Day 2

It's been awhile since I've had a great day, but Tuesday was pretty good.

Breakfast: turkey sandwhich
Snack: berries and Kashi
Lunch: Lentils, rice, hamburger patty
Snack: 2 clementines
Dinner: chicken breast, rice, green beans

2 (3) things I really didn't need to have: 2 ginormous chocolate chip cookies and 1 marshmallow chocolate a co-worker gave me

When I got home, I rested for a bit, put on my workout gear and hit the weights. I did some great sets of arm and leg exercises. Then I attempted HITT on the elliptical. I didn't have much success there. The elliptical machine started making this weird (annoying ) noise. It appears to make it only when I am on it, so I'm figuring that I am just too damn fat for my machine. Seriously though, the noise was bothering me and I really wasn't feeling it. I think I'm getting bored of the elliptical machine. I really look forward to my weight session but thinking about the elliptical machine really brings me down. I lasted about 4 minutes on that blasted machine and then finished it off with some ab work.

I need to find some new forms of cardio.


  1. i watch the food channel while i'm on the arc trainer at the gym. oops... i guess that's not very helpful!

  2. I feel that way about my glider. I want to like it. I really do. I end up walking or doing walk/march in place, instead. I'll probably end up giving the blasted thing to my son. lol

    Yay you, for a good day!

  3. Depending on the part of the country where you live, soon you should be able to take your workouts outdoors. Biking is always fun. My husband and I like to rent a canoe and get a good upper body workout too.

    BTW, I don't know if you saw my post Monday, but it was inspired by something I read here. Hope you'll check it out if you haven't already.

  4. nancy - I love watching HGTV when I'm on the elliptical.

    Ice Queen - thank you. I think I'm going to have to try walking around my subdivision. It's not as redundant as working out on the elli every. single. day.

    Karen - YES!! In a couple of weeks it is going to start to get warmer. I am so ready to dust off my tennis racket and get some good games in. I'm heading over right now to check out that post. =)

  5. Inst it funny how were all in different places with different things? I totally hate my treadmill. Barf! Hate it. Its boring. Its loud. And its boring.
    But, I was just given an elliptical yesterday and am super excited! I'm sure after time, Ill get sick of it too - but for now its great! Do you have something else you can trade out for it - a Wii or dvds?
