Sorry, I just can't think of anything catchy tonight. It's been quite a day. A GOOD day though. Did I mention DH is out of town? Yeah, he's in Seattle, WA until Thursday night. So it's just me and DS. Tonight I am missing the hubby. I am worn out and DS had LOADS of energy tonight. Ahh...but here I sit...DS is in bed (before 9 even!), I have had my shower, the dishes are done, the house is straightened up, and I am in bed watching Everybody Loves Raymond on TBS and blogging. Doesn't get much better than that!
So let's review my goals for each day this week: (see today's earlier blog entry)
1) 3 days of exercise this week--either 3 treadmill workouts doing C25K or elliptical workouts.
2) Stay in my points and use no flex points until the weekend
3) fruits and veggies--minumum 5 per day
4) water--minimum 135 ounces per day (with the exception of next Monday, which is WI day)
I did make it to the gym today and did 33 minutes on the elliptical burning 300 calories and going 2.7 miles. I didn't want to go, but I did. It's so miserably hot here I didn't want to even leave the house.
I stayed within my points today and actually I am under for the day. I hate having points leftover, but oh well. I still have all of my flex points!! :)
I got in 7 servings of fruits and veggies today. YAY!!!
I got in 140 ounces of water...actually I got in more, but I quit counting at 140.
So there you have it. WOO HOO!!! Now let's just see if I can do this again tomorrow!!
Here's my menu for today:
B--Banana (1--it was a small banana) and some of DS donuts--not the best decision, so I MADE myself go to the gym today--5--6 total for breakfast
L--Turkey pastrami (sp?) sammich on a Light English Muffin (my new favorite way to eat sammiches!!)--2; salad (1); Progresso Minestrone Soup--2--total of 5 for lunch
S--banana (1--again, small)
D--Chicken pot pie (5), broccoli with cheese (2)--7 for dinner
Dessert with DS--Strawberry shortcake--4
Total 23 out of 25 alloted.
2 APs earned/unused.
So there you have it, a good day. See, I CAN do this. I just need to make the good decisions throughout the day to get me there. My sister's wedding is a month from tomorrow (Wednesday). I am going to get on the scale in the morning and see what a realistic goal is for me between now and then. It's only a month. I can do anything for a month. Right??
I think tomorrow's workout might be Pilates. I have a massage scheduled for 3:30 so I am hoping to get Pilates done before the massage. Then I might do some kind of running in place or jumping jacks or something for 10 minutes so I have 30 minutes of activity.
I am out of here...off to bed. I need to get there early more often. It's so hard when it doesn't get dark until after 9 every night. I used to be in bed every night at 9. Wish I could get back to that point! :) Have a good night/great OP day!!
