So sore today

Food intake :

Breakfast : Kashi go lean with barely any vanilla almond milk (I ran out as soon as I started pouring) - Estimate 205 calories

Lunch : Grilled pepper jack, fried egg sandwich - Estimate 320 calories

Gym : Cardio day. 3 mile intervals; Run, jog, sprint and walked incline - Burned approximately 300 calories

Snack : Protein shake - 80 calories

Dinner : Six inch subway turkey on wheat with provolone, lettuce, pickles and onions - Estimate 450 calories

Snack : 2tbsp of ice cream - Estimate 100 calories? If half a cup is 140 calories then.. Sure.

* I really had to resist the urge to binge tonight. Oh will power..

Calories - estimate 1,155

Also, I got my ukulele today and I have a job interview with Nike soon :) Today is a good day.

Tea contains antioxidants. Antioxidants can help slow down the aging process, and help cells regenerate and repair.  Many studies suggest antioxidants also assist our bodies in preventing cancer.
Tea can lower stress hormone levels. Black tea can reduce the effects of stressful events by lowering the amount of the stress hormone cortisol in the body.
Tea fights cavities and reduces plaque. Compounds in tea are capable of killing or suppressing growth and acid production of cavity causing bacteria in our mouths.
Tea keeps you hydrated. Every cup of tea you drink, especially low or no caffeine varieties, counts as a cup of water with the added bonus of providing antioxidants as well.
Tea may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. Tea can help prevent formation of dangerous blood clots which are often the cause of strokes and heart attacks.
Tea can help lower blood pressure. Drinking green tea daily can reduce your risk of hypertension by up to 50%.
Tea aids your body in digestion. Tea has been used for thousands of years as an after-meal digestive aid.  It can also help relieve stomach cramps.
Tea may help prevent diabetes. There is some evidence to suggest that green tea might help to lower the risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes.
Tea can help beat bacteria. An Egyptian study testing the effects of green tea on antibiotics found the tea to enhance the bacteria killing effects of the drugs.
Tea aids your immune defenses. A study comparing the immune activity levels of coffee drinkers vs. tea drinkers found the tea drinkers to have levels up to five times higher.

It’s June.

And I quit my waitressing job. The perfect time to start a new workout routine. Hopefully I’ll get the 9-5 job I’m going for.

Starting tomorrow I’m going to incorporate supersets into my workouts and begin training for a few races in fall. One containing six obstacle courses in the mud. 

After seeing a few recent full body pictures of myself I am not happy with the lack of progress I’ve made the past couple months. My biggest insecurity are my arms and I feel like they’ve gotten bigger. It’s time to really clean up my diet and really limit my alcohol intake all together. It’s not worth it.

So with all the cardio I’m about to embark on, the change up on strength training and my new purchase of a weighted jump rope I should / hope to see improvements in six weeks or so. Before picture coming soon..

No Insanity

Workout : Legs & abs at the gym. I didn’t realize, but I hadn’t worked with free weights in about 6 months. I did a quarter of what I normally would do and I’m already dying. I’m so pumped to start “two a days” and get my ass back. Also, I’m officially on payroll as a personal trainer :) Now if only I could get a hold of my first client so we can start..

Food :

Breakfast : Rushed to work, ate like 4 or 5 strawberries and 2 sips of nasty soup

Lunch : Pad kee mao and a glass of sweet tea

Dinner : Turkey sandwich with spinach, onion and provolone and watermelon !

BTW * I weighed myself today for the first time in months. I was a little disappointed to see 128. I’ve gained a few pounds. But it’s funny because when I look at myself in the mirror I feel like I’ve lost weight. I love my body! And I’ll love it even more once my abs poke through.
