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.

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

Friday, April 3, 2009


okay...so I was in bed at 11:30 last night (win) but ended up reading until 12:45am.... hum...perhaps "bed time" was not the real issue here!

Goals for April 3, 2009
1. Done. Activia yogurt eaten at 7:30am
2. Done. Sadly, my legs have that sore quality that suggest I've been "working hard". I admit yesterday I did about 2x as much walking as normal in a day, but my goodness! It was not that much! Happy to be going in the right direction here. :)
3. Done. I was totally exhausted from the late night yesterday.
4. N/A...making plans on what I'm going to do tomorrow - I'm thinking that its going to be a hike of some sort.
5. Done. I really need to remember what day it is - I did 4 and it was the third...hello? Am I in there? lol So I'm going to keep track of how many fulls, how many half (from the knees) and how many "sissy" push ups (knees tucked up and arm press only) I do for each day...then I can track my progress.

Bfast1: pot of activia yogurt
Bfast2: banana + coffee with cream
Snack1: Cashew Cookie Lara bar (yum!)
Snack 2: med half sweet mocha with skim milk
Snack 3: 1 pot fat free vanilla pudding (left over from post surgery foods)
Lunch: Chicken teyiaki with rice and veggies
Snack 4: 4 mini chocolate bars
Snack5: Skim milk London Fog tea lattee, molasses cookie
Dinner1: 1 egg, 1/2 egg whites, 1/2 spinach, 3oz feta cheese, 1 whole wheat pita, 1T becel
Dinner2: 2 turkey&oat burgers, 1 w.w. pita, 2T mustard, 1T ketchup, 1c greens, 1 big bag terra chips.*

Tonight is the last of my running classes sadly. I've not been able to go and I still won't be able to run tonight. The stitches are still mighty tender and I don't want to aggravate them at all while I'm still healing. Bummer. I do have my weekend plans though - so I have been enjoying the extra walking and this week, and so as soon as I can, I want to start my running again.

Same for my yoga class...what a waste! I wish that I hadn't bother to sign up with this surgery. I can't spend time with my head down like what is required in the class... I would be in agony. I'll just have to carry on with my other activities. Shame. I quite liked the yoga.

* updated Saturday. Last night I went to running and then on the way home started having some really terrible food thoughts. It started with Wendy's salad, then decided that I wanted a burger, then forced myself to go to the grocery store and get ground turkey for turkey burgers. Then I let myself look down the chip isle and saw the terra chips.. I bought them and ate the whole bag while cooking. So... not the greatest of evening, but in terms of what I could have done this is still lots better then getting in the drivethrough at McTransfat and getting a couple of burgers, fries and a shake. Ug!

You're doing great at meeting your goals :) I like how you list them out and show if you met them or not.

Just stopping by to catch up! Good luck with your goals and wishing you a speedy recovery after surgery x

Natasha said...

Great job with your goals so far. I have to admit that when I read your daily posting of your goal success that it helps me achieve the daily goals I've set for myself. So, thanks!

You've been doing really well at setting and fulfilling your goals. Well done!

You're right - you did do a lot better than you could have. Despite the chips, going to the grocery store for turkey to make burgers was far better than the drive through!
