My Workout #5 - 1/3/12
3. January 2012
Today was a good day although a little difficult. It was my first day back to school since break ended, so I’ve been awake for a while now. It’s harder to eat well because I’m in a hurry throughout the day but you can still say I managed. For breakfast I had a small bowl of cereal. For lunch I took a power bar and a clementine. I knew I was still kind of hungry so I bought a small bag of salted peanuts and ate them through my next class. After school, I went and worked out. First I did the elliptical for 2 miles straight and as fast as I could. I worked up a good sweat and my heart beat was up there. Then I got off of the elliptical and walked to do some pull-ups and dips (I need to keep my arm muscle). Then I came back to the cardio area and got on the treadmill. I walked for the first minute, then I jogged for 5 minutes, I took a 2 minute break at a walk, and then I jogged for 2 more minutes, and of course cooled down for like 45 seconds (That’s what the treadmill made me do for a cool-down). So I jogged for 7 minutes. That’s good for me, I didn’t even think I would make it past 3 minutes. I’m slowly getting better.
We went out to eat after that and I got a chicken sandwich thing. It was grilled chicken strips wrapped in a pita with lettuce and mayonnaise. I ate like 3/4 of it. Then I went to Broomball practice. Broomball is why I need to keep my arm strength. The practice wasn’t vigorous exercise or anything, but I did work up a sweat.
Now I’m home and I was so Hungry! So I ate a really small bowl of cereal…
It was a pretty good day.
Call me crazy, It already seems like I look a little smaller! I feel like I’m in a lot better shape than when I started…it’s only been like a week!? Maybe it’s because I’ve never really pushed my body like this. Oh well, I feel good and that’s all that matters.
OH YEAH :( I did eat 2 cookies today, one small sugar cookie and a regular size chocolate chip cookie. I’m making a lifestyle change, and I’m not going to go the rest of my life without cookies :)
I have a lot more to talk about, but I’m going to save that for another time.
How was your workout today?
