Today I am grateful for my friends on DD!  

Well, the weather is not going to cooperate for my big hill climb today. I wouldn't mind a few sprinkles normally but I don't want to fly back down that steep hill on my bike when the road is wet! It's a sharp curve as well. Probably best anyway as I stayed up until nearly 1am watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. Hubby stayed up as well but still got up at the usual 7.30. So I'm a bit tired.

Instead I'll do the tae bo/jump rope routine I used to do before I joined the gym. I don't think I've done it since joining the gym in March so should be challenging. 

Workout:

  • 45 mins tae bo/jump rope (that's my intention anyway!)
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • squats
  • lunges with dumbbells
  • thigh master

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/blueberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  2 eggs, 2 slices turkey bacon on 1 slice multigrain bread
  • S:  2 clementines
  • D:  veggie curry & rice, salad w/walnuts, drink
  • S:  plain greek yogurt & fresh blueberries, a few squares of dark chocolate (this has been in the house for 2 days and would you believe I haven't touched it yet!!?)
  • Teas & water

TOTAL:  1417

 

Progress as of today: 33.8 lbs lost so far, only 5.2 lbs to go!

V on 07/28/2012:
I was so zonked from my day, I didn't make it through the entire ceremony..LOL I am sure you will do well with your Tae Bo class :) Have a good one!

Today I am grateful for fresh, healthy food and a husband who cooks for me!

If the weather cooperates tomorrow I'm going to try to ride up that very steep hill w/o having to walk my bike. I'm sure I'll have to stand all the way up. If it's raining, I'm going to do tae bo/jump rope (which I haven't done since joining the gym) and my squats/lunges/ankle weights routine. Sunday I am doing a very long workout at the gym while husband is in church and then doing his hour of laps in the pool. Mon - Wed we'll be gone visiting grandson in Inverness. 

I've never counted how many hours I spend per week working out - it's about 8 hours. About 4.5 hours at the gym, 30 mins for spin class, and about 3 hours at home with strength training. 

Workout at gym:

  • 35 mins spin bike
  • 15 mins elliptical
  • 4 sets of 10 on 6 resistance machines
  • cables/pulley for triceps
  • back lifts on half ball

Workout at home:

  • dumbbells (4 sets of 10 for each of 7)
  • planks (full and alternating)
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • abs-5 routines
  • bridge (for glutes)
Menu:
  • B:  porridge/strawberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  post workout - 2 oatcakes w/pb
  • L:  2 eggs, 2 slices turkey bacon on 1 slice of multigrain bread
  • S:  2 clementines, cherries
  • D:  veggie curry & rice, salad w/walnuts, drink
  • S:  plain greek yogurt & blueberries
  • Teas and water
TOTAL:  1452
 
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Progress as of today: 32.8 lbs lost so far, only 6.2 lbs to go!

supercheese on 07/27/2012:
wow youve got everything figured out!! Ive never thought about how much I workout either...hm...maybe around 8 too. Anywho, have a great weekend!


liza36 on 07/27/2012:
It's interesting to calculate the time spent working out. I've never done that. I hope you can get the steep hill ride in. That would be a nice accomplishment. Enjoy your weekend.


Umpqua on 07/27/2012:
That's an impressive amount of exercise each week, go Annie! I hope you enjoy your weekend and have a nice visit next week :)


hollybelle on 07/27/2012:
I hope you you roll up that big hill! I'll bet you will do it. As far as standing, I used to think never stand, but if you want to get up those hills AND ride effeciently you must stand. I have practiced riding standing all summer and it's now easy and I actually perfer it - even if I don't have to stand I do because it's effecient. Also give my bum a rest!


thenewMLE on 07/27/2012:
Go get that hill!!! And make sure to yell when you reach the top!! I do that everyday now when I get to the top of the levee and I used to be scared to stand up but now I realize I need it to attack that hill. 8 hours a week is impressive. I ride 5 days a week from 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes each day so at the most I am 6 hours a week. I do walk from the far end of the parking lot when I go if that counts for anything! Have a great weekend!


