7:10 woke-up, took meds, drank glass of water
7:20 walked 25 minutes until my sciatica made it unbearable (Rxed 30-45 firstname.lastname@example.org mph!)
8:00 ate breakfast, 8 slices (4.4 oz) canadian bacon, 2 slices ww bread, 1T raw almond butter, 1c canteloupe
My morning snack and lunch are packed. Still need to pick up almonds and strawberries from the store this morning, so my snacks are complete for the day.
10:30 snack – 1c plain non-fat yogurt, 2 packets of Truvia, 1 med. banana, 1oz. (24 pieces) raw almonds (had to eat these in the car)
12:40 lunch – 2c romaine lettuce, 2c raw broccoli florets, 6oz chicken breast, 1T evoo, Mrs. Dash, 5oz sweet potatoes
2 cups of raw broccoli is a LOT of broccoli! I just couldn’t stuff the last couple of florets in my mouth. I forgot to pack my sweet potatoes in my lunch, so during lunch time, I drove home and ate them, all 5 ounces, and returned to my activity. I didn’t want to mess up this first day!
4:00 snack – 10 ww crackers, 1/2c strawberries, 1T raw almond butter
This snack was delicious! I put a little dab of almond butter on a cracker, then topped with a half of strawberry! Mmm!
Received a note from Maggie telling me that I would be doing a 5K before the year’s out to get my feet wet for the Disney event. Excellent! Apparently, we will be discussing this tomorrow at my first personal training session. I’m so excited! I think my blood sugar is actually been steady all day. Yes, I could take a nap, but I’m not going to. I’m going to eat dinner with my family, get clothes and food ready for tomorrow, then go to bed earlier.
6:45 ate supper with the family. 8 oz. chicken breast, 1c steamed broccoli, 1c brown rice, Mrs. Dash. I got totally sidetracked by making dinner for the rest of the family that I forgot to add the onions and scallions! That would’ve made it taste better. It was good, but it could’ve been better. I basically made a chicken broccoli stir fry with a little oil and garlic for the rest of the family. Didn’t have any low sodium soy sauce, so I didn’t use any for myself. I need to put that on my shopping list. You can see how not exciting this dinner was. I cut up the chicken and put the broccoli in the bowl before the rice was finished, then I just dumped it on top. It actually tasted pretty good, but was a bit boring.
I’m going to get my clothes and food ready for tomorrow, then it’s to bed. Personal training at 8am.
