28 Oct

so i canceled my gym membership this morning.  i've been going to the gym at work a lot so i didn't want to waste anymore money.  i'm sorta sad, hahaha.  but i will definitely be back.

5:00 – ran and walked for 30 minutes, then worked on back.
7:00 – 1 egg and some coffee.
9:00 – another egg
11:45 – my boss took us out to eat…and boy, there was some YUMMY bread!!  i think i ate a whole load.  then i noshed on a chicken gyro plate.
6:00 – dammit, i wanted to stay home, but i ended up going to the sharks game because tran's coworker flaked. i knew it would be fat city.  we ate at cluck u in downtown san jose. i made the mistake of eating curly fries.  i ordered a grilled chicken sandwich.  that wasn't too bad.  but when we got to the arena, my freakin' sister ordered the nachos, and i had a couple of pieces.  it was not sitting well with me.  i kept on burping and i almost regurgitated some of it.  never again.  i did not feel well the entire game.  at least the sharks won.  i don't think my stomach is accustomed to those type of fatty foods anymore.  so i should STAY AWAY!!!

Here it comes…

26 Oct

UGH!  I think the holiday season is starting to hit me.  I'm totally pigging out, and I even had candy.  I've been able to resist candy for almost a year now, but Halloween is starting to get to me.  And, I haven't workout as aggressively as I've been wanting to.  I was going to go for a VERY LONG RUN today, but now my throat is starting to act up, so I'm deciding to not do it.  I'm going to do a 7 mile run on the treadmill this week, and that should be good…I HOPE.  Damn, this half marathon is gonna SUCK, and I'm going to be in PAIN!!!!!  AAH!  But I should definitely run a lot this week, because I totally pigged out last week.  Maybe it's because mother nature is going to hit me soon.  And yes, I'm going to get it during the marathon.  **SIGH**.

woopsy, i didn't blog yesterday.  let's just say i had a lot of protein.  spaghetti, and a fat piece of steak for dinner.

5:00 – worked on shoulders and did elliptical for 30 minutes
7:30 – 2 hard boiled eggs with a soy chai tea latte.
11:45 – pigged out a sweet tomatoes.  let's say i had 3 blueberry muffins and some chocolate cookies.  i've had a major sweet craving and i couldn't fulfill it with my fruit lather because they are freakin' sold out at trader joes.
7:00 – peruvian rice with chicken simmered in curry sauce.  added some veggies too it.  i also had a piece of naan to dip with the curry sauce.  it was soooooooooo YUMMY!

20 Oct

hmm…this weekend was full of carbs and no exercising. let's see…i had bread and rice at the wedding, dim sum sunday morning, in n out sunday afternoon, and thai food sunday night.  i got up this morning though, and got a good workout in.

5:00 – worked on biceps and 4 SELF strengthening exercises.  then i did a workout called "jumpstart your metabolism".  warmed up for 3 minutes on the treadmill.  ran for 9 minutes with elevation of 3, speed of 5.5 mph.  hopped off the treadmill and did 10 squat jumps, 10 kicks, and 10 knee highs.  hopped back on the treadmill for 4 minutes at 6.0 mph.  jumped off the treadmill and did the lower body exercises(15 reps).  then i ran for another 9 minutes at 6.7 mph, and last 2 minutes at 7.0.  it felt good, and it was something different.
6:30 – banana and coffee.
11:30 – biked for 25 minutes
12:45 – shrimp louie salad from tj's
3:00 – almonds and cashews
8:00 – spaghetti with brown rice pasta.  the bad part was that i put two slices of fresh mozerella on it.  very cheesy!
