Tue, 15 May 2012 09:21:28 EST Injury While working out yesterday I injured my hamstring. I'm a little bummed because I was on such a high with my exersing. Still going to try to do what I can with weights and so forth but this is for sure limiting my activities a bit. Mon, 14 May 2012 11:15:43 EST Geat Sunday morning Feeling great today. Have so much energy this morning. Already had 6 cup of liquids so I'm feeling nice and fresh. Made Meatless meal for dinner today. (Not that I'm going vegan) but trying to cut down on the meat I eat. And for sure do more fruits and veggies. Sun, 13 May 2012 13:10:37 EST So glad it's Friday Well after doing zumba at lunch yesterday I had so much energy! I was surprised at the boost considering how tired I was. In fact, I had so much energy, after work I went for an hour long speed walk at the bay. It was nice to see all the little animals and their hatchlings. I was even able to see a falcon hunting. It was pretty impressive. So glad I decided to go for a walk and just go home and sit. :) Fri, 11 May 2012 10:10:43 EST Feeling tired today Ever have one of those days where you just feel tired no matter what? Well I am having one of those days! However, I still plan to exercise and stay on my low-Cal plan. Even when feeling tired don't let that stop you. It's O.K. to maybe not do as much as you need to, but don't skip a day of being on your plan. Thu, 10 May 2012 12:23:59 EST
