Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes...

Okay girls, I must admit that even after the wonderful demo from the dietician and chef I have been terrible about my diet this week! I know what I need to do, I just need to PREPARE more...cut my veggies, buy snack size servings, get to the grocery store! I am great the days I work because my hubs cooks at home and I always pack my lunch!

I have been good about my cardio this week! I jogged outside around our subdivision on Sunday night at sunset (so pretty) for 45mins and today I jogged 3.5miles and lifted weights. Thus the tune of "head, shoulders, knees and toes" comes to mind. Especially the knees! Pounding the pavement has taken its toll on my knees and ankles this week. At the advice of my friends, I think I will be investing in new shoes! And of course I will be seeing my wonderful trainer Kara this Friday! I was actually supposed to meet with her twice this week because of her own schedule conflicts next week but one of the two sessions got cancelled. I was surprised to find myself a little saddened by that! (I mean I love Kara and all but I get severe anxiety about throwing up each time I go!) Recently, I find that I get disgusted with myself when I have an off day on my diet, and I am frustrated when I can't hit the gym! SO that is progress...it didn't used to bother me at all! So I will run my tail off at work tomorrow and Kara will be kicking my tail on Friday! And I am actually excited! (with of course that nagging thought..."don't get sick, don't get sick" running in my mind too! HA!) Have a great rest of the week everyone and get moving outside this weather is AMAZING! ;)
