Going to be brief so I can go to bed (I feel very obligated to post every day, which is a good thing). I woke up at 5 this morning so I figured I should really go to they gym. I'm motivated like that. Seriously, though, I am really starting to love working out. Even though the workout was tough this morning, I felt so good when I was done, and was looking forward to doing more throughout the day. I am also glad that I did this extra workout because I took a sneak peek at next week's workouts and realize I will be doubling my run times (which slightly terrifies) so I can certainly use some endurance boosters.
Exercising is making me feel so good (as is eating healthily) that I am turning into a different person. Normally, I'm kind of a bitch in public, but I feel so good that I want to do things like smile at people and ask them how they're doing, wait and hold doors open, etc. I love this, I really, really love this.
No pictures today (use your imaginations to create poorly-lit, somewhat gross food photographs) but here's a quick rundown of the meals:
3 rice cakes w/ almond butter and strawberry jam
Raspberry Sorbet (they called the owner of the company who claimed it was vegan. I'm willing to go on the testimony of a stranger for something as delicious of this. Made by Yellow Snow Ice Cream, served at the coffee shop down the street from my parent's house)
Chips and Salsa
Potato w/ olive oil, salt and pepper
Saag Aloo w/ brown basmati rice
Chocolate-covered pretzel (I found some left-over in the freezer. Definitely not vegan, but I had some spare calories and I'm apparently having a treat problem).
Looking forward to my run tomorrow and maybe some yoga?? I got a DVD from Netflix on yoga for fat folks (basically modifying positions to accommodate girthiness) I hope it's fun! I really like doing yoga, but sometimes it's hard to do w/o modifications, so I think this will help.
