It's a pretty good day... unless my arm really does have a gross rash, then I'm through.
HAHAHA It's been itching but I don't see any specific marks or bites or pattern, just redness. I put some lotion on it and I'm avoiding touching it -- hopefully it was just dry skin.
ANYWAY. Went to the gym this morning -- was SO tired, but knowing I was meeting my gym buddy helped me along and I got a really good solid cardio workout. 527 cal in 45 minutesish, so ROCK ON. I did ArcTrainer, Rowing Machine, and Spin Bike. I did the Rowing Machine for about 10minutes and a couple minutes in this girl came in and sat next to me with the resistance all the way up and started rowing MADLY. I kept my pace and shifted a bit faster when I had a faster song, was close to her pace... but she left a couple minutes before I finished my 10 anyway.
UMmmmmmm. Was NOT feeling well last night at all. My stomach was cramping and my head was throbbing. Feeling pretty good so far today, though, so I hope this good feeling sticks around.
At the gym today I weighed 168, but that was post workout, still 169 this morning at home, so I'm gonna stick with that weight for now. I extended my 165 goal to March 16th since that's the final Scale Back AL challenge weighin and that's really when I'm going to switch to maintenance, whether I hit 165 or not. Since I'm below where I need to be for the challenge I decided I didn't need to have the cushion week affecting my calories. :) hehehe.
Pushup Challenge Day TWO tomorrow. Thinking I'll try to make Timbucktuna tonight. (The names for ALL the recipes in that cookbook are kind of ridiculously cheesy... the Thai soup I looked up the name -- Thai One On. BWAHAHA.)
I'd really like to get a Mongolian cookbook and practice making some things for my sister for when she's back from Mongolia -- although maybe she'll be ready for some good old AMERICAN food by then??? But I thought it'd be cute if I could fix maybe one meal of Mongolian dishes for my family to celebrate her return. I looked on Amazon and there is one that is like $80.00, and no others. Sooooooo...... I'm going to check the library and see, and if nothing there I will do some internet searching.
Hope everyone is having a good day!
