Back on track!

Monday, November 15, 2010

Today, I finally feel better after having the flu all week! While waiting for the coffee to perk, I did 10 jumping jacks, after walking in place for a little warm up, and 10 side ot side steps, then walked in place for a cool down. I know it's not much but I usually just stand there and wait for the coffee to brew doing nothing.
At 9 this morning I plan on going to the gym for 60 minutes of water aerobics. I haven't been able to go since last Wednesday because of work and being ill. So today I will be back on track!
Since I have been sick I have still done 10 minutes of cardio and a few exercises at work, but I eat so much when I work weekends at the shelter, and their food is really high in calories and fat. I entered one meal in the nutrition tracker and it was over 1,000 calories! So I have been eating only about half of what they serve, and I skip the dessert completely.
Have a blessed day everyone!

    Oh WOW! 1000 cal for ONE meal is a LOT! Can you take your own?

    I think it's GREAT that you did those exercises while the coffee was brewing. I always use the step that the pumps are on while I'm pumping gas. I put it on self pump and then I do step aerobics while the tank fills! EVERY little bit counts!
