84 Days Out!

I had a great day yesterday! I had so much energy and felt really focused. Nice change from Tuesday when I felt like a zombie and slept most of the day! I did 40 minutes of interval cardio on the treadmill. I really like the 1 minute intervals of 6mph at 10% - 4mph at 1% that I'm doing. I did it for 20 minutes again yesterday and jogged and walked at a slower pace for the other 20 minutes. I was soaked with sweat and dying!! It was great! Then I went to karate and no one had shown up to run moves with me so I was going to do my own thing and do some exercises in between each chart. After a couple charts another girl showed up and she was willing to do the crazy exercises too and then a chart later another girl showed up and she jumped in too. I didn't actually think I would be able to do all the exercises between every single chart all the way to 3rd black but with those other girls in there and each of us pushing each other we did it! It felt so great! Then we just stayed in our workout clothes and worked on some weapons katas that we needed to work on. I left there feeling so great! I love being around other people that get into stuff like that and want to work hard and get sweaty and love it! We are all going to do it from now until myself and another one of the girls test in June. All three of us have different ideas about what exercises we can do, so we won't be doing the same thing every week! I am really excited!

My diet was good yesterday. The scale didn't go down today like it should have given what I ate and the exercises I did, but my body hates gluten! I know that, but don't always think about it when I am eating something I want to eat! I was wanting mexican yesterday, so after karate I ate 3 low carb wheat wraps with 4oz. ground turkey, 4 oz lettuce and salsa (made with real ingredients, no words you can't pronounce!) spread out over the 3 wraps (not 4oz of everything in each!). Then for dinner my husband was also craving mexican so we made fajitas and I ate 2 low carb wraps with ground turkey, bell peppers, onions, lettuce and salsa. I can tell my body is reacting to the wheat wraps. It was soooo good though! It is just a temporary weight gain. I'll pound water today and clean it all out. I feel dehydrated this morning, like a head feels tight and I'm a little congested. I have to stay away from gluten!! I don't know how many times I have said that, but sometimes it taste so good, I'm willing to suffer the consequences!

Today I need to do my 40 minutes of interval cardio and lift weights. I might do another round of cardio this afternoon to make sure the scale goes down tomorrow! I need another good loss this week so I don't want to take any chances! I can not have any plateau weeks. The scale needs to be consistently going down from now on!

I was thinking about doing an Insanity DVD for my cardio today but my back is sore so I am sticking with the treadmill. After Sunday, I am 12 weeks out from the competition! That is not a lot of time. I am excited again to take pictures on Sunday and see what changes have happened this week. I am feeling really good. I feel like I am doing everything I can to reach my goal!
