Mall Walked

Wednesday, July 02, 2008

I went to Sunrise Mall and walked for 3 miles--it was soo nice and cool--met some nice women --a lot of folks walk there--it opens for walking before it opens for shopping.
I went to Barnes & Noble and looked through some diet books that I had heard of--none worth buying.
I came home and had lunch and invented a cookie that I can eat that is mainly 1/4bran, 1/4oats, a container of baby prune, Splenda, a T sugar, 1 egg white, 1/2 baking powder, 1T smooth PB, 1T buttermilk--1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice--I just started dumping stuff that sounded like it would make a cookie I could eat and not ruin my eating plan. I wrote this down because I liked them and I will try them again some time soon. I am not sure that this was the amounts--sooo I will have to test the cookie again.
Smoothie---1/2 cup water --1/2 cup mixed berries from Costco
heaping T Bran--heaping T of Flax seed
2c. homemade veg soup+1/4 cup crushed corn chips

Snack: Cookies & 1 c. ff milk---1/2 c carrot juice

Chicken Broth With green beans & chopped garlic

Ride bike for 30 minutes while watching TV.

I hope your having a positive day!!

  You go Mary!! Sounds like an interesting cookie you got going there. I am glad you are using flax seed , I add it to a lot of things too, Are you a homemade juicer? I have thought about getting one. Glad you enjoyed your walk and met some nice people. It is funny how we look at all these cook books when we really know what we need to do! I have them too! LOL. Keep up the great work. I can see those pounds just melting away!! Hugs. Pat

Breakfast: 1c. eggbeaters, 2 skinless chicken legs, water -coffee
Ride bike 60 minutes
Walk away from house for 30 minutes--take time to smell the roses and smile.
Lunch: soup with ff cheese--,
Dinner: salmon--large green salad
Snack: 2T popcorn kernels, 2sides green salad-1/4 of the package of dressing @ Berger King

Go to The Home Depot for Miracle Grow Soil and liquid for the lawn--it need something --new and it is light green.
Weed garden--wish that I could just let them grow without feeling guilty. My hands hurt --so at least pull a few. Don't want a jungle out there!!
Read the paper when I reach Base --stop and take a break in my walk.
Check for stuff for my study/exercise room--It needs organizing--soon I will be through with the outside of the house and then I can do the fun stuff--different furniture, ect.
Ride the bike every time I pass it--I moved it between the living room and the kitchen. Even if it is to ride it for a minute!!!!
Work on posture--I have noticed that I am not walking with shoulders back--I am working on developing my back muscles, so that I can stand straighter without sooo much effort.
I hope your day is going well.
