Vacation recap

I had such high expections on this vacation.  I came packed with gym clothes, tennis shoes, etc.  And did not make it to the gym at all!  The first few days in Vegas, my eating was on point.  And then things made a horrible u-turn.  I was eating at BJ's, at Breakfast buffets, Taco Bell, drinking egg nog, eating ice cream, pie, and all those lovely items!  Never the less, Fun was had! 

My dad bought a treadmill and it is now in the house.  I got on it for literally 2 minutes one day!  It kinda made me want a treadmill, but they are so big and so very expensive.  While I was in Vegas I saw an ad at Big 5 for roller skates.  It resurfaced my desire to want to roller skate again.  I spent a good portion of my evening looking at roller rinks in the area that I can take classes at.  I think roller skating may be my next feat!  I am excited to give it a shot! 

As you can plainly see I have had yet another false start on this dieting train.  I have yet again missed weigh in's, and have not been journallling!  Bad me!  Now that I am back home (Long Beach) I can return to the straight and narrow path!  I am putting myself on a liquids and veggie diet for a week.  I went shopping after work today, and I got some Brussel sprouts, zuchini and some yellow squash.  Can you believe the store was out of spinach?  What the hey day!  But I will spend my weekend making oodles of veggies so things will be prepared. 

Quantity wise, I did not eat alot today.  The 2 meals I did have were not good meals though! :0:

Breakfast:  White chocolate latte & Pepperjack cheese croissant
Lunch:  none
Dinner:  El Polo Loco chicken, side salad & BBQ black beans.

Thats all for now.  Looking forward to continuing my weight loss journey...will you come along? :0)  LOL!  Good night!


Thursday in Vegas! *incomplete post*

Hello Bloggers!

I finally made it to Vegas!  I arrived Tuesday night, after a long long delay due to the weather!

Wednesday my first day in Vegas was rather unevent.  I started my period and boy did I have back pain and cramps like you wouldn't believe.  It was a day of laying on the heating pad and taking pain killers, which really never killed the pain!

So Today Thursday...Started off okay.  Got out of bed around 7am.  It was not raining and the sun was out!  It was definately the beginnings of a great day!

     3 scrambled Eggs sprinkled w/ mozzarella cheese
     1/2 cup black beans
     1 Whole wheat Round

I finally got to try to spin shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited!  I finally made it to spin class and got a bike.  My first class in almost 2 weeks.  Since I am so excited I will talk about my workout before my eats!  Spin class as always is hard, but I got to try to new spin shoes.  I can feel the difference in my legs using hte spin shoes.  it was a bit wierd when I pull up on the pedal to feel the pedal be attached to my foot.  And I surprised myself..I was able to clip in on my 3rd attempt!  Yay me!

Okay to the boring eats for the day:

     20 ounce bottle of coke
     **don't ask, I can't even explain this one. 

AM Snack

   Went to Salad Bar @ Century City mall ate salad
     Romaine Lettuce, bleu cheese, turkey, mushrooms, black beans, olives w/ balsamic vinagriette
    Slice of Cheese pizza

    Atkins Protein Shake
Total Calories for hte estimation probably close to 1,700.  The pizza slice was huge, it really was, so I am estimating like 500 calories for the pizza and another 500 for the salad with all the toppings.  Sounds realistic don't it?
     60 minutes Spin Class!


Hump Day Blues - Dec 8th Recap


I did better with my eating today, probably becuase I was not feeling to great.  Feeling sick does cause me not to eat much.

     White Chocolate Latte
      1 cup of Cottage Cheese sprinkled w/ 1 teaspoon of flax seed
      1 cup of Raspberries

    1 Slice of Pepperoni Pizza

     3 pcs of El Pollo Chicken
Total Calories approx 1500
Fiber Intake for the day:  20grams

I did not make it to the gym again!  That will change soon. I am gonna get back on the boat!  I promise!

Tuesday Recap...

Howdy.  I have been meaning to update my blog, but I have been catching a serious case of the drowsies at night.  I keep falling asleep before I get to update my blog. 

So here is Tuesday Dece 7th Recap:

     White Chocolate Latte
     Pepper Jack Cheese Croissant

     Slice of Pepperoni Pizza
     Small chopped salad w/ italian dressing

    Tortillas w/ cheese

    I had really good intentions of getting to the gym for spin class.  But when I got to 120th street, my car would not make a left hand turn.  So on home I went! 

That was it, nothing too great or wonderful, but I have to be accountable to myself.

Hey Blog Readers...if I have any out there! 
Well as you can see this blog has not been touched since hte beginning of Thanksgiving week.  OOPS!  I am starting things back up.  I may have been down for a moment but I am not out!  Too much progress and improvements have taken place to quit now!  So I hope you are still with me for the journey...cause I am in for the long haul! 

Last night I got some thoughts about where to take Destination Fitness & Fit for Purpose.  After doing some research, I noticed the Small Business Administration offers classes how various issues about starting a business.  There is a class this weekend (Dec 11th) About how to start a business in California.  I think I may have to attend.  All the business courses I took, I took in Nevada, so I am so out of touch on what is required to start a business here in California. 

I am excited to report, if I have not already reported.  I have invested in spin shoes!  They arrived Thanksgiving week, so I have not been to spin class in a couple of weeks, so I have not yet tried them on.  This is another step in preparing me for Spinning Nation 2011, and to take my Spin Certification exam next year. 

So much for me to do in the months ahead!  Let's get ready to get Fit!
