Feeling good today

Just a short post... for once I am feeling halfway confident and strong today.

I fasted most of the day yesterday and hit the gym this morning.  5K in just shy of 25 minutes on the treadmill and then my bursting class... according to my heart monitor, in an hour and fifteen minutes, I burned 806 calories.  I love starting the day with a negative calorie intake.  I hopped on the scale after the gym and finally it read 129.8.  It's about damn time that I break that horrible 130.  I know it's sort of a false reading because I was dehydrated from the gym and all, but it makes me feel so much better.  Now, I am drinking my Emergen-C mixed with 4oz water and 4oz orange juice and eating 1T peanut butter.  I plan to spend the rest of my day hydrating at work and I think I will pack fruit and yogurt for lunch.  When I come home from work, I'll steam a big bunch of spinach and swiss chard with lots of lemon juice and a touch of olive oil.

Today is going to be a better day - for everyone.
