Thanks for all your encouraging thoughts for my godmother yesterday. The surgery went as expected. She did very well and it looks like the cancer was contained and all removed. We'll know for sure when the final pathology report is available.
Yesterday I ate great, I ended with 1250 cal. At lunch I went to the gym. I did C25K Week 1 day2. I started over when my iphone had to be reloaded and my settings were lost. It is getting easier and I am doing better on speed this time through. After my walk/run, I lifted some weights. My trainer was happy to see me in the gym so much this week. I explained that TKD is closed this week so I've had extra time. He wants me to do the gym 3-4 times a week, but with TKD 2-3 times a week that's generally not in my schedule. Now that the kids are in school maybe I can do more. I'm sure enjoying the extra workouts this week.
So yesterday as I was having to wrap up my workout to get back to work I realized something amazing. I love working out. I want to do it more. I'm pretty sure if I had the opportunity I could spend hours in the gym everyday. Between cardio, weights and swimming and even yoga classes which I have yet to try due to my schedule. I wish I had more time in my day to spend just doing all the exercise I want. That is SO weird for me. In March 2010 when I really got busy on this healthy track I could barely force myself to walk 30 min a day. Now I'm pissed off if I only have time for a 30 min workout. WHO am I? I don't know, but I like it. Today I will be doing elliptical and some weights and my plan is to swim laps for a bit as well. If there is time, I may even hop in the hot tub. I have a little extra time today since work is slow today. I think people are getting ready to go out of town.
I'm trying hard not to weigh everyday. The scale calls to me and I tell him to wait. I'll weigh on Monday. I have a football game this weekend. I'll have to watch for the usual traps. Especially the trap of not drinking enough water and having alcohol. That just makes me bloat so badly. I rarely if ever drink and I don't drink much when I do. But, it is amazing to me how little it takes to bloat me.
I went to Kohl's this morning and checked on the clearance racks. I just hate paying money for clothes these days. I found some cute cheap shirts for fall and a couple of pants. None of them were more than $10. Plus I had my 15% coupon. SCORE! I love bargains.
I have just a few more vacation pics to share........
After Mount Rushmore, we drove to the Badlands National Park. So different from anywhere I've ever been. Beautiful in a very unique way.

So.....where are you with your exercise routine? Are you getting it in? Are you getting enough? What is your FAVORITE exercise? What time of day do you usually exercise and how do you fit it into your schedule?
