Day 16: Walk and Salad feel so good

On Day 16 I started the day running (but not literally).  Mondays are always hard because Hava has dance class first thing in the morning, so we have to eat breakfast, get ready and head out the door.  So we did that and then have some fun friends over!  It was a good start to the day.  I made a fabulous salad for us mom's while the kids enjoyed some tasty kid food!  It was good fun to sit and chat and catch up over the past few months.  Then I went for a 4+ mile walk with Sammi after the kids went down for nap and daddy came home.  It was a great walk!  Great pace, and we talked about our soaps.  It was fun to just chat about non-sense.  Then I had another great salad for dinner and out the door for bible study.  It was an all around good day!

I made both lunch and dinner's salad with:
spinach, roma tomato, cauliflower, pepper jack cheese, Mrs. Dash, apple and spray walnut vinegarette.
For lunch I added Grilled Tilapia.  For dinner I added Seafood Medley that had shrimp, calimari, muscles and clams.
I had a popcorn snack for after dinner.  I only at 1090 calories yesterday and burned about 600 on my walk.  I was glad to see the .4 lb weight loss.  every ounce counts!

I am so inspired by all of my friends and family!  It makes this a fun adventure!

Nice goin' girl! I've never been much of a salad girl, but I'm quickly learning to love them! And, how were those 'tini's anyway?

Heidi said...

Salads are great. However today...not so many.

Thanks BYG for the excitement. It is really exciting!

Even though we started at the same weight, you are loosing it faster than I am. I am not discouraged though because I am losing some. I am still off of dairy, caffeine, alcohol, sodas and artificial sweeteners. This has made a huge difference in how I feel. I also found out that my vitamin D3 level is really low again so I have added that and my energy level should increase. I am more active now and I do something physical everyday. The dosage of one of my meds was increased so it makes me drowsy but I don't let it consume my whole day or frustrate me into eating poorly. I have lost 2 pounds and I feel better all over. My biggest help are the nights I go to bed early. I can't eat all those late night snacks before bed and let all those calories just sit there and turn to fat while I sleep. I love my Wii Fit. It keeps me accountable too.
Great Job on your hard work and willingness to just go for it and do whatever it takes to make this happen.
Even if you don't feel thirsty, your body needs lots of water and a lot of it is used in your intestines to digest your food and help the nutrition to enter your blood stream. More water will help you lose weight too.
I love reading your posts. It is super helpful to do this with you.
Lots of love, Taisa
