Dear Diary

November 26, 2009

Dear Diary,

I went to my nutritionist/trainer yesterday.  I was honestly scared because I haven’t been that religious about eating, and have drank a lot lately.  I didn’t gain though, still at 149lbs but I did lose a bit more body fat!

Goals is to not gain over the holidays and to improve body fat.  Maybe to make shakes that can last me all day (balanced, enough for 3 meals).

Also he showed me workouts for when I have no time to get to the gym.

Upperbody: Pushups!  Start with a set of 15.  Rest 30 seconds.  Do a set of 14, rest for 30.  Set of 13, rest for 30 and so on.  Upper body workout in a short time!

Lowerbody: Squats! Set of single leg squats, each leg.  Then wall squats.  Start at a set of 15 with 30 second breaks.  Work down to set of 1 as above.

Intervals: Do a set of pushups, squats, crunch, sprint.  Do for 15 minutes.

Dear Diary

November 20, 2009

Today is the day!  New Moon day, that is.  I haven’t done a Dear Diary in a while.  A little overwhelming this past month. 

I still weigh around 150lbs.  I lost about 15lbs since I started this blog.  Woohoo!  I am seeing a nutritionist, who is also a trainer.  We will be meeting next Wednesday and will take workouts.

I have been keeping up with the workouts when I can.  I do back/chest and 20min cardio, arms/shoulders with 20min cardio, and sometimes legs (need to lose some mass on these) and try to run when I can and light permits.

I have been eating better than in the summer.  No more carrot cake.  I have been drinking more though.  I eat around my workouts and lots of protein. 

Let me know how your workouts and diet plans have been going!

Quick and Easy Breakfast Recipes

I couldn’t sleep in this AM (crazy, I know).  I have an 830am class and I was awake from about 4am on.  So needless to say I had a lot of time to make a big breakfast.  That is usually not the case. 

Here is a link to Women’s Health and recipes for quick and easy breakfasts.  They include:

  • An oatmeal recipe
  • Waffle sandwich
  • Burrito
  • Mushroom cheese scramble
  • Something that resembles a dessert made of breakfast food
  • Omelet
  • Pancakes
  • Herb scramble
  • Egg and cheese sandwich
  • Tex-Mex
