Yup this is my second post today. I have had a pretty awesome day today!
First I got G off to preschool and headed to the gym. Yesterday I ran and typically I dont run two days in a row BUT I was in running mode so why not? Its not like I was super sore or anything... SO I hit the treadmill. I ran 70 min straight ranging in speed of 5.2 to 5.6. Then I did 5 one-minute speed intervals at 8 (7:30min/mile) then did 5 one-minute hill intervals with the incline at 7 and the speed at 5. So a total of about 90-100 min. I was a sweaty mess... it felt AWESOME! When I was doing my speed work I even had people come up and comment on how great I was doing. It rocked!
Oh and my weight at the gym today 152.8... so 3.9 lbs in this two week challange would be AWESOME!
I was starving after that but did good - went to my favorite coffee place and instead of getting the awesome homemade scone I really wanted.... I got a coffee with soy milk and a small fruit salad!
After getting G, feeding him and putting him down for a nap - I enjoyed a LONG HOT bubble bath... soooo nice, and quiet!
I had a super special midwife appointment today - I got my IUD out...that is a HUGE step for us. We arent ready to offically start trying - not until March but not its 100% a definate that we will be trying! I also start prenatal vitamins and come March will have to wean off my favorite med ever - my antidepressant.
Made a super healthy, super yummy dinner of speghetti squash, sauted mushrooms, ground turkey and speghetti sauce... yummy!
After dinner we built a gingerbread house and watched rudolphe (sp?) - wonderful family evening.
Now Im waiting for the biggest loser finale to start. I have already prepped for tomorrow - I have to work 12 hours tomorrow so my lunch, dinner and snacks are packed. I have to make my gym bag. Im going to attempt to go after work tomorrow - I only need to do weight training, maybe 30 min of cardio. Not to difficult. I have all the stuff to do it at home but I dont - I do SOOOO much better at the gym!
