Sprints- I was really not feeling spunky, confirmed by the fact that dd1- 10yo beat me, she never beats me unless I'm off my game. In race 2 I had ds push dd3 in the stroller(for a handicap, he always beats me!) and I smoked everyone and was cheering, come to find out the dog tripped dd1 and ds nearly toppled over w/ the stroller. Oops!
Kettlebell - Rows, Goblet Squats & Swings- man it totally kicked my butt, just as hard as Monday for sure but I'm not as sore.
Food: Keeping on, keeping on. Mostly paleoish because that works for me. I'm measuring servings and not getting seconds. I have planned snack times at 10:00 am/3pm, I skip those if I'm not hungry but usually have at least 1 snack a day. Sometimes I have treats like dark chocolate. Sometimes I eat chips. I eat about 2000 calories a day, maintenance for me is around 2500ish. I've learned if I try to go to 1800 I crash, it is too far below my TDEE. Even though the calorie calculator says I should gain weight at this level of intake I know I do not.
My thyroid levels are good the last I checked. I should be able to lose weight, so I'm going with positive thoughts and trying not to think of how annoyed I am that I have to lose the same weight again b/c my dang blasted thyroid. I did learn the lesson that I need to have my levels immediately tested when I start packing on pounds, if I had done that instead of waited I wouldn't have continued to gain for 7 months.
b: scrambled eggs (3), 3 slices bacon (trimmed fat), 1/2 potato homemade hashbrown
l: hamburger patty on lettuce w/ bbq sauce (I wasn't feeling very hungry- breakfast was late and very filling)
s:apple; 1/2 serving dark mint chocolate
d: homemade chicken fajitas- pinto beans; baked chicken fajitas w/ peppers & onions, chopped lettuce, & homemade guac
Today is either smoothie OR apple w/ pecans, coconut & almond milk (I alternate b/t that and eggs w/ bacon)
lunch will be leftover fajitas or chili
supper will be roasted chicken w/ mashed potatoes and green beans
Following links this am I came across this study on HIIT (or HIIE) and fat loss and insulin resistance.
Very intriguing stuff. I've read some about HIIT before but not lately. I knew sprinting/going all out was good for you but I've never followed a set protocol, I think I'll give the Wingate protocol a go on Fri. In the lab they do it specialized cycle with resistance. I'll just time my sprints and aim for 4-6 - 30 sec. (usually I do 2-4). I never time my sprints, we do different lengths on different days, but I think I can go 30 seconds I guess we'll see!
Today's plan- Easy walk- hopefully, we will get a decent one today, we've been running behind every morning this week, last weekend was hard on us, too many late nights. I sure hope we can get caught up this weekend.
