2 workouts in one day!!!

So I went to the gym this morning and got in my cardio workout! I did 45min on the treadmil at anytime fitness. What I love about this place is that they have monitors for every machine so you can watch tv and stuff, it has a port for a ipod or iphone and they have a lot of different programs to choose from and all you have to do is choose how long you want to be doing the workout for and it changes the resistance and incline as the program progresses. The nice thing also about these machines is that it doesn't try to get your heart rate every 30seconds! I hate when I am trying to do one of the pre made workouts and it wants to check my heart rate all the time especially when I don't use the handles or something. Anyway I know these things are not a 100% accurate but when I was done it said I burned 450 cals!! So if it is anywhere remotely close that will work for me!!! After my work out I went to my moms house and did some cleaning for her so that added into my calorie burn. I came home and sat around catching up on blogs and catching up on keeping up with kardashians. I always use to bad mouth that show and now I love it lol. I guess you shouldn't judge a book by its cover! Since I am doing my "two a day" plan or at least trying to I told myself I would be going to the gym again later in the evening. I ate dinner around 630 and took my pre workout supplements around 730 and headed to the gym at 8. There was only me and one other lady there which was awesome so I did about 30min of interval running on the treadmill then heading to this workout room that I am assuming is where classes are held.
Here is a pic of me in that room

Its a fairly large room all to mysefl!!!

I got an app on my iphone from "prevention" and they have a ton of different workouts you can do depending on what your goal is and what you are trying to work on. So today I did an arm work out and abs. I was there about an hour and half. I probably could of kept going but I didn't want to over do it. It's funny how sometimes it's so hard to get me to the gym but when I get there its hard to get me to go!! I'm going to sign up for sure tomorrow since Thursday is the last day of my free two week membership. It's so nice having the gym so close to home and having hubby less then a few mins away if something were to happen. I am hoping to hit my ww 5% goal by next Friday which would put me at 161.7 just in time for vegas. Going to vegas kind of freaks me out because the next two weeks there are no distractions and nothing that will make me go off plan and if I hit this goal what am I supposed to do when I am up there? eating healthy isn't really an option not drinking isn't really an option any tips???

Speaking of food here is my eats for the day

egg whites + 1 egg with chiken sausage and french toast

morning snack of grapes these were amazing

After workout snack was a banana

Lunch corn toritilla's with chicken, great northern beans, olives, cheese and buffalo sauce with a side of steamed broccoli and cheese

I forgot to take a pic of dinner but I had chicken, with ff cottage cheese, and steamed zuchinni with a glass of milk so delicious I only went over my pts today by 2 no biggie everything was so delicious and I was full the entire day!!! What did your daily meals consist of??


  1. love your site! just joined weight watchers last week!!
