Dear lord I hope I edited that title properly!
Today has been great so far! I set TWO alarm clocks this morning and apparently my subconscious can only ignore ONE, so I did get up when I wanted to. I did level 2 30 Day Shred and I think that I have changed my mind. Maybe I was just cranky last time -- or more likely the two visiting dogs who kept getting underfoot when I was upright and licking my face when I was trying to do something down low were irritating last time. Anyway, I enjoyed the level much more this time. I've figured out how to do the plank stuff better. I used a modified plank for a few of the exercises (modified plank keeps you lower with your forearms flat against the floor and your weight kind of on your elbows if that makes any sense) and got much more into all the exercises. I think I might start doing my yoga DVD in the evenings, though. I'm not ready to stop the 30DS, but I also want to do some different things.
After I Shredded I took the dogs for a nice 2.25 mile walk which they enjoyed very much. It's supposed to be warm today and I wore a long-sleeved shirt so I think I'll do my 30 minute lunchtime walk inside the buildings again. And this afternoon I'm going to have a lesson! My horse has been lame but now he's sound, and then my trainer was out of town but now she's back...so I'm finally going to get to have an actual lesson! Yippie!
I had a TON of sauerkraut last night and am retaining approximately 1.5 pounds of water. And THAT is why I don't eat salty foods on Thursdays! I'm having the leftovers at lunch today so I may have to wait another day to see any progress from this week. My food has been very good these past few days and today should be fine, so I'll be super excited to step on the scale Friday morning. I'm hoping for ONEderland. I'm so close right now!!!
I hope everyone has a positively radiant day!
