Healthy Thursday

Pretty happy with this week and how I did.

Weight = 276 (down 1.4 lbs from last week)

Exercise= 20 minutes on the stability ball.

Sweets= None.

Sleep/Mood = 7.5 hours, hoping to start the week off by getting my sleep correct.

Exercise= Arm exercises with weights, 3 sets of 10 reps with 8lb weights. I upped the sets by one this week because it is definitely doable. 20 minutes of Tai Chi, my hips and knees have been bothered a bit lately, so I wanted to stretch them a bit.

Sweets= None.

Sleep/Mood= Slept 10 hours last night, I guess my body really needed some catch up time. More importantly it was mostly good sleep.

Exercise= 20 minutes of abdominal work.

Sweet= 2 homemade brownies.

Sleep= Slept 9 hours, again good sleep. This weekend was definitely good on the sleep.

Exercise= Arm exercises with weights, 3 sets of 10 reps with 8lb weights.

Sweets= None

Sleep= Ugh, as always, Sunday to Monday is not good. I got a lot of good sleep this weekend so I wasn’t tired enough. I got about 5.5 hours of sleep and it was crappy sleep, woke up numerous times. As with most days when sleep is less, I constantly felt hungry which means I didn’t feel good.

Exercise = 20 minutes on stability ball. Arm exercises with weights, 2 sets of 10 reps with 8lbs weights. Only did two reps because my arms were too sore to do 3.

Sweets = 1 cup ice cream.

Sleep = 7.5 hours

Exercise = 20 minutes of abdominal exercises.

Sweets = 1 pudding cup.

Sleep = 7 hours, I feel like I should have gotten more, but we had things to do like grocery shopping!

Exercise = Going to do 20 minutes of step aerobics tonight, after I make dinner.

Sweets = 1 pudding cup.

Sleep = 7.5 hours and I slept pretty good too, which is the more important aspect.

My goal for next week is to integrate more cardio into my workouts, since right they focus more around muscle toning/building. I can definitely feel some nice muscles building in my arms though, which makes me happy.


  1. Well done!
    I made double chocolate brownies last week, and I almost died of chocolate overload! :o) I think I've developed an allergy to chocolate, because every time I eat some now, I feel nauseous.
    I've been good too, and was one my cross ramp. Have to do it more often though, for it to do me any good.

  2. Congrats!! I'm hoping to have a loss this week after maintaining last week...

  3. OK you finally got me guilty enough to start getting healthy, especially with my thyroid bump. I found this site that is free to track everything, (myfitnesspal) it is easy and fun, kind of like facebook for weight and exercise.
