Only did 38 minutes on TM tonight, but I kinda ran out of gas... and I am sure I'm coming down with a cold.
But I exercised and stay just within calorie limits.
My old resolved is returning... and my random playlist helped:
1) Janine-Kim Wilde
2) Legs-Art of Noise
3) Hungry Like the Wolf-Duran Duran
4) Hold on Tight-ELO
5) Take 7/8-Ofra Haza
6) My Lips Are Waiting (Goa Groove)-Ashanti
7) A Passage to Bangkok-Rush
8) Singing Out My Life-Paula Cole
9) Love Is All We Need-Celine Dion
10) Rock Lobster-B52s
It's also nice feeling myself tightening up enough to not have my thighs rubbing together.
I did 33/32 sit ups and 14/12 push ups today... continuing to rebulld.

I have made it to 4 days straight of exercise... now to just make it 5 and I will have topped last week!
I also ate GREAT today. I made an amazing stir fry of veggies and tofu with a sauce of white wine, miso, dashi, water, soy, ginger & chinese five spice. I had it over brown rice and it was so so so YUMMY!
I had leftover quiche and salad for lunch. I was very careful all day.
Tonight my hips were a little sore, so I just walked 3.5 mph for 70 minutes on treadmill, took it easy based on how I felt. But still managed to top my 10K steps even though I forgot my pedo at work today.
I am wondering if I will go to work tomorrow since it is snowing like mad out there. We are only supposed to get around 5 inches... we have about 2 already... but it's the blowing and drifting they are predicting in the morning that concerns me more.
So I kept to my tracking of food and exercise today... we'll see what next week's weigh in says!

But it's a new week! So we will just restart. I didn't count calories, but I did dust off my trust Leslie Sansone 5 mile walk last night... it was just what I needed, she was just what I needed.
I was amazed that I started with about 1350 steps on my pedometer and ended with over 10K! Go Leslie!
So I managed to do well for 4 days last week, blogging, tracking, etc. So this week I will go for 5 or more.n I brought Jillian Michaels Cardio Kickbox to do at lunch. Then if I can jog TM tonight... well, there you are.
There are no good excuses about Thursday to Saturday last week since I know what to do. But I'm also not going to beat myself up over it. I will just start again... I feel I'm still in the right mindset to get it done.
I have some nice hot tea this morning instead of my usual ice water... it's -3 outside and I can feel the cold creeping in through the wall to a certain extent... it's hard to really get warm once you get chilled through...
I spent yesterday knitting hats on a knitting loom... it was a nice change of pace. I gave one to my friend who had us over for lunch and hanging out... she loved it... and I kept one for myself... and wore it this morning... over my usual ski headband... my ears get so cold so easily... but in cold like this my whole head needed a layer of protection.
So a new week, a new year, a new decade and a new start... as every DAY is!
