Cannondale and Olives

Sunday, May 08, 2011

I got so motivated yesterday by reading the blogs and comments of my Daisy friends and in SP.

Today, I think I had one of my healthiest days in 2011.

I made a two hour ride to Weiz, a town nearby (34 km).

I had great resistance before the workout, taking out my bike, pumping up, getting the clothing, fill up the water, and then to ride.
So I said to myself, "let's just make it until I sit in the saddle, and then I decide if I still want to go".
Then I found myself on bike road R11. First, I did just a few kms, then a bit more, then I have seen the sign "Weiz 7km". So let's get there! When back, Endomondo clocked exactly 2:00:10 on my phone. We also get the max airmiles for the Daisy team!

For dinner, I think, I made my first ever own prepared healthy meal for myself. Or maybe meal in general. It is simple, and fast, but maybe this is why I finally made it. I used the olives and tomatoes that I bought yesterday.

I have tracked all my food today, 1847 kcal (limit 1870).

The 8 glasses of water are in.

I've slept 8 hours.

Let's have a healthy week!

    You have such a beautiful place to exercise! I would exercise more myself if I had such beautiful scenery to look at. Keep on that healthy habit!

    Sounds like you had a great day. Your photo is beautiful..Good job on tracking for the day. I have had to learn to cook all over again. I usually plan 5 meals a week from the sparkpeople recipes. Most of the recipes are very good and my family really likes them.

    You, my new Determined Daisy friend, are putting us to shame! Your blogs are wonderful and today's picture is dramatically beautiful. You are quite the photographer. Please tell me you are using serious equipment and not getting those kinds of pictures with what we call a "point and shoot" camera.

Keep up the good work!

First daisy day (Spring 5% W1 D1)

Saturday, May 07, 2011

I got excited to read the spring challenge to loose 5% some time ago, and I am happy finally this day is here, the start.

Starting weight is 86.5 kg (190 lbs).

In the afternoon I had a great workout in the spring sun, again exploring new terrains around Gleisdorf (Austria). First a 1km walk, then a 4 km run, then a 2 km walk. I only wanted to do a 10 min run, but somehow, I got into it again.

Then a trip to Interspar, and my fridge is full with stock: green onions, radishes, tomatoes, olives, green paprika, low calories cheese, low calorie ham and sausages, 99 kcal/pot yogurt snacks and chocolate pudding snacks, low fat milk, coca cola light, fruit cocktail snacks of 50 kcal, and lots of low cal Philadelphia cream cheese, and finally a pangasius fish for the freezer.
I also populated my fruit corner of the kitchen with banana, apples, oranges, and carrots.
I even found an ice cream snack of 24 kcal/cup.

I'm still hungry. My daily calorie range tops at 1870, and I am already at 1791 kcal. So I just drink a glass of water, and better go to sleep, before I snack.

Here's a pic from my afternoon run to fit the Daisy mood!

    I sometimes drink tea to make me feel full and I always have carrots ready to munch on.

    Ha-ha, 50g banana (one half of a small) for the snack, still in the kcal range, then I washed my teeth, and jumped to bed!

Thanks for all the encouragement, this is such a great team, I am so happy to be here!

    All that running - good for you! And I too like the populating the fruit corner. You make me want to go to the store and fill my fridge with healthy foods. Been picking up things here and there but could really use a full shop like you've got going on. This is going to be a great challenge!

    Great First Blog!

We are excited to have you as a daisy. I am loving that you have a "fruit corner". Populating a fruit corner sounds so much more poetic than 'refilled the fruit bowl' which is how I would have said it.

And I am envious of your finding 24kcal ice cream cups. That is a treat worthy of keeping in the freezer.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful photo. How lucky you are to be able have such scenery when you run. Good Luck to you and hope you have success with the 5% Challenge.
