Spring Challenge--Day 1

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Beginning weigh in follows a not so stellar week of only getting to the gym once, and eating at least one meal out every day! So my weigh in was high but I know that a lot of that is water weight due to the sodium in restaurant food.

All in all, not a bad day. I had a healthy breakfast and spent the day at an herb & garden fair with my son & daughter in law, so a lot of walking around enjoying a pleasant day. Will also lead to lots of future time gardening, which is very healthy for body & soul.

Another good thing about today was the walk I just got back from with my dog. What a beautiful, crisp spring evening--very relaxing to hear the birds all settling in for the night. I also had a fairly good dinner of haddock & cauliflower. Although I did have a piece of pie for dessert.

Another downfall at lunch, when the kids decided to hit Sonic on the way home from the herb fair. I had a chicken toaster & a tropical smoothie. The chicken toaster looked like the healthiest thing on the menu, and the smoothie was good, but I should have just gotten water. I didn't drink enough of it today.

Tomorrow's a full day of work, so the challenge, as always is not to graze as I am working. I work in a restaurant, so there are always temptations. Tomorrow I will blog about how I avoided them!

On to day 2!

    Sounds like a pretty decent day. Awareness is one of the keys and you are certainly aware. We are never going to do this perfectly but we keep trying don't we?

    We should set a day and time and walk again, what do you think?
