The Headache

Didn't get in a workout yesterday. Got up, did a lot of things around the house, played with the dog, played with the kids, tried to take a nap (that didn't workout very well), got up and decided I'd try my hand at cooking some chicken. If you know me at all, you know that I do NOT cook. But I realize that with that being the case, my family isn't eating the stuff we need to be.

So, I got up from the "nap" and got on my computer. I looked up "oven baked chicken" and found a recipe that said EASY! I just knew that would be the one. Thankfully we had everything that was required. Chicken, melted butter, and Saltines. And I made "Saltine encrusted baked chicken". And it turned out WONDERFUL. I also made a side of whole grain spaghetti with Ragu sauce. Not the healthiest thing ever, but better then pizza that's for sure.

We then took the kids to the park, and that was where it started. The HEADACHE. I'm not one that can just sit and watch my kids play. I love to play with them. And they enjoy that too. But in the middle of doing that my head started pounding. Got home about an hour later and took some Excedrin. Yeah...that didn't touch it. I laid down in my bed with all the lights off in agony. Decided to take something else. So I took some medical grade Motrin. That too didn't have much effect. But I was able to finally go to sleep. Had a horrid night of sleeping for short periods of time, then waking up and just hurting. Almost decided to head to the ER, but honestly didn't want to have to pay that kind of bill. If I don't feel any better tomorrow, I'll be going to the doctor. I can't function with this kind of headache.

So, no workout. But I'll still list my foods of I remember them. lol

1 bowl of splenda brown sugar and cinnamon oatmeal (see, I did it!)
I have no recolection what I ate for lunch
1 Saltine encrusted split chicken breast
2 12oz 1/2 fruit punch 1/2 diet 7up drinks
1 23.7oz water
5 pieces of strawberry twizzlers (this was when my head was pounding and I needed something to make me feel better)

so....some better...not great...but better. :)

Once More With Feeling

Once again I start on this grand journey of fitness. After much sickness (again) I'm back to the grind. I won't be doing P90X at this time. My immune system just can't stay up with the pounding that takes on my body right now. Sad but true. This time around I'll be doing a sort of jumble of stuff. Trying new stuff....revisiting old stuff...yeah....lots of stuff.

Today I started the 100 Pushup Challenge.
Initial test = 17

Day 1 - Column 3 (D1-C3)
10 - 10
12 - 12
7 - 7
7 - 7
9(max) - 13
total = 49

Not bad for not having done a pushup in over a month. :)

I also started the 200 Situp Challenge.
Initial test = 27

Day 1 - Column 3 (D1-C3)
15 - 15
18 - 20 oops lol
10 - 10
10 - 10
14(max) - 30
total = 85

I'll be doing these as standing situps from now on. I have back issues that standard situps just KILL. OWIE!!!

I also did some random Dance workout vids off Netflix. BLAH!!!!! I must be very uncoordinated. I was all over the place. I miss my Hip Hop Abs...I could actually do that. Pam, you do what I told you too and give me back my dvds....hehehehe

I'll also TRY and I do mean TRY to write down what I eat. I'm very poor with my nutrition. There...I admit it. You'll see....I eat what is on hand. Maybe if I write down all the crap I eat so I can look at'll make me stop and make some changes.

1 24oz (with about 1/3 of that spilled on me and the couch) french vanilla cappaccino
1 package chocolate fudge Poptarts
1 wendy's double stack w/ ketchup only
1 small wendy's fry
2 12oz cups of 1/2 fruit punch 1/2 diet 7up
1 23.7oz bottle water

that's it so idea about supper. It's Friday...maybe pizza.

Yes I know my nutrition is my weakest point. But I've already planned on one thing that will be headed out of my diet. I'll be eating Splenda brown sugar and cinnamon oatmeal for breakfast from now on, instead of the Poptarts. I love Poptarts. When I was so sick, they were the only thing I could eat without feeling like I was going to throw up. But I know they're not good for me. *sigh*

Onward and upward from here. The Truth is Out There. ;)
