SP 2nd Blog - March 30, 2010

Today was a decent Tuesday.  I have decided that on Tuesdays I'm going to start running instead of doing Zumba, I shall continue with Body Pump, but instead of taking Zumba just run 4-6 miles afterwards.  I need to get my speed up and I want to lose these last pounds and that entails more running, so that's what I'll do.  I set the alarm an hour early and really, truly intended to get up and run 5 miles before work so all I would have to do is Body Pump after work, but the snooze button won.  For some reason, I was so exhausted this morning.  I was definitely dragging all day.  It was staff meeting day (food day) and I brought some lentil soup that my dad and I made... okay, more so my dad than I, but whatever, I helped!  It's really not my fault, I  asked for his insight because he makes the best lentil soup, and he just kinda took over.  Anyhoo, the soup was a hit!  Today my sister met me at the gym after work and did Body Pump with me, she did so awesome and I'm super proud!  She says she'll start coming with me, so yay!  Afterwards I hit the dreadmill and got in a total of 4.67 miles.  Odd number, I know, but I was doing intervals and I stopped according to how my intervals were going.  It took me a total of 44 minutes, which is not too shabby (for  me) considering that includes a 2 minute cool down and two minutes of jogging at 5.5 to warm up.  I switched it up between 6.5, 6.3 and 6.0 for  the rest of the run.  This is the deliciousness that awaited me for dinner when I got home:

Green bean stew I referred to last blog, I can't prounounce the Arabic name.
However, I still have not eaten because I'm suffering from crazy heartburn; maybe working on speed will help me drop the pounds in even more ways than I planned!  Now that I've given a brief update, I thought it was time for a past Sparkpeople blog post, so here we go:

What's wrong with me??

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

The past month I've felt really.... bleh! I'm not sure what's going on, I need to be eating more protein and complex carbs maybe? Yesterday I ate a fiber plus bar and a banana for breakfast and I didn't even get hungry until almost 1. I made a pita, turkey, cow cheese, cucumber, tomatoe and spring mix salad and it looked SO good and sounded SO good. Then I ate half of it and started feeling nauseous. I ended up throwing the rest away! I'm not pregnant, I'm on birth control and on my time right now... then around 4:30 (right when I was leaving work of course!) I started hearing grumblings in my stomache, but I didn't feel hungry. Then I was starving by 6:30 when I finally got around to dinner. I just feel off. Tired all the time and blah! I've been kinda depressed the past week or two and I know that definitely contributes, but hey what can you do?? I don't feel like I'm losing any weight, though a gf at work says she sees it, but if I am plateauing already... Lord this is going to be tougher than I thought! Anyway, I'm gonna try and just keep my chin up, I won't give up this time!!!!!! emoticon


I guess I was a lot less winded back then, sorry for your misfortune at just tuning in now!  Alrighty I'm off to ice my foot.  Then I need to make lunches, do laundry and all the other shit men and children take for granted.  ;)  Ttfn.
