Feel Good Wednesday

Thanks to Arrowhead®, Deer Park®, Ice Mountain®, Ozarka®, Poland Spring®, Zephyrhills® Brands Sparkling Natural Spring Waters for sponsoring today’s discussion.

Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike…what day is it Mike? It’s Hump Day! Whoot! Whoot!

Please tell me that I am not the only one that loves that commercial?! We usually record the tv shows that we watch and fast forward through the commercials, but I love that camel commercial and have to watch it every time it’s on. If I’m not mistaken, I think I even saw a hump day camel shirt on Pinterest…

Wednesdays are always hard because even though the week is half over, you still have half of the week to get through. And since I rather focus on the positive of the week being half over rather on the negative of there still being half a week left, I like to think of things to help get me over that hump and through the rest of the week.

Of course, one of things that I enjoy doing to get me over that hump is exercising. Bet you didn’t see that one coming, did you? But there is one exercise that helps my body and mind and is a great stress reliever – yoga.

I used to go to yoga once or twice a week for a long time. Then life got in the way and I stopped going as much. Lately, I have been trying to get back into the yoga habit. And since I am still injured, it’s one of the exercises classes that I can actually participate in.

And wouldn’t you know it, my gym offers yoga on Wednesdays. Maybe they know that a lot of people need to get through that mid-week slump.

And even though yoga isn’t the most strenuous of exercises (although it can be!), it’s still important to stay hydrated. I like to drink Ice Mountain water. I like Ice Mountain because they also offer sparkling water.

I usually buy the lemon Ice Mountain flavor because my kids love it too and I’m always trying to get them to drink more water.

Ice Mountain Sparkling Natural/Mountain Spring Water is comprised of just three natural ingredients—spring water, natural fruit essence, and bubbles! And, with no sugar or calories, Ice Mountain Sparkling Natural/Mountain Spring Water is a good alternative to soda. I try not let really let my kids drink soda unless it’s a special occasion, so sparkling water is a great compromise.

There are lots of ways to get through a mid-week slump. Here’s a few of my favorite ways:

  • Exercise! You can do anything – walk, run, yoga, kickboxing, etc.
  • Listen to your favorite song – my favorite song currently is Cups by Anna Kendrick.
  • Read a book – they help you escape to another world.
  • Play – who does love to just play and let the stress melt away. Play with your kids, nieces, nephews, you neighbor’s kids (you might want to ask them first). Play with your dog, cat, or pet turtle. Play with your grandma. Just have fun.
  • Drink you favorite beverage – treat yourself to Starbucks or have a sparkling water. Or wine. Drink wine.
  • Call someone – call your mom, your dad, your doctor. Talk about your day and listen about their day.
  • When all else fails – eat chocolate.

July Kona Kase

Last Night’s Workout

  • Yoga – 60 minutes

I didn’t workout yesterday morning, but I did decide to go to yoga in the evening. I was hoping that it would help to stretch and loosen me up a bit.

20130717_190619

I used to go to yoga on a regular basis, but haven’t gone in a really long time, so it was nice to get back. We also do a lot of core work in yoga which I need!

Today’s Workout

  • 5.06 miles treadmill (6x 20 second strides)

Danny went to the gym this morning, so I couldn’t wake up early and run outside. He did offer to stay home and let me run, but I wasn’t too excited about running in the humidity so I decided just to run on the treadmill.

I haven’t ran on the treadmill since my not-so-good run last week, but today’s run went surprisingly well. I am a little slower on the treadmill than I am outside, but I finished 5 miles in 58:56, and I was able to run the whole thing without even one walk break.

20130718_100238

My quad wasn’t too bad (I usually feel it later in the day) but my knee hurt, so when I got home I iced my quad and my knee. I also made sure to stretch for about 12 minutes after I was done running.

I wear my heart rate monitor on the treadmill, but it stops working because the treadmill picks up my heart rate instead. Does anyone know how to fix this?!

