Vacation

So I had a plan to workout on vacation. Things DID NOT go according to plan. Yes there was lots of walking and such, up and down Huntington Beach Pier, but that was the extent of the exercise. I didn't eat a whole lot which I know is not good for me but at least i didn't intake as many calories as I could have.

I did however wake up this morning and go to the gym to go to my aqua fit class. Tomorrow i do plan to go to the gym in the morning to do maybe an hour of cardio. We will see how my kne holds up. I do have to work an 8 hour shift tomorrow so I have to be careful.

I am waiting for the training sessions to start! Oh how excited I am for that to begin. Then I can really get down to work in the gym and loose some wight and gain some energy. Which brings me to my next point of my nutrition. I need to go back to eating healthy. Today wasn't so bad, I had a chicken Caeser salad for lunch. Although the lucky charms and fat free milk this morning didn't help. Dinner was mostly a disaster. I went to Baker's for dinner. Granted i changed the bun to a whole wheat one, there was still the half pound of fries and the 30 ounce soda. I reached almost 10,000 steps today, which is really good. 

We shall see what tomorow brings. I am aiming for 15,000 steps. I will let you know if I reach that goal!

Here's the thing...

I had a late night spurt of self pitty and then eventual get-it-doneness. It littereally  didn't last long. The next few days after  my last post I wans't doing anything to better myself and eat better or exercise. I have joined a gym, and the lucky girl that I am, I have a good friend who is paying for training sessions twice a week for me. I have a replaced but once torn ACL in my left knee. this limits me greatly on things I can do. Like squats, and lunges, which in turn makes me less able to use my legs and I need to get them stronger. it is a super vicious cycle. So, I have joined a gym last thursday. I have gone twice and have made a goal to go to the gym 5 days a week. Might as well hit it hard!! Although my boyfriend isn't to happy about it, its les time with him, I am doing this for me. I am not happy with where I am at weight wise. My back and knees hurt on a regular basis and now my ankle is starting to hurt. He likes me the way I am and i thank him for that but he has to understand that I am not happy with the way I look. He touches my fatty stomach and then I feel gross and way way un-sexy and I dont want him to touch me, and that starts a whole thing between us.

So today is day 1 of my vacation. I don't get a whole lot of vacation time and when i do I have to take unpaid days of from work. YAY for working at a family owned business!! :-/ So Today since my reservation isn't ready we are going to go run a few errands i never have time to do. I will make it to the gym today for the aqua-fit class. And when we are at the resort I do plan on walking at least a mile on their treadmill. There is also my annual bike ride to the pier. I usually do this around sunset so that it isn't to hot.

The main thing i need to do is get my food on track and then from there I will be golden. i really want to hit the nutrition hard when I get back from vacation. I am going to try to be as good as possible but there is a trip to naugles in the works. My father used to work there and although he passed awa olmost 21 years ago i feel i should go there to honor him. (Iknow I am a wierdo!)

WISH ME LUCK!
