Back On Track!

Thanks so MUCH to Carissa for talking me into the gym today. I think my cough is beginning to fade away (YAY!) so we hit the gym with a nice upbeat stroll which equaled 1 mile then we both biked and I stopped at 11 miles and walked another 1/2 mile around the gym.

Amazing that today I did 12 1/2 miles with more effort that I thought I would be able to give, hooray! I sooo wanted to run but I think it's too soon in the healing process, I was sure I would start coughing and wheezing, I still had a nice workout on the bike since I had it on level 7 on the random setting, whew!

Looking forward to going again on a steady basis, I need gym as it needs me.....

Really Off.........

Blah!!!! I've been battling an upper respiratory infection now for over a week and now a sinus infection has taken hold and I feel downright miserable!

Does my endless coughing count towards exercise?!? My Doctor changed my inhaler last week and yesterday she gave me an antibiotic ~ she was concerned b/c it can cause loose bowels....I just laughed!!!! These day I WILL take it, LOL!

Looking forward to getting back to my old self, I need to get back into my routine and finish off the final 20 pounds I want to lose....seems so far away right now, I just want to be DONE and maintain my loss.

Fingers crossed for a better week with MUCH more energy and no more coughing!

Superbowl Fun!

Headed to a friend's house (Kristen) here in a bit to celebrate Superbowl, what fun! For the first time in TOO many years I will be able to celebrate and not over indulge on foods and gain a ton of weight and have a major pity party afterwards.

Feeling kinda off today, Hubby was complaining of flu like symptoms this morning and my body is telling me that it feels tired so no workouts today.

Made some homemade salsa and guacamole dip, not much on the protein front but I know that there will be meats there to eat and I've already hit 60g of protein for the day so whatever else I eat will just be bonus.

I am rooting for the AZ Cardinals, I can remember when they use to the St. Louis Cardinals....oops, I'm showing my age again!

Have a FUN and SAFE Superbowl everyone!!!!
