Today was not a good food day. I went ahead and celebrated the 4th today. I ate too much bbq sauce with the ribs. I know better. I know to only put what I want on my food, and leave the container of sauce in the kitchen. Instead, I have the container sitting there by my plate, and I dipped my ribs before every bite. Also, after this weekend, I don't want any more watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew. I overdo it on the melons. (snicker) Seriously, I enjoy them so much that I keep sneaking in bites between meals and snacks.
Next week will be better. I will start working out again. Actually, I'm going to try and get some walking in on Sunday. That will give me an opportunity to get a minor warm up in before working out on Monday.
It's amazing how guilty I feel about this stuff. I tend to eat best when I'm exercising often. So, no more melons for a while, and a lot of exercise next week. I also hope that I still manage to lose a few pounds this week. Sunday I will drink tons of water and have an extremely good food day.
So, here's the exercise plan for next week: Monday: Legs + swim 20 laps, Tuesday: walk 1 mile, Wednesday: Arms + swim 20 laps, Thursday: walk 1 mile, Friday: core + swim 20 laps, Saturday: walk 1 mile, and Sunday: rest. It's a drastic change from what I've been doing, but I will force my body to get used to it. I am stretching, warming up, and keeping my body hydrated during exercise. These next couple of weeks will be rough, but I can't wait until the day that I can walk 7 miles in an hour. I also want to knock out some of my goals and milestones.
Another quick note, my legs were really sore the last 5 days because of last Monday's leg workout, but they feel stronger and I find it easier to stand up from a sitting position. So I know all of this work is going to pay off. So, next week I not going to dread working out. I am going to think about how I am going to feel after the Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) subsides.
