Make up day..

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Sometimes it seems like there just isn't enough time in a day. I wasn't able to go to the gym on Wednesday like I normally do, so today was my make-up day.

I said no to Wendy's last night, even though I was the one who was volunteered to go and get it. I opted out and made myself something better. I made a homemade pizza on a whole wheat tortilla, a salad, popped cheddar rice cakes, and I had a fiber one lemon bar for desert. Might not sound like much but it tasted good and definitely agreed with me a lot better than Wendy's would've. While I was making my dinner I also took the time to make my breakfast for the next day. 1 egg, 2 egg whites scrambled with green pepper, onion, pepper and some diced ham, all wrapped up into a breakfast burrito. It turned out pretty good too! emoticon I'm getting better at cooking and using spices and veggies to add flavor. It was nice to have a breakfast that was pretty filling as well.

I did another full 8 intervals tonight as well! emoticon Tonight I did even better at breathing and controlling my heart rate. I wasn't nauseated this time around and it didn't take me as long to regain some composure after jogging. I still get a slight headache, but it's no where near as bad and I don't feel dizzy for fatigued. If anything once I caught my breath and I cooled down, I had even more energy. I was going from regular squats to plie squats, forward lunges to side lunges. I did 3 different types of calve lifts. I'm just trying to keep my body guessing by doing the same exercises but I switch up the order I do them in. I really do miss my friend Naomi being at the gym with me, she always shows me different exercises.

I can't even begin to explain how happy I am that I've taken up this journey again. I love looking in the mirror at the gym and starting to see my body slowly changing. I can see my legs beginning to shape out along with my torso, my arms are becoming stronger and smaller as well. I'm so glad I didn't wait until "tomorrow" to start.

I decided I wanted to try again.

emoticon I hope everyone has a great Valentines Day! emoticon

If you're in a relationship, spend time with that special someone!

If you're single, love yourself, no one can love you better than you! Although I'm sure a lot of people come very close emoticon

    How do you reheat the breakfast burrito? I've thought about doing something like that but then don't because I'm afraid of winding up with rubbery eggs in the morning.
