Well today was the last gym day before the rest day. And I took a picture.
This is me at 228 pounds. Tree trunk legs, lol. Anyway, will try to remember to take progress pix in the locker room every now and then, because I have no full length mirror at home.
Today at the gym was a fun and challenging one. It started with me walking into the gym and waiting to be signed in, because a hottie mc hottie pants was signing up for a gym membership. Now right now they have a special running where the sign up fee is only $1.02. He had the $1, but didn't have the two pennies. So me, being the awesome person that I am, told him that I would give him the two cents so that he didn't have to use his debit card. I felt pretty awesome after that, haha. Anywho, threw my stuff in a locker and then hopped on the treadmill. I was only planning to do 20 minutes, and then switch to another cardio machine. Ended up staying on it for 2.5 miles (40 minutes). I warmed up for 5 minutes, then jogged for SEVEN MINUTES STRAIGHT. I was having a hard time controlling my breathing today, but I kept jogging and forcing myself to try and breathe right. That was the first 12 minutes. The last 28 minutes were spent alternating between walking and jogging. I believe "wogging" is the term that another Sparkie uses.i spent a combined total of about 15 minutes jogging. Stretched, then hopped onto the hydro massage table. Wonderful, love that thing. After I got my stuff together and left, I realized that I was ravenously hungry. Thank goodness that I bring an after gym snack with me. I scarfed it down like that was the last thing I would ever eat. I never knew how hungry jogging makes you, WOW! Definitely will always carry a snack with me!
Last night at the grocery store, I found tomato basil pizza burgers by MorningStar. Had one for lunch.. My goodness it was gooooooooood. I also realized that I'm kind of a vegetarian. I never eat red meat, and I rarely even eat chicken. I eat mostly fish, and MorningStar "meats". Kind of cool. The only bad part of the day was when I got home and slammed the tip of my thumb in the car door. It's a bit bruised now, hurt like hell.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
