TGI THURSDAY!

WOOHOOO SHORT WORK WEEKS ARE THE BEST! I am so happy! Not only am I off mañana from my 9-5 but I am ALSO off from the gym on Saturday! YAY (((((PERFECT STRANGERS HAPPY DANCE)))))


Did I tell you about the Parrot in my neighborhood? About a week ago, a Parrot began hanging around my window and he is soooooo LOUD! all morning all I hear is AWK AWK AWK...my friend was like are you SURE it's a Parrot? HM YEAH! he is Green and HUGE....well this morning my little Parrot returned and now he made a friend! so now I have TWO parrots hanging on my window (that sounds like a nursery rhyme ha)


Eats:
Ayer for Lunch I had a cup of Black Beans mixed with Sweet Potato, Onions, and Peppers. And Grapes on the side



When I got home I was Starving, so I had 2 Tbsps of PB



For Dinner I made a Smoothie with 1 scoop of Light Muscle Milk and Strawberries and a plate of Part Skim Mozzarella, Grapes, and Pepperoni
(90210 is always on my tv)


This morning BEFORE my workout I had 1 scoop of LMM



For Bfast I just had an orange, Oikos Honey Yogurt (God I love this) and my usual coffee (iced)



WORKOUTS:
Ayer I did 50 Minutes of abs and burned 249 Calories. This Morning I did My Warm up, Cardio, Upper, Lower, Core, and Cool Down of my WH's DVD and burned 502 Calories in 65 minutes.


As you can see this morning I had my LMM before my workout because ayer when I was listening to Jillian's show she said we should ALWAYS eat before our workout. The problem is, I work out the minute I get up but she says we should wait at least 30 mins AFTER we eat to workout so the food is absorbed and we have more energy. I waited 10 mins because I can't sit around for 30 minutes since I have to go to work. I ended up feeling sick though, well not SICK but I felt icky. I could feel the liquid bouncing around my belly. I know a lot of people out there workout in the morning too, do you eat right before your workout and if so what do you eat??? I was thinking of perhaps having a tbsp of PB and see how that works. Or should I just follow what I have done in the past and just workout without eating? Your thoughts....


Namaste...

  1. I don't feel it's necessary to eat before you work out...unless it's in the morning, which is true in your case. Perhaps a banana? PB can be hard to digest.

  2. I know that different things work for different people and as long as you aren't really hungry and your workout does not suffer, there is no need to eat right before you work out. Mine depends on my appetite, but 9 times out of 10, I eat a normal breakfast and then wait to work out. But when that is not an option or I'm not that hungry, I just grab a small cereal bar and some water.
