Healthy You Check In



There's nothing like a bright and sunny day to make me feel motivated and energetic! Our brief dusting of snow that we got yesterday morning is all gone and the sun is shining brightly. I'm thankful for this extra burst of energy today because it was my first day of doing C25K Week 4 (run 3 min, walk 90 sec, run 5 min, walk 3 min and repeat). There were a few moments where I didn't think I could quite do it but I managed... and then decided to run for an extra 4 minutes at the end to make my total an even 20 minutes. Then I went on to do 35 min on the elliptical..... Yes, my legs still feel like jello. But it was worth it cuz *I* actually ran for a total of 20 minutes today and I'm super proud of that. Tomorrow will be a rest day, which is good because I'm sure I'll be sore.

Well, I had a late start to my day so I'm going to cut this short so I can get some work done...

Today's menu: (I'll edit this later with any changes)
Breakfast: 1/4 grapefruit, 1 Fiber One Bar (They were on sale at Safeway yesterday and they are YUMMY!) - 3.5 points
Lunch: Spinach and Feta Omelet (I'll post the recipe for this tomorrow), 1/2 grapefruit - 5 points
Snack: Apple, crackers and cheese 5 points
Supper: Chicken quesadilla with salsa and sour cream 7 points
Snack: London Fog, 1 point popcorn, grapefruit - 4 points

Nice to see the return of the good attitude!!! I knwo what you mean... soem days I just don't really feel like I"ve accomplished anything either... then I go to work and hold up a pair of pants that used to fit me... sometimes it can really change my perspective!

Easter Chocolate will always be there, but the gym will help kick that butt, I promise!! Good for you for the running... I'm still trying ot keep it up.... Lost a lot of motivation lately (school work is very little, but I"m still avoiding it like the plague, which involves lots of time on my TV and computer doing NOTHING) but hopefully I wont' gain(much) come Thursday and we'll both see those numbers we so deserve!!!

And get that cut elittle butt in those cute jeans! Look at yourself in the mirror and be proud!!
