Misery with No Company

Who in their right mind would invent the side plank?!  Who did this and thought, "Wow! What a great idea!"  Who thought up doing this *after* 45 minutes of free weight circuit training?  Oooooh!  I know who thought of the latter.  Ha!

Surprisingly, I gained two pounds.  I have been averaging eating under 1100 calories and I have been working out so I am a little confused that I gained but whatever.  I guess overall I am more concerned about stabilizing my blood sugar and raising my HDL.  Losing my belly fat is secondary. 

I only have a few more personal training sessions and then I will have to dip into our extremely meager savings to extend it.  I am thinking I will need to extend it, though.  I am still not where I need to be.  I did three minutes of cardo between 7.0 and 8.6 METS and I am positive that it almost killed me!  My heart was thumping out of my chest.  I still need guidance and motivation.

Tonight is veggie chili Shabbat and I am excited!  De-licious!  Shabbat shalom, friends!