LeakingLife on 07/27/2012:
Hope it's a good weekend/upcoming week for you!


V on 07/27/2012:
Fingers crossed that the weather holds up for you, I know you will CRUSH that hill Annie..Great work with the time spent getting in tip top shape, I hope you had a good day <3

So knackered today! I think I did too much yesterday with both gym and the 4 mile power walk. Didn't get my strength training in yesterday and don't know if I'll manage it today either. I dragged myself to the spin class but was able to keep up with the instructor - barely. Since it's a nice warm, sunny day the class only had 2 other people. One tried to stand for a short time, the other not at all. 

Workout:

  • 30 min intense spinning class

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/raisins/crushed almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  post workout:  2 oatcakes w/pb, apple
  • L:  1 slice multigrain toast w/pbj, banana, sm glass skimmed milk
  • D:  veg curry & rice, salad, drink
  • S:  plain greek yogurt & strawberries
  • Teas & water

TOTAL:  1433

Progress as of today: 32.8 lbs lost so far, only 6.2 lbs to go!

You are killing it with the exercise, great work!


sweetpea1977 on 07/26/2012:

thenewMLE on 07/25/2012:
Sorry you had to ditch the brownies, but I totally understand. I have that same uncontrollable need at times and if it is in the house (frozen or not) and I NEED it - watch out!!! Actually that was one of the only good points after Katrina was that I had to take a job out of the house. I used to work upstairs doing computer retouching for photographers and I would RUN down the stairs to retrieve a handful of jelly beans and I would pretend that the run down the stairs compensated for the sugar calories. Then in a few minutes I really NEEDED more, so I would set a goal or finish point on the job, and once I reached it I would RUN down the stairs again for another handful!! This would go on all day until at the end of the week I had polished off 5 pounds of gummy bears or jelly beans! And then of course I would have remorse that night and when I would buy another bag I would tell myself that it would last longer next time! So when I went sugar free, I had to stop buying them because the cravings were so strong the first few weeks I would walk past that crystal biscuit barrel, lift the lid and just smell the empty jar. Oh, well, out of sight, out of mind!!!


hollybelle on 07/25/2012:
Sorry - I didn't explain my bike shopping trip very well - we were shopping for my friend - I bought a road bike last year and while I'd love to have another one - I'm sticking with the one I have for now! Grdat exercise - although I do not understand indoor cycling, I'm glad you do!


selina on 07/25/2012:
You made me LOL with your brownies account! I told my family that I refuse to buy things that are too yummy aka hagen das ice cream just because I can't control myself if I know I have it in the freezer. I hope you have lots of sunshine, today!


sweetpea1977 on 07/25/2012:
I have some ants in my trash can that will truly enjoy your friends' brownies. :)

Plan for today sounds great! Enjoy the sunshine!


moogy on 07/25/2012:
It's a nice time of life and a nice day to enjoy it:) Plus of course the fabulous garden in which to lounge around:) LOL

Taking a good idea from Moogy's blog......

Today I am grateful for my loving and patient husband, for my good health, for living in the midst of gorgeous scenery!  

Didn't get to my strength training yesterday afternoon, so did it all this morning. If the sun comes back out I may go for a power walk.

We'll be gone M - W next week so I'm going to do a workout at home (or outside) on Saturday and a long workout at the gym on Sunday while hub is at church and then doing his laps in the pool. 

Workout:

  • dumbbells
  • planks (full and alternating)
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • abs-5 routines
  • bridge - for glutes
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • squats & lunges with dumbbells
  • thigh master

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/raspberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  tuna/onion/celery/lt mayo on soya & linseed bread, pineapple
  • S:  1 clementine
  • D:  savory rice w/asparagus, mangetout, reduced fat smoked sausage
  • S:  plain greek yogurt & raspberries
  • Teas & water

TOTAL:  1276

Edit:  Confession: I got very weak and the brownies which kept screaming my name got an answer. Ate one late last night just before bed (and yes, you can eat them frozen). Today after lunch I just kept thinking about how incredibly good they taste, and I ate 4!!!    Disgusting! The rest of them are now outside in the bin!  All of them. They are my very favourite dessert and having them in the house is simply not possible, ever. 

