I don’t know what happened.  I ate my snack too early?  I had strawberries and clementines instead of my apple?  I was hungry all morning.  I thought since the strawberries and clementines were individuals I could trick my tummy into thinking I’d eaten more than I really had…  Nope.  I even ate my energy bites early (w/ my snack) instead of saving them for after lunch.  The result: maybe just one Dove chocolate after lunch… or 10.  Seriously.  1 became 10.  Sad Day.

Then for dinner.  Had my salad and was full-ish, but was heading to Spin Class, so decided to add a protein bar to ensure I had enough energy to get me through the class.  Bad idea.  I was a ‘lil bloated…  plus when I came home from class, I had the psychological need to eat…  so I ate snap peas while making lunches…  and snuck an energy bite into my mouth instead of my lunch…  and finally decided to whip out my emergency non-candy-bar sweet treat: Yogurt Pretzels.  I ate them til I felt sick from sweetness.  Then went to bed.

Spin was so hard yesterday!  Lots of heavy endurance-y stuff.  I was dripping sweat the entire class.  It was awesome!  I felt great afterward!  I usually go 1-3 times a week, and have been barely making 1 class lately.  Which means I enjoy it so much more!  I know what you’re thinking.  I should apply the same thing to derby.  The thing is: I enjoy derby very much, and when I miss a spin class, I don’t have to worry about getting behind on strategy.  A) don’t care.  B) strategy in spinning?  nope.  Derby is different.

I skipped walking Reilly yesterday.  We walk her twice a day rain or shine or snow or drizzle. Yesterday was windy blizzardy during her walk time, though.  I told Tim “Reilly text me earlier and said she doesn’t want to go for a walk because the wind is making it too cold…”  😀  We played ball in the house instead.  It was fun.

My school’s newspaper has a WordPress now.  I commented on a post as “PhantomMenace.”  Hopefully this doesn’t mean they’ll find my “meanass” blog…  that could be bad…

Oh–finally weighed myself this morning.  I’ve gained 3lbs.  Ugh.  Motivation.  3lbs of chocolate fat that needs to go!  Must resist!

The Vascillation Cont-inues…

Food:

  • Honey Nut Cheerios w/ Almond Milk, banana, coffee w/ SugarFree Caramel Macchiato creamer
  • Apple, Greek yogurt w/ fruit and granola
  • Subway turkey w/ avocado, all the veggies, no cheese, honey mustard, MOR carbonated water, Parmesan Sun Chips
  • Dove Dark Chocolates.  Hershey’s Special Dark.
  • Pork Chop w/ BBQ sauce, garlic triscuits, Crystal Light
  • 2 Diet Cokes
  • Bag of M&Ms
  • Oreos and Milk.  Real 1% milk.
  • Wine.

Exercise:

  • 50 toe pushups
  • 25 cobras, 25 v-ups
  • Lunch Walk, Stair Climb, etc.

I had a great day yesterday.  I worked 14hrs.  (6:45am-8:45pm. Basketball Clock.)  I really enjoyed everyone’s old school derby photos and the stories that went with them.  Plus it was cool how everyone positively responded to my idea.  By the end of the day, when Gaygan told the derby world to join us, I was beaming and felt like a total badass.  I went home and told Tim all about it.  And Tim was proud of me, too, and posted a picture from my actual first bout.  On my drive home, I felt certain the influx of chocolate would surely end, now that I recognize my own badassery.  Alas.  It was not to be.  😉

Because I had a busy day, I took a walk during my lunch break.  I felt naughty and kept looking over my shoulder.  (At one point the school’s security golf cart did take off from the school in my direction…)  Other than that… it was great!  I walked about…  2-3 miles?  I wanted to get my 10,000 steps in yesterday, even though I’d be working all day.  Then during basketball, I walked up and down the main hallway stairs between games and at halftimes.  I not only achieved 10,000+ steps, I also climbed 40 floors (a personal best, I think, and I didn’t even have to climb up to Dr. Borman’s office!)

Oh–Almond Milk for breakfast.  Apparently dairy is bad for me.  I have a consultation w/ Cruelie coming up, and I think she will say it is bad…  Sunny seems in agreement.  So I bought Almond Milk to try it out.  It was fine on my cereal until I got to the bottom and tried to drink it.  Okay, I succeeded in drinking it but it was all thick and creamy like whole milk and ew.  EWWWWW.

