I think my eating was ok today.  I was suppose to have more for dinner but my roasted yellow squash, zucchini and onions isn't done yet but I'm glad its not because I'm stuffed on what I have eaten already.

While I was walking I left my squash, zucchini mixture in the oven sweating with the oven off and boy if it didn't look yummy when I got back, I know what I'm having for dinner tomorrow night.

I really need to go exercise but its already 6:15 and I still have stuff cooking in the oven and I just don't think I have time to go.  I know I need to go though because tomorrow is weigh in day.  Ok I guess I'm going I really need this workout.  Well that little voice talked me into going for my walk and I just finished it.  I did 2.1 miles around the neighborhood in 28 minutes.

Now for my goals that I set for the week:
1. Water- 51 oz.
2. Sugar- stayed within limits
3. Fruit- 1 servings today
4. Vegetables- plenty at dinner
5. Carbs- stayed within limits
6. Exercise- walked 2.1 mil/28 min.
7. Soda- none
8. Fast food- none


  1. Great job! Beware the carb heavy breakfasts. Sometimes they lead to cravings. Good job on the forcing in the workout. For me, I have to get it done early. For some reason my brain says dinner = I'm done for the day. I really have trouble w/ evening exercise. The more water you drink, the more you lose. It's a rule. You're doing awesome

  2. Thank you so much. I have planned to exercise in the mornings before but I just never seem to get to it so I wait until the sun starts going down and then do it. My goal is to drink 128 oz of water a day but I just can't seem to get that much in. I think I'm going to have to lower that goal alittle.

  3. I'm sure you can eventually get 128 oz. Originally, I couldn't get 16 oz. in. Now, I'm on 32 oz. It just has to be gradual. Plus, you can drink diet snapple and tea and coffee (without all the additives) and that counts as fluid as well!
