Well, a good night's sleep can change a lot! Today was a good day. It was a little tough to eat my eggs and turkey bacon, but once we got out the door, I felt good. I got the kids to school and drove to the Y.
I had my list of leg and shoulder exercises and my phone so I could look them up. It took me awhile to find my way around the weight rooms and to figure out how to adjust the machines. Then I had to figure out how much weight to use. I surprised myself with how much I could do (legs) and how little I could do (shoulders). My muscles got pretty shaky toward the end, but I had a really good time! It was a nice break from focusing on cardio. I'm super sore. When I lifted up my daughter, every single muscle I had ached.
I came home after picking up Little One from preschool and made us lunch. I was happy there were leftovers again, so I had some leftover fajita steak and peppers with guacamole and black beans. I took a shower while Little One took a nap and then we headed off to Lego Club. And that is where I found a running buddy!!! So we have plans to run tomorrow morning. She knows that I am just beginning since she read Day 3, so I don't need to feel self conscious about not keeping up. I'm very excited to not have to go it alone, at least for tomorrow.
I made my first ever chicken curry for dinner. It was pretty easy and tasty. And a little bit later, I made my first healthy dessert...baked apples and pears with cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts and a tiny bit of honey. It really hit the spot. I love a sweet treat at the end of the day. I'm going to have to ask when I can incorporate some kind of chocolate into my diet. Just a little, tiny bit.
