After Saturday's food tour I surely didn't expect to be posting this. In fact we joked that I may end up doing Weigh in Friday this week BUT I'm down 1.2 lbs. YIPPEE!!! I haven't mentioned this but I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that not long after I went to sleep Saturday night I woke up deathly ill. I really hate to puke but I did feel better. TMI, I know. I didn't sleep good either. I'm guessing the 2 back to back cups of coffee at 7:00 didn't help. Needless to say aside from Mass & grocery shopping I was pretty useless Sunday. I felt a little queasy every time I ate & I ate stuff like oatmeal. I hope this isn't a sign that I'm too old to hang.
Later in the day Sunday my sinuses started acting up. Lovely. Of course as soon as I laid down to go to sleep the coughing fits started. I didn't get much sleep Sunday night either. When the alarm went off at 4:45 for my run I did NOT get up. I did run this morning & it was rough. Although, it wasn't my slowest. It was hot & muggy & every step I took was just hard. I think it has something to do with not running since Friday. Apparently, my muscle memory sucks.
I wasn't able to leave work early Monday to go to Yoglates. Every other Monday my co-worker has a hair appointment & she leaves early. Considering I had self medicated myself with Mucinex & I was still feeling queasy every time I ate something, I didn't want to go anyway. I did go yesterday. Summer is officially here to stay. It was 92 when class started & 94 when it was finished. If it's possible to sweat germs out of your system I shouldn't have any left. It took a lot out of me. I'm very much looking forward to going straight home after work today.
I have some questions for my peeps that work out. What do you do to tone? I thought after over a year of Yoglates I'd have a little definition in my thighs. It hasn't happened. Is it because of how I'm eating? If I flex my arms or legs I have muscles. We do a ton of squats too. My arms look better than they used to but I'd like more definition in those as well. I have either 3 or 5 lb weights that I can use on my arms. I don't remember which. We do a ton of push ups in class too so that's helped the arms. I'm also planning to make myself swim laps this summer. Any thoughts or suggestions would be great!
