    I really need to get back into the groove, Easter weekend has thrown me off. Plus the fact that my brother keeps bringing home unhealthy foods! >:/

    So my calorie count for today so far is right at 400. I skipped breakfast today cause I was running late, had chicken salad on cracker and tomato soup for lunch. Now I just have to force myself to go workout. That's the hard part.

    Ain't that the truth! Have you tried just walking on days you don't want to go? Something is better then nothing ;o)

    this is a good idea. Working out today sounds awful, however a walk in the spring weather on the walking path across the street sounds delightful...(then I have to leave our apartment though...) decisions decisions...

    I worked out so hard today I almost puked. Ugh... 15 min full out on treadmill, 15min eleptical, full rotation through all the weight machines in the fit circuit at my max weight then another 25 min on treadmill.

    I feel great now but I know I will feel it tomorrow.

    Good job for working so hard. Remember after working out try to have some protein to replace the protein your muscles lost. This will also boost your metabolism and keep you from being so darn sore the next day. And another thing, try to take a cold shower after working out that hard to numb your muscles and then turn the water to warm/hot to relax them. Ever heard of athletes icing their muscles? This is the same concept. Just because you are not yet a well conditioned athlete doesn't mean it won't work :) It'll make you feel much better!

    Yesterday I took a day off of working out as the day before I had a very bad run in with pregnancy weakness. Ended up on the bathroom floor for roughly 40 minutes until the fiance got home to help me up. So yesterday was a sleeping day. Today I think I am going to do a swimming workout! First time swimming since pregnant...who wants to place bets on how many looks a petite pregnant chick will get in a bikini?! (I hope my bottoms stay up...)

    I'm not worried about the protein. I do shakes every morning. And I am actually not sore thankfully. I am about to head to the gym for lunch to do some light cardio and the fit circuit again. Not going to max out my weight this time.

    I luckily know all the little tricks thanks to having a SIL with a masters in Kinesiology and a fiance with a 3erd degree black belt in karate who seems to know just about every trick there is lol. I am a lucky girl to have this kind of back up behind me.

    Off I go again... weeeeeeeee........

    Figured it was time I joined in here so I've got more people to be accountable too!

    After discovering I weigh about 10kg more than I thought I did I've finally hit breaking point and said enough is enough. I'm 13 days in to the new me and am already feeling better for it. I'm eating better and doing my best to do at least 30 minutes of exercise 6 days a week (I missed Easter Sunday which is the day I needed it most, haha).

    Now off to do my 30 minutes.
