Day One

Who says Yoga is supposed to be relaxing?  There have been times when I Yoga has helped me get really relaxed, but today was not one of those days.  I spent most of the time yelling at the TV for making me hold downward facing dog for so long I thought my elbows were going to snap or for making me hold a pose on the left side for longer than the right side or something along those lines. Better luck next time maybe.

So other than the brief but spirited outbursts at the TV here is how I did:
I didn't move around much at work, but I wasn't really thinking about that either.  I am going to try to do better tomorrow.
I drank 3 quarts of water which is about 2.95 more quarts than I usually drink.
I netted only 715 calories after my workouts and I stayed under 30g of fat for the whole day.  I was a bit low on my potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and Calcium though.  My multi-vitamin will make up for most of that, but I will try to do better as I go.
I did 5o jumping jacks, 25 sit-ups, and ran up and down my stairs 15+ times.
After all that I hoped in the shower and realized I hadn't done my squats, so I did them right there in the shower which means I accomplished all my goals today.  Ah, sweet victory.  Go me.

And I did get to watch Biggest Loser after all.  It wasn't a regular episode, but a "where are they now" thing, so Dish wasn't totally wrong.  It gave me some good ideas for goals I can work towards as my fitness level increases. For now I am really excited for the journey ahead.  Let's just hope I stay that way!

That was my day, how did you do?



  1. This is Hollie. Mike Kelly's wife. Yes, I blog stalk. Anyway, good luck with your goal. You've inspired me to do the same. I love the blog updates. I think I might do the same and copy your great idea. So thanks for the inspiration, and good luck again!

  2. Yesterday morning my alarm didn't go off so I missed Body Pump but I went to Zumba and I went to Zumba this morning. So far so good but I am grumpy! Craig says it's from eating clean and I'll feel better in a few days. I just downloaded something to track my calories.
