Day 18

Well, the Culligan man finally came and replenished our water at work today.  It has been gone for two days so I haven't been very good with my water intake.  Today was much better with some nice cold, easily accessible water. I did really good on my calories today.  I was actually afraid I was a little too low, but I have been feeling fine so I am going with it.  I did yoga today with it muted most of the time and actually quite enjoyed it.  So I was right, it isn't yoga I hate, but the annoying lady!!

What's for dinner

When I was younger my Grandma showed me a great idea for chicken.  Instead of marinating it in those high sodium and who-knows-what's-in-it whatevers she marinated it in lemon juice.  I love my chicken that way.  It is so yummy without the added calories and sodium.  I had a few grapefruit so the other day I decided to marinate my chicken in grapefruit juice.  It had a great flavor, but I overcooked the chicken a bit and it got kinda dry.  So for a quick dinner, marinate some chicken in fresh citrus juice of your choice, throw it on the grill for a few minutes and serve over brown rice or whole wheat pasta and add a yummy salad to the side.  All in all you are looking at less than 300 calories for a pretty great dinner.

Days 16 and 17

Well, I sure didn't repeat my great day on Monday for the last two days.  I was really pushing it with calories and I didn't have the time to get my workout in today.  I did get a decent workout yesterday though.  I am really loving the Treadclimber for my cardio.  I still love Zumba and need to do more yoga, but with the Treadclimber I can just put on a movie or a TV show and concentrate on that instead of how tired I am or how annoying the instructor is.  I am going to continue to be really busy for the rest of the month so I am going to have to try a lot harder to get my workouts in.  I wish it was warm enough for me to walk to work so I could at least get that much in, but it is way to cold for that to be happening anytime soon!  Any suggestions on how to continue getting some exercise with extremely limited time?

Days 12-15

Friday- I had to take it easy with my calories for breakfast and lunch because I knew we were going out for dinner and I wouldn't have many low cal options. I also knew I wouldn't have time to work out if I didn't get up early and do it in the morning, which I didn't. In the end even with no exercise and a going out to eat I still did well on my calories.

Saturday- I did nothing active on Saturday! Unless you count going to Costco active. Oh, and I went over on my calories by a little. I am going to go ahead and say oh, well it was the weekend. Not a great attitude to have, but I do think it is okay to take a day for yourself sometimes as long as you don't do it too often and don't go way far off the fitness path.

Sunday- I am not 100% sure how I did with my calories cause I didn't track them exactly, but even though I ate WAY too much for lunch I don't think I went over much if any. And as with all Sundays, no exercise.

Monday- So far today I have almost 2 hours of exercise in and most of my water, and the day is only half done. Aaron is going to put me through a good work out on the Bowflex tonight and I want to do Yoga today. With all that exercise and good eating choices today I should be great on my calories.

Day Eleven and other

I have come to a realization. This blog is boring. I am pretty sure that my calorie and exercise habits are not actually interesting to anyone, but I still want you here so I am going to try and give you a little enticement to come on over. I am going to start posting yummy, healthy recipes and maybe even some fitness ideas you can use. Now to the hum-drum of it all...

Day Eleven
I was SO snacky yesterday! Luckily I had fairly a fairly low cal breakfast and lunch so I could afford it, but I hate that feeling where all I want to do is snack, but I know I shouldn't. Ug. I hit the treadclimber and did some yoga so I got my exercise in. I think it is getting easier for me to go home and work out now that I have been doing it consistently for a bit. I don't dread it as much anymore so I am super happy to be working past that milestone.

Day Ten (I think)

So I am liking the Treadclimber. I can tell it is working for me because I want to quit after about 10 minutes every time. I am blogging from my phone and it is taking forever so I'll just say that it was a good day all around for calories exercises and water. Oh and I made my own tortilla chips that have fewer calories than the regular store bought kind. Those and some fresh homemade salsa were a great little snack for me. I highly recommend it.
