And the hedges are finally trimmed!! I ALWAYS put it off until the last possible minute (not that there is a time requirement on it...but I try to keep our house in neat condition)...and now it is done!! I ALSO weeded the gardens...which is one of my most hated household activities, but again, a necessity. Saving the lawn mowing for tomorrow...I don't want to overload on cardio today (HIIT day), and I feel that given the choice between my evening walk and lawn mowing, the walk wins.

I had a SUPER successful morning at the gym...not that I did anything really different, I just felt really strong today. With energy to burn. I LOVE those days in the gym the just makes me remember WHY I'm putting in all of this work! 5 months ago (or heck, a month ago for the ST) if anyone had told me that I would be routinely putting in 5 miles on the elliptical AND out strength training half of the people at the Y, I would have laughed and suggested psych meds. :) But I'm doing it now...what a difference 4 little months on SP has made for me!!!

On the docket for the rest of the week: Trying a group free weight class tomorrow at the Y...I might like it, might not...but I'll never know if I don't try! I foresee the possibility of a little more house painting this week...I consider it to be a relatively cheap form of redecorating, and I get bored with my decor easily. The kitchen looks great after painting it last night, so I might hit the laundry room later in the week (I get on these little painting kicks about twice a year...we bought our home 6 years ago, and in that time I've painted every room in it...6 times!) I'm going to continue on with my newest training schedule, but I decided last night that I'm going to beef up my ab's getting easy, and I want to keep getting results.

Anyway, have a good evening all!

    I love that you feel strong. I love that you have all of this energy. I love that you are getting so many things done.

    Now let's talk about me: I love the elliptical. I love strength training. I love free weights. I love ab work. I love psych meds.

    Oh. Wait. No. I don't use them anymore because I don't need them. Neither do you, in any way, shape, or form.

    I think you have not only pushed yourself...but you are my own little trainer and constantly pushing me too. I am not to the 4 miles yet on the elliptical due to knee problems but I am no longer scared of the machine and I can do about 20 mins on it and feel good afterwards.
