end of week 7

 Friday morning I treat myself to a banana and peanut butter sandwich for breakfast and then it’s off to the gym. I’m just doing cardio today so, it’s the usual 20/20/20 minute split and then I’m in the shower. For lunch I ate a turkey sandwich and a salad. I decide to head back to the gym in the evening. I do 40 minutes more of cardio exercise. 20 minutes on the treadmill at 3.5 mph and 9.0% grade and then 20 more minutes on the arc trainer and then its home for dinner. Dinner ended up being some organic Mac and cheese and also some vegetarian chicken like patties. Not the greatest tasting but, pretty good for me so, what the hell, why not?
 Saturday morning starts off with yogurt and granola with a cut up banana. I’m finishing my weight training today working my back and shoulders. But first I hit the treadmill for a 20 minute session. Then it’s over to the weights. I feel my strength coming back and this excites the hell out of me. I finish my morning routine with 20 minutes on the elliptical. Saturday for lunch I pretty much ate like a top fuel dragster eats gas. I’m ok with it though, it’s my one meal I indulge myself for the week. Again, I’m only human.
 Feeling great Saturday night so, it’s back to the gym. I do the usual 20/20/20 minutes split on the cardio machines. I finish off my cardio training with 10 laps in the pool. My swimming ability has greatly increased over these few weeks and I couldn’t be happier with that. I head home for dinner, looks like it’s going to be steak tacos that jenni is cooking up. Very tasty, I ate 3 of them.
 Sunday morning it’s another peanut butter and banana sandwich for breakfast. So, I hit the gym for some more cardio training. It’s the normal 20/20/20 minute split on the cardio machines today. Then, I head home for lunch and eat a turkey sandwich and some organic chicken noodle soup. A few hours later I eat a chipotle potato burrito and then decide to head back to healthsport for some more cardio action.
 It’s a 40 minute cardio session in the evening. I use the treadmill for 20 minutes and then it’s over to the arc trainer to finish up for tonight. I always try to finish out my cardio by going as fast as I can for the last minute. It feels good to finish strong. I’m happy with the way this week has gone. I was able to make it to the gym 12 times this week. A pace I try to keep up every week.
 I have 11 days left until my next weigh in. again, I’m not sure if I will be able to match my first month of weight loss which was 28 pounds but, I feel it will be a successful weigh in. stay tuned as I try to save my own life…….
