Well, back up a pound. Oh well.
Last night I had an awesome cardio class at the gym. My legs are so sore--we did a ton of squats and lunges. I can tell my cardio endurance has improved because I could do the whole class and wasn't exhausted during or after. It wasn't easy, but I hung with all the moves and didn't have to rest during the workout.
I didn't eat dinner until 8 p.m., and I hate eating that late. I was asleep around 10:30 so that's not much time for my fish, sugar snap peas, and toast with cinnamon (dessert!) to digest.
I've discovered Orange Roughy! We had a box of it in the deep freeze from GFS, and I needed a 3rd protein choice on my 2 day Take Off this weekend. I had no idea how easy this could be to make. I thaw it for 20ish minutes in a bowl of cold water. Then heat a tsp of olive oil in a non stick skillet, dry the fillets on a paper towel and lightly spray them with cooking spray. Then I shake on Mrs Dash lemon pepper seasoning. I put the seasoned side face down on the preheated pan, and spray and shake the other side. Cook each side 2-3 minutes and YUM. So good, so healthy! It's not fishy tasting at all, and the lemon pepper gives it a lovely flavor. I am not a cook by any stretch, and usually my protein is chicken or ground turkey or sirloin tip on the Foreman grill; those are getting old, let me tell you. The fish is a nice change.
Sophie did great at swimming. There were 4 girls, including Sophie, at the level 2 class who were moved up to level 3, which is great because that class is at 5:00 and easier for me to get to. She was so excited, had such a fun time, and did very well. She loves soccer, too, since she's started with the new instructor (who is a 1st grade teacher and a total sweetheart with the kids) on Thursday nights. I am just tickled--getting her started in these activities at age 6 is the key, I think, to helping her be physically fit the rest of her life.
Not sure if I'm going to run today or not. We have a client coming at 4:30 that I need to be here for, and then dancing tonight, so I may skip a lunch workout today. My legs are pretty sore, so I'm working myself up to a lot of excuses to skip it. If I do, it's not a big deal. Life, after all, is more than working out. ;-)
