Day 10, 11 & 12

I really am trying to stay on top of my exercising but I am having chest pains that hurt even when I left up my arms. I don't know what has happened. I have had these pains on and off for a month or so know. It has moved from the left to more of the center of the chest. I did not work out on the weekend and I think I am going to take the weekends off or at least if I don't work out I won't let it eat at me. It's the only time I really get to spend with my husband and I refuse to work out in front of him.

We went to the PX on Saturday and I made sure to eat before we went since I just had it last weekend. That and my husband wanted to make fried catfish for us so I wanted to make smart eating choices the rest of the day. He's never made it for me but grew up on it. I couldn't tell him no.

Last night he made steak. That's all we had. No potato with it which was hard but I managed.

Tonight I made homemade pizza. Well I used Pillsbury pizza crust but it was the first time I have ever done this. I topped it with German pesto, spinach leaves, chicken, fresh garlic, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, red pepper, a red chile and feta cheese.

The chicken was done. I boil it so to add no extra calories. This was dinner and very filling it was. I am having left overs for lunch.I hid the spinach under everything so my daughter never saw it. She informed me when she saw the bag on the counter she doesn't eat

I did work out today. I did the entire video to. Had to take it slow in some spots because my chest hurt but I kept moving was very happy when I realized I wasn't as tired doing it as I was last week!

Hope everyone had a great & choice smart weekend!!

You are one good cook! It looks healthy and delicious. Maybe it's time to visit a Doctor? Don't sacrifice your health for exercise.

Good for you girl and you shouldn't feel bad about not working out every single day, you have to give your body time to rest and repair! That pizza looks amazing (and it's not becuase I LOVE pizza)!! I just might have to try to make that myself. Keep up the great work!
