I Feel Good...

Na, na, na.  I knew that I would...

I went back to the gym last night and it felt just as good as I thought it would.  I powerwalked for 1/2 an hour on the treadmill (didn't want to jump right back into running) and did a half hour of weight training.  It felt so so so good to work out again.  I was surprised at how much I missed it.  It's so odd that I feel that good about going but sometimes go so long without making an appearance.  It just doesn't make sense.  Then my children acted like heathens when it was time to go and I can never show my face at the gym again.  Argh!  I'm going to go back, of course, but needless to say my kids got a good kick in the pants about it when we got home. 

So just before my workout, I was at my mom's and decided to have a piece of turkey for a quick snack.  BIG MISTAKE.  It the perfect storm of lapband errors...It was too dry, I ate it too fast and I didn't chew worth a darn.  Queue the giant PB.  So I go work out, get home...order pizza...I know, I know.  First...why cancel out the workout I just did?  And second, did I really think I'd be able to eat it?  Of course not.  Stuck, stuck, stuck.  More PB'ing and I went to bed still feeling like something was in there.  I'm actually sore this morning.  So I'm babying my band today with just liquids, hoping to calm it down.  It's as if I could hear it yelling at me.  "What the heck is the matter with you woman?!?!  Are you out of your mind?  Left over dry turkey and then pizza!  What an idiot!"  So I'm drinking my coffee this morning and at least it's going down.  I struggled with water last night so this is an improvement. 

Hubby is starting to get geared up for his surgery at the end of the month.  He watched the pre-op video that expalins the procedure (like we don't know this already) and then all the risks associated with it.  While we are very aware of the risks, it does drive the point home watching a video about all the things that can go wrong.  I think he's starting to get a little freaked out about it but he'll be OK. 

No word on the townhouse yet.  They reviewed the application yesterday as the property management lady had a few follow up questions.  Really hoping we hear something today.  I didn't sleep well again last night.  Not real sure what's up with that.  All I know is I'm exhausted today.  Hitting the gym again tomorrow and can't wait! I feel like I'm starting to get in the zone again and it feels great!

I am sore today too. I basically did the same thing yesterday. Left over steak. AM I STUPID! yes I think so. Then I kept going. Ate a bit, PBd, Ate a bit..you get the pattern. Good idea. I think I will liquid it today too. I've had coffee and a string cheese but I think I will do soup for lunch or something!

Glad you went to work out last night. Get in that zone, mama!

Yeah! I'm in the same place, getting back to working out and feeling awesome about it. It's a fantastic feeling, isn't it?

Isn't it an amazing feeling to realize that we missed exercising after periods off from it? Not much more than a year ago I wouldn't have believed that if someone said it. But today, I'm with you, and that says allot about us and how far we've come. Those amazing feelings will see us through to the goals we have.
