Did Boot Camp for 25 minutes then tapped out. I was getting dizzy after 10 reps or so, and it wasn't getting any better. After getting back to the office I drank a couple non-diet sodas, ate sandwich and soup, and a small bag of potato chips. Not sure if I was sodium deficient or what, but it felt odd. Friday I wasn't struggling like this and the exercises weren't all that different.

I need to stop eating so much. Can't wait to run again so I can keep eating but still shed pounds. Or not.

35 minutes on the recumbent bike, worked up a decent sweat. Then some weights - 25 curls x 30 lbs; 15 presses x 50 lbs; 15 tricep dips x 50 lbs. 30 pushups, 60 second planks, 5 pullups.
