Moving and Grooving...

Despite a week of fitful sleep (this sinus/cold/allergy thing is overstaying its welcome), I got my butt out of bed and into workout clothes! All I wanted to do was sit in my PJs until 11am or so, sipping coffee and reading my book. But who am I kidding? That wouldn't happen anyway with my kids. So if I'm up, I'm might as well burn some calories. Fischer went to school and Amelia and I went to the ymca.

I showed up early for a Body Sculpt class and I was shocked to see 40 women lined up to get into the studio. The class didn't start until 9:25 and it was 9:15. This was ridiculous. I thought about going on a machine, but we all know how much I hate machines.....HEAT! There's a 9:15 Heat class in the gym!! I didn't feel up for Heat, but I was not going to fight for a step and weight with these women so I headed downstairs to the gym. I was surprised that I actually kept up well. We finished the circuits with 4 mins of Fartlek's. These are jog/sprint drills. You're running the whole time, but when the instructor yells "Sprint!" you have to run as fast as you can and then slow down to a normal pace when she tells you. That just about kicked my butt. But it felt good. I'm glad I ended up in the Heat class.

We've had a busy week. I really can't fathom that it's already Friday. I felt like it was just Monday. In the busyness I did have one bad meal. Well, one GOOD meal- just too much of it! Our friends had us over for fish tacos and they were seriously the best fish tacos I have ever eaten. I had two. Which isn't bad, but you have to consider the amount of tortilla chips, cheese dip, guacamole and salsa I had before the tacos. Ugh. I felt stuffed. Not a good feeling. Because of this I made a deliberate point not to get on the scale this morning. :) I figured I'd give myself a day of good eating and exercise before I see the damage.

Here's my tracker:

Whole Wheat Toasted Oat w/ skim: 3 pts
1 hardboiled egg: 2 pts

Mocha: 3 pts

Taco Salad: 8 pts
Romaine, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, avacado, salsa, non fat yogurt, black beans and a few blue corn tortilla chips crumbled on top. Delish! So delish and filling that I couldn't finish it all.

Snack: some fruit (1-2 pts)

Dinner: I'm dethawing some Tilapia. I'll pair that with a veggie and maybe some whole wheat sourdough bread. 6-7 pts

Total: 24ish points. Room for some snacks.
APs: +4 pts
So really only 20 pts used/planned so far.
