Turns out I did have a workout in me

I got up this morning after a terrible nights sleep and all I wanted to do was sweat. I wanted to push myself hard. So I did. I did a 30 minute interval/strength session then did 45 minutes cardio. When I was done I was wiped out and sweat was pouring off my body. That was exactly what was needed. I feel better. Still incredibly sad but at least I feel like I can handle it now. I've spent most of the morning second guessing myself; maybe we should wait, maybe she's not as bad as I think, maybe another week wouldn't hurt; I finally decided that I could justify anything but is that fair to her?? The vast majority of the time she just looks miserable. Her eyes droop like there is pain and suffering going on. She's a pit bull so she's very strong and doesn't show much pain even when it's bad. We've had incidences over the years where the vet said she must be in extreme pain but you would never know it by looking at her. So if I'm seeing pain it's bad and the times she whines in pain must be horrendous. I just can't let her suffer anymore. I am doing the right thing. The reason I want to keep her around is for me not her. I don't want to lose her. Okay, enough of this. There will be plenty of that the next few days.

What I did want to note though was this very cool website. Do you know what 200 calories looks like??? It's a great website and a great idea. Very surprising!!! So the next time you feel like overeating something go look there, it will change your mind.

I am so sorry. You did the right thing

Time to do something again?

I'm feeling the need to do something athletic again. I have gone over a year with no real driving athletic goals. That is the longest ...
