Again, this morning I dragged out of bed. I probably would have stayed in bed until in the afternoon had I not had to get up and get to The Med Shoppe before they closed at NOON to order more compression hoses b/c the one I have ripped at the heel. And I placed an order for 2.
Saturday, April 10, 2010 Day 6, Level 2
Mood: Not feeling well still.
Difficulty of workout: 10
What did I put into my workout: 80% I really did not want to work out but I was not stopping now, I have come way too far to quit.
Mood After workout: Good. Though if I not had to go to the Med Shoppe I would have gone back to bed. And this was all I did for working out Saturday nothing else.
SIDENOTE: On my way to the Med Shoppe I saw a lady running and I just started balling/crying in my truck. Honestly, I do not know what came over me. I had to ask God for forgiveness for taking me being able to run forgranted. I will be so happy the day I can run. I know I will one day but it will be all in Godís timing, not mine. And you can bet I will not take it forgranted.
I texted my hubby and explained what happened. I do not cry easily so he ďrushedĒ home and cut his trip one day short. I am so blessed I have the best husband in the world.
Dinner: Was me, hubby and our 21 y/o son. We went to Golden Corral after church. It is a buffet place. Pretty busy for a Saturday night and they were running out of things. And we were so tired we were not going to wait for 20-30 minutes. My plan was to have salad, roasted chicken, rice and mashed potatoes. What I ended up eating was mashed potatoes, mac&cheese, and one roll and one multi-grain roll. And yes, I even had dessert, a very small piece of carrot cake and chocolate lava cake (small mushed up piece) with soft serve ice cream on top.
ANOTHER SIDENOTE: We were coming home from dinner and there was a guy running which both me and hubby say and he just took my hand and squeezed it, it just told me I will be okay one day. One day. One day I will run again.
Until tomorrow to report on Sundayís workout....Maria

Needless to say with Aunt Flo (a/k/a TOM) working out was the last thing on my mind. I woke up late (which is not normal for me), I didnít feel well but I still got up dragged myself in to work. On my lunch break I did get in my 3 Mile Walk, thought this might help. It did for a bit but then later in the afternoon I started going downhill. I left work early. Went home to rest. But this still didnít keep me from doing my JM30DS
Friday, April 9, 2010 Day 5, Level 2 (WOW Day 5 already)!
Mood: Not feeling well at all.
Difficulty of workout: 10 not feeling well.
What did I put into my workout: 90% I guess from not feeling well. I did sweat like never before. Maybe I sweated out my fever.
Mood After workout: Good. But still ready to just relax and take it easy.
Dinner: Well for dinner it was just me. I was not hungry and I didnít know what I even wanted to eat. And though I had planned on eating soup and salad. I didnít. Wish I would have now. I went over my calories by 10 calories, not bad but could have done better with my dinner choice and funny thing I didnít even want it. I had Jack in the Box, tacos, curly fries, and sampler. I ate a little of this and that and didít eat it all. I felt bad I threw food away but one of Bethennyís Rules is to CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP TO THE CLEAN YOUR PLATE CLUB. Working on it. I think I ate like this b/c I am missing my husband terribly.
Until tomorrow to report on Saturdayís workout....Maria

What a day at work I tell ya I had. My little hands were typing from 6:00 a.m. (took a break from 12:30-1:30 p.m. for my walking workout, I was not going to let anything from getting my workout in), then back to typing until 4:45 p.m. WHEEEWWW. I was so ready to get out of work and go home. Trust me all I wanted to do was go home and crash but did I do that? NO! I cannot stop and let things like this get me down, no more excuses is my motto at the moment. I felt so great after the walking workout and was ready to go back to work and tackle the rest of the day.
Thursday, April 8, 2010 Day 4, Level 2
Mood: Boy was I beat after the day I had at work.
Difficulty of workout: 10 I was exhausted.
What did I put into my workout: 90% I guess from exhaustion. Boy, were my arms and legs shaking today from this workout. Plus, b/c of my leg, I cannot do all the jumping around they do w/their legs (i.e., the high knees and twists) I do my own modified versions of them. I am lucky I can at least do the jumping jacks.
Mood After workout: I felt pretty good and I have to say did give me that boost I so desperately needed.
Dinner: Well for dinner it was just me and our 21 y/o son again. We went to Wal-Mart to get a few things (right we have all heard that one!). We were going to stop at Taco Bell on way home but we said no, we would feel guilty buying food at Wal-Mart then eating out, that is just the way we are. So, went home and though I could have made me a salad and eaten some fruit, did I do that NO. I ate a Tonyís Four Cheese Frozen Pizza. And yes I hate to admit it I ate the whole thing by myself and then for dessert I ate Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding. Thank goodness I did not go over my calorie count for the day. Just with Aunt Flo (a/k/a TOM) I need the greasy fattening food and chocolate, why is that? Though, today after work I have to take back tangerines I bought (the ones in bags) when I opened the bag at home, they were bad, gross had mold all on them. I really do not like returning things, especially Wal-Mart. Hubby said to let it go when I talked to him b/c only a couple of bucks. I said no, that is a couple of bucks we worked hard for, I want them back!
Until tomorrow to report on Fridayís workout....Maria

