Day off.. (Well sort of!)

Well, my extra day off started off on a bad note - woken up instead of SLEEPING by an employee who had a very stupid question that should have been taken care of on their own. This caused me to stay awake and inspired me to get my ASS in the gym for 3 miles on the treadmill.

But the chiropractor came first. He fixed me up - well sort of. The right shin still is a little too tender to massage the scar tissue. He used ultrasound to help with the healing until I have to come back next Monday for some torture. I broke out in a cold sweat just looking at what I will face next week. It's a lot smaller than the tool he usually uses, but it's still very scary.

After the chiropractor visit, it was OFF TO THE GYM! I cranked out a great 3 miles to start my 10K training. Then it was off to the weights where all of the magic has helped to be as strong as I have been. Plus it has helped me to lose another pound since today's my weigh-in day. Down 2 pounds - 15 nasty pounds to go!

After I finished my workout and showered (I did not want to SMELL - eeewww!), I met Josh where we went for lunch and then off to the Chicago History Museum for 2 hours (leaving right when they close). It looked like it was about to rain so we took the bus and then train back toward home with a stop at the grocery store first.

Now it's relaxation time. Tomorrow starts a short work week.

Want to be my weight loss buddy? I've only got two and a half more pounds of baby weight to lose, but I think I could have stood to lose ten or fifteen before I got pregnant...that puts us shooting for the same amount of weight to take off.
