Day Seventy-six - Treating Myself - 3/18/10

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Sorry this is going to be short and sweet. I put myself on a sparking timer tonight and I am over by 1/2 hr....old habits die hard. I did promise myself some quiet me time just meditating and reading before bed tonight.

Brought home mexican for my sis tonight from her favorite place. She had our usual, but I changed things up for me. Ususally have three dorados (fried tacos) with rice, beans, cheese and a LARGE horchata - sweet spiced rice milk. I had shrimp diablo and rice no beans and saved half of the rice, with 3 slivers of avocado and one and a half small corn tortillas,lettuce and tomato.
That was really stepping out on a limb of faith since I hadn't a chance to track the food I'd eaten so far today. I had everything written down though and after dinner tracked all my food for the day and I had enough left for a skinny cow ice cream sandwich and a turtle candy for my snack - I know, not exactly healthy, but I was soooo happy for making such wise choices the rest of the day - I deserved a treat and still was within all my limits.

Did twenty five minutes of stretching and upper body ST .... my right calf is still sore from what I assume is running in the new shoes. My gaait is definately different. Tomorrow may be light also, I don't want to injure anything this close to the race (May)....still have a long way to go and can't afford to hurt myself now.

Hope you are all well...tried to make contact with as many of you as possible. I will do more tomorrow and Sunday is my day off, so it'sd catch up day.

Take care all and have a great weekend!!!

    You are doing great with diet and exercise. Reading your blog is also an inspiration to us. A little treat now n then is ok I think. I do that too and promise I will burn it the next day. Take care. Keep it up. I am trying to be right behind you!!! emoticon

    Doesn't it make you feel proud when all that you have learned starts coming through in healthy choices? I sometimes feel surprised that I did so well without the tracker, but that is the goal we are hoping to achieve to maintain our goal weight once we get there. Keep up the good work.
Our snow storm has gone south of us... I am hoping we miss it all together.
Have a great weekend.

    Great job monitoring your food.

My right calf is what is giving me my problems. Make sure you rest now so it doesn't get worse. I can tell that I won't be doing any running this weekend. My leg is still sore to walk on, but I think it is getting better. It will be two weeks of down time for me. So take a day or two of taking it easy on your leg now or it could be weeks later. This is one of those "learn from my mistakes" kind of things.

Hope the rest of your week goes well and I'll pray for you.
