Let me get you caught up on the last couple of days.
Tuesday was not a good workout day for me. My hip started to hurt while I was running and I just didn't feel like I had a lot of gas in my tank (no pun intended). So I only ran about a mile and then I did some crunches and push-ups. The push-ups made my back a little sore on Wednesday so I decided to take the day off from working out.
Today was a much different story. I felt good; I used the cross-training program and got the full 30 minutes in with no problems. That's another 300 calories burned! I think I'll take Friday off and I'm going to shoot for 2.5 miles on Saturday. I think that's a good goal.
I do think that I am turning into a rabbit though. All I seem to eat now is salad and cereal. Special K for breakfast then a salad for lunch and a salad for dinner most nights too. I have to find a way to broaden the things that I can eat. I've always wanted to be able to cook fish, but I just have never figured out how. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
The other thing that I think is really helping is not drinking any beer. I've not had a beer since last Friday and I only had 1 then. (In the name of full disclosure, I did have several bourbon and diet's on Friday and Saturday.) I might break down and have one or two while we are at the pool for the first time this weekend. I'm so glad that the pool is opening up. I'm not quite to where I want to be, from a bathing suit stand point, but we are making progress and I think I'll be close to down 10 lbs since starting this journey a few weeks ago. Just have to "keep on truck'n".
