I did my workout with my gf this morning as always. I grabbed my gym bag , drove my nieces and nephews to school and went to the gym right after. My workout started with my regular cardio routine i do just over a mile in 25 minutes(25 minutes no matter how far i go... must times i go over a mile) then 5 minutes on the stationary bike. I burned 100 calories in 30 minutes and then i started my lower body routine. i did reps until i couldnt any longer, only stopping when my muscles couldnt do the motion anymore. leg extensions kill me.... my knees are still so weak from injury and with every extension i can feel my femur grinding against my kneecap. I have little to no cartiledge to cushion me from that discomfort. after my strength training... i changed and sat in the steam room and today it was really hot. for the first time in a week... i walked in and couldnt see a damn thing :P I almost sat in some d00ds lap. he must have been terrified! ;) got out of there after 15 minutes and went in the locker room, passing the scale i decided that my curiosity would get the better of me today and i stepped on the scale. i didn't remember my last weigh-in number so i called my gf and asked her. It was316 . she didn't wanna guess what my weight was. Today i weighed in at 306. My last weigh in was Sunday if Im not mistaken. I was thrilled and so was my gf. I think more than anything... im just proud that im doing everything that i said i would... i havent faltered.....and i know at some point i probably will because that just reality and the nature of what we are all doing, but i know my gf is proud of me and I am too. That is a really good feeling and im gonna work harder to keep feeling it!
