Woke up just as the dog was about to puke on the bed. Thank goodness for that inner radar!

Down to 146.8! Yahoo!

Walked 80 minutes this morning, a round-about way to the rail trail. Wore wrist weights for the first time (no problem except for sweat). Included a couple of long uphill climbs (leave it to Shayna to take a poop halfway up the first one!).
4.51 miles
9624 steps
84 minutes
avg 3.3

Pre-walk: 2 cups coffee, fruit n yogurt mix (what little was left), one egg-white. After walking--HUGE appetite! So glad it's a cereal day! Treated myself to a variation of the usual suspects; instead of Total I had (yummy) Oatmeal Crisp. the kitchen; more sweat.

Bike ride, sweeping the front porch, then back to (ugh!) scrubbing the kitchen. Want to see it spotless, inside & out!

Sunday...the one day of the week I allow treats. Maybe popcorn and a movie? Considering how well I've stuck to my guns this week I think I've earned it. (8:30 p.m. already, can't bring myself to do it--maybe tomorrow?!)

Realistically I'm going to eat things like popcorn every once in a while, so I may as well do so & learn what it does to my "numbers." Realistically If I don't incorporate the occasional "not-so-healthy" foods into my diet I may end up splurging on them instead at some point, and what good is that. Better to be realistic, and learn more about them.

Biggest weaknesses:
popcorn (more so in the colder months; will stop buying microwave & go back to popping my own)
ice cream (only in the summertime, thank goodness! Switched to light, and substituting more phillyswirls)
!!CEREAL!! (still eating, but only 2-3 days a week & in moderation)
Hershey's Kisses (a couple here & there are fine, just don't keep 'em in the house anymore).
Rice (okay, after this last box of instant is gone, it's brown from now on. Again, moderation is key. Mixing in spices instead of butter & salt is also critical.)
chinese food (well, no matter what it's gonna hurt, so just limit it to a few times a year. Same goes for pizza. Eat sushi instead!)
sushi (yeah the sticky rice ain't great, but as a whole it's pretty darn near perfect.)
coffee-mate liquid creamer (flavored soy milk is a very good substitute, and soooo much healthier!)

Totals for the day:
