Exercise

12 hour day, ugh. Meetings for the first 2/3, then some problems running software at a customer's site I had to sort through. It's funny, I used to eat only about half my calories in a day before dinner, and then I'd eat a lot (relatively) at night. Now I'm eating more in the morning/lunch, and less at night -- my fear before was that I'd eat more in the morning/lunch times, and still eat a lot at night. Untrue, apparently -- this past week, at least.

I still think I should get a medal for working 12 hours, stopping by the grocery store to get something healthy, and then exercising. I almost skipped. Glad I didn't, as it destressed me some, and let me watch a little TV.

Going out to dinner tonite, so I am going to try to be really good today! still owe points to last week---


Just say OINK!

4 wine-------------------8
10 mussles in sauce------???
Large piece of salmon with sauce---???
kimchee rice-----???
most of a piece of "really rich chocolate cake with chantilly sauce and cream"----10,000?

So, needless to say I was way over. Really can't even try to estimate this travesty. So new plan. I will be trying to stay at 20 points through sunday to partially "pay back" today and last week, but am going to stop my running total of my weekly bank and start fresh on Monday. I think it would be a mistake to try to go forward with this many points hanging over my head.

ps - Bailey - I may do what you suggested. I like seeing what everyone else is eating and the exercising - it's inspiring.:) I think it will help me.

And the exercise... well, I came back late from bowling, and didn't feel like hopping on the bike. Bowling is exercise! Sort of. Just very, very low impact exercise.

Exercise
30 minutes on the exercycle

I found this cool little Mediterranean cafe near where I was attending meetings today, and they had great vegeterian-type food. I meant to get the spinach pie, but they were out, and so decided just to order what my friend got. They listed all the ingredients and it was homemade. Plus, they didn't use any oil, but instead had a thing of olive oil out so that you could add however much you wanted to your food. I skipped it on the hummus and tabouli salad. Too bad there's not a neat place like that around where I normally work.

FRIDAY (this is gonna be a bad day for OP)

Thanks Rabbit!! I think I'm finally hooked on exercising first thing in the morning (it only took 2 yrs!!). I used to go after work but I found I couldn't stay with it and also I would spend my day trying to find excuses not to go to the gym. Now when the alarm goes off (at 4:45 am:o) I don't allow myself to think. I just get up and I'm on the treadmill at the gym before I have the opportunity to talk myself out of it. So far it's worked for me.

EXERCISE:
55 min treadmill (4.25 miles)
10 min crunches & stretches

BREAKFAST:

1 crab puff

Exercise
22 minutes on the exercycle
1 hour plus some, bowling

Okay, I'm not sure if bowling counts much for truly aerobic exercise. I put in a token 22 minutes on my bike because I was running late, and had to get ready before my friend stopped by. It was hard trying to figure out something for dinner that was reasonably healthy and low cal, was vegetarian, would fill him up, and would satisfy his 'basic food, meat and potatos' leaning. Tortellini seemed pretty generic, though, and it was fun working on the meal prep together. I live alone, so usually I'm just in the kitchen by myself.
