Today was another beautiful day. I went for a walk at lunch and took a different way. I had no idea when I turned down the road that it would intersect with one of the roads my workplace is on. Today I did a big circle. It was 1.28 miles, a little longer than I was going before. The other route is shady and this one is in the sun but I was OK with that. It took me 18 minutes to walk 1.28 miles, and that's waiting for traffic while crossing the streets. Not too shabby for a fat chic! I LOVE the app for my phone called "Map My Run". It's great!
I'm going to go over my calories today. I made pasta salad the other day and the darn noodles are high in calories. It was a side to my lunch, so it wasn't a big helping. My family doesn't like the whole wheat pastas. I'm OK with that. There's worse things I could've eaten than pasta I guess. Like the Italian Beef and fries they asked me if I wanted for lunch today. It sounded so good but I immediately said no. Oh, and the peanut butter I had with my apples will also put me over. Again, I won't complain because it was a healthier snack than picking up a candy bar. I won't go over my calories by too much.
We recently moved and now have stairs to go up. Every morning I go up them at least twice. Usually in the evening I go up twice. I hate stairs! In the first 40 minutes of being home, I went up the stairs 3 times. That has to count for something, right?
