Saturday. The hardest day of the week for me to stay on track. We're always running around doing stuff, going out to eat, and what not. Trying to stick to such a regimented structure like boot camp on a very flexible day is tough. But, I tried. And really, the point of boot camp is to get me to THINK about what I'm doing more. I'm not going to be perfect, but I can be more conscious of my decisions.
Exercise: Saturday mornings mean long runs. I get up, head to the park, and usually run a fair distance, then go to DD for donuts. Well, with boot camp, the donuts were out, but I still went running. It was only my second run this week and only third one since vacation in Oct., so I didn't have high hopes. I got in 2.25 miles in about 30 minutes. I would normally be able to tell you my exact time, but the stop watch stopped working and I have NO idea. :-( Very mad at that. So, I ran 2.25 miles, but not sure how long.
Water: There was no water today. I had four drinks all day: 1 cup of coffee, 1 Miller Lite, 1 Sam Adams Winter Ale, and 1 Diet Coke. No water. Saturdays suck for water consumption.
Sweets: I rocked at this one today. We went to dinner with a friend and after wards went to Bruesters for ice cream. I was the only one who resisted, which was tough since they had my favorite, pumpkin. I had a Diet Coke instead and kept the no sweets streak alive. Go me!
Points: This went much better than I expected it to. I had a nice breakfast of cereal, milk, coffee and a banana, which was sorta brunch. Then a serving of Goldfish Pretzels as a snack in the afternoon. Then off to dinner. Had two beers, a house salad (with lite dressing), a turkey wrap, and fries. The worst thing I had was the fries and I was only into my flex points by 10. It worked out really well. I'm proud of myself. And the funny thing is, I have 15 flex points available for the rest of the week. Wow.
9:00 p.m.: Worked out fine, even with eating out.
Breakfast: Breakfast was more brunch than a real breakfast only because I run on Sat. and I've discovered I can't eat a big meal before running. So, I can home and made my somewhat normal breakfast at about 10:30 a.m. So, it was more of a brunch, but it was more than 5 points total. :-)
3 Fruits: Ugh. 2 of 3 in. It's hard when you're out and about to get in all your fruits. I had a banana at breakfast, then my wrap had apples and cranberries in it. Not enough alone for a fruit, but combined, there was about a full serving of fruit. So, only two today.
2 Vegetables: I ordered a salad at dinner specifically so I would get some vegetables in. Worked out wonderfully as the salad was easily two cups. So, in one meal in one dish, I got my 2 vegetables in. Yea! And all while eating out.
