Today was a good day. I did my full circuit and 60 minutes/2.6 miles on the treadmill at the gym and I feel great about it. It was easier today, so I know I'm getting back to where I was before I started to give up! I worked on my strength machine goals today too. I did 4 sets on a few machines, and 3 on most others, pushing myself. I don't push myself until I might get hurt but just until I honestly need to stop. On to the cardio goal! Out of 240 minutes I have 180 left. Still shooting for 300 though. I did not bring my weights down yet, but I haven't watched any tv today either, and I still have to do my wall push ups and leg lifts tonight. I will!
To anyone who says you can not eat good food on a diet: Puh! Tonight I had roast beef with carrots, mashed potatoes and gravy, and I am still under my points. I love cooking and I was so afriad that it was going to be an issue on this journey. I love/loved cooking rich foods. Stews, pastas, curries, etc. I was afraid that not only was I not going to be able to eat what I wanted, but that losing weight was going to ruin my love of cooking. I could not have been more wrong. I do get to eat what I want. Sometimes I have to cook things a little differently, use lighter ingredients and I definitely have to eat serving sizes. It does take some getting used to but the results are worth the learning curve! As far as cooking goes I was forced out of my groove so to speak. I have learned new cooking techniques and tons of new recipes. I have essentially renovated my repertoire.

Getting better about the food and fruits and veggies! today I got in: 6 servings. MUCH better than before. Still working on it.