Kona Kase

The other day, I got the July Kona Kase in the mail. The Kona Kase is a monthly subscription box, and I love these boxes because it’s like getting a surprise present in the mail each month – you never know what your case is going to include!

Core Meals

Breakfast

Breakfast was actually something different this morning – a Core Foods bar!

I recently received these Core bars to try out, and I love the concept behind them:

CORE Meals are a fresh, full bowl of raw oatmeal to go. Eat like a bar, drink water, and you’ll be satisfied for hours! Made from 7 whole, raw, 100% organic, tested GF ingredients, the whole foods in CORE Meals provide powerful, stable energy. With a controlled, fully balanced ratio of calories, complex carbs, lean proteins, and healthy fats, CORE Meals are loved by athletes for pre/post workout meals and depended upon by busy moms and adventurers.
I like that these bars are made of real food meaning that they actually spoil. They won’t stay fresh for years like the Twinkie we saw at the museum. Imagine all the preservatives in that Twinkie.
Core bars last one week on the go, one month in the fridge, and six months in the freezer.
 Core Bars are only made of a few ingredients. I ate the Raw Cashew Cacao flavor which had only the following ingredients:
I really liked the taste of the bar and that it provides four hours of stable energy. Four hours will last me through my workout and until lunch! I love these because they’re portable and great for after a workout too.
Core Foods is having a great giveaway on their Facebook page!
Yesterday’s Workout
  • Yoga – 60 minutes

I finally went back to yoga last night. Last year, I went to yoga every single Wednesday (and sometimes on Saturday!). Then when I joined the Biggest Loser at my gym, I had to stop going to yoga because the Biggest Loser met on Wednesday nights.

When the Biggest Loser ended, winter started, and I had no motivation to leave the house in the freezing weather and the dark. So, here I am back at yoga! It’s still freezing out but at least the sun is still out :)

I’ll be back later with today’s workout and the winner of the Albion Fit giveaway!

  • Ever take yoga?
  • How do you motivate yourself to workout at night or during cold weather?
  • What did you have for breakfast today?

Hershey Kiss Pretzel Treats

Yesterday, Jacob and I made Hershey Kiss pretzel treats.

Jacob has five teachers at middle school, so it’s kind of hard to buy them all a gift for the holidays. But at the same time, I think it’s very important to let teachers know they’re appreciated. I think being a teacher is one of the hardest, yet most rewarding, jobs there is.

So, we decided to make Hershey Kiss pretzel treats and cookies for Jacob’s teachers along with a nice card.

I have never made these before, but my stepmom has made them before, and they always come out so delicious. The saltiness of the pretzels with the sweetness of the chocolate is the perfect combination. We used red and green M&Ms for Christmas colors.

Hershey Kiss Pretzel Treats

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of Hershey kisses
  • pretzels (I used Synder’s regular snap pretzels.)
  • M&Ms

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Count how many Hershey kisses you have and lay that number of pretzels on a baking sheet lined with foil. (We had about 70 kisses and made them in two batches). Place a Hershey kiss in the middle of each pretzel.
  3. Cook about 3-5 minutes so that the chocolate is soft but doesn’t lose its shape. For us, it took about four and half minutes.
  4. As soon as you take the pretzels out of the oven, push an M&M into the middle of each Hershey Kiss. Put in the fridge until cool.
  5. Eat one to make sure they’re delicious.

Today we’re going to make cookies!

Back Strength

I brought my niece home with me from my brother’s house yesterday, and she spent the night with us so my brother and sister-in-law wouldn’t have to worry about picking her up. My sister-in-law went back to work today, and Paul can’t be alone with my niece because he pretty much can’t move. At all.

You gotta love baby morning hair:

Hopefully, he’ll get something figured out soon or at least his back will start to feel a little better, but it’s pretty bad.

