TTBW P1 W1D5 Daily Log

I slept in this morning and missed my planned workout, but the good news is that I am almost over my cold! I think two more days should do it. I sucked it up and did my planned 30 minutes of Kenpo X last night, though I wound up snacking on enough raisins and toasted walnuts to bump my calories up to 2000 for the day and cutting my deficit down to only 280 calories. I didn’t have anything processed or unhealthy, but I had a wee bit too much of the healthy stuff anyway. Call it rationalization if you like, but I think my immune system wanted the extra calories and nutrients.


Oh well…Two 90% meals out of my four allotted ones so far this week. There will be another one tonight when I go to a local Thai restaurant for a friend’s surprise birthday party. I’m not sure how long we’ll be out tonight, but if we get back before 11 I am going to do my TTBW workout and half an hour of YF cardio before going to bed. The high intensity cardio session will have to wait until tomorrow morning, when I can sub it out for the YF I (might) do tonight. If we do wind up staying out late (for karaoke, hopefully), I’ll shift the workout in its entirety to tomorrow morning and do the planned Saturday workout (YF/Forza) on Sunday).

I’m just glad that I can breathe again.

Weight was more or less the same this morning at 141.8 lbs in spite of the nuts and raisins fest.

I did sneak in a 13 minute walk during lunch. I may try to do some bodyweight squats, lunges, and push-ups during my snack breaks, too. As Cassandra Forsythe said in her post yesterday, there is never a reason not to get a workout in, no matter where you are!

  1. Ciao Maggie,
    This is my first comment to your blog (why does that always sound like it should be admitted in a confessional?). I think you posted a recipe of mine a really long time ago – like 2004 – and I`ve been meaning since then to drop a complimentary comment about the coolness of your blog. Right now I can only sympathise because I too have a cold. As I`m travelling and have no time to laze around and be the wet blanket, I`ve discovered that Espresso and Actifed 3x a day really does keep you going. It doesn`t have a lot going for it that is pure and healthy, but if you need symptom control… yessss.
    Keep up the progress blogs, very good reading.
