First thing tomorrow I'm heading to the gym to sign up and hit the pool. I haven't been in the pool in years, but when I was younger it was the only physical activity I ever actually enjoyed. I'm hoping I will feel that way again. My doctor said she wanted me to start swimming because it won't cause injury to my feet, and I want to start swimming because I always loved it. Hopefully it will be as wonderful as the doctor and I think it will be!
Today has been okay. The Buddy and I didn't get to walk this morning. Mostly it boiled down to me not falling asleep til 4 am and not waking up in time to go. I was pretty sad about that, I was looking forward to it. My body had other plans I guess.
Food wise I have done pretty good. I made ham, broccoli cheese and rice casserole for dinner, which was really good. I had a big pile of steamed veggies with mine. Through the course of the day I also had a grilled chicken salad, a turkey sandwich, and pretzels with salsa. Unfortunately very early this morning I had mini muffins and milk. The calories weren't out of control with the mini muffins, but I'm sure it was enough to put me over my calories for the day. I haven't gone hog wild today, though, so I'm halfway on track.
Does anyone have suggestions to share of their most filling breakfasts? I'm going to wait to eat after I swim, cause I was always starving after being in the water. But I need to figure out what to eat that will fill me up without making me overeat and negate my activity. My plan is egg whites and salsa with toast and a banana. That's usually pretty filling. Any other suggestions?
I'm definitely cooking again tomorrow. I'm making chicken, potatoes and carrots in the slow cooker, letting it cook in fat free Italian dressing. Good stuff.
The highlight of the day? Persimmons. I had to go to the store to get more fruit and they had persimmons. I almost did a happy persimmon dance in the middle of Meijer. I LOVE them, and I knew it was approaching persimmon season, so I've been watching for them. Now I have a bag of them waiting for me in the kitchen. Yum!
Hope everyone has had a wonderful Sunday!