Seeing him in so much pain really made me think about how important it is to strengthen your back. Doing back exercises is a great way to strengthen your back to help prevent injury. Of course, not all back pain is 100% preventable, but strengthening your back can help to prevent future injuries.

My Aunt Pam pointed out to my brother that yoga can really help with back pain. I agree that yoga is great and even did a post on some of the benefits of yoga.

Besides yoga, strengthening your core is also a great way to help protect your lower back.

Today’s Workout

  • Elliptical – 5 minutes

Yes, that’s right, my workout was 5 minutes this morning. I brought my niece to the kid’s room at the gym and went to the fitness room across from the kid’s room so that I could hear her if she cried. Well, she wanted nothing to do with the kid’s room and cried and cried, so I just took her home.

Jaden used to do the same thing when I took him to the gym when he was a baby. It took him a while to get used to it, and then he loved going. And the girls in the kid’s room at my old gym were so sweet – they even threw Jaden a party on hs birthday.

We’re expecting a big snowstorm tonight, and I have a feeling that school might me canceled tomorrow. I hope not, because I have so many fun things for Jaden’s holiday party. I even found green and red tortillas chips that I thought the kids would love.

Have a great day!

Questions of the day:

  • Are you baking this weekend? All ready for Christmas?
  • Are you expecting snow? Love it or hate it?
  • Do you do back and core exercises?

Mini Bike Indy

Yesterday

It was nice to be back on track with healthy eating yesterday. My body feels so much better when I eat healthy foods with the occasional treat than it does when I eat not-so-good foods. Sticking to my healthy eating last night, I made spaghetti squash for dinner last night.

I topped about two cups of spaghetti squash with marinara sauce, broccoli, and parmesan cheese. I think the secret to good spaghetti squash is to not overcook it. The last time I made squash, it was a bit too soft. This time, I baked it in the oven for about 35 minutes and it came out perfect with a little bit of a crunch to it.

Yesterday’s Evening Workout

  • 2.3 miles, treadmill
  • yoga – 60 minutes

I got to the gym a little before yoga started yesterday, so I jogged and walked on the treadmill for 2.3 miles. Running wasn’t really the best idea because I had just finished eating dinner. Then, I headed to my last yoga class for a while. All the Biggest Loser workouts are scheduled for the only days that yoga is available – Wednesdays and Saturdays – so yoga has to go on hold for a while, which I am kind of disappointed about.

After yoga, I came home and had some almonds and Greek yogurt to get some protein in.

Today’s Workout

  • 2.2 miles treadmill (HIIT)

I only had a short time to workout this morning, and when I’m short on time, I like to do a high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout to get my heart rate up. I walked for 2 minutes and then ran at a faster-than-normal pace for one minute for a total of 2.2 miles. It might have been a short distance, but I was super sweaty by the time I was done.

Post workout, I had a thinkThin bar. Yum.

The reason I only had a short time to workout this morning was because Jaden was signed up to do a mini bike Indy. Luckily, it was being held about a mile from the gym.

Even though it rained today, the kids had a lot of fun. There was a bike wash station:

And an obstacle course.

They even had a super sweet fuel station set up:

At the end of the Indy, all of the kids got a certificate and a little trophy. Jaden loved it and had such a fun time.

Questions of the day:

  • What’s your favorite workout to do when your short on time?
  • Have you ever gotten a trophy for anything?
  • Any plans for this wonderful Thursday?

What Happened to Size Small

I spent two torturous hours trying on bathing suits at the mall yesterday. I left defeated and empty-handed. When we got home, Danny found my bathing suit top hanging up in the back of my closet. Go figure.

This morning, Danny woke me up at 8:10 am to ask me if I was going to yoga at 8:30 am. I wanted to punch him in the face. Obviously, if I’m sleeping, I didn’t plan on going to yoga.

