Day 2 of getting healthy

Hi everyone! Here I am at the conclusion of Day 2 of my LCJ. Here's how I did:

Breakfast: Special K with skim milk
Snack: 100 calorie granola bar (forgot my fruit at home)
Lunch: 3 inch sub (leftover from Friday), 2 helpings taco salad, 1 helping pasta salad, 1 piece German chocolate for improvement here
Dinner: homemade grilled chicken wrap (multigrain wrap, spinach/romaine, some shredded cheese, grilled chicken) and some ranch, waffle fries with melted cheese and some ranch.....cheese and ranch???

Exercise: 1 hour walk around the neighborhood with hubby Food is an issue. I have an obsession with carbs (at least it seems that way), so I'm going to start improving it. I purposely made extra grilled chicken and will be having a grilled chicken salad every day this week for lunch. I also bought Honeycrisp apples (YUM!) so that will round out my lunch. Yes, I will have my regular ranch dressing, but I'm not one to completely soak my salad in dressing, so I don't think that will make a huge deal right now. Breakfast will continue to be special K until I finish my box. Then, I have english muffins and plan to make an egg and put it on the toasted muffin. From past experience, that type of breakfast will keep me fuller longer.

Tomorrow will be Week 1 Day 2 of C25K. I'm trying to decide if I want to do the same sequence I did yesterday (jog 2 min, walk 3 min) or do the original program (jog 60 sec., walk 90 sec.). I guess we'll see what trips my trigger tomorrow!!!

So, stay tuned!

  1. Do you do the fork trick with your dressing? When ever I have salad, I ALWAYS have the dressing on the side and dip my fork in it before picking up the lettuce. That way, each bite has dressing, and you cut WAAAAY down on the amount you eat by just pouring it on top.

    Stick to it, woman. ((Hugs))
