Yes that is the title of days journal entry, sore.
My body is sore. Only day two and I am sore. LOL Guess that means I am doing something right. It will all be worth it in the end.
Today was my lower body blast day. Some walking lunges, tabada squats and step ups to a 12"box (someone was using the 18" box and they were very stingey) mixed with some time on the eliptical machine. It was a great workout and I perspired (that's sweat people) a lot. I am just thankful that I didn't have to do any core workout today. My core doesn't like me much today. Even sitting here typing this blog entry I am thinking that it is time to get some more tylenol. ;)
Still working on the food issues. I have to think a lot right now about what I can and can't eat. What a should and shouldn't eat. It makes dinner prep harder but I know that this will all come with time. This morning I had a bowl of grapenuts (MY FAVORITE and 14g of fiber) and a big glass of water. Pear was my morning snack. Half a HUGE chicken breast sandwich with a little olive tampanade and a tossed spinach salad, carrott for a little more crunch was lunch! Then to top off my day at work I finished with a lowfat yogurt and some fresh strawberries. That helped me cool down from my workout. YUMMY! I am drinking lots of water and at least one glass of green tea a day. Amazingly enough, green tea is very yummy. Dinner will be a surprise since I will be dining at my mom's tonight. Hopefully I will find something good to eat.
I am feeling good energy wise. I am certainly not tired until I sit down at night then I sleep pretty darn good until my kids wake me up. :( Their little colds are just killers. Tonights goal is to have Paul help me take some body measurements. I want to be able to document that lose as well at the pounds.
I have been asked if I want to participate in a century ride (100 mile bike ride) at the end of this year. I think that I will do it (or attempt it anyway.) I told her that as long as the ride doesn't in 'gap' or 'horrible' I would do it. 100 miles. That is a long way. :)
