change of program
Hello my lovelies! happy monday! hope your day is going well so far 🙂
Before I get talking about my day i wanted to mention that Hangry Pants is having an almond butter giveaway! YUMM
This morning started off with a yogurt/cereal combo. I haven’t had this in a while for breakfast, so i busted out the puffins (another box finished!) some nature’s path pumpkin granola and some plain ff yogurt. I’m surprised that it actually kept me full just as long as the oatmeal does.
Midday snack was apple and almond butter. winning combination, and i fall in love with almond butter more and more every day. I was able to make it to the gym today for group power! I realize that I skimp on weight training so bad, and when i keep it in my regular schedule, I can really see a difference in my body. I’m going to be more diligent and make sure I at least weight train 2 times a week at a minimum.
Remember how I was telling you guys about Jillian’s 2 new dvds? well last night i was browsing through my on demand, and i found them! I picked the no more trouble zones, and heckkkkk it was hard! it’s along the same lines as the 3o day shred for any of you that have done that workout. There are multiple circuits and its nonstop. This one lasts about 45 minutes and was a total butt kicker. I’m going to try her Banish Fat Boost Metabolism one tomorrow. I can’t believe these are free on demand. so pumped.
Lunch today was simple and sweet. I had an arnolds thin with spinach and 1/4 of an avocado. I paired it up with some roasted red pepper and tomato soup. I wanted to simplify my eats today and go with something clean and simple.
Question for all of you out there: I am currently in the market for a heart rate monitor. I have been poking around looking at some Polar ones, and seem to be liking the F6. Any reviews or opinons on any brand of heart rate monitor that can help me make a decision? I have been thinking about getting one, and finally made the decision to do it. I’m really excited and can’t wait to see all my stats on my workouts!
OH and I also have decided to change my 10k training plan. The Galloway one that I had previously picked out just wasn’t working for me. I wanted one that had some intervals thrown in there, and that progressed a little quicker. I found one last night on the Atleta website and I really really like the way it looks. Check it out: ) what I love most about it is that it really mixes things up, and involves yoga! Since it is an 8 week program, and my 10k is on April 19, I am going to train on my own and up my mileage gradually until feb 19, then will start the program. I can’t believe the race is only a little over 2 months away… then all the other races come pretty quickly after, so i’m excited to get my first 10k done! It is #1 on my 2009 goals!
