Yesterday I had the day totally off and I took the kids to the zoo. They loved it! We met some friends there who have a season pass and they were able to get us in and we got to go for free; even better. I knew there would be no good choices for food so I packed us all a lunch. Some things I packed:
- Peanut butter and agave sandwiches on deli thin bread (I ate a half)
- Cheese sticks
- Squeeze yogurts (for the kids)
We just munched on all of our goodies and had a great time. I swear everyone at the zoo was eating ice cream and I was very tempted but did not give into my temptations. Probably because my friend was with me and I know she would have held me accountable. It was a good day, we spent about four hours walking around. So, even though I didn't go to the gym I know I burned some calories.
Today has been the hardest day yet. I did great on my exercise. I did back and biceps and even did dead lifts with Travis; then I went to a full hour of high intensity zumba. But...there was a lot of food temptations today. The kids begged for a happy meal and wanted to play at McDonalds. So I got a kids hamburger (not too bad) but I did sneak a few bites of their fries. Then, Travis wanted to go to Knoxville. We spent the whole afternoon there. We went to a new store called Academy Sports. It was awesome. I got a new t-shirt and some goggles for the pool. I could have spent a lot of time and money in there but we didn't have much time and we had the kids. I would like to go back for a sports bra and some new shoes though.
After all of our shopping Travis suggested we go to Brixx. I had a salad with balsamic vinaigrette and two pieces of pizza. This isnt your typical pizza. It doesn't have sauce just olive oil but then we had artichokes and sun dried tomatoes. I have no idea how many calories it was but I am sure it wasn't good. Tomorrow is my friends birthday and I was asked to make the cake. I made the frosting tonight and indulged in about two tablespoons! OOPS! I guess its a good thing I did all that cardio this morning.
Here is my workout today:
- Lat pull down
- Bent over deltoid rows
- Seated rows
- Alternating Bicep Curls
- Preacher Curls
- Dead lifts
- Reverse grip bicep pull downs
