Default Jogglers February 2013

Apparently, me and potstickers don't mix. Doh, I did get on the scale this morning, its good that I did because a 4 lb weight gain is only 4 lbs, that I can get around. This month, I'm focusing on just eating my own home cooked food, my am cardio, and my pm yoga.

Tricia- I hope that you find our new thread.

Jane- How is your owies?

It will be below freezing tonight so I have to remember to cover the lemon and pomegranate trees. They are budding already.

Alisha ~ You will drop those 4 pounds really quickly. Great plan for this month. The owies are better. My right knee has a pretty bruise and the the road rash is going away quickly. My left knee has a nice big scab on it although the road rash around it is going way. It feels tight from time to time because of the scab but it is healing.

Hi Tricia.

I'm doing step this morning. I plan to do something this afternoon, probably some yoga.

Jane- Great job on your workout, you always kill it! I hope that you are right, and that the pound just fly away. I'm glad that your owies are getting better.

Tricia- Hi!!!

Hello ladies! Happy February! So glad January is over! Whew!

Alisha - Good plan to stick to home food! I love potstickers! They are delicious! Steamed dumplings are also a favorite! 4 lbs. will be nothing for you to get past!

Jane - Awesome workout! I hope your trees survived the freeze!

I just finished my workout. Did Cardio Supersets and the February challenge exercises. I do these challenges in group and I always end up dropping them myself while everyone else keeps on. I'm going to stick to this one! February is going to be my month!

Alisha - I'm going to join you in trying to eat more home cooked/prepped food this month, too. I eat junk too much on the weekends and that needs to change if I expect to get this weight back down!

Made another really surprisingly yummy raw meal on Friday! Chopped cauliflower and chopped kale tossed with 1 tsp. of rice vinegar and 1/4 tsp. salt. Set aside and chop 10 brazil nuts into pieces, toss into "rice" with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Not much for ingredients, but a surprising flavor! I had that and a few marinated mushrooms I had leftover from Tuesday.

The Sprout House has some great mixes for Valentine's Day and I think I'm going to order some! I need to get my sprouts going again, but I'm tired of my alfalfa, which is all I've been sprouting, and want to try some new ones! I don't have a lot of room, so I can't really do too many different ones at once until I get a stackable sprouter. I'm hoping I can budget it in to get one soon! They have a new terracotta one that is really pretty and only $45. It would be perfect for not having a lot of space and it wouldn't be an eyesore like so many of the cheaper plastic ones!

Well, I need to shower!

Have a great day today! Check in tomorrow!

Happy Sunday!

I took yesterday as a rest day.

Today was a 12 mile run. It was nice out and I felt good. I didn't fall either! YIPPEE!!

Alisha ~ Hope you had a fun step workout. I bet that will help in dropping the pounds.

Tricia ~ Great job on your workout. The trees survived. Hopefully we won't have any more days below freezing. Tonight it is suppose to be 36 but then it will be getting warmer again. Friday's meal sounded good although I am not a big nut person. I am just a nut!

Have a great day!

I also took yesterday as a rest day. I will go for a hike today. Its nice and sunny. I will be spending the day mostly doing home repairs and hauling trash. I will workout tomorrow.

Jane- Great job on your run and workout.

Tricia- Those challenges are always above my head. I hate cheap plastic pots. They are so ugly.

Happy Monday!

Here is the workout for tonight.

A Double Tabata - 40 seconds work/10 seconds rest - 4 rounds per station
Push Ups
Sit ups (of choice)
Weighted Squats
Tire Flips
Suitcase Deadlifts

I may have to sub the push ups. I can do them on my toes but sometimes fall to my knees. My knees are still healing so maybe I'll do chest presses instead.

Alisha ~ Enjoy your hike.

I am craving a smoothie right now. I made one yesterday (and Saturday) with Kale, banana, blueberries, peaches, mango and strawberries and some flax seed. It was so frosty and good. Yummy!

Hi Tricia!

Evening ladies!

Sounds like Sunday was a rest day!

Alisha - Hope you enjoyed your rest day yesterday! Although, all that cleaning and trash hauling seems like quite the workout in itself!

Jane - You too! I totally love my smoothies! I always make enough to have two, one for breakfast and one at mid-morning! So yummy! Great tabata schedule!

I did work out yesterday. What did I do? Oh, yes! Burn Sets CBS. Ouchie! Oh, and I did my challenge as well. It was 2 sets of 4 spiderman planks and 8 pullups. I like doing the pullups! Tonight I did a Zombie 5K training run. It was darn cold out there even though it said it was 30! It was windy on the water. It still isn't light enough to try the neighborhood by the office since there are no sidewalks. Good thing too! By the time I turned, it was dark. Funny how much nicer people are on the bike path in winter. Only a few hardcore cyclists out. That's probably why. We're the serious ones!

It's clam chowder for dinner tonight. My butt is still cold! lol

I'm starving too! Pups and kitty are ready to eat as well. Not sure what I'll do tomorrow. I'm staying with XTrain, but I'm totally going to be off schedule with the running. I was going to double up on run days, but with travel time and all the gear I have to take off, it takes too long. I'll see about tomorrow. Maybe I'll tack on one of those bonus 100 rep workouts Cathe added to XTrain. We shall see!

Have a great night!

Yesterday was a rest day too. I just felt bleh. I was sore from working in the yard all day. Today is a hike. I'm dressed, ready to go. One of the siding guys is going to be here at 9:30 am to give us an estimate. I anticipate spending the day doing data entry after he leaves. I want to do some yoga this afternoon.

I have turkey tenderloin to eat for lunch. I just have to cook it. I could also go for a smoothie.

Jane- How are those knees? Are they still itchy? Your smoothie sounds delicious.

Tricia-Great job on your workouts. You are really staying on top of them!!

Alisha

Good Afternoon!

I am doing an upper body weight workout tonight and some abs. I usually take Tuesdays as a rest day but mom's birthday is Thursday so I'm working out today.

Alisha ~ I hope you had a nice hike. I would have taken a rest day after all the work that you did. My knees are healing but still a bit itchy and they burn a little bit as the scabs fall off and the new skin pink skin is revealed. I still have thick scab on my left knee. Pieces have been coming off but I think I'll have it for another week of so. Putting Vitamin E on it has helped.

Tricia ~ Good job on your workouts. We are heading until another warm spell for the next week or so. Yippee! Hopefully it will stay warm this time.
