Ok, so my day! Yes! I ate the usual breakfast of cereal (Raisin Bran this time), and my nutribar for lunch. I eschewed the much-maligned carrots for my snack and chose some nice, crisp grapes instead. Mmmm. When I poked my head into the staff room I was a bit disturbed by the sight of multiple packs of chocolate cookies. Luckily there were also oranges! I had oranges instead. As I see it the stats thus far are:
Snack Monster : 0
Suck it Snack Monster!!
After work I was again very hungry, so I had an applesauce cup for a snack. Then Jason and I tried a chipotle sausage for dinner, hot off the grill, but I didn't like the flavour. I had a few chunks of boiled white potatoes (easy on the margarine!), salad and some of that macaroni salad from last night. I was ALMOST full by the time I finished. I imagine my stomach will start shrinking a bit soon. That will be nice!
That leaves me with my old friend exercise. Oh, how I loathe thee exercise. You mock me with your necessity for good health and weight loss. You will make me live a longer, better life, you heart-rate increasing, breath-taking, muscle-aching entity of evil!! Grrr!!
Ok, I'm done. Ahh feel better now. Yes, so I did exercise today despite the extreme desire to do otherwise (and by otherwise, I mean sit on my oh-so comfortable ass). I did another walk in the park, this time with my friend and colleague, Kim. It was another gorgeous day (our weather has seriously ROCKED lately!), and walking with Kim was a real treat. Thanks Kim!! The time just flew by while we talked and walked. I was so surprised when she said we had to head back. Oh? Work? Righto! When I got home, I rode the bike for 15 minutes to get my heart rate up a bit and use the free weights. Really hard to get motivated to do that. Really.
Another good day under my belt, I must say!
Stats for the day:
Exercise: 50 min. moderate intensity