My dear hubby left at 3:00 a.m. to go to hillcountry for bluebonnet and wildflower pictures since they are in bloom right now, will be back on Sunday. :( And when he is not in town, I do not sleep and I was up, so I got up did my usual morning routine, read my bible, said my prayers and was doing my JM30DS at 5:00 a.m.
At work I continued with my workouts. I am doing really good sticking to my 3 mile DVD walking video on my lunch breaks. Though I might have to start taking my lunches earlier and eat at my desk when it is really lunch time. I have been doing this video around 12 or 12:30 p.m. which doesnít get me eating lunch until 1 or 1:30 p.m. (sometimes even 2 p.m.). And I did figure out it WAS this DVD that has my booty hurting, it is more than just walking I can tell you that.
Wednesday, April 7, 2010 Day 3, Level 2
Mood: Good but tired, dragging and sleepy. Aunt Flo (some of you might know her as TOM) came in to town today with all her baggage and all. UGH...
Difficulty of workout: Again 9, got just a bit easier but trust me NOT by much. It is hard.
What did I put into my workout: 90%. Again, I was drenched in sweat after this workout. Had to turn A/C off in the AM b/c I wanted that good sweat but takes a bit to cool off after DH has the A/C on 50 when we sleep at night.
Mood After workout: Great and ready to tackle the day. I would get up earlier and do my workouts in the morning but cuddling with my hubby is just too good!
Dinner: Well for dinner it was just me and our 21 y/o son. We went and ran a couple of errands of what he needed after I got off work (thank goodness I had my workouts in for the day). He loves Subway so that is what we had for dinner. I had a FLATBREAD turkey sandwich, some chips and water. We also watched the movies Couples Retreat (cute) and during the movie I had Jello Sugar Free pudding then some tiny breadsticks from Cafť Express that come in those little packages. I was thinking what AM I doing? I am not even hungry, I am not bored I am sitting here watching movie with my son. Then it HIT ME, I was sad and lonely missing my hubby, so I guess I turned to food. I NEED TO STOP THAT!
Until tomorrow to report on Thursday's workout....Maria
P.S. SORRY THIS BLOG WAS SO LATE BEING POSTED, I HAVE BEEN SWAMPED AT WORK. DUTY CALLS AND IT PAYS THE RENT RIGHT! :)

I tell ya again, I love my Nike Monica Bag! I was all prepared for my 3 Mile Leslie Sanone walking DVD, it felt great. I did sweat again today but not as much, I did it in the same empty office. And to boot I came to the office with my hairup! No binder clip for me today though, I love Karen's idea of bedazzling it! :) I found out the reason I sweated so much the other day and not today is b/c A/C was on today! It was NOT the other day. I am starting to like not having A/C on when I workout. I might be singing a different tune when summer gets here b/c Houston weather is brutal into the 100s with lots of humidity. One thing I did notice today with my walk was that my booty was sore, I was trying to figure out, is this from walking DVD or JM30DS or both! The walking DVD is more than walking you are doing all sorts of things but moving the entire time. Plus, I love the fact that I can walk 3 miles in 45 minutes.
Tuesday, April 6, 2010 Day 2, Level 2
Mood: Again, I was in great mood especially after working out at lunch. Nothing to get you in a great mood by the time you get home, workout out on your lunch hour.
Difficulty of workout: Again 10, my leg did swell but not as much today hmmmm.
What did I put into my workout: Again, 100%. I was drenched in sweat after this workout. These exercises are alot harder than Level 1. I do have do modify some of the cardio b/c I cannot JUMP like that with my leg all swollen.
Mood After workout: Fantastic, hit the shower and waited for Biggest Loser to come on.
Dinner: Hubby ordered Pappa John's Pizza, though I did order my 1/2 with tomatoes, onions and bell peppers and too boot they were the smaller pieces of all the bunch and guess what with all the working out I am doing I DID NOT go over my calorie count - WHEEEWWWW. Though, I was a little irritated b/c DH said he would order pizza like in 15 mins (he was out working on the front yard) before he left for his photo trip the next morning at 3:00 a.m. Mind you that was at 6:30 p.m. I am used to eating early by the time the pizza was ordered and arrived at our house it was 8:30 p.m.! YIKES! Well I was starving by this time. I ate all 4 pieces even though I told myself I would only eat two (but then I thought don't be so hard on yourself today is your cheat day!). Note to self, I need to have a heavier meal at lunch and eat lighter at dinner. I learned this tip from BOB the trainer on Biggest Loser. You know during the show Bob or Jillian will come on with trainer tips and Bob was one of them and that is what he said eat your heavier meals during they day b/c you will burn it during the day, most people do it backwards, i.e., ME! :( Especially since I have been having Slim Fasts shakes for breakfast and lunch. Which does fill me up for some reason but I have to stick to the chocolate, I have noticed that I cannot stand the Vanilla flavor tastes too much like milk, I do not like milk and it makes me want to puke.
Until tomorrow to report on Wednesday's workout....Maria
