1st Day Strength Training

FOOD – 784 Calories Total
I definitely didn’t eat the lasagna tonight. Just the smell of it in the house was making me nauseous. I should have skipped dinner altogether tonight because I wasn’t hungry and nothing sounded good, but I didn’t. I just ate some random stuff because I hadn’t eaten in a while so I guess I felt like I should. It was way too late to be eating though. Oh well, luckily I didn’t make too terrible of choices. I am finishing the day with about 51 oz of water.

Dinner 8:30 pm – 471 calories
15 Wheat Thin Vegetable Crackers with
3 T Whipped Cream Cheese & Jalapeno Slices
1 C Sliced Cucumber & 1 C Cherry Tomatoes
with 2 T Hummus

And 2.5 oz Sweet Potato Fries

Billy came over tonight and helped me with an arms and shoulders routine. I really like working out with him because he pushes me, but yet he doesn’t push me too far. He also helps me on form and is always very encouraging. He has been wanting to work out more again too, so he said he would try to come over a couple of days a week to workout with me.

It felt great to lift some weights again. It has been over a year since I have done any sort of strength training, so it was a lot of fun, and I look forward to our next workout!

Couch to 5K – run 3 min stretches at 6.0 (I might die)
