Yesterday’s Workout and Weigh-In
- 3.25 miles treadmill (1 minute walk/1 minute fast run)
- Biggest Loser Circuit Workout – 60 minutes
I was really dreading the weigh-in yesterday because I know that I didn’t eat very well over the weekend and gained a little bit of weight. (It sucks that it takes me two weeks to lose a pound but only two days to gain it.)
I ended up losing 5.2 pounds since the last weigh-in. I am happy with that, although I knew it could have been higher. I plan on trying my hardest between now and the next weigh-in. So far since starting the Biggest Loser program, I have lost 12 pounds. Since I started my weight loss journey in March, I have lost 28 pounds.
We also had our body fat tested yesterday, and my body fat dropped down to 23%, so I was pretty happy about that.
- Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes
I got the new issue of Fitness magazine over the weekend, and while I was flipping though it. I found the most amazing idea – eggs in a pepper ring! So delicious, yet so easy and simple. Why have I not thought of this before?!
Luckily, I happened to have eggs, red and green peppers, and onions on hand, so I decided to combine them to make an eggs in a pepper breakfast.
I simply cut thick rings from the peppers and laid them in a pan. Then, I added one egg white per pepper, threw in a few chopped red onions, and sprinkled a little bit of pepper on top. I cooked them for a few minutes and then flipped them over to cook the other side.
I rounded out my breakfast by adding a clementine and blueberries on the side.
In completely totally unrelated news, did you hear that Hasbro is bringing back the Furby for 2012?!
Furbies were the hot toy when I was young, and I actually got kind of excited that they were bringing them back…until I saw the price tag. $54!
$54 for a Furby?! That’s just crazy. You could pay $54, or you could do what I did and go to Goodwill, buy a Furby for $2.99, and save yourself $51.01.
Questions of the day:
- What you your favorite toy as a kid?
- What’s your favorite way to eat eggs?
- Have you ever had your body fat measured?
