Yesterday did not begin well, but the second half proved much better. Before the ice cream trip mentioned in my previous post I went to the gym. I spent about 30 mintues on the elliptical machine doing a butt workout that felt like I was climbing a mountain. Today my tush is still sore but when I went home my whole attitude had changed. I felt good enough to clean my ktichen after the trip to the park and then made a new recipe, I'll post it below. I got sidetracked on the meatloaf, but its comming, I promise. Its on my recipe page if you are anxious.
This morning I got in to work kind of early and went for my thrusday weigh in, hoping and praying that scale would show some fruit from all my hard work. And guess what? it did!!! I am now 205, a new low, and only 5 pounds from my next incentive. Hopefully in two weeks you will see a post of me cooking away with my new food proccesor!!!
After my weigh in I went to see mom at her office, we work for the same company, ans she was thrilled. We are going out of town this weekend, she and I am one of my good friends are going to a sort of B&B-ish farm that is next to a spring fed creek where I intend to drink some wine and relax all wekend with no kids!
But I also intend on working out every day until next monday to keep up this kick start, maybe I'll feel so good by the end that I will want to keep exercising each day, rather than going back to only three times a week. At the end of the kick start I am either going to keep working out or lower my target calories, gotta keep this going so I can work on baby #3 at the first of the year!
