Today's Workout
20 minutes walk - PM
60 minutes RT - PM

Janet and I had another good workout with Lisa tonight. Lots of legwork, such as wall squats, one leg squats, deadlifts, leg lifts - from a side lying plank-ish position on the ball. As I said, LOTS of legwork! Back and calves, too, but I think my quads and hamstrings will feel it the most tomorrow.

And speaking of tomorrow, I've scheduled a treat for myself ~ a 90 minute massage. It's been ages since I've had one at all, and I've specifically requested someone who specialises in deep tissue, in order to work out some of the excess toxins (i.e., CAFFEINE) in my system.

Food stuff was good today, not perfect, but snacks were fresh fruit in the afternoon & a protein smoothie tonight after the workout. Lunch was a BIG salad, grilled chicken, and tomato bisque. I have no idea how the soup was made, but it was yummy and I needed that today. Surely it had to be better for me than the normal empty calories in baked lays, chocolate covered almonds, chips/salsa, or other such [yummy] crap.

More important than what I ate was that I felt in control of what I ate. I was more cognizant of whether I was really hungry or just wanting to munch (when that happened I grabbed 2 strawberries and a bunch of grapes from the fruit basket at work). That feels like an improvement.

Amy commented on yesterday's post that I should look at what fears are holding me back from making the right choices and living in the body I want. She's absolutely correct. I've been psychoanalysed to death and although I do know the whacked out reasons behind my rather irrational fears of being fit/thin/attractive again, there is something stopping me from making the consistent changes needed to reach my goals.

something.

it's probably just me.

On to more exciting topics... Hunter is cheering at her first pep rally tomorrow. I can't believe it. She's so worked up about it, and she's been practicing so hard. This is going to be so much fun!

Thanks to anyone and everyone who bothers to take the time to read this. Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Your posts are helpful to me. Even though I run a lot, I still struggle with my weight--and it all comes down to good and not so good choices.

The key word is consistent, isn't it? Not sure what you mean about "it's probably just me" but let me assure you, you're not alone.

Enjoy the time watching your daughter. For me, it's watching my daughter lead the marching band as drum major.

Keep up the good running and living!
