After my self-motivating post yesterday (thank you all for your lovely comments on it!), I had a semi-successful day.
Cleaned half of my room, got things sorted out with my boss (I'm teaching dance classes at a local studio when I head back to college), worked on director-y stuff (a few of my friends and I have started a new dance company at our school), went to the gym (FINALLY), worked a bit on a short story, read, and started online German lessons.
The gym was 45 minutes elliptical and about 20-30 minutes of upper body strength. My gym has a shite free weights selection so I use their strength machines, and WOW. I've gotten so much stronger since I was last there. Machines that I was previously having trouble moving 40 pounds on I managed to do 6+ reps at 50+ pounds.
I was feeling pretty good about the workout at the time, but I'm only a little bit sore this morning, so clearly I didn't push enough. Ah, well. Today's another chance.
...the thing I'm not particularly pleased about yesterday was intake.
1 pm: A small apple, 2 tbsp cashews. (137 cal)
5:30 pm: Lentils with spinach, tomato, and tofu. (110 cal) * This was supposed to be double, but my mother decided after I was done cooking that she wanted some, so I gave her half of my portion.
7:00 pm: Baby carrots with hummus, 2 artichoke hearts. (155 cal)
9:00 pm: Pita with tomato and tofu. A small apple. (247 cal)
Total: 649 cal
Through exercise: -460 cal
I hate that I had the pita, and I hate that I ate so much so late. Today's a new day.
It's 6:30 and I've been up for 3 hours already.
I woke up at 3:30 and tried to go back to sleep, but my mind was too filled with choreography ideas, so I've been up for a while trying to flesh those out a bit more.
Goals for the day:
Intake under 650
Solidify fall choreography concept
Read (a book. not blogs.)
Clean the rest of my room
I hope you lovelies have a successful, happy day. <3
