I Need a New Activity!

30 Sep

Today was my last sword fighting class, sadness. Last week I was kinda looking forward to the end of the classes, not that I wasn’t still enjoying myself but I was ready for a change, well today when it was all over I was a little sad. I guess I got used to going there twice a week and learning how to skewer people. lol. It was a decent workout, more toning the upper body then cardio but that’s ok, who doesn’t want some toning? Anyways, it is over and I need to find something to replace it with.

I was looking at a class called Yogilates (a combo of pilates and yoga), but it’s only once a week and the only time I would be able to go is early saturday morning – uh, No! Sooo…what else to do? It has to be fun, burn calories, happen twice a week (maybe three), be in the evenings, not be expensive and not last too long (cause I get bored). Anybody have any suggestions?

So far I have thought of bikrams yoga, pole dancing (that was a suggestion from a friend) and um, well that’s it. I don’t want to go to a gym cause it’s just the same thing over and over and I’ll be way bored. There is a bikrams place near me but it’s over $100 a month and I can’t afford that. I haven’t researched the pole dancing yet…who knows what’ll pop up on my google screen when I type that search in! lol. Maybe there is a walking club out of  The Running Room that is near me…but weather is about to turn cold and rainy for winter so do I really want to go walking in that??

Hopefully I will come up with something soon, I don’t want to go too long with out some form of exercise activity. Well, ok, that is a lie, I would rather not exercise at all but since I have to I might as well find something sooner rather then later. Otherwise I will get out of the rhythm of doing anything exercise-y and it’ll be that much harder to start again.

Today I ate:

29 grams honey nut cheerios = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 banana = 2 points

1 plum = 1 point

1 salad = 0 points

1 tbls Three Cheese Ranch dressing = 1 point

1 Smart Ones Creamy Rigatoni with Chicken and Broccoli = 5 points

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

2 triangles laughing cow cheese = 1 point

1 sweet chili and citrus salmon steak = 3 points

grilled veggies and corn = 0 points

1 piece bread = 1 point

1 tbls Nutella = 2 points

1 tbls light Peanut Butter = 2 points

Exercise Points earned = 3 points

So, I ate 24 points today, that is 22 daily points and 2 out of my 3 exercise points. I didn’t mean to leave a point behind (never leave a point behind! lol) I just miscalculated and thought my snack would use up the last of my points. Oops! By the time I had my snack and realized I left a point behind it was too late at night to eat anything else and really, there isn’t anything I want. shrug.

I am a tad concerned for tomorrow, I have no yogurt, no cottage cheese, almost no fruit, no salad…I haven’t made any soup or yams so I have no leftovers…this could cause a slight food emergency when I am at work…should leave me with a bunch of points at the end of the day though so I s’pose I could just deal with eating a smaller amount then normal during the day then eat a nice big indulgent dinner…we’ll see. I am gonna raid my cupboards and see if I can find something to make now that is uber fast and I will take that.

If anyone has any suggestions for an activity that meets all the requirements I listed above pretty please with a cherry on top share the knowledge, otherwise I may end up learning how to pole dance and who knows where that could lead! Cause ya know, a fat girl in baggy clothes working the pole is oh-so-sexy. 😛 hahaha
