Not sure how much shopping I am planning on doing but I am going for a walk with hubby and the Pugs later. First I have a hair appointment as it's getting a little unruly and I need a confidence boost. I went walking yesterday at work (5 blocks) and that felt good. So have started to incorporate some exercise into my routine. Wish I could do a bit more at a time but this crappy artificial knee limits me to how much it will tolerate at one time. The oxymoron is I know if the weight comes off the knee will function better, man everything in life seems to be centred on how much a person weighs.
I was reading Jenny's blog and she was talking about being a perfectionist. I can totally relate as that is me also. Yet the one thing that I have never been able to be perfect at is controlling my weight. Strange how that is, but the operative word in that sentence is controlling, I have to learn that I have no power to control anything especially when it comes to things around me.
4 canned apricots w/juice drained off (60 calories)
4 oz yogurt (35 calories)
1 cup maxacchino (60 calories)
1 serving shell-less taco salad (380 calories)
4 oz clamato juice (35 calories)
4 oz pork tenderloin stirfried w/1 tablespoon sweet & sour sauce (245 calories)
6 oz stirfried veggies (celery, mushrooms, peppers, onions) (50 calories)
4 oz salad w/1 tablespoon dressing (60 calories)
1/2 cup diet jello w/1 tablespoon whipped topping (15 calories)
I prepared the stirfry a little differently tonight as before I was adding the vegetables to the meat and then measuring out 10 oz (4 oz meat & 6 oz veggies), but I think I was getting more protien than veggies so decided that this way I was getting exactly as I was supposed to. All total is 940 calories for the day and I feel fine, lots of energy and no cravings. This is so simple to follow and tastes so good I can't believe that I have fallen so many times. I did about half an hour on the Wii this afternoon as it was too cold to go for a walk. We had a strong north wind and snow flurries this morning and the Pugs hate being cold. So thought I would substitute the Wii for the walk. Think I'll do some bowling this evening as that is always fun too.
