Exercise:

  • Reilly Walk
  • 50 Push ups
  • 50 situps

Basically the only thing I’m succeeding at this TBT is my 50 push ups and 50 sit ups a day.  Yesterday was “Bread Day” and there was homemade bread in the room where we had our Department Chair meeting.  I dramatically turned my back to it and ate none, despite the delicious smelling cream cheese covered bagel the woman sitting next to me was eating.  I indulged only in some extra coffee.  I starved all the way till lunch, despite being busy and my snack.

I had a huge lunch.  Then I came upstairs and jammed on my protein bar and snuck across the hall for a piece of bread with a bit of cream cheese and stole a handful of Dove chocolates.  *sigh.*

Made a huge smoothie disaster for dinner.  (I never use enough fluid and the stupid things won’t blend and I find that irritating.  Highly irritating.)  It tasted great, btw.  Went home, jammed on handfuls of yogurt pretzels and a glass of wine.

Today is Parent-Teacher conferences, so I will indulge in an Italian Dinner provided by our parents, and I don’t even feel bad.  Tomorrow, there are no classes at the gym I can go to.  I will walk Reilly, do my push/sit ups, and… I dunno.  I need to do some kind of at home workout, the trouble is I suck at those.  I have Sunny’s Frida Awesome Jammer workout.  I could do that…  we’ll see.

After tonight, Basketball is over for me, Conferences are out of the way, I should be able to get back to my routine.

Food: way over yet again.  fuuuuck.

  • 6″ turkey on wheat from subway, w/ swiss cheese, honey mustard, and all of the veggies
  • Yoplait Greek w/ fruit and granola, apple

Exercise:

  • 50 toe push ups
  • 50 crunches (25 regular, 25 cobra)
  • short Reilly walk
  • Spin Class

I was exhausted at work today.  Falling asleep in a 7:15am meeting, falling asleep at lunch.  I left early and passed out the second I got home.  Okay, that’s a lie.  First I stuffed my face with not one, but two energy bites (at 270 calories a piece.  yikes!  better than a peanut butter cookie, I guess… I dunno.)  Funny–I had been chatting w/ Die on facebook, and she teased me just as I fell into the sleep of the dead.  I think she thought I was offended when I hadn’t responded.  Haha.  Oops.

Spin class.  My legs hurt and felt like lead, but…  I’m wondering if my exhaustion and overeating are the result of seasonal depression (or any kind of depression) so I figured Spin Class would make me feel better.  The only exercise I’ve had since last Tuesday has been derby, which is not as…  relaxing?  calming?  I dunno.  as regular exercise.  At Spin class, I’m just “Lindsay,” andI can turn my brain off and just go, you know? And when it’s over I feel that good exhaustion and a sort of relief of having let go of my stress, etc.  So–despite being exhausted, I went.  I *think* that was a good decision.  I seem to be in a more positive mood.  Tired, but positive.  For now.  😉

Took a nice, super hot epsom salt bath when I got home.  Mmmm…  With wine, of course. Feeling pretty good, now.  I do want some pie, though.  (Un)Fortunately, I don’t have any.  😦  Sad day.
