Day 28 – Sparta 300 & Date Night!
What a long day! I was up at 5:30am for the group workout. Met some lovely new 12WBT ladies, and we drove there together, chatting the whole way. The workout was good, not as hard as I thought it would be! After a few warm-up activities, the main part of the workout was a series of exercises totalling 300. In teams of 3 we had to do 50 of each exercise (as a team, not individually!), with a sprint/run in-between each set. Squats, push-ups, mountain climbers, crunches, burpies, and something else I can’t remember. So it was 17 each, per exercise. And we went through that TWICE! I don’t think I’ve ever done so many squats in one day.
The breakfast was nice, a spread of good healthy options: fresh fruit, muesli bar slice, banana bread, yoghurt & fruit, and juice. (After staying up making banana bread last night, I bloody forgot to take it with me! Lucky there was plenty to go around). We tried to hunt down a coffee cart in the park, without success. So we stopped for coffees on the way home.
Our Date Night was lovely, and Miss E was very well behaved! I’m so relieved. Until now, we’ve only had my sister Mim do babysitting for us. I wasn’t sure how Miss E would respond to new carers, and us being away for hours. But she was fine, YAY!
So I made some popcorn for the movie, but then in our rush to leave the house I didn’t have time to weigh it 😦 And I ate it anyway. So I did some reseach here, which says 1 cup of air-popped popcorn is 31 calories. I started with 3 tablespoons of kernels, and it looked to be about 3 cups approx.
For dinner I chose the seafood mixed grill, and I think it was a good choice. There wasn’t that much meat once it was prepared, although I didn’t cook it all at once and plate it together for a visual. However I do suspect I had a few too many plank chips. Next time I will decide how many I’ll allow myself to have, and then make the rest disappear out of sight. And I forgot to ask for the dressing on the side of the salad. So the calories here are a bit of an educated guess. Perhaps I could have taken my kitchen scales with me?? LOL. I didn’t feel like I’d over-eaten, so it’s all good.
I am pleased to have resisted the garlic bread that Mr S had for starters though!

Seafood Mixed Grill. Prawns, Moreton Bay bug, scallops, salmon & a seafood sauce, with chips & greek salad. In the foreground is the square hot stone that we cook on, and to the left of that is a column of sauces.
Death by Chocolate. I had one spoon, with a bit of everything on it. And when Mr S was finished, I also scraped up some of the chocolate sauce. My willpower muscle is getting STRONG!!
Tomorrow – Monday. Planning to do the 6:30pm Pump class, and I intend to have squeaky clean nutrition for the next few days. Weigh-in is Wednesday, and I’m not very confident of a good result.
