Tuesday – Still going strong!

Today went well! Thanks for the comments and suggestions yesterday. I ate healthier today in general – didn’t have as many empty calories. Skipped the sugar free pudding today! The only sweet thing I had was an apple w/ dip. I did another exercise video today – Cathe’s Rhythmic Step. And believe it or not, I was slightly sore from Leslie Sansone’s Walk Slim yesterday! There’s not a whole lot else to say about the day. Tomorrow promises to be a super-busy day, and I will really struggle to fit exercise in, but I’m really going to try. My concern is that I have to be ready to leave my house at 6:30pm and I have a meeting tomorrow afternoon at work, so I may not be able to leave work in time to workout.

Here’s the menu:

  • Breakfast: Omelet w/ .5 oz of cheddar cheese and .5 oz mozzarella cheese (250)
  • Morning Snack: About 2.5 serving of melba toast and 2 saltine crackers (150)
  • Workout: 45 minutes of Cathe Friedrich Low Impact Step (-350?)
  • Lunch: Southwest Turkey Burger w/ .5 oz of Cheddar Cheese (210)
  • Afternoon Snack: A large Granny Smith apple with some fruit dip (210)
  • Dinner: Sam’s Choice Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Chicken Breast, Green Beans, and a Pillsbury dinner roll (450)
  • Total cals eaten: 1270
  • Cals burned through exercise: -350?

    Your food looks awesome!

    Do you have a heart rate monitor? I bought the Polar F4 (online) and it has been VERY helpful in knowing how many calories I’m burning, especially since none of my cardio is on a treadmill or an elliptical machine so I have no way of knowing.

    Keep it up. You are doing so good…

      I do have a heart rate monitor, but unfortunately the battery recently died! And I have to figure out how to send it of to the company in order to have it replaced. But I do love it, and I really need to get that done.

    Sounds like you are doing great at being on track! Can you go for a walk at lunch during work tomorrow? One time I saw some exercises to do at your desk if you work in an office, but I can’t remember where. I didn’t pay much attention since I don’t work in that environment!

    Good choice to skip the empty calories! I try to make my calories healthy ones, but will sometimes cave into cravings. 😉
