ChaLean Extreme - Week 10 - Thursday

Get Lean Intervals today. I was going to do a Tae Bo ab workout but we got up late (because I could not sleep last night!!!) and I had house cleaning to do now that my company is gone. I'll try to do it Saturday. My son was funny during my workout. He said, "Mommy, this is my favorite workout!" I should make his little butt get up and do it with me. I catch him doing the moves every so often - not during the workout, but during the day. I hope he'll do the Tae Bo Kicks (I think that's the name of the one for kids) with me when he gets a little older. Right now, he only has enough attention span for Transformers and Geo Trax.

Beachbody has a new workout coming out, called Insanity. Indeed. I must have it.

Thank you SO SO much for the comment you left on my blog - I really appreciate it and wrote you back...something loooong...LOL. It should've been a post in itself!

i'm going to check out this interview with Craig Ballyntine. I think I spelled his name wrong? Anyway. I know you use SparkPeople to track calories - did you do the nutrition profile at the beginning that tells you how many grams of protein, carbs and calories you should be taking in and kind of follow that?

Becky said...

I filled all the Spark info out, but I don't follow their guidelines for nutrition. Sometimes I wonder why I'm even there but now I'm just too lazy to start over with a different tracker.

Craig's last name is spelled Ballantyne - it took me forever to get it! LOL I love him, truly.

Hayley said...

When I filled out my info on SparkPeople it had my calories ok (1250-1500) but my protein was way low, fat was high (well...probably fine) and carbs were really high. I made some of my own adjustments. Do you go back and add up your calories at the end of the day or do it as the day progresses?

Becky said...

That sounds about the same as how they set me up. I track throughout the day, just to know where I am, even though it doesn't really matter in the end. I feel like I have to keep track or I will overeat. I don't completely trust myself yet. I went a day without tracking a couple weeks ago and it drove me nuts. My computer was out of commission and I did log everything once I got back online, but I was higher than I wanted to be. I do still need some deficit :p

Hayley said...

I haven't been tracking diligently lately, but I do kind of sum up my meals in my head. Every time I listen to one of JM's radio shows she gets adament about having everyone count their calories. I think the problem with me is that on the one hand tracking DOES keep me in check because I don't go as overboard on snacking when I count calories, and yet when I'm eating a ton of vegetables I get so frustrated calculating them all up and becoming so nit picky. I hate measuring out my cottage cheese and strawberries - I feel like that's stupid, but perhaps I could just guesstimate that I'm having about a cup or something. Who knows!

Becky said...

I think it depends on what you're eating. Fruits and vegetables and lean proteins - if that's all I ate, I wouldn't track any of it. But I do make some other stuff (homemade bread, higher fat things [like cheese], and some processed stuff. That's where tracking keeps me in line.

Hayley said...

Yeah I think if I track again I'm not going to count vegetables...that just becomes too much - weighing out carrots and green, leafy vegetables is a bit too much.

I'm off to a meeting at the Y - Friday night..NICE! not.. :)
