Workout #19 down! And here's the pic to prove it:
|Oh the quality of a camera from 2006!|
|What is that thing?|
|Not liking my suggestion of sticking out our tongues.|
I always struggle to eat well when I babysit because people usually have goodies that I never buy! However, I feel pretty good about these choices:
|Veggie Straw and Hummus|
|Salmon Burger with some Mac and Cheese|
On Sunday I was back with my little guy:
I decided to take him to the playground (yay jogging stroller, boo single jogging stroller), but instead of walking the 0.25 miles there, I went the opposite way on a loop and sort of did an out and back. What's that? WORKOUT #20?!???? Oh yeah, a goal accomplished!!! I did 2.31 miles in 50 minutes. I will award myself a bento box that I have been promising and hopefully that is soon!
Well, now that I an unemployed, I get to do fun stuff like take SwimTot to school or daycare.
I hoped in the water at 10:45am and started on a set I had written down from my swimming book.
100 IM (individual medley = all the strokes)
4 x 50 kick, on 1:15
all of that twice
(who in their right mind puts butterfly the second thing on a warm up??? masochist! after 1 round of that I was tired! and those 50s kick -- no joke! I was making them on 1:10 = little time to rest)
12 x 50 kick out to or past the flags freestyle/backstroke on 1:15
(I usually kick out to the flags, but this time I tried to get further than I normally do)
8 x 25 on :55, your best stroke, focus on technique
(I focused on technique a lot in the 50s, I decided to do IMs and do them HARD. It wasn't pretty but felt strong)
5 x 50 freestyle/backstroke
Total yards: 2250 Total Time: 55 minutes
I subtracted 5 minutes from the time to allow for my breaks or times between sets. That's about a mile and a half, so it felt good to get that many yards in, but really I would not have come up with that on my own!!! I got complimented on my stroke, which is always awkward, and this time by a lifeguard. It's pretty much just awkward because I don't know how to respond beyond the normal "thank you". :)
Then I had about 20 mins at home before heading back to the temp job to finish up a few things. I grabbed some:
|Chocolate milk! Straight out of the measuring cup!|
I also had to throw some chicken into the crock pot quickly for dinner. And when it came down to it, this is what ended up happening:
I have an appointment with a "wellness coach" tomorrow morning. I think that is code for personal trainer, but hey it is free! I'm hoping someone named "Karen" can't be too terrible, but I will find out!
