Post More Than You Think You Are.

I used to be a runner. I would get up and run at least 1 mile every morning come rain, snow, or hotter than Hades temperature. After a knee injury I had to cut back on my running. Then somewhere along the way I came up with the wonderfully lame excuse that I didn't have time to run, walk, go to yoga, go to pilates or even go to spinning class anymore. Today is the day I change all that by starting a gym log!

Exercise has not been happening other than my daily walking (I've been averaging around 5 miles a day plus up and down 6 flights of stairs for the past week and a half ), but I think my body is catching on. Once things settle down, which I'm hoping will be by the end of the week, I'm going to be hitting the gym hard. I want to get to my goal before this summer. It would be nice to hit it before spring break, but I'm not expecting miracles.

Still no real exercise beyond the walking and some occasional yoga. I've had a cold for the past few months that I just can't seem to shake. After I get home I just want to crash (after my homework that is).

Too sore to hit the gym and I don't want to hurt myself (the squats killed my legs), so today was strictly yoga.
