Started out the day with water aerobics for one hour and then I used the treadmill for 30 minutes. I slowly increased the time and the incline and really did well. My heart rate maxed out at 137 and I burned a ton of calories. Yippy. It saddens me to see how few overweight women are there working out. Lots of overweight men but few women. I know why, its embarressing to workout in front of these tiny hard bodied young women but we are the ones who really need it. I am proud of myself for doing it inspite of being uncomfortable. I couldn't do the ciruit because they were having a class and I am not ready to join a class yet. I want to build up before I do that. I did find out about when the yoga classes are and monday at 10:15 I will take the beginners class to see how I like it.
I am up today to 211. I am attributing it to the increased exercise and know it will drop again shortly. Turning all that fat into muscle! I have doubled my exercise and am pretty darn proud of myself. I can see being under 200 in the not to far future and I want it so bad I can taste it. I will do whatever it takes.
I am back on plan for my days off, hot oatmeal on this cold morning, low fat wrap for lunch, V8 for snacks and I am making something out of the turkey breast I have thawing for supper. I am also going to make some cookies either today or tomorrow. Low fat coconut macaroons. Low fat, low salt, and low carb. I hope they are good. Then tonight we are going to listen to live jazz. I think we will share a bottle of wine and I am going to just listen to the music and relax to my core. I love my days off.
