Trading Places: April 28, 2009

I think it’s Tuesday, right?  It’s been a pretty busy couple of days for me.  Well, busier than I have been.  I’m glad to be mobile because one,  if I keep moving I keep burning calories,  and two, I don’t think about eating (extra) when I’m busy.  I felt pretty good today, not too much soreness, no crankiness (I think EVERYONE appreciated that!) and no outstanding food cravings.  Cardio was hard to do today.  I didn’t have time in the morning or early afternoon to get it in, so I had to get to it after my last client at 6pm.  It could have been VERY easy to slip out of there and not do it, but I knew that I wasn’t scheduled to eat for a while, and if I wasn’t doing cardio, I would be doing something sedentary.   AND since I train with Matt in the morning, I would have to explain why I didn’t do cardio today.  I’m generally REALLY good at loopholes and reasoning and I can talk my way out of a lot; however, being that Matt was there when I was complaining about not wanting to do cardio, I knew it was a losing battle.  SO Yes, Matt, I did do it, all 30 minutes on the elliptical and I had MANY witnesses! 

My diet is continuing to go really well.  A bonus for me, Matt gave me a freebie food!  I get to eat all the red, orange, yellow, and green peppers I want!  Too bad they are 2 bucks A PIECE at Dierbergs because I could eat 4 or 5 a day, easily.  The positive side is that they are going to be in season soon so they should be cheaper at a farmers’ market (by the way, anyone who knows of a really one, please let me know!).

I meet with Pirtle bright and early (for me) at 9am.  I’m not sure how well this is going to go, because the last time I attempted to work out first thing in the morning, I nearly lost my breakfast, sad but true.  I’m hoping for the best so I’m going to do a little reading tonight then its early bedtime for myself.  Workout #2 is in T-minus 13 hours…
