Eating was pretty good today but I feel like I overate for some reason.  After I had dinner I just felt stuffed, I think I was still full from lunch.  I thought I would post a picture of my dinner so you could see how yummy it looked.

I think I'm taking tonight off from exercising because I'm going to get plenty of walking in tomorrow which I'll post about in another post in a few minutes.

Update:  I wasn't going to walk today but my husband said he would jog with me if I wanted so we went.  I jogged alittle of it maybe a 1/4 but I'm trying to build up my endurance.  We ended up walking 1.5 miles in 19 minutes around the neighborhood.

Now for my goals that I set for the week:
1. Water- 51 oz.
2. Sugar- stayed within limits
3. Fruit- 1 serving
4. Vegetables- lots at dinner
5. Carbs- stayed within limits
6. Exercise- 1.5 mil/19 min.
7. Soda- none
8. Fast food- none


  1. It does look good and you were probably stuffed because of all that fibre you're bulking up on. Good thing you like water, huh?

    I enjoy reading your meal me good and healthy ideas. Thanks.

  2. Yea I would be in trouble if I didn't drink alot of water.

    I don't know about getting ideas from me my eating is pretty boring but eating easy meals is helping me stay on track.
