Ok, did my workout for the day. This really is encouraging me. I think I'm going to get copies of my "before" pics and post them to encourage me too.
I encourage this highly whether you post or not. Seeing the results will encourage you to work out more than anything else, imo. Like, yeah.. I care about feeling stronger and faster and all that.. But SEEING that I'm leaner, stronger, faster.. This is the ultimate "Hell yeah!"
My before and after results from the past month is what made me feel confident enough to do this.
Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.
Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
prplchknz: i don't like it
There was a sub today so there wasn't much pressure to go fast. I went ahead of the group and practiced actually lifting my legs off the ground (which I don't normally do. Well thar's your problem). Right leg was normal sore, left leg got a pain in my ankle, and that foot squiggled around a bit when I put it down.
I think I need to work on that.

went to cycling this morning for an hour. was planning on taking the muscle class right after (hour classes each) but my stomach was killing me so I headed home. I stop my watch when my heart rate returns to normal and it was at 812 calories burned. Wanted to try and make circuit training tonight but still have pain in my side.
My goal at this point is to get to the gym 4-5 times a week. I missed last week because I was doing yard work and really busy with the kids and dental appointments and I could tell a difference in my body and mind so I need to go as much as possible to keep sane. It's sooo good for your mind to sweat! I'd start running again if there wasn't that risk of re-injuring my foot.
food wise i am eating lean cuisine. my favorite is the mushroom pizza! drinking one diet soda a day and the rest of the time, water. i am still eating sweets but managing portion control. i also like wasa crackers as a filler with my meals or as a snack with salsa.
