I can’t believe how many regular readers I have accumulated with this blog….I got several concerned emails yesterday about why I hadn’t posted! 🙂
I was home sick with some serious stomach pains that have turned out to be an intolerance to lactose. I have never been BFF’s with milk – but lately I have been guilty of 2 Venti coffees a day (with skim milk) and a cup of cereal w/ skim milk during the day then a cup of hot chocolate w/ milk at night. All this lactose took its toll on me yesterday…and it wasn’t fun.
So, I’m not a big soy milk fan (I tried it again this morning, and the aftertaste is just “funny”)…what other options do I have for putting in coffee / on cereal? I’ve noticed the store has Rice Dream – anyone have strong opinions on this?
Over the weekend I went to the gym with my brother and played trainer. I set his machines, and recorded his workout on his sheet (he sees a trainer currently once every 2 weeks). He told me I was a slave-driver…and kicked his ass. 🙂 That made me feel good! I kicked my own ass Sat and Sun with 2 new workouts I made. I liked them both. Sunday’s was MUCH harder – 3 mini-sets are so exhausting! I normally do 2 sets of all my weights. Kicking my brother’s ass and seeing him sweat made me consider doing personal training on a part-time basis a few years down the road. Once I’ve reached my goal weight and have maintained it for a while, I’d like to get certified and work on helping other obese people gain control of their lives. It’s HARD to do this on my own, but I’m in the right frame of mind. I think seeing both sides of the equation will make me more valuable.
P.S. – Absolute best new workout song ever…”Moneygrabber” by Fitz and the Tantrums. My brother turned me onto them and the song is SO catchy!!
