Day 4 went well. I may have finally had a day where everything worked out!
Exercise: It has been a long time since I ran. Like three weeks. I ran the Tuesday after coming home from vacation, then slacked. Ugh. So, I decided to jump back on the bike and run. I used the treadmill with a goal of 30 minutes. I was so close. I ran the first 25 minutes, then realized I was spent. Walked for three minutes, then decided I could run the last two. So, I did get in 27 minutes of running. Not great, but not the worst it could be. Afterwards, I used my Wii Active Upper Body (Easy) routine for some added exercise. The routine lasted 18 minutes. Yea! So, the best day of exercise all week.
Water: Got it all in...finally!
Points: Today, I stayed on track. Shocked, but did it. I had too many points at the end of the day though. Somehow I have to figure out how to leave myself enough points at the end of the day for a snack, but not so many that I'm scrambling to figure out how to spend them. It's a learning process. And it's only day 4.
9:00 p.m.: Nailed this. No problems whatsoever. This one seems to be getting easier.
Breakfast: Went back to the boring breakfast of Special K Blueberry cereal, soy milk, dried blueberries, and coffee. I'm starting to run low on the Special K cereal, but I have some Kashi Blueberry (which I think is better than the Special K, but more expensive. I only have Kashi due to a sale at the grocery store AND a coupon) which I will be starting shortly. I like having a little bit of a bigger breakfast and it's not killing me later in the day as I always thought it would. Maybe I'm learning. Shock!
3 Fruits: Got it! Had the dried blueberries at breakfast, grapes at lunch, and a banana after dinner. Not bad. It's not as hard as I thought to get them in. Though I am running into a problem today. I finished the blueberries yesterday and can't find my dried cherries and the grapes are basically done. Lovely. I have a banana left and there's apples and pears in the fridge. Enough for today, but will need to hit the grocery store for tomorrow!
2 Vegetables: Had a great veggie day! Made a large salad for lunch with tuna. It turned out awesome! Even hubby liked it. :-) Then we had the chili with all the extra veggies in it for dinner over a baked potato. Yummy! So, veggies we're too hard to get in.
Hoping for a good weigh-in day tomorrow. Would love to see the 4.2 pounds I gained in Oct. vanish, but I'll be happy with any loss. It's a start and that's all I'm really asking for.
