Uff Da

Any fellow Norsk/European speakers out there? ;-)

So we went to the gym. It's nice. There isn't actually a bouncy house, but there is everything but. They have arcade type games, McDonald's Playland-esque tunnels and slides, crafts, Wii, movies, etc... And there are 5 staff assigned to the kids, which is nice because there are a lot of kids.

The gym is huge. There are at least 40 elliptical machines alone, same number of treadmills. It's vast. I can't say I was impressed with the front desk people; they are rude. But whatever, I don't have to deal with them every day and the ladies that work in the daycare part are really nice.

I only managed 300 calories burned yesterday. I'm way more out of shape than I thought, but at least it's a start. I also didn't count any calories yesterday. I ate:

protein shake with rice milk, walnuts and flax seed for breakfast
banana bread and tea for snack
half a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and some chips for lunch
a handful of Cheez Its for snack
bowl of spaghetti sauce-yep, just the sauce, no noodles- and 2 pieces of garlic bread for dinner

I haven't had anything yet today besides my cup of coffee. I need to figure out what to eat. My protein shakes aren't as good without bananas and I don't have any currently.

I plan to work out 3x a week for now, so tomorrow I'll be back in the gym. I might take a walk with the kids later; there is a really nice walking trail not far from my house. So we might go check that out. I also have errands to run... Costco and Target, so we'll see if we make it on the walk. It's been raining off and on, and the kids don't have raincoats.

Today I'm going to attempt to count my calories, just to get an idea how many I'm blowing through on an average day.

That's about it, folks!

  1. Calorically, it almost sounds as if you're eating too little. But definitely could be more nutritious, hint hint. Just a suggestion!
