Light at the end of the tunnel...well...the first tunnel

Woo Hoo...I felt super duper strong on the treadmill today. I think while I was running today, well and even last night when I was doing upper body, I had a little change of heart as far as my goals. Nothing too drastic...but check it...I think I am leaning a little less towards the whole "losing weight" part of the challenge and leaning more towards "GETTING STRONGER"!!!! When I was in basic training, the fastest I was ever able to run a mile and a half was 17 minutes. I am now consistantly running it in 15 minutes and it gets easier every day. To be in better shape at 30 years old than I was at 20 is just amazing!!!!! I'm not saying I am thinner or weigh less than I did at 20...but that part will come so easy if I can keep training harder and harder every day. Hello!!!!
So workout for today is done!!!! Sweet!!!!

Cardio HIIT:
5.0, 5.6, 5.9, 6.2, 6.6 and 7.5 for my 10

I am going to try to go up .1 every week. Since this was my last cardio for this week...I will start my 5 at 5.1, 6 at 5.7 and so on. Oh....that's gonna hurt. I eventually want 6.0 mph to be a cakewalk for me!!! That will take the whole challenge I am sure, but I'll get there.

So menu for the day

m1: 2 egg whites, 1/3 c. oats, CLA
m2: Myoplex lite shake, L-glutamine, CLA, Thermodynamx
m3: Chicken breast, salad, apple
m4: chicken breast, asparagus, sweet potato, CLA
m5: myoplex lite shake

M2 is late becasue I wanted to wait until after cardio for it, and my daughter kept procrastinating her cardio got done late and shake got drank late. That's why I only will have 5 meals today.

Yesterday was free day. The day started off fabulous. But then later in the afternoon I had to buy some easter candy for the kids' schools and I broke down and had a peanut butter bunny. So...had to make it my free day. I don't think bunnies are on the authorized food list...:) My free day was a couple days early...but that's ok because I had major motivation last night break me right off that free day and back into the program. I FIT INTO MY SIZE 10s!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!! So excited!!!! They aren't lose or anything, but not super tight either. So my little mini goal of being in a size 10 by the end of my first 4 weeks is def in sight!!!!
