Monday workout

I got in my first  full cardio workout in a really long time this evening.  I headed down to the gym just after 8 PM (hoping it wouldn't be too crowded) and did 40 minutes of cardio on the elliptical, plus a 5 minute cool down.  It felt good throughout.  I didn't try to push myself, kept the pace relatively easy.  No problems with my knee.  At least I got the workout in.  Tomorrow should be the first strength workout in a while.

I'm trying to get back to a good diet as well.  I had cereal and toast for breakfast today.  I brought an apple-cinnamon breakfast bar for a mid-morning snack.  For lunch I had a turkey sandwich, some pretzels, and an apple.  Mid-afternoon was carrots and for dinner I made scrambled eggs.  I'm a little hungry again and may have to dig up some fruit before going to bed.
