I am so looking forward to this three day weekend! I cleaned the first floor of my house as soon as I got home and took my dog for a walk. I had a tasty bbq marinated tuna steak - courtesy of Trader Joe's. Now I am going to relax.

I know there will be a lot of temptations this weekend including alcoholic beverages, so I am planning on hitting the treadmill using my weightloss module every morning. Jilian Michaels is gonna kick my butt!

Getting Ready for the Holiday Weekend!!

Thursday, June 30, 2011

The weekend is fast approaching, it will be so nice to have three days off from work. I really want to detail-clean my house (window sills, baseboards, etc.)
We always have a lot of company on July 4th, so it will give me good motivation to do it.

I am also going to find a 5k during the second weekend in July to run in.

After writing this, I realize I have my two goals for the weekend -- that and exercising, of course!!

Dinner Is My Downfall...

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

I don't know what happens at dinner time...yes, I do! I relax, take it easy and decide I am entitled to what I want after a long day at work and taking care of everyone else.

Tonight I had the rare opportunity to eat alone. I say that because I always cook a nice, nutritious meal for my family of four. I make sure everything is set, we say grace, then eat and talk. Then I clean up by myself. (Not sure why this began - they may put their plate in the dishwasher, but I do the rest).

Anyway, I barbecued two chicken shish-ka-babs with chicken, peppers, tomatoes, onions, and garlic pepper and the dangerous side - garlic mashed potatoes... oh, yeah, and two glasses of red wine! I shared the chicken with my dog, Roxy, but ate too much of the garlic mashed potatoes! The irony in this story is that I was reading an interview with Jilian Michaels in Fitness Magazine while I was eating dinner! I was fully aware of the irony as I ate the extra cup of mashed potatoes...but did it anyway! I felt that "I deserved it"!

Fortunately, when I plugged my nutrition numbers into SparkPeople, I found that I had stayed within my advised calories for the day. If I had been on another diet, I would have beaten myself up over it.

I know I am conscious of how much I eat when my family and/or friends are at the table.

BUT why did I eat that extra cup of garlic mashed potatoes when I felt filled???

    Hi R.M... because it tasted good and it's like soul food! I guess you could make it "skinnier" with chicken broth and skim milk instead of milk and butter.... but they are so yummy.. I love anything with garlic! Anyway, glad you're still within your calories... so you can enjoy it guilt-free... sometimes, I just say, "oooooo, that was so good, I think I'll have another!" Thank you for visiting my blog... yep, I guess your coworker is trying to set a good example for her daughter but that probably wasn't the best way to do it. I was also sorry to hear about your foot: you're right, rest may be the only cure... have you tried orthotics or new, better cushioned shoes? Good luck! emoticon

Stinking heel!!

Monday, June 27, 2011

My heel is hurting again today...didn't get to run or walk very far. I have been putting off going to the foot doctor, I hate getting the steroid shot -- it hurts and is not healthy. But, I am getting worried that if I don't do something I am going to end up sitting on the couch again for at least a month.



Boating is promoting walking and cardio -- Yayyy!!

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Well, now that we have a boat we are spending A LOT of time walking back and forth to the marina!! It's about a one mile walk from our house to the marina and back. I am going to start wearing my pedometer to keep tabs on the total miles.

When it's cooler at night, I am going to jog it to get my cardio in.
