January 10th:

Dinner was 2 cups of caesar salad and a piece of garlic toast. Over 2 litres of watery iced tea, and some coffee. The salad didn't sit well with my stomach, and I struggled through the 10 minute jog. The slower I went the easier it was (duh) so I kept it at a low pace tonight. Total walk 45 minutes.


1 cup caesar salad (do I really want to try it again?!), 1 cup of mixed raw veggies with dip, soup for dinner. Exercise - gym night tonight. Going for 25 minutes of jogging.

I did not have the pizza. Yay me. I did however have a slice of french bread with creamy crab filling.

January 10th:

1 slice french bread with creamy crab filling, 2 cups brown rice. Dinner is raw veggies with dip and maybe cream of broccoli soup. Exercise tonight is walking the dog with the infamous 10 minute jog.

My boyfriend says that my digital scale is broken. He thinks he weighs less than what he actually is. That would really suck for me. I don't think i'll be weighing myself much anymore. It kind of ruined my day when he told me that.

January 7th:

1/3 of a chicken quesadilla with sour cream, raw veggies and dip, 4 pieces sausage, an onion ring and tacos with salsa dip. Coffee. I had a glass of wine and three vodkas with watery iced tea. Over 2 litres of watery iced tea. I tried to jog the park again but this time something closed off in my throat and I wasn't able to finish. I'd say about 2/3 of the run. Total walk of 45 minutes and I needed a nap by the time I got home.

January 8th:

2 cups macaroni salad, coffee. We got pizza for dinner and I went crazy on it, but I did also have caesar salad (as if that makes up for it) and raw veggies with dip. Over 2 litres of water. Jogged the park and had to stop once for a vehicle, about 8 minutes total. Total walk 1 hour.

January 9th:

1/2 cup macaroni salad with cheese, 1/4 cup leftover caesar salad, 1 cup brown rice. I think dinner will be another cup of rice and if I can't stay away from the pizza - one piece. As well as raw veggies with dip. Exercise tonight is 1 hour of Aquasize! I'll be hurting tomorrow.

January 4th:

7 meatballs and 1/2 cup macaroni salad, 2 cups brown rice with broccoli and carrots. Coffee and over 2 litres of watery iced tea. Went jogging in the park with the dog - jogged the length of the road through the park but I don't know how far that is. It took about 3 songs, so maybe 10 minutes. The whole walk took an hour.

January 5th:

1 piece ww toast with light margarine; 1 cup brown rice with broccoli and carrots; 6" turkey, ham and bacon sub on ww with lettuce and mustard. Coffee and over 2 litres of watery iced tead. Gym night: 24 minutes jogging, total of 65 minutes on treadmill.

January 6th:

2 cups potato salad; 1 cup brown rice with 2 pork ribs. Coffee and over 2 litres of watery iced tea. Jogged through the park: 10 minutes, total walk of 1 hour. 13 minutes on elliptical. I'm eating cheesies tonight and watching movies. That's okay, right? RIGHT?!!!

Good morning.

January 3rd:

1/2 cup ww spaghetti, 5 meatballs, 1/2 cup macaroni salad; coffee, lots of watered down iced tea; 40 bite size tortillas; 2 bowls cream of broccoli soup. Jogged with the dog about 8 minutes or so outside, then decided to walk the rest of the way. Darn lungs couldn't handle the cold air I guess.

January 4th:

I brought 7 meatballs and the rest of the macaroni salad to work with me; I think dinner will be brown rice and vegetables. Gym night tonight - going for my 'record time' of 23 minutes jogging on the treadmill. Wish me luck!

PS - my dog Chewy is now a scaredy-cat. He is even afraid of yeild signs.

Happy New Year everyone.

January 1st:

sick, sick, sick. Due to the festive mood I was in the night before.

1 bowl cream of mushroom soup, 1 bottle gingerale, 1 cup ww spaghetti with cheese and ketchup. Some water, but not nearly enough. The only exercise I got today was leaning over the toilet.....

January 2nd:

boy, was I in a good mood today.

turkey sandwich on ww with mustard, light margarine and cheese; coffee coffee coffee (maybe that's why I got so much accomplished today); 5 meatballs and 1 cup ww spaghetti, 20 bite size tortillas. I took the dog for a walk/jog and I think we were gone for about 40 minutes.

January 3rd:

I brought 2 cups of macaroni salad, the leftover ww spaghetti (1/2 cup) and 5 more meatballs to work for lunch - but that's probably too much. I think dinner will be a 6" sub. Walk/jog with dog again tonight - over an hour hopefully.

Well, it's not a terrible start, is it?

Happy New Year! I'm so sorry to hear you have been sick. Not a fun way to start off the year. Good job on getting the exercise in. Enjoy the walk with the dog today.

Hope everyone had a good Christmas.

I exceeded my goal of running 20 minutes by adding another 3 minutes on to that on the 23rd, but unfortunately have not been back to the gym since. For some reason my mind and body won't work together on this. I'm too busy reading a new book I got from my brother.

Anyways, i've also been eating too many home-cooked meals and flying out to fast food restaurants when home-cooking is not available. Yes, you could say i've fallen off the wagon.

My New Year's resolution: To keep in touch more closely with family and friends. Of course, I also have the tried and apparently not true resolution to stick with the gym and the diet.

So let's see what January 1st brings...

Monday: cheese wrap, coffee and another cheese wrap for dinner. Exercise - 1 hour aquasize.

Tuesday: cheese wrap, coffee, battered fish with fries, coffee. Exercise - 2hr walk with dog through snow and ice and tiny little hills.

Wednesday: battered fish leftovers, coffee, cheese wrap. Exercise - 1.5hr gym (mostly treadmill - ran 16 minutes)

Thursday: ham and cheese sandwich, coffee, chicken burger, popcorn. Exercise - 2.5hr volleyball.

Friday: buffet with salad, chicken fingers, mashed potatoes and peas, coffee. Dinner is unsure. I asked dinner what it thought about tonight, but it didn't have an agreeable answer for me. If it would have said pizza it may have had a fighting chance....

Lots of exercise this week. 7 hours total so far!! 1.5hr gym time is scheduled for tonight, and a goal of running for 20 minutes. I will succeed!

Hi legcramps,

Great work on the exercise! I don't think I've ever had seven hours of exercise in a week - that's a lot! Looks like things are really going well. Happy Christmas!

Where did I leave off? Well, i'll just start from Monday.

Monday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and dinner, 1.5 hours aquasize

Tuesday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and dinner, 11 minutes elliptical

Wednesday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and a chicken burger with fries for dinner, 1 hour gym and at least an hour of mall-walking

Thursday: rice & cheese wrap for lunch and steak stew with a mean veggie dip and raw veggies, 1.5 hours volleyball

Friday: cheese wrap for lunch and ceasar salad with a slice of the boys' pizza. I skipped gym today because...well, just because. Of course, the night is not yet over...

Tomorrow: eggs and toast for breakfast, cheese wrap for lunch and grandma's cooking for dinner, 1.5 hours gym

Placed a bet with my boyfriend to see who could outrun who - but I have to work myself up to it on the treadmill first. I'm close to half an hour of running but I know he can do that too, so I have to go longer than that before I take him up on his bet.

Hi legcramps,

Thanks for the comment you left me. It's nice to know you're here for me in my hour of need! I liked the quote - what's it from? It sounds like a good one for the treadmill - "our feet must rise or we fall again"!

Good luck with that bet - you're a girl after my own heart. I've challenged my husband to various athletic contests and he just laughs in my face. So it's all down to you, legcramps - win one for the girls!