 

Progress as of today: 32.8 lbs lost so far, only 6.2 lbs to go!

Hoping that the sun cooperates with you and NO RAIN! Have a good one Annie :)

Moogy does have a good idea - glad you are using it. Your workout plan for the next few days sounds good.


LeakingLife on 07/24/2012:
Good day there--keep up the good work!

Your entry re: brownies reminds me of a quote. I'll put it in tomorrow's entry.


moogy on 07/24/2012:
Nice to be grateful, puts you in a positive frame of mind I feel. Great job on the diet and exercise and also on the brownies. I always try to make things that don't tempt me for the children or else send the leftovers straight downstairs. At least you will know for next time annie. We all have our weaknesses, mine is Cadbury Milk Chocolate, can't have it in the house, it barely makes it home. Hence I stick with the dark stuff. Can't really binge on bitter stuff and it satisfies my cravings:)


sweetpea1977 on 07/24/2012:
Good for you on fessing up on the brownies. Its not easy to admit weaknesses, but it a takes a strong person to do so. At least you know now not to ever torture yourself by keeping them in the house. Im the exact same way with ice cream. I never buy it unless its for a birthday party (cake and vanilla ice cream is must!). Sad thing is that I can make even the most boring flavor taste good by adding common ingredients found in most pantries (dark chocolate chips, instant coffee, peanut butter, cinnamon, or honey). In fact, I love ice cream so much that I request a special trip to Coldstone Creamery for my birthday dessert. Dont even bother wasting money on a store-bought cake!!! Now, I love cake too, but Im the only one who knows how to bake a real cake and Im not going to make my own birthday cake...EVER! hahaha


Umpqua on 07/25/2012:
Good for you for throwing out the brownies - if something is that tempting and causing so many problems it's best to just get rid of it IMO! Hope you have a good one today!

Another dreich, rainy day! England is getting perfect weather. Not fair! Next sunny day I plan to try to ride my bike up a very steep hill which is a few miles down the road from us. I've never been able to ride all the way to the top and I want to see if all the spinning and the strength I've built up in my legs will help me do it.  

The scale is headed downward!  

Workout at gym:

  • 35 mins spin bike (intense!)
  • 10 mins elliptical
  • 4 sets of 10 on 6 resistance machines
  • cables/pulley for triceps
  • back lifts on half ball
Workout at home: My intentions are to do all these after my lunch is digested, but may do the large muscles tomorrow.  
  • dumbbells
  • planks
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • abs-5 types + bridge
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • squats & lunges with dumbbells
  • thigh master

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/strawberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  post workout:  2 oatcakes & pb
  • L:  tuna/onion/celery/lt mayo on soya & linseed bread, packet of baked crisps
  • S:  pineapple
  • D:  savory rice with asparagus and smoked sausage, salad, drink
  • S:  plain greek yogurt & raspberries
  • Teas & water

TOTAL:  1460

 

Progress as of today: 32.8 lbs lost so far, only 6.2 lbs to go!

V on 07/23/2012:
Right there with you on the rain, NO FAIR :( I hope you get a chance to tackle that steep hill soon..I bet you will do a fantastic job! Congrats with the downward movement on the scale. Have a good day Annie <3

Ah i bet you can do it! Lets us know how it goes!

Congrats on the couple of pounds down!!! Attack that hill!! You will feel so satisfied! I feel mildewed from all of our rain!! We have had 12 inches for the month of July and 8 of them were from Friday!! Have a great day and let me know if you get that bike ride in!


sweetpea1977 on 07/23/2012:
We've had two sunny days in a row after about 2 straight weeks of dreary rainy weather. Even though its crazy hot, its nice to see the sun again. I hope your rain goes soon so you can tackle that great big hill! Im sure all your spin classes have helped build up your quad and glute strength. :)

Congrats on the weightloss. Keep it up Annie!


Umpqua on 07/23/2012:
Congrats on your scale movement!

Thanks for the advice on lowering my cholesterol. I haven't really charted my foods & cholesterol levels. I thought sticking to a mostly fish & chicken diet with vegetables and fruits would be enough ( with an occasional sweet & beef thrown in!) Maybe I'm missing something. Good luck on the ride up the steep hill! I think I prefer the ride down!

Hope you lovely ladies are having a nice Sunday.

England got the warm, sunny temps today but we've got fog and drizzle.  Arghh...

Back on track but next week we're going to do two overnights up in Inverness to see hub's grandson who is now 3 months old. There isn't enough room in the house for guests now so we're stayiing in a hotel. This means eating out for breakfasts and maybe dinner but we'll be at our usual Wetherspoons where I know what the calories are of every dish. So I have choices. There will be pints of beer as well, but I'll try to limit those. If the weather is nice we can walk on the beautiful trails along the River Ness.  

Workout:

housework!!!

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/strawberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  2 slices turkey bacon, 1 egg on soya linseed bread w/6 g benecol spread
  • S:  clementine
  • D:  curry & rice, salad, drink
  • S:  1 of the browies that are calling my name from the freezer! But they are so tiny! I'd count 4 of them as a proper sized brownie - but that would be emm...600 cals - so I guess not!
  • Teas & water

TOTAL:  1378

Progress as of today: 31 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

V on 07/22/2012:
I hope you have a good day despite the fog and drizzle :)


moogy on 07/22/2012:

Edited yesterday's entry but had even more wine afterwards and also a couple of small ginger biscuits I found in their cupboard and shared a packet of crisps with hubby.   I'm not feeling extremely guilty as I've been doing quite intense workouts. 

The B & B guests were Americans! It was an American expat and her Scottish husband who live in Aberdeen, and her parents who came for a visit from Georgia. The mother and I had both lived in Knoxville before! We had some good chats!

It's nice meeting people but I really don't like the work involved in doing this. Our friends' kitchen is too big and too disorganized. Glad I don't do the cooking but my poor hubby had to time the dishes to be done around the same time, although there were warming trays. Today was scrambled, poached, and fried eggs; sausages, bacon, black pudding, fried mushrooms and tomatoes, baked beans!! And I got to clean up the mess!

Workout:

  • dumbbells
  • planks
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • abs-5 types + bridge
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • squats & lunges with dumbbells
  • thigh master

Menu:

  • B:  1 poached egg, 1 bite of sausage, baked beans (was very busy with the guests at breakfast so didn't get much breakfast and what I did have had gotten cold.  A guest had 1/2 of a scone so there were 3 1/2 left, but I left them in the house.)
  • S:  still hungry so had 2 oatcakes with pbj when I got home
  • L:  oatcakes and pate
  • S:  apple
  • D:  veggie curry & rice, salad, drink
  • S:  plain greek yogurt with fresh strawberries
  • Teas & water

TOTAL:  unknown, but not bad

Inversion Table example. I ordered mine on line for around $90. It helps get everything back where it should be - back shoulders, etc.


TheMother on 07/21/2012:
That's a LOT of food for breakfast!!!! Even though you had to handle the cleanup, in all honesty, I would rather clean than cook. I'm somewhat of a neat freak (so I've been told). Again, your friends should pay you a slight commission for all of your hard work (especially if this becomes a regular practice). Rest up!


V on 07/21/2012:
RYC I guess that one of the advantages of coming from a huge tribe of siblings, you kinda get used to making multi dishes at the same time..LOL

We're hosting our friends' B & B while they are away for the weekend (tonight and tomorrow for breakfast). And that means 'temptations'. Guests will want bacon, eggs, sausages. There will be lots of shortbread and cookies in the house as well, and wine. I will try very hard to resist what I shouldn't have!

