Yesterday my training plan called for 30-60 minutes of cross training, plus strength & stretching. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, followed by 30 minutes on the bike. I then worked my arms and abs, and stretched out/foam rolled a bit. I was definitely sweating by the end of my workout.
My plan today calls for my first ever speed repeat work (jog 15 minutes, then run 1 mile at push it pace - 8 on a scale of 1 to 10, jog 2 minutes. Repeat). I'll admit, I'm a little nervous!
Yesterday was an okay eating day. I had a fabulous day until after dinner. I ate extremely well & stuck to my plan. But, I should have had a bigger dinner. I was very hungry, & opted to have something light to stay on track with my calories. I'm sure you can imagine what happened (as I should be able to predict, because I've had this experience many times in the past. Eventually I will learn). :-) As I was packing the kids lunches, I ate a bunch of Pirates Booty. I have no objection to The Booty (as my little guy calls it), but if I was hungry, I should have eaten a more substantial dinner that added some nutrition to my day. Ahhhh, well. Two steps forward, one step back. I am planning on having another great weekend with my diet & workouts at the beach, and need it to stay on track & not let every weekend getaway/holiday cause a gain, so I have a plan for what I'll be eating & when I'll be working out! I love a good plan. :-)

With everything going on in the world, this is what people are upset about? The Jcrew ad showing one of their execs painting her small son's toenails? Really? http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/04/11/jcrew-ad-showing-boy-pink-nail-polish-sparks-debate-gender-identity/ Give me a break.
What are your big weekend plans? And, more importantly, if you're celebrating Easter this weekend, what are you planning on wearing? I'm still going back & forth because of the weather, & because I'm neurotic & insist that everyone in my family (Michael + the kids) color coordinate. Yes, I'm nuts. :-)
