TGIF

I almost hate writing TGIF today. I have to work tomorrow and that kind of takes the air out of the Friday party balloon. I did well again today, my eating is finally under control again. I normally do 45 mins with the treadmill set to manual. Starting today, I am using the 5k circuit program. I did some light jogging/walking and it took me about 50 mins to complete a 5k. That seems very long to me, but now I have a starting point. The problem with spending so much time on cardio is that I really don't have the time to do any strength training. I guess I will have to increase my gym time to allow it, but that would mean staying over an hour each day and I really wanted to keep it to an hour. Anyway, the weekend is here and Sunday I hope to get the family and head out for a long walk on the beach if its not too windy.

  1. I'm so glad to hear that you feel like you're back on track. It's okay to alternate your cardio with strength training or maybe every other cardio day reduce it by half and do strength training the other half. Some days if I don't think I have 35-40 minutes for my walk I'll walk 15 minutes then later do the rest.
