Tonight I went to the gym (yay!) to get back into my cardio and weight routine after a long time off for various reasons. The treadmills were all taken so I decided to do my lower body and core workout first, and then do my mile run. HOLY MOLY. It was the hardest mile I've ever run. My legs felt like they were going to give out on me. My lungs were fine, though. I guess it was good to confuse my muscles a little bit, but my gosh it was hard. It was nice to do some weight training again. Because I've been so busy, I've been spending more time on cardio and less on resistance training. I feel very lucky that I've been able to keep losing a bit of weight. Hopefully now that I am back into my routine the pounds will start to come off a little more regularly again.
Check out the new pic of my dinner - egg nachos. Those are most certainly a rare treat. They had a ton of fat in them but they were SO good. And they were all made of "real" food as opposed to if I had eaten a Big Mac and a large fries. I saw my fiance cut up all the fresh food to make the nachos, so I don't feel totally guilty about eating them. I really need to run a lot this week! Weather.com is calling for a BEAUTIFUL weekend. Saturday is more morning running at the gym and on Sunday we are planning on going to Philadelphia to walk around and explore some neighborhoods. Wahoo! Walking!
Super tired. Can't wait to go to bed. I NEED ROUTINE!!!
