Day 1: a good start

Well, this morning I finally got up and worked out. It was nice. I did my ball exercise DVD and had a healthy breakfast, and I've packed a healthy lunch.
I must admit I sort of went on a crappy food binge this weekend. We went to a b-movie horror film party (chips & beer) and on Sunday I went to a bollywood film with my brother where there was popcorn, pokoras and some chocolate. Oh, and I made pizza on saturday. Yeah...Not absolutely horrible, but not at all the generally healthy eating like I usually manage to pull off. I'm putting my clean eating hat back on today and I'll be good. I can't do that all the time or I'll start expanding rapidly...

My knee has not given me any problem at all so so far so good. Tomorrow I'll hop on the elliptical for half an hour and see how it likes it. My cold is banished and over with as well, so I've got the green light for fitness again. I hope it goes well...it feels good to exercise again. I haven't done that ball DVD since my Mum was in the hospital...it's been too long.
This weekend I got a whole saturday's work in on my MSc and finished up a book and some other things. I feel eternally behind, but I'm just going to keep doing things, making lists and keeping at it. I won't get everything done all the time (frustrating) but I can sort of keep on top of things. It's a start :)

Hi! I found your blog through The Great Fitness Experiment, and love it!
I'm not a runner, so I'm always inspired by people who do it. (I'm also trying to lose about 25-30 pounds.)
I also wanted to mention that it's probably not a good idea to do P90X with knee issues. There's a lot of stress on the joints.
Anyway, just wanted to say hi!
