I was wide awake at 7 this morning and by 730 I was headed to the gym. I get there sign in head to the work out room. All the treadmills are full. My brain says go home come back later. But I didn’t listen to that. I put my stuff in the little cubby hole and headed for the stationary bikes. I got new ear phones (see previous post) put them in my ears and away I road. I just thru several songs on the mp3 player and as I rode along I laughed several times at some of my song choices: I like to move it (which is a fav) Dancing Queen, Whip it, 1 2 step, several Prince songs, Just to name a few. It sunny that all the songs had a happy memory attached to them…made the ride very funny for me. Then I worked out my core on the machines. Tried to do an extra rep on each machine. Figure I will up it every time I go and try to build more muscle. One day at a time. SO we will call this a win day at the gym. Changing up cardio is probably a good idea every once in a while anyway right!
Got home and fried a pound of turkey bacon…No I didn’t eat it all. Only 3 pieces. It was really good but now I have some for the rest of the week already cooked. I can have on sandwich’s or salad. Another win! Had 3 scrambled egg whites also!
This weekend will be a test for me. I had an aunt pass away and for as far back as I can remember the family eats when we are all together. This will be my first test of will power. I have my mind in the right place so good lord willing I can stay strong on the food front. The second hardest part is knowing tat my aunt looks just like my mother that dies several years ago. So it will be an emotional time as well and what happens during emotional times…I have been known to eat. SO far I am doing good with this. Like I said before I am luck to have the support group that I have in place this time because failure is not an option.
Busy weekend so I’ll try to blog when I can….Till Next time……
Hang in there Pens! Sounds like you are doing great!! So proud of you!
