Yeah...I stepped on the scale this morning, and let's just say it wasn't pretty. :( I knew I'd eaten more - and different - stuff than I've gotten used to, and I knew I hadn't done my exercising like I should have. So I shouldn't have been surprised, but...YEOUCH!

So this morning, first thing was a trip to Trader Joe's to get my frige and cabinets stocked with healthy foods!! I will probably end up making another trip in the next few days just because I have to carry everything, so two bags' worth is my limit, and they tend to get weighed down!! But I've got healthy foods again!! Woo!!!

Then I hit the gym!! Decided to "play" on the new cross-trainer machines they have. It's like an elliptical, but it changes up tilt, resistance, speed, and height, so you're constantly working different muscles. I opted for the "hill interval" program and went for 35 minutes. One big advantage with doing that is it's harder to actually change things while you're moving (it's obviously possible, but not as easy as just decreasing the speed on the treadmill...or at least not yet as I've never used the machine before), so once I was going, I was going. And I made it! Then got a good stretch in, which always feels good. Granted, my quads aren't necessarily so happy with me right now, but oh well. It's a good pain!

Tomorrow? Better eating and back to the gym!! Probably a run tomorrow. We shall see!

Yeouch!

OK, so I've been on vacation at my parents' house this week. I've been *ok* with the exercise - not great, but overall not horrible - but crappy with the food. SOOOOOO getting back on my routine when I get home!! My jeans still fit, but they're starting to get tight. So...yeah.

I have done a couple of runs outside and done better than I anticipated - especially considering that I'm on hills. I'm not running for the full 40 minutes of my playlist - or even the 30 minutes that's not warm-up and cool-down, but I'm doing pretty good. We'll see what happens when I get back to the gym.

Speaking of my playlist, I've been asked what's on it. If I could put it in a file and sendspace it I would, but several of them are purchases from iTunes and so they won't come through. What I can do is list the songs. :P Warm-up is the first one and cool-down is the last one (that may be obvious, but oh well.)

I Want To Come Over - Melissa Etheridge
Fifteen Pounds (Away From Your Love) - Stephanie J. Block
Message To Myself - Melissa Etheridge
Born To Fly - Sara Evans
Come To My Window - Melissa Etheridge
Dive In - Jennifer Knapp
If I Wanted To - Melissa Etheridge
Notes To The Coroner - Chely Wright
I Run For Life - Melissa Etheridge
Learning To Live - Beth Hart

Yes, it's Melissa Etheridge-heavy, but her stuff is good to run to, at least for me.

Alright...time to pack. Tuesday I'm back on the exercise and diet!!!!
