This week, I want to work out at least four days... I've been awful so far this semester, although better than last semester... I've worked out a whole three times in two weeks! Considering that I've had four swim meets in the last week, that's not so bad. I need to lose some weight and I want to watch some Pushing Daisies. Then I gotta decide what to watch next.

Ok so i failed at working out Monday and yesterday
But I did work out today after class. And, weighed myself first, and weighed in at 180.5, so I somehow managed to lose 3.5 lbs since Sunday.


Anyway, ran for 30 mintues (and 2.9 miles) today
did a 10 minute quick abs thing
10 minutes bike to cool down

another attempt by alli to lose weight begins today...
I went to the gym on base today, after dad dropped me off. I've been over the 160lb weight limit for my height since November (though, strangely, over thanksgiving I went from 176 to 170...)

Well, I did work out off and on over the underway, not as often as I wanted, but usually 3 days a week or so, except the week we were in Thailand. It's hard to run on the ship though, especially first week, when due to weather we had heavy seas...

Well, I weighed myself today, before I worked out. How much do I weigh? 184. pounds. That's the most I've ever weighed, that I can recall. So yeah, that's some motivation...

So, anyway, my workout:

warm up- the jog to the gym (about 5 minutes away)
stretching- 7 minutes
treadmill- 30 minutes (5.5 mph first 15 mins, 6 next 12, 6.5 final 3)
abs- sit ups, crunches (15 minutes)
bike- random hills for 15 minutes

I miss yoga...

after the near death experience last night driving out to mission beach with jenn trying to find a place to run, we went back out there today and ran the board walk. was i think 3 miles total that i ran. then we walked down to the first jetty and back. was a good run, will probably go tomorrow.

i had hoped to swim today, cause we gto done with the lectures by 11 and the lab took 20 minutes, but they ahd a system issue and it took an hour to get hte system abck up so i didnt get to the lab til 12, and by the time we got back to fleet asw, i wouldnt have had enough time to swim before they closed the pool. so here is hoping on friday havign a lab group that will let me have some time in there to swim.

i have a pool!
Or, access to one anyway :) there is a lovely pool just outside my boq :)

I swam 1100 today. I know, not much, especially compared to swim practices, but i havent swam in over a year and a half. at all. and my shoulders and ellbows were/are very sore from pulling my 97 lbs of luggage (not including my backpack and laptop holder) around two airports.

5x100's fairly moderate speed. alternated a few 25's with backstroke, but was hard cause the sun was righ above me and i didnt have goggles anyway
10x50's faster, including 3 sprints
1x 100 cool down. was planning on a 200 but my shoulders were like "we arent workign anymore ok good bye"

then i sprawled out on a lawn chair by the pool in the sun for 30 minutes or so listening to the corrs on my ipod.

the only problem with the pool? mon-fri they are only open 8-2, which means i wont be able to swim during the week. but weekends i can do.

oh, i also came back and did 100 situps

Current Mood: accomplished

had an hour long yoga class yesterday. was good, given that its been.... 9? 8? months since i last did yoga. Wish i had my mat, instead of shipping it to japan, the one i used was really fucking slippery, hard on my hands and wrists for downward facing dog. felt really good after, though the room was really warm, even the instructor was surprised at how hot it was in there. i stood up and literally had sweat roll off. which also didn't help my hands on the mat.

went for a run today, short, only about 30 minutes, through the neighborhood, with sprints at the end. wanted to get a run in, since i won't be going to yoga tomorrow what with taking jenny to go see HP :) also, had crap tonne of energy to use. this sitting on my ass all day at work thing sucks. its worse than being in school. at least at school, every 55 minutes i got to stand up and walk around.

Current Mood: awake

And still on 65 kg, yey it wasn't a fluke!  Now to get *belows* 65 kg....

Ran 5 miles today in 50:30 (finally getting faster! And the first couple of miles were SO much easier!)

3x15 pec fly

2x50 side crunches (each side)

And I'm down the 65 kg, even though I've not been to the gym since Thursday (Friday I was a retard, and left my gym trousers at home). So hopefully that means my diet is working.
