Am I on day FIVE? I forgot to look

Either way...I think it's day five. Well today was like the up early and we were at the gym by 9:30 our regular time. Did the upper body workout with the weights (I believe there are seven machines) Possibly eight. can't remember...Heather, do you remember? Anyway after that I did the 20 min cardio workout...later on that will increase to 30 and then 40 etc until I reach an hour every day. I'm hoping to get up to 5 miles a day and I do 1 right now. I feel that's pretty good for someone who weighs 275. Oh yes, by the way that IS my correct exact weight. I'm ashamed to admit that but it's true and on Monday morning I weight in to see how much I lost. Remember, I have not changed a lot of how I eat either...just adding the workout every day. I'm not expecting a big lose since I am adding muscle. I do plan on getting my body fat tested so I can see the difference in that.
Today we are coming tomorrow. I also have to TRY to get to bed early today since I have to get up at 2:30am to get ready for work. There will be no gym tomorrow unless I go after work to the 24 hour's smaller but still can get the same workout. I may fall asleep on the elliptical but I may try it. Depends on what time I get to bed tonight I guess. Sunday is a for sure rest day. I need it! It's also that time of month and i'm extra tired from that. Can't wait till that's over with.
Starting to feel a little better. So far the knee has been just a little sore at the end of the night but when I wake up it's fine.
This morning Hubby told me I should maybe stay home and work on getting the house picked up but then a few minutes later he come in by me and said you can go to the gym...your health means a lot more to me then a clean house. I was pleased to hear him say that because then I didn't have to feel guilty going. I was going either way but at least with him saying that It put my mind at ease...and I knew he wasn't going to be mad at me for going. It's not like the house is a TOTAL disaster area either it's just messy. Hubby is also doing a good job helping with his part of the house work...something he really never had to do before but now that I'm working full time it's too hard for me to do it all. He's really been helpful. He even did some laundry :D He does the dishes a lot and picks up around the's sure is nice coming home to a house that isn't a pig sty. He's been working on his weight also and has fixed his bike up and has been riding. His plan is to be able to ride to work and back. It's about 25 miles to his work from our house. Well, I better get back to the cleaning! Talk to you all prob on Monday. Have a great weekend :D

Never feel guilty for going to the gym. Your husband is a smart guy! Your health is more important than a clean house.

Enjoy your weekend.
