AA2 Week 1, Day 2 - Tues, 15-Mar-2011
SLEEP RECEIVED: 12:30 am - 8:45 am (8.25 hrs) and 11:30 am - 4:00 pm (4.5 hrs) ----> I was a bit out of it when I woke up and even after 2 hrs, still felt out of it so I went back to sleep. My body is sore (upper body), but hardly sleep over the weekend and getting back to working out after a month or so off, my body felt wiped out. Was surprised when I woke up that it was 4 pm and that I slept that long.
WATER CONSUMED (Goal is 100 oz):
Drank 22 oz by 9:30 am
Drank 22 oz by 11:00 pm (44 oz total))
Drank 10 oz by 4:15 pm (54 oz total)
Drank 22 oz by 5:15 pm (76 oz total)
Drank 10 oz by 6:45 pm (86 oz total)
22 oz by 9:00 pm ( oz total)
MEALS EATEN: P Day
----> I was still hungry after eating this. I had forgotten cooked zucchini has sugar, but raw zucchini does not. Cooked onions do not have sugar, but it does when it's raw.
-----> Anyway, today is a P day for me and eating the slice of garlic bread is a no no even on a P+C day. Guess I could've had it on my Reward Day, but since there was so much time between when I last ate, my resistance powers were down. Yes, I ate the garlic bread AND had the dressing. I'm pretty sure having the dressing blew my 15 g for the day.
-----> Even after eating this for about 30 min., which is a salad larger than I would normally eat at home, I was still hungry. Also, while I was sleeping, I obvriously didn't eat or drink anything. Anyway, not eating for 7.5 hrs when I would normally have eaten twice, this causes me to really want to eat - binge. Argh
----> This is my greens smoothie that was supposed to be drank this morning, but I like to combine this with my post workout drink. I was so out of it this morning, that I was not able to do my workout then, rather this evening instead.
----> I added more water today and it's a better consistency and tastes much better. I also prefer not to drink 2 smoothies in a day and though it's not ideal to drink this in the evening, I did do it after a high intensity workout. This smoothie seems to be making my headache go away.
----> 1 pitcher makes about 42 oz, depending upon how much water you add. This was very filling.
Meal 4 (10:30 pm): some sour cream & onion chips (unhealthy kind), popcorn with light butter (couldn't taste the butter), and a large blueberry muffin
----> This was not on my eating plan and once I had a few potato chips, I actually got hungrier. My kids were home and I was so excited and we we watching movies and eating this. Another no-no. I'm disappointed that I messed this day up by ending like this. Didn't think to take a picture as this was mindless eating.

Notes: I did the jumping roping outside of my house in the driveway with a 3/4" thick rubber mat I purchased on Craig's List for $20. It's a nice sized rubber mat of 6' x 4' or something like that. What a deal. It's pretty heavy. I have to slide it out from the garage into the driveway, which it probably weighs 40-60 lbs. The garage door is too low for me to jump rope in the garage.
This was challenging and after the first round, I was wondering if I could make it through the rest of the 5 rounds. I compared these result to those of January when I was doing jump roping more regularly. It wasn't too bad for not having done this in about 1.5 months or so. I'm still a very slow jump roper, but I made a more concentrated effort to keep my knees bent to help absorb the shock some.
I don't think I could've done another round, though, so these 6 rounds of the 30:10 intervals was good.
Cooldown: 5 min. walking around
I was sore from yesterday's workouts. My entire abs, obliques, inner thighs (adductors), upper back, pecs (chest), triceps are sore. It's not a bad sore and I'll probably be not sore in a couple days. This might be the cause of my headache as I know I drank enough water yesterday and now have enough sleep.
Still need to stretch out my calves from the jump roping.
