Today was a great day until I lost my keys, they're still MIA. It didn't wreck it though. It delayed my dinner almost 2 hours and stressed me out a bit, but it didn't get me off my clean eating track. That's despite getting Dairy Queen for Charlie on account of being so late. Mmmm that big billboard of fried things looked damn good as I was damn hungry, but nope! I behaved =)
The big perk of today was that I had a workout buddy. Woohoo! I swear I can never talk anyone into going to the gym with me. Hannah placed 7th in the cyclocross nationals,rides her bike most days to school, and trains off campus so she's already really fit.She joined me for the weights portion of my workout and it was good fun =)

30 min Cardio
Steady Climb Elliptical Program
I tried to read my Marketing book for cardio this morning, but it's way bigger than my console and falls off. Econ is the cutest tiniest text book I've ever had (Econ needs redemptive qualities ;) so I think I will plan to do all econ reading for the quarter during my am cardio to max out my efficiency. Here's hoping studying pre-coffee does not prove ineffective! ;)
