Met my committment...

Monday, January 28, 2013

I made it to the gym today, like I committed to yesterday. I could have waited until Wednesday, or cut my run a little short as I am feeling that muscle again. It isn't as bad as last week though, so I am just going to keep pushing forward. I ran for 45 minutes, pedaled for 16 minutes and did a full body ST workout. I just remembered several ST moves I forgot to track. oops, gotta go back and add them. It felt good to follow through on my plan today... and then I came home and put in 35 minutes on the rower. Also walked the dog three times today, did some jumping jacks and hooped a little. I finished the January Jumpstart Challenge today by doing the video twice. Definitely heavy on the fitness activities today with over 400 minutes.

Foodwise... I am light on calories so far today. I will have a fairly large snack in just a little while, so I don't wake up in the middle of the night ravenously hungry. I am going out for lunch with a friend tomorrow, so I guess it is okay if I run a little low today. I am daydreaming about jambalaya for lunch tomorrow, so I might go over a little tomorrow. lol!!

My SIL was recently diagnosed with MS, and she has to go for a lumbar puncture on Wednesday morning, but her older daughter has an appointment (in the opposite direction) that morning as well. So... Auntie Do-Dah (that's my nickname) will be driving one niece to her appointment. I should still be able to make it to the gym though, as her appointment is at 9am. It means I won't get to walk Cooper in the morning, but he will go out to my parents' where he will undoubtedly get walked. Flexibility can be a good thing when it comes to plans.

It was quite warm (for January in WNY) today, and it rained on and off all day, so all the snow is melting. I just hope it completely melts before the next cold front comes through, so the ice stays manageable.

    Sorry to hear about your SIL possibly having MS. I have MS and the lumpar puncture (or spinal tap) will be able to positively identify it if is. (I hope not!)

    Flexibility is everything. Glad your able to help out family, that is wonderful. Hope everyone goes alright for the both of them. Wishing you a wonderful sparking week. I know here right now is thunderstorms following snow so they closed schools for a 2nd day this week. Keep up the good work.

    So nice you can help out with your family and they can help you with Cooper at times. Today was grey and warm- mid 30's. Roads were good for driving, but slushy in places.