Sometimes, I wake up at about 4 or 5 am, and I have a hard time going back to sleep. By the time I do fall back asleep, it’s almost time for me to get up for the day. This morning was no different. I was up at 5 am, and had just fallen back asleep when Danny woke me up. Hence, the reason I wanted to punch him. I don’t usually wake up wanting to punch people. Usually.

I did end up going to yoga, and didn’t wake up until about halfway through it. Then, I went to McDonald’s for a sugar-free iced coffee.

I finally figured out the trick to ordering a medium iced coffee. If you order a large, they give you a large. If you order a medium, they give you a large. And if you order a small they give you a medium. Apparently, they don’t have small iced coffee cups. It took me quite a few times of ordering a medium iced coffee only to get a large to figure this out. Obviously, if I order a medium, I want a medium, so stop giving me a stupid large.

Since when did they get rid of size small? And if there is no small, then isn’t the medium a small by default? Or am I thinking too much into this?

Along with my iced coffee, I had some Fiber One cereal, blueberries, and grapes.

Later in the afternoon, we stopped at Subway for lunch and brought it to the splash park. Subway is another place that’s stupid to order at. I ordered a kid’s mini sub. For a kid’s sub, they cut one stupid inch off of the bread. So, it’s not really a mini sub, it’s a 5-inch sub instead of a 6-inch sub. Not everyone wants to eat super sized.

Although, I did also eat half of Jaden’s pizza…

The kid’s played in the water and sand for a couple of hours and Danny and I had a water fight which was pretty refreshing. Except for when he threw water at me so hard that I went rolling down a hill. Thanks, honey.

This weekend’s plans include:

  • running hopefully sometime today
  • picking up my new bike which finally came in
  • going to my mom’s house tomorrow to celebrate my brother’s and Danny’s birthday

Questions of the day:

  • Do you ever have a problem ordering at restaurants?
  • What was for breakfast today?
  • Favorite sandwich?

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Thursdays come too fast. I am really not looking forward to weighing in tonight because I ate a lot of unhealthy food over the weekend. I don’t regret it because it was my 30th birthday, but I’m not excited about having to weigh-in. And my scale at home is such a pain. I weighed myself three times this morning and it gave me three totally different numbers. I think it’s just old. Can anyone recommend a good, but inexpensive, scale?

Since I ate a lot over the weekend, I have been eating really good since Monday (maybe a small bite of chocolate here and there), and I have been trying to eat most of my carbs earlier in the day and have a lower carb dinner. I know the importance of carbs and could never give up carbs (hello, bread! If I didn’t marry Danny, I probably would have married bread), but I’m just trying to watch them later in the day.

So, last night for dinner, when Danny and the kids had pasta, I had spaghetti squash in the place of pasta. Spaghetti squash is a great lower carb pasta replacement. I know what you might be thinking, who the heck can eat squash instead of pasta. Squash is a vegetable and pasta is so delicious. But actually spaghetti squash is really good, and when you cover it with sauce, you can hardly tell the difference. Just try it. If you hate it, then I’ll let you say I told you so.

How to make spaghetti squash

First, cut the spaghetti squash lengthwise in half. Then scoop out all the seeds and stringy things. Kind of like your cleaning out a pumpkin. If you want to draw a pumpkin face on it, that’s fine.

Then place it on a cooking sheet, rind side up. Bake at 375 degrees for about 35-40 minutes or until soft.

After it’s done, flip it over, and let it cool for a while. Then used a fork to pull out the “spaghetti strands.” They will come out easily.

I added roasted brussels sprouts and broccoli to my spaghetti squash, and topped all of it with marinara sauce and parmesan cheese. Then I ate all of it.

I had 1.5 cups of spaghetti squash (that might be a big serving, but it’s a vegetable!). In 1.5 cups of spaghetti squash, there’s about 58 calories and 14 grams of carbs. Compare that to 1.5 cups of spiral-shaped pasta with 318 calories and 62 grams of carbs, and that’s without sauce!

After dinner, I finally went to yoga. I haven’t been in about a week and half, and it felt so good.

I don’t know why my hair is always so crazy looking, it just is. And do you love how we use our banister as a clothes drying rack?!

Questions of the day:

  • Have you ever had spaghetti squash?
  • Do you watch your carbs?
  • Do you weigh yourself or prefer not too? Any good scale recommendations?

A Walk in the Park

Yesterday’s Workout

  • BodyPump

One of the nice things about losing weight, is that your clothes fit better, and clothes that maybe you shoved away in your dresser drawers because they were too tight, start to fit again. I was searching through my workout clothes, looking for something to wear to BodyPump, and I pulled out a shirt that was stuffed in the back of my drawer because it didn’t fit anymore. I figured I’d just try it on and see what happened.

And it fit! I can’t even tell you the last time that I wore this shirt because it has been so long. I was very happy that it actually fit. And I think that the last time I wore this shirt, I weighed less than I do now. I think it fits because I have been taking BodyPump since October. And although, I may weigh a bit more, I have more muscle and am more tone than I used to be.

Losing weight sure is hard though. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been tempted to eat half a bag of chocolate chips. Some chocolate chips usually find their way into my mouth, but at least it’s not half the bag.

Last night, we went to Subway for dinner, then we headed out to a trail that my dad and stepmom told me about. It’s closer than the one I normally got to, and I’m always up for a change of scenery!

When we got there, we saw that they had a fitness course with signs on how to complete the exercises, so we played around on that for a while.

Obviously, Danny is a better jumper than I am.

Danny and I walked, Jaden rode his bike, and Jacob rollerbladed. We walked about 1.5 miles before we had to leave for a potty break.

Tomorrow is the Mother’s Day race. Marlene picked up my race bib and goody bag for me so I’d have it before the race.

I got a fun Run Like a Mother t-shirt.

And a Luna bar and some laundry detergent. I was actually excited about the laundry detergent. Who doesn’t love free laundry detergent?

I save every single one of my race shirts, but I don’t wear them. Ever. I prefer working out in a tank top, and I don’t like the crew neck on race t-shirts. I’m not sure why I save all of them. I guess just for memories.

Today

This morning, I actually slept in to 7:45 am! I didn’t think that I would sleep that late, and had plans to go to yoga this morning. Luckily, I woke up just in time to get to yoga. I stopped at Dunkin Donuts on the way home for coffee. I haven’t had DD coffee in over a month, and it was good.

I didn’t have time to eat before yoga, so I came home super hungry. I had a bowl of peanut butter Cheerios that I picked up at Target. Sorry, Fiber Worms, you’re being pushed to the back shelf to make room for the peanut butter Cheerios. They taste better.

After breakfast, I went to the shoe store and bought an early Mother’s Day present to myself.

I hope all you moms out there have a great Mother’s Day tomorrow!

Questions of the day:

  • Do you save your race t-shirts? Do you wear them?
  • What’s the best thing you’ve ever gotten in a race goody bag?
  • Any plans for Mother’s Day?

Eating Better

Yesterday

Last night we went to Noodle and Co. for dinner.

I love Noodles and Co. and want to be able to eat there without feeling “guilty” when I’m trying to lose weight. So, before we went, I looked up the nutritional information online to plan my meal.

This is what I ordered:

  • small Japanese pan noodles   320 calories   7 grams protein
  • tossed salad with fat-free Asian dressing   45 calories
  • Horizon organic chocolate milk   150 calories   8 grams protein

Total: 515 calories   15 grams of protein

Normally, I just drink water, but I added the chocolate milk for some extra protein.

This is what I used to order at Noodles and Co.:

  • regular pasta fresca   780 calories   26 grams protein
  • 1/2 ciabatta roll 60 calories   2.5 grams protein
  • chocolate milk   150 calories  8 grams protein
  • 1/2 chocolate chunk cookie 185 calories   3 grams of protein

Total: 1175 calories    39.5 grams protein

Holy crap! That’s a lot of calories. I never really thought about it before, and just ate what I wanted. But that’s almost my entire calories for the day! I wouldn’t always add the chocolate milk and cookie, but sometimes I would. I’m glad that I was able to find something on the menu that I could still enjoy and would make me full without going overboard.

