Still goin strong!

Friday, January 06, 2012

Hi my friends
So, yesterday was a 15 hr workday (woke up at 3:30 am, didnt get home til 8pm) so i'm fessing up, I didnt work out. HOWEVER, I have worked out every single day since last friday! I feel fantastic about that. And, I didnt go nuts with calories, so I still call yesterday a success..

Today, was a great day.

I woke up, grabbed some breakfast and then headed to see my personal trainer, George. He worked me TOUGH today, and I ended up burning 310 calories in 45 minutes, and that doesnt include any cardio! I'm telling you, he got the TRX suspension training system, and it is a KILLER. I love it. It completely pushes me to my limit. After I left George, I saw how absolutely BEAUTIFUL and warm it was out, and decided i would drive to the Back Bay Reserve and go for a run. When I first started out, I was only going to go 20 minutes, but it ended up being a 42 minute run and I burned 465 calories!!! WOOT WOOT. Its crazy, my new calorie burn "norm" seems to be 700! I love it.

After my amazing run (so amazing out), I went to the grocery store, ran errands etc. Nothing too exciting! I had Daphnes greek for lunch, and a turkey burger for dinner. I think im going to treat myself to frozen yogurt for dessert. YUUUUM!

Next friday is my trip to AZ to do the Rock N Roll half there in Phoenix. I'm flying in early friday morning, I'm not renting a car or a hotel, instead my friend is picking me up and I'm staying with her. I'm excited!!! I havent seen her in YEARS. I know its going to be a great weekend, and hopefully a great run! I'll do my best to remember to take pics! :)

I have to toot my horn for a minute..I am definitely proud of myself for turning things around like I said I would once the new year came. Working out daily (or almost daily) and keeping my eating in check, has really helped with my sanity and happiness. And, I think im getting addicted to those endorphins!!!!!!

Not sure what tomorrow will bring me, but am thinking a run outside and then maybe zumba or turbo kickboxing..we'll see! Stay tuned!

    So glad to hear about this great streak you've got going.

    Sounds like you needed that rest day yesterday.
