I’m going to be eating out at lunch and supper today. And then I’m eating ‘out’ for breakfast, lunch, and supper tomorrow. And supper Saturday. So this is all a bit of a challenge for me, especially because the odds are that I won’t be able to squeeze in the gym today — and definitely not tomorrow.
Will weigh in tomorrow, and that will help my focus.

Anyone else having problems with commenting-trolls? I just delete them all, but it makes me think of this site with dread because that chore is always involved.
Just set the settings from public to no-search-engines in case that helps….Posted by power8 on June 27th, 2011 under General | Comment now »
So today has been all one mad rush, but here’s where I stand so far…. Would like to have walked home, but ran to the bus (which was then late) and didn’t grab my sneaks. Wonder if I can walk home in the rain with my slacks pinned up to my knees and vibrams on my feet?
B (8 AM): coffee w/half and half; chai w/skim milk; cherry yoplait
L (1 PM): 2 deli slices turkey, lofat swiss, on 2 slices white bread

Walked the half — 13.1 mi — in less than 3 1/2 hours! It rained the whole time, but that was probably a good thing. What a great experience. I’m looking forward to doing it again, despite how exhausted and sore I feel today!
In case I need to remember next year: I ate salmon/rice/spinach (and a glass of wine) for supper the night before. Breakfast was a banana, tall glass of water, and a little coffee. I packed energy bar things for the walk, but didn’t use any of them: grabbed gatorade and water at every hydration station and a goo gel at the Nugo stop (disgusting taste, but it helped). Put Icy-Hot on my calves before I walked, and my calves are fine. My hips, however…. Oy.
So last week and this weekend I was not tracking food or exercise much, just trying to listen to my body. Ditto today. But tomorrow I need to be conscientious again and get back on track.Posted by power8 on May 16th, 2011 under General | Comment now »
Spring has sprung, the grass has riz….

might walk home.Posted by power8 on May 11th, 2011 under General | Comment now »
Half-marathon is in 5 days (I’m walking it). I’m starting to get a little excited/nervous now that it’s close! Walked about 8 miles yesterday, which has been my longest walk so far, and everything went well. I’m not going to set any time records, but my goal is to do it: to finish, to finish under my own power (bad knee, asthma, and all), and to finish under 4 hours. I want to have an experience and to have fun while I”m experiencing!
In the meantime, I’m up yet another pound. While I wouldn’t say that i’ve been dieting, I’ve been eating carefully and moving a lot. Danced at the reception, did a 3 mile walk from the hotel, etc. I have to trust the process, I guess.
This week, because of the upcoming 13 mi walk, I’m not going to worry about limiting my food quantity, but will try to focus on eating healthfully and staying loose.
B (7 AM): lite vanilla yogurt w/blueberries and kashi; coffee with half-and-half
L (1 PM): Dunkin Donuts veggie eggwhite flatbread (yum), water
S (6:30 PM): meeting at which I’m to be roped into pizza, so will keep it to one slice and not stress. [Update: OK, two slices. But I didn't succumb to the soda pop.]
Hopped off the bus on the Blvd and walked in (~.75 mi).
