NROL4W - Stage 1 - Saturday - Tabata Sprints & PiYo

I got my butt up before my husband left for work and hit the road to run sprints again - a 3 minute warm up, then 8 cycles of 20 second sprint/10 second walk, then a 3 minute cool down. It was just as fun and brutal as last week. I burned 82 calories (1 activity point).

After that, I started Volume 1 of Chalene Johnson's PiYo Fan Workout. PiYo is a mix of pilates & yoga. I did the workout without previewing it first, so I didn't know what to expect. Before the warm up was even over, I was getting frustrated. Not because it's difficult. I just wasn't in the right frame of mind for it. So I put it away until I can watch it first.

omelet w/ onion, green peppers, avocado & salsa, turkey bacon [2 pts]
chicken breast w/ green & red pepper slices & jicama

And this is where things fell apart. I went to a birthday party and ate a piece of pizza. Then another. Then a piece of cake. And after the party, I went to McDonald's and had a McFlurry. Then at Walmart, I bought 3 candy bars and at them on the 10 minute ride home. At home, I ate pretzels out of the bag and 3 dinner rolls. I feel sick. And angry. Very angry.

100 ounces of water and two mugs of coffee.

Tomorrow - tennis, if it's not raining.

Becky - I've been there... in fact I was there last week when I ate a half of a pan of brownies. You know that you need to just shake it off and reset.
You've done a great job so far, and are such an inspiration!

Thanks, Brandie! I just don't understand why this is so damn hard for some of us!!! LOL

At least it was just one day. Plus, you got rid of the cinnamon rolls the day before (that's probably more than I could have done). Hang in there! :)
