Ugh the rain is back, the curse of living in the northwest, so much rain so little sun. But that's why it's so green here and truly one of the prettiest places I have ever lived. The rain may stop my evening dog walk but I did make it to they gym this morning. My gym buddy is back, after a few weeks off due to sprained ankle. Yeah!!! She motivates me so much, I feel extra guilty if I miss a morning and she didn't. If you can find a gym buddy, they really do motivate you to push yourself a little more than you normally would. We do the treadmill and before she sprained her ankle she would walk for 60 minutes at 4 miles per hour at a 10 incline. So, naturally feeling like a slug, I push my speed up to 4.2 but the incline still at 4, each week I try to push that incline up by .5, my goal to overtake her on the incline at a higher speed. I'll get there someday.
So far this week, and yes it's only Tuesday, but I feel really good about food choices at work and at home. My big challenge will be going away for the weekend with my husband and not giving into all the goodies that confront me. Psyching myself up all week to keep the will power going and not let my stomach make choices my brain should be making.
