I am feeling so good right now. I just felt like writing. I just got done doing my lower body strength training workout. I have lower body scedualed once a week and I hate it because its hard and I have problems doing the lunges... I can only get 3 sets in... and I have 6 sets planned. I cant hold any weight while doing it either... I tryed it with weights the first time and I swear I couldent walk right for a week. Im just now recovering fully from it and it was two weeks ago that I did it with weights.
Today I had an awesome workout though, I put on some music (www.playlist.com) and couldent help but feel happy. I was dancing when I was resting between sets. lol. I know my neighbors think Im crazy because I dance around my house all the time and I have the windows wide open so I know people outside can see me. I dont really care. I should keep the windows shut just for the neighbors sake though... I walk around in my sports bra too and I know people have prob shuddered at the site before.... again I really dont care what others think of me.
but anyway, Im having a good day. I feel thinner, alot thinner than last week. I have seen visable differences in my body for the first time in months. I dont know if I have really lost that much weight but I know I must have lost inches. Its pretty cool because I have only been doing the strength workouts for two weeks now and Im already seeing a difference. :-)
Im feeling very sexy lately, which is a big deal for me. Im looking less up and around and more up and down. (if that makes any sence) Now If I could only buy some clothes that reflect how I feel. Im really sick of only wearing workout clothes.
lol, my closet is a damn shame. I have two pairs of jeans that fit, 3 regular shirts that fit and then I have two pairs of yoga pants that fall off of me I move too much, a crap load of 2x tshirts that look ridiculous on me, two pairs of bike shorts that I just got last month so they fit good, 6 workout type tops, a pair of workout capris, 6 sports bras and 1 regular bra.
::heavy sigh:: I want something to make me look good. I think when my tax return comes in I might go out and get one outfit that makes me look really good, something dressy. I deserve to look nice and really want to look great on valentines day. My husband is taking me out to a nice resturant and I dont want to go in yoga pants and sneakers.
Anway I hope everyone is feeling as great as me. If not put on some good music and dance around!

POINTSŪ Value: 3
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 20 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy
A store-bought angel food cake, some store-bought frozen yogurt and a homemade strawberry sauce - all together, it adds up to a fabulous summer dessert, ready for your next barbecue.
1 1/2 pound(s) strawberries, hulled and sliced (about 6 cups)
1/2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp table salt
12 oz store bought angel food cake, cut into 1/4-inch slices
4 cup(s) fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt
1/4 cup(s) strawberries, thinly sliced (for garnish)
To make strawberry sauce, combine 1 1/2 pounds of strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and salt in a saucepan, stirring over medium heat until the sugar melts and the liquid comes to a simmer. Simmer 15 minutes. Use the back of a wooden spoon to mash about half the berries against the side of the pan. Cool to room temperature and use immediately or refrigerate, covered, up to 2 days.
Spoon the frozen yogurt into a large bowl and mash it with the back of a wooden spoon until soft and spreadable.
Line the bottom of a 9-inch round springform pan with one third of the cake slices, cutting any slices to fit the shape of the pan. Top with half the frozen yogurt, spreading it to the sides. Spread 2/3 cup strawberry sauce over the frozen yogurt, then top with half the remaining cake slices, again cutting any to fit. Spread the remainder of the frozen yogurt over the cake, top with 2/3 cup strawberry sauce, and finally seal the top with the remaining cake slices. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze at least 6 hours or up to 3 days. Let the cake stand at room temperature 10 minutes before unmolding; garnish with remaining sliced strawberries. Slice into 12 pieces and serve.
