legcramps - Wednesday Aug 13, 2014

In a little more than one week's time, I am taking a trip to New York! I can't wait; it will be so nice to have a break from work and all the daily mundane things.

Same foods yesterday as on Monday; walked 20 minutes on the treadmill just to get some exercise in and try out different shoes to see which ones would be best to walk around in New York with.

Heading to the driving range today for about an hour so will get some exercise in with that.

Started doing 5 minutes of stretching three times a day, before bed and after I wake up each morning, and at lunchtime. Just some twists and leg stretches, stuff like that. But it adds up, and i've fallen off the wagon with regard to stretching, so I need to get back on.

I am thinking about making a few specific goals over the winter months, to keep me healthy and fit, and so that i'm only focusing on a few things rather than ALL THE THINGS, which I have a tendency to do and then become overwhelmed and then stop doing anything at all.

I haven't reached my goal of biking 30 miles yet this summer; it's not looking good, but hopefully after my trip I will be able to get this done. I got to 22.5 miles and then the excuses started happening.

Hi good to see you on. I understand the overwhelming goals I am also trying to get away from that. I don't want the guilt trip after I have not done what I am suppose to do. LOL Have a great day.

Thanks for the welcome back!

Good going with the bike ride even though you haven't hit 30. Great idea for the goals:-)

I didn't realize I haven't posted since last week. But this morning I noticed something when I was looking back on my food entries, and it's a bit of a benchmark, so I wanted to share:

I have not had coffee for one week. Today is Day 8 of no coffee. I wasn't really trying to not drink coffee, it just sort of happened with all the water i've been drinking. I just haven't felt like having any. Strange.

And if you were wondering - no, I haven't noticed any changes. I am still grumpy in the mornings, coffee or no coffee LOL.

Switched up the meal plan for a ten day period (started Sunday):

8AM - 1/2c plain oatmeal, 1/2c blueberries, 8oz almond milk

11AM - 1c raw celery, 3 tblspns peanut butter

1PM - salad: 1-2c greens, 1/2c corn, 1/2c peas, red pepper, 1 fried egg, 1 tblspn crumbled bacon, 2 tblspns dressing

4PM - 1/2c cottage cheese, 1 banana

5PM - 1c raw carrots (I get extra snacky around this time)

7PM - 1 chicken breast, 1/2c rice, 1c steamed broccoli

Works out to 1600-1700 calories, with a crapton of protein and fibre

hey girl :) When I read your entries, I feel like sometimes I see a bit of myself in you. Like we are one of a kind lol. Like we should be related.

I liked reading your food choices today, you seem to be eating very healthy. for myself, I made a major change this week: I actually had a healthy dinner / healthier choices after work. Usually, it's coffee and fruit or something like that. But, with so many health things going on (period, uti, shin splints) I couldn't bear being as unhealthy as I usually am in terms of food. and you know what, I definitely did feel better for eating better. it's a bit more planning, but, as long as I have the food available pretty much all on sunday I can get through the week. it's just a lot of purchasing on the weekend...but I can attest that eating better does help a person feel better. lol...but the temptations :)
