I actually wrote in a paper journal last night. I always used to do that way more than blogging, even though I had a blog! I found that to be kind of fun and different from what I am used to. I really should be better about keeping that thing up, because it has been a very solid view of my history since I started college. (I got a journal as a book from my first college boyfriend and have gone through a million books since then!) But I think I am going to work towards journaling in the book at least once per week going forward. It makes me happy to put a pen to paper, because it is different.

This morning, I got up at my usual time - 4:50 am. Mondays are a running day for me for my cardio, so I decided to do that right away. I wanted to do something a little bit different today that I had been running, so I just headed out. I ran two miles straight down the main drag by my house, then turned around and came back. Then I kept going a little ways the OTHER way, and then turned around. I ended up at a total of 4.5 miles. I would like to run further than that, but it just never works out. I guess I might need to plan a route BEFORE I go out or something?

I got home and took a shower and got ready for Monday at the office. I got dressed nicely today, wearing black dress pants, a nice top, and a black cardigan (because I always get cold!) with black flats. I packed my gym bag so I could go lift at lunch time. I only did upper body once last week because of the holiday, and I was hurting for lifting! I gotta get this body to be where I want it before my wedding!

The morning was rather uneventful. I did a lot of usual Monday morning type things. Recons, etc. Lame lame lame.

I hit the gym at lunch to hammer my upper body. By the end of the workout I was definitely struggling, which shows how weak I got short one workout last week. I am sure that's not it, I am sure I was just moving quickly (in fact, I was DEFINITELY moving quickly this workout). So we'll go with that instead of a weak Emily. Haha.

When I got back from the gym, it was time for lunch! I had a salad consisting of romaine lettuce, 1/2 oz of feta cheese, salad spritzers balsamic dressing, a can of tuna (topped with Frank's Red Hot), a large apple, and 1 tbsp of peanut butter. Oh so yummy.... See how colorful it is?

The afternoon has kind of flown by. I just ate my snack (cottage cheese spread on whole grain crackers - carbs & protein!) and I am trying to get a few more things done before I need to head out of here. I start the second session of my CPA review course (I am studying with Becker) tonight at 6, and J asked me if I could make sure to let the dog out before class, so I will be headed out of here in about an hour to do that. Then 4 hours of class! Yahoo!
