I had a hard time sleeping last night and didn’t fall asleep until after 4am. I got up at 10,ran a few errands  and came home and chilled.  I had some lunch and  a nap and went to Burn class.  

From the Healthworks site (explaining Burn)
Join us on the treadmill or outside for a fun and effective workout designed to challenge all fitness levels. Enjoy the benefit of group personal training led by experienced, certified trainers. Heart rate monitors (provided) or personalized "zone" cards ensure the accuracy of training zones and calories burned. Enjoy upbeat music (please bring your own headphones) while you work between treadmill intervals and strength training circuits to enhance your routine and maximize your workout efficiency. The results are your reward.

I challenged myself as much as I could on the treadmill, running sprints faster than I ever have.  I have no idea about calories burned; I forgot my watch but did have the heart strap band, so I knew vaguely where my heart rate was.  I’d like to take the class again.  I need more money LOL.

 Today I got a juicer and sort of began a juice fast.  But a friend of mine said I shouldn’t be exercising and doing the fast at the same time.  So now I am considering waiting until the weekend.  Considering I went to spinning tonight and right now I am STARVING it may be a good idea to wait until then…..it isn’t like the carrots are going to go bad by then nor the apples.

Spinning was great.  I burned 680 cals according to my HRM.  It was a hard class, but I kept up and I pushed myself when she encouraged us to add more resistance.  

ETA:  Dori at Dori’s Shiny Blog is doing a giveaway!  She is giving away  2  Core Fusion DVDs and 1 Physique 57 DVD.  Enter.  It’s easy.

Today’s weight: 202.  *sigh*  However, I did do measurements and there has been some change or I did it wrong LOL.  I know I didn’t go to the gym as much this week, but I was hoping to see the scale go down since I am off the pill and another med now.  Maybe it needs more time.  IDK.  I wanted to lose 10 pounds by my birthday but that is in like 11 days so I doubt that will happen.

I had planned on going to spinning today, but when I woke up my back and head were killing and I wasn’t sure that I could even stand and move about never mind spin.  I got some coffee and moved around a bit and finally felt ok enough to go out and get some things done.  I went to Target to look for a juicer, and all they had were $100+ ones.  Uh no.  Then I went to go to Old Navy to make a return and found the mall was closed.  I then went to TJ Maxx to check for juicers and picked up a gift for my BFF since she is having a baby soon.

Then I went to the gym where I did the C25K week 1 day 3 run [32 mins, 2 miles] and then spent 30 mins on the elliptical.  My HRM said I burned 800 calories but that seems really really high.  I wonder if it is off or not?  Hmmmmm.

 Oops!  Missed a few days again.   was visiting me so my schedule was a bit off at the end of this week.

exercise recap:
Monday: I can’t even remember what I did Monday lol; oh wait I went to the chiro, free mani, neuro and had a horrid headache
Tuesday:  cleaned the house.  was going to go spinning but had random low blood sugar episode and thought I was going to pass out!
Wednesday: cybex and body pump class
Thursday: facial, nap, quick clean and then picked up 
Friday:  shopping and fun w/ 
Saturday: work, nap, errands, cleaned up room

I have plans for next week to be better on the exercise front.  I’ve even put it in my calendar so I know I have to do it.  Although having some days off definitely helped my foot out.  It feels so much better since Monday when I had it adjusted.  

tomorrow: spinning and maybe softball if it isn’t raining
Monday:  I am babysitting all day but if I can get up early and get to body pump I will
Tuesday: spinning:
Wednesday: burn class or if I can’t take it I will find something else
