food, glorious food

For breakfast I had a bowl of multi-grain cheerios with a nectarine cut up in it and skim milk. Lunch was a bowl of veggie soup, a chicken sandwich and some blueberries. For dinner I had turkey, stuffing, green beans and 2 rolls. After working out I had a bowl of light veggie soup. I drank tons of water today. I think I'm doing pretty well.

5K training

The kids and I decided we want to participate in the 5K our school is hosting next month. I walked/ran 1 1/4 miles today at the gym.

July 7th

I haven't been keeping very good track :( The last week and a half I was terrible at eating. Ken was in town and we ate out quite a bit and we ate lots of junk. No more! Yesterday I did pretty well. I was running errands in the morning, so I only had water. At about 11:30 I had soup and water. For snacks at work I had a banana, a chex mix 100 calorie pack and honey wheat pretzels. I had cereal for dinner. I did eat a couple of small cookies last night to try them. Bad, Bad. Today I should be better. I measured myself. I lost an inch on my waist and gained an inch on my hips. Arms and thighs stayed the same, although the same is much higher than they were in January or even March. Time to do better. We will be training to do a 5K walk. The extra walking should do the whole family some good. We need the exercise.
