at a decent hour I had to skip my Body Pump class. So I leave the gym right after Step, and get my first bus to the Downtown station which is only about 2 miles away. I had about a 45 minute wait, not too bad, but the bus never came. The bus had broken down and for whatever reason there was no replacement coming to get us. So besides finding out that I could have stayed for both workouts after all, I got to wait at the crummy bus station at night for almost nearly 2 hours. Then I got back at 10 minutes to 10pm. But I did get in one workout at least, and my first math class of the semester wasn't as bad as I thought. Those were the only ups of the day.

Wednesday- Today was a rest day, after 6 days of not missing the gym.
Tomorrow I have a math class after half a day at work, then I am hitting the gym, not quite sure what I'm doing, but at least now that its in this blog I have to commit!

Today I was quite busy! Worked half a shift, went to math class, then made it back to the Y for a Step/strength workout. I left my lunch in the fridge at work so i didn't eat all day either. The workout wasn't too hard but I had no energy and was famished so it still seemed like an intense workout. I also rode the bus for about 4.5 hours today, so I'm beat.

Friday- Today was another day off from the gym, but tomorrow mornin g I may go to a beginner yoga class to get all stretched out.

I am doing my best to not get stressed out about my life but right now I am frazzled to say the least.So for the time being I am just taking it one day at a time, and doing my best

I recently found out about an internship through my church in Boston this Summer and I may apply. This would of course set me back getting my degree, but I just can't stop thinking it may be exactly what I need. And if I spend almost 2 months in Boston I should be able to figure out if I really want to move there.

Saturday: I woke up at 620 am and I just could not get up, so I slept in and had the best sl;eep I've had in a month probably, and didn't get up until a little after 9 in the morning.

So I didn't get to yoga, but I did get some cardio in by walking to all my bus stops, while carrying a heavy bag too. for breakfast I had a banana milk shake, with soy milk of course,
Lunch was at the mall I ate a falalafel platter with hummus, tabouleh, and falafel and flat bread.
Then I ruined my diet by eating a vegan chocolate bar when I went to see Sherlock Holmes with some friends.
For dinner I had an Amy's Asian stir fry meal, and water. Oh and I also had a cup of organic coffee during the day. I know my diet is terrible. :shock:

Today I also slept in, but only missed church, not the gym!
I ate brunch at Etho's, which was too too much! Ended up getting their biscuits and gravy, and coffee, and my mistake was I also got a cinnamon roll which really didn't settle well in my stomach, not sure why. Maybe I'm not having as much sugar as I thought I was.

So after my two buses to the gym I took Step at 1pm. It was awesome, and I always feel better after talking to my friend that instructs the class. Not sure why he just puts things into perspective for me. Then at 3pm we did Body Pump, and I went as heavy as I usually do. My heaviest weight was squats when I used a 45 pound barbell. The heaviest I've ever gone for squats in Body Pump was 55 a few times, so I'm working my way back up to it. Chest and back were 25, and 30lbs. So I feel like I had a decent workout today. :D

Walking to gym in an hour and 20 minutes for a 45 minute Spin class, and possibly a cardio strength class, if I survive Spin.

Tonight I worked out at an intensity I didn't know I had in me! First I took a 45 minute Spin class, and then I hobbled into a 55 minute cardio strength class. Lets just say I looked quite funny. My legs wouldn't let me jump very high, and I could barely get through the jumping jacks for the warmup in cardio strength. Here I thought the tri club coach was a hard Spin instructor, but my friend can teach one hell of a Spin class even though he's not into Spinning. Back to the workout,the 2nd class was part cardio with jumps, and plyometrics, and the other parts were strength using a barbell, and free weights. I guess due to the lactic acid build up from Spin my legs were not listening to what I wanted to do. I stayed for the entire class though, and tomorrow I am just going to do Step, but not Body Pump. Since I don't have the time to run outside in the morning I want to do as many cardio workouts at the gym as possible, and for me I get pushed that much harder when its a group exercise class. I know the results are happening, I just wish I could see them already!

Today I was a crazy lunatic trying to get to my workout in time. Let me explain. I got to the bus station, and the bus hadn't come by 510pm, my workout started at 530pm, so I decided not to continue waiting for the bus, so I power walked very fast to the gym. About half way there I realized my actions were a little bizarre, since it was only one Step workout, and only 55 minutes long, so if I missed 10 minutes I was only getting a 45 minute cardio workout. But I decided not to listen to that voice that said I was acting crazy, and I got to the gym right after the warm-up was over. So I in fact probably had 2 workouts tonight, power walking in like 15 minutes to the gym, and my 50 minute Step workout.

I am sure when I show up for Spin tomorrow the instructor will just shake his head and mention something about recovery. I was planning on tomorrow being a rest day, but I will not be able to get to the YMCA Thursday, or Friday, so I have to go tomorrow. My quads are not happy, and I am sure they will tell me all about it tomorrow!

Wednesday: Spin class 45 minutes, also not the instructor i thought it would be so I didn't get kicked out, lol.
I was tired though, and not too motivated but I did at least get in another 45 minute cardio session. Today, and tomorrow I am using for rest days. Will do my best to not eat badly too. Wish my weight would start going down. I'm feeling more toned but the scale hates me! Off to math class! :roll:
