From Sore to OW!

Mid-day 5 here and I'm feeling a mix of sadness and pride. Proud because I did do my workout. Sad because my legs still hurt and when I started doing the lunges the soreness turned to pain, so I didn't do many at all. I'm also having mixed feelings about a night out tonight and staying on course with my eating. I've gotten some really great suggestions from fellow NerdFitness folk. I think I'm going to be OK and I just need to not stress.

Today's Workout: BW Brigade: Workout B
BW Rows (Using Smith Machine bar): 5,6,7,7 = 25 (Same height as Wednesday)
Close Hand Push-ups (on knees): 10,12,10,12 = 44
BW Lunges: 10,6,5,0 = 21
Planks: 60s, 70s, 60s, 68s = 238s
Bonus Move - 5 Squat Thrusts

Yummies Thusfar:
Breakfast - 2 Eggs, Ham & Cheese "Egg-which", Small Apple
AM Snack - 2 Hard Boiled Eggs, Almonds, Apple
Lunch - Chicken Breast, Green Beans, Salad & little bit of melon salad
PM Snack - Nothing planned, ate a big, late lunch.
Dinner - TBD

In other news, today is my first Friday back in the office in about 10 months. While I like the fact that I can use the gym, I'm sad that I can't be home in my PJs working, spending a little more time with Jonas. Ah well, I'll make the best of it and kick ass on my challenge.

This weekend, I'm going to take an easy on the thighs.  No formal workouts are planned, however, I'm going to talk Dustin into going to a mall (that really isn't hard to do) and get a bit of walking in.  I'm also buying my body fat caliper and chin-up bar.  If all else goes well, I'm aiming to go to good-will and check on some more work type shirts. I've been feeling like I'm wearing the same 6 shirts too much and need some variety.

New workout clothes, now there is something have not been shopping for in a while. I'm still waiting to drop a few more pounds before I do that....I can't wait. I don't really like shopping for clothes but this time I'll be shopping for smaller sizes.

I'm liking how you incorporate what you eat into your posts. Gives peeps like me great ideas about what to eat.

Oh and Congrats on the weight loss so far. I am a bit late to your blog, but I'll be reading from now on!! :)
