Home from Arizona!

2011February 003

This is the one and only picture I took of Justin and I in Arizona!  I can’t believe it. I am not sure what is up with the lack of picture taking.  I am usually all over the camera!  This is us after spending the day at the Phoenix Open Golf Tournament.  We both bought fun new visors and I got a a cute t-shirt too!

I kept up with my workouts while on vacation!  It was chilly there but a A LOT warmer than here!  I ran OUTSIDE!  It felt so good!  I lifted weights and went to my very first Zumba class with my mother in law.  It was so fun!

My diet wasn’t too bad.  I didn’t stick exactly to the plan I had in my head, but I didn’t go crazy.  Justin’s Dad and Stepmom are healthy eaters so it was pretty easy to make good decisions!

We got home Monday afternoon and I went right back to my meal plan.  I had salmon and brussel sprouts for dinner.  I was up one pound Tuesday morning, but that was due to water retention, because that is already gone plus two more pounds!  Woo hoo!  I have officially lost 5 pounds in two weeks!

Yesterday was great! It felt good to be back on my eating and exercising routine.

Workouts:

  • Morning Cardio
    • 50 minutes on elliptical
  • Warehouse (circuit = 5 times)
    • Kettlebell Swings
    • Pushups with feet on box
    • Reverse lunge with knee up with barbell
    • Squat rows
    • Body weight squats
    • Body weight squat jumps
    • Jungle gym rows
    • Squat jump while throwing medicine ball against wall
    • Long jumps/high jumps
    • Run 1 mile (at the end for cool down)
  • Diana (at home)
    • Forward lunges (alternating and stationary)
    • Leg curls
    • Overhead press
    • Lateral raises (slightly bent over)
    • Romanian deadlifts
    • Weighted, one legged glute raises
    • Alternating front/side raises
    • Reverse flys

Diet:

Meal #1: Oats with protein.  I made my protein with less water and kind of pudding-like.  It was sooo yummy!  It tasted like a no-bake cookie that isn’t set up.  In fact, I may try putting this in the fridge and seeing if I can make them into no bake cookies!

Meal #4: 2 eggs, 1 slice brown rice toast – FORGOT PICTURE AGAIN!

I snacked on some almonds too.  I missed TWO meals yesterday.  I feel like I ran out of time in the day.  I will get better about this.  I have to get all the food in since I am working out so much.

It snowed again last night!  I am making my way down to workout with Diana no matter what!  I missed all of last week with her due to our blizzard and then going out of town.  I am hoping by the time I have to drive downtown this morning, enough people will have driven on the roads to make them clear for me!  I HATE driving in the snow!

Time for morning cardio!

    The roads aren't that bad out :) The side streets are really the only thing to worry about!
