Work It Out Weekends
So, this week, I only worked out 2 days. BLAH! Thursday was my first day back to the gym. I ran a mile and a 1/2 which, in my opinion, is not so bad for my first day back. I also did some free weights (is it just me or does anyone else sometimes feel insecure when lifting free weights?) I also did lots of crunches and worked with the exercise ball. I'm headed to the gym in about an hour for my second round of the week.
The reason I didn't work out more this week is a kind of sorry excuse. Whenever I haven't worked out in awhile, and try to get back into the routine, my knees always hurt when I go up and down stairs. After Thursday's work out my knee was killing me, so I decided to give it a couple days to recover. Hopefully it's okay now and I can get back into the routine.
As far as the eating healthy aspect of things, I've had better days. Friday night I watched movies with a friend and we had crackers and lots of cheese, and a few dark chocolate raspberry filled chocolates. I also ate mexican food about 3 times last week. Great....
Here's to a better week ahead!!! ;-)
