Today was a good day! How could it not be, it's Friday! Our company closed early today in honor of the Rockies opening day game. Bonus for us!

Nothing exciting to report. My workout today was awesome! I swam, and to top it all off, I swan for 27 minutes straight!  Roughly .85 miles! About 200 calories. (I think that's a little on the low side but it's an estimate). And then did a run outside in the beautiful weather we had today! It was so nice! I am excited about my run! Today I thought I would go and try W5D3 today. This is where I left off right before I had surgery. I had been avoiding this because I didn't think I was ready. But today felt right! I did it! 20 minutes without stopping! So Excited! I thought I was gonna die when I was done, but I did it! I finished around 2 miles. I wanted to go 2 more miles so I also did W4D3. I was able to finish that too. I went a total of 4.06 miles! And I burned about 848 calories! Damn great day!!
Tomorrow is my massage day! Also have to take the girls to be fitted for their letter jackets, and run a few errands. Tomorrow is Chinese food for dinner, have to be careful with that. High calorie, any suggestions?
I am running out of Internet at work, so boring. Today I was finished with work by 9:30 this morning. Thank goodness it was a short day!!
So happy weekend everyone! 


  1. great job on the exercise. I wish I could run like that, it will happen someday I'm sure :)

  2. Wow! Awesome workout! Chinese food - I usually do shrimp and cashews with snow peas and moo goo (egg pancakes with veggies or shrimp) I still usually gain post Chinese food ~ sodium!

  3. I can't even think about staying on track when we do Chinese. We are actually having it tonight and I have been thinking about fried wontons and fried rice all day.

  4. Hi Chris! I'm glad you feel so great. Isn't that first wonderful workout after a surgery so relieving and just bliss!

    I haven't ever swam that much in a row. But I did run a mile today before 2 hours of yoga. I haven't run a mile since, I don't remember when, but I usually do jog the dog around the block.

  5. I would LOVE to swim for exercise...I feel too self-conscious in a bathing suit, though. Maybe when I lose a bit more I'll join the Y :)

    This is a few days late, so obviously you've already had your Chinese food, but when searching different dishes on My Fitness Pal, it looked like chicken egg foo yung (without gravy) wasn't too bad. I patted mine heavily with paper towels to get rid of the extra grease

  6. Thanks for all the supportive comments everyone! Chinese food chosen was Beef and green peppers. I just love that dish. I of course had to have the sticky rice. It was there.
