While you were sleeping

I was working out.

I have started my new job and it's great. Unfortunately it is 110 miles away from my house. With traffic possible in two major cities during the commute. That means I have to leave real early to get to work at a reasonable hour.

Last night I got in after a 3 hour commute home and didn't feel like doing anything at all. I pretty much ate and went to bed at 8:30pm. I happened to wake up at 1:30 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep. I laid there till 2:45 and decided to use my time wisely and get in my workout that I had missed yesterday.

I am still nursing a foot injury so I left out any leg type exercises. I have to run a half marathon on Sunday and I want to be able to do it. Because of the injury I just did upper body exercises that were a mixture of the ones in the previous workouts.

I think having a regular schedule is going to help my progress greatly. It was real easy to eat a better diet yesterday.

By the way, I am getting stronger by the day.

Meals yesterday
3 egg whites / Oatmeal
2 oranges
1 apple
3 cups of steamed vegtables
1/2 a cup of brown rice
1 baked chicken breast
2 bowls of healthy beef soup.

Exercises were a mix of upper body stuff from the 16 week abs workout.
