My Hamstrings Will Thank Me… One Day

Last night I finally started working out in earnest again after recovering from The Stupid Flu. To kick things off I did a Jillian Michaels DVD, Burn Fat Boost Your Metabolism. It’s probably my favourite of her workouts. I made it through the whole thing, which is a great thing considering I haven’t worked out properly in probably a month or more. My legs are feeling it today, though. Mostly just my hamstrings and inner thighs. I find it a bit odd as usually it’s my quads that are sore, but obviously the hamstrings got a lot out of last night!

I’m not complaining because it’s the soreness that makes me feel really good about having gotten a great workout. I’m reveling. However, I am debating about what to do tonight. I’m hoping to run 5k, but I’ll have to just get on the treadmill and see how I go. If I can’t bear to run I can always do some incline intervals while I walk and catch up on some TV. No TV if I run, I can’t concentrate properly.

Tomorrow is weigh in day, I haven’t weighed since Saturday so I’m not really sure what to expect. I’m just hoping I’m still below what I was last month. I have my official weigh in with my doc tomorrow morning, too. I’m looking forward to seeing her and having a loss over the holidays. Lots of people gain weight over December, but I always lose.

I just have to keep the momentum going throughout the rest of the year. I’m incredibly close to hitting my first goal of under 200lbs and I’m trying to think of a great reward for when I do meet that goal. Non-food related, of course! But it should be something special. A spa day or something, maybe. Not clothes, because I have to buy enough clothes as it is every few months! My real splurge on clothes will be when I meet my goal weight, because then I can buy incredible, expensive clothes that I will NOT have to replace in 2 months time. That will be amazing.
