A little late today but just because it's Valentine's day didn't mean I was taking a break! Jaime stayed home with me today, so I did end up staying in bed ridiculously late, but after I cleaned the kitchen and made some low-carb pancakes for breakfast, we went downstairs to the basement in order to begin my weight training. Jaime took a couple of classes last year and so he still knows all the stretches and how to use the machine. He's pretty mean, but a good trainer, and he had me working really hard. We're going to start doing that 3-4 times a week. I need to increase my strength and flexibility. 

Then we had a leisurely sushi lunch, which isn't exactly low carb, but another lesson I need to learn is how to have some self-control in an all-you-can-eat sushi situation. I picked over the various rolls Jaime ordered and had an order of crab rangoon, but I stopped when I was full. Even when Jaime ordered round two and everything looked super delicious. 

After that, we went to the dollar store to pick up a few things. Including a cheapo desk which I now have set up in my room and I'm using to type this entry. It's not a perfect solution to all my problems, but I think it's a good start, and I'm excited about my new work station. The day was so lovely, I announced we were going to walk around the park. And what a walk it was! 

Distance: 1.75 miles
Time: 30:00 minutes
First mile: 17:59

My best time yet! I could tell that Jaime was really surprised/impressed that I made the circuit without whining or resting or insisting we slow down. I think he was impressed with my willingness to work in general today. Though the core workouts made me want to puke. I got a little light headed and nauseous in the shower afterwards. I also have giant blisters all over my feet. Walking is not going to be pleasant tomorrow. I can't wait until they turn into calluses. 

I did 1/4 mile on the treadmill this morning. So that means this is my first two mile day! 

Now it's time to snuggle on the couch with some dark chocolate and watch a crappy movie.

two miles! CONGRATS

I am not going to make two miles until Wednesday. sigh

Are you planning to walk every single day, or are you planning to have a day off at some regular intervals, or are you going to spontaneously take a day off once in a while?
