Last Night’s Workout
- Cardio Fit and Tone Class – 60 minutes
- Elliptical – 10 minutes
I went to the cardio fit and tone class at 6:20 pm last night, so I had a bowl of Kashi cereal about 4 pm, then I had a clementine and 5 pistachios at 6 pm, and I had a smoothie with a little bit of Special K when I got home about 8 pm.
I usually try not to eat dinner so late, but my eating always gets messed up when I go to the gym around 6pm.
In my smoothie:
- 1 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup peaches
- 1 container plain Greek yogurt
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- crushed ice
This morning, I had peanut butter toast, blueberries, and hazelnut coffee.

- 1.15 miles treadmill, walked
- Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes
- Stretching – 15 minutes
My right quad (it’s always my right side!) has been really sore lately, so this morning I pulled out the neglected massage stick and used it on my leg.
I think part of the problem is that I haven’t been stretching lately. I don’t stretch as often as I should, and I know that’s a problem. Today after Butts and Guts class, I stretched for 15 minutes, and I was so glad that I did afterwards. I really need to start stretching more.
After my workout, I had a Greek yogurt and a mini package of pistachios.
Each package has about six pistachios and is only 20 calories. A package or two is good for when I am craving something salty/crunchy. I usually crave sweets more than I do salty foods though.
I picked up my niece and the stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few veggies. When I got home I made a veggie and feta omelet for lunch. I also had veggies and hummus, strawberries, and a caramel pineapple Greek yogurt.
Are you watching the Biggest Loser? I was glad to see that yesterday’s episode discussed nutrition a little bit more. I like watching the Biggest Loser, but sometimes I get bored with just watching them workout all the time. I would love to know how many calories they eat, what they eat, when they eat, etc.
I think that diet is just as important as exercise if you’re trying to be healthy or lose weight, and I wished they showed more of that on the show.
I was also surprised to see that the kids on the show are also wearing the BodyMedia armbands. I thought only the adults were wearing them since they said the kids wouldn’t be weighed. Maybe they’re just wearing them to see how many calories they’re burning a daily basis.
Have a great afternoon!
