Thursday and Friday

I totally forgot to post yesterday for Thursday, so here’s for that and Friday.

On Thursday, I did really well with my calories. My calorie count was 1409!!! Probably the lowest I’ve had it end up in a long time. I ended up deciding that I wanted to hang out with Jeff instead of going to the gym, so I did the Wii Free step while we watched a TV show. I think I’m going to stop doing that program though because every time I use the balance board, I end up with very sore shins for the next 2 or 3 days, and I think that I’m straining a muscle which occasionally prevents me from doing more exercise for a couple of days. It probably happens because I can’t wear shoes on the balance board, and that’s likely affecting my steps. So I decided that I’m going to get a real step and do it myself on that. I’m kind of looking forward to it!

On Friday, Jeff and I agreed to go out for our dinner, since we had both worked out 5 times. I ate a little less throughout the day so that I could splurge a little bit, but I definitely didn’t starve myself. We went to On the Border (they have great food) and my total calorie count for the day was 1510!!! I can’t believe I did it, but I did!!! It was awesome!

I got up at 11 this morning, and figured that even though I was getting up late, I should eat breakfast, so I made myself a bowl of oatmeal with skim milk and 1 T. of maple syrup. It was pretty good. Then to pair with the weather, I had some tea. Really, a nice morning!

We just decided we’re going to the beach for the night so I have to keep this short. I’m going to bring my weights and a video with me so I can still get my exercise in.

Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Great job! Way to be. That's tough stuff. I have a hard time with restaurants. Woo-Hoo.

    Have so much fun at the beach!

  2. wow! congrats on doing so well. There is something about doing so well for yourself that gives such confidence. Keep up the good work. I am sure your weigh in will show all your hard work!!!
