Welcome

Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

Walk it off

I had a bad Friday - even though I had such a great weigh-in. Forget "jinxing"
more like "sabotaging". But regardless, lunch on Friday was a burger, side salad and small amount of fries. The rest of the day went well - I even ate breakfast!!

Dinner was pretty darn good, I had some friends over to cook for and I made quinoa for the first time.

Appy - 1 massive scallop and 1 jumbo shrimp with garlic butter, sun dried tomato and dijon mustard)
Dinner - pork tenderloin (marinated in ginger, pepper and brown splenda)
quinoa pilaf (1/2 water. 1/2 chicken stock, ground ginger, and pepper)
mixed veggies ( spinach, snow peas, asparagus and broccoli)
Dessert - fatty, icing covered cupcakes! I had two. ug.

Today I woke up and felt tired and bloated... yep - not anywhere near enough water yesterday. Ug. Bad move. Luckily I had read this post last night before tucking into bed.

I was sitting at the computer, thanking about coffee and danishes and fatty bad foods that I could go and buy... and I thought. Right... first of all - put on your clothes - you lady are going for a walk - the sun is and you WILL do it. I hoped in the car and took off to one of my fav walking areas and did 35min in the sun. How awesome does that feel after. :)

Tonight is movie night... its going to be a bad one I know, likely pizza. I'm eating pre-movie date with Friends and I'm going to be extra conscious of my portion sizes. AND drink water like a man fresh from the desert!

Tomorrow I'm back to running and I have my yoga. I'm ever so excited, I really loving it. I also joined another yoga class for Wednesday nights - a starter yoga that will give me the basics of another style.

All in all, its a pretty good start to the weekend.

Did you like the Quinoa?
I tried it once and it was too 'seedy'.. I don't know.. maybe i cooked it wrong!

Have a great rest of the weekend!

I enjoyed it actually, its not the most yummy thing that I've had ever. But I think I'll keep on trying a few things with it and see what I can do to spice it up.

Great job on making yourself go for a walk! :)

Your last post about weighing first on one foot then the other made me laugh. I do the same thing every morning :)

Way to go on the walk. So glad to hear you did that.

Ohh how I love scallops and your mixed veggies sound yummy!

Glad you enjoyed the walk. Once you get out there it does feel good. I sometimes lack the motivation to get myself out, but once I do I feel very pleased with myself.
