Four day streak

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Yesterday was challenging at work, but I managed to survive without resorting to chocolate to get me through it. Woohoo for that!

For the last two days, I've ended up being below target on calories at the end of the day. On Tuesday, I just left the calories uneaten, but yesterday I decided I needed to get the calories up to the minimum amount. Choices considered were a Cadbury Egg... an idea pondered and abandoned. A glass of skim milk with Hershey's syrup... given serious consideration to the point of calculating the nutritional values. Greek yogurt with fruit... just a fleeting idea that didn't get much mental traction. Then I finally decided on a glass of skim milk (sans Hershey's), dried apricots and dry roasted peanuts. I really enjoyed my little treat while watching my hour of bedtime TV.

Played Wii Sports again last night and got my husband, the Kangarooman, to do a little bowling with me. It was fun and we had a good time. After two games of bowling, he sat and watched while I did the fitness challenge. In the three nights I've been doing that, I've watched my fitness age go from 52 to 48. Since I'm 57, I'm happy with that. Since I've been almost completely sedentary for months, I was surprised to make anything below my actual age. Hopefully, as I continue with this, I will see my fitness age drop some more.

    Don't let your calorie deficit get higher than 500 - I find that protein and milk will get me close to where I need to be!

    Gotta love that Wii sports!
