Wow! I just got back from working out at the gym. 35 minutes on the elliptical and I feel g.o.o.d. The first 10 minutes were brutal as I was pretty sore & stiff from yoga yesterday, but once I loosened up and got in a groove I felt good. I have to tell you, getting back into eating right and hard workouts have made a big difference in how I feel overall.

Okay… some explanation about my food. Remember how yesterday I said that I would be on the road and in meetings today? This morning I packed a bag of healthy and good for on-the-go snacks and I ended up giving them to someone else. When I needed a snack this afternoon (I get shaky if I don’t eat every couple of hours) I couldn’t think of anything or anywhere I could get a snack quickly. I pulled into a Carl’s Jr drive through and ordered what I thought was the smallest thing and probably the healthiest….wrong. 350 calories spent on a fast food snack. Phooy. I don’t know what it is like in other states, but in California major chains are required to post the calorie counts of food. I love it, because it makes making healthy choices so much easier. I was caught off guard when the drive through menu didn’t have the calories posted and I hadn’t looked up calories ahead of time. The good news… despite that (and a couple pieces of chocolate) I still came out within range thanks to working out!
And now it’s time for bed. Goodnight tumblrers!
