So, after today, I will be only recording my exercise on my original blog, Life With the Carey Gang, on the sidebar towards the bottom.

I will probably be back to post on this blog again, but for now, I will stay on track that way...

see ya there!

Today was my day of rest from my standard workout, but those of you who know what a workout it is to get kids ready for church and out the door by 8:30 am, know what kind of a workout that is! :~D

Good day with my diet, until evening, that is. Noelle is to dang good of a cook!

1073 calories/34g fat/80g protein
Lemon squares
2 Snickerdoodles
(don't even want to think about how many cals those are!!)

A breakthrough....

Today, for the first time since I pulled that silly little muscle, I ran more that 2 1/2 miles. I think that I had a phobia a little bit about pushing it farther...

Ran 3 miles 31:34

62 min Tae Bo

Total Exercise for the week:

5 hrs 43 min

It was also pointed out to me bya good friend that I haven't been eating enough protein....

So I am also going to keep track of that, too.

(Thank You, Laura - I feel much better tonight, and I ended up eating fewer calories!)

1090 calories/ 39g fat/91g protein

A Better Day!

Today I managed to stay on track...

Calories 1209 /18.2g fat


2 miles 19:23

48 min Tae Bo

It's feels great to get back to running again, even though it feels like I've run 6 miles when it's only been two. What a difference those extra pounds make, and not in a good way!

Ok, so yesterday was a complete bust . . . again

I didn't exercise, and I ate a ton of homemade caramel popcorn. So now I have two goodies that I must stay away from: Brownines and the before-mentioned popcorn.

So I have decided to do what I know works -
In addition to exercise and journaling what I eat,
I will not have any sweet treats until I reach my goal. (130 lbs).

I say "sweet treats" because I don't feel the need to hunt down and throw out of my diet everything that has a little sugar in it.

I will just stay away from the items that are mostly sugar, that make my appetite for more go wild and crazy.

I am not one that can eat good stuff like that in moderation. It's a good thing that I like to exercise, because that has held off a lot of cellulite (but unfortunately not all of it!)

So, starting today, I will not eat those yummy goodies that I've mentioned, nor others like them, from now until I can shed the lbs.

Wish me luck!
