Ugh! I am dead-tired. But my daughter and her things are all moved into her new home. I worked hard cleaning, washing, unpacking, searching, and assembling a complex set of shelving that weighed a ton. No idea how many calories I burned today, but it was a lot. :-) And to start the day, I did a SP pilates video, even though I really really didn't want to. Some of the stretches I've learned from SP came in handy.
OK, I have no idea what my calorie count was today, except that it was probably over. Breakfast was good at 319, and from there, I don't know. I provided food for all the help and brought:
Cape Cod feta and rosemary chips
Publix red skin potato salad
fresh broccoli, cauliflower, and baby carrots
cranberry Newton cookies
I know the chicken was reasonable; I ate veggies before chips; I ate slowly. I drank one 8 oz coke, the first non-diet one I've had in ages.
I'm guessing 2500? I'm sure it wasn't in range, but who knows how much of that I worked off, and I drank plenty of water all day. So that's my report for Day 34. Tomorrow will be back to...I was going to say "normal", but I'll stick to back to what's been "normal" for the last week! Today I just didn't worry about it.
OFF TO BED.

Woohoo, woohoo! I've started another good week. I've been doing longer videos, and I can feel a difference in my body. Stooping, reaching, stretching all feel easier and good. Noticed when I cleaned the bottom shelf of the pantry where the cat food is. When I emptied the cupboard, all three cats took turns sitting in it. "Hmm. Good place. It smells like FOOD."
Exercise: yardwork--still not my favorite thing to do, especially when it's so hot; a dumbell video, stretch & walk. I joined a new team, SP Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Challenge. I think it'll help me up my exercise.
101 snack #1
I'll fill in snack #2 after I figure out the calories on the pumpkin soup I'm making with a native Florida Seminole pumpkin from the garden. I know I'll be within range today!
247 snack #2 - pumpkin soup with raw sunflower seeds. I'm going to resist eating seconds. It was SOOO good.
AND, the scale FINALLY dropped a pound!

This has been another good day. I started off with a SP yoga video I hadn't done before and continued my major house clean-out. Took stuff to Salvation Army so there are no boxes sitting in my bedroom. Discovered that my Italian ice place has added sugar-free, woohoo.
118 snack #1
141 snack #2
I tried a SP menu suggestion for dinner, oriental rice. I didn't have peppers or water chestnuts, so added mushrooms instead and used brown rice, not white. Husband and I both thought it was really good. I didn't tell him a serving was half a cup!

Another really good day! I treated myself to a stability ball awhile back and used it for the first time today with a SP video. Fun! I could do everything.
I'm not thrilled with the new fitness tracker. What happened to the individual strength training exercises? I liked being able to add one or make up a workout with them. I also find that looking up videos isn't as easy as you'd expect. I type in exactly what the video is called--and get far too many options that have nothing to do with what I did. I do like the calories burned part, but that doesn't appear to apply to the videos.
Back to today's count:
157 snack #1
158 snack #2

I've had a good day. Slept well after being on the run all day yesterday, will go to bed early tonight too so I can catch up. I got a lot of cleaning done, dropped off stuff at a thriftshop, and took newspapers to the church.
For exercise, I tried a longer video today and looked for opportunities to get in extras such as calf rocking while putting gas in the car. Those minutes add up!
I've had good meals all day. I had chicken salad on pita bread for lunch and baked salmon with rosemary for dinner. Good totals today! Haven't had snack #2 yet, but it's planned. I like SP's idea of microwaving peanut butter and adding to shredded wheat.
158 snack #1
