No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Cold weather makes me want to sleep in and snuggle on the couch. This morning was no different, but I got up, put on my winter running gear (thanks to my loving hubby who didn't complain about spending money on the new stuff), and headed out the door. I ran a 5k today. Still slow, but I bettered my time again today. With my warm up and cool down walking, it took me 39:48. Slow wins the race, I keep telling myself.
My friend at work and I have made a plan to start weight training together at the gym two days a week. I'm kinda excited. Also, another co-worker invited me to come with her to the cycling class. I'm nervous about that since I've never done it before, but if she promises to help me out and come with me, I think I might try it. Yay for venturing out of comfort zones!
Here's the meal plan for today:
B: coffee w/creamer--I had brought breakfast, but didn't get to eat it until lunch time
L: 1 chicken fajita (leftovers from last night) and 1 apple (sliced)
Snack: 2 mini candy bars, 1 cookie (like Chips Ahoy), 1/4 c. chex mix (there were snacks at our meeting)
D: steak and pepper hoagie sandwich (with 1 oz cheese), 1/2 c. garlicky kale (Dinner was delicious! I love the Fresh 20!!!)
Dessert: skinny blueberry cobbler (recipe adapted from: http://honeyandnutmeg.blogspot.com/2012/07/skinny-blueberry-cobbler...)
Amazing side note: I got asked if I wanted to go to an exercise class by a coworker; something that has never happened before; probably because it was obvious I never exercised; I am now someone who looks like I am in shape enough to be asked to have an exercise buddy. It feels pretty good. :)
