|07:18 pm - Kick ass day!!|
Today was just an awesome day. I woke up and my muscles were sore. That put an immediate smile on my face because a little muscle soreness means I am doing something right! *grins* I got dressed and headed to the gym. I drop my hubby off at base at 7 30 then head to the base gym. I did my work on the ellyptical and did a nice cross training session, making sure to really monitor my heart rate so that it stayed inthe cardio realm and did not drop into or above the range. I then went on the bike for 15 minutes and got my legs good and tired. I felt energized!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did my bowflex routine and gave myself a little more weight. Five pounds more for each arm this time, and it felt alright. I will stay at this weight for at least a month.
I left and went home and checked my mail. My hubby got let out early so I went to pick him up and we had a nice aftenoon together. He has noticed that my mnood swings have gotten better since I have been working out. I was so happy and energized today. Even though I know I do not look any better, I FEEL better and that is oh so more important. My moods are calm, my heart is calm, and I feel ready for anything. I EVEN WENT Swimming at the pool today and did not care about it...*grins*.. Working out is so good for keeping me happy. I am addicted.
Food for today
Whey protien shake for breaky.
small whole wheat tortilla with a slice of cheeze melted for snack
Slice of cold pizza for lunch
California rolls for dinner ( mmm sushi)
Night snack in a2 hours...Handfull of frozen grapes or 2-3 garlicky pickles.
I am not craving anything right now...let me see how i hold up later tonight.
I am just really excited about it this time. I have ried dieting and excercise so many times and failed. On for two weeks, off for a month...I just want it more now. I cannot explain it. I just want to be god to my body. I feel like I have been self destructive enough and I deserve to let myself live up to my full potential. I guess I just feel worth it at the moment and I hope that feeling lasts, because when it leaes I tend to just hide away.
Hope everyone else had a productive excercise and diet day!!!
