I have been letting this slide. It makes sense to plan ahead, but I haven't been. I tend to stock the essentials for my go to meals, and eat them often, rather than trying new things. I don't mind eating the same thing day after day, but sometimes I get the itch to switch things up a little. I know I need to be consistent about eating a good breakfast. I was doing well, at eating at least a bowl of cereal and a banana, but the holidays got me a little sidetracked. So, starting tomorrow I will go back to eating that bowl of cereal in the morning, and not just making do with a piece of fruit. (I always eat something, but sometimes that something is pretty small.) I do better with lunch and dinner, and seem to have no trouble eating healthy snacks, so breakfast is my biggest stumbling block... still.
I walked over 8 miles today, despite the snow and ice. I had to blaze a trail through the drifts this morning so Cooper could take his morning walk. We had over a foot of snow, followed by a little light rain which put an icy crust on the drifts. It was hip deep in some sections. Cooper walked about 6 miles of today's mileage with me. Not bad for a little, short haired dog on a cold day.
I also did 250 jumping jacks today. I had to guess a little on the amount of time it took, as I forgot to time one set. I did them in sets of 50 today, rather than sets of 75 like I have been doing. I don't know why, it just felt right to do it that way today.
Tomorrow I have plans in the afternoon, so Cooper is going to spend the afternoon with my parents. This will disrupt my routine, but I can cope... and so will he. lol!
