Day 45- 9/15/10


Unfortunately another day off from working out. I was feeling really fatigued and in a LOT of pain (those of you who are my Facebook friends may have seen several statuses I put up about this). I ended up taking both a morning and afternoon nap, and after this post I think I am going to go to bed for the night! :)

However, I did eat pretty healthy today, for that I am proud of myself. As tempted as I was, I didn't scarf everything down in the house like I wanted to. AND it was mostly clean food!

I decided to not follow the calorie cycling anymore, it tells me to eat WAY too much!! I think I am just going to keep it clean(ish) and healthy, also trying to slowly cut dairy and diet sodas from my diet.   I used to drink upwards of six cans of diet coke a day, I'm down to 2-3 now. 


1 bowl of oatmeal flavored with stevia
1 cup of green tea

Midmorning snack:

1 protein shake (since I didn't foresee any meat today)


2 cups of whole wheat pasta with natural spaghetti sauce
1 cup of green tea


1 cup of brown rice
1 cup of steamed carrots
2 cans of diet coke

Water- drank 2 liters of water today~ I used to drink 0 water. :)

Oh! Thanks to a really nice lady on Facebook, I got a copy of the elusive Dance Aerobics DVD Tracy put out back in 2007 (which sadly is not available anymore... And on ebay it goes way over 100 dollars... USED.)  I was perusing it, and it seems a lot more tiny-space-friendly than BDC.  Also unlike BDC it has 9 combinations (which are all short and easy to learn) and has an option to play all 9 back to back up to tempo with  music. I am really excited about starting this! Depending on how I am feeling, I might try it out tomorrow at my own pace.  I don't think I'll feel good enough to do muscle work until Monday.  My monthly visitor is here, and this time with a horrible vengeance... Urgh.

Nonetheless I will still be back tomorrow and let you guys know what I did!


  1. That's cool about getting the new exercise DVD! I hope it works out well for you. While your diet was fairly clean today, it was severely lacking in protein. Pretty much the only protein you got was from the protein shake, and the rest was all carbs. Definitely work on making it more balanced, as well as incorporating some healthy fats into your diet (olive oil, nuts, avocados, etc.). I hope you feel better tomorrow!

  2. Great job today Roxanne! A big improvement in your diet! Just watch the pasta-2 cups has about 500 calories or more! Maybe just have one cup instead and double up on the veggies! =) Keep up the good work!
