5 Weeks…Day 1

May 28, 2015

It’s so much fun to write a blog post when I’ve had a really successful and healthy day!

It felt good just writing my blog yesterday morning knowing I had a goal for the next five weeks.

On Tuesday, I walked 6 miles with a friend in the afternoon and watched Extreme Weight Loss on Tuesday night, so I was feeling energetic and motivated to set some goals.

Yesterday, I worked at the food truck, and I did end up eating my lunch there. I ate a burger with no bun, no cheese, no mayo, but I enjoyed it with the avocado corn relish that we serve on one of the burgers. So, while I had planned to not eat at the food truck, what I ate was a good choice, and I kept within my points for the day.

After work, I took the dogs on a walk. The route is 0.4 miles.

After that walk, I went on a 6.2 mile walk/run with a friend.



After dinner, Mike said….”Lets take the dogs for a walk”, which he NEVER says….so we repeated the 0.4 mile route.

At the end of the day, I did not go to Jazzercise, but I did walk 7 miles!

I tried a new Roasted Chicken and Vegetable recipe for dinner and Mike and I both loved it! It’s another SkinnyTaste.com recipe, and her recipes are always tasty!

 Click HERE for the recipe. (The recipe calls for chicken thighs. I used chicken breast.)
