Man has it been a long week. I have always had digestive problems but my stomach has been really bad for the last 2 or 3 weeks now. I don’t mention it because who likes to talk about that? Then I got food poisoning yesterday! Today at the grocery store, I bought a So Delicious Coconut Milk Probiotic Drink. This is the first time I’ve tried it and it tastes just like Vanilla yogurt! Has the texture of a usual yogurt drink. I was really bummed they didn’t have the Chocolate flavor. I’m pretty happy with my purchase so though. I am hoping this will help my gut flora recover and get back to normal!!
On another note, I was doing really well with workouts! Rob just got me a new present, Brazilian Butt Lift! I was excited to try it and did the “Bum Bum” workout on Saturday. My legs were sore for days! It was really killer! On Monday, I just did some yoga and my cardio circuit. Tuesday, I tried out the “Cardio Axe” video which is basically just easier Zumba. I wasn’t in love with that video but it was fun. I really want to start the program! But…
I have that silly gym membership. I paid for it back in October and then craziness happened and I haven’t used it once! I paid through to the end of December so I’m thinking I need to use it next month to make it worth it. Which means a full review of BBL will be on hold for now.
I’ve also really looked at my food intake lately and I realized I am just fooling myself. I’ve been eating too many calories, just enough to maintin. I need to cut back just a couple hundred calories per day to kickstart some weight loss. I also need to cut back on certain things like Starbucks. Otherwise, I’ve been doing pretty good on the Paleo front. I’ve noticed that I no longer find certain things appetizing anymore. I’m indifferent to bread most of the time and rice is completely unappealing now. Wow, it only took a few months but I finally got there! Now if only I could figure out why my stomach has been upside down lately…
So I have a pretty basic plan:
There aren’t too many classes I’m excited about at the gym so I have to figure something out. I thought maybe this weekend, I would read up on doing CrossFit at home. I’m not sure I could handle doing it by myself with all the crazy terminology and deciding how much weight to use but it sounds like fun. Whatever I decide, I have to be ready to go on Monday!
Wow, this was a long blog today, lots going on. I just haven’t had much time or energy lately to devote to certain things (like blogging). All I have time for is homework and research! I really cannot WAIT for this semester to be over!!!
Have you ever tried doing CrossFit at home? Do you have any tips or suggestions to get me started?
I almost forgot, my new medal came in the mail! If you run more than one Rock’N’Roll event in a calendar year, they send you extra medals. I’ve done 3 this year. This is the medal for doing 2 and I love it!!
