I am happy to say that I got outside both Saturday and Sunday to do cardio. Yesterday I clocked out one full mile and after I walked a mile and a half, I started at the mile mark and jogged all the way! I only took a 20 second stop/break and then continued onward. I can't believe how long a mile is though when you are running/jogging LOL but at least I did it! Last night my upper legs/butt were a little sore, but that's okay with me :) I figure today I will let my body rest a bit and just do some weight work. I'll get back out there tomorrow and see if I can do that mile this time without any breaks.
My eating has been better, and I can "feel" the difference! Between the cardio and eating, I have more energy and just feel happier...now if only I can remember this feeling and next time I try to make excuses not to workout, I'll come back to this memory and get out there ;)
I have been so enjoying my "power" shake. I use: 1c mixed berries (antioxidants), 1 scoop protein powder (protein), 1c fat free milk (calcium), 1/3c All Bran bran buds (fiber), 1 scoop flax seed (omegas), 1c frozen collard greens and 1c frozen spinach (veggies)...blend and you get a large drink/meal for under 400 calories
