This morning there's a parents' visit event at my son's school, so I'm taking my "lunch hour" for that, and therefore can't do my run at noon. I am pretty bummed about this but I had a good talk with myself about what's most important, and showing up for my kid today beats losing these few pounds. Maybe I can do a DVD workout when we get home, although it won't be a C25K run since we don't have a treadmill.
Oh well. Tomorrow. Week 5 begins.
B - instant oatmeal, coffee w/ ff creamer
L - salad with salmon, fried beets (!), field greens, pumpkin seeds, vinaigrette; cup of shrimp bisque (out w/co-workers and it was sooo good!)
S - 16 Wheat Thins; a few M&Ms
D - 3.5-oz chicken breast, teriyaki sauce, corn, about 1/2 c. of an alfredo pasta side dish
W - 6 cups
E - I did some squats but didn't get my ten mintues like I'd planned.
So today, maybe Coach Nicole and I will have a little pow-wow after work.

Another within range day yesterday.
B - 2 WW pumpkin muffins (homemade), coffee, FF creamer
L - 1.5 c tomato soup, cucumbers/carrots (raw) with hummus (.25 c), v8
S - honey wheat bread, dijon mustard, 2 thin slices ham
D - small meatball sub w/tomato sauce, .25 c mozzarella, 1 c. steamed broccoli, a few potato chips
S - sugar free gum again! fell asleep on the couch with it in my mouth LOL
W - 7 cups
E - C25K W4D3 (30 min) treadmill; upper body strength*
*I'm adding strength training back in to my rotation. DUH. I feel like kind-of an idiot because SP has articles all over the site saying women, esp., should be doing strength -- it HELPS YOU LOSE WEIGHT. But I didn't realize. Anyway, I feel like my cardio is finally in place, so I'm comfortable adding strength in now. Here's to Feeling The Good Sore!
Today I weighed in at 144.5. That's down 1.5 lbs from YESTERDAY, which I know isn't accurate - there's no way I could lose 1.5 lbs in one day - but I am gratified to see the scale moving in the right direction, and AWAY from that stupid 147 that appeared after Christmas.
I am trying REALLY hard to stay within my ranges and drink lots of water this week. Maybe it's helping...? Let's hope so.
February is here!

I didn't go over in any nutritional ranges yesterday! Gotta celebrate the small victories.
B - instant oatmeal, coffee w/1% milk, 1/2 apple, 2 oz cheddar
L - turkey subway (no mayo, no chs, all the veggies), baked Lays
S - 1/3 c. craisins, Diet Coke, one 2-bite brownie
D - 1.5 c. tomato soup, grilled cheese (2% cheese, made w/Pam, on wheat)
S - 1/4 cup vanilla ice cream with sliced strawberries
W - 7 cups
E - none yesterday
I really wanted something else after putting the kids to bed but I shoved a piece of sugar-free gum in my mouth and cut that craving right off. I'm having a hard time with the 8pm to 10 pm hours lately (well, and the 4 pm to 6 pm hours, if I'm honest).
It was a good day.

Work's been different this week because we have a guest in town, so my lunch hours have been taken up the last 2 days (and today, also). No running except on Monday. (I am going to try for Saturday.) But I have done my 10 minutes a day. Yesterday I barely made it; right before bed I did some leg raises and reverse crunches and yoga. It counts in my book!
I want that nail polish I promised myself as a reward, darnit!
