Another great workout!

I made it to the YMCA in time for the Express Fitness class this morning, but just barely. That class almost kicked my butt today! But I made it thru it, then headed downstairs to the pool. I did a new class this morning called Deep Water Circuit. It was a pretty good workout in the deep end of the lap pool. By the time I finished it, I was almost ready to call it a day, but I stuck it out. After that class, I did my laps. Yesterday I only managed to do 6 laps, but today I did my full 9. After that, I went to my arthritis water class, and then headed home.

I stopped at the Neighborhood Market and picked up some extra lean ground round and came home and made myself a taco salad. I was tempted to stop at Taco Bell (it's just 2 doors down from the Y) and have lunch, but I resisted. I'm glad I did and lunch was delicious! I'm almost ready for my afternoon snack. I have fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and bananas for that! I haven't decided what to fix for dinner yet. I've been going over some menus on MobileFit. I'll keep looking at them and figure out what to fix for the rest of the week. Terry and I are both trying to eat better, so this is good for both of us.

I've been looking at the pool schedule and am thinking about doing an all water workout and see how that goes. The only thing is, I would need to be at the Y by 8am. I've been really rushing to get there by 9:30 this week. I would like to try it, tho. I'm going to really try to go to bed early tonight and get up early tomorrow. We'll see how it goes.

But for now, it's time for my snack!

great morning!

Woke up a little late this morning, but still made it to the gym in time to go to the Express Fitness class this morning. After that 30 minute class, I headed downstairs and changed into my swimsuit. Next I went to Aqua Zumba for an hour. Next, I swam 1/4 mile in the lap pool, then finished up with 45 minutes in my water arthritis class. Busy morning, but I'm very happy I went!

After I finished my workout, I went upstairs and logged in my workout. I have received enough points now on MobileFit that I have earned a certificate for a one hour session with a trainer! Tomorrow when I go to the Y, I'll take it with me and set up my hour. Then I can check with the trainer to make sure I'm on the right path in my goal to both lose weight and get in shape.

Now, I'm getting ready to log onto MyMobileFit from home so that I can go over the nutrition section so I can make up menus with healthy foods. And I am going to make sure I have plenty of healthy snacks on hand. I love fresh fruit and am so glad summer is coming so the Farmer's Market will be open and I can get all I can eat!

So, time to go make up some nutritious menus!

Time to get back at it!

Didn't get to the gym these past 2 weeks with the kids here and traveling, so I'm ready to get back at it tomorrow! I was up to 1/4 mile a day in the lap pool, and I am wanting to up that to 1/2 mile by the end of April! Hopefully I haven't lost too much of the progress I was making. Tomorrow I'm planning to do the cardio workout I have been doing, and add back in the weight workout I used to do. I have got to get really serious this month so I will be ready for our anniversary trip in May!

So, with that in mind, I'm heading to bed so I can be up early to head to the gym in the morning! I'm sure I will be a little sore again this week because of the break I took, but hopefully I will get back in the groove fairly quickly! And the only traveling plans I have for this month are a weekend over to NWA to celebrate the girls' birthdays. So that should help me stay on track.

I also want to really go over the nutrition guide on the Mobilefit website. I know I need some serious help figuring out what to eat and what portion sizes. So I will be spending some time on there tomorrow before I make out my grocery list for the week.

So, now it's off to bed so I am ready for my workout tomorrow! Yay!!
