What a difference a day makes! I had a much better day today. For starters, I got close to 8 hours of sleep last night. The kids got up and going a little earlier, which made the morning less rushed. I was ready for my workout as soon as I dropped the kids off at school. There was a Step Class that started at 9:30 and a few weeks ago I went and it was full. Today I got there almost 20 minutes early and got one of the last few spots. It was so great. I still really sucked at the choreography, but I could keep up with the whole cardio element. It felt so great to notice improvement. After class, I did legs and again, noticed that I had developed more strength. Next was shoulders, and even though I'm getting better, I don't feel like I'm developing strength in my arms as quickly. I'm sure it'll come if I'm patient. By the time I left to pick up Little One I had burned 1077 calories. That was a great way for me to get my head back in the game.
I ate a protein bar after my workout, since I wouldn't have a chance to go home for awhile. I went for high protein and low sugar and it was pretty good. Later in the afternoon, I made myself a yummy crab salad. Who needs a sandwich when they can have this for lunch...
It was so yummy. I didn't realize that crab was so high in protein and low in calories and fat. It's a little pricey, but it's nice to switch up what I'm eating. For dinner, I made spaghetti squash and meatballs. Meatballs aren't quite the same when you leave out the parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. They were okay, but I'm going to have to find a way to make them great.
Tomorrow it's supposed to rain, so I will have a first. Either my first time running in the rain or on a treadmill. I'm pretty nervous about either option. I'll just do what I've done pretty well for the last two plus weeks...just do it. I guess Nike was really onto something. Well, I'm off to finally watch Boardwalk Empire with my sweetie.
