Misc and What I Ate: Tuesday, January 5

Confession: I ate some mini Reese's pb cups at work yesterday. Thankfully, they're all gone today, so no more temptation. I will settle for my Sugar Free Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip hard candy. It's almost the same!

Otherwise, yesterday went well, back on the wwwagon, so to speak. I rode 35 minutes at the gym, but it's crazy how much I can tell when I've been sedentary for a week or so...I was tired out, and it was less than I was riding (and a shorter distance) before Xmas! Still, it's a process, and I'm positively reinforcing myself that it was good to get moving. I also almost caved into hot chocolate (oh, I wish literally) later in the evening, as it was SO COLD out, but I gave myself 10 minutes and then decided to have orange tea with Splenda and a splash of skim. Much healthier, and still yummy!

In personal victory news, yesterday Northwest Airlines/Delta awarded me a $25 travel voucher in response to a complaint e-mail I sent them about my terrible long line/no employee experience coming back from Christmas. ANNDDD I accidentally ordered 2 identical DVDs (gifts) from Amazon when I meant to only order one (I've done this before; I have an itchy clicker finger), and Amazon agreed to cover my shipping costs for my return. I feel smart. Now all I have to do is be responsible and write my thank-you notes from the holidays. Oh, and research this supposed "deductible" that my insurance company is claiming I owe, but that I think I already paid...thrilling, right? But hey, those are the two things standing in between me and complete non-worrying. Today, at least.

Oh, ok, to business. And I promise I don't/won't eat the same thing every day; it's just that I'm on a kick and it's hard to cook a variety of meals for one person! Lucky you/me, tonight I'm stopping at the grocery store on my way home. Need more lunch stuffs.
B - coffee, Special K with Red Berries, Milk (4)
L - turkey and swiss on sandwich thin with L&T, Miracle Whip light and mustard; apple (5)
D - brown rice with vegetable tomato sauce and cubed chicken (7); romaine salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, homemade vinaigrette (2)
S - light string cheese (2)
Total - 20
Activity - 30-40 minutes of stationary bike riding at the gym (at varied resistances) AGAIN

When I get readjusted to exercising, I'll branch out a bit, but for now, it's slow & steady.

More later, if I feel entertaining!


  1. Hey girl! I didn't know you blogged! How cool:) Way to go on the WW thing! I need to start counting my points more regularly. I get off the wagon and it's hard to get back on. On a good note, I ran 3 miles today out in the frigid cold, so I guess I'll excuse my bad eating habits...at least for today:) hehe. So cool about Pioneer Woman!! OMW! That is soo awesome! Totally jealous of your friend who got to meet her:)

  2. Oh dear, I forgot that commenting on yours would show you mine! :) I really don't expect anyone to read this, it's mostly just for my accountability. And yeah, I'd say you're doing well with the running--I admire runners, especially as I don't think I'll ever be one. And WW is hard to maintain when you have a real life (and a social life), but it can at least get me back down to where I was 2 years ago. Good luck and feel free to comment here if you want to WW chatter!