After eating, we stopped at Target, and I picked up these egg & cheese Vita sandwiches to try. 150 calories and 14 grams of protein.

The directions are kinda weird, but after wrapping and flipping and cooling, I managed to cook up my sandwich before heading to the gym this morning.

It was actually pretty good. I usually rather make my own sandwich, but these are great if you’re short on time and need something quick.

Today’s Workout

  • Yoga-Lates 60 minutes
  • 40 minutes treadmill (3:2 walk/run ratio)

I managed to wake up in time for yoga this morning, and then I stayed to run on the treadmill for a bit.

I came home and had a second breakfast with Danny.

Dear Danny,

Cut your hair and shave your face. What are you? A wooly mammoth?

He had honey nut Cheerios, and I had some overnight ”sit in the fridge while I’m at yoga” oats made with a Chobani Champions yogurt and topped with blueberries.

Questions of the day:

  • What do you eat for a quick breafast?
  • Any plans this weekend?

Have a great weekend!

Doctors, Hair Appointments, and Minneolas

Last Night’s Workout

  • Beginner Step Class
  • Yoga

Yesterday, I decided at the last-minute to take a 30 minute beginner step class. I took a regular step class back in December, but it was tough because I am not too coordinated, and I’m a little bit clumsy. Every time I finally was able to do a move, we were already on to the next move.

( Source )

My gym recently started offering a beginner step class, so I figured that I’d take it so that I could go to “the big girl’s step class” one day. <— The instructor’s words, not mine. It went really good. It was only 30 minutes and was pretty much just the basic moves. I might even show up again next week.

I also did yoga last night. I think I am beginning to get a little more flexible. My heels are a lot closer to the ground in downward dog than they used to be.

Today

We’ve had a busy day so far. After I dropped Jacob off at school, Jaden had an allergy appointment and allergy shots.

Luckily, his allergies and asthma are starting to get under control.

Right from the doctor, I had a hair appointment. I didn’t get my hair styled, so it’s still its normal crazy self, only now it’s crazy self has 14 highlights and is an inch shorter.

Yeah, it’s me in the car again. That’s a surprise. I can’t help it if the car has good lighting. And yes, that’s a pumpkin sticker on my shirt.

After my hair appointment, I met my brother at my house for the exchange of McCutie Princess Baby. I quickly ate a salad and cottage cheese with a minneola. It took me forever to find minneola on the calorie king website so I could see how many calories it had. Turns out that a minneola is actually a tangerine which is actually a mandarin orange. What? That’s too much crazy orange stuff for me, so I’m just calling it a tangerine.

And if you were wondering, a small minneola mandarin orange tangerine has 40 calories and 0.6 grams of protein. If a food item had under 1 gram of protein, I used to just pretend that it just didn’t have any protein. Then I realized that those little amounts of protein add up, and I need every teeny tiny bit of protein I can get because I still haven’t met my recommended amount of 119 grams of protein a day. Now I count every bit of protein even if it’s under 1 gram.

After I ate, I packed up Jaden and my niece and drove to another doctor to pick up a prescription. Now, we’re finally home.

I have my second weigh in tonight, and I am a little bit nervous. I lost a good amount last week, and now I feel pressure to lose a lot this week too. And actually I don’t think the scale has budged much this week even though I’ve been eating healthy and exercising. We shall see tonight! I’m going early to meet with my coach about my weekly eating plan.

Questions of the day:

  • Do you have a weight that you always seem to stick around? Where you don’t lose or gain anything?
  • What’s your favorite “quick-to-make” meal?
  • What’s the last group fitness class that you took?
