If I ruled the world…

Weekends are proving to be a challenge for me in the “eating well” department.  Friday, I tried out a new DVD, it was Bob again, but his “Cardio Conditioning”.  Holy cow. I yelled, I sweated, I almost cried – yes, I felt like I might during the scorpion push-ups… and the third set of suitcase swings… and some other parts 🙂  And man oh man, were my legs sore after that.

Then, on Saturday, D and I went on a great hike with some friends, and I had my little GPS tracker, which also tells me how many calories I burned.  However, I think I used that as an excuse to overeat the rest of the day.  It’s so hard for me to say no to the bacon cheeseburger after I burned 1500 calories.  But on the hike, all I wanted was a turkey burger and zucchini.  But since we went out, and I was starving, I opted for the burger.  Anyway, I’m not going to beat myself up for it, because it’s done.  I’m moving on! 

Yesterday we watched the Superbowl.  I also started a book called “Middlemarch” (for fun! An amazing concept for this grad student), so I read some of that as well. It was written in the 1800’s, and sometimes I get a little tired of the roundabout manner of talking they had- I’m like “just say what you mean!” haha

Today I did my Bob “Super Strength” DVD.  I took yesterday off from exercising after the hike, because my knee was bothering me a bit. 

Oh! It’s been a little over a month since I started eating better and exercising. I feel a lot better, and a bit stronger, I just wish the scale would move a bit.  I guess I can’t live my life based on a number, but sometimes I think it’d be nice to see some more change in that regard.  It seems to fluctuate by about 3-4 pounds depending on the day. 

This feels all over the place, sorry!
