All By Myself

I decided tonight to get the leg workout out of the way.  Runner Girl is in a play this week, so I won't be able to hit the gym after tomorrow.  I'll do upper body tomorrow, then videos and abs the rest of the week. 

It wasn't as easy to make myself go without having an appointment, though once I did get there and got warmed up (oh my gosh it's cold out here), it was good.  Turned on the MP3 player and just lifted and ignored everyone else for the most part. 

I know a lot of experts say to workout in the morning, but honestly, this is turning out to better for me.  As far as my eating goes, I am stronger in the morning and during the day.  I can usually not overdo or indulge in crap.  When nighttime hits though ... I just want to pig out.  Every night.  Without fail.  Hitting the gym in the evening is actually helping that urge.  I just worked out, I know if I eat much I will not keep it down, and I don't want to sabotage the work I just did.  I still have a snack, but it's usually better food and not a lot of it, and I drink a lot of water too.  So it is working for me.

And here's something cool:  I haven't checked the scale, but my yoga pants are all getting a bit big!  They are a tad baggy on me now, so that makes me happy.  *dance dance*
