Friday morning I met my sister at the gym, as promised. Although, it had snowed and I was trying to drive there in my car (stupidly) that needs new tires. It took me an hour and 45 minutes to drive to Sioux City, this drive usually takes me an hour. You might wonder why I drive an hour to go to the gym... well I work about 5 minutes away from the gym... I commute an hour to work, it has it's ups and downs but for the most part, I don't mind. So, by the time I got to the gym I had about 10 minutes to do a quick workout before I had to get ready for work. Molly was on the elliptical, so I hopped on the one next to her. I bumped up the resistance to about a 6 or 7 and went on for 10 minutes, while watching Home Improvement (love that show!) It was kinda neat, because I used to be a "regular", but lately I haven't been at all! ...BUT... I saw a girl in the locker room that is also a "regular" and we talked a little, like I hadn't missed the last 2 months (or more)... it gave me a good feeling, I guess I better get back into the being a "regular" mode ...I even considered renting a locker, so I didn't have to haul all my stuff back and fourth... during the summer, I'd keep it in my car, but in the winter, it would freeze, so, I have to bring it in the house and take the chance that the girls will get into it all... I know, it sounds so minor... but it is a pain.
That morning, on my way to the gym, I had a Slim Fast shake. I figure they are similar to the Medifast shake, has more calories but has all the "good stuff" that a body needs. In my lunch bag, I took one of these Breakfast on the go! ...they are good and have pretty good protein, plus they are portioned out into little pouches so I can just throw one in my bag and not have to worry about eating an entire package or something.
A friend of mine started a running club, called Jog Wild. A couple people asked her about putting on a 5K in our small town. She asked the rest of the people in the group what we all thought. I think it sounds like fun! Her and I are both pregnant and due in June ...so, we will probably be more in the planning and organizing. We are looking at Memorial Day weekend, so both of us will be rather, eh, swollen!
I will have time in between my appointment and when I have to get to work, so I'll go to the gym again tomorrow... I have to get a plan together for what I'll have for supper.
