I had another great gym visit today. I decided to just work on the treadmill today and then do a little leg work on the weights. I walked for 5 minutes at a 3.5 pace, then I stepped it up for 5 min at a 4.5 pace. I did this off and on for 25 minutes. I then focused on my inner and outer thighs with the weight machines. I did 3 reps of 30 on each machine. I really don't like keeping the boys in the little daycare for too long, I think around 30-45 minutes is enough.
I had a small victory today. I went to go and get my hubby and I some "adult beverages" at the gas station (because today was a long day) and I thought about getting a candy while I was there. In my head I was literally trying to convince myself that I needed chocolate. But, I didn't get it! I said, "Laura, you are making an awesome low calorie meal tonight and you are drinking some calories tonight. You are worth more than a candy bar!" And it worked! I talkd my way out of chocolate!
Here is my low calorie pasta meal I got out of a recipe book my mom gave me a couple years back. I will post the pic and recipe on my next post!
Confession: I had pizza for lunch and didn't mointor my intake very much. We had field day today. A bunch of 12 year olds running around in the heat and me sitting in the heat watching them sucks.
Cheer: Even though I felt super tired today and almost drove past the gym, I still went! I even came home afterwards to make a healthy meal!!
