Hello weekend!

Friday, May 31, 2013

It may have been a short week but it felt long. My oldest graduates High School on Sunday. It's hard to believe I'm old enough to have an 18 year old.

The scale isn't moving but I have a little more energy. The weight will eventually come off, I hope. I managed to walk yesterday and today. Yesterday I walked a mile in 15 minutes on lunch. Shortly after I finished it down poured. Yikes! Today I walked 1.29 miles in 19 1/2 minutes. I was a little sweaty afterwards but happy I got out there. It helps to break up the day.

Have a great weekend all!

Smoothies

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

I'm in LOVE with smoothies!! I make them with fresh or frozen fruit (no sweetener added to the frozen fruit), greek yogurt, a little honey, water, and ice. So yummy! Even my 2 1/2 year old likes them.

I haven't been walking because it's been cold and rainy. My long weekend was spent in the house and shopping. It was in the low 50's, gloomy, and drizzly. Today was warmer but rainy. Come on, Spring, it's almost Summer time!!!!

Not a bad day

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Today was another beautiful day. I went for a walk at lunch and took a different way. I had no idea when I turned down the road that it would intersect with one of the roads my workplace is on. Today I did a big circle. It was 1.28 miles, a little longer than I was going before. The other route is shady and this one is in the sun but I was OK with that. It took me 18 minutes to walk 1.28 miles, and that's waiting for traffic while crossing the streets. Not too shabby for a fat chic! I LOVE the app for my phone called "Map My Run". It's great!

I'm going to go over my calories today. I made pasta salad the other day and the darn noodles are high in calories. It was a side to my lunch, so it wasn't a big helping. My family doesn't like the whole wheat pastas. I'm OK with that. There's worse things I could've eaten than pasta I guess. Like the Italian Beef and fries they asked me if I wanted for lunch today. It sounded so good but I immediately said no. Oh, and the peanut butter I had with my apples will also put me over. Again, I won't complain because it was a healthier snack than picking up a candy bar. I won't go over my calories by too much.

We recently moved and now have stairs to go up. Every morning I go up them at least twice. Usually in the evening I go up twice. I hate stairs! In the first 40 minutes of being home, I went up the stairs 3 times. That has to count for something, right? emoticon

    That's awesome that you're making better food choices and not beating yourself up about not being perfect. emoticon You were moving pretty quick on that walk. Were you stopping for traffic or were they stopping for you? emoticon Don't worry you'll beat those stairs and find yourself purposely taking the stairs.

    LOl stairs....... lol we have 2 sets in our house and 5 to get into the house. I am on the waiting list for a new knee so there are days I don't like the stairs. but ... I have a fitbit and it tells me that today I have done39 inclines ( doesn't tell you when you go down) so been up those stairs and the hill in back of our house a few times too today.
I am not at my 10,000 steps yet but have another walk with the puppy, have gone just over 4 miles. so best stop reading blogs and get out and walk before dark.
Enjoy your stairs!! think how strong your calves will be!

Beautiful weather

Monday, May 20, 2013

The weather has been gorgeous here in SE Wisconsin. It was 88 degrees when I left work at 4:30.

I went for my walk at lunch today. I walked a mile and then sat outside and ate my lunch. When I got home we made dinner and then spent the next hour or so outside. I got some exercise today. I haven't lost much weight, but I already notice a difference when I'm doing things with my little one. I have more pep, even after working a long day.

Storms are supposed to roll in tonight after 10PM and can be severe. I'm hoping they blow north or south. I'd like to get a walk in again tomorrow.

McDonald's has a new smoothie, blueberry pomegranate. I think I'd like to start making my own smoothies. The stores have so many different frozen fruits and I hear some people make them with Greek yogurt. I'm going to research that. I have a little blender that is portable that I can take with me to work. Maybe a good afternoon snack or breakfast.

    Bill has been bringing me slushies from 7-11 but I told him to stop as I wasn't sure about calories. I now break up 15 calorie popsicles and let themget mushy and 4 makes a nice 60 cal snack. Sometimes I will add a little diet ginger ale to it

    Hope that you don't get what went through Oklahoma today. Good luck with the smoothies.
