Wk 3, Day 5 (Fri, 9-Aug-2013)

. . No comments:
  • Praise God for enough sleep and nothing interrupting me.  Not sure if there was an interruption if I would actually wake up.  Also happy that my husband went to bed early, compared to when he normally goes to sleep.
  • Had a really nice time this morning in worship.  
  • Won't go through the gory details on my 80 GB iPod classic and what I tried to do to fix my issues.  It turned out to be the HD was bad.  The Apple store's solution after running some tests to confirm the HD was trashed, and said I could upgrade to a 160 GB iPod Classic for $59.  I took it because the least I could find that was around $200 online.  It retails for $249.  So, this was a real deal to get a new 160 for $59 (plus tax).  Chris was excellent at helping me, and I am super happy about this.  My 80 GB gave me over 5 yrs of a lot of use during my workouts, hiking, etc.  Praise God!
  • Did not have my normal protein smoothie after the workout because I did my workout right before lunch time and so I ate lunch instead.
  • Working on not drinking during my meals and waiting 30 min. after I eat to drink anything, to allow my my body to digest my foods without being impeded by the water diluting it.  This is a challenge because I've had the habit of taking a bite of food and then drinking something.
  • Got a probiotic from my friend for the kids to take, to see if it helps them rebalance the flora in their body and eliminate cravings.  Since I started this 4-5 weeks ago, and taking a good probiotic, I rarely have cravings.  
  • This is my 5th workout in 5 days and I feel great.  My body is not sore, but I am pushing as much as I can in each workout.  
  • Took my heart meds, hair supps, probiotic, MSM.
  • Drank water (a 48 oz QT cup) and a 42 oz iced tea from Carls' Jr (unsweetened).

  • Did electrical stimulation on my upper back, 2-15 min. sessions on the left side and 1-15 min. session on both sides as I worked.
  • Do and finish Thursday's remaining sub job
  • Complete Friday's sub job.  Only did 1/2 of Friday's work, as I started way late.

  • Get excess ring cut at Lowe's.  This ring is smaller and fits better.

  • 9:30 pm - 6:00 am (8.25 hrs) - I was awake for about 15 min. around midnight, but went back to sleep.  Woke up and still very tired, but feel so much better with more sleep.  I know you can't catch up on sleep, so it will take another night of good sleep to feel totally better.  

Breakfast Snack (7:00 am) - 2 scrambled eggs.  My 9-yr old son made this for me so I could finish up my sub job from yesterday.

Lunch  (1:15 pm) - romaine lettuce, 3 radishes & 1/4 red onion chopped tossed with the cilantro-lime dressing and a large piece of chicken tender from last night cut up.  Simple salad.

Dinner (6:15 pm) - quesadillas made by the kids - cheese, 2-10" tortillas, shredded pork, cilantro & sour cream.  I ate 3/4ths of this.  My husband said it was a lot of food, so I stopped and didn't eat the whole thing, though, I wanted to.  
This overflowed a little off the salad plate.
That 1/4 is what I will be eating for breakfast tomorrow.  A change from eggs.

Total Calories = 529

Notes:   My times for each round were the best so far out of the 4 times I've done this workout this week.  My heartrates were just slightly lower than yesterday's so my body is adapting to the workout.  Zones 1, 3, 4 had higher times, but Zones 2 and 5 have lower time.  Zone 4 & 5 are anaerobic, Zones 1 & 2 are mainly fatburning.  I want a good mix of aerobic and anaerobic to allow my body to burn fat well after the workout is done.

This was a good workout.

I did 2 rounds of the shoulder exercises, but after the workout, I felt winded and dripping in sweat doing this.

During my cooldown, I wanted to further loosen my tight psoas, but my body wouldn't let me.  This was very painful.  My IT bands are still pretty tight, so it'll take some work to untighten this area of my body.
