Great job yesterday; and good start to today! Have a great weekend.


niftyjack on 01/25/2013:
Good try at the gym! Did you sprain your ankle, or is it just being tetchy? If it still hurts the next time, it might be a good idea to wrap a bandage around it nice and tight for support. Or, if it's really bad, maybe give the poor thing a day or two to recover?

Nice job on the exercise yesterday; also I like your new goals.

Have an awesome day today :)

Your chart looks good and healthy. Someday my chart could look something like that. An inspiration.

6:00/6:30am breakfast: 2 cups fiber one and almond milk 280; chocolate Quest protein bar microwaved for 20 seconds and now hot like a brownie 170: 450, great.

snack: 150

snack: 200

big lunch & snacking after 1000, all healthy, but big. 1000

biggish dinner: lots of pretzels, but also healthy veggies & tofu. 800 at most.

2600 total cal, lol, seems to be the exact calories i've been having for the past few days...

exercise: hour bootcamp in AM, 5 mi jog, one mile walk. GOOD.

I have some new goals, still fitness related.

1. to keep up weightlifting - preferably 2x per week (i would do more, but bootcamp involves some weights and doing any more is counterproductive in my opinion), this week included. no pushups till thursday though...since i did them yesterday & today at bootcamp!

2. Cardio, Cardio, Cardio.  I simply am not satisfied with my cardio fitness level, at all! I will do longer runs every weekend now - 5 mi at least - which is new for me.  By April, I'd like to see myself able to run 6-7 miles comfortably (even if slowly).  The way I plan to achieve this goal is quite easy: do more cardio...and make sure to have the hour lunch break so i can leave the building and walk, even if only a mile or even less, better than NOTHING. and healthy to move during the day!

around 2600 cal, not too shabby, not great (was hungry when i got home at 9:30pm after my walk...only had a protein bar and veggies after work at 6), but not terrible...will try to balance it out with the next few days :-)

snack before gym: not sure...maybe granola bar and coffee
