A Day of Invigoration!

I started the morning off feeling invigorated!!  Invigorated, that is a word I rarely use, but it is the word of the day.  Why do I feel invigorated?  I had a short, yet wonderful early morning workout at the gym.  I did the treadmill, which is usually so boring to me.  But today I said lets do something different, I put the treadmill on the aerobic conditioning track and got to walking. 

The Aerobic conditioning track had inclines in it...Yikes!  It was very hard, I don't know if I wanna do it again, but I made it through!  I was ambitious when I first started.  I was walking at the pace set to 3.5, then the hills hit and quickly I decreased the pace to 3.0!  LOL!  At one point I think the pace got down to 2.8 on some of the inclines, but once I got back to a flat level, I went back up to 3.0.  I stayed within the 2.8 - 3.2 range!  Trust me 3.5 did not last long at all!  I am amazed cause in those quick 30 minutes on the treadmill, I burned more calories than I ever had walking for 30 minutes.  How could this be? 

The hills!  The hills I say!  The hills added an extra intensity that I don't get when just walking without the incline!  So maybe I will venture to do the aerobic conditioning track more often.  It was a good way to zap myself back after not working out for 2 days.  I think my metabolism got a nice zap too...I was sweating like crazy.  I have pictures to prove it!  Even after I got home and showered I still had sweat coming down on my face.  I was sitting in the car on the drive to work still wiping sweat driplets off my forehead.  Shocking and intriguing all at the same time.  So this is why I can say I felt carried me all day!  Well almost all day....

I went to Costco at like 5:15pm.  Anyone who goes to Costco knows that Costco is just stress at this time of day!  I went in there for 2 things.  Please tell me why I took me 40 minutes to get out of the store?  I have issues with waiting in lines.  Yes an issue, the issue is, I haate waiting in lines!  :0)  So as I am standing in the Costco line which seems like an eternity, I begin to get frustrated, anxious, and impatient!  Once I was freed from standing in line and left the Costco parking lot, what did I see?  Wendy's!    And Where did Kyra go for Dinner?  If you said Wendy's pat your self on the back!  I told myself I would just get the boneless can't be that bad!  WRONG!  When I got home and pulled up the nutritional information, I was flabbergasted!  Oh well...I need to perfect the art of perfection!
