Protein Day

When I first tried to lose weight, I saw a nutritionist on a biweekly basis and I really owe a lot of my success to her. One of the things that she made me do was incorporate Protein Days twice a week (on the two days before my weigh ins) and I believe that really helped me shed the lbs. Lately I have strayed away from the core things that helped me and I need to refocus. So on that note, Protein Days are back on Wednesday and Thursdays; the main objective of this is to try to stay away from Grains on these two days.


Workouts and Eats:
I was starving before Lunch ayer, so I had Honey Nut Cheerios


Guess what I had for lunch???? YUP another burger but this was one was VERY different from the day before. It had NO MAYO, less than half of the Cheese and it was loaded with veggies, OH and NO FRIES! lol..It still tasted yummy and much more healthier.



For Din Din I was craving a Pepperoni Pizza but instead of dialing Papa John's, I made my own on a WW Pita and it was just as good. I used 8 slices of Pepperoni, WW Pita, Part Skim Mozzarella, and Ragu Chunky Mushroom Marinara



Last night I did Turbo Jam 20 minute workout, Turbo Abs and 50 situps and burned 291 calories in 40 minutes.


Since I am hopefully going to Zumba tonight, I only did 25 minutes of Toning and 100 situps this morning and burned 123 Calories.

Another thing that I have been finding Challenging is getting up in the morning to get at least a 45 min workout! Ever since the time change which was about 2 months ago, my body is still not used to it. I was able to get up at 6:30 with no problem but lately I hit snooze over and over again. I have tried going to bed earlier, going to be later, etc and nothing is working. The norm is getting up around 7am and only doing 30 minutes which is NOT bad but I just liked getting a really good workout done before I left the house. I think I am going to start putting my alarm across the room so I have to get up to turn it off...What tricks do you use to get your butt out of bed to workout?

Ohh I almost forgot ha...right now I am eating Grapes and Part Skim Mozzarella with my usual coffee for Breakfast



Have a great day!


Namaste...

  1. My trick that I used when working out at 5am was to immediately turn on the TV. The light forced me to wake up. I think what would also work for me is checking all of my messages on my BlackBerry. It just makes me excited to see what's new.

  2. I have to take my dog outside first thing in the morning so that always helps me get moving when I don't want to. By the time we get back in, I'm usually awake!

    I haven't exercised in the mornings for a while though, the weather/time change got me too!

  4. I think once your body gets used to it feels normal and easy :) Music helps too.

  5. making your own pizza at home is so much better! you can put your own toppings, and adjust it to your own taste, and it's more nutritious!
    I get up every morning to go for a walk. I don't really need a special motivation..it's already become so much of a habit that I feel so weird if I don't!
