I FINALLY GOT TO THE GYM.
My friend Emily went with me, and we did really well. The indoor track in our rec center is 1 mile = 6.5 laps. So we walked 7 laps (because really, who walks 6.5 laps and stops? "Can I have a Segway for the rest of the trip?" I think not.) Then we did 10 situps each, and while I could probably have done more, it was really hurting my tailbone so we stopped. We also spent time on the exercise bikes. Emily went on the regular bike for a mile, but my doc recommended me to start on the recumbent bike. So I did, but it was a kind of awkward position or angle or something, and I could feel it pulling at a muscle in my groin, so I stopped because a groin injury is NOT on my list of things to do this month.
I also ate relatively healthy today. I had breakfast (toasted English muffin with peanut butter and a glass of V8 fusion, which I LOVE THAT STUFF), I had lunch (chicken sandwich and a snack size bag of Munchos, and a bottle of water[!!!]), and my mom was off work today and made dinner (meat loaf made with ground turkey, sliced tomatoes with cottage cheese, and a cornbread casserole thing that I totally could have eaten six pounds of but restricted myself to only one serving).
While the chicken sandwich was not the 100% best choice ever, since it came from Chick-Fil-A and was therefore fried, it was the best choice of everything available in the POD market in the building on campus where I have all my classes. And I did put mayo on it, but I only used half the packet. Baby steps, right?
The only thing I have to confess today is about my coffee.
I have a Starbucks habit. It is right on my way to school every morning and come on, it is mocha delicious. And I am only 8 days away from becoming the mayor of said Starbucks on Foursquare. So, yeah. Habit. BUT I have been behaving. Since last week, I have ordered the mocha frappuccino light, grande sized. According to caloriecount.about.com, this is only 167 calories. Not bad, eh?
This morning, I was a bad little weather girl. *shifty eyes* But it was sooooooooooo good. I'm NOT beating myself up over it because I was so well-behaved for the rest of the day, and I did go to the gym. Overall, I'm calling today a success.
What did YOU do today that was on track? Tell me about YOUR success!
