It's been a solid day. Yay!

Exercise today:

32 min treadmill--C25K. Slow and steady.
60 min Zumba
2 sets 15 Reps compound row 80 lbs


Within calorie range AND healthy, home prepared meals. (Yes, food is being cooked in my kitchen, by me). This included lots of veggies! I came really close to stopping at Subway for dinner at 8:45, but remembered my goal. It's still a work in progress, but won't it always be?

What I'm proud of today:

Jumping jacks--and lots of them! Up until now, I have simply not been able to go vertical. Whatever muscles, joints, whatever, has consistently said, "No way sistah!" Tonight in Zumba I was able to pound out at least 20-40. Woo Hoo! Like it happened overnight. The jumping jack fairy must have visited me in my sleep last night. I was diagnosed about 5 years ago with osteoarthritis of the knees. Devastating news for a 30 something year old. I have seen such dramatic improvement over the past year and a half.

Good night dear friends. Been a long day.

    Jumping jack fairy... bwhahahaha! He must be kin to the cleaning fairy around here. Glad you were visited!
    Sounds like a super day. Cooking isn't something I enjoy so I'm a little envious of (but happy for) those who enjoy the process. I'll grow it, harvest it, maybe even can it, but let someone else cook it!
    It's good to hear you are having such solid days.

    Love to hear a SOLID day! Glad to hear you got in the kitchen because I was really thinking I would have to throw on my Chef Boy R B garb and come cook! I would do it too and it would be really good! Lol! Not to toot my own horn or anything...toot, toot!

    Congrats on the good day, now build on it!