I picked up baked goods for the guests after the gym today. Instead of donuts with breakfast I got them scones which I can resist. Got cookies and iced brownie to offer them with tea when they arrive this afternoon. Hoping they eat them all so I won't be tempted!

Workout:
  • 35 mins spin bike
  • 10 mins elliptical
  • 4 sets of 10 on 6 resistance machines
  • cables/pulley for triceps
  • back lifts on half ball
Menu: (what I will try hard to stick to)
  • B:  porridge/raspberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  post workout:  2 oatcakes w/pb
  • L:  cheese sandwich w/lt mayo, plain yogurt w/blueberries
  • D:  curry & rice, salad
  • S:  glass of wine  Edit: (1 1/2 glasses) Guests left 1/4 iced brownie, 1 large chocolate chocolate chip cookie.  I ate the 1/4 brownie, split the cookie in two and ate the smaller half, the other half went in the bin (with difficulty!)
  • Teas & water
TOTAL:  1464
 
Have a great weekend everybody!!

Oh man, that B&B always sounds so tempting. SCONES - I have trouble resisting those! I hope your guests devour all the goodies so there won't be much temptation for you. I hope you enjoy your hosting gig!

Good luck with your hosting duties. You guys are becoming "professional" hosts. Maybe they should give you part of the profits (just kidding)!

Yes, there have been temptations a plenty this week, haven't there? I haven't make those blackberry muffins, but I must make something with those berries - too good to waste.

I just love berry season!    I buy lots of berries every time I shop. Today I picked up strawberries, blueberries & raspberries. Also some cherries and apples and the usual clementines, bananas, and grapefruit. My hub eats about 3 bananas a day (part chimp!) and has started eating a pink grapefruit every day. He only eats fruit for lunch unless we are out somewhere.

Workout:

  • spin class - 30 mins but felt like hours! I swear this instructor loves to torture us! Except for warm up and cool down it's all super intense!

At home:

  • dumbbells
  • planks
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • abs-5 types + bridge

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/strawberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  4 oatcakes - 2 w/pb 2 w/pate, plain greek yogurt with fresh strawberries & raspberries
  • D:  veggie curry & rice, salad w/walnuts, drink
  • S:  glass of wine, packet of baked crisps
  • Teas & water

Yummy fruit haul! My boys (including hubby) are berry monsters, I have to move fast if I want to have a few before they get devoured. Have a good one!


supercheese on 07/19/2012:
Oh i love BERRIES!!! strawberries are my absolute favorite..Too bad there expensive here!


liza36 on 07/19/2012:
I'm with you on the berries. I'm currently enjoying strawberries, probably my favorite berry.

I got on a spin bike for the first time yesterday. Not as part of a class, but to do 10 minutes and see how it felt. I tried 3 seconds of standing up on the bike...I'm definitely not ready for that! I have to build up my strength. Good for you for getting in such an intense spin class.


selina on 07/19/2012:
Blueberries are by far my favorite!


hollybelle on 07/19/2012:
If your husband is part chimp, my family is a bunch of apes - we go through two or three bunches of bananas a week. I use on cereal and for snacks, and husband and daughter use in their shakes. Great exercise as usual. Enjoy those berries. My mom's neighbor gave me a big container of blackberries and I am gonna make muffins, I think!

Good going on your spin class--always good to be challenged. The berries sound lovely. Love the consistency you display daily--yeah!

RYC: Thanks for your concern--I do appreciate it! No chance of overdoing it here--I've always "listened" to my body. I think the key may be that I'm resisting the urge to "get back to X time of life" in favor of taking what I have now and working with it. So far, so good--guess time will tell! The 4-hr night was caffeine overDO--haha! Though it wasn't too funny at 3:45a when I was trying to bore myself to sleep with awful TV--yikes!
