Back in the saddle again...

Well, I had not been getting on the treadmill since my leg was hurting me really badly. My leg stopped hurting after a couple of weeks, but I still didn't get back on. Fast forward about five weeks and I was feeling it. My clothes was fitting me tighter or not fitting me the way it had been. Especially my bras. Yep, that's where I notice it first and then in the dreaded "belly fat" area. I could "see" it too...blah...it is not pretty!! So I guess when I am "working out" even though I don't see the drop in pounds the way I would like, it really IS doing alot of good. And in a way I can see AND feel. So after looking at my bigger body in the mirror the other day...lol...I decided that I needed to get off my arse and get back in gear because now that my leg is better, I really have no excuses. So, today was my first day back on. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I set the incline to 3.0 and my speed at 3.5. I knew I was going to have to start out slow again and maybe I shouldn't overdo it either. Maybe that pain in my leg was a sign to not push myself so hard. I can't help it though. Sometimes when I feel that it's just "too easy", I think I have to go longer or harder or faster and maybe that's just not the case. Anyway, I did 34 minutes. I was able to run that last four non stop at 4.0, but not at the incline and it wasn't so bad. I'm also attempting at cutting out bad food...again...attempting is the key word. First day...so far, so good. After I did all my house cleaning, working out and what not, my mom took Mikey out to ride his bike and I was able to scrap a quick page that I think came out very cute. I used a Pencil Lines sketch...Sketch 111. I like their sketches. Oh, I also got another package in the mail today from that birthday club even though I know my birthday was about three weeks ago. Here's a few pics :)
