Everything is rushed on Friday! My alarm went off at 5:02 and I was up at 5:10 (after a few 2-minute snoozes…) My computer stopped me on my way out the door with some emails to read, so I finally made it to the gym at 5:45. While there I did a really nice 45 minutes on the elliptical followed by a round of strength training doing Kelly’s lunges with upper body moves and stability ball pushups and ab work. I added in some more variations to the lunges – instead of just biceps, shoulders, triceps, down, I doubled up my reps, then tripled them on both the way up and down for a harder burn. It was a really effective challenge. I’ve also got something Re. weight training I’ve been meaning to blog about and I haven’t had time! Perhaps tomorrow.

I actually ate in complete solitude today. Trying to listen to my hunger / satiety cues and all and focus on the flavors of the food. Normally I’d grab something to read or turn on the TV to watch from the other room, but this was rather pleasant and I enjoyed it. Not sure how long it will last, but I’m going to make an effort.
