Crazy Discovery Today – Lexy

Well …. I made a very interesting discovery today… I’ll get to that in a second.

Started the morning with my favorite protein pancake and bananas – 5

Headed up to the gym for 30 minutes of elliptical followed by Body Pump class! I have been feeling like my weights were heavier than normal… but never really investigated the reason why. I usually grab 5’s and 2.5’s along with the bar… during the work out, you add more weights and take away weights based on the exercise in the series… (that is what I had always done at my previous gym…) Today I finally noticed that the plates were in kgs instead of lbs! NO WONDER!!!! When I thought I was lifting 5 LBS on each side…. it was really 11 LBS per side!!!! And what I thought was 2.5 LBS was actually over 5 LBS! So, it’s pretty cool because I have been lifting WAY more than I was used to!!! But it wasn’t a conscious decision…. Makes me wonder in what other areas of my life, I’m holding back when I COULD BE DOING MORE?!?!?! +13 Activity Points

After the gym, I got to spend a few hours with my nephew! Cyndi is out of town and he has been spending most of his days with Carman and Gabe… but I got a chance to have him today while Gabe was in school. He’s so cute and we enjoyed breakfast together. Eggs and Turkey Sausage – 4

A little later, I was super hungry and tried a new variety of Zone Bar – 5

Then I had some half the fat ice cream – 6

Cole and I headed down to the park. This little green character was waiting for my at the top of the slide! Scared the crap out of me! Cole and I chased him around the play scape for a while.

Wheat Thins – 4 (I REALLY need to get to the store and I was feeling super snacky)

Crock Pot Chicken and Wild Rice (leftovers)

I’m heading out to play Rook with some new friends. I have never played…. not sure what to expect! :)

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
