Today I lazed around. I'm not proud of it, but I did. I ate alright coming in around 1900cals. I'm going to start trying to eat a bit more protein and less carbs. I have fooled around with my nutrition enough to know I work best and feel best with a slightly higher intake of protein and a little less carbs as well as lower fat.

I did end up doing Week 4 Day 1 of Couch to 5K. It kicked my ass! But to be honest, the past few weeks I've been trying to run/do a step class at least three days a week and that must have helped. I didn't feel like death until I walked up the steps to the house. It works out to be about 2 miles or just shy of 3 km in about 30 minutes. I'd like to get down to a 10minute mile by the end of the C25k, that is what the goal is at least.

Mini Goals:
-10 minute mile.
-Hit 130lbs by the end of August.
-Lift much heavier weights!

The Plan/Magazines

I love magazines!!! The Glutes issue and Fitness were for me and Men's Health, was for the boyfriend. But with Kellan Lutz on the cover it was for me too!

Goals are the best way to stay on track.

I bought a new supplementary issue of Oxygen magazine Glutes edition.

And now I am going to do all the butt, legs and back exercises in here along with my normal workout plan. I'm also going to up my cardio and eat a (little) less ice cream!

As for the food in my tummy so far today:
1/2 cup Kamut Puffs
1/4 cup All Bran Flakes
1/2 cup Light Silk
1/4 cup Pinehedge Farms Organic Light Kefir
1/2-1 tsp each:
Hulled hemp seeds
Ground Flax

Two slices spelt bread, couple tablespoons spicy hummus, spinach and tomatoes.

I also ate for snacks:
Some cucumber slices (say 10-12) with spicy hummus.
An organic valencia orange (mmmmm!)
3 scrambled egg whites!
Coffee with splash of soy...
And a 90 calorie pack of quacker rice cake things.

Edit: That is approximately 840 calories. My goal is 1500-1800!
