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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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?!!!

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.
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.
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.....
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.
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?

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...
- Friday Dec 23, 2005
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!

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.
