8/27/2008. Day three of walking challenge.

Worked most of the morning, late start for the walk (11:30). Pain level is higher than it's been (4-6), definitely thwarts my mobility. Darn! Don't understand why the pain's high today, maybe I overdid it yesterday? Either way, think I'll keep it closer to home today just in case it overwhelms me.

Finally under 150 and down another pound--yeah! Staying below my suggested calorie range really helps. Although I wonder what the new, fancy scale will show. This old thing has always been pretty reliable, but will it sync up with the new one? I'll know in a few more days...don't want to get too excited until then.

Off to walk...

I can't believe there are so many winding wooded trails within minutes from my house! How is it that I never knew this before?
Walked around the school grounds & by the ball fields, mostly just to keep off of concrete. Just by dumb luck found a path that led into some woods & from there discovered an incredible maze of paths leading in every which direction, through woods & fields of tall grass...just wonderful!

Rail-trail's got some stiff competition!

Gotta admit it was a little spooky; guess that's the big city girl in me, never stop looking over my shoulder. Next time I'll bring a whistle, and maybe a small spray can of something.

Sure wish I had a walking buddy...the dogs are too friendly.

It really helped to stay off of concrete. Soft grass & trails & after a while I forgot I even had a pinched nerve.

Pain level really intensifying as day drags on. Took the additional mg, no help. Don't understand this!

Great lunch mix today! Fresh frozen veggies, mixed together in a bowl with a bunch of spices & a tsp of grated parm...surprisingly good! Peas, baby lima beans, a couple of brussel sprouts, some green beans & pearl onions. Who'da thunk it...a 1/3 of sun-dried tomato matzo on the side & a plum for dessert. Felt full for most of the afternoon.

Dinner: the usual salad tri-colored rotini with Newman's own sweet onion/roasted garlic sauce, fresh broccoli, a few sliced green olives, & a 1/4 cup of shredded skim mozzarella. Total calories for the pasta only came to about 260! Not bad...

Okay, only used 947 calories...don't know how I managed that but I think I'm gonna treat myself to something. Popcorn & a movie? PB&C Dark Chocolate dreams? ICE CREAM ??!!
