today's note: oh, it hurts so bad!

thoughts:  I'm in severe pain. Yesterday, my friend and I did squats, lunges and other things with weights. OUCH! I popped two ibuprofen before going to the gym today--- and I'm back in pain again. Today's pain was brought to me by... most likely running...well, walking with a couple minutes of slow jogging and then "climbing the mountain" as I call it on the treadmill. (steep incline). Yesterday was was arms... but we also took a journey to the "intimidating" side of the gym and tried out a couple of new machines. I love the one crunch machine... I forget what it is called but you move your legs and chest into a crunch while lifting the weighted stacks... holy hell that hurt but it was awesome too.

food:  horrible. I bought a pizza last night, had a pepsi- today I have had a lot of sweet tea, coke... but I did have some cottage cheese, yogurt and some sliced turkey. Not a good day for food but I am looking to eat cleaner tomorrow.
