Another Day...

Well, obviously, I did not post yesterday!.... It turned into a pretty busy day! I didn't do too bad with my diet yesterday, but it wasn't one of my best days!... I won't post my food journal for Wednesday only because I'm not even sure I remember everything, and I know there were a couple of things I didn't have calorie information for... blah, blah, blah.... So, let's just call today a NEW DAY!!:)

Today has been a bit of a crazy day so far! But I did get a workout in!! And I've also done pretty good with my diet so far.... So, my workout today went something like this... I had the kids all set up and occupied this afternoon since I didn't get a workout in while they were "napping." Well, being the adorable and curious kids that they are I certainly couldn't get a 40 minute workout in without a few interruptions! But no big deal, I still completed 40 minutes of the advanced taebo workout, even if every time I got my heart rate up, I had to stop it to refill a drink or accommodate one of my sweet children!!! They are my joy--so, I'm happy to do it! I just think it's funny how sometimes they pay no attention to me until I seem to be occupied with something else....:)

Anyway, today's food journal so far:

Breakfast: small bowl of multigrain flakes and toasted oats mixed with skim milk, then a small bowl of fruit loops (I couldn't help myself this morning!...) = 250 calories

Snack: fruit snacks = 100 calories

Lunch: 2 tblsp. peanut butter w/ 18 pretzels = 300 calories

I'm almost done with my 3rd liter of water. So, I will most likely drink 4, maybe 5 by the end of today. I'm having some pasta and whole wheat toast and steamed veggies for dinner. Then, as has become my routine, I will most likely polish off the day with a cup of hot chocolate and cool whip!.... I haven't calculated all those calories yet, but I will probably post tonight or tomorrow about it!...

P.S. I need to poise myself for this weekend. My youngest is turning one and we will be having family in and doing some celebrating!!! I don't want to live a life where I never eat anything chocolate or sweet (which obviously I don't anyway!)... So, I'm not at all afraid of having the sweets! I just want to do my best to stick to my allotted calories so I can stay on track! The weekends are usually harder anyway, but especially when there is a special occasion! So, I will be doing my best to make room for the sweets! And I may even try to get some sort of workout in this weekend--even if it's a walk or something! I will keep you informed!....:)

It sounds like you are doing great and I love your attitude about knowing that deprivation is not the key, good portions and bites of everything!

One already? How do these babies grow up so fast? Can I just tell you that I love that you see your children as your joy and not as a nuisence? Just that you say it out loud. It is a great reminder for me, cause I HATE being interrupted but God did give them to me and they should be my joy.

So that's what I took from your post today!

i'm SO glad you got something positive out of my blog!... i was kinda thinking earlier today--my blog doesn't really have a whole lot of content--it's truly just my own personal health journal, basically... so, i'm glad to hear that someone is getting something out of it!:)
