Not Epic Fail…But Definite Fail

2 Jun

I don’t know who I am more annoyed at, google map, my gps or myself… I suppose I have to be most annoyed at myself since I relied on the first two but who likes to be annoyed at themself?? ๐Ÿ˜›

I was all excited to go to Boxerfit class tonight, I was dressed a good 45 minutes before I had to leave and raring to go! How sick is that? Being excited to go have your ass kicked? lol. I think mostly I was excited to earn exercise points so I could eat some sort of treat this evening but hey, least I was wanting to go…

Well, google map said it was a 21 minute drive, ok that’s fine, I left 30 minutes before class started just to be on the safe side. So there was my first mistake, trusting google maps time estimate. Then my stoooopid gps took me quite possibly the worst route to get to the gym so I got stuck in massive traffic, had to take weird loopy roads instead of more direct roads and the route it chose took 45 minutes instead of the 20 google map promised me. Second mistake, trusting the gps to take me the fastest route. The third mistake was believing both pieces of technology would get me where I needed to go in time. sigh.

Guess who missed their Boxerfit class tonight because she was 15 minutes late? Yup. Me. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ sadness.

See, with the classes you are given a punch card that gets, well, punched (duh!) everytime you go. The first 20 minutes or so of class are super intense cardio. I didn’t want to use one of the punches on my card when I wasn’t going to get to enjoy (enjoy??) the entire class and miss the main chunk of cardio, it didn’t make sense to me. shrug.

The classes are held at three different gyms, they rotate, and this was my first time going to this location, now I know that next time I hit up this location I have to leave even earlier just in case.

My great plan to exercise at least three times this week has now gone out the window, oops! I hiked on Tuesday and was supposed to Boxerfit today and then tomorrow is Dragon Boating – it seemed like such a perfect plan…ah well, plans change. shrug. ๐Ÿ™‚ I might go for a hike tomorrow before Dragon Boating, I love the boating but it really only (only??) works the core and arms and I want more of a full body work out and since I will have the time I might as well hike – this is of course assuming the rain stops cause no matter how much I want to get in shape no way am I hiking in the rain – that’s soooo not my thing. lol.

Today I ate:

29 grams Special K = 2 points

1/2 c 1% milk = 1 point

1/2 bagel = 2.5 points

1/2 tbls whipped peanut butter = 1 point

1 banana =ย 1 point

1 apple = 1 point

1 pear = 1 point

4 pieces sushi = 2 points ?

2 c Butternut Squash and Red Pepper Soup =ย 4 points

2 dinner buns = 2 points

1 tsp margarine = 1 point

1 cheese slice = 1 point

1 slice weight watchers fruit pie = 4 points

Total points eaten = 23.5

Ok, yeah, I went over, and I didn’t exercise and I know I shouldn’t go over but I’ve barely used any flex points this week and I really wanted that slice of pie! lol.

If I snack throughout the day (the healthy way) every three hours or so I never get super crazy hungry and am able to make healthy, smart food decisions. But today my timing was off so while I was driving back from my failed attempt at going to Boxerfit class I started feeling hungrier and hungrier, this city is full to overflowing with fast food joints, restaurants and shops. You wouldn’t believe how many places I drove past that had food that I so wanted to stop at cause I felt incredibly hungry and didn’t want to wait until I got home and got something cooked…when I am hungry the wait time for cooking something myself seems unbearably long and torturous. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Afterย I ate my soup and dinner buns for dinner I still felt really hungry, hence my inability to save my slice of pie until tomorrow. shrug. I think though, going over 3.5 points isn’t gonna kill me…and a bunch of the food I ate today was healthy – the fruit, the soup, um, the milk in my cereal? lol. So at least some of my points were used for worthy foods. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m going to go post the recipe for the weight watchers pie on my recipe pages – check it out, it’s super easy to make and way tasty. ๐Ÿ˜€
