Yesterday I redeemed two gift certificates that I got for Christmas to a local spa. I had a massage and a parrifin pedicure and also got my nails done as well! What an amazing experience! I could have stayed all day getting that massage. It was made even better by the fact that I had gone to a 6 am spinning class and had a pretty intense shoulder/back workout the day before...I could do that on a regular basis for certain!
On the down-side yesterday was so hectic that I missed lunch and didn't get anything between breakfast and my post-workout snack, until dinner! I did have one small bottle of water, but that was it really. They offered cookies and hershey kisses which I did not partake of...so I had to play catch-up with my water for the rest of the night. I'm not positive that I did get enough calories for the day...I didn't...so I can't let that happen again,

Today I went to spinning at 6 am! I was amazed that even though I got up at 5:15 I seemed to have more energy than when I go at 9. I'm not sure why that is, as I didn't go to bed early or anything, but I may try going at this time in the morning again...of course that won't be until I get back from Florida, but I think it's a good way to go. This class was only 45 minutes but it was way intense.
I'm getting a little nervous about not having the gym for 10 days or more. This will be the first time since we took Ashley to Boston in August that I will miss even 2 days. I do have a plan in place in the event that there are no facilities, but I will miss my spinning that's for sure.
Well, there's no point obsessing, I just need to be confident and sure that I can do this and I can adjust to whatever is thrown my way!

Well, I'm back from the gym! Well, considering my lack of energy this morning I had a pretty good workout. Today was chest and back day. I also did 45 minutes on the tredmill. I wasn't really feeling that, but I did my 30 minute interval program (running)with hills. Than I did an additional 15 minutes. According to my Nike+ I set a new personal best for the mile! I also got in 3.65 miles distance wise. I did wimp out on the stretching, I just wanted to get out of there and since it was later than usual and lunchtime, I was starving! But, all in all I'm pleased with my workout and the effort I gave.

Well it's 8:48 and I'm not at the gym yet! I'm feeling very sluggish this morning. I've eaten my breakfast and I'm dressed and ready for the gym. I'm just going to get there much later than usual. But, that's ok because I don't have anything else planned for the day, and they don't close, so as long as I get there that's all that matters! I'm not sure I can continue to look at the before picture I put on my page yesterday---ugh---and I was about 30 pounds heavier before that was taken!!!!! But, I guess a daily reminder of where I came from is a good thing. Why don't our minds let us see ourselves honestly when we are that obese? I really thought I looked good that day! Ha Ha Ha, jokes on me...but does that mean that the person I see now doesn't look that good either? That would be very disappointing after all this work! So, I'm stopping my procrastination and going to the gym now. I'll be back later!

for two days and learned a lot...first of all DRINK MY WATER! Since we traveled by car to Boston(5 hours in the car) I limited what I drank so we didn't have to make even more frequent potty-breaks. Well, I found out there are some very serious adverse affects to this:1. constipation, 2.felt light-headed and dizzy 3. HUNGRY. One other lesson learned, don't skip a meal! I thought that since I had an apple and a Fiber One Bar that I wouldn't need to eat lunch on the drive home Sunday(we were trying to beat the storm home). That was a huge mistake as it set me up for non-stop eating when I got home. Though I limited it to eating healthy food, the calorie count had to have been over my limit(ate so much I couldn't remember it all, and felt over full). That's the first time that has happened, and I don't want to experience it again. The good news was that on Saturday, after checking into our hotel and before we went to our daughter's concert at Boston University, I did a 60 minute cardio work-out in the hotel exercise room! If it weren't for that, I'm sure I would not have lost any weight this week. My official weigh-in was 166 pounds, down 1.8 from last week. So, here's to learning from past mistakes and not making the same ones when we leave for Florida next Sundary morning(18 hours in the car)!
