I have failed on day 1. Instead of having a nice day off with some walks and jogging, I spent a whole day at E.R. with my daughter who fell off her bike, broke her jaw and lost four of her front teeth.

The best I can tell about yesterday was that I did not eat off plan, even though by the time hospital visit was finished, I just wanted a big bag of fries and coke, or anything sugary and fat, to make up for all the stress and missed meals since morning. Instead, I had salmon steak and steamed veggie in a restaurant. Go me. I wanted to do my excercise wafter the girls fell asleep (which is what I do most days anyway), but I was so shattered I fell asleep with them at 8 pm. Going to make up for missed excercise on Sunday, which would otherwise me my rest day.

Met my minutes goal, woot woot!!! I've got 2 more days of crunches to make my goal and I've got 2 more days of squats, also, on top of the 180 I still have to do today. I never in my life thought I'd be able to do over 200 squats in a day.

I have officially met ALL of my goals for the month, yayyyyyyyyy!!! And I still have my workout in the morning to add (yes, I realize it will be June 1st in everybody else's mind, but my day isn't over until I go to bed and, for me, it's still Friday when I work out at 0530 hrs on Saturday morning, LOL).
