Today was my first Monday workout. I exercised last week Wednesday through Friday and, while I struggled a bit with the cardio workout on the treadmill at level 5, I did it. Today Joe came to keep me company because I forgot my ipod (well, okay, he was planning to work out too) and I discovered that talking while working out is fucking hard. "They" say that if you can't have a conversation while running then you're running too fast. Joe and I carried on a conversation, but it definitely cut about 3 minutes off my workout.
I've decided I'm going to do a MWF treadmill workout, and Tue/Thurs/Sat/Sun aerobics. That's 20-30 minutes of exercise per day, all of which can be modified to a higher or lower level of difficulty depending on my energy.
The Diet Coke rationing is going well--I've not had more than two cans a day since last Tuesday, and I've been drinking at least as many ounces of water as of DC. That's not great, I should drink more, but it's an improvement.
Tomorrow is aerobics, and I need to definitely buy a sports bra. My girls are bouncing around way too much for a high school weight room.
