On track

Ever feel like your right on track? My eating and working out have been nothing short of fabulous. You know my new friend the stair stepper? Well him and I have had very successful meetings. He has thrown my legs the curve ball and they are loving it. Running is great exercise and I have grown to love it. It is my therapy w/out footing an outrageous bill, it is my calorie burner when I've found my way to the vending machines one too many times, and it is the thing that gives me a feeling of empowerment. BUT, my body has gotten use to it. So unless I am planning on running long distances every time I set out to run, my body will most likely stay the same. Don't' get me wrong, I do love to throw in some interval training with my runs, but like my mother says, it's always good to try new things.

For the past couple of days I set out to the gym with 1 mission - 20 minutes on the elliptical and 20 minutes on the stair stepper. As much as this doesn't sound like my cup of tea, some people just have to bite the bullet and do the responsible thing...I'm talking to YOU Ms. Lindsay "I can't find my passport in my drug/alchol haze" Lohan!

*On a side note, am I the only one who wants to smack that little arrogant, think she can get away with anything, face?*

So 40 minutes cardio and a leg workout later, I have been finding myself back at home eating the meal I planned on eating and the portion I planned on eating. How you ask? I just do it. Plain and simple. Maybe it has something to do with wanting to look great in a bikini, or just wanting to feel good in anything and in my skin? Either reason is good enough for me to keep on keepin on and follow thru and stay on track.
