Short Legs, Tired Legs

May 25, 2016

Egads. This walking challenge thing can go smoothly if you walk 3-4 miles a day. In my case, I’ve not done that, therefore I’ve needed to play catch up! I’ve walked 6 miles a day for the last three days and these short little legs of mine are pooped! Now with 25 miles and 7 days to go, I’m in good shape.

Are you walking with me? How many miles do you left to walk in these last 7 days?

IMG_3394I got busy doing things around the house and didn’t eat a meal until around 11:30, so yesterdays eats were a little odd for me.

Here they are…

Breakfast – 1 SP

Several Cups of Coffee with 4 oz of Coconut Almondmilk divided among them.

Lunch- 4 SP

Roasted Butternut Squash, 45g of diced Ham, 6 Scrambled Egg Whites. Blueberries, Strawberries, Pomegranate Seeds (I’ve never bought these before!) topped with 1 tsp Almond Butter.




Lunch – 5 SP

Raspberries and 40 g Almonds



Afternoon Meal – 8 SP

Un-Pictured Dates and Hot Tea

Dinner – 10 SP

This is a skillet of leftover meat from grilling out on Saturday and a variety of veggies.

Chicken, Chicken Sausage, Zucchini, Caulirice, Mushrooms and Sweet Potato, all topped with half of an Avocado.


These are my 2016 Goals

    5% is an awesome goal to make! I think I’ll up my protein and see if I can’t find the 160’s again. My daughter put me in the losing mood!

    I hope you have a great summer planned! Anything exciting? Do you have any hobbies that you get to spend some time doing? I know a lot of teachers tutor. Is that on your list? Whatever you have planned, I hope you get to enjoy your summertime!

    And thanks again for always being so supportive!

    Happy Summer!

    I love me some avocado and egg. Seriously, rarely do I tire of it. I eat a lot of egg whites too, but I usually do that when it is going to be a long time in between breakfast and lunch. One egg white has 4 grams of protein in it. One egg has 6 g of protein in it. I’ll eat 4-6 Egg Whites for breakfast on a pretty regular basis. I love me a runny egg, but it just kind of depends on my schedule for the day. I also discovered my love of avocados when I started eating less cheese. I still have cheese on occasion, but I could smash up some wholesome avocado and eat it on just about anything that I would have eaten cheese on. AND…if I weigh it out in grams, I am surprised at how much I can have for 2 or 3 SmartPoints on WW!

    Okay, I’ve babbled.

    You have done a great job on the walking challenge, and you have the most entries in the drawing, FYI! 😉

    I hope your run goes great on Memorial Day!

    I STILL need to do that too! Me feet are really feeling it. I think 500 miles is about max for a good pair of walking shoes, and these are over their limit. The next pair I purchase will be my fourth or fifth pair (can’t remember) of Brooks. The one that fits my foot the best is not the most attractive shoe, but a new pair feels great on my feet and I have no issues at all. I’ve been walking for a long time, and I noticed a huge difference in my feet, legs and hips when I walked in better shoes.

    I go to a store called Elite Feet, and they watch you walk and fit you for your walk and your foot. Pricey, but I look at it as in investment in my health.


    Thanks for reading and for your kind words!

  4. Been using my excuses so much the past school year that I just decided to start over next week and work on losing 5% of my weight this summer. I have until August 11 the first day of school–(that sounds funny saying that since this is my last day of this school year (Yay!!)
    I have such a valuable resource in you so I really don’t have any excuse when I see so many creative, well plated meals.

  5. You take awesome pictures of your food. I put avocado and egg whites on my grocery list. I normally eat Greek yogurt & almonds before heading to work, but I’m going to try one of your meals this weekend. I walked four miles this morning because my Zumba class was cancelled. I have 12 miles to go. I’m actually running the last 6 miles on Memorial Day.

  6. I read in an earlier post that you needed new walking shoes. What kind of walking shoes do you prefer? Really enjoy seeing your food pictures and reading about your day. Impressed with the mileage you get in!
