doing well

wednesday and it's FREEZING today. wowee wowee. but it's ok. last night for dinner i had peas, cauliflower with frank's chili lime hot sauce, and mix of tuna, onion, and sun-dried tomatoes mixed with mustard, baked until hot, and served over a slice of multigrain toast. i made way too many veggies so i have a bit left for lunch today YUMMY. i knew i really should eat tuna when i was STILL craving it. maybe i heard john tesh talking about mixing it with mustard or something haha.

so canadian girls, i have a freebie for you. it's a 32 page guide to your health called live well: a woman's guide to optimal health. i can't vouch for how good it is because i just ordered mine this morning. but why not order it? it's free (my favourite price).

i am feeling good about my weight and health, but i'm not stepping on the scale until friday because a) it's tom, which truthfully i don't think affects me as much as other women and b) i don't want to get discouraged.

i got up again this morning and walked for 60 minutes on the treadmill. i bumped my speed up to 3.8 mph and changed the incline from 0% to 11% every 1.5 minutes. EDIT: i also forgot to mention that i actually went swimming in the condo pool last night - only for about 1/2 an hour and definitely not strenuous, but it was fun and i will go again soon.

here is my menu today:

breakfast:
pc blue menu multigrain oatmeal with added flax
clementine
coffee

snack:
toffee yogurt

lunch:
leftover peas, cauliflower and tuna mix
clementine

snacks:
vanilla yogurt
cinnmon roll oatmeal

dinner:
not sure as my boyfriend is coming over tonight.

ps. it turns out my kitchen scale was not delivered because UPS didn't have my apartment number - GRRRRRRR. hopefully it will come soon now that it's cleared up.

Sara said...

hmm I love tuna.

Thanks for the book tip - I've just ordered mine!

Jenn said...

I love tuna too. But I hate mustard, so I won't be having that combo!

I'm so jealous of how you got to go swimming - I miss summer and swimming so much right now!!

Hmmm tuna and mustard? Sound interesting actually.

I'm not stepping on the scale again until Friday again! I keep jinxing myself and wondering what's going on. I KOW I'm losing weigh because I can feel it but I'd like to see that nice big number on Friday!

Good job on the exercise front! Wahooo!

I ordered my copy! Thanks for the link! :)

Hopefully you get your scale soon. I reaaaaaaaallly dont' like UPS. Always problems with them.


good for you for going swimming!! I love having a pool in my apt. It's so convenient & fun!

Hope you get your scale soon . . . I hate waiting for stuff in the mail. Makes me crazy!

Erin said...

I will NEVER get on the scale if I think it will discourage me. I always wait a few days until I think it will be better. Maybe that is cheating, but whatever.

Cara said...

I should have had that same reasoning on why not to step on the scale this morning. Boo. Stupid scales. Hahaha.

Good job working out and going swimming.

I am thinking warm weather thoughts for you, maybe it will get to you through osmosis. :-)

bionic: add it!

sara: no problem

jenn: i used to hate mustard until i realized it was the lowest calorie of all the condiments... now i can appreciate the taste.

carolyn: i have managed not to step on the scale yet... my results tomorrow better be good!

lex.d: it was you always talking about swimming that inspired me to go!

runnergirl: hoepfully they didn't send it back to home depot :(

erin: it's not cheating, so long as we actually get on a few days later.

cara: keep thinking of the warm weather please... it's not working yet! lol
