Day in pictures

August 11, 2010

The day has kind of gotten away from me and I’m not up for writing a particularly thought-provoking post. I took a few pictures of my day, and figured I’d just share them.

I woke up this morning and was very tired. Laced up though and went to the gym.

I did 1 hour of high intensity cardio. I ran several of my sprints. Yes, they were only 30 seconds, but it was a heck of a lot more than I thought I’d ever be able to do at this weight. When I wasn’t running, I did a 9.0 incline at 3.8mph. Yay!

I then got ready for work, and headed to a place very special to my heart…

While at work, I received a big shipment of protein I was waiting for. Yum, protein!

I put the strawberry in smoothies and the chocolate I drink with unsweetened Almond Breeze

I also received my new iPod Touch from a friend who recently bought an iPhone. Squee!

After a long day of work, I found a package waiting for me at home. It was the bathing suit I tweeted about over the weekend. I need some suits for my cruise.

I cringed as I pulled it on, hoping that it would fit, and that I wouldn’t look horrendous.

Maybe it’s because I’m on some crazy endorphin high still from earlier, but not bad! I know it’s not perfect, but I worked hard to lose the weight I have, and I shouldn’t be ashamed of my work-in-progress body.

So, all in all, it was a successful day. And I need to go to sleep now so I can wake up tomorrow and do it all again! Weights in the morning!

I’m proud of what I accomplished today. Are you? If not, what are you going to do to make tomorrow better?

    That suit looks BEAUTIFUL on you. I always end up buying the suit in black – but you really are showing blue who is boss! It looks AMAZING! :)
    I’m going on a cruise at the end of the month too – but no where tropical – not sure if I’ll even need to bring a suit.

    And love the close up shot – the ruffles make the suit EVEN CUTER! :)

    Rock it girl!

    The bathing suit is really cute. I love the color/neckline of the swimsuit. My favorites have always been halter-style so I have a permanent halter-tan line.

    Love the suit, you look great! Today hasn’t stopped, but in a good way. I get to spend time with people I like, that’s always a win. Tomorrow I will give 110% at work so I can feel better about my weekend.
