Saturday Stadium Workout

March 2, 2014


What's worse than a Sunday hangover?

I'm not much of a drinker, but yesterday I was out drinking from about noon (brunch) until 10:30pm. I mean, I love day drinking as much as the next person, but that's so I can get home by 7 and be in bed by 8. Amiright?

But, before all that, I went with Amanda & Sophie to the stadium to do a "stadium workout." I didn't really know what to expect, but as a former Lost addict I assumed it meant we would run (and I would walk) up and down all the sections of the stadium.

What I didn't realize was that there were these sick things you could download from the internet called "stadium workouts" and there are all sorts of torture components .. not JUST the up and down in the stadium! 

What I should also mention is that Amanda and Sophie are both SUPER in shape and yes, I did just run a half marathon last weekend, but (and I hate to say it) running isn't really that hard of a workout once you get to the point where you can run a long distance. Anyways, so they are both super in shape which meant I had like two personal trainers but which also meant I couldn't slack! I couldn't find the sensor for my HR monitor, but Amanda burned 600+ calories so I probably burned at least 1000. 

So, this workout consisted of running, lunging, planking, push upping, mountain climbing, stadium running, tricep dipping, wall sitting, squatting and more running. Wow, even just typing that out makes my legs ache. And yes, today my legs feel like someone beat them with a baseball bat yesterday. Isn't that a great feeling?? 

So, I feel confident saying I've got this whole working out thing down. I've been working out consistently since Mid-January...now for the hard part: EATING RIGHT. 

However many times I've done it, I just always slip back down. To be honest, I don't even think I eat that unhealthily ... I've been the same weight for about three years (give or take 5 pounds) ... so all I have to do is lose 30 pounds, and then I can eat however I eat now and maintain that weight. Right?

So, uhh, give me some tips on how to stay full while eating delicious food and still being healthy. K? thanks!

  1. Sounds like an awesome workout, you're lucky to have friends that think that's a fun way to spend a Saturday morning! Try Paleo for 3 weeks and see if its for you - even if you're not strict you'll feel the benefits when you cut the dairy / carbs out!

  2. I'm out of breath just reading that list...
    Well done you, I am trying to eat healthy but some apple crumble jumped down my throat so well that failed!

  3. I totally thought of Desmond and Jack running up and down the steps, too. I don't know if I would survive much more. I HATE HATE dieting (I want chocolate) but myfitnesspal has helped me a lot in the last week for motivating me to eat the banana instead of the cookies.

  4. Holy crap. I'm impressed by your stadium workout. I would have been dead just running the stairs, let alone doing this circuit training. Dang girl. Get it. You earned that day drinking.
