I worked out on the treadmill with Paul Plakas again tonight. You know what, he's got a really cute smile, but man, he is hard as nails. He does not give an inch!!!
So I did 30 minutes and 1.33 miles which is .08 miles more than yesterday in the same time. And after dinner, I'll do Day 2 of the The Biggest Loser 30-Day Jumpstart workout.
The treadmill and aquafit are the only two forms of exercise that I have ever seemed to stick with consistently.
The one thing I HATE about it though is that sweat falls into my eyes and damn, it stings! My hair is just above shoulder length but is cut in reverse layers - so the front is longer than the back - which means i can tuck the front behind my ears but it is too short to put up out of my eyes. Ideas, people! I need ideas! I usually keep a facecloth on the treadmill to wipe my face as I go along and I sweat - ALOT!
Dinner tonight is a homemade turkey burger and some pan grilled zucchini.
I am working on my own version of something like Arnold's Sandwich thins for 1 point each. I love Arnold's and when I go to Buffalo I'll buy 4 packages at a time and freeze them. I use them for everything; toast, in place of burger/hotdug buns, in place of bagels, for sandwiches, for mini pizzas. However, there are alot of "artificial" ingredients in them and I think I've been working on recreating my own version for 1 point with no artificial ingredients or even 2 points would be acceptable to me if it was a clean, natural, whole food. I'll keep you posted.
A few months ago, I made my own version of Larabars - loved them. A little too much. They are very, very high in points and high in natural sugars and since I am diabetic, they are too much of a temptation to have "in the house"....so I stopped making them.
Off to read a bit before dinner.