Anyway, so I went to bed feeling a total badass and then I woke up all bleeeehhhhhgh again.  *Sigh.*  This is getting so old.  It’s draining.  Regulate, damn it.  Maybe if I stop eating chocolate all day long.  I emailed Sweets asking her to help me prioritize my derby goals.  I start one and never master it then work on something new, etc.  Plus Blew & I need a Cont training plan, so I’d like some help with that.  Maybe prioritizing will help and I won’t feel so “what’s the point.”

I would argue the only person I see working harder than me is Sweets herself.  That doesn’t mean everyone else isn’t doing it, just that’s what I see at practice.  She’s also there early, but she does more than roll around aimlessly.  She also focuses on drills, etc.  So it’s hard feeling like I work harder than a bunch of people that just moved above me.  And I got this “Most Improved” award, right?  And everyone thinks that means I’m doing well.  Well.  Based on the current layout of things, I think it means I must have really really sucked a year ago and I’m “meh” now.

Everyone else thinks I’m a badass.  Why can’t I?  Or, I do… for a bit…  then I just don’t see it anymore.  Why is it so fleeting?

Just hold ’em off for a few seconds

Food: 2633

  • Turkey Sausage Muffin, milk, coffee, creamer, banana
  • Greek yogurt w/ fruit and granola and an apple
  • Greek yogurt tuna (this is pretty good, you can’t really tell it’s not mayo) on wheat w/ reduced fat swiss, cottage cheese, banana, VitaRain Sport
  • … oreo cheesecake slice…
  • Giant Salad w/ roma tomato, English cucumber, mushroom, and imitation crab.  Honey-greek yogurt-oj-apple cider vinegar dressing.  Glass of red wine

Exercise:

  • Long Reilly walk
  • Spin Class.  Lots of sprinting. 

OMG.  I love-loathed Spin Class today.  Sprinting is a good thing for me to work on.  And I enjoy feeling the sprint muscles in my thighs/calves engage.  But then I’m sprinting.  And sprinting.  And sprinting.  And it’s miserable.  But then it was over and it felt pretty good.  

I feel like I’m starving myself, yet I had 2600+ calories today.  Granted the cheesecake is a factor (there’s soooo much crap everywhere I turn) but still.   I didn’t eat before spin, huge salad after.  I felt like I could have eaten less, too.  I get that way–sort of a hungry/not hungry after exercising hard.  It’s weird. 

I’m exhausted.  So tired.

Annoyed

Food: 2592/1958

I’m super annoyed.  I left my laptop at school last night to be re-imaged.  (They wipe the harddrive and load all the new shit on it) so I couldn’t sync my Fitbit.  I walked 18,000+ steps, plus went to Spin Class.  So I ate.  I ate well.  I ate what I usually eat when I do well.  And here I am wayyyyy over on calories.  Sure.  I’m on the 750/day deficit.  But still.  I’m 600 calories over.  wtf.  Eff You, Fitbit.  Eff you.

  • Healthy bowl of honey nut cheerios and 1% milk w/ coffee and sugar free pumpkin spice creamer.  
  • Healthy apple with greek yogurt, fruit, and granola.  Healthy Protein Chewy Bar.
  • …4 Dove Dark Chocolates.
  • Healthy Ham and reduced fat swiss cheese on wheat sammie.  VitaRain Sport, Banana.  (Healthy.) I totally skipped mayo and mustard and anything else loaded with caloric delciousness.  Bread.  Meat.  Cheese.  
  • Healthy Naked Blue Machine w/ 1/3 cup of healthy nonfat greek yogurt mixed in.
  • Healthy wild rice with grilled chicken, white toast w/ apple butter, Healthy glass of 1% milk.
  • Not even a half glass of wine. Tim poured me a nice sized glass but I was falling asleep from all my exercise so I gave it to him and went to sleep.  

Okay, so the chocolate and wine were not that great for me (and totally not nearly as awesome individually instead of together) but the only food indiscretions I had yesterday–plus they equal less than 300 calories.  *Sigh.*  But I guess they do account for over 250 of those extra calories.  Fuuuck.  This shit’s hard.

Top that off with: I did fine at Spin.  Except I’ve been going over 120 rpms these past few weeks and Leslie instructed a new girl last night not to.  I know I shouldn’t, but Kill Bill wants everyone over 120 practically the duration of his class, so I’m conditioned to do it.  Anyway, this means more tension on the wheel in future classes.  More tension = harder = hurts more.  My legs *always* hurt.  And it’s starting to annoy me.  I hate constantly being tight, stiff, sore, or in pain.  UGHHHH.

Exercise:

  • Looooong Reilly walk
  • Spin Class

Today I am clearly a CRANK@$$ instead of a MEAN@$$.  Blergh.
