After work, today, I NEEDED a burger and fries for dinner! I opted to go to the grocery store and wander around instead - my goal was to browse and pick up some sweet potatoes (not for today but for this week) .... I forgot I also needed to get some pears and grapefruit.
I did buy a handbasket and a half of stuff instead. Weight Watchers Chicken Burger, Various kinds of greens for my salads, different kinds of low-fat cheese, Gardenburgers, Simply Lemonade with Mango, carton of Egg Whites, and different kinds of snacks listed in the book for under 150 calories and under 100 calories.
Still have to go back to the store for the pears and grapefruit. Hmmmm.
Meal 4 ended up being 2 sliced baby zucchini with Herbes de Provence and a grilled Chicken Burger with 2tsp reduced-fat grated Parmesan cheese. Took care of my fix without blowing the diet - yum!

Oh, yeh, now I remember why stretching is so important! Day 3 I made sure to stretch really good after my walk/run. I've been achy sore lately for my workouts.
I get 2 rest days a week. In the past week, I spent one of them resting and the other I went dancing for about 30 minutes with friends. When I'm working out but not doing C210K, I'm doing recumbent bike/elliptical/treadmill walking intervals.
My longest workout was yesterday, Tuesday. My Last Chance Workout was 60 minutes long.
I've been achy sore because I haven't been stretching enough. I need to hunt up some good yoga videos online.

I lost 8 lbs during week 1 and as long as I kept drinking my water and ate everything I was supposed to (and we do have choices listed) I didn't feel hungry.
Things really get switched around with what I consider a meal in week 2. Smoothies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (not all on the same day). I am on the hunt for good veggie and healthy protein smoothies so I am drinking more than fruity ones.
Tonight, I drank a pumpkin smoothie (pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices and a touch of maple syrup). I'll finish it for meal 3 tomorrow.

Everything going well, except I'm HUNGRY today! I need to drink more water but I'm wondering if something else isn't going on. I ended up splurging on 60 calorie hot cocoa before hitting the gym.
At the gym, I completed a 60 minute workout. Looking forward to tomorrow's weigh in. I did 15 on the stationary bike, 10 on the elliptical, and 35 on the treadmill.
Here's what I had for meal 4 today. 1 cup spaghetti squash, diced tomatoes, and Italian seasoning. 12 shrimp (because I thought I'd thawed salmon but discovered shrimp instead, but yum!)
UPDATE: Checked my tracker and for the 2nd time in the past week, I haven't been eating enough. I need to get this under control. No wonder I was hungry.

I wanted to do this run yesterday but it was windy and cold (in the 30s) and the city gym was closed. Today the high was about 30 (mostly in the 20s) so headed back over to the gym and used the treadmill. On my final minute, I cranked it up to 12 min/mile but mostly did 20min/mi walks (for 1.5 minute intervals) and 15min/mi runs (for 1 minute intervals). 30 minute workout at about 17 min/mi average pace. Feeling sore even after a hot shower and stretching.
