I had a session with the Trainer Nazi yesterday in the AM. She knew from my Facebook post that I was in PAIN. So she was ready for me when I got there Friday at 8AM; to get me the right workout to help with back pain. She worked on (sweatly tortured) that area for about 30 minutes, and then we went in the reformer room (you remember the pics–different pain) for the regularly scheduled class time, and she kicked my butt in a back safe manner. Can I tell you that that workout almost killed me? I had barely had any sleep the night before. Early on I wasn’t sure if she actually made my back feel better or just bring my focus onto NEW areas of pain. 😉
I woke up Friday morning bright and early at 2:30 AM and never returned to sleep. I was so tired I wasn’t sure that I would make it through both workouts, but I did. I sweated like a stuck pig (I am guessing they mean like one bleeds because they don’t sweat–thus the reason they lie in the mud to cool off). I assume I sweated so profusely because I was tired and in pain. I was STARVING when I left. I had to control my food intake if I was going to go to dinner and dancing at The Club with Donna “the Trainer Nazi” and Dean Jones (he has pics of the evening too) in the PM. How to do this???? Don’t eat! Not even an option! I’m just sayin’ 45 minutes in the weight room followed by 60 minutes of reformer … not a CHANCE I wasn’t gonna eat — just bein’ honest here. I did OK, but not great in controlling calorie intake, I was just plain HUNGRY. I kept munching on some 150 calorie edamame. I couldn’t eat them all at one time (What a nice problem to have!).
I went into my closet to dress for the dance and realized I never made it shopping; consequently, I only own one shirt and one skirt that I can wear out. My undergarments arrived early in the day, and I was so excited; I would have proper fitting garments for the twins. NOT. I had underestimated the twin’s size, and we have to go back and reorder. I cannot take the twins out in malforming attire; this is JUST not DONE. Oh, well, I was going, and I would wear what I had, and I would have a blast! And we did have a LOVELY evening, clothing problems or no.
Here are a few pics of our evening.
Tom and Pam dance divinely. I am so jealous of their and Donna and Dean Jones’s skills! Mike and I have a LONG way to catch up to them, but we are going to try! Did you notice the smirk on Tom’s face? Hehe … he had just told me NOT to take his picture. You can see how sweet I was in honoring his request. He was a good sport. 🙂
Are you wondering where the pictures of my meal went? Or the pictures of my log? Ahhhh … well … that is coming up right now.
I tried to be accurate with my food, not exactly sure if I got enough butter for the butter sauce and what I added to me potato, but it is close enough. I rethought the cake and upped it on my calorie count but I had already taken the snapshot of the screen. This will probably cost me some this week in weight loss, but it was a great evening. I don’t think my dancing actually worked off enough of my calories to really help. I think this was a bit of a FAIL as far as the eating plan goes, but I did manage NOT to drink wine or have more than one roll. There are not a lot of the EAT to the RIGHT food choices on this menue, at leas not that EatRight teaches us about to choose from– outside the salad. I had one with dressing on the side (just realized I forgot to add that to the count. YEA! NOT!) haha! Oh well! I think we need to go salsa dancing after that kind of food. I guess I didn’t want to lose bad enough this week. 😛
I have to say I managed to dance for a bit and enjoy a very pleasant evening; considering how much pain I awoke with Friday morning, the evening was grand. This morning the back started screaming at me again as I walked through a favorite box store. Ho hum. Donna … where are you????
Cheers …. S
